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. 😉
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 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.
“Live at the Present Moment, the Future will take care of itself.” The past and the future only happen in your mind. Only the Present Moment counts. Only the Present Moment you are able to control. Only the Present Moment you can live in. Make it counts.
