We all often make a big mistake by taking our ideas and thoughts for granted, thinking that we can call it out whenever it is required but, do you really remember your thoughts? Ever wondered why we forget the great ideas that come into our mind very often?
Even recurring thoughts soon gets faded with the passage of time and the temporary thoughts are very hard to recall even after few hours. (I am talking about the important ones because countless thoughts occur in mind every day)
You will understand this, if you may try to recall the whole day happenings when you go to bed, you will be amazed to know that only a few incidents make a lasting impression on our memory and even those impressions will get erased in few more hours.
People who are involved in doing creative work like painting, writing, music composing etc can easily understand about loss of thoughts if they fail to make a note about the inspiration that flashes all of a sudden in their mind, soon it will be lost!
In an earlier post named “feeling down without any reason”, we discussed the ways to change your mood when you are feeling gloomy.
One of the ways discussed in that post was to do meditation and I would like to tell you that the best way to stay happy most of the time is to meditate every day.
All the other ways to change your mood could only give you a temporary relief from those states, but by meditating regularly you can have better control over your thoughts which will lead you to have a good mood all day long. Continue reading
To understand this we should watch our thoughts while we do something for others and find out if we are trying to impress them or trying to make them happy.
It does not matter if others think that you are “trying to impress anyone” or “trying to make anyone happy” what matters is what you think, for this let us understand this “Ego Mode” in more detail..
Your ego always wants something from outside in order to feel happy, it looks for appreciation and if it does not get what it wants, then it will make you feel bad about life.
When we do something for others without expecting anything in return then we do not need their praise or any favor to get happy because helping them was a pleasure in itself.
When we always try to get something out of what we are doing our mind gets into a continues turmoil, this will add up to our sadness and the same cycle keeps on continuing.
A person, who always wants something in return for helping others(even if it is just a “thank you”), will find it hard to help others when he gets nothing, such thoughts will make his life miserable. Continue reading
Contrary to most of the traditional philosophies, the universal law of nonresistance says that when you fight against a problem it keeps getting stronger.
We like to wrestle with the obstacles in our path and that is the only way we have ever known fight..fight..fight.. The result? Your problems become insurmountable and you lose all the energy.
I am not saying that you should stop pursuing your goals but what I am saying is to stop thinking about the problem and shift your focus towards the solution.
Breaking the door is not always the solution sometimes you have to stop and take a look at all the other possibilities, who knows? there is a chance that you might be trying to break a door that wasn’t actually locked.
Your mind is a powerful thing and it creates your reality based on the thoughts you think. So, worrying about a problem leads to a bigger problem and when you fight against your problems you kind of get into a never ending trouble that’s why C.G Jung said, “what you resist persists”.

It is now a very well known fact that visualization is one of the best ways to train your subconscious mind and to make the law of attraction to work in the desired way; the reason behind this is that on a subtle level our mind uses images for every mode of communication.
So, as we know the importance of visualization now, it is vitally important to know the 3 common creative visualization mistakes that people usually make.
By being aware of these mistakes you can make all the necessary changes in order to make it more effective. Continue reading
Earlier when I used to hear many popular figures on T.V and magazines saying that a book changed their life I used to think “How the hell can a book change someone’s life?”
Bob Proctor, who is my inspiration and one of the well-known figures in the success coaching industries today, has always mentioned in his seminars that the book “Think and Grow Rich” transformed his life.
I knew that there are some psychological effects of reading books but I never trusted that their impact in our life could be so strong that it can transform us.
Now, I have realized that they were speaking the truth and that’s why I am writing this post so that I can share what I have understood about the impact that books can cause in one’s personality. Continue reading
As I have mentioned before one of the most inspirational books I find is Raymond Holiwell’s “Working with The Law“.
The author also recommends that you should read it as much as you can and he puts this in a very beautiful manner by saying “You don’t find something that was missing in the pages before, but you find something that you never saw in yourself before”!
I am reading over and over one of the chapters of this book from last few days because it has a deep meaning and every time it gives me a new insight.
The chapter is the one that teaches us the “Universal Law of Forgiveness”, and in this chapter, the author has explained it in a very nice manner how the impressions in our consciousness could be the cause of many physical diseases. Continue reading
One of the most misunderstood universal laws is the “Law of Karma”.
Some people would limit everything in their life hiding behind the name of karma and some will strongly oppose the existence of anything like “karma”, believing that by doing so they are being courageous.
Well, the people who oppose the existence of anything like “karma” definitely have more control over their lives than those who are not willing to take the responsibility of their lives, but both types of attitude come from the lack of knowledge about the concept behind the law of karma.
Those who believe in the law of attraction could often be seen denying the existence of the law of karma because they assume that the concept of karma says that you don’t have any control over your life and everything is pre-decided, which is not at all true.
The Law of Karma has nothing to do with fatalism.
First, I was amazed when I got to know that ancient Indian yogis preferred meditating in cremation grounds and still some yogis do that.
But, now I have found that it was actually a way to freedom for them, they were using the vibrations of cremation grounds to realize the truth.
They were seeking enlightenment by meditating in an atmosphere that had the vibrations that helped them to achieve thoughtlessness.
When, here in India we think of cremation ground, we can only get thoughts of grief and despair-that is because we always forget that everyone has to die someday.
Especially,during night time these areas are very scary because it is said that lot of witchcraft stuff happens in these areas.
So,these yogis were very courageous indeed(LOL),but the reason for their choice of such place is actually the isolation from the materialistic world that cremation ground provides.
These cremation grounds actually have an energy field or atmosphere of dispassion, something that every spiritually inclined person is looking for, one can feel these vibrations at such places(near crematory or any place where funeral rites are conducted) because they represent that this journey has to end one day.

This question used to intrigue me always “what is reality?”- if you will closely analyze then you will see that the “truth” and “reality” changes from people to people. There is never one reality, we live in a world which encompasses infinite different worlds because every individual has his own “world” which is his personal “reality”.
Confusing? Well, think about this perception vs. reality example- There is a rabbit and a snake in front of a man with weapon in his hands,(and this man is a vegetarian FYI..LOL).. The reality for the snake is “the man with the weapon is a danger and it has to attack him for its survival”, the reality for the rabbit is “both snake and the man are dangerous and it has to run in order to save its life” and the reality for that person is “the snake is a danger for both rabbit and him so, he must attack it..
See, three different realities of three different beings, for the snake the world is “danger everywhere” for the rabbit the world is “dangerous at some places and beautiful somewhere else” and for that person the world is “both a mixture of danger and beauty, and he can choose the one he wants wherever he stands”.
However, I used example of different species here, but you can actually put people in the place of creatures in the example above. Snake is a representation of “people who attack others because of insecurities”, Rabbit is a representation of “people who are vulnerable and keep on running in search of safety” and the person here was representing “people who choose what is good for them and discard everything else”.
Our way of looking at things changes our reality, any spiritual knowledge will lead you to this conclusion that the world is as we see it! Continue reading
