KidsPlaying“The most attractive quality a person can have is not physical looks, not face, not body, nor money or favors. It is the level of self awareness, introspection, self observation and self correction.

Do we know why we do the things we do? What drives us? What impact does an action have on our surrounding people? What is the effect of our voice or sounds we make – nice or disturbing to people? The words we utter and the way we move – loving and calming; or disrupting to others? Is our presence necessary, helpful and forwarding to another”

tree1“One of the greatest blessing in life is to have someone to love beyond attachment.

The practice of love, without wanting anything from them, nor to imprison, control or demand exclusivity, yet unflinchingly give ourselves without closing up our hearts in the name of self protection. This act itself is like a kriya of purification. To love someone more than our identity, is crippling at first. But if you allow the vulnerability to play out, you discover a place of priceless connection between you and the Lord. And then it dawns on us that we are that which we love.

I call this a Love kriya. It is an internal state, something you maintain inwardly. By the time your words and actions reach the surface, they carry the fragrance of a purified love. And it is one of the most attractive quality humans can have.

So, go out and fall headlong in love. Love your parents, your lover, your pets, etc. Daringly love, and meekly surrender.”

random-acts-of-kindness-03“An empty or half empty vessel makes more sound. A full vessel makes no sound. It is silent. There is little satisfaction in mindless chatter or excessive noisy company. Other than enjoying a goal oriented life, make time for silence twice a day, even if it is only for 5-10 minutes. Just center and sit to watch your breath.

When we eventually experience silence, we realize that words are empty. Silence is complete, and whole. It is perfect. In this silence we discover a freedom, a kind of lightness which comes from knowing that we ARE this silence, and we are this completeness. From there we become a little kinder, a littler gentler.”

foxes-roeselien-raimond-3-1“Always be contented, but never be satisfied. There is a fine line but a world of difference. Contentment means being happy with our progress, happy with where we are; but dissatisfaction motivates us to aspire towards higher and better potentiality. We can be happily dissatisfied.”

spiral-galaxy-ngc1232-1920“Silence is Golden. Speech is silver. Talking in words always diminish the subject experience becoz there is only this much you can say. Whatever you say, it is always incomplete. The moment you speak, there is an unspoken part. Learn to communicate with your presence and energy, talk less, observe more, feel more. Say only that which is absolutely necessary.”

woman-in-nature-meditating“Life is so painfully and ecstatically short. Our span is but a mere whiff of star dust in a galaxy of planets. Quality of life and happiness is so profoundly simply, and most of us are still too ‘intelligent’ to get it.

Do the things that you love, be honest with yourself, go for the jugular, strive towards betterment rather than safety, choose activities and people that forward you rather than regress you, make mistakes and make sure they are always new mistakes, laugh, love, cry, have fun and most importantly, MEDITATE everyday”
