What's your calling?

How do we define ourselves? By our career? Hobbies? Qualifications? The way we look? Dress? Talk? But arent these just external factors?

We are addressed with different identities.. But is it really us? We are, and always have been influenced by the people, circumstances and situations in our life! And we let it influence us in such a way that we begin to change ourselves, our behaviour and our path in life! And before we know it, we are not living the life we are intended for, but instead the living the life (LIE) which is expected from us. We behave, talk, act and even make important life decisions in a way that is expected from us, not the we want it!

When you live such a life, at some point you realize, this is not what you wanted.. but sometimes it gets too late! Don’t let that happen to you!

For example, someone, makes a career decision on the basis of what his friends are doing, or what his parents expect from him, is not going to fulfill the purpose of his life. Its jus going to lead to more unhappiness and frustrated life.  

Or being in a relationship that is not right for you, especially when you enter it for the reasons other than genuine love, is walking on a destinationless path.

We have to loose ourselves (get rid of the parts of you which are created by others!) in order to find ourselves again, to build our lives again without any restrictions and barriers! You have to find your true calling, your purpose on this planet! Your passion! Find your calling!

No one else but yourself can help you get out of this! If you are not happy about an aspect of your life, don’t blame, crib and sulk over it! Take charge and change your life the way you want! Because at the end.. there is no right and wrong.. its just what suits you best..

Gautum Buddha, was destined to be a king, he was living the royal life which was expected of him. But when it was necessary for him, to choose his life path, he kept others expectations, the circumstances aside and went after what he wanted, he decided to fulfill his purpose of life!

Now i don't intend for everyone to meditate and leave worldly pleasures, all of us have a different  purpose, a different destiny to fulfill. We are on a journey to loose ourselves, to find our true selves!

Rendezvous with the Universe.

Every once in a while, we all do feel, lost and lonely! We feel completely estranged and secluded even though we are in a crowd.. BUT ARE WE EVER ALONE? I highly doubt that!

I call it the Universe.. others have different names for it.. Some even call it their guardian angels. These are the ones.. that never leave us.. they are there around us.. for each waking moment.. and even in our dreams!

And the BESSST part is.. the universe does communicate with us! We jus see it in different ways! Its slowly and very subtly nudges us in the path we are intended to be on! The universe is here to help us! To help us arrive at our destination! Where we have always meant to be!

Now, I am not talking Materialistically! But Spiritually! Like I have said before.. The main goal for a human is to be happy. Listen to the Universe, and you are sure to be happy! It may even come to you in the least expected form!

We, humans have a very unique way of interpreting the messages from the Universe. Some of us call it “Signs” some call it “Coincidence” Have you ever been angry, that you didn’t get something.. just to later on realize how stupid it was to want that in the first place?

And some of us even get annoyed.. “Why doesn’t the Universe tell us what to do directly and we will just do it” Now.. wouldn’t that be way too easy?!?! Where is the fun in that??

Nevertheless this should not be considered like a treasure hunt.. you and the universe aren’t in two different teams contesting against each other! You are on the SAME TEAM! And the universe wants to guide you! 

Don’t agree with that?!? Its okay.. I’ll give you another example.. have you been lost in thought.. with music playing in the background.. perhaps a random radio station.. and then a song starts which suits your situation exactly!?!? The first thing you think of is.. “OH! What a cool coincidence!” However, it’s the Universe, whispering in our ears “I understand what you are going through.. I understand your pain, your happiness and even your struggle!”

But most of the times, we dismiss these Messages and Whispers of the Universe as coincidences.. and some times we don’t even bother to give it a second thought!  That’s our mistake.. that’s where we loose out on the opportunity!

For example, you really want to work in a company, but this mere a thought in the back of your mind.. and then one day, all of a sudden, you see a vacancy available for the position you always wanted.. Now that’s a definite sign from the universe! The Universe’s way to open closed doors for you!

We just need to open our eyes.. and Look! Be quiet.. and Listen to the whispers of the Universe! And then you will realise that a Rendezvous with the Universe, is the best one you could have!

Please, Please leave a comment below! And let me know whether you liked this week’s post! And I am also really sorry about the delay in posting this! Please let me know, what other topics you’ll would like to hear on! And please share your experiences with the universe as well! Or whether you even believe in these signs? Or these are jus coincidences! Any suggestions and comments are welcome!
