Come pause a minute,

Sit with me awhile,

and share your thoughts...

Something I learnt today...

from the Kabbalah...

We have to consciously make ourselves a part of something bigger if we are to be free of feelings of heaviness, depression, anger, and other bringing-down feelings.

So, what is this something bigger - I would imagine that for everyone, whether alone and housebound or part of a professional group, it would be the consciousness of being a part of your family, part of the organization we work for, part of a special group we belong to.......and finally then the consciousness of being a part of the world family...

And then to share of ourselves wherever it is possible to do so. Sharing involves reciprocation, a mutual sharing of ideas and thoughts; a feeling of 'I'm always there for you'; generosity with our time and help; being warm and kind and thoughtful; unselfishness. It means looking beyond ourselves. It means looking out for others.

Take a minute to think:

Is something holding us down?
Is something holding us back?
What sharing opportunities is the Creator sending us?
How can we be more a part of others around us?

Soon, the heavy feeling passes, for how can we be a part of people, or part of the Universe and still feel heavy/depressed/angry....?

Take care...

for you are the star of your life.

Be honest with yourself - go deep into those parts of your soul where all kinds of things are jam-packed, where maybe a coverlet has been thrown over a jumble of things, where you fear to go in case you come face-to-face with the issues you've been deferring in the hope that they will go away...

Be truthful to yourself - take out, look at, and face the deepest motives for your actions...

Be compassionate with yourself - forgive yourself, and forgive those who caused pain/upheaval/unpleasantness. Allow healing to happen...

Be responsible to and for yourself...in leaning on others, you will never learn how you tick...

Be grateful...for everything - the good, the bad, and the ugly...everything happens for a reason, so look beyond...

Be at peace with yourself - It's okay to be good, bad and ugly....just make sure you handle them as they should be handled, so that you are always in sync with every aspect and part of yourself...

Be comfortable with who you are - you were meant to be you and not somebody else...

You really ARE the star in your life...

A reminder...

from Ecclesiastes 3:1–8

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.

Wait on Him - in all things, at all times, and in all situations...

It will happen as He ordains, and not as we want or wish.

He is right.

We, on our part, have to trust...

Have got hooked to...

the idea of leading a life of simplicity and leisure, sometimes just drifting....

This has cleared my mind and answered all those questions that keep popping up about how to lead life after 60....

You actually control...

the environment around you...think about it....when you smile and are happy, you elicit smiles even from strangers and create an aura of well-being around you. Likewise, when you are fearful or angry or upset, the vibes that emanate from you create an atmosphere where those around you say things they did not mean or believe in, get tied up in their thoughts so that the words come out all wrong and there is a general air of discomfort....

Maybe that's why wise men have said that even if you are feeling dreadful, keep a smile on your face....it'll help you and allow others to help you too...

A Public School Boy is very special...

What makes him so?

Spurred by what is happening in Scindia School, I felt I just could not be a silent bystander.

Having been a part of the Public School system for many years, I strongly believe that the Public School system has a lot to offer. Like all systems there is good and bad in it, and wake-up calls happen to look at these systems anew.

The Public School set out to turn boys into strong men (and girls into strong women). In this article, I have only talked about the Public School Boy -- since he is in the news now. The Public School is a way of life, and those who have gone through it—as it was—appreciate and value it. Any wonder, then, that the Old Boy sends his child back to the school that made him what he is?


I would love for you to share my article on this. You will find it here: http://www.ibuzzle.com/articles/the-public-school-boy.html
