The Secret Formula: If you wanna be happy!

Let me begin by asking all a very simple question, “how many got up today and were happy or excited to go for work?”

You don’t have to answer, everyone know what I am referring to, and the answer to this in the affirmative, would be, not many of us.

Have you ever wondered, why this is so? Have you ever thought about the life that we are leading or for some, end up leading, what this entire activity is all about? For those who like the scientific way of dealing with things, what the cells in our body, which by the way we have more cancerous cells than normal in our body, end up behaving the way they do?

Without getting into the complexities of the unknown and not getting into what is right and what is wrong, and not even sullying it with my opinions, just sharing few things, which have worked for those who have tried, might work for us as well, and for those who don’t really believe in the world of swami or sadhu, let me tell you the source of the same is none other but a well trained scientific doctor:

  1. First thing first, accept who you are, don’t try to create a mask, helps you get rid of the wannabe’s syndrome and several bindings that come along with it as a consequence
  2. Eat consciously, sit consciously and think consciously: being conscious of how one was meant to do the activities and not how one would want to do the same can do wonders
  3. Even if you are not able to get over the “I” syndrome, and even if you were to say that you love yourself the most, then it should be a given that you work on your immune system to cure yourself by doing at least 10-15 minutes of yoga or any form of exercise in the right manner every day
  4. On a personal and professional front both, don’t react to a situation, instead think and respond to it in a manner taking all considerations in mind, without being too emotional about the same, at the end of the day, it is just a situation that needs to taken care of, and nothing is serious enough to be taken seriously, after all you are still living and not dead
  5. On a more moral note:), hate and anger do more harm to you than others, so avoid doing the same

And then he goes on to say, that if you live your life in a simple and conscious way, you will see the symptoms which are making you uncomfortable seem to be disappearing and finding a new expression in the form of ever so craved peace of mind.

Try for yourself and see the difference 🙂

What is it?

I used to wonder at times as to how robotic our lives have become. One gets up in the morning knowing that at such a such time, one needs to be in office, knowing that at such a such time one needs to have one’s lunch, knowing that at such a such time one would go back home, knowing that while going home one would be caught up in the ever increasing traffic on the streets, knowing that after coming back home one would be tired enough not to venture out for familial entertainment and if the better half happens to be working then there wouldn’t be any discussion about the same, knowing that one would watch Big Boss starting from today before hitting the bed the very night.

And on the weekends, one would get up late as one wishes to get over the tiredness one accrues during the week, do the weekend chores of getting the groceries etc and end up watching a movie or spending one’s time in a mall finding means to spend the hard earned money and to get rid of so called boredom in ones’ lives.

For most of us the life would look something like what I have tried to describe above. Have you ever given it a thought as to what is it that’s making us do the same? What is it that guides our day-to-day lives? What is it that is not giving us time to ponder over what kind of life we would ideally want to lead? What is it that is stopping you from pursuing what you like doing? What is it that is proving to be a hindrance when it comes to you venturing out for hobbies which you like the most? What is it that is making you think what if?

Have you ever realized how little a time we have in this world? Have you ever been able to figure out what is that one thing which you would want to accomplish in your life? What is that one thing that gives you more happiness and satisfaction than any other thing in this World? And if you have been able to figure out the same, then why is it that you are not doing that? Why is it that most of us are not able to find the courage to drop out of the rat race and do the abnormal? Why is that most of us end up following the tide and continue to do so till we attain an age where it is no more feasible to do that one thing?images

The destiny lies in your hand. The choice is yours. The answer lies with none other than you. No pundit, no sadhu baba, no jyotishi can help you find your answers but you yourself.

So, are you ready to take up the challenge and figure out that one thing which you would want to do all your life? Do you have the guts to swim against the tide? Do you have it in you to do the abnormal without worrying about the consequences?

As far as success is concerned, the very definition lies with you. It is you who defines what success means to you. It is you who, when you retire, would reminisce and put a stamp of sorts on the life you did live. It is you who can decide whether you want to make your life a success or repent, say 30-40 years down the line, saying, “kaash, main ye kar leta or leti”. 

If you are reading this today, then think about it my dear friend, because zindagi na milegi dobara and kal ho na ho.

OMG!

After a long time, I have had the pleasure of watching one of the most meaningful of movies I have ever seen. With such a versatile actor as Paresh Rawal to adorn the star cast, the movie is in all senses a must watch.

What amazes me the most is the manner in which  a mystical concept such as God is presented and catered to in such a rational and logical manner. It is indeed a blow to the many gurus and sadhus who claim to be representatives of the Almighty on Planet Earth.

The sheer grit and simplicity of the protagonist is depicted in a very non-partisan and in an unusual way at the same time upholding the integrity of middle class values and essence of life.

All in all, I would recommend all of you, if you haven’t watched the movie till date, to go and watch it, for there is something for each and every one of us to learn and admire from the movie.
