OUR HEART IS EPI-CENTRE OF OUR HAPPINESS
In our daily lives, we experience diverse situations and those situations leave an indelible imprint / impression on our consciousness. An impression which hugely impinges and brings about emotional upsurge affects our heart. Impression(s), so experienced, may be bad or good. But a person who knows how to convert bad debt (bad impressions) into credit (good impressions) is a happy / elated person – a bouquet of positivity.
Happiness is a state of mind and differs from person to person. A person could be unhappy with all material prosperity in the world! A person who maintains equanimity despite adverse situation is a happy person. A person with sattavic attributes believing in wellness, selfless service, considers others’ needs above his own, maintains self restraints despite temptations is a happy person / a person with elated heart.
A person with less material possessions but has the richness of satiety level at whatever his present state of status is better on the happiness quotient. Those who know their self fully make use of ‘look inside’ policy for fulfillment. This fulfillment is God Oriented. Whatever they do, is transacted with pure mind and without any ill-will for anybody. These people believe in action caring fig for results of their actions. If results are good they thank our Creator for the results but if results are negative, they also thank their CREATOR – thinking, may be that was the ultimate decision of HIS and HIS DECISIONS are always for the good of humans.
Having everything at the beck and call, yet ambitious for more. That person goes all out in eking out and piling on the riches as if he had come to this world this mission only. This sort of a person is tamsic in nature with traits like selfishness, greed, anger, covetousness in his actions and deeds.
- How much of real happiness a doctor feels when his patient is cured of the debilitating disease only that doctor can tell!
- How much happy you feel when you pick up an hapless accident victim on your own to the hospital and that person’s feeling at the time when he / she recovers!
- How much a writer gets happiness when his/her write up immensely inspires people resulting in abdicating bad habits!
- How much happiness do a person gets when his / her offspring follows correct path in life which may make that person proud!
- How much parents gets happiness when they learn of their offspring making a mark in life!
- How much a Preacher of a spiritual knowledge gets satisfaction when people adopt spiritual path due to his spiritual preaching!
- How happy you feel when you make others smile by rendering help when they badly require that!
- How elated you feel when you assist bodily challenged individual to cross a traffic congested street!
- Is spiritually realized one with no extra burden of negative garbage like anger, jealousy, ill-will, et al.
The ibid given episodes are a few in numbers but can make one feel on the top of the world while enhancing ecstasy.
Presently, we are witness to so many people involved in sordid corruption cases. It is not surprising to know the people who showed externally their lily white character in the society, were found to have involved in black deeds! By doing so, these people have not only played hide and seek with the law of the land but also stripped the people with merit to earn legitimately. Can these people be happy in real life? I doubt.
There are so many cases of well to do / well-connected people involved in various corruption cases. They have minted crores of money through their illegal means and when told to account for their earnings by the law enforcement agencies, they were clueless and had no plausible answers. As a consequence, they have to feel the heat of the law taking its course. The money amassed by following illegal means has not been of help to revive their tarnished image and standings in the society. Image once lost cannot be retrieved should always be remembered. A life bereft of respect in the society is no life worth living. Is this a HAPPY LIFE with material possessions aplenty?
A person who ekes out his living with utmost sincerity, honestly and consciously is ever satisfied person. No temptation can tempt that person for that person knows for sure that he / she had not brought anything while he / she was born and would not be taking anything while departing this world. That person maintains equanimity both in happy and said moments. Also, that person spreads happiness wherein-so-ever he / she sets foot. Everybody wants to emulate that person looking at the state of his mind. That person is the happiest of all. No doubt about it.
We can call that sort of a person as UPRIGHT PERSON with ELATED HEART at all times.
With this intention in mind, I have penned down a poem titled ELATED HEART. Kindly comment. My heart feels elation when you comment!
When our heart experiences elation,
With it, the speed of our life’s boat get acceleration.
Every omen augurs well for us,
Even dark dreadful shadows reflect a flicker of light for us,
Uphill tasks get accomplished with ease,
We are free of malice and in perfect mental peace.
Harsh realities of life can be met with a broad smile,
And, if someone goes a furlong, we run for a mile,
We venture to get our goal with our sweat and toil,
We carve our pathway even in slippery soil,
We want to share our joys with our brethrens,
Pure of heart and with excellent intentions,
Purity of heart brings forth contentment,
Contentment brings forth basketful of happiness,
O, Almighty God, make Elation of Heart a contagious one,
So that it spreads from one to ten.
DOUBT THE MOTHER OF WORRIES & PROBLEMS
All looming doubts have the unfortunate symptoms of creation of looming black clouds of worries / problems in our lives. Attend to the doubt that emerges and solve it then and there. Never sleep over doubts or sweep these under the carpet. Otherwise, these would come out of the carpet and become nightmares / immune to any solution afterwards.
Most of the differences in our lives with others just creep due to incipient doubt. This doubt germinates into our mind and makes a permanent place and gives birth to bitter fruits in the form of worries. These worries tend to imbalance our mental equilibrium. On the surface of it, we may not agree initially about its (doubt) existence but shadow of doubt remains lurking in our mind even after things have been clarified by the parties concerned and remains pestering us. Thus remains creating still more problems, worries and all the negativities.
For instance, if one of the spouses doubts the fidelity of other, seed of doubt brings about difficulties in adjustment between them. Even if the doubt is clarified yet its shadow remains resulting in aggravation of differences. This adversely affects the familial atmosphere. The children are the hapless victims of this entire doubt game.
Doubt your own abilities,
Find yourself over-shadowed with difficulties,
Work you must to earn your esteem,
By effacing the doubt from your being.
Lingering doubt on the spouse of your own,
Will make your life a bed filled with thorns,
The spikes of which will prick thee every moment,
It’ll also pierce thy conscience the most.
When thy employer doubts they sincerity,
Doubts robs thee of the parity,
In respect, that you should have got otherwise,
Be not with doubtful sincerity,
It will give birth to vexing disparity.
Think of a man with doubtful integrity,
He lives but without a pure soul,
Right he has to breathe on the soil,
Of his birth, but in his heart of hearts he knows,
That he is living corpse worth nothing to his friends or foes,
He is nothing to the mother, who showed him the dawn of day,
Such a man dies umpteenth times before death favour him actually,
On his death people just utter,
Gone is the man who was burden not only to his own self,
But also on the soil which used to withstand his worthless being.
Doubts should be attended to because of the following:-
- Problems which if not attended to on time snowball into intractable ones ruining many a lives. It is synonymous with ‘A Stitch in Time Saves Nine’.
- Worries are like termite pests which eat our entire system from within if no anti-termite is used within timeframe.
I have penned down two poems titled PROBLEM & WORRY. Kindly comment. I love your comments for self-improvement.
A life bereft of problem is a life bereft of creativity,
No problem to solve means nothing in life to look for,
Life in essence, is a continuous journey with a lot of activity,
Every step of the ladder of the life which counts,
Sometimes we slip but zeal to step up must not cease.
Mathematic problems can be made easy and solved
With the time-tested formulae, times without number,
But daily life problems have no laid down forms or norms.
Problem like Picador fight has to be resorted,
To weaken the problem into pieces,
Peace-meal resolution brings ease and peace,
Evincing of recovery if bogged down,
By the pestering and knotty problem at hand.
Problem, if left unresolved, becomes a pestering sore,
Resulting in resentment festered in mind and spirit.
Nature of problem is contagious like flue,
If left to itself, unattended and untracked,
It adds on and piles up by making kinship
With similar other stonewalling maladies
Becoming unwieldy and finally macabre ghost
Haunting day and day out.
When confronted with problem
Faith in our Creator and in our inner resolve is a must
Tackle it with a sculptor’s touch
Who chisels the uneven lump of marble into fine statue.
A worry for a work not expected to be finished,
A worry for not reaching the destined place,
On time and losing thyself in the bargain,
Beginning something with a heavy heart,
For the end result,
Worries for not meeting targets,
Worry - consequence of excessive consciousness,
Brings in its wake less confidence,
A self-created notion,
That whatever you’ll put your hand on,
Will go bust, though, that belief may be unfounded,
Too much concern for expressions,
In various ways, engendering self-consciousness,
An exaggerated sense,
Egged with excessive dose,
Of Ego and its appeasement,
Self-importance, others, beings just on the fringe,
A man on crucial mission,
An over-ambitious one,
Aspiring over-reach to the stars in the universe,
Every bump and turn in life,
Results into still more worry in turn,
Worry for riches and not meeting standards set for thyself,
Tension goes upstream,
Rationality takes back seat,
Confidence takes a downslide,
Here the harbinger of hope is,
The thought that thee is not the doer,
Belief that Creator’s presence will kill worries head on,
When end result is not thought of,
But action holds prominence,
Only action, with His Gentle Touch,
Will make huge difference,
And infuse immense confidence,
A first step in success of any mission under the sun,
Knowing less about the limitations,
Of a being,
It is akin to worrying,
Of a hen for its eggs to be hatched,
If initially, results are not on expected lines,
Should be left to His wish,
Which will prove to be a game changer,
Seemingly, a solution to our vexing problem,
By axing the element of worry from our midst,
For a better present,
A worriless course for a bump less road,
For smooth sailing and healthy living,
An egoless trail,
Tailor-made by His Grace.
SINCERITY IN OUR ACTIONS
Sincerity of purpose is one of the best positive qualities of an individual. Sincere dealings may be in our homes, in our workplace, in our day to day dealings with our peer groups, with formal and informal interactions, etc. If we are sincere in our actions then we need not care about the results of our actions. Sincere actions are self-rewarding and can be attested at all situations.
A sincere person always thinks the welfare of others over his own. The prime-movers for this fellow are uprightness and honesty attached. Temptations have no place in his / her scheme of things. In fact that person is flawless in his behaviour and is self-realized one. Similarly, that person gives more credence to others’ needs and aspirations rather than his / her own needs.
A person whose work ethics is cemented with sincerity as one of the main constituents will never aim for result of his actions. To act is his religion and then forget everything.
There are some people who have selfish motives as a prime -movers in getting jobs done through other means than legitimate. Much of the corruption that pervades in the society today is due to self-centred approach that we adopt in our lives. We attach too much emphasis on ‘I, my, me’ and less of ‘ours’.
A sincere person have the following characteristics that guide him / her in life:-
• Action Oriented Policy in life. A sincere person never confines himself to theory, he / she believes in action that too positive actions with good implications / bearings on the society in general.
• Sincerity Helps in Self Realization. By adopting sincere approach in life, that person never is misled and follows principles which purify his body off negativities thus paving the way to tap reservoir of latent energy dormant in the system.
• Honest and Sincere Approach. That person never puts off things because sincere one has his priorities fixed. His approach may be enmeshed with some unpredictable difficulties initially yet ultimately will always be vindicated.
• Ready for Action when Action is Really Needed. Honest and sincere person never procrastinates if there is a need of a help to be rendered.
• Sincere person never aspire for material possessions, rather, whatever he ekes through his present capabilities that person is satisfied.
• Greed, rancour, selfish motive does not touch such person in any way.
• Sincere person does not aspire for self-respect but respect follows the person due to positive approach in life.
• Quality of Equanimity. A sincere person always baths in peace both in bad and good situations.
With this intention in mind, I have penned down a poem titled SINCERITY, kindly go through and offer your comments. Your comments are the source of my inspiration to go further.
Truth unclothed is sincerity,
Its ingredients are godliness, realism and purity,
Sincere person is married to piety,
Who, for truth’s sake, will sacrifice everything,
To keep a word he gives without misgiving,
Also, is the one who for truth’s sake,
Will never compromise on ideas he holds dear,
That is why he is held dear by others everywhere,
And by extension our Creator Loves Sincere the Most ever and ever.
Greed touches him not,
Swayed by any external influences naught,
Hot and cold, happiness and sadness has do not touch,
Maintains equanimity in situations all,
Showiness trembles where he ventures,
Spreads fragrance by his presence.
His actions and reactions exhibit harmony,
Rational are his emotions with no tinge of vanity,
Passionately he wins every being with his sugariness,
He gives words and sticks to these,
That is why his words are trusted by low and highs,
Consciously, he is his own master to the area he surveys,
Is not dictated by anyone crossing his ways,
Believes in the dictum, ‘charity begins at home’.
Cleanses his conscious daily like one brooms a room,
Sermons others not,
But follows high-quality principles without qualms,
His best deeds are the ones which are loved by others,
Divorced from inner conflicts,
His body and soul work in tandem,
For a cause held dear by his conscience,
Rich in integrity and abundant in intelligence,
Holds his head high in the comity of people,
With patience and tolerance plentiful,
His sincerity is an open book with little secrecy,
Easily to be read by anybody who tries,
Abundance in essential sincerity, physical sincerity and spiritual sincerity,
He is more near to ONE ABOVE than anyone could ever conjecture.
We have to perform our multifarious functions in our lives. Axiomatically, it is not that we always meet with success in our endeavours. More often than not, we may have to weather many a storms while accomplishing tasks. Wise people just continue transacting their assigned tasks without let or hindrance. Failure at some point of time or other does not shake their resolve to continue still further. One failure is a stepping stone for these fellows to make still more efforts to fructify their efforts. Such people are the example, for others to follow.
Life is not a bed of roses always. Sometimes, we act but our actions are not as successful as ought to be. In other times, a little effort bears fruits for us. It is a travesty of face in our lives which should never be forgotten. It has also been seen that while we fail, we lose confidence altogether. People with strong determination do not lose heart, but make concerted efforts to catch up and with the grace of Almighty God come out unscathed.
It has also been experienced that some people just lose themselves while facing adverse results and go to the limit of committing the sin of self-destruction by adopting shortcuts of forgetting their worries by falling into the prey / trap of various addictions. These shortcuts to forget the worries just compound their worries. Such people ultimately end up losing their everything under the sun including their families, friend circle and other well-wishers still further. Losing our love ones, due to our faults means losing every hope to live tranquilly. For such people, JOURNEY OF LIFE just ends partly due to their internal conflicts and partly due to external factors beyond their control.
Following aspects need to be kept in mind while travelling the bumpy paths of our life’s JOURNEY ahead:-
- End of Road is not the End of Journey. It should never be forgotten that one failure in life should not deter us to continue still further till we become successful ultimately.
- Self-Realization. A self-realized person is the one who knows his / her stronger and weaker areas. That person dives deep / delves in his / her internal self and exploits the reservoir of huge energy dormant in their system. This sort of a person maintains equanimity in weal and woe.
- Faith in our Creator. Whenever an adverse situation knocks our door, we ought to seek our Creator assistance. With right attitude and sincerity at our command, He will surely steer clear of boat. Also, faith in Him creates faith in ourselves.
- Self-Discipline. A person who does not have discipline in his / her life just is not able to go ahead in the Journey of Life. That person curses his fate for every adversity that befalls him / her but never introspects that that situation is his / her own creation. Nobody should be held responsible for our state of affairs. Self-disciplined individual just passes the tests of time in his Journey ahead without any hurdles.
- Challenges ought to be Challenged. We have the shining example of our young cricketer YUVI who defied / challenged even as debilitating disease as cancer with his personal resolve and confidence in himself and his Creator. On the other hands, if we just acquiesce to challenges that come in the journey of our lives, we just lose heart to go further and end our journey of life. Face the life with a Courage:
When people are falling like nine-pins around ye unsung
Muster courage to hold on till the last drop
For somebody is required to pick up the fallen pals.
When ye fathom you are right
But hard-boiled truth dawns, you are otherwise
Accept that truth with courage
And put your ‘right’ to tests
Thou not stand on ceremony
It will inevitably isolate you from the rests.
When encircled in the web of uncertainty
In us, a part of overall order of things
Have courage to accept to accept the good words
Of anybody betwixt
Embrace that rightly to free thee out of a fix.
Whilst travelling in unknown land
Finding your fellow being in tattered attire and in pain
Muster courage to know his state
Mitigate his suffering – if you can
If not, few kind words will cost though nothing.
O, Lord, shower thy blessings, we are in dire need
So that we are courageous to blot out
Disparity from humanity based on caste, colour and creed.
- Life’s Journey is based on the Principle of Jointmanship. In our life’s journey ahead, we just whine that our of point of view has not been given credence. Imagine, are we accommodating others’ point of view? Our views are dearest to us while expecting much from others. Others needs and aspirations have no place in our scheme of things. It should never be forgotten that fastidious ones are isolated. Much of our differences in day to day lives; in our homes, amongst our peer group, society in general are due to this reason. If we want to make the journey of our life smooth, we shall have to be accommodative. It has to be a jointmanship venture. Hackneyed sermons have to be discarded.
With this intension in mind, I have written a poem titled LIFE’S JOURNEY, kindly go through. I solicit your comments because your points make indelible impact on me and motivate me to go on.
JOURNEY OF LIFE
Every one navigates the part of distance in life,
As apportioned by our CREATOR,
Some fail to negotiate even an inch,
And merge with Him earlier than expected,
Some are stuck amidst pain plentiful,
Some exit without succour from any quarter,
Some lay a hand on margins and perish,
Some are left asunder by the whirlwinds of chance,
Some swayed by the unwieldy winds of time,
Time, which does not wait for mighty or light,
Some go in circles whole of their life span,
Confusion writ large on their faces with weary pain,
Remain back-pedaling from where started with little gain.
Lively are those who defy hurdles and act,
And overcome their tasks,
With a missionary zeal,
To strike the goal post of life,
With a bang in style.
Life befriend those,
Who do not stop the life’s journey,
When meeting with bumpy ride,
They dare take the bull of life by the horns,
And win the day with stumbling blocks galore,
They make the bumpy road blocks as their stepping stone,
And win laurels against all odds,
For a journey ahead - acting here and now,
Life’ Journey covered yesterday,
Will add up today’s one,
And make difference in your journey ahead,
The one where you set your foot presently this moment,
Yesterday’s endeavours will add up in today’s actions,
And will benefit tide over tomorrow’s travels
And provide thee a giant stride ahead with pride.
IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS ALWAYS
Ignorance is the darkness which could be dispelled by the light of knowledge. Evolution is a natural phenomenon. From the very inception, individuals have evolved since stone- age partly through personal experiences and partly through gaining from experiences of the fellow beings. This has not happened in isolation.
Change has to be accepted. Anything that becomes a law of the land has to be accepted as such. Those who accept these laws, are accepted in the society as law abiding citizens and those who transgress these are punished accordingly. Excuses of IGNORANCE of a particular law will not absolve the concerned person of the transgression and its culpability.
As civilization progresses, knowledge in various fields have also been evolved. From birth to various stages of our lives, we make concerted efforts to learn and dispel ignorance. The sources of knowledge are: family, peer groups, schools, colleges, universities and other formal Institutions. Then there are informal institutions like temples, churches and other religious Institutions which also disseminate information and enhance our awareness pool and in the process remove our IGNORANCE on wide variety of subjects.
Ignorance of rules and regulations means, remain contravening these with impunity. It may be intentional many a times! The mores of good behaviour are essential in order to live in the society peacefully, respecting/accommodating the others’ viewpoints too. Ignorance of the rules hardly means our faults could be condoned.
NATURAL LAWS, like keeping our environs pollution free, planting more trees, up-keeping the green cover, keeping the air pollution to permissible level and restricting noise pollution et al. If we do not obey the natural laws and show our IGNORANCE, can MOTHER NATURE condone our faults? No, not all? You can escape the society’s laws but not breaking the Natural Laws. Her retribution would be severe. We are witnessing these in the forms of tsunamis, blizzards, earthquakes, etc with ferocity. No ignorance helps in breaking NATURAL LAWS.
With this intention in mind, I have penned down a poem, titled, IGNORANCE. Kindly appraise and offer your comments.
Mother Nature works with variety of golden rules,
Which, we humans are constrained to follow,
To the book without bias,
Come in Its path?
And become its ultimate prey,
In forms of tsunami, blizzards, et al,
No excuse of IGNORANCE can come as the solace.
Ignorance of the rules in the book of Laws of the Land,
If thou break by thy whim and caprice,
And when caught thee have to pay a heavy price,
Here again, ignorance of Law holds no defence,
No escape route accepted of not knowing rules,
Excuses offer no execution of natural justice,
O our Dearest Creator,
We beg for your succour,
Help eradicate the DARKNESS from our midst,
With Thy LIGHT,
So that we learn to respect Nature’s Laws,
And the Laws of the Land in which we live.
SELFISHNESS VERSUS SELFLESSNESS
In life we come across people who know how their bread could better be buttered. They may even steal / borrow / forcibly take the butter from somebody else to put on their bread thus leaving the hapless owner hungry!
There are people who are bedevilled with excessive lust, greed and anger. These three negative traits come in the way of imbibing divine qualities like LOVE, TRUTH, GOODNESS et al. Nearness to these negative qualities takes us farthest from ULTIMATE TRUTH: GOD.
Whenever man is tempted to take something which legitimately is not his, it is called covetousness due to his selfish nature. He is carried away by his own impulses without caring for others. By doing so, he injures the society for his own wellbeing. In his views, his self-existence is more than the existence of others. A person with selfish motives always considers his interests uppermost and for getting those interests satisfied he would go all out, taking others’ lives even! Is this not happening every day? He transgresses codes of human behaviour, which regulates the behaviour of humans. No power of reason can transform his self-centred approach for aggrandisement of his desires. He is carried away by his own impulses and temptations without carrying for the society at large. In other words, it could be said that for getting his selfish ends fulfilled, that persons adopts all sorts of means / stratagems in his command.
In our daily lives, we are witness to selfishness vividly:-
• Family Members working at cross purposes to garner cheap points bordering on selfish motives browbeating others in the bargain.
• SOCIAL MEDIA working with the sole aim of enhancing TRP at any cost without thinking about the consequences of the scoops on the hapless victim if the story is incorrect.
• SOME PRESENT DAY CRICKETERS spoiling the gentlemen’s game by their greed not just bordering on selfishness but immorality; from any source!
• Some religious priests following baser selfish methods to earn name and fame for themselves, sometimes going against the teachings of religious philosophy.
Need of the hour is to quaff the nectar of selflessness from Divine cup. Selflessness qualities which are good for self and for the society at large are to be adopted in our daily lives. Efforts should also be made to shun demon like, baser selfish qualities. It is the conscience which should be made responsible to be on the guard for maintaining and imbibing selfless attitudes for our personal gain spiritually.
A class beyond others,
Whose reflection in the mirror of life,
Exhibit vividly classy clear image,
Without blur or blot,
With ease, we grasp their selflessness,
Deeply ingrained in them is greatness in immense measure,
They mix with the surrounding so easily,
That even the sturdy bestow them their coveted place,
Will jump to action when his men need – without demur,
Ever full of verve and dynamism,
To lead the battle of life from front,
Selflessness is the service they render for others,
Without exception without expectation,
Not by exertion of pressure at command,
But by gentle persuasion,
Service with a smile with nil expectation,
They are responsible for critical work of the day,
Together with his men they accomplish the job at hand,
Use heart and soul to lead their mind,
Selfless feel the people’s pulse fully,
What they actually need the most,
They take credit or discredit,
What their men do or not do,
They are where the action is,
Not at a place where rewards are disbursed,
Listen to what your men want from them,
Not what you require from them,
Those who work for us deserve our the best,
Heart and soul put together helps to lead from the front,
Being selfless is hardest task, tough call,
Never say die for anything under the sun,
Weaklings are the faint in heats,
Selfish spurn challenges,
Wanting reward for doing little,
Deception is their hallmark,
To take credits for others laurels,
Without accepting any blame for wrong doing,
A PRESSURE COOKER EXISTENCE
Even the pressure cooker, we use in our homes releases pressure, when extra pressure is built in it, but we tend not to de-pressure our system. The rat rate just continues nonetheless. All the built in pressures remain dormant in our body, in the bargain, we are awarded with various debilitating ailments with disastrous implications.
In our daily lives, there are so many pulls and pressures. Some of these pressures are created by our high EXPECTATIONS. Others are due to the environments in which we live. In both these cases, how we can come out unscathed, depends solely on us. More often than not, we have been taken in / influenced by the outer glitter of the world at large. We too want to be a part of that glitter (demonstrative effect) and try fructifying those forgetting our own self, our latent strengths and weaknesses. We do not reckon our present financial position, responsibilities / duties that we have towards our families and other related functions which are entrusted to us.
The DEMONSTRATIVE EFFECT, being as it is, we tend to compare our status with others and want to reach to that status anyhow. In the first place, we try to reach that Al Dorado by putting severe pressure on ourselves by working round the clock even without consideration that our body requires some rest for rejuvenation. The physical and mental strains thus generated, lead to various diseases like hypertension / high blood pressure, becoming obese and pressure related diseases due to less movement, and finally our immune system goes bust. Then there is always a likelihood of adverse effects on our mental state when we fail to pass the litmus test of status acquisition, our concerted efforts notwithstanding. We earn various diseases like depression and others psychological ailments due to not meeting our expectations that we have set for ourselves.
Another way of fulfilling the ‘demonstrative effect’ is by adopting ulterior methods, not legitimate ones / furtively pursued, become prey to fear psychosis of being caught in the act. This hideous fear too leads to the similar adverse results to physical and mental affects.
If the individual concerned is caught by the law enforcing agencies, that individual will have to face unpredictable future putting at naught all the furtive acts and also name and fame in the process. Many a lives and families have been ruined due to these tendencies.
It has also been seen that Work Place and Home are responsible for creating PRESURE in a big way.
- Pressure at Work Place. In the work place people are assigned various tasks as per the charter of duties. These tasks are to be done in time bound manner putting extra pressure. If the targets assigned are not met, the concerned persons are likely to be severely reprimanded, may face demotions or their increment stopped resulting in increased pressure.
- Pressure at Home. Pressure built in work place gets into the system of the person concerned and may explode at home when home based pressures also mount.
Implications of pressure cooker existence are:-
- Adverse effect on both body and mind.
- Family fabric is impacted.
- Official functioning adversely affected.
- Social life disturbed.
- No forward march in spirituality through Self Realization.
If we continue leading a mechanical life by leading a Pressure Cooker existence, and do not CHANGEwhen CHANGE is woefully needed then sure enough, Mother Nature will CHANGE us for the worse.
With this intention in mind, I have peened down a poem entitled CHANGE. Kindly go through and comment. I solicit your comments since these spur me to write more.
Whilst the lot around is ominous and dark,
Trust one day, brightness will dawn.
Every unexciting autumn changes into enchanting spring,
And every dark cloud has thin snow-white coating.
Wishy-washy life will give place to hope,
And blooming life, hopefully, will come hopping
Infusing verve and vitality in every being.
Change that brings misery in its wake ,
Tests our will power and what it takes,
To live to tell the tale.
Spiritual Change brings one near to Almighty God,
Negative mind-set negates everything possessed,
And may deprive a person of his sanity,
Resulting in loss of face and self-purity,
Ageing brings changes since egg in womb once gets fertile,
Passing the added stages of life,
Transiting through ups and downs of time,
And to the end by leaving the body inert.
And wait for better days for a change,
Change in the river course due to nature’s fury,
Takes away the land with all its fertility,
Changing the geographical limit of a place,
And with it, the history attached with its virulent current,
To bottomless confines of an ocean.
