To Separate or Not to Separate

To Separate or Not to Separate

Blog
I went to boarding school at 13. My parents preferred it that way to shield us from the aftermath of a custody battle. This is my theory as I navigate the 40s. We started our married lives based on an intimacy with our boyfriend who became the husband OR We were holistically paired up as the best combination by our learned ones; in both situations the objective was to become intimate, procreate the human species and hopefully find solace in each other’s company. We were intimate as we gave them the power to make us feel secure , loved and happy. But intimacy is cliched as it also makes us feel insecure , unhappy and unwanted when our partners criticize , deny or hurt us.  Some hurt is irrevocable ;…

Slow down..take a break

This is a story shared by a Sanjeevani friend and follower: ------------- " I am a yoga teacher by profession and live in the city. Yesterday, we had first snow fall and it becomes chaotic esp in city for parking, traffic etc. Even though I am to be calm and in control but being human, I became a little grumpy trying to find a parking and treading on the snow fallen pavements and roads. And then I saw a man coming from the other end and he had a 3-4 year old kid perched on his shoulders. The kid was awestruck and his eyes were on the sky as he was enjoying the flakes fall on his face and trying hard to catch them all. The dad was beaming even…

Smile!

Smile!

Blog
Generally in my morning walk - I see regular walkers & runners and we always exchange a smile, a wave or a greeting. Most of these are from my own area and neighborhood. For the last few weeks, had been seeing a new gentleman in the path. He never reciprocated the greeting or smile. A few days into, I thought - huh - I won't greet either but the better of the mind took over instantly and I continued the morning greet. After all, it was an action of a tiny muscle on the sides of the lips, perhaps a minimal effort of my hand and two words out from my mouth. Big deal - also it is better to change oneself and having no ability to change others. I also…

In order to understand how to deal with depression, we have to first understand what depression is. Depression is such a state in your system, wherein your own body and mind stops taking instruction from you and starts behaving in a compulsive way. This simple understanding can be the first step taken towards healing depression.  Why do we get depressed? When things does not happen your way, when things are not under your control anymore, or you get upset and eventually such series of incidents makes you depressed. Depression if not handled soon can be very much self-damaging. Mostly, depressions are self-created, because you keep pushing the thin line which exists between sanity and insanity.  When you are sad, when you are angry, or when you are mad at somebody,…
