The power of mind by Brahma Kumaris. Dark clouds and their silver linings. Ever experienced a phase in life where nothing goes as planned?
Disappointment looms large, dissatisfaction mounts, and no matter how hard you try to make things work, they just don’t. It is as if you are cursed. Recently, I went through such a phase of despair when both my personal and professional lives went for a toss. Things were so bad that I just wanted to run away, somewhere I couldn’t be found. Dark clouds and their silver linings. For the love of our pets.
Brownie, the cat that ruled our hearts I’m a log.
My mother and sister often struggle to wake me up. But there’s only one power in this world that can make this log rise and shine–a cat’s love. I remember the times Brownie would hop onto my bed and sit beside my chest, purring. For the love of our pets. The more you thank, the happier you get. You talk about ‘six things people can’t stop doing’ and how they reflect inherent themes and patterns.
Could you elaborate on this? Okay, this is an exercise where I say, think of six things you can’t stop doing. These are not compulsions or addictions, but just things you do every day, and not normal things like brushing your teeth. These are things remarkable and individual to you. The more you thank, the happier you get. 'We take different births to find what the soul really yearns for' Scientifically, where does the discipline of PLR stand?
Some people are empirically driven. So if I were to convince them, how would I? A lot of research has been done by people. Some have even dedicated their lives to finding the truth about people’s past-life events. 'We take different births to find what the soul really yearns for' Breathe well for your spirit. When we learn to focus on taking steady breaths throughout the day, we become extremely alert and aware.
We experience a sense of oneness with everything in the universe, and gradually, the sense of ‘I’ dissipates. This may sound vague and unattainable to most of us. Jain suggests a quick exercise to help us understand this experience. “Sit in an upright position in an open space and engage in fast, deep breathing for a couple of minutes. The second you stop, you will feel that every cell in your body is charged. Kundalini, according to yogic scriptures, is a reserve of energy at the base of the spine.
Profound spiritual growth comes with steady breathing. Breathe well for your spirit. Bend your body, heal your mind. It’s promising to know that yoga is an effective therapeutic aid in mental wellbeing.
However, there’s not enough clarity on what specific aspect of yoga improves psychological health. Director of NIMHANS, Dr B N Gangadhar, admits, “Clinically speaking, we don’t know for sure whether it’s the movement or awareness or breathing or specific yoga style that fosters the mental wellbeing.” Yoga practitioners have long maintained that yoga is a holistic practice that helps in physical, mental and spiritual growth. In any case, yoga does not treat body parts in isolation, but rather as chakras or regions. Perhaps, it’s this overall approach that helps fix imbalances in the body, mind and soul. Bend your body, heal your mind. Hues on the pearly sands of Kutch. Not very far from my tent, there was a group of six people clad in kurta-dhotis and red turbans.
Sitting together on a red carpet, they were singing a folk song. Each of them played an indigenous musical instrument and sang in unison. Dancing to their tunes were folk dancers, captivating the onlookers with their moves and their colourful attire. People were clapping, clicking pictures, and applauding the artistes. I had never witnessed such liveliness in one place. Hues on the pearly sands of Kutch. Relationship lessons from Joey, Chandler, and Ross. On the other hand, my other friend who is like Chandler maintains that novelty is not a scale to measure the life expectancy of a relationship.
In fact, he believes that real relationships begin when the novelty is gone. He once told us that a relationship is like a two-way street, where everything you give and take needs to be in equal proportions, whether it is emotions, support, trust, loyalty, or commitment. I see what he means; in the initial months of a relationship, the passion and commitment are quite involuntarily. Relationship lessons from Joey, Chandler, and Ross. Learning to fly. The deadly white winter was fast approaching.
Just a few weeks ago, mama starling had hatched her eggs and given birth to four little hatchlings. Vowing to nurse her frail babies to good health, the mother had scouted the neighbourhood for fat worms and caterpillars all day. When her babies finally looked big and healthy, the excited mother said, “My little darlings, I’ll teach you all to fly very soon!” The little birds looked at each other, startled. Learning to fly. The wonders of silence. Elaborating on the magical nature of silence, Sangoi says, “The mind and body share an intimate connection.
If anything goes awry in the mind, it gets reflected through sensations in the body. The wonders of silence. The abode of a fierce queen. The story begins with the Pandya king Malayadwaja and his wife Kanchanamalai conducting the Putrakameshti Yagna, a sacrifice to appeal to the gods to bless them with a child. Their prayers were soon answered, and from the sacrificial pyre arose a girl child with three breasts. A voice from the heavens declared that the child was an incarnation of Goddess Parvati and that her third breast would disappear the day she meets the man she is meant to marry.
The abode of a fierce queen. What does it mean to be well? We’re often asked the question: “How are you doing today?” While we tend to answer in a positive, even cheerful tone most of the times, the truth might be somewhat complicated. Are we truly well? What does it mean to be well? Not done with you yet. Everyone who knew Lily and Ed were in awe of their relationship. Something about it was endearing, almost enviable. Their life seemed to emerge from the pages of a romantic novel. Perhaps, it was the way they looked at each other, or the way they supported each other when times were tough.
Through the crests and troughs of life, Lily and Ed knew how to keep the spark alive. Whether it was a silly fight or a difference of opinion, they never gave up on their ritual of walking to The Roasted Bean and cooking dinner together every evening. Not done with you yet. In the times of radio. Content is the essence be it a magazine, television or the radio. How has content on the radio evolved? Seetal Iyer: The relevance of content has not changed, be it music or any other kind of quality content. The relevance of music cannot be questioned. It is like any other passion that will stand the test of time.

It’s unusually long to not visit your hometown when you live only a 2-hour plane ride away. Career, relationships, marriage, earning a livelihood took over life itself and I lost track of time. I was like a hamster on a wheel. The saddest part of this was I didn’t create any memories for the future—memories that man goes back to in moments of solitude. I knew I needed to change this in my life and going on a holiday felt like a perfect start. When I left a conventionally secure job to begin a career in writing, Jammu was the first place I went to.
