Pause. See. Restart.

Arise. Awake. Stop not until thy goal is achieved.

And what after that? You get lost?

Take a pause in whatever you are doing. Even stop reading the post for a minute.

O.K.

Now read.

You see when you take a conscious pause in whatever you are doing, you put efforts to see what’s happening in your surroundings and you come back to present world with your senses active.

We are driven by our subconscious in most of our daily activities. We don’t put a lot of efforts to sit in the couch and enjoy our favorite TV show. While browsing through internet most of the stuff we read or glance through, is not processed consciously.

We have been running a race in circle. Without an end line, we keep running in the laps, but even faster. We have no where to go.

So rather instead, don’t run blindly. Scoring a perfect GPA might not be something that you want.

Whatever you are running after in life 

  • Take a P.A.U.S.E
  • See. Observe. Record. Process.
  • Restart or Resume

You don’t see the complete picture!

Observation is the basic skill we acquire during childhood.

Interpretation is what we learn over time.

Conclusion is what we gain with acquaintance and by learning about the world and people.

But do we learn well ?

Are we lacking something in one of our basic skills ?

Here we go !

One of my friend says – He is surprised by the coincidence and the repetition of the coincidence that he now believes, that whenever his roommate sits down to eat, he gets a call on his mobile from his fiancee. How sweet !😄

As per him, everytime when they are having breakfast or dinner or for that matter having some snacks during an odd hour on a weekend or grabbing a sweet, there goes the ring on his roommates phone.

Now he says that his fiancee loves him so much that everytime she calls on such times. How lovely !💖 Sure indeed she might love him very much.

But he is missing a point here.

The number of times his roommate gets a call from his fiancee. The number of hours they are on call or calling each other. The number of times he is not with his roommate when she calls him. The number of times they are not talking to each other. The number of times he has food with his roommate. The timings when he has food.

The simple equation that they both talk to each other everytime during the same hours. Everytime she is just thinking about him and she calls him every once in a while she is free. His daily schedule that she is aware of and the free hours he can talk with her after office, coincides with the dinner times or before office hours.

Also the fact that he and his roommate prefer to eat together!

You see the observation is looking at some event in a particular fashion and arriving to a conclusion that it is a fact!

The interesting thing and something that should help to arrive to a conclusion is when – someone calls on an odd hour on an odd day after many weeks and gets bumped into finding the other person having food every single time ! Now that’s coincidence! May be love!

Serendipity is an underrated topic.

Affection is ignored when it is not seeked.

You observe. You validate. You cross-question. You affirm. You arrive to a conclusion. You then be free to allow yourself to reiterate the entire process and be open enough to arrive at an entirely new conclusion.

May your senses guide you!

Why good people suffer more ! Or Do they ?

How can you not be serious about your own life?

Morality is a less discussed subject.

If God was there, why do good people have to suffer. Why do bad people get away easily.

Well then some say, that the bad is not dealt until it has surpassed the threshold. Because the path of unjust and unfair means leads to destruction and everyone seems to avoid it, even the Gods. While on the other hand the path of being good and doing good leads to a world of harmony and the greater good, giving you a leverage of happiness here and chances of afterlife without any troubles. Hence you must be tested and put through all the tough situations to ensure you deserve what you are about to be given. And those that you see having a peaceful and happy life, getting everything that they deserve, may be it’s their afterlife and they are reaping the benefits of the good they did back then.

And for you, may be you are given a second chance to prove your worth or for that matter your hundredth chance, before being sent down to the channel of unknown.

But you may argue – what if there was no afterlife ! What if we are all dupped psychologically to believe and live in a hope of afterlife.

Then so be it. Consider there isn’t any. Because there is none who has come back from there and those who can go pass lives, wouldn’t be able to tell us. Even if they did tell us, we would consider such people cynical.

So let us consider that there is no afterlife. Then what must propel you to be good and do good. What should be your motivating factor.

None.

Sun goes down every evening to come up next morning

Within the single life span, we experience lots of ups and down. We see things going out of our control and we gaining control of life. It is matter of time, when you feel like a gladiator and another time when you feel like the weakest person on the Earth. You don’t need a second life or afterlife to know who you are and what happens in your life guided by what you do and what you believe.

Your choices and your actions will guide what happens of you. So if you are suffering for being good, then you must know that it is your choice and you intend to be good because that is your inherent nature.
