What is your lesson of the day?


2

This thread was inspired by Ravi and Anu. I thought, we could start this little thing where:

 

We reflect back over the past 24 hours, before going to bed, and share one learning from our day here.

It can be a lesson,  a realisation, a discovery or a random contemplative thought, of your own. It's all about us here:)

I'll go first and share as a reply. I'll try to update it everyday. I think it could help us all grow quite a bit spiritually.

Please share yours too. It can be anything:)

Here's mine:

Forgiveness shouldn't just be a virtue, it should be a religion! 

We are all a lil' broken within and we all make mistakes, we should practice forgiveness all day everyday towards ourselves and each other!

I will share my biggest life lesson 😛

As Humans, we always need something to hold on to. I realised it when I did not follow any faith and had rather put Hinduism under "review" I read our books and Upanishads and understood what it was all about before starting to follow it again.

But for the time that I was a religion-less person, I had nothing to hold on to when I felt sad. I had become lonely. And then I started finding that support in other people, which is never healthy. Emotionally depending on another human is a very unhealthy choice that I learned shortly afterwards.

And it's been bliss since then, as I believed in him because I wanted to and not because I was born in this faith. If you are in a relationship with the divine, your honeymoon period never ends. You don't feel the need of depending on anyone because the love you get from him is enough. Sometimes human tendencies creep in but it leaves just as quickly.

And I feel that everyone has access to this love in abundance. He can be melted with nothing else but love. And he is the only one who can love you that way with absolutely no conditions . And once you feel it, you'll never probably feel alone ever again. Not for long durations of time anyway!. Gradually, you learn to love like him and there is nothing more heavenly that loving people without conditions.

Thank you.for this amazing question komal, love you ❤️

My Realisation of 26th May 2022:

"The real wisdom lies in knowing when to act and when to let things unfold. Usually if life presents something to us and it touches our heart, then acting is beneficial."

Don't start dancing in public places, no matter how good the song. It's embarrassing for your family members🤣

I realised how intensely my mind is conditioned to Sunk Cost Fallacy! 

Im reflecting on solution that is: Let Go. It's okay. 

Everything is how it should be right now 😌

Empty vessels make much noise. Sometimes silence is the best language and when we speak less, we are less likely to hurt others and be hurt too:)

Dont forget the call which Swami ji has given for our Dharma, even for a minute.
Got inspired by some fellow devotees, and more paths are emerging to take action & do something.

Mother Divine is kind!

There is no love bigger and more fulfilling than the divine Love. His love is greater than all. There is no going back after experiencing it once. You realise that every other relationship we create in this world is transactional, even if someone is deeply in love with their partner, the relationship survives because they need each other to fulfill their emotional, physical and other needs. If one stops doing it the other will grow out of it in no time. Every relationship we create in material world is as temporary as this world except that of  Guru and disciple. Most relationships are just an arrangement of co-dependency (not in a bad way) and understanding this gives rise to detachment.

This morning I didn't spend time watching youtube videos on stock market which I have been doing regularly past few months. I realized how peaceful and joyful I felt. I didn't try to watch something on my phone during my breakfast and walk, just tried to breathe and be in gratitude.

 Never trust a family member when it comes to grammar and vocabulary.

Reflection for 28-May

Believe in yourself. Stay confident.

Don't stress too much about serving your Guru's cause. It will happen automatically.  Intent has been created. It will happen with his grace.
