Stay true to yourself. Do your own thing and don’t worry about what people say. It might not make sense to them but that’s ok. Don’t expect everyone to understand you. They don’t have to. It’s between you and the Almighty. So keep going.
What does your heart desire? Imagine it. Say it out loud.
Too often, we keep ourselves from experiencing the grandness that life has for us because we believe the narrative that certain experiences or success is unattainable for us. For others, we take on the belief system that it’s wrong to have desire or dream big daring dreams. But, in reality neither of those things are true.
Keep asking yourself “WHAT DO YOU WANT?”. Desire isn’t something selfish or prideful, rather, it’s something beautiful that we have been given by the almighty.
The more religious you are, the poorer you are, the less educated you are, the less skilled you are, and we don’t want all of that in a better world/society. You will never hear rich, intelligent & successful people preaching about GOD or RELIGION.
God lives inside you & he has million different names. Stop searching him somewhere else. Work on being a better you, that’s the only prayer which will definitely reach your almighty. GOD wants to see a nicer human in you, which means nothing but a kind positive version of yourself. Educate yourself. Make sure you are learning something new every single day of your life, may it be an article or a YouTube video about any new information. STRIVE TO BE A BETTER VERSION OF YOURSELF. LIFE IS FUN, LET IT BE.
LIFE should be lived with a spirit of adventure, loads of good conversations and a heart ready to celebrate and embrace others. LOVE your lover, make love under the stars, let spontaneity lead, keep things fresh and say “I LOVE YOU” a million times a day. SHARE a meal and glass of wine with your tribe. Don’t be stingy with what’s in your hands. Be generous with your words, your creativity, your love. LIVE large, and listen to your convictions. Don’t let the sun go down on anger. And be bold even when you feel like retreating to your safe little cave! Most importantly have faith in almighty with all your heart, mind and soul. (Not my words.)
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. There’s a reason i can’t watch any series in Netflix, I can’t keep up with something random for ages unless it’s something SciFi or Supernatural & Animation. This song is trippy tho, goes with the kinda movies kicks my mood.)
My grandpa died before 4 years at the age of 97+. He lost memory during his last few days. But whenever he was able to recollect his thoughts & was able to understand what’s going on, he used to talk about his involvement in Mahatma Gandhi’s khadi movement during India’s freedom struggle. Khadi means hand woven cotton fabric. He used to preach few things till the day he was alive;
1. Saying/wishing/greeting RAM RAM is not a religious thing, even though LORD RAM is the highest celebrated deity in Hindu religion. It’s about seeing divine in other human life & exchanging equal amounts of respect for that reason.
2. The biggest sinners in this world go to church/temple/mosque very often. Because they have to keep reminding god to wash their sins.
3. 10% of your wealth/income must go towards DANA (in Sanskrit it means DONATION), donation towards helping underprivileged & upliftment of society.
Not a secret, i own a small health supplement business since September-2017. And now that business enjoys a loyal customer base because of good quality products & quick customer query resolution. With those fitness enthusiasts in mind, i started an athleisure clothing brand in August-2019.
Like every other human, i am not perfect & my business is also not perfect all the time. Especially the atheleisure clothing brand i am talking about, not talking about profit or loss. My operation is small and we never made a loss. I am talking about clothes not being perfect sometimes. While manufacturing/stitching/printing, in few cases there’s a misplaced logo or a packaging label mishap, a stitching at wrong part of the clothing material or short hoodie strings, so we reject few clothes while passing it through quality testing. But even those quality reject clothes are completely usable, sometimes even i use them as my layer-1 clothes during winter. Like previous year, this year too we will go to a nearby orphanage & a refugee shelter to donate some winter clothes/blanket/woolen socks. There’s an amazing feeling of fulfillment while giving it back. I am forever grateful to almighty for giving me little more than i can consume.
(In case anyone wants to join, i have updated the address in our CMU university group. Please don’t try to overcrowd the place, 12-13 people are enough. It bums my mood to see people roaming around without mask, so please wear a mask while coming.)
Life can be so beautiful. Five years ago i never would’ve pictured myself where i am right now. I may not have everything i want. I may not have found all the happiness in this world. But almighty has blessed me in certain areas with way more than i ever imagined. In my journey of growth & becoming who i am today, i wish not to hurt anyone. All i hope is to be truthful, busy & productive. Efficient & effective with the way i am, you know, i’m content, i’m content right now. And that gives me immense amount of fulfillment to my soul. I am grateful to be alive & to be breathing. I never imagined i would get this far but i did & if i can do it, then you can too.
Happiness may feel like a far fetched dream. But happiness is not a destination. Chasing it will only ever push you further away from it. The more you chase things or people, the further they run from you. Just acknowledge your own being, your own existence, everything you seek for on the outside has always resided within you. Delve deep within, you’ll realise living is beautiful. Life is a gift. (Not my words).
If you think you are a GOOD PERSON, give without expecting anything in return. It may not come back to you immediately. But your almighty is watching, someday that REWARD of giving will be beyond your imaginations.
People always end up thinking “They lost something while walking on this path of life”.
Let me explain this today. You lost nothing. You don’t need to feel burdened in your own head with this negative thought. Which/what/who belong to you are already there with you or will be with you. Don’t panic or stress. Your almighty’s plan for you is better over yours.
Just be true to yourself, LIFE WILL SEEM EXCITING.
