Low Mind, High Morality - My fav concept of living life

Maan neeva maat uchi (Punjabiਮਨ ਨੀਵਾਂ ਮੱਤ ਉੱਚੀ) is a quotation from the third part of the Sikh Ardas.

This phrase underlines an underlying and highly important concept in Sikhism; the first term "Maan Neeva" literally means "mind low" and highlights the concept of living ones life in humility and a Sikh must discard his or her ego and live a life of humbleness without vanity and snobbishness.

The second term "Maat Uchi" means "morality high"; this second term highlights the concept of living a life which adheres to high moral values and high spiritual principles. So here, the Sikh is asked to live a life of high moral standards with discipline, self-control and virtues endowed; refraining from lowly deeds and keeping away from sinful actions and thoughts.

The above is a language quoted from

I wanted to write about this today because when we are looking for a way to live life of truth, sometimes we don't know who to turn to for that advice

I know in my family, not a lot of people live in this manner so examples are far and few

For me, I have been looking for a path for a while, and have found it in Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 

Everyday, I learn something new and write about it here - because it literally gets written on my consciousness

Then I trust that anyone who needs to hear these messages will hear it somehow

Everyday, I will have the opportunity to make a choice from a space of "High Morality" and not from my lowly mind.

Our conscious minds, that make about 3% of the decisions daily cannot make higher level choices unless we direct it to.

The other 97% of the decision making comes from the subconscious mind - things like digestion, breathing - happens without our conscious decision making

After all, we, the consciousness is in control

Because we (the consciousness) are in control, we need to direct our minds on how to act

That's where the above knowledge comes in handy.

Lets keep our minds desires low and keep morality high



Tapping into the "FLOW"

Being in FLOW means tapping into an energy when I am thinking about possibilitie

Where I can do anything

Where fear is not present

Only Faith is

Where I get a lot of ideas

And have the energy to act on those too

Where by body feels light

And energized at the same time

Where I can smile

Truly be content, satisfied


Ask yourself, when did you feel this way last time?

And what were you doing at the time that it created a "FLOW" feeling?

Ask yourself.

Then write, let ideas flow

Then committ to generating at least this feeling once in a day

Where pure contentment, satisfaction is there

for you to experience

to have

and to be with

Till next time, stay in FLOW.




The positive side of struggling

Struggle - make one's way with difficulty/have difficulty handling or coping with/engage in conflict

The above is the definition from

Every one has struggled at one point or the other

It is often through struggles, we know our real worth

If we have a commitment to make things work, then no matter the struggles, we need to stick through it

The positive side of struggling is that we have to become a different person in order to deal with it

Struggle and still carry on with the faith that I will make it through

Leaders become out of struggle

When I think of the word struggle, few leaders pop into my mind

Les Brown, one of the very famous motivational speaker comes to mind. I heard about his story once. He talked about he committed he was to his art of public speaking and business building that he had to sleep in his office on days end because he had no where to live. 

He took shower at the office showers (facility you use after using an onsite company gym) for weeks before someone reported him to security

Another person that comes to mind from my own family is my grandma. She was widowed at 20 years old with 5 kids. She had no education, no real skill set to raise a family of 5. But somehow she made it through and lived to be 80 years old.

She did it, and Les Brown did it too.

So can we.

We just have to hold on to this belief that "I must never give up"

I must hold on to the faith instead and say "I will make it through" or "I will figure out a way"

Because if we quit on the struggle, we quit on ourselves

Then we will never really know what would have happened if I would have kept up with it

Because we never really let the struggle show us what we are made up of!

You now naturally know and are aware of the unlimited potential that lies in front of you to start experiencing who you really are.



How do deal with the nasty feeling of Jealousy?

Jealousy is a feeling

It makes you feel bad

Like you are not enough, you dont know enough, you dont have enough

basically lack mentality

It makes you forget what is good and great about your life

and Instead you "zoom in" on only what really sucks in your life

and all your energy goes into "counting other people's blessings" and comparing it to "what sucks in your life"

Jealousy is just that - a thought process where you forget about the good in your life and starts "zooming in" on the parts of other people

We have all been jealous, I certainly have been

Especially when I am scrolling through Facebook

I was today

Therefore I am writing about it, to remind myself

Then I pulled out my journal and took a moment to write about what I am grateful for?

I wrote 20 things

Then I went for a walk with my puppy and my lovely hubby

Then I thought about how I get to work from home

Then I thought about how beautiful the weather is today

My family, friends who care so much about me.

And life seemed rosy again

All is well. and It was always well.

Stay Rosy <3

Till Next Time
