Finding Our Authentic SelfIn today’s world, the most difficult and the most critical thing to achieve is self-transformation. No matter what some of  the new-age gurus may say, there is no short cut to self-transformation. It is a process that must necessarily involve a focused journey inwards where you get to know your fears and how you came to make them your own.

Getting to the source of your fears and discovering the real you is the only way that you can successfully move out of the “I am the victim of a bad destiny, bad childhood, bad environment…” trap and move towards knowing the authentic self. 

Thus begins yet another fascinating journey that Robin Sharma (of the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari fame) has mapped out for us in his latest book, Discover Your Destiny With The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari.

Birthday Party BluesIt is a great relief these days when my children’s birthdays, a mere three weeks apart, arrive in the summer and all I have to do is take them shopping a couple of times, or pay for a treat with their friends. Not too long ago, when they were little children, their birthdays were occasions for me to be totally stressed out, and for my husband and me to be at each other’s throats.

My husband felt that the birthdays could be an occasion for us to return the hospitality of many couples and families who had entertained us, as well as a chance to call the children of some really important contacts of his. I felt that the birthdays should be an occasion for my children to call their friends, period. Long before the actual dates, we would begin our lively skirmishes about the guest list, finally compromising with great difficulty on the actual day. I had the upper hand in relative terms because I was doing all the actual work at home, but my husband was also making many trips in the car with soft drinks, cake, dropping child guests home etc., and he would demand that his guests be accommodated even at the last possible minute.

A Very Special BondAs the evening shadows lengthened, Vasantha hastened her pace. Her father-in-law would be anxiously waiting for her.. A maddening panic would grip him till he espied her walking jauntily up the slope. It upset him considerably – her going out and working amidst all kinds of men.  But his son Kishore had remained adamant. “We need the extra income,” he had said.

The old man smiled warmly as she walked in. It was strange really, this affection he felt for his daughter-in-law.  Was it because she made him feel that he had still something of value to contribute in the shaping of their lives? Or was it her effervescence that always brightened up the place somehow? “So how was the day?” he began. “Super,” she answered and dashed off into the bathroom. When she returned he noticed that her nose looked pink. There was a hurt look at the corners of her mouth.

Fun within the FamilyWhen her brother-in-law was getting married, Pratibha was justifiably anxious. What would her new sister in law be like? Would she be a sport, who understood and shared her husband’s attachment to his brother, bhabhi, and other family members? Or would she be a possessive dragon determined to drag her husband away from ties that distracted him from her?

“When Keerti came and almost immediately began playing pranks on us, began showing her affection in different ways, I cannot tell you how relieved I was,” she says. “We have always been a very informal family, with the typical chhed-chhad, you know, the teasing etc. that happens between my brother-in-law, my sisters-in-law and me. I was afraid that this happy setting may be disturbed by a person with the wrong attitude.”

Coping with changes in MarriageThe one certain thing about life is its constant uncertainty. Change happens everywhere, in every relationship. Take marriage for instance. Once the hearts and roses phase in a marriage ends, watch what happens. The declarations of love and shower of compliments become far and few between.
There is less dedicated time for each other. And the effects of life’s transitions begin to make its influence felt slowly.

Few of us can know beforehand how we or the one we love will respond to changes, be it parenthood, economic stress, in-law problems, change in income and the like. As the result of such situational changes and the little known responses of each partner, even hitherto well matched pairs can find themselves at odds with each other over matters neither had considered previously. Thus a relationship that has apparently met the needs of both partners successfully, may cease to do so when circumstances change radically.
