so i looked at the mirror and saw the mystic clouds..

When you have time, you think about life. A few of my friends who have time like me are doing that along with me. We talk on the phone, we meet up, we spend hours talking about past and present lives. Surprising, these are successful women who are looking for meaning, for purposes, seeking clarity through confusions. And yes, everybody wants to get down to some volunteering work for the unfortunate or underprivileged.

So everybody has had some help in life. Be it going to a shrink, a tarot reader, astrologer, there is this uncertainly that seems to be pushing the younger generation to look for a solution. I suggested becoming a shrink or a psychologist is the career of the future. It's where the money is!

One friend took a course in counselling. So after the course she volunteered on weekends as a counsellor for victims of abuse, sometimes children. While she was doling out sessions in anger management and therapy for these victims of circumstances, she was finding the symptoms familiar. She slowly realised all these symptoms were present in her! That was that! She landed up at the shrink herself.

I wait my fate.

Well if you are on this path then the self has to be very strong. Its not easy being a tarot reader or a counselor ( ask me !! :) ) and also one has to know where the buck stops with oneself.
You cannot be the solution to everything and yes its no use beating up oneself as well.

And well though I did not do any course and it comes natural to me, still every client is a lesson and the happiness one gets to see them live again.. through whatever little effort or support you give is beyond peace and happiness... :)

most celebs are doin it too.
why? havin earned money n fame, you realize theres gotta be more to life than a flashy car, a penthouse and a decent job. thats when you look for a cause.. something you feel strongly about.. rape victims/ illiteracy/ alcohol abuse.. and try to help people out.
it takes a long journey to realize what life's really about :)
