Life is a vector quantity

Most of us live our life as if it is a scalar quantity. But the moment we realize our life is a vector quantity we tend to concentrate on direction of our life rather than magnitude of our life.

Scalar: Something which has just magnitude but no direction.
Vector: Something which has both magnitude and direction.

When we look at world and check at qualities with which we measure life of people, we come to know that they all have been converted into scalar by us. Marks, money, power, passion, age etc. . But in real they are all vector quantities and their directions should be towards goodness. Marks should direct students to improve their skills, money should direct earners to help those who are not in a state to earn, power should direct power holders to use it to get justice for those who seek it. Passion is important, but passion without purpose is not worth of anything. To direct our passion so that it can help others should be a purpose. Age is just a mere number for some, but clever people know age is a factor of experience. As age grows our curiosity should increase in the direction of learning something new. Every day we should learn something new.

Life is not just a journey from birth to death with certain speed (I mean number of days it takes to travel from birth to death, age). Life is a vector by every means. So after taking birth and gaining consciousness, travelling towards a particular direction makes our life more meaningful and journey more joyful. When we ask others, many say future belongs to us. So they think that they work for a better future. To make the future better they sacrifice their present. They think future is a direction which drives them forward. But we often tend to forget that our future doesn’t exist. Future is like a ‘garland’ which is yet to be created with ‘flowers’ which we have at present. But we don’t know whether we will be able to complete it or not. So future is just an imagination. So the real direction of our life is purpose. Purpose is what gives gives our passion a direction. Because purpose is a real thing as it comes from real elements like determination and contribution where as future is formed with thoughts and fiction. Purpose is the back bone of every invention and discovery. So purpose should be the direction of our passion. If our drive for passion can help others to come out of a dark times, then purpose is fulfilled. So direction in our life matters. Travel in a good direction.

Thanks for reading. I have been away from WP for few days. On 29th of August, our most auspicious festival, Paryushan, began and on last monday it has completed. So as it goes that on the final and eight day of this festival we greet ‘Micchami dukkadam’. If in any way my words or actions have hurt you knowingly or unknowingly, I seek your forgiveness. We request this to every individual and thus cleanse our soul from our actions which we may have performed knowingly or unknowingly. Micchami dukkadam. I know i have been late, it was on Sept 5th. 

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.

Thanks for reading. Be inspired. Have faith on time.

Abundance of happiness

When people think of life as a deal, it becomes more complex situation which we cannot deal with.

Deal is something in which we give away something to receive something else. But on the other hand, Life is always about giving and spreading happiness.

Created using: Textgram app.

Time is a place. There are three different regions in this place and there are even boundaries to them which we have thinned down by our ignorance. Those regions are past, present and future. We all live in the ‘present’ region of time. We cannot change the situations in past region (our past) and cannot predict what is going on in the future region (our future). So how can we make a deal with these places! How can we export our happiness to the past, where there will be no one to utilize it and how can we import expectations from future, who are sending their junk to our region. Cut the deal. We have abundance of happiness here itself. Be in the present. This is what we are supposed to do. To give happiness to others in the same region of present and to expect nothing in return. Life is a medium to refine the soul and make it free from the prisons of cycle of life.

Thanks for reading. Have a beautiful weekend. Spend good time in present region of time.

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.

Family and Friends are the best people to be in this present region. Because happiness magnifies only in their presence. So make the most of time.

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.

Locks and their keys

What a beautiful thought it is that our problems are the locks which rest in our minds and their keys are thrown randomly by the creator in the hearts of people we connect. The solution of one’s mind rests in the hearts of others.

I think, we all feel the same in one way or other, that we all are locked in a particular set of problems for which we cannot think of a solution. We try to solve it by every way possible but problems just gets deeper. It is because we try to open the lock with the wrong key. It is because all the information cannot be stored in a single mind. It needs a group and connectivity among that group. Connectivity, what a great term it is. Connection is not that easy as it may sound. We doesn’t just believe and trust people easily for establishing a everlasting connection. Strangers unknown about each others’ journey to get connected and share their journeys, takes a lot of confidence and for sure, time. Connections are the keys sent by the God to unlock our problems. Problems’ sizes may vary from microscopic atoms to gigantic planets. But there is key to every problem and even keys come in all sizes. 

We all should feel happy about these connections. Make these connections fruitful by showing keys to their problems and seeing keys in them for your problems. A connection is always a two sided one. Feel happy and blessed to be in such a great connection (internet) with many people of this virtual world too. Our problems are just make us stronger and to help us unite with others. After all we are all connected through the universal soul. 

We meet many people in our journey’s intersection.
But with only few, we feel that magical connection.

Problems gets divided and happiness gets multiplied,
if the protocol of this soul-connection is properly applied.

Like a Bluetooth needs two working devices for sharing media,
This need two souls’ connection for sharing our life’s wikipedia.

Lot of people living with less connections and more problems.
Feeling stuck and locked within, but still they show no symptoms.

You may say that in market, the lock and the key comes in the same box.
But in life, never in the same mind, the solution to the problem knocks.

Problems in your mind, solution not in your thoughts.
Lock is under your pillow, but the key on others’ cots.

Feel the special bond of souls, you are a special human. 
and you will reach your goals, like Truman show’s Truman.

There are words and there is rhyming.
There are destinies and there is timing.

So today I am back to my home town after a sudden 6 day trip to Pune. The trip was awesome and I made some nice connections with the people I met. I visited the Agam Tirth temple at Katraj which was so beautiful and divine. It was nice to spend good spiritual time there. Then I met my cousins at Shiroor and had great fun. Miss them, really!  I even my visited my friend who works at Infosys in Pune and shared a memorable time. I realized how busy he is in his life. But the return trip was somewhat boring but it made me watch movie in my tablet rather than making more connections. 

After a good lazy afternoon sleep today, it was time to think and type something again after a break. As they say, our thoughts always keeps wandering, but still we feel locked. Because may be wandering in the right place is important than just wandering.

I don’t know but for some reason my comments on other blogs are not showing up. They are getting into spam folder. Hope it gets resolved soon. Thanks for the support. Stay blessed. 🙂 

Have a great time everyone, my beautiful connections. Thanks for reading. 

T is for Time: Day-20

Time is a very twisted and a turning phenomenon which never gets tired of travelling from one point to another. It takes everything with it and we never are on the same plane of time again. Time keeps creating new situations, new challenges and we have to face them and make the most of it. We have to learn from them and excel in our life. Time is the measurement quantity which we use for scheduling events and also for sequence of activities. It is not time on which we all run and live. It is on moments. Every person has his/her own sheet of time. Time always deceives us by following different patterns.

Sometimes time moves quickly than a clock and sometimes it moves slower than a turtle on a clock. But time goes nowhere. We are seeing at time depending upon our perspective. When we are busy time we feel as if time is moving quickly and we are getting bored, we feel as if time is moving slowly. It is an illusion. Our clock is not the real-time. The moments we make out of it is the only reality. With every time period there is a turning point associated with it. There is a timing. We have to sync to it to get the best of it.

Haiku on time:

Time is illusion
Only moments which we build 
is reality.

This is my entry for A to Z challenge . It is already day 20 and it is on the letter ‘T’. ‘T’ is for Time. Time is an illusion but there is a timing of it.

T

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 beautiful week ahead. And also the last week of the challenge. Take care. Make the most of moments.

I have reduced the online presence to a great extent. It is like an illusion and carrying away the time away from me. So just sitting back and building real moments and cherishing them. Two days back relatives came to  our home and they were talking about present generation children remaining attached to screens ( Tv, Mobiles, Tablets, Systems and Laptops). They said everyone is wasting time for hours and losing the real moments of life. I also realized it. May be that’s the reason I am not using more than half an hour on internet these days. I feel good. Have a good time.
