Take flight

You were born with wings. Why prefer to crawl through life? ~Rumi

Human lives were always dependent on each other and with every other species. We were interconnected in ways which were symbiotic and supporting each other. Especially with other beings, we evolved together. We were the species which brought meaning and purpose to a lot of life and able to articulate the aspirations and dependencies better. We were the only species which knew the truth and the absolute creation as a whole. We discovered new lands, invented things to make our lives better, and we were ever curious. Our curiosity has led to everything we use in our modern lives. We are perhaps one of the very few species which was able to take a broader perspective on life and evolution. Something is happening to us in the evolutionary journey as we grow our dependence on very fewer species, and our curiosity gets limited to information creation and access. We have become too dependant on financial based sustenance and success based on wealth creation; we are missing our capabilities which are within.We are getting used to our limitations rather than questioning them. What we are truly capable is what we have to rediscover from within ourselves.

Only when we know that we carry wings, can we spread them

Only when we spread the wings, can we fly!

Human potential is truly unlimited. The depth of human thought or strength of human will, the courage of the heart or the power of survival, the fight of the ailing body or the grit of the connected mind, the vastness of intelligence or the potential of human determination, the finesse of the healing touch or the beauty of compassion – everything is an incomparable gift in collective to our human evolution. Yet, we have or beginning to forget our true nature and become addicts to convenience. We know our strength through human evolution, but we have to be careful of not losing it. We have fought through generations to become what we are; we cannot crawl in our existence now. To look beyond the maze of mental barriers and physical limits, we have to move up to a terrace. To look beyond our weak ties of communities and small nuances of everyday life we have to look through a window of an airplane. To look beyond geographical boundaries and embrace the oneness of the planet we have to be in space. To look beyond what we can and to embrace our true nature we just have to close our eyes and look within. Only by rediscovering our true nature can know our wings and unfold them. Only when we soar we can see the bigger picture. When we do, the world becomes one and gets smaller, and we begin to become insignificant.

Love & your self.

This is a subtle truth.
Whatever you love, you are. ~ Rumi

There is a very old adage. “You are what you eat”, But Rumi takes us to something which is much more deeper and dearer to who you are in your very own being. We are all attracted to whatever we experience and witness because internally we want them. When we smell a flower, taste and enjoy a food we like, or just witness the morning dew on the grass – every single act we do, every word we speak reflects who we are. We get attracted to like-minded souls, people who can speak our language of the heart and soul or relationships which appreciate who we are for what we are. If there is anything which comes our way which does not resonate with, we instantly repel it – either in the mind, heart or soul. Whatever we might repel, is sometimes attractive to someone else. Everything which has been manifested is dear to someone or the other. Every being and thing has its purpose, meaning, love, attraction, and reason. Can it be that whatever manifests in our own lives is simply a reflection of what we are inside of us? How does that what we dearly love and appreciate something or someone, that exact thing or person with those qualities comes across in our lives? Our heart and soul and our deepest desires or wishes are much more connected to the universe than we can imagine or believe in. We indeed are a collective of souls who manifest the evolution of the world.

What you deeply want from within gets its form somewhere in this universe and on yourself.

Attraction assumes that you merely attract it from what is already created. But, when we look deeper we can see that we are the ones who create what we deeply love. Moreover, we are what we love. Everything that is dear to us is what makes us and the world around us. We start to become what we love the most. If we love the qualities of a living being or an animal or a thing, we start to exhibit those unconsciously. We are not merely mimicking or reflecting those, but truly transforming ourselves to embrace them. This is what defines the character of every individual. Each one of us are unique beings – simply because we all have a different and unique collection of things we love dearly. Each of those shows up in us in a different part of us. We are continuously shaped by our choices and preferences of what we love. If you truly believe and trust in love and kindness, you start to exude it almost immediately. This is also true in the case of anger or hate. Not only our characteristics change, our bodies continuously change physically. Our bodies have to adapt to what our internal beings are becoming. The minute we are conscious of this, we will start loving things which we want to express and become.
