Happy with life?

September 22, 2009

A simple question. Are you happy with your life and where you are at this stage of your life now?

Most people when asked about this question would say “No” and are just living for a “mere existence” wishing your life could be better but not knowing how to improve it.

Maria Duval tells me that major reason for bringing happiness is our mindset, which manifests what we are. Hence, if you want to change your life, the first thing you must do is to change your mind. You must also take action to create momentum

First of all, there is one good way of knowing why you have been attracting what you dislike in your life. Start to look at your own life, like life-style, habits and routine. For example, if you can start a personal exercise regime to tone up yourself so that you feel better.

To be happy, we need to be proactive to change our status of life. Simply waiting down there for changes is hoping for money to drop from the sky while you are sleeping, as it won’t happen!

Yeah, no more wishful thinking without putting in any actions. Read, ask people, get help. Remember the old saying “ God helps those who help themselves”?

Maria Duval adds that taking responsibility is important too as to achieve success in your life, you cannot continue blaming others. If you want to be a winner, you have to agree that it is you who attracted the things to your life.

Let me repeat. It is us who created the thoughts, feelings and made the choices to be where we are today!


Plan person

September 9, 2009

On Labor Day, a blaringly loud sound nearly pierced by eardrum while I was in deep slumber early morning. I jumped up from my cosy bed and stared at the picture hanged at my wall.

It’s already 9am. Time to get ready for the day’s activity. I got up, grab a shower, brush my teeth, and did a short meditation from Maria Duval’s guidebook. Felt so much better and composed after that.

Yes, that’s my routine almost everyday. It really makes some sense to my daily life. I like things to be ticking like clockwork, according to plans. I am a plan person.

Time is such a funny yet profound element in our life. Every passing second, what we are in become history, and we are living into the future. In a blink of an eye, we are approaching Thanksgiving soon.

Time is an illusion to me of what will happen and happened.

The Path to Spirituality

September 7, 2009

What got me into spirituality?

Hmmm… well I didn’t know what was real anymore. Moments kept changing, I as the body kept changing, my thoughts kept changing.

Everything kept changing!!!!

To be honest I object slightly to the term itself. “Spirituality” seems to imply that some kind of spirits are involved, which isn’t necessarily true.

This led me to spirituality. Then Maria Duval started to write to me with those psychic and spiritual letters and books. It got me deeper into this topic. I think this world needs a real awakening!

I’d call myself philosophical, though. I’m in complete awe of this remarkable reality we inhabit. Just looking at certain things, especially pictures of our galaxy or of our earth, can be a fascinating experience for me.

I remember some occassions when I was much younger when I would get some sort of peak experience like “WOW, what the heck is this? All this… stuff. All these feelings and colors, and thoughts!” and just be fascinated by all of it without really thinking very deeply what exactly I was fascinated by.

Recently I’ve taken an interest in Eckart Tolle too. His book on this topic is amazing!

I realized there was only one thing that never changed, yet it wasn’t even a thing. I asked myself how I knew I existed. It wasn’t a thought that told me. It was pure knowing, a feeling. I knew I existed because I was aware. Not aware of something, just aware.

“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

Live life fully

August 13, 2009

Life is a gift of God. It should be lived with complete joy and complete meaning.

The life is only given once. So a person needs to live his life according to his way. Most of the people in this world love to remain in solitude, which in one sense isn’t a good idea.

One should never live a boring life because life is not given twice. It is very precious. You should know the value of your precious life and you shouldn’t waste it by doing nothing.

You must spend your time in some sort of activity which can kill your time. This will help you to spend your boring life with some meanings.

For example, I like to go to forest to trek the rocky trails and observe the flurry of activities from our Mother Nature. To me, that’s the best way to heal myself spiritually.

So, all you have to do is keep yourself busy in some activity and you will notice that your boring life is no more boring. You can decide about what is your aim in life.

Just try to keep yourself busy in getting your goal of life. This will help you to forget your boring life and you will get an aim to fulfill. You don’t need to repeat all those activities you do in your daily life.

Try to give a change to your daily routine and you will notice a great change in your life. And slowly you will start enjoying your life. Listen to music of your choice and kill your time by watching famous movies.

Release your hatred

August 5, 2009

I know what hatred is, and I discovered that if I hate, I am the one who feels bad. And making others to feel bad wouldn’t heal me. The only way out is to forgive in order to heal.

When you forgive and step aside and put some distance from those who hurt you, you may realize that at some point you feel sorry for those who hurt, because they are not happy either for they hate and hurt too.

Forgiveness sets you free from hatred. Unless you enjoy being unhappy, I might advise to forgive. Why not starting to forgive yourself for hurting yourself so much with hatred?

Hope someone who is reading this is able to get the message I am trying to pass to her. Yes, it is tough to hold hatred in you. Release it and be free…

Precious water

August 3, 2009

Water is very precious to us. How convenient it is when we just turn on our taps and clean water gushes out of the tube. Water is our life-giving chemical compound. However, it seems like many people are taking advantage of it by wasting it endlessly in their daily routine.

When you watch the news channels, i am sure you have come across some countries which are suffering long drought. Imagine how life will be like if we don’t have water for one day! These poor souls probably have not seen water for weeks!

I read that when water travels in our body, it brings along lots of chemicals and nutrients with the flow. That is why it is so important to our functioning brain if we are to remain alert and in good concentration. We need water to carry nutrients to our brains so that it’s working well. Hence, you can say water is the primary brain booster!

Maria Duva’s guide to healthy living says that if we want our energy-levels to be consistently high, we need to drink enough water. What is enough? That depends on your own body. But drinking a glass of water, or herbal tea every hour is a good idea!

As a person who is leads an active lifestyle, the first thing that i make sure is that 2 liters of water bottle is fully filled up before I go out!
