Life is not about the Destination

Many times, when we are travelling, we become impatient if the waiting time in the airport or in the bus station becomes too long. We become frustrated and cannot wait to get to the destination. For me, I want to enjoy the entire journey. Be it travelling to the airport, waiting at the airport, inside the plane, getting out of the plane and all the not-so-interesing parts of travelling. The destination is not so important, as long as I enjoy the journey. It is the same for life. There is a saying, “Life is not about the destination, it is about the journey.” I fully agree with it.

Take a moment to think about the things that you do everyday. Do you want to rush through it just so that it is “completed”. Or you spend your time enjoying the moment when you are working on it. In Buddhism, there is a saying “you can become enlightened by just sweeping the floor.” In yogic practice, it is called the “Nishchala Tattvam”, which means creating an unwavering intention in whatever you are doing at that particular moment.

For me, I want to go to bed now and sleep with unwavering intention of having a good sleep. Good night. 😉

Law of Manifestation

7 Steps to Manifest

7 Steps of Law of Manifestation

  1. You need to calm down your mind. You can do so by deep breathing and also by doing meditation. If you want to send signal to the universe, you cannot send too many signals at once. For Law of Attraction or Law of Manifestation to work, your mind cannot be too messy. That’s why the first step is always to clear the clutter inside your mind.
  2. Once you have calmed down your mind, you need to think about what you want. That is you need to set your intention. Visualize that you are having the results of the intention now. You have already achieved the outcome. Make the visualization as vivid as possible.
  3. The next step is to feel the feelings of having the things that you want now. Imagine you are already having it. How do you feel? Guide your feelings towards love, gratitude, joy, excitement and bliss. These are the emotions of higher frequency which are much more powerful to attract what you want.
  4. Amplify the emotions of all the feelings you are feeling now. The stronger the emotions, the stronger the signals that you can send to the universe.
  5. Now, this is a counter intuitive part. You need to let go of the outcome. You need to detach from the emotions of looking forward towards achieving the outcome of your intention. Throughout the day, do not think about the outcome. Do not worry whether you will be able to get it or not. Have faith in the universe and let it do his job.
  6. Once you have detached, live fully at the PRESENT moment. Focus on the people, the work and the events which are in front of you now. Enjoy the present moment. Guide your feelings to the same emotions of love, gratitude, joy, bliss and excitement.
  7. Now, pay attention to the signals of the manifestation. It can come through a “delivery boy”. For example, if you want to attract job opportunity, pay attention to your emails, text messages and phone calls from anyone. He or she can be the one who “deliver” the opportunity to you. Receive the Manifestation with open heart.

Social Media Addiction

Do you know that Social Media Addiction is the same as drinking, smoking, gambling and taking drugs. Researchers have found out that the response in the brain for someone who like to look at Facebook and someone who take drugs are the same. If we take Social Media out of your life, that is uninstall all the apps, you will feel very uncomfortable and you will face withdrawal symptoms similar to a smoker quitting cigarettes. Try to quit Social Media for a week and see what will happen to you.

Don’t chase the butterflies

Don't chase butterflies, mend your garden and butterflies will come.

“Don’t chase butterflies, mend your garden and butterflies will come”.

This quote is very true in every aspect of life. If you chase after money, money will run away from you. If you chase after women, women will run away from you. Instead, we should cultivate a habit of building values. The values can be in the form of building better products, better services, better systems for your clients.

If you want to get a woman that you desire, focus on building values for yourself. You can start to exercise, improve yourself through reading, meditation, work on life’s challenges and work towards excellence. Also practice delayed gratification. It has been shown that the most successful people on Earth are the people who are patient and can delay their rewards.

Build your life into a beautiful garden and the butterflies you want will come. Spend your time chasing them with a net and dragging them to your garden and they’ll just fly away.
