Choose your battles wisely

“Choose your battles wisely” is important in living a happy and contented life. It suggests that life is filled with opportunities to choose between making a big deal out of something or simply letting it go, realizing it doesn’t really matter. If you choose your battles wisely, you’ll be far more effective in winning those that are truly important.

Certainly there will be times when you will want or need to argue, confront, or even fight for something you believe in. Many people, however, argue, confront, and fight over practically anything, turning their lives into a series of battles over relatively small issues. There is so much frustration in living this type of life that you lose track of what is truly relevant.

The tiniest disagreement or glitch in your plans can be made into a big deal if your goal (conscious or unconscious) is to have everything work out in your favor.

The truth is, life is rarely exactly the way we want it to be, and other people often don’t act as we would like them to. Moment to moment, there are aspects of life that we like and others that we don’t. There are always going to be people who disagree with you, people who do things differently, and things that don’t work out. If you fight against this principle of life, you’ll spend most of your life fighting battles.

A more peaceful way to live is to decide consciously which battles are worth fighting and which are better left alone.

Who knows what's best for us ??

Yesterday night(25th Dec., 2010), I was coming form my colleagues marriage reception in the bus from Majestic to BTM. (The food was yummy there). Bus was almost vacant out and I was sitting alone, at last big 6-people seat. A small kid, age around 4-5 years, come from front seat to my seat. He wanna sit @ window seat and enjoy d chilly winds. But his mom was not allowing to open the window, as it was damn cold and he was having cough also.

Once, he came to last seat, he tried to open window. But, it was quite a tough task for small kid, window was almost jammed-out. He sit quite for 2 minutes and tried again, with more strength this time. Even now it didn't open. 2 tries and both times failure. The kid still not gave up. He tried 3rd time, and not surprisingly, window was not move-an-inch. He was surprised to see, how much efforts, he was putting and its outcome not reflecting at all. And then, his mom called him, his bus-stop had arrived.

This, small incident, teach me a big lesson- "Like his mom, God knows, what's best for us. Even though, sometimes, we put our best effort, try continuously... outcome is zero. In those times, when stuck, have faith in Almighty ..keep trying...either u will succed or definitely, will gain some experience..."

Well known and still so-called-Secrets

Are there any secrets to live a happier life, successful life ? What's the shortcut to earn respect in society ? Is there any really special ingredient which we unaware of ? How will I get my genie like Alladin ?

All these answers can be answered by few traits/qualities, that I am reading in a book 'The Laws of the Spirit World'. I am trying to work on them, dedicating 3 days for each, defining them according to my way. Hope it will improve me and make a better human being.

So, Let set go...

  1. Revenge- Don't hurt anyone physically, mentally, emotionally, morally and most importantly, Spiritually. Do to others what you expect from them. Just to add more depth, 'Khudh kabhi narootho, but sabhi ruthe huo ko manao'...Yeah, one more thing one can add 'Neki kar, Dariya mein Dal'.

  2. Pride-In positive terms, it is Self-Respect. In negative way, it is Ego. The more vibes of energy will overcome the quality in you. More positive energy means more 'Self-Respect', the more negative energy will turn it into 'Ego'. As simple as this...

  3. Physical and Mental Pain (to self and others)- Giving unnecessary pain to self and others is moral crime. Don't abuse your body and mind by indulging in wrong activities to large extent. On some Occasions must be fine but not regularly. Go with common sense what's right or wrong. Having too much food, drink, no exercise, improper sleep habits are all forms of Physical and Mental pain for self....

  4. Self Pity- In simple words, 'Excuses'. Yes, they are just simple reasons, we keep telling ourselves when we fail and really when there is fear to failure. Don't pity yourself, even if there are more chance sto fail. Losing is not end of the world. See people like Steve Jobs, Einstein, Amitabh Bachchan and your idols, they tried and fail. Tried Again, fail again. No worries. Keep trying wholeheartedly and enjoy the journey, more than the destination...

  5. Selfishness- Wisemen said-"The only person in this world, who can really think best for you is YOU only." No one else can be the best judge for you. One can have many well-wishers like parents, siblings, relatives but not best judges. This is called self-caring. Selfishness is just cross this limit. Think only of yourself. Uncared attitude for your well-wishers, your company, your colleagues or your Countrymen. Be little happy for others also for their success, little sad for their failure, encourage them, laugh with them. Bottomline- "Do to others, what you want them to do to you. "

  6. Showing Off (boast,brag etc)- When one shows off? Either to impress others or to hide his shortcomings or to show his superiority over others. Strange but true. We run from our own weaknesses, instead of improving it. Rich person or knowledgeable person many times show off in public meetings/discussions. What to do in such situations - Haso (Laugh). Showing off sometimes could be ignored but everytime if one start doing it, people will surely start ignoring him....

  7. Swindling/ deceiving:- (Cheat someone, fraud) This one is easy to tackle. B'coz I don't know any person in this world, who gets up in the morning with thoughts of cheating anyone. And, I am sure, you may also don't know any such person. Anyways, we have to just keep a check on ourselves, so that in daily routine life, we don't get overflowed in wrong emotions and become dishonest...
Others to be Continued...

Quest for Self...Sunfeast Open 10K Bangalore Marathon

What a superb experience it was? I want to participate in 2009 year also, but was not able to. This year also although lot of yes-no-yes-no and finally 'Lets just do it'. So, I participated in Sunfeast Open 10K Bangalore Marathon on 23 May, 2009.

Gone there without any thoughts, expectations, pressure, just with cool-calm mind. What I learnt while running those 10,000 metres was just unexpected. It was so much of self-motivation, brain was running like computer, ideas keep pumping in. I was truly amazeed by atmoshpere. I always used to think, why people say 'Run for Oneness', shout 'We Care', cheer for some unknown person..and all those I-thought-logical questions. Most of them got answered by themselves.

Just to tell, while running I was fully tired,having lot of pain in ribs, almost thinking to take break for 10-15 minutes and suddenly, see some senior citizens cheering for others. Oh God, it was awesome inspiration. Instead of stopping, I just continued and after few minutes pain gone automatically.

After so many such incidents on that day, I realize importance of such Public Gatherings. I hope to continue participating in such festival-kinda-atmosphere events and improvize myself as a better Human Being.
