Introvert
 27 April 2019  

Introverts.We wear our chaos on the inside so that no one can see them. An introvert has a lot to talk about but he or she does not because they are not able too. It becomes for them to express their heart to someone because they don’t really understand them because they fail to express their heart. They cannot express themselves because of their personality. A person is introvert when they stay alone and love to spend time with themselves instead of someone else and hardly communicate with anyone. Sometimes they cannot express their feelings for someone they really love because they fail to, down the line they try but they cannot. It’s not really their fault.It’s just that they take time to open up or to share something with a second person. They are not hard to understand it just takes time to understand how they really feel. It’s not that they do not try to understand the other person who is trying to talk to them it’s because they are very shy and a bit uncomfortable to talk with someone. An introvert is not really open to any person, they never ask or give attention to anyone but at times if someone is really special to them or means a lot to them then they give attention and try their best to open up to them so that they don’t leave their side ever.An introvert is worried at times because he knows that he does not talk to anyone and if he or she does they might leave because if they are not able to adjust themselves with the introvert, they might just walk away without realizing that they are hurting someone or braking someone’s heart. People leave them because they feel weird because the introvert takes time for everything and it irritates some people and they tend to be frustrated and find reasons to break ties with the introvert. Introverts do not have many friends that’s the reason they feel lonely inspite of having friends because down the line they feel that in the bottom of their heart.I am an extrovert and I am a completely different personality as compared to an introvert person. But I feel if a friend leaves its not really their fault it’s just that they could not be patient enough to give the introvert a chance to express themselves. If you are an introvert and having difficulty to deal with people just give yourself a chance so that you can be a better version of yourself and overcome the fear of being shy. And if you have a friend who is introvert and you are facing difficulties in talking to them just give them some time so that they feel comfortable with you and then they share things with you. It does not take much to do this much good to a friend or to anyone out there.If you are a introvert trust me giving yourself a chance if have no harm and maybe after this you might really overcome your fear of being comfortable to anyone also you would never feel lonely ever, you just need to take a step and things would automatically become magical for you and you would be happy.~By. Saloni Maliwal.

Are you chasing your goals or merely its means?
 16 March 2018  

Have we got mixed up with our goals and the means to achieve those goals? Most of us have. Wake up before time runs out !...Unhappy and frustrated with recent exam results at school, my elder one was desperately looking forward to something that could soothe her mind. It is not only about kids and exams, it could be you and your career, you and your business, your life, your relations, your passion. Whatever be it, in most cases we seemed to have mixed up with our life's goals and the means to achieve those goals. Don't believe me? Look out for yourself."Dad, now don’t tell me that results do not matter. I know that efforts are more important. But still I am not feeling good...", said a disappointed Arushi."Well, the fact is that results do matter. However, they are not in our control. Our efforts also matter. The beauty of focusing on the efforts is that efforts are always in our control. In any case, let me share with you a story of one of my friends in the United States - that should probably make you feel better...""William Richards was one of my colleagues when we were in the USA. We call him Bill. And you know people there - they are so fond of taking long breaks from the mundane job, and going on for adventures like biking, hiking, boating, flying, and what not.""Ah! Those US days...", remarked Arushi with a glee in her eyes."Yeah...so, this guy – Bill, took a three-week vacation after we signed a new contract with the client. All of us had worked very hard for this, and we all deserved a break. Bill decided to walk up the mountains.""Ok...Is it around the same time we went to Disney World?", inquired Arushi."Yes, exactly, we also took that 3-week break..OK, so when Bill was back after 3 weeks,he explained me about an incident that was strangely disturbing for him.""What was that?""Bill told me that during one of the days when he was climbing one of the toughest peaks. That day was particularly rough for him. He had been climbing since last 6 hours and it was late in the afternoon already. He was literally sweating in the snow, his legs were paining, his shoulders were aching...He was finding it really tough. But of course, he did not have a choice at that time. While all that was happening, he heard a noise of a helicopter quite close to him. When the sound of the whirling helicopter blades increased further, he just looked up and was amazed to see what he saw.""What was there?""It was one of his friends and his neighbor Ronnie on the helicopter...Ronnie was a rich man, also fond of mountains.""Ah ok..""They waived at each other, and then Ronnie shouted that he was going to the M4 peak...Bill said he was too...""OK..."Ronnie then waived Bill to come over to the helicopter and he offered to throw the ladder down to pick him up. Bill was confused whether he should take this offer."C’mon Bill. We have the same goal. We can use his helicopter as a means to achieve this goal faster. What are you thinking? I started just 15 min back and we will be there at the M4 peak in next 5 minutes.""Then, did Bill accept his friends offer?""No, Bill did not. And whether Bill accepted the offer or not is irrelevant. The strange part was this. At that moment, Bill said that he definitely felt very frustrated, sad and hopeless.""That’s obvious Dad...Bill has been climbing for hours together and was in pain. His friend did all that in 15 minutes - just because his friend could afford to rent a helicopter.""It is not obvious my child. It is the core issue.”“Issue, what issue?”“Here is what the issue us. If Bill felt sad seeing his friend go past him and reach the peak in no time with least effort, then I am sorry to say that Bill has got completely messed up with his goals and the means to achieve the goal.""How?""OK. what do you think was Bill’s goal?""To reach the mountaintop.""Again, we always get it wrong here. That is the issue. We get so messed up. Think again why did he take the vacation? At that point when Ronnie was waving at him, Bill thought that reaching the top is the goal and climbing are the means to achieve the goal, while actually, it is exactly the reverse. Think. The climb is the goal and the mountaintop is the means that help him achieve his goal. Did he not take a break to enjoy a few days 'climbing'? The objective was always to climb and enjoy the climb. Now, having said that, remember that the mountaintop is also important, but just as a means. If there was no top, then there would be no climb.""Hmmm....quite interesting.""If he was clear about the goal (climbing), would he be frustrated to see his friend reaching the top faster?""Perhaps, no !""Definitely no. Who reaches the top faster and with how much effort - all this would cease to matter if the goal is to climb. It is just how we look at things. In fact, he should be satisfied that he is already achieving his goal of climbing - which cannot be accomplished in any way via a helicopter.""Interesting Dad....""And now tell me what is your goal when you study - to learn new things and acquire knowledge or to score marks?"Arushi went in thinking mode. It is this self-introspection only that was going to set her perspective right. I let her take her time. After some time, I had to trigger it.."So, let me make it absolutely clear to you. Marks are not the goal at all. Marks are just a means - that help you focus on your main goal - which is to acquire more knowledge, and become wiser. While striving to achieve more marks, your goal is to become knowledgeable and wise – and not the other way round. Let there be no doubt about this. Do not mess up your childhood days in this confusion. Do not do the same mistake that Bill did." "Wow, this does give me a different perspective. But that is not how our teachers and classmates think. They look highly on us only when we get good marks.""Yeah, that is how it is always going to stay - perhaps. They have messed up their lives, and we cannot go and correct everyone around us. It is not feasible. But my advise to you would be not to just follow the herd. The entire herd may be headed to hell."“I get that Dad…I definitely feel better..”Arushi got it. I got it a few years back. Some of you may get it with this post. Some will never get it. Doesn't matter. The end is the same for everyone. But hold....reaching the end of our life is not our goal. Reaching the end is just a means - a reminder - for us to improve, become better, possess more mental strength, exhibit more happiness, elevate someone's life - and these are our goals. Do not get messed up between the goal and the means.On a vacation trip remember that the goal is not to reach the destination, but to enjoy the in-between moments - waiting at the airport, the cab ride with family, the meal at the hotel, the dance party, the scuba dive, the isolated hour at the beach. In a job or a business, the goal is not to reach the next level - but to impact as many people, experience awesome time and relations on the journey. "You always had a goal of financial freedom....", remarked one of my readers."The goal was never to be financially free, Freedom is only a means to reach our goals - of doing what we love doing – writing, planting trees, spending time with children and spouse, taking care of parents, meeting friends - and having an enjoyable life.", I responded.CheersManoj AroraOfficial Website | My Mission

Boost Your Self Confidence Through Trekking
 27 May 2019  

Apart from many physical benefits, trekking also helps you in improving the mental as well as psychological health. To know more read the following article.In the last few years trekking in India has witnessed a huge surge in its popularity. And this led to the importance of distinct trekking tours in India such as trekking in Ladakh, Triund, Parashar Lake, etc. Though people have been following it as a trend there are multiple health benefits associated with it as well. It is easy to guess the physical benefits that include improved heart health, effective breathing, stamina, strength, etc. But there are psychological and mental benefits as well that boosts the self-confidence of an individual.Let’s examine how trekking boost self-confidence:Relieves stress: Hectic meetings, deadlines, performance, etc. all these burden the mind with stress which is the source of various health issues. Trekking, on the other hand, distracts the mind from a chaotic lifestyle and gives you space to breathe. For example, trekking in Nepal in amidst of the Himalayas helps you forget the stress and allures you towards the beauty of mountains. This releases endorphins responsible for relieving stress in the body and mind and ultimately makes you happy.Improves outlook: Negativity, unwillingness, anxiety, etc. often blocks the mind and doesn’t let you focus on the work. Whereas, trekking gives you the opportunity to drift these negativities away and focus on the necessary things. You may be trekking in hills, valleys, beaches, forests, etc. it helps you focus on the details of the environment which changes your outlook. It replaces negativity with positivity and feeds energy to the mind and body.Detoxifies digitally: Being digitally active all the time is another way that blocks the thinking capability of the mind and affects the nervous system. Going on a trek helps you detoxify digitally. It reconnects you with nature and brings awareness to the mind as well as body. This enhances the performance at work, communication skills and teaches compassion towards self and others.Strategic planning: Trekking is the most uncertain experience therefore it introduces you to the challenges that may come in the way. It helps you understand the challenges that may come, how to combat and ultimately win over them. As you gain experience, it helps you plan strategically for the trek as well as for life. Moreover, it helps in building managerial skills such as leadership, strategy management, resource planning, etc. To challenge your managerial skills trekking in Ladakh is the best trek route in India.Builds social circle: There can be a possibility that you are good at work but shy to build relations at work. Trekking helps you connect with people from around the globe to share thoughts and express yourself. You may either trek alone and be friends with a bunch of unknown trekkers and make connections for life. You may also trek with your colleagues, friends, family, etc. You will be benefited either way.Develops spirituality: Not many people can remember the last time they peek into their spiritual souls. The struggle between your personal and social life restricts you for the same. But if you are trekking in India, it isn’t that difficult to connect with the spiritual self. The river bank of the holy river Ganga, temples in India, trekking to the religious destinations helps you discover the spiritual self.Enhances efficiency: Since stress is relieved, the outlook is improved, digitally detoxified, strategic planning is improved, etc. All these eventually have positive effects on performance at work. Trekking helps you focus and concentrate on things for longer, sharpen your abilities and skills and helps you rediscover yourself. This enhances efficiency at work or at home.All the above-mentioned reasons shape the overall personality of an individual and hence, boost the self-confidence.

Book Title: Table For OneAuthor: Neha BindalFormat: Paper BackTotal Number of Pages: 180Language: EnglishPublisher: HALF BAKED BEANSPublishing Date: 20 July 2018ASIN: B07FQ7MWBCTaara Maheshwari, a single woman in her thirties and a successful lawyer, is tough from outside but a die heart fan of romantic movies from inside.She grew up seeking her “happily ever after’ but amid various heartbreaks and culture of modern age short term relationships,her believe in “true connections" got replaced by the comfort of being “emotionally disconnected.”After she turned 31, her parents persuaded her into meeting a guy for marriage who sounded just perfect for her. Acting on impulse,she told her parents that she would meet him only if they let her go on a trip to Europe.As Taara went on to explore the world, she experienced what actually happens when a single Indian girl travels to Europe all by herself. Is it only about dancing, singing or falling in love? What happens after you fall in love? Does love conquer all? Only her story would tell.My TakeThis is the story of protagonist Taara Maheshwari, a successful lawyer in her early thirties still unmarried. She is a confused women, who had encountered some heart breaks and doesn't know what to she wanted in her life. As her parents convinces for an arrange marriage. To which she agreed only if her parents would allow her for solo trip in Europe before marriage. She promised to meet the man once she returned back from the trip fortunately her parents agreed. She thinks it's an escape from marriage and quit her job to fulfill her dream to take a solo trip to Europe. Here her self-exploration starts with travelling diverse destinations, meets different kinds of peoples all around there, sang a song in public, danced crazily, went on trekking,  and many more she explored the Europe. Taara in this trips founds new friends as well as she is attracted towards Fred and was in love with him. To know more what happen next read the book. The book is a bag of emotions of love, heartbreaks, travel, romance, adventure, external love, internal love, self realization, happiness, peace, friends, family, life, and many more.Language is simple crisp and lucid and has the ability to bring live the events narrated in the book. The story flows like a movie and takes the readers on a journey  to Paris, Switzerland and Italy with Taara the every scene is so well written than you can actually get images of them in your mind. Characterization should be have been strong and done better and i don't like the sudden climax. The faced paced and engaging narration. The writer’s words has the capacity to hold the reader till the last page. The storytelling style was different and simply adorable. I loved Taara character through out the book. Characterization should be done better and i don't like the sudden climax. The cover and title is beautifully crafted.We are all taught that the most beautiful part of a fairy-tale is “happily ever after”. But we fail to notice that all fairy tales begin with “Once upon a time”. Once. It all happened. It was all real. Once. No matter who we are, what we do, or where we live, deep inside we all feel incomplete. It’s like we have lost something and need to get it back. Just what that something is, most of us never find out. And of those who do, even fewer manage to go out and look for it. Alone wasn’t just a closed dark room anymore but a whole wide world full of opportunities. I needed to explore and occupy the vastness of the world inside of me, which until now I hadn’t truly understood. Like the houses we build, the sky was also a shelter to few.I'll recommend this book to all the avid reader's.Overall 4/5 StarsGrab the copy here- AMAZON

Love dolls are so realistic that they just want to be friends with you
 1 January 2021  

セックス人形はとてもリアルなので、あなたと友達になりたいだけですリアルなラブドールは、美しい顔、長い脚、そして超エロティックなボディを持っています。彼女が本物の女性なら、あなたは彼女をほとんど持っていないかもしれません。あなたが彼女を見るとき、あなたはあなたが彼女にふさわしくないと思うかもしれません。彼女はとても現実的です、彼らはただあなたと友達になりたいだけです。セックス人形はどのように現実的ですか?老人が喫茶店に座って美女とおしゃべり。彼らは微笑んでいてとても幸せそうに見えます。久しぶりに男は女を家に連れて行った。私たちは、美しい女性は実在の人物ではなく、セックス人形であることを認識しています。私たちは、セックス人形が人形であるとは知らないほどリアルにできることを誇りに思っています。一部のお客様はフィードバックを残していますトム:TPEで作られたダッチワイフは非常にリアルな特徴を持っています。粉末にしたてのTPEも、肌と同じくらい驚きを感じます。マヌエル:私はそれがとても好きです。人形は物理的に完璧で、すべてが完璧です。大きなお尻、巨乳、すべてが素晴らしいです。重要なのは文句を言わないことです。ジョン・ドナ:人形は実在の人物のように見えてとても柔らかいと言わざるを得ません。私は人形ファンです。多分これは物語だと思います。ニューヨークの投稿に「私のセックス人形は私の本当の妻よりもはるかに優れている」という記事を公開しました。物語は、セックス人形と一緒に暮らす既婚男性の話で、彼のセックス人形は本物の妻よりも優れていると主張しています。セックス人形の所有者の話:セックス人形はあなたの妻よりも優れています東京在住の尾崎正幸さん(45)。彼はセックス人形top sinoを手に入れたので、彼は彼のセックス人形をマユと名付けました。彼はセックス人形を妻のように扱い、本物の妻よりも優れています。その理由は、尾崎正幸が妻を出産して寂しくなったため、娘が生まれてからは妻とセックスをしたことがないと語った。彼は日本の女性はとても寒いとさえ思っています。彼は、「彼らはとても利己的です。男性は、仕事から帰ってきたときに誰かに他の人の話を聞いてもらいたいので、文句を言わないでください。一方、セックス人形は私が問題を抱えていると文句を言うことはありません。そして、永遠に彼女と一緒にいたいと思っています。」尾崎正幸は、二度と他の人と一緒に暮らすことはないと言った。彼は彼の死後メイヨーと一緒に埋葬されるだろうと主張した。大崎正樹の話に驚いたら、大崎正樹は、公式に魔法を失ったこの国で、セックスドールとのロマンチックな関係を築き始めている日本人男性の一人であることをお伝えします。43歳のブロガーは、「将来的には、人形との関係を選ぶ人が増えると思う」と語った。私は変だと思われるかもしれませんが、スポーツカーを集めるのと同じです。どれだけのお金を使ったかはわかりませんが、ランボルギーニより安いです。研究者たちは、話したり、笑ったり、オルガスムをシミュレートしたり、誕生日を思い出したりできる新世代のセックスロボットを開発しているため、人形のユーザーは自分自身により多くのお金を期待しています。新しいセックス人形はとてもリアルなので、あなたと友達になりたいだけですセックス人形irontechdollは何百年もの間この世界にありました。改良と素材の変更を経て、セックスドールは非常にリアルなドールになりました。セックス人形の写真は、実在の人物の写真とほとんど同じです。写真からこれが単なるセックス人形であることを見つけるのは難しいです。誰かが自分のセックス人形を屋外に持って行っても、通行人がそれがセックス人形であると見つけるのは難しいです。したがって、セックスドールの外観は、話すことができず、一人で歩くことができないことを除いて、実際の人と同じです。その外観は実在の人物に限定されており、実在の人物よりも優れています。セックス人形が話したり考えたりできるとしたら、あなたは彼女の友達だと思います。あなたがハンサムで、金持ちで、成功していない限り、あなたが彼女と一緒に寝たくないのなら。人形職人のダチワイフは、新しいセックス人形はとてもリアルなので、あなたと友達になりたいだけだと言いました。最新のセックスドールモデルはとてもリアルなので、あなたがハンサムで、金持ちで、成功していない限り、彼らはあなたと友達になりたいだけです。3つの重要な条件の少なくとも1つを満たさない限り、超現実的な人形はあなたを直接友達の輪に連れて行きます。「以前のモデルは男性にとって簡単すぎたと思います。あなたが手放したいのなら、あなたはあなたの考えをあきらめなければなりません。人形jy doll職人のダチワイフは、それはとても簡単だと言いました。人形は男性が良くなることを奨励します。もしそうなら、セックスが起こることができる「新しい関係」期間があります。窓は約6か月で閉じ、セックスドールはなぜ指にリングがないのかと尋ね始めます。なぜこれほど現実的にするのですか?セックスドールは、障害を持つ人々が身体的なニーズを解決するのに役立ち、暖かい独身男性は、孤独ではなく、人生をより面白くすることができます。彼らは彼の仕事についてセックス人形に文句を言うことができます。セックスドールは尾崎正幸が好きな人などの既婚男性にも適しています。彼には妻と娘がいますが、それでも彼は孤独を感じています。セックス人形は彼に耳を傾けるために同行することができます。すでに述べたように、人々のニーズや欲求を満たすために、多くの人々にとって、wmドールはおもちゃではなく、パートナー、パートナーです。したがって、これにはセックス人形をますます現実的にする必要があります。近い将来、セックス人形は人間のように話したり歩いたりできるようになります。当社はセックスロボットを作ろうとしています。素朴な世界、あなたが彼女に触れると、彼女はあなたに反応することができると言えます。冬はとても寒いと思ってセックス人形を使わない人もいます。この問題を解決するために、セックスロボットには加熱装置があります。だから冬には、暖かいセックス人形を手に入れることができます。

Bhagavad Gita Verse 1.28
 13 June 2019  

Right Now Is The Goal - In Gita Verse 1.28 Arjuna said: My dear Kṛṣṇa, seeing my friends and relatives present before me in such a fighting spirit, I feel the limbs of my body quivering and my mouth drying up.It’s a good sign that even in Arjuna’s unconsciousness he went to Krishna. He did not turn to Krishna for his Desire. Read carefully this verse - when he says that “seeing my friends and relatives present before me in such a fighting spirit, I feel the limbs of my body quivering and my mouth drying up” - he recognizes his unconsciousness. He turns towards light - Krishna.When we are unconscious we don’t turn to God, light. We definitely go to God and temple for our desire, to fulfill our desire of objective world, but never ask how we can re-establish in our subjectivity.Arjuna was saying that the indication of his fear, body sensation - which he wants to work on. This signifies that he wants to work on his fear, his body quivering, mouth drying up - all this was driving him towards his Unconsciousness. He is becoming unconscious towards his subjectivity, disconnected with Universe. He needed Krishna’s support to re-connected with his subjectivity.Arjuna is not taking all this symptoms as negative or positive but looking how and with whose support he could again reconnect with his subjectivity. There is nothing like negative or positive. Our self-alertness at that moment is playing a key role in our life.Right Now Is The Goal:Buddha has told again and again to his monks, “I don’t say not to be angry. I say while you are angry, be alert.” This is really one of the fundamentals for mutation. “I don’t say not to be angry. I say: while angry, be alert.” Try it. When anger comes, be alert. Look at it. Observe it. Be conscious of it. Don’t be be in a slumber. And the more alert you are, the less anger. In a moment when you are really alert and anger is not - the same energy becomes alertness.Energy is neutral. The same energy becomes anger. The same energy becomes hate. The same energy becomes love. The same energy becomes compassion. The energy is one; these are all expressions. And there are basic situations in which energy can become a particular mood. If you are unalert, energy can become anger, energy can become sex, energy can become violence. If you are alert, it can become - the alertness, awareness, consciousness, doesn’t allow it to move in those grooves. It moves on a different plane - the same energy.Buddha says, “Walk, eat, sit. Whatsoever you do, do, but do fully conscious, mindful, aware that you are doing it.”Once it happened that Buddha was walking and a fly came and sat on his head, on his forehead. He was talking to some monks, so without really paying any attention to the fly, he just waved his hand and the fly left his forehead. Then he became aware that he had done something not fully aware, because his awareness was towards the monks to whom he was talking, so he said to the monks, “Excuse me for a minute.” He closed his eyes and he raised his hand again. The monks were amazed at what he was doing, because now there was no fly. He raised his hand again and waved his hand near the spot where the fly was - it was not there now. He brought his hand back and then he opened his eyes and said, “You can ask now.”But those monks said, “We have forgotten what we were asking. Now we want to ask you what you did. There was no fly - it was there previously - so what did you do?”Buddha said, “I did as I should have done before - fully consciously raising the hand. It was not good of me. Something had been done unconsciously, automatically, robot-like.”Such alertness cannot become anger, such alertness cannot become hate - impossible.In Bhagavad Gita Verse 1.27, it mentions that Arjuna became overwhelmed with compassion and spoke thus.Word compassion says that even in Arjuna’s Unconsciousness fragrance of his consciousness and subjectivity.This verse says that he turned to Krishna for his fear, means - as Buddha says “I don’t say not to be angry. I say while you are angry, be alert.” - Arjuna turning towards Krishna is turning towards his Subjectivity.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 2.67
 1 September 2019  

Wake-Up - In Gita Verse 2.67 As a strong wind sweeps away a boat on the water, even one of the roaming senses on which the mind focuses can carry away a man’s intelligence.Krishna says by giving example of the boat which we also have noticed many times that strong wind can sweep away a boat, but never realised that our unconsciousness also sweeps away our consciousness. We pass through many circumstances but so unconsciously. We don’t want to take our own responsibility. We just want to live in our unconsciousness, where we feel safety. We don’t want to wake-up. We want to run away from ourselves.It is not only you; almost everybody is running as fast as he can from himself. And the problem is, you cannot run away from yourself.Wherever you go you will be yourself.The fear is of knowing oneself. It is the greatest fear in the world. It is because you have been so immensely condemned by everybody for the smallest things – for the smallest mistakes, which are absolutely human – that you have become afraid of yourself. You know that you are not worthy.That idea has sunk very deep into your unconscious – that you are not deserving, that you are utterly worthless. Naturally, the best way is to get away from yourself. Everybody is doing it in different ways: somebody is running for money, somebody is running for power, somebody is running for respectability, somebody is running for virtue, saintliness.But if you look deep down, they are not running for anything, they are running away from. This is just an excuse, that somebody is running after money madly; he is deceiving himself and the whole world. The reality is that money gives him a good excuse to run after it, and hides the fact that he is running from himself. That’s why when he accumulates money; he comes to a point of tremendous despair and anguish. What has happened? That was his goal; he has achieved it – he should be the happiest man in the world.But the people who succeed are not the happiest people in the world, they are the most miserable. What is their anguish? Their anguish is that their whole effort has failed. Now there is no more to run after, and suddenly they are encountering themselves. At the highest peak of their success they meet nobody else but themselves. Strangely enough, this is the fellow they have been running from.You cannot run from yourself. On the contrary, you have to come closer to yourself, deeper into your being, and to drop all the condemnatory tones that have been handed over to you by everybody you have known in your life. The parents, the husband, the wife, the neighbors, the teachers, the friends, the enemies, everybody is pointing to something that is wrong in you. From no source comes any appreciation.Humanity has created a very strange situation for itself in which nobody is at ease, nobody can relax, because the moment you relax you face yourself. Relaxation becomes almost a mirror, and you don’t want to see your face because you are so much impressed by the condemnatory opinions of others.That is one of the reasons why people are also afraid of solitude; they want a crowd, they want always to have people surrounding them, they want friends. It is very difficult for people to remain silent and peaceful in aloneness. The reason is that in aloneness you are left with yourself – and you have accepted the stupid idea that you are ugly, that you are sensuous, that you are lustful, that you are greedy, that you are violent; there is nothing that can be appreciated in you.Going inwards is the whole secret of all alchemical transformation of being. Running away is simply wasting tremendous valuable time, and a life that could have been a great song, a great creativity, a tremendous festival of lights. The farther away you are from yourself, the darker your life will become, the more miserable, more anxiety ridden, more wounded, condemned, rejected by yourself.Krishna says to Arjuna that because of your unconsciousness what you are seeing is your rejections from Kauravas. In that your consciousness has swept away. You are miserable and want to run away from this war, but you are not actually running away from war you are running away from yourself, which is your consciousness.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 2.45

Transcend Duality - In Gita Verse 2.45 The Vedas deal mainly with the subject of the three modes of material nature. O Arjuna, become transcendental to these three modes. Be free from all dualities and from all anxieties for gain and safety, and be established in the self.Krishna says that all the knowledge unless become your own knowing, means unless person becomes capable of transcending, then only you will be able to establish in the self. He is not saying that you follow even the God, he says unless person settels in himself he cannot be liberated first from his animal nature. Means duality.Please understand scientifically, our body has evolved from animal, with the nature of animal. So duality in the form of anxieties, and searching others for our safety. When we as human beings evolved from animal we are born with the seed of consciousness, potentiality to grow in consciousness. When we grow in consciousness we will find freedom and not safety. Freedom for duality, anxiety, safety, anger, etc. This will be the first sign of growth in consciousness.When we go to school at that time teacher doesn’t directly teach us theory they start from alphabet, gradually we learn to make sentences and then it goes on. Same is the process of transcending duality. It will start from where we are. We are at duality, so there is lot of anxiety, anger etc. When you grow in consciousness means gradually you started transcending your duality. First you will transcend duality of anxiety and safety. You will for the first time experience freedom from your animal nature. Suddenly your urge to understand love will arise. But that is also in the crude form. So you will look everywhere else but not towards yourself, as we have always experienced and understood love means from someone, it starts from parents, to brothers and sisters, friends, spouse, children etc. But unless we love our self we cannot transcend love. It will be an ongoing process to grow in consciousness. When love comes we have all the questions regarding sex also. How to transcend the sex energy. As unconsciously after the maturity age we have experience that sex has something more as it gives birth to child, it has life. At the same time it is available and we are capable of sex for certain period of the life only. But certain experiences of ours says that something more is nothing to do with the age. So search for that starts.Do we have to transcend sex before you love yourself?You don’t have to transcend anything. You have to live everything that is natural to you, and live it fully, without any inhibition – joyously, aesthetically. Transcendence will come just by living it deeply.You are not to transcend anything. Remember. Transcendence will come by itself, and when it comes by itself it is such a release and such a freedom. If you try to transcend, you are going to repress, and repression is the sole reason why people cannot transcend; so you are getting into a vicious circle. You want to transcend, so you repress, and because you repress you cannot transcend, so you repress more. As you repress more, you become more incapable of transcendence.Live it out fully, without any condemnation, without any religion interfering with your life. Live it out naturally, intensely, totally – and transcendence comes. It is not your doing, it is a happening. And when it comes by itself, there is no repression, there is no antagonism.You are above all those things that you wanted to transcend – for example, sex. But a real transcendence does not mean that you cannot make love. Of course your love will have a totally different quality. It will not be sexual, it will not be a biological urge, it will not be animalistic; it will be simply a play between two human energies.If transcendence comes by itself, then many things disappear, more or less. But you are not against anything that disappears. You can still enjoy it. For example, in a state of transcendence you are not a food addict, but that does not mean that you cannot enjoy, once in a while, going to a Chinese restaurant.Transcendence makes you free; it does not give you a new bondage: first you were so addicted that you had to go, now you are so addicted that you cannot go. Transcendence means that now all this addiction is gone – you can go, you may not go. You are neither against nor for.You may be smoking. Transcendence does not mean that once in a while with friends you cannot smoke a cigarette. I don’t think that a cigarette, once in a while, will destroy your spirituality. And if it destroys it, then that spirituality is not worthwhile.Krishna is saying that don’t condemn anything don’t run away but use the knowledge to transcend it settles in your subjectivity to deliver assignment of universe.

Back in June 2019 Mr. Pant tried one more time to make it possible to contribute for the process by which selection in the world poetry championship happens every year in Sinaia located in Romania and to make the first step possible he sent them the email with his two poems attached.For such a great purpose once more he chose the poems on the environment and this time not barrier reef but Arctic was the theme in which he wrote 2 poems and sent them for the submission process so the jury could examine and along side his registration was confirmed by the officials. As a short background here the poems have to go through the peer review and if they are cleared the jury approves them and consider them both for the festival anthology as well as for the Poet's entry in the world poetry championship ceremony that takes place in Romania. Hence when Mr. pant first took on the task to send them on it was a happy moment, he felt elated to send once again back in June 2019 and now only he had to wait for response. Meanwhile the process was on, Mr. pant relived moment of the past, kept in touch with the people who have been part of such a platform also in past, and hence in regular momentum he came to know at least for his satisfaction that his chosen theme was unique and it may inspire some fruitful result on the core that was sure to come. However he had his own douts, whether the languages with spelling mistakes may count, may be some metaphors or other figure of speech be challenging, or other things and while he had come to Delhi with some thinking pranks amongst his old friends and juniors, the luck and fate both awaited. The process was on and he had to wait as it is a long process, the competition is huge and so many poets from all across the world in all ages come to force not willing to miss such a chance and he was patient waiting for his happy moment to come to him soon. Although Mr. Pant was not quiet before he had come to Delhi, he had published 1 more edition of the Warming Boom, had been presented a falicitation by Poetry Ireland, some great responses for his works were still on the go and hence if the news of happy moment would have come sooner thence it was going to be  an icing on the cake making it more delightful. He kept himself busy in those days, had some content writing with the Writing Squad, made some more great friends after coming back to the Indian capital for 1 year computer course and here also in July he had managed to release the 2nd edition of print books from Poetry Ireland and all that was going to come was a bigger happy news that could increase the celebration. The process was almost done as the August was coming, Mr. pant's wait was still on the same pedestal being patient, and hence after reading through some great posts from T S sir about poetry as well as the progress of the World Literature Academy of Romania, the happy hopes were to come around. It was now just a matter of time to share a great news with all and it has now happened as the news of the result of the selection has come this 3rd of August and different lists are made according to the category of the creative works as other genres for presentations in the festival anthology are also considered. There are some prominent poets who are on the top list, the other list contains the proce, One more that considers the Hykoo writers, and mainly where Mr. Pant's name is of the Primie De Excillenta, where after counting the names from the top Mr. pant is able to find his name listed on the 107th spot and feels honoured to have such a great joy. Thus he would like to express his gratitude to parents and family, the world poetry championship jury and Ts sir with his entire team from Romania, Mr. Pant's author team both online and in Mumbai offices, and most vitally all the readers across all the Europe and world, And his deepest of congratulations to all who are coming for championship ceremony. He hopes that the memory shall be a cracking one coming in future. He is excited to look forward to be part of it with all the great poets for a great memory to cherish. And once again thanks to all those with who's blessings this has been made possible once again, till more happy moments and delight of the championship moments come It's cheers from charlie for now...
