Exploring Holistic Living

On June 10, 2015, an event was hosted by Bijay Minhas, LMSW where I had an opportunity to meet a group of wonderful women who in spite of their busy schedules as partners; mothers; colleagues; boss; caretaker; friend, got together in Morris Plains, NJ. Together we explored, learned, and shared how and what we can do to rise higher to take care of ourselves first and to help our near and dear ones. The group was very enthusiastic and very interested in “Holistic Living”. I admire them for who they are!!!   We discussed the three states of human mind Tamas (dark, ignorant), Rajas (active, pleasure seeking), Sattva (most powerful, peaceful), and how having knowledge about them can reduce daily psychological, family, and social stresses.   Benefits of meditation   We discussed how meditation can help almost everyone to have more clarity about our thoughts and actions and its effect on ourselves and others around us; to control our mind; to discipline ourselves; to know ourselves; to identify our real priorities; to make realistic goals and take appropriate steps to achieve them, while remaining unattached to them so that we don’t lose our real identity. Yes goals are important but when we are not at peace from within; we tend to lose our spiritual selves in them or get too attached to them, we feel internal turbulence which eventually starts showing up in all our actions and relationships.

What Makes The Quality of Your Life?

“Your brain is constantly Deleting, Distorting & Generalising the information you take in from the world around you through your five senses.   One of the ways it decides what to focus on and what to delete is by filtering out the information that doesn’t correlate with our beliefs.       So whatever you believe about yourself and the world you live in – are the very things that your brain will draw in and contextualize from the world around you. This in turn becomes your life, and the path by which you live and breath. This is how the one world around us is seen in so many different ways by so many different people all living on the same street. For some this world is full of promise and for others it is full of premise. SO.. What makes your Quality of life?   The quality of your life, career & relationships is measured by the sum total of the emotions you experience in your day/week/month/year and lifetime. Your quality of life is not measured by how much you earn or the car you drive. All of these things are ways we find to try to change the way we feel inside and to change the way we feel about ourselves. If we are regularly feeling good and happy, communicating with others in a way that reciprocates these feelings then we have a good quality of life. If however we regularly feel bad, low, angry, misunderstood, depressed and we emanate this then – we are living a low quality of life… no matter what our material situation....
