Change

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

~Alan Watts

Change helps you in discovering yourself.

One of the most overwhelming concept in philosophy has been Change.

What is change in the first place?

Basically, it is a difference in the state of anything and anyone on various situations. I feel it is just the transformation or development from time to time.

So, is it really necessary?

Well, it is.

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
~Wayne Dyer

Why is Change necessary?

This is one thought that runs throughout my mind most of the time and when i come to think of it, it is actually simple.

Nature, itself, is constantly changing. Like the wind, it changes directions, we as a human. The “highly developed species” on the planet has to make sure they are in tune with the nature.

Everyday, since the dawn of time, we have made millions of mistakes. Well, as a human we are bound to making mistakes, but that doesn’t mean we should give up. If our ancestors had given up, there wouldn’t have been any sign of humans after the “Ice Age”.

We learned to adopt the nature and slowly tried to abuse it for our own good. Well, the result we are seeing today is not surprising. We are now aware of the mistakes we did, but that doesn’t mean we give up now. We should learn to come together and fight it.

Similarly, life may knock you down many times, and sometimes it will knock you down so hard, you will have lost the courage to get back up. But then is when you’ll need yourself the most. Break your own limits.

You might have done so many wrong things in life and you asked none, you feared none, you did it for your sake. You may not be aware of it but you forced yourself to do it even though someone else asked you do it. For once, if you could give a chance for yourself to change and listen to yourself to do good stuff, that is ultimately good for you and ignore the people who try to speak against it.

Your soul, it has seen many things, it has experienced many things. Giving it the same thing will lose the ultimate purpose of life. Exploring new things. Discovering new places. Experiencing the life like never before.

It may be in case of your job, education or business too. Following a single strategy throughout the lifetime may not be much helpful. Bringing changes can get you pumped up or can excite you.

To be honest, change is unavoidable. You are born, it is natural that you will grow. You may give up on your life, but your life will never give up on you! Because, it is the death, starvation, failure are the things we fear from. You want to fear from something, fear from fear. It is the most toxic thing there ever is. Trust yourself. Trust your dreams, your instincts. That ultimate change can get you inner peace. Because, if you won’t change, the world around you definitely will. The most things that stay adamant, end up destroying themselves the most. It is the river that is stagnant and the most insects breed there. Whereas, ocean is forever flowing, look it’s beauty!

To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.

~Winston Churchill

Being an Artist

Being an artist is such a bore, people say. But is it?

image

No, not at all. We artists have our own world and there is a reason for it and it is simple. It’s the people around us. Today there are many artists struggling to make a name out there.
Why are they struggling?
There are tons of new pieces of art that is created everyday. Among them, few are famous. The rest, their art just fades away in no time.
Why does that happen?
As I said, it’s the company they keep.
To all those artists,
You are amazing. Yes, you are no matter what others tell you so. You are a messenger from the universe. You carry a message and that message comes from your soul to your masterpiece.
You can’t give up just because your friends, family, relatives or even a neighbour tells it is a waste of time.
Being an introvert myself, I’ve faced a lot. There are only a handful of friends who want to see my writing. The rest, they don’t bother with what I do. They have their own world.
I don’t have the rights to judge their lives, but reality, it’s just an illusion. So, why go after something that isn’t even real. Find your true friends and well, make sure you abandon the rest. We introverts are a paradox. We may love your company but we wouldn’t want to be with you for a longer period of time. Although we remain aloof, we can be the best friend to a person who really connects with us, but why? Because, we have no one except ourselves. So, a piece of advice to the friends of such introverts. Please, encourage their art, spread it. Get them in your group but make sure there isn’t much crowd because they get bored easily there. Help them feel what it means to be alive. But, make sure you have them some space, they’d appreciate it.
Being an extrovert is just as tough. An extrovert can’t stay at the same place for a longer period of time. Their adventure is the key to their art. They want to explore, discover places which are beautiful not only to look at but also to feel. They portray the best piece from the soul that was there, not the eyes that saw it.
It’s really difficult in this age to just go on an adventure. We have commitments. We have responsibilities. We have duties. I really don’t know what to say but the best thing would be do what is right. Previously, I mentioned, reality is an illusion, if you really don’t bother about it and just want to explore then, go ahead, only your soul has the right to stop you. But let me get this straight, don’t lose your respect and character during this.
People who are friends with such people, please find joy in what they do, they’ll love it. Adventure is an amazing sport for them, so, head out with them for a journey for a day or two. You’ll learn a lot since life is all about the journey. But, trust them. Trust their instincts if they are confident about it.

I really don’t know, how I covered psychology in this, but being an artist is really tough. But that’s the key. If art were easy, it would not be art. On the contrary, art is easy if you trust your soul. Let it flow. Journey is going to be tough, don’t give up. Start it and everything will fall into place.

If you want to be loved, then do what sells. If you want to be a legend, do what your soul tells.

I hope you learned something from this. Do let me know what your views are on this in the comment section below. I’ll be back with another inspiring post, until then LIVE yOUR LIFE.

P.S.: You can also read one of my previous post where I conducted a survey what would happen if there wasn’t art and why it is necessary from the link below:
Life without Art!

Choice

image

Hey everyone! It’s definitely been a long time since my last post, I had to choose between various topics to write on and when I pondered on it, I realised it is a choice that make the difference between who I am and who I actually want to be.

“Life is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice.”
~ Ka

Let me get this straight, your life is almost dependent on the choices you make solely. Why stress it out on it then? Because, most of the time, we tend to leave it on the so called fate or well on our family and friends. I didn’t start out this blog just because someone asked me to, I realised there are many who feel so lost, they just need one fine article that can get their life back on track. I made a choice then and there to start this blog. You made a choice reading this. You could have done anything else but there’s a reason you are here. One is because you chose to and it is not just another coincidence because secondly, you might truly end up understanding what you actually came here for.

image

A lot of people still believe life is won by luck. Well, my friend, luck favours the bold. Only when you choose to move will you be able to move. If you want to wait for a miracle, there are a lot of natural ways you could move, like earthquakes. I may be a bit harsh, but get it in your mind. If you want to get something, go and work for it.

I’ve been over it many times, there would be people who would speak behind your back all the time, why do you have to bother about them?  They are not going to feed you when you are broke.

“Even if the whole world is telling you to move. It is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, to look them in the eye and say, ‘No, you move.'”
~ Sharon Carter, Agent 13 (Captain America: Civil War)

But life does not come with a guide or map, does it? So what if the choices you made were wrong, it is not like you’ll end the time. There are worse things than your wrong choice, but believe me none of your choices are worthless. You end up learning a lot of things from the wrong choices than from the right ones.

So, don’t get used to “what to do” kind of stuff, and just figure out and follow your passion. Life will be much better when you make a choice and make sure your choice makes a difference. It’s always upto you, but sometimes, it’s better to choose wisely.

Do let me know what your views on “Choice” are in the comments section below and don’t forget to like, share this post if you liked it and be sure to subscribe if you don’t want to miss out any of our future posts.

Education vs. Passion! Why not Both!

download

Board exams are round the corner and so is the stress. One of the main reasons people take stress is because, they have been living for others. It’s time we realise this and start living for oneself.

People, these days, say they don’t get the feel to study and I keep wondering why does this happen, but to tell the truth, no one can motivate anyone to study.

Why is it so? Because, knowledge is infinite, and in fact the more you think you know, the lesser you actually know.

It is great to learn from every field, but to study, I don’t think that would be a good idea.

Coming back to the boards, we have limited our knowledge to the academic experiences but there are many things happening right now, that is not at all included in the academic system.

Why is it so? Because, this was designed many years ago for a common purpose and for common people, not for a particular person.

So, ask yourself now, what do you love? Space? Then, take a book on astronomy and read it. Because, your academic book, contains only a limited amount of information.

In reality, if you have love for something, you’ll stop at nothing to know more about that thing.

There’s this quote I read somewhere, “You are unique, just like everyone else.”

This might be funny, but it is the truth. You need to look inside to be what you want to be.

“One who looks outside, dreams. One who looks inside, awakes.” ~Carl Jung

As I mentioned earlier, I’m not here to ask you to do anything, I’m here to help you remind your true self.

“You must look within yourself to save yourself from your other self only then will your true self reveal itself.” ~Zuko

To those having their boards and to their parents, one can’t hug their marks to the grave. So smile, learn and lead. Because, there might be a dying artist in the kid who couldn’t score marks and to those guys who make a mess, only for missing a full score by a mark or two, just look through the eyes of a failure. Don’t freak out, keep calm, do what you love and please don’t compare.

Society, why do you bother about it? When you live in a place where you are offered freedom, why do you hesitate to do what you love? When you did something bad, you didn’t bother about them, then why do you think when you are doing something good? So, don’t blame them for your loss.

And finally, I conclude, I feel, people study only under two situations, either they live in a misconception or they want to achieve something.

Make sure, when you come here next time, make sure you are happy and ready to live out loud. Until then, just LIVE yOUR LIFE and Believe and chase down your passion.

You.

“You are a wonderful being. You are the reason that someone smiles. There is nothing that you cannot achieve. So, trust yourself and do what you love to.”
~Amith Chhabria.

This date, marks one year of this blog. I started this blog to bring out the best in people, but the more people I reached out to, the more I saw them running away from themselves and that’s when I realized, a person can be motivated only when they are ready.

There were many reasons behind this. Some didn’t trust themselves. Some underestimated themselves. Some were jealous of others. Some were filled with fear. Some hated themselves. Some were lost. Some were clueless and what not.

Let me be honest here, everyone in the world has been through this. No one is perfect. Doubts can be cleared. Fear can be conquered. Hate can be faded. The lost can always find a new place to live.

Life is short, but to live it short is not a good idea. If you feel that you are losing, just look around, there would be millions like you. But if you continue your path towards success, you would see a lesser crowd, all continuing their journey to be awesome and when you finally reach the top, you will feel why you had to doubt yourself all along. The reason there are less people at top is just because the rest of the crowd feel that they are unworthy of the position and never try. Some may hate the hard work, but ask any artist who loves to paint, about hard work, and you’ll know that hard work for them is a happy time because it’s their passion. They might need smart work too. If you follow your passion, your work might not seem that hard after all.

No wonder Swami Vivekananda, “You are the creator of your own destiny.”

Your life lies in your very own hands. One cannot expect the egg to hatch as soon as it is laid and it will only hatch when the creature inside is ready. Motivation works the same way. No amount of guidance will work if the person inside is not ready.

If you want help and you are not getting it, then you are not ready for it yet. You’ll get help when you are ready for it. You’ll ask for it.

If nothing is going according to your plan, then it is going according the Lord’s plan. And trust me, His plans are way more exciting than yours.

Never give up. Giving up is easy. That is why people who think they have lost everything, give up. But in reality, if you have nothing to lose, then what’s the use of giving up? That’s why winners never give up.

“Winners never quit and Quitters never win.”
~Vince Lombardi

Be mindful of your thoughts. They define you. Your thoughts may be the reason why you are what you are and may be that is why you are here. To be yourself.

If you are who you are just because someone has asked you to be what you are now, then I feel bad for you. If you really want to be something amazing, just be yourself. Be you because there is no other person in this world like you, and I know you. You are one amazing friend. You are beautiful. You are the best person I’ve connected with and you are here to win and let me tell you one thing: You have the power to be the best.

As Uncle Ben or Benjamin “Ben” Parker once said:
“With great power, comes great responsibility.”

“What it is that you have to do, and what it is that you have to be, that, your soul will tell. Who will be on your side, and who will be against you, that, the time will tell.
But who you are, and what you ought to be, that, you will tell.”
~Amith Chhabria.

Oh and yes, as the topic suggests, I dedicate this post to you, and if you still doubt yourself, just visit this page back and remember that we love you. Will be back with another electrifying post, until then, just LIVE yOUR LIFE.

“There are mysteries to the universe we were never meant to solve. But who we are and why we are here, are not among them. Those answers, we carry inside.”

GRATITUDE- The only thing that matters

“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”
~Brain Tracy
 monday-quotes-gratitude-quotes-3

Hello everyone, I hope everyone is doing fantastic.

Gratitude! When was the last time you ever said a thank you to anyone? Probably, just now or even months back or you might not remember. The reason I’m asking this question is because many have confused the term ‘gratitude’ to just saying the word ‘Thanks’ or ‘Thank you’, but that is not gratitude. Gratitude refers to the state of being thankful, when you are really grateful to any person, sometimes even the words ‘thank you’ would seem very small. It is not enough that you say the words thank you, you must feel it!

Sometimes, you might not want to show gratitude, at that time too, I encourage you to at least thank the person, because you might not know what that person has been going through in his life. A small ‘thank you’ might make them happier than you can imagine.

Gratitude is actually helpful for you. Here are few scientifically proven facts of Gratitude
1.Gratitude opens the door to more relationships.

2. Gratitude improves physical and psychological health.

3. Gratitude enhances empathy and reduces aggression.

4.Grateful people sleep better.

5.Gratitude improves self-esteem.

6.Gratitude increases mental strength.

It is stated in The Secret, “Gratitude is a powerful process for shifting your energy and bringing more of what you want into your life. Be grateful for what you already have and you will attract more good things.”

So, if you are selfish, be grateful for yourself, if you are selfless, be grateful for others. ‘Gratitude’ is the only thing that matters.

“Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.”
~Aesop

“When you are grateful, you are just thanking for everything you have, and the more you are thankful for something, you’ll end up attracting more of it!”

Crazy, isn’t it?

Complaining is just opposite of gratefulness;

“When you complain, you forget to be aware of all the blessings you have already been receiving..”

“‘Thank you’ is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.”
~Alice Walker
I would love to tell you more about gratitude, but sometimes amazing things come in small packages, don’t they?
So, I’ll be back with another amazing post, until then, as I always say, just LIVE yOUR LIFE! 🙂

Life!

I don't own this pic.
I don’t own this pic.

Hey people,
It’s been a while since I’ve written something on life, so here I am writing on a topic which is my favourite. LIFE, when I hear this word, my heart just pumps out like something. I guess, I’ve a deep connection with the word life.

 What is life, firstly? Is it a journey? Is it the beginning? Is it the end? Is it a dream? Is it a question? Is it an answer? There are many unanswered questions in the universe. Everyone will have a different answer for everything. I’m not here to give the answer… That, you’ll have to find out on your own.

 I feel, everyone is here for a reason. The reason might be anything. Neither you may know it, nor I may know about it.  That reason may be a dream, a goal, a duty, a destiny, a fate! Call it anything, but what is a dream? As I said in one of my previous posts, Dream, it is not just a word.. It’s a great world where one has all the things he/she needs!! And yes, reality is an illusion! You build your own life according to your actions and believes, in the words of Winston Churchill:

 You create your own universe as you walk along!

 So, every action you take, every step you take, must lead you a step closer in achieving your goal, but you must also believe in your work, your goal and yourself. One day, you will have achieved it, and that day you’ll look back and thank the Lord for giving you the moment in which you believed you could win!

 You may face many difficulties along the path, but that doesn’t mean you should give up. The more difficult the path is, the more beautiful, life will be.

 Okay, you have a goal and you are determined to achieve it. That’s great! But, your goal must not hurt the life of any other person in anyway. If the achievement of your goal bring happiness, peace and prosperity, then why wait? In the words of Dalai Lama:

 The purpose of our lives is to stay happy!

That’s all for now, I’ll be back with another amazing post, until then, stay tuned and Believe in your dreams and never forget to LIVE yOUR LIFE!
