Pull of love

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.”~ Rumi

We are taught to be very logical. Everything we know must be justified by a logic. We tend to put a formula to our likings. We want to like and possess things which we can wrap our heads around. If our mind does not understand something, then it must be wrong. The way to decide right and wrong is based on logic. We are taught right and wrong and we are guided by what we are taught and what we know all our lives and wrapped around logic. We add layers on top of this – we either dismiss things which we cannot place logic around and become extremely possessive about things which make perfect sense for us in our heads. We rarely trust our instincts in the first place. Even when we want to go with our feel – which is not from the mind, but from our heart – we are cautious. We question it completely. When our mind gets satisfied with something or a person, we again complicate it by expecting it to go our way. Because fundamentally we placed logic around it, the thing or relationship has to perform. If it does not perform, possessiveness takes over and we get upset. All this happens because we are not letting go from the start.

Dance freely with the song, let the wind take you to the place you belong.

If we remove logic from us, go straight to the soul to follow it constantly, we are guided by the love which pulls us. We no longer are listening to our mind, no longer have attachments or expectations, we are not bound to what we seek, rather we are liberated from the start. If you trust the song, you will dance as long as you want. You are not expecting the next step, but rather enjoying the dance. You do not care what the next step will be or where it will take you. Dance, smile and enjoy that moment. Let the soul take you to where you belong. Completely trust that it will only take you to what you love. Soul knows your love. Go to that thing or person with total trust and full of love. Be just the clay in the hands of the beloved. Let the beloved take care of you, mould you and enjoy that care and process of being made into something you love. That is what you are supposed to be. Do not add the experience of where you came from to where you are going. They are two different places, be open to explore that place which is drawing you. That person who is waiting with the love. Just go and surrender.

We are trained not to trust the other. Nature feeds every soul in this planet and also directs us to the beloved. Just don’t force yourself on something or someone even if the message comes from the heart. Go beyond, let your soul be your guide. That love rests only in the soul. That place where the soul takes you is truly where you belong. Make that your home!

Being grateful

Thankfulness brings you to the place where the beloved lives. ~Rumi

Most of the time we only see the world with our own coloured eyes. We end up seeing what we want and also ignoring what we are not supposed to. We are abundantly gifted inside us – but it is a pity that we seek externally and seem to be lost in gathering things which has got nothing to do with our true self. We always tend to compare ourselves with people around us who have more material possessions than us and hanker to live a similar life. How many times have we compared with the friends around us who are not as gifted as us? people who would be desperate to live our lives even for a day or even a few hours? We forget that we are already gifted both materially and abundantly inside us. The minute we realise and start thanking for the wealth we own, life transforms around us.

Gratitude brings you to a point of being so humble, you value everything you already have.

Being thankful every moment is truly magical. The minute we realise that what we already have is great and we are being thankful, it brings us humility in a big way. It makes us realise the value of what we have – no matter how small or big that is. The minute we value every bit we have, how can we not fall in love or discover love in everything we do? The more we value our possessions, the more we discover the love around us. The minute we value our beloved – be it a person, energy, god or for that matter anything we are attached to – we have arrived that that place where it lives because we are extremely grateful for having it with us. It would help us realise how small we are, how big this world is, how privileged we are to have these possessions, how blessed we are to have a heart to be thankful. Gratitude is the biggest blessing to have, it turns around your world positively the minute you embrace it.
