Discover Prompts, Day 13: Teach

Chanakya's teachings

The teacher could never be ordinary. Both, construction and destruction, belongs to him. Chanakya   wishquotemessages.in

This post is in response to

WP-Discover-prompts

Chanakya was an ancient Indian teacher, philosopher, economist, jurist and royal adviser. He is traditionally identified as Kauṭilya or Vishnugupta, who authored the ancient Indian political treatise, the Arthashastra, a text dated to roughly between the 2nd century BCE and the 3rd century CE Wikipedia-Chanakya

Some of Chanakya’s teachings

A man is great by deeds.Not by birth.

A person should not be too honest.Straight trees are cut first and honest people are screwed first.Education is the best friend.

educated person is respected everywhere.Education beats the beauty and the youth.As soon as fear approaches near,attack and destroy it.

There is some self-interest in every friendship.There is no friendship without self-interest.This is a bitter truth.

The world’s biggest power is youth & the beauty of a woman.

Never make friends with people who are above or below you in status.Such friendship will never give you any happiness.

God is not present in idols.Your feelings are your God.The soul is your temple.

Once you start working on something,don’t be afraid of failure,and don’t abandon it.People who work sincerely are the happiest.

Don’t reveal what you have thought upon doing,but by wise council keep it secret being determined to carry into its execution.

Celibacy

Celibacy

Marriage has many pains,but celibacy has no pleasures     Samuel Johnson

Disclaimer– For mature adults only

Celibacy is voluntary vow of sexual abstinence.

Some have claimed that life without sex is better and one automatically starts respecting the other gender.

But of late many sex scandals are coming out in the open.

If you can answer any or all of the following 7 questions

I am enriched.

A. Are the following allowed in Celibacy ?

  • Masturbation.
  • Non penetrative sexual act.
  • Kissing,hugging,spa activities.

B. Any bodily benefits of  being a celibacy ?

C. Does celibacy assure you , peace,serenity & tranquility or control of temptations ?

D. Is it a worst form of self abuse ?

E. Is this an act against Creator’s wish or one is blessed by the Creator ?

F. Will there be any regrets at a later date ?

G. When & who invented Celibacy under what circumstances ?

F. Does celibacy assure one of spiritual or physical advantage ?

Some wise people’s observations

1.Celibacy is not natural to men or women; all bodily needs require their legitimate satisfaction.and celibacy is disregard of natural law.   Annie Besant

2.Celibacy is one of the most unnatural things. It has destroyed so many human beings – millions – Catholic monks, Hindu monks, Buddhist monks, Jain monks, nuns. For centuries they have been teaching celibacy; and the most amazing thing is, even in the twentieth century, not a single medical expert, physiologist, has stood up and said that celibacy is impossible, that in the very nature of things, it cannot happen. Rajneesh

3. Your body is a temple.Not a visitors place   unknown

4.Celibacy-frees you from the traps of desires and emotions !!    Divya Sri Karri

5.The advantage of being celibate is that when one sees a pretty girl one does not need to grieve over having an ugly one back home.  Paul Leautad

6.Self control is better than being controlled  Unknown

7.An empty spot in your bed is better than having a wrong spirit laying in it.

Please enlighten me.I am grateful.

Thank you. Namaste🙏🏻

Blog this way…..not that way !!

Blog this way....not that way

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspirations,the rest of us just get up and go to work Stephen King

What is the philosophy behind blogging ?

To blog is to create,to connect,to share,to learn,to inspire and get inspired.
Blogging is a more flexible medium.

Here the you can express your emotions,share your life’s experience with blogging community,get clarifications for your doubts,enrich your knowledge,meet more friends of similar wave length,exchange ideas etc.etc.

The greatest advantage is…

  • Time is all yours
  • You can prepare the article leisurely
  • Develop common interest with other bloggers
  • Be more inspirational and encouraging
  • Bringing happiness and smile to everyone involved
  • You learn a lot and spread your knowledge too, a kind of win-win situation
  • You also get relaxed and satisfied

Any disadvantages ?

  • You may get irritated for the lack of ideas
  • Unhappy when you come across articles opposite of your ideology and principles
  • Disturbed (trolls)
  • You put unreasonable demands on yourself thus subjected to stress.
  • You may not sleep peacefully since you keep up a tight schedule to post articles.
  • And your mind is agitated constantly because you have to post more articles.
  • May have marital disputes,since you spend all time in thinking about blog topics.
  • At one stage you may go in for ‘writers block’

Finally you decide…..

“O.K let me take a chance and plunge into the ‘blogging ocean‘. After all it’s not do or die situation and I am a good swimmer ”

Now the question arises…..

How to blog ?

This is million dollar question.

You are enthusiastic.You wish to be heard.
You realized that blogging is the easiest way to reach millions.

Then you are stuck.
you are not sure of the topic,and most of the topics are already discussed, dissected,questioned and deciphered.

Even if you decide to write a post you are not sure how much inspirational,it is going to be.

You can not afford to be amateurish.
People may laugh at you and even ignore you.
You may get depressed.

Some times you may be encouraged by the fellow bloggers to perform better.
You become energized.
Now you became bold.

you want more likes,more comments and unlimited number of follows and you are exited to achieve these goals.Now you are in a dream world !

You wish is to achieve these impossible tasks in the shortest time possible.You struggle for ideas.How to proceed ? ?

That is where you can utilize the principle of Beg,Barrow & Steal

Go through as many blog articles as possible,find out the various material available in tune with your interests,amalgamate the thought processes. Finally Come out successfully with your own ideas.

OMG! Is that the way you advice budding bloggers?

Come on my friend,don’t be mean.

I never recommended plagiarism.

Have patience and go through the Wise men’s quotes at the end.

3 Benefits of Beg-Barrow-Steal

1. It can be innovative ,by mixing ideas.

2. Recycling the available knowledge pool can give you more creativity.

3. Creative Commons license allows you to use its contents and you can come out with best articles.

Remember Never,never indulge in Plagiarism

Don’t forget to give credit to the authors,from whom you gained confidence and the required knowledge.

Now coming to the Wise Men’s wise counsel

If you steal from one author it’s plagiarism.If you steal from many it is research. ‘Wilson Mizner

Good writers borrow from other writers.Great writers steal from them outright. ‘Aaron Sorkin’

Good artists copy,great artists steal.Plano Picasso’

If you have reached this point, I am thankful and appreciative of your patience.

Monkey Lessons

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.
