The Art of Giving

“We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give.”- Winston Churchill. What you give comes back. What is this giving? Almost everyone in his/her life might have wondered what exactly do we give and what can be considered as giving.

 Lets look at this.

“An act performed without any selfish desire, and  with no expectation of return is a giving. Serving people selflessly.”

When you gift a friend without expecting praise or a return gift. When you wish well to others without expecting them to do it for you. When you perform a task without an expectation of thank you in return. When you pray for others without your own rewards.

Giving is not to receive, perhaps, doing it with conscience of no reward. We know, when we give something with the mindset of not receiving awards for it, universe rewards abundantly. That’s the Law of LIFE, Law of GIVING. Continue reading “The Art of Giving”

How to get Started towards your Dream?

American Novelist, George RR Martin quotes, “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, the man who doesn’t read only lives one.”

Books tell you stories, books give you wisdom, and books are your best friends. They lift you, make you smile, give goosebumps, help you regain your emotional side. They provide the emotional shift required to persevere, mental toughness to deal with changes.

“Books are mirrors: You only see in them what you already have inside you.” – Carlos Ruiz, Spanish Novelist. It is true that we are born with umpteen potential. Books provide you ways so that we can awaken our thoughts. We just need to realize and pursue our talents. With practice we keep getting better.

Power of Smile, Thanks, Please, and Compliments

You have no idea, how smallest of your gestures can make somebody’s day.

Do not believe it? lets look at it this way.

Suppose every day you make only two different people smile than the usual friends, family. How many smiles are you creating in a month? 60 smiles. How about you go to do this for a year? 720 smiles. And by 10 years, you will be creating more than 7000 people smile. Pure maths. Seems hard? It is not.

Every morning or any time of the day when you are out your house, you will encounter hundreds of new people in your day-to-day life. Most of them being different and strangers. Be it metro, train, road, office, movie hall, sports stadium or even on a 15 mins walk. Continue reading “Power of Smile, Thanks, Please, and Compliments”

New Friend Learning Meditation

Seasons change, thoughts change, and so does people.

The question is, what is this change we are talking about?

The change of welcoming stress, doubts, obstacles, worries, fear, guilt, resentment, anger, hate.
Or change of goodwill, courage, health, forgiveness, love, faith, peace, tranquility?

Change can only be handled by people when we create right circumstances, i.e., adopting the latter emotions.

Five days back, when I observed the trees were cut within a day, those flowers were not there anymore. For first 5 seconds it was hard, painful to think about them. They have been part of my daily morning routine since two weeks in this park.

Then, I thought maybe they were stressed, and now they are rejuvenating into a new life of peace into better version of themselves.

The next minute, I was on bench, about to close my eyes and enter the dreamland of meditation (my medication). Continue reading “New Friend Learning Meditation”

I Refuse to Give Up!

What keeps you going?
Bond, path, senses, desires, rewards, mind or your heart…

Laugh at yourself when you make mistakes, and work on them instead of saying, I am lazy. I am just like that. It’s not happening, I can’t do this. I am not meant for it. I give up.

“Every word spoken from your mouth, every thought in your mind produces a feeling.” When you repeat mistakes of using such words, your subconscious becomes habituated to the reality embedded inside your mind. Not just that, even cursing people brings negative vibes to self. When we curse, we lose temper, and welcome stress.

The truth of this attitude is found deeply in three ways:-

Complete Strangers yet Friends!

Friendship and the ways to define it.

Everyone has their own concept of friendship. The attributes one looks for in other person differ accordingly.

Think about the times when we were unknown to each other. The first time we talked. Then knowing one another. It took some time to get accustomed and make each other smile. A day or months in some cases.

Some incidents/moments, people, thoughts, experiences which we remember for a long time.
