On Friday 4th July 2014 Mr. Shree Kumar; experienced life-coach, renowned motivational speaker and master of EFTT, presented his seventh session at SHAFA HOME, Delhi. Today’s gathering was a free-for-all forum discussing a wide variety of topics such as the power of prayer, open-mindedness and emotional intelligence.The first half of the session involved our residents servicing their ‘inner TV’. To be very honest, many of us were a little perplexed as to how we were alike to a ‘metal picture box’, but we have always been reminded to keep an open mind in Mr. Shree’s sessions. A well functioning, healthy mind precipitates good, wholesome actions. We are like TV’s because we project a huge variety of different feelings and behaviours. Residents discussed how wholesome actions act as precursors for a successful and productive life. Our conversation progressed further; we explored the different components of our internal TV’s such as our antennae and tuning dials. These had been unused and have become rusty when we were in active addiction.
Armed with our past experiences we have an active choice to adjust our “living frequency” in accordance with negative or positive stimuli. The beauty of the present moment is ability to make free and independent choices. If we want our internal TV to show bright life-scene images, then we must open our receptivity to positive influences which will no doubt create the beauty we hope to see in life. It’s in our hands to make and shape it.
Mr. Shree then gave a short dialogue regarding personal responsibility. He emphatically reiterated to us how life is a succession of right decisions. Only we can differentiate between right and wrong actions in life and progress accordingly with a reliable value system. So what facilitates all this?...”Awareness and prayer”. When we open our eyes to reality and surrender ourselves to the guidance from a Higher Power, then we see the blockers and enablers to our progress. After all, “God helps those who help themselves”.
So back to the analogy of the TV set...when our mind receives mixed up signals, the screen is obviously going to emit ‘white noise’ and pixelated image distortions. If there is no clear input, there will inevitably be no clear output. That clear and focused image he held in his mind regarding his future from a young age lost its clarity in addiction time. Living a prosperous and fulfilling sober life is indeed possible. The person needs to be constantly aware of negative and positive influences...in turn the picture on his TV screen will be bright and visible.
The session drew to a close with our residents listening to an old Hawaiian prayer, a timeless classic called “Ho Opono Pono”. This charming prayer highlighted the importance of forgiveness. We need to exonerate ourselves if we want to move forward. Whatever had happened in our tumultuous past no longer needs to cast an ominous shadow over our lives today. Of course, the past will always remain in our memories, but when we truly forgive ourselves, then our internal floodgates are wide open to let in success.
All in all, this session was soothing and calmed our resident’s jangling nerves. It gave them reassurance that the future could be a fantastic if they took the personal responsibility to make it so. The key factor to the success of today’s session was Shree’s incorporation of the TV analogy in relation to the human psyche. This allowed our residents to exercise their mental visualisation and concentration skills, ensuring that they dynamically responded to the session. From all of us at SHAFA HOME, our continuing thanks and gratitude to Mr. Shree Kumar for these wonderfully insightful gems of knowledge.
