August 2015 Taming the monster Ego is a mind construct that blurs our soul vision and hampers our spiritual growth. It has consumed civilisations over and over again. Suma Varughese has interpreted this complex fiction with her easy-to-understand style interspersed with explanations from masters and personal life experiences. This is one of the most efficient articles on the subject I have ever read. She not only goes on to explain so dextrously the need for destroying all alter egos of the false self to let the Real Self survive and evolve in peace, but has also skilfully strung out the techniques to achieve this true divine state of being, where you start drawing your wisdom from the cosmic source. Let us strive to let the e-go… -Rajeev Chaudhry, Pune The Life Positive lifeline I have been reading Life Positive for the last seven years. Each issue brings forth a wealth of encouraging thoughts and spiritual insights. I can say that we, in this sansar sagar, are being tossed by strong whirling currents of disappointment, frustration, and sadness. Life Positive throws to us lifelines to support us and help us to tide over these feelings, holding which we can come to the shore safely. Kudos to the editor and the support staff! -A S Dandekar, Mumbai A bouquet of wonderful writers I love Life Positive. I have changed after reading its articles. I love the simplicity of Suma Varughese’s writing which is always close to reality. Shameem Akhtar’s yoga column was most valuable, with precious information about body, mind and soul. Please start that again. I miss it. Megha Bajaj also writes on very appropriate subjects with great clarity. I also like reading Shivi Verma and Chitra Jha. Teaching Stories in Banyan Tree always teaches something good. Please ask Sr Shivani to write articles on how to live life. She is practical and easy to understand. I would appreciate more write-ups on diet for all ages. I find that there are too many advertisements, which are necessary, but I tend to doubt their authenticity. -Manju Kohli via email Accept praise This is with reference to the article Embrace that Praise by Punya Srivastava in the July 2015 issue of Life Positive. I thoroughly agree with the writer’s view that while we expect praise from others we find it difficult to accept it gracefully. We are in an awkward position most of the times as we debate on whether to say ‘thank you’ or keep quiet as both can be perceived differently. The article was well researched, and the writer’s own personal experience made the readers reflect on their own experiences. -Aditya via email Profound articles After coming to know about Life Positive magazine through a Whatsapp group, I have been regularly reading it, including many old issues of 2014. They all are great and so relevant that one finds answers to many compelling questions. The articles also set the tone for further introspection. Now I too have become a fan of this magazine. I love Editspeak by Suma Varughese which I find quite profound and amazing. I find Shivi Verma to be a wonderful writer too. After reading her article The quiet ones’in the February 2015 issue of the magazine, I found valuable pointers about my own self. You all inspire me a lot through your writings. I am full of gratitude for your lovely work. -Dipali Patnaik via email
