At the end of winning a rat race, we are still a rat.

problems are learning triggers

In family situations, more often than not we face situations where our opinions differ, especially in matter of finance and business. It is an opportunity for us to remember that relationships are beyond these various concepts of functionality.

But sadly, our relationships in colloquial existence are determined by functional needs and their solutions through various people. Our relationships today are based on the commercial model of give and take, centered around our need for security. One of life's greatest objectives is for relationships to transcend into the unconditional. And these events when they occur serve as spiritual teachers for us to evolve. Every moment, every event in life is custom designed for our spiritual evolution. We just need to anchor ourselves as spiritual beings and view human expereinces as opportunities for evolution. And be grateful to each of the teachers - people and events who manifest in our lives.

The whole of life acquires a magical hue then.

beautiful forgiveness intent

"I forgive everything, everyone, every experience, every memory of the past or present that needs forgiveness. I forgive positively everyone. I also forgive myself of past mistakes. The Source is love, and I am forgiven and governed by Universal love alone. This love is now adjusting my life. Realizing this, I abide in peace."

The Invitation

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living
I want to know what you ache for
And if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
It doesn’t interest me how old you are
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love,
for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon
I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow
If you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have been shriveled and closed
From fear of further pain
I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own,
without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own,
If you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.
It does not interest me if the story you are telling me is true
I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself,
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul,
if you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see beauty even when it is not pretty, every day,
and if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine,
And still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon ‘Yes!’.
It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have,
I want to know if you can get up, after a night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone
And do what needs to be done to feed the children.
It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here
I want to know if you stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back
It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied
I want to know what sustains you, from the inside when all else falls away
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself
And if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

one moment at a time....

life is but a string of moments woven together...each moment taken one at a time and lived in awareness makes for a good life. carry overs of past events burden current moments and disables existence.
