Pose or Purpose? 

Pose is showing others what we pretend to be & what they want us to become.
Purpose is showing your own self what you are & what you want to become.

Have you ever felt as if you are living life the way others want you to be or the way others tell is the only way to live life. We all feel this way sometime or the other. This is a feeling sent by universe to change your direction. But we feel this as a common thing and ignore it. Once this message dissolves in our brain, again we involve ourselves in worldly matters.

How artificial our thoughts have become in this world. Only for the sake of surviving, we have embraced sensual pleasures, possessions, fake identity, false security and masked intentions. We have given up our purpose of living. In the name of technology our own spiritual powers have been stolen. We have become servants of technology. Our desires tripled and their bank balances too. Everyone is out there to show others how happy and rich they are, when in fact they are so poor that they want others’ attention to feel rich. Whenever I see people here spending thousands of rupees for the name sake, but not even a rupee for human sake, I feel as if I am living in hell. It’s about time to make this place a heaven. And it starts with our brain.

Our purpose is to seek the ultimate truth and seek asylum of the very nature. There are many paths through which we can reach the truth, but there is only one ultimate truth. But instead, what we do is mask lie with the name of truth (pose) and accept it as to be the truth. We destroy our own house i.e., our nature and build artificial houses in our brain to justify it. The psychology of humans is at the cross roads now. Even though we have kept our foot on the road of lie, the source of life i.e., truth is still sending us messages through nature. We compare that unique message with mundane world and ignore that message. It’s time to notice that message. Once our thoughts in brain becomes pure, everything starts becoming pure.

There is still time. Pose is still a pose and before that pose becomes the only purpose, we have to escape from this artificial prison we have created in our brain. Come out. Happiness and bliss have always been here. They were just hiding behind the our selfish intents and human-less actions. Isn’t the feeling of being alive is the ultimate rather than desiring for worldly pleasures. Once think upon it.

Hold the hand of faith and seek for ultimate truth. This journey is full of eternal bliss and happiness. It is up to you, Pose or Purpose? Thanks for reading. Have a great sunday.

The Judge and Lawyer within

There is a judge within you, who always find defects in others.
There is a lawyer within you, who always defend mistakes of yours.

This is a very very big problem of human beings, we judge everything. We want everything to be the exact way we want them to be. If we stop judging people on the basis of color, religion, living style and profession, more than 70% of the world’s problems would get solved. Have you ever replaced yourself mentally in the place of any other human being? Once try. When you will do so, you will realize how many mistakes we make in this material body. We judge even the minute issues of others and ignore our own gigantic mistakes. This is because there is a Judge and a lawyer within us, who controls our brain, who came into us through the holes created by our own desires.

Everything in universe is made up of atoms. With time, atoms associates with each other and when times comes they dissociate. This is the eternal rule of the universe. We are the souls, which are immaterial and pure in itself, that are given a chance to see the material manifestation of universe. But when we started judging the universe and fellow beings, something called karma associated with us. To break this bond with Karma we wander from one life to another. When we judge others on the basis of different attributes, we further deepen our bond with Karma.

*****
‘Hey, see her skin color. It’s so dark.’
‘Oye, see at his body. He is so thin.’
‘Look at that scar on the moon.’
‘They are so poor.’
‘See, he is 45 and still a worker’
‘He has no sense of humor’
‘Those people are very illeterate.’
‘He is a monk that too in 21st century’
‘He doesn’t have a home of his own.’
*****

We all make judgements, even on unnecesary topics. May be it’s because we want entertainment. But judging others is not entertainment, its spoiling our own peace of mind. How many times we judge others on the basis of material manifestations, knowingly and unknowingly. We cannot accept the fact that someone else is living their life according to their own principles. We want things to be in control. Remember, if you ever get a thought that you want to control others, its not them, its you who is been controlled by your evil mind.

Don’t we all make mistakes? We all do. But instead of accepting them, we blame it on others. We cannot let our ego down. We want a lawyer to defend our mistakes. We all justify our mistakes by making many excuses in our brain. For example, we feel angry on others and then justify it by saying that they deserve it. Anger is like setting a fire, first we burn ourselves and then others. We make many mistakes, we have to learn them and avoid doing them again. We have to accept what comes our way and act according to it, not against it.

We all play video games, don’t we? There are checkpoints in most of those games. Only if we cross them, we get to play our next chance from that point. If we don’t cross them, we have to start playing our next chance from the beginning. We have to overcome these acts of judging others’ defects and defending our own mistakes. They are the real life’s checkpoints. If we overcome them we can start living life peacefully from that point. Else we have to start again from beginning, judge -> make a mistake -> blame it on others -> suffer -> judge more, and this cycle goes on and on. To break this cycle you have to overcome the evil acts of judging others’ defects and defending our own mistakes.

Thanks for reading. Have a great week ahead. Don’t judge this post. 😀

Yu and Mi (Part-4)

Yu and Mi (Part- 4)

** This is a work of fiction. **

*****

Even though we have met many times so far and have extracted many layers, we are yet to reach that depth where love resides. It’s been 3 years since we are in a relationship, but this ship is still on the land, in the mode of testing. At present, we are trying to detect any faults in the ship, if any, so that when we start our journey on the waves of marriage, our ship doesn’t sink down, which is the case in most of the ships. Strange? I know. It is very complicated to handle all this, to control what we speak, to express and most importantly to love. Even the experts in this field are the owners of many broken ships. A lot happened in these 3 years. One more ship had sinked meanwhile. Her parents got divorced last year. It was the epicenter of this ‘Testing mode’ of our ship. I know it is tough for her to handle this, but it is tougher for me when she says she can handle it all alone. She doesn’t let me console her. She says she can be a man too. Nowadays she has become more of a feminist type. I don’t know whether she even understands what she says. The trends on internet always breaks more than join. I saw time, it was 8:30 pm. I felt tired after a busy day. If you keep doing all day what you don’t like, you are prone to get more frustrated. I tried to sleep for half an hour, but I cannot. I felt as if something is going on in my heart.

A quick meeting was planned by the three important departments of the company. The place chosen was at some height from the ground. There were four rooms but they decided to meet in the first one. There were three people, one each from the 3 important departments. There were two choices. They had to decide on one. The issue was that the company is in trouble and the owner of it cannot sleep at night. There are no revenues and there are assets neither.

The manager of the top department, which deals with technical stuff and investment, said that the company is not running well as we are investing too much in wrong stocks. Even though we got good returns for the first two years, now what we spent is getting more than what we received. Their department believes that it’s time to change the stock in which they are investing and find some better stock.

The manager of the Middle department, which deals with public relations and emotional issues, said that even though the stocks are very good, they are going from a difficult period at present. They are under pressure. Their owner is having personal issues which takes time to get fixed. We got good returns for the first two years of the investment, only from one year we are facing this. If we believe in them for some more time, we will get much more than we have expected. Have faith.

The manager of the bottom department, which deals with growth and pleasure, complained that both the other departments are getting their share of what’s left but his department is yet to receive its payment from the beginning. It’s not fair. But he said his department believes that only this stock can provide the best growth rate to the company. I request you to give my payment soon. Our staff is suffering.

As two of the three managers decided to keep investing in the stock, they decided to go on with the company’s rules. New policies and programing was set and company consciousness was rewired. Suddenly the place began to shake. It felt as if there’s an earthquake. They rushed under a cage and held their hands with a smile on their faces. They remember they felt 2 aftershocks.

After 3 sneezes, I felt somewhat relieved. Something inside was hurting me before this, as if some people were sitting inside my heart and discussing something. After 3 sneezes I felt as if my consciousness has been rewired. New ideas kept coming inside as if more energy has been invested in my body. I realized that she is going through a tough phase, how can I, in such phase quarrel with her. Patience level increased in me. But it is not only me. She is also showing lots of patience. She is bearing the angry side of me. I do business of export and import, which she says is not for me. She says I am meant to write. I write and try to inspire people, but it cannot earn me bread. She always wants me to do something about my passion, I always brush aside the issue. Even I want to do something about my passion, I tried many publishing houses but I got rejected. I didn’t tell her about all this, she is already facing enough. Her mom has shifted to Delhi after the divorce. Anyway, even before divorce she used to stay in Delhi most of the time. This distance was the cause may be which gave this effect. Her dad who is a textile businessman now just sits at home and keeps crying for the lost deal at night. He never invested enough time in the marriage and have invested enough tears in divorce. He is MAD. Yes, MAD, Married and Divorced. RashMi looks after different charitable works. She loves to help poor people and does painting to get funds, charitable funds. She always wanted to be the son which her father wanted, and believe me, she is. But this has also has made her a feminist. She always brings this issue in the middle, like a nose comes in between two two-lipped scissors. I want to be my father’s son she always says. My mindset never lets me feel as I am poor, as I have rich thoughts and a 6-digit bank balance. She always talks about future, will I stay happy doing all this work, she really believes I am meant for writing. But what future? There is no guarantee of the next second and she talks about unpredictable future. It is like you are standing on one shore and you can see your destination on the other shore. But because our present (boat) is not good, lets wait till future (ship) becomes good. You have boat, then travel. My dad is a bank manager. My mom a home manager. Only their son cannot manage anything emotional! I am stuck in between. To continue with export and import or concentrate on full-time writing. Time was over 9. 9 has always been my lucky number, I was born in 9th month and on 9th day. She said she would message me at 9 in the night when I called her in the morning. She should have come home few minutes ago. Even my mobile knows that. It spoke to me in some unknown language after few seconds.message tone.
Whatsapp, RashMI, 2 messages.

‘Hi’
‘How are Yu?’

I typed *I am fine* and deleted it. And typed something else.

Mi is fine. Yu is not fine.’

‘How can Mi be fine if Yu is not fine!’

‘You are not fine?’

‘No, I am fine.’

‘Really?’

‘Yes. I am.’

‘That’s good. 🙂 ‘

‘Today I went to hospital.’ I felt a chill. What happened suddenly! I didn’t want to spoil a good chat.

‘Pregnant?’

‘Bye.’

‘Sorry. Okay. Tell. What happened?’

‘One of the staff member of charitable trust met with an accident. Someone called me from the spot, as my number was on the last called.’

‘I am so sorry. How is he now? Everything fine?’

‘She died. When I reached to the hospital, everything was over. Doctor said it was very late.’

‘Oh! I am very sorry. May her soul rest in peace.’

‘Thanks! :)’

‘Thanks? For what? For being an accident in your life?’

‘No. For being an angel in my life. You saved my dad that day. I will never forget that AbhimanYu’

‘I was just at the right place at the right time. But you are being a feminist here also. Angel? Me? You say you want to live life like a man. It’s ok. But you are comparing me to an angel! What justice is this!’ I felt guilty the moment I clicked on the send button. My ego typed this, not me. I realized that one sarcastic smiley could have completely changed the meaning of it.

‘Please Yu, not again. I am not up for this today. Angels are heavenly. There are no men and women classifications. I just hope you said this as in a jovial way.’ This relieved me. Not everything has gone out of control. I breathed and then threw my ego in my mental dustbin. Then I started typing.

‘Sorry. I don’t know why, but even I am becoming a menist day by day. My ego is getting better of me. I threw it outside today. See, RashMi, you know I never hurt you intentionally and will never. It is all our uncontrolled emotions that becomes our villian. I am very proud of you. You are a very responsible son and a responsible daughter. And you are even playing a role of a mother, by looking after your father. Hats off.’ Something inside me felt free the moment I sent this message. How great it feels to keep the ego aside and talk with our loved ones. I bet some discussions have taken place in my heart today which has rewired my perspective and consciousness.

‘Thank you AbhimanYu. I needed this assurance. I know you will never hurt me. Yes, my father have become like a child. As a mother, it is difficult for me to handle all this. That’s why I am not committing to you. I cannot handle it. Anyway, it is father’s duty to fulfill the child’s wishes. As I am the mother, can you be the father?’ I realized how difficult it is to be in the body of women. I felt very proud of her and all women at once.

‘Try me’

‘The child needs the real mother. :(‘ She sent this and went offline. I know she will be crying. But crying is important in such situations. If there is no rain, there won’t be rainbow. I have to become that rainbow. Her father needs the real mother, who else it can be, his wife. Now I have a boat infront of me, I won’t wait for the ship. I took out the contact of the real mother. Devyani Mehra. I pressed ‘call’. This is just the second time I am calling her. First time I called her was when his husband was physically hurt, and now when he is mentally hurt.

Desires create holes in our life

Desires are like machines which make holes in our lives and those holes further widen up when we try to fill those holes with our selfish efforts and aimless vision . This is the reason for emptiness in our lives. Let’s not create new holes and try to fill the existing holes with love and care for others with sefless efforts.

Desires are like obstacles to our peace and entry doors for evil in our lives. When we desire for something, we don’t see how or from where we obtain it. We become blind in the delusion of desires. We see only what we want and ignore all other elements that surround us. Desires are like traps set by evil on our path so that we can become their prey. Be careful.

When we desire for something, it creates a hole in our lives along with a slot in future timeline to receive fruits from this desire. We think (illusion) that we will fill these holes with our efforts, determination, plan and skills so that we can get what we desired. But here comes the twist. The evil energies are smart. When you desire for something and create a hole, evilness tries to tempt you by throwing a more desiring thing in the same category in your path so that your attention gets diverted from the real desire of yours to this new one. Now that former hole remain empty and you feel empty in your life. And this goes on and on as our desires keep accumulating. The hole created by one desire cannot be filled by other desire. Now say, who is responsible for creating these holes which didn’t even exist at first place!? Think on it.


Image source: I am saved by faith

When we start feeling empty, we get confused. We don’t know why we are feeling empty, because these holes are not visible. They exist in subtle levels. Evil energies keep coming in from these holes and we don’t even know that. Our levels of anger, greediness, hatred and ego may increase to intolerable levels that we may become evil ourselves. Open your eyes. Close your holes. Love and care are the only elements which can fill these holes and stop evil from entering our lives. So give up your selfish efforts and aimless vision. Let’s fill the holes with selfless efforts and good vision. Be on the right path of spirits and let the divine and good energy flow through you.

I don’t know for some reason the comments which I make on other blogs are not showing up. They are moving into their spam instead. I have contacted Akismet for this issue and hope it gets resolved soon.

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. 

Q is for Quotations: Day-17

Words written in between the Quotations ask us for special attention and tell us that they are special. Quotes are the short forms of words which spread the message of quality over quantity. In only few words we can go very deep with the concept and relate to them easily. I think they heal the wounds of thoughts quickly. Dictionary defines quotes as the ‘repeat or copy out (words from a text or speech written or spoken by another person).’ But I would like to share few of my own quotes ( don’t know whether I can call them like that) here.

“If you think you have achieved enough for yourself, it’s time to achieve for others.”

“There is no short cut to success, it is just that sometimes you have to take the longer path.”

“Not  everyone in the world is there to hold you with their fingers, some are waiting to hold you with their sharp nails. Be careful.”

“Don’t plan life for years, it may change in seconds. Instead plan your life in seconds such that it becomes be useful for years.”

“You can draw inspiration from others, but at the end you have to paint it by yourself in your life.”

“Only what you eat with your mouth reaches the stomach. So control your mouth well.”

“Make your immune system resistive to negative thoughts.”

“Our world is full of Love and Power. Love with wrong intentions and Power in wrong hands.”

“We all are tied with the invisible ropes of love and trust in our life. Be careful with your two-lipped scissors.”

“Life is a disease for which we have to find a cure.” (This quote is the first one I ever wrote. I wrote it in my friend’s slam book in 10th class.)

( I love quotes written by Maya. They are very inspiring. )

This is my entry for A to Z challenge . It is already day 17 and it is on the letter ‘Q’. ‘Q’ is for Quotations. They heal our mind quickly.

Q

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. Keep reading quotes and also keep framing quotes. The happiness of framing quotes cannot be expressed in words. Have a good week ahead.
