Hope Shines for My Dream Job!

Daily prompt : MONEY FOR NOTHING

If you’re like most of us, you need to earn money by working for a living. Describe your ultimate job. If you’re in your dream job, tell us all about it — what is it that you love? What fulfills you? If you’re not in your dream job, describe for us what your ultimate job would be.

The mere thought of my dream job fills my heart with sublime joy. Not that i don’t like my current job as a faculty at a management institute but at times my mind wanders to the fantasy land of day dreaming. In this magical world, i have long nurtured a dream of starting a wellness centre-” THE WELLNESS DEN” (named den-because i am a leo😊 )

This Wellness Den would be like a sanctuary to provide succour and respite to the harried souls battered by daily travails and trials. The focus would be on HEALTH in all its forms: physical, mental, psychological and spiritual.

The centre will have some of the best things one needs to live a wholesome life to achieve holistic health, like-organic vegetable counter, wonderful collection of books and music albums, a counter of fresh beautiful flowers and bouquets in assortment of colors, a counter for home made organic nutritious chocolates (i love making chocolates) and also a Healing Space.

This would be the place where any troubled, tired individual can cruise in to find solace and help. They’ll be able to soothe their eyes with soul-refreshing flowers, calm their agitated mind with inspiring books and music and also indulge their taste buds to uplift their mood with heavenly chocolates.

To heal their physical and psychological ailments, i would use my Pranic Healing skills to their best advantage. I will teach them meditations to help them find inner tranquility. I have always wanted to heal and cure people.

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, Live the life you have imagined”.

~Henry David Thoreau.

There was a time when i aspired to be a medical doctor, and for this i studied biological sciences till my graduation level. But over course of time i realised that the surgery aspect of medical course was something i would never be able to handle.( i can’t even look at an empty syringe for long). Hence i shifted towards management education. Still that inherent desire to heal didnot fade away and was residing within me. So i decided to learn Pranic Healing. I really feel empowered with the knowledge i have gained and i want to use it to alleviate the suffering of others.

In my little palace of serenity- The Wellness Den, i’ll  find my moments of joy by WRITING(something which is like oxygen to me) in my leisure time. I’ll be able to write at my own pace without a worry in my mind about the clock ticking away. And with so much bliss and happiness around, i think “writer’s block ” will not dare to stare at me even from afar. Maybe a time will come when i will spend my days writing awesome books and healing people.

Off course, i would charge a fees for the services in the centre to earn my daily bread and butter but it won’t be too high.I follow a simple basic lifestyle so even an average income will suffice. I don’t have any ambition for great luxuries in life. i just want to live a simple,serene life close to nature. My real gain from this endeavour would be the contentment i shall receive by being a source of solace and help to those in need, to see sense of relief and joy on the faces of those i heal.

Do i wish i had a magic wand to materialise this dream of mine as soon as possible ?

Yes sure, i do!  but things don’t manifest so fast in the real world. But the future holds endless possibilities. I hope my dream of starting and managing The Wellness Den turns into a reality sooner than later. Maybe a day will dawn when i will get to work daily as i dream of.

I am in total love with this idea and have cherished it for long. Even before this dream has been realised, it provides me immense joy and pleasure just to think about it.”I can escape  into this surreal place of bliss whenever i want”!

HAPPINESS IS YOUR TRUE NATURE !

Three Day Quote Challenge-Day 3

 

Quotes are like mini books. A few lines convey lot of information and sometimes it is very profound.

DAY 3 QUOTE :

 

IMG-20150725-WA0004

 

Every one in the world is seeking happiness but it seems to be ever elusive. Are we looking for it in the wrong places and directions? OR Is it that we are confusing happiness with pleasure?

In this day and age when hype and hypocrisy are almost the norm, most often we look for instant gratification. We assume that it will make us happy. We look for constant external stimulation to keep us in perpetual state of happiness and feel overjoyed by the external gratification we receive.  BUT this feeling is short-lived,temporary. We get engulfed and entangled in the ever expanding web of negative pride, false flattery, become trapped in our false identities and exhaust ourselves in the rat race.

And that leads us to the burning question : what causes this?

Most often the problem is the subliminal messages-the mainstream media, the wider culture, society and the marketers beam into our psyche. We become victims of borrowed perceptions. We start believing the fake claims that are made although they are false, contrived and manipulated.  

We live in an overwhelmed world with more than we can handle. We soon become aware of the imperfections of the material world we inhabit.

Let us stop for a few moments, to consider and reflect ! To cast aside illusions and get to the heart of reality. True happiness lies in the satisfaction when we are connected to our inner core, when we are in total sync with our true nature; we have to look within us and ponder deeply. External gratification is only an” Escape Mechanism” from the dissatisfaction and confusion in the deeper recesses of our mind, and that is no match for true happiness.

Let us find some middle ground which is not too idealistic for the real world and search for our corner of eternal, long lasting happiness. I am sure it lies somewhere within each one of us. To recount my own experience, i have had short glimpses of this nectar, at times, during meditations…when time almost stands still, it is a blissful state and i am consciously aware of that moment. I long to revisit that experience again and again…it is so intense. May be this is the stuff which qualifies as true happiness. I am still working my way towards it !

 

What do you think ?  What have your experiences been ? I’m  really interested in knowing, please share !

DAY TWO QUOTE :

IMG_20160202_171728

IF YOU CAN BELIEVE IT, YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT.

Several great achievers have said that your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words,  your words become your actions, actions become habits, habits become your values and your values ultimately become your destiny.

 Thoughts have lot of power. Many universal laws are based on this premise, like the law of attraction and law of manifestation. When we worry, we use our immense power of thoughts and imagination negatively. WE imagine the worst, and as we imagine it, we invite it to us. When we are positive and excited about something, we imagine the best, we invite the good and the best into our life.

Winters bring along monotony in the nature and surroundings. The resplendent golden sunshine is sorely missed. Heart craves for the vibrant cheer of colourful spring.

I took this pic while decorating the venue for a kids’ birthday party. The different hues of the colourful balloons take me down memory lane to reminisce over memories of wonder filled childhood days.

Hope these colours make winters a little more tolerable 🙂

DAY 1 QUOTE :

tttuuuuvvvv

This quote means that one who has no values to stand for can fall for anything. This is so true. I have always believed in this. i have come across several instances in my life where the correctness of this saying was proved beyond doubt.

Our integrity is the most important aspect of our life. It is almost like a foundation,upon which the structure of our life is built. If we can stand true to our values, we can be true to our inner selves. We should stand strong for what we believe in. This helps in building strength of character.
