People pray for CAKE. Sometimes GOD gives cake. And sometimes GOD gives them butter, eggs, oil, icing, a pan & an oven. Then they get frustrated and leave the kitchen.
Let that sink. Sometimes you have everything right in front of you. But HOW BAD do you want it? Everything in life is about your goals & desires. If you are not marching towards it, then who else will do that!?! Time to fix yourself.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Sometimes it feels like the more people talk about it, the less it makes sense. At least UK is back to pre pandemic levels of growth.)
Resting is part of the work. It’s a healthy habit. It’s essential. It brings clarity. It renews your strength. It gives you peace. It drives away fear. It creates space for GOD to do his mighty works through us.
Even if you’ve found yourself with more free time than usual, don’t force yourself too much. Taking a break is necessary. It plays a vital role in your purpose. So, slow down. Talk slowly. Relax. Give your self a break from feeling responsible for anyone else. It’s okay, don’t feel guilty for it. At uncertain times, it’s important to cut yourself some slack. Take a breath, and REST.
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.
Sometimes when things are really trying and painful all we can think is, why on earth do I have to go through this, why do I deserve this? But there’s a better way to approach a trying moment in life. Instead of resisting it, try surrendering to it and considering that there’s a reason it has been given to you and not somebody else. If you are dealing with it, it is part of your journey.
The next time you go through a trying time, find the ways in which you can grow and learn instead of dwelling on your suffering. I know it’s an experience that I need to have if God’s putting me through it. (Not my words.)
Listen to that little voice inside yourself, like a loving parent or a good friend. This is the truest part of your soul, the key to your happiness. Sometimes thoughts, fears, or other people get too loud and we can’t hear ourselves. Do what you need to do to get back in touch.
Today, follow what your heart tells you. Nobody but you knows what is right for you, so listen to your instincts.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I talk very little about games even though i play Xbox games almost every weekend for 1-2 hours. This game trailer looks amazing. Happy to see video game developers connecting cultures & deities.)
GOD is not in a hurry, you are. That’s why you are tired. That’s why you are anxious, and stressed, and disappointed. You just need to remain true & consistent with the way you are in your walk of life. Trust that what’s meant to be yours, will be yours.
Everything I have gone through I could not have done without the love, faith, and support of my family. Even though i stay away from home since i was 16, just being around them once in a year or two brings me joy and I forget about any problem or fear I have. They accept me with all of my flaws. And I accept them as well, no matter what.
Soak up the love of your family today & everyday. Be grateful for the goodness you receive. Love them for everything they are and aren’t. Family gives us strength and builds our character. (Not my words.)
I’m in that chapter of my life where GOD is making me STRONGER, which makes me HAPPY.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. But it’s my blog & it’s my opinion, i have to share what comes from my head or heart. The outcome with religious conversions is always something like this. Today i will not say “how a so-called religion of peace is becoming a major source of radicalism”, that topic some other day. RELIGION in general should teach you a way of living life peacefully, first it must make you a better HUMAN.)
Sometimes my white friends want to know to whom i am saying “RAM RAM” over phone instead of starting a conversation with a simple HELLO!! Today is the right day to answer this. This has something to do with my values, upbringing, religion, morals, childhood & my grandpa’s bedtime stories because my both parents were working. I am not a strong believer in religion the way people portray now a days. But i believe in your beliefs. I believe there’s GOD, a positive divine power guiding us from somewhere. If you are productive, truthful, consistent with what you do from a clean heart, kind or humble towards other human, all of these acts are filled with godly goodness. I am born Hindu, and i believe i am a practicing Hindu. My religion teaches there are multiple forms of GOD, and there are multiple pathways to heaven, so all religions must be treated with equal amounts of respect & acceptance.
Let’s get back to my answer. Before some thousands of years there used to be a King named “Lord Ram”, incarnation of god significant to Hinduism. Some circumstances forced him to stay away from his family & palace. He lived in forest for 14 years like a normal human leaving his royalty aside. During those 14 years, he fought some demons, saved his wife & kingdom after killing a 10 headed monster named Ravan. Those 10 heads represent lust, anger, delusion, greed, pride, envy, mind, intellect, will and the ego. Ravan is the example how certain negative traits can downsize good qualities & the world remembers him as a MONSTER today. Today is the date “LORD RAM” killed Ravan & “godess DURGA” killed mahishasur, this day symbolises victory of good over evil & we celebrate it as DUSSEHRA. HAPPY DUSSEHRA TO EVERYONE WHETHER YOU ARE CELEBRATING OR NOT.
After killing Ravan, Lord Ram returned back to rule his kingdom. Under his kingdom, there was no place for any criminal or derogatory behaviour. He established a standard for men to be truthful, faithful, kind, loyal & brave. Till the day he ruled, every human being enjoyed equal amounts of respect & happiness. So when a Hindu says “RAM RAM”, Ram is the goodness/god inside you/your soul. One Ram is for you & other one for me. The meaning behind it is; “WE ARE EXCHANGING EQUAL AMOUNTS OF RESPECT AS HUMANS WITH A HOPE TO SEE A WORLD LIKE LORD RAM’S KINGDOM WHERE EVERYONE IS HAPPY & TREATED EQUALLY”.
Someone told me this about relationships which touched my heart; “When it’s sent by God, it comes with confirmation. But when it isn’t sent by God, it will come with inconsistency, hesitation, frustration, and confusion”. I felt that for real.
Whatever happening in Israel/Gaza/Palestine, it’s another British colonialism era blunder which was left to blast almost 100 years back. Let’s not go with the political side of it, i am highly unqualified to comment on that. In short, it’s a situation which could have been avoided & it should be avoided. When it’s a fight between a right wing/left wing/liberal or radical group against a sovereign state, the winner must be the sovereign state. That’s how we can move move stronger closer together towards a democratic human society. Whenever you are left to choose between ideas & ideology, choose ideas because there’s space to think & grow.
Israel is a sovereign democratic country & it must protect its territory and interest irrespective of who says what, international support or few foreign media dishing out. I know few people will question my opinion & few will straight point it towards Islamophobia. Sorry to say I DON’T EVEN UNDERSTAND TOO MUCH ABOUT MY OWN RELIGION, so i am not the right person to like or dislike any other’s religion or faith. Let’s say, I CAN’T CONNECT WITH THE IDEA OF DIFFERENT RELIGIONS HAVING DIFFERENT GODS. If there’s a GOD, there’s only one who’s looking forward to see some better HUMANS on this planet. If you believe your GOD is true, he doesn’t need you to protect him, he is way bigger stronger powerful compared to your love or any other person’s hate. Follow his words & work towards becoming a better Human with time instead of nurturing/supporting any radical ideology. Seeing people suffer hurts whether it’s Gaza or the Corona virus situation in India. Hope to see a better tomorrow & leave a better open friendly world for next generation.
Since my childhood i am that odd one out kinda person in my family. My family is a mixture of different values/culture/faith/religion. And i always feel bored when someone talks about religion or God. It’s my middle school days i remember, one of my friends named Mohsin said “he is a true muslim, because he is praying 5 times a day & he is fasting during EID”. The same way another christinan friend said “he follows everything from easter, saint patrick’s day, thanksgiving, christmas to sunday mass because he is a believer in ONE TRUE CHURCH catholic values/teachings”. All such things were just foolish to my middle school brain. My middle school & high school days were all about playing chess, basketball, some video games, playing piano, little bit of painting, if i had too much free time i was teaching trigonometry & physics to few of my dumb friends. I never understood religion & God.
Let’s come to the main part of the story. My religion is Hindu. And both of my parents are full time employees & they are also bit too much into social service. So during my childhood i got plenty of time to spend with my grandparents. Out of curiosity once i asked my grandpa; “All my friends say something about their God or religion. Is there a process to be a true or good hindu?” First he laughed at me for 2 minutes, then he replied; “You become a good human, that’s good hindu”. I again asked; “Which specific God to pray & what’s the prayer i have to chant?” He again laughed at me, then replied; “There are literally 33 million Gods in our religion, even i am confused. Right now finish your homework & studies, eat all vegetables without being a pain to your mama, don’t watch TV for long time, sleep before 9pm, wake up early in the morning, these are all your duties/work at this age, after few years your work will become your identity. And your work is your best worship to your God.” That’s all i was taught about religion. My grandpa died at the age of 97+. I still remember every single moment i spent around him.
Some friends question why i attend church service sometimes even though i am not a Christian!! The answer is; There was a church on my way to school. Father of that church used to give free teacakes to every kid after morning prayer. Sometimes i used to eat that teacake while going to school, and sometimes i used to give it to any homeless or disabled person near my street. These tiny memories are still alive in me. I work & i make little more money than i can consume even after my share of savings+investment, i try to give it back to the society from where i earned. That’s why sometimes it’s a visit to any orphanage, community shelter/home & sometimes also it’s a sunday service. It’s not like I don’t believe in God, it’s more like “I DON’T BELIEVE IN DIFFERENT RELIGIONS HAVE DIFFERENT GODS”. If there’s a GOD, there’s only one who lives inside your goodness.
The gist of the story is; Do something good everyday or just do your work/duty in time, rest assured your GOD loves you.
There’s this one superstition almost everyone of us practices without realising; “Saying bless you when someone sneezes”. Telling someone bless you after a sneeze is a quick reflex that many people possess this superstition. It’s customary to respond to a sneeze so much so that if you fail to bless someone, they may get offended.
But why are we so compelled to say these words to anyone who sneezes? Well, there are a few superstitious theories on why the sneeze specifically calls for a bless you. The most popular began in Rome when the Bubonic plague ravaged the population and one of the symptoms of the disease was sneezing. Pope Gregory the first belief that saying “God bless you” after a sneeze what protect people from Death. There is another theory that stems from ancient history, It used to be believed that a sneeze could accidentally expel someone’s Spirit from their body. Fortunately God could prevent it with the small blessing. Others believed that sneezes expelled unwanted evil spirits. This was good for the sneezer, but it put others at risk. So blessing everyone around was the safety.
(I too say BLESS YOU when someone sneezes, it’s fun & i feel it’s one more way to send some good vibes to other person.)
Most people think their love for their religion or nationalism is unique. About religion I will talk some other day. But let me share today why i find current trend of nationalism stupid yet funny!!
You are born at a specific part of the world. Of course you have to stay loyal to your motherland. But how? You are loyal to your nation by paying your taxes in time, behaving well to your fellow citizens, be nice & welcoming to everyone no matter whether they are born in your country or coming from some other part of the world in search of a better tomorrow. That’s how real nationalism should be. Most modern countries were created after few people migrated & named it their home. We survive today not because of nationalism, but because of “we as humans were in search of right opportunities and right society/surrounding to build that opportunity”.
Let’s talk about current trends of nationalism, i should say TOXIC NATIONALISM. When i see “AMERICA FIRST”, “CHINA FIRST”, “INDIA FIRST” & later that’s followed by “GOD BLESS AMERICA” or any other country’s name in that bold italic place, I laugh at it without a second thought. Because everyone talks something against the other one to prioritise their own nation. Which later spreads hate & violance for nothing. This doesn’t reflect your love for your country. Just imagine JESUS is back to this world again. What he should do with this same ideology? He must embrace his middle eastern livelihood, then go back to his motherland Bethlehem & bless Palestine first to become the richest most powerful country in this world. Thank God, your beloved God is not alive to see such nonsense. Humans are mediocre in so many ways, this is the best worst one. In case you get the joke, i appreciate your time.
(Most of the time you see people spreading this message as a quote from bible. Some also say it’s against God’s grace. This reference is found in Bible, Quran & Jewish teachings as well. The fun part is, they all are wrong about it’s origin. It’s a motto/phrase originated from ancient greece way before any major religion was born. This quote emphasizes on importance of self-initiative efforts.)
Focus on your work, because your work is your responsibility & identity. Tap OUT..🤗
We live in a world where people have very little amount of confidence, faith, belief, moral, knowledge & humor. You can offend anyone with bare minimum effort. It’s laughable to see who flex about their GOD being the greatest in universe also get offended with a moron’s few words against their almighty. For an example; if your GOD is that kinda powerful, neither he gives a fuck about a hater’s hate or he hardly cares about an overenthusiastic follower’s defence to save his grace.
I am not interested in religion or any such matter related to GOD. Correction, actually I kinda believe in GOD but I struggle to believe there are different GODS for different religions. There is definitely something/someone positive guiding us from somewhere. If there is a GOD, he is around us or within us.
I also believe there is no such thing called heaven up above, or else we might have seen it already while traveling in flight or our satellites might have spotted in space near international space station. This EARTH is our heaven or name it hell if you want, we have to work towards making it what we want. We are what we believe & what we create.
God has given you a life & your parents have given you an identity, you got one chance to shine or whine. Few people may suggest there is an afterlife, but I am a strong believer of Karma. Your hell & heaven both exist in this planet looking at your deeds. Never do something which may hurt others purposefully. Always remember to cherish what you have in life and you will feel fulfilled. If you look at what you don’t have, you will never have enough.
Life has nothing “meant to be” in it, it’s all how you perceive. Go & do everything that’s within your capabilities, yes you got one shot.
Ssshhhhhhhh. I am loving every bit of me. It’s all about the old, new, comfortable, confident, little wealthier, confidential, truthful, fit, horny, assholic, determined me & hell yes I am feeling every single day a productive day of my life.
Few people came with a smile & abused me emotionally, physically or financially. That’s the reason behind me being this stronger tougher baddie. My morals & values are way above those who took me on a trip. Somehow it helped me to discard unnecessary clutter from my life. Bars set high. It also made me realize “I am amazing because of my TRUTH”.
Whenever I was about to reach a breaking point, some beautiful people reached me & helped me realize TRUE SELF. I am not that big yet to thank you all, but I am trying to be there for you. Trying to become more available for you. I am on a quest towards success, few of you are making me smile and glide under your sunshine. Mark my words “Someday i will make you proud”.
So many people don’t understand this word’s real use “MANIFESTATION“. How it works!!
Actually it works when you ask for it. Just like a kid knows crying will bring attention/people or food towards him/her. Universe also waits till you seek what you want. The moment you figure out what’s your thing to ask, just say it to your almighty/universe with a open pure heart. The more you remind it to the universe, the manifestation will be that stronger. Don’t think/ask about negative stuffs in life that happened to you or others, they backfire always.
I will not tell you to pick GOD for it. Just understand you are surrounded by some positive & negative energies. Pick the one which will bring you long-term fulfillment instead of instant pleasure.
Love is true when you give it & only give it without expecting anything in return. If you haven’t tried it yet, you are definitely trying to pluck orange from an apple tree.
May GOD help you get rid of your mental sickness.
In case you are in love & your person is in the same positive vibration as you, you don’t need a GOD to rely on. You both will find out best ways together towards a great happening & naughtiest secure life.
Dharma Rakshati Rakshitah means; if you protect Dharma, then Dharma will protect you.
Dharma means Reet, or Cosmic principles or eternal principles which upholds life in this universe. These principles includes, Truth, Compassion and love towards all life, Which is Godly.
By love & Truth whole creation is bound together. Truth to speak whatever seen or understood as it is. Truth is God.
(This is a quote from Mahabharata, an Indian ancient holy scripture)
My friends are asking me questions about how I changed this much in past few months!!
Why I suddenly started believing in God, Astrology, Tarot cards, Horoscope & Future predictions?
My answer: Not all is true. I believe in me first. I listen & see everything, take my decision with only logic backing them. But all those things including God, they all matter to me. I apply a tiny thought to it “Take the best, leave the rest”.
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.
Yes I lead a pretty minimalistic life. Don’t go with my watches & sneakers, I go weak with both. My supplement business feeds my needs, I am definitely happy with the outcome. Planning some other aspects to nurture a better future. All steps I take are measured.
You can’t surprise me, I see something good or bad coming in advance. I learnt little bit of astrology & tarot card reading in a week last month. Lost fear, almost nothing seems unknown anymore with important aspects of life. We all are surrounded by positive/negative energies & we all are living under a stimulation. The only thing you can do is, be the best true you & tell the world you deserve to own this life.
