May all be guided by the omnipotent Guru within !

Happy Guru Purnima to All.
Purnima means Full Moon. Today is a day dedicated to offer respect to 'Gurus' and 'Guides'. Sharing something which should be taught to all, before formal education is imparted. If understood and imbibed, the learning is beyond all knowing . May all seek the divine intrinsically, the omnipotent Guru within !
Indian traditions instantly relate to Guru with the 'Shloka' ..
गुरुर्ब्रह्मा गुरुर्विष्णुः गुरुर्देवो महेश्‍वरः । 
गुरु साक्षात्‌ परब्रह्म तस्मै श्रीगुरुवे नमः ॥
Guru is truly godly. The general interpretation is that Guru is akin to the three highest divine energies and we offer salutation to the Guru.
However; this 'Shloka' has a much deeper meaning. It is the a true perspective for self-awakening of all sentient beings…
गुरुर्ब्रह्मा -Brahma (Creative powers of the existence) is your Guru
गुरुर्विष्णुः –Vishnu (Sustaining powers of the existence ) is your Guru
गुरुर्देवो महेश्‍वरः – Shiva (Supreme Godly energy of emergence and reformation) is you Guru.
गुरु साक्षात्‌ परब्रह्म – The supreme powers, concept and laws which are beyond everything is your guru.
तस्मै श्रीगुरुवे नम- Salutations to that guru empowered by ‘Shri’- The supreme powerful energy responsible for the evolution, sustenance and dissolution of all.
The 'Shloka' is in fact an appeal to all individuals to seek intrinsic guidance which originates from the ‘Supreme’ knowing of the world – which is everyone’s Guru. Rest all are divine gateways to ‘That’.
May the whole human race be awakened to 'Seek the Guru Within'.

Simple Suggestions for Quitting Addictions ( a Healthy Living )


Please realize, the treatments create a conducive environment, it is ultimately you who will resolve the issue. YOU ARE A POWERFUL SOUL. The mind may not be able to realize so, but YOU ARE.. Try these simple things - it will at least clear your mind to find a solution.

1. Change the words used : Words used in speaking or writing are a reflection of million thoughts in the mind, before they are communicated. Often, at times of stress they are a reflection of deeper layers of subconscious, which is the actual reason of the issue.
Eliminate negative words and sentences in regular use.
Use words like - issue for problem
- 'Could have been better' for bad
- 'It can be done another way' for 'It cannot be done'

2. Change of focus - If focus is on Quitting alcohol, it is still on alcohol and the quitting may be omitted. FOCUS ON A BALANCED, HEALTHY LIFE. Avoid getting word alcohol to your mind as often as you can. If you focus on healthy life, you will find ways to achieve it. Stop thinking you have to quite alcohol, think you have to live a healthy life.

3. Forgive yourself. Forget what you have been. Everyday is anew you and you can create awesomeness for yourself. Get up every morning and say thank you and forgive yourself first and start your day. Make a resolve to end whatever you asked forgiveness for. in a few days you will yourself start feeling the change.

4. Stop looking for solutions and things that have to be managed for improving. you cannot manage time, activities or routine. Only thing you can manage it yourself. The treatments will just create an environment for you to manage yourself, you can create that on your own, once you realize you have it in you.

5. Put it up on your bathroom mirror, ceiling of bed and behind the front door

" Thank You ... I am so grateful for this perpetual happiness.
I am an empowered soul that leads a very healthy and balanced life.
Everyday in Every Way - I am getting 'Better and Better'.
Everything is Awesome.
Thank You It is done. Thank You It is Done. Thank You, It is done."
Read it when you can or just glance at it whenever you pass by ( in any state :D ) ..just look at it whenever you can.

All this may seem trivial - following this is a long term change and will surely help in some way or other.

Awareness of 'MIND' PERCEIVES the 'BRAIN' ... and everything else ! EXPAND IT ...

Does the Brain Make the Mind? or Does the Mind make the Brain ?
This is like answering the question "What came first; the chicken or the egg ?" In the two choices - there are infinite possibilities! 

It is the Mind that perceives the Brain !

The mind is capable of limitless awareness, supported by the organ called brain.

Mind is faster than the speed of light. Think of a star 100 light years away. If you have, congratulations on reaching a place in a moment, which the light will take 100 years to reach.

Now think of an electron; now a whole Milky Way galaxy. The awareness can take the smallest to the largest space.

Space and time are only few dimensions of reality we perceive. More we let the mind grow; more will be discovered.

Realizing the difference between brain and mind might seem very insignificant; however, it plays a very important role is the expansion of awareness.  

Awareness is like the light source which helps us see all around. Light a torch in the dark, a small patch is visible, light a bulb, a bigger area is visible, let the sun come up, the vision is limited by the sensory perception. Like the expansion of light source helps one see more and more, increase in awareness helps in consciousness enhancement and self-realization of the potential all have.

The choice of exploring unlimited potential of mind is certainly a progressive one.  Choosing to increasing awareness by removing the limits of logical mind is certainly a boost to mind exploration. There is always a possibility beyond the logical limit. We may call this faith, intuition, imagination …name does not matter; accepting it does.  We live in a logical world and the importance of logical mind cannot be undermined. It is with logic that we comprehend the infinite possibilities of imagination. However, it is the imagination and believing in a possibility beyond logic that will make the mind grow.

All ancient wisdom civilizations lay emphasis on the mind, rather than the organ ‘Brain’. It is simply because the access to 'mind change' which can influence the working of brain, is available to everyone without even realizing where the sensory inputs are getting stored a processed. In the modern day efforts, medical science tries to map the working of brain to the mind; yet is far from explaining phenomenon like dreams, lucid dreaming, sudden enhancement of awareness in deep meditation and hypnosis to name a few. Anything which cannot be explained is called a psychic phenomenon or ESP (Extra sensory Perception). In routine life, our aim is to increase or awareness and harnesses this potential for making everything ‘better and better’. It is certainly possible. Some of the names given to the unlimited potential of mind are id, unconscious mind, sub-conscious mind and super conscious mind. Nomenclature of reality and consciousness will not alter the nature of existence. The fiber of existence is the experiencing bliss in every moment. It may seem absurd, but this is the ultimate outcome of what each one desires! Choose to train the mind so, it will be yours!

The complex nature of reality will remain so and a possibility beyond logic will always be there.  The potential of mind is limitless; it will always surface in some form or other. Mere realization of the reality of mind existing everywhere, even outside the brain, expands the awareness !
