Do we Time Travel???

     At times, we all do time travel in our imagination. Most of us dream about the future, sometimes about the painful past and fewer times about the good times in our past!! Apart from our future and past, do we time travel to a different time period??? Yes, we do! Have you ever thought about the triggering factors in such time travelling??

     From my experience, the masterpieces of human art are one of the most powerful factors that can make us time travel. For example, James Cameron took us to a different world through his masterpiece "Avatar" (2009 Film). The masterpiece sculptures have the same power as well!

     Nature also has the power to make us time travel! In one of my previous blogs, I penned down my time travelling (pausing) experience through this conversational blog!

     The third and most crucial factor is our imagination. Even though imagination plays a vital role in the above two scenarios; those were triggered imaginations and were highly influential either by the masterpiece or nature. Whereas our imagination at times randomly takes us to a different period; our human intelligence is a chaotic algorithm, which is yet beyond our science and computational advancements.

How life gets balanced???

     Have you ever seen someone who consistently lives a smooth life?? Even though it all comes down to our perspective towards the life and the flow of life; in a way we all are emotional. It doesn't matter whether one is a believer or atheist! 

     We all know that life is a blend of ups & downs, success & failure, love & hatred, peace & violence and so on. I look into life in terms of numbers! Assume the +ve numbers are the ups and -ve numbers are the downs in our life. ...,-3,-2,-1, 0, 1,2,3,... It is hard for us to stay in the ZERO state.

     From my observation, nature always tries to balance our life. Think about your life!! Your successes and failures, in my language, your +ves and -ves!! You will always see a balance. It is true that there is always a silence before the storm! A downfall before the victory!

     Few years ago, there used to be a man, who never did any good deeds in his life! His life was so complicated than anyone else! When he was a kid, he gave trouble to his parents, teachers and anyone associated with him. Once married, he got addicted to alcohol and drugs. He was a bad husband and a worst father; in few years, when his child was eight years old, he died out of drug overdosage!

     In this example, do you think his life was balanced??? In few occasions, we come across such people, where either their life is filled with a lot of positives or just negatives!! Why??? In the above-quoted example, this man made a huge impact on his family and surroundings. The people who knew him decided not to get into any addictions; because, they clearly saw what that would cause. Look at him in this angle, he helped a lot of people to live a good life! Doesn't it make him a HERO?? HERO!? It is not just our life. We are part of the bigger picture, and we all contribute towards the greater purpose. Believers say it's God's plan; whereas atheists say it's just the flow of life!

Why we should avoid Fortune Tellers and Astrologists???



     Before we get into the topic, I would like to share a story that I heard from my father. Many years ago there lived a King along with his Queen and the Prince. One day, the Prince heard about a famous astrologist and went to meet him. Prince always wanted to stay single and to serve the people. This astrologist told the Prince that he should get married within a year. Prince immediately thought that the astrologist is bluffing and left the place. To his surprise, he fell in love within few months and got married within a year.

     In few years, the kingdom was under threat due to an invasion from one of the strongest empires. Prince again went to the astrologist. The astrologist told him that he should win the battle in 6 weeks time. Again, the prediction by the astrologist becomes real.

     Prince was really happy and even appointed the astrologist as Astrology Minister in his court. The kingdom was in peace. One day, the Prince asked about his father; the astrologist told him that his father should die exactly in 25 days. Since the King was sound and healthy, both the King and Prince got angry with the astrologist and sent him to the jail. Nation's best doctors were appointed to monitor King's health. On the 25th day, the King died by heart attack!!!

     What do you think of the astrology? What would have Price done to the astrologist?? Since his predictions were correct, what would you do??? Well, the Prince removed the astrologist from the court and never visited an astrologist for the rest of his life! Why??? It's simple; do you agree that the Astrology or the Fortune Prediction can either be true or false. If it is true, we cannot change it!! If it is false, what is the use in believing that?? So in either of cases it seems to be just waste of time. When we start believe in these predictions, we get into emotional battles and confusion. What do you think?

Is Money Good or Evil???

     Have you ever asked this question? I'm sure, most of you have asked this several times! as I do. What is the root cause of destructive wars? What is the root cause of jealousy? What is the root cause of most of our worries in this world? Don't you think, Money plays a vital role in all these issues? I strongly believe Money is one of the major root cause in all these cases!

    Does that mean Money is Evil? Lets assume Money is evil! But, but.. is it possible to kick this Money away from our lives?! How is that possible? What would I do for living? How would I feed my wife and daughter?! Do I have to go back to Stone Age?! Relocate to a forest and live with nature?... 

     Live with nature.. Isn't that a great idea. Don't you agree people spend millions to pass their vacation at nature friendly locations to have peace and relaxation? Yes, we do.. Imagine our world without money... What would happen to innovations? Who would fund them? If there is no Money, won't that change some of us to become lazy???

     When I think deeper and deeper... Money may neither be a good thing nor a bad thing!! It all depends on our perception and the way we handle it! The problem arises when we start giving importance or value to money! But its very difficult to be neutral with money. History shows us again and again that, the people who are neutral with money are really powerful and leads a happy life... Don't you think we should also try to be neutral when it comes to money??????

When does life travel????

     Have you ever thought that, why we all are getting old day by day? Gaining more and more experiences? Facing ups and downs in terms of materialistic and non-materialistic? Having happy and sad moments? Why there is no fast forwarding or rewind buttons in life? Isn't it good to have those buttons in life?

     Some people believe life starts at BIRTH and ends at DEATH, on the other hand few believe there is no end! The form keep on changing but the inner soul has no END! When you think about this in terms of science; YES, the form keep on changing but the energy or power remains the same. Still Science is unable to explain about the soul part! Nature has answers to all our questions... But if we question about nature!!! It opens up new discussion, arguments and threats.

     When you think deeper and deeper about this process; the reality is that we all are in the flow of nature. Somehow we are forced to travel in the flow. Yes, we are the travelers, but who drives our life?? Is that some external force or we??? Whoever it is, the life keep on travelling either knowingly or unknowingly, as the time clock ticks. As the travellers, what are we supposed to do????

     In the history of humans, it is recorded that most of us are running behind Fame, Power, Money, Love, Comfort, recognition and so on in that line of interest. Eventually we keep on spending most of our time in attaining our desires; few wins and others don’t!

     This reminds me a short story, there were two butterflies they fell into a river. The first one was trying to swim hard to fight with the river; on the other hand, the second one simply enjoys the flow of river! In the end, the first one dies sooner in the fight, whereas the second one lives longer and also had a satisfaction that it was helping the river to flow in its direction! The funny thing is the choice is in our hands. We can either choose to fight or we can simply go with the flow of life! How is your travel? Do you flow with the life? Think…

How to select your Life Partner????

     It's been a long time I penned down something in my blog. I got too busy after my engagement and wedding. Life has become much more beautiful after the arrival of my wife. A small piece of advice to all the bachelors out there; get married! Also be very careful when selecting your life partner; be patient and look around until you find the one. Believe me it took several years for me to find out my better half in this whole world!

     There are couple of factors that you should take into consideration. Everyone has their own expectations; sometimes it might be very funny. First be sure about your top prioritized expectations from your life partner. List them out, sometimes you might need to consider the expectations from your parents too. Just list them all.

     It is not an easy task to come up with this list. I strongly believe marriage is something that is very very important in the life and that is forever. Let me give you some tips on developing this list. When I started preparing   my list, initially it was unrealistic! Do you know why? The first priority was the looks, was expecting someone like a Barbie Doll; second, it comes the status, someone like Bill Gate's daughter and the third expectation was the professional status. But the fact is you cannot expect someone with all these qualities, so think realistic. This is very important, because once you are married both will be having 100% stake on each others life. The truth is the chemistry and compatibility are something which are way beyond beauty, richness and professional status. These can only help in the very beginning to get a comfort level with each other! When life progresses it is all about three most important things, which are LOVE, LOVE and LOVE!

     My recommendation is to have a realistic expectations. Before making wedding decisions, make sure you and your partner should feel 100% compatible with each other. In my case it was arranged come love, my cousin who is a professor found my angel. Then it was the facebook:), which helped us to exchange our expectations, interests and thoughts. We realized both match each others expectations to a great extend. Then, we met and felt for each other! That moment was amazing, it is still in my heart and that moment will always be! That was the time we both realized we are born for each other... Go ahead, list your expectations and find your life partner! Life is short, live it to the fullest!

How do we operate??

How does a human behave? Have you ever thought about the inputs to a human?- light, sound, touch/feel, smell??? And how are they controlled? -self, God, nature???

One thing is clear that the human system has memory in it. People don't react based on the current inputs. For example, don't you get angry if someone hits you? The answer is Yes and No. No??? -In your memory that opponent might be your baby son!! We cannot predict ones behavior based on current circumstances...

Till date (Oct 14, 2011), nobody knows the capacity of human memory!! Science/Technology will never win the nature, unless it immerse itself into the nature!

Based on several psychological experiments, it is possible that 50% of human behavior is predictable! This probability increases by getting to know more about the particular individual in question.

So many great psychologists in the history tried to take psychology into calculation!! As a result they come up with astrology, horoscope,... People are made to believe in Science/Education. Most of us do and the few left outs become the great innovators!

Now think, how do you operate? What/Which is controlling you??
