But how easy or difficult to practice “As it is”.The main question “A big How?”I have so much to tell but from where to start don’t know,that’s why I leave the things on life to shape the story.

“As it is ” is not just instant remedy for the problem but actually it is the way of life,to keep you carry on. The more rigid we are ,more difficult it is .I must say the lock down has proven a boon in the sense,I am more in the questioning/observation mode directing me towards to be more flexible.

A simple example ,I exercised today that when my elder son in hurry opened the microwave door without even seeing his younger brother is just right there,as a result he got hit by door,fortunately it wasn’t that bad.In obvious way,I got angry and at one point I just prayed “Goddess Laxmi”,please Mother help me to understand this scenario .A pause helped to understand “As it is”,very soon I felt, that I am exaggerating,so I stopped,diverted myself and after some time had constructive conversation with my son to build awareness.So,the Rain concept ,follows later which I found from one of the blogger’s comment on the old post,so grateful to him.

I recalled the fact,my elder son is always full of energy,fond of running,sports (Recognition).

So expect that the vibrant energy(Acceptance).

I asked mother please advise me “What is the difference between a constructive angry form and destructive angry form?(Investigation)

There is thin line difference ,constructive angry form leaves you with awareness & solution,it settles down quickly but destructive just destroys like recalling past so much,complaining ,completely stuck,not progressing towards solution. (Nurture)

So,what’s your story,did you feel at some point in your life that you stopped to think “As it is”,would be fun to get more insight.Please like,comment,share or subscribe if you like this blog.Thank you

Insight Thoughts

Now it is story time.A simple story,I have from the tough time of lock down,it is not easy to be home,managing school going children suddenly at home full time,along with husband work from home,in between all this finding time for my growth path like studying ,applying for jobs for career change,at present employed part time.

My 8 year old son,who is fond of having friends to play with him,suddenly he is finding hard to manage it, and as mother I found more harder because with the guilt factor overtaking in me .In my case as Mother unconsciously, I become like need provider all the time,what strikes me that my inability to accept the situation,so that I can make easy for my son to accept it. My relationship with my son started showing weakening signs,I started blaming myself “Why I didn’t make more independent personality?”.All past time acted as catalyst to weaken even more and began that dance of life that you we don’t want to see.

I just stopped & accepted this dance and asked myself in order to standstill & still feel bliss,I need to get above the happier dance as well that will follow later.I took out the “As it is ” gem was buried inside me to let me feel the real dance.“As it is ” straightway brought me to yogic mind state and started showing the path of solution with lushful nature around it.I realised the need to have more understandable conversation with my son putting my all past thoughts,difficulties of present aside and to be part of solution.

What is your story of accepting “As it is”?

The Post Office(A boy’s paradise to be life)

I am starting this blog with an apology for all the readers because they might find this review not capable to capture the level of vibrancy that this young boy Amal holds.

Despite of illness,the boy was full of enthusiasm/energy  talking to different people via room window.His conversations were full of questions & answers so joyfully that actually made other people felt so divine about their work which they considered not much value.The talkative boy whoever he met like curd man,flower-seller,took no time to imagine small small details like how curd yells to sell,how his wife make cow stand in morning must be ful of fun.

I felt the need to watch it as well and this video definitely does full justice to the reading,unfortunately this is not available with English subtitles.

My favourite part of story when he expressed his desire to be like the man whom he met seeking work carrying brass pot and pile of bamboo woods on his head.He clearly was even more excited if he fails to find work because then he can watch that tired man sitting under fig tree,washing his feet in river stream,eating his lunch,it simply implies writer’s message that whatever struggle time of life is there ,it has nothing to do with opportunity you can always create to sing in tune with life.

His ultimate desire to be postman to deliver king’s message of love to houses in different countries,represents the fact, he just wanted to be ambassador of profound life unblocking our limited view towards normal daily small and simple things  of life.

Dhai Aakhar Prem Ka Review(shesh rokkha)

This simple, comedy story written by Rabindranath Tagore is must watch episode of TV series Stories by Rabindranath Tagore.I tried to look for book but can’t find it,even though searched by original name of  Shesh Rokkha of story, but I couldn’t stop myself to post my views when I watched the story on TV.

I liked the slow-pace start of the story in which all poetry lovers gathered in chandrakath’s house ,taking dips in poetry and the way chandrakath’s wife turned around looking slightly miffed offering them rice snacks on lunch time despite of that how lovingly he asked her “What is this”?The fun part starts from the name confusion and how the characters play around,doing poetry for their lovers and in between all that the newly wed Binod Kamal observe in what ways they are different.

This preview of 7 minutes will provide wings to imagination about its beauty.

My favourite part is when kamal had a quick turn as soon as she stepped out of room after serving binod tea ,she saw binod pouring tea in plants,too good.At last when all the confusion got resolved,the end challenge was how to pacify parents genuinely asked to clear all this mess.

I must say when this book was written,it still seems to be very relevant nowadays,especially the characters of women. I can’t find the book but posting the link of classic short stories about women that would generate more idea/excitement of Tagore’s treasure chest of stories.
