Worshipping God is all about attaining peace of mind and heart. All our life we blindly praise God but at some point, we will realize that we have God within us, we are God ourselves. Every one of us has an amazing talent that is regarded as a gift from God which we rejoice throughout our life. So, on this special occasion, I have some unique approaches to a happy mind and heart.
1. Visualize yourself as goddess Saraswati
I firmly believe in the power of visualization and it’s astonishing. This is a popular term being used nowadays and we are all familiar with that. Visualizing means making something visible or we can say imagining things that we hope to be real.
The perfect time to do this ritual is in the morning, in your fresh and clear mind. Just close your eyes, think of how goddess Saraswati carries herself with such poise and how bright her eyes are. Envision parts of her and try to engrave those traits in you. Might sound unrealistic but it will empower you and allow the light of hope and positivity to enter into you. It effortlessly opens the door to tranquility and gratification.
2. Try to teach someone
Someone might be your old grandparents, parents, elders, or juniors. You do not have to be an expert to educate. There is a misconception in our society that to teach, one should have immense knowledge about what he wants to coach. The person can be a student himself and teach like a genius. It all depends upon his desire and the amount of energy he wants to invest in it.
Likewise, anyone who has an urge to learn and is an avid learner can do it. So, let’s start this day by teaching someone about something we know of. As we all know, learning is worth it when in practice, I suggest everyone do the same and feel the difference.
3. Prepare food yourself and offer it to goddess Saraswati
Have you ever noticed the difference between simply buying food, and making an effort in its preparation? I am sure many of us have not even tried to analyze this procedure. But the absolute happiness and peace lie here. As effortless as it sounds, it is unsophisticated and yet effective if you give it a try.
The love and endeavor you put in that whole process are worth experiencing. Even if you hate cooking or think of it as time-consuming stuff, there are numerous choices of simpler foods. Therefore, hold on to your laziness for a moment and try it. After you put forward your prepared dish and join your hands together to pray, you will feel a sense of calm and fulfillment.
4. Organize a small event for donating books
We all have tons of course books on our shelf which are probably not being used now. It is all covered in dust and we do not care about it. Care in a sense we do not have time to brood over how we can manage those books sitting on the bookshelf aimlessly. The only option we can think of is vending it. Rather than selling it to the Vaiyass out there why not manage a small program with the involvement of friends. What else would be appreciably better than spending a day like this, isn’t it?
Furthermore, you can learn the art of giving from here on. We want to give but we do not know how or when to. Therefore, let’s just start applying the art of giving in our life from this particular day and see how we feel about ourselves, the people we help, and ultimately the power of teamwork.
5. Clean your community shrine/temple
Cleaning a temple sounds boring right? But it’s not as much tedious as it sounds when done combined with friends. Temples are the physical form of god which should be cleansed as we do to our body. We take shower, we make ourselves cozy to feel and look good. Similarly, it is the same for the shrines and temple as well. It needs to be rinsed and sanitized because it’s the only place where we put out complete faith and pray to God.
We can also associate the cleansing process with the purification of our soul. Want to know how? The answer is in your thoughts. Whatever you think and imagine will be reacted on your body which is a proven fact. So, think of you as the temple, conceptualize you flushing out all the negativities, stress, pressures, and burden that you have been carrying all around. I bet you, this works wonders from my personal experience.
Hence, these are some of the easy tasks you can do to spend your day on Saraswati Puja keeping aside the other regular ones.
It’s up to you: Do you want transformation, a change, or sit being lifeless and stagnant? If you choose to be the first then, implement these plans and experience, for life is all about ceaseless peace within you from the actions that you do.
