A Day to Life Post- 94!

Hello everyone, I just realised that it’s been a month since I posted my last blog. I must say that I didn’t realise that it’s been so long, days are flying super fast. I was worked up with many things, but the one thing that has affected me the most is someone’s behaviour towards me. Once again I gave my ex the opportunity to take me for granted and play with my emotions, I dont understand why I keep doing that to myself. I also dont understand how can someone behave so bad especially with a person who was once very close to you. If he really loved me like he used to say 3 years back, then he wouldn’t have hurt me so many times. What he doesn’t understand is that in this whole situation, he is only gaining bad karma, because honey, what goes around, comes around. You need to understand that. It’s sad that he doesnt.
I believe in one thing, karma is the sweetest revenge!

Recently I realised a big human revolution in me, a big change in myself. In Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism, every person has 10 worlds in them, right from anger, hell, animality, hunger, humanity, rapture, learning, realisation, boddhisatva and buddhahood.. And when we chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, we can tap on our buddhahood. So, recently I realised that the life state of anger and hunger has vanished from my life. I dont feel angry at all no matter what the opposite person does, no matter how bad the other person is towards me. For e.g my ex, inspite of his behaviour towards me I dont feel angry. I have now started sympathising on the opposite person’s life state. I feel that there’s no point on getting angry because they are in one of the lower state of life. All I feel is sympathy on their life. Also, I am not hungry for many things in life, I am content with what I have. Yes, I want to achieve many things in life, but nothing excites me anymore. I am not hungry, yes I want few things in life but I am not greedy. There’s a thin line between hunger and greed, the day you realise that, I think one will start seeing the world in a different way.

I have become centred in life too. Since you all know that I go for yoga classes, not to become a teacher but just for workouts. In April my present instructor was on a 3 week leave and in place of her there was another lady instructor who has been practising yoga for over 25 years. I know, that’s a really long time. Before every yoga class, she and myself would end up talking alot and she shared alot of meditation techniques. She used to tell us to pay attention to our body in each and every asana. And I started doing that, also I started practising at home on the days when I didn’t have my class. It helped me to get closer to myself, get closer to the inner me. And also centre myself, which is a very good thing. Now, yoga has become a part of my life like chanting.

Last week, it hit me that I dont like the city life anymore. I like my space, the quietness, calmness and peace around me. I have also been missing my trip to Goa which I went with my ex last year. I had a wonderful time. If he would have respected me what I deserved this time, I was thinking of going there once with him. But I dont think it’s meant to be.

Have an amazing week everyone and a wonderful weekend!

A Day to Life Post- 93! 

Lately, I have been feeling a bit lonely all over again.. I miss being in the woods, I miss my trip spent at the most beautiful place with the most amazing person.. I miss talking a lot, I miss finding myself, I miss the laughter, I miss the happiness. I miss it.. I miss each and everything about it.. I wish I had never come back.. I wish the trip had never got over.. But sadly it did.

Today again I’m sharing a poem, something that I feel.

Whenever the clouds of sadness came over,
When tears filled up my eyelids,
When the scars of the wounds didnt heal,
When I could see no light..
When my lonely heart had no one beside,
And when the shadow of the sorrow waved in..
I told my heart,
Why do you cry ?
It happens with everyone.
So, why do you cry ?
Don’t give up hope,
Because there’s always a light at the end of a dark tunnel..
So, why do you cry ?
Why do you cry ?

Have an amazing weekday ! And belated Happy 4th of July everyone!

A Day to Life Post- 92!

July is already here, cant believe 6 months of 2015 have already passed. There’s just a small poem that is running in my head and thought of sharing it with you all.. It’s just something I feel everyday..

Sometimes I am happy sometimes I weep,
But a new day breaks after a dark night’s sleep.
What you & I sow is what we shall reap,
The finale is with the earthly creep.
It doesn’t matter how hard life can get,
What matters is I will win in the end.
Because that’s a promise I made to myself.

If you love something, love it completely,
Cherish it.
But most importantly, show it.
Because something that is there one day,
It might not be the next.
Never take that for granted.
So, say what you need to say,
Then say a little more,
Say too much,
Show too much,
And love too much.
Because that’s a promise I made to myself.

Wishing everyone an amazing week and a great weekend well in advance. :)

Happy Birthday to Me!! 

Finally I celebrated my birthday last night, June 18th with few of my friends. I brought in my birthday with my family by cutting 2 cakes at home on June 17th midnight. It was a quite one this time, we went to a new place where they have their own brewing beers. The best part being the non stop rains since 2 days. Yes, it has been pouring like cats and dogs in Mumbai since 18th early morning and hasn’t stopped yet. So, it was very sweet of my friends to actually come and celebrate my birthday with me inspite of the rains. 

Well, just sharing a picture of mine with you all. And I’m hoping that this birthday brings me all the happiness and the luck that I need in life.

We all know that June 21 has been declared as the International Day of Yoga in Decemeber 2014. And I have been practicing artistic yoga for about 1 and a half year now, called as Bharat Thakur’s Artistic Yoga. 

What is artistic yoga ? Artistic Yoga is an innovative, dynamic and powerful system of Yoga that affects the body like no other form of exercise. It combines ancient yogic techniques (asanas, pranayam, bandhas, kriyas & mudras), with modern cardiovascular-training and partner-stretches that works on the Individual at every level – the physical level, where flexibility, strength and endurance are the primary goal, to the mental and spiritual levels where awareness of the body, alertness and meditation bring about a complete transformation.

During the weekend, I received a what’s app message from my instructor saying that if I could make a short video on my phone about how artistic yoga has helped me? Which will go on their YouTube channel as part of international yoga celebrations. And I without any thought said yes. So, yeah now that video is up on YouTube and you all can see me talk about how artistic yoga has helped me in my life. Here’s the link : https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=eZqO7CmirtI 

Hope you all enjoy this 40 seconds video. Thank you in advance for watching it. 

Have an amazing week everyone !

We all deserve happiness, we all deserve the best in life. So yes, I know for sure that I will receive my share of happiness soon. Just recently I learnt that my ex has already moved on, he’s already seeing someone else. And I sit here and write about him so often. Life can’t be so cruel to me, because I did no wrong to anyone. I know for sure that my share of happiness is just around the corner.

I haven’t given up on love, because love is something that I believe in a lot. You can love anyone, even your self. My practise has thought me to never give up, which I believe in a lot. I now don’t get affected with lot of things in life like I used to earlier , and that’s all thanks to my practise. Lately I am putting in a lot of my time on my niece who is 8 days old.  I make it a point to spend as much time as possible with her and meet her almost everyday. Children are such a blessing. They make you forget all the stress and problems in your life. Just looking at their faces, hearing to the noises that they make are more than enough to zone out from the world. I love her so much already and have become possessive too. Lol. I wonder how will I be with my kids if I have ever have. 

It’s my birthday in 5 days , and I have no clue what I’m going to do. I might decide something over the weekend.. 

Have a great weekend everyone ! 

A Day to Life Post- 89! 

On June 5th, a little angel came into our lives.. She walked on her tiny feet, and filled our family with joy. My brother and his wife welcomed a little princess called Shaira, which means a princess and a poetess, making me an aunt. She’s the most adorable person I have ever met. Such a pure soul, such an innocent soul. I’m in love with her already. She looks like my her grand mom, i.e. my mom. Her cheeks are pink, like marshmallow. I have no idea where my day goes because I go to the hospital in the morning and then again in the evening. I have never fallen in love with someone so soon, but she is just out of the world. Well, right now I can’t share any of her pictures till atleast 40 days. But promise to share some pictures soon. 

At the same time I miss my 1 and a half month long vacation. Where it was just me.. I wish I could turn back the time a little, I wish I could have spend more time with you. You made me understand how to become strong. 

Well, at the moment I’m so happy and excited to finally know that an angel has walked into our lives. God Bless You Shaira. Your Aunt loves you a lot ! 

Have an amazing weekend everyone !
