Throwing the trash out

Sayantan Sen

One of my most refreshing entertainments is sitting idle, doing nothing and observing everything mindfully. I don’t do it as a chore. But I do it when I feel my mind is overworked and is thinking a lot of thoughts.

I just sit back. Relax. And let go all of my to-do lists, interpretations and temptations to do something else.

I sit for few minutes to few hours.

But after the session I feel refreshed, full of new ideas to work upon and completely present in this moment.

That’s why I recommend a complete day in silence if you want to throw out all the trash.

It will not go away by force, because force creates another force and it actually increases the intensity of what you are trying to avoid.

So don’t resist it.

Just sit, relax and let go of everything.

I bet you will be renewed, refreshed…

The choices we make…

Rethinking Life

leave
us
with
the
kind
of
lives
and
society
we
have
so
paper
books
are
disappearing
because
people
have
chosen
to
stop
buying
and
reading
them
a
vote
was
taken
the
results
are
in
and
it
is
clear
that
most
people
want
to
read
their
books
on
an
electronic
device
the
majority
rules
unless
you’re
the
government
then
all

are
off
and
the

Grieve Too Long?

Source of Inspiration

How long can one grieve?
Some say three months, six months
one year; then it becomes
self-indulgence. Where is the
line that one crosses when he
feels as if part of his soul
has been taken? Can grief be
measured in hours, days, years?

Yet it does seem that one must
get on with one’s life eventually,
otherwise, what is the point of
staying? But how does we do this?
Let it go, bury ourselves in busyness,
pretend the pain is not there?

Still, grief is about the griever,
not what has been lost. What makes
us hang on to sadness and despair?
If it is true that we can change our
feelings, certainly there comes a
time in mourning when we must do so.

Faith helps…it always does.

So does getting involved in life
again so we do not stay focused
on ourselves. Not easy, but doable.
