|Couldn't find a better start.|
"Everybody knows what to do. They wait for someone to tell them." - Hritik Roshan.Nobody has the right to tell you how big or small your dream is. Nobody, but you, has the right to define your limits, how capable you are or you can be. People who dream are the people who make. People who wish different, are the people who stand out of the crowd because they have their special dreams, dreams that were once not accepted by people around them, dreams that were rejected and were told that they were impossible or inappropriate, that they then turned into reality. The people who stood for their dreams, protected their dreams and made them real, knew that if they too start thinking like the others, they'll be letting them plant the seed of negativity in their minds which after words is going to do nothing but create an immense barrier between their dreams and their reality. But they never did let them plant the negative seeds. They took over, conquered, and became the identities that other people now look up to, for inspiration.
For people who set an example, they say "they dared to dream". I say you don't have to "dare" to dream. Dreams are the only thing purely yours. nobody can tell you what to dream or how to dream or when to dream. You dream however you want, how much you want and whenever you want to. You have courage. You have strength. All you need to do is put that courage and strength into the right place, onto the right track, where your dreams are headed. As you make sure your will and your dreams go parallel to each other, you shine.
"Our deepest fear is not that we're inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we're powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. Their is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people wont feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children. Its not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." - Timo Cruz.I put so much pressure on the word "dream" because i understand something. Its the importance of dreams. To people who understand the importance of dreams like i do, who share this understanding with me, i wanna say this- Dreams are the most prized possessions. Each one of us is here on a path, maybe a starting point or too close to the goal, because we want something. we took a decision; a decision based on a dream. when we took that decision, we ended some amount of negativity. deciding the next step always kills negativity. No dream is too big or too small. Judging the size of dream does no good, wastes time, that can rather be spent on working, trying to turn that dream into reality. I like to write. I like to think about how life works, how mind works, how we behave, how they behave and why. I like expressing my thoughts and i have a dream that this will be my occupation and i will be known for it.
PS- I wrote some stuff on courage and strength, click on it. it's a nice read.
To make something special, you just have to believe it's special.

"Our essence of mind is intrinsically pure. All things are only it's manifestations, and good deeds and evil deeds are only the result of good thoughts and evil thoughts respectively. Imagination, thoughts and will make deeds, and by our deeds we make ourselves. all that we are is the result of our thoughts; it is founded on our thoughts, made up of our thoughts." - The Patriach Hui-neng
"The stuff of which the world of our experience is composed, in my belief, neither mind nor matter, but something more primitive than either. Both mind and matter seem to be composite, and the stuff of which they are compounded lies in a sense between the two, in a sense above them both, like a common ancestor." - Bertrand Russell, the analyst of mind.

"Every person on earth has the same ability to adapt. If everyone went through the same experiences, there won't be any differences. A person is made from what he's been through. A person makes a decision based on his experiences. People are all the same but each one of them has a uniqueness."

Never be afraid of doing what you wanna do.
The time when you'll stop giving an f about the consequences and decide to do what you've always wanted, will be the time when you've had enough. And that time will be the most memorable time of your life. Because your life begins to change from the moment you give up your fears and start chasing your dreams.

So many times in life people get caught up with options. So many times we have more than one path to choose from. Those stops, where we have to make a choice are the stops where a large amount of negativity enters our mind. "What if we make a bad decision?" "what if this is the wrong path?" "what if I get a dead end?" "what if I'm not successful?" "What if I don't get what I want?" ~ some sick questions we ask ourselves. I have been asking myself the same questions for days now, until i started writing again. Do I really need to worry ? Do we really need to exhaust our minds on questions that do nothing but create more questions? When I decided that I'm going to make this blog my profession, i did expect difficulties but I never really gave a thought to this kind of situation, where my point of interest looses its stability. That's totally human we make mistakes while we're amateurs, but this is what l've learned- You're always gonna attract more and more negativity when you do nothing.
there's an old saying where I'm from. "खाली दिमाग शैतान का घर" ~ on translation, it means, In empty minds resides Satan. You have to keep moving forward. All you need to do is keep moving forward. I've been posting the link of that article in almost all of my blogs now. This made me wonder that everything I say and everything I read tells me to keep moving forward. That's what I've been missing out lately. I stopped moving forward and I let my mind deviate with the negative thoughts. Sometimes it is healthy to let yourself go off balance so that you can learn to face challenges. But life is like a bicycle, you have to keep moving to stay in balance. Just remember that whatever path your walking on, it is the path that you chose for yourself when you were asked to take a decision. So keep walking and keep working hard on it, because its your job to work hard and not to worry about the results. You'll always have choices, You'll have to decide. You make sure that you're smiling when you're trying to decide something.
"there can be either hard work or regret."

• you don't have to struggle to change something about you.
• you start living with yourselves. You start liking yourselves.
• you realise your gifts. You start admiring your abilities.
• you realise your uniqueness.
• you forgive yourself.
• you stand for yourself.
• you got your own back.
• you start working towards improving your own skills.
• you start upgrading yourself rather than changing yourself.
• you realise your goals better and all of a sudden it becomes easier to work hard.

Makes sense right ?
During my highschool i had this one of my favorite songs - "the climb". I still get chills when i play it. It makes a lot of sense. Sometimes in life its not about how fast you have to achieve a goal. The only thing that matters is that you are moving. With each step you're getting closer to your goal. No matter how big the step is, its taking you in the right direction.
You may break, you may lose on the short run. But on the longer run, failures are healthy, as the saying goes "to improve you must break yourself".
Just keep moving so that whenever you look back, you always find yourself better than you were. Coz that's what life is.. :)

Now the next question i imagine myself answering too is "what do you think about god?", which is currently my favourite question too. god is... whatever you want it to be. Its the matter of faith. If you believe in something, and that something happens, the reason why your belief turned out to be true, is god. god is a faith inside our hearts, it can not be defined. for a man who believes that god exists in a statue of an idol, and his belief is stronger than anything he can think of, then god is in that statue of the idol. for me the reason his belief works, is god. in my 20 years of life experience what i understood is, i have a heart. Not that blood pumping organ, but the heart that gave me a challenge to write down words to describe it. that heart connects me with the god.
that's all i wanna share right now..

"This is the point when I don't have a problem being scared. I'm nervous. I feel ok with the heart beat rising up. I breath heavy, but I'm not confused because this is what I want and I'm doing this. I know I could fail; chances are high. As been said, fear is not real but danger is very real; danger of me failing if I don't move forward. But I'm moving forward. I don't settle. Chances are that I might make it and that is for the devil to be afraid of. The devil named fear has been residing inside me, who now i know is scared as he might stop but I won't." - Manish Arora, The Thinking Turtle.
We often consider failure as the stopping point. It's not the failure that decides if you're going to win or not. It's the determination that you're ready to fail again but you can not stop, that decides your win or loss. On a road to reach your goals, you may pause for a while, but you can not stop. It's not in your nature to stop. You always have to keep moving forward. You always have to keep taking a step forward, the basic thing to do. People are afraid to break. They fear failure as if they cant stand up again when they get down. People are often unable to understand the fact that failure is necessary to improve. The human body is gifted with the ability of adaptation. Our body adapts in the environment provided to it.
Nobody can deny the fact that when muscle tissues break, they re-develop themselves with greater strength and efficiency so as to be able to handle the load that caused them to fail. Neither can anyone deny the fact that a person becomes mentally stronger every time he goes through a heart break. When your comfort ends and you start to struggle yourself to keep moving forward, facing the difficulty which keeps trying to hold you back, that’s when you develop strength that pushes you to go against the odds.
When you went through something terrible and you fought, when you faced the discomfort and the pain of failure just before you broke, you created a change in yourself. Don’t be upset that u gave up. Be encouraged that u gave it your best shot before giving up. As you failed trying hard to achieve, you developed yourself and triggered the change in you. You’re body, heart and mind adopted to the situation and grew stronger so that the next time you fight, it is made sure that you fight longer and harder.
Not really my first post on any blog. I have another blog on tumblr having the same title.
What i frequently think about is creating an identity for myself. Defining the meaning of my presence in this world. Contribution of myself to the world is what i aim in my life..
On this blog i wanna share my thoughts, my experiences with you. I hope you relate them to yourself and i may somehow be of help to you. Hope i develop a nice relationship with you.. :)
