Love !!!

What is Love ? – these four letter words ?

Love is not a want, Love cannot be a desire.

Love cannot be with one or some – Love is Entire.

Love is beyond the physical and beyond the mental.

Love is the Beauty that you carry deep inside you.

Love is You.cosmic-body

Love is that purity than could clean any impurity that could be defined in this universe.

Love is Eternal.

Love is that essence that fills the gap between you and everything around you.

Love never wants, Love never desires – it just does one thing – It Loves !

Humans try to bring meaning to everything – even Love ? So they try to define Love – Love is A Bliss. Love – thats in you, in me and in every person on this planet today. It cannot be defined – it could only be experienced. Science has made attempts to define Love – in pulses, in the pulsating heart……does it mean my cells are deprived of Love ? Science may confine Love – Nature doesn’t. Nature carries it, nature spreads it.

Love is the light we all carry inside us – The Beauty !

There are crazy definitions out there – don’t make your heart be confused. Heart is Simple and Loves simplicity in everything – it Loves the calmness – it Loves the silence. In silence and calmness Love dances – Love blossoms. Throw away the heaviness in the mind – let calmness and silence take the heaviness away – make it light. A light mind hears music in every sound and hears a song in every rhythm – and then Love dances and makes you dance.

Don’t Love for reasons, neither Love with conditions. Let Love be un-conditional. Give AND take Love unconditionally. Make everyone feel that what you are – touch everyone with Love.

Sink deep with Love. Rise high with Love.

The ones that you have loved – have reached heights – it was never sheer talent – it is collective Love – Your Love. Media told you to Love your superstars and see where they are – far from the ordinary – cause you have made them extra ordinary – with your Love. Not that they don’t deserve it – just that You too deserve it – everybody around you deserves it. Love is powerful. I quote this example – for you may understand what your Love could define the world like.

Love – Coz that is what YOU are !!

 

The Conditioned Mind

What is the conditioned mind ? And when do you call a mind being conditioned ?

A mind that is not in its natural state of being – is a conditioned mind. A mind that is entirely a result of external feedings is a conditioned mind. A mind that is not as per the bearers understanding of the world – is a conditioned mind. Humans have the tendency and capacity to condition their mind in ways that would help them and keep them in good healthy environment. That means a child who knows his best, could condition his mind to match best to a life that he wants – question is does the child really know his best? Or does a child know at all?

Result – un counting few – ones who have lived their lives naturally and did what they thought came very naturally to them and ones who understood their conditioning and could re-condition their minds for their good – REST – all are living with a conditioned mind that is a hard crust of understanding / behavior and beliefs that was pushed into the child’s mind from the external world.

Many people have lived or rather i should say – will live their entire life with this hard conditioning – unknown and unaware of . These are people who are rich, successful (in their own terms or society), famous and even the poor, middle class and et all.

The conditioned mind becomes so much you, that you barely understand or have zero clue of any such conditioning. The way you react to certain situations, the way you treat different people, what you talk, what you eat – oh hell yes – your entire life is a result of your hard conditioning that has happened over the years.

Breaking this hard cocoon that the mind becomes is probably the most difficult task anybody could take.

Without ones self understanding and willingness to get better, the conditioning cannot be given away. There are layers of protection that people carry – ego, fear, attitudes, believes, arrogance, ignorance, narrow mindedness, all these and more masks the conditioned mind.

An Unconditoned Mind – Expands

People who have a bit of self awareness and are willing to break the conditioning are the ones who could Evolve into the Better and are the ones who could live a life of A Bliss.

Unfortunately, today there is a much much larger crowd thats living life in a false belief of there own self and are just sleep walking in their daily doings – Unaware, Unconcerned, Unknown and Uninterrupted. These are the same people who have deviced tools and techniques to torture their own self – unknown and unnoticed.

Today, as the world is, we all need to take initiatives to make our self better, to break the conditioning – for one and all. To break the conditioning and understand the world with more love and compassion, with more beauty and intelligence, with more sense and with more humane.

Most important is to really realize the conditioned mind, without realizing, one cannot -cannot get free from the conditioning. Its like – even to forget – one needs to recall first.

A small attempt to bring this understanding to the larger crowd and to help realize people of their conditioning or to make them better understand their minds – I have compiled some pages for you in my upcoming book – ” The Conditioned Mind ” . The book shall take a deep dive into the world of the conditioned mind and how it happens over years. Also it will carry an understanding from a perspectives of a Phd (Bio-science) friend, Doctor Anuradha Vajjala. She has recently graduated as a PhD from the Kline Lab, Singapore. A wonderful poet, a graceful artist, an intelligent doctor and a beautiful soul, she has been the victim and is a witness to the conditioned mind. She shall give a first hand experience her own inner journey and how she realized her own conditioned mind.

The book is unbiased towards any idea or thought coz it comes from a person who has closely observed his own conditioned mind and today is a liberated soul.

The book was never an intention –  doing good and helping others always was.

Ardhanarishvara – half man half women !!

Ardhanarishvara – a form that depicts Shiv and Parvati together, in one body. The most loved and revered God – Shiva is said to have given a part of him to Parvati or in some writings, Parvati willingness to experience Shiva’s energy made her pulled in Shiva.

I guess because of the male skewed society since ages, the emphasis has been given to Shiv more just because He was a male first. All writings that i have read says that Shiva shed a part of Him to accommodate Parvati.

I have something more to add on to the understanding that has been said and written since ages.

Prior to your reading ahead, do give a read to Sadhguru’s explanation to Ardhanarishvara. He definitely has given a nice explanation, but there are some more that i would want to add on to his explanation and also there is something that i might want to really differ to.

http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/yoga-meditation/demystifying-yoga/ardhanarishvara/

Ardhanarishvara is a form that holds Male(Shiva) and Female(Parvati) in pure balance. This form that is usually said to be of Shiv, could also be said to be of Parvati. So to say that Shiva gave his body to accommodate Parvati does not really sound too perfect to me. Male has been given undue weight-age since ages and its time that a better understanding needs to be developed. The male biased mindset could be seen in everything around.  And is one of the reason for the major turmoil going all around. Why? (Shall write on this in my next chapter)

Everything in nature is at sheer balance. The entire solar system is at balance, nature itself is in balance with everything. This is exactly what Ardhanarishvara signifies. A complete and wholesome balance – half male and half female. Sadhguru mentioned in his article very clearly that this form doesn’t mean two people getting connected – the “feminine” and “masculine” are certain qualities, but he could not be more clear to his audience.

What are those qualities ? What is that balance that even the God depicts ? Does this balance has something to do with the kind of world that have been created today ?

f4c9197528fc53a8bfb8e309dbf3fba1

To go further we need to understand the true nature of a Male and a Female.

Male is all intellect and strength.

Female is all love and beauty.

Ardhanarishvara – is a unison of the true male and the true female. Ardhanarishvara is intellect, strength, love and beauty in one body –  the body of God – Shiva and Parvati signifies these qualities in a male and female. This is the balance of life that God depicts. Every male should have the true nature of female imbibed in him and every female should have the true nature of male imbibed in her.

The world at large is not in balance today. I feel this form, that even God depicts has much much to do with every human being on this earth today. There are many divine souls who have found this balance and have a very good understanding to the balance – inside and outside. The Gods are not just to worship – the Gods are to be lived !!

Winning and Losing – Know your testosterone .

We all know this 2 very very important words in our lives – Win & Lose. Now these are not “just” two words for 99.9999% of the world today. Its a far more important and sensitive term – because winning is not only a Win – its pride, ego, happiness, pleasure as far as –  life for some. On the other hand losing is not only a Loss – its depression,ego, frustration, loneliness, as far as – life for some.

I shall not speak of the extremes here. Taking a Win or Loss to as extreme as throwing your precious life over it – is foolish – extremely foolish.

I shall talk about how much winning and losing is important in ones life. When a person wins a competition – he feels good, confident, smart and happy. On the other hand the person who loses – feels timid, upset, frustrated at times and sad. Its most likely that the winner will win again if faced with the same competitor in future. These are more likely termed as the “winners effect” and the “losers effect”.

The interesting fact is more biological than behavioral. The winners always tends to have a testosterone boost at end of the game and the losers testosterone level dips. This inner biological changes makes the winner smarter, confident and with improved cognitive functions and the loser more timid, less competitive and low on energy in long run. Ideally people who participate in the competition – both have this small boost of the testosterone . After the competition the large differences in the level is visible.

On the other hand for people who do not participate in the competition at all – there is a total loss. Neither they get the benefits of winning nor do they taste the experience that comes from losing. In times of competition, hardships or challenges – the 3rd kind is likely to fail miserably. They are the ones who fall to their knees before even the bells are rung.

There are further more than interesting facts that might help us all to know about winning and losing. Winning continuously gives strong boost to the testosterone level and after a peak one might become over confident and make mistakes in their decisions. So it makes lot of sense to celebrate all wins with more sensibility and understanding.

Not that losers don’t get their bit. The losers should be sporting and realize what their mistakes are and should work to improve them and start preparation for the next competition. Holding on to the loss will make life worse.

And people who keep running from the competition and challenges – You should take a chance – you shall always be on the better side.

Now that you know how testosterone effects you in so many ways and how you could manage the “winning & losing affect ” – i shall also let you know that there are lot of natural ways to boost ones testosterone. Check the link below.

Its a small insight to give you an understanding of how your external behavior and environment stimulates the inner you and also how inner simulation could help you better reciprocate to the outer environment. The study of hormones and their magical affect is pretty vast and complex. None the less knowing whats important is worth.

** A piece of note : People watching their favorite team play on television shows a similar effect when their team wins or the teams losses. So be careful of how you attach your self with the ones on the screen.

FREEDOM !!! ??

Today is the day when we see all Hindustanis and many more people celebrating the Independence Day. A day when India got Independence, a day when the Indians wrestled out themselves from the chains of slavery of the Britishers. A day when the breath of freedom surrounded India’s atmosphere. A day when justice was made to the effort of all the heroes who sacrificed their entire life for the Freedom of the country, for the Freedom of you, for the Freedom of us – all.

But for all the fight, all the sacrifices, for all the doings and all the struggle that lead to this glorious day that we call The Independence Day – just a day of celebration ? Just a Day !

I ponder over this day today. I want to see the Freedom that my country men are celebrating. I see not that what you celebrate today. I understand not what you define as freedom. I see different freedom for different people. Freedom is conditioned on your status, money, power, identity and so much more. Should i call this Freedom ? A man kills and he is set free and another man kills and he was hanged. So could we say – one has the freedom to do whatever they want and another cannot ? A women fears to walk the deadly path where she knows an innocent girl her age was raped and killed . Is she free ? Education today chooses pupil, the child cannot choose education – so is this freedom ? People kill each other in the name of religion – is this freedom ? Superstition still prevails in entire country and people live life on those superstition – is this freedom ? You are overburden with emi’s, with things that you cannot afford – is this freedom ?

OPEN YOUR EYES !!

Where is the Freedom that you are celebrating ? Lets face it – don’t mock yourself – you are more enslaved than you ever where and than you ever think you could have been. You are slave to everything around you. You are like the bird who thought it was free – until one day it thought of flying and realized that the wings are no more – cut long ago.

It is no more the Britishers that are enslaving you. They have gone long ago. You could celebrate as many freedom days as you could – nobody stops you from doing that. But its time you – all – ask yourself – Am I FREE?

You were free – once – in the womb of your mother, not any more. The world was not designed for Freedom – it is only designed for slavery – at large. People who realized the true meaning of freedom – designed a new world around them with others who understood that freedom – many of them.

FREEDOM is the language of heart. A language only a free heart could understand .

 

 

GOD WHERE ARE YOU !!

Everybody worship and everybody tends to search for that intangible – the God. The more people search the more It has been hiding. May be people are looking at the wrong places, may be something is missing in the prayers or may be the search needs to come to an end.

Today i see God everywhere and in everything. The divine is all around us, in the sound of the barking dog, in the feel of the swift breeze, in the singing of the birds, in family, in friends and in me. Today i am no more in search of the divine, the God. I have realized It and that brings an end to the search. The end of search is a new beginning of our relation – His and mine. Until you stop your search, you will not realize Him and until you don’t realize Him – you cannot enjoy the relationship – neither does He.

This blog is a small journey of me – in search of the Holy.

My belief in God was very very strong as a kid. As time passed the belief was challenged many times. Every time something went wrong i challenged my own belief in God – that had been my learning from my environment. People blamed God for all mis-happenings and i followed. After my college a small incident happened and i stopped all belief in the God – i became an atheist (as the society knows it). Couple of years of this behavior, a small bait for the ego mind, this continued.

I don’t exactly remember when, but as i grew up i saw myself visiting to temples again, started chanting some mantras too. There was something which was around me and my prayers became more regular. The mantras always had a soothing effect on me and i did more of it. I had found my God – the Shiva. Everything about Him was so appealing and i could only relate to Him – deeply. I became a Shiva worshiper.

During the same time i also hit upon meditation, a tool to help me come closer to Shiva and also to bring more peace – in and around. My rituals started changing with time. I was meditating more and the prayers were vanishing . Every meditation brought me closer to Shiva. My imagination was running high and i was loving every bit of it. Meditation initially was like kinder-garden  to me. I was playing around in my thoughts and my imagination. One thing i had realized was that no matter what your initial meditation practice be like – it will always make you better – clearer .Even a small concentration or an attempt will show you a path. No matter how much cloudy and vague this path may look, you will always have an inner urge to go further , to explore more, to learn more and to question more.

With every meditation and the with the rapidly changing world around me, i started questioning Shiva. As He was near me i had every right to get the answers (as i was thinking) . Never did i receive any answer from Him. As my mediation kept going deep and my questions becoming louder – a strange thing started happening – Shiva was losing his form. May be because i never got any answer, my belief and my mind both started its own game. There were no answers for rapes, no answers for killing, no answers for corruption –  nothing – nothing at all. Finally one day i lost Shiva – as a form, but there was something new that was arising . As Shiva got dissolved – a energy form took His place. I could feel it very clearly, the energy – without form – no structure – just energy. I dropped my idea of any God in any form. I started talking to people that there is no God – its only an energy. With time my belief in any form of God just evaporated. God became formless for me – It had lost all its identity. With this new energy that i found in place of God, i felt more connected , more in harmony – no form – no identity to remember – that meant no form to concentrate to. This was possibly the first stage where i was moving close to meditation – not my playful form of meditation – but true meditation. My inner was becoming calm and serene. The questions that i had – i never got any answer – but then they also disappeared.

That was 3 years ago. I still meditate, with more serenity and purity. There is no search today for the God – because Divine is everywhere, in everything and in nothing. I have felt Him within me, i have felt Him in my parents, i realize Him in the garden of flowers, i realize Him in the air, i realize Him in birds, i realize Him in the sky, i realize Him in everything and i realize Him in nothing.

This Day Is My Day!

This day is my day.
I wud do anything in my capacity to do what I love to do. This day is the only day that I have.

This day I wud spend for myself, this day I wud work to be happy. This day is precious, this time is precious. This day I wud not let things happen to me; rather this day I wud make the happenings. This day I wud take charge of my life. This day I wud bring most value to my life and to the life of others who are around me. This day I become aware of my doings, this day I seek for what I am, this day I do things that my heart & soul wants me to do. 

This day I give away the fear, fear of everything, cause the fear will hold me back from living my life. This day I give away the worries. This day I take one more step to create the world that I have always believed in. This day I put one more brick to the making of my world – My World !

This day I bring something better for me. This day I do something better for me. This day will not come again, this time will not show up again. 

This day, I write my own story, this day I decide. This day, I stand for myself. This day I believe that I am better, this day I believe I can do much better. This day, I realize my dream. 

This day I will not let go. This day I will not pass again. This day I will not walk that road which is not meant for me, this day I will explore the road that I always wanted to walk.

This day, I will clear the clouds, this day, I will move the mountains – stone by stone. This day I will fly, this day I will open my wings of freedom. This day I will dance, this day I will sing.

Live not surviveThis day I will live. This day I will do more than just survive .

This day is my only day, this day will not come again, this time will not show up again –

This day is my day !! This is my only day !!  

Be Happy !! Be Sexy !! Always !!

So when people ask you, how are you ? What is your reply ? I am good ! Ya…doing good ! I am fine ! For me surviving another day on this planet, breathing, being healthy and some one being there to ask me – how i am ? are way too many reasons to be just awesome, great, beautiful and sexy 😉

So being fine, good, happy or awesome is not that is decided by our environment ( Prison tamed him, taught him to hone his theatrical talents, his seducer’s arts, towards realistic political goals. He went in angry and came out wise .- Nelson Mandela).

Yes agreed their are moments of grief in life, but these are momentary or i would say, the grief stays as long as we want it to and so does happiness !

Its imperative for all of us to understand this to really lead a happy life every moment, every minute and every second. No matter what, you could be happy. Learn to inculcate the habit of being awesome everyday. Walk with awesomeness, smile with awesomeness, talk with awesomeness and even be silent with awesomeness. Feel the energy of life within yourself.
ba9f4f36ca9dc038b6b62c62d78370f9Acknowledge the beauty of your own life. Your work should make you amazingly awesome, but being awesome is something you could always walk with, no matter what you are doing.

Best part of being happy is that it creates your environment to suit your mood. It attracts beautiful things and people around you. It brings reasons right in front of you to be more happy. You create your environment and learning the art of being happy is one of the key to create a happy environment, not for anyone but for yourself. A happy mind always  keeps everyone happy.
awaken-happy

Life is not to lead a great path or to do something extra ordinary or to earn big money or to get fame, these are only a small part of your own extra ordinarily amazing life, a life that you want to live, a life that makes sense to you….so be happy…be amazingly awesome even in just “being”…..Rest is a journey its a doing in process……So smile today, laugh with love, admire with passion, you have all the reasons to be happy……

JUST BE HAPPY & SEXY & AWESOME !!!

I am in the midst of my FIRST FUNDRAISING SOLO ART & PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION in Pune ( https://www.facebook.com/events/1612030825535578/ ). Right from the very beginning of my life, i always had this strong urge of helping people. My heart always wanted to reach out to the needy and i always tried to do my bit in some or the other way. I was always a call away to my friends and still am, never felt why should i ever turn down any ones shout for help, no matter how small it was.

The best part is that i have received a lot in return and when i say a lot..its really a lot – in terms of love, faith, support and friendship . So the good work that we do always comes back and if someone who knows my life closely will always have reasons to support this statement.

Today i write this for 3 reasons :

Firstly, i want more and more people to come and help me in my endeavor to raise 3,00,000 for PROJECT NANHI KALI, an NGO that supports education of underprivileged girl child. Please click and donate. http://ket.to/ForACause  . Every single rupee makes a big difference.

Secondly, i want to tell people that helping some one is easy and beyond any images (1)contentment, all you need is a willing heart and a small effort. We all have big dreams, bigger goals and our own commitments in life and accordingly the priorities are set. A noble work done comes back in various ways to help us to be closer to our dreams & goals. And yes it works magically. We are here to make each others life easy – helping, supporting, laughing and dancing together is what i visualize a community to be like.

Thirdly, i am a very happy man today. With friends, family,known & unknown people coming forward to help me in my journey to make a difference in somebodies life. Every small help makes my heart open three folds in love and gratitude. I am thankful to all who has been supportive & i thank in advance to all who would be supporting. Every small contribution is such a massive help to ones who need it.

When-You-Find-Yourself-In-The-Position-To-Help-Someone

Slow Down…A Bit….

Right from the childhood he was told to be 1st in class, be 1st in competition, be 1st in everything that he did. With the same understanding a child grows – competing and struggling to be 1st or somewhere near the 1st rank. Once the school and college is done – he jumps into the corporate world (most likely), and here the race becomes more gruesome. Every boss and mentor he meets pushes & gives an understanding of the competitive corporate world, about how difficult it is to rise, how much he needs to work and blah blah.

Till one day he sits and realizes – am i here to compete ? am i here to be 1st ? am i here to run my whole life ? am i here to spend most precious time of my life running to be 1st or 2nd, and in which race are we in ? am i here to earn money ? am i here to live a borrowed life ? ………….. Ain’t i here to live a life ?ain’t i here to enjoy the wonders of the world around ? ain’t i here to live everyday and every second of my life in my own way ? ain’t i here to relax and enjoy the cool breeze pass through my hair or to smell the flowers in the garden ? Ain’t i here to spend my days with my loved ones ? Ain’t i here to love animals and humans ?

That one day he gets an understanding of real life. That one day he shreds away an understanding that was imposed or borrowed. From that day life became simpler for him. He found an answer to his questions, and those answers opened a new world for him.images (1)

A world of love, a world that seemed more closer to the creation, a world that shone with the lights of the divine, a world that has ample for everyone, a world of beauty and charm, a world so magnificent that it provided enough to live a peaceful and happy life. A world that didn’t speak of race and competition but a world that spoke of walking hand in hand, understanding, helping and creating.

From that day he listened to his heart very carefully, with no fear of system, with a new understanding of the world around, with more love in heart and with no competition in mind he slowed down his life, spending as much time with himself, with nature , with the loved ones and started doing things which he loved and liked. He not only started getting what he wanted in life, he met peace, love and happiness in his new phase of life.

So slow down a bit. stop ! watch ! enjoy ! Enjoy each second as it pass, with awareness of the beautiful world around us.

The only worth you could give to your life is giving it an experience that’s worth re-living !!slow-down-image
