I am..

Everyday we wake up and repeat things to ourselves, sometimes positive ones other times negative ones. We never really pay attention to our thoughts or words.  People curse other people for things and situations.   It is just a natural way of life  anx it just happens while you drive that you curse the driver in front of you for driving like an ass or that you repeat to work colleagues about how tired and stressed you are etc.

Being True to yourself

We often lie to ourselves and in doing that we hurt ourselves deeply.  People lie to themselves in relationships or in their career or in other domains of life.  If you lie to yourself then you are never going to be in peace.  Lets say somebody dreams of pursuing a career in accountancy but is made for arts and photography.  That person will never be satisfied no matter how much he rises in the accountancy field.  On the other hand he might not even be able to complete his studies as he is constantly lying to himself. However if he sits down and understands what is it that he truly wants then he will move in the right direction.  To dream is in itself a lie, why do I say that? If a person dreams of being a millionaire but is not prepared to work for it. How will he or she become one? They will instead sit down and day dream.

The pursuit of Happyness

The world in which we live has been both good and bad people, good and bad things and this has been certainly the case since the beginning.  That is probably how the world functions. Now believe it or not but there is more positivity than negativity around us, the reason why I can say that is because we are still alive. If that was not the case, then we would have been dead or assassinated by now.  If we trigger our mind in that direction, we will automatically start seeing the positive side of life as a result of which you will automatically experience happiness  from positive situations, people, events etc.

The fundamental laws of Karma

We often think that if we have positive circumstances in life, then that is probably due to our good karma and if we have negative circumstances then it’s most probably due to our negative karma.  There are three things that can be classified as karma. Firstly that is done by our body in other words all the actions done by our body.  Secondly everything that we express verbally and thirdly everything that we do by means of our thoughts. Any action done by the above described ways with an intention or motive is basically karma either positive or negative. Anything done without an intention or motive unintentionally is “akarma” or inaction.  In simple terms, if there is awareness and consciousness involved, then we can called it karma or action. On the other hand if there is no awareness or consciousness involved, then it is “akarma” or inaction.

Meditation: The What, The Why and the How

Everyone must have at least heard of the word if not tried it.  What is essentially the meaning of meditation? if you google it you will find a ton of results defining it and even more ways of doing it. Most of us are also aware of the benefits of it but honestly speaking, we do not practice meditation as it is boring to sit quietly in a corner of the room when there is so much happening on facebook/whatsapp or the media. People are more bothered with chatting and giving likes as it supposedly brings more excitement and entertainment.  If you analyse these are just elements of distracting you from connecting with yourself.
