    This is written when I was in Mumbai. Now in Kerala

    In Life , When you get into trouble ; don’t get nervous , Just close your eyes and listen to your Heart ;
    Because the Heart may be on the left …. But It is always right ……..Somethings just cannot be touched or seen… they must be felt with the Heart…

    Life is not so easy. We learn from our experiences everyday. But it is not enough only learning but put into practice.
    If you want something you’ve never had you have to do something you have never done .

    When I see other grandchildren with their grand parents feel unhappy but feel happy that God has given us opportunities to go for satsang, poojas etc, where we get to learn and also enjoy and see so many people, after seeing whom feel that God has given us the best and blessed us also.
    In 2017 there was Bhagavadha sapthangam and this time I got the opportunity to attend all the seven days without break but only for half day and the pravachan I heard from 11 to 12.30, after that we used to have lunch and come back home. This time the Bhagavathar gave all of us on the last day with akshada a song on Lord Krishna which I am singing everyday and it s a meaningful song.

    The song is Vasudeva Vasudeva Krishna , dukham theerthu rakshinam Vasudeva Krishna and there are many paras.

    He told us the present life how we are living and told many things about today's life which is a reality.
    These quotes are from Google

    Who should be blamed when a leaf falls from a tree?
    Is it the wind that blew it away?
    or
    Is it the tree that let it go?
    or
    Is it the leaf who grew tired holding on?
    Life unfolds a lot of misunderstandings everyday..every moment..
    Its up to us to:
    Solve it.
    or
    Leave it.

    1.Nobody is real in this world except mother…

    2.A poor person has no friends …

    3.People do not like good thoughts…they like good looks..

    4.People respect the money not the person ..

    5.The person u love the most , will hurt you the most..

    When your heart is open to Love…

    Sounds become music…..
    Movements become dance, …….
    Smiles become laughter, ………….
    Thoughts become meditation and life becomes …a celebration
    Make your life a celebration with Love!!

    @iyerviji maami. So well written. Especially your 5 points that you mentioned are so true!!

    My paati used to say 'Panam illatha aal pinam' which literally translated means 'A man without money is a corpse'. Even today its so sad that people don't respect a person or his thoughts. However, money, power and looks command so much respect. Youth itself is so fleeting yet so many people search for fountain of youth and they never want to age. An oldie doesnt get respect even for their age!

    Finally, you will realize who your true well wishers are only in times of despair. And that won't be any of your friends or extended family, but only mom because she is the only person in the entire world who truly cares about you and wont hesitate to tell you the bare truth!!!

    Beautiful Vijima. Very well written. There are so many instances in life where we have been ill-treated, disrespected and humiliated. But when we understand life, we will be so peaceful, that our mind will treat both happiness and difficulties at par.

    Dear Vijiakka,

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts about life and its significance.

    Love is the principle of Paramatma without which the world will cease to exist. All of us originated in love, sustain in love and eventually will leave also because of love of Paramatma.

    Leaves are destined to leave as part of the cycle. Wind, Tree and Leaf are just an instrument performing the actions that are destined. The fruit is destined to fall when it is ripe so that it could become a tree itself. We need to differentiate the conditional love with unconditional love. A mother when she lets go of her child to become independent, she understands that the child should grow in this world with his/her own family and contribute to this world independently.

    There are a few principles that are essential for achieving peace and joy:

    1) Perform all actions skillfully, selflessly and lovingly and without expecting fruits.
    2) Build detachment to learn how to live in this world and not of the world.
    3) Remain calm when one experiences pleasure or pain to achieve equanimity.
    4) Serve the people in need learning giving is the greatest accomplishment in life.
    5) Be in the company of good people
    6) Reduce desire and live in austerity as much as possible.
    7) Possess the wealth with a mind of a Trustee and not get possessed by wealth.
    8) Introspect every day to eliminate bad thoughts and actions.
    9) Love every life and treat them as you would like to be treated.
    10) Express gratitude everyday as life itself is a gift of love.
