Making Your Thoughts Count

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.

“A human is a product of the thoughts he keeps.” – We know that and yet we choose to think rubbish. Take a moment to visualize your thoughts and you’ll see more than 98% of your thoughts would be either of the days that has gone by or of the future. Yesterday & Tomorrow.

And here we forget one of the most venerable teachings of life “Present is a PRESENT.” Why must we choose to endure pain long after the incident has happened? Why we worry about what is yet to come? Why must we give tit for tat? Why can’t we practice patience?

Let’s not be ordinary. Let’s do something special and make our good thoughts count. Let’s spread peace by being at peace with ourselves because with our thoughts, we make the world.

Knowing Thy Spirit



This is how a typical answer to the post topic will be like. Spirituality, when mixed with religion, can evoke responses like these.

The word ‘Spirituality’ is made from Latin ‘Spiritus’ meaning – “Self”.

Christian Science uses "Spirit" as one of the seven synonyms for God, as in: "Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love.

Hinduism uses “Spirit” to refer to “Soul” or “Atman”.

Greek perceived it as the entity that leaves body when someone dies.

On exploring the relationship between spiritual points of view about health and healing, you’ll find that knowing about “Self” is probably one of the biggest discovery you can do about yourself. Today we have gone to moon, exploring Mars, have gone under sea, into the deepest locations on earth and try to find what happens there – but what happens in our mind, we don’t know. And if we know, we can’t control.

Hatred, jealousy, insecurity, anger and frustration – each of us can identify our self with these intimidating emotions. People feel more comfortable telling stories of their pain rather than happiness. Why? Because we fear our happiness might get lost if we share. If that is how you feel too, trust me – it is the time for self discovery.

Just spare few thoughts and think who you are, where you from, what is life and what is death. I’ll be writing about these topics in detail, so if you have anything to add, let me know. Will put it here along with your link.
