Day 6: Beautiful thoughts build a beautiful soul.
The fourth face of intention is “Beauty” the creative, kind and loving force can be nothing but beautiful.Truth exists in the creation of everything and as John Keats writes in his poem, Ode on Grecian Urn beauty and truth are one and the same thing. As you become receptive to seeing and feeling beauty all around you, you become attuned to the creative “Power of Intention” in the universe including yourself.
Life is nothing but beautiful
Day 7: Where attention goes energy flows
The 5th face of ‘Intention’ is “Expansion”, you will notice where ever you put your intention, it will occupy a place in your mind/ thoughts. What you focus on has a tendency to grow in life. So today if you are brooding over your unhappy life situation, an unstable bank balance, a broken relationship or your ill health the fact is it will trigger a chain of similar thoughts leading to worry and unhappiness. This will weaken your connection with source and power of intention.
So put your attention to what you want in life rather than, what you do not want, for happiness to manifest in your life. Being grateful helps you to put the passive force of materialization into action. You do not have to tell people how grateful you are instead it is most important to feel this gratitude deep within yourself.
Words that are not in sync with feelings have very less significance, this is the reason we need to regularly do the MCKS Twin Hearts meditation and feel the prayer. This is also why Law of Attraction, Affirmations etc do not work because what you think and what you say are not in alignment.
These 21 days of group meditation is a beautiful opportunity to sow the seeds of Gratitude within your heart for it to bloom with new possibilities in 2016.
Lots of Love!
Day 5: Love makes the world go round
The quality that supports, enhances, nurtures and encourages all life in the universe can be nothing but LOVE. Creativity and kindness can exist only in an environment of love have you ever wondered why this warm fuzzy feeling can make you feel on top of the world? It is because love provides security, harmony and an environment of well being. All of us crave for that feeling in our life which is our true nature.
LOVE is the third face of intention.When you do what you do not love , you experience yourself to be out of alignment with the field of intention and it attracts dissatisfaction. However when you love what you do and do what you love, life is a blessing.
In the meditation of MCKS Twin Hearts ,the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi there is a beautiful line “Where there is hatred let me sow love” Love is a powerful high vibration/energy that can dissolve all lower emotions anger, hatred, jealousy. Just like a single candle can absorb the darkness of a room. Love is the most powerful and still the most unknown energy in the world,
Exercise: Look in the mirror , smile at this person and say I LOVE YOU straight in the eyes. Say this till the warm fuzzy feeling sinks in this is the person who needs your love the most.

When ever I work on an idea of an event / blog I have experienced this compelling force within me which will have its way through me in situations when I myself would not have imagined. New Beginnings 2016 is one of them. I am at the verge of starting my new journey in life as a mother and due this month with 80% probability of giving all of you the good news during the event. So the day you miss the daily update be prepared for the good news.
So What is intention?
“In the Universe there is an immeasurable, indescribable force which Shamans call intent, and absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos is attached to intent by a connecting link.” – Carlos Castaneda (World Renowned Author)
Intention is driven by inspiration the calling of our spirit and if we align ourselves in such a way that we can hear and feel this calling we will be compelled in the direction of our life purpose.
How can we connect with this field of infinite possibilities?
Disconnecting with our EGO Self
All of us have access to this immeasurable force of intention to make our self the greatest versions of our self but only few of us live an extraordinary life? While most of us are just managing our way through life? Is there a way to reconnect to this energy? The one thing that disconnects us from intention is EGO lets have a look at the common ego beliefs and if you can identify with any of these it is time to readjust your thinking.
1. I AM what I have. My possessions define me.
2. I AM what I do. My achievements define me.
3. I AM what others think of me. My reputation defines me.
4. I AM separate from everyone. My physical appearance and presence defines me
5. I AM separate from all that is missing in my life.
6. I AM separate from God/Source.
When you dis identify with EGO or the idea of self (Physical) you can seek intention and maximize your potential.

A child is born with overflowing ecstasy , I am sure you have seen a child smiling by oneself, passing smiles to strangers, playing with her own hands and legs. Not bothered about who is observing, how is she dressed or looks. The child just enjoys her being. By seeing or being with the child there is a sense of bliss a sense of joy which not many can resist. However as we grow this ecstasy should actually grow manifolds just like our height and weight 😛 but somehow as we grow we lose that treasure of ecstasy somewhere on our path to adulthood. It is then we start our unending search for happiness. We start living our lives in Pursuit of Happiness.
This Pursuit for Happiness starts when you start identifying with your sense of self ,with your body, your looks, money, status your needs followed by a constant comparison and contrast outside of us.More than 10% of the population is depressed and has no sense of direction in life. They are all just trying to live and be happy. Some of you are happy with your addictions of smoke, alcohol, money and relationships as this gives happiness for the time being. Once it is over you look for the next trigger to make you happy and life just continues.
Sometimes our happiness or struggle for being happy becomes driven by self that we forget how adversely it can impact people around us. It has become very important for us to realize that life was given not to just come and live to fulfill our own physical, emotional or mental desires it is meant to live this life to your full potential. It is about being a better version of yourself everyday in your life.
Lately we started the “This Diwali Make A Wish” event to pay gratitude to strangers considering them as angels of manifestation/source/God, the gift was given specially to strangers because most of us are comfortable to share with people we know. This was also done to avoid people at the receiving end to feel obligated to return this gift. The event is a huge success please find the link to the album for the pictures of the participants with their Gratitude Angels.
When we extend our sense of self ; by dis identifying with the thought “this is me this is not me” we will have no need to introduce people to what is right or what is not, what is morality , what is love. This is because once you start understanding the concept of oneness there is nothing as me and nothing as you. This realization does not happen for many of us over lifetimes. We have observed this in history and even today people are fighting over religions, land. money and some in the name of their happiness.As they have a strong sense of ‘What is Me and What is not Me’
As per my teacher Master Choa Kok Sui, service is an active meditation. In this event we used MCKS Twin Hearts Meditation and Great Invocation (A World Prayer) to bless Earth for happiness and peace. Master Choa’s words It is in Giving we Receive was the foundation of the event. When we increase the radius of our sense of self and reach out to people; sharing our selves , time, money, effort through service we are actually opening our heart (Chakra) for a larger love affair; A LOVE AFFAIR WITH LIFE.
So many of the participants were feeling that warmth, the extreme sense of satisfaction, love and gratitude while meeting and greeting these Gratitude Angels. For some of them this was their first encounter with the Love Affair with Life. I could see that immense joy on the faces and the child like spirit with which they wanted to go again and gift people as they were loving that wonderful feeling. These feelings can never be explained , the only way is to experience it.
So get involved with life, get involved with people and situations that bring joy around. Life is a beautiful love affair why restrict it to a few people? Whether people reciprocate or they do not, it should not matter because love is not about them it is all about who you are from within. Connect with that limitless source of ecstasy that lies within the child in you.
May all your wishes materialize rapidly and properly. So Be it.
Lots of Love – Sargam
Our children are the future face of humanity if we want to see a better world we will have to create it now. no amount of criticism can change the world it is only our investment in our present generation that can bring the Golden Age on Planet Earth. Although this article is written for Mindful Parenting of the new generation this is highly applicable to our own inner children our emotional selves which have been neglected and deprived of love and affection. Our own emotional selves which have been harmed more by not what was done but what was not done to us due to emotional neglect. probably we all can learn how we can start healing our own selves when we are interacting with our own children. A child will help you deal with your own shadow aspect so be open and receptive to the mutual learning.
Children are like soft clay when a baby is in the mother’s womb its energy field are so soft and receptive that it picks up every thought form and emotion that the mother and the surrounding projects. A child although is a child but is a reincarnation it had a definite nature and tendencies in his or her previous lifetime but when the transition happens from physical to different worlds these tendencies become latent. When the child reincarnates it again travel from different worlds (higher mental. lower mental , astral , etheric) to the physical world and carries all the seeds good and bad of the tendencies developed in the previous lifetime.
Now the thought forms which are nothing but packets of energy when are project in the surroundings of the baby it energizes the tendencies within the baby. For example if a parent is highly abusive and angry and if the child in his previous lifetime had similar tendencies they will now be energized. How ever if the parents and mother are extremely loving and appreciative the child will have those tendencies energized. So you can see how the parents and the surroundings of the baby can help in shaping a child’s nature.
The physical body of a child is like plastic readily impressible, his astral and mental vehicles are far more so. They thrill in response to every vibration which they encounter, and are eagerly receptive with regard to all influences, whether good or evil, which emanate from those around them. And they resemble the physical body also in this other characteristic — that though in early youth they are so susceptible and so easily moulded, they very soon set and stiffen and acquire definite habits, which when once firmly established can be altered only with great difficulty.
When the bad tendencies do not get enough energy they are weeded out. When we realize this, we see at once the extreme importance of the surroundings in which a child passes his earliest years, and the heavy responsibility which rests upon every parent to see that the conditions of the child’s development are as good as they can be made.
Think of all the friends whom you know so well, and try to imagine what splendid specimens of humanity they would be if all their good qualities were enormously intensified, and all the less estimable features absolutely weeded out of their characters.
TIPS for Mindful Parenting
1.Strengthen the Good
This is extremely important if we focus on the goodness or good qualities of the child it magnifies. These good qualities will be so dominant that the lower nature or tendencies will not get energy to surface. However if a parent allows himself to cherish feelings of anger or jealousy, of envy or avarice, of selfishness or pride, even though he may never give them outward expression, the vibrations which he thereby causes in his own desire/ astral-body are assuredly acting all the while upon the plastic astral body of his child, tuning its vibrations to the same key, awakening into activity any tendencies of these bad qualities that may have been brought over from his past life, and setting up in him also the same set of bad habits, which when they have once become definitely formed will be exceedingly difficult to correct. And this is exactly what is being done in the case of most of the children whom we see around us.
2.Watch your Own Thoughts
A we understand our thoughts energize the seeds (good tendencies/habits) or weeds (bad tendencies/habits) in a child it is very important for parents to be very watchful of what they think and how they behave. For example if a parent has an anxious and fussy nature — is always fidgeting about trifles, and worrying his children and himself about matters which are really quite unimportant. If he could but observe clairvoyantly the utter unrest and discomfort which he thus produces in his aura, and could further see how these vibrations introduce quite unnecessary agitation and irritation into the susceptible auras of the children, it would no longer be surprised at their occasional outbursts of petulance or nervous excitability, and would realize that in such a case it is often far more to blame than they. What they should contemplate and set before the child as the object, is a restful, unruffled spirit — the peace which passes all understanding — the perfect calm which comes from the confidence that all will at last be well.
It is further obvious that the training of the parents’ character which is necessitated by these considerations is in every respect a splendid one, and that in thus helping on the evolution of their children they also benefit themselves to an extent which is absolutely incalculable, for the thoughts which at first have been summoned by conscious effort for the sake of the child will soon become natural and habitual, and will in time form the background of the parents’ entire life.
The influence of a teacher for good or for bad over his pupils is one that cannot readily be measured, and (exactly as before) it depends not only upon what he says or what he does, but even more upon what he thinks.
The children are young minds upon which a teacher’s thoughts and words are reflected they take it up and magnify and strengthen it, and thus it influences others in turn and becomes a tradition handed down from one generation of children to another. If a teacher reflects unwholesome thoughts and actions the tradition becomes unhappy and bad however if love and faith is transmitted a happy and good tradition may be set up almost as easily.
There is only one way in which either parent or teacher can really obtain effective influence over a child and draw out all the best that is in him — and that is by winning his love and confidence. It is true that obedience may be extorted and discipline preserved by inspiring fear, but rules enforced by such a method are kept only so long as he who imposes them (or someone representing him) is present, and are invariably broken when there is no fear of detection; the child keeps them because he must, and not because he wishes to do so.
But if on the other hand, his affection has been invoked, his will at once ranges itself on the side of the rule; he wishes to keep it, because he knows that in breaking it he would cause sorrow to one whom he loves; and if only this feeling be strong enough, it will enable him to rise superior to all temptation, and the rule will be binding no matter who may be present or absent. Thus the object is attained not only much more thoroughly, but also much more easily and pleasantly both for teacher and pupil, and all the best side of the child’s nature is called into activity, instead of all the worst. Instead of rousing the child’s will into sullen and persistent opposition, the teacher arrays it on his own side in the contest against distractions or temptations; and thus results are achieved which could never be approached on the other system.
4. Physical Training and Purity
Physical training of the child is a matter of the greatest importance, and that a strong, pure, healthy body is necessary for the full expression of the developing soul within. We need to teach them from the first the exceeding importance of physical purity, so that they may regard the daily bath just as much an integral part of his life as the daily food. See to it that the body is not abused with meat, alcohol or tobacco; see to it that there is always plenty of sunlight, of fresh air and lots of exercise. So that they grow up pure, healthy and happy.
