Gratitude and Appreciate ..!!

Namaste.!! Quiet often we use this term in our daily life. It means
“I honor the place in you where Spirit lives
I honor the place in you which is
of Love, of Truth, of Light, of Peace,
when you are in that place in you,
and I am in that place in me,
then we are One.”

How many times do we actually feel when we say it ? The day we start doing it with the feel its meant to be, you will see how that little change in thoughts while delivering that word can bring a huge change in your life.!
If you want to question about this, whether its magic or something that really work. I think its better to try somethings than to question it.! Like i might not be able to tell you the exact taste of the momos i had today, for you to know it, you have to taste it 🙂 . Hope you got my point 😀

Have gratitude each morning..! For life coz you are alive today, the bed on which you had a sleep, shed above your head, the air you breathe, the food you eat and the person who made it, gratitude for nature, for people that inspires you, for people who check your patience, compassion, peace as they are making you more stronger..!

Try a simple exercise that i have been trying to practice from years is to say “Thank You” like you really feel it.! And start thanking each person that helps you in any form. A newspaper boy, milkman, auto wala, a sweeper, a guard, shopkeeper, and the people that help as per your life.! Treat them with a smile.!

I know all of us would have been aware before and might have been taught in school too.! Sometimes we ignore the power that lies behind simple words like Thank You or appreciating someone.! It can empower other person to do things more efficiently and with more passion.!

Do you remember how a round of applauds in classroom for scoring highest in test, or the feel that you get when you receive a prize for any activity, or a good job compliment from a boss, appreciation from audience when you played in your first concert, appreciation from parents when you do well ( rare 😛 ), appreciation for a hairstyle or just getting to listen “hey you look good today”..Or many other situation you were in..!! Appreciation would have always lifted your spirit..! So why not lift more spirits around us..!!

Appreciate your life and life will appreciate you..!!

Expectation and Acceptance..!

I expect and i am disappointed.. I accept and i am Free.!!
There are times in our life when we feel very low, going into the deepest level of sadness and when everything is not the way you “EXPECTED”..!
“I expect a happy life, but all i can see is despair”
“I expect my parents to be cool, but they are strict as hell”
“I expect someone to love me back, but the person don’t”
“I expect a better salary, but there is no appraisal”
“I expect a peaceful world, but there is just violence”
Now don’t start judging my life on the basis of above lines 😛 These are just some of the expectations that many of us might be having..!!

What if we just get rid of the word “Expect” from our mind dictionary and get more use to “Accept”.
“I accept that my life is in despair but i will make efforts that can lead me to a happy life”
The moment me start accepting the universe within us and out things will turn 360 degree..! So now you don’t expect but accept whats in the present and make efforts in a positive direction.!
“I expected a Sunny day, but it rained.. So i went for a good ride to have a hot cup of tea 🙂 ”

Expect from yourself and work on it and you will never be disappointed..!!

Love.!

Its Valentines Day today and the word that would pop up in anybody’s mind would be “Love”. There can be different type of Love. Love for music, sports, food, traveling, shopping, dogs, sleeping, nature etc. Being a human being we are very versatile in relating a feeling to many other entities. The love which is most precious is shared between human beings. Now getting more into the different love feelings, we have love for friend, sister, brother, maa, paa, uncle etc.! And yes one love is for the Lover..! I just realized Lover is like a living entity for love 😀
And yes its valentines day its Love for Lovers . Hope you are now aware which Love are we talking about 😉

So lets get straight to the pointWhat is Love ??
I think each one would have a different definition for this 4 letter word, so i will be sharing what i have observed and felt.!
Few years back i came across with a quote from Osho which says “If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you . Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.”

When i read those lines i came to know how deluded i was about love.! I think we often mix up the possession and the love thing quite into each other.

For me love is an inspiration to be better, Love is to inspire other person to live a happy life. Love is to live free, Love is to be yourself, Its to be pure, vast as universe,to dream big and work towards them.

“Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful”. – Walk to Remember
