Let your eyes talk,mouth listen and ears slee

If this is so ,Will there be peace in every sphere ?

Any idea what exactly the Author of the quote suggesting ?

Please enlighten me further.

Are you a ‘wanting’ or a ‘giving’ personality?

Not enough,greedy

“Enough of any thing is plenty.but plenty to some people is not enough”Sophie Irene Loeb

First let us talk about ‘Wanting’ personalities-

More money ,more popularity,more pleasure,more likes in social media,more than 1000 friends/follows in social media,more achievements ( though positive ),more power one can go on… and remember, we are never tired of ‘wanting’ more.This has become a human trait.

Why you want more and more …..and even more ?

Probably you fear the ‘uncertain’ future, probably you are ‘greedy’.

These things make you develop desire, lust and finally,frustration if not successful and you may go into a dejection/depression/revengeful mode.

As the ‘ wanting’ personality,you are always obsessed with more and more demands and quick & positive outcome.

You are restless.

Can you survive a good relationship?( Wife,relatives and friends ).

The relationship can go sour since you are not getting what you wanted and when you get,it becomes incomplete since you have newer demands cropping up.

You are unhappy all the time.Neither you make people around you happy.

So you make yours and other’s lives miserable.

The point I am stressing is that you lost your commonsense and fail to know the difference between ‘love’ and ‘desire

“Love lasts a longtime but burning desire lasts two to three weeks” Carla Bruni

At the end who is happy?


Now let us talk of ‘Giving’ personalities…

Let us say, now that you, the ‘giving’ type,and we all know naturally,you are the happiest person on the earth.

But note down.’Giving’ personalities are of different types because their ‘giving’ pattern depends on factors like faith,Fear,self serving and spontaneous

  1. Faith- These people have faith in God, and depending upon their religion philosophy,they donate some percentage of their earnings.and become the givers.
  2. Fear- comes to some,since many bad things happening in their lives,they make commitments to do some charity,hoping to get compensated by the Almighty and may derive some satisfaction.
  3. Self serving- these are greedy people in real sense and they indulge in ‘giving’, since they expect returns.Some say one can continue  one’s sins by religiously donating some percentage of one’s illegal earnings to temples,churches etc.
  4. Spontaneous-These ‘givers’ are emotional type and they don’t hesitate to donate (even if they are poor),whenever they come across emotional incidences,which require monetary help.

If you are a ‘giving’ person,you are said to be guy with a kind heart,you enjoy the ‘feel good’ factor,you have a fulfillment and finally total satisfaction .Wait…….

Are you sure whom to give,when to give and how much to give ?

My feeling is…. the ‘giver’ must be judicious.

1.If you belong to too much ‘giving’ type-people may take advantage and even misuse your kindness.

2. Your continuous ‘giving’ habit can bring down motivation among the ‘takers’ and they may become lazy.

3.If you happen to be ‘giving’ to the ‘wanting’ personalities,then you are doing a great harm to your philosophy.

So there is some ‘ART’ which you have to follow if you belong to ‘giving’ trait.

Thank you so much for taking your time to reach this point.

Do you agree that  most of us belong  to both categories with variation in intensity?

Monkey Lessons

Taming my Monkey mind is a full-time job

Don’t think of yourself as an ugly person,

Think of yourself as a Beautiful Monkey -Soojie

Always I wonder How we are different from Animals.

As you can see in the above photo ,the big monkey( I presume ,the teacher ) with its back facing us, seems to be busy teaching its first morning lesson to the students.

You can also notice that three student monkeys are very attentive & disciplined and one monkey is a bit unhappy & restless .The baby monkey of course has a long time to go to learn the ropes.

This one reminded me of my school days ,where some students gel well with some teachers and not too happy with some other teachers even name calling etc.

I feel the whole thing depends on to what extent the teacher can ‘inspire’ his/her students.

CASTLE IN THE ‘SAND’

Castle the sand

“We are like children building a sand castle.

We embellish it with beautiful shells, bits of driftwood, and pieces of coloured glass.

The castle is ours, off limits to others. We’re willing to attack if others threaten to hurt it.

Yet despite all our attachment, we know that the tide will inevitably come in and sweep the sand castle away.

The trick is to enjoy it fully but without clinging, and when the time comes, let it dissolve back into the sea.”
Pema Chodron

Castles in the sand reminds me of the popular number in 2005 by the band ‘Philosopher Kings’ If you find time ,listen the song in the the you tube 

Philosopher kings-Castles in the sand

Philosopher kings -Lyrics to ‘Castles In The Sand’

Built a perfect house in a perfect town
Dreamt a perfect dream and it all fell down
We held on tight like hungry lovers
Watched the day break from beneath the covers
Had to know for sure what it’s all about

Oh, this should be easy
Oh, just tell me we’re happy
Just building castles in the sand

I saw the naked light and it burned my eyes
Couldn’t look away no matter how I tried
I watched you explode when you think it’s over
And I burst in comin’ like a supernova
Had to track you down, had to find you out

Oh, this should be easy
Oh, just tell me we’re happy
Just building castles in the sand

And tides roll in, and waves get closer
The night was over
But we get stronger every time
We build our castles in the sand

Built a perfect house in perfect town
Dreamt a perfect dream and it all fell down

Oh, just tell me we’re happy,
Just building castles in the sand
Just building castles in the sand

Oh, just building castles in the sand
Just building castles in the sand

My challenge…..Can you vouch that you have ‘Peace Of Mind’ ?

Peace of Mind,Happiness,happy

Searching for Peace of mind at Lord’s abode.

Present day life style makes us think that leading a ‘peaceful life’ is a distant dream…and I am glad you realised the truth.

The day you are born,you know that life brings lot of stress.At the end, you realise that it is impossible to be At peace with your mind,since you are aware that your mind is like a monkey….restless all the time resulting in piece of mind

” If you are depressed,you live in the past..
if you are anxious, you live in the future..
but if you are at PEACE…you live in the present “
Lao Tzu

What is ‘ Peace Of Mind ?’ Aka ‘peace’ ?

Thesaurus Dictionary says- it is the absence of mental stress or anxiety.

Wikipedia talks of Inner Peace,referring to a state of being Mentally & Spiritually at peace with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress

Being at peace is considered by many to be healthy. Peace of mind is generally associated with bliss,happiness,and contentment.

But the question is how do you get the Peace Of Mind ?

Take my challenge and Try these 10 secrets, I am sharing and I am so sure it will be a disaster!
1.Keep calm and don’t be jealous.”Jeaulosy comes from,counting others blessings,instead of our own”Unknown
2.Don’t bite more than you can chew,because nobody looks attractive,spitting it back. ‘Carrol Bryant’
3.Don’t work for recognition,but do work,worthy of recognition ‘H.Jackson Brown Jr.’
4.Never tell your problem to anyone. 20% don’t care & 80% glad that you have them ‘Quora’
5.If you live for having it all,what you have is never enough. ‘Vicki Robin’
6.“Less is not necessarily more. Just enough is more.”
Milton Glaser”
7.There is a story behing every person.There is a reason why they are the way they are.Think about that before you judge someone. ‘pinerest’.
8.Forgive & Forget,but never forget to forgive,you may find a happier heart is the key to a happier life ‘Mahatma Gandhi’
9.Never put off tomorrow,what you can do today. ‘Thomas Jefferson’
10.To keep the body in good health is a duty..otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear ‘ Buddha’

Wise men have given plenty of such advices,my guess is being,a human being it is impossible to get peace of mind,even if you follow the wise sayings 100% and unfortunately for a change,I won the challenge !

Thank you so much for taking your time to go through and let me know if there is some more secrets to add.
