You have been a part of Women empowerment talks? According to you how far have you been successful in your purpose?
Yes, I have invested my heart into many women’s empowerment talks and wove the depth of that subject into my autobiography as well. I believe in the importance of the revival of the ancient women’s circles and a true understanding of the importance of respecting and nurturing the sacred feminine and sacred masculine principles in all human beings. This is a deep subject that we explore every year through a Womanhood Festival, a truly fantastic event by the women, for the women (www.womanhoodfestival.com) that a couple of us ladies started with utmost love and dedication.
We live in a time when the role of a woman becomes crucial for peace and stability. A woman is the spine of the family and a true anchor of peace. Without true honoring of women in any society, without recognition of the divine quality of the very principle of motherhood (which need not always be physical but can also be the attitude of selflessness and caring towards all who are in need of support and nurturing), there is no lasting peace and stability in our world. This is something I believe in and this is why I give such great importance to women’s empowerment at this point in time when the rusty structures of patriarchal society indeed are crumbling down. The role and value of the woman are now being redefined, not as per patriarchal society’s norms (through which women’s emancipation often turned into women’s masculinization), but by true values rooted in recognition of the sacred feminine principle.
How can beginners try to attain inner peace? According to you what is a peaceful state of mind? How can one know they are progressing in the right direction?
Witnessing is the first step. To beginners I recommend focusing on the central axis through breath (that is, breathing up and down the spine), especially if one can do that out in nature, leaning on a tree. This simple method is super powerful and leads to inner peace and great strength. A peaceful state of mind is easy to recognize by a drastic reduction of thoughts per second. Instead of fighting the mind to reduce the number of thoughts, one just needs to observe the thoughts and focus on the breath. However, when one performs any act of selfless service and then sits to meditate, it becomes evident just how amazing karma yoga truly is – as the heart expands, higher purpose brings inner fulfillment and unnecessary thoughts disappear. As always, love is the answer – and ultimately, only love is real. When our life is filled with unconditional love, we know we are progressing in the right direction.
What Pain management techniques women should follow in their daily life?
If we recognize pain as a great teacher, its higher meaning is revealed to us. All pain can be healed or transcended. I spoke on this topic in depth in my autobiography “Home for a Refugee“ which is available on Amazon and Kindle. I never use painkillers or any allopathic medicine because I do believe that shoving something under the carpet will not resolve anything. In specific terms with regards to pain management, aside from homeopathy, I choose energy work called Mai-Tri Method for deeper clearing of blockages that hide behind pain at a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual level.
What motivational quote do you live by?
“One of the highest signs of human refinement is total selflessness.
It takes selflessness to experience perpetual contentment.” – this is my favourite quote by Mohanji. It says everything. When we naturally start giving like a cup that overflows, we start living a life of fulfillment.
