So, my husband thinks I get tired because I have put on weight. It’s not because of that but I feel that I am just tired of letting out energy which is of no reason and I am tired of going to places which involves lot of time in commuting which means there is no productivity. It makes sense to me to spend time with people who give me energy, people who lift me up rather than pull me down. It’s the time to appreciate things we have. This morning while getting out of my car, I broke my travel mug which was gifted to me by my sister. So, rather than sulking and being unhappy about it and letting my whole day go bad, I bought a rather similar looking mug from the same store which meant that I could use the accessories that were still in great condition from that broken mug. So, appreciate things you have. Let go of things or people that are of no use.
Life is short and time is just flying. Nothing is permanent, everything is passing. This is the same teaching that I have got from our guru in Vipassana Meditation. This is something that I feel and I am bringing into my daily routine. Spend time with your loved ones and with people who matter the most to you, spend time doing things you love.
Appreciate the things that you have, appreciate the people you have in your life. Let go of social media, online attention; let go of your smart phones, be in the moment. TIME is the best gift you can give someone. Give them love regardless of whatever you get from them in return. The more negative energy I receive from anyone, the more my heart wants to give to them in the form of love and compassion.
Also, spend time doing things that you love because that’s going to make you feel much better and it’s going to make your life fuller rather than doing something mundane and feel de-energized. This is what I would like to say to the world on a day like Diwali; a festival that means a lot to all the Indians around the world. Diwali is a festival of lights, so spread the message of love and light to everyone. Everyone is here for a reason and we are all filling our energy and our daily lives with these feelings and thoughts.
So, here’s wishing you all a very Happy Diwali and wishing everyone a great and prosperous new year !!
