Courage And Strength

"Courage isn't having the strength to go on. it is to go on even if you don't have strength"

Courage is a funny thing. Courage can not exist if fear doesn't prevail. It is important to experience the fear of giving up in the situations when you have to make a decision to keep fighting or to back off. We have an unlimited amount of strength within us. Our capabilities are endless. What we can make possible with our actions, can not be measured. But that strength is required to be found within, and pulled out, and courage is the tool required to do so. In life we face moments when we know we have a lot of strength reserved inside of us but we just don't feel like going on with it and decide to give in, maybe because the reason why we started doing it lost its importance, or faded away. On the other side their are moments when we just don't wanna give in. We decide to keep going because giving in is just not considered an option. We know right away that we aren't going back with this thing. We're here to do it and we will. we decide. its our decisions that produce courage and in turn, strength.

Turning dreams into realities requires a belief. A belief that the hard work will pay off. If you believe in your goals, all you need to do is keep taking a step forward. Now that seems like a simple task but it isn't. No its not that difficult too, if you believe so. And that's where courage comes in. Sometimes it requires a hell lot of courage to take the next step. But hey, the results are a hell lot bigger too. So keep walking. You are strong. All you need to do is decide and hold on to that decision.

Every person is born twice.

the quote of life.

Understanding Reality.

"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.

The truth is not based on religion.  Religion is something that divides people based on the way they carry out the truth, sort of like languages. "god is one" and "भगवान एक है" clearly means the same thing, the only difference being in the way one speaks.

Talking about the truth, very few people actually understand the meaning of truth. truth is what you believe. if you believe in something, and your belief is stronger than anything in existence, then, being the law of nature, you will get the evidence of it being true. truth exists nowhere but in our own minds. We make decisions based on what we've experienced. We accept the truth based on the knowledge that has been spoon fed to us since we were kids. We have been made to believe in something that we never observed. some people are comfortable with that, some are not. The ones who accept the fact that they know minimal, are the ones who gain the true knowledge about reality.

People come into this world. They observe and absorb. They learn about how things work, figure out facts based on which, they carry out their lives. Those facts according to me, is the truth, that can vary from person to person. some facts exists that are called "truth" by people but if i have nothing to do with those facts, i wont consider them as the "truth". Truth for one person maybe a lie for another, as both of them may have different believes. Their believes are based on what they have experienced through out their lives. What one believes, is the only knowledge that's going to help him through his life. Thus said, Truth is what you believe.  
"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."
I consider myself lucky to live on a land where our ancestors have done so much for us. Wise men have lived through the time, who based on simple fact "Truth is what you believe", laid down immeasurable knowledge, delivered to us as texts and stuff. All of that knowledge must have been derived from a basic fundamental idea, a primary principal. Our ancestors sort of explained how the life can be lead in the right way by realizing the truth and following it. They give us our ways. And our ways can differ based on regional dissimilarities, as different lands have had different ancestors. But all those ways point towards an ultimate knowledge, just like a tree with its many roots. As i think, cultures are different roots that lead to the one quintessential tree, the same knowledge. With all said, the bottom line is, you have to believe for something to be true.

late night thoughts.

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.

A thought.

just sayin.

Deciding the next step.

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." 
In the toughest situations of life, what causes stress is the question "what am i supposed to do" or "what should i do now". The confusion that prevails is enough to plant a seed of negativity in our minds that we might not be successful, or things might not go as planned.

Tackle that confusion. Don't let the fears haunt you. Realize your options. Go through the consequences and prepare yourself. Keep making decisions and don't stop. Because if you stop making decisions for yourself, you're committing a spiritual suicide. Life is a journey. All you need to do is keep taking a step forward.

As soon as you accept yourself.

As soon as you accept yourself.
• you calm down.
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.
Deep down we all know what's unique about us, how could we not know, we've been living with that shit throughout our lives. It's the fear of how the world would react, that we're unable to accept what makes us. Here's a thing. Don't tell them. Don't use your words to describe what you are, they won't listen. Use your actions. Do what you wanna do and they'll see. Believe in yourself and they'll believe too.
Keep that thing lighted up in yourself that drives you. They don't need to understand what you're going through. They'll watch you when you shine with your own light.

All you need to do..

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.. :)
