We are merely temporary residents on the planet Earth. We are all just visitors to this place, to this time, to this planet. We are just experiencing this whole universe and the world individually as well as collectively. We are experiencing our surroundings and all other things through our senses, through our mind, and through any other mean like something which could be a human creation too. We are nothing more than a speck of dust in the universe, even the planet on which we live and thrive is nothing more than a speck of dust in the universe. We are all just a result of billions of billion years of evolution. Our evolution and as well as our capability to create things which we want, desire and need is the reason why our world keeps on changing with time, the time which indeed is a concept. We are all…

Leh (Ladakh) – Snapshot from my Travels # Part 6

Leh (Ladakh) is one of the most spectacular places one can visit, the place with its wonderful scenic beauty and beautiful monasteries, at an altitude of 3524 metres. If you are adventure lover and love to travel in the hills then it cannot get better anywhere other than this place on earth. It’s a cold desert, you will see less of green, but this is atoned by the beautiful valleys, mountains, different landscape and the hue, color of the place changes with the weather and time of the day; from Kashmir to Leh you get to see all different colors of nature and it’s just beyond expressing in words.

Here’s some more snapshots from my recent travels, images captured in Leh (Ladakh):

Food for Thought #2

The most common problem that we’re having with gender equality is that despite whatever popular beliefs we might have we are not created equal. Men and women each have their own genetic inclinations. Understanding the opposite genders inclinations and behaviors is actually much more fundamental to achieving an androgynous balance because it is usually much more evident of everything that we’ve been taught we are not. It’s been the goal of many religions and spiritual teachings to achieve this androgynous state of mind perhaps the most famous of these illustrations is the yin yang symbol. One of the major things that it represents is the balance of masculine and feminine energies. It would be too much of a coincidence that these ideas somehow got lost when they are some of the most fundamental ideas to our balance and unity. It’s become quite evident that on a global scale there is a lack of unity in humanity. It is evident in the way that war is continuously waged on our mother earth and in the way that we ravage a physical earth for an imaginary economy.

It is not until the last tree has fallen and the last River has run dry that we will realize we cannot eat and drink money. We are killing ourselves and we seem to be okay enough with that to keep feeding the same system that is doing this. We as a human race lack understanding. More than gender, sex, creed, religion, race, age, or anything else we could fathom as a difference we lack understanding of the universe. Such understanding comes only through you. Understanding that you are not a man or a woman or Chinese or Indian, you’re not Christian or Muslim or Buddhist or Hindu because understanding the universe is understanding that nobody knows. Fundamentally, everything is make believe. The farther you reach in your spiritual life, the more evident the duality of intellect will become as your stupidity will be accepted in the absence of ego. The only truth in gender inequality is that we accept it because our own family and friends subject us to it and we become blind to the society created by civilization through generations and ever so easily do we blame each other and no longer are able to find the root of the injustice and smite it where it lurks. And that is the most essential cornerstone of slavery. A human being is happy serving a purpose, whether that purpose be shallow or fabricated is irrelevant because the human mind creates reality by believing and he who controls what the human believes controls the reality that the human lives in. It is ingenious that those who control these perceptions leave themselves in oblivion.

We are merely temporary residents on the planet Earth. We are all just visitors to this place, to this time, to this planet. We are just experiencing this whole universe and the world individually as well as collectively. We are experiencing our surroundings and all other things through our senses, through our mind, and through any other mean like something which could be a human creation too. We are nothing more than a speck of dust in the universe, even the planet on which we live and thrive is nothing more than a speck of dust in the universe. We are all just a result of billions of billion years of evolution. Our evolution and as well as our capability to create things which we want, desire and need is the reason why our world keeps on changing with time, the time which indeed is a concept. We are all observers, learners, explorers, creators and of course, all these traits are naturally within us, we just have to realize it.

Our mind believes what it find acceptable or what it find understandable and therefore we may easily get caught up in illusions. It is enlightening to realize difference between illusion and reality. When we pull ourselves away from illusions, we feel and see the world differently, we feel the eternity, we feel the interconnection and with all this our physical and mental barriers get redefined. A clear perception which is detached from illusion opens up a new door to a new and clearer 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 all just a result of the evolution of the universe, we are star dust and will always remain a part of this giant universe in the form atoms even after our visit to this place, to the planet earth, we are all one mind and no reason to fight on the base of differences, even differences are illusion.

In the end, I would like to say – imagine if people all over the world are being taught this as a child and are being taught to think freely and taught to understand other without judgmental mind. Let’s not forget to live respectfully to yourself and others. Let 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 reflect are just like vibrations which can be sensed by anyone of us or by anyone who has existence.

Peace and love ~ Vikas Sharma

I was just wondering… (repost)

Vikas Sharma - Change by actsJust publishing one of my old post again!

So here I go, have a good read:

I was just wondering how one can live his life to the fullest and this made me to put this blog in front of you all. There are many things which we can do to live our life to the fullest, why settle for anything less if you deserve something better? We all deserve the best and to get the best out of our life, we all should keep developing ourselves. Try to find pleasure in everything around you, it’s a beautiful world if you know there to look. Love every bit of your life to the fullest whether it is pleasant or not as it belongs to you, somehow you are the man who is responsible for creating all these moment around you! Always relish in the little moments because these little moments make your life complete.  Spending time with your family and friends, snuggling under warm covers on a rainy day, ice cream on a hot day, a kiss with your loved one, a walk by the park, gentle breeze on your face, sometimes getting drenched in the rain, quiet alone time, calling someone after a long time; feel all these little moments and if possible, try new things. What’s something you would normally not do? Get out of your comfort zone, try something different. It can be something simple like instantly planning to visit a place with your friends, taking a new route, any surprise to your friends or to your family members, trying a new food item which you have never tried, picking up a new interest or hobby. There are many things; you can try something bigger, like studying a different field, traveling to a place you have never thought to visit, exploring any unknown place. You know, there is a lot to explore; there is a lot to learn and experience.

 

As Steve Jobs said ~ “Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

 

                                     Life is too short to do anything else you don’t like. Sometimes, situation doesn’t favor us to do the things we love to do but never give up easily. Try to do the things you love because who knows maybe someday you will get what you want! We all have certain things in our life which gives us fulfillment and happiness; try to spend time on those things. Never stop learning from your surroundings, there is something to learn from everything you see, hear and experience. This includes everything like your mistakes, misconceptions or anything you did wrong in your past, i mean if any! Learn from all these mishaps and surely it will make you a better person than you were in past. I think, nobody is perfect and practice can’t make anybody perfect but practice is one of the things which make you better and better. So never stop practicing to become a better person. There is one more thing which can help you to become a better person and that is criticism. Try to learn from criticism and be open to criticism but don’t be affected by it. Criticism is meant to help you to be a better person. There are many things which can contribute to our betterment. And if there’s anything you don’t like about someone, say it to him in the face or otherwise, don’t say it at all. Backbiting is not a nice thing to do. We are human beings and there are lots of things which we face in our day to day life. Try to understand and feel another person’s feelings, try to be empathetic. If everyone only sees life from his own perspective, we’ll forever be close-minded and insular. See things from others’ shoes. Be a compassionate person, show compassion and kindness to everyone around you.

 

As said by Dalai Lama ~ “Compassion is something really worthwhile. It is not just a religious or spiritual subject, not a matter of ideology. It is not a luxury, it is a necessity. Compassion and love are precious things in life. They are not complicated: they are simple, but difficult to practice.”

 

                                   I must want to say this that without creativity and art earth would be just dull. Fall into any kind of art. Art can make our life more bearable, art is a way to grow our soul and art can teach you many things about the life. Creativity is one of those things which make us superior than other living beings on our planet. Creativity makes our life different. So focus on creation, think about what you can bring to the world, and try to create it! There will be lots of people who might appreciate your creativity and art. Bring changes in yourself, we live in a world where we have so many things to do, there are so many taboos in our society, there are many things we want to change in the world. As in simple words, be the change you want to see in the world. The only person you can change is yourself, stop expecting others to behave in a certain way. Rather than expecting that others around you change, focus on changing yourself.

 

                                Let the people who’ve touched you know of your gratitude towards them, so express gratitude. If you don’t tell them, they’ll never know; expressing gratitude makes a positive connection. Let loose and have fun, hanging out with your friends or family, sing at the top of your lungs, dance in the rain, watching movie with your beloved ones, sometimes breaking your limits, Getting into nature and feel it, smile more. Are you reading this with a straight face? Smile and have fun. It’s only through being the best we can live our life to the fullest and if life is hard then live it hard and enjoy it to the fullest. Love yourself; you are the person who will live with you for the rest of your whole life. Treasure and love yourself!  Love others; be grateful for all the people around you because they help you to grow. They enrich your life experience. At last I want to say, Love life, living a life is fascinating experience; and I believe our life should be composed of these five things: Live, Explore, Learn, Create and Share.

Harnessing Wireless Signals

It’s not a new thing that radio frequency signals can be used as both a power source and a communication medium, and moreover, the problem of wireless power has been in research since the time of Tesla. There have been perpetual researches on this topic since many years. As radio frequency signals are both the power source and the communication medium, therefore, we can re-purpose radio frequency signals that are already around us into both a source of power and a communication medium.

This technology can be useful in some of the way but it has some pitfalls too. Like it depends on radio frequency signal, so apparently it is useless at the places where there is no radio frequency signal, its effect on the other wireless system or on those from which it draws power or on anything other, will be useless in the Faraday cage like places. That is the one side, now how can it help the humans: well! It can be useful in number of ways; can be used in smart devices like phones, watches, sensors and any other wearable electronic device. This technology can be embedded into smartphones (or into other battery dependent devices) and when the battery dies, the phone could still be used for communication by using radio frequency signals. In a nutshell, this technology has ample of things to offer.

I recently read an article which says a team of researchers from the University of Washington is working on this kind of technology. They have created a wireless technology which they describe as Ambient Backscatter, which takes advantage of the TV and cellular transmissions that already surround us around the clock. It transforms existing wireless signals into both a source of power and a communication medium. The researchers built small, battery-free devices with antennas that can detect, harness and reflect a TV signal, which then is picked up by other similar devices. Using ambient backscatter, these devices can interact with users and communicate with each other without using batteries. They exchange information by reflecting or absorbing pre-existing radio signals.

There is always someone working on something somewhere around the earth, and as there are endless possibilities, so there can be endless creation which can be created by connecting the right pieces in the right place!

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.

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.
