Mind your body…

Your body is the most sophisticated, ever active and self healing vehicle for your life. It just needs good quality air, water and food to survive in its life time. It also follows a cycle of growing , sustaining and disintegration. If you help your body in its cycles, it tends to last longer and stay in good condition. If you stress it during its cycles, it disintegrates faster. Quality and adequate Sleep, physical activity keeps it going well.

Emotions of our mind has an effect on the body also. The more stress you generate in your mind, the more negative your thought process is manifests itself in the cellular level of your body. A healthy and positive mind can assist in even healing your body. People who are generally positive, find joy in little moments, enjoy the present moments tend to be healthier till the body dies.


Principles and Processes in a religion…

Most religion have embedded guiding principles in it to ensure a harmonious society of human beings. Many of these principles across religions are simple good habits, known to all but difficult to practice.

To assist people to follow these principles, processes were born. These can be in the form of dos and donts, rituals, culture etc. These processes were creates at different times and auitable for those times and never updated to suit current environment.

This rigidity of following those sometimes outdated processes has been the source of conflict right thorugh history.

The power leaders of a religion mandate that nothing is changed. The fear of the followers does not allow them to update the processes.

Wish all religions go through a process reengineering continuosly to keep up with times. This will solve many problems the world is facing today.

Wisdom from my Dad’s life…

Be a human first….religion, country, language, education, status are just convinience factors. Love and respect everyone as a fellow human being first.

Be joyful….spread joy, share joy, laugh, smile and be happy in all circumstances.

Practice contentment…being contented is the key to a happy and peaceful life. Live within your means always.

Help the poor and needy….they need it more than rich people. Rich gifting another rich is not help.

Hard work pays…..diligent, honest and sincere work always gives you the best returns.

Live to give…every day is an oppurtunity to help someone. Can be a smile, an advice or anything you have excess of.

Health is wealth…Healthy body nurtures a healthy mind. A health mind leads to spiritual joy.


Introspection for the good…

Many people do not have the courage to accept thier mistakes. This ensures that they do not learn from their mistakes and instead learn to find ways to defend thier mistakes. Some of them do realize thier mistakes but cannot admit it in the open. Some of them try to counter attack with a new topic so that they can hide and distract themselves from thier mistakes. Some people do not have the capability yet to even realize thier mistakes. Some, instead on focusing on thier mistake decide thier actions based on who has told them.

A humble and growing person will analyse thier mistakes when pointed out, identify if they can change something and take action to improve themselves for thier future. This is true in sports, skill buidling, relationships, business or politics. They earn the respect of others when they are able to do so. They get labelled as a strong personality who is willing to improve and not blocked by thier ego to improve. Anyone younger or older, richer or poorer, less educated or more educated than you can be a source of feedback from you to improve. Learning is life long if you are open to it.


Fake information is a slow poison…

The world is reaching a peak in overload of information. Information is being manipulated by many to satisfy their ego needs rather than passing useful truths. Ego is being used for self gratification and truth is becoming less important.

In this wave, anyhing you hear or see is not trustworthy from anyone. When trust is questionable in your mind, no information is useful anymore. One has to create his own filters to uncover the truth.

This is the challenge of the future. How does everyone digest or reject information being thrown at you by anyone,  including near and dear ones.

Its obvious that this confusion is a good environment for people who want to misuse it for thier own benefits and cause harm to people who are vulnerable.

You and your mind is what you have and you have to ensure that it does not get biased by wrongly misused communication. Silent listening and unbiased judgement is far more useful than joining the wrong mode of the corrupted communication wave, which we are witnessing all around us.


Emotions are created by you..

It is quite trasnparent  that all emotions which you experience have originated from yourself. Your choice of reacting to various situations brings out your emotional experiences which include both positive and negative emotions. In a similar situation, different people react differently to it as their reactions has been fine tuned over time, based on their learnings and experiences in thier lives.

When one looks at a situation in an unbiased way, one can come up with a variety of emotions as a reaction to it. It’s quite easy for all to be happy in positive situations but takes a lot of maturity and patience to accept a negative situation and still not feel sad.

Anyone who has reasonable  control on his emotions can leverage it to be calm and peaceful in all situations. This is a greatest skill to have in one’s life and this needs to be nurtured to perfection. Any intense negative emotions has a stress effect on your body, mind and your joyful  spirit of life.


Sense of belonging…

Human beings crave for a sense of belonging. They find it difficult to be independent for their happiness. One creates circles of interdependencies as one goes along in life. Circles may include family, relatives, friends, schoolmates, collegemates, workmates,  neighbourhood, city, state, country, continent, world. The two way interactions with these circles defne thier sense of belonging and so thier happiness. Each of these circles are fiercely protected and sadly by even choosing the wrong ways. These attitude clouds the judgement, creates blind following and creates barriers to have healthy interaction with other people who have created their own non overlapping circles in thier life. Try and define yourself as a citizen of the universe to start with and you will find all living and non living beings become a part of your family to be loved , appreciated and will remain a source of happiness for you. 


Friends are gifts in your life…

We grow in our lives with friends from childhood onwards. Friends pass through your life span in different ways. Some come briefly, some stay long  and some come and go but each of these friendships linger in your memories forever. Strangers trasnforms to  become friends for no reason many times.

The power of friendship lies in its unconditional nature. Both friends feel good and there is no expectations or commitments. Its seem like a connect beyond the mundane give and take interactions one mostly goes through in life. 

Friends are a part of everyones life. Even the person you feel is not friendly would have some close friends. Friendship happens and is nurtured without any conditions. One should feel blessed to have friends and one should cherish and nurture them as they are gifts given to you for your life.

Hapoy Friendship Day….


Universal citizenship…

Its free and available to you. All you have to do is to become one. You are born in this unverse and are a part of this universe. When you feel so, there is a sense of belonging to everything around you. You feel connected and have the capacity to love all living beings and things around you. You break away from all barriers like your neighbourhood, city, state, country, language, religion etc. You mostly bask in love or gratitude, which are two of of most powerful emotions one can have for feeling happy. Every person across all barriers become a source of happiness for you. You tend to appreciate good people and try and assist not so good people to become good. Your charector and attitude rejects hate, greed, jealousy, ego, anger, revenge and embraces only positive words, thoughts and actions as a way of life. It’s simple to cultivate and an effective way to feel good always.


Present moments…

When one wakes up from sleep, you and your mind starts to dictate how you will go through the moments available to you during the day. Every moment is an opportunity to energise yourself through positive thoughts and in creating a calm and happy series of moments. This certainly enhances the health of your body, creates calmness in your mind and a feeling a bliss in your soul. However, its easier said than done. One spends time in the past focusing on problems faced rather than happy moments experienced. One looks at future as a potential problem list which may have to be faced rather than painting a happy future. With these two driving thoughts, the present moments which one has, becomes a past moment of accumulated negativity. Enjoy the past moments of joy and attract positive thoughts of your future to have a wonderful present moment all the time or focus on whatever you are doing in the present with full joy, concentration and involvement that you dont need to think of your past nor your future in this present moment. 


Snuggles as a source of life skills..

Our pet dog Snuggles turned 10 years today. So much to learn about life skills from him. Sharing a few of them here. 

Unconditional love to all attracts unconditional love from all around you. He exudes this every day.

Living in the present moment happily makes your life journey abudantly pleasent. Every moment every day is a new day to be started fresh and joyful. Don’t dwell too much on the past and let the future come on its own till it becomes a present moment.

Sharing your love and affection to all around you without any differenciation makes one’s life beautiful. No one feels lesser loved by him. He finds a graceful balance with everyone.

Eat and drink as per your needs and not by greed and pride. Though he loves to share a small bit from anyone of us but eats his food purely for hunger. Leaves food alone if it exceeds his hunger however tasty he may find.

Has an amazing sense of energy around him. He senses people’s emotions and health. He befriends people based on our interactions with them. Does not harm anyone but always yearns to love and be loved.

His only lovable gadgets and toys are people, birds and nature. All others like tv, mobiles computers are totally ignored.

Thanks Snuggles for coming into our lives. You have been a common source of love for our family, many friends and relatives who have interacted with you.
