Indeed, the sage who’s fully quenched rests at ease in every way; no sense desire adheres to him whose fires have cooled, deprived of fuel. All attachments have been severed, the heart’s been led away from pain; tranquil, he rests with utmost ease. The mind has found its way to peace.148

The external world is only a manifestation of the activities of the mind itself, and the mind grasps it as an external world simply because of its habit of discrimination and false-reasoning. The disciple must get into the habit of looking at things truthfully.156

|June 26 27 28||hi Carrie
Here’s a small letter for you
Your sample routine
10to15 soulful learning
17to19 learn something new musical instrument or some skill
20to 21 leisure
books books books whichever you like
|There are many flaws in me baby and I know some of them very well. I’m trying to improve myself but I’m not trying enough. Hope by the time you are able to read this I’m able to overcome few of them. I have lots of little learnings to share with you and share my true experiences that might enlighten you like for eg
Having a routine of things and planning a month ahead are few of them. ( from details about food clothing travelling even to a mall etc being always in ready to go mode even at home )
So long story short today I saw drishyam 2 movie, the hindi version is still to com . What i felt was family is very important and to have. It’s the unity that counts. May be because of this reason I really wish to have a hugeeeeee family who can trust each other and not judge each other and always ate there for each other no mater what. Keep praying to have such family where I can be the mom. I want to understand the new generation learn from them . Grow myself. Anyway I wish that you take all good things from us as parents and help us improve so we can be your teammate in everything that you all do.
One more aspect I wanted to share with you. It’s about the thought of whether moms should work . It’s all about choices. So.e moms have to make hard choice and prioritize what they want at that time and all so because each parent have only and only this vision to Gove better life ti their children and keeping this in mind everyone strives to be better and more capable. Hope you also become a caring capable person who others can look upto .
I pray that you become a spiritual soul and always think about others. Help them only when you are capable of and most importantly never forget that in life we need to strive for everything ourselves. No monetary nor materialistic thing should be the goal unless you have achieved it yourself. So make the best out of the waste and anything that may not a value to others but to you its got an eye. Even a smallest grain.
Lots of love

|Oct 27||Today I want to share with you two of my firm belief that might help you kids to understand when we are feeling low .||1. Always wish for others the things we wwant to wish for ourselves as those vibes shall come back to us the same way as we shower them to others. so always think we’ll for others . No matter what.
2. We all will not have everything now that we wish to have so how can we get it. This life that we have now, be grateful and hopeful at the same time by honest living. There will be lots of lots of greed around and temptations around to live us away from right and Ethical things to do but if we still do and live with our morals we shall definitely achieve what we truly wish for in some life.
