Every time I log on to Facebook or Instagram, I am a little saddened by the large amount of insecurities at display. One of the issues that a lot of young people grapple with, and I have been frequently asked about is – body image issues. Body shaming has become a commonly accepted norm these days – and there is no dearth of both – the guilty and the victim. Too many people struggle with overcoming body image issues- height, complexion, nose, hair, proportion, voice and many else. As a motivational speaker, I write this an attempt to steal the thunder from vanity in the name of body shaming because of genetics and bring some real clarity on the real things that really matter.
Recently my newsfeed on Twitter, FB and other places suddenly is full of Modis, Rahuls & Kejris. And it is kind of becoming quite boring. Sick and even obnoxious too at times.
The shocker is that a Punjabi guy who himself is not able to govern even basics elements of his own life has a huge opinion about Governments in Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, India and even USA. And that does not stop here. He then vehemently defends his favorite leader everywhere. Fights around to prove that what he thinks is right. Clear cut problem of erroneous priority settings and hyper-drugged mind about his idol (political party). Lots of free time and mind too. Read More
See it is simple! One needs to kill whatever is not working right for oneself. If you delay doing this murder; you shall only be delaying becoming the best version of your own-self.
At 40 my time, stamina and willpower is limited. I have deep realized that only a smart, skillful management of my attention can improve the choicest aspects of my Life. Being on autopilot- not giving much thought to what I am doing or talking randomly i.e. loose talking will not help (frenetic shallowness has not helped me or anyone ever). Read More
Before you begin reading this, I have a confession to make. I may have indulged in some overthinking before writing this article. I always do, for all my blog posts. And then I fight it. So that’s what this blogpost is about: How to Stop Overthinking & finding ways that actually work. Because let’s face it – sending the brain on a hyperactive overdrive in the wrong direction never helped anyone.
‘How to meditate, increase mindfulness & find God’ is not my Blog or writing. My intellect is too small to even begin to answer this most profound question like the saints who walked this country did. They gave to this world the real meaning of spirituality and the precise understanding of mindfulness, who is God and how to find God through meditation. This blog is their message, their words, their writing. I feel immensely blessed to be their very small instrument as I amplify their message further. This blog is also my very personal spiritual story: the story of my learning on the most beautiful road of spirituality (Not religion). This blog is long but a comprehensive guide to the above question (I promise). You will need 2-3 readings to fully absorb everything that’s written here. So, be slow and thorough to get the most out of it.
Age 20 to 30 yrs was all about Over-Confidence, Impressing people by over doing things, Flirting, Randomness, Eating everything served in the Lunch Buffet 🙂 etc.
The next 10 i.e. age 30-40 yrs in summary were all about Confidence, Work-Alcoholism (Did some 80+ Events every single year), Wealth Building, Power, Kursi Ki Peti baandhiye & then whatever time remained after doing these- on Spirituality, Helping People, Mom, Ritika (wife) & Atharv (my son)- not in the same order. All this while, I was figuring out some really important life lessons as I lived my life forward but understood it backwards. Wish I had known some of them sooner.
