Simple Meditation

In today’s world where everyone is running around to get “more”, how peaceful are you? Are you confident that if something unpleasant happens tomorrow, you will be able to maintain your composure? How strong you are internally?

I had these doubts among others when I began on the path of meditation . With time, I have learnt a lot – I have learnt to stay happy and at peace with myself– I have imbibed the values of forgiveness, punctuality, politeness, peacefulness and off-course love. I have understood that contentment comes from within.
I am sharing today a simple formula for meditation which you can include easily in your daily routine to experience a tranquillity that each one of us has.

Each morning before beginning the journey of the day, practice to sit still in silence for 10 minutes. Use the time to sow the seed of peace.

Give yourself these few minutes and see its effect last 24 hours.

‘Miracles do happen’

Do you believe in miracles? Have you seen hostile situations completely taking a 'U' turn in your favour? I have - not because my work never gets struck but because I believe in 'happy go lucky' attitude.

Being lucky is not like a divine interference in all your works so that your life moves smoothly; it is a feeling that I can do anything. How would you feel if somebody does a forecast for you that 7 years down the life you will be a much successful person in personal and professional life, you'll have more comforts, healthier relationships, better equipped to handle tough days – you’ll instantly feel relaxed knowing that your future is secure.

My point is: ‘forget about tomorrow’ – enjoy your today, do every chore with responsibility and spread the positivity around. If your today is good, tomorrow will definitely be better. Let go of your stress and feel free.

People worry so much about the future that they forget to enjoy the present. Whatever you desire, you will get it - simply focus on what you are doing now. See every setback as a stepping stone and every problem as a blessing in disguise. Contrary to what critics might say, these are NOT corny aphorisms. They are timeless truths of humanity. (And critics are just people too scared to grow their dreams anyway - pay no attention to them. Our world today needs people lifting each other up rather than those who put others down).

About the Lessons of Life

“Why do people lie?” “Why are they afraid to accept responsibility of mistakes that they have done?” – These questions struck in my mind while I was on morning walk today.

From the experiences of elders I have learnt that learning from mistakes is important to stay vibrant, otherwise a human being becomes stale. It is not the sign of wisdom if a person doesn’t understand the significance of lessons of life. A weakness that most people have is that they don’t analyse situations from analytical blend of mind.
To let go your past and to see every day as a new day, you need to spend some time with yourself – not to count how much you earned or what good/bad happened during the day, but to analyse how is each day helping you to become a better person.

‘Conversation with self’ reduces stress drastically as it gives you a chance to see an open door of opportunity that you would have otherwise missed. Today can be the first day of your new life; you can shine with all your might – it’s all about choice.

Live Life to its Fullest

Here is something which is not very new but since like stuff like this, I am posting a piece on philosophy for your reading pleasure.

A person asked God:
"what surprises you most about mankind"

God replied : "they loose their health to make money & then loose their money to restore their health.

By thinking anxiously about future, they forget the present, such that they live neither for the present nor for the future.Life is all about uncertainties
Never know which way it will turn, like a wild horse

--- So Live Life to its Fullest –-

Look For Goodness

In everything, goodness is there, our goal is to find it.
In every person, the best is there, our job is to recognise it.
In every situation, the positive is there, our opportunity is to see it.
In every problem, the solution is there, our responsibility is to provide it.
In every setback, the success is there, our adventure is to discover it.
In every crisis, the reason is there, our challenge is to understand it.

By simply seeing the goodness we can manage our stress issues to a great extent and can stay enthusiastic and experience a contented life.
