Renoucing the self and connecting to the soul
Deepa N
published . 1 min read
Deuteronomy 4:29 But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul. Self and Soul are like two different perspectives I hold within myself. My self says I am child of my mom and my dad, but my Soul says I am a Child of God. My self has the pride and feels strong in flesh, but my soul feels humble and weak in spirit. My self is rebellious, but my soul is fearfully and wonderfully made. My self says I see and I have the light, but my souls says I am in the dark and I need Light. My self grows old and weary, but my soul is always a baby. My self people around me can see, but my soul only God can see. My self will taste the death, but the Soul tastes the salvation. When we begin our prayers, it is important that......

John 14:18 : I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. How true that God never leaves us alone, lost or comfortless. He is the loving caring father and He knows our needs and our Hearts pains and tears, He knows how to to Hold us safe in His arms when we are shaking or trembling. "Fear not I am with thee.", "I will hold you safe in the palms of my Hands", "I will not let your foot strike the stone.", "I have the plans to prosper you." "I have loved you with an everlasting love", "I am the Lord your God". How did He convince me of all these above statement? I was sitting in the church last sunday, my priest came to me as asked me "Do you want your feet washed in the Sacrament of washing feet", during the......
A fight with hopelessness, anxiety dream

Daniel 2:3 he said to them, "I have had a dream that troubles me and I want to know what it means." (NIV) Knowingly and unknowingly Anxiety dreams are an integral part of my being. I almost remember every difficult situation in my life, and the associated anxiety dream. The relationship between my dreams and me started in my early teens and it contitues till today. The project in which I was working on went through a massive shutdown and 100s of people were impacted due to it. It all happened all of a sudden within a span of a week, with no prior warning or information. It was a terrible shock to everyone around me. People are still recovering from the shock, it felt like a big natural calamity that took place around us, shattering the teams. Not sure if there was anything that......
Break your own heart

The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit (Psalms 34:18 - NIV). There are many times when we end up breaking our own hearts. I am sitting back here wondering, isn't there a better way to handle, isn't there a way that we don't break our hearts. I really doubt if there is a way out to manage without heart breaks. Today, me and my team are facing a difficult situation in our project and one of my teammates commented that may be he might end up drinking the whole weekend. Though he was joking, but in reality most of us have our own ways of handling our heart breaks. My trainer told me that he started gym when his heart broke. Every time we dont know how to handle the situation, our heart breaks. Ups and downs come in people's lives, with every......
To overcome also means to live with it

Jesus Christ says "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Most of the times when we think of overcoming a problem, we think of running away from it or we have a great desire that it should go away. The disadvantage of doing these is we are not growing any stronger in these situations. By running away or letting go we are just being the same. But instead when we learn to live with it, we are growing strong enough to overcome it. At a certain point we reach a stage when it no longer seems to be a problem. The learning to live with it is a hard part. I was all happy and healthy the previous day and today I got terribly sick, how do I learn to live with the sickness. My heart and mind is in so much agony and pain that it could......
Endless transformations in and around us

Transformation keeps this life and world around us super dynamic. The complexity of the transformation makes difficult to predict what is coming next. It makes it seem like things are random, adhoc, unplanned and uncontrolled. But on the contrary by closely watching the transformation, understanding the pattern and the logic behind it, it helps human being awe about God. The real mastery of the one who created all these to such a perfection. Interestingly, every baby born on the earth, comes out of the womb with very minimal or no strength or wisdom or feelings. But after the baby comes into the world it slowly develops the muscle strength to move its hand, feet etc.,. It develop senses like vision, speach, feeling, expression. It goes to the school and gets into the world learns to......
Viewers choice seems to be playing a bigger role in our lives

I recently got into the habit of watching a serial in TV. I read the review of it on the web and also I watch it on YouTube. As I was following the reviews, I realized that they are introducing the twists in the story based on what the viewers prefer to watch. I usually love reading novels, and the best thing about them is, it speaks what the author thinks and how he plans or percieves his characters to be. But on the contrary when I look into these TV serials, the writer is to be changing the story with twists on a day to day basis to keep the viewers continue to watch the program. Thinking on the same lines, I was wondering if we are deciding our lives based on viewers choices. What I wear, How I look, what I want to eat, whom I want to marry, how I want to spend my vacation. For most......
Breathe when in stress

During my Personal weight training of session in Gym, I was doing my squats, and my thigh muscles were literally paining and burning, I closed my eyes to hold and bear my pain. I heard my trainer say "Breathe". I tried to breathe, initially when I tried, it was hard for me to breathe, my mind was only focussed on the pain in my muscles and i was unable to relax. But slowly i started to breathe, and in the subsequent sessions I realized it really helps. This whole week, every morning as I commute to work from NJ to NY, everytime I think of the issues and challenges that have to face at work that day. I just hear only one word, "Breathe". And as I start breathing, I realized that the fear and thoughts, which were blocking my mind immediatly fades away. And I remember the......
Spirit, vision, wisdom, will and stamina

Most of the times we feel that we are procrastinating our actions. In reality there are some reasons why procrastination is valid. First reason that comes to my mind when I procrastinate is when I am not ready to that activity. I dont think I have all I need to complete that action successfully. I dont want to fall, I dont know if I will have the required strength and support to get another oppurtunity. Procastination gives us the time to think and plan better. But we cannot keep procrastinating forever, till we are so surrounded by fear that we feel its okay even if I fail. Using the time between the calling and the time when we do the action, is the time we get to prepare and equip our being with all we need. It is like preparing of the trek, from the time I know I am going to trek,......
The spirit that unites us to be a body

published . 1 min read
Oneness and unity is an interesting charecteristic of the Spirit. Where there is Spirit, there is unity, but the absence of the Spirit brings in conflicts and diversity. The unity that comes from the Spirit shows in our own Body, then this earth, then the solar system, then this whole universe, which stands as one single body. From a small micro organism to the big large universe there is unity in every entity that God has made. The unity of Spirit is not restrictied to just within a body, when a man and woman get united in Spirit they become a family, and when members of church unite they become the Body of Church, when we unite with Christ in spirit we become Body of Christ. The unity that is brought by the Spirit has no barrier. It can overcome all physical barriers and reach out to......
