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!
The other day I heard a woman remark, ‘What is the use of putting makeup on? No one is going to see me.’ When you feel depressed, the last thing on your mind is re-evaluating the way you look. You can’t be bothered to get out of bed, let alone shower, style your hair, and dress in the way you would if you were going to an evening ball. However, I am going to motivate you to do just that.
We grow up being told by our elders that we need great will power to break the chains of harmful habits. But will power has an enemy that defeats it in every battle fought- visualisation.
When we lose a loved one, we feel the helplessness and heart-wrenching tugs of grief. We are suddenly left alone. For years, the person at our side, a parent, grandparent, sibling, friend, suddenly cease to exist. The void left in one's life is too wide to stitch. We become a shadow of our former self.… Continue reading SENDING LOVE VIBRATIONS TO LOST LOVED ONES
Our minds are swept away on the wave of materialism. We put our first thoughts of the day in what we can gain. We have no choice in this matter because we are conditioned to think and act with earthly minds. As children, we were less orientated to the physical world, we viewed it as… Continue reading Astral Plane
What we see and hear now is most harrowing and almost impossible to eradicate from the mind. Fear is a thought created out of fearful images, ideas, woeful frets, and dark predictions. Morbid words on the blackboard of our life that flows behind the eyes remain to be seen when you wake and in the… Continue reading I shall not be fearful
This year has proved what I have professed since I lost my dear wife in 1992: we can't see what lurks around the corner. Life can change at the drop of a hat. Nothing is permanent. It is wise to adopt that mentality. In India, so say the yogis, people expect disappointment and are not… Continue reading 2021
Fantasising is like dreaming while you are awake. It is independent of the cold, harsh world of reality. Fantasising is woven into our genetic infrastructures. A child’s mind is alive with fantasy. A boy thoroughly believes his toy train is real, journeying through signals, tunnels, and in and out of railway stations. A girl… Continue reading Fantasise – and why not?
