Forgive and Forget

Lately I have been facing situations where the only way out is to forgive and forget. I emphasize the ‘and’ as I feel both are equally vital. I cannot forget without forgiving. When I choose to put this into practice, I feel a great sense of lightness within me rather than unnecessarily carrying a burden or bondage.

My inner stage

Lately, my spiritual efforts have focussed on creating and maintaining an unshakeable and immovable stage when I am in the midst of a chaotic, negative or sorrowful atmosphere. However, not only in regards to the atmosphere around me, but also when I am faced with insults and misunderstandings.

Making silence practical

I’ve been thinking a lot about silence recently, especially silence of the mind, and how to make it practical.

Silence retreats are great—time for reflection and change. But I want to be able to experience this even when I can’t take time off and escape day-to-day life

The door only you can open

When you meditate, you are in a place that no-one else can enter...

this place is yours alone...

and in this place you can see yourself clearly.

React vs Respond

On my spiritual journey with the Brahma Kumaris, one of the many beautiful transformations has been from ‘reacting’ to ‘responding’ to situations or people. People ask me, ‘well, what’s the difference between the two?’ I understood the difference more clearly once I felt the result of both within me. Allow me to share some insights on these two R’s from my experiences.

Real Diwali

Diwali, the Hindu ‘festival of lights’ is celebrated every year with great pomp, especially in India. This year’s celebrations got me thinking deeply about the spiritual significance of this festival. Although Diwali is popular in India and among those with Indian backgrounds, may I suggest that this celebration is relevant for all souls of the world?

Everyday Meditation

I meditate to re-experience my own goodness and for me this brings things into perspective. Small niggling doubts about how my life is turning out are softened. Slow burning worries about my future security (and that of our planet's) are given a more optimistic direction, not as a denial or cover-up, but rather as an inspiration to appreciate that many things are OK.

A Detached Observer

Lately I have been practicing my spiritual efforts to be a detached observer. I feel that this broad bird’s eye ‘view’ is so vital in today’s times of hurt, sorrow and suffering. For me, it has been a beautiful pivot to gain some perspective on my ‘inner stage’ whilst taping into my inner wisdom.
