Today It is more about those young boys & girls who are to pick their careers & are thinking of what would keep them satisfied & prospering for the next 10-20 years of their life. It is of course an impossible task. There is no pundit or mechanism in this world which can predict what is going to make someone happy for the rest of your life, especially when you are enjoying laying on couch for the whole day & getting a thrill out of doing nothing.
Don’t worry or feel bad! You or for that matter no one knows what’s coming next. Now especially after these corona days no one can predict how life will be a year after even. I will not be surprised if BC will be redefined as Before Corona era.
However you must remind yourself that you are not getting younger. If you don’t start taking the time to pursue your dreams now, you might find yourself at the end of your life with nothing to show for it except the scores of games you played or count of likes on your instagram pictures or the list of programs still to watch on Netflix.
Don’t let your present blessedness be your worst enemy.
But there is a guaranteed solution if you know what makes you happy now ( hope you know this 😂). Start doing it. It is said that if you continually pursue some purposeful things that you enjoy doing whether for a job or hobby, it will make the journey fantastic & bring you success sooner or later.
Let you get yourself occupied immediately now from home to begin with as an online fundraiser for PM CARE, write blogs, record some audio books, write mails to corona patients, provide some online training to your peers or underprivileged, try joining United Nations for making a global difference or learn stock markets by doing mock transactions. I mean volunteer yourself to just see what will make you a bit more happy & occupied meaningfully. After the corona is over & you are released remember to continue doing such volunteer jobs in field.
Remember that you have to get your hands dirty if you have to achieve something in life. Let you begin to gain some hands-on experience & read everything about your role models or about those who are most successful in your dream career before really pursuing your dreams. Start riding your donkey instead of waiting for unicorn to arrive. You already know what to do. Let you begin now, take some steps today, tomorrow & then everyday.
I must remind you most sincerely that you are a beautiful, magnificent, miraculous & perfect manifestation of God. Believe me that you are sufficient & enough to do something now which will surely help you achieve your big goals & dreams, whatever they may be. Nearly all men & women have achieved success sooner or later. You also will.
Let you inspire yourself to live a life aligned with your goals & constantly experience happiness, fulfillment & meaning.
In this time of widespread stress, let you maintain your peace, health & focus on those things that will make your life more meaningful, significant & worthwhile. Stay Being The Person Of Action Always! 💐💐
This is known to almost everyone that your thoughts & words have tremendous amount of power. Infact they shape your maximum beliefs, drive your behaviors & ultimately create your world. Each word create an emotional responses & energetic reactions by default. Right words when spoken in the right way bring you more acceptance, appreciation, fortunes & obviously make you sound confident, relatable & trustworthy. But when you speak wrong words or when your words doesn’t support your body language or spoken in wrong way bring you losses, conflicts, displeasures & generally cost you like hell sometimes.
I recommend that you record your words, tone, language & gestures for a week & then play it back to yourself. I guarantee you that will be surprised at what you hear & see.
Spend a few minutes with a narcissistic person or a chronic complainer who uses all sorts of negative words & you’ll immediately feel your personal energy bottoms out. That applies to everyone including you also 😉. In my opinion you can influence outcomes greatly by how you choose to interact with yourself, others & situations.
Your words are not only a vehicle for expressing & sharing your thoughts with others but to yourself also. Your thoughts & words have the power to make you your own worst enemy ( or ally 😊). Choose each of them wisely & consciously.
How you speak to yourself directly influences how you see things in life & world. If your internal self-talk is negative, chances are that your external experiences will be negative as well.
Please find out that how many times a day do you say “I hate my looks,” “I’m an a**hole,” “I am a failure” or “I hate my world” without thinking that these words bring negative energy into your vibration & affect you on a physical level. Believe me when you repeat these day & night, your brain shapes a false self-image of you, your world & start working accordingly.
Researchers estimate that you can think about 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts & speak approximately 7000 words a day. Now imagine if 80% of these are negative about yourself or your world than can you think how badly you are sabotaging your life without even realizing it 🤔.
But question is are you conscious of the words you speak, thoughts that you read & expose yourself to knowingly or unknowingly? Let you begin to pay attention to the words you use & the words you speak not only with others but also with yourself. Because you make every decision, action & resolution based on these words & thoughts that you hear from yourself.
Let you at least stop speaking from today to merely unload an ego-driven thought & never utter a single word with negative emotion like frustration or anger. Let you also stop saying everything that drains energies, make you or others feel sad, mad, or bad. Believe you me, with a renewed perspective, you stand a much better chance of bringing good into your life.
Let you start making your internal vocabulary more positive to improve your external experiences & quality of your life.
For God sake start acknowledging how powerful, sufficient & blessed you are from today itself. Let you begin to honor, love & respect yourself more from now than ever. Let me remind you once again that you are a part & parcel of this universe & you should be mindful always to be a little more intelligent, kinder, gentler, smarter & softer in your words, deeds & reactions with yourself & your world.
Stay kind with your words & always use language to empower 💐💐.
Today I read one of the Rumi’s quote “The lion is most handsome when looking for food” which prompted me to write about all those people who are self-absorbed, self-obsessed & do not treat themselves lesser than the Marvel Heros (my son, Aashish made me watch a movie yesterday) for a moment even. I am talking about people to whom their arrogance, grandiosity & entitlement is always larger than the life.
I am sure you will agree that this world is full of these people who claim themselves to be superheros but in real they are self centered, self-righteous & narcissist in a way. They are those people who perceive themselves as being the nicest on the planet, completely faultless & always believe that they deserve special treatment & that others do not deserve 🤔. They seek approval & appreciation from everyone around every minute even for their shitty things 🤣.
They become mad & vengeful whenever their perceived superior status is threatened. They will always paint a picture of themselves as being the victim or innocent in all aspects. These people will always believe them to be superior to others & when they are in conflict with the world, they will invariably perceive the conflict as the world’s fault only. These people will never feel guilty or remorseful even when they have done something ridiculously wrong. They will never offer genuine apology & if at all they have to give one, then it will be only hollow & transactional.
These self-acclaimed great people tends to seek out connections mostly for their high status only i.e. to feel more accomplished, socially prominent, well-to- do & well-connected. They will listen to you & step out of their spotlight only when they hope to gain something extraordinary from listening to you 😂.
These people have a tendency to erode self-esteem of everyone around & will do it with such an art that you start feeling that it is you who is letting them down.
Let me remind all my egomaniac friends that the extreme self-centered attitude is going to become source of suffering for you & your world one day.
Let you be more & more present in this moment, instead of always seeking a more exciting moment. Let you practice applauding for others & feeling genuinely happy for them instead of being competitive always. Let you have a deep compassion for everyone around & also understand their struggles to be safe, seen, heard & celebrated.
Let you, in real, become the light you have been desperately seeking & create a glow for all others to bask in. Let your world feel better, healed, joyful & admired in your company. Stay Being Your Higher Self! 💐💐
All over the world, coaches & great souls have been advising continuously to disengage, detach & to take a break from the routines because they believe that magic in not doing anything for some time has the real power to change just about everything.
Now that you have been unplugged, let you breathe, restore, recharge & reset yourself to your factory settings 🤔. Remember that this is exactly what you do with your wireless router, when it stop working. I like everyone get frustrated when it does not function the way it should because I am not that technical person (even after doing engineering in electronics & telecommunication way back in 90s, I am not a practising engineer these days 😉).
When I am told by the technician that just switch off the router for few seconds & restart it, I was amazed to see it working perfectly fine. Without doing anything, just by restarting, a device can come to working again. Isn’t it great! Yes it is.
This is a learning for all of us. Let this unplug, reset & halt of everything for a few days prove to be a pretty good solution for whatever was not working in your life & world. Let you be able to restore yourself to your factory default settings which for most of us tends to be beautiful, strong, blessed, able, creative, connected & hopeful 👑.
In addition to your restoration & reinstatement, I pray for your updated & upgraded version after this lockdown is over 🤣. Let all the negative energy which was trying to bring you down earlier come to an end forever. The dark thoughts, uncertainties, overthinking & the doubts completely exit your mind for always. Let the clarity replace confusion, hope replace fear & blessings fill your life again. Let your Angeles guide your path & help you to make the right decisions & choices so that you can go with full throttle & crush your goals & live your life to the fullest. Let God grant you peace, love, understanding & continue to protect you & your beloved ones from this virus & all other evil forces. Stay Working On Reinstalling Your Greater Self! 💐💐
Let you set your intentions to heal within & outside of yourself. You have good time now to heal yourself & your world 😉. Let you take some time to consider what it is you really want for your life in the near future. How do you want to feel about yourself & your your world at the end of this lock down? Can you use some time to find your real passions, strengths, gifts & how can you put all of them to better use? Let you get in touch with the real you, your higher self & your angels to align with your real purposes.
Let you choose to work on healing yourself from the inside out this time by going deeper to get at the root of the problem rather than only treating the symptoms all the time 🤒. I mean your weight is not the main issue, it is not walking enough & constantly overeating. You need to go to the core 🙏. Let you remind yourself once again that you can achieve anything you want if you can heal your core, your energy, your mind, body & spirit. Let your good efforts increase your chances of achieving your goals.
I am not at all saying that everything you were doing before this compulsory stay at home period were fifty things, but all that I am saying is that you have ignored many important things which matters to you the most. Tell me how can you take care of anyone else or do a good job at work or be a good friend/partner or achieve something big in your life, if any part of your being is unhealthy in any way? I repeat, let you begin to heal & rebuild yourself now by adopting some better habits, hobbies, routines & lifestyles.
Let you also resolve to phase-out your detrimental behaviours, toxicity, resentment, complaining attitude, limiting beliefs & negative voices to improve yourself overall & to lead a life you deserve.
I wish you all the best & pray that all your attempts of improving yourself & your world be more successful now than ever. Stay Blessed! 💐💐
Light is considered as a symbol of auspiciousness, prosperity & abundance in my Hindu religion. It obviously brings energy, positive vibrations & brightness with it & removes the darkness irrespective of where it is & how small or big it is – making it possible to see things clearly, not only for the person who torched it but for everyone around.
Lamp (Deepak) is a part of all traditions & cultures around the world in general & India in particular. We lit a lamp to bow down to knowledge as greatest forms of wealth. In this part of world, Light is worshiped as God himself. We light the lamp before every auspicious event & every day usually & chant mantra (prayers) while lightening these lamps. This prayer is also known as Deep Vandana.
We believe that light emanating from the ghee (clarified butter) lamp removes darkness, ignorance & evil. The light represents knowledge which shows us the way out of our uncertainties, problems, fears, tensions & unhappiness. The light of a ghee lamp is believed to bring in prosperity (knowledge or wisdom is the greatest form of wealth).
Slokas for lighting the lamp (Deep jyoti/Vandana mantra). You may choose to chant these mantras loudly when lighting the Diyas!
The accurate meaning of the first mantra is: “I fold my hands before the light (God’s Grace) that brings prosperity, auspiciousness, good health, abundance of wealth & destruction of the enemy’s intellect (darkness)“.
The literal meaning of the second mantra is: “I fold my hands before the lord, the maintainer of this creation, in the form of this light. I adore this light, which destroys all the pains resulting from my omissions & commissions.”
May God Continue to Protect & Bless you, your Family & Your World Abundantly!
I wish to share with you a realisation that such disasters & your adversaries make you love yourself & your world more. You learn to remain more resilient, calm, cool & patient with whatever you have. You learn to be thankful for all the things that you take for granted 🤗. Such an out of control situation teach you that poise is one of the basic prerequisite to live your life successfully. Let you stop yourself from beginning to imagine the worst-case scenario. Instead, let go of negative thoughts & refocus your mind on something positive, no matter how small. Remind yourself that this crisis is temporary & you can use these long hours at home to gain more clarity by staying the course & channeling your energy in a positive direction. To better cope with these long days, to feel more good & to become the best of yourself, you can choose to develop a new ritual, a new habit or a new hobby. Let you prepare yourself for living a life that’s filled with your passion & purpose. Remember it is time to access & direct your strengths to the highest good of your beloved ones & obviously yourself. Stay Gaining & Sharing Knowledge, Wisdom & Insights! 💐💐
रामनवमी के महापर्व की हार्दिक शुभकामनाएँ।
महान ऋषि वाल्मीकि की ‘रामायण’ में राम एक रूप में आये हैं, तो उन्हीं के लिखे ‘योगवसिष्ठ’ में दूसरे रूप में। ‘कम्ब रामायणम’ में वह दक्षिण भारतीय जनमानस को भावविभोर कर देते हैं, तो श्री तुलसीदास जी के रामचरितमानस तक आते-आते वो उत्तर भारत में घर-घर का बड़ा और आज्ञाकारी बेटा, आदर्श राजा और सौम्य पति बन जाते हैं। दरसल ‘राम’ भारतीय परंपरा में एक बहुत ही प्यारा नाम है। वह ब्रह्मवादियों का ब्रह्म है। निर्गुणवादी संतों का आत्मराम है। ईश्वरवादियों का ईश्वर है। अवतारवादियों का अवतार है। राम कबीर और तुलसी दोनों के इष्ट हैं। कबीर कहते हैं कहीं जाने की आवश्यकता नहीं है। वह अविनाशी तो हृदय-सरोवर में ही विद्यमान है। गुरु के तेज से नानक साहेब भी बोलते हैं की जो अंदर बोल रहा है वो कोई और नहीं, वही (राम) है। ये वो नाम है जो वैदिक साहित्य में एक रूप में आया है, तो बौद्ध जातक कथाओं में किसी दूसरे रूप में। लेकिन मुझे आज के संदर्भ में जो सबसे सटीक लगता है वो है विनोबा भावे का कथन। उन्होंने एक बार कहा था- भगवान किसी न किसी गुण या विचार के रूप में अवतार लेता है और उन गुणों या विचारों को ही हम मूर्त रूप दे देते हैं। इसीलिए शायद ये भी कहा जाता है कि भगवान से बड़ा उनका नाम है। हम अपनी प्रार्थनाओं में एक प्रकार से उनके सत्य, प्रेम, करुणा, साहस और अन्य सदगुणों का चिन्तन ही तो करते हैं। इन गुणों का सिर्फ गुणगान नही करना होता है बल्कि इन्हें अपने जीवन मे धारण भी करना होता है।
हम सब के आराध्य श्री राम के प्रागट्य दिवस पर जो हरि (राम) हमारे ह्रदय में सांस ले रहे हैं आइये उंनको और अधिक पोषित करें, बढ़ावा दें और प्रकट करें।
प्रभु श्री राम से प्रार्थना है की आपको सपरिवार उत्तम स्वास्थ्य और परम् सौभाग्य की जल्द ही प्राप्ति हो।
जय श्री राम।
I may be wrong in saying this but what if all this nonsense is just to get us to slow down a bit? I mean what if it is to stop producing the chemicals or just to push the whole world inside to let the earth breathe a little more without all the extra pollution, threat, menace & noise that we knowingly cause every second. Isn’t it time for the world leaders & for all of us to take a step back & realize that how our foolishness, greed & selfish actions impact earth & one another. As I said yesterday, it is also the opportunity to become fully aware of the reality that no one in this world is as significant or in control as they think they are 🤣. A virus can come through from nowhere & can wipe us all in few minutes, days or months. Therefore use this time to count everything that you have for which you should be grateful to your God, Parents, Family, Friends, Nature & This earth.
I don’t know whether you will agree or not, but in my opinion we seriously have everything we need for complete peace & total happiness right now. But we all do not realize this in real sense. However this doesn’t fully apply to people who don’t have enough to survive, i.e. food, shelter & clean water, but believe me you are so blessed & I am sure you are living a better life than billions of people worldwide. Remind yourself once again that you have what you need.
I repeat you are so blessed right now & should make the most of this one life God has given you. Remind yourself that God doesn’t want you to do as much as you can, as quick as you can, as perfect as possible. Not at all. Instead He wants you to do something continuously which can elevate you to your highest calling & transform the world around you.
In fact it is the time to reawaken the dreams, passions, your calling that you haven’t acted on in years. Let all the complacency, stupid comfort zones & chosen miseries become intolerable. Let you stop putting your calling on the shelf & immediately begin to find or creating the work that is meaningful, purposeful & profitable for you & your world. From today itself, let you start discovering a life that is full of divine purpose, magnificence, meaning & glory.
After all this, some action ideas:
If you wish to improve yourself a little more & want to become a better person capable of achieving your aspirations then please see yourself for who you are, start releasing negative thoughts & anger, accept your own responsibilities, become a good listener & learner, be more polite & start maintaining a certain level of gentleness & civility, begin to respect others, Set SMART goals for yourself, be a part of your community & remember to show kindness & compassion to those around you 🙏🙏.
While I am praying for your safety, comfort, happiness & peace during these trying times, I want you to remember that everything will be okay tonight, tomorrow or in the coming weeks. Stay Blessed & Beautiful! Gdmng.
