Within Us!

Sukhna Lake

Few days back, I have been on the shores of this lake, the Sukhna lake. It’s not as wild as compared to the others where I’ve been to, and it doesn’t has anything much special in the sense of beauties, uniqueness or awesomeness as compared to the others where I’ve been to. The place was just a common one with nothing much special but I had a quiet pleasurable and awesome evening on its shore. To my understanding and according to my experience, I’ve felt and realized we don’t have to find some unique place to rest our my mind, we don’t have to search a place where we can explore the things around us or within us, it’s more about building a bond with the place, it’s more about connecting ourselves with the place, and it’s less about uniqueness of a place. A man can go to the most beautiful places, to the most different or awesome places, to the most adventurous or wild places but if a man doesn’t know the art of creating a bond with the things then it’s all a waste to wander from one place to the other. We won’t enjoy the things until we don’t have the bonds with the things, or until we don’t feel the bonds, or until we don’t know the art of creating the bonds with the things. It’s first about the things within us then it about the others. It’s first about our vision then about the view. It’s first about our senses then about the awesomeness. Feeling should come up from the inside first, from the mind, from the heart, from body of a man.

Keep Rocking Guys~ Vikas Sharma

Imagine!

We are merely temporary residents on the planet earth. We are all just visitors to this place, to this planet. We are just experiencing the world, our surrounding and all the things by our senses, by our mind, and through any other mean which is eventually the human creation. We are nothing more than a speck of dust in the universe, even the planet on which we live is nothing more than a speck of dust in the universe. We are just the result of billions of billion years of evolution. Evolution and our capability to create the things which we want or need or which we can create is reason why our world keeps on changing with the time, time which indeed is a concept. We are all observers, learners, explorers, creators and of course, all these traits are in our nature, in humans nature.
Our mind believes what it find acceptable or what it find understandable and therefore we may easily get caught up in illusions. It is beautiful to realize about how everything around is an illusion, and when we pull ourselves away from the illusion, we feel the world differently, we feel the eternity, we feel the interconnection and with all this our physical and mental barriers gets redefined. Clear perceptions which is detached from the illusion opens up a new door for the new perspective. It’s just amazing to feel the world the way it is, it is just beautiful to realize the truth about ourselves, who really we are! We are the result of evolution of the universe, and will always remain a part of it in the form atoms after our visit to the planet earth.
In the end, I would like to say – imagine if people all over the world were thought this as a child. Let’s not forget to live respectfully of yourself and others. Yes! let the peace, love and respect prevail all over the world, and which indeed depends on each one of us. Our actions, thoughts, or all the things which we create or contribute is just like a vibration which can be sensed by anyone of us, or by anyone which has existence.

Peace And Mind

Serenity is in the mind of a man. When you realize you are no separate from the universe, when you realize you are capable of moving the mountains with the power of your brain and with the will of your heart, when you realize you can create anything beautiful, creative or innovative with the power of your senses and with the power of your brain then you will find yourself in the state of equilibrium with all the things. Yes, one might be in chaos of the world and yet can maintain perfect serenity of mind. One doesn’t have to go to the forest and spend his precious moments in just wondering over there to find peace. Peace is in the mind of a man. A man who does’t have any control over his mind, a man who doesn’t know what his intuition says then wherever he may go, he will not find the peace of mind. Traveling is all about enjoying the world or enjoying the life, traveling is all about shaping one’s perspective and learning new things. Traveling is all about having adventure and new experiences. You don’t have to go into the wild just to find out peace. Peace is in the mind of a man.

Crust Over The Eyes!

It just feels amazing, the feel of being stable by mind, the feel of being in the state of equipoise when once we rub the crust from our eyes and we realize the reality. Enlightenment is just behind that crust, the crust which has been formed due to the result of all the concepts, concepts which has been created by us for our own convenience or concepts which has been created by us on the base of our experiences and understandings. We live up our whole life on the base of some concepts or within the horizons of some concepts, and generally we don’t realize that concepts are just our own creation and perhaps there can be something else beyond those concepts.

There is a difference between concept and reality, and it’s good to realize the difference. It just feels liberating to know the difference between the concept and reality because by knowing the difference our horizons get expanded to another level or to a different level. All we have to do is just to keep our minds open and we will realize the things which are beyond some of the concepts. We are all part of this amazingly beautiful universe, let’s not get lost in the web of concepts as we are already lost creatures in the universe!

Absolute Certainty

Absolutality - absolute certainty - by Vikas SharmaI think there is no absolute freedom, there is no absolute truth, and there is no deep reality. It is like the more freedom we have, the more we learn and the more we live our desired life; the more truth we know, the more awake and aware we become; and the more reality we realize, the less ignorance will prevail around or inside us. For me, the whole concept of the absolutality is just something of an enigma, and perhaps, it is not possible to achieve an absolute certainty of freedom, truth and reality as none of them exists in the state of an absolute certainty. In spite of all this, the state of absolutality is always imagined as something beautiful, it always looks alluring and pure, and therefore we crave for it which is great indeed as our every step towards this unreachable absolutality makes us a better human, a better person. Hence, it is logically pretty good to pursue this unreachable non-existent absolute certainty of freedom, truth and reality.

Breathe In, Breathe Out

Vikas Sharma - Expand The Horizon(Breathe in, Breathe out) Are you going through some problematic things and wondering how to get your life back on tracks? I think it all depends on us how to get our life back on tracks. Ups and down are part of life, I’ve seen ups and down in my life and we all go through it, don’t we? Sometimes, things are inevitable, shit happens and I know it can be difficult to believe sometimes but everything happens for a reason, there is always something behind everything. The reasons which slide you out of tracks can be anything; sometimes we don’t realize why the things are getting worse, or why the things are not going smooth. Sometimes, you feel that you’re trudging a path and you don’t have any idea where are you heading. Remember, the only person who can understand your deepest, actual and all problems, or situations is “You”. It’s you who have to identify your things, why something is happening to you and then try to solve it.

Take your time and relax yourself then try to figure out why things are happening like this? Are you wondering what to do as there are too many ideas and you can’t make decision on one, or are you wondering what to do as you don’t have any single idea to work on? Are you confused, overwhelmed, or lost, and you don’t know what to do? Do you have many dreams and don’t know how to turn them into reality? Are you a huge procrastinator, or too lazy to act on your plans? Are you confused about your goals, dreams and passions? Do you feel like you have no idea what you’re going to do with your life? Do you feel like you’re devastated? Do you feel like your world is tumbling down around you and nothing seems to be staying at its rightful place? Are you afraid of what people will say about you? Are you controlled by negativity which is deep-rooted in your psyche because of past failures, or old wounds? Are you sad and have no real friends in life to share your things? Do you want to change everything about yourself, but there are so many things wrong in your life and you don’t know where to begin? Do you feel like you have no social life? Do you feel there is no one to motivate and support you? Sometimes, do you feel like crying out loud? Do you fear the failure before even beginning things? Sometimes, do you think “Why me, why!”?

There are many more questions, or problematic things. There are reasons behind everything and if something is going wrong then we should try to discover the reason behind it, and then solve it with all the efforts if possible. Of course, it doesn’t take an hour to get your life back on tracks but if we try to recognize problems and then searching the solutions to solve it can help a lot. Sometimes there are things which can’t be fixed after trying all efforts, in that case just leave it behind and move on. We all have to change ourselves for better life and living, and if we want to change our life and living then we have to change our thinking and we have to do the things we are not doing, or doing the same things in a different manner. If you feel like there is nobody to support or motivate you, then just stand against the mirror and look at yourself, it’s “You” the only person who knows what actually you need and what’s your real potential, you can achieve your goals, don’t worry much about support; just be open for it if you get it from anyone, from anywhere. Never let people put you down rather try to encourage people around you as when you encourage someone it adds positivity in your life too and it doesn’t really matters whether the people really affected with your encouragement stuff or not, it still adds positivity in your life. Never have an attitude like “I don’t give a shit to anything”. There are things we have to take care of, don’t you think that? Remember, we are what we make of ourselves, so don’t get affected by others wrong judgmental behaviors, living the life you want will bring happiness to you and don’t be afraid of failure. Just believe in yourself and there’s no need to be afraid of failure. If you don’t succeed then try again, just keep trying on your things. Sometimes, it takes a lot of investment of time and energy to get things done.

I believe in creating beauty in everything. We should try to make something beautiful out of every bad situation, we can do it, it’s not impossible just a little or more difficult. If you can, then be a part of any kind of any activity, it can help to release the energy which you have kept inside unused; and try to be a stress less as much as you can. Stress can affect our productivity levels as a stressed mind can’t work up to its actual potential, and it can distort our thinking too. I know it’s not easy to keep ourselves totally isolated or away from mental stress but we can try to keep ourselves stress free as much as possible. Try to learn from other people, ask someone you admire how they got where they are today, and ask your elder or anyone whom you believe. Listening and learning about how they faced their problems or difficulties throughout their life, and maintained grace throughout it all can help us knowing about the things more, it can help us in our personal endeavors too.

Sometimes, we all need to do is just relax and take a break; let yourself recharge, breathe in, breathe out, feed yourself some positivity and keep your head up. Don’t give up easily, identify your strengths and new possibilities, be open to new impressions, and broader your vision as problems can’t be solved with too narrow vision. Restore your perspective in order that you can see more clearly and don’t always stick to routines. It doesn’t matter what order you do the things when you know what you need to do or what you have to do on any given day. Sometimes it’s good to do things which are not part of your routine, sometimes it’s good to get out of daily routines and schedules. So have fun and be crazy sometimes, do the things which draw a smile on your face. Sometimes, we fail to see that what’s needed is in front of our eyes and therefore, sometimes it’s good to turn down the noise and listen to what’s arising from your deepest self. We all are into this journey of life and we slip and slide on our way. What keeps us going is the music, music of the life, music of the universe. Keep rhyming yourself with the music of the universe.

One of the reasons for chaos in the world is we divide ourselves on the base of some things and forget that we are humans first. There is no separation, and hence awakening is certainly due. Try to remove elements of negativity from your life, or things you don’t want to do, or just try to convert negativity into something beautiful. Clean your house from top to bottom and throw away anything unnecessary or out-dated, always keep a free space for new things by removing unnecessary and out-dated things. Learn from past mistakes. Usually, we make a lot of mistakes during our lifetime. Just keep learning from your mistakes, gain wisdom and knowledge from it, and avoid its repetition. Just don’t let your past mishaps to affect your present, and it’s not bad to release your emotions. There is always a healthy and unhealthy side to every emotion. We were taught that adults are not supposed to cry. No one can decide who can cry or who can’t just on the base of age. Sometimes, it’s good to just sit down and have a good hard cry. This is healthy for everyone, and it can make us feel lighter. Moreover, we are human beings with feelings and emotions, so it’s alright to cry out loud. Always have confidence in yourself; speak and act with confidence. Are you able to stand by what you do and say? If not, it may be time to re-examine your own things, or words.

Don’t put off difficult conversations, deal with such problems mindfully. Talk to strangers, reconnect with old friends and with relatives who live far away, and with the people you miss. Go out into the Nature. Nature has an ability to help calm our mind; it gives us new perspective, and clears our thoughts. Take a walk in the woods, climb a mountain, or just get into the nature and do some trekking, hiking, camping at any level of difficulty; it gives a sense of pride, accomplishment and relaxation. Take up a new interest or hobby; you never know where a simple interest or hobby can lead you in life. So, it’s always good to spend some time on the activities you like, so whenever possible try to spend some time on the activities you enjoy such as dancing, biking, playing any music instrument, singing, drawing, writing, photography, or anything you like. Go to a beach where you can sit, or walk on its shore and listen to the waves crashing against the shore, get up and dance to one of your favorite tunes, listen to your favorite music, exercise regularly and eat well, there are many things which can refresh your mind and energy.

Most of us has experienced the moment when we say “Yes” to something, when we know it’s not right for us but still we do it. As soon as say yes, we hear a voice that screams “No, No!” inside us but somehow another part of us kicks in and our mind overrules the wisdom of our body and we find ourselves on a path we never intended. If ever you find yourself in such a situation then remember the only person who knows you took a wrong turn is “You” and only you can decide when to get back on your tracks and how. Admit as quickly as possible, you made a choice that led you to the wrong path and after that decide how you’re going to get back on track. It’s not the end until you give up and it’s good to talk about your problems with your close friends, or with your family, or with any one whom you can trust and believe as this can help you to feel lighter. We all face some challenges in our life and it’s with us how to reply to these challenges. Sometimes, it seems like every single thing is going wrong and sometimes, you wonder why everybody else gets some help and you can’t seem to get any. Sometimes, some things are out of our control, sometimes you don’t get the desired results, sometimes you miss the opportunity of something good, friends move, thousands of people apply for the same job, relationships end, people lies and cheats, and more, and more, and more. Remember, shit happens and all these things happen to many other people every day in this whole world, you’re not alone. It’s up to you; get back on tracks with life. Sometimes, it can take time, and it can be difficult but not impossible.

Watch Me Flying High Above The Cliffs

Watch me flying high above the cliffs and live your life with a smile on your face.

Well again a few words I would like to share with all of you and this time it’s on suffering, the mental suffering. It’s just what I think about mental suffering and personally this post is not intended for anyone in any sense as these are just views, nothing more than that. If you want to read it then go ahead and in any case if you wish then you can add your comments or thoughts after reading this post.

Memories are wonderful if we don’t get stuck in the past. Dreams are always good if we don’t get trapped up in the web of dream world. Expectations makes us feel lighter if we don’t rely much on them. Without memories, without dreams and without expectations, we will be as good as dead. If we get stuck in the past with memories, if we get trapped in the dream world, if we mostly reply on expectations then there is always a very strong chance that we’ll encounter with suffering. Having desires and dreams are always good, it makes us feel alive, it makes us excited about the life, it makes us doing something to fulfill them but making a hills of desires and dreams of which we don’t even have any idea or we don’t even know where and how to climb up and how to get up on it, can lead to suffering. Relying on exceptions at most of time is like becoming a slave of hopes and in other way it can lead to suffering. Getting stuck in the past with memories will never let you to live your present. Life is tough and it is supposed to be like that as most of the time easy and simple things are ignored or low valued by the world.

Now, if someone is suffering what does that mean? It means something has went wrong with that person, with its past, desires, dreams or expectations. No one suffers by a chance, there is always something behind it. We are humans, things can go wrong, things can get messed up and sometimes life may become unbearable and directionless. If you ever reach at this point in your life, just sit at a place where you feel comfortable and just try to enlighten yourself with your own consciousness. You have brain in your head and there is always something to learn from everything you are facing and I believe there is a lot a person can learn when s/he suffers, learn from it then overcome it. You just have to catch up the wisdom which is there in the suffering and then move away from it with a better person than you used to be in the past, the things you learn while you suffer, keep them in your mind and heart; that wisdom will be your best guide through out the life. Sometimes, it’s the suffering which gives a birth to something beautiful and powerful things, we just have to realize that we are the owner of our life, we are the fire which can blow up the hurdles, we have the power to shout out loud; so stand up against the mirror and just say it to yourself – watch me soaring and watch me flying high above the cliffs.

Over The Hills And Far Away!

Just imagine how it feels to be on the mountains and breathing cool healthy fresh air and all you can feel is the peaceful environment all around you.

At your farthest sight all you can see is mountains covered with dense Pine and Deodar forests, snow-clad mountain ranges visible at some distance, numerous streams all over the places, attractive peaceful surroundings, clouds floating over the hills and the feel of cool gentle breeze on your face.

It’s just wonderful to spend some time in a town full of life and yet peaceful, isn’t it? haha! I always feel there is something in this part of the world which can’t be explained in the words, something which can’t be expressed with the word, something which one can only feel if they spend some time in such relaxing  and refreshing places.

I was just thinking…

I was just thinking, what if someday you look back and think why you stopped walking on that path and realizing you could have done it exceptionally good or getting a feeling like you could have been recognized for your courage, for your creation or for your work if you didn’t have stopped doing that particular thing without giving it a deserving fight till the end. I was just thinking about all these things and this led me to write this post.

All I think is that if you’re good in something then don’t keep that thing inside you, take it out and share it. Let the world know that you’ve something, something which belongs to you, something which is your creation or something which is beautiful in all the way. So, if you’re planning to try something or planning to work on something, something which you want to do or which you like to do then try it all the way, from top to the bottom, from starting to the end. Try each bit of that thing, go through the entire thing, look at every corner of it, search for the hidden things in it, go beyond the illusions, scratch the concepts and do it the way you like. If you’re happy with it and if it brings satisfaction to you then it’s really worth to do. There are billions of people on our planet and lots of them are going through the same phase as you’re going through. So, think out of the box and don’t get distracted by obstacles. Sometimes, you may feel like losing your mind but that’s just a phase and it will not last for a long time if you are on a right lane.

Sometimes, getting things done could mean freezing on an unknown land, it could mean wondering in the darkness, it could mean not eating on time for some weeks, it could mean working alone, it could mean disappointments, it could mean mockery, it could mean feeling lost, it could mean thinking against the thinking of majority, it could mean facing odds and evens. So, instead of getting lost in the feeling of disappointments, just think that all these odd things which are coming in your way are a test of your endurance. If you really want to do it, then despite all the rejection in the worst, you will do it and it will be better than anything else you can imagine. It’s not easy to get what we dreamed of, there lies a fight which we have to do. I think if you’re fighting a battle of your dreams with a right side of the force then definitely that battle is worth to fight. Moreover, it’s my conception and I don’t know how much you’ll agree with me in all these things but I believe there lies a fight which has to be won by someone, there lies a struggle which is worth to do if you are on a right track, there lies a mountain which has to be moved by someone to find out the treasure behind it 🙂

Music paints pictures

Music paints pictures.Music, in my opinion is a way to express our feelings, our thoughts, an idea in a beautiful way or a way to paint our imagination with words. Music is a beautiful art, music paints pictures, music can serve many purpose. When you listen to a song, it takes you to a totally different place every time, you live in the moment of that song for awhile. Music is the universal language of emotion, it’s a way for the artist and for its listener to understand something which they might not be able to understand otherwise. But it’s subjective, i mean sometimes a song can mean everything to someone and at the same time the same song could mean nothing to someone else. I believe in the power of music and sometimes, music is the only thing to make sense of things. Listening to deep songs with deep lyrics meaning really can make you think about the our world, memories, people around us and many things. Music is an escape and there’s always a song that describes how you feel, i wish i had my own soundtrack to play for whatever i am doing, like it plays out loud but no one knows where it’s coming from. hahaha!  Music is just a wonderful thing. At last, it’s an entertainment! Yes, music is a leisure activity after all that but that’s really not as important as all the other things about it 😉
