A new beginning…

images-24It’s already more than a year since her latest achievement!

No new publication! She can’t take this anymore!

She has been dealing with it lightly, thinking it was a procrastination phase, which would get over soon, but it actually seemed to be the fear of performing below her benchmark or losing her popularity gained till date…

Has she been doing this for others or herself?

NO…no…she remembered her favorite author’s words, ‘don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say.’

Inspired by the quote of Barbara Kingsolver-

Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.

– Barbara Kingsolver

 

PS- This previous post of mine seems apt to motivate me during my phase of writer’s block.

Seven Simple Steps for a Contented Life…Christmas special!

Do we ever enjoy the present moment?

He asked us before starting the meditation session. Though very simple his speech did wonders to our small group and we were simply attracted by his message. I thank this motivational speaker from the depth of my heart and share his message with you all…

When today was in future we were worried about it, and when it has become present we take it for granted by letting it go into the past. Why?

Because … we always run after the memories of past and worries of future. When the real thing shows itself we close our eyes to get back into the doubts and worries?

We are all familiar with these wonderful ways to lead a contented life, but we wait for that time when these thoughts are clicked by our minds, and we are ready to go with that Magic Wand of positivism.

Count your blessings-

6

Complaining about inadequacies is our favorite past time and excuse, and we all excel in that undoubtedly.

“What we already possess today is a real blessing.’ Do we count our blessings?

Even though small … a blessing is a blessing

Gratitude-

1

The counting of our blessings hasn’t finished yet and it won’t finish ever…let’s better show gratitude for tour blessings. Thankfulness opens more portals for more blessings to enter.

Introspection-

7

Let’s be honest and consciously contemplate our thoughts. Are we emotionally or socially dependent on others?

Do we need the approval of society for what we do?

‘Listen to all but decide according to your own self.’ Self reflection can guide us throughout without confusion. We are expert advisers for our own selves.

Positivism-

5

A glass half full or a glass half empty shows our optimism or pessimism. If we belong to the former category we are content, but if we fall on the latter side we must do something…

Smiling eyes, friendly words and our sunny disposition produces positive vibes which encircle the others and get hypnotized by this magic.

Changing-

4

Changing with the world is the top priority of today’s lifestyle, but changing our old beliefs which hinder our inner growth is the topmost priority of our own life.

Sharing-

3

 

‘Ripe fruits if not shared today will get rotten tomorrow, don’t preserve, and be magnanimous; your share will return back to you one day. It’s guaranteed.’

Celebration-

2

An achievement is always worthy of celebration, no matter big or small. Celebrating our achievements gives us a boost for further advancement.

‘Live the present moment happily, your life will be filled with happiness…’

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Indestructible joy

Why this life is so tough on me? Why it’s always me? When my worries are going to end? How can I be happy?

To answer these questions, some great human beings have been appearing as the ambassadors of peace to help out the world. Their names doesn’t matter because they come up with a thought; a thought that needs to get nurtured in every single heart. These kind souls come in different guises and versions, but their philosophy is same, and that is: ‘spreading peace through inner knowledge.’

These ‘ambassadors of peace’ and ‘fountain of ‘knowledge’ have a miraculous effect on everyone’s mind; because they clear all the doubts instantly. Their simple and clear message is so effective that it gives the feeling of ‘thirst being quenched.’

Each of their messages predicts the situation of weary hearts and provides a solution affecting the inner entities. Their words and the relevance of their message with everyone’s life fill every heart with pure joy and contentment which is indestructible.

‘Inner peace makes us kind, and kindness brings happiness that finally turns into joy, and that joy is indestructible.’ Prem Rawat

Instead of taking unnecessary actions to avoid the outer worries, let’s take just one action of discovering inner peace. That will bring incredible change in ourselves… because awareness starts from within.

“The truth, the reality, the beauty, the prosperity, and the peace you are looking for — you never lost it. Never… It was always within you.” -Prem Rawat

A big salute to all the great human beings who are endeavoring to propagate the genuine thought of gratification towards life.

PS- Inspired by the peace messages of Prem Rawat.

Be yourself, it’s your journey…

1288944 copyNow she realized that she was unnecessarily considering the world around her as her lifestyle-patroller. In fact, she was haunted by her myth.
She had lived her life thinking what people will think of her. Will they approve of her or not?
Though confused she always tried her best to satisfy them. Her state of mind depended on the feedback of that invisible-jury.
But now she’s conscious and holds herself responsible for handing them the authority to judge her.
She mocked at her situation. Without regret, she’ll proceeded further.

Life in her wants to live now.
She’ll start afresh.
Her real-journey will begin now…..

P.S- In our lifetime we meet with different people belonging to different groups and backgrounds; they join us and leave us according to the circumstances and time, but we always think them as the lifestyle patrollers. Our confused minds tell us that they are always staring at us.

Don’t be afraid to be yourself……

Citizens of Earth… by TPRF

imagesIn my previous post, I mentioned that ‘peace education’ should be the initial part of a human life because peace is a weapon that can kill the negativity prevalent around. If we arm ourselves with peace, it can cast aside our worries and brings us under joy. As the need for peace is increasing day by day, various organizations and individuals are putting their efforts to make the people aware of this simple fact PEACE.

Today I’m sharing TPRF’s peace message & video “Citizens of Earth” with the hope that peace will reside in our hearts forever.

A New Pollyanna

Image

These days I’ve started looking at the world from a different perspective; it seemlike I’m reliving the life in a new way like Pollyanna.  

“When you look for the bad in mankind expecting to find it, you surely will.” (Pollyanna- a glad girl) 

Pollyanna a best-selling 1913 novel by Eleanor H. Porter is now considered a classic of children’s literature, with the title character’s name becoming a popular term for someone with the same optimistic outlook. 

The novel’s success brought the “Pollyanna principle” (along with the adjective “Pollyannaish” and the noun “Pollyannaism”) into the language to describe someone who seems always to be to find something to be “glad” about no matter what circumstances arise. Wikipedia  

So thanks to Pollyanna’s  contribution to our way of thinking and making our lives full of gratification. 

At this point of time lots of thoughts want to find a way from my mind on to the paper. Well I will try to control them for the time being, ‘coz I want to bring them out beautifully during A-Z Challenge 

From now my job will be to:  

  • look at things with positivism, 

  • laugh on the issues that irritate me, 

  • understand that time will always change it will never be the same, 

  • be flexible and clear, 

  • feel complete from within; my breaths are the proof of this. 

  • do everything without expectation

 

While writing for the challenge, genres may differ but the message will be same, that is to find good and appreciate. Hopefully this will reflect in my blog posts throughout the challenge….

Happy Writing! 2014 A-Z badge

A Wise Fool

Write Tribe- Festival of Words- Day 5 – brother-and-sister

share a personal experience that will inspire

 

One fine morning I and my younger brother were waiting for the school bus,  I was in grade 7 and my brother in grade 3  at that time. My brother was holding his craft project very carefully which he had to submit for the school craft exhibition, so that day out of excitement he got ready before time and persisted to leave for the  bus stop.  As we continued to wait, one of our neighbors stopped there and started inspecting our things.

My brother’s project was a nicely laid beautiful house with a garden around and cars parked in it. Our neighbor’s praise for my brother’s project made me feel like a winner because I was the one who did all that for him, putting my own project aside. I was about to tell the reality but remained quiet because my brother’s face was gleaming with joy.

On the other hand my project was not at all noticed as it was a simple flower vase, made in a little time left after completing my brother’s showy project. My silence made me foolish at that time (because I could see comparison in our neighbor’s eyes) but I felt myself wise because my silence gave my sweet little brother immense happiness.

Since then it became my habit and I enjoyed being wise from inside.1507549_10152103487910435_785877824_n

Every now and then many incidents occur where our giant pride willingly becomes a dwarf for the sake of harmonious surroundings.

Every time when I lose myself, I gain a heart. I love that wise fool in me. I consider it as a best weapon for bringing in peace.

P.S –  I wish that this aspiration  of mine survives forever…

This is one of my old posts, and I truly get inspired after recalling those pure and lovely childhood memories…

A Second Chance

She had seeded inside her the guilt of being an incompatible partner and had considered all the […]

Imagination

 She was on seventh heaven because she was going to watch the movie based on her favorite novel which she’d read several times since her childhood, but while watching movie she felt claustrophobic as the visuals of the movie didn’t meet the standard of her imagination with which she’d lived that novel again and again.     […]
