Become a Pearl!

Become a Pearl!

Have you ever seen a piece of natural pearl? How wonderful it looks! It makes one admire the beauty and the essence of this white piece of object.

You dip the pearl in a mud, or throw it on the floor, the pearl has the strange characteristic of never loosing it’s charm and identity. Whether it is put together in a piece of thread to form a neckpiece or put inside a glass box, it always looks admirable. It’s environment, surroundings or the vessel it is kept in might change but it still remains the pearl of wisdom and truth.

This is exactly as to how we as individuals should be. We have made our lives revolve around concepts, trends and notions. These are very vague and opaque which make us fail to realise about the vibrancy of life. Whatever the situations, or opinions of people around you maybe, you should always stay in touch with the real you. A pearl does not try to become beautiful or magnificent, it is the very nature of it. So, don’t try too hard to be beautiful, or adorable. Realise that you already are and be natural.

So what are you waiting for?

Best Will Come To You

Best Will Come To You

Often we get disheartened at not getting what we desired for. The wise thing is to always ask for what is best for you from the Divine. You may always be asking for more money but there might be an unending dance of love and joy with a little less of money, waiting for you.

Life is much larger than our small cravings and aversion. There is an ocean for us to embrace, so why should we settle for a well or a pond. Have faith and belief that this life only the best is going to come to you.

On the Path of Liberation!

On the Path of Liberation!

This world as we see, is just a play,
Driven by hollow perceptions of the mind.
There is a wheel of emotions and feelings
That churns the heart of every individual.
The way out of this misery is,
To walk on the path of liberation.

It’s only a few fortunate ones
Who travel on the path of liberation.
Bounded by actions and desires
The rest are subjected to unending grief.
But the one who comes to this path
Sets himself free from this finite world.

He neither desires nor is he averse
To any objects in this world.
Be it sorrow or joy, happiness or remorse
He becomes indifferent to either of them.
Yet he performs his sacred duties
Remaining unattached to the fruits of the action.

There will come a thousand thorns
Yet they seem like a bed of roses to him.
He certainly will fall and crumble,
But never does he feel broken and fallen.
For he has crossed the ocean of duality, and
Remains established in the supreme state.

Love and peace have become his nature
Knowledge and wisdom his only companion,
Ever pure he lives in total equanimity.
He has no enemies nor any friends
For everyone and everything is his
On this path of liberation.

How do you get over pain?

How do you get over pain?

Just realise that this is going to end, just like any other difficulty that was there in the past. Time is a big healer, it swings past the far extremes and brings forth the inevitable, the present. 

Besides just dwell on how could being engrossed in your pain do any good to you or others? Your life isn’t fair attitude can do nothing to make it good but it will only make it worse. Just drop it all and breath in and feel the joy in the air. A joy that does not cling to an object but is rooted in this very existence. Besides life is meant to be lived and not killed.

Wake up and bring a shift in your perspective. There is no end to pain but there is always a beginning to getting liberated from it. Fall in love with impermanance and embrace the perfect smile;)

Sincerity

Sincerity

If you have a desire, wish or want that is sincere in nature, be rest assured that it will be fulfilled. Desires come naturally to everyone present in this creation but sincerity is what drives the nature to work towards fulfilling your dreams. 

So Be Sincere 😉

How To Overcome The Challenges Of Life?

How To Overcome The Challenges Of Life?

Living in the 21st century our lives are a tale of frequent twists and turns. Be it relationships, academics, family, friends or career, we all have to deal with a number of people.This brings many challenging situations into our lives and it becomes extremely difficult to cope up with such unbearable scenarios in life. We seem to get lost amidst it all and fail to find a way out of the mess.

More so we have always been told to exceed beyond our competitors, as such our lives have become a constant story of competitions which never seem to cease. Trying to be the perfect child, the perfect husband, a perfect employee or a perfect worker makes us forget about our very own existence. It is true that perfection is a much needed reality that we must all seek to achieve but at the same moment we must realise about the illusion of it.

To cope up with the challenges that come in our lives it is necessary to have the right kind of knowledge and always be in the company of your own self. You have to realise that whatever advices or learning that you have got in your life, it is ultimately upon you to make the decisions. No one can ever force with that! The world may be up against you but you have to be true to your nature and character. 

Here are a few ways on how you can overcome the challenges that come in your lives.

1. Keep a positive attitude – Winning is success but success is definitely not in winning! Your failures are what plays a major role in making you a better person. To have a positive attitude and the courage to face the adversities is what will help you to sail through in life. You lost, you are broken but just think for a minute – is it over yet? Definitely no! What has happened, has happened and there is no point crying about it. Accept it with a smile and have the courage to move forward.

2. Have Patience – Often in our efforts to achieve we forget about the value of patience. A seed sown takes months or years to bear fruits and flowers, similarly so does our efforts and actions. Being in a hurry robs us off our simplicity and efficiency. Often it happens so that in our impatience we let go of our very own success. We seem to loose the focus on the effort to the fruit of the action which ultimately robs us off the fun in both. Try to be calm and composed for remember one thing that your efforts will never go unrewarded. It may take time but it will definitely be worth.

3. Don’t shy away from taking help – Each individual has his own unique capabilities. A soccer player cannot run a formulae one car. We all specialise in our very own talents. It takes a writer, composer, a number of musicians and a singer to make a beautiful song. With time you must have also developed understanding of what are your capabilities. It would surely be wise to seek the help of the talented and the capable to complete the things that you have started, effectively and efficiently. It is not a sign of weakness but a sign of complementing each other’s shortcomings and team work. Even a flower needs water to sparkle so what should stop you from taking help?

4. Become aware of the opposites – Life is a cycle of ups and downs. Business cycles are characterised by frequent periods of boom, stagnation and recession and so the phases come in our lives. We have all been witness to times of happiness and sorrow. It is all a part of a bigger game. Bring awareness to this eternal reality that both good and bad are important for they both co-exist. This is the very law of nature and all of us are bound by it. Accept both of them with equality and don’t become feverish about the either.

5. Learn from your failures – The bad thing about winning is that it often robs you off the ability to be a learner. Failures are important for it helps you to realise and learn from the mistakes that you have done. It makes you conscious about them so that you can be more careful in your next step and who knows, come out with even better results. We all marvel at the success of the most famous people around the globe but if you ask any of them about the reason for it, they all will have one thing to say – ‘learn from your mistakes.’

6. Keep the company of the wise – While there will be tons of people out there to criticise you and ridicule every move that you make, there would be some who would always cheer you up and boost your morale. While the majority would be otherwise, having even a single companion in your difficult times will help you to achieve what you have set goals on. See how a mother loves and cares of her child unconditionally. The world may say that he is incapable or unworthy but it is her undoubted belief and conviction that makes him come out with flying colours. Take interest in the company of the people who motivate and advice you in your times of need.

7. Never give up – This is the most important thing. You may have started a new business venture and it might have failed. The wise thing to do would be to accept it and give it another shot. Don’t give up on yourself. Whether to start it from the scratch or do something new this time would be best known to you. But you should never loose that spark to rise up and start afresh. Have faith in you and the world, your failure is just a test to see if you can sustain the success. There are thousands of reason to give up but just one that says not to – “I have to make it.”

Life is simple but the blame on making it difficult lies solely on us for in our efforts to excel and overdo we have forgotten how to live it through. A sailor is ready to face the unprecedented situations in the ocean for he knows that he has set on is riddle with hardships and difficulties. But he turns an adverse situation into an opportunity to face it correctly. Even you are living in-between an ocean of opportunities, the reality of which can be brought by making a simple shift in your attitude in life.
