Think Over It !!

Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.

My beacon of light !

Being a female by gender of species homo sapiens, I play several roles- a daughter, a sister, a friend, a wife, a mother, a daughter in law , a student top the list. Being all of these simultaneously often leaves me in difficult situations which make me wonder actually 'what really is the meaning of all this?'

Sometimes I feel it is better to be numb to all this and just be lost in the flow of life even if it is all materialistic(something that makes me uncomfortable, not that I am a saint with no wishes, but I do have my limits) ! One thing is obvious to me certainly I am not the one born with this clarity but I am one who wish to have this ! This implies pain to some extent but worth undergoing !

On my way to find myself and my purpose following are the people, resources which have been of help at the various levels. I would be happy if someone else also finds his or her way through one of them.

1.) This is the latest but something which is teaching me the real way to be kinder to myself and gives me explicit method of healing and helping myself and in turn others. This just reinforced my belief that to heal others first heal yourself.
 It is in Hindi but you can find some other videos on youtube in English and some videos of this series with English subtitles.

2.)The great ones whose teachings I can understand and appreciate to some extent-

A.) Swami Vivekananda (

If faith in ourselves had been more extensively taught and practiced, I am sure a very large portion of the evils and miseries that we have would have vanished.
B.) J Krishnamurti(

Among the legends what Hitler and Mussolini were only the primary spokesmen for the attitude of domination and craving for power that are in the heart of almost everyone. Until the source is cleared, there will always be confusion and hate, wars and class antagonisms.

3.) It makes sense to me what Dr. Marshall Rosenberg has to say.

Shouldn't peace, love and harmony be also included in the list of our basic needs and we all should  strive to achieve these? They are a priority on my list and hopefully on yours too :)
