How do you respond?

The art and science of asking questions is the source of all knowledge” Thomas Berger

We all get excited and happy whenever we get a new ‘follower’ in WP and also when the total count jumps.

It’s natural and part of the human mindset.

These followers ‘follow’ you for different reasons

✔Some are genuinely interested in the topic or niche you have chosen

✔Some follow you because of the same wavelength between you both in the communication matters

✔Some follow you because they expect you to return favors

✔Some follow you to get your attention regarding donation

✔Some follow you to sell their products

You can enlighten me further, if you find more reasons.

And I have 15 questions for you and I want you to be frank because this can clear doubts of many and can be helpful to all, as everyone continues their saga in the blogosphere

I know that every blogger is a King or Queen in their own way and need no explanation to give and are the deciding persons but still, I just wished to know the correct answers from people like you who are good in your observations.

#1. Do you ‘follow’ every blog that follows you?

#2. Do you ‘like’ the blog posts, though the subject is of not your interest, but still click the ‘like’ button for some of their posts because they regularly ‘like’ your posts and you don’t wish to displease them? Are you justified by your act?

#3. Do you ‘unfollow’ a blog, though they are following you? Any specific reasons? Too many posts or deviations from the original concept of the blogger?

#4. How do you respond to the bloggers, who ‘follow’ you and you in turn ‘follow’ them, but when you check their blog, you are surprised to note that it’s in a foreign language?

#5. If the blog is in a foreign language do you still attempt to check the post via Google Translate?

#6. Do you regularly check who all ‘unfollowed’ you, after ‘following’ you in the beginning? who is at fault?

#7. Are you the type, who is least bothered about who is ‘following’ or who has ‘unfollowed’ you?

#8. Did you any time get angry/helpless because nobody is following and you even decided to quit once for all? 

#9. Are you able to join the discussion in every blog that you ‘follow’?

#10. What is the ‘ideal number of blogs humanly possible to ‘follow’ and join the discussion regularly?

#11. Do you check your WP statistics regularly and either get excited or depressed?

#12. What you have decided when you have exhausted the free quota? Do you go for a paid account or start another blog in a different name and transfer your hard earned ‘follows’ to your new blog?

#13. How frequently you donate or buy  in the blogosphere?

#14. Are you not surprised that everybody is advising everybody in the blogosphere and how much these pieces of the advice having an impact on you and your life?

#15. At any time, somewhere in your mind, did you feel jealous, because you noticed that a blogger having 100 ‘follows’ getting 300 comments and you having 3000 ‘follows’ getting less than 50 comments? 

I know my friend, too many questions and difficult to answer one by one.

It’s OK.

Take it easy.

Inhale and exhale.

The human mind is too complex!.

Two quotes come to my mind about the human mind

“Our mental limitations prevent us from recognizing our mental limitation.”  Dr Robert Burton

“The moment we think we know the answer, or even the question, we close down our options to explore & we can no longer find the things that we didn’t know to look for.”  Sonja Blignaut

Does free will exist ?

Free will

Free will carried many a soul to Hell,but never a soul to Heaven Charles Spurgeon

It’s a 3.5 minute read.

What is free will ?

According to Cambridge Dictionary, it’s ‘the ability to decide what to do independently of any outside influence’

Is your free will is a choice or is it predetermined ?

I am sure it is predetermined.

It’s a complicated and confusing subject for a short discussion but I make it simpler by some basic examples.

  • When you were born you couldn’t choose your parents.
  • Neither you gave your free will to your parents.
  • Neither you could choose your gender or even color.
  • Being born,physically challenging is not because you choose this.
  • Your parents decided your siblings
  • Your parents decided your schooling and not you.
  • Your joining a college,getting a degree,getting employment,your salary are all decided by somebody else.
  • You being a good or bad character is decided by your status of ‘Karma’.
  • You are governed by the laws of your country.
  • If you are a religious person,you can’t go against scriptures.
  • Diseases entertain you uninvited and overwhelms you with complications.
  • At any given part of your life, you are dependent on somebody for something.
  • Your very thoughts in your brain are because of some unknown factors influencing your intellect.
  • Even marriages are made in Heaven
  • You being fertile or barren is not in your hands.
  • Your choice of food is determined by un-explainable triggers from your brain.
  • You develop bad habits,because of somebody or some problem…not because of your free will.
  • Your habits are forced upon you by your thoughts from un-explainable chemical forces acting on your mind.
  • You don’t die out of free will.Suicides too happen because of some situations,not because of free will. If I go a step beyond humans…
  • Why Planets never deviate their path ?

The ‘free will’ which you think to possess is nothing but your ‘perception’.

Then why are you not in a mood to accept the fact that there is no such thing as ‘Free will’ ?

At least try to live happily….the life given to you by the Almighty, since by now I convinced you about your claim of ‘Free will’

“Free will is an illusion. People always choose the perceived path of greatest pleasure”. Scott Adams

What is that I am trying to impress ?

Whatever you do in your life time is ‘Predetermined’.This is law of universe.Every step you take is based on Action-Reaction principle depending on your Karma.

In other words when you feel that you are doing things at your free will,remember this thought of yours( free will ) is based on some unknown forces acting on your brain to think that way.Simply put ‘ Free will ‘ is a MAYA ( illusion).

You are only fooling yourself if you think that Free will is at your disposal.

“Nothing in the universe happens by chance or accident.The universe is a coherent concurrence and interaction of innumerable conditions attendant on the infinite number of energy patterns.

In the state of awareness,all this is obvious and can be clearly seen and known.

Outside that level of awareness,it could be likened to innumerable,invisible magnetic fields which automatically coalesce or repel one’s position and which interact according to the positions and relative strengths and polarities.Everything influences everything else and is in perfect balance. David R.Hawkins

Life is too short,Read quickly !

Can you answer ? ( Question series no-41 )

For Long reads usually I mention approximate time taken for reading the post.

It’s up to the readers to decide whether to read or not depending upon their available time.

I am also thankful for the appreciation and comments I get from the readers.

Majority of my readers are kind and encouraging and many help me get that extra knowledge through their discussions.

And I am proud to say that many solved my question series puzzle and gave clarity to my thoughts.

I am grateful.

But some times I get ‘likes’….next second of my publishing the post,though the post requires minimum 2 to 3 minutes to read.

This makes me confused.I start wondering.

1.What do you think the purpose of these kinds of ‘Likes’ ?

2.What is that one can achieve ?

3.Is this a clever strategy ?

4.Or it’s convenient ?

Thank you in advance.

Love is not complicated, people are

 

Love is not complicated ,people are

These days…relationship means… Any where without you is better than any where with you

How individual lives are changing ,relationships are thrown into the dust bin,people forgetting the meaning and value & sacredness of ‘LOVE’,

Thanks to addiction to social media & smart phones !

Relationships are harder now!

“Conversations became texting,

Arguments became phone calls,

Feelings became subliminal messages,

Sex became easy,

The word ‘love’ is used out of context.,

Insecurities became a way of thinking,

Getting jealous became a habit,

Trust is hard to come by,

Being hurt became natural.

Leaving became the only option,

Sad but true,

So if you have something…that is worth it,..don’t take it for granted,

Fight for it,don’t let it go”       pinterest

Summary

Be selfish,thanks to the inventions. indulge in your liking,Drink till you drop dead,fight without any reason,Ego is your life,jealousy is your partner, Greedy is your nature,Killing innocents is your taste,care not anybody,you owe the happiness you deserve,forget about dieting & exercises which are all money-making machines,,cheating is your mantra,money is everything and enjoy dying your own death,you owe nothing to anybody!

Is this the lesson modern-day life style teaching us ? Is this the meaning of advancement in human life ? Is this what all about relationships ?

And what about ethics,values,respect,responsibilities ,family relationship ?

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.
