Life is for celebration

I have always found myself and others brooding over the murkiness of the past and worrying about the uncertainty of future. Somehow, we are disconnected from the present.

I have always found myself and others brooding over the murkiness of the past and worrying about the uncertainty of future. Somehow, we are disconnected from the present.

Instead of telling ourselves 'all is well', we burden ourselves with unnecessary load of worries. And this leads us nowhere; instead we get disillusioned with life.

We have failed to realise that we are one of the most beautiful creations of God, sent to fulfil our assigned mission here on this planet and celebrate the spirit of a grand festival that is called Life.

Dr Brian Weiss, renowned past life regression therapist and author of ‘Messages from the Masters ‘ says that life on Earth is a mere transition.

Ultimately, it is for the soul to decide which body to lay claim to. We are all rowing the same boat. It is just a matter of difference in levels of consciousness.

Some souls may have evolved while others might be on the way. The body is just a cloak that the soul sheds after a destined time. This can be best understood by taking into account the process of sloughing.

Has anyone seen a snake wailing on shedding its skin? No. In the same manner, there is no point grieving over material benefits. Seeking and consequently suffering for temporal bodily pleasures is not only pointless but is born out of sheer ignorance as a result of misunderstanding.

Many go through their whole lives without actually living it.

They keep on waiting eternally for that one moment of happiness. One doesn’t require Near Death Experience (NDE) to realise the value of one ‘s life, points out Dr Brian.

The world is one big grinding mill that has never spared even a single being. So, why to wait? Everything is here and now. Let go of all the fears and drench in the spirit of life. When this shift in attitude and approach seeps into our lives, colours seem to be more colourful and music more melodious. Is there any point in asking for more? Celebrate life as if there is no tomorrow!
