Guilt, shame and doubt - Fears galore!

Hello all, Hope all of you had a great week where you were able to obliterate the fears you had to take the next step towards your path. Last week we discussed the general topic of fear, and how it affects us very much from a subconscious and emotional level to take bold steps towards our life. Today let us go a bit deeper and see how fear can knock on our doors in many disguises. But with everything, the underlying major theme is the fear. It can come as guilt, shame, or as doubts and hold us prisoners in its iron grip. Hope all of you had been following the United States news nowadays.

Hello all, Namaste! Hope all of you had a great week where you took another step towards your goal in life. Last week we discussed the consequence of sometimes caught between deluge and inferno . In that, we discussed a person should find a way to come out of it. Then another question arises. Does a soul or a person really have a free will? Or are our fate and destiny fully written in stone? As I mentioned before I also answer questions on the platform Quora as 'Jayasree Padmanabhan' (my name). In that a few times, I have been asked whether a soul really has a free will or is everything totally predetermined. So, thought today let us take a stab at the domain of free will and how much a person can have his/her free will. Just before proceeding, most of the things I write here are many times from my intuition and inner voice. So, I cannot many times prove a point as they come from a place of knowing or experience. So, what is free will? According to Wikipedia, 'free wil
