The Spiritual Meaning Of Holi (Part 1)

Holika Dahan: Burning The Evil

Bonfire is created on the eve of Holi with an effigy on top of the pyre representing Holika. This spiritually denotes the evil or negativity present within each of us. Every household provides twigs and pieces of wood to prepare the bonfire. This means each of us should offer our unhealthy sanskars, wrong habits, resentment and hurt that we have held on to and unfulfilled desires of the past. Holika Dahan or burning of the pyre at night and people dancing around the bonfire, symbolize that we need to set all our negativities on fire. We can rejoice only after burning them into ashes so that they never come back. It also signifies setting ablaze evils of old world, to begin a new world of purity and virtues.

The simplest way to burn our negative sanskars is Meditation. Meditation is a powerful personal connection with The Supreme Power, Ocean of Purity and Love. When we remember someone, we are in connection with them, that is called Yog. When we are in powerful remembrance of The Supreme, Yog Agni (the fire of remembrance) burns all impurities. Mythologically it celebrates the destruction of the demon King Hiranyakashipu and Holika, and the protection of devotee Prahlaad. So it is a reminder of the power of faith and surrender. When we have unwavering faith, the Supreme Soul protects us from the flames of pain and suffering.

Beautiful Relationships – The Road To Success (Part 3)

4. We all want our relationships to be strong and ever-lasting, but we have never thought of personality transformation as a medium of achieving that. No relationship can be successful and without problems if anger and ego exist inside people. Changing oneself and removing these two negative personality traits at every step brings people together and hearts close. No matter how much love you may share with the other person, but if at times, your behavior is anger or ego filled, the same love shared does not hold any value then. Many a times, people will gift lots of presents to their loved ones and will go for a holiday or a party or have a meal together or celebrate each others’ birthdays and marriage anniversaries. But all these are just temporary and will not give permanent happiness to a relationship, if at other times one partner has got angry for the other coming home late or has become egoistic, when they did not call. Love means complete trust between two people and where there is trust there will never be accusations and counter accusations. What use is a gift if at other times you do not even talk politely and sweetly, without any doubt and suspicion?

5. Lastly, but most importantly, today most relationships are lacking good quality time spent with each other. Professional targets in the lives of men and women both and varying priorities of two people sometimes is keeping people away from each other. Spending time together and discussing problems of each other and even other family members and then looking to resolve them makes relationships beautiful. So, fix times with each other to be together at meal times and evenings. Also keeping a balance between time given to home and office as well as talking to each other throughout the day and being with your family, keeps relationships going and makes them full of happiness.

Your generosity in putting others forward will automatically place you in front.

Contemplation:When you say ‘you first’ instead of ‘I first’ you will be placed forward. For having done the selfless service of putting others forward and encouraging them, you will get plenty of blessings. This will take you forward very quickly.

Application: When there is a conflict with someone, become generous. Instead of expecting the other person to understand you and do according to what you want, listen to what he is saying. When you give a chance in this way you will move forward very quickly.

Beautiful Relationships – The Road To Success (Part 2)

2. Along with creating affirmations for the self, a very important virtue which makes relationships stronger and more beautiful is respect for others. Why is it that nowadays either deep respect in relationships is lacking or even if its present, it is short lived? Why have people become so egoistic and even a small negative circumstance can make all the respect shared between two people to be forgotten. Today, you see two people respecting each other immensely and after a year or two, they don’t see eye to eye. What is it that is not working in relationships? Giving respect to others, others’ personalities, others’ interests, others’ opinions, others’ lifestyles and not only thinking about oneself will make relationships lovely and they will work longer. Remember the one who respects oneself or has good and positive self-respect, is the one who respects others more. A first step to a good relationship is a positive self affirmation every morning – I am special and unique in this world and so is the other. I respect myself and respect the other. I give the other space to be themselves. That is true respect.

3. A beautiful characteristic of each soul in this world is love and relationships for every human being is a medium of give and take of love. Sometimes some people’s love is conditional and based on selfish desires. As long as the desires are fulfilled, they are full of love for the other. The moment the other person is unable to fulfill their desires, they can become revengeful and bitter. This is false love. So, becoming full of true and unconditional love is the key to long-term and positive relationships. This kind of sharing of love will resolve differences with others and keep you united and strongly connected always.

Your generosity will make you free from feelings of negativity.

Contemplation:When you are always generous, you are always a giver. You will not expect anything from anyone. Thus you will always be free from such negativity like jealousy, hatred, inferior feelings etc.

Application: Identify one person for whom you have negative feelings. Now spend a few moments each day giving good wishes to this person. When you become a giver you will automatically find yourself wishing the best for that person and your negativity will fade away.

Beautiful Relationships – The Road To Success (Part 1)

We are all living in a close knit world where relationships are an important medium of life which connects all of us closely. Today, sadly but truly, relationships are no longer as deep and meaningful as they used to be earlier. We are commonly hearing of early divorces and sudden breakups in friendships and so many other types of relationships at the workplace or as loved ones in the family and outside family. Where are we heading? Why are relationships so fragile today? Even if they exist, the happiness that they radiate is less. People are lesser content with each other than before and there is anger, ego, jealousy, possessiveness and insecurity surrounding relationships much more than before. There are also people who do not disclose their relationship problems with others but are silently suffering. Let’s look at a few basic methods to make our relationships stronger and based on the correct foundation of everlasting peace, love and joy.

1. Give a few minutes everyday to filling yourself with peace, love and joy through beautiful affirmations. Reaffirming to yourself regularly about your nature full of peace, love and joy will strengthen that nature further. The more your sanskaras are full of these three qualities, the more your thoughts, words and actions will be full of these qualities. As a result, your relationships will also become a reflection of these qualities. The most important cause of relationships collapsing is inner emptiness and inability to share these qualities with the other person. Expectations are the seed of all problems in all relationships and all expectations are a direct reflection of the qualities of peace, love and joy not being present adequately inside people.

Application: Think of something that is very special in you. Today take the thought of using this speciality of yours for someone’s benefit. Not only will others benefit with this, you will find yourself improving too.

Celebrating The Happiness Of Others

When people are doing better than you, do you feel happy for them – genuinely or superficially or not happy at all - because you are yet to get there? Deep down you want to be happy but does your mind start analyzing what their achievement means to you? When someone is doing very well at work, education, family, personality or in possessions, it doesn’t mean they are better than us. It just means they have achieved more than us at that particular moment. Let's compliment them. Each one receives their fair share according to their karmas of either this or their past births, nothing more and nothing less. Being happy for people’s happiness implies we are happy with ourselves. It also finishes our weaknesses like ego, jealousy or insecurity. If we don’t look at people as competitors, they will co-operate with us. Let’s remind ourselves I am happy for everyone who does well and everyone who is appreciated. People who have achieved more than me motivate me to do well. I congratulate them, I celebrate their achievements, I feel their happiness. This is being big-hearted.

Look within and ask yourself today that when people buy a new car or a new home, do we feel good or jealous? It may bring out our jealous side but feeling happy for people’s happiness indicates our maturity and strength. Giving them credit is the easiest way to defeat our destructive thoughts of jealousy and ego. Take this moment to reflect how you feel and express heartfelt happiness for another person. Re-frame your perspective of life. Be grateful for what you have and genuinely happy for what others achieved. Your mind will open up to everything that is going well in life. You will stop feeling vulnerable about people’s achievements. Instead you honor your self-worth. Co-operating rather than resenting happy people improves your health, your relationships and your career.

The happiness within you changes even hopeless situations into hopeful ones.

Contemplation:There is so much power in being happy that even in the most hopeless situations you can keep yourself peaceful and happy. When you are able to maintain this stage you will find that things change for the better too. Your hope will work to change the situation.

Application: Think of one situation that you are not happy with. Make sure you accept the situation as it is without expecting it to change. This acceptance will give you the faith that things are happening for the best. With this faith even the most hopeless situation will turn positive.

Enjoy And Love Every Moment Of Eating

All of us have three meals a day. They sustain and nourish us to sit, move, speak, smile, and complete tasks. For the ways food serves us, it is important to love and respect what we eat. We often find ourselves grumbling or judging the food on our plate. We reject it unawares with statements like - I’m bored of eating this every morning, This dish is so bland, I wish my mother could cook better. We also worry or feel guilty - I might put on weight, What if my sugar levels increase, This doesn’t taste fresh, hope I won’t fall sick. Once we decide to eat, let’s enjoy the food, not think of its effects. Let's create thoughts of gratitude and love before and while eating. The quality or quantity may not always be perfect. Never mind – we have enjoyed (and will continue to enjoy) thousands of delicious meals. The few imperfections should not change our respect for food.

Food that we eat everyday is nutrition for our body. We choose what is healthy. We can choose what is tasty, but if we say we will be happy when we eat something specific, it means our happiness becomes dependent on our food. Sit back, and visualize yourself happy while you are having your meals and radiating happy energy to your food. We often create an energy of irritation when we eat something which is not tasty for us. Food may not be tasty … but happiness or irritation is our choice. Practice today to not allow your food to influence your mind. Criticizing what you are eating radiates negative energy to the food which then influences your mind. Before every meal today, pause and reaffirm I am happy and calm as I eat my meal. I energize the food with my happiness.

The actions performed with happiness become a means to draw the line of fortune as long as you want.

Contemplation:The more actions are performed with a feeling of happiness, the more they will bring benefit to yourself and others. Thus it becomes a basis for creating your elevated fortune.

Application: Instead of blaming fate when things go wrong, it is good to remember that to create our line of fortune is in our hands. Take the thought to be happy in whatever you do. This practice will enable you to change your situation into a more positive one.

Overcoming Anger – 5 Keys To Success (Part 3)

4. Let Go Of The I Am Right Consciousness – One of the most significant causes of anger filled relationships is the ego that I am right and the other person is wrong. The more the ego, the more the anger. Very often people who are very moody in the family or at the workplace and are always shouting at other people and seeing them as incorrect are the ones who are very egoistic. Also, a very common and negative shade of anger is sarcasm - to comment sarcastically on people’s actions and to always think that what I think and do is the best and only right. On the other hand, the one who sacrifices his or her ego will be very sweet and merciful in interactions, even if the other person has genuinely committed some mistakes. To see others as innocent and not to be over-critical, a very simple practice is to see atleast one specialty in each and every person we meet everyday. This type of positive vision makes us free from anger and even in the most negative of situations we see people positively and not focus on their faults and weaknesses.

5. Remain Stress Free To Become Anger Free –Life is full of many different types of negative situations and twists and turns, which keep us unsettled and stressed at times. Stress is primarily caused by too many whys, whats, whens and hows, which are questions in our minds. The more the mind is full of questions and unsolved problems, the more the mind will react in the form of toxic words and actions. Problems will always exist but our attachment to them and impatience in waiting for them to get solved at the right time and in the right manner leads to anger. Anger in many cases is just a form of bottled up stress, which bursts open from time to time. Meditation and positive thinking as a result of the practice of meditation are some common techniques to resolve stress of the mind. Freedom from anger follows freedom from stress.

Happiness comes when there is self-sovereignity.

Contemplation:Being a self-sovereign enables you to have total control over yourself. If not, when there are negative or difficult situations, there would be sorrow. When you are in control you will not expect situations to change but you will have the courage to change yourself.

Application: When things go wrong, instead of worrying or waiting for things to change, tell yourself that you are a self-sovereign and you can bring about a change in yourself. When you work on yourself and change you can be happy.
