Always Begging

We throw our feelings out at all,
In a need to feel the ego's call,
Attention attention now everyone,
A want to get noticed by anyone.

It doesn't matter if it's good or bad,
The good attention in plenty we've had,
Some bad attention we don't really mind,
As long as the ego gets all it finds.

Always begging, we want some connection,
Always begging, we're looking for attention,
Always begging, please pay some heed,
Always begging, notice your ego indeed.

Spirituality & Kids

In today's world, look at what we are teaching our kids today. We all want your children to grow into successful humans, securing a good job, making money and want them to be far ahead in the race of life. We will try to make them an all rounder, by making them join cricket, tennis, football, chess, drawing, maths, English and all kinds of extra-curricular activities. We feel that all these qualities will make them a perfect human being. 

But we have stopped emphasizing on teaching our children moral values and spirituality. Without these two basic qualities, not everyone can make it very far in life. Without the moral values the child might think it is alright the take short cuts in life and climb over another person to become successful. Without spirituality they may not have the will power, confidence or a positive attitude to face challenges in life and not just at a work place. We must think if we are preparing our children for the life to come or merely for one task of life.

Dress Your Soul

Our hair looks nice, with face so bright,
The eyes are clear, green lens is here,
But our soul looks plain, with only a name,
No dress for the soul, that is the game.

We must look good, and must look clean,
But the soul remains in a dull low beam,
The soul needs a dress, the soul needs time,
Like the same you give your outer shine.

So look within and give your soul,
Thoughts of pearls and words of gold,
Dress it up, make it look all bright,
The soul will fly high like a kite.

Priorities In Life

A professor once took a big glass jar and put a few big stones into it, until it was full. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They replied Yes. Then he put in a few pebbles, shook the jar and the pebbles settled in. Then he asked his students again if the jar was full. They replied Yes. Then he took some sand and put it into the jar and repeated his question. The students answered Yes. Now if you had filled the jar with sand first, there would be no space for anything.

Now consider that the jar is your life. The big stones are your important things, family, partner, health and children. And consider the small stones were your job, car, etc. all the material things of life, not as important as the big stones. If only the big stones were in your life, it would still be considered full. But if you realize we fill our lives with small stones and sand first, stressing on everything small and not as important in our lives. Take care of the big rocks first and set your priorities in life.

We attract hearts by the qualities we display,
but we retain hearts by the qualities we possess.

Dose of Thought

The test of success is not what you do when you are on the top.
Success is how high you bounce back when you hit the bottom.

A thought in the mind, a flower is born,
A seed inside that the head had spawn,
A seed only grows what lies within,
Good or bad comes when it begins.

A good feeling will seed a lovely flower,
A sad one kills even the shooting star,
You seed the good or seed the bad,
You must decide the feeling you had.

So seed your thoughts with a positive feel,
That seeds life is signed and sealed,
It gives you back what you had sown,
The seed mirrors your feelings shown.

We Are Magnets

The following is my interpretation of some things on earth and significance of 21-Dec-2012. Every living being on this earth is a magnet. As a result of this magnetic force, everything has an aura. Based on our emotions and feelings, we increase or decrease the magnetic force of our aura. There are some temples where people believe their wishes are fulfilled.

Traditionally these temples are strategically located in places on earth where the magnetic force is high. So when we walk around the god's idol in a clockwise direction, we increase the magnetic force of our aura hence increasing energy levels. According to my interpretation, vastu shastra and feng shui are also based on magnetic properties of earth and therefore they benefit us. Even when we do our prayers, the vibrations help increase our magnetic power hence enabling us to attract health, wealth and success in life.

On 21-Dec-2012 the earth will pass through the centre of the milky way, which will be passing through the centre of the magnet which has kept all the planets together. That is the day when we will be able to easily recharge our aura/magnets to the full potential hence reaching a state of enlightenment.

Impressions are made from touch of life,
Impressions create the person inside,
Impressions build our opinions out,
Impressions sometimes create a cloud.

If we don't clear out all the inside impressions, 
That the world threw at us with all its compassion,
Then our mind will run in all the directions,
Leaving chaos in life and causing confusion.

Clear the mind, and leave all your impressions,
Get wise, as you get rid of the impressions,
Feel nice, when you leave your impressions,
Life feels peace when you have no impressions.

Within Us

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters 
compared to what lies within us.

Master Your Emotions

Let me start by telling you a story. There was a man who was afraid of his own shadow. Every day he used to walk fast and even run just to get away from his shadow. Once he decided to run so fast that the shadow will leave him, instead he ran so fast that he died of a heart attack. Only if he would have waited in the same spot for a while, the sun would have come right above him and the shadow would disappear.

In the same way if we just sit on a given emotion and think about it for a while, it disappears. Try this, the next time you get angry on anything, later sit back and think and rethink as to what exactly made you angry, the more you think on it, the more will you realize that getting angry was unnecessary. Same thing goes for sadness. If you sit on it for a while and try to analyze it, you will realize that you were sad or angry for a silly reason and quickly life will seem to bounce back.

The bad looks good and good looks bad,
Temptation makes you wish you had,
If you give in and play to its tunes,
Temptation's here, will kill you soon.

Tempt me no more, tempt me if you can,
Temptation will try to spread its hands,
Will make you weak and beg for more,
Temptation's here, you'll sell your soul.

So think a while before you act,
Else temptation pulls your wisdom hat,
It makes you cry and makes you crawl,
Temptation's here, don't take it home.

Empty Your Cup

Let me start by giving you an example. Take a cup full with tea in it. Now if you pour some more freshly prepared tea into this cup, the tea will over flow as it does not have any space in it. But if we empty this cup and then fill it with the freshly prepared tea, you will enjoy the tea even more.

Like the cup already full of tea, we too are always full of opinions and assumptions for every aspect in life. Unless we completely empty our cups of the presumptions and opinions that we already hold, we will not be able to truly appreciate the new and fresh ideas that life throws at us all the time. That way we will be prepared to take all opportunities of life with the right spirit.
