Retrospection 201722, Dec, 2017, by Seema Bhatnagar
I am extremely delighted and pleased to share the eventful 2017. Another fantastic and glorious year of my life is reaching its’ end.
Feeling fortunate enough that Divine has granted one more year to such a worthless and insignificant being like me. Not just a year, but a year filled with exciting and memorable moments.
The year 2017 has indeed been a fantastic and fabulous year for me. It has enriched me to a level which I never imagined for myself. I started this year based on my previous year’s thought – leading life with total randomness and spontaneity.
Events, people, trips, activities kept on happening and I kept on welcoming them without any resistance.
The main theme that turned out for the year was, “Travel”. Have made exciting trips and got myself drenched in variety of experiences, starting from adventure to mystical. Each experience has added a new high in me.
White water rafting, paragliding, chota char dham yatra have been the main highlights of the year.
The Chota Char Dham or Himalayan Sacred Walks, trip was more of a pilgrimage than just a trip. This gave me transforming experiences that lifted me to an incredible height of inner space. This experience will remain with me eternally.
Money and Profession
When it comes to making money with professional life coaching or any other money making pursuit, I have taken a stand of not participating in a rat race anymore. It might sound shocking and absolutely dumb for a logical and economics driven mind, but being a queer, this is how I enjoy the richness of life every day.
Instead of juggling with a constant fear of deadline, timelines I simply enjoy the freedom of owning every moment of my life. I simply do whatever I like to do, sometimes if I don’t like doing anything I simply do nothing and enjoy the richness present in a moment.
Supporting my stand on life, this year too, I kept myself completely away from any noise that carries a potential to drain energy. This enabled me to focus more intensely on mediation and yoga. Writing a blog is not a noise, this is something that I enjoy, so I would continue writing.
Despite travelling with brutal schedules, haven’t missed my daily practice of yoga and meditation even for a day. Glad to share that I have reached to a desired level of daily silence for 16 hours a day. This has been possible because I have removed lot of noise from my life. It actually feels very peaceful and doesn’t feel tired at all for the whole day.
Health and Diet
When it comes to health, have enjoyed a perfect health, free from any pain or even a mild illness. Able to follow strict regimen of my food habits and could discipline myself to have only two vegetarian meals a day with one day of fasting in a weak.
Have developed aversion to many things which I used to enjoy till last year. Like, eating out is no more my preference, now I find my satvik homemade food far tastier than what is available outside.
On friendships, fortunate enough to enjoy the warmth of my existing ones, in addition, have added few more. The new ones happened just effortlessly and they too exude warmth.
Vision for 2018
As such, I do not have any goal in particular to reach anywhere in life, it is just that, the more speed I attain, the more I can experience in life. Therefore, for the next year 2018, like the previous year, no plans, no goals and no resolutions, will simply go by the randomness and spontaneity of life and will enjoy and learn as life unfolds itself in million different ways.
When I look through the window to the outside world, I find people are suffering in almost every aspect of life, be it health, career, money or relationships. Against that backdrop, feeling myself extremely fortunate and blessed for living with abundance in all aspect of life. Sincerely, I have no regrets and complaints from life or from anybody.
Feeling blessed and grateful to Divine for ensuring me basic survival needs of shelter, food and clothing, it is only that which is enabling me to start this adventure of exploring the higher dimensions of life.
In this adventure of exploring life the only thing I need is - the grace of Divine and my Guru. This is something which I enjoy every moment. Honestly, in front of that everything else seems meaningless, tasteless and faded.
All this and much more in life would not have been possible without the grace of Divine and my venerable Sadhguru.
Wishing the whole humanity a life full of abundance and love. My grand and splendid New Year wishes to each and every being on this planet Earth. May everyone feels inspired and aspired enough to live the best of potential.
Happy New Year 2018.
You are your Habits.
Get introduced to self.
