It's okay.

It’s okay. It’s okay to try and not get it right. It’s okay to not even try in the first place. It’s okay to hold on real tight and you don’t want to let go even though you know it hurts.
 It’s okay to love the wrong things.
It’s okay to love the right things.
It’s okay to be confused about life.
It’s okay to feel proud of your saunter.
It’s okay to hate your life too.
It’s okay to want to change.
It’s okay to want to stay exactly as you are.
It’s okay to want to leave.
Its okay to never want to leave.
It’s okay to feel annoyed.
It’s okay to feel happy doing nothing.
It’s okay to want to do something.
It’s okay to want help.
It’s okay to not want to take help.
It’s okay to be selfish.
It’s okay to be selfless.
It’s okay to love with abandon.
It’s okay to not want to love with abandon.
It’s okay to be afraid of the dark.
It’s okay to like being in the dark too.
It’s okay to be afraid of facing the light.
It’s okay if you can’t find the light.
It’s okay if you want to be the light.
It’s okay if you don’t know.
It’s okay if you are the only one with the answer.
It’s okay if you are the sore thumb.
It’s okay if you don’t want to be the sore thumb.

Everything is a wave in this endless ocean of awareness. Let it come and let it pass, as is the very nature of existence.
You are stillness. Motion is also stillness. It all comes from One and goes back to One.
Let it be, exactly as it is.

Ventures into Love - Day 12

Here’s how life is supposed to work; how we are taught that the world works, how we are supposed to integrate into the mayhem:
Dream big. Work for it. Be bold. Go for it NOW. Have a vision. Break the steps down into bite sized pieces and keep making progress every single day.

I am actually feeling slightly breathless, just typing those words.
The thing is, this kind of pushing and prodding, this complete reliance over one's willpower that stems from the brain and it’s storehouse of experiences filtered through beliefs that alter the experience to a nutshell of what really is, is frankly exhausting.
Sure, when we face a particularly trying situation or we are subject to an enrapturing inspiring speech, we feel charged up and energetic.
We feel like we have so much to offer, so much that we can do, so much energy to run all the way to the top, that we enthusiastically take steps, turn over new stones, meet people, network and feel euphoric.
For some time, that is.
Eventually, we re…

Ventures Into Love : Day 17

You know that awesome tingly 'I have so got this! Things are going to rock from here on!' feeling that blossoms in your gut when you take up something new, start out on a new journey and the likes?

For example, the first day of a new exercise routine, or the beginning of a new hobby… the beginning of a new job, the first great conversation with a nice person we really like, the start of a new self – help book…
Any beginning by choice and passion is a cause for joy and I think I speak for everyone when I say that.
Have you also noticed how that this feeling is confined to the beginning only, in many scenarios in life?
I'll go with an example from my own life..
Whenever I read an awesome saucy 'self help' book, I feel psyched out and buzz – filled! I write down my dreams and I take the steps happily, genuinely excited about the changes I am helping bring about…
Then comes the second stage… that stage where the previously lovely ideas and wishes and hopes start feeli…

Ventures Into Love: Day 14

When I am in my room, I find it so easy to focus on the truth of me; how loved I am, that love is all there is, I am powerful beyond imagination… the works.


 But when I am in a crowd, in class, standing in line, waiting with a group of people, I find it so hard to focus. Impossible even.

All those affirmations, beliefs and practices go right out of the window, in such situations and I am left wondering about the usefulness of  enlightenment, if it doesn’t aid you in moments of need.

I think I am not alone in this. We have all been in situations where the group's energy and currents have engulfed us completely, beyond the scope of clarity.

When we are in a group, fully aware of our body and the surrounding physical world, we begin relying on our mortal strength and knowingness.
In other words, the ego takes charge.
We can’t help but let it take charge, because it is the only way we can see in the moment to get out of the suffering. And the endless narrations and suggestions begin,…
