Soulmates and Karmic Lessons

"Feed someone who’s that hungry and you might see some tears." 
- Unknown

Hunger here does not mean gastronomic hunger. It could imply a hunger for anything a person has deeply desired and needed but has been knowingly or unknowingly deprived of, by himself or others until a certain point in life. It could range from hunger for food to a preferment or a friendship, relationship, a human connection, fulfillment of a past life's unfinished work, or even freedom from having to live in a refugee camp after fleeing from a war zone. At that point in life, the desire has transformed into something so much big in magnitude that it has affected every other part of their being. And it has possibly even altered their soul.

Give such a person what they are hungry for, wholeheartedly and with complete kindness and honesty. And you will see uninhibition, spirituality, and eros. Maybe even contentment. And then be grateful that you were the medium chosen by the Universe to give to this person in need. And that you have a Karmic duty and connection with that person to fulfill before moving on.

Whether we like to accept or not, we are all connected to everyone we run into in our lives in small or big ways. Some of these connections are meant to last an entire lifespan while some others seem to end even before they began. Doesn't matter.

This is what the material world calls "soulmates." We are all someone's soulmate. A soulmate does not have to be only a spouse or a life partner. It can also be a parent, a child, a sibling, a dear friend or at times, a foe. It is also not necessary that one person has only one soulmate in his life. One person can have several soulmates and they will either come and leave or they will stay forever, or they will keep coming every once in a while. I always gravitated towards this unconventional concept but doubted it despite several experiences demonstrating so, until the book Eat, Pray, Love found its way into my hands this year. It has a beautiful page about soulmates and how the central character struggles to accept the true concept and purpose of soulmates (let's ignore the love aspect here and focus on the purpose explained by Richard).



We run into different people throughout our lives. Sometimes, two people stumble into each other's lives because one person is meant to be the medium to teach another something - the teaching of the other person's lessons may be active teaching, or the recipient may learn passively. Many times, both are meant to teach and learn something. The purpose of these teachings is to allow those people to evolve and move closer to the ultimate Reality, their "true Self" by eroding their samskaras, or "thought patterns," as per Sutra 1-2: योग: चित्त-वृत्ति निरोध: (yogaś citta-vṛtti-nirodhaḥ - Yoga is the control of the thought waves of the mind).

The Yogic/Vedic philosophies talk about recycling of the human soul in the form of birth and rebirth. In these cycles, we are born with some of these thought patterns - some good and some that we are supposed to discard. We are also in the course of our present life, through our deeds, creating new thought patterns, the fruits of which we may reap in the current life, or carry forward into the next. 

The sole purpose of life is to seek the Truth, the Self. Then why create new and unwanted samskaras? Why keep carrying unwanted samskaras and karmic lessons from our past life?

The funny thing about life is that it keeps making us go through things till we learn our lessons from it; ergo, "karmic lessons." Some of us are born to learn several karmic lessons and some to learn just one. And the way nature builds itself is that even if we have many to learn, it will keep putting us through the same experiences (or sometimes people) over and over again because it wants us to learn one thing perfectly and permanently before moving us to the next.

It all starts to make sense if we imagine that we all are but a painting on this huge canvas of life, playing our roles. So does it mean our lives, thoughts, and actions are pre-determined, "destined?"

No!

We, human beings, were born as intelligent creatures because we were meant to make our own decisions and think and act independently. We are made such that we can observe, analyze, introspect, and then act with complete consciousness and control of our senses. Our soulmates, karmic lessons, and samskaras are all beyond our control; what we choose to do with them and the lessons they teach, is our Karma. It is indeed easier said that done, but try to work towards erasing that unwanted samskara. Try to learn from that karmic lesson so that you can move on to the next. Thank those soulmates and whisper a silent prayer of gratitude for them.

The opportunities life presents to us is our fate; what we choose to do with it is our destiny.

Towards the end of 2015...

One of life's greatest pleasures is the ability to sit quietly without doing anything, without thinking about anything, and just reveling in deep breathing and silence, allowing everything inside and outside to come to stillness. 

Things in the material, physical, emotional, spiritual world may or may not be happening, not moving, yet being able to feel restful in the present every once in a while is what I have discovered to be a surprisingly peaceful place to be in.

For someone who is still getting over past spiritual bondage, I'm still learning this shit. But glad to have developed the patience to start trying. Grateful to my spiritual guide, big brother, best friend, and two very special friends for helping me on this path of discovering myself and finding a place for this misfit of a soul in this "normal" world. 

For most of the last seven months, you have been patiently standing by me in person and in thoughts and deeds... and I am not taking names here because you know who are. You have been the Universe's medium to protect me and I will always cherish you in my life, no matter how much distance sets us apart. You have filled my heart with so much love and my eyes with so many tears of joy; I hope to God that one fine day they make me what you all are to me today. Your groundedness, kindness, thoughtfulness, and generosity of heart are a constant reminder of the fact that no matter how bitter this world is, there is always a reason to look forward to tomorrow, and that life's purpose will eventually unfold itself!

Don't Hold Back.

Allow yourself to feel completely. And when you love, don't hold back. 

When you stop holding back, you'll be amazed at how much you are capable of giving, getting, experiencing... The true test does not lie in how much one can love someone, but whether one can still continue to be capable of loving and being loved despite being wounded in the past, having that same courage, passion, drive, and possessiveness as the first time.

Many people say choose someone who loves you more than you love them. Some say choose someone who is a better person than you. Some others talk about being with someone who completes you. I feel that we should choose someone who loves us as much as we love them, the knowledge of which cannot be measured but only experienced... Pick the one who compliments you, who calms you when you are like the wind, and who lights your fire when you are afraid to burn.

One fine day, twenty, thirty, maybe forty years later, we will be on our death bed. And no matter how much of a fulfilling life we've had, in those final moments, we are not only going to look back at everything we said and did but also ponder over the things we didn't, just because we were afraid to get hurt, just because we didn't believe ourself, in each other, in "us," because we linked true love with being together happily ever after, because we knew we'd never die in each other's arms, because we knew we'd never make it.

Know that in those final moments, we will neither be able to turn back time nor have enough time on our hands to make amends and completed those unfinished karmas.

So seize the moment. Don't hold back. Give it all you feel like. Love like you've never loved before. Bring your walls down and let yourself experience the warmth and privilege of being loved.

Lead with your heart. Express with your body. Speak your mind. Love with your soul. Allow yourself to spread your wings and fly high no matter how heavy your baggage seems. Too often we let our good, bad, and ugly past make us bitter and blinded sided. That is why we keep running into the same karmic cycles (deja vu) and samskaras (habit/thought patterns) but we fail to realize that our past was only meant to refine us and to prepare us for the extraordinary that lies tomorrow.

Look forward to tomorrow. Look forward to being extraordinary.

Believe in your amazing.

Between life and death, there is a space called nothingness. It has no beginning and no end, and it does not have sound or form. It is invisible but it is still exists. That nothingness is complete within itself and is infinite in all directions. That nothingness is the infinity between clinical death and biological death, the infinity between the demise of the body and the demise of the soul. 

That nothingness is the ultimate reality where the true Self reaches a state of complete tranquility. There is no "I" in that space. The "I" becomes nothing and everything and everyone cease to exist, and yet everything and everyone persist in that space.

Not many experience this nothingness (and return to tell the tale), and for those who do, that nothingness is the beginning of the long journey of either complete transformation or complete giving up, of either accepting to settle or wanting to seek the amazing. The reality is that God puts people through only what they are capable of going through, so the obvious choice would be to seek the amazing. To wish to become extraordinary, to accept that they were not meant to settle or to remain ordinary. It is indeed a life wasted for those who give up, for they are not just giving up on themselves but on how He created them in this life. Indeed what a tragedy it is to be a bird in a gilded cage!

Those who dream to be more than who they are, keep running into several such physical, emotional, and spiritual nothingness throughout their lifetime. It is a test of their faith in the possibility of the extraordinary, of whether they are sure they want to break open their cage and fly and not return.

We are always capable of a lot more than we think we are. We are all meant to be extraordinary. We are all capable of living our dreams and also sharing infinite love and kindness with the world around us. We are capable of breaking away from pain and fear and being free from the illusion of life. All we have to do is persist and believe in our own amazing, not the amazing of someone else.

The endless wait - एक अंतहीन इंतजार


किसी को इत्ना भी रुका के ना रखो,
की उस्का दिल टूट जाये
वो तुम्हे ही नही छोड़ के चला जयेगा,
वो खुद की खुशियो से मूह मोड़ लेगा
खुद का दिल भले पत्थर बन चुका हो,
किसी और का दिल शायद तुम्हारे प्यार की राह देख रहा है
उस्का दिल तुम्हरी अवाज सुन्ने को बेकरार है
मत तोड़ो उस्के दिल को!
वो खुद की खुशियो से मूह मोड़ लेगा,
वो जीते जी मर जयेगा

Why do we stop chasing butterflies?



Why do we stop chasing butterflies

Why do we not play in the rain

Why do we not smell the green grass in the park

Why do we give up on ourselves

Why, why, why


Why can't we dance like there's no one watching

Why can't we sing out of tune

Why can't we live without food for a day

Why don't we dress up for ourselves

Why do we give up on ourselves

Why, why, why


Why can't we make love the way we loved our first love

Why don't we let ourselves give fully and completely

Why do we allow just our lips to be kissed, why not let our souls be laid upon

Why do we give just our money and our bodies, why not our heart


Why is there manipulation, deceit, and dishonesty

Why is there no simplicity

Why is life so complicated

Why do we search for pleasure in pain, why do we search for victory in defeat

Why do we hold back, why do we give up on ourselves

Why, why, why


Why don't we dive two hundred feet into the sea from a cliff

Why can't we find one quiet place to scream our lungs out

Why are we silent in the most crowded of places

Why can't we really talk when we are alone

Why do we give up on ourselves

Why, why, why


Why don't we ride bicycles with carefree abandon

Letting the autumn winds play with loose hair, the colds freezing our faces, soil staining our dresses

Why can't we fall down, cry, beat the ground and rise back up, giggling meaninglessly

Why can we no longer turn upside down

When exactly do we start giving up on ourselves!


What are we afraid of?

Why can't we just breathe completely again

Why are we afraid of the smoke, pollution, guns, and blood

Why can't we breathe them in fully and let out all our love and kindness instead

Are we afraid we'll lose what we have? Do we fear we will be left with less?


Why can't we be grownups outside but still stay children within.

From the Diaries of Betrayed Souls: A poem

Yes, I've been keeping quiet. May be because I was listening all this time, holding on to your every word.

But I've stopped listening because now I want to talk. But as you've (gratefully) noticed, I'm still keeping quiet.

May be I am quiet because I'm afraid.

May be I'm quiet because I know you are afraid.

May be you are not ready to listen

May be you know that I know

May be you are not strong enough to hear the truth from my mouth, of all the people

May be, you are just not ready to listen...



May be I know you lied to me, maybe you know I know you failed to keep your promise

May be you didn't fight enough for the one you loved, and cared

Was it because you didn't believe enough in me? Or was it because you didn't believe enough in your faith in me?

I believed in you. I trusted you. You knew I did.

But you broke my heart. You were too weak to tell me you failed me and that you broke my trust - when you knew I trusted you more than the others.

But you decided to protect yourself when in fact I needed to be protected.



And then you say I should talk? That I should open up? When you know I know, and when I know that you know I know, how can I open up?

True friendship is not based on lies!


And I will have you know, I can't speak till you tell me you're ready. I won't take chances this time and allow my trust to be tampered with. 

I will talk when I know you are willing to understand me from my perspective.

I will bring those walls down when I know you are strong enough to climb it.

I will open my heart when I know my words will not rip apart your soul. 

I will not speak until you understand my sharp words are to let us come closer, not to push you away.

Yes, I'm sensitive, I'm vulnerable. And it is my strength. I will not change and give up on my strength just because it is convenient and just because you like it.

I will continue to care for you - rather, feel sorry for you, because you are not strong enough to be honest with yourself. But I will never trust you, at least not until you prove otherwise.

Author's Footnote: This poem not just meant for men and women who've had their hearts broken in relationships. This is for all those people who have been betrayed in small and big ways. This is for the children whose daddy said he will come home early to play ball with him but did not because he got too busy finishing off a report and forgot. This is for the people whose friends who promised they would stand up for them but did not. This is for people fleeing warring nations who were promised refuge but denied at the last moment. This is for those powerful countries on earth who make promises to reduce their carbon footprint but instead bail out, and leave others to clean up their mess. This is for each one of us who say we will do one thing but excuse ourselves and give up when it matters the most. Because the truth is, when we do not stand up for what we said we would, we are not betraying others, we are betraying ourselves. This is for us to realize that we need to learn to be honest with ourselves or else we will never be able to face our world.

Grace

Accepting love, especially the unconditional type from someone without having to give something in return can be tough for some people. These people have been wronged and scarred so many times that they build a huge unscalable wall around themselves. They are the ones who actually need more love anyone else. 


Every day I learn to accept this love from unexpected people, at unexpected times, and for unexpected reasons, I realize the heart becomes stronger, the soul becomes more enlightened, and life becomes even more beautiful.



The people who offer this kind of unconditional love and support are truly His messengers, and have great courage as they take the effort and risk to climb or even break down that wall. If you have someone like this in your life, let them in and fill you with joy. I wish I could name those lovely people here ... but you know who you are. Thanks for being able to make me laugh even during difficult times... What you have been doing for me, maybe this is what people call Grace.

Listening to Silence

Intuitive knowledge is the highest form of knowledge. It does not require logic and justification to be proven. It is correct and it is the truth just because it is. 

Intuition is the sound of silence, and therefore it is the sound of the God outside and inside us. 


Be still, be quiet, go beyond physical silence. You will hear your silence talking to you, guiding you, teaching you, giving everything you want and everything you need. The day your silence talks to you is the day you will find peace within. 



Meditate, contemplate, introspect, pray, you choose the word that suits your description. 



Continue being still while your silhouette rows its boat through darkness and through the unknown. Surrender to the depths within. Allow your mind to quietly wade through the darkness using the oars of faith.


One fine day, you'll see the sunrise and you'll float towards the light.

No questions unanswered. No tears wasted. No rivers left to fill. And only bliss shall remain.


Silence is a source of great strength.
- Lao Tzu

International Yoga Day & The Inclusiveness of Yoga


"IDAY Logo". Licensed under CC BY 3.0 via Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:IDAY_Logo.jpeg#/media/File:IDAY_Logo.jpeg



On 11th December 2014, the United Nations general Assembly passed a resolution declaring 21st June as "International Yoga Day." This declaration was made after the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his speech at the UN on 27 Sept 2014 in New York, called for the same, wherein he stated - 

"Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness within you, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day."

This call was backed by countless nations all over the world, and in less than 90 days, it was declared as a World Yoga Day. A truly apt call by the Indian head of state, who himself is a staunch practitioner of the 10000+ year old tradition.

What exactly is Yoga? 

A form of exercise? 
A form of prayer? 
A cult? A religion? An addiction?

Neither.

Yoga, the Sanskrit word for "union," has its roots in the east, in the Indian subcontinent, and is a part of the Vedic philosophies. A union of the body with the mind, mind with the soul. (And if you don't believe in the soul, that's perfectly okay; Yoga still means the union of the body and mind.)

The human body has a left side and a right side (physically); a masculine side and a feminine side.
A sun (energetic) side and a moon (calming) side.
An Ida side and a Pingala side.
A yin side and a yang side.

Yoga is the union of, the harmonizing, balancing of these polarities within ourselves. You can choose to believe any one of the above you like.You see, the Yogic philosophy is pretty chilled out about your thought process that way, so long as your ultimate goal and your path to get there is fair enough.

Or maybe think about yoga as balancing your love for a pumpkin crème Brule with a love for hitting the yoga mat/gym/spinning class/jogging at the park at the break of each dawn.

Yoga is knowing that you're spending on a pair of Lulu lemon yoga pants because you want it and not because it's the latest fad.

It is also about knowing how much yoga is too much for you. It is about knowing when to stop yourself from going further in an Uttanasana. It is about knowing when to push yourself harder in that Adho Mukha Svanasana. About realizing that maybe today is not a good day to do any standing poses.

Yoga is the teacher not teaching a headstand in a Vinyasa class at 7.30 pm even though her brain is twitching to (instead leaving it for an early morning class). Yoga is replacing a Matysendrasana with a Maricyasana to make the class inclusive for a big yogi.


Yoga is about attuning yourself with that tiny little sound in your head, with that gut feeling inside your stomach. Truly listening to it and doing what is right for you, rather than just following the herd.

Yoga is about learning how to use your breath, your "Prana" to guide you in every asana on your mat, and in every step of your life off the mat. It is about knowing when you are ready for a new responsibility at work. Knowing that it is time to let go of a relationship that no longer serves you.

Yoga is thus union of the self (yourself) with the higher Self. This higher Self is referred to as true wisdom, intuitive knowledge, or simply union with God. Who cares what you want to call it, they all mean the same any way!

Yoga is unity. The bringing together of a one flexible girl who can bend backwards into Chakrasana with an 85 year old doing a modified Surya Namaskar in his wheelchair. Bringing a mischievous 6 year old to stand still for 2 seconds in a Vrkshasana (Tree pose) and at the same time bringing an autistic child to move his arms and legs in the same flow as his teacher.

Yoga is life. Yoga is a way of life.

Why then, is Yoga being called a cult, a religion by many?

America, which is inarguably the present-day world's largest marketer of yoga in the form of its $27 billion industry, has its share of misdemeanors and controversies. Yoga being taught to school kids is being challenged in courts; there are dope yoga classes even!
Back in its home, the 1st ever #YogaDay is being celebrated all across India and the day is supported by 177 nations across the globe, from Fiji to Taiwan, from Pakistan (yes!) to Argentina. But a bunch of let's say, "groups," are opposing this move, calling it against their faith. 


Alas! Can't we all get together and just breathe? Why does everything have to be about dividing one another? Are we so insecure and fragile in our faiths that we feel one Warrior or one Surya Namaskar (without a Sanskrit chant to go with it) will unman us of our beliefs?


Yoga, with its adaptability, and more importantly, inclusivity, is meant to supplement our beliefs, to take us further on our chosen path of enlightenment. There is truly nothing wrong that can happen if we 7 billion plus people decided to just get together and breathe. In harmony with each other's breath. That is unity. That is Yoga.

The Power of Groundedness





Vrksasana or the "tree pose". This pose helps to build groundedness and balance at the same time. There are many such grounding poses in Yoga which we can benefit from.

How does one construct a sturdy, rock solid building? By using good quality materials, employing efficient and sustainable architectural techniques, keeping the local weather in mind (using construction materials and architecture which can withstand any known vagaries of nature in that part of the world), considering the needs and abilities of the potential residents, maybe some latest trends in the building industry, and so on.

But most importantly, a sound foundation is essential. Irrespective of what you build on top of it, if you want a lasting building, you need a solid foundation, a stable, unshakeable ground to stand on.

Likewise in life, emotionally and physically, we all have to have solid ground beneath our feet. That feeling of grounding is what allows us to not worry about survival and instead focus on things that matter, on things that would help us have a better life.

Powerful winds of change, fear of the unknown, too many things happening at the same time, and such bring in a feeling of anxiety, and a sense of “Where am I supposed to go?” “Is my life secure?” thus, a fight or flight feeling – survival mode kicks in. If there is nothing to hold on to, or no one to answer and clear the air, then even feelings of resentment, dissatisfaction, and frustration may seep in. These feelings light up a desire to do something drastic out of the ultimate urge to find a place of solace, a place where the ground is not as shaky.

And yes, sometimes, it does help to make a drastic movement. A seemingly harsh decision or a major upheaval is probably what is truly needed. For some of us, that tough decision is what gives us back our solid ground.

And sometimes, it doesn’t. In fact, that major upheaval may end up doing exactly the opposite of what we desired – we might end up landing on more shaky ground. Or we might end up losing whatever little (albeit shaky) ground we had.

So, is it just the world around us that is colliding, is it just the ground beneath us that is shaking, or is it us who are losing perception of what is around us, and if so, why?


The truth is, we are always “shifting” – always changing – sometimes aspects of us shift and then the other aspects catch up. Sometimes, there are perceptions that don’t seem to match what we think our reality is. The “outer world” is shifting as well; therefore, sometimes our perception of it causes disturbances or clouds our mind. This usually causes feelings of separation and confusion and agitation.

So, what do we do when our intuition is on an overdrive, everything around us is changing faster than we can handle, we feel frustrated but can't figure about what, and all of this makes us lose focus even with the things we're good at?
  

We always need a solid ground even to be able to fly, like an airplane that covers a huge runway before taking off into the boundless blue skies.

Introspection is a powerful & useful tool which most of us we seldom employ. Even if we do, many of us use it for ourselves in isolation and without keeping context of our surrounding. But we forget that, are we all (tiny but) significant parts of the larger universe!

It is our being a part of this world that makes us capable and able. We all (well, most of us) are householders, and therefore we cannot shy away from our duties in this material world. Just as day follows night, night follows day, one season follows another, in the same way, our lives keep changing. We are governed by both the natural and man made changes triggered in our surroundings. A world without change is unthinkable and impossible. The desire for change is what triggers invention, and invention begets progress. Mankind thrives on this progress. If there were no change, there would be no need to create or innovate, and our magical ability to think would go to waste... and like how unused machines rust, soon our minds too will.

The truth is, change is the only constant in life. The sooner we accept, the better it is – for us and for those around us. And when these changes happen, it is essential to find that stable ground beneath our feet.

Find your groundedness – maybe in the form of a family who you can open your heart to. Or in the form of a great job where you can achieve big things.

Maybe in the form of a favorite hobby that you can indulge in. 

Maybe by just anchoring into your breath.


A solid anchor to the ship of our sanity. To create stable ground beneath our feet. So that we can fly toward the vast blue sky full of beautiful, boundless possibilities...

Laughter is the best medicine.

Laughter is a physical reaction in humans and some species of primate, consisting typically of rhythmical, often audible contractions of the diaphragm and other parts of the respiratory system. It is a response to certain external or internal stimuli. Laughter can arise from such activities as being tickled,[1] or from humorous stories or thoughts.[2] Most commonly, it is considered a visual expression of a number of positive emotional states, such as joy, mirth, happinessrelief, etc. On some occasions, however, it may be caused by contrary emotional states such as embarrassment, apology, or confusion such as nervous laughter or courtesy laugh. Factors such as age, gender, education, language, and culture are factors[3] as to whether a person will experience laughter in a given situation.
- Wikipedia

A lesson learnt over and over again, and more so in the last four years. There was a time when people told me to stop giggling like an idiot and many times I even gave up. Then one fine day I realized the Truth with a capital T and made them give up. Got back to mindless laughter again. Turns out it was the only thing one needed to return to sanity.


There is a reason why a complete branch of science is dedicated to laughing; it's called Gelotology.


Keep laughing, because laughter does not cost anything, but your happiness is priceless. 

If you laugh like a nutjob and people think you're insane, let them think that way. Frankly, no one cares. They've lost their innocence and the art of being truly happy and living with carefree abandon and so they want you to turn into sad lives like them.


Laughter is as essential as breathing. Without laughter, the world would be a drab, dull place to live in. 


Don't worry about how you look while laughing. Laugh your most genuine laugh. Laugh your heart, soul, and kidneys and intestines out.


When you laugh, laugh like no one is watching. Laugh like there is no tomorrow. 

Laugh till your sides and jaws hurt. Laugh till there are tears in your eyes. 

Learn to laugh at yourself rather than at others. Laugh at your weaknesses, idiosyncrasies, and idiocies, and laugh at your strengths. 

Laugh when you've gone ballistic and laugh even when you've embarrased yourself.


Be ballsy enough to laugh in the middle of a crazy day at work. Find something funny to laugh about, and find some smile-worthy and beautiful in everything and everyone. 


Surround yourself with those who can literally laugh out loud at the top of their voices and bring the house down with it. Pull in those who don't laugh and tickle them till they cave in. 

Ask to be tickled silly.

Laugh uncontrollably in the middle of the road on a bus stop, so much so that you are forced to sit down and let the NOS in your system wear out. (Oh I love this one.)

Suffer from laugh attack syndrome. (Yes, there is such a thing!)


Watch Cartoon Network. Watch Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and all the Looney Tunes all over again, and almost die laughing again.


Dedicated to the Nitrous Oxides of my life - yes, you know who you are. Keep ROFLing!
