I always find it interesting the various strategies people use to achieve success at whatever they’re doing. When the Team GB athlete was interviewed about his performance in the men’s 110 metres hurdles final at the Olympics (in which he came fourth), he said because he hadn’t expected to get to the final, he treated the semi-final as his […]

I believe all problems that humanity has ever dreamed up or will ever dream up have already been resolved.   All needs have already been met.  All desires have already been fulfilled.  To receive them in the here and now,  it’s important to thank the One/God for what has already been done.  Here’s one example, which […]

I am a male person. I was in unique state of mind at the dead of night when I felt in an ecstasy that my body is becoming His body including mind and intellect. Soon after I wrote in my notebook: “I am dying now and in morning I shall born as a new person.” […]

“Yoga” in the Sanskrit language means to get connected to the Self or to God. In the Shrimad Bhagwad Gita (SBG), Lord Krishna has enumerated various kinds of yoga techniques, which are related to control of the senses, almsgiving, breathe control; sacrifices of wealth, penance, self-study, wisdom et cetera. A common mind gets confused as […]

I met my retired boss and asked him about his routine. Oh! I feel very sleepy and soon after breakfast I go to sleep. In the morning I worship and then meditate. The whole day I think of past events, otherwise what to do? I asked him whether in meditation he was able to get […]

This is the question I was asking God during the depression phase of my Bipolar disorder (BP). How God answered and what His reply was, will become clear from the following: This disease is characterized by an elevated mood, increased energy (mania) and for a few days sleepless nights. If not treated it may lead […]

A few days ago when I noticed a fat pimple on my face, I was so tempted to squeeze it but I decided to leave it alone.  I figured it will go away of its own accord and I gave it no further thought.  Today, I noticed the pimple has gone.  A few months ago, I […]

It was almost midnight and I was awake when I heard T…..R…..R…..R…..BHAMM like a bomb explosion in my head and then all was calm and quiet. I had written four lines in my notebook before this event: 1. My body is becoming His, gradually. 2. I am dying; in the morning I shall be born […]

Fortunately we taste the world’s duality first in the form of vices and virtues, pains and pleasures, births and deaths, sadness and happiness, and these are common to all of us. All our efforts are directed towards having an ever pleasing mood and a deathless body. This wish is fulfilled when we become innocent like […]

Before I went to bed, I noticed my stomach was so bloated I looked several months pregnant and I felt really uncomfortable. I decided to do something about it so I thought: “God, this is your body, un-bloat it now!” As I lay in bed, I could feel my stomach slowly reducing in size in […]

Our main concern is to maintain good health and keep our mind full of positive thoughts. It is usually said that Yogasanas practiced at a young age help in maintaining good health in old age, but most of us miss it due to lack of time and interest. Our ancestors paid good attention towards the […]

I stopped off at the local supermarket for a few items my mother wanted. At first the bags felt OK to carry but then they got heavier. Then I thought to myself, why am I struggling when I can ask for help? “Thank you for carrying the bags for me!” The moment I had the […]

Since my retirement in November 2006 almost five years have passed. For the last 2-3 years I have been sitting in the mornings in the office of the Pensioner’s Welfare Association, where I have no work and hardly any one comes. In between for about a year I also served in the publication department of […]
