Gobble up

“Gobble ’til you wobble”  Unknown

It’s human nature that we gobble up things when we are greedy and in a hurry.

Whether it’s sweets, birthday cakes, or breakfast even alcohol and there are too many examples.

I have noticed this especially in organised events where food and alcohol are served unlimited.

It’s a common observation in many of the conferences I attend.

I really can’t understand, why one should gobble up as if one is not going to see another day?

What is the psychology or philosophy behind this?

I don’t know.

How much stomach can hold?

You can’t be filling stuff up to your mouth level too fast!.

And many people have had repulsive regurgitation.

People know the bad effects still love to gobble up.

On Festival occasions, this habit reaches its peak.

Have you noticed anybody gobbling up food & Beverages?

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Lockup mentalities

It is such a waste, when people are alienated (friends, relatives, wife & husband, Couples,parents-children or business partners etc.) from each other for days, months or even years,….all over some misunderstanding…that could have been sorted out sooner or even one of the parties had shown more Humility or Understanding.

What do you think my friend?

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Drink moderately they say

Who decides, what the moderation is?

Alcohol is dangerous they say.

But why is it, still popular?

I’ll clean up

Cleaning up

Being clean or cleaning up a thing is said to be important in our day to day practice, and keeping the environment clean prevents many of the diseases related to unhygienic practices of humans.

But somebody said “Cleanliness is next to impossible’  unknown

Is it so?

If you think deeply, it’s not possible to clean up the mess we create every day?

What about the things in real life?

Is cleaning up limited to external appearances?

What about our mind, which none can read!

And our minds are polluted right from adolescence.

Is it possible to clean up our polluted minds?

Can a clean up mind be equal to a clean earth?

Or do you think environmental pollution is polluting our minds?

Why our minds are polluted?

I feel our minds are polluted because of greed, lust, jealousy, negative thoughts, hatred, criticism, judgment, anxiety, resentment….the list is too long. And ‘Ego’ adds to the filth.

As humans, we are not able to satisfy ourselves because of our polluted minds.

Is it possible to clean up our polluted mind just like we clean up our body of dirt? 

I don’t know.

“Everything is based on mind, is led by mind, is fashioned by mind.

If you speak and act with a polluted mind, suffering will follow you, as the wheels of the oxcart follow the footsteps of the ox.

Everything is based on the mind, is led by the mind, is fashioned by the mind.

If you speak and act with a pure mind, happiness will follow you, as shadow clings to a form”

Buddha

I remember John Milton’s quote about the power of the mind.

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven”

Please realise, you can’t challenge your mind and if you make a sincere efforts, remember not to whine!

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Let us open it up

“Who will not be happy, when receiving an unexpected gift from the loved ones”   Sonika Suresh

Gifts

We all love gifts.

Luckily we have plenty of Gifting seasons.

And this emotion of ours becomes uncontrollable if we get surprise gifts.

Right from childhood, the first reaction is, great excitement and you don’t feel like wasting your time, just love to open up the gift at the earliest.

Your curiosity reaches its peak if you don’t open it up immediately!

Why gift makes us happy or unhappy?

If you receive a gift, you feel you are special and you are loved. Joy fills your heart.

I feel giving gifts makes one happy if given unconditionally.

While the person at the receiving end is happy, most of the time holiday season gift-giving makes us stressed out.

It all depends on the situation and the relationships.

It’s better to be both giver and receiver.

But present-day gifts are chosen and given with some motive behind them.

It’ easy to open up the the gifts.But in real life…opening up to someone?

In real life, how easy for you to open up to somebody?

“Sometimes you just can’t open up to someone… Not because you don’t trust them, but because once you tell someone how you feel inside, you give them permission to hurt you”  Unknown

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Love- Up

“The things I do for love.” George R.R. Martin, Game of Throne

Wow! What a great philosophy!

Love up means to treat lovingly or to love wholeheartedly. An act of caressing or hugging and display of affection.

Hugging I understand. It’s the most comforting gesture from anybody.

My discussion is limited to couples doing those things for ‘love’.

Other than hugging, what do you have to do things to show up your love?

I am not sure, some say a kiss. Some said listening or forgiveness and some said to repeat the sentence ‘I love you’ at least 100 times a day. etc.

We hear stories of a couple committing suicide together in extreme cases, when the family members on either side objected.

The Internet gives you too many ideas as to how to express love.

My question is – how long ‘the things we do for love’ survives?

OK, what is that we do for that love?

My guess is it depends on the degree of maturity of the couple.

The younger you are, the more immature ways of doing things to prove one’s love!

This is obvious when Valentine’s day comes closer!

Instead of showing love….people are busy showing off love!

The costlier the gift, the greater the intensity of love!

Do we understand the real meaning of love?

Sadly the answer is a big ‘NO’ my friend.

“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get – only with what you are expecting to give – which is everything.”

Katharine Hepburn

What happens in real life?

In real life, unreal things happen!

Surprised?

“The problem is everyone is looking for unconditional love, carrying a bag full of conditions” unknown

What does it mean to be a true couple?

“The couples that are “meant to be” are the ones who go through everything that is meant to tear them apart and come out even stronger than they were before” unknown

Yes, my friend.

We got plenty of examples of couples who have completed 25 yrs or 50 yrs, even 75 yrs of married life, and still going strong despite the hurdles they faced together.

God bless these wonderful couples.

My thoughts

To love is to feel and care lovingly

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Backside Up

“When Warren Buffett says the sun shines out of somebody’s backside, it’s worth paying attention” Guy Spier

Have you ever given importance to the backside?

Don’t you find beauty in the backside view?

The flower is beautiful from all sides, be it the front view, backside view, upside-down view….whichever angle you look at it.

Again I am not sure about the English usage of Backside-up.Forgive me if I am wrong and simply enjoy the Back Beauty of the Square!

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
