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. 😀

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. 

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.

J is for Jumble: Day-10

“Life is like a jigsaw puzzle with thoughts being the jumbled pieces and its outcome depends only on the way you arrange the pieces of this puzzle one by one in order.”

Our life is a puzzle, with puzzle pieces being different time frames and situations. We have to be active and observe the pattern between them. We have to take actions according to that and have to wait for the fruitful outcome. We cannot change the pieces of our life, but we can change the situations by being optimistic during dark times and bringing different outcome out of it, a bright one. Life is nothing but a lifeless path if not lived with struggles. Struggles may be mental, situational, spiritual, personal or social. It takes one positive angle to jumble all the bad pieces into a good outcome of the puzzle.

When it comes to solve this puzzle, the jumbled pieces are also our thoughts. Yes, they are jumbled and not in order which makes our life order less. Just by governing our thoughts and directing them towards our purpose and goal, we can make our life more productive and effective. It requires sheer confidence to face the challenges and the dark times. It is all about resilience, the ability to bounce back when you hit the bottom. It is the comeback from a situation and arranging things back in the order.

And sometimes our missing pieces of puzzle are stored in the people we come across. We learn from them and take this piece from them and arrange in our life to gain back the order. That’s why unity is important. To become whole, to become complete. Life is the all about finding pieces and arranging back them in order to make it worth living.

I have been juggling a lot of things from April, after returning from the trip of Rajasthan. I am still to settle back to normal life after coming home. May be that’s why I am not able to read and interact much, recently. Just have to arranges things, the missing pieces, the jumbled pieces back in order.

This is my entry for A to Z challenge . It is already day 10 and it is on the letter ‘J’. ‘J’ is for Jumble. Rearrange the jumbled pieces in order.

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. Just hope that your jumbled pieces arrange back in order to make it meaningful. Have a great week ahead.

Let the good in you win

The bad is always heavier than the good. So bad drowns in oceans of time and goodness remains in air. Let the good in you be victorious. Happy Vijaya Dashami.

So this day is celebrated as the day on which Lord Ram killed Ravana. Ravana even though being so powerful and invincible, was killed by Lord Ram. It is not about being powerful, it is all about being good with the powers or without the powers. If Ravana had used his power for good, there have been many temples of Ravana. So don’t seek for power. Power comes with goodness. If you are good, you are powerful. There is always a battle in our brain, between the good and the bad. There often comes a situation in which you have to take a decision. Bad lures you with instant happiness, but the terms and conditions of bad are always hidden. Instant happiness is always temporary, which is followed by suffering and misery. After that you will regret your decision.

And on the other side, goodness will never give you any instant happiness. It will never lure you.  By following goodness you will obtain inner happiness. An act of self-satisfaction. You will put one step closer to yourself. To soul. You are the soul. And your body is the luggage that has to be carried for lifetime. Carry it faithfully.

For once in your lifetime, step out of your body. See it from a distance. It is nothing. Without your soul, it is just an house constructed with bones, muscles, neurons, arteries, veins etc.. You are dweller. You live in that body. To make your body happy is not the motive. To make yourself happy is the motive for living. Give up desires, take passion as life. Be good. Be the power. Be the leader. Let the good in you win. Happy Dusshera…

Your body is the vehicle, you, the soul, are the driver.

Thanks for reading.

Lead and make a deal with the situation

Not only countries, organizations and teams need a leader, but also a human body needs a leader to lead it in times of dark clouds, and the best leader for a body is the person who lives in it.

When it’s time to take any important decision, first of all we do is seek for an advice. Because we need options to make a decision. Even though we cannot predict the result of the decision, but we can analyze the outcome of the decision. The difference between what you have before taking the decision and what will you have after taking the decision is the ultimate input for this analysis. No, this difference is not measured in terms of numbers or in terms of gain. It is measured in terms of life. What impact this decision will have in the long run of your life is the real factor you have to look for. Even though if there is no path for taking a decision, take a decision and leave a trail.

Close your eyes. Mouth is the place where this balance is held. There are weights held on both sides of this centre. On one side it is our brain and on other side it is our heart. Now weigh them with mouth as centre. Sometimes our brain is more heavy and sometimes our heart is heavier. You have to decide. Your eyes are closed. You just have to justify the situation and take the decision.

Make a word. Your words will speak justice. Words of brain will easily fall in your mouth but words of heart will take sometime to reach your mouth as words of heart has to raise to reach the mouth. Wait for sometime while taking a decision. Listen to both the words of heart and brain. The words which open your eyes are heavier. Choose it. It’s the decision. Decision of your life.

Follow your passion. You are the leader. Lead your words to destination. Give a form to your words. Be the leader. To lead is to deal a situation, a situation which is jumbled. That’s why if you jumble a deal, it forms lead. So, start leading your body. You are not made to live under dark clouds of time. You are the rainbow. You are the leader.
