I'm in mood Part-2

Source: GS Virdi's personal blog

When I c u around me,
U make my heart skip a beat.
I'd never thought that I'd ever feel like this,
Feels as if some excitement is engulfing me.

When I c u around me...
Butterflies dance in my stomach,
and I don't know how to control them.
I want to look into ur eyes,
and wish to see myself in them.
I want u to be mine,
with ur heart and mind both.

When I c u around me...
I want to feel that touch of ur hands,
soft like cotton and warm like kiss.
Ur eyes r just like two big pearls,
I can drown in ur deep angel eyes.
with u everywhere on my mind,
I can't think anything except u.
Storms of loneliness engulf me when Ure gone,
Loneliness sickens me heart when u say good bye.

When I c u around me....
U smile comforts my helpless heart,
that heart which is torn by cruel world.
Ur smile reveals a deep mystery in it,
and colors my world as u bloom.

When I c u around me....
the only thing I can c is U,
I've lost myself bcoz now my is U.
If u give ur heart to me in luv,
then v both will live together,
and will live forever....
in each other's hearts.

I'm in mood Part-1

I just felt like sharing all this, I'm in mood today :)

Subject: Re: Falling In Love Quotes
Message: Very nice quotes :)

I would like to make a small correction in one of ur quotes here:
"The worst thing a guy can do is; To make a girl Fall for him when he has no intention of loving her truly."

It's really sad to see that Indian culture is almost dead in youngsters now-a-days, everybody talks of luv, they all know the definition of luv, but... but... but nobody wants to accept the fact that luv demands your:
Unconditional affection,
Attending responsibilities, and
Being committed.

Commitments now-a-day are like a bunch of words, guys will say it just to get close to a gal. Nobody can ever imagine that luv is not at all physical, everybody talks of luv, feelings, emotions of happiness and pain in luv... but they all forget that there are many couples who appear to be eternally happy just bcoz they are in luv.

I'd like to give an example of this: A L&Ten bought a bike, can't afford too much still he can't go lower then Pulsar150 bcoz that bike is bought to show-off (or say attach attention).

One fine day as he was driving to office at the speed of 80.... Zooooooooom went a Yamaha FZ153 (can cross the speed of 120 in 8Sec).

I bet the guy will feel sad, very sad, then he will also accelerate and try to catch that guy. But that sadness will remain somewhere hidden in the heart that he does not possess the best bike in the market.

As expected that guy will not cry, nor he will try to sell this one to buy a better bike, then what will he do? U will agree that the guy will simply try to fool himself by reminding better things about his Pulsar150... on the same time he will try to ignore the fact that his bike is not the fastest one.

True???

Just one question: Why the hell that same guy will not luv his girl in the same way? He will always keep looking for better opportunities and finding a more beautiful one....

Dual standards of Youngsters.... I will again say Indian culture is dying in almost all youngsters now-a-days.

If u also decide to keep the culture and parental teachings alive... then just be Human, I agree nobody will give u Billions of $, nobody will put garland in ur neck, u may never come on TV for this, nor any newspaper will talk about u.

But that self-consciousness.... will always make u smile, happy, and content. Last but not the least.... I will always respect u, no matter wherever u are, no matter if I know u're good or not... I always will respect real "Humans" who are not like irresponsible animals.

Can u pledge to urself and help make our India beautiful... as beautiful as it was centuries ago. Can u keep the education and culture both alive inside ur mind and heart?

I'm trying... from past 10yrs... and I'm happy that I've always done better then what I did yesterday :)

PS: Plz excuse my spellings.....

Nobody fools the "Fear"...

Source: http://virdigs.wordpress.com
We can fool all our emotions/feelings; provided if we can give a good reason for it. We all give some kinda reasons to fool our self and feel better about unpleasant things happening in our life. We can find a reason to luv, hate, be happy, feel sad, cry, laugh, smile, frown, etc and etc.... But the only emotion u can't fool is "Fear", u can't remove the fear by just reminding urself with any reason.

In a way the "Fear" is immune to reasoning, u can find 100s of reasons... and u can create another 100s of reasons... but u just can't reason the "Fear" away from u. Bcoz the fear originates from within our self... we can't handle it with the Reasoning. It is just the same thing as u can't cure ur fever (internal) using any ointment (external).

Fear is only of two types:
1. Somebody else's fear, adopted by u.
2. Your own fear, fed nicely by u.
In both cases the reason of bringing fear in ur heart/mind/life is same... fear of losing something/some1 who is present in ur life. In short... its the "Fear of Loss". We're all are created to get destroyed 1 fine day, still we all pay useless attention & luv of possessing things we have in life. Everybody talks of being "selfless" human, but still none of us are the way we all should be. It's perfectly okie... we're all humans and we all have a right to make occasional mistakes too. There's nothing bad in making mistakes, bcoz the result of our mistakes gives us that unforgettable lesson.

Prevention is better then cure, sounds familiar quote? I know... now have a look on things which help u do the prevention. U want more, u create more doors for fear to enter. U expect more, u create more windows for fear to creep in. U wish more, n u create more hammers which will break ur walls (discipline). I bet that the path of prevention looks tough, but nothing says that this path is impossible. U also know that u have that strength to walk on that path, and no path is having a rule that u are not allowed to fall & getup again. So... :)

U will have all clear & strong reasons of bringing-in the fear, but to take that fear out... u need to have a separate route & strategy. Reasoning may work for all of us in almost all situations, but for fear.... the only available vaccine known to human brain is "Hope & Faith", its really essential to have equal proportion of both these meds to cure Fear.

Our life has turned hectic, and nobody gets out of it alive anyway. U may agree that we've become quick enough to find/give a reason of anything happening to us. U can find a good reason to fear from ur fear, or else u may find a good reason to not to fear from the fear. In both cases the fear remains in there, so its better to think carefully about the option u may wish to select. Emotions which take birth directly inside us are just like our shadow, u can run from ur shadow; but u can't ever run away from it.

I agree that we may not think clearly when we're stuck by fear, but "no thinking" is also not the solution. It is not necessary that we need to be stuck by fear 1st, we can always keep those two medicines ready in our closet of life. We need to really have faith in the supernatural god, and our strong faith will strengthen the hope inside us.

I agree that nothing bad's gonna happen to u if u will not have "hope/faith", but on the other hand u will agree that nothing good's gonna happen too. We cannot reason fear away. If we could reason the fear; we would find that there is very little to fear... because most of fears originate within us.

Have a fearless day ahead,

God takes too long to answer prayers?

Heya Friends,

U must have said any one of these things recently: "My prayers remain unanswered", "God takes too long to answer prayers", "God does not listen to my prayers", "Why things don't happen as I wish"... I don't know about u but I... run away from the scene whenever somebody says these kinda negative things.

While talking to my dear friend piyush here in office I just had this thought today, "God (the supernatural) created everything and is monitoring us all as we breathe in and breathe out. How is it possible that such a supernatural will delay in listening / answering to prayers of his children?"

Please don't think that I had found the answer of the question above, I'm just trying to think by keeping myself in his shoes. I'm just feeling that let's suppose that we asked for something (in life), and let's say that u immediately got it too. Then how would the world have been in this situation? U're waiting for the train... getting bored in that underground station... just wished to see an elephant in front of u... and PUFFFF!!! u got that elephant infront of u there. Watta scene.... A huge elephant infront of u in an underground metro station.... wow!

Now just think carefully, and be a responsible human while thinking... How would that be? Don't u feel that this "getting prayers answered" immediately is TOO SOON kinda thing? Will u get that precious feeling of "achievement in life" if u get everything in seconds? Don't u feel that having patience and then getting our prayers answered is a better & wise thing to do?

I strongly believe and say:
There is "No" unanswered prayers, just the answer is "NO" at that time.

Why do we hurry up everything in life, not only this... we also want God, Life, time, mother nature, and other human beings to hurry up along with us? Is all this hurry and restlessness REALLY required to be happy and content in life? We all are strong enough to handle more then 90% of our problems in life, for remaining 10% of difficult problems the god had given us friends, relatives, teachers, guides, and angels which appear and disappear in our life from time to time.

Now.... don't u feel that we all should work harder to be more stronger in handling our restlessness also? I bet god would be more proud to see his children growing up like this. What do u say? :)

Blessings of luv, peace, happiness, prosperity, and a healthy life ahead.

I can sleep when da wind blows.....

Years ago, a farmer owned land along the Atlantic seacoast.

He constantly advertised for hired hands. Most people were reluctant to work on farms along the Atlantic . They dreaded the awful storms that raged across the Atlantic , wreaking havoc on the buildings and crops.

As the farmer interviewed applicants for the job, he received A steady stream of refusals.

Finally, a short, thin man, well past middle age, approached the farmer. "Are u a good farm hand?" the farmer asked him. "Well, I can sleep when the wind blows," answered the little man.

Although puzzled by this answer, the farmer, desperate for help, Hired him. The little man worked well around the farm, busy from dawn to dusk, and the farmer felt satisfied with the man's work.

Then one night the wind howled loudly in from offshore. Jumping out of bed, the farmer grabbed a lantern and rushed next door to the hired hand's sleeping quarters. He shook the little man and yelled, "Get up! A storm is coming! Tie things down before they blow away!"

The little man rolled over in bed and said firmly, "No sir. I told u, I can sleep when the wind blows."

Enraged by the response, the farmer was tempted to fire him on the spot. Instead, he hurried outside to prepare for the storm.

To his amazement, he discovered that all of the haystacks had been covered with tarpaulins. The cows were in the barn, the chickens were in the coops, and the doors were barred.

The shutters were tightly secured. Everything was tied down. Nothing could blow away.

The farmer then understood what his hired hand meant, so he returned to his bed to sleep while the wind blew.

******

When u're prepared spiritually, mentally, & physically, then u have nothing to fear in ur life. Can u sleep when the wind blows in ur life?

Inevitable Fear...

Hindi:
Jab tumko deikha, tab tumhe jaan-ney se darta tha,
Jab tumko jaana, tab tumhe chahney se darta tha,
Jab tumko chaaha, tab tumhe piyar karney se darta tha,
Abb jab mai tumko piyar karta hu... Tumko khonay se darta hu.

English:
When I saw you, I was afraid to know you,
When I knew you, I was afraid to like you,
When I liked you, I was afraid to Love you,
Now that I Love you, I'm afraid to lose you...

Magic of Luv...

"The minute I heard my first love story... I started looking for you, not knowing how false that story was."

"Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They were in each other's heart all along."

"Love is what makes two people sit in the middle of a bench when there is plenty of room at both ends"

"The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a growing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life."

"There is no feeling more comforting and consoling than knowing you are right next to the one you love."

"If I could be anything in the world I would want to be a teardrop because I would be born in your eyes, live on your cheeks, and die on your lips."

"For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul."

"When I say, "I love you," it's not because I want you or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman... with whom my heart is in love."

"Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are."

"You can't stop loving or wanting to love because when its right, it's the best thing in the world. When you're in a relationship and it's good, even if nothing else in your life is right, you feel like your whole world is complete."

"Here is the deepest secret nobody knows.
Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
And the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
Which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide.
And this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart.
I carry your heart.... and I carry it in my heart."

"Everybody except you..... Knows I love you".

:-)

Suicide By Ants!

This is mind blowing.....

Summer is the season which brings lots of beautiful things along with it, but the problem of ants is inevitable too. Apart from unhealthy conditions created by the mess of ants, I don't think people can see the trails of ants roaming around in their house. At least I can't see them roaming in my house. I strongly believe in no-violence but I'm forced to use insecticide on ants.

Somewhere on the internet I saw this mind blowing idea, and I luv'd the logic behind it....

Take baking soda and Icing sugar. Mix two equal portions of baking soda and icing sugar together in a dry container. Sprinkle this mixture where the anthill or their trail is. Ants cannot resist the icing sugar mix, and they will quickly take the mixture away.

Now for the kicker..... Ants do not have the ability to expel gas; so the gas created by the baking soda will make them blow up and they'll die.

Good Lord... All my senses are blown-up tooo..... if anybody of u would like to try-out this idea on ants in ur home, then I'd strongly suggest that u should Hide Alllllllll Antacids from the house so that none of affected ants can survive.

Wooo Hooo.... :P

Magic of Luv...

When love touches me, I speak in silence

"I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you."

Every selfish deserves to be loved.

I won't change myself for u, unless u r willing to change urself for me.
If u're willing to change, then I'm ready to initiate that change for u.

Lately I had an interesting conversation with one of my dear friend in office, he was feeling a bit low and maybe that's why he said: "Dada, this life had become so much fast that people have forgotten our Indian values, ethics, respect for others, and most importantly... people had forgotten how to luv."

I could feel that pain and disappointment in his words, the feeling of getting hurt was so clear in everything he said. I understood the fact that... no matter what I know, no matter what's my level of experience in life, no matter what I say to him at that moment.... nothing is gonna help him. I was just quiet and kept listening, at that moment I did my duty of being a good listening ear to my friend.

But few doubts crept into my head, and they all remained till the conversation finished: "Why do we change, is it really required, should that change be permanent, did we kneeled down to change?"

First negative thing I feel we all do is to think that we're compromising ourselves infront of life. I would say that when this life is our's then why should a person think that he/she is helpless infront of their own life?! Why can't we (educated, 21st century, & experienced humans) learn to smile and cherish everything we are getting in this life!

I agree that it's not easy to smile when we're hurt, but on the other hand I feel: "Don't we have the right and strength to smile whenever we want to do so?" It's 100% possible that nobody will give u an award for strongly hiding ur pains, but neither u'll be awarded for crying out loud when u're in pain. As u'll not be rewarded in any of these situations, don't u feel that the best thing is to enjoy urself in "all" possible ways and in all situations in life? I'll write something more in this post.....

I believe Life is Beautiful.... and I still need a very strong reason to disbelieve it :)

How To Improve Ur Life

Gud News....

Friends I'm able to compile the "BEST" of points on HOW TO IMPROVE our life
These points are based on my personal experience...

Personality:

1. Don't compare ur life with other's. U have no idea what their journey was all about.

2. Don't keep/carry negative thoughts about situations u can't control. Instead invest ur energy in the positive moments of "Present".

3. Don't over do; keep within ur limits.

4. Don't take urself so seriously; no one else does.

5. Don't waste ur precious energy in gossip.

6. Dream more while u are awake, this way u'll not forget ur important dreams.

7. Envy is a waste of time. U already have all u need.

8. Forget issues of the past.
Don't remind ur partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin ur "present's" happiness.

9. Life is too short to waste time hating any1. Don't hate people.

10. Make peace with ur past so that it won't spoil ur present.

11. No one is in charge of ur happiness..... except u.

12. Realize that life is a school and u r here to learn.
Problems r simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons u learn will last a lifetime.

13. Smile and laugh more...

14. U don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

15. Negativity starts with u.
Dont respond to a friends happy greeting of good morning, how was ur weekend?, with .weekend was too short and I have to come back here to work.

16. Be happy, be grateful, But dont be content. There are a lot more others, who would sacrifice anything.... to be in ur place.

17. Be positive, even in down times, some may think Ure insane, but they would want to be like u.

Community:

18. Call ur family often.

19. Each day give something good to others.

20. GOD is in charge of everybody's actions, ur duty is to Forgive every1 for everything unpleasant they did to u.

21. Whenever possible.... Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6

22. Everyday.... Try to make at least three people smile who come in contact with u.

23. Dont allow urself to fall into compromising situations, u may live to regret some of them.

24. What other people think of u is none of UR business. U cannot control how others feel.

25. Ur job/office/boss will not take care of u when u are sick. Ur family and friends will.... Stay in touch with them.

Life:

26. Put GOD first in anything and everything that u think, say and do in life.

27. GOD is having a solution to all the problems and hurdles in our life. REALLY!!!!

28. Time can heal everything.

29. Do the right things, ur heart can really tell if the thing u're doing is ethically right or wrong.

30. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. Nothing will ever remain the same in life.

31. No matter how u feel, get up, dress up and show up ur smile.

32. Believe that: The best is yet to come....

33. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

34. When u get up alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.

35. If u know GOD u will alwayssssss be happy. So, be happy.

36. Life is all about choices; Think before u make that choice, & when u do, u will be happy for it.

While u try to practice all..... or most of the above points, never forget to share this knowledge with the people u care for. Not only will it enrich UR life, but also of those who r around u.

God Luvs all, n I'm trying to do the same.... :)

Kabhi Kabhi...

Meri khushi bhi tu, meri ruswaaie tu,
Meri insaniyat tu, meri khuda-e bhi tu,
Tu he meri mehfilein, meri tanhaie bhi tu,
Jis jagah tu nahi, waha kay sannatey mein tu,
Dil dooba rehta hai tere khayalon mein har-su...
Na jaaney kab unsey mulaqat karwaiga eh-khuda tu.

Life is so beautiful...

Tough times & struggles are storms in life,
When people face strong winds in their life....
Few of them make walls around them,
Few of them make shelters for themself,
but few fools like me make lots of windmills.

Struggles are to polish us, I don't know about u... but at lease I never complain when I know that the outcome of this struggle will transform me into something much better "than" what I am right now. :)

I do understand that it's human nature to complain about the pains we face in life. The sad thought comes to our mind without any such intention of thinking sadly. But... but.... but... I can bet that we all have that strength to control our mouth, and so everybody can stop complaining about struggles they face.

There's nothing wrong in complaining about unwelcome struggles in life, but it is completely possible to stop saying out the complaints we have due to tough times.

I'm +33yrs now, and only after crossing this much time in my life I'm able to gain this wisdom & strength. I would say that there's nothing "Late" in life, I agree that there were times when I used to keep my mouth shut so that I should not complain... and on the same time quietly a few tears used to roll down my cheeks. Those days of struggle in growing up was an unforgettable stage in my life, but after gaining strength over my weakness... today it appears as if gaining this strength was much more easier then what I used to think.

Damn I'm talking so impractical??? but I'm amazed with the fact that we all have this strength in us. Why would u believe this stranger whom u had never seen, nor u might see me in real life. Okie... how about sharing ur pieces of struggle with me, maybe we together can overpower the pains of struggle. Just try it, I'm sure u'll never lose in this gamble :)

May the almighty lord keep u and ur luv'd ones blessed, safe & healthy.

Sin and Faith: What's common??

While talking to one of my dear friend in my office, I just had this thought. This guy is not a old time friend, he’s my colleague but now we’re friends!

As I was listening to his unhappiness faced in life, I got this thought. What’s common in Sin & Faith? U can stop reading and close ur eyes to think the answer... Otherwise I’m gonna tell u.

A common thing in Sin & Faith is the single alphabet ‘I’ standing in the heart of both words. As I realized the depth of that answer given by my heart… I was silently surprised. Let’s talk about what I think of this heart (I).

Sin:: U will find ‘I’ in the heart of sin, and this I will make u do a lot of things which eventually bring the other two characters (S and N) together. Before u can ever realize the outcome, the ‘I’ in the heart… would have already made u complete the word “Sin”. With that u also acquire the basic qualification of being called as Sinner :).

Either now u can ask for forgiveness and pledge that u will try ur best to not let this happen again in ur life. Else like others u can continue living happily being a sinner and keep making a million more sins to hide the one u made earlier. I believe that we all here on the internet are educated enough to select the best path in our life.

Faith:: U will find the same ‘I’ in the heart of faith also, but here his heart will make u flexible, soft spoken, kind, and super strong to trust the unseen god. In previous case the ‘I’ need not do lot of hard work to bring the S and N together, but in this case ur complete dedication is used to bring FA and TH together.

The heart is same, the ‘I’; but the outcome is totally different. The heart is same, the ‘I’; but “You” will be a total different person in both these situations. By the way have u thought about differences and comparison also????

Faith: It needs a massive strength of faith to stay steady in life

Sin: U can always expect to escape the tough parts of life if u Sin.

Faith: Will take u farther away from ‘I’.

Sin: Concentrates on the core of heart, the ‘I’.

Faith: U loses everything if it (faith) is gone.

Sin: U gain happiness & contentment if it (sin) is gone.

Faith: Makes u the follower, follower of the almighty creator.

Sin: Makes u the leader, leader of the world which starts from ‘I’ and ends on ‘I’.

What more can u think??? I’m waiting for more additions into the list above. Please do contribute.

Giving Respect: The Importance & Rewards

Today I just feel like talking about a single word “Respect”. In my lifespan I had seen a very big and unavoidably very important role of this word. U may ignore to give respect in life, but u can’t ignore the ‘after effects’ of ignoring (or giving) the respect.

I can say that: Everybody had fallen in luv at least once in life. Leaving exceptions, those who close their heart and life (won’t comment on the reason; could be something too personal); there is no place of luv in their life. So let’s just have a look on the pattern with which we luv a person…

If we see closely, then we always fall in luv after getting attracted to a person. We get attracted bcoz the person possesses something which mysteriously had made a huge impact on us. In other words: When u luv someone, u respect him or her for being “the person” that they really are, not the person that u want them to be.

After falling in luv, u may want to make some changes in ur partner’s behavior, thoughts, actions, attitude, lifestyle, or whatever…. But the fact is that u had fallen in luv with that person for being what he/she is. So please never forget to respect the real identity of ur near and dear ones.

U can only luv someone completely if u respects him or her. Respect is like a stream of fresh water and without respect; don’t expect luv and kindness to grow in anybody’s life. Once u make a change in ur life by trying to respect everybody around u, I can assure that the amount of respect which u will get back in ur life… will make ur life much more beautiful then having a million dollars in ur bank account.

Giving and getting back respect can fill ur life with priceless “contentment”, whereas ANY amount of money can never do that. I wish if I can emphasis on the words “Any Amount” in a way I’m feeling right now. Something in me is telling me that everybody of us knows that giving respect and a kind smile will cost us nothing, but the question is that why we still are not able to share this free gift with all those who are around us?

Respect also contributes to the person that u really are; your image is greatly built by how u respect others and how u get that respect back. Ur abilities to luv the other person, is enhanced (or reduced) depending on how much respect u give to the other person.

U’ll agree with me here: Everybody luv to talk to kind hearted people who have good words to give. Once u taste the sweetness in the stream of “Respect”, I can say that everybody who honestly tries to give respect… will become such a person, with a beautiful heart.

My wife and my adorable friend (Mashu) have made such a beautiful impact in my life, that I don’t even remember the last day/time when I complained to god about my life. First of all I would like to express my deepest thanks and endless praises of almighty for blessing me with presence of such beautiful people in life. Secondly I would like to express millions of thanks to all of u for respecting me for what I am.

Beautiful Article: Guru Arjan Dev

I was so very impressed to see a beautiful article (on Guru Arjan Dev) posted by my wife on her blog Ganappa. I can tell u a lot about Guru Arjan Dev, but I would prefer u to read the original blog. She wrote it beautifully, and here is what I want u to do in ur life to get the blessings.....

The reason I was impressed is that she came to knew about this Sikh Guru named "Arjan Dev" a few weeks back only, and she did all kinda research on the net to know more about him. In spite of  being from a different background she took such a deep interest in Guru Arjan Dev's history that she dug up all possible information.

The adorable name given to the title of the blog is Forbear, forgive: Guru Arjan Dev and this was the Exact message he gave to this world. By quietly accepting all the torture done by mughals on him, the guru gave the message that the one who accepts to bear the torture is much more stronger then the one who is torturing. The bearer is much more stronger to forgive the one who is the reason of the pain, with his silence the guru shattered the ego of those who used to call them self most powerful.

I had posted a blog "Survival of the fittest" (SoF) in which I had talked about the wrong thought which we are having in our minds. I still say that our family life does not have any reason to think that we have to bring SoF in it. I bet that after reading everything about Guru Arjan Dev u will agree to the fact that: From centuries... we Indians have been Defying Darwin's theory of "Survival of the fittest".

Believe in the beauty of life, have trust in all actions of god. Keep ur faith strong, that whatever god had given is the "best" and the "only" thing u need in ur life to keep it beautiful. Luxuries are always tempting, but they all are temporary too. Whereas whatever god gave to us as a gift, is source of permanent happiness/contentment.

We are the smartest creation of god, don't degrade & insult urself by behaving like animals who are competing with every other animal in their species.

Stop thinking that we have to compete in all spheres of our life, otherwise u will never have enough of time to enjoy the real beauty of this life.  If u were also supposed to behave like animals, then why the hell god created u intelligent and so much different then animals? I hope u realize that these actions will insult ur almighty creator, and u would not like to insult ur creator with ur immature behavior.

Those who're running in top positions in SoF's rat-race, will call a person like me a Loser. But... I'm proud to be a loser, bcoz I'm a human... not a competing animal like them :)

I believe that "It's never late to correct our mistakes, provided u accept that u made the mistake." Who are u anyway..... I hope u're a human like me too.

Don't Waste Life

I would rather be ashes than dust!

I would rather prefer that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze; than it should be stifled by dry rot.

I would rather be a superb meteor but temporary with every atom of me in a magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.

As I strongly believe that the proper function of man is to live, not just exist.

I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time to best, in a way it(time) really deserves.

Wasting time = Wasting ur life.

Survival of the fittest

Herbert Spencer coined the phrase, "survival of the fittest." Herbert Spencer (who coined the term) and Charles Darwin. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survival_of_the_fittest

I’m nowhere concerned/connected with ecological study, but the reason I’m still using the term “Survival of the Fittest” (SoF) is that I was made aware of this term by a colleague of mine in the office just few days back. Man… our life is based on SoF!! was his words, and I was totally shocked.

Bcoz what I knew about this term was that SoF was used to describe the evolution theory for species (animals) and their way of natural selection of evolution. But how the hell this term became applicable from animals to Human beings of 21st century?

After talking to many of my friends I realize that due to the fast pace (our lifestyle), people had started believing that the life is competition. I tried to place my belief that competition maybe applicable for work/office, but I found that people (Less then 40yrs of age) strongly believe that SoF is applicable to their family life too.

This makes me very sad to see that they are competing with their loved ones & strangers both, which comes to a conclusion that the present life they are living does not reveals much difference between Family & Colleagues. Sad!!

Why are we competing anyway? was my question to them. In reply I got many heavy weight words like: Promotion, money, success, happiness, attention, prestige, social status, etc. But my question still remains unanswered, WHY? I bet that even after achieving any of those heavy words(targets) the person will not stop. Once you think that life is a competition, and then it means everything in this universe is your competitor.

I’m trying to make people believe that we are not animals who need to compete in order to survive. But it does not makes much difference as they all remember things for some time, and then they’re back into the self-started rat race.

Are u also the one who had self-started this competition (race) for urself???? Planning to stop now, now or it will become too late. Stop being ur own enemy, we’re not competitors, we are educated humans.

Blessings to all.

Test of Three

Socrates came upon an acquaintance that ran up to him excitedly and said, “Do you know what I just heard about one of your students?”

“Just a minute,” Socrates replied. “Before you tell me I’d like you to pass a little test. It’s called the Test of Three.
The first test is Truth. Are you sure that what you will say is true?
“Oh no,” the man said, “Actually I just heard about it.”
“So you don’t really know if it’s true, Socrates said. Now let’s try the second test, the test of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my student something good?”
“No, on the contrary..” “So,” Socrates interrupted, “you want to tell me something bad about him even though you’re not certain it’s true?” The man shrugged, rather embarrassed.
Socrates continued. “You may still pass though, because there is a third test, the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my student going to be useful to me at all?”
“Well it ..no, not really..”

“Well, concluded Socates, “If what you want to tell me is neither True nor good nor ever Useful, why tell it to me at all?” The man was defeated and ashamed.

This is the reason Socrates was held in such high esteem.

Ordering Correctly.

I don’t know what are you expecting from this title, let’s guess what I’m gonna talk about here? Will I talk about correct ways of praying? Difference between Right and Wrong kind of prayers? Give some lecture about Praying? Remind you about the importance of Prayers?

I’m not planning to do anything like that, I myself is bored of lectures. I strongly believe that there’s nothing like wrong way of praying, then why did I selected a title like “Praying correctly”?? In fact I’m having something else on my head at the moment; I’m planning to connect this situation with practical life.

Like everybody else, u also must have faced lots of struggles, u get tired of them, u said a prayer Oh lord, gimme a good life, and ur faith hopes that the prayer reaches the god, u wait for the prayer to get answered, u wait and wait, and as the patience weakens the faith; u start believing that god is not listening to ur prayers. U feel ignored and lonely, sadness embraces u to the point of suffocation.

Now just compare this situation with a real life situation, u’re in a hotel, u went to the counter, and said: I’m hungry! Gimme a tasty food and a drink. Now suppose u’re on the other side of the counter and u just received that oder (above). What will u do? What good food u will give to ur customer? What drink will accompany that food? What would be it’s cost? Will ur customer be happy to pay the price of that food u gave to him? What if that customer says “This is not I wanted, gimme another thing. GOOD ONE”

What would U do???

I believe that most of us are doing the same thing with god, we all want happiness, pleasure, easy life. But we never clarify the real meaning of Happiness while placing our order (Prayer). To remind u I’m comparing Spiritual actions with Real life actions. So Praying to god here is equivalent to placing an order in a Restaurant/Shop. U will agree with me on this “Definition of happiness will change from person to person, and situation to situation”, Now can u see that if u ask god to give happiness in ur life is just like asking for Food on Mc Donald’s counter.

God is almighty and he knows what’s best for us, with this belief u asked god to get the best thing for u. Now in the above condition if the person on the counter brings u a Top product with chicken wings n 1Ltr bottle of Coke…. and u happen to be a veggie not at all thirsty enough to finish off 1ltr bottle. What will u do? U will turn down the order, u have turned down a Top product. And I agree that u have not done anything wrong by turning down such an Order.

But didn’t u urself allowed the person to decide & bring the best food for u? When u already gave all rights to him to decide on ur behalf, then why do u feel bad enough to turn down that order after it arrives? Simple, bcoz this is not what u wanted. But how can other person know unless u clearly ask for what exactly u want? U asked for best and u are served the best. Why complain now?

Now….. Trying to step in the shoes of the person on counter: What will u feel if ur decision was turned down like that in Public? Obviously u will feel darn upset on such a customer. Ordering it badly and then turning down the best product given to him, u will never wish to get the same customer back on ur counter. Right? Same is with God, why will he entertain ur half baked prayers ever again? But god always answers whatever u ask, no matter how rubbish way u pray.

Only bcoz of our fault, our prayers remain unanswered for a long long time. It’s my personal experience that I have found my prayers answered within minutes. U have all rights to not to believe in my words, doubt me as much as u like. But who’ll be in loss? Believe in urself, keep ur faith strong, and order clearly.

In a nutshell: While placing ur order, place it correctly and clearly. Don’t leave any space for confusions & misunderstandings.

Stars & the God.

Thou seest many stars at night in the sky, but findest them not when the sun rises. Canst thou say that there are no stars, then, in the heaven of day? So, O man, because thou beholdest not the Almighty in the days of thy ignorance, say not that there is no God. - Sri Ramakrishna

Read those lines again, word-by-word, aren’t they having deep meaning? Yes! We know they are deep thoughts; full of love. You must be feeling a bit surprised the way I am feeling right now, the word “Ignorance” is not expected from the kind mouth of a great soul like Sri Ramakrishna. We all will agree that this word is full of negativity, then why such a blessed soul used this word? Before talking about anything else I would like to think first about the reason why Sri Ramakrishna used such a negative word. I believe it’s the anger which might have made appear that this word is best and most appropriate word to be used at that time when he said those enlightened thoughts. Leaving all things behind, can u accept that the kindest soul like Sri Ramakrishna can be angry? Yes he can be, because due to their ignorant behavior people are insulting the almighty by ignoring his inevitable existence. Can you now feel that magnitude of anger which might have touched Sri Ramakrishna at that time when he saw that the “God” whom he loves like anything is a matter of doubt of those ignorant people?

We all are clear with the meaning of Ignorance, the lack of knowledge or education. Sri Ramakrishna mentioned this ignorance of people in 20th century, but the real question is why and how can people of 21st century still be called as Ignorant? It is not right to say that people of 20th century did not have proper knowledge or education, but still people were called ignorant. I believe that we all get to behave like an ignorant person at least once everyday in our life. We’re all nicely trained to tackle occupational stress and now we all can fight the hectic life full of endless competition for existence in present scenario. But we lack in our ability to handle our personal life and how to control our thoughts, actions and words.

We all agree to the fact that we can never ignore the existence of God, but in hard times we all question that Almighty itself. A common question which we all had asked at least once in life is “Why me?” Any idea why? Can this be called as our weak faith in god? Or is it just the lack of complete trust? Are we cheating our self by calling ourselves as god fearing person?

Why is it so that when we are 100% sure in saying that stars are always there in the sky, but at the same time we question god whenever we face hard times of our life? When we call him “the almighty lord” then why… and how can we humans dare to question his wish and actions?

Don’t we need to strengthen our faith more and more? Instead of asking god, why should we not first find out a solution of these weaknesses in ourselves? We surely can do it, but still we are suffering from the same weakness which had prevailed from centuries. God’s there, always around us, still our heart feels the pain of loneliness, still our mind feels the burns of being discriminated whenever we see others climbing higher than us. Whenever we get hurt in life we always forget that “Whenever the right time comes, we will always get whatever we deserve”, why the pain becomes greater than the love for god? When we say that we are children of god and he is always looking after us, then why we are still weak enough to blame those who give us pain? How could you ever experience the pain unless the god himself had not wished to let u face the pain? Why our faith in god needs to be corrected by inspirational words from others? When god is always there, and he is always watching over us, and is always doing the best for us… then why does our faith, trust and love for god is not able to crush the pains of life?

Oh god… so many of these unanswered questions makes me feel that I REALLY needs to think seriously about weaknesses I’m having in myself. If you have answers for any of these questions then do let me know so that I’m also able to enjoy the sweetness which Sri Ramakrishna had tasted by drowning himself in eternal nectar of Almighty’s love.

I wish for peace, love, stronger faith, happiness and good health for all of u readers.

Be blessed,
Gsvirdi
