You are a Master Piece.. ah Master's Piece!

"A plum once said, 'just because a banana lover came by, I converted myself into a banana. Unfortunately, his taste changed after a few months and so I became an orange. When he said I was bitter I became an apple, but he went in search of grapes. Yielding to the opinions of so many people, I have changed so many times that I no more know who I am. How I wish I had remained a plum and waited for a plum lover.'

Just because a group of people do not accept you as you are, there is no necessity for you to strip yourself of your originality. You need to think good of yourself, for the world takes you at your own estimate. Never stoop down in order to gain recognition. Never let go of your true self to win a relationship. In the long run, you will regret that you traded your greatest glory - your uniqueness, for momentary validation. Even Gandhi was not accepted by many people. The group that does not accept you as you is not your world.

There is a world for each one of you, where you shall reign as king /queen by just being yourself. Find that world... in fact, that world will find you.

What water can do, gasoline cannot and what copper can, gold cannot. The fragility of the ant enables it to move and the rigidity of the tree enables it to stay rooted. Everything and everybody has been designed with a proportion of uniqueness to serve a purpose that we can fulfill only by being our unique self. You as you alone can serve your purpose and I as I alone can serve my purpose. You are here to be you... just you.

There was a time in this world when a Krishna was required and he was sent; a time when a Christ was required and he was sent; a time when a Mahatma was required and he was sent; a time when a J.R.D.Tata was required and he was sent. There came a time when you were required on this planet and hence you were sent. Let us be the best we can be. Don't miss yourself and let the world not miss you.

In the history of the universe, there has been nobody like you and to the infinite of time to come, there will be no one like you. Existence should have loved you so much that it broke the mould after making you, so that another of your kind will never get repeated. You are original. You are rare. You are unique. You are a wonder. You are a masterpiece. .. your Master's piece. Celebrate your Uniqueness."

The King Maker!!

He was the most learned of his times, one with complete knowledge of political science, economics along with the art of war fighting supported by the most powerful knowledge of ancient spiritual practices, he was the most powerful strategist who succeeded in uniting Bharat against army of the demigod, alexander the great!

Though he possesed all the knowledge and skills and the talent to rule the country and get himselves as the most powerful king, he rather chose to be a king maker then to be a king himself! History knows him as the most brilliant strategist, Chanakya!
He gave the country the one of the best maurian kings- chandragupta!

In those days of utter chaos in Bharat, when it was all divided and wars happened amongst each other, even one single region posed so many cruelties which would have taken a life time to be fought against them, Chanakya looking at the bigger picture united the whole nation in order to stand up against Alexander, whilst the the small regions were automatically freed from the clutches of internal rages and tyrannical rulers!!
A True Master, Teacher,reformer is the one Who does not aim to take power in his hands but concentrates on the bigger picture and creates not just one but many like him leaders!

I feel this the very need of India today, where there is no lack of young blood, enthusiasm, eagerness to serve and the passion to reform but a proper guidence to channelize the passion and enthusiasm into productive reformation...

One evening, just a day before my exam, few of my cousins turned up at my place and they din bother to call me from my room coz they thought it might just disturb me! :) And when i went over to greet them, one of them just commented, " oh my god! how is it before the exam? ears banging? head spinnig????"

It was just then i realised, that for so many of them it must really have been like this? and this must something like what was called "EXAM PRESSURE"!!! Going through the texts till the last moment! Tea s and Coffees to remain up till late nights! nervous breakdowns! going on fasts! and what not!!! This is something most of us go through a few nights/hours before The Exam!

Somehow in the past few years i have realised, i havent experienced any of these!

This is confusing...!

This is confusing...!

Things that should have been happening are somehow not happening, and things that should not have been happening are dont know why happening! And things that are not happening are making the the ones unhappy about them not happening... and some people are so happy with the things happening dat actually shudnt be happening....
and its making absolutely no effect on my happiness watsoever!!! huh!!! strange!

Q n A!

"The emotions linked to past are Anger, Guilt and Regret while those linked to the future are anxiety and fear... while happiness lies in the present moment..."

Q-but there are some memories remembering whom we feel happy and not angry or guilty, then why??

Answer: You feel happy remembering them because those moments were the moments when you lived in that present moment One hundered percent...! So the only wise thing is to live life in the present moment 100%.... and just be happy!!

just loved this answer!!!

love aarohi :)

"I have absolutely no idea what i m going to write in this post, and I just dont want to write, but since i have promised myself to write something every two days, m definately going to take the pain and just type!"

Have you ever noticed that this is exactly that thing what we lack in life??? its is so easy to make a start but once all said and done, there is so much effort required to just continue! taking a initiative may be a tough job, but taking responsibility to push it to the end is always tougher! But at the same time we just need to take a step, leaving our laziness and the fear behind and thats when every single step towards your goal is lessened!

What particularly stops us from taking that second step? may be the overjoy of doing the start so nicely and just being in that happiness mode? fear of not being as good as we were before? or just laziness...????

A Start!

It has been a mystry what actually pulled me towards the It, but yes, His photo in my first course definately raised a lot a questions and yet a ownership feeling...and for years i waited for what was called The First SudarshanKriya of my liffe and yeah things started to change after that! That one moment when i was as aware of feeling the smallest cell of my body yet so restfull and thoughtless, and exactly this was that moment which i want everone to experience and which keeps me going with the whole thing!

Moments of utter grace, luck and so much knowledge, is what i see when i flash back my life after getting on with My Guru! Now coming to what keeps me working for Him is my unshakable trust and commitment for His words. I know nothing comes with a garuntee of life time njoyment, and there will be times when i would jus be tired of doing whatever i have to, but along with that, that one thing, commitment, is definately above all such feeling level and that is the only thing which has made the real Me.
