COOL STUFF TO BUY IN 2019

COOL STUFF TO BUY IN 2019

COOL STUFF TO BUY IN 2019 ( AND THEREAFTER ALSO )


sararasar vivek ie power of discretion


My answer will not be -
  • Books etc
  • New mobile phone -latest model
  • New laptop
  • New stylish outfits, track suit,yoga mat etc
  • Designer outfits
  • Formal n casuals
  • Facials etc
  • Ayurvedic Pancha karma treatment
Well,the list can be extended more.
What I mean to say is that we must see the above things as means to gain happiness. And that feeling of projecting oneself to be a modern fellow who lives according to the modern times.
But I prefer to look beyond and above the normal view. And try to seek more significant insight in day today affairs.
As I said in the beginning, we anticipate happiness using the above things.
But feeling happiness is not enough for us,we look ways for expressing it and further sharing it with others.
And we may not be aware,but the ultimate aim is the serenity of the mind and fulfillment in life.
And then we go on investing our time,money and energy in planning what to buy (definitely) in certain period in near future.
There are alternatives to the above,yes.
For this we have to identify the superfluous things to be avoided and recognize the things of real significance to seize in life. And make efforts to buy it.
A rational approach suggests us to buy happiness,serenity of mind leading to fulfillment.
The term buy indicates the input of time,money and energy available with every one.
Dependence on the mother nature negates spending money. For example, witnessing a sunrise in the morning gives happiness,feeling of getting inspired, and serenity.
COOL STUFF TO BUY IN 2019 -BEAUTIFUL SUNRISE !
Looking at beautiful flowers, a beautiful tree immediately brings about healthy change in our mind.
COOL STUFF TO BUY IN 2019 -BEAUTIFUL ROZE !

COOL STUFF TO BUY IN 2019- BEAUTIFUL TREE !

The essential input is that of time and physical energy, and of course strong will power to do so !
The feeling of happiness,joy,inspiration is incomparable.
And further when we can express these feelings and share it with others it leads to the path of achieving fulfillment in life. That is what , in fact I am feeling now.
And most importantly,the process can be followed through our entire life !

HOW TO BE MORE HEALTHY AND ACTIVE


HOW TO BE MORE HEALTHY AND ACTIVE

HOW TO BE MORE HEALTHY AND ACTIVE - BEWARE OF FOOD WE HAVE !


'I am not feeling well, my sugar,my BP , feel tired ' We often hear such disappointing statements from people. And we can observe them really suffering,living a life waiting to end some how. What can be the reason ?
And further,at this stage they can not even think of doing regular exercises and related activities to regain good health.
And this becomes vicious circle hard to break.

sarasar vivek ie power of discretion 
The main thing is that very few people are aware that health of our mind directly affects our physical health.
You know what, for example, every morning first thing a diabetic person has in mind is to have tea without sugar. This follows the feeling to take insulin tabs without fail. The things go on. When we exchange pleasantries the question is how are you ? And the complaints start at once - my sugar you know — my BP you know…… and so on.
The point is our subconscious mind gets hammering right from morning and continues to get hammered non-stop till we go to sleep.
And our subconscious mind which understands only the present tense and controls the vital inner functions in the body,implements our thoughts effectively, and the hammering we do is thus reflected on our health.
Hundred percent in such cases there is no enthusiasm,but a kind of lethargic attitude is developed, unknowingly or due to ignorance.
And when  question like the above is put forward people eagerly start advising you to do regular exercise,morning walk,pranayama, meditation, pancha karma, ayurvedic alternatives and what not. The diet aspects are also covered with enthusiasm ! 

They all can not be blamed,you know,they also are told to be sympathetic to others. Life is interesting !
I do not intend to say not to follow them.
But what I intend to emphasize here is that we must first take care of mental health.
Beware of what we feed to our mind - by way of reading,watching TV serials,cinemas - throughout the day.
And especially so during the period of ten minutes before we go to bed and immediately after getting up in the morning. 
During this important period we can use self affirmation statements regarding health,our attitude, whatever we desire.

We must feed our mind quality thoughts by reading books of wisdom.  And remember, reading only is not enough.  We must bring into practice the wisdom learnt from others' life experiences.

HOW TO BE MORE HEALTHY AND ACTIVE -QUALITY READING- BOOKS OF WISDOM
This has precondition of giving due respect to supreme values in life - freedom, peace,love,truth,compassion - in respect of every living being.
Have feelings of gratitude while having food after offering to God.
Practicing this difficult tasks daily one develops that enthusiasm and energy to be able to do regular physical exercises and related activities.
And let us not forget that what we implement with great difficulty and sacrifice if it gives better results,be sure it is sustainable for longer period of time,which is of course most desirable.

HOW TO BEAT THE EXAM STRESS AND ANXIETY

HOW TO BEAT THE EXAM STRESS AND ANXIETY


Dear Student Friends,

Out of my own experience as responsible parent of my two sons, both engineers, observing how they used to  beat the exam stress and anxiety, here below I share some thing worth for you to tackle effectively the issue of  'how to beat exam stress and anxiety'.

HOW TO BEAT EXAM STRESS AND ANXIETY


Anxiety is a result of one's own scare in mind whether one  can beat the exam stress or cannot.  Having determined to beat the stress of exam you will be able to overcome the anxiety.

Remember,stress is initially a strong motivating factor making you aware of the set goals to be achieved. 

Therefore,take stress positively.

The need is to have  a peaceful mind. You know,peaceful mind enables you to tap the mind force effectively in time.

Remember the incidents when you got stuck up not able to recollect some important formula? And more you tried desperately the answer eluded you. And then when after getting tired,while relaxing the mind,all of a sudden there it was, the formula itself staring at you mischievously!

This is how mind functions.

For relaxation of mind,use music, cartoons of Tom n Jerry, Laurel n Hardy, Just for Laugh Gag or any comedy film. Hearty laugh relaxes mind to a great extent. 

Have short naps occasionally.  This enables mind to get fresh and alert.

Have full faith in your inner wisdom.

What is inner wisdom ?   Sarasar Vivek 


Well, when you are doing some thing wrong,  the source that warns you against it is your inner wisdom. 

In fact,this is the vital force that guides us in our entire life.  Never ignore it. You will be amazed to realize that it is the most dependable power every one has.

Follow your biological clock methodically.

Have greatest respect to your parents and teachers. Never forget to express your  gratitude for their efforts put in your education.

It is proven fact that feeling and expressing gratitude ensures healthy mind and consequently the body.


Do not ever miss the opportunity to witness sunrise which inspires one's mind to a great extent. You will always be inspired to make efforts to achieve what you dream !



HOW TO BEAT THE EXAM STRESS - RISING SUN !

Have a creative hobby - it may be extra curricular reading, learning music - vocal or instrumental, drawing, bird watching and so on.  In these activities you are directly connected with the mother nature.


HOW TO BEAT THE EXAM STRESS AND ANXIETY -Reading Hobby 

NOW MOST IMPORTANT


APPLICATION OF VISUALIZATION TECHNIQUE

For this,visualize the scene where in you have already achieved your dream completely. 

This is just like running a video in slow motion.
It is advised to make use of your five sense organs- speech,touch,smell,hearing and taste.


For example, you hear telephone rings,you pick up the phone,feel the touch of the receiver,your close friend on the other end congratulates you for your astonishing achievement,''my God!' you say excitedly, "Mom, at last, I have done it !"  You announce with excitement and your mother hugs and feeds you sweets,you really feel the sweetness on your tongue,and your father approaches,patting on your back.

This is only a sample visualization. You may develop it as per your requirements.
It is a proven fact that this techniques gives more than the expected achievement !
The above technique should be applied just before going to bed at night and immediately after getting up in the morning plus whenever you find relaxed time.

REMEMBER :  AS YOU VISUALIZE, THINGS WILL MATERIALIZE IN REALITY !

POSITIVE  SELF AFFIRMATIONS BEFORE GOING TO SLEEP 


This relaxes your mind and builds determination and  self confidence.  These are two-three short lines which are read and repeated in mind ten times. 

Below are a few examples :


  1. I AM CONFIDENT.  ALL THE POSITIVE FORCES IN THE WORLD GUIDE ME ON THE PATH OF SUCCESS. I AM GRATEFUL !
  2. I HAVE BLESSINGS OF MY PARENTS AND MY GURUS. I AM GRATEFUL !
  3. I AM HEALTHY, CONFIDENT AND CHEERFUL.  I AM GRATEFUL !

On the above line, you can write down your own self affirmations depending on your subjects and needs.

The above way is adaptable in every exam in life, not only academic ones. 

BEST OF LUCK, FRIENDS ! HAVE AWARENESS OF YOUR OWN SARASAR VIVEK AND FOLLOW IT EARNESTLY !

HOW TO LIVE A REGRET FREE LIFE

HOW TO LIVE A REGRET FREE LIFE

REGRETS IN LIFE

sarasar vivek -

These are essentially related to the past experiences.
And mind goes contemplating - if only I were ... sort of imaginary situations and the resultant comfortable situations one could have been.
But even to think about them is futile exercise leading to waste of time and energy resources.
Because what happened has happened and can not be reverted. No one can bring back time.

How to live a regret free life -Clouds of past regrets !

But unawareness of this leads to bearing the burden of regret on the mind getting it agitated,restless and thus suffering from it's effects  on own health.

Therefore wisdom of elders teach us not to have regrets about past in the present.

If you contemplate on the following, life will definitely be regret free.
Having life values makes us different from animals.
Ahar,bhaya,maithun and nidra are characteristics of animals. Meaning eating,instinct for survival,procreation and sleep in theses processes animal life is spent.
Ability to think and aspiration for seeking happiness makes human being superior to animal.
For this, there are universally accepted human values. These are essential requirements for healthy coexistence, conducive life environment for all.
Mercy,pity,love,compassion, looking at world as a family, and striving hard for welfare of all members of family irrespective of race,religion,castes, achievement of universal peace in healthy manner are most important aspects of life .
The core approach will be understanding sarasar vivek ie power of discretion and its application . For this quality reading is essential to strengthen sarasar vivek . And of course reading only is not enough. Ability to apply sarasar vivek in daily life is utmost important.

HEALTH BAND

HEALTH BAND 

Health Band And Trackers !



Generally we are more aware of our health.  Our sarasar vivek prompts us to exercise our power of discretion while maintaining our own health. Therefore, we are careful of our diet. 

Health Band - Diet Consciousness

In addition to this, we wish to maintain tracking of our health status as also our related day today physical activities. 

Having come across recently with the term Health Band I started to find out more about the same on internet.  What I gathered information about the same prompted me to write this post.

So let me start.

Health Band

A devise which is in the form of a wristband used for monitoring of our health status related to our day today physical activities is a fitness band.

Fitness Tracker

A fitness band performing specific health related tasks is a fitness tracker.

A fitness tracker is used to measure walking distance, running distance, heart rate, sleep duration and so on.  This data is transferred to a mobile/computer to monitor high and low health status.  This enables us to have a clearer idea of our physical health.

And who will not like to detect health problems at earlier stage ?

Psychological advantages (Get motivation)

It provides an effective motivation regarding health.  

But funny thing is that it has strong analogy with a child pulling the implanted seed from the ground to see how much it has grown. 

It boosts the desire to achieve the goal of maintaining good health.

It encourages to compete with our-self.

It motivates us to decide the food intake quantity wise as well as quality wise.

Health Band - Diet Consciousness !

It can give self confidence with furnishing real data regarding health parameters.


Such gadgets are stylish in look therefore more fashionable and attractive.

It gives rational guidance for healthy change in our habit.

Need to use under medical supervision

It is always advisable to use such gadget as per expert  advice and not on our general knowledge only.

For interpretation of the data medical advice must be sought.

Pros

We can monitor our health on real time basis.

Can set our goals and get natural dose of dopamine on achieving the same !

We have  total privacy using such gadgets.

Ability to detect the fatal signs in time.

Cons

The thought of expenses linger in  mind.

There is no one to control you while competing with yourself.

Verification of accuracy of data is essential.

Seeking Happiness

Seeking  Happiness


Man's Quest for Happiness


Seeking Happiness - Man's Quest for Happiness

Man is in next stage of evolution compared to animals which are controlled by four instincts- aahar, nidra,bhaya, and maithuna ie food,sleep,survival and procreation.
Man is one step ahead in that he seeks happiness. The meaning and significance of happiness for every individual varies.
For example one may get happiness indulging in non-veg food. Another may seek happiness in veg food. The right one is obvious!
Our sarasar vivek ie power of discretion indicates that seeking happiness not at the cost of happiness of others is necessary.
And seeking happiness is natural instinct in human being.
Generally one is unaware whether the happiness he is seeking is worth or not.
Next problem is one generally seeks happiness originating from external factors in the world. And realizes that those factors are not in his control and permanent one.
In fact,happiness is within us. Let us not forget, being happy is more important than becoming happy involving unnecessary efforts and needless hard work.
But being unaware one goes on trying to seek happiness from the world around.
In the process one realizes that such happiness is momentary. Consequently one looks for next kind of happiness. And this process is a continuous one. And we wonder why one constantly runs towards happiness putting in all possible efforts.
Next point is while craving for happiness of different types,one is not able to set out priorities.
Also, one often fails to understand the significance of type of happiness one is seeking. Whether it is healthy,positive,achieved in a non-violence means and so on.
And having achieved happiness is not enough as one also wants to share it.
I think all this complexity can be avoided if one is aware of -
  • meaning and significance of supreme values of life -freedom,peace,love, compassion.
  • meaning and significance of polarities in values like truth and untruth, ethical and unethical, healthy and unhealthy, violence and non-violence, moral and amoral and so on.
  • having understood the above,one should make right choices while making decisions
  • necessity to develop preparedness to accept the consequences of one's own decision making.
Having implemented the above,one will not constantly run after happiness but applying sarasar vivek achieve good,healthy,positive happiness towards transformation in life.

Books That Will Change Your Life For The Better

Books That Will Change Your Life For The Better


And You Will Definitely Read


As my dear readers know well, One's downfall in the life can be avoided by Sarasar Vivek i.e. power of discretion.  

For this, quality reading is essential  to strengthen  Sarasar Vivek i.e. power of discretion.

In this context, I am eager to introduce my dear readers with the books that will change our life for the better.

Of these, the first two books I have read  in the recent past and felt that I must keep posted my readers of the same.

1. Inner Engineering- A Yogi's Guide to Joy by Sadhguru

Around the time when I decided to retire voluntarily, certain queries were rising in my mind - like Who I Am ?, What is relation between mind and body and their interdependence, why it is essential to maintain balance and rhythm between them ? What is energy field ?  How it can effect us ? What is spirituality?

Post retirement I had enough time to devote to my passionate hobby of quality reading.  In that period, my son present the above book by Sadhguru which I eagerly read and got familiar with the transformational concept of Inner Engineering.

This is the powerful practice that enables the reader to synchronize mind and body with energies around and within towards infinite power and the possibilities.

Part Two of this book is significant which contains insightful revelation on Body, Mind, and Energy. The last chapter Joy is really meaningful. 

Even a light and casual reading of this book will change one's life for the better.
    




2.   Dying to be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing

Last month only I read Marathi translation of this book.  The books is about the author's own experience of her self-realization, her near death experience leading her to a significant insight, her ability to effectively interpret her interaction with the power within and foresee effective cure from cancer, and most important, her identifying the real cause of cancer.

The author, shares her life spectrum right from her birth to her near death experience and back to normal life and the significant changes that she experienced in her post recovery life. All these are really pearls of wisdom related to suffering from cancer, illness, existence of fear in mind, pure love and its tremendous power, and the humanity.  And I am sure an  avid reader would not like to miss.





3.  What if This Is Heaven? How Our Cultural Myths Prevent Us From Experiencing Heaven On Earth.     


The Author, Anita Moorjani, after her near death experience as shared in her book Dying to Be Me, shares her insight on truth that is beyond and above awareness of the common people. While dwelling upon the conditioning one is subjected to right from childhood for generations together, and which are assimilated as truth without any inquiry, the author  here emphasizes the importance of analyzing this mind conditioning on the way to self realization, and how our cultural myths prevent us from experiencing heaven here itself.  And to substantiate the same the author here shares  her own experiences in life that lead to revelation of the need to understand the real crux of such upbringing in life.

I have not read this book.  But after reading the brief introduction of the book, being eager to read, this book is on my list to read in 2019.

Is It Normal To Not Feel Normal ?

Is It Normal To Not Feel Normal ?


HOW TO OVERCOME THIS ABNORMALITY ?


Not to feel normal on a daily basis is not normal
If we apply our sarasar vivek, we find the obvious reason for the above symptom.
It may have two probable aspects. Health of body and /or mind.
If one is physically not alright then one needs medical advice.
Second  probable reason is no sound mental health.
For physical health 
  • one must pay attention to physical hygiene. 
  • Taking daily bath,once or twice a day
  • drinking pure water 
  • no outside food 
  • observing strict diet as per doctor's advice 
  • maintaining clean nails, etc.
  • physical exercise

And one pays too much attention by opting for bath soap, Ayurveda and  herbal soap.
However, for mental health one has no clear  and effective ideas to be implemented. 
For mental health 
First of all, one is not aware of mental health and how to achieve it.
As in case of physical health, the way one is aware of the quality of food intake,for mental health also one must be equally aware of what one needs to feed own mind.
And how can healthy feeding of the mind be achieved?
The five sense organs one uses to perceive the world around can be used effectively.
One must -
  • see good and healthy things 
  • read quality books
  • watch quality movie,TV show
  • befriend quality people 
  • always be in the company of wise people
  • hear healthy thought (satsang), music etc.
  • touch healthy things, avoid touching garbage and dirt etc.
  • smell-one must have the sense of quality thing and able to detect bad things immediately to discard at once.
  • tongue to be used for healthy speech which is good for oneself and for others also.
  • painstakingly ensure that the mind is engrossed in positive thoughts, things,scene,vision,company.

Is is normal to not feel normal?
And most important and effective thing is never forget quality reading.  And of course, reading only is not enough.  The wisdom learnt by quality reading must be implemented in practice. 

This will ensure leading a normal life where it is normal to feel normal every day.

Correct ?  Please comment.

Do We Regret Being Born ?

Do We Regret Being Born ?


Do We Ever Wish We Were Never Born?


Life is very strange - the famous saying.
It is always advised to be aware of our sarasar vivek ie power of discretion and apply the same on the path of transformation in life.
In childhood one gets introduced to several aspects of life - love of parents,company of siblings and attachment thereto-the peers- the beauty of mother nature-the concept of the Guru-
In teen age,one is a bit rebellious,dream pursuer, always miles away from reality,the natural attraction towards opposite gender,
In later stage one gets engaged in pursuing career, getting settled etc.
Then follows the inevitable sansara and related botheration.
And then efforts to fulfilling obligations,responsibilities,the success and failure in meeting the same and the resultant frustration,helplessness, anxieties.
And the stage is reached when health problems come up due to ageing.
The Atma, the soul starts feeling “Enough now!”.
The great Marathi Saint Tukarama has said “ Ya samsarachya paee Harinam athavat nahi.”- Meaning, the Atma is so much engaged and busy in mundane issues of life that there is no time even to think about God.
Add to this the suffering related to ageing,the soul gets fed up,frustrated,hopeless and the resultant dominant feeling of “ Why I was born at all!”
And thus there is dominant feeling I was never born.
The Hindu religion's concept of life reincarnation is very significant in this context. The soul goes through 84,00,000 life cycles going through evolution from single cell living entity to complex human being,the last stage of evolution. The recent research revealed this number as 87,50,000. Therefore, it is always advised not to waste human life by downfall to lower form of life to avoid going through rigors of life cycle again and again.
Thus,ultimately the concept of Moksha, the great salvation,liberation from life cycle.
And surprisingly this revelation is realized at the Sandhya Chchaya  stage of life, ie. old age.
Therefore, one must always be aware of own sarasar vivek ie power of discretion and apply the same effectively to achieve transformation life towards spiritual progress.
That's the life.
What are your feelings?
