A woman is healed by clasping at your cloak’s hem, The life and power in your Word completely astounds them. The man who dines with sinners assigns himself the Messiah’s task? And true to the voice in the desert, they begin to plot till dusk With a myriad of questions from resurrection to taxes, They […]

Like I mentioned in my last article, “Why We Meet the People We Meet”, I am fan of the many creation stories that exist out there. Many of these stories tell a tale of Source existing in a formless space of darkness. Source had always been there, unencumbered by the constraints of the illusion of […]

When we were little we used to make bets by crossing our pinkie fingers. These bets were binding, social contracts that we honored religiously (especially if they involved morning loaf in boarding school), and are one of my earliest lessons on honor and keeping my word. I’d never questioned why we used our pinkie fingers […]

Once upon no time, there was a little Soul who said to God, “I know who I am.” And God said, “That’s wonderful! Who are you?” And the Little Soul shouted, “I’m the Light!” God smiled a big smile. “That’s right!” God exclaimed. “You are the Light.” The Little Soul was so happy, for it […]

You can probably think of a few times you’ve said yes to something you didn’t want. For most of us, it was hardwired in our upbringing to be receptive to other people’s needs and that sacrificing for the good of others is a virtue to be sought after and admired. So when the boss hands […]

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience.

When we are driven by ego and fear, our natural disposition is to seek control over people and situations. Relationships are perfect ground for exerting such control whether consciously or unconsciously, because it is in relating with others that the ego feels most vulnerable to rejection and disapproval. So we tweak some details about ourselves […]

Colloquially, the term ‘ego’ is used to refer to a person’s sense of self-esteem or self-worth. To put it simply, it is a person’s self-image – who they think they are and who they would like others to think they are. It is the part of us that drives us to dress, speak, walk and […]

Self-exploration is the key to awakening the self and core to the human experience. While with the ascetics, Siddhartha spent a great deal of time and effort numbing his senses and denying himself the human experiences of hunger and contentment, pain and pleasure, desire and fulfilment. But now he realized that he didn’t need to […]

Until very recently, it seemed obvious that we only smile because we are happy. It made no sense to smile unless there was something to smile about. Scientists, however, have revealed the science of smiling that proves otherwise. Here’s the short version. When we experience a pleasant sensation, our brains send neuronal signals from the […]

The purpose of life is to gain the human experience and make peace with it. Once more, while pondering this discontent, rumours of a holy man, the Buddha named Gotama reached the Samanas in the village. It is interesting to note that even though the man was the Buddha, the holy of the holy, the […]

When Siddhartha’s discontent had grown to an almost frenzy, the stars aligned in his favour and a group of Samanas (ascetics – people who practiced a ruthless form of self-denial and discipline) passed through his town while on a pilgrimage. Their clothes were tattered, their backs were bloody and when they walked by, you could […]

I’ve recently finished reading Herman Hesse’s Siddhartha: The Prince who became Buddha, a suspenseful and enlightening narration by all accounts. In twelve short chapters we are told the story of Siddhartha who having grown up under the guidance of his father, a Brahman (priest), grows increasingly dissatisfied with the rituals of sacred ablution, offerings and […]

So there I was, broken; broken in every possible form –emotionally, physically, spiritually, sexually… There I was drenched in brokenness, the stench of bitterness reeking off me like alcohol on a drunkard. Bitterness was my vice now, after all, I was a battered woman; battered and beaten down by life, scorned by one too many. I […]

If you have ever felt ashamed, then you know just how severely it withers you. It makes you feel small. It bores into your self-esteem and corrodes it fervently. Shame takes away your self-worth. It persuades you to agree with other people who deem you unworthy. Sometimes good people do bad things. That doesn’t make them […]
