‘Courage is the ladder on which all the other virtues mount.” writes Clare Boothe Luce.
It requires enormous courage to acknowledge our deficiencies and make a 360degree change in our personality to be acknowledged and acceptable. Normally we live in a state of denial.
Man is a social being who is in seek of recognition and positive strokes. Only a sage or a mad person does not require attention.
This piece is on my personality development and various bottlenecks encountered in the path.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says” If you can win over your mind ,you can win over the whole world”. Body and mind are the precious gifts of nature. And we neglect them leading to physical and psychological disorders.
We torture our bodies through various forms of addictions, be it excessive sex, smoke, substance, alcohol, food, desire for power etall. The mind is cluttered with innumerable thoughts which impede clarity in thinking. On an average we receive around 50k to 60,000 thoughts and most of them are negative in nature. These thoughts are either fretting about our past or anxiety of what is expected in the future. We are never in the present moment. Living in the present moment is a state of meditation and almost devoid of desires where nature works wonders . How does one reach being in the present state? There are several techniques and each one finds his or her path .
I became an alcoholic and a heavy smoker . It had a deleterious impact on my mind and body . I was hospitalised, operated upon and put in a rehab. Simultaneously relations with family, friends , parents , place of work get jeopardised . One gets categorised as a no- brainer.
My dalliance with alcohol was for more than 15 years . Astrologer friends blamed my fate on planetary configurations. Basically I was at war with myself . I could not pursue my areas of interests that is theatre and had to settle for a job in the government ( Indian Railway Traffic Service) . I was selected to the Indian Police Service but was dissuaded from joining that job . This added to my frustration as I lost out on POWER. Slowly I hit the bottle and the situation worsened.
I overcame addiction through various Art Of Living Programmes . The fulcrum of all Art Of Living programmes is the unique breathing technique called Sudarshan Kriya( Proper Vision Process) which has magical curative powers. Today by the grace of the Master , I am an Art Of Living Teacher as well.
As Sri Sri says” Only the presence of the master will bring fulfilment to your life and to all your relations.”
Breathing techniques and meditation are extremely powerful and can harmonise body , mind ,thoughts complex . Srinivas Iyengar says” breath does not mean air taken in and exhaled , but the Prana( subtle life force) that is the magnetic current of breath.
