Consciously making a difference
Megha Bajaj muses on how we can make the world a better place by contributing positively to it in our individual capacities
There exists a stream of consciousness. It has been going on from way before you were born, it exists while you exist, and it will continue even after you are gone. Think of it like a train. You board the train at a particular station, take your seat, find a family in the bogie, and then get down at your designated destination. The train keeps going on. With you, without you.
Often, I hear people speaking of how the world is seeing troubles like never before. The pandemic itself has been a sign of how contaminated the stream has become. In the same breath, we just cannot ignore how the world is evolving. Spirituality is becoming second nature for many. Love is experienced in its depths by many. Yoga and sattvik ways of living are being adopted by the world like never before. It almost appears that there is a paradox: The stream has never been this beautiful and pure, or this filthy and contaminated before. And each of us living in it – depending on our dominant thoughts and feelings—are experiencing the stream either at its best or at its worst. Often, we experience both spectrums.
The question that I keep asking myself is, How can I enter the stream of consciousness by my consciousness, replenish the stream, and in turn, be replenished by it? How can I play my part, in contemporary terms, to clean up the train I board and leave it sparkling for the next set of passengers?
The understanding that everything I do in my individual consciousness affects the larger consciousness is the start of everything. When I realise that my thoughts, my emotions, my words, my actions don’t just affect me but everything, I learn to become a lot more responsible for them. One of the best ways we can change the world is by changing ourselves.
Taking care of our health seems so basic, so simple; yet, it affects not only our home and our life but also the world. By being fit, we add to the healthy vibrations, and, in turn, reduce the vibrations of sickness. I realised that one of the ways in which I can fight the pandemic is by working on my own health. The more positive vibrations I add and the more I inspire others to do so, the more the negativity will start diminishing automatically.
Treating our workplace like a temple, where the deepest of commitment, love, and ethics are followed will ensure that everything we do towards our profession adds to the vibrations of overall goodness and well-being. Working for money is a very myopic way of looking at things. Working towards a purpose should be the norm and will make all the difference.
When a family becomes a unit connected by love, peace, and bliss (some discord is natural), it adds tremendous goodness to the overall consciousness. Visualise a particular bogie in the train laughing, loving, sharing, and meditating. It would, in turn, inspire and excite every bogie to do the same.
Finally, the role of sitting in Silence, or non-doing, in replenishing the stream can just not be overestimated. Every time we meditate and go deep into Silence, we inherit the purest part of the stream. The highest of vibrations. And in turn, we add that to the overall stream as well. Meditating is literally like cleaning ourselves and the world in ways we cannot even imagine.
I have come to realise that I am but a part of the whole. And yet, but for me, the whole would not be whole. And by playing my role, in purifying myself, my life, I am leaving the world a better place.
