Life is a red wine that you don’t throw out, you love the taste of it. Much as wine tends to develop and improve in the same way life often does. No one was able to comprehend the true meaning of life. But, maybe that is the way of life. It doesn’t want you to realise that. At the age of 35, a person who has the desire to live 100 years dies in a road accident. But, a person who has no interest in living his or her life ends up living for 100 years. That’s life. It’s unpredictable. It can give you a glimpse into one day of heaven and hell. Your thoughts in your life are true angel and devil. No real angels and devils are there looking at you. Ever wondered, why are you born in this era, and not in hitler’s time? Hey, who knows? There’s a chance you could have been there too. Nobody has or can prove that the incarnation is real or not.
In all legendary books it is written; from bhagvad gita to bible. Before living a human life, you live a thousand other lives. But, is there any evidence? No, it’s not there. There’s a possibility you might be born in your neighbourhood in your next life and may not recognise your own kids and grandkids. All of this stuff is beyond your control. Your emotions are what you can control. Digesting it can be a hard fact for some people. But, your emotions can be controlled. It’s you who let your anger dominate you. You abuse your friends, spouse, kids and then an excuse comes up later, “I’m sorry I was angry.” To hell with it. You were angry. That’s something you felt. You have no right to take it out on someone else. Anger is biggest reason maximum of relationships fail. Control comes within. Then, if you can’t control your emotions, how do you expect to achieve everything you want? Why do all the monks feel so peaceful? They have learned their ability to control emotions. The average could be anything. But the end result is identical. Your emotions is your greatest enemy. You let the feeling of love overpower you, and that is the only reason why you end up trusting everyone so easily, even though your trust has already been broken by many people. Emotions are the very foundation of your life.
Just imagine this with me; “You’re born into a family where everyone is an artist. You’re living in a city full of artists. All you’ve seen around you after opening your eyes is the art. Won’t you make it a part of yourself? You’re going to. Similarly, you start developing emotions looking at people around you since your childhood. Based on what you see, you tend to incorporate your feelings. If love is portrayed by your parents, neighbours, then you will end up being a person who will always be overpowered by love. It’s like you start subconsciously watering some emotions from childhood.
There’s always room for things to learn. The same goes for controlling your emotions as well. You know why monks meditate? When you are depressed, why are you asked to meditate? Meditation, helps you channel the breath. While meditating, you will still have thousands of thoughts going through your head, but at that moment you will focus so much on your breath that you will tend to ignore those thoughts.
Do it in the 3 steps: 1. Sit in a comfortable position, Breathe normally and observe your breathing. 2. If you think of a dog, tell your mind it’s not a dog. I don’t know what it is? This will improve your ability to observe things and will increase your focus. 3. Don’t open your eyes easily. Sit there for as long as you can. After, few days a time will come when you will start to feel some sensations around your nose while breathing which you’ll be able to feel. This will help you stay more calm, focused.
If it won’t help you out, try it again and again. More of it coming soon. Stay tuned. Lot’s of love.
