When feeling low, be deeply low.
When feeling high, be deeply high.
That’s how we return to the middle, where low & high merge into one another – a state of gratitude.
We struggle to find the mid line when we try to travel opposite i. e at low we search for things which lift us and at high altitude we worry about things which may drag us down!
Because a thankless mind ends up finding chaos (zig zag patterns) and a thankful mind begins with peace (straight line of faith) and scrolls back again towards the stable line of harmony with existence.
Yesterday, I wasn’t well. I had a cold and severe headache.
Today, while I was coming downstairs for the breakfast Lalita Aunty [Lady guard of our hostel] stopped me and said, ‘Main abhi aapke baare mein hee soch rahi thi ki, Amrita dikhi nahi..pata nahi tabiyat theek hui ki nahi. Ab kaisi hai tabiyat?’ [Rough english translation : I was thinking about you, how’s your health now?]. I sarcastically said, ‘Aap to mujhe 100 saal tak zinda rakho. 😉‘ Then I thanked her for thinking about me and assured her that I’ve recovered from cough and headache.
On the surface, it’s a very little thing, however, if we take a pause and notice it carefully we’ll realize it’s a huge thing!
Giving someone a place in your mind, investing the time and energy in thinking about the well being of a person – IT’S REALLY A BIG THING. And I feel so humbled and fortunate to be a part of someone’s mind [thoughts]. Just took ‘Gratitude pinch! It also makes me aware of the responsibility which comes when we feel sheltered under somebody’s caring umbrella.

Doing things which our mind tells us : *to put-off *they are difficult
brings satisfaction and builds self- confidence.
The only way we can break the procrastination chain or the habit of postponing things is by taking immediateaction . Act in the present. Move an inch but move, it will acts as a Glucon-D or Sona Chaandi Chyavan Praash for the mind-body-heart.
