... drops of Bliss!!

There are several moments with a favourite song playing, when I automatically 'slip' into a different state - often teary, very alert and desire less, complete - am sure we all have enjoyed such ... drops of Bliss!!

Several times, I wake up after a sound nap, feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. How does one describe this experience, apart from stating the effect it had. Am sure we all look forward to such .. drops of Bliss!!

Having walked many miles with friends & relations, I treasure many fine moments. They are complete, fulfilling, evergreen and nourishing within. Am sure we all have enjoyed such...drops of Bliss!!

There are times, when I do eagerly & desperately long for these... drops of Bliss!!

...tick of approval !

To enjoy a certain degree of comfort within, we do need feedback, affirmation, approval from fellow humans, for certain length of time at least. Gradually you try to figure out the basic measures, essentially to validate your own steps. Am finding suggestions from ancient texts pretty helpful in this process. The three leading pointers include:

Parental Debt [ Pitri Rin in Sanskrit] : Given that we get initial nature, nurture, bonding in parental setting, its desirable to repay the best one can! My personal orientation has been to be mindful of elders’ needs and accommodate in the best possible way. Further translation of it has meant – providing a “secure” environment for kids! At this cross section, with all humility, am pleased to tick this element.

Teachers’ Debt [Guru Rin in Sanskrit] is our obligation towards those who helped our learning along the way! It has been my rigorous effort to maintain good rapport with all that have facilitated learning in any setting. In addition, keen effort has been made to pass on my own understanding to younger generation! It’s almost a tick!

Nature’s’ Debt [Dev Rin in Sanskrit] is our obligation towards Nature, Divine forces. The suggested means include charity. I am keenly aware of this dimension and the need to decipher my own nature. Among many boons I have enjoyed, Friendship certainly is one. My orientation towards friends remains one of mutual acceptance, little or no expectation, no regrets, easy bonding and sharing – preferably a good laugh as well! It is my earnest effort to nurture and sustain this dimension all the way for. .. Tick of approval!

...Zero Defect!

There has been a lot of corporate effort for several decades to streamline production processes towards Zero Defect!... for automobiles.. to mobiles!

This is to explore the concept at fundamental level of Life design ... perhaps it has Zero Defect too!

We do strive for different things at any cross section. These "things" do give us satisfaction, at least, for some time. Gradually, we figure out, most important things are not "things". Essentially its our ability and determination to get to the stage of experiencing ..Zero Defect!

Given that there is a lot of uncertainty about life, events, people, I can only do my best at any cross section. The passage becomes a lot easier and enjoyable, if the Faith settles within that Life, with all its manifestations,has .. Zero Defect!
