Death takes me closer to life

From more than a year, I’m doing a small exercise of experiencing death everyday. 

Early morning, before leaving my bed I feel each part of my body dying.

I begin with my feet and as I reach the brain, the whole body gets frozen. I can also feel the separation of soul (life energy) from the body. After witnessing my death body for couple of minutes,  I imagine the entrance of life energy within me. Then, I slowly instruct each part of my body to come alive. I begin with the brain and as I reach towards feet, the whole body feels fluid, dynamic, refresh and grateful.   

This small exercise has taken me closer to life. This small activity has raised the level of compassion and sensitiveness (within me)  towards every living entity. 

Now, I don’t get quickly irritated by the mosquito bite. I walk consciously, to protect ants’kingdom. If I can’t help others, I silently pray for them. If I can’t be with those who need me, I send them strong loving and healing vibrations. If my parents say something which I don’t agree, instead of showing strong disagreement, I try to understand their love and concern towards me. 

Witnessing death everyday has inspired me towards body fitness and towards to travel ing light while alive (lighter than the speed of light :P). 

Remembering death has also helped me to drop off unnecessary baggage of issues and shifted me towards love and laughter.

And this is what matters!

Habit of Journaling, noticing small joys and expressing love : Another 100 days focus

I’m beginning with a combination of new habits, which may sound different, however, they are closely interconnected. 

For the next 100 days I’ll focus on the habit of writing every thing,  (small, big, trivial, significant etc.) noting down things which pops over my mental screen and tickles my heart. 

And for this, the tools I’ll use is : 

1.Journal/notebook : Take it wherever I go.

2.Small cards : Note down small moments of joy and drop it in a handmade box. 

3.Expression :Express love and gratitude towards life and people through gratitude notes and love letters. Tell people how much they matter to me. 

 

Beginning matters

Draw a tiny dot now, instead a complete drawing.
Pick up a tiny pebble, instead a heep of sand.
Write a sentence, instead a complete paragraph.
Read the title, instead a complete book.
Walk few step, instead a Marathon.

Begin. Just begin, even if it’s rediculously small. Only action activates series of actions.

Started writing love letter

Started writing love letters to myself from today. And I plan to experiment this new way every day for atleast a month.

It felt good to express love and affection towards myself. I felt the flow of positive electrons as I carved out qualities in me that lifted my life.

(This new venture is been inspired by the book I’m reading these days : You Can Heal Your Life by Louis L Hay)
