Meditation, Stress- An Ageless Wonder...

Jiffy ago life exploded inside you. You missed it... 

He just came out on the open street singing within an unsung song, this song is his motive; this song is his life-
“Once upon a time under the sky, behind the trees, untouched by age showing his pampered chest, without caring about roadblocks; leaving it to The God. 

Entangled in little fragrance, sailing with the wind, under the sky, behind the trees, whispering to the Universe, accepting the Life as it is, lives an ageless wonder; that never grew old.

Neither winning or losing, neither wept nor laughed, keep marching on his way ahead, talking to self about the self, severely wounded several times, he stumbled and got up again, and again, and again. 

Untouched by age, untouched by envy, accepting life as it is, accumulating little fragrance from the air, under the sky, behind the cloud, amid trees- ‘there lives an ageless wonder’…

When death becomes meditation, the nectar of life may explode inside you. Meditate, and when this nectar explodes, stay there.

Remember this, this explosion is always here, now. You are living now. You cannot live in your past. You cannot die in your future. Death is here. Life is here.

Stay selfish. Understand “I”. “I” is important. “I” is life. “I” is you. “I” is here. “I” is now- Jiffy ago life exploded inside you. You missed it

Life is beautiful. Stress, worry, difficulties indicates towards a path which leads to Nirvana, total freedom.

Stress, worry disturbs your existence. And these disturbances compel you to overcome it, get rid of it.

Unless something provokes you, unless something disturbs you, you won’t wake up. Provocation is necessary to wake you up.

Your stress, your worry provokes you, disturbs you. Use your stress in a positive way.    

To win over your stress, do not run away from your worry. Do not try to get rid of your stress. When you try to get rid of your stress, either through yoga or through any other method, you get a momentary relief.

Stay awakened. Accept and allow your stress to perform its task. Watch your stress, like a witness, and your stress will merge taking a positive shape. It is like alchemy.

The Universe’s move is unknown, do not interrupt. Do not try to correct Universe’s move you cannot. You do not know anything about your fate.

Stop correcting others fate. You cannot guide others fate. Stay selfish. Concentrate on you.
You cannot solve others problems. You cannot control other’s destiny. Concentrate on you. Purify yourself first. Understand your life. Help others

Stay here. Life is here. Your existence is here. The wind is blowing here. You are either in your past glorifying or lamenting it, or you are in your future worrying about it. Life is now. Life is singing a song. 

Life is now. Life is singing a song. Sing with the life. dance with the life.

Concentrate on your breath. Move with your breath. Inhale, exhale, and keep moving. You will feel sleepy. Do not sleep. Stay awakened. Stay alert. Concentrate on your breath. 

Stop concentration. Open the window of your body. Allow whatever thoughts are coming to you.

Do not get stressed. Stay unaffected. Life is now. Life is singing a song. Sing with the life, dance with the life. Laugh. Crack jokes. Just play with your life. Enjoy your life.

Accept negative and positive both. Live with moments. Because moments are full of life, the rest either gone dead (Past) or yet to come (Future). By the time you reach in your future, it becomes now. Hence, live with moments.

You can lead a happy, fearless life. But you are scared to live a free life. Your happiness depends on something. Your happiness depends on your fear. 

Worry is your enemy. Fear is your enemy. You worry that you are aging. You worry about your future. You worry about your family.

Your worry, your fear, is your enemy. You worry, you are aging. Aging gracefully is beautiful. Age will come. Wrinkles on your body will come, it is natural. To avoid wrinkles surgery is not needed.

Do not fear of becoming old. Making aging a beautiful experience, set an example.   Make aging a fashion, set a trend. Make old age attractive. Meditate and develop a magnet kind of aroma around you.  

Just keep sailing with moments and you will never grow old. Age, do not get old. Avoid worries. Do not try to shape others life; you cannot. Do not worry about others future; their life will take care of it. You cannot change others destination.

Moments are always fresh, virgin. Keep moving with moments and you will stay charming forever. This way you will never become old, weak.

Do not make choices, do not keep obstacles, simply accept it, whatever is coming to you. Accept it in awareness, and stay fresh always.

Watching your stress, coming and going, without getting affected is a great power. This power comes through meditation.  

Try this exercise, select a secluded place. Stay alone. Take a bath. Stay nude. Become wild. Perform all kinds of crazy stunts. Like, shout, shriek, dance sing, do all crazy things till you are completely exhausted. You may fall. 

And when you fall, float with those moments, do not swim. Do not start thinking about your mundane life, about your future.

Jiffy ago life exploded inside you. You missed it. You are somewhere else, either in your past or in your future, living in your imagined life.

When life explodes inside you, feel this glorious explosion. Stay there. No force, total surrender, simply, float with this sacred explosion.

When there is no fear in you, when there is no society’s dictate, when you have dropped all inhibitions, when no one is around, that time you have become like a circle, where all angels are same that particular moment for a second you become silent. 

In that sacred silence, for the first time, you meet God; you meet you.

Take life as a song. Sing a song. Dance with the life. Enjoy the pain. Enjoy the happiness. You will age not old; always fresh, always young.

And finally, when I go I shall be leaving behind a song for the wind to sing in a whisper- 

“Once upon a time under the sky, behind the tree, untouched by age...
