Infinite possibilities

Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life. -Eckhart Tolle

There is a strange force within our nature that keeps pulling us towards either past or future. It doesn’t allow us to stay in the present, in the moment. Nowadays most of us are living our lives in hopes that something better is going to happen in the future. In that sense, it means that we are living for the future, in the future. That’s not the way to live, never was and never will be. You can dream about the future, but cannot live there. You can only live in the present moment, that’s the only thing you actually have.

We all keep complaining about our lives, we blame it on circumstances, people, fate, and money. We do it because we are looking for a change in future, but not in present. In fact every moment offers us infinite possibilities! You are laughing on this now, right? Seeing around, you may think it’s impossible, but if you see within, it’s not only possible, but it’s already existing!

Let us consider this by an example. Imagine that there are hundred doors and for each door there is one key. There is only a single slot provided for all those keys where you can put one key at a time. For every key you put in it, one of the door unlocks. Now you have those hundred keys in your hand. But you focus your eyes and mind on only one of the door (maybe anything from career options, desires, relationships, etc) and keep changing keys in that slot (brain) hoping that one particular door (future) will unlock. But you don’t notice that with every key (moment) you put in that slot, one of the other doors keeps opening. But you are unaware of it. You are ignorant of the process. You consider yourself as limited, and your possibilities as limited. If you are in the moment, you are more aware, more observing! You can observe every door, every possibility.

We cannot live in the future. You cannot wear sweater now just because it will be winter after few months. Future is uncertain. You only have is this moment. You cannot deny the moment. If you have become a triangle, it’s difficult to become a circle from this state. You have to let go of what you have falsely assumed yourself as, here as triangle, and turn back into a point (•) again. From then you can start becoming a circle. That’s what we really call as transforming. Letting go is an art that only few can master.

Don’t expect anything from future. It also doesn’t know where it is going.
Don’t expect anything from the past, it cannot take you anywhere as it’s gone.
Don’t expect from the present as it is already giving you infinite possibilities!

Thanks for reading. 🙂

A ship that never sinks

Our faith is a ship that never sinks, still sometimes we lose our faith because there is not enough water beneath this ship to move forward.

It comes a time in every one’s life where we all face a situation in which we tend to lose faith because of our conditions. Does it mean that the ship of our faith is sinking! I think no. Because the ship of faith never sinks, it always knows how to swim in the times of good and float in the times of bad. The reason we tend to lose faith is because we don’t keep enough water in our rivers to move forward. Having said that, I mean, water is to ‘Inspiration’ and rivers is to ‘life’. It means that we don’t have enough inspiration in our life for our ship of faith to travel to our destiny. Inspiration is the medium of transport for the ship of faith to travel forward. So we lose faith because it is still, it is not moving. In such situations we need to get inspiration and put back ship of faith back on track.

We all need something to move forward. Moving forward not in the sense of distance, it is in the sense of life. Our life keeps us testing by giving difficult situations to keep that inspiration flowing. What is a difficult situation? What is a good situation for you and what is bad? If it does good to you then only the situation is good for you? Then you are wrong. Bad situations brings out the best in us. Bad situation is not bad for you at all, it just says that situation is in trouble and you have to solve the issue. It is an opportunity in disguise to bring out the hidden talent out of you, which could have never come out otherwise.

We should not get attached to the situations because of their conditions. We have get over the situation with our confidence and be happy for what we have learnt from the situation. We should not feel happy when someone is in a difficult situation, we should try to help them out. I don’t know from what humans have come from, but I know, humanity is definitely about helping fellow humans. Even we get more inspiration when we help others out. To bring people out of depression, negativity and difficult situations makes us more strong and happy. That feeling cannot be described in words, anyway.  Difficult situation is temporary but not the lesson learnt from it.

Inspiration comes in many forms. The thing which makes us think about it and give us a good vibe to become something worth living or doing something worth doing, that can come under the category of inspiration. Even though inspiration can make us think of becoming a better person, you have to travel towards that better version of yours with inspiration as fuel. Because ‘we can draw inspiration from others, but still we have to paint it by our own in our life’. Easier said than done. It is not an easy task for sure as it takes our faith, courage, time and determination. Because inspiration is just the water that creates a medium for the flow, it is we who have to keep flowing with faith to reach our goal.

Don’t run for material things which offer you happiness for few moments. Life is a simple hide and seek game by our creator, even I have written a post on this. We have to reach our creator by seeking for him, by having faith in him. Difficult situation are clues to find his whereabouts and get closer to him. Inspiration keeps us motivated enough to reach there. So fill the sea of your life with inspiration, let your faith flow in inspiration towards your destiny.

Life is a teacher

Each day’s situation is a question asked to you by life and what you do the whole day is its answer. Make sure the answer is relevant and satisfying. Keep learning from these question and answer sessions.

They say our fate is written, but what is written? I’m sure that not everything is written. The things which will happen to us may have been written but how we will react to it or tackle with it is not written. It cannot be written, it has to be created as time passes by. So what we do is, we create our own reality. We have that power to write our life in ourselves. You are writing a new chapter in your life every day, in the form of questions and answers. Life not only asks questions it also teaches us lessons. But remember you get to know the lesson only after you give your answer. If you give right answer, it is a success and if you give a wrong answer, it teaches you a lesson. It’s a win-win situation.

Life even tests your memory power. Life asks the same question in different occasions to test your memory. If you learnt the lesson of that question previously but still you cannot answer the question when asked again, then the question paper gets tougher. So be careful while learning your lessons. You don’t have to be successful to answer your life. You have to courageous enough to face the life. You don’t have to carry your past on your head, but you have to remember what you have learnt in the past.

Life also plays a trick with you. As long as you think you have to answer every question of your life, you never feel happy. Life may play and ask you questions which don’t have answers, they just have sorrow, sadness, emptiness and depression on other end. And when you try to answer these type of tricky questions with ego, hatred and misery, you lose happiness, peace and love. So whenever a question is leading you to sorrowfulness or depression, don’t answer it. At that time try to solve others’ questions. It’s good to help others. Everyone have different question papers so everyone has learnt different lessons. When we share our journey, we learn different lessons without even facing such questions. We learn what life taught to others and we can teach what we learnt from life. This is how we can trick our life and be a successful person in living life. Living for others is always a great feeling. Just believe in time, everything happens for a good cause. Keep learning from life.

We cannot learn everything in a single life. That’s why we keep circling in the birth-death cycle. So make sure you learn whatever is possible so that the consciousness may be helpful at the next stage. We have to experience everything which our soul asks for, which can be done by meditation. Meditation is the connection between the inner world and soul. It’s a journey into the deep of our existence to answer the questions of life in an efficient manner. It is the connection between the question that is asked and the way how to answer it. Because your soul knows more than your mind. Try to answer the questions of life and learn the art of living. Keep meditating, it helps us in knowing our purpose.

Emptiness

Emptiness is not just absence of everything or presence of nothing. Sometimes Emptiness also comes in presence of everything or absence of nothing..

Sometimes the feeling of emptiness is  because we desire for everything and we assume we have them.  And when we don’t get what we desire, we feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think you know everything. And when you realize there is always something which you don’t know, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think you own everything you have. And when you can’t buy happiness with that thing, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think everyone you know is yours. And when you see their different faces and varying character, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you believe in fixed way of viewing at things. And when some things don’t match up with your view, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think everything around is constant. And when you see yourself in different situations, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you attach yourself with other things. And when you realize that you have to carry them with you, every moment, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you dream something without a goal. And when that dream doesn’t come true after a period, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you don’t adjust your plan according to situation. And when that plan doesn’t work the way you have planned, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think you are superior to everyone. And when you realize you are not and there are many great people out there, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think time is always in your hands. And when time changes and gets out of your hand, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you are full busy in daily schedule. And when something important pops out in between that, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think materialism is life. And when you feel spiritually low and mentally ill, you feel that you are empty.

Emptiness is when you look only for success. And when you realize being simple is a happier option, you feel that you are empty.

Emptiness is when you want to be famous and a star. And when you come to know being anonymous is more peaceful, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you want to be rich. And when you realize that richer people have more enemies than friends, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you don’t believe in God. And when you are in trouble, you don’t know whom to offer a prayer, then you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you don’t take decisions as per the requirement. And when it turns out to be a failure, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you take a path followed by masses. And when you don’t find your destiny, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you have a weight in your brain in the form of problems. And when you don’t write down how you feel, you feel more heavy. You feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think you will live forever. And when day by day you grow older, you feel empty.

So what did you learn? Is emptiness just absence of something or sometimes it comes even just because of presence of something! So never desire for anything just because it will benefit you in future. Do something which removes your habit of desiring. Be happy and peaceful with what you have and don’t take them for granted. Never attach yourself deeply with anything or anyone, do your duty and move. Don’t follow the path others decide for you, choose the path on which you feel you will find your destiny, but remember, your path should not hurt others. Don’t feel happy or sad because of situations and its result. Because happiness don’t come from senses or desires, it comes from spiritual development and self-satisfaction.

To be frank, I was feeling empty from a few days now and it was taking me away from my happiness. There was no real reason to feel empty but still I was feeling so. For just avoiding that emptiness, I filled this blog post. I think I feel better after writing this and I hope the same after you read it.

I don’t know for some reason, the comments which I make on other blogs are not showing up. They are going to the spam folder. Hope it gets resolved soon. Thanks for the support.

Thanks for reading. Stay blessed. Keep Smiling. 🙂

Relation between time and humans

With passing time, if you are not learning anything new, then you are not living, you are just ticking like a timer.

If you keep looking at her, she keeps sinking.
If you keep thinking about her, she keeps shrinking.
If you ignore her, she goes away quickly jumping.
When you don’t have her, she laughs at you winking.
Because she is time.

Creativity, the more you use it, the more you have it.
Food and fuel, the more you use it, the less you have it.
Interest, you use it or not, the interest on money always keep increasing.
She, whether you use it or not, she always keeps decreasing.
Because she is time.

You don’t know how much you have her,
Then why you smell faults instead of a flower!

You don’t know when she will be gone,
Still why you waste her by sticking to a phone!

You never know when she is right or wrong,
Then why don’t you listen to a melodious song!

You never know when she is fast or slow,
Then why still you are not learning to grow!

You will never get ahead of her,
Still why you keep running for her!

She is not the same for everyone,
Why you still compare yourself with what others have done!

She is not your road to walk on,
She is not your companion to walk with,
She is not your luggage to carry on your back,
She is not your mobile phone to live with,
She is not your money to exchange with,
She is not your talent to showcase,
She is not your face to make up,
She is not your loss that can be covered,
She is your profit that can be saved for future,
She is not at all yours, but she is involved in everything you do and even when you do nothing.

You are a small part of time. Make it the best part. And it is always the best time to do what you want to do, if you think so. In the entire book, there is always a quote which strikes first whenever we hear that book’s name, be that quote

The time remaining is not for covering the time which is already lost, it is for decorating moments which we create in the present. It can be done only by looking into your present actions.

Time is referred as ‘her’ just to give it a human effect.
Thanks to Maya Angelou, for her beautiful quote, which gave me the idea for this relativity.

X is for X-the unknown quantity: Day-24

Any good Maths has done to me is that it taught me to assume any unknown quantity to me as ‘X’. And then, just work on it to find its value by any possible means and fitting it in known equations.

Maths is my favorite subject (after Science). Though I never believed that the equations, the transforms, the derivatives and obviously the calculus will be useful in real life. But they have taught us the basic principle of life. Even though if something is unknown to us, we have to assume it as a known quantity and work with it. Because there are always some known quantities related  to that unknown quantity. We can find the unknown quantities by just equating these known and unknown quantities. Don’t get bored, Maths is not that boring. It is interesting when you start playing with numbers. Equating here refers to equating your confidence level to the required level to know that unknown quantity. You can find everything you want in your life if the numbers match in the equation of life.

There are different ways of knowing that unknown quantity, sometime you have to increase the work time to find it, sometime you have to increase the confidence level, sometimes you have eliminate the negativity factor and sometimes you have to keep faith in time. Maths is everything and everywhere, no I am not talking about money, I am talking about numbers. There is no unknown quantity in maths, even we have equations on the infinite unlimited numbers, then why not on our limited  life. So assume the unknown quantity as ‘X’ and start working with it in equations of time, work, confidence, power, energy and faith. Keep equating, keep finding. Even we are given this life to find the value of unknown quantity ‘Destiny’,  assume it as ‘X’ and start finding. ‘X’ is also used to mark an unknown spot or a mark where the treasure is hidden. Yes, the treasure is your destiny.

This is my entry for A to Z challenge . It is already day 24 and it is on the letter ‘X’. ‘X’ is the unknown quantity which we have to assume as known and work with known equations to find it.

X

Coming to the challenge, as the name itself says it is very challenging. On every day of month April, except Sundays, which makes it to 26 days, each participant should publish a post relating to the letter corresponding to the number of the day thus completing all the 26 alphabets. For example on day 1, the post should be on something related on letter A, on the second day it should be related to B and this goes on. Exciting? Isn’t it?

And as always, thanks for reading. Have a good week ahead.
