Become like an ocean.

Purity, sincerity & magnanimity in the heart is the secret to all the possibilities.

Just feel like an ocean. No amount of oil spills, ship wrecks & storms can take away the oceans beauty.

Thus will it be for the one who develops all the three.


How to see good in Bad things.

Often we become sad after the occurrence of some events. Be it related to relationships, career or something personal, you need to realise that these happen to teach us a lesson.

These lessons ultimately helps us grow in life. If we look at the past events, we have learnt so much through them, isn’t it. Be it failing in a business, breakups, turmoils in family, all of them taught us something that made us grow.

So next time you feel caught up just look at the lesson that you can take out from the event instead of sticking your mind to the event!

You don’t need an answer!

You don’t need an answer!

We all are different individuals with diverse opinions and perceptions. Yet, there are a lot of commonalities among us.

We all breath the same air, eat, sleep and also smile! The first three are a 100 per cent certain for each one of you reading this, if not then you surely are not a human being!

We are all living to maximise our happiness.

Smiling is the best part in life. If you are in a mess, yet if you are able to smile then you are happy.

Though everyone lives with an aim to maximise their happiness, be it through acquiring wealth, fame, recognition, feeling loved or serving the society. In their pursuit of the goal, problems become an integral part of it.

Problems in life

You want to earn lots of money and have the perfect business plan but don’t have the finances, there is a Problem! You want to become famous and recognised like Michael Jackson but you are pathetic at singing – problem. You are madly in love with a girl/boy but she/he is getting married tomorrow – certainly a very BIG PROBLEM!

In short problems are a everyday part of life. Be it professional career, relationships or personal life, a lot many problems arise and an equal number subside.


First is that you panic- ‘OMG! Where did this come from.’

Slowly you start accepting the reality and come into acceptance. You realise that yes, There is a real problem!

Then you try to find a solution to the problem. But do you really find it?

You don’t need an answer!

It is true that it takes a little time for us to find the answers/solutions. But do they really help us to achieve maximum happiness. No!

Our mind keeps on running hither tither. We are happy when our mind is relaxed. An answer does not bring an end in itself. For it has solved the puzzle but has not yet silenced the mind. To achieve the latter you need to move beyond the answer.

How do you come to that state? Through Yoga and Meditation. Meditation is the best way to relax your mind. During meditation the mind withdraws from the five senses and reposes within. That is where the solution to all the problems lies. DEEPER WITHIN!

Only solving a mystery won’t bring an end to a problem. You need to be in that plane where being in contentment and happiness makes the problem irrelevant.

Suppose your mother asks you to get a box of chocolates, that would be given to the guests who are coming on the weekend. You just like a sweet little kid, drive straight to the supermarket and walk up to the chocolates section. You look around and find so many varieties to choose from.!?!

‘Should I get an Hershey’s? Or should I buy the local handcrafted ones?’

Problems, confusion and a hanging decision. How you wish your mother would have told you which one to buy!

However, if you would just pick on anyone and be calm and composed with the belief that – ‘ They will love this.’

Ta da! The problem just vanishes.

But does it happen that way? No!

Practicing meditation takes you to that state where you overcome the confusion and the problem.

That’s when you won’t need an answer and silence would become the answer to all your problems.!

Smile when in a problem! 😊

Smile when in a problem! 😊

Only thing wise people do when a problem arises is smile. For living in knowledge has made them realise the ultimate truth – This too shall pass.”

Just reflect back on your life. All the problems that had come on your door, they knocked and bothered you for a while. Now they are just faded memories in the alley of memories lane.

Looking back on some would make you laugh at yourself for being bothered by them, isn’t it?

So why invest your precious energy stressing the mind with it. Just realise the problem and smile. Surely, smiling won’t solve the problem but it definitely won’t make it worse.

So just……SMILE 😊

P.S. – The amazing person reading this now knows what to do when a problem comes up 😉

To win or to loose?

To win or to loose?

If you would be offered a boon and there would be a choice –

‘You want to always win’


‘You want to always lose’

Which boon would you ask for?

The first one certainly! Like most of the wise people you would definitely ask to be granted a boon that would always make you the winner. That joy of sailing past everyone to leave them behind indeed seems blissful!

But I would choose the neither. For me it’s not a great thing to win nor is it bad to loose. I see beyond these two facets of life. There is a more deeper and subtle element beyond these two ‘learning.’

If you ask most of the successful people around the world that what propelled them to come to the pedestal they are upon, they would gleam and say- “it’s the failures.” It was not their victory that brought them success but their failures. The latter gave them a chance to introspect and dig deeper into their abilities.

It should never be about winning or loosing but about learning. Life is a constant journey to evolve and to grow. There are people who feel happy after winning and there are others who feel sad after loosing. I just look for the hidden wisdom in the occurrence of both the events!

Solution to problems

Problems and conflicts are a part of life. Often we get stuck with them and don’t look towards finding the solutions. The way out is to shift your attention away from them and focus on the solutions.
