FeaturedDaily Dose of Inspiration – The Truth

There is only one Truth, but whose is it anyways??

All faith is false, all faith is true

Truth is the shattered mirror strown

In myriad bits; while each believes

His little bit the whole to own

~ Richard Francis Burton

As a person my opinion is simply my opinion. I can empathise and try to understand and feel what it’s like for someone else, but although I can come close, I can never know for sure exactly how a person is experiencing the world. I hold my own piece of mirror, and they hold theirs. Over time those experiences can get blurred and become less clear, meaning it can be difficult to remember the truth of exactly what happened. However most important is how one respond to the memories one do have, and how it affects their life now.

Once we accept that truth is not this fixed thing to be found and clung onto, it becomes easier to accept that others hold different truths, and that no matter how much we may disagree with them, no-one has a monopoly on the truth. For us as individuals it also gives space for hope that some of the negative truths we cling to may not be so fixed. A person might firmly hold the belief that they must never feel sad, as letting in even a bit of sadness would open the floodgates leading to an overwhelming wave of sadness descending upon them.

FeaturedDaily Dose of Inspiration – The Signs

We are all psychics. Believe it or not, but its true. We all somehow already know the answers to all the questions we had, have or will have in the future. It is that little voice in our head which we if not always, mostly tend to “Not listen” because we think we know better. But, hell we are so wrong.

So, our intuition sends us signs. You must train your heart as well as your eyes. You must recognize that there are little miracles popping up in your day, special messages to be opened. Opening the heart opens your eyes to these messages from the Divine. The magic will return to your life as you begin to recognize that you are in constant dialogue with the Divine Intelligence. 

Once of the most common signs are “Déjà Vu”. I am sure you all have heard of it or experienced it before. Now I like to believe that there is a spiritual significance to this phenomenon. Although studies suggest that déjà vu is associated with more serious medical conditions, such as schizophrenia, epilepsy, and clinical anxiety. 

Ummm…..well lets not go there. 😉 I am going to believe what I want to believe…..wait, did I just show a sign of being schizophrenic…ummm…ummm…NOOOOOO! Snap! 

I think its all about having an exceptional memory of remembering things in a long run. Also, if the studies of law of attraction is to be believed, one may  have envisioned or played out similar situation in their minds first and then when they happen in real life, we are familiar with it. I mean there are 60K thoughts that run through our mind everyday, anything is possible and the power of mind is unbelievable indeed. 

Summary : I can achieve anything through the power of my mind.

FeaturedDaily Dose of Inspiration – Mental Block

A mental block is a form of uncontrollable resistance or discharge, suspected to originate in the brain. IT is defined as the unconscious denial of a thought or an emotion. A mental block appears as a mode of defense, removing from his conscience any representation likely to disrupt him.

Wait…..let me rephrase that for you!

Mental blocks are incredibly irritating. It doesn’t matter whether you are pondering over which cupboard to clean first before the festivities start, trying to push yourself do those extra squats at the gym even when your quadriceps (thigh muscles) and gluteus (hip muscles) are screaming in pain or just trying to get up early in morning so that you can achieve more in a day, sometimes you hit a mental block and can’t go forwards.

The usual solution is simply to take a break. After an hour, a day or a week, you return to the problem afresh and suddenly everything seems clear. You can’t understand what the problem was in the first place: the answer is right there, staring you in the face. This is a fascinating capability of the mind. It’s wonderful that it can solve problems unconsciously while we’re getting on with day-to-day life.

Refuse to quit. This too is a lot easier said than done, but tell yourself daily that you refuse to quit. When you are struggling to get motivated, tell yourself, “I refuse to quit!” When you feel that the hard work is not worth it, tell yourself, “I refuse to quit!” Your mental block may be strong, your mind can be stronger. So, “refuse to quit!”

Challenge yourself. For example, firmly decide that every time you are in the gym or following any other kind of fitness regime, you are going to challenge yourself and push forward harder than the previous workout. A

Break it Up. Once you set a short, obtainable goal, make up your mind and accomplish it. Focus on your goal and do not let any mental blocks prevent that goal from happening. They keep you motivated and focused. Once you attain one goal, then you can start with another one easily.

Well, that was my side of the story. What is yours? Do share your pearls of wisdom.

 

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Feelings

FeaturedDaily Dose of Inspiration – Feelings

Emotions and feelings may seem to many of us like trivialities—sensations that get in the way of the real work the brain has to do. Humans have a malleable mind; you can whittle it any way you want.

It is very important that you feel good about yourself. How you feel speaks volume about your mood at that point of time. They are a perfect indicator of what you should do. In today’s busy world, you may not get enough time to relax. However, it is not good to remain continuously in stress for a long time. But you are always feeling something or the other. Make Feelings your Anchor.

Make a decision to feel good about yourself and your surrounding at all time. Now, I know its easier said that done, but we all have to start somewhere. Frustrated, demoralised people are more prone to depression and other psychological disorders and often develop suicidal tendencies. So, it’s best to evade all negativities and make it a point to feel good about yourself.

Try some of these : You should always try to keep yourself happy, Be Optimistic, Work on building your self-esteem, Maintain healthy relationship is very important for happiness, Changes are refreshing and always give you something new to explore, Utilize your skills and do things you are good at, Spend time with people you love and doing the things you love, Never compare yourself with others, Create your own style and Do not hesitate to laugh.

FeaturedDaily Dose of Inspiration – Tomorrow

Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow : Our concepts of time—and how we process it in the brain—are based on our understanding of physical space, with some surprising cultural variations.

The reason procrastination is so difficult to deal with might be tied to our perception of time and the difference between how we see our present and future selves. So even though we know that a year from now we will be the same person we are today, most of us lack any sort of empathy or emotional connection to that future version of ourselves. And so we “delegate” important tasks to our future selves without realizing that present us and future us is the same person. And that person will have to suffer the consequences.

One of the best things we can do is to forgive ourselves for procrastinating. Yes, as naïve as it may sound, it is surprisingly effective. The most useful advice is to stop waiting until we’re in the right mood to perform a certain task. Like Really?, No Really! Hear Me Out. We need to realize that our belief that our emotional state has to match our current task is extremely counterproductive. Ignore how you feel about doing something and just do it.

Don’t agree with me? So, lets here your thoughts then…!!!

FeaturedDaily Dose of Inspiration – Shut the Fuck Up!

Why are people lazy?

Again, we must go back to motivation. The root word in motivation is motive. To understand any behavior or attitude, you must first consider the two basic human motives.

When you boil it all down the two human motives are:

(1) Avoid Pain

(2) Gain Pleasure.

Your mind links pleasure and/or pain to all life events- persons, places, and things (due to past experience and information from others).

The trick is to discover the links in your mind through honest self-contemplation. If you are honest with yourself and take a little time to think, you will be surprised the positive results and the relatively little time it took for you to discover this information.

Start with your mind. Ask your mind to “Shut the Fuck Up!!”. This is the root to changing your laziness. You must destroy all unproductive links in your mind and develop new and empowering links. Use pain and pleasure to your advantage

Change begins in your mind. If you transform your mind, you can transform your body.

FeaturedDaily Dose of Inspiration – I Don’t Care

It’s tough to live a positive life around negative people.

So the best way to protect your energy is to have a “I Don’t Care Attitude”

Dealing with negativity can be quite a downer.  I once had a coworker whose negative energy would wash over me on a daily basis.  In our conversations, she would complain endlessly about everything – work tasks, family, friends, health, and anything else she could think of.  She was also extremely cynical about others, often doubting their intentions and judging them harshly.  Talking to her wasn’t a pleasant experience, to say the least.

Maintaining a level of emotional detachment is vital for keeping stress at a distance.  Not allowing negative people (or anyone for that matter) to put the weight of their inadequacies on your back is vital to your emotional health and happiness.  It all comes down to how you value yourself, and thus believe in yourself.

People who manage their lives effectively are generally those who work internally – i.e. those who know that success and well-being comes from within (internal locus of control).  Negative people generally work externally – i.e. blame others or outside events for everything that does or doesn’t happen (external locus of control).

When your sense of satisfaction and self-worth are derived from the opinions of others, you are no longer in control of your own happiness.  Know this.  When emotionally strong people feel good about something they’ve done, they don’t let anyone’s shallow opinions or spiteful remarks take that away from them.

Truth be told, you’re never as good as everyone says when you win, and you’re never as terrible as they tell you when you lose.  The important thing is what you’ve learned, and what you’re doing with it.
