Dearest darlingest society! Take a chill pill!!

Dear society,

With all the nurturing and protection that you have given to all of us, it would be my divine pleasure to request the same nurturing and protection for your own self. The pace at which, we the human beings are discovering our true identity and leaving the safe harbor of fright and sticking to the status quo, there will not be a time too far away when the “society” does not exist as an entity in itself.

What I mean simply is this: the society teaches us and trains us to follow the herd. Go to a certain kind of school, have best grades, land into the best colleges, get picked up for doing a job for someone who themselves have followed the herd, and surprisingly, the method which takes away more than 2 decades of every creative and blooming human life, does not teach us how to face the uncertainty: the only thing which is most certain in Every human life. Similarly, society has taught us to make relationships with only those kind of people whom we “should” make a relationship with as per the societal definition, and has taught every human mind not to follow their heart and soul, even when they yearn for something beyond the societal norms and that is the right path for them.

Where are we leading towards by following this scarcity mindset? Be like everyone else, wear the same kind of clothes that everyone does, think the same thoughts that everyone else thinks, and lo and behold baby….you have landed up in the grave without doing anything significant like everyone else does.

In order to be really living beyond the things that scare us and to open up to the things that Universe wants us to experience, we must know that the safest way to go is to break free from the chains that have held us back since the time we were born. This is a pattern imprinted in our minds for long, and leaving it will and has to cause the discomfort. We have to make the decision: either to feel the pain of regret or to feel the pain of challenging the status quo. Since it is pain, it will cause suffering. Beyond suffering lies the solution. We all are here to be the best version of the solution for every brave heart witnessing us, so that they get an inspiration to light up the fire that ignites within them.

So with all my heart and soul, dearest darlingest society, I will make sure that no one follows you in giving up on their true lives and following their hearts. I do not know how many folks will read this post, what I do know for sure is that whoever reads this post, will connect with this from a sinew of their being, and will take an action to be the architect of their lives instead of being the manager of circumstances.
It is we, every single one of us, who create the society.

Be crazy and foolish enough to listen to that whisper which your heart is making with you. With it, lies your happiness. And happiness of every other human being.

Before we know, we all will be flukes

image

Almost 3 months ago, me and my parents moved into our new apartment. One of our distant relatives and father of one of my school friends, liked the apartment so much that he also made the plans to shift into one.

And then an unexpected thing happened. Within 2 months, this relative of ours passed away at a very young age. His son had to be slapped and forced to cry before his father had to be buried.

This is life. It takes unexpected turns we never imagined. The time to do the right thing is Now. Before we know it, you and I will be flukes. What will remain thereafter is the would haves and the should haves. Do not let that happen to your life.

As you step into yourself and out into the world, check the ego at the doorstep. Make the conversations as if they were the best and the most precious conversations you could ever have. Because that is the truth. We all are here to nurture the human connection that we all share: beyond the societal fragments and boundaries.

Make time to do the right thing, only for the reason that it is the right thing and your heart knows that it is the right thing. Any other logic or question won’t hold true then. Most importantly, make giving love a priority: irrespective of waiting for the other person to show up to you with love. And do the right thing always. Because it is The Right Thing. And we may never know, till when we are alive to be waiting for the right time, as the right time is the Now.

Stop the self-loathing cycle, baby!

We homo sapiens
Carriers of divine emotions
Sometimes life plays with us
Sometimes we play with life
Either ways, we do not know

What we do know for sure
Is that
There is no roadmap
Where our lives will turn
Wherever it may be
We need to trust God, The Superpower
To align things right

Till the time things do get right
I urge you
To cease the self-loathing
To accept and love everything
To own your life
To be proud of Everything
To think positive about people for whom the world says you shouldn’t
To adore and respect the people who f*** you off
Because what you give to others, begins by you giving it to yourself
To set your own boundaries in life
To follow your heart
Let the tears flow
Let life happen
Let the Greatest Power perform its magic
Whatever that magic means

And most importantly
Be loving to your emotions
Deep within them
Is the seed
That will bear the fruit
We never imagined

Do this when nothing is working out

imageWhen nothing is working out, you need to work the things out. How to do that? Get out of yourself.

Simply stated, when everything in your life seems to be taking a turn you never expected, go help other people out. No matter where we are, we are always in a position to help other people out who are not better off than us. We may always serve as a helping hand for someone who really needs it.

The best part is, you can do it even when your life is not working as you desired. You can do it even when you are misunderstood or judged. You can do it even when you cannot help yourself out.

So go out there and make other people happy. This makes you remember your role of transforming the world. Transformation begins with you, and you need to do that to others even though you don’t feel like doing it.

What is the end objective?

En route to New Delhi. Stacks of plantations line up the way. Arijit Singh plays in the background. Abundance of nature and music provoke thinking of the real human mind. It takes us away from our chattering monkey mind that is hunted by the normal voices of the society, and makes us meet the infinitely abundant power we possess to think greatly and get into the depths of ourselves.

No matter where we are in life, getting into the nature is the best thing we could do to ourselves. It reminds us of the end objective we all are here. The surprise is that we ALL are here for the same objective: to make things better. Whether we go up and meet the clients, whether we are imparting great back-end work, whether we run a beauty salon, whether we clean the dishes or whether we run a multimillion dollar business: Every Single One of us has a common goal: to make things better. To make people whom we serve feel more awesome. To shine a light that serves as a lighthouse for the world.

When we step out into the world with this objective: life does not make us the manager of circumstances, rather makes us the CEO of our destiny. Yes, even though we are doing the work to make things better, we will stumble. What we need to remember is that we are having the baton of world transformation upon our shoulders, and there is no way we can get away from this task. When this happens, we stop doubting people around us, we stop making misperceptions about them, we stop getting angry with other people and start witnessing the magic. We start witnessing the depths of every human being, we start understanding them from the core of their hearts, we start accepting them with who they are, because we realise that every human being is a work in progress, perfection is in the eyes of the beholder and we all may reach it once we accept people for who and what they are.image

This is our job # 1

Every person you meet is an irreplaceable child or parent to someone. A dangerous human being standing in front of you is definitely a source of happiness for someone else in their life. Who appear strong and laughing are fighting a difficult battle within.

Our job number one in this world is to be superkind to everyone. Even when they throw stones at you, you shower them with your blessings. We all treat other people with our level of understanding. What we give to others is a direct reflection of what we feed ourselves with.

The best thing is, parts like anger, discomfort and hatred are very difficult to play, because they are not the real you. On the other hand, being at peace and composure even while filing a lawsuit is easy. We just have to consciously make the choice to set the time-table for our mind and then act upon it.

Consider the following:
1. Never leave your mind empty. Always feed it the food to eat. The most successful are the humblest because they are always learning.
2. Start reflect over what you have learned. As you ponder over the great mind food you have been feeding your mind, it will become ingrained in every sinew of yourself and come out as a part of you.
3. Share the knowledge. Researches have shown that we retain 10-20 % of what we read and as much as 90 % of what we share.
As always, you are always the creator of your destiny by making the choices under fire.

When you shouldn’t, you NEED to!!

If only you did the 5 small things you visualised this morning, on a priority, the game would have been totally different.

If only you would have sat in silence for a few minutes instead of asking for an advice that you intuitively knew, wouldn’t make a difference.

If only you had the audacity to say no to what is not right.

If only you remembered to fill your self esteem instead of someone else’s.

If only you made that phone call that would have made all the difference.

If only you would have chosen the strength training + cardio instead of choosing cardio daily.

If only you would have not started that chat and let life present itself to you.

Taking all these actions would have made the life greater. Definitely.

Just one love-filled advice: when you fall down, be gentle with yourself. Life is too short to fall in the vicious circle of self criticism. When we criticise ourselves, undoubtedly that spills out in all our conversations, whether we are aware or not. If we choose to be loving for all actions we take, if we decide that the only world that matters is the world inside my ears, positivity floods your mindset and prosperity floods your lifeset. This is game changing.

Love yourself. Even when you shouldn’t. Because you Need it the most then.

What if your life had to be researched in Harvard?

What if the way you lived your life was to be researched in Harvard? What if the generations to come will draw inspiration from the way you lived your life? What if your life was the best story told, ever? What if you somehow cracked the code to living an extraordinary life?

The universe is based upon principles hat hold true, no matter what the outer reality is. One of the basic principles is that your thoughts, feelings and actions create our reality. Seemingly negative situations are just there to make us aware of ourselves: that is pure power, pure creativity. Once we realise and practice this truth, our happiness and reality begin to change and we witness awesomeness that we had never witnessed ever.

There are no extra people on this planet. Each one of us has a treasure of gold that is shouting to be polished and see the light of the world. We all affect the world by the way we appear to them. This is a great job of responsibility to make the world amazingly awesome. So what is the chapter you are writing in your life today?image

How to become more powerful?

Power comes from acting on your commitments. Taking action comes from making goals in the first place. Goal-setting comes from desire for a bigger and better life. Desire for a bigger and better life comes from being happy, and never satisfied with the current circumstances.

It is our responsibility to be co-creators in evolution. Since the world is not yet over, the need for evolution is one of the fundamental needs for our happiness.

So in order to be more powerful, challenge the status quo. Shake up the world. Drive change. Let go of the need to be liked by everyone else. Respect yourself and your values, and go get up and claim the power that is already within you, screeching to be expressed.

This is a form of love

Just had dinner at a self-service restaurant in Patiala. As the restaurant was self-served, it was quite clear that customers had to take even water by themselves. However, the servers in the restaurant had a protocol to serve water to every guest without water on their table. Since I have a protocol of not having water while eating, I politely refused to the first glass served to me. In two minutes, I was served water by another server; and again, I refused. In the next two minutes, I was served a third glass of water which I didn’t refuse.

Great management lesson here: wowing your customer is our collective responsibility as a team. Great service does not hold any single person accountable for the profits or losses as a unit. Our results are as an entity.

If someone who gets paid very little can do this, can we not leave our ego at our doorstep every single day before we present ourselves to our customers? Think over it…ego is the common thing. Transcending it will make your customers your raving fans. Ultimately we are all in the business id transforming lives: how we do it for the positive or negative is going to determine our destiny as well.
