Always keep your mind active. An idle mind is the devil's workshop.
God bless you
There is a very strong connection of the soul to the mind. Many consciousness practices, confirm you can manifest your reality. While I am sure there is some logic in this theory, I believe karmic retribution in addition to the positive vibes you attract together can work to build the environment you want to live in. The mind and soul have been challenged to cope with captivity since 2020 March. While some people have adjusted to this captive live, many have perished.
This morning while driving my kid to school, we were discussing Aryan Khan's present predicament. 'Rumours are the children of truth', only Aryan would know the real story. The rest is all here say. Why would such a popular individual's child stray? Is it common for celebrity kids to stray?
The quote I shared today has been proven over and over again. When your mind is occupied with work, chores, and positive feelings towards your environment, the probability of straying reduces. How many middle class family children stray vs the rich and powerful. Most of the so called rich and powerful kids do not get time to spend with parents. The parents are busy earning, leaving the kids to either grow up themselves, or in the care of grand parents or house help. The parents do not have time to share their values and learning with the kids.
Is doing drugs wrong? Is having an addiction wrong? I do not believe there is an absolute answer to these questions. I personally believe try everything in life, but always stay in control. If you loose control, there is no turning around. Smoking, drinking, weed, hash, women, men, the list is never ending. It is very important to be able to say NO. If people around you do not respect your 'NO', they are not friends or well wishers.
I have had the privilege of observing many women in my environment. While most of these women keep themselves busy with professional work and home chores, many have absolutely nothing to do. The same is true for growing kids. I have learnt and observed the those with enough on their individual plates to keep them busy all day, do not have time to ponder. While most of those who have nothing to do, develop an idle mind. This idle mind is dangerous. It should be avoided, to refrain from straying.
A lesson for most of the families who have abundant resources. Stay grounded, keep your children grounded. It is imperative to keep your children busy. Sports is probably the best and easiest way to keep your kids engaged. Spend some time with your kids regularly. You can earn all the money in the world, what you can never earn is time. Once it is gone, nothing in the world can bring it back.
I enjoy the NETFLIX series called 'LUCIFER'. I believe this action thriller is packed with many lessons. If the DEVIL can learn his purpose in life with all the power and resources in the universe, I do not believe it is impossible for our kids to learn. Providing them with our presence is probably the most valuable environment we can provide.
We have already reached a stage of INFINITE knowledge and information, thanks to the presence of the internet. While there are some theories around humanity approaching an age of abundance, as parents we must get our children to face hardships in their day-to-day lives. If you provide a bed of roses to your child, they will never be prepared for a possible tough future.
Stay away from talking or thinking about what others are doing. Focus on what you want from life. Spend time with family. And always keep your mind engaged.
