Insight Thoughts

A warm welcome to all the readers and very thankful to support ,so that I can come up with more writing.Today,on Sunday no agenda so far,just reading and absorbing time.In the previous post,I wrote to explore story for acceptance,a direct realisation or result of “As it is”,haven’t found a big story but very willing to dig some excitement.

A short story,I have is that from last two days,experiencing on/off situation in myself but say ,it stayed balanced.At present,I don’t have work related to my area of interest.In this tough time of COVID outbreak,I must say that by grace of shri Krishna & I pray for everyone that we come out of this, with great learning and smile on our faces.I am not going to work(sales consultant part-time),but still getting paid,everything is going well.

In the lock-down time,cleared certification of Data Analysis,SQL online,along with joined a local charity as well on volunteer level as Research and Policy Analyst.The only hindrance is that I feel that the organisation is very slow in pace & I am keen,so energy mismatch. I was getting agitated in the sense,because last year I joined another volunteer work and was very near to start working with information department in the local hospital,but to due to COVID,it didn’t happen.

Last night,I just said to myself,I don’t know what to do,I just want to leave the guidance on Shri Krishna.I am always ready to act but not in confusing & agitating state.In the morning,just picked me the book ,did drawing and in love again with “As it is”.The beautiful lines are:

“Conditions arise and cease,that’s their nature,so you can take it easy.If you just accept conditions as they are and bear them in whatever form they take in the moment,then they pass-and you recognise they are no longer present.”

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

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”?

But Why?

Without “As it is “,what I will be doing differently?

I am going to explain just like in maths we do,to prove a theorem,start with theorem assumption and then break down into simple chunks to prove .So far,not taking this philosophy into account,I felt that I am always divided into two states happy or sorrowful state.It took me years to come to this conclusion & every day practice that I am complete and above this. It is feeling like being a “Lotus” flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty.I know that life will keep testing me and that’s why I will keep sharing my experiences.

I am thinking of continue this by a story telling in next post.Please share your story,if you are experiencing this state in your life.Please like,comment or subscribe if you like this blog.Thank you

Devotion Versus Knowledge:What is the Difference?

What is difference between devotion to God and the knowledge?

Answer: Devotion is like a radiating gem and Knowledge is a Lamp.Both of them light the darkness but lamp always need oil to keep it going but Devotion doesn’t need anything to support it.I learned this from watching my favourite TV Series-Ramayana.I don’t know what’s happening to me,I am everyday feeling attraction towards to know Ramayana story more.I have started reading the book,which have been lying in the corner for 4 years and must say cherishing it.

This lockdown time definitely has its own challenges,not easy to adapt a new way of living,but I surely somewhere feels like that this time was somewhere hidden,or was under my thinking carpet.

I just wish May Lord bless everyone’s consciousness to go the level to bring simplicity,empathy and lots more qualities that we are seeking.

Drama Review “Bhaage Re Man Season 1”

After a very long time,I enjoyed so much watching a TV series “Bhaage Re Mann” on Netflix. In the below media,I am posting a beautiful song by Vibha Saraf for the drama.At the very end of this post,I have shared a small trailer as well

What is this TV series about?

It is a family drama and is suitable to watch with family.The story plot begins with an extremely busy family in preparation of youngest daughter marriage and yet they don’t want spare any moment to refresh their memories related to not just daughter but overall how happily life has been so far.

In the middle of hustle bustle environment,a guest came about whom no body knows except Anjali(mother) & Ashok(father) and Raghav (next door neighbour) and in no time it is found that this guest is actually Aunt(Padmini) as she is sister of Ashok. All the young adults of family get excited when they learned peculiar things about such a full of life their Aunt MiniB(nick name) and can’t get wait to get her know more.

Padmini left her home 20 years ago in the middle of her own wedding time,she was confused,not ready at all, in addition to this she sought help from bridegroom Raghav(her best friend as well) but nothing was worked out satisfactorily.Now after 20 years,coming back to home,how she weaves the carpet to rest her feet on,proved a must watch story.

Overall I would conclude that each episode is given the reasonable pace using elements of humour,family concerns,relations,romance etc. moves the story interestingly to hold the audience.

“Come Out,come away”

When I sit in the morning outside on the deck of my boat,before the majestic purple of the mountains crowned with the morning light,I know that I am eternal that I am ananda-rupam.

My true form is not that of flesh and blood,but of joy.In the world where we habitually live,the self is so predominant that everything in it is of our own making and we starve because we have to feed upon ourselves. To know the truth is to become true;there is no other way.When we live the life of self,it is not possible for us to realize truth.

“Come out,come away.” This is the urgent cry we have in our soul-the cry in the blood of the chick,living in its shell.

These lines are from the book “Letters to Friend” by Rabindranath Tagore from page no 71 when he was in Srinagar Kashmir(October 1915).I don’t have any words or story to take a dig ,just a prevailing silence and willing to share with the readers.

Slow pace but i am jealous with writer

 

One thing is absolutely clear that this book had been written in very much free time,heavily garlanded with poetry that makes me very jealous of writer simply because I love to feel time.The sluggish pace of story revealed that fragility of bachelor’s club members in keeping the vow of celibacy life long.

The frequent poetry and in between all Rasik Dada(big brother) ,non member of club emerged as the carrier to move story making fun via taking advantage of his age factor,romantic sense and this all got supported by poetry & nature.Although I was feeling that it is getting bit stretchy,but turned this to make rounds of tea/coffee.I would do little more leaking of story, how two new characters admission to Kumar Sabha Nirmala & Abalakanta put pressure on other members via their devotion towards taken social cause task.

In the last 30 pages,story picked the pace welcomed by Aksh again with his all time round joking habit and no doubt rasik dada’s timely comedy interruptions played key role to open doors for all the characters(friends and family) come together under one roof to witness different emotional stage guilty,realisation,happiness.

The last line for Kumar Sabha members ” Don’t expect you will be spared later” gave the last dose of laughter.

Chirakumar Sabha: The Bachelor’s Club: A Comedy in Five Acts

This time, I am attaching a short video clip from Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai(old version),as there is no media clip related to it ,but this book reminds of this family comedy I used to watch a lot.

Review of Chirakumar Sabha#The Bachelor’s Club#

This book is definitely full of comic sense and on the top of that the work of poetry is an added gem.

Now the question is how it proves?

The setting of story starts from the conversation of Aksh(husband) and Puro(wife) gives headstart in terms how Aksh previous member of a bachelor’s group vowed to never think about women ended up in marriage.

Aksh ‘s character did the very good job of filling the conversation with four lines of poetry every time when other characters are confused or in slight anger especially his wife. I would agree,A merrier person that even the married men will envy,these lines in book completely suits him.

I couldn’t find any media attachment in English. The dialogues between Aksh and prospective bride grooms were not just hilarious but reveals the full hippocratic nature which ended by another funny statement of Aksh that “as soon I slapped their back their tails began to wiggle”.The story had been to the point so far and a family’s way of doing comic sense reminds me time when brothers,sisters and other relatives all sit together,pull each other legs from memories or from a family situation.

Reading this book reminds me of the time when I was watching TV series of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai,a family comedy,in which different characters or different situations fueled more excitement and laughter.I don’t have relevant media but this trailer of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai(second version) will give you idea the crazy stuff I am enjoying.

Buy/Borrow:I am posting the amazon affiliate link as well or it is available to borrow from your local library,then I must recommend.
