Keys

Nowadays everyone is aware about spiritual practices and paths. But knowing is not enough! We still get stuck and look for answers (I'm no exception). The two essential ascepts that we are usually missing are:
1. Gratitude.
2. Surrender with full faith.
3. Having a vision.

On spiritual path these three are important keys which can unlock any lock that you desire. It's not easy to follow either. Gratitude is a must. A friend of mine usually quotes "With gratitude, grace flows!". Thanking the mighty for the smallest of thing is what makes us aware and in the moment. Surrendering to the ultimate (whomever you follow) and having complete faith is difficult. Generally we question the ways and situations of our life. But we need to remind ourselves that whatever is happening is planned and taken care for. When these two keys are dealt with vision automatically comes in the picture. The ultimate himself/herself shows us what to do and which way to follow. Completely surrender and let the magic take care of everything in your lives. In my view the mighty knows better than us. But don't take liberty by saying everything is taken care of! He/she can show you the path but you are the only one who needs to walk on it.

Free will

"The choice is yours!" This simple statement can change your thought process like never before. Why do I say so? In this statement there are two important aspects. Firstly surrendering to ultimate reality (that you believe in) and secondly taking responsibility of your actions. The irony is we don't follow or accept both of them. If these two are taken care of, positively automatically follows. As Sartre said perform any action but take full responsibility of it.
Likewise the situations of our lives needs to accepted and taken full responsibility of. For instance, if you're diabetic it's totally your wish to eat sweets or not. I know quoting the view with simple example is easy but atleast take a step to become aware of these aspects. Try surrendering and accepting your own flaws and greatness. See how the perception changes and situations automatically becomes positive and brimming with joy.
