I am writing from Hyderabad, India. I come here to consult once a month.
A lady walked into my office in Jubilee Hills. She complained of radiating pains in her neck, migraine and a feeling of despair.
After feeling the radial artery in her wrist, doing Nadi Pariksha, I made notes and began my discussion with her. This was going to be a breakthrough in her life.
She was in a relationship for over 15 years and was waiting for her parents to give consent to marry the man of her life.
Her father had passed on. She said he was a very private person who never spent enough time with the family and did what he felt right. And her mother was hurt deeply and agitated due to her husband’s emotional absence in her life.
My client was also deeply impacted by her father’s emotional absence in her life and chose to rebel within. She began projecting herself as a “I know what I want” and “Leave me alone” person.
Children who do not receive enough love and care from their parents often rebel their own nature and become anti-socialising.
Her actions were deliberate and intentional even if her action brought only feelings of hurt to her. She wasn’t on any medication.
She’d laugh at all the troubles and she hadn’t an idea about when she cried last. So, I continued speaking about her actions, habits, attitudes and her personality. She agreed in totality.
Her partner was in a way a reflection of her father who gave a hearing to whenever she wanted a sounding board, but, he was never really there for her. He was unto himself. She was now at a point where her mother wanted her to break her 15 year relationship and her partner was okay with ending it here.
She was unknowingly searching herself. She was so engrossed in living a life of reaction that finally, there was no one to react with, disagree with or to fight with.
The practice of cutting ties is an excellent approach to life, to someone like my client. No attachments, no hang ups, live and love life fully. But, it’s not done until you do the practice.
A life of no attachments, no hang ups can either take you towards self importance or towards liberation through awareness. It depends on which path you choose.
Being aware means to pay total attention to what’s happening in the mind, your thoughts, feelings and emotions so that you can convert each and every thought, feeling and emotion into one of love and joy.
There is a big difference between giving importance to yourself and being aware. Notice the difference?
When you release your baggage from the past with the practice, you embrace change, dynamism. You complain less and explore ways to live more, to make a difference to life itself.
This way, anyone who walks into your life, your interactive space feels uplifted and realises that life can be more beautiful.
Here’s the first step to the practice.
Think, feel, visualise or imagine that you are sitting in the centre of a golden circle. The circle itself is on the ground.
Now, imagine, think, visualise or feel another golden circle in front of the circle you’re sitting in. Both these circles are touching each other and don’t overlap. It’s like the number 8.
Can you? If you find it difficult, try drawing the number 8 with your finger on your thigh. Just that draw the upper circle clockwise and the lower one anti-clockwise and you have the number 8.
Try it now.
Here’s what you must do. Whenever you’re speaking with anyone, listening to or even thinking of anyone, practice drawing this number 8. The effect of this practice keeps your mind alert and your awareness high.
Do it and you’ll realise how conflicts at home reduce to nothing and how you no longer get affected by your relationships.
This is only the beginning. The way to freedom is a journey. Are you willing to be on the speedboat to freedom? Then come.
