Suppose you suffer from a chronic condition, such as asthma, arthritis, emphysema, etc. In that case, you will be all too aware of the daily slog of putting up with your symptom. From the moment you get up, your enemy is ready to pounce. Some days are worse than others. There is no relent. Even if you have a good day, the foe is waiting to punish you for enjoying a pain-free day. This constant fight against symptoms dictates the kind of day you will have. We have our morning drug ritual involving an asthma pump, swallowing various pills, and attending to our wounds. We visit the hospital and undergo uncomfortable examinations and tests. We hear our consult informing us that our condition has deteriorated, we need more drugs or surgical procedures.
The yogis believe a soul mate is a friend from a past life. Both your souls have surpassed the body shell in death and met again in this new incarnation. The great Indian Saint, Parmahansa Yogananda, met several soulmates (past life acquaintances) in his lifetime. The illumed yogi found himself attracted to a person and knew a particular relationship would transpire. Occasionally, the guru remembered a friend and their association in a previous life.
When at the height of my career, enjoying excellent health, great friends, colleagues, family, etc., why would I want to stop the merry-go-round and deliberate on what my life might be like twenty, thirty years in the future? During a recent radio interview, I was asked, during my heyday, did I ever stand back and appraise the success I was having and think about how lucky I was. At the time, I was too busy writing more songs and thinking about the next hit to stop and contemplate my present situation. Now, many years later, I look back and think, wow! What a fantastic time that was. That was my moment, my golden period in life when I had all my success. What I’d give to repeat that success!
I watch negative news and think about what is really important. I contemplate unfair parallels in life, and that keep things in perspective for me. We have a TV interviewer earning multimillion dollars for a TV company. Her guests live in a multimillion-dollar mansion, with multimillion-dollar deals with Spotify and Netflix, complaining about distasteful remarks made to them and how living in the spotlight gives them mental trauma. At the same time, the show they are on goes out to seventy countries around the world.
The Reservoir of latent Intelligence Did you know there exists a reservoir of latent intelligence (God’s light) thriving on the fringes of the universe? You and I were created out of pure essence. The second before our creation, we were non-existent, and then, boom …we lived. Leonardo De Vinci, Albert Einstein, Vincent Van Goth, Wolfgang… Continue reading The Reservoir of latent Intelligence
Did you know there exists a reservoir of latent intelligence (God’s light) thriving on the fringes of the universe? You and I were created out of pure essence. The second before our creation, we were non-existent, and then, boom …we lived. Leonardo De Vinci, Albert Einstein, Vincent Van Goth, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, plucked their beautiful ideas for inventions from this inexhaustible untouched energy source.
