Unbiased awareness leads to solutions…


All of us have a tendency to judge ourselves with a positive bias as it just feels good. Any problem we may have is never ours but should be easily blamed on others. Any weakness we have can be easily justified. It’s an unconditional and blind support for ourselves which feeds our false ego. Anyone pointing out a problem in you has to be because the other person is judging with a bias and wrongly. While this keeps ourselves looking good within our own judgement, it can lead to a false view of yourself. One learns and grows in life only through humility and by continuously being open to and being aware of one’s own problems thereby trying to either correct it or work around it. A solution is never needed when there is no problem and a problem when ignored continues to grow with time.

Dealing with an advice…


There are many interactions with people where there may be an advice communicated to you. It may be based on your question or just an observation or an unsolicited one. It may come from someone younger or older or wiser or someone you feel is stupid and worthless. How does one react to this advice is an art and key to your improvement. Firstly one should focus on the essence of the advice than the person who has uttered it. Secondly, if the advice seems good for you, absorb it and try to implement it. Thirdly, if its an advice which you practice anyway, feel happy that you have reinforced what you practice. Lastly, if it is a wrong advice from your point of view, ignore it and  slowly try to bring your point of view without putting the other person down.

Past biases in relationships..


Any relationship matures with time. With the help of patience, tolerance, analysis of situational behaviors and various tests of understanding,  it reaches a balance of comfort and ease.  On the flip side, this creates a set of biases which has been established in the past and which unfortunately does not allow the future relationship to be stable. People do change with time based on so many factors which they go through. This also means that many a time old biases has to be kept aside and a new understanding has to be reached with new useful biases to be created for the future.

Desires leads to happiness or sadness…


One goes to a restaurant,  desires and orders for a dosa expecting it to be to one’s liking with tasty chutney and sambar on the side. After some time, Dosa comes with a tasty chutney and a badly made sambar. One has a choice to be happy with the dosa and chutney or be sad with the dosa and sambar. One also can get angry and stressed by the sambar that you don’t enjoy the good dosa and chutney. If one has gone with no specific desire and no expectation, one can be happy with what has come. Desires can lead to both happiness and sadness in varying degrees and no desire can lead to accepting what has come to you. Many choices for you to choose from.

Understanding misunderstanding…


We often find that even when we are correct from our point of view, others find it incorrect from their point of view. Strangely, both are right from their own point of view and possibly both could also be wrong from another person’s point of view. These individual views leads to confusion, ego triggers and misunderstanding. The focus usually is to try and aggressively prove one is right and defocus from the concept
which is being discussed and debated. One has to decide their objective in such encounters. Either decide that you want to be the person who is right or you will take all the views around and distill it to become a little wiser that when you started.

Good times and bad times…


Everyone goes through good times and bad times in one’s life. The overall happiness is based on one’s ability to increase the good times and also how one’s maturity to handle the bad times. Firstly, one needs to have a graceful acceptance of situations which happen and which are really not in one’s control. Secondly, one should   neither get too excited about good times not get too depressed about bad times. Thirdly, just let it pass and experience it as it comes. If one can go through bad times happily then you have conquered your ability to be happy at all times.

Living a life of love….

Love for people makes us attractive and useful to everyone. Love for yourself will help nurture your body mind and soul. Love for one’s profession leads us to excel in it. Love nurtures happiness and contentment. Love helps in healing. Love can be transferred through all mediums. Wake up with love for everything  and your day is filled with happiness.

Thoughts become energies…


Thoughts, one has turn into energies which encircle and drive you towards the same thoughts. This is true for both positive and negative thoughts. This is also true for collective thoughts of a family, a team, an organization, a country or even the whole human race. It is important to be as positive as possible in your thoughts. When you keep telling a child that he is a very shy person, he becomes an introvert unconsciously. If you tell him that he is slowly becoming a confident person, he moves in that direction. One cannot avoid negative thoughts but one use them to delve on them for a short while and find the positives in it for your future.

Humans have become unwanted viruses to nature…


Ask Mother nature about human beings and I am sure she would say she is struggling with humans who have become bad viruses in her balanced environment. Take a look at nature sans humans and you will get the picture. We have destroyed mountains, trees, animals, birds , fish, air, water and earth. Without us, We would have no hate politics, compulsive crime, religion based wars, language based  turmoil, country based enmity, currency based domination in this world. All other beings would be free in nature by living, dying and surviving in their own environment. Before we are made extinct, it is high time humans learn to be a good and responsible citizen of nature which was given free to us.

Freedom of speech misused..


Most people like to talk and share their views on everything. It seems to give a boost to go to their ego as they feel others will respect them for the knowledge and information they seem to have. How many talk or observe or listen responsibly ? Do they really know the facts before sharing ? Do they manipulate information to boost their ego ? Do they avoid spreading rumors for fun ? Do they avoid harming people or views of other people when they say things? These are all dangerous habits which seems to have set into our culture. This will lead to a situation where nothing said can be believed and everyone will be far from the truth. One must try and practice talking with responsibility, hearing carefully to avoid confusions, and seeing smartly without a bias.
