Introspection -The lost art

There is a cycle of chain. Once we are clung to that, the wheel just rotates until battery drains. Never have we got a chance to look back. What happened to that vision of living a fully intentional life?

Immersed in the daily routine, we often forget to offer a little space and time to our own self.

So the game is on, post your questions for self analysis…let us think on your words…

My two cents…

“What has been the most interesting part of your week?

Can you remember that one thing which made you smile today?”

Let us hear your thought provoking questions and bring that lost art of introspection back.

      True..it’s the true gift or blessing one can have.. waking up watching those lovely smiles…and most importantly you are ready to accept that without overseeing

    Something interesting I like to share is this recurring dream, each night for several weeks now I dream being in a darken room its cold and I cannot see nothing but each time I call out to anyone and my wife respond to me from the darken room. I instantly get happy and forget that I’m in that darken room.

    Thank you for the thought-provoking article, Akhila. There is an old program running that turns to brainwashing, constantly insisting that “the routine” is reality and the mind self is nothing but childish imagination. It takes a great deal of effort and serious philosophical work to put the horse back before the cart and insist that the mind self is the reality; that the routine and all the foolishness and horror attendant, is elitist programming to keep the majority believing in garbage, listening to and mouthing lies and putting value in “stuff” that has no inherent value.

    Here’s the test of what’s truly “real” and has value: can you take it with you when you die? Man’s modern world does not deserve to continue. It is not only materially unsustainable, it has turned away from the reality of true morals and the virtuous lifestyle. Hence the corruption in all high places; hence the terror; hence the wars. These are cancerous forces that will destroy this civilization in a relatively short time now. This isn’t prophecy, it’s simple observation.

      Great observation shatara. If one can have answer to that question, will you take this when you die, he or she will have a rethink..

    Anything that made me smile today?
    I don’t know I have had a very rough week and even the weekend seems pretty irritating but anyways one thing that I look up to is talking to a friend of mine. When nothing works, I think talking things out surely does.

    The best thing that happened in my week, is not really anything that I anticipated. I find that I enjoy most of it because I am alive, and the sun is shining. I think of all the things I am blessed to be able to access and am grateful.

    Yes.. Such talks are very less nowadays. We all are caught up with this mundane way of living.
    Last tuesday relatives visited us, so took a break for four days and spent good time with them. Went to temples and outside for shopping. They returned back day before yesterday. Felt as if such days don’t last long.

    Have a good time, Akhila. 🙂

        Yea.. That’s true. That’s the reason may be I wrote that post of detachment way of living that day. Haha.. But it is difficult to follow.

        Have a great time Akhila. 🙂
