Nurture your soul
When a baby is in the womb, he/she is prepared for all good things. All the habits that would help society and humankind. But as soon as the baby comes to this world, he/she forgets all wisdom and nurture according to the current family. A family starts to nurture their child from day 1. It is correctly said that the family is the first school and the mother is the first teacher. Actually, the feelings of a mother are instilled in the baby from the day she conceives. That is why we tell a mother to read, listen and think of all those things that she wants to see in her child. Because we practice
Importance of nurturing the soul
In order to keep away from the negatives of this world, we need to keep our soul unaffected. And this is very difficult to achieve. The world is full of glitters and crimson which are hard to resist. We often find ourselves indebted by them. The wisdom starts fading unless we realize and make it strong. In the curiosity to know more, we forget the purpose of life. Everyone is here for a purpose and we search it after living some years. Some find it early in life while many frustrate thinking of what to do with their life.
When did my soul started nurturing?
The oldest values I remember are the ones given to me by my maternal grandmother. She used to live with me only. I have literally grown up with her as my mother was working at that time. In our initial years, we don’t understand habits but just follow them as a duty or the saying ‘ It is to be done like this only’. Gradually, we understand that every bit we have learnt through these years has meaning in our life. Later, I got married to a family that revived my old hidden values.
They further nurtured my character and I felt a wise difference. Wisdom comes to us with time but we need to be on the right track. I realised that there is much to achieve before I feel the God within but at least I know the purpose of my life now. Marriage is not just a bonding between a man and a woman but an institution of values (Sanskar).
Marriage is a Sanskar
When we are alone we think of ourselves only. Then after the spouse comes, we start thinking of him first and let the ego go in many cases. This further changes when children come to life. Now as a mother/ father, we think of our family first. This is how we are coming close to God. We have started thinking for others and gradually we will think of God too. Each phase of life nurtures our soul.
