Reflection



 There were years when many aspects of my external life were progressing so well - career, higher education, relationship, financial growth, and stability. Not once, did I question or think about why things are going smoothly?

But in the past 1.5 years, when one challenge after another kept hitting, I have questioned every single time - "Why me? What did I do wrong? Why do I need to face this? Why is life being unfair to me?".

For a brief time, I searched for answers in astrology and thought a lot about karma and past decisions.

After a certain point, I realized that questioning, analyzing, or overthinking aren't helping and in fact, making things worse.

It is better to give rest to the intellectual, logical mind in such situations and accept and surrender to the Universe.

Every experience is a teacher who has come to teach us something.

Every challenge is a torch that shows us light on areas that need our attention.

Every interaction or information that comes our way is guiding us in a certain direction.

Reading philosophy / spiritual books helped me gain perspectives that I needed the most. 

Grateful to these books (and their authors) that came into my life in the last 6 months. Loved reading them all - totally immersed, feeling awed whenever a deeper question gets answered and when a shift in perspective happened effortlessly.

Which of these books did you find most intriguing, after reading my book reviews?
