Re-blog: Satisfied?

We eat until we aren’t hungry any more. Similarly, we drink until we are not thirsty any more.

But sadly, many among us don’t follow this same rule when it comes to desiring about worldly materialism. As per the current rule of: the more I get under my belt, the more pumped up I should be to get the remain ones in my hands, which is something truly absurd.

Satisfying inner desires is good but at the sake of ruining personal sanity. I really hate such individuals for whom every new shiny gadget of technological wonderment is a must or who just can’t get their hands full of what they already got.

On this very first day of 2019, I read a nice set of thoughts about satisfaction by Kate.

Read it out below:

aroused

Ever wonder why we are so dissatisfied?
Unhappy with our lot?
Closely watch what others have got?
Our relationships lacking somewhat?

Not quite sure if we are successful?
Mind and body not so zestful?
The only offender is our own deluded mind!
Restless, wanting – check and see what you find?

We invent our own unrealistic fantasies,
Obsessed with self-concern.
Seldom do we stop, look and learn.
Our habit is to project what our delusions expect.

I should look-like, be-like; have this or that.
“Why does she wear that hat?”
“He shouldn’t speak that way.”
Why does contentment stray?

Our own fictitious fables we want to see.
Never pausing to let things just be …
Have you ever tried to go with the flow?
Stop trying to direct your own show!

Everything becomes our own melodrama
And we are centre stage unaware of karma.
Self-grasping the only cause.
Let go…

Re-Blog: We Are So Fortunate!

Do you really need what the world is longing for?

Are you worthy enough to possess what many can only dream about?

It is good to ask such questions with our own selves from time to time. There are countless souls in this very world without the basic necessities of life, for whom every new day is like a grueling marathon with never-ending obstacles on its path.

I do feel highly blessed for not being one of them and for this, I say do thanks to THE ALMIGHTY ALLAH every day for providing me with not only what I didn’t asked for but also with what I honestly believe ain’t eligible for.

A gigantic blessings comparison I read today on Calm Kate’s blog, which struck my heart. You should read it too:

aroused

I have food in the fridge, clothes to wear and a sheltered safe place to live …
   so I am richer than 75% of our world

I have money in the bank and some in my purse with spare change around
   that puts me among the top 8% of the wealthy

I woke up this morning more healthy than sick …
   I am more blessed than the millions who will not survive this week

I have never experienced the horrors of war, the degradation of imprisonment, the agony of torture or the pangs of real starvation …
so I am well ahead of 500 million people in our world

I can pursue spiritual practice of my own choice without fear of arrest, torture or death; those that harass are ignorant …
   so I’m more blessed than three billion others!

I can…

Re-blog: Rescue Remedies

Speaking about being dragging along on rough surfaces of negativity since this morning, I received another helping hand from Kate Blake through this small but lovely piece of rescue remedies.

Use them frequently for your heart, mind and soul’s peacefulness 🙂

aroused

Go for a mooch, more of a meander than a walk … stop look listen

Climb a tree, the world looks different and troubles seem much further away

Pick something, wash it under the tap and eat it raw – parsley is my favourite!

Make your favourite treat with all the embellishments – mint slice, scones n jam

Or make some bread, all that kneading and working is therapeutic

Give someone a bunch of flowers – a neighbour, a stranger, your grocer

Look at photos of old friends, good holidays – have a moment down memory lane

Plant a tree or a shrub – giving back to the environment is healthy

Listen by being still, call it pray or meditation or just connect with the earth

Eat a chocolate frog and offer one to the next person you meet

Buy a friend a coffee or leave one to be paid…
