Fire Your Inspiration: Extra-Ordinary Things

Happy New Year, my dear friends!!

This year, I’m starting a new series of posts that is all about kindling our inspiration and keeping the fires of creativity and determination blazing in our hearts.

Any creative work including writing is all about inspiration. Our stories, our characters, our magical worlds touch our hearts and inspire us so much that we find no rest until we pen them down.

But there are times when inspiration is solely lacking from our lives, when the daily struggles of the “real” world bog us down and keep us tied for days and weeks together. One of the things that really helped me get out of this and get inspired again was watching inspirational videos. So in the “Get inspired” Posts, I’m going to share all the video clips and techniques that really touched my heart and pulled me up from the quagmires of banality.

Here’s one such video about Ordinary People Doing Extra-ordinary things.

Think your goals and dreams are almost impossible because of life-situations? Take a look at this video and think again…

At the start this year, I swear to myself I’ll not rest till I achieve my dreams just like these “ordinary” people did…

What about you?

Relax, Meditate, Rejuvenate

WHY MEDITATE?

Life today is full of stress and tension in all aspects – professional, personal and social. Be it work in the software industry, a medical hospital or university, there’s more and more competition and demands for perfection in stressful situations. And life at home is no less demanding.

How can one face all of this with confidence and, more importantly, a calm disposition that would get results?

By regulating the mind, increasing our capacity to focus and bringing a balance to our emotions and thoughts.

The Buddha was asked, “What have you gained from Meditation?”

“Nothing,” he replied. “However, let me tell you what I lost: anger, anxiety, stress, depression, insecurity, fear of old age and death.”

WHAT IS MEDITATION?

Meditation is continually thinking about one object at a time. All other thoughts and ideas that divert us are ignored, while the mind is trained to bring the focus gently back to the object of meditation.

Now what happens when this is practiced every day?

Heartfulness Meditation also teaches its practitioners another very effective technique of mental cleaning. Through this cleaning process, one is able to remove all negative and weaker tendencies, stress, anxiety and anger. Combined with a simple and very effective meditation that reinforces the positive aspects of a person, and the cleaning that removes all the negative aspects, it becomes very easy to remain peaceful, balanced and stress-free in all situations.

And a balanced/ calm person  has better clarity of thought in stressful situations, makes the right decisions and hence is more effective.

As many of you know, I practice Heartfulness Meditation and have found this to be incredibly helpful in my life. This meditation has brought so many positive changes and has helped me deal with tough life-situations that would have pulled me down otherwise.

World Peace Through Individual Peace

Dear Friends,

September 21st is the UN Peace Day. This year, a massive global effort is taking place all over the world where thousands of people from all walks of life are joining hearts and meditating to foster world peace through inner peace at the individual level.

Peace, one of the most important things in life, is very much lacking in this world. Most of us despair at the state of the world today thinking that there is nothing we can do to improve it.

BUT WE CAN!

We are part of this world, part of one family.

Like each drop together makes the immense ocean, every one of us is part of this human race and make it what it is. If majority of us have love and peace in our hearts, then the state of the world changes too.

At the simplest level, take the family for example: When I’m angry, my daughter becomes restless and cranky. When my husband is tensed about something in his office and comes home with that anxiety filling his heart, automatically all of us feel that tension and become stressed too.

Everything that is in our hearts touches and influences the hearts we are connected to. 

It all starts with the small drop of the ocean, our individual hearts. Amidst all the tensions, conflicts and stresses in our lives, if we’re able to be peaceful and full of love, then it influences the people closest to us – our family and friends.

Our family life becomes peaceful and full of love.

Their hearts are touched and they in turn touch other hearts in the neighborhood and work place. It’s like like a ripple in a pond. It starts in one tiny heart and spreads all over.

How does meditation help in establishing peace?

Following is a beautiful excerpt from Shri Kamlesh D Patel, the spiritual guide of Heartfulness meditation taught to everyone around the world free of charge:

Often people ask out of curiosity, “Why do you meditate?”
I may answer, “To regulate the mind.”
“Why do you need to regulate the mind?”
“To attain a state of peace.”
“But what will you do with a regulated mind, with the stillness and calmness that exists within you when you meditate?”

This is a wise and stimulating line of inquiry.

What can we do with that meditative experience that helps us to rise above fickle tempers and ascend the pedestal of a steady and unruffled peace?

A lot is possible.

When peace prevails within us, and our hearts are serene and content, can we fight with one another? When we are in a calm state and we interact with family and community members, co-workers and strangers, are we not more considerate of their worries, their troubles and also kinder in our response? 

Shri Kamlesh Patel, De.mys.ti.fy.ing Meditation

So this year, join hands … No, join the thousands of hearts around the world. Meditate together with us and help in taking the first step towards a world of peace and love.
