TWO PRACTICAL WAYS TO MAINTAIN YOUR MENTAL POISE AND PEACE.
These suggestions are from me, a creative writer and not from a professional therapist. But since these methods are working for me to a significant extent, I thought I would share the same with my readers. However, I strongly feel that any seeker (of mental poise, of course) should also see for herself what best works for her or him.
1)   ANCHOR YOUR MIND
Easily the most rewarding but also difficult thing to achieve! But there are two practical tools which may help you with this.

A PERSONAL MANTRA FOR FREQUENT, SILENT CHANTING- SHORT AND SWEET.
and
AN AUTO-SUGGESTION PHRASE- AGAIN FOR SILENT REPETITION.
You may hand pick any mantra from among your favorites, so long you find it comforting. As for the auto suggestion phrase, it has to be relevant to your requirement, like, “I am confident” or “I am calm and contented.”
2)MAINTAIN EQUILIBRIUM

IN RELATIONSHIPS:
I would say boldly that this is one of the most important requirements for anyone and everyone-to consciously and with great awareness, juggle and maintain delicate balance in all relationships-son, father, brother, husband and other equally in work-related ones. You should not be perceived to tilt unduly in any direction, except in an objective manner. Though there are still bound to be misunderstandings and problems- in the long run, it helps, when people who matter to you know you as a fair and unprejudiced person.

IN TIME MANAGEMENT:
Needless to say,any balancing in relationship will work only when we
allocate useful time for it. So, you also need to juggle between careers and hobbies on one side, and family time on the other.

LINGUA-WOES

A Tamil gentleman nearly got clobbered when he appreciated the food served for lunch at his Telugu friend’s place.

The poor guy innocently said ‘Pramadham’ which means ‘Excellent’ in Tamil, but unfortunately means ‘Danger’ in Telugu!

‘Tamasha’ means ‘light stuff’, ‘Comedy’ etc in Malayalam, but beware if you use it flippantly with the Hindi speaking people.

Indiscreet use of this word- which means a street dance or something in Hindi- is not received kindly by them.

The simple word ‘Avasar’- which also is a Sanskrit root word- means ‘Occasion’ in Hindi; ‘Avasaram’ means ‘Requirement’ in Telugu; ‘Opportunity’ in Malayalam and ‘Hurry’ in Tamil!

There must of course be several such examples in the various languages ‘spooken’ in our delightful India.




RIGHT WRONG

Seeing her eyes glow in excitement,
Obviously though she has it all wrong,
I rush to grab the correction opportunity,

Till I have another look at the gleam in her eyes.

Hell, I think, let me be wrong a hundred times over,
If only to preserve that glorious joy,

Rather than prove her wrong
And watch her enthusiasm wither.

TEACHINGS FROM THE ETERNAL SONG, THE BHAGVAD GITA

THE MANY WAYS TO PRAY TO THE LORD

Lord Krishna is infinitely merciful.

He accepts your prayers whatever be your way, or whomsoever you worship. Like the waters of all rivers leading to the Ocean, all prayers flow to Him alone. ( Rig Veda)

He says that you may, if you can, fix your mind and intellect on him and be always in His contemplation. That is the path of Knowledge or Jnana Yoga.

However, if you find it difficult, you may choose the path of Yoga practice. In this the mind can be trained to meditate on Him and be brought back again and again when it gets distracted. This is the path of Raja Yoga.

If you find the Yoga path cumbersome, you may resort to ritualistic worship as authorized by the sacred texts. This is the path of Karma Yoga. If your mind is not on rituals, you can take refuge in him, leading a self controlled life.

Then there is the Bhakti path, the path of total devotion and surrender to the Lord. Even here, the Lord says, you need not make elaborate offerings- A l…
