  • Constitution of Ideologies

    Goals. The core idea to accomplish a purpose in life is to have a Goal, a goal so definite that it should serve to complete the ambitions of life and the only catalyst responsible for these effects are the entity called dreams. The innate wishes of the mind becomes a channel to draw inspiration from the energy and motivates your soul to move ahead and achieve the impossible. Later, to define you as a human being you become to be.

    Truth. The determination to seek within oneself and to discover who am I? Helped me to raise a level of introspective thinking, the unbiased analysis lead to the realisation of every mistakes I happened to commit in the past and the provocative lessons learned from the resulting failures on a personal, private as well as professional grandeur. But that definitely was not disappointing since they built the foundation of my very own personal integrity and a commitment to never repeat the same mistakes again, for this very thought has evolved to become the principle theory of my life to. 

    “Lead, Guide and Serve”.

    Values. The fundamental motto of my life now gave a true sense of direction and the confidence that the momentum was being carried on the right paths which lead to final glory. I have grown to become a happier person. A total belief in my ideologies and an absolute trust on the capabilities felt the need of attaining the precise set of values to satisfy the conduct of my goals. Self-esteem, satisfaction and happiness is achieved when your goals and activities are congruent with your values. That you consider really important. The values were focused upon achieving goals related to my own personal, family and material goals through self-development, determination and discipline.

    “The time is always right to do what is right”

    Action. An organised plan of action was set forward with an idea to complete all the work due and to analyse the tasks ahead in order of importance. Organised plan of action is the key to all success while action without planning is the cause of all failures. Starting with writing down all the goals on a piece of paper and deciding which has to be done first and which has to be done last. Which is more important and which is less important. Completing it in a day to day basis. This was the master skill to success. It does not depend on education or on your upbringings. Work Hard & Work Smart.

    “Either you are working to achieve your goals or you are working to achieve others goal”

    Analysis. Our subconscious works on the list while the body is asleep, solving problems and deriving solutions in the mind which results in having the next day progressively filled with full of ideas, intuitions or answers which would make for a productive day. With a list it helps in analysing the progress and stages. When you complete each task there comes a wonderful feeling of accomplishment.

    “Happiness is the progressive realisation of a worthy ideal”

    Future. The value of time is directly proportional to the success of the future working on pivotal tasks and organised actions helps monitoring the valuable use of time and that alone would be enough to make you an effective person and be more productive with improved performance and attain rewards by a greater percentile. Every task you do should accomplish something for your future. Most people spend as much as 80% of their time spend dealing with their problems and difficulties of the past and 20 % of the opportunities of the future. Successful people analyse task on the basis of their impact on future. Important tasks have effect on future and unimportant tasks have importance in the present or future.

    “The futurity of decision is the key to measuring the values”

    Focus. You have to concentrate on one thing and accomplish it in a single stroke and that is the key to success. Single handling. Start with working on a task and staying on it until it’s finished. It’s all right to loose on some other tasks comparatively less pivotal while you were focusing on to achieve the most important work. Its fine because you are doing the most important task which will impact on your future rest assure everything else. If you do task which bare importance you will feel accomplished and enthusiastic than doing tasks which aren’t worth anything or achievement. Stress and anxiety comes by doing tasks which are not important. So concentrate single minded on one thing at a time.

    “Concentration is that ability to not think about anything”

    Time. The more successful you are you will learn to measure your time in minutes instead of hours, days or weeks. Keep track of what you are spending your time on. Discipline yourself to measure your time every single day. Procrastination of work is a very common phenomena and there are two kinds of procrastination. Positive procrastination where you indulge in doing low priority tasks. Negative procrastination where you delay on most important tasks. Urgent task are not important always and future tasks are seldom important so work mainly on important tasks. Keep an attitude of NOW / NEVER. Be the kind of person who does thing urgently and right Away. Every successful person has a sense of urgency. Get your job done fast. Take a task and break it down to slices and work towards it have a SENSE OF URGENCY. Important work requires chunks of time. Most important work can only be done at 90 minutes. So cut out lots of time for a task. Administrative work and creative work cannot be done at same time. Come early. Start early. Travel prepared and work with that travel time. Pay very close attention to conversation. Less time taken and without interruptions.

    “Time and Tide waits for no man”

    Delegate. Delegate simply means that if your goal is to earn 50,000 $ a year then it is 25 dollars an hour. So every hour value your work at 25$ and if you can work for 25$ a hour on a task and there if you have someone working for less than 25 $ a hour then delegate, outsource work to them. Do tasks that are more expensive per hour. Let the laundry, and other works be done by people who are ready to do it for less than your 25$ an hour rate. If you cannot delegate, you cannot grow, you cannot develop. Delegation is clarity. Think through what you want to be done, write it down. Pick the right person to do it. Make it crystal clear what you want done and when you want it done. Check and follow up on your delegate to be updated on tasks running on schedule or not. Never assume it will be done. Delegate everything you can. Never assume things will be done on time unless you check on it.

    “Assumptions lie at the root of all follow ups.”

    Resources. Being resourceful is as effective and a derivative path to success. Realise all the possibilities and methods in general to get a work done. There is always a way out even with closed doors or walls. There is always a world of possibilities beyond the obstacle and there is always a hack around the wall. Think on a miniature level about all the available options and discover the best fit method to tackle the issue. It is also important to make the best use of your resources. Find every alternative possibility to make the most productive potential out of your inventory and there is always a million possibilities and room for improvisations.

    “Nothing is Impossible”

    Organise. Every single initiative introduced in life follows a learning curve where the first experience is always the longest and hardest to cap within a timeframe but also an experience which teaches every aspect of the situation. The skills are attained with further experience on the task and prolonged periods of actions developing the agility and proportionate quality with time on that task. Hence to improve efficiency the best method is to batch the tasks separately and assemble it on a general scale. This helps in improving the process of skill while working on each aspect of the work individually rather than repeatedly following the same process over and over again.

    “It takes a lifetime to organise your life”

    Knowledge. Every person earns on the basis of the knowledge he has in store and earns the right potential success with a proper application of his ideas. So take in more information and knowledge to succeed in your profession and keep the learning edge to be updated in your field. Spend every day one hour investing in your own mind. Read every day an hour and learn. Less than that schedule would mean you are falling behind while about 2 hours daily could make an awesome change. Utilise time of travelling for this purpose. Listening to radio helps you stay informed on current affairs. Take some particular tasks to read or write in your coffee breaks. Every break is 20 minutes long which gives you hours in a year and if you stick to reading on a subject on a daily basis you will be a perfect in that particular task. Read at lunch time. You will grow more with knowledge. Keep stuffs on read later. And read them in your spare time. Use the gifts of time.

    “Knowledge is having the right answer and intelligence is asking the right question”

    Punctuality. A Reputation of being punctual is hard to create and easy to lose. There is only a minute in time where you can be punctual. Either you are early or you are late. Being late is negative time loss and being early is positively time loss. Being punctual develops a reputation for personality. They are competent, valuable, intelligent, reliable and efficient or responsible with discipline.

    “Better late than never but never late is better”

    Simplicity. Systemise the process. Mechanise, systemise and simplify the system by doing things work faster and streamline the processes. Do things you are better at, it is the quality of leaders. Make fewer mistakes. Do things together with a Team with effective team working skills.

    “Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication”

    Decline. Learn to say no to tasks activities and work that doesn’t contribute to your important most work. Don’t do work for the sense of obligation. Let me think about it. And after thinking if you don’t want to do. Say no and thank for considering with the opportunity and give reason straight and honestly. Just Say NO – it’s a very powerful word.

    “Sometimes we need to say No, So that we have more time to say Yes”

    Balance. Maintain a character. Trust your instincts. Be brave and smart. Stay firm with your integrity and personality. Don’t fall prey to the emotions of life or live to impress others. Never listen to the naysayers and stay away from negative reflections. Avoid bad companies or influences. Stay composed with your levels of comfort and maintain the freedom of expressions and be true to yourself and others. Have a sense of humour and judgement all at a time to analyse the world around and keep an open eye for opportunities and stay positive over the time. Get extra hours a day for fun to improve the quality of your life. One of the most important thing is to spend time with your loved ones and that is the purpose of your living and commitment to success. For success comes from priorities and the people that you love are your one high priority after all you are doing things for them. They must be your life. They must be your help. They must be your peace of mind. They must be the reason for your spiritual development. They complete you as a human being. Maintain your health and enjoy every moment in life keep smiling and live to the full 100%. Just know that you are breathing and understand how important it is. Have energy, enthusiasm and self-esteem. 

    "Be yourself."
  • Purpose of Life

    Welcome to this world, which indefinitely is a wonderful space wherein you have been sent to contribute healthily in its prosperity and growth. But
    Who sent you here ?
    Nobody knows that yet and probably its not even important, hence its wise not to waste your time on such questions. We all have a very limited amount of time and the time we have is always less since there is so much to see, so much to know and to experience, by the end of which you are left with no time to be wasted.  The possibilities are endless. You can become anything, You can do anything, You can even change this world. 

    Learn to try something new in this world everyday, try to learn and understand something new and act upon it, if in doubt.. remember that its always better to regret something after doing it rather than regretting without doing it on the first place because by doing something, even if you don't gain anything you will gain experience, which is very valuable. 

    Experience everything but don't get addicted to it. Experiences will help you differentiate between right and wrong. It will prevent you from repeating your mistakes but don't be afraid of committing to mistakes because only those who do something, makes mistakes in that process. 

    Always take responsibility of your own mistakes, try to rectify them and learn to forgive other people's mistake with a smile. Give them a chance to rectify their mistakes. No one commits mistakes on purpose neither does he misbehaves on purpose. You never know whats going on in anyone's life, so treat everyone the way as lenient you are about yourself. Respect everyone and trust people and most important of it all, love everyone.

    Love is very sparse in this world and everyone needs it you will need it too, hence not to hesitate to ask for it and also never hesitate to show it. life is too short to be shy or doubt. Dance like there is no tomorrow, sing at the top of your voice and eat as much as you can, laugh loudly and always cry like a baby. Just like the way you cried on the very first day you were born. Let your body grow old with time but not by heart. The very day you loose your innocence you may loose your life. Think about the future but don't worry about it. Think about the past but don't get lost in it, there will be always good and bad days. Don't boast too much when the days are good and never loose hope when the days are bad. Don't give yourself all the credits about your success and never blame others for your failures. 

    Just keep moving forward. and always remember you have been sent here for just one reason i.e. 
    to make this world a better place to live
  • Distinct Minds

    Deep inside when you are tensed, worried or when you are feeling lonesome and hurt, you go through a phase when a flashback of events just run in your minds. Your mind processes through all the memories and create a clear picture of the present situation before you or else you feel completely lost. Take a moment and close your eyes, you will be able to channel through your thoughts and memories in a fraction of a second. The might of our mind is indescribable, untameable and natural. In our Lives we go through a series of incidents and consequences. This chain of events are constantly developed and redeveloped in our lives to create a database of feelings which in fact builds our character.

    People react to situations differently. These are a result of the various distinct experiences a person goes through. You are thought as a child that a black cat crossing your path is a bad omen and you start believing it as a truth for your whole life. A Fundamental explanation to this can be given that every person is nurtured in a different way by its surroundings and this creates a complete set of a unique individuality, who in this world eats, bonds, thinks and survive similarly yet in a contrasting way. The whole universe evolves constantly and with that even our thoughts, culture and manners do. This change is brought about by the same principle of distinctive characteristics synchronizing together which helps the universe think and evolve simultaneously. A mind is a constant in every thinking living being. Only that the human mind is more evolved than our fellow earthlings. Our survival instincts are developed and we scrutinize every situation and find a solution for the same. Every aspect of the world thus witnesses a total change in the core level.
    Change is everything. These processes and events thus produce the world we live in.
    Each and everything around us are therefore a result of our own karmas and that is the very reason why it is said that we create our own world. There happens to be a symbiotic relation between the living and nonliving part of the world. We are the two sides of the same coin saying that we all are composed of the same matter but in a different constituents and it includes even the mind and life in us. Every small change collectively result a characteristic change to the ecosystem we survive in.

    Therefore every thought that occurs in your mind becomes a thought in the core of the universe where some ideas develop for ourselves a better future and some destroy the very existence of life.

    The Universe thinks with your mind in it
    Our Mind is very complex compared to other organisms and therefore our life is rapidly changing and evolving compared to other races and breeds of living things. Under the roof of Earth everyone of us breathe the same air and share our space. But not every mind thinks same and we can never read a persons mind for instance.
    All our Knowledge has its origin in our perception
    Our Success in the universal level has been due to the might of our minds thinking distinctively yet simultaneously. MIND IT !
  • Sophrosyne Effect

    A gentle wind was blowing filled with the fragrance of fresh fruits and blossoming flowers. A tune was playing in my head and my walk was in sync with it. I could feel the peace in my soul. My body was relaxing and I was slipping into the tender care of our nature with time. Nothing else matters. The tranquility that surrounded me was astounding. I moved forward with the wind as I had given up myself completely into it. Just like a leaf coming down of its parent tree, I was swinging here and there pointless. Everything around me looked perfect. The sky was hiding the sun with a blanket of thick cloud like a mother who covers her son before a storm. Only a ray of light passed through the cloud and I could see the child staring at me brightly. I was standing alone on the mountain top like a unicorn with its wings stretched far wide. The tender grass below my feet tickled me with my each step. I had a bird’s eye view of the beautiful earth below. Spread across filling every inch of my vision. I just stood staring at that amazing view. I had the time of my life and wished that I could spend each second of my life and keep breathing like this.

    The temperature started falling. I could feel the chill in my spines. The clear atmosphere grew dull and a shower of blessings from the holy heaven came in the form of rain. All the worries in my mind were getting washed away and my heart was healing slowly. I was drenched in the rain and was struggling inside with a battle of past events in my life. I was realizing the real motive of life.

    Hours later, everything was calm again. I was experiencing a healthy state of mind along with a self control over my emotions and feelings. The tug of war between my heart and mind was over. The results were in the favour of the inner soul. I learned the power of forgetting my worries and the might of the truth inside me. Raised above the odds and felt like a complete human being.

    Till date I remember this part of my life when I felt Sophrosyne.
  • Cosmic Concept

    My Imagination has always been stirred by a mysterious sense of the vastness of our Universe. Spending time looking up at the pitch black night sky and its glitter, with the myriads of stars and the way I felt that awesome glamour of outer space, makes me speechless. Don't tell me that never in your life have you been moved by the majestic splendor of the nocturnal heaven.

    The whole mystery can be indulged by trying to understand the concepts of space and time within our confines of science. Space is that realm of the Universe where everything exists and events occur with respect to their own relative position and direction. In physics, space is conceived in three dimensions which are length, breadth and height - although time constitutes with space to form a boundless continuum called space-time, making it a four dimensional entity. Whereas time has only one entity: it travels from your past, through the present, and to the future.

    It is inevitable, unrepeatable and irreversible. We may feel how time, in its exorable passage, is carrying us away; we could neither halt nor prolong it. Not a single moment of existence could be recovered. You can imagine it as a feeling like you are falling off from a cliff without any aid, you can’t control the flow or accelerate or decelerate the rate at which you descent.
    Space and time are the universal forms of the existence of matter throughout the Universe.
    In the material world everything has its own extensions and durations, not only the events of the external world, but also all the feelings and thoughts take place in space and time. The Universe is continuously expanding. We can put the finite and infinite character of the Universe in this way: the summation of all the things and objects that exist in the Universe is finite, but the totality of finite things and processes occurring every moment is infinite.

    We can find ourselves standing somewhere between the infinite expansion of universe taking place in every direction around us. You could possibly be a tiny speck in comparison to the huge celestial bodies in the cosmos, but at the same time also a giant, considering the microorganisms that coexist with us. It completely depends upon the spatial reference form of the observer and the human perception or measurement standards.

    It is widely noticed that when you are blissful, the time around you feels to be quite fast, whereas when you are experiencing sorrow or grief, every moment of the time is acknowledged to be slow. If you can possibly travel in the speed of time, you will find everything stationery, since time will slow down at the same rate at which you travel.
    Change is everything.
    Both space and time are absolute and are forms of matter in motion which are not indifferent to their content. They are conditioned by matter; as a form is conditioned by its content and every level of the motion of matter possess its own space-time structure. An object doesn't leave an empty form behind with its moment in time. There is a continuous event of processes that occurs, which makes it more complex and its rhythm with time acquires special space-time properties.

    Once a particular event occurs, it is followed by consecutive events and processes that follow or generate with the time spent. There never happens to be a moment in the future of time when nothing would exist further. The chain of events would evolve over time and everything in the cosmos interacts with each other despite their distance or diversity. It would be a folly to consider a beginning or end of times.
    The Universe in itself is infinitely old and eternally young!
  • Proxemic Paradigms

    How did you feel the last time you hugged someone special?

    One of the best experiences in the world is when you hug someone. The proximity you share with that person is shared through that intimate posture. A handshake used as a sign of gratitude. A smile used as an act of kindness. All comprise to form a set of gestures of non verbal communication. The amount of space that people feels it necessary to set between them and others differ with emotions, relations or even cultures and dialects. 

    The study of man's transactions as he perceives and uses intimate, personal, social and public space in various settings while following out of awareness, dictates of cultural paradigms also known as Proxemics.

    We subconsciously space ourselves apart or close to people we interact with. The study on these Social interactions and their cultural fluctuations helps to explain the idea of distance. We always trust the people who are close to us and are familiar with the emotions we share. The comfort level changes with an entry of a stranger into that living space. Humans tend to start a conversation with the most common pitch questions asked, relating to one another and in this process he analyses the possible character or tend to rate the person on his personality portrayed and his style of presentation. Appearance also plays a role in judging a person. These factors help us to decide on the levels of proximity.

    On a Global basis, we acquire skills to understand the stories beyond our scope, Like feeling the pain of a war fought between nations far than your home territory, the existence of the world we have never seen before but still strongly believe on its existence. I have never been to the Pyramids of Giza, but I still believe and wonder its marvel in every way I know, it is there for real. This is the same reason why we feel to cry when we see an emotional scene in a movie and laugh your guts out on comedian’s gimmicks and even go crazy over the dance moves of Michael Jackson. It all happens for the reason that we have already known the causes or have experienced the thrills of life similar to the world out there.

    There are anyway limitations to this model, when it comes to an overall perception. We are trained from our birth to ape and adapt to the ambience which surrounds our living enclosure. Not everyone has the mindset to absorb everything in the right context of its appearance or the way it is delivered. We tend to make our silly mistakes and misunderstandings on others and hence differ on their opinions. This results in gap between relations, and could build up extensively over time. The space increases the social differences in communities and relations. The holy books of all religions in the world ask its disciples to follow the peace that promises to unify the world beyond the cultures and make it a wonderful world to live. The practice of love and care for the needy, the act of Kindness or even as a guide to others on the pathway to truth.

    May Tomorrow be a day you shall fill the space between your fingers with a tender touch
  • Divine Bliss

    One pleasant night, I was contemplating the true meaning of happiness. This simple question arose from my mind and filled me with ecstasy. Actually do you remember the last moments in your life when you were totally blissful? An iota of true happiness that surrounded your soul in satisfaction and your heart sang in the rhythm unconsciously. This are the moments when you just let your soul flow in its rhymes. Bliss is truly an elusive state of mind, a volatile, positive element in our life

    According to Upanishads, the true nature of life is

                  Sathyam (reality)                 Chith (consciousness)                    Anandam (bliss)

    The whole mankind is united in conviction that a complete blissful state itself is a deception point.Whereas the point actually is revealed by Buddha’s teachings as

    “If with a pure mind you speak or act, than happiness follows you as a shadow that never departs”
    However, this bliss proves to be unsatisfactory for those who are in the quest for an insatiable happiness, which should be permanent to stay lifelong and this very quest takes humanity to divinity. After all he is in attempt to transcend his own ambience to attain the “divine bliss”

    In his quest he practices and follows a disciplined path, His integrity is enhanced, thus his behavior is congruent to his ideologies.

    His mind becomes his guide which focuses on happiness that is earned with the passage of time rather than the pleasant or momentary happiness which is easily attained but last for some moments only. He Recognizes the immortal self in him, it’s a folly to consider yourself as the body or mind you wear. He starts Understanding himself, his dreams, and his wishes. Write his own fate and follow the things in which he keeps desire. Once he is prepared he follows the noble path to attain the highest degree of happiness. He gets to Know the antonyms of happiness as there is always elements that are eager to push him down in his journey.Remember that the path that gives you the hardships is always the correct path. Finally, when he attains the divine bliss he gets himself into these moments and enjoy it. Every person in their life will once experience the complete satisfaction in their journey so make a point that you realize it and cherish this moments 

    Conclusively, the true meaning of happiness is hidden within you and it is to- 
    Stop seeking happiness and spread happiness, it is the true pursuit of happiness!
