Wheel of Life – A Holistic Development Approach

Life is multifaceted. Development is sustainable only when it is holistic in nature.

But wait! What do we mean by the term Holistic Development’? It means that we want to develop the whole person, including, the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual being. Holistic development recognizes that we co-create and evolve in all the aspects of our life.

Recently I happen to visit a spiritual expo, where I came across a tool called “Wheel of Life” that enables one to make an overall assessment of satisfaction in the significant areas of one’s life. This tool allows to take a visual snapshot of life as it exists in the present moment and makes us realize the areas which require further development.

THE EIGHT ELEMENTS EXERCISE

The Wheel of Life includes all major areas of life: career, money, health, friends & family, romance, personal growth, fun & recreation and physical environment. The exercise is to assign a rating from one to five for each of these areas. A score of one indicates low ratings is the one that needs your priority at present.

The recent modification in my Goal Book involved me setting us goals in line with the  eight pillar of the “Wheel of Life” model. As an outcome, not only did I feel that I am focusing equally on all the critical aspects in my life, but also felt that I am developing the otherwise less-cared-for areas of life.

SUMMING UP

In order to choose the direction in our life, we need to know where we are standing at this moment of time. Wheel of Life tool gives us a whole picture of all the essential parameters for holistic development.

Vipassana

.

Locked in silence

I wonder

.

All touch, words and share

I surrender

.

Silent senses make way for

The hidden and the sealed

.

Under Vipassana, I prepare to heal

The unhealed

.

A long distance to span

For the wholeness

.

A long distance to span

For the Oneness!

Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India’s most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught in India more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills, i.e., an Art of Living.

Shadows Shed The Ugly Skin!

Plucked away, abandoned, called them ‘Sin’,
Discarded thoughts but hail from the same mental kin.
Releasing the repressed thoughts from the subconscious bin,
Life evolves when shadows shed the ugly skin!

~

Cacophony, the thoughts and their noisy din,
Dumped and forgotten, they lay suppressed emblazoning the grief within.
Ferocious wings behind the tiny fin,
Life evolves when shadows shed the ugly skin!

~

Life is but a balance of Yang and Yin,
To heal, I choose to accept the hidden malign.
Evolution is to fail, then learn and finally win,
Life evolves when shadows shed the ugly skin!
