Want to find the way to god? How is it possible to reach god – still remains a big mystery to many. When one holds a question long enough in his/her mind, at some point or the other, the answer arrives. It has to. God is love. Love is god. A feeling of deep connectedness to everything that is – isn’t that love? Isn’t that god?
We don’t know if there is an ultimate destination to god. However, the way itself is so beautiful. Though our final destination is god, every human being comes to this world to fulfill different purposes before reaching the destination. The saints, masters, gurus, yogis come to earth purely to give. Apart from giving and receiving, all of us come here to learn our lessons – to love, to give, to accept and to serve. The way to god, is the way of love. We have to realize that at every moment that there is love, there is god. Silently he comes and sits in every Continue reading “The Way to God……” »
They’ll test your stamina and mental endurance. From trudging through golden deserts and scaling dazzling peaks to exploring the vast abandonment and attaining nirvana, these are some journeys that every traveler must undertake – at least once, if not more. The expeditions are arduous, but the rewards are well worth it.
Most bucket lists – apart from wishing for true love and other variables – always contain a few exotic travels. Not just gilt-edged luxury jaunts and VIP cruises, but feet-numbing, mind-boggling journeys that pit you against nature.

However, don’t write that resignation letter or book the next available ticket and dash off recklessly just yet. All these expeditions require steely strength, meticulous preparation and financial grounding.

Awaken your inner spirit!
When we feel high. we have no problems. The problem comes when we feel low. No one wants to feel low. When one feels low, then the more one tries to feel high, the more the low feelings persist. This seems to be the biggest problem. What is important about the feelings? They never stay the same. Feelings are fluid. See, you feel good now, later you don’t feel good. Then again you feel good. This continues in life. If we base our life on our feelings, we will be ruined. You feel good about something now and a little later you feel bad about the same thing. Then those feelings change yet again. Have you noticed feelings changing?
Many people are unaware of the nature of feelings. Everywhere you will hear people say, “Follow your feeling, go by your feelings, do what you feel like,” etc. What will you do? Be independent? People misinterpret what independence means. They think it means following your feelings. They think, “I do as I feel now, I do as I feel tomorrow, I do as I feel the next day.” Then there can be no stability in life.
We are unhappy if we follow our feelings. When you feel low, jump into the lowest. Be like water. That is your real nature; inside you, it is like water.

The water is the innermost part. Your true nature is like water, fluid and Continue reading “Dealing with Feelings….” »
