Thoughts: The headlines of our inner newspaper

Our morning thoughts are like the head lines of the inner news paper, circulated in our body, to set up the perfect mood for the smooth running of the day. Keep them positive and inspiring.

Yes, there is a news paper in our body which is circulated by our nerves to the whole body. The information published and circulated by that news paper is our thoughts. The writers of those important articles are our neurons. Thoughts once generated are circulated by the nerves throughout our body. Even though generating thoughts which will create a change is difficult, keep thinking. Thinking is the hardest part so only few engage in it. Don’t over stress though.

Thoughts, they rule our day. They are like the match sticks required to lit up our passion filled candles. We are occupied with what we think. We become what we keep thinking about often and find a way to build those thoughts into reality.

It is often the thoughts that differentiate successful and unsuccessful people. So if we think that everyone is successful, then everyone is damn successful. But in this identity seeking world, it is difficult to live as successful, without proving others that we actually are. So then came competition, rather than Cooperation. Just imagine what if the words which we think, compete with each other. Will there be any meaning of what we think? No. The perfect cooperation, chain and combination of words make our thoughts meaningful. I always wonder how our thoughts are generated? In the form of words, or in the words of images or some sort of medium which we are yet to discover?!  But I know they are like magic. Yes, the ability to think. The ability to create thoughts. The ability to arrange them in a meaningful way.

As there is a very famous quote,
“Sleep with an idea, wake up with a plan.” It is apt. When we sleep our cache memory of thoughts gets deleted automatically and junk files which bother us also gets deleted. We find ways to get out of a problem and think of solution instead of just thinking about the consequences of the problem. That’s why morning thoughts are very important. Even after the darkest nights, there will be a sunrise. So even after the darkest phase of life, there is a light we can generate. Yes, from within. Our thoughts. The light of our thoughts. They set the momentum for the day. Keep them positive and inspiring. Positivity and inspiration spreads quickly.

Keep the head lines of your inner newspaper positive and inspiring so that your readers, I mean the cells of your body, functions well with creativity and passion. Yes, your thoughts are like the head lines of your inner news papers, the news of tomorrow. Because your thoughts are responsible for the upcoming activities of your life. And activities, they are the head lines. Our inner news paper is published for making us ready to face the future. To face the world.

[Inner News paper concept mentioned here is just to describe that our thoughts has the power to be the headlines of news paper.]

Thanks for reading. Keep publishing the magical headlines.

A key journey in a train with a stranger

It was a hot sunny October afternoon of 2015, when I stepped into the railway station of LokManya Tilak Terminus (LTT). I checked out the electronic display fixed near the enquiry office and came to know that my train will be arriving on platform number 3 at 12:43 pm. I checked out my watch. It was 12:30 pm. I rushed to the stair case. When I stepped down the stair case on the other side, I reflexed back in a shock. Seeing the platform completely filled with passengers suddenly made me feel more concerned about our growing population. I just imagined the book Inferno by Dan Brown which was in my bag, which I had picked to read in that journey from LTT to my home, Kakinada. Note that I have already read that book twice till that date.  For a moment I wished that Bertrand Zobrist should exist in real.

* Train tickets mentioned here are just because this is a train journey and life engine because engine is related to train *

I stepped into the train when it arrived. S5 coach, Berth No. 32 it was. I always prefer Upper berth when I travel alone, because of the freedom it offers. Just go and sleep whenever you need, no issues. I surveyed the people around, a couple in their late 60’s sitting near the window seat, a man sitting with a smart phone in his hand and another man sleeping on the other upper berth of the compartment. Not a single person which I wished to see. No colors in the compartment.

The train blew horns and the tires started to roll slowly making the passengers feel the effect of a mild earthquake. After 10 minutes of doing nothing, a young man in his late 20’s came along with his wife and a 3 to 4 year old son. Finally something to feel happy about. Hey, I am talking about the small cute baby son. He came to me and asked where I was going. I said Kakinada town, the final stop. He then requested me that they are two members and they got tickets to Secunderabad in two different coaches S 5 and S 9. First we went to S9 and there no one could shift to S 5 as some were with their families and somewere old enough not to shift. Then he requested me to shift to S 9 as I was travelling alone. His berth number was 31 and mine was 32. Seeing his wife and their 3 year old son, I was not able to say No. I said I will shift at the next stop. They thanked me and arranged their luggage in the space provided under the lower berths. The train stopped after 15 min at the next stop and the guy said S 9 coach, Berth No. 41. I controlled my anger hearing the berth number, and finally got down. Shit! Lower Berth.

When I stepped in S 9, which I consider lucky number for me, I moved to the berth No. 41. Just 3 people were seated in the compartment of 8. And that young man said that no one could shift, he should have said that half of the compartment was empty. Let it be. A couple in their 40’s were sitting and chatting, I mean both on their own smart phones. One man in his early 50’s was sitting at the window opposite to me. At least I got a window seat here. That man in his early 50’s started the conversation.

“So that couple which came here few minutes back exchanged this seat to you?” he asked.

I said “Yes”.

He nodded his head and said “Good.” and then he asked “Where are you going?”

I said “Kakinada” and asked “You?”

He said “Secunderabad”.

And the conversation took off from introduction to all trending topics then, around the world. Till evening we talked a lot about the worldly affairs, politics, economics, population and marriages in India. Then for a break, we just sat watching nature outside for some time, it felt good.

Then we took tea and while drinking it, he said that after a long time he talked in this way to a stranger. I said me too. Then we started to talk about our lives. He asked what you do? I said I completed my B.Tech last year. He nodded and asked now what you do?  I said “I help my father in his business . . And I also blog” Then I explained him about blogging and what revolutions it can create if we use it in a good way. Then he told me about his daughter and her determination to follow her passion. He told that his daughter started to learn Japanese at a very young age, as she was fascinated by that language. Even though many people in their family opposed it, she didn’t let down her passion. She then got an offer as a translator in a company as the clients of company were Japanese. Then she flew to Japan, and settled down there.

I was very much inspired by the story. And he started to tell about his parents and told that he is very lucky to have such parents. He appreciated a lot about CIPLA’s initiative of treating Cancer Patients for free. There was a center of CIPLA where they treated Cancer patients.  There he admitted one of his relative who was suffering from Cancer and CIPLA took extreme care. There were lot of patients and CIPLA treated each and every person with utmost Care.  He told that he saw many people dying there, and told how precious life was.

He told to follow the passion as we will never get another life to follow our passion. I made up my mind that I will not give up blogging, which earlier I thought of giving up. I even stopped blogging for six consecutive months before from (Jan 2015 to June 2015). Then he told about his reason for his trip to Hyderabad (Twin city of Secunderabad),  as one of his relative was not feeling well, and that relative’s son called him to visit them once.

Time had passed over 9 pm then, so we started having dinner. We shared our food. My dad’s sister (Lives in New Vashi from where I travelled to LTT for boarding that train) packed me pooris and curry along with some khakras. He brought chapatis and we shared them. Then we had a little chat on spiritual and divine topics. He told that he visited a village ( a village near to my place) twice and he felt solace and calmness by visiting temples in that place. He told that his wife played an important role in taking him to spiritual path. I never visited that place even though I heard it before. I made up my mind that I will visit that place once.

It was over 11pm, and he said he sleeps by 11. Hyderabad which we will reach by 4 in the morning, I told him to wake me up by 3:30 am. But when I woke up, it was 7 am and he was gone. I told him thanks in my mind. I brushed my teeth and then had tea and Idli at the next station. Dan Brown would be angry with me that I didn’t even take out the book during the entire day of the journey. Just like Dan Brown unlocks the mysteries in a thrilling way, Life unlocked the key to my passion, in a most unexpected way. Who would have thought that my shift from S 5 to S 9 will shift my thinking on life. I felt inspired that day and in the afternoon I stepped down from Train on the Platform of Kakinada Town with a new ray of happiness and hope.

I knew that even though new year was four months ahead, my new year has started then. My new way of thinking towards life. To bring out the creativity in me, no matter what. I left behind the nervousness and depressions I have gone through then. I knew that a new sunshine is waiting to spread the golden rays on my future. I looked forward for my life with passion and determination to succeed.

Thank you uncle. This was my key Journey in a train with a stranger, now who is not a stranger anymore. Thanks for reading.

The season of Decisions: Decide in unison

2016, the digits sums up to nine,
Just to tell that, this time everything is gonna be fine.
Stand up facing the sky with both your hands spread wide and say, this time is mine,
And see all your cosmic stars fall in line.

With time, they say, some things go extinct, because they are no longer remembered or just because they can no longer survive in the world. I am not talking about dinosaurs, it’s about peace and happiness. We lost them somewhere on the track of developing ourselves, somewhere where we can never find, with our open eyes. In a world where the speed of activities are trying to sync with the rotation of earth around the sun.

It’s time to close the eyes and seek for that inner peace and happiness. Only in that darkness you can find the light, the light formed by your cosmic stars, formed by your passion. Your destiny is just a decision away.

Everything depends on a decision, as it is wonderfully said by Tony Robbins that “In the moments of decision, your destiny is shaped”.
Internet, though it made the world small by Connecting everyone beyond boundaries through it, it is still not able to make the hearts bigger by accepting the People the way they are. Not judging anyone depending upon the places and Religions is the basic requirement of that. So it’s new year, let’s make this decision, as it is the season to take decisions. Not to divide people according to their religions, because religions are just different languages to understand the one supreme power, the creator, GOD. Religions are not different worlds of God, they are just different ladders to reach the one God.

Just like a pyramid, though there are many starting points at the bottom, they all reach one point, one common point as they climb to its top. Same are all the religions. Though there are different ways to climb, the destiny of that journey is same. So what’s the use of dividing people on the basis of religions?

We all speak different languages. Still water means Water in English, Wasser means Water in German, Paani means water in Hindi. Even though we spell them and pronounce them differently, the meaning of the word doesn’t change. Such are the religions. Different languages to understand the same meaning of the one and only God.

The season of Decisions has already begun, why to sit back and follow the time. Stand up and lead the time. Yes, let us all take this Decision in Unison. To stop dividing people on the basis of religions, or by any other means. That will give us back the happiness and peace which we have lost on the track, because dividing people divides our heart which in turn divides our happiness and inner peace into small pieces which we can’t see. Once we stop dividing, we can get back our happiness and inner peace. Let’s make the world independent.

“The real independence is the freedom from dividing people on the basis of religions.”

Thanks for reading. Deciding??

The Perfect balance: A royal walk

New year has already knocked our doors and it’s also second day within a second. Time flies quickly, the trick is to fit in it. Time doesn’t take us anywhere, it just links two moments so that we can become what we want to become in this transition moment.

So I framed a quote, the count begins for me. The first quote of this year,

“Let’s not run for passion, this year let’s run with passion.”

Life can be best seen with the lens of passion and happiness. The more the passion, the more the happiness. The more the happiness, we feel the world more beautiful. We all are temporary visitors, having the ability to walk both sides, with legs into the future and with memories into the past. It is the perfect balance in between these that makes us live in the present. So maintain the balance and live in present. The perfect balance between is obtained only when we take a step by our foot with an idea of where we are heading.  That’s the royal walk. The royal race, the race within yourself with yourself. A race for destiny. 

This year let us run with passion, step by step reaching near to the destiny of ours to find the light within. Yes, run with Passion, let’s start, Pass the Ions.

Do what you love doing and keep doing it. Even though we revolve around the same sun every year, we always keep improving from within. Similarly is with the passion. We keep doing the same thing every time, but we always try do it in a creative way such that it improves us from within, every time.

Thanks for reading. Start running.
