World is not Enough!

“If the son of Adam were given a valley full of gold, he would love to have a second one; and if he were given the second one, he would love to have a third, for nothing fills the belly of Adam’s son except dust.” Saheeh Bukhari : Volume 8, Book 76, Number 446

It was a typical day in the office and while returning home I was thinking about the people begging on the street. To live a nice life with family having good home in nice locality, mid-size car and a servant for house work, you will need Rs. 10 crore ( in India) for whole life. However, people are making fraud of 1000’s of Crore and running away from India. That money too is not enough for them. For some people, World is not enough! They want more and more but finally dirt fill their belly. There are as many as 14,800 multi-millionaires (having more than 60 Crore Rs.) in India, a report says. You will not find any of them sitting home. Most of them will be still working for unknown reasons. They all have typical mind set.

After a certain time, people start working for name, fame and position. Even though, they had enough for themselves but still they find new reasons for moving on with their work. They forget why actually they started earning money. Some people start working for their family, some for living a lavish life, their are some other who wanted to make others life better with their hard earned money. However, as time goes by, they forget their basic reason for earning money. They became more dedicated towards their work than to the cause for which they started earning. 

A written goal statement is a must to avoid such situations. Do not become machine or slave of your desires. By fulfilling your desires, you can never control your desires. By controlling them, you can fulfil your desires. There is no end of desires.  Make your desires your slave. There must be a point when we should start thinking about others too. Will it not be better if we start sharing our wealth after reaching a certain financial security.

There are many people who think earning too much money is bad! However, this is not true. Money is not bad, like everything else-its use can be good or bad. Earn as much money as you can using honest means. Spent it on poor and needy people for food, shelter, education and employment generation. If money is bad, do not keep it with you after earning. Give it to charity. They will happily take care of it. Certainly, money is not bad. Money is a one of the best thing you can have! It gives you power to help and makes life of others better. World richest man does not find it bad either. He is donating money for different cause. Bill and Melinda Gates foundation is doing amazing work towards saving child life and improving it in African and other so-called third world Countries.

Failures are good

We live in a world where only achievers and successful persons are recognized. Failures are highly undesirable and inadvisable. Not just society treat such persons who fail in some endeavor awfully but the person himself feels ashamed. No doubt success is great. But failure too has a great hidden side which very few appreciate or even know.

When you fail you break away from your routine daily life and find some free time for yourself. This time you can utilize in introspection and reason for your failure. Don’t waste this time in worrying and feeling dejected. Everyone fails, but you are not a failure until you give up. Greatness is not in never falling but in rising higher every time you fall. This is very precious time. Use it to start a fresh.

In daily routine life we are so occupied that we never get chance to think about our life, our priorities and the values. We became like a programmed machine. We forget what matters most for us when we initially started. Some people even forget to take a vacation and work continuously for years. A Failure gives you time to break away with this monotonous routine life. Use this time to remember what was most important for you? Ask yourself question: Is this type of life I wanted? This is the time to make a 360 degree turn if required. Else start preparing to turn your failure into bigger success by learning from it. Tension, worries and procrastination waste time and energy. Don’t waste time in worrying. It will not solve any problem. Meet Peoples who always encouraged you. Read inspirational books.

Every one of us is surrounded with small thinkers. These people demotivate you and create a doubt in your mind about your ability. Don’t listen to such people. Start Believing in your strength. We all have tremendous power hidden in our mind. This power only comes out when we faced with difficulties. Never give up. Don’t feel guilty. Human are born to make error. Forgive yourself and forget anything which makes you feel guilty. But don’t forget to learn from mistakes. Anyone can make a mistake; fool insist on repeating it. So don’t be a fool. Life teaches you lesson in harsh way. It is always better to learn from others mistake instead of making one.

Enjoy and cherish your failures as you cherish your success. Because failures make you strong. They give you time to think about yourself and most importantly they teach you a lesson.

Open Your Eyes

For deeply religious Christians, especially Catholics, the Bible is infallible. Everything written in it is true, according to them, even though everyone knows that the Bible supports the geocentric theory which was already proved wrong 500 years ago. Even today, many Christians believe that the earth is 6000 years old! Many Christians do not believe in the literal truth of the Bible at the present time, but they are still Christian because of social influence. They can better be termed as “festive Christians”, who are Christian just to celebrate the festivals and so as not to be left out of society. But those who have blind faith still feel the Bible is entirely scientific and a source of spirituality. Again, for them, everything written in the Bible is true. Such believers claim that the Bible has healing powers and can motivate you greatly to lead a good life. If you but read the Bible and apply some logic, you can very easily see how real and true their beliefs actually are.

Let’s look a passage from the Bible, an English translation of Mark:

{2:1} Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and

all the host of them. {2:2} And on the seventh day God

ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the

seventh day from all his work which he had made. {2:3}

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because

that in it he had rested from all his work which God created

and made.

 

The logical question that came to mind is, why did God need rest? On the one hand, he can do anything and is governing the whole universe in perfect harmony over billions of years; on the other hand, he gets tired by creating it! Moreover, if he is all-powerful, why would he do anything which would make him tired? Why can’t he just relax and enjoy? Who forced him to work and get tired? Is it his hobby?

Look at the world and its beauty; feel it and live it. Do not submit all your faculties to blind faith, and do not live a lame life. The world will be a much better place without bigotry and superstitions. Learn, educate, and search for the evidence before believing anything.

Meditation-To control Subconscious

While you are busy in reading text, simultaneously you are breathing, your heart pumping blood to all parts, your kidney is filtering your blood, your skin is sensing temperature and sending signal for warm or cold environment, your ears are hearing sounds, your eyes are not only reading but also overlooking the background, your hands holding the  mouse  by applying a constant pressure on it, many more things are going on inside your body  unnoticed without consciously thinking about it. All this is controlled by your senior silent friend known as subconscious. Your subconscious is driving you silently. Though it is not your enemy but an uneducated powerful friend. Your subconscious  run your whole body without disturbing you. It comprises of 90% of our brain and thus much powerful than your conscious brain-the thinking you.

All your instant reaction are directed from sub-conscious as there is no enough time for conscious to think and take decision. But sometimes we do have time yet we allow our subconscious to react on situation in anger. All this behavior can be change by having control over your subconscious.

Our subconscious does not understand words as our conscious do. Thus making a bright and happy picture trigger your subconscious to work towards that goal. Your subconscious understand feeling and emotion’s and pictures made in your mind. Use them to alter your behavior.

Meditation is art of awakening subconscious and to create a link with it. For meditation one needs calm place with dim or no light and loose outfit. Sit on the ground preferably or on any hard surface in comfortable posture. Cross leg is better. Give a name to your sub-conscious before starting the meditation.  Slowly take deep breath. Close your eyes and try to relax while thinking that you are part of universe and you and universe are one entity.

After 5 mins or when you start feeling relaxed, start talking to your subconscious. Think about what you want to change in your behavior or inside your body. For example: anger/ quitting smoking/ losing weight/ recovery from disease.

Repeat: I want to control my anger.

I don’t want to get angry on small issues.

If I will not be angry, it will make my life better. My family will be happy. My friends will be happy

Everyone will appreciate me. I will be a happier person.

So I don’t want to be angry. Max (name your subconscious) help me to control my anger.

It will make me happy.

Try to think of happy life which bring smile on your face. Make a picture in your mind of your family and friends being happy and appreciating you. Meditate for min. 10 min. daily in the morning. Within one week to ten days we will find difference in your behavior.

Make meditation a rule of life and follow daily. It enhances your capability and control.
