Ancient Indian Science of Prana

What is Prana?

We have heard about Yoga and Pranayama. Prana is a Sanskrit word and the translation in English is still not apt or possible in a single word or a bunch of statements. Prana is mostly translated in English as ‘Life Force’ and many also refer Oxygen as Prana.

I am not a Sanskrit scholar to give translation. However, by reading different texts, I tried to grasp what the ancients mean by Prana. Prana means Energy and my Explanation for the same is as below:

Light is a source of Energy as we say. But Light contains Photon which are particle in nature. Science also says that Photon contains quantum of Energy. By this, Photon carries Energy is the understanding.

In a similar sense, Oxygen is a matter(gas) but it in-turn will carry Energy(assume). The Matter is of Four State as identified(solid,liquid,gas,plasma) and these are all the manifestations of Energy and in-turn will carry Energy as well. A Photon is a manifestation of Energy and it in turn will carry Energy.

We intake air,Water and Food. We also have Vision, Sound, Taste and Smell has Inputs. The Energy from Air, Water and Food will be referred to as Prana.  In other sense, If we breathe Pure air, we intake more Prana and if the air is impure and polluted, the prana will be less. Same with  contaminated and polluted water and food. In that sense, Vegetarian Food will have more Prana than non-vegetarian food.

Air(Oxygen),Water and Food are important for our survival. Lets see How it works,

We drink Water(Prana) and it forms the blood and We eat food(Prana) which gets mixed in the blood and We breathe Oxygen(Prana) which burns the Food and supplies Energy as well as revitalizes the Body. There is a Channel for the Prana Flow in the Body. These Channels are called as Nadis.

What are Nadis?
Nadis are the nostrils, esophagus and Blood vessels. These are the channels in which the prana(Energy) flows.
There are two nostrils called as Ida and Pingala and the connecting point of the two nadis is called sushumna. If there are any blocks in the nostrils, the flow of Energy may get hindered and hence techniques like Pranayamana are of help.
Just like sushumna is a connecting Point for two nostrils, there are in total 72,000 connecting points in the blood vessels as well which are called as Chakras.

What are Chakras?
Chakras are the junction points for the Energy flow. If we connect two pipes for the flow of water and in case there is a block or hold in the junction, the flow or speed of water might get reduced. In a similar way, if there is any blockage in the blood vessel connecting points, the flow of prana could get affected. Pranayamana technique will be effective in the nostril and esophagus and it cannot be as effective in the blood vessels. Precaution is needed to maintain the blood(which carries prana) and this can be done by taking hygienic food which doesn’t contain any cholesterol and other junk. A fresh green vegetable has more prana than the dead meat. A fruit has more prana than the cooked food. A Fruit Juice has more prana than tea or coffee.

Seven Chakras and its Significance:
Of the 72,000 connecting points in the nadis(blood vessels) the Seven are the main Chakras. This number as such 72,000 may be associated with the heart beat(72 times) and the pulse rate(about 72 times). These are the termed as Main chakras as they are in line with the nervous system of the spinal cord. Hence whatever you think(mind), you will likely to spend the energy on that thought. For example, if you think about eating ice cream, you will use your energy thinking about icecream and focus on them to start an action with or without conscious. You may satisfy the thought by buying an ice cream and even if you don’t buy it now, you would have this thought pending which can affect your other routine works and in spending enough energy on them or concentrating.

The Seven Chakras will correspond to the endocrine glands in the human body and if there is any thought in the mind, the brain will command the endocrine glands to produce hormones. If the Mind is in fear, the brain would command the adrenal glands to secrete androgen and you would likely to spend your energy on fear and survival. This is True because when there is someone coming to kill you with a knife and we are hiding under a bed, we feel a sudden rise in Energy level in the body and there will be heavy breathe to supply more prana for the exhausting energy.

Avatar for the Trees

Avatar for the Trees – A Talk by Trees in Tropical Forest

Disclaimer : This is an imaginary Post. If the world is Real; this post would also be Real.

Location : A Tropical Rain Forest

Papaya  : People fear me since the papaya fruit will likely cause abortion and the pregnant woman usually avoid eating the fruit and even the doctors don’t advice anyone to eat papaya even though I have lot of benefits.

Coconut  : My friends in city used to say that coconut is widely used by people and I am getting costly each day. People are spending Rs.30 to Rs.50 to drink a coconut water. Also, a lot of companies have come up with brands stating 100% Pure Unflavored drink.

Avocado  : Wow, I would say, “Coconut Tree, You are great! ” Many don’t know me and many would have not even heard my name. Even though my avocado fruit has properties to reduce cholesterol, I could see cholesterol is still a major problem with people as they have started eating all kind of junk foods.

Sugarcane : I have one objection with you, avocado. Are you sure that people are eating food(I mean Junk Food). I believe they are eating products which are packed, sealed. They just take out the product and eat. Sometimes, they may have to heat the product.

Date : Yes, its true. People are eating Products. I knew this because, I was once exchanged with old iron craps but now some companies have recognized my true worth and have created brands in me.

Papaya : Does it mean that People wont appreciate the true worth and they likely go behind products. Now, few companies have started to recognize the anti-aging properties papaya has and are creating fairness creams, soaps and the sales are also increasing day by day.

Sugarcane : Yes, its true that people wont appreciate the true worth until one day they lose it. People needs everything today including entertainment and instant gratification and they don’t care about the future.

Coconut : what do you mean by they don’t care about future? Are they not developing day by day in Science, Technology and Everything?  A lot of deadly disease has been cured and they are sending spaceships to mars to identify if water is present there. To say in short, they have even invented robots to climb and pluck coconuts.

Touch Me Not Plant : Can, I join you guys if you don’t mind. People are developing day by day but they are cutting down the trees. Don’t you know that? We are the ones who provide them oxygen to breathe and they are destroying us to build houses and companies to live. what they fail to understand is that they need oxygen to live.

Avocado: I believe this is not an issue with people. Its an issue with media. They need to recognize and appreciate the wonders. I am not saying that I need recognition as I am less recognized. Almost the world have watched a film called Avatar, why its because of media.

Sugarcane : People watch Avatar and no one really cared to take some action even though the movie was about trees. How many planted a tree after watching the movie? I don’t think media can help in shaping the future of the world.

Date : Yes, its true. Media cares only about sensation and people care only if something is interesting or entertaining. People think they have lot of worries and they don’t bother about anything. Even they watch only Entertainment movies.

Papaya : Lets come to the point. So, what steps we can take in order to protect ourselves. Can we start a union just like people do to safeguard their rights? We have to teach a lesson to them so that they can understand what will happen if we stop breathing.

Touch Me Not Plant : The best idea to teach a lesson to them is by creating a avatar.

Coconut : Wait.. Wait.. what are to trying to say.

Touch Me Not Plant : Wait. Let me explain. We need to create an Avatar who seem like a human and we have to enter the city and create chaos. Slowly, we will penetrate the city.

Coconut : If they don’t understand, we shall wipe them out just like what the villains did in Avatar? Am I right? So, who is the Avatar.

All : Its the Money Plant!

Mind is not our Choice?

 Mind is not in our hands or Our Mind is not our Choice.  How is that Mind is not our choice?

Scenario One: JoAnn and her Birthday Gift.

Day One:

JoAnn wanted to buy a gift for her friend’s birthday. She had 100 bucks and she found a wonderful watch and when she was about to purchase it, someone gently requests her that they wanted the watch and JoAnn felt sorry for them and let them buy it.

Day Two:

JoAnn went to a different shopping center and she was surprised to  find the same watch again but now she came to know that someone has already ordered it and now she approaches the concerned person to ask gently that she was in need of the watch but she were not successful in getting it.

Mind Analysis:I helped a person on Day One and in Day Two when the same thing happened to me, no one helped me.         Attitude:She now develop a Attitude that not to help others.

Day Three:

A Friend of JoAnn asked her to lend 100 bucks for a medical emergency. She just replied,” I don’t have any money now”. JoAnn went to a shop to buy some watch which was available for 100 bucks as it was getting delayed. She also felt sad about the lie she said to her friend

Day Four:

When the watch had been gifted to her friend , her friend replied that, I have so many watches and it could have been better if I had got something else. JoAnn felt sorry that she had taken three days to present a gift and that she was not appreciated. She also had a thought that,”I could have helped a friend who had an emergency.”

Mind Analysis: I did not help the Person in Day Three and gave a present to a person on Day Four and I was not appreciated. Attitude:Its better to help a person who is in need rather than who doesn’t ask for help.                                                    

All the Attitudes a person have turns into his character.How is that Attitude turns into a Character?

Scenario Two:  Dong  Lee Mind and his Attitude

Dong Lee Attitude: Smoking is injurious to health and I came to know that many smokers died of cancer.

Dong Lee goes to a party where everyone in the party smokes, some compels him to smoke but he was so strong that he did not accept their request. Everyone in  the party came to an conclusion about Dong that Dong never smokes(Dong Character).

When someone someday finds Dong Lee smoking, they would question him, I thought you would never smoke?

Dong would reply that I started this habit recently since I thought smoking one or two cigars per week is not so injurious( Changed Attitude).

A Attitude of a person varies from Time to Time and the character of a person is what seen by others.

Example:

  • I never thought you would do like this.
  • I did not expect this from you.
  • I believed you but you cheated me.

We assume a Character on a person and would  view the person as the character and if the attitude change, the character change.

If Attitude of a Person can Change, why is that I am not able to change my habit?

We just need to understand that “Our Mind is not our Choice” or in other words, “Our Mind is not in Our Hands.

Why is that Mind is not our Choice and How to make it as Our Choice?

The Brain is an Organ which receives constant inputs from sense organs in the body and stores the information and the Output of the information can be called as a thought.

A series of thoughts can be called as Mind.

Example: I forgot where I kept my pen?

Upon Analyzing the information stored in the brain like where you went, whom you met and if you had given to someone, these thoughts can be put together as Mind.

The Information you receive will change day by day and the hence chances are that your mind changes and so does your attitude and character changes.

Now, The Real problem is if we want to really change something it seems to be very difficult.

Example:

  • I want to reduce my weight. Even though I have read a lot of information about being slim; I am unable to become slim.
  • I want to quit my bad habits such as smoking, but I am unable to do so; may be I think I got addicted.

So How to change an Habit or to become a better person?

We need to know about the Three Kinds of Mind to understand how we can change or how we can use our mind to become a better person.

  1. Conscious Mind – Thoughts
  2.  Sub-Conscious Mind – Habits (Character- Attitude)
  3. Unconscious Mind – Sleep

In Simple Words, Sub-Conscious Mind is the one which controls Habits. It will make you to remember even if you forget it.

Example:

Brushing the Teeth is an Habitual Action we do daily which is controlled by Sub-Conscious.

But in Day One, You would not have remembered that we need to brush our teeth and our mother would have reminded us to do so.

Thus it takes nearly a month for a subconscious mind to remind us an activity to do daily.

In Short we Just need to follow the action for 5 days. The Next Two days(Saturday and Sunday) again mother has to wake us up and then ask to brush our teeth.

To Change an Habit and to change ourselves, We just need to do the activity for 5 days.

Heart is the symbol of love?

Heart is treated as a Symbol of Emotion.

  • Do What your Heart says
  • Follow your Heart
  • Don’t take it to your Heart
  • You are in my Heart
  • You stole my Heart
  • You made me a broken Heart

The above sentences are always referred by people and if we think deeper, Mind is the one which is related with thoughts.

So, What is the function of the Heart?

The Heart is just another organ in the body just like Lung or Kidney.

The Heart is just a pump to supply oxygenated Blood(Blood contains 92% water by volume) to all parts of the body where the primary task of lung is to supply oxygen to the blood and that of kidney to purify the blood where the nutrients can be sent to all the body cells for their normal functions.

Hence, Emotions don’t arise from the Heart.

Run Lola Run:

Suppose we run, the Heart beats faster and we breath faster than normal. The more we run, more the energy is used and the body needs more nutrients and thus heart beats faster to supply necessary nutrients. When all the nutrients in the blood are exhausted, there is no more energy left and we would slow down or  sit for relaxing and drink a glass of glucose since it can directly dissolve in the blood for instant energy.

Mind the Real Symbol of Emotion:

The Mind represents the Individuality while rest of the organs are same in every person. Its the Mind that distinguishes from one person to another. The Other bodily differences such as hair color, body shape are due to genes in the DNA.

Hence, Emotion is an experience from the Individual mind based on the external influences.

Scenario where Mind causes Emotions:

Person-A is happy 🙂 to hear a pop song and Person-B likes rock song.

Person-B is Sad 😦 due to the death of a friend and Person-B is happy that his enemy is dead.

Outcome of the Emotions from Mind:

Crying is an indication of Sadness where the outcome of the emotion is tears in the eyes.

This means emotions arise from the mind will be expressed in the body.

  • When we are Happy, we Jump.
  • When we are Angry, we shout.

So, if mind is responsible for Emotion, why does Heart come into picture?

Consider a scenario, its raining heavily outside and your partner is waiting for you near railway station

Now what does your heart say?

Even if it rains, I don’t care and all I wanted is to meet my partner and hence I would follow my heart!!

The Above Scenario is a Decision making process such as Mind needs to take action based on a condition

IF it had not been rained, I would have gone to meet my partner and now that I don’t even have an umbrella.

IF it rains, my partner asked me to stay, ELSE I could have gone.

There are two or more actions from the Mind and its a human tendency to view that one of the action comes from the heart.

Relation between Mind and Heart:

WHEN the rich person turns that side, let me snatch his purse.

The Thief is now thrown into an situation where his Mind is tensed and his heart beats faster and the Mind turns to be alert and active.

Now the Mind might take a decision, “Don’t take risk” which is viewed by the thief that the heart says,”Don’t take risk”

The Simple relationship between Mind and Heart is that,” Nerves connected to the Heart regulate the Speed of the Heart” just like the nerves that connect each and every part of the body(Connection between Mind and Body is through Nerves).

Relation between Love and Heart:

In Case of Love such as Lust, attraction or attachment, the mind causes the nerves to activate the glands and hormones(testosterone or estrogen, Adrenaline,Dopamine) are secreted in the blood and its the heart which pumps this blood all over the body and its the human tendency to believe that Heart is choosing a partner.

Its the Mind which goes out of control and claims that the Heart is in Love.

If we can control the Mind, the Heart will do its duty properly.

So How to control the Mind?

Coffee lover thinks that, “Drinking too much coffee is not good for health” and he plans to avoid drinking coffee.

Suppose, he comes across the aroma of coffee, he will never drink coffee if he asks his mind to not drink coffee.

The more clearer the mind, the more its easy to control!!

Palmistry is a Mystery

I am not interested in Palmistry and I did not ask anyone to check my palms.

One Day, I was traveling in a bus and a guy came and sat to me and checked my palms and said something that this is what will happen to you and just like that left in the next stop. I was wondering who is he and why on earth he is telling me things which I did not ask.

But, I don’t want that thing to happen and I was very hard in trying and forcing myself that such a thing should not happen and I wanted to prove that he was wrong!! By my acts, I was going into a state of madness and I would be happy if some events were favorable and sad when the events turn unfavorable.

Unfortunately, However hard I tried I was not able to create the Event against his words and what he said might happen to me.  Since the future is unpredictable, whatever can happen and I need to focus on my goals!!

 

Tense becomes Tension

Why Tense becomes Tension?

What we have which is common for anybody?

Time – 24 Hours a Day. However, we have differentiated Time as Past,Present and Future. We call it as

Past Tense

Present Tense

Future Tense

Now, Consider a Child is born.

The Child lives the present. The Child doesnt know about the past or dont worry about the Future. The Survival of the baby is taken care by the parents.

The Child slowly understands mother,father,relations and others. As the baby grows these nearby such as family becomes its past.

It enters a new world- School. This is the Time it starts to worry about Future.

All Children cry to go to School. The Mother cautions the child saying, “If You do not eat the food, teacher is coming to beat you.”

In the evening, the child is asked to prepare for the Next Day(Future) by giving tasks such as Home work or to study for the test.

A scenerio:

A child asks for a chocolate, the (past) parents tell the child that,”Only if you get First Rank(Future) I will buy and give you”

We worry about the Future!

We feel sad for the Past!

We never live the Present!

Now read the First Line for this Post!

How to Live Longer

There is a relation between Breathe and Longivity.

For Example:

Dog breathe 72 Times per minute – Can Live 12 Years

Horse breathe 30 Times per minute – Can Live 25 to 30 Years

Elephant breathe 14-18 Times per minute – Can Live 100 Years

If Man breathe 13-15 Times per minute – Can Live 160 Years

 

Our Body is just like a machine. It needs to perform at a steady phase and hence it can live longer period.

The Inner Cry

When a Child is born, a mother’s happiness has no bounds and a father would have a feeling of success and cant control the feelings to share to everyone.

The  common Question asked is How does the child look! Is He looking like  father?

When the child is grown up, They ask a Question what do you want to become when you grow up?

Some of the answers of the child would be a Pilot, Police,Hero or Doctor.

When the child is taken outside, the child would cry to buy something.

The Father would buy them all to satisfy the child. The Child face would be full of happiness!!

Its Time for the Child Education – The School life begins and the college life ends.

The Investment of the Father has come to an End!

Now its Time for the Child to repay the Father’s Debt.

When the child thinks it time to fulfill his dreams and when it is time for desires to blossom.There comes a checkmate from the family to take over the responsibility. A responsibility to take care of the family and to repay the debts spent for child growth such as buying when the child cried and for the educational investments.

A child with huge responsibility is sandwiched between responsibility and dreams and there is an inner cry which cannot be heard.

Child Labor is not yet eradicated, it has turned into an investment model by the Poor father without the knowledge of the child.

When a Child is born, a mother’s happiness has no bounds and a father would have a feeling of success and cant control the feelings to share to everyone.

 

The Adamant Love

  • Every Time or may be Every Second, I am thinking about her.
  • Whenever I do something, it happens that my mind thinks whether she would like what I am doing now even if it no way relevant to her.
  • There is no patience, whenever I have an information I am eager to share with her.
  • Whenever I call her and she doesn’t pickup and I keep worrying all time and my mind thinks why she has not answered the call.
  • Some Days thoughts are filled that I am disturbing her and again it is out of control to call her to ask sorry if I have disturbed her.
  • There is always a Question in mind on whether she likes me or a thought that I am unable to understand her.

If any of the above scenarios  is true to a person then the person may assume that it is Love but more apt word should be Adamant.

The Adamant Nature is a devil which kills the self and others.

Examples of Adamant Nature:

  • As a child, we ask our parents to buy something and if we did not get it, we turn adamant and cry till we get what we wanted.
  • In other case, we cry to get something from our parents and continue to cry and once they give us, we might have said,”I don’t need it. Get Away from me”.

Understanding Adamant Nature:

  • By Being Adamant, we don’t listen to others and their intention of what they are trying to tell.
  • We also don’t express ourselves the real situation and just try to repeat the same answer again and again.

How to overcome Adamant Nature:

  • Being Adamant is an Attitude.
  • Easy way to change the Adamant nature is to have a “Take it easy Policy”.
  • Focus on others happiness and try to accept and respect the suggestions from them.
  • The words “Focus on others happiness” doesn’t mean you have to worry about them thinking if they are happy or not.

Desires-Good or Bad?

I was born in a middle class and I always had a feeling that I had no desires.

Some of My Attitudes were:

  • I never went shopping and I never had an idea to eat a delicious cake or chocolate when I crossed a bakery.
  • I was not moved towards luxury and I was Contentment.
  • Though I had some aim or thoughts to live better and healthier and I never used the word rich in my mind.

A Question on Desire:

When I was in my Final Year College, I happened to hear my friends speak very curious about money. One of my friend had joined a network marketing company and he tried to convince me for joining his network.

I was not moved by any of his words when he said you can get rich or buy a car. He showed me some checks and he pointed out few of his friends who had bought a car before even owning a degree.

Later after a month, one of my uncle called me and asked, ” Are you free on Saturday” and when I said “Yes” he quickly said “Bring my wife and kid to beach railway station” and he kept the call. I thought he would be in office and later take them for some hospitality and he asked some help to bring them carefully but I still had some confusion.

Then when I went there, he had taken me into a meeting hall and I could find men and women greeting each other and my uncle introduced me to them. All the people eyes were on me and I felt they are trying to act to me. Quickly I figured out that this should be some program about money.

As expected, a speaker came and addressed the issues about money, foreign trip, buying house and cars. Then the speaker asked a question who are all new for today’s sessions and I raised my hand. He addressed me that,You are about to recommend some products and earn money and proceeded with asking what is the recent movie you have seen?

I answered a movie name and quickly he asked was the movie good?

I answered yes and he asked whether you tell or discuss with your friends about the movie?

For this I answered No which he was not expecting and explained him that I don’t like to discuss about films or politics and that I like to be reserved.

He then quickly changed his questions on How much money to make and that you wont be able to get rich in your way.

I just answered that I would get a job(I already had an offer in hand) and I was confident that I would live my life happily with the job and the path I would travel and I also added that I don’t have any desires for money which had a meaning that I am not thinking to get into luxury.

After the meeting was over, a women came forward and asked me, “You don’t have any desires to get rich?” and then they saw me as strange which created a thinking, “Am I normal?”

Some of the people in the meeting said, we need to have desired in order to go forward in life.

In Think and Grow Rich, the author had written a burning desire is the key for riches.

Then I was deeply in thoughts for months, on what is my desire?

Desires – Spiritual View:

I  have read in some books that Buddha, a spiritualist had mentioned, Desires are the causes of sufferings.

I quickly checked if it is relevant in my life and I made a rewind

A Flashback:

When I was 6 or 7, one night I had a thought to eat drumstick and asked my parents and they said no shows were open now. Then I started to cry and then my parents had found them in our garden and prepared it.

I also cried for a toy gun after watching some action movies and the gun was broken in few days.

One night it rained heavily and asked my father to get a rain coat since its raining. He said I will get it tomorrow since it is raining now. I cried and said I want it to wear it for school tomorrow if it rains tomorrow. Then we went in rain and came wearing the rain coat once the rain stopped.

Later  these  desires  had disappeared and I no longer needed once I got want I wanted.

All these are silly incidents in childhood for everybody but a desire had taken a suffering before I had got anything I wanted.

A famous saying reminds me, “No Pain No Gain”

In Other words, it takes a pain to gain.

Desires – Philosophical View:

Once I heard a note about Socrates,a philosopher. It was mentioned that Socrates used to go to a shopping street and a person asked, ” I know you wont shop anything and why is that you are coming here?”

For it Socrates had answered,” I just come to see what things are there and How I am happy without those things

Through this I inferred that Socrates might have had an attitude not to buy things and try to extract happiness through things which might not be necessary.

Benjamin Franklin had written, “It is much easier to suppress a first desire than to satisfy those that follow.”

It might be inferred that A Desire to get things and to extract happiness and again follow to make it a process. It might be wise enough to suppress a desire which is not so worth.

The Word suppress made me to rewind in my past.

A Flashback:

During my School vacation, my mother used to take me to some of my relatives home to stay for a few days or week. I felt that I was not treated good since I was made to do some household works and I was not given proper food. It had made me tears during my childhood and I used to cry separately where nobody sees me. My relatives motive might be to train me or making me to learn household things but as a child I had a pain and I started to suppress my desires from there. Whenever they had a food or bought a chocolate I neglected it even though I had a desire to have it.It then started to happen on every year vacation and it had rooted in my mind to suppress the desires.

Desire and  Sense:

If you have noted I was talking about food. Could We call a Desire for Food.

As some of them say, “Desires are the essence of Life.  A Desire for Food is always there and once its lost we will die.”

The Words, “Desire for Food” created a thinking in me.

There is difference between Need  and Desire and the meaning for desire seems closer to Want.

We Need Food to live should be a statement rather than We Want Food to live. So, a Desire would be I want a Tasty Food.Again, the Word Taste had made me to think further. The Word Taste has to do something with Sense Organs.

We have Five external Sense Organs-Eyes,Ears,Nose,Tongue and Skin. Hence, Desire has to be something associated with these external Five Sense Organs.

For Instance:

  • He sees a beautiful girl and wants her to be his friend
  • Her voice seems to be lovely and he is wanting to see her.
  • When a food smell is good, he tries to reach it.
  • He want to eat the food which is tasty.
  • He touches her when he is romantic.

In this way, I believe Desires have to be associated with external sense organs.

The Eye is the most powerful sense organ in association with desire and creates influences on other sense organs.

For Instance:

  • I read somewhere that Bill Gates has a great desire for beauty and he likes to surround himself with beautiful things.
  • The Eye sees your favorite Food and it influences the Tongue to eat it and it may or may not be tasty as expected by the eye.

So What about the Saying-Desire for Money as money doesn’t seem to be attractive to sense organs.

Money is all about Need.

We need money even though the five sense organs doesn’t want it.

If people say, ” I have a desire for money” it is related with Need or indirectly related with external 5 sense organs to have money buy things they want to extract happiness.

Desires are therefore an emotion which will rise and fade away if they are satisfied by 5 sense organs such as eating too much of sweet fades away the taste.

The reason the philosophers and spiritualist infer Desires are causes of sufferings because it is when you try to extract happiness by wanting things we do not have or we cannot have and since you have raised the desire and it has not yet faded-you suffer.

Burning Desire for Success:

When Desires can cause suffer, How does Napoleon Hill says that,”Burning Desires are the key to Riches” The Word Rich is used in connection with success and not money.

Connection between Desires and Control:

  • If External factors control you and when you try to extract happiness by external factors, Desires can cause sufferings.
  • People who don’t react to external events can take charge of their life and can have better control

The Burning Desire is all about internal focus and to satisfy the mental image or the dream and not the 5 Sense Organs.

Napoleon Hill words should be inferred as- Burning Desire is about Becoming and not wanting.


Love and Understanding

There is always a talk between Love and Understanding as below:

“People Love because of Mis-Understanding and then get seperated because of Understanding”

Understanding is an Intelligence

Love is an Feeling.

Scenerio: Men initially express his feelings and later on starts to question.

 

In Order for a Man to have better relationship with Woman, he has to Love her more and never try to understand her.

The Idea is when you are trying to understand you are using your intelligence and it fades away your emotions.

The Woman loves Emotions and they would love back if you give the emotion.

 

 

 

Rich Man- Poor Man

Rich Man : I have 4 Green Houses and 1 Red Hotel and I also have infinite returns to my bank account from my assets. What do you have?

Poor Man: I have only one son. His Girl friend is your daughter.

 

Purpose of Life

What is the Purpose of Life?

The Ultimate Purpose of Life is not to have any Purpose.

 

There are 3 Motives which we Live:

1. We Live for the Body

2. We Live for the Mind

3. We Live for the Soul

 

In Olden Days, most of the People used only the body. They used to break stones, pull richsaws.

In Short both men and women they did manual work.

The Use of Mind and Soul were denied or were used less.

 

Now in Today, most of the people use the Mind such as logic for computer programming,designing a drug or thinking how to manage other people. The Problem of Health is more  even though the medical facilities are high.

The Body and the Soul were denied or were used less.

 

There are so called saints who had gone away from family or to some mountains to live for the Soul.

Some of them are claimed to be gods and some claim themselves to be gods or say they have superior power.

They have denied the Body and the Mind.

 

The One who is trying to seek a purpose would deny the other.

Scar in Life

The Facial Scar was disturbing a lot. It was a feeling that the confidence was lost and what to do in Life. A thought raised such that Only if the scar fades away, I could live a Life and the confidence would come back.

I went to the Doctor and his words further disturbed me, He said,” You cannot attend any interviews”. When I went out to my Home I was disturbed the most when anyone passing in the road came and asked me,”what is that in your face and How it happened”. In my college, my class mates felt sorry for me and it created a deep sadness within me.

Every Night I had tears in my eyes and every morning I was terrified to look myself in the mirror. I dont want to look myself sad all the time. I knew my face was looking ugly and the Outside scar had created me a deep scar within my Life.

I started to cover my face with a piece of scarf to cover the scar. I started to notice other people and found that they were not noticing me. I walked straight to my seat in college and removed the scarf slowly in the class so that nobody noticed me.

As days passed by I started a relationship with a girl and found that my confidence level had started to increase in exponential manner. Whenever I talked with her I was not wearing the scarf and I always thought she would ask me about the scar in the face. Sometimes I thought why such a beautiful girl is talking to me who is so ugly.

It was the time I started not to wear the scarf anymore and I walked all the way with confidence. My class members were stunned to see the girl talking to me. They asked me, “You are not looking good now and How is that she is talking to me?”  I really doesn’t know the answer to their question but I found that my answers to confidence came from her.

 

Greatest Gift

The Greatest Gift you can give someone is your time,

because when you are giving someone your time,

You are giving them a portion of your Life

that you can never get back.

Indian Humanic Railway System

Indian Railway System is not Robotic; it’s Humanic!!

Local Trains which are supposed to arrive at 10:40AM may arrive any time between 10:30AM to 10:50AM.
It motivates the people to be in time before 10mins and everyone is happy when the train arrives at 10:40AM time.

Track Crossing to reach the opposite platform is mostly preferred by people since its easy and also quick.
The Train driver usually have a watch when nearing station and blew the horn to alert the crossing people.

People also take their cycles alone with them in train. For Instance, people from Avadi take their cycle in Train Luggage Compartment and reach Perambur to drive their cycle to their work place. People who bought new Bike from Chennai also use Luggage Compartment to take home.

Cycle and Bike Stands are near to Railway and Bus stations and help people to park their vehicles. People leave their Vehicles during the morning and take Home evening after their working shift gets over. People also have their Monthly pass issued from the Cycle Stand Owners.

There are different class of travel which includes Air Conditioned Sleeper, Air Conditioned Setter, Second Class and Unreserved.The Unreserved Class usually have Full Utilization of Space. There is a long queue awaiting at 9:00PM for the 10:00PM Train.

The Train is bought slowly backwards to the platform from station shed around 9:30PM.
Its always thrill to get into the slowing moving train and to catch the seat. There are fights, quarrels and shouting when the whole mass enters into the Unreserved Compartment. Slowly the scene gets calm as the train leaves the station around 10:00PM. People sleep under the seat, above the luggage shelf and anywhere if a space is available.
It is so enjoyable to travel with thrill and excitement.
