Happy New year
Happy New year every one. I am not into making new years resolutions though I like making one word resolution for a new year, but I have never done any, I am always go with flow person & incorporate any good thing I like in my day, recently I have started doing guided 10 minutes meditation on weekend along with my floor exercises, now I have added doing rosary two times a day in the morning & night, it re-centers me & makes me happy starting day on a positive note. I am realizing we got so lucky with our India travel, we attented two weddings traveled by train, plane to village & US respectively & stayed safe. Now I am hearing so many covid cases within close family members, luckily all are doing well. recently watched Gary Zukav discussing his old book seat of the soul with Oprah on her Super soul Sunday series. Some of the things he was mentioning was similar questions I struggled with after my stroke, 1. what is the purpose of my life, 2. how do I know what I am doing is right or wrong, both questions I struggled with & found answers on my own which I find always gets validated by these great thinkers, I found these answers by struggling , and fumbling with dark thoughts then finding joy, so want to share so that others don't have to struggle & find it readily. answer to my first question was purpose of life was do the roles you are playing in life with full honesty, it could be mother,wife,sister, daughter, employee, volunteer any role you are playing in life, do it with full honesty,kindness,cheerfulness. second question I struggled with when doing something for our kido & in his younger years when he would fight & resist that he doesn't want to do any new activities like his violin practices, sticking with any sports if he is not yet very good, & I wasn't sure myself whether I am doing right thing or not. I was sure about education but extra curricular activities I wasn't sure. but I realized after struggling & seeing the results now I realized always check your intention whenever you are struggling with some questions, if you have good intentions behind it then stick to it & things will turn out to be just fine & this is what Author Gary Zukav was also mentioning in his book seat of the soul, so I feel good that I was on right path. Anyhow hope you all have healthy, happy & prosperous new Year.
