Paradigm Sift

By Rajgopal Nidamboor


Life, as also career, sifts and surfs over matter like slow, measured waves — a form of synchronous (r)evolution. It works best when you are keyed to excellence, not just perfection. This is part of the space-time continuum. It tells us that we are as special and independent as someone who you admire, but also a part of the vast extent called life. The whole idea connects to awareness of our being, existence and thinking processes. In other words, you are as good as your talented colleague — and, also endowed with certain abilities that the other person may not have and vice versa. The common mistake we make is we are not converging on our strengths; rather, we are merely trying ever so desperately to live the other person’s life. This won’t work; and, even if it does, it will not take us anywhere, except into the disappointing abyss of our psyche.

Is there a way, a mode to feeling fulfilled and contented — or, living a determined life with our talent, while holding our head high? There is — if only we aim and cultivate the wholeness of our being and relate to our mind and body, heart, spirit and soul. This is what that ‘ups’ the totality of our innate self and our ability to exploring our own inner resources to the full — a key quality that can turn things around from the inside out. You’d call it your own divine-ordained opportunity — to participate in your own perimeter of activity and enterprise and also live well in a remarkable and unimagined manner, on your own terms, without fear, or prejudice, and with a purpose that propels you towards achievement, success and fulfilment.
