State of Equilibrium

A mind shaped by new ideas, experiences, wisdom, perspectives or by new understandings cannot back to its previous state if all of these makes perfect sense with the thinking of a man. It’s all about attaining a state of equilibrium in the mind, and once it is attained a mind cannot go back to its previous state.

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.

The World of Imagination

The world of Imagination, by Vikas Sharma ( Expand The Horizon )The home you’re living in, the clothes you’re wearing, the cell phone you’re using, the computer you’re have, the music you listen to or any kind of art, and more and more and more, are all somehow somewhat linked to the imagination. I want to share some my thoughts on imagination, so here’s something about imagination from my perspective.

What is imagination? Some may say it is the ability to create pictures in our mind but does it really limited to merely creating pictures in our mind? I think no, it is not only limited to creating pictures in the mind. We, the humans can imagine a lot more than just creating pictures in our mind. We can imagine sounds, taste, smell, emotions, a physical sensation or a feeling. Yes! We can imagine all this, you might have noticed it and we all have our own different world of imagination, our imagination is subjective. For some people, it is easier to visualize a picture in their mind, for some it is easier to imagine a sound, and for others it easier to imagine a feeling and other things. Imagination makes it possible to experience a whole world inside a mind, and mentally it gives us the ability to look at any situation from a different point of views. Imagination strengthens our creative abilities when we know how to work with it, when we know how to use the power of imagination. We all use it, whether consciously or unconsciously, in most of our daily affairs. For instance, when you a plan a trip to somewhere you must have imagined something about the trip in your mind, or when you read some kind of story you must have imagined something in your mind of that story.

Now the question is, can we really turn our imagination into really, if yes then how? Yes! Of course we can turn our imagination into reality, you might have noticed it in your to day to day life, we do it many times. To turn imagination into reality just examine whether the things you have imagined are really possible to achieve in any way, if it is possible somehow then try to experience it as if it is real even before you haven’t tried to turn it into a physical reality. Now make some calculations in your mind, how you executed your imagination to turn it into reality and how you felt when you visualize it as a physical reality. Ask yourself some questions and try to find out the answers as this might help you to find out a way to turn your imagination into reality. Imagination can play a significant role in achieving our objectives and goals if we have a strong grip on the art of imagination, if we realize its power and know how to use it. Try to execute concepts in your mind until it works for you and when you realize it worked then bring it out, try it out. Sometimes, imagination can even help us to avoid collisions and mishaps too.

Now here’s an interesting question that whether a human imagination is infinite? I think no, human imagination is not infinite, our imagination is limited; it is the combination in which we can imagine things are probably infinite. We can imagine uncountable things in our imagination but there are things which are outside of our imagination. We imagine things based on our experience, our knowledge, our imagination is linked with the things we have experienced, things we have heard, seen, felt or smelled. So, our imagination is limited because there can be lots of things which we can’t imagine, it is the combination in which we can imagine is infinite. In the end I would like to say, be silly sometimes and try to play with imagination, and remember in the end it is the self-confidence, understanding, ideas, knowledge and continuous action which will transforms your imagination into a reality.

Lots of love,

Phase of Transition

Sometimes most of us go through a phase, the phase of transition in which you change from the old to the new one, the phase of transition because of your awakening, situations, new perspective, or because of some other experiences. In between the transition from the old to the new there is a gap and that gap is called the void. When you are in this void you will feel like a little or more confused and you can’t figure out things clearly. In your journey to cross this void, you create a new person of yourself, the better person than you used to be in the past. Just be honest to yourself in this journey of crossing the void, don’t give up easily and keep moving ahead.

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.
