Dreams into Reality

Different people have completely opposite, and sometimes tangentially off the beaten path notions about such dreams.

If you actually HAVE some, however, your “opinion” is likely to change.

An average person dreams three to five times per night. Some dreams are more detailed than the other, this is due the REM and NREM stages of sleep. This is normal.

Some people just have to believe in something (not that I’m criticizing). Their beliefs help them get through the day. Dreams come in handy for such people.

Dreams could be beneficial and harmful. Say for instance, I dreamt I aced my exams and I woke up believing it, it could give me the confidence I need to stop fidgeting at the sight of the question papers. In this case it’s helpful but say I dreamt I studded my foot and in reality I ended up doing just that, I could choose to call myself clumsy and pay scrupulous attention to the road or blame the dream.

Dreams are reality. It’s not like the moment we close our eyes reality disappears and we become “unreal” and the events of our dreams don’t happen.

Waking life is reality. It is all reality. So why wouldn’t it make sense for reality to flow from one moment to the next? Even from a dream moment to a waking moment?

Perhaps you are more integrated than most. Some people keep so many secrets from themselves that these things only surface in dreams and never in waking life. Perhaps you are more in touch with the whole of your life and therefore events flow from unconscious to consciousness more fluidly for you.

Some dreams turn real because you manifested them. When you manifest something your unconscious mind starts showing you opportunities to fulfill the same. Dreams are just the gateway. If you have a strong desire to achieve something your mind will continuously find ways to reach closer to your goal.

Personally I believe dreams do come true, however in some cases, do we subconsciously make our premonitions come true?

If you dream you were at the zoo, and later someone says what do you want to do?

Would going to the zoo be a premonition, or did you subconsciously make it happen?

It’s already in your subconscious, and it constantly communicates with the conscious mind. Is that a coincidence, or is it a premonition, or do we at times, make our premonitions come true?

Or, is it all of the above?

When I was a kid, this used to happen to me a lot. It still happens from time to time, but not as much as it used to. I was skeptical that there wasn’t something else going on.

Precognition becomes understandable once we realize that time doesn’t flow: it is our consciousness that moves through time.

The usual concept of time in which the past is no longer there, the future is not yet and the present only exists is nonsensical because the present has no duration: what I said a split second ago is in the past and what I’ll say next is in the future… So where is the present? It’s just a line without thickness separating the past from the future. A line without thickness is only a concept, just like an axis (an axis is not a shaft), it is not a real thing, it doesn’t exist. Therefore, the usual way of seeing time flowing should lead to the logical conclusion that nothing exists — which is absurd!

In the dream states we all venture out of our bodies -the soul- and explore the various future dramas and probabilities. In the dream state we work out reality before it happens.

Dreams are mental work and play combined, psychic and emotional reach creative dramas. They also involve you in the most productive of enterprises as you begin to play with versions of events that are being considered for physical actualization, as on personal level you “view” the probable events which you family, organization, community and country will actualized.

In conclusion, I say your dreams only motivate you to do whatever it is you do. Our beliefs could build or ruin us.

The Importance of “Little c” Everyday Creativity

“The explorer owns all the insights, all the magic that comes from looking.”

Why is creativity important in everyday life?

Simply put, it is because it makes life infinitely interesting and fulfilling. Creativity is a way of living life that embraces originality and makes unique connections between seemingly disparate ideas. Creativity is about living life as a journey into seeing and communicating the extraordinariness of the simplest, most every day acts.

We often think about creativity as making something, but in fact the root meaning of the word means ‘to grow’. When we are creative we feel as if the world and all that is in it is vibrantly alive. Creativity’s by-products are some of the major achievements of civilization-from the invention of the wheel to Mozart’s sonatas.

Human beings are essentially born creative-from infancy to find innovative ways to negotiate life. The most creative people find ways around obstacles because they see them not just as roadblocks but also as opportunities. Creativity expands our perceptions and along with expanded perceptions come new ways of problem solving-from making an exquisite meal when you don’t know how to cook to painting an extraordinary landscape when you are living in a freezing attic and can’t afford a full box of paints.

If you don’t consider yourself creative, it’s because you’re thinking about creativity in the wrong way. Creativity is not an all-or-nothing characteristic, quality or skill. It’s not something you’ve got and others don’t, or vice versa. We’re all inherently creative: We synthesize information, make connections, and make choices in life that reflect a personal style and point of view.

The problem is that many of us share common misconceptions of what creativity is and how it manifests. However, when we start to explore the different levels of creativity we’re able to gain a better understanding.

What is fascinating is that the focus on creativity is often on the ‘Big C’ creativity – those innovative ideas that change the world, or win the Nobel Peace prize. Those are rare.

Did you know there is also something called ‘little c’ Creativity?

Basically, this is defined as everyday creativity, a process in which you may do every day and not realize it. It’s those small ideas and “ah-ha” moments that enrich and enhance our lives.

Little c creativity is the creativity that may be stimulated from your daily interactions in your personal and professional environment, the conversations you have, the sights you see, the people you meet, the big and small problems you solve on a daily basis.

There are many ways to help cultivate creativity and creative problem solving in your personal and professional life.

Studies have shown that kids who are allowed unstructured play time to invent, imagine, and create their play spaces are more creative. Similarly, for adults, reduced stress as a result of playing can lead to more ideas, enhanced creativity, and increased innovation.

“Exploration happens best by accident, not by following a schedule.”

Allowing yourself to get out into nature in particular can help reawaken your curiosity. Outdoors, away from things experts have already explained, the slightly thoughtful person willing to look around carefully for a few minutes, to scrutinize things about which he or she knows nothing in particular, begins to be aware, to notice, to explore.

Because we live in such a complicated, fast-paced world, creativity is often hindered by the time constraints of others, as well as our own. So is it really any surprise that the best way to find creative inspiration and motivation in everyday life is to let everything go for a bit, just getting away from all of the “noise” around us?

It shouldn’t come as a big surprise. If you haven’t noticed already, the best creative inspirations strike when they are least expected. For example, when you cram to finish a project of any type, the resulting product will almost always be less than what you expected it to be. But when you have a project that has no real time restraints, you’ll discover that inspiration will often strike and what you come up with will be much better than you could have ever imagined.

Creativity works best when it is not sought after. The best way to be inspired, or get motivated, is to let creativity flow to you naturally. And the best way to let creativity come to you naturally is to take a break and just let things go for a bit.

To let things go, you need to stop whatever it is you are doing, find a nice, quiet place where you won’t be bothered, turn off your cellphone, sit down, and stop thinking about everything that has been on your mind, just for five minutes. Five minutes without thinking about your job, without thinking about school, not worrying about family or friends. Take five minutes and just relax.

Creative inspiration may not hit you immediately, but if you take just five minutes out of everyday to relax and let your mind wander aimlessly, you’ll find that creative inspiration won’t just hit you eventually, you’ll naturally begin to find ways to fuel your creativity without taking a break from everyday life.

Not only can you easily find creativity by getting away from routine daily thoughts, when you look at the grand scheme of things, 5 minutes out of everyday isn’t that much time. If you take five minutes out of everyday for the next year just to relax and let your mind wander in search of creativity, you’ll still have 5,24,123 minutes left of the year to worry about everything else in your life.


What was my experience writing and publishing my books? What was it about, how long did it take to write and publish, and what were some of my best and worst experiences?

These all questions are coming everywhere on every social media platform I am upto.

My first book took me 8 weeks for the first draft, of around 60,000 words. I was 21. I’d been planning to write it for around 6 months, so when I sat down to work, the words fell onto the page.

I’m uncomfortable using the word “best” on a list — in part because I am just one person whose tastes are subjective. More so, to me it implies that I’ve watched every month that came out in 2020 and can therefore rank them like brands of peanut butter (which seem more finite). I didn’t read them all, or even close — I wish my life made that possible.

I was a full time student, so I had to fit my writing into late nights and weekends. The whole time I had this sense that I was achieving something great.

I slaved over my laptop til 3, 4, 5am, most nights, counting the barriers as they fell; 10,000 words, 20,000 words…

And then I was done. And I felt… empty. After the excitement of the challenge, suddenly being left with no goal was massively deflating. I wasn’t exactly expecting ticker-tape parades and awards for finishing, but I was sure I should probably feel more proud of myself, more excited.

At 21, when your peers are out doing vastly more social and interesting things than writing a poetry book , it’s difficult to relate. People didn’t want to hear about the book, or they’d ask to read it and then not bother.

Too young at the time — too young, at least, to comprehend just how much work and planning actually went into the writing of a book (my idea of writing a book was simply splattering a series of clever phrases onto a MS-Word document and hoping they made sense).

The people who did read it gave great, constructive feedback for the most part, and I definitely got the sense that there was good stuff in there, but I could never quite get past the feeling that it was a giant piece of shit.

After my first two rounds of submissions went unheeded by literary agents, I put it in a drawer and forgot about it. About 2 relaxing months later, if I had gotten back about 30 replies, 28 were flat out rejections, one “maybe,” and one “if I had more time.” After each rejection, my heart sank. It was like, I imagine, falling from a particularly epic high: dreadful. I didn’t write another word for the next year.

I wallowed in self-pity and procrastination, bemoaning the fact that no one understood what I was trying to do while I sat around and didn’t work on it. Since that is pretty much the way all books are written (especially first ones), I’ll just move on to the part about publishing it.

I don’t write differently because I think it will only be on a screen and not on a page. So my first book was of poetries that I had intended to have in print (which I did—I published it as a print and e-book at the same time).

Like many authors, I got tired of waiting to hear from people and places that didn’t really seem to exist and took months to years to answer, so when I learned I could gasp self-publish it to Kindle and nook myself, I jumped on it! It took me a long time to figure out the formatting and how to create the files I needed. Using the online conversion from my .doc file was not so good back then. I felt like I banged my head against a wall for weeks trying to get it right. There was always some problem. Cover size was wrong, or the file was too big, or when I opened up the e-book to check formatting, everything would magically be screwed up. I finally got it all done in a couple of weeks, to a level of satisfaction I felt I could live with (but wasn’t really happy with) and published it.

A few months later (this was when print on demand was just becoming available) a publisher expressed strong interest in publishing a different book of mine. I was excited! It’s hard to get anyone to notice you!

The best experience about writing my first published book was the sense of accomplishment and hearing people’s reactions to the story. Of course, hearing people’s reactions was also probably one of the worst parts, too. Once you release your words into the world, they no longer become yours alone. They belong to everyone who reads them and the story’s interpreted in ways you didn’t intend.

I hope that long ramble answered something that you were looking for with your question.

When do you feel the most creative?

“The greatest happiness you can have is knowing that you do not necessarily require happiness.”

This was the question asked to me in my recent interview-


When are you at your creative peak?

That is, what time of day do ideas flow most easily for you?

What activities bring your best ideas to the surface where you can most easily gather them up?

For me, creativity comes when at the same time I am immersed in mundane activities. Others would call these “boring” activities.

I believe myself as a Dreamy ARTIST.

Creative Ideas don’t Pop -up by thinking of a NEW THING they pop-up by thinking a THINK Differently!!!!

For instance, in elementary school and high school, I would have the tendency to get restless and fidget when a teacher either droned on about a subject I was not interested in, or they droned on about a subject they weren’t completely enamored with. During these times, I developed the ability to draw as a coping mechanism for these times. Teachers would sometimes mistaken this as “not paying attention” but in truth I was paying attention. Drawing meant freeing my mind from the mundane world and exploring, at least visually, the world of my imagination.

Now the other side of this is that if I am drawing all by itself, I need something to free my mind there as well. I will use a podcast or an audiobook to help me as I work. The only time when I can’t listen to books or the radio is when I am actively thinking about creating something and not merely rendering it. For instance, I have to have complete silence when writing this answer, and also when writing fiction. I am not even really keen on having instrumental music playing when writing.

If we are talking about the most creative time of day, I would say it has to be during the night hours when the world is asleep.

When I’m doing something, then my mind wanders into how I can do it easier and quicker because it takes too long. Whatever it is, everything takes too long. Always quicker and better ways to be found.

I have written so many poems in the middle of the night that I have gotten into the habit of putting the time down after the date it was written. I either have a basic idea or just one out of the blue and either can’t get to sleep or just wake up and before I know it the idea snowballs and I either have a good poem or one I can polish in the morning.

I tend to be creative throughout the whole day. That hardest part is materializing/innovating or bringing the creative project to fruition. I try to control turning the spigot off and on for conductivity. I get really creative when I take a deep breath and go someplace with people and just tune into the zone. If you have ever heard of ‘Nadam’ this is the most amazing key to control creativity. I try to get into the creative zone when I have some good energy so I can transpose it. The most laborious thing is having a great idea come to you when you are near dead tired – you must make notes ugh. The time of day for me is usually early morning and late evening. But any chunk of time without responsibilities AND plenty of energy works for me.

I’m not a huge fan of mixing work with self-assessment – there’s too big a shift in mindset needed to critically assess your work more or less as you’re doing it. Still, keeping a log of activities can help you reflect back, perhaps in your weekly review. Working steadily on one task over an extended time is a good sign that you were in the creative zone, while rapid shifting from task to task suggests distractedness.

Balancing creativity with making data-driven decisions can be difficult– you want to try something brand new and yet you know you should build on what the data tells you is most likely to succeed. To get at the really big ideas, you have to allow creative ideas to flow without interruption. So I force myself to step back and get away from my distractions. Often it helps to get someone to talk to and use a whiteboard to try to explain, draw, erase, and draw more. In today’s world, this can feel a bit messy. But nine times out of 10 something workable will come out of it. And then it’s time to get back to the data to look for signals that can help refine and bring your idea to life.


There is such a thing as normal and we should measure ourselves against it.

“Since the human mind seeks stability and coherence above all else, we’re almost always using those observations to confirm that we’re “right” about the people we think we are. Because if we were truly honest about the comparison data we received, we’d have to rewrite all of our mental models about ourselves and the world.

The most important things in life are internal not external.

“The big question about how people behave,” says Warren Buffett, “is whether they’ve got an inner scorecard or an outer scorecard. It helps if you can be satisfied with an inner scorecard.” To make his point, Buffett often asks a simple question: Would you rather be the world’s greatest lover, but have everyone think you’re the world’s worst lover? Or would you rather be the world’s worst lover but have everyone think you’re the world’s greatest lover?

Comparing ourselves to others allows them to drive our behavior. This type of comparison is between you and someone else. Sometimes it’s about something genetic, like wishing to be taller, but more often it’s about something the other person is capable of doing that we wish we could do as well. Maybe Sally writes better reports than you, and maybe Bob has a happier relationship with his spouse than you do. Sometimes this comparison is motivating and sometimes it’s destructive.

You can be anything but you can’t be everything. When we compare ourselves to others, we’re often comparing their best features against our average ones. It’s like being right-handed and trying to play an instrument with your left hand. Not only do we naturally want to be better than them, the unconscious realization that we are not often becomes self-destructive.

Comparisons between people are a recipe for unhappiness unless you are the best in the world. Which, let’s be honest, only one person is. Not only are we unhappy but the other people are as well. They are probably comparing themselves to you—maybe you’re better at networking than they are and they’re jealous. At worst, when we compare ourselves to others we end up focusing our energy on bringing them down instead of raising ourselves up.

We’re designed to understand ourselves. This capacity for self-reflection is one of the defining characteristics of our species. It’s what makes us look up at the stars and ponder our purpose, keeps us from behaving like freshmen on spring break at the party, and pushes us to cooperate and compete with the other highly evolved apes we interact with every day.

In other words, we have a fundamental need to evaluate ourselves, and the only way to do that is in reference to something else.

And since we live in a world populated by other life forms that look and behave a lot like us, that something else becomes someone else — other people.

“But no matter what your motivation really is, at the end of the day, the buck ultimately stops with you. And that is great news.”

Which is why you’ll compare yourself to a model on the cover of Vogue or the ripped guy in your bootcamp class, rather than your internal standard of beauty or a textbook on human physiology.

When nonsocial concepts aren’t available or compelling enough for comparison — and, spoiler alert, they’re usually not — we’ll start to see how we stack up against other people.

There is one thing that you’re better at than other people: being you. This is the only game you can really win.

When you start with this mindset the world starts to look better again. No longer are you focused on where you stand relative to others. Instead, your focus and energy is placed on what you’re capable of now and how you can improve yourself.

Life becomes about being a better version of yourself. And when that happens, your effort and energy go toward upgrading your personal operating system every day, not worrying about what your coworkers are doing. You become happier, free from the shackles of false comparisons and focused on the present moment.

When what you do doesn’t meet the expectations of others, too bad. The way they look at you is the same way you were looking at them, though a distorted lens shaped by experiences and expectations. What really matters is what you think about what you do, what your standards are, what you can learn today.

That’s not an excuse to ignore thoughtful opinions—other people might give you a picture of how you fall short of being your best self. Instead, it’s a reminder to compare yourself to who you were this morning. Are you better than you were when you woke up? If not, you’ve wasted a day. It’s less about others and more about how you improve relative to who you were.

When you stop comparing between people and focus internally, you start being better at what really matters: being you. It’s simple but not easy.

The most important things in life are measured internally. Thinking about what matters to you is hard. Playing to someone else’s scoreboard is easy, that’s why a lot of people do it. But winning the wrong game is pointless and empty. You get one life. Play your own game.

Life is HAPPENING for Us.

What if life wasn’t happening to you, but happening for you?

Pain comes in so many different forms, but we’ve all experienced it at some level, in some manifestation. But we have a choice – we can continue to dwell and live in that negative emotional space, or we can acknowledge the pain as a fact, and see the good that it created in our lives. Because if you are going to blame someone for the pain they caused, then you better blame them for all the good that came out of it too. If you’re going to give them credit for everything that is so messed up, then you have to give them credit for everything that is great. Because life is not so simple – it’s not binary.

“Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

Up to a certain point in my life, I was always seeking approval and validation from everything outside of me.

I have since learned that I was not as available as I thought.

It has been my experience that everyone that crosses our path is a mirror. They have come because we have called them into our lives to show us something—to teach us how to be more of who we truly are.

Our higher selves crave these experiences and relationships, because ultimately, this journey we call life is all about finding everything we want within us rather than without. It’s about waking up.

I have learned this over many years of things not turning out the way I wanted them to, feeling as though I was a victim and life was just not fair. I felt this way until I finally got it—I finally understood that life is happening for us. Yes, for us.

When I experience rejection in my external world, it is only because there are still places within myself where I am rejecting me. This means I am still vibrating on the same frequency as rejection. As long as I reject me, I will continue to attract people and situations that reject me, because we attract the people, places, and things that are a vibrational match to ourselves.

If I’m conscious about this, I can use these experiences as opportunities to break down the fear that keeps me from fully giving and receiving my own love and love from other people.

I have the choice to sink into my truth and be available to the pain I feel; and then to use it as a tool for healing. By giving it my attention, I can then fully feel it and process it.

When we feel through our charges and allow ourselves to really have the experience, then the charge within us dissolves and no longer attracts more of itself into our lives. This can be hard to accept at first because it is much easier to blame someone else for our pain and sorrow.

But actually that is an illusion, too. In the end, it is much easier and way more productive to take full responsibility for everything that “happens to us.”

If we can live life consciously and authentically—understanding that things won’t happen to us, but rather for us—we can use everything that comes into us as experience to our benefit. We can locate all the barriers that keep us from beauty, love, abundance, intimacy, joy, and good health.

However, as I grew and evolved, I considered that the entire relationship was there for me to heal. I was meant to look my fear of rejection in the eyes and learn to love myself through it.

Rejection was the only way through these walls I’d built. It was time to feel the fear and do it anyway, for my own good.

Now, I’m not afraid of rejection because I’m not rejecting me. I can feel gratitude for it, and every other emotion I experience, because all of it is relevant—all of it is there for me to heal my wounds so I can be free.

I’m learning to love myself more as I use my life to break down the barriers within me that keep me from returning to love.

Next time you feel unappreciated, frustrated, or rejected, do yourself a favor and use them as opportunities. Put them in your box of healing tools.

Then ask yourself: how could these people, places, or things show you the barriers within yourself that keep you from experiencing all the love, peace, and joy you long for? Remember—our external world is only a reflection of our internal world.

What does your internal world look like? To change within is to change without. Much love and so much light to you all.

Nothing can change the pain that you have experienced in the past. There are things that happen in life that are tragic and unfair. There are people that come into your life that hurt you. And you may see them as awful. But they are there to serve you. They are there to help you tap into the person you truly are. They are there to help you become even greater. And they are there to help you become who you were meant to be.

We have to logically figure everything out.

If you are anything like me you can drive yourself crazy trying to figure everything out. I like to know what the effects of my actions might be.

This could be a good thing. Like deciding how to treat people. After all, what goes around comes around, right?

However, trying to figure everything out can also be a detriment. Like venturing into a new business opportunity. If you overthink things too much you can build up enough fear that you never take the leap.

Sometimes we do not know the effects of our actions until a later date. Even treating someone poorly can be used for good. It might be the one thing that person needed, at the time, to make them decide to make a change in their life.

It is believed that there is one universal mind, one source of information available to all of us. And that our individual minds are windows or facets of that one source. Our human brains are simply one instrument for us to use to access this information. However, there are simply too many data points for us to hold onto. So, trying to figure everything out is useless.

Because we have other ways of knowing besides using our intellect. We are intuitive beings. At times, we can believe in the direct revelation of the truth through a gut feeling or a hunch. There are times these ways of knowing can be expressed beautifully and without any logical understanding. And this is not some imaginary thing. Some things would never have come to be if we did not listen to our gut.

I’ve learned to trust my gut or the movements of my soul. I can’t explain what it is. It’s something bigger than the “I” I call myself. It’s a constant that is deep beneath the surface of my human self. Sometimes I sense it as a feeling of deep joy. At other times, it’s grief that presents itself. There have been times I was pulled in one direction and at other times I’ve felt a total repulsion towards something. I just feel it in my bones. I’ve learned that if I quiet myself, I can sense it. It will give me direction when I’m stuck. If I’m moving too fast, it will ask me to slow down or stop completely.

There is more to you than you can understand or explain. You are vast. You are infinite. There is a wisdom in the deepest depths of your being, and you can trust it. Stop trying to figure everything out and go out there and listen to your gut.

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do that. What the world needs is more people that have come alive.

Speed does not necessarily mean success you know. For example in planning, some strategies might take some time to crack and figure out than normal plans. If you mean this in the context of study try techniques such as using blue pen notes to retain the details in your brain more. In your spare time or travel time listen to recorded lectures and recording so you can retain it. Rather than memorize the concepts, understand the correlation of the data.

If you think of emotions here, try reading books about human behavior or trust your gut feel. If it feels right it usually does.

Complacency is sometimes the best solution to a problem. The decision is put off until you sort it out or it sorts itself out. It works for me sometimes.

Here’s an affirmation you can use:

I reveal the Truth of God in all that I do. I am guided in my steps today by a wisdom that is beyond words. I trust the Divine knowing that is revealed in the depths of my soul.

The authentically logical person, therefore, keeps his logic rooted in truth and never lets it devolve into mere verbal trickery.

Becoming a logical person is not just a matter of memorizing and applying formulas, or learning how to tell the difference between a valid and an invalid syllogism. Rather, it involves cultivating intellectual habits and skills that, though they may seem simple and obvious, are only achieved after years of struggle and education.

WHY do I explore myself in life?

Self exploration is just like exploring the sea but without oxygen.

You see, self exploration is not that easy to do sometimes,and it requires a full commitment of ranging from one hour to even for one day or go backpacking in Manali.

If you wanna do self exploration then sit in your living room or any room that’s peaceful,block out every noise.

Then play your life like a movie,from the day you were born making your biggest twist into interval and then end it to where you are now.

You will find many answers,you will find your origin,your purpose,your capabilities,your achievements,your qualities,your rights,your wrongs even what the hell is happening in your life and then you will find your solution.

Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle.

We are totally in the dark knowing self. This catapults us ready to be controlled by the brain’s offerings. So it is we are driven by a body as any animal ; mammals to be more exact. This brain operates the normal functions of this body and ALL OF ITS OFFERINGS are not more or less than that, not at all where we are located out of the body reading and writing to and then across a day and through a lifetime.

But, what is most important is to dig deep down and ask yourself who do you want to be? no what, but who? I am talking about not what your parents and teachers want, but you. I’m talking about figuring out for yourself: What makes you happy? No matter how crazy it sounds to other people.

We have so many rules in life about everything. I say break the rules. Not the law but, break the rules. It is impossible to be a maverick or a true original. If you’re two well behaved and don’t want to break the rules. You have to think outside the box that is what I believe. After all, what is the point of being on this earth? If you all want to be liked by all and avoid trouble? The only way that I have ever got any place is by breaking some of the rules.

Anything I have ever attempted, I was always willing to fail. You can’t always win, but don’t be afraid of making decisions. You can’t be paralyzed or you will never push yourself. You keep pushing because you believe in yourself and in your vision and you know it is the right thing to do and success will come. So, don’t be afraid to fail.

I mean, how many times you have heard that you can’t do this. You can’t do that or it’s never done before? Infact, I love it when someone says that non one has ever done this before. Because when I do it that means I am the first one that has done it. So, pay no attention to the people who say it can’t be done. I always listen to myself who says “yes, you can.”

I always believed no stone unturned. Mohammad Ali, one of great heroes, had a great line in the ’70s when he was asked. “How many sit ups do you do? He said, I don’t count sit-ups. I only start counting when it starts hurting. When I feel pain, that’s when I start counting. Because that’s when it really counts.”

That’s what makes you champion and that’s the way it is with everything. NO PAIN NO GAIN. And let me tell you it is important to have fun in life, ofcourse. But when you are out there partying, horsing around. Someone is out there at the same time working hard, someone is getting smarter and someone is winning. Just remember that.

But, if you want to win. There is absolutely no way around. Hard, hard work. None of my rules by the way, of success, will work unless you do. I have always figured out that there are 24 hrs in a day. you sleep 6 hrs and 18 hrs are left. Now, i know there are some of you out there that say well, wait a minute i sleep 8 hrs or 9 hrs. Well, then just sleep faster, I would recommend. Just remember, you can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in pockets.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

I wasted too much of my life not being me! I was afraid, I guess. You know how it is. You keep your head down and you hustle and hustle. Then you look up one day and wonder, “How did I get here?”

Most of us don’t know ‘how we got here’ because we’re in, what I’ll call, a Walking Coma due to the result of a lifetime of conditioning from the ‘fake’ messages assaulting and bombarding our senses, creating our perceptions and giving us perceived realities.

Then, for some, there comes that moment when you’re aware you’ve been sleeping, you wake up, even if it’s just for second to ask ‘who the fuck am I?‘ or declare ‘I have no idea who the hell I am anymore!’
Scary time? You bet.
To realise that everything you thought about you is a lie, of course it’s scary.
To have no answer though, is beyond terrifying.
To go back to sleep, no!

The writer taught me the pointlessness of wishing for a different past and the futility of worrying about all of the frightening futures over which I had no control.

I read one book called ” Into the magic shop” by James R Doty casually 8 months ago (maybe you know this which is a best-seller according to the NY Times). It’s literally special to me. This book has taught me how to mindfulness meditation, how to tame my own thinking through some tricks given by each chapter. As a result, I’ve gained attention as well as the way to look deeply into my heart, to know what I actually want in my life, who I want to be and how I can achieve those things step-by-step. Trust me, you’ll comprehend yourself if you try meditation. Let’s spend at least 10–15m each morning doing this, this absolutely changes the way you live and during meditation, you can listen to some podcard about meditation or everything else to gain more concentration. Let me give you one of motivational quotes from this book cheering me up: “Each of us has a story and each of the stories there are parts that are painful. We can choose, at any moment, to see the people right in front of us for who they are and who they can be”.

Find One Thought you believe about this. Got it? Notice belief gives “I feel I am right.” React/back at your thinking WRONG CONTINUING AWARE OF WRONG to notice rejecting our thinking frees feeling to escape the trap moving to take the lead expanding to bring more considerations, the road to intelligence beyond from deep memory storing wisdom to the future as insight to situations ahead. This should bring within understanding automatic inclinations to correct decisions headed to a successful run across the next moment, through the day to day across a long and beautiful run as a self loving life.

Don’t bother yourself by over thinking and keep calm. Introspection and self reflection are two important things which helps you to explore your world.

Exploring self is not easy but that shouldn’t discourage you from doing so because it is very important for your life. Human beings nowadays tend to be in a self-denial mode.

It would not be wrong to say that you can live your life only after you know the self.

That doesn’t mean that you should post it on whatsapp, facebook or Instagram but at least you should know yourself.

Being true to self is rare now.

There is not one way to explore self. It’s very personal and unique for each and everyone. So the method is to each their own.

Different strokes for different folks.

Live your truth even when it scares you, speak the truth even when it scares you. Do not pretend. Be receptive to the truth.”

Do you mean becoming more realistic about your expectations? You can always shape your own outlook in life by hanging around people with the certain outlook you aspire to. In this case, choose people who have a track record of being realistic about things and probably will continue to do so.

Manage your expectations especially when it comes to people.Never expect to be understood.

Life is not fair and you should never expect people to be as kind to you as you are to them. Be kind and be sincere in your ways not because you seek to appear that way but because it is who you are. Whether or not people reciprocate don’t get involved with their behaviour yet this doesn’t mean be a doormat.

When you find yourself caught up in situations ask yourself “Who is this person I am becoming and do I like him/her, when did this matter begin,what can I do to improve this situation & what led me to this point, where did I go wrong? “

Stop expecting too much and you will start being realistic. But keep in mind something before doing this. Expecting in life is not a crime. If you expect something then have the courage to get it. You expect a thing when you want it. The degree of expectation may vary.

Expecting less doesn’t mean that you should stop expecting. Another principle of life you remember, your deeds decide your destiny. So when you want to have or happen something be sure to work for it. Either first you put effort then expect or put your efforts to the level of expectation. You will surely meet your expectations. We all see how much light the sun spreads to us everyday meanwhile we forget to see the other side of the coin i.e. how much it has burned itself to spread that amount of light.

When you shift your focus on your deeds or say efforts then automatically you start to expect less and become more realistic as compared to earlier because you start becoming aware of your efforts and when you become aware of your effort then certainly you could imagine the result (which will be very close to the reality).

I’m no life expert but I’ve gathered a realistic life begins and ends with self, the day you CHOOSE to be dishonest with self is the day you’ll be voluntarily opting to self-betray.

See things for what they are and people for who they are.

When you have failed at something, be honest in acknowledging it and see where you can improve. Do not sugarcoat when dealing with yourself, always strive to improve.

The reality of the malnourished Ethiopian child, and that of the wealthy, westernised business man, will be completely different. Which one is reality? To each their reality is the environment and surroundings in which they experience life. Neither are right nor wrong. Reality is what you experience and how you experience it.

Acknowledge your weaknesses as much as you do your strengths , change what you can and accept what you can’t change.

In my mind being realistic means to see things as they are. I’m not saying there are goals that can not be achieved, but reaching goals is not about goals itself but about one who is pursuing it.

So, the real question is can you see things as they are, respect qualities others have, and fight in the ring of life and win. If one doesn’t see things as they are, how can one find a way to get those things he/she wants and doesn’t have?

Artists don’t have to be realistic. Their own drive is fantasy, creativity, seeing the world differently and showing their view to others. But if you are a Lawyer, banker, business man or plain man, you need to see what is and then make it in what you want it to be and that requires hard work. Most important detail, it is highly doable, just be determined enough, persistent enough and you’ll succeed. Success is not cheap!

I believe realistic is authenticity. Seeing things for exactly as they are and not so much how we want to perceive a situation. I think it is being honest and true, first and foremost to yourselves;as well as others. It is finding faults in yourself and we all know that the first step is to take notice right?

Part of being realistic would have to include trying new things. One thing is for certain you don’t know what you don’t know.! Just because you think you won’t like something doesn’t mean you won’t. Try it, embrace it, still even if you can attest and confirm its an activity, food. Item, or even a person that you’re not fond of. Experience it, embrace opportunity,embark on growth.

“Being realistic is the most common path to mediocrity”

I Have an example to share which I read on Google .

A young woman who really needed to feel that she was helping others and her goal was to become a doctor. However, as she started university, she realized that she could not bear to accumulate the debt that completing her medical degree would cost. She considered revising her goal to become a doctor but not revising her goal to help people in a professional way. So, her desire to be a doctor was reinterpreted to help others by becoming a speech therapist.

What did she accomplish? For one thing, her goal destination was altered but her need wasn’t. Secondly, she was being realistic. She knew she really couldn’t afford the accumulated debt on her pathway to becoming a doctor, but she could afford to become a speech therapist.

So,being realistic is never bad,stand out to be different and be the change you want to see in others,nobody is perfect but being you could give you sense of satisfaction and peace that you did your best ; Stop worrying about what people will going to think about you because those hands who claps on your success are also the same hands who criticize on your failures

“Duniya ka sabse bada rog,Kya kahenge Log”

The logic behind 2025

“When sixty times sixty years (i.e. 3600 years) and three quarter Yugas had elapsed, twenty-three years had then passed since by birth.”

It is evident that the original Yuga Cycle was based on the Saptarsi Calendar. It was of 12,000 years duration, composed of four Yugas of equal duration of 2,700 years each, separated by transitional periods of 300 years. The complete Yuga Cycle of 24,000 years was composed of an ascending and descending Yuga cycle, which followed each other for eternity like the cycles of day and night.

There were no poor and no rich; there was no need to labor, because all that men required was obtained by the power of will; the chief virtue was the abandonment of all worldly desires. The Krita Yuga (Satya Yuga) was without disease; there was no lessening with the years; there was no hatred or vanity, or evil thought; no sorrow, no fear. All mankind could attain to supreme blessedness.

According to the Surya Siddhanta, Kali Yuga began at midnight (00:00) on 18 February 3102 BCE. This is also considered the date on which Lord Krishna left the earth to return to Vaikuntha. This information is placed at the temple of Bhalka, the place of this incident.

According to the astronomer and mathematician Aryabhatta the Kali Yuga started in 3102 BCE. He finished his book “Aryabhatiyam” in 499 CE, in which he gives the exact year of the beginning of Kali Yuga. He writes that he wrote the book in the “year 3600 of the Kali Age” at the age of 23. As it was the 3600th year of the Kali Age when he was 23 years old, and given that Aryabhatta was born in 476 CE, the beginning of the Kali Yuga would come to (3600 – (476 + 23) + 1 (As only one year elapses between 1 BCE and 1 CE) = ) 3102 BCE

According to KD Abhyankar, the starting point of Kaliyuga is an extremely rare planetary alignment, which is depicted in the Mohenjo-Daro seals. Going by this alignment the year 3102 BCE is slightly off. The actual date for this alignment is February 7 of 3104 BCE. There is also sufficient proof to believe that Vrdhha Garga knew of precession at least by 500 BCE. Garga had calculated the rate of precession to within 30% of what the modern scholars estimate.

“A series of cataclysmic events for a period of a few hundred years, which brings about a total or near-total collapse of civilizations across the world. In all the cases, however, we find that civilization restarts immediately after the period of destruction.

Most interpreters of Vedic scriptures, as Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Goswami and his disciple Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada believe that Earth is currently in Kali Yuga and lasts 432,000 years. Other authors, such as Swami Sri Yukteswar and Paramhansa Yogananda, believe that it is now an ascending Dvapara Yuga, indicating levels of cycles within each major Yuga period as each being a development, the smaller cycles within cycles eventually leading to full development of the qualities of the ages. The Kali Yuga is thought by some authors to last 6480 years although other duration have been proposed.

Hindus believe that human civilization degenerates spiritually during the Kali Yuga, which is referred to as the Dark Age because in it people are as far away as possible from God. Hinduism often symbolically represents morality as an Indian bull. In Satya Yuga, the first stage of development, the bull has four legs, but in each age morality is reduced by one quarter. By the age of Kali, morality is reduced to only a quarter of that of the golden age, so that the bull of Dharma has only one leg.

“It is the lowest instincts that stimulate the men of the Kali Yuga, they prefer false ideas, they do not hesitate to persecute the sages, desire torments them, neglect, illness, hunger, the fear spread.”

The different regions of the countries will oppose each other. The sacred books will no longer be respected. Men will not have morals, and will be irritable and sectarian. False doctrines and misleading writings spread in the age of Kali. Rare are virtuous women. Promiscuity extends. The stability and balance of castes and the ages of life disappear everywhere. The earth produces almost nothing in some places and produces a lot in others. The powerful take over public goods and stop protecting the people. Wise persons of low birth are honored as if they were Brahmans and deliver to people who are not worthy of it the dangerous secrets of the sciences.

Teachers are debased by selling their knowledge. Many take refuge in a wandering life. At the end of the Yuga, the number of women increases and the number of men decreases. During the Age of Kali, the Great God, Shiva, the dark blue and red peacemaker, will be revealed to all under a disguise to restore justice. Those who go to him will be saved. At the end of the Yuga, the animals become violent, the number of cows decreases. Good men withdraw from public life. Market cooked foods are sold in the market square. Also the sacraments and religion are sold. The rain is erratic. The merchants are dishonest.

People who beg or seek employment are becoming more numerous. Nobody stops using rude language, nobody keeps their word, everyone is envious. People without morals preach virtue to others. Censorship reigns. Criminal associations are formed in cities and towns. The water and the fruits will be lacking. Men will lose the sense of values. They will have belly aches and will have their hair in disarray. At the end of the Yuga, people will be born whose life expectancy will not reach sixteen.Nobody will live longer than the normal duration of life, which is one hundred years. The rites will perish in the hands of men without virtues. People who practice errant rites will spread everywhere. Unskilled people will study the sacred texts and will be self-proclaimed experts. Men will kill each other and also kill children, women and cows. The wise will be condemned to death. However, some will reach perfection in a very short time.

In all honesty there is wide controversy, between Astrologers, about the time the Kali Yuga will end, and even some Astronomers have jumped into the fray!

Some say it already started on 26th July 2014 at 3:11:00 p.m., others not until 2,025, and many others into different dates, as far as thousands of years into the future!

And frankly it will take too many pages to explain, and it will not be of interest to those who do not have a background in Astrology, or Astronomy, if you are interested in those details you can find your way through those arguments by navigating to such websites.

Some propose the date of 2025, and the object of my post, it’s to call attention to this not new, but coming our way Millenarianism phenomena, as we speak, too many argue we are in the Aquarius age, some deny it, or that if the Maya end cycle on 2012 year, had, or has any meaning?

The timeline also indicates that the ascending Kali Yuga, which is the current epoch in which we are living, will end in 2025 CE. The full manifestation of the next Yuga – the ascending Dwapara – will take place in 2325 CE, after a transitional period of 300 years. The ascending Dwapara Yuga will then be followed by two more Yugas: the ascending Treta Yuga and the ascending Satya Yuga, which will complete the 12,000 year ascending cycle.’

Controversy about cycles are based on hypothetical theories, based on Sacred scriptures interpretations, so therefore, also subjective, to multiple interpretations, however also believe what some sages said regarding in what age we live.

‘Kali Yuga is for hypocrites and fools. They always live in it. The wise and the truthful always live in Satya Yuga.’

‘Try to lead a truthful life. Time cannot change us unless we try to change ourselves. Avoid foolish speculations and imaginations. Develop right discrimination and be wise. Then you always live in Satya Yuga.’
