…..'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'…..

Menorise [men-oh-rIse]; the condition of inculcation

The Higher Element is with us all.  At the most basic it can be understood as the topmost conscience which keeps us  on an even keel and aids our decisions and actions.  If we are integrated, congruent personalities we come to know it as an inner 'voice', a knowingness we cannot fully explain.  It is beyond our ego.

When we draw upon that Higher Element all generally goes well.  We reap rewards for our trust.

If, though, we over-ride it and start pandering only to our ego-selves, life gets hard.  Ups and downs, joys and sorrows, pain and fear creep in.  We get lost in the cycle of seeking one to relieve the other.  We forget the Higher Element.

Draw back.  Breath deep.  Be still.

Know the HE which is you only, nestled close and waiting for your call.  Trust yourself to be able to reach Your Self.


  1. Yesterday was spent at home as a day of contemplation. Following is amongst others that were written Down, which I shall share below.
    " This body is but a shell, a covering. Remarks and comments made by others, or even my own observations are based on looking at the outer covering, the shell, the body, hair, size, colour etc. I get affected by these because my ego does. Yet, I know that I am, the ever shinning, glowing, self effulgent, the Atman the self. So knowing this, let me let everything else pass. "

  2. The photo of the Parvati-Shivji Partner Peaks is beautiful, Yam. In North America we'd have called them "Twin Peaks" but, indeed, they are partners rather than twins.
    My mother, perhaps because she was a mother, or perhaps because she was so closely partnered with my father, had an inner voice which could be trusted to speak the truth, as long as she didn't spoil it by second-guessing herself or overanalyzing the truth she had spoken.
    I have had rare moments of knowing about other people, but so rare and so fleeting I cannot recall them except to know they happened.

  3. Hari OM
    Mahal - well done on the 'down time'! I commend your self review; that last pada would make a good affirmation. Knowing and being are two different things. Knowing it, be it. Make it ONE. xx

    Kay - Ohh Twin Peaks! That was a good show *> Ah, sounds like that Scottish 'feyness' was strong in your mother; but it does run away as soon as the mind starts trying to work it out!!! xx
