Ready, Set, Go — Intuition

October 3, 2014 2 comments

 “Take ten minutes – no pauses! – to write about anything, unfiltered and unedited.  You can then publish the post as-is, or edit a bit first – your call”

I ntuition – where does it suddenly spring from?  I think that that magical moment springs up when we are working really hard on a problem… we eat, drink, sleep, dream about it.  Then when we are really tired and take a step back.. the pieces of the puzzle fall into place like magic and we have the Eureka moment!

Archimedes was sitting in his bathtub and just having fun when he noted that the water that was displaced was equal to his mass and he discovered buoyancy.  He was ecstatic and ran out into the street shouting “Eureka, Eureka”.

Kekule was working to solve the structure of the benzene molecule.  One day, sitting at the fireplace, he fell asleep, and he saw a serpent coiled up with its tail in its mouth.  And, the mystery that was giving him sleepless nights was solved in a moment.

So the first thing that we need to do is to have that burning desire for the truth and persevere hard.  And when we are burnt out, we need to step back and rest or have fun.   And in these moments of fun –like a blessing from the heavens, intuition will open the doors to the mysteries that we are trying to resolve!

Verbal Confirmation

October 2, 2014 Leave a comment

To be, to have, to think, to move – which of these verbs is the one you feel most connected to? Or is there another verb that characterizes you better?

More than all the other verbs I would place ‘To be’ on the top of my list.  The quality of being present of being aware and living in the moment makes life wonderful.  This is an innate quality that we all have as children but somehow we tend  to neglect as we grow up.

A child is a bundle of energy jumping from task to task with effortless ease.  Even after hours of play they do not want to stop.  The reason is they are lost in the present moment and fully enjoy whatever they do.   Children play like there is no tomorrow.

Who  does not love an innocent child?  They have no qualms about the future.  They are always honest and say what is on their mind.  They also do not build walls of discrimination based on colour, caste or creed.  Their love is unconditional.

Have you seen a child cry one moment and burst into laughter the very next moment?  They do not brood over trivial quarrels or misunderstandings.  They are able to forgive and forget.  This is one important lesson that we can learn from children.

Children are known to laugh a great deal more than adults.  Cartoons, comic books, jokes and mimicking are the best part of childhood. This keeps them intrinsically motivated and it also inspires and changes the mood of all around them.

Children do not bring any preconceived notions or prejudices.  So they are always full of wonder and curiosity.   As adults we have to learn to unlearn.  Our false notions and egoistic beliefs stand in the way of our quest for truth.

I would like to be myself and be present in the moment like a child .  I would like to fill my moments  with enthusiasm , love and positive energy and share this love and energy with the world around me.

Truth Serum

October 1, 2014 Leave a comment

You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum.  Who would you give it to
(with the person’s consent, of course) – and what questions would you ask?

Always say the truth they said
‘I swear’  was my anchor
But can truth be extracted through fear
Or administering a serum?

Will you tell the truth
If a lie could save a life?
Or tell your kid that Santa is a farce
And ruin his Christmas dreams?

There are no gags, no chains
All an illusion of the mind
Bondage is only ignorance
The truth will set you free

Like a free bird
Let us shed our inhibitions and fears
And rise like a phoenix from the ashes
Every time we fall

The truth is not a diktat
A decree etched in stone
Listen to the sweet song
Of your inner voice
