Hello To My Dear Readers ❀

This may not apply to everyone, but I have realized, that sometimes we are so focused on running behind things, or find life is being difficult, we forget about all the things and blessings we already have, and then usually we are given a reminder or a message in someway. I was told this by my mother, “That when you tell your challenges to someone, they will tell their story, and you will wonder what ~ “you are complaining about”! So this has been happening to me sometimes, and since recently too, that has made me to write this article!

A 62

Although extreme challenges are not faced by each and everyone, I know there are some more than others, who has and are going through, very hard times due to problems in health, relationships and finances or all of them at once, that somehow it seems, life is not fair to them. I don’t know how exactly to explain this but, in life in every situation, “There are exceptions”. But from my experiences I can tell that, although initially it seems like that, later on when we look back, all that make sense. Those who face and overcome the toughest battles end up the strongest souls. So do, “Hold on to your Faith and be Patient, until things move in your favour at the correct time ❀

A 61
So I am one of these people who have gone through, very tough battles and know what life’s difficulties are. As a compassionate human being, I find it very difficult to see the innocent and those without a voice go through pain and unnecessary suffering, and have always had this great need to, “Heal and bring Peace and Happiness to mankind and animals alike” This is a long held dream and I have worked very hard for a long time, towards this cause with sheer Dedication and Sacrifice. And it is such a great feeling of relief to see that, “My Dream is being realized now” πŸ™‚

A 63
As “We are all born unique to each other” the challenges that we face are not the same, and hence our paths or our mission in life also differs according to our uniqueness. In the same way, our Blessings also come in different ways. The important thing we need to remember is that, “We are All Blessed in some way, and to be Aware of it Always” ❀

A 64

How do you feel about the Blessings in your life? Do you think you are Blessed or sometimes do you forget or lose Faith like me? As we are all human beings, we are not perfect and here and there when things happen to upset us, we do wonder, question about the process of life. When this happens something I do is to turn to prayer. The Power of Prayers! is my Strength, Medicine for all ailments, and answers to all my questions. Let me know your views too. Until then I send you Many Blessings ❀

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❀

Hope all of you are keeping well and Happy. Last article I wrote aboutΒ Things We Love to Do!Β Now here I am writing that, “All Good Things don’t come that easily ~ meaning if we want a good and successful life, we need to work hard towards them. For this we need to accept change and also to be ready to move out of our comfort zone ❀

ZZZ 1a
Moving out of our comfort zone is like, taking an adventure. If we really want to better our lives, we need to take it as a positive experience. We need to, know our passion, our dreams and follow our instincts to achieve our goals. This results in taking trips to unknown destinations. Taking risks and travelling on paths not gone before. But it all depends on your attitude ❀

ZZZ 2a
On our journey, to find new and better quality of life, we will observe and learn many new things, from seeing new places and meeting many new people. Life is beautiful but it can be challenging and difficult too. All of that is, for us to face our difficulties overcome them and go to the next level. Very often if we don’t get pushed we don’t move. In moving on, we need to keep our minds open for things of beauty and wonder πŸ™‚

ZZZ 3a
Keeping our minds open for new and better things, brings us new and a better life. Things can change any time in life, so we need to be Patient as, we are not aware what the next moment will bring us. Although we have to work hard, and do work hard, the opportunities and new doors that open, will only open at the correct time. Until such time, we have to keep going and Not give up. We need to keep our Faith and Trust in the process of Life ❀

ZZZ 4a
Thank you for reading. I hope you found some useful hints to better your life. Any questions are welcome. You may share and/or pass it on for others who can benefit from what I have written ❀

Stigma 14

I hope you all enjoyed reading the first two articles on the chakras. I am taking a break and writing on a very important topic which is about the, “Stigma in Mental Health” The reason I thought of writing this topic is, now after almost 5 years since it was declared that, “I have come back to normal”, there are some who are still trying to classify me as unwell. The disappointing fact is, this is to do with some people whom I thought knew me very well, that are like family, that my eye went to this quote. These people seems not to have, “Any sort of experiences, knowledge and are clueless about mental health to know that, “I have come so far in attaining knowledge not only on mental health and also on other matters in life. And now that, “I am mentally healthy and also a motivator” I cannot understand how some can see me otherwise!

*IF YOU THINK YOU ARE MENTALLY WELL JUST SPEND ONE DAY WITH YOUR FAMILY*
Site 1

I have written before too, that millions world over are going through depression and other mental health problems. And the world Health Organisation has stated that depression will be the biggest cause of health burden by 2030!

Stigma 13

In Australia alone, one is seven experience major depression in their life time. But 70% of them will not seek treatment. One of the main reasons for this is the stigma. This is actually common almost world over. But why does it have to be different from being physically sick?

Stigma 8
When there are even Royalty and World leaders who support and work towards improving mental health and acknowledge mental illness are also, just like physical illnesses, there are some others even highly educated, who are foolish enough to be ignorant of what mental illnesses are. And this is what is causing the stigma and preventing people seeking medical help to get themselves better!

Stigma 1
There are so many who suffer from various physical illnesses. They do get better and overcome them, even cancer goes into remission and then they go about as normal human beings. Then Why? when the mind becomes ill and becomes well and/or goes into remission they can never get over the label as mentally ill? Mind is also part of the body, it is not outside floating somewhere! Why cannot people as human beings with good brain power cannot think of this?

Stigma 7
As someone who has completely overcome, why I am writing is, to do my duty even in a small way, in standing up for those who are going through their own problems. As, if as many as those who can speak out on behalf of the people who are in need of support and enlighten the society, the world what mental issues are, the world will be a better place with more healthy and happy people πŸ™‚

Stigma 11
Are you ready to support? To stand up? Or are you one of those who try to push and see others fall? But the fact is, we are all connected. All of us are energy and one goes down it affects all the others like the ripples in the water. Why is it that some are unable to support others and see them rise up? As, “We Rise by Lifting Others” Are you Ready to support to, “Stop the Stigma”? We are all soul brothers and sisters. One family that belongs to each other!

Stigma 5

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❀

I welcome all the new bloggers, followers and readers with happiness, and a big thank you for the old and the new readers. We are growing and I am glad that so many are finding what I write useful. Most of all it gives me great pleasure in giving out my knowledge and experiences for the benefit of others welfare ❀
Its over one year since a wicked soul robbed some of my confidential documents and some other sentimental things, to confuse and upset me, knowing what my mental condition was. Against all odds I have completely overcome the situation and bounced back even stronger. I was told by my doctor that it was a good test to see how I could cope, and how strong I have become mentally, which is a great leap forward. Yes to have gone through that storm, has certainly given me more confidence and further strengthened me πŸ™‚

Adversity 2a
We all know in life, things keep on changing and we need to adapt and change with the current situations. Each change is a challenge, a test that comes for us to overcome to go to the next level. You can take these tests as how ever you believe in, by Almighty God, The Higher powers or The Universe. All living beings even the trees and what ever in nature, the whole environment goes through these changes. Our survival depends on, “How successfully we face and adapt to these changes” πŸ™‚

Adversity 1
Once we have overcome these challenges, the curve balls life throws at us, we find we have come out as a different people, than before, with more strength and resilience to face even stronger challenges that come our way ❀

Adversity 3
When life hits you hard, when you face the storms and tornadoes that come upon you, that is when you need to be most calm. Take a step back, study the situation, stay strong, stay grounded and then you are able to know exactly how to tackle the challenges and tests that come as wild weathers of destructive storms and the tornadoes. As in life there are some things, that we can only learn during a storm!

Storm 3

I hope you liked what I have read and found something useful to make use of your stormy times. Please share and pass on to others who can make use of the article. Thank you fr reading ❀

Hello To My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

A year is ending and. “All endings are another Beginning” As we go on in life everyday, each minute we are learning until the last day of our life. I learn from everyone, young or old, even animals and mother nature. We all need to keep on learning, as human beings we can take the wrong turn and need guidance from time to time and this is why, we all have two parents foremost, if not one then the other, teachers and religion. Because it is not like doing little mistakes when we are growing up, when we are older and mature we are aware what is wrong and right and knowingly harming others can lead to disaster. As human beings we have so many ways of educating ourselves on our own too and, as adults if we keep on doing the same mistakes, it leads one’s life into lot of trouble. This is not anyone’s doing but,Β  “It is according to The Laws of The Universe – what goes around comes around” It is not one but, ” We all come under this same law – no exception”!

Lion 13a
We can learn from many, but for all of us there is that one person, a role model, who really understand you and able look up to when in trouble for guidance. This can be a religious figure, teacher, friend or even sometimes we are guided from above, by a higher or a divine power that cannot be seen, but felt. Why? “Because we are all energy, one family, part of this universe. We all come from the same place and go back to the same place. Dust to dust Ashes to ashes”!

Lion 14
So this is in, “Gratitude to that person who was my role model when he was alive, and now no more but still guiding me from above. The Lion, “Who will Not let me fall” I am most Grateful for your Guidance, Protection, Blessings and “The Gift” ❀

Lion 12

Who also named me – “Light”. Ignorance means being in the dark, and depression is also called darkness. And it somehow happens, after years of his passing away, I happen to work towards helping/enlightening others, to come into the Light!

Lion12
There is so much suffering in this world right now. Illnesses, war and famine. This is all because of people thinking of being separate. Religion, colour and race are big problems. So many who have, do not want to give, share or donate to the needy. So much is being wasted when millions are suffering without basic food, water and health facilities. Love and Kindness is what is needed. If everyone can think what hurts oneself hurts the other person too will they do it? I wonder. This is why most of those who have gone through suffering emerge strong souls and work towards the welfare of others πŸ™‚

Lion 3

Money play a very big part in the world today to the extent the human qualities are being forgotten. Yes money is needed to pay bills no one gives us anything free, but there is so much money cannot do. What matters is who you are and your heart!

Lion 9

His advice, to be simple and work in silence. So have I. It is not advertising to the world who and what you are. It is being a good person and working in silence to the good of humanity!

Lion 8a
It has been a, “Very Long and Hard Journey” and I believe I have come to some sort of end. No one needs to tell you physically, when you go on the spiritual path, one is able to receive and know the signs and the messages. As again it is to do with Darkness and Light. It is said, “It is darkest before dawn” You know what an end is, But then ” Life begins again” For now I am at Peace πŸ™‚

Lion 4

So then I hope all of you liked the pictures and the lessons I have learnt from my spirit of the Lion. Ending my article, my mind never sleeps because:

Lion 12a
There are powers that the normal human eye or the mind cannot see. Developing wisdom, sixth sense or the third eye, through prayers or meditation will help to see beyond what the normal human senses are not capable of. Persistence and lot of hard work, but it is possible. There are many who has developed themselves spiritually, that go about in life quietly working towards the welfare of others, as advancement of the mind is not for publicity, but for pure service!

Hello To My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

Many of you must be busy getting ready for Christmas, for those who are celebrating, I wish you all, “A Very Merry Christmas” Remember it is not all about celebrating, but to honour Lord Jesus Christ’s birth, we need to remember his teachings of love and peace and also give and share with those who are less fortunate and in need. “In giving you shall receive” And you will be blessed too in turn ❀
From time to time in life we face so many challenges. Sometimes we are pushed and pulled in all directions as if we are consumed by fire. Although these quotes say of women, it is relevant to men too. So don’t think it is only meant for ladies. With my experiences and with so many sayings, when it comes to mental strength somehow it seems women are more resilient. I believe this is something to do with mostly having to be mothers, as mother’s need to be strong and even fierce to protect their children. But in every situation there are exceptions, some are strong and some are not!

A 141
Generally in life, we ourselves are not aware how strong we are until we have to act upon some difficult situation. There are so many men and women that stay quiet in daily life, but having to face an extreme situation can raise themselves like lions. I know this as I have this experience. It is for survival as we are born to survive. That is why we are given so many tools in our human body to survive adverse situations, as well as being able to read, get advice and learn to cope with life. At any time, “Never give up” you need to have faith and keep moving on with zest and zeal. You are born to survive and you have all what you need inside of you to face challenges and bounce back in style πŸ™‚

A 142

Its a short one unlike others, but when I get that urge I somehow have to put down in writing. May be someone is in need of this advice right now. Thank you for reading. Pass it on or share for those who can make use of it ❀

Hello To All My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

Thanking all those who read my articles and comment, like and follow my blog. Hope all of you are well and finding what I write useful in some way to further enhance and advance your life πŸ™‚
I don’t know if this topic is relevant to everyone, but this is something that I have had to be facing since sometime. We all know that mental illnesses are not recognized and understood, even by some of the so called educated people. Why I say, “so called educated people” is, if people are really educated, then they cannot be ignorant of the fact that mind becomes ill just like the body. As where is the mind? In the body! Then how can mind not become ill? Then why does mental illnesses looked down upon or seen them as some outcasts in the society?
It is well known that world over depression is a serious issue threatening the future, becoming the biggest health problem by 2030. There are millions who are depressed and millions yet to come. Suicide rate is going up. Valuable time and live’s are lost. So many kind and compassionate people are working, fighting to ease this problem in various fields, not only in the field of medicine. Communities have got together as groups, clubs to work towards helping in healing through hobbies, sports, physical and many mental therapeutic activities as well. What I am doing also here in my blog is , in a small way is contributing my knowledge and experiences towards those who can make use of them to know that they also can control and recover enough to be well and lead a normal and happy life. It is to show by example, “To give Hope” to those still battling!
But as life has it, I am having to deal with an issue of, not only of ignorance but, “Knowingly trying to confuse and push me back” In these circumstances what would you do? Do you think it is a kind and compassionate thing to do to another human being who has gone through such an ordeal through years and lifted her head up, and now is working towards the benefit of others, quietly with no harm or disturbance to anyone? What motive and mind set do you think this type of people have? As in the society there are many types of destructive people. How do you deal with them?

Courage 2

At the present stage of my life I have learnt to take them as, challenges that I have to face in order to overcome and become stronger. As we need challenges to test our strength and to move on to the next level of our lives. Life throws us curve balls from time to time and we do get shaken, but we can deal with them in many ways. Overcoming long term depression is not a small task, that shows, Strength, Courage and Patience, and above all Faith in the Powers above. I pray during sickness and sadness, for good health, in happiness, thankfulness and gratitude, daily morning and night, for myself and others. This is, where I derive, “My Strength” The Divine Powers which some have no clue. They think they can do anything and get away. For the moment yes. But not long term!

Courage 4
There is no way that negativity can bring down the positive. Dharma, Righteousness always overcome evil. Light always chases the darkness away. My name by birth itself is, “Light” Darkness can never defeat me. It is a Lion himself who named me, “Light” and, his spirit is guiding me. I lead my life in accordance to, “The Laws of The Universe” I adhere to to the correct principles in life. I give. I donate. I share what I have with anyone. Even this blog is giving and sharing, as I am sharing my knowledge with others. The gift of knowledge is supposed to bring the the highest blessings according to Buddhism. So how can those who are morally deteriorated put me down or anyone else for that matter. You who is reading, never get discouraged or let anyone put you down for no reason. Take every experience, as a challenge, to gain strength, courage and confidence and to achieve you goals and win πŸ™‚

Courage 5

These are things that happen in the society not only to me. Some do not want others to rise up. Sadly they don’t know that helping another is helping themselves. In giving you receive. In blessing you are blessed. What goes around come around. They are “The laws of The Universe” that applies to all. Abiding by them, “The Universe supports us πŸ™‚

Courage 1

I hope you like what I have written and found somethings useful. As these are things we all face in life from time to time. Pass on to others who can make use of it. Thank you for reading ❀
