Attachment often causes Suffering- Buddha

But life is not possible without attachment e.g. If we don’t love our body/our family/ our home etc etc we won’t take care of them.

Logically speaking, We don’t love n be attached to anybody/anything to suffer, don’t we?

Suffering though is inevitable with attachment n possessiveness. What’s the Way out?

Detachment! paradoxical, isn’t it? Let us ask Mr. Buddha. Hahah.

Not a laughing matter at all. Let’s ask Mr. Laughing Buddha then.

Friends, all said and done, jokes apart, our reactions n responses (internal factors) to the stimuli n situations (external factors/triggers) decide the intensity n duration of the suffering.

Life is not meant to be a suffering for sure. Ask any preschool child who lives every moment with joyful intensity. Life is the blossomming of the flower of blissfulness gifted to each one of us by the Universe.

Let’s practice detached attachment performing our duties to ourselves n the creation in the best possible manner.

GOING with the FLOW

Going with the flow is indeed empowering. It gives us freedom to live on our terms joyously and not let the events n circumstances n situations even the ones that are not to our liking and also unavoidable to disturb our inner peace.

When we make friends with the moment as it is, we take away it’s power to pull us down.

ACCEPTANCE OF WHAT IS, IS THE DOORWAY TO FREEDOM.

One such thing happened yesterday when my Ultrasound Machine had a snag in the afternoon with patients waiting n a few scheduled for the afternoon.

With the Grace of the Supreme Intelligence directing my Finite Intelligence i realised the gravity of the situation n my helplessness.

Got hold of the problem, made some calls n postponed the scans n shut shop for the day.

Assured of the visit by the engineer by the evening, i just whiled away n waited.

During all this I was fully AWARE n PAID ATTENTION to the moment without losing cool or being frantic.

Had to cancel all the appointments n my evening engagements with myself like the walk n market round with my wife.

But just went with the flow. Neither i, nor Summi had any remorse n restlessness about missing out on the evening plan.

Grateful to the Divine for letting me go with the flow by the realisation they WHAT CANNOT BE CURED MUST BE ENDURED.

This was a great revelation and a pleasant feeling of the forward evolutionary step and a huge thankfulness.

Must Keep watching n playing the enigmatic game of life n going with the flow.

Must Keep growing inside out.

Silver lining

Travelling on Shatabdi to New Delhi.

Jerks galore.

No trouble when sitting except being careful while sipping water or coffee to avoid spilling.

Real trouble when using the toilet. Chances of mishap either soiling your pants or hitting the wall. Positioning myself well after the first jerk i realised instead of cribbing, i was thanking Almighty for blessing me with the ability, agility n capability to come our unscathed after relieving myself. That’s what silver lining is all about.

In life too, when we are facing difficult times that are not to our liking, if we change the focus from the problem to the opportunity that it brings along, we can retain our composure, stay cool n quite likely find the solution n come out good.

Wishing AWARENESS for you, me and all.

Love intensely

Whatever you do, do it with intense love. All chores n errands become effortless. Love must exude from every pore of your body. It must travel thru every neuron of your brain. Every breath, every heartbeat must be nothing but love. Life becomes a joy forever when we love each of God’s creation selflessly.

Lenses and Masks

Contact lenses are very useful. We wear them when we need them n remove them when we go off to sleep, lest they damage the eyes. They come in many colors as well to mask the color of our eyes (iris).

They have so much in common with the social masks we need to wear at our will to hide something we need not show n to project something which we don’t have to keep afloat in our lives.

Like contact lenses, we must master their use, when to put on n when to put off. If we don’t, they become glued n we tend to lose our true identity, our true self which is not a worthy bargain.

The survival of the sensitive n gentle in the society that is clever, crafty n at times cruel must make us use a relevant mask that befits the situation. As the situation dispels, take off the mask n put it in your pocket n juggle it out when another such situation pops up.

When our sight is good n color of our eyes is nice, we don’t need contact lenses. Similarly when the going for the good is congruous n in harmony with their good selves, no masks are needed. Only the treacherous n wily foxes need masks to appear good, though good people need masks of being stern n clever for preservation of their existence in the society that has its mouth  wide open to gobble them up.

Its best n desirable to put on the lenses n masks when you so need.

TV Soaps, Movies n our Lives

When we watch TV Soaps n Movies, why do we lose our selves n be so engrossed in them that we forget who we are, forget its just not true, forget its just mesmerizing ourselves to become a part of the plot n suffer the negativity or rejoice at the positive happenings in the drama.

Why can’t we be clear about the reality n the truth that it is all fiction for which we pay to get entrapped?

Why can’t we just watch n enjoy the plot n the direction n the acting n the music being totally rooted in the realization that its all a play?  Why can’t we get out of our emotional vice like grip on our responses?

In life too, why can we just be observers of the unfolding events n just flow with the waves. It is actually a big complex problem!!!

Floating on the tumultuous seas is possible only if we let our bodies loose n loose our rigidity. Flexibility is the key. This should hold true for our lives as well. Why can’t we let go of our Ego coming in the way.

When we identify ourselves with the events/ ups n downs, we fall in the trap n get tossed n bruised with a fear of even getting drowned when the tides are high, strong n the seas are raging.

Watch your getting identified with the process of life. Just be careful when you start sinking in the marshy land of identification with life events. Halt as soon as you can n start observing non-judgmentally n just unleash your fascination n awe. Just be n travel light.

The three hour movie must be enjoyable n money’s worth, so should the 0- 100 or so years of our life.

God-Frequency

The sixth sense/ intuition/ gut-feeling is an enigma as far as its genesis is concerned. But it is fantastic as far as its manifestation is concerned.

Is it due to establishing a connection with the Supreme Intelligence also called God?

Is it available to everyone?

Does it have a fixed operating frequency or does it have a broad, rather Infinite Bandwidth that is available to each one of the creation?

How can we tune in to the available frequency that is specially there for each one of us?

We must have our receptors ready and clean to produce the melody rather than keep transmitting jarring noise. Practice tuning in and be aware of changing frequencies.
