Why are we running? Yes this may strike to you as why this question? What does this mean? But it is something that I observed! When we are kids, we want to grow up fast, be an adult. Thinking we will get some freedom. In adulthood we think about promotions and a perfect partner. In middle age about children. Old age is property issues or health problems or loneliness. This habit is to such an extent that we never live the moment and think about the next. In school thinking about getting into a good college then to a good job then to promotions and this goes on. Just stop for a minute! Yes planning for the future is essential but not at the cost of your present. Live your childhood, better study and acquire knowledge in college. Jobs and properties and children will happen eventually as a by product! Failures and emotional breakdowns are also part of the process. It will all happen. But it all depends on how you look at it! Try to figure out your stabilizer! The one that calms your storms. It may be a person or book or place or spirituality or faith. Because at the end of the day even a optimistic person needs optimism! Balance is what is required in living the moment and using it being aware and productive for the future. You have the solutions to your problems alone and only you have the potential to balance. The mind is what needs to dealt with. Take a pause everyday to introspect and improve. Keep trying! I'm too!

Whomever I talk to nowadays is stressed about something or the other! It's sad that some have forgotten optimism! The issue or situation is not with you! You're free! It's the life which takes turns! In this busy lifestyle don't forget the essence! Everyone is different inspite being similar. You can have your own thought process and identity. It's not important to follow the crowd or the words of the trustworthy all the time. You can think for yourself. There is no harm in moving out of a job or place or relation if you feel burdened or terrible about it. It's not always possible to communicate what you feel to the other person. Take the responsibility of how you feel and take action which you feel is right! You're an individual and you have your own essence. Maybe things are not good now but they will turn out how they are supposed to eventually! Take a 2 minutes break every now and then and introspect! It's you who is on top of the priority list! If you are not relaxed and at easy with yourself, how will you be able to cope up with life events? Life is a beautiful road with hurdles in it but it's worth going on a ride! Accept your essence, your individuality and make time for yourself. You can't give explanations to everyone everytime. It's fine if you know the truth yourself. Just be at ease with yourself. Keep trying. I'm too!

There will be certain situations and time periods in which you will feel alone and lost! But that is natural. It just needs to be analysed wisely! Its not necessary that the situations and people we have in our lives right now will be with us for the entire lifetime! This fact needs to be assimilated. Imagine yourself on a path and others on their own. Maybe the paths meet or go parallel but it will take it
its own course. Its hard to accept but one needs to learn, let go and move on. This doesn't mean you become emotionless or introvert! Just keep moving and living as the path goes on. Remember its the lessons which needs to be picked up and embraced and not clinging on the life situation. I know it's easier said than done. But you are strong and perfect in your own way. Changing and improving are different. Change happens to your very existence but improving is you remain yourself but just improvise little things for your own good. This life is yours and precious don't lose hope in life path. Just keep moving and improving. Its difficult sometimes but you can do it like you did before. Keep trying. I'm too!

Why are we running into different directions in search of peace or happiness? Why do we expect from others? Is changing jobs or people or relationships the solution? Why are we still holding onto relations and situations that hurt us so bad? Usually the answer is " hope" that everything will fall into perfect place and we will be happy and fulfilled. But is it possible? It is only possible when we start working and understanding our own self! We expect because we are scared from our own shortcomings and weaknesses. Spare a moment and ask yourself, are you treating yourself right? Why am I expecting? Why do we have a fear of being alone? Instead of working on our own potential and evolving we are stuck into situations we never thought of. Just stop and look for our own way of peace and improving because that is what we need to do and things will fall into perfect places! Look for your own spirituality and your own Truth! Relax, the path is long. Keep walking and trying. I'm too!

Why except? Why not transform it to accept? Two small words with deep meanings and holding a powerful key! Why people keep the past exceptions with present life situations? Usually you will hear "let go concept" as a solution. But is it easy? Truthfully no! Why? Because have you stopped and questioned yourself! Are you comfortable? Happy? Where are you going? Where do you want to end up? Do you have a vision for yourself? Here is the key which is missing. "ACCEPT!" Once you are in peace with your own self things gradually they transform themselves! It won't happen in a day that you become aware about this accept concept. It is not applied in a day! But it is a continuous vigilant process. Accept the reality of the situation. Analyse truthfully where you were right or wrong according to your definition! Others can never say what the situation really was or what is the morality in it? Because you were the one who experienced it. Create your own analysis process, become aware and try to accept. If your past "demons" are still after you, they will haunt you and you yourself will ruin everything. And keep in mind nobody can harm you, make you sad or do anything for you! It's YOU and always you who can do that! Companions can be your support systems but the transformation has to happen within. Every moment be aware! Remind yourself about your own existence! This way, I hope you will not indulge in things, persons and situations which are not fulfilling for you. Keep becoming aware and keep trying. I'm too!
P.S ~ Special gratitude to my companion with whom I had a great discussion!

There is so much more to life then just the usual routine of human beings. Set yourself free from your own false boundaries! Some are still stuck in the past chapters, some in the present routine and some worried about what will happen next? It took hundreds of years of history for the formation of the society and now it's more of a baggage than the glorious representations. The world functions onto something mysterious which science still needs to "discover" and we need to analyse. It's your subjective truth that takes you to your imaginary route not the social norms. Being unaware and frustrated, changing jobs, places or partners you really are missing the cause of this longing. Sit and give yourself time! Because in this busy and ambitious lives we are forgetting ourselves. You're the one who needs to decide your norms and functioning. But it doesn't indicate to be a rebel or hurting sentiments but just being comfortable just being with yourself!! The path is unknown and long but not so difficult that you stop walking. Keep trying! I'm too!

Why is it so hard to change our own perceptive? What is it which compells us to be rigid about our view? Some state the answer as EGO. It's easier said then done! Let's analysis this process by an example not religious but a day to day one. For one person eating with fork is the way. For another eating with hands is the best. You put these people together in a room with food. You can imagine the amount of explanations both can give about their ways. But why is there a need to explain?? Again ego plays a role here. It's a circular path. You're raised with some set of rules, explanations and taught about a way of living. Similarly other person is raised in a different way. But till the time you start analyzing about the teachings, you've become habitual to the taught practises. Now the ego plays it's part. It tries it's best state proves and explanations for your ways of living. Even if you want to live in a different outlook, the ego gives you reasons not to. The instant thought is "I've been doing this for years." Imagine even for a day to day activity, this thought process goes on and on. Now you can understand why people are sentimental about religious practices because such practices are taught with emotional thought process.
There are 4 divisions in this thinking process as said in the Vedas. A thought travels in between 4 stoppages i.e. Manas, Chitta, Buddhi and Ahankar. Let's understand this. For instance, "I would like to donate money." Manas just observes that a thought is there, Chitta starts the thinking process. Should I give the money? Is this orphanage or NGO okay? Confusion or duality is created. The thought is transferred to Buddhi. The analysis happens. You come to a conclusion. Many times the thought is transferred back to Chitta. If not it is transferred to Ahankar and decision to taken place.
Imagine the amount of processing is going on just for one thought! The amount of body energy we consume in seconds. How to get rid of it?? Vigilance is the key. Just be aware and observe. The mind has a tendency of forgetfulness but keep on observing. You don't have to do anything. Just be natural and loose and just observe.
It will take time to initiate such a thing but just remind yourself of it. Keep trying!! I'm too.
