"The Awakening"

Life is always uncertain and as such it keeps on developing situations which have the power to confuse humans as far s this life is considered. We all have set goals in our life, some of us keep money as the prime motive, for others relations are very important and for some self satisfaction plays the most important goal of life and people give their level best to attain the goals they have determined to achieve, but during this process of running after the things we have set makes us to really think that is this precious life meant to run after money and other materialistic things.
The biggest problem with this life is that we do not know its validity. We have it today but no one can guarantee that will it be with us for tomorrow or not. This is the biggest truth of life and we cannot deny this fact under any circumstances.
So we need to rethink about the things which we had been doing on for years. We have been sacrificing our happiness just for the sake of earning a bit more. Apart from this we have been working for endless hours, cutting down on our sleeping hours and still working like machine.
Life is a precious gift and the most important thing that we need to have in our life is contentment and happiness and this should be the main goal in whatever we do. Every day of our life should begin with happiness and end on the same node as I feel that we people technically do not have a minute to waste by getting sad when we have so much to live for.
I have seen people fighting over minor issues like property and money, which refers that just for the sake of some materialistic things we are disturbing ourselves and this is the cause of all the sadness that we have in our minds.
We can never certainly say what is life after death, different theories exists worldwide about the same but there is no scientific evidence of what actually happens to a person when he is no more, I have even seen people putting their present life to so much of struggle just to assure that they will live a good life after death. All these things really seem crazy and useless when I see people wasting their precious present for the sake of uncertain tomorrow.
The awakening here refers to the realization of the fact that people around me are among one of the most wonderful creations of god and that it is important for all of us to live with love and mutual co-operation among each other. Human values and mutual respect is very important, whereas having differences over minor issues is never done and neither it is of any use.
Countries across the globe spend about half of their income in just creating systems for their defense and to have a force in case a war exists, whereas I and many of the readers reading this want to ask that what is the use of all this, if we humans are considered as one of the most developed species on earth then why the hell we cannot understand the value of life. Was this the reason that god made us the most intelligent on earth, if this was the sole reason, I do feel that animals are better than us, at least one can know that a dog is loyal and will be loyal for his master.
So the point here is that we need to be mature enough to understand the fact that all the materialistic things will remain here and will be used by someone else and we cannot control that. Things are made to be used whereas people are made to be loved, but opposite of this is happening. People are fighting over minor issues and things that are not even eligible to be fought over, so we need to realize this fact and move on to the higher value of humanity that focuses towards the love and affection that the humans should have among them as it will infuse only the goodness among all of us and will remove the mental barriers that people have in their minds against each other.
The second thing that I have noticed is the creation of boundaries and human is an expert in defining boundaries between nations on a large scale and between our neighbors on a small scale. Humanism is all about supporting each other and living with peace and harmony with each other, this is the reason that human is  considered to be a social animal, but such a behavior this can never be termed as a human behavior(
We as human beings need to understand the same and need to unite as a big large family. The developed nations should look into ways to support the weaker nations and so on every human should make an effort to support each other so that together we can make this life an interesting one.
Human beings need to be humans and as such needs to apply the logical approach towards thinking in the manner I and my readers thought, lets distribute and spread love and believe me the fragrance of love is the sweetest and the best which has the ability to conquer the biggest problems in the world and nothing is bigger than life, so we should start respecting it and enjoy the feel of spreading love and peace as it really has the power to make you feel on the top of this world.

"Exercise regularly and stay fit"

 Do you remember this word? Or left it there in the school ground? Yes most of us have left it there only. When this word comes we just get so much disturbed that we just want to run away. Well people are becoming conscious about their health these days and so I am writing on this topic.
It is really very important for us to indulge in an exercise routine if we want to live a healthy and long life. Do you remember the days of your PT period and the morning school assembly? So strong we were. We had such a sound sleep. Don’t you miss your that state of mind and body? It was all because of the regular exercise routine we had at that time.
Exercise as per the dictionary means indulging in any physical activity that helps in keeping oneself fit. That should not be so difficult a task to take up. Exercise can be taken up in any form whether running, jogging or physical workout. Remember after a bad day at school you would play videogame back at home and release all your tension and aggression over there. But videogame in return stresses our eyes. Exercise provides a platform for releasing our vent up worries and paves way towards ‘feeling good’ the whole day. There is a stress hormone cortisol which gets burnt away through exercise and while other happy chemicals like dopamine and serotonin are released in the brain during exercise. Exercise also helps to cope up with the negative feelings of pessimism and uncertainty. Body needs flexibility to work at its best in life. The Stressed body results in bad postures and drooping shoulders which form very unimpressive body language. 
‘In a Sound Body lies a Sound Mind.’
Body can only be made sound by following a regular exercise regime.
The benefits of which would be-
Exercise helps to-
-          Improve your balance and co-ordination
-          Tones and tightens your body
-          Increases your capacity, and concentration
-          Restores bones and muscle loss
-          Keeps your heart healthy
-          Stimulates the fat-burning process
-          Improves your lung capacity
-          Burns out your stress hormones, and elevates feel good hormones like endorphins.

Before following any sort of exercise regimen you should be first of all be aware your body type and about the capacity of your body. One should not take up a vigorous regimen as a beginner.  Before taking up an exercise regimen one should undergo a physical test. The physical test includes Pathology test, Diabetic profile, Liver Profile which will first help in diagnosing the problems that already exist in your body. This should not stress you, because keeping yourself abreast of your problems helps in following a more appropriate regimen without giving undue stress upon your body. Do remember not to be too harsh upon your body.
Many people are hitting gym these days but if you can’t afford that no worries. All you need is a good pair of sports shoes, a skipping rope and some of your favorite music and you can begin from where you are. You can start it by going for a Jogging or walk in the morning.  You can even take up skipping. Skipping is the simplest form of exercise that is very much capable of providing you with quick energy and all the effects of a wholesome workout. You can also go for all those exercises which were taught to you during school days. Nowadays much fitness DVD’s have come up that can so very well guide you to put your leg forward. Many bollywood personalities have now come up with their fitness DVD’s like Bipasha Basu, Shilpa Shetty and Lara Dutta. You can follow such fitness DVD’s and can religiously follow their personal exercise regimen. Nowadays internet is the big thing and can guide you on anything you ask for. So you can go for the videos and step by step guides to exercises which have the pictorial representation of all the exercises running by their side.
Well, exercise is not just only about having a special workout session always. If I talk about women first, they have so many household chores of such sort that they can cover their exercises in them also. All the household chores starting from sweeping, kneading dough, washing clothes, cooking involve exercise of some sort. Cooking is regarded as best stress busting activity. Sweeping provides ample amount of movement to your lower back if done with the correct posture. So women should try to do some of the above household chores on a daily basis. While if we see the life of men; they have long working hours and they have to sit all the time. This requires them to move outdoors and take some fresh air into their systems. What they can also do is that they can just take a walk in their office place after certain intervals of time. After coming from office they can just go for a brisk walk or a rigorous jogging to release their entire vent up emotions. It is always demanded from a man to leave all his office tensions in office and to relax in his home and this can be possible only if he indulges himself in some sort of exercise to release his daily vent up of stress hormones and paving way towards the release of feel good hormones. Kids are already physically very active in their schools; nowadays they are more glued to their mobile or tablet screens or to their tuition. This is not a good thing. Parents should encourage their children to move outdoors and indulge in some form of a sport. Parents should themselves also try to play with their kids and make it a daily routine. This will increase your bonding too. Sports should be encouraged at school and college level. Old age also brings with it lot of problems.  These problems can be minimized if we make our bodies and minds strong through regular exercise. The senior citizens should also try to indulge themselves in doing some light physical workout and should not altogether stick to their beds unless it is required.

How to stay positive when everything is negative

Thoughts make you or break you. It’s all about the beauty of one’s mind.  It is always a matter of your thought process, that you will see the glass as half empty or half full.
To stay positive one of the most essential thing to do is to first know oneself, love oneself and appreciate oneself. Well you have to live with yourself all the time and you cannot live well by hating yourself. This is a very heart breaking feeling. How will you derive happiness out of life when you can’t derive it first from yourself?  Living a happy life is synonymous to loving yourself and then extending and spreading that love and understanding for others. It is very appropriately quoted – ‘to love your self is the beginning of a lifelong romance.’ When self love is generated, a good spirit comes forth that enhances the beauty of his being.
When everything seems to be negative around you it is this goodness of your spirit that makes you glide easily through such bad times. The condition is that you have to become your best friend first and should develop a deep belief in yourself. A man who understands and loves life and humanity never becomes victim of his circumstances. Self love creates a chain reaction of generation of other positive feelings of belief, compassion, wisdom and true spirit.
One should always be creative in life. To be creative is to add some special effects of yours to every task you do.  This is the eternal fountain of joy. When you express yourself through the tasks you do. It is the joy of doing.  Whether you cook, write, dress up, dance or sing do it the way you like it. This adds lot of optimism and zest to your life.
Optimism is all about being constructive and pessimism is all about being destructive. When you fill you mind with negative thoughts you destroy your peace of mind, your capacity to do things, your inner joy, relationships, health, career and everything.  It would be so stupid of us to waste our potentials in this way by just thinking negatively.
Human being is a very capable living creature on earth. He is a storehouse of capabilities that have no end. Through his these abilities he has reached the stars, the moon and to the core of the earth. Many feats are still left to be achieved; but only if you believe in yourself and god that has created you for a purpose. Once you start believing everything appears beautiful and interesting. All things seem bright and wonderful. Even if life is not going as per your dreams you should be grateful for the fact that you are still alive and have the chance to make your wishes come true. It is often said that everybody is imperfect; but I say everybody is just PERFECT. They have been so appropriately made. Each person is playing a different role which cannot be played by anyone else. All that is required is a positive attitude. Life is a combination of two things good and bad. There is no dominance of just one thing. Light follows dark; night follows day, winter follows summer and the cycle goes on in life. Man has such state of mind that he likes change. So life comprises of different stages and phases to make it deep and interesting for the one who has a positive frame of mind. If you delve deeper and analyze your life in terms of the good and bad times, you will see that bad times made you stronger and good times made your memories. We cannot shun our bad times because they are the stepping stones to the good times. Bad times also have the capacity to develop deep bonds and long lasting friendships. Sometimes we are into an illusion of being the king of world which casts a veil of pride and selfishness over us so bad times tear that veil apart and bring about a human side of us to forth. We realize the importance of our loved ones in our lives and also the value of small joys in our life.
Gold has to pass through the heat to become pure and sun has to burn itself to give light. We should always remember these words whenever we are faced with bad times as they are the testing times to test our patience, positivity, will and faith and once we cross that level we come out as a better person. Bad times come to make us Bitter or better, choice is ours. God has given us the gift of life and earth full of resources but it is entirely our wisdom to use the gift correctly or thoughtlessly.
We don’t value things unless they are about to be taken away from us. Same way good times are valued only after we face bad times. Tasty food is liked only after having quite simple food. The importance of good people is realized only after meeting the Bad ones. So facing the rough times is equally important to move ahead in life. They should not be regarded as bad times; but should be counted as life experiences.
One should try to develop a clear heart and pure soul. This makes way to our union with the divine. One should try to communicate with him and tell him everything just like a best friend. God always acts as our true friend and I can say it because I have experienced it. You just have to surrender yourself to him considering him as your ultimate savior. This is the only secret to leading a blissful life. To be with your creator and to have faith in him is the path towards liberation. We humans have the tendency to regret about our past and to be anxious for our future; it is only through devotion to god can we stay in our present moment. Staying in the present moment is regarded as HAPPINESS.

Higher Thoughts

Couple of years ago, when the materialistic things were of not much availability, people were closely knitted to each other and more importance was given to the relations rather than wondering about the materialistic things, but as the time passed, there was a major shift in the thinking pattern of the individuals. The Human race started running the rat race in order to earn more, this need of earning more even came as a blessing or a curse from this modernization concept itself. People started engaging themselves more into virtual world, where mobile phones, computers and gadgets started replacing the members of the family. The situation changed so much that there are chances that a husband and wife living together are so much involved in their jobs and materialistic world that they might see each other only once in a day but it has technically become impossible for a person to live without mobiles, computers even for a second.
This virtualization and materialization has taken away the inner peace of the mind. There was a time when meeting an old friend in personal was considered as one of the happiest moment for a person, but hats off to the technology these days, you can easily meet all your friends over computers and can even chat with them.
I had been a great fan of Nature photography and I used to enjoy it, but the day I started using social platforms, the only thing that came up in my mind was to have a click that I could post on my wall. So every genuine thing has been moving towards virtual world that has more to show and less to represent.
I have just taken into consideration a different view to the concept and the main motive was not to discard the technology, but to highlight the point that we are moving to a quantity based life and have compromised on the quality so much. The strange part of the whole issues is that, we do not have time for our families, but if a far friend has a status update indicating a bad health, we will not miss a chance to like the status or put a comment on the same.
I do agree to the fact that things do change with respect to time and since the passage of time the technology has upgraded and that has made our life simpler and this is appreciable, but my question comes at all the facilities that comes above this point. My post refers to the over involvement of the individuals in the technical frameworks, which has removed the essence of the emotional relations between all of us. Care in today’s world is defined as the process of liking or commenting on a status and that’s it. This is one of the major reasons for the increasing rate of depression among the individuals. The people are getting more obsessed with the materialistic things and the dependency on these things has reached to a maximum limit.
In spite of having about 1000 odd friends on face book, there are moments that when I feel alone and scroll down the list of virtual friends to find someone to share my feelings and emotions, I feel empty handed, so the numbers have increased, but what is the use of these numbers when there is no connection between the hearts and everything that exists in the virtual world is meant to create an impression on others, however no one cares of what impression it puts on an individual.
If I am feeling sad, I can post it in seconds and the same will be available to hundreds of my friends in my list, a few of them will ask why, a couple will give a like to it, whereas I never understood the sense of liking a post in which an individual is showing to be sad. So after all this is done, the main question is has my sadness gone, the answer is no, maybe I will see other happy posts on the wall and that will make me even more depressed, Instead if I had called one of my real friend that was available in physical with me, it would have been the best.
So the centre point of the whole discussion is that no matter how much the technology may advance, but it will never be possible for science and technology to replace the human emotions and no such social networking platform can do with 1000 friends online, what a single friend in actual can do for you.
May be in today’s world we have to consider all these things as the ornaments that have to be carried along, but they should be used only for decorative purposes with their role limited only to a certain extent and things like love, friendship needs a platform that could be built only using an emotional platform that needs no likes, no comments but it requires a simple hug that comes from your friend’s heart explaining and saying that I am and will always be there in your hours of difficulty.

Heart Vs Brain- Who is the Boss

Heart and Brain both form most essential part of our body. Heart circulates blood giving life to our body. On the other hand brain gives meaning to all the events and things we see. Heart makes us feel and Brain helps us to understand, than how can we say whether it is important to feel or to understand?
Following the heart is easy for all. Heart does not distinguish between right or wrong. It just creates an altogether a rosy picture or an altogether a horror one depending upon the mood. Heart helps us in finding happiness even in small things. Heart makes us like red color and has those innocent crushes. It is this heart which helps in creating our own dream world, fantasies which seem so real and keeps us always on our toes; irrespective of whatever is going around in reality.
Brain – YES the part whose shape resembles that of walnut holds the place above the heart inside our head. Brain is a storehouse of our memories, and experiences that shape our attitudes and perceptions in general. Perceptions refer to our way of seeing this world; giving meaning to everything that is going around us. Perception forms a large part of our personality. This is the logical region which forms relations of objects with experiences and learning there by guiding our actions. Brain controls our body movements bringing about perfect coordination of our hands, eye movements.
Hearts is very innocent and happy go lucky types. They are just wild creatures who if left uncontrolled will take you on a very dangerous roller coaster ride. At the end of the day you won’t be very happy or satisfied with your doings. Our heart tries to find easy ways to pleasure and generally shrugs away the important matters that are not too pleasing or exciting. It distorts the reality and intoxicates us to the worldly tunes.
Brain on the other hand keeps a check on our heart. Brain disciplines our heart. It is only human mind which distinguishes it from other living beings on this earth. Man by extensively making use of his brains changed and modified it from being an animal into a creature of higher level consciousness. It is through his brain that he created for himself the world, the facilities to make his life interesting and easy. So, according to my opinion mind is definitely the boss.
Boss cannot work without the attention and cooperation of heart. Heart is the hub for our feelings and emotions. Man is not a computer deemed to perform only logical operations. A living being has been bestowed with the power to sense and feel.
There are two types of people, the thinkers and the feelers. Thinkers tend to place their mind first in making decisions. They are logical, rational and unbiased while taking their decisions. These people are often seen as taking responsibilities in the areas of quality control and supervisory nature. The other lot belongs to the feelers. These people have the quality of empathy and take decisions considering its effect on people feelings. Such people are well suited to the role of being an HR or a counselor, where persons are at the receiving end and where their psychological satisfaction is of utmost importance.
According to me heart and brain should both be coordinated as best friends of each other; Rather than allowing one to dominate the other. A person should live through his heart but heart should be well guided by the mind to save one from regret.
Now what happens if we go singly through what our minds them; our mind gives a green flag only to those people and things that match our beliefs?  Heart expands our vision and compassion for others. Heart allows us to accept things the way they are. Mind sometimes is unable to see things that can be easily felt with heart; it may in the form of understanding someone’s sadness or happiness by just looking into their eyes. Whereas mind can raise the question that he is just not like me.
Nowadays the topic of emotional quotient is becoming very popular. Many job interviews and tests have now also added to their list emotional intelligence ability tests. There is one immensely popular show by the name ‘Emotional Atyachar ‘that gets aired on a popular youth channel these days. Well this suggests that the topic which we are discussing right now holds a lot of importance. To live carefully and consciously is the solution which is the need of the hour. Gone are the days when due to emotional attachment of the heart people used to ignore the wrongdoings being done towards them. Mind always wants a reason, an answer for everything. We have now entered an era where people have become more expressive and independent.  Emotions should not become one’s weakness instead should be turned out into one’s strength. One should never be an emotional fool and should make use of his great mind always. Mind has been placed above the heart that is for a reason to get the final orders from it and then to proceed further in your doings. Mind should be put to use to decode the mysteries of the world and to make best use of our capabilities.
There a special touch which only heart can provide to our activities.  Many a times there are things perfectly been made but lack that very special feeling. That is the miracle of doing things with your heart and mind together. It is a fact that mind always asks for a reward of doing great things and if not given its due it does not find any reason of doing it again. It is here where heart becomes the king. Heart derives pleasure from small things. Mere act of indulging in something you love gives you a heartfelt joy and satisfaction to the spirit. It is this very important job of our heart to keep our spirit alive always at all times.
It is very well said that
‘When love and skill work together expect a masterpiece.’
