EMOTIONS - A deck of Cards

The water that makes up so much of our bodies is like ocean water. The salt crystals in this water vibrate at ever-changing frequencies. Our hearts are the emotional centers of our bodies, and they put out frequencies that are 10 times the power of the frequencies of our brains.

When we are happy, we vibrate at a higher frequency than when we are angry or sad. Our emotions change the chemical composition of the water in our systems. That's why happy tears taste different than tears of sadness.

Experiencing physical, emotional and mental stillness harmonizes the vibrational output of the body, heart and mind and we become stronger.

The life-force within you is trying flush out all of the stuff which is blocking you from being consciously aware of it. Our problem is, that as the stuff is pushed to the surface of our consciousness, we fear it and we try to push it back down and hold onto it.

This causes an enormous amount of fear and we do not know what is happening to us. The secret is to let go of our inner defenses and let the life-force within do its job without resistance. Just like removing the clouds to allow the sunlight in.

It is our addictions which hold our defenses in place. The feeling you get when you crave a cigarette for example is not because you are addicted to tobacco, it is a feeling of fear and you push it down by having another cigarette. We have many addictions, such as tobacco, eating, talking, sex, exercise, cleaning, shopping and working.

You do not get cancer from cigarette smoking, you get it from the enormous amount of life force you lose trying to hold your defenses in place.
Lose the fear and the defense against it, and you will lose the habit or addiction automatically.

Emotions have the tendency to make you a King or Queen/ & as well it turns you to a no one in seconds. With all the faith, knowledge, realization , awakening, efforts put in & circumstances gone through, I have myself gone through a many, & have been working on myself handling & tackling the so called emotions from a long time,since I was a kid. Then later in my youth, & when I was married till present when I have different set of emotions entangling me. It's not a easy job taking in and letting out Emotions and Here is my take on Emotions & things that I have come across & myself worked upon them for better. Every day has been a new day, & every night has been a new night, For there was not the same evening, and not the same noon, that I came across. It's like a weather that brought storm, & subsided in fractions of time. What I have personally learned from them is that It's me, and no one else, who has to handle these set of emotions that come over & see them as I want too, admire them or reject them with a no no). Happier of the Worst of times, It takes not much long that one can surrender & adjust to it's symptoms.

"As we explore the extraordinary interplay of energies between the many aspects of our personality -- our needs, unconscious reactions, repressed emotions, aspirations and fears -- with the functioning of our physical system and its capacity to maintain itself, we soon realise how very wise the body is. With its intricately detailed systems and operations it portrays infinite intelligence and compassion, constantly giving us the means to understand ourselves further, to confront issues we are not looking at, and to go beyond that which is holding us back."

Our personality likes to be in control. It likes to know how things are and what’s going to happen. Underlying this desire for stability and predictability is a deep fear that the world is a dangerous place. The personality fears it will not survive without continually being on guard.

The truth is: we cannot control what happens in life. And under the natural law of attraction, we tend to attract to us what we focus on. Explore substituting trust for fear and the world becomes a gentler, happier place.

You, and you alone, decide what something means to you. Yet this is a decision that most people make based upon past feelings, experiences, understandings, or future fears. None of this has anything to do with what is going on right here, right now.

When you walk the spiritual path, its like traveling up the side of a mountain. You may fall back one step, only to find you have the strength to walk forward three. But don’t fear, you are always moving in the general direction, which is up.

In reality, we are always gravitating towards God whether we realise this or not.

Stay with yourself, bring yourself to the present moment, maybe by just listening to your breath, maybe by looking at something in the room. Then quietly, softly, give yourself permission to make a new choice if you wish. Embrace a new truth.

"Feel your emotions"

"The key is to not resist or rebel against emotions or to try to get around them by devising all sorts of tricks; but to accept them directly, as they are."

"Instead of resisting any emotion, the best way to dispel it is to enter it fully, embrace it and see through your resistance."

"We have to become more conscious of our feeling-world. By learning to identify the ‘emotional baggage’ and manage our feeling-world reactions, we can view life based on current information instead of being held captive by our past."

"Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge."

FOOD between the Legs

Dating back to months back when, I was visiting to the Hospital to see a family member of mine. One of the relatives had asked me to bring "Dosa" (South Indian Food - Delicacy "is a fermented crepe or pancake made from rice batter and black lentils") from the road side local restaurant (dhaba), on my way to the Hospital. Despite no outside food was allowed from home/outside the Hospital Premises, I agreed (could not have said a No to them). I was cursing my self while proceeding towards the Restaurant to order the same, in a agitative state of my mind, about (how will I carry the same inside the Hospital premises)? The Attendant who had asked me to bring it was diabetic and hungry as well , & hence had no other option left, then to call me and ask me to get the same as soon as possible. Else if the attendant could have shelled out some money could have got it from the Hospital Canteen itself. Anyways, the interesting thing was that I was not carrying any bag to dump the food in it, and hide it completely, so that I was not being questioned what was there in the bag?

I must tell you his South Indian Food is really tempting, and what best if it just comes in 30-40 bugs a plate. First I had asked the guy for Uttapam (a dosa-like dish made by cooking ingredients (urad dal'Urad bean is sometimes referred to as "Black gram". It is the main ingredient of the South Indian dishes: Idli and Dosai' & rice) in a batter.), Dosa, if which one of either two was available and he could cook and hand it to us ASAP. Since I was told to get either of it. This guy started making 2 Uttapam, and on my request I asked him to make Dosa, and not Uttapam.

Not very obvious to my surprise though, it took ten minutes to get the thing ready & pay the person that cooked it for us. Anyways further since there was not carry bag or a pocket that could fit in that big piece of item, I had an idea, that was quite hot though.

Have u ever wondered how does it feel, to have fresh hot cooked food between your legs, hanging just between your legs, popping to and fro. It looked like if I was carrying a post-surgery bag, or I may call it a 'Poop bags' or a Male version of Kangaroo hide bag/pouch(under my kurta "a loose shirt falling either just above or somewhere below the knees of the wearer". tied to my pajama's (loose, lightweight trousers fitted with drawstring waistbands) knot tightly as if it was a popper-scooper. I walked as if I was a "Pocket Penguin series" edition. Walk like a Penguin.

Me being Unnoticed at first, despite having a & getting irritated with such gesture(what the hell I just did), It seemed as if everyone was looking at me, though no one was as evidently as I thought. Walked in Hospital as a penguin and as soon as I reached the floor of the patient's room, I took a breath of relief. The bag kept on banging on my testicles & I could feel the warmth of it all this while.
