Love the emotion.....

A word that has been so badly mangled, twisted and churned by people, society, movies etc that it has lost its true meaning, its essence and its nature.

The word Love is an emotion. An emotion that is very basic and centric to our very existence. Yet today it is in a confused state which further causes confusions within us and makes a simple life very complex and mutated. 

Then we have the absurd concept of love and unconditional love. Well it is the most regressive and repulsive thing created about the simple image of an emotion.  Love is an emotion just like anger, rage, joy, hate, peace etc. Do we have conditional and unconditional Anger or Hate or Peace????????
Well we do not. We do not have any expectations too, we just express our anger or hate or joy or peace without having a prefixed notion of some stipulations or reciprocation. Then why is there a disparity in how we view Love which is also just an emotion?

This is the result of how modern so called developed society has redefined and shaped this simple emotion making it complex and mangled. 

Love is always unconditional. The moment we connect to this wonderful emotion from our heart and not from the mind which has numerous definitions set to explain this emotion, we will understand love. Love will be the same for a family member or a person we just interact with for work etc. Yes we may feel the emotion more intensely for a few or for the one we are very closely bonded to but at the core it will be the same. The moment an emotion that is supposed to be in the heart moves to the mind it ceases to be an emotion. It is no longer an emotion but a word just like any other which we have been taught and defined. This is the part where all the expectations, stipulations and conditions waltz in creating a chaos and confusion that is beyond comprehension.

The moment expectation exists in anything that you love or in any relationship it ceases to be love. Even if it is a teeny weeny expectation of missing or the need to see or have that person around you. Then it is no longer an emotion in its pure and natural state. One does not need approval to love, we seek that approval for we have expectations and look for reciprocation.

Look at nature, go deep in to the forest on your own stay there for a few days (please use your prudence, if you have never tried this then go stay at a lodge or hotel at a nature reserve) everything in nature expresses unconditional love and that is why we feel so good and energized. That is Love, you feel it, you sense it unconditionally. You connect with your inner self, your soul.

When we connect to love at this level, it transforms the way you look at life, the way you look at your relationships and so on. For now you expect nothing. You can give love to anyone even when they may not reciprocate or may be they actually hate you. The best part is it does not matter anymore as for you now it is purely an emotion in its purest form. 

I started trying to connect with this emotion in the true form years back. The results have been spellbinding. Today I connect with total strangers and they speak to me as if they know me from years. Just yesterday I was waiting for Aanil to remove his bike from the parking area of a super market and an auto rickshaw  driver who I have never ever met before bobed his head out and asked me how I was doing. We started talking and we discussed the weather and so on. This is not the first time I have experienced this. It happens to me everyday since the day I connected to the core of this emotion. People don't understand why they start talking or pour out everything to me but deep down their soul senses the undiluted emotion of love and the comfort it brings with it. 

So if you wish to experience love then don't think from the mind that has different definitions for the same emotion. 

Search within, dive deep inside and start by loving yourself first, understanding the emotion as it is undiluted and pure. Once you have done that just let it radiate from within you and it will be felt by all around. Many may wonder why you behave in a certain manner or question your intentions or why would you do so much for people you are not bound by blood or relation but they feel that because they are trying to understand what you do from the definitions they have about the emotion and not the emotion itself.

Reach within & let it go.........

At some point in our lives we all need to  Let it go............

Today I was wondering what topic should I write on and suddenly came across this wonderful song by some divine intervention. Immediately I had a topic to write on. Moreover it is something that relates to quite a few people around me who I am blessed to have the opportunity to work with to get over their fears. 

I am attaching the you tube link of the song by the singer Ms. Anna Mathew that lead me to write this post - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdVwNkwlTTk

We all hold on to our fears. We try to forgive the person or forget the cause of our fears but  the fear remains within. If anyone tells you he has no fear then he is either very spiritually developed or is lying. Fear is natural nothing to be ashamed of or depressed about.

I myself use to have the fear of heights. Would get dizzy and feel as if I am falling down. Well then I worked on it. Reached deep within and released what was causing this. In 2015 I jumped off a plane (sky diving) from 13000 feet descending at about 200 + kms an hour. Yes the same person who would get dizzy from the 1st floor.

Similarly different fears can manifest from totally different or contrasting situations. Some have fears of height, some have fears of betrayal, some have fears of claustrophobia, some have fears of anything outside their daily routine or comfort zone like cooking or running etc and lots lots more. Most of us fear nudity and you know the best part is that we do not fear it because someone will see us but because somewhere inside we are not happy with abode within which our soul rests. We fear that people will mock us and so on. 

So how do we know what is the cause or how do we release all this and let it go????

Well sometimes we are aware of the situations that are causing this and sometimes we just don't have a clue. As the spiritual realm does not work in a set pattern but varies on the basis of numerous factors and aspects. 

All our ailments are also the result or manifestation of these fears. 

First thing we need to do is stop looking back or in the past. Accept everything that we have been through. Thank the person or situations for the wonderful moments. Finally sit and release all this.

Sounds easy but am sure you are wondering how to go about it.

Well take a paper and pen sit and write down about anything, person or situation that is troubling you or you feel is troubling you or has had an impact on you. Now that we have it written down, sit to meditate. Close your eyes breathe deep from your belly. Now take your mind back to that situation or to that person. Remember and see everything that existed between you both or that transpired in that situation or incident. Count the good moments from them, the ones you would be happy with or even cherish. Now express gratitude for them. Finally after expressing gratitude release the fears or the situation or person.

                              Let it go....... 

Once you let go you will feel lighter within. If not repeat the same in your meditation for a few more days. Often while we are working on releasing a certain incident, situation or person more such things that are disturbing us within begin to surface. Work on them too. Slowly all the issues will begin to release and you will feel better. Your ailments if any will begin to heal. You will be ready to move ahead and work on your Now, without looking back at your Past, which will result in shaping your Future.
