Mind it, Mom!

What is more important than Maths, Physics, Chemistry, or Biology, Geography, History or Languages? What’s more important than all the subjects that you attach so much importance to, and often engage expensive tutors for? The answer is, developing the ability in your kids to assimilate these subjects, and to extract from them, the aspects that help create lives of happiness and significance.

Speaking For Money

The fact that one could be paid to speak revealed itself to me only when I was introduced to the Professional Speakers Association of India (PSAI). Sure, I was earning through my words even before that, but differently. As I began to understand the world of professional speaking, I realized that there are 5 ways to speak for money. And here they are: S2S – Speak To Sell – This is what I was doing …

What does it mean to Forgive and How does one do it?

It might be the most obvious thing once you think about it. To for-give is based in ‘giving’. As long as the mind remains in a ‘getting’ state, forgiveness cannot arise. Therefore, a simple definition of forgiveness is to reach a state in which one has nothing to get/gain from another person or situation. And the person/situation is automatically forgiven. Since the desire to ‘get’ is anchored in the person who expects to receive (and …

The 5 Categories of Gurus

Recently, during a break at the Reiki channeling session I was conducting, a very interesting discussion about Gurus cropped up. The trigger was the question a participant raised, “How can we know whom to follow? There seem to be so many people offering self-improvement stuff.” After a lot of views had been expressed, bringing in everyone from Dalai Lama to Ramdev Baba to Eckhart Tolle and Jon Kabat-Zinn, I found myself (obviously guided by universal …

Getting Unstuck

It can happen to any of us, anywhere, anytime. It could happen at work. It could happen in bed. It could even happen while writing an article like this one. What? We could get stuck. Stuck for ideas on ways forward. Or worse, stuck in ways of thinking, working, doing and being, which are driven by habits that are hardened so firmly that we fail to even recognize that these habits of stuckness were instilled …

“I’ve got a job to do”

There are a few statements that disturb me. One of them is “I’ve got a job to do”. Hollywood has made this line extremely glamorous. But as a consciousness/wellness guide, I am concerned where such aggrandized declarations are taking society.

Can machines replace human beings?

It is always quite fascinating, the way people embrace technology as the ultimate panacea and yardstick for human development. A lot of people also fear that technology will replace them someday… and that fear is not completely unfounded. A small thing like a phone-app has replaced the Secretary. At several airports check-in staff are no longer needed even for baggage handling. And the possibilities with robotics are well captured by Hollywood, becoming realities year after …

What is Consciousness?

Consciousness is the manifestation of energy that allows the conscious object to be aware of the causality of its environment. Being in higher consciousness is being in higher awareness, more sensitive to subtler levels of changes of cause and effect. It also implies being more adaptable to the perceived changes from the point of view of the environment one is impacting due to one’s own direct or indirect involvement. Having studied several definitions of this …
