Fresh approach to life

Leave a comment


Starting from this post, here, I have chosen to make a fresh attempt at getting my life back in order. I have always had a bit of difficulty when it came to crucial point in a process. I quit. Yes. I quit. That is definitely not a thing that one brags about. However I am more than happy to say it as it would surely serve as an example to others. Everyone has this problem in one or the other for form or at one or the other time. Problem is, most don’t admit it.

I wish to begin the process of breaking this barrier by accepting the fact that I quit at crucial point. need to overcome that block. Else there is no progress. Rather, to stay within my teachings, there is no life. Progress is a linear motion. Whereas I have been talking and teaching about here and now. In the moment to be alive. There is no past or future. It is all here, right now. So progress is incorrect. However, not being able to tackle the stagnancy is sign of inability to live in here and now. That is worrying.

Hence, this attempt at breaking free from it. Hopefully, with some courage and encouragement from friends I will break the barrier. Meanwhile, enjoy life.

Definitely a simple article to express something very profound. Thank you for sharing the insight. In the myriad of blogs that tend to get too complex or absurd in their context, it is definitely refreshing to find something so soothingly simple.

However, I must point out that the views in this article would by and large be too alienated for people of modern world. It is only a few Indians who would understand the importance of ‘Guru Shishya’ Parampara and the depth of the education system which we had and lost. However, I firmly believe that the strength of India as a nation is due to the deep rooted cultural aspects which would take many generations to wipe out, if at all. It is this wisdom that keeps us what we are.

Lessons for a better life – 2

Want to sleep like a King tomorrow? Sleep like a King tonight!

I have asked so many times, “What do you want?”

The answers I received were:

  • Happiness
  • Inner peace
  • Joy
  • Satisfaction
  • Health
  • Love
  • Compassion
  • Love of others
  • Respect
  • Enlightenment
  • Wisdom
  • Will power
  • Focus

… And so on.

My answer to all of them is the first sentence. Want to live like a King tomorrow? Sleep like a King tonight. You don’t need to find that outside. It’s within. Today you are what you wished to be yesterday. Tomorrow will be what you sleep like tonight.

Tonight you sleep, with faith in your own self, with the wisdom you desire and you will see you wake up with it. Whilst you are sleeping, you mind will dig out that information for you. It’s there inside somewhere and this stands true for everything.

It’s not a matter of finding the right answers. It’s the matter of finding right questions. We have the answers but we don’t know the questions.

Seek answers within and not without.

Here is a little exercise for those interested to experience the overnight phenomenon. When go to bed and are ready and relaxed to finally sleep into the dream world. Knock your head three times gently on pillow where you rest your head. Ask a question or offer a situation that you need an insight into. Knock your head three times gently again on the pillow and go to sleep.

When you wake up, don’t ask me how, but you will most likely have the answer. If not direct, there will be clues for you to understand. Either in form of dream, some vision or plain good old bright spark flashing across you mind. Intuition, inspiration, an ad in the newspaper, comments by people around you, something will flash the answer to you.

Those of you who do this please do share the experience.

Three Monkeys

3 Monkeys

In my younger days, I was taught the lessons learnt from the famous ‘three monkeys’. I always wondered, how come we have to learn from monkeys? Aren’t we supposed to be more intelligent than them?

Well never challenged the authority and still I don’t. I have realised that it’s better to find your own simpler ways of understanding life rather than conforming or confronting the established belief system.

In modern times I see people suffering from something that always took me long to explain. By the time the explanation was over, listeners and readers would lose interest.

Last night, I had inspiration that gave me the following interpretation of the three monkeys in modern times. Rather then they representing wisdom, they represent the lack of it. They still remain the wise monkeys but by mocking what we are doing, these monkeys are reflecting our mistakes and the pain that we suffer from that. So here is the new interpretation:

Original :

  • The monkey with mouth covered: Speak no Evil
  • The monkey with ears covered: Hear no Evil
  • The monkey with eyes covered: See no Evil

My Version:

First of all I call it as the “Three Monkey Syndrome”. All those who are suffering can be labelled as suffering this three monkey syndrome:

  • The monkey with mouth covered: I won’t express my true feelings
  • The monkey with ears covered: I won’t listen to the message from Universe
  • The monkey with eyes covered: I won’t see the reality

Well this inspiration is pretty new and I guess I will need to refine it further more. Till then, hope you enjoy this different interpretation of three monkeys and maybe contribute towards refining it and making it more contemporary.
