The fire in us is dying...

Ever felt the fire in us is not staying as long as it is expected? Ever felt we quit digging 3 feet from gold? Ever felt the grass is green on the other side of valley?

My life is full with these questions. My mind is like a pendulum that swings from one desire to another, and by making sure, I just don’t stand to achieve them. This is just the feeling that can happen to any one of you? We are all creatures that live in the past and live on memories.. We just feel our past was better than present, and we worry our future will not be as bright as our past.

You seen the new add of Maruti Ritz car? just the same is true with our lives, we got choices - but we end up selecting a compromise. The patterns of thoughts that go through us are also the same, just as i was thinking - to stay in job or to build the business? to buy some land or get a new car ? To travel abroad or stay with family? go out selling or watch TV ?

The truth is, even if we know what’s best for us, we refrain from doing it, because of the fear we have. I can tell you, I have been the laziest boy for the last 4 months or so, going to office and coming back home, doing nothing that my mind speaks off, I had the time for all the things in the world, I just did not want to blog as well. For a moment I thought whether the fire in me is dying???

I am quite sure, people who have made places are the ones who have controlled this emotion very well and knew how to dust the butt and move on.. I now realize how foolish was I to waste my time doing useless things and bore my brains...

Its when your goals are bringing fruit to you alone that you tend to become lazy. The smarter way to get rid of this is to ensure the end product of your goals is service to other people - so you can’t stop working. I am of the impression that you don’t remain stagnant anywhere, either you advance or you recede. So if you are doing nothing for the position you are holding now, it means you are gradually wiping yourselves out.

The only way to keep the fire in you flaming is to add more oil into it. We need to reach out to the next opportunity that comes our way. Take up all the tasks we got, work as hard as ever, because we never know - a small little work can give us a huge opening that can change the way people see things.

Sometimes I feel, the greatest oil that I had to move forward was the ridicule and put down I used to get from my friends. Guess what, it was too in a magic circle, that when I stopped doing things, my friends stopped teasing me and it led to kill my fire. Now that I need to ignite my fire, because I am pretty sure, my fire is going to warm many a lives....

Most things in life falls in a cycle.. either you keep gaining or you keep losing..

Not just wealth, but almost all things in life falls in a cycle. God has made things in a special way so that if we try to create an imbalance on any attribute, it reflects in some other attribute. Considering this aspect, we can form a perspective which is good or bad.
           Now how can we define a cycle :- it is something that is connected by a chain, but something that keeps spiraling. Life's cycle is not a closed entity - its a spiral i.e. if you start gaining then you have a better chance to keep gaining. Similarly the vice verse.
           Lets take the case of hunger and weight gain. What we naturally see is that people who are obese keep gaining in weight and people who are lean keep loosing weight. How can this theory be explained? Any idea? Simple when you are hungry -> you eat food -> stomach digests the food -> Energy is released to the body.
When hungry and you overeat, then the stomach buys in resources to digest the extra food resulting in a bigger stomach and extended intestine. Now what happens is that when the stomach gets bigger it tempts the person to consume more food, and as he consumes the stomach keeps expanding. This is why people who are in the cycle of gaining weight keep gaining. Similarly you can think of what must be going around with lean people.
    Not just food and stomach, almost all things in life goes to the person who has already achieved them. Be it money, recognition, fame, promotion in job and even the negatives like accident, loss, theft, bad times etc.
When you know the working of this cycle and the mantra to change the spiral you can succeed no matter what odds are against you.
Darkness cannot be broken by removing darkness, Sadness cannot be relieved by being less sad and Poverty cannot be alleviated being less broke. To break the cycle you need to apply yourselves with energy that can help you change states.
     Rich gets richer and poor gets poorer. If the poor person has to become less poor - then he definitely need to get rich. Its well said but tough done. From there on, its a spiral - it may be half the effort than to change states.
 Ever felt like you are not a super achiever, then this is the right time to act. This is the time of your life to make things happen - get into the upward spiral and cruise along. Then all the positives will keep flowing to you in the form of money, recognition or the coveted promotion.
Now you have all the reason not the feel bad when you are depressed, because you know what to do! and how to go about doing it!
Always remember - The thing that breaks darkness is Light. Let the light shine in your life.

Dont take things for granted and dont work like a dog to secure your descendant’s future...

I may have to brush through my learning through the theory of technological evolution to make a bold and weird statement here. Remember me saying, everything and anything you do today is evolution? Which even means, even if you sit simply – you are evolving yourselves and your bundle of future generations.
      These are findings that cant digest all brains, bold because we never had the courage to think that way and weird because they are the realities we are going to live with...
      Life can be thought of like a giant wheel, the one with fortune in a basket and trouble in all other. We all pray to that day to sit on the fortune basket; some people do but 99% of others left with no other choice.
You needn’t take things for granted, if you are poor today, that doesn’t mean you can be rich tomorrow. If you are healthy today, that doesn’t mean you cant die of illness.
      The wheel of life keeps spinning around and someday you need to jump out from the current basket – why does that happen, let me explain.

Scenario 1: You are a person with adequate health, you live in highly polluting and contaminated surroundings and you hope to improve your health by consuming some health tablets and pills – what happens (1) your health definitely improves, you become a step ahead of your peers and (2) your body evolves into the new profile – the one which needn’t adapt to the polluting surroundings.
     What we see here is that, when you push things to happen – the ones which had to happen automatically does not happen. When we consume things that make us healthy, we stop the process of the body to generate and tolerate the polluting atmosphere. The result being a weaker race. Our heir becomes less competent to our peers to adapt to the then atmosphere.

Scenario 2: Saving tigers. Recently saw an advt that says there are only 1411 tigers in India and we need to act soon. If tigers are facing extinction, then god has designed it to be that way – we all know that the entire weight of earth remains the same, when more humans are being born, naturally more species have to be wiped out. If we try to do something to stop the nature’s will, then we are inviting more trouble.
    Lets think of this as, if tigers have to be saved, then we need more forests which means more land. If man were to plant all the trees to make the forest, leave alone the success – it leaves a greater carbon footprint. Finally doing more harm than benefit.

Scenario 3: Conserving fuel – We all read campaigns to save fuel, save energy. Use cycle instead of cars and reduce petrol consumption. This is absolute rubbish. Its better to invent newer sources of energy fearing the wipeout of fuel than conserving it. If man had no fear to the decreasing supply of petrol, he would not have invested his energy to research on newer and greener fuels. A day will come when we will use water to run automobiles, when we have no more drop of petrol left.
    What we see around is man becoming proactive to make or design his future generation. The only thing that man may fail to invent is his son. The reason being, if we keep saving things for tomorrow, we miss out on the opportunity of our heir to invent something better.
If we keep taking precautionary methods to keep us from falling ill, we seldom give our immunity system to rebuild itself – resulting in a fragile inheritor. Those days are not far, when the son of the beggar will stay healthier than yours, because he is the one who is in the rain and sun and the body copes up to rebuild his gene.
    This is reason why the theory of technological evolution is so important. If you sit simply, you group and regroup your body and mind which then is taken over by your son.
   Its so very exciting to build a smarter and better race, only then it will become a positive evolution. Otherwise I fear, we will be the ones that are going to face extinction soon..

Its Introspection time...All you want is all you have asked for..

How many of you really believe in the law of attraction. The law that brings prosperity, wealth or love. Yes, its quite true that you can bring what you think all day long. If you think prosperity – you attract prosperity, if you think debt – you attract debt. Now if its that simple, then why don’t everyone practice this simple law and turn their life 180 degree?
    The law holds good, just like a magnet, your mind attracts whatever it dreams off – but there is a condition. This is the most exciting news you are going to listen, something that can lift your spirit, something that you were searching for the last many years.
   We all know our mind can be broadly divided into conscious mind, sub conscious mind and unconscious mind. Now the power of subconscious mind is 1000 times more powerful than conscious mind, same is the case with unconscious mind with subconscious. But there is a problem, there is only one language the subconscious or lower unconscious mind accepts – the language of binary. Unlike conscious mind which can carry out complex arithmetic and language translations – lower minds can only read 1 or 0.
   Now what is the binary coding for the lower minds – very simple, it can only read two decision statements – either YES or NO. Eg: “I can drive a car” – 1, “I cannot sing” – 0, “I can take my family to dinner” – 1, “I can...” -1, “I cannot...” – 0. Now when you write down these codes into a sheet of paper, it will show something like this  10110. This has been carrying on for all the decisions you take. Now this unique code is what determines you, its that sum that makes you or breaks you.
   Suppose my arithmetic for the last 20 years looks like this  001010011011010101... and yours look like 1111001000111111..., the only difference might be one “1” or “0”, but that coding could make you super rich and me broke.
   The reality is that there is some unseen handshake made my all 3 minds, when that happens regularly, we become super achievers. I could explain the correlation of conscious and subconscious mind as simple as possible. The ability to set goals and to tenaciously dream is the character of conscious mind, but the person who makes that into reality is the subconscious mind. Now when your dreams are in the same direction that is when the law of attraction works wonders for you.
   I shall narrate it as a story than abstract words, suppose Mr.Ramesh, our hero is meeting up the richest man on the earth, he gets inspired and sets goal for becoming one like his role model. What the subconscious mind does is actually help him, makes sure all his resource are working with him to turn him into the worlds most richest man. Also the mind adds a “1” to the log.
    Next day, he sees a saint – doing some yoga on a deserted beach, he thinks in his mind – “Oh wow, what a life, he must be enjoying a freeman’s life, no tags attached..” Immediately the subconscious mind pulls all resources to help him become a saint. All what the subconscious mind knows is the help the conscious mind. Thus appends a “1” to the log, now since his previous two dreams are clashing the mind adds a “0” also to the log – ie “110” in total.
    Few days later, our Ramesh sees a gorgeous girl in town, then his mind wavers and then decides that he want to marry that girl. Poor subconscious mind, puts together all resources to help him achieve his dream, appends a “1” and “0” to the log.
   Now the code becomes “11010” – what has happened in the process is that Ramesh was giving commands to his lower mind that were contradicting his previous dream statements. This results in total confusion and slippage of personal success. Only a person with (“1111111”) consecutive ones for a short period can become successful. When you make a vision statement, the mind starts work for the same. Your next command should always be to assist the work, only then mental faculties become alive and take you the rightful destination.
   The major reason that law of attraction does not work is not because the law is incorrect, its because you don’t know how to use it. We are all situated at the footsteps of equal opportunity, your success till today is history – tomorrow is the same for you and me, if I start keeping stepping stones, there is no reason that I should live in darkness...
