Get a Life

Hungry Mind, Thirsty Spirit
 I cannot recollect the last time i did an introspection. There have been changes in my thoughts and the way i interpret... i feel a completely different person. How dumb and laid back i was! Lived a life without an aim. But there was a serious turning point in my life of which i have no track when it happened. I wish i had the vision much earlier... if it would have been in my school days, I would have been much successful than i am now!

British prime minister Benjamin Disraeli once said "You can never go higher than your thinking." So true! My thoughts are more disclosed. I am more receptive. Feel pity for myself as i lived a quater of my life in illusions.

Our mind takes 60000 thoughts each day and we only accept a 10k of those. While in this process we fill our minds with the filth that others have passed into us. Also there are inputs from unexpected people with some genius proficient ideas that we would just reject having a doubt on their capabilitites.  An open mind knows which thought to accept. Unbiased.

The age old method "Meditation" helps cleanse our mind. It helps to develop patience, be clear in thoughts and later in our actions. It feels super duper to know exaclty what you are doing, where you want to be and how are you leading yourself to your aim. The journey is so beautiful that you would not like to worry about the destination. Do a reclamation of your thoughts/soul frequently and enjoy the journey called life.

Being Critical and Comparative about my ride

I don't want to sound too critical.. But am just wondering if any1 out there in city of Mumbai, face the menace of this black rushing cockroach... the auto rickshaw. (Spare me if I did!)
No doubt, its the quickest was to reach in the nick of the time to your office..your home..a function.. when there is no public transport! The problem is.. there are more issues to travelling by an auto then there are advantages!
First of all, its next to impossible to get an empty auto in the city of mumbai and if you still manage to plead a driver with your innocent looks you should think thats an angel hailed from heaven on a god-forbid road.

Kshamapna: Forgiveness

The 8days Jain festival called "Paryushan" has a very thoughtful message to give. It inspires you to forgive and forget the past grievances. "Michhami Dukkadam" is what you tell everyone, not only humans but every single soul in the universe. It is a prakrit phrase meaning 'to be forgiven' or 'may all evil that has been done be forgiven'.

Why do we forgive some one?
1. Because he can be harmful
2. Because you owe him
3. Because of some religious reason like God says we must forgive and forget
4. Because that is what you call as dignity
There can be many reasons. Be it. But the calmness you feel after forgiving wholeheartedly is inexpressible. Like we bath daily... our soul should also be cleaned at-least on a yearly basis!

As humans we tend to have some or the other feel of grievances, hatred, enmity, jealousy etc towards others. Slowly & gradually this ill feelings give rise to feelings of revenge which ultimately is a destructive process &…

Strong Mental Health

 Believe in yourselfWe usually have certain beliefs about ourselves that are developed during our childhood. Like I am lazy to finish any task, I am an angry person, I am only good to people for certain amount of time etc. These are the statements usually by my key person, my guardian or my mom. I do feel offended when she says so but I accept it like a blind faith.If I try to say good things about myself and prove with incidences I can regain faith in my efforts, in myself. That will make me HAPPY.Daily Gratification is a good habit I will cultivate. It will surely make me feel special and thankful for what i have.Achieving my goals will elevate my faith in myself. Dont Compare yourselfWe find ourselves comparing with our friends…
