SELF  INTROSPECTION 

 

I was Cycling this morning and I noticed a person about half a mile ahead. 

I could guess he was Cycling a little slower than me and that made me feel good, 
I said to myself I will try catch up with him.

So I started Cycling faster and faster. Every block, I was gaining on him a little bit. 
After just a few minutes I was only about 100 feet behind him, 
so I really picked up the pace and pushed myself. 
I was determined to catch up with him.

Finally, I did it! I caught up and passed him. Inwardly I felt very good. "I beat him". 

Of course, he didn't even know we were racing. 

After I passed him, 
I realized I had been so focused on competing against him that 
I had missed my turn to my house .

I had missed the focus on my inner peace, 
I missed to see the beauty of greenery around, 
I missed to do my inner soul searching meditation, 
and in the needless hurry feet slipped from the paddle twice or thrice and might have hit the sidewalk and broken a limb.

It then dawned on me, isn't that what happens in life when we focus on competing with 
co-workers, neighbours, 
friends, 
family, 
trying to outdo them 
or trying to prove that we are more successful 
or more important and in the bargain 
we miss on our happiness within our own surroundings?

We spend our time and energy running after them and we miss out on our own paths to our given destination. 

The problem with unhealthy competition is that it's a never ending cycle.

There will always be somebody ahead of you, 
someone with a better job, 
nicer car, 
more money in the bank, 
more education, 
a prettier wife, 
a more handsome husband, 
better behaved children, 
better circumstances and 
better conditions etc.
 
But one important realisation is that 'You can be the best that you can be, when you are not competing with anyone.'

Some people are insecure because they pay too much attention to 
what others are, 
where others are going, 
wearing and driving, what others are talking.  

Take whatever you have, 
the height, the weight and personality.  Accept it and realize, that you are blessed. Stay focused and live a healthy life. 

There is no competition in Destiny. Each has his own.

Comparison AND Competition  is the thief of JOY. 
It kills the Joy of Living your Own Life.

Run your own Race that leads to Peaceful, Happy Steady Life.
😇

“Khusrau darya prem ka, ulti wa ki dhaar, 
Jo utra so doob gaya, jo dooba so paar. 

English Translation:

Oh Khusrau, the river of love
Runs in strange directions. 
One who jumps into it drowns, 
And one who drowns, gets across.” 
― Amir Khusrau,

“The eye through which I see God

is the same eye

through which God sees me;

my eye

and God's eye

are one eye,

one seeing, one knowing, one love.” 
 Meister Eckhart,

 

 

 

will soothe you and heal you,
I will bring you roses.
I too have been covered with thorns.” 
 Rumi

Rumi

 

 

 

“Religion is nothing but institutionalized mysticism.

The catch is,

mysticism does not lend itself to institutionalization.

The moment we attempt to organize mysticism,

we destroy its essence.

Religion, then,

is mysticism

in which the mystical has been killed.

Or, at least diminished.” 
 Tom Robbins

Just as a candle cannot burn without fire,

men cannot live without a spiritual life.

Buddha

 

 

As we advance in life

it becomes more and more difficult,

but in fighting the difficulties

the inmost strength of the heart is developed.     

Vincent Van Gogh

 

 

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours. 

 

 

 

Karma comes after everyone eventually.

You can't get away with screwing people over your whole life,

I don't care who you are.

What goes around comes around.

That's how it works.

Sooner or later

the universe will serve you

the revenge that you deserve.

Jessica Brody

 

 

Don't waste time on revenge.

The people who hurt you

will eventually face their own karma.

Author Unknown

 

 

You are free to choose,

but you are not free

from the consequence of your choice.

Author Unknown

 

 

Whatever you give to life, it gives you back.

Do not hate or harm anybody.

The hatred and wickedness

which comes out from you

will someday come back to you.

Love others.

And love will comeback to you.

Author Unknown

 

Every action has equal and opposite reaction.

This is law of the universe and spares none.

Wrong done and injustice inflicted

is paid back in the same coin.

No one has escaped justice of the universe.

It is only a matter of time.

STAYING POSITIVE does not mean that things will turn out okay. Rather it is knowing that YOU will be okay no matter how things turn out.

No matter what you're going through, there's a light at the end of the tunnel and it may seem hard to get to it but you can do it and just keep working towards it and you'll find the positive side of things.

Demi Lovato

 

 

An attitude of positive expectation is the mark of the superior personality.      

Brian Tracy

 

When it rains, it pours? but soon, the sun shines again. Stay positive. Better days are on their way.

"WONDERFUL MESSAGE"

Who is your life partner ?

Mom / Dad
Husband /wife
Son / Daughter

Your real life partner

Once your body stops responding no one is with you.

You and your body
stay together from
Birth till Death.

What you do to your

responsibility and
that will come back
to You. 

The more you care
for your body, the
more your body will
care for You. 

What you eat,
What you do for being Fit,
How u deal with
stress
How much rest you

Will decide how your body gonna respond.


Remember your

    • delhi sikhs are idiots they are now asking sirsa to demand Chandni Chowk to shaheedi Chowk , I said to them the only reason people remember Chandi Chowk is through the Mahan Shahadat of gursikhs and Guru Sahib , they are too dense to realise that removing the name is also removing the marker of the history .
    • Guest daas guest singh
      Yea they r a huge threat/nuksaan to kheti .But why do u think god made spears(bhaale/barchche) for.For killing jangli soor (obviously,like duuuuuhhh??) lol. And yea they do attack ppl,are quite fierce actually ,with their tusks and all can really kill a person(spoiler alert:they do) But they shud be tasty af especially with all da charbi so,chatka them singhon .looooooooollll. "they always hog on the kheti maan " (another successful pun by me) 
    • my cousin took by the back of a "modern restaurant"  and massive bulks of meat i think it was sheep and goats were hanging out in the open behind the restaurant with swarms of around flys all over it.  my thia took me to a chicken farm where they are being raised to slaughter and there were 100s all cramped in small places. Most the chickens in cages ready to kill are loosing their feathers and look like they have disease.   men pissing out in the open is also common sight in the urban areas.   luckily none of this has started happening in the pinds yet 
    • i said the same thing they need to round these dogs up and kill them!  they are disgusting and rabbid and iv seen to many shagging in the middle of the streets!       near my dads pind theres a place where they take dead cows/buffalo and skin them and the dogs around there are like fcking hyenas,  that area has now become a no go zone.    people are really scared to these dogs.      At night they run around in packs that are 30/40 strong and howl all night.  i went for a walk with my cousin sister at night with a pet dog   and around 10 dogs started running towards us and barking   luckily the pet dog was bigger and intimidated them,  while this was going on we walked of really fast and got away.   wild hogs/boars are another problem,  the wild pigs actually eat the dogs which is great but they have attacked people too.   I went to my thias fields and we saw pig footprints in the mitti.    
    • This guy says, Gurbani says you will reap what you do.  Gurbani does say this but Gurbani also says on this topic, you will do as Vaheguru commands....nothing is in your hand, Vaheguru does all.  Gurbani also says on this topic, walk on the path of Gurmat.  To understand the concept, you will reap what you sow. The two connected topics also have to be explained without contradicting the first concept. The example he provides does not incorporate all three  concepts and provide a Gurmat answer.  This parrot is the blind man touching the trunk of an elephant and saying it's a tree trunk. The parrot is saying we write our destiny.   But this is not what Gurbani is saying.  Gurbani is saying you will follow the will of Vaheguru command.  How does he explain Sri Guru Arjun Dev ji being punished by the ruler at the time.  When Sri Guru Arjun Dev ji did nothing wrong? According to,  you will reap what you sow, the 40 mukta were punished on the battlefield because they went to do a good thing and fight evil, but they lost their lives.   Losing your life is a negative outcome and not a positive outcome. The 40 mukta studied for the test and they failed because they lost their lives. Also this parrot is changing the language around the 40 mukta by saying 40 singhs. He doesn't  want to say mukta because that would mean their is an after life and these clowns don't believe in an afterlife.  The chota sahibzaade also lost their lives for doing a good deed.  How come the good people doing good deeds are losing their lives (failing the test) and people doing bad things are not losing their lives?  Clearly the concept you will reap what you sow is not so simple in Gurbani.  Also before clown college says passing the test means the 40 mukta and chota sahibzaade stood up to tyrants.   This would be the wrong analogy because passing the test is the end result (living, but the 40 mukta and chota sahibzaade didn't live on) and answering the question right is to stand up to the tyrants.
