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, 
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.” 





“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.




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.

Who is your life partner ?

Mom / Dad
Husband /wife
Son / Daughter

Your real life partner
is Your Body

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
body is 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
How much rest you
give to it.. 
Will decide how your body gonna respond.

Remember your
body is the only
permanent address
where You live. 

Your body is your asset / liabilty, which no one else can share.

Your body is your
You are Your real 
life partner. 

Be Fit  forever👍🏼

    • Funny thing is it's true, yet as I've mentioned on previous occasions, it's trying to guide someone onto that path when they aren't ready to make that leap of faith. The Christian tries to bridge that gap by being personable, relatable, and sympathetic (whether it's genuine care or a ploy for the purposes of recruitment is debatable), understanding that for the vast majority of people with issues, the afflicted just want to unburden themselves and be heard before even thinking about making that next step to actively responding to the problems plaguing them. There's no to very little of this approach in our community, because we generally lack those traits in our demeanour as a people (although the younger generations are better in this respect), and this attitude seems to be even more significant in religious circles, which is madness because of all the areas where compassion and understanding should be in evidence, the spiritually floundering or just the generally forlorn and disenfranchised should be made to feel they're being listened to, not dismissed with a course of treatment that's abstract at best.
    • I think showing vulnerability can be problematic because it is seen as a weakness.  Showing vulnerability is a largely a female trait because women emote more as it is part of their make up. It does not work the same for men because we tend to prioritise being rational and our nature is to solve problems.  But if you need help there are people that can help you.
    • I totally agree with above quote.   There is nothing wrong with the program listed. It is normal to see Amrit sanchar programs in various jathabandis. Using same argument method, tomorrow Someone will be saying.. it is not ok for taksal jathabandi to stamp on santhiyaa programs.    Rather than finding mistakes in any jathbandees, we need to work together for panth’s benefits despite of having few differences. 
    • Dharam seems like more of a verb to me. Like truth in action.  It's one thing to believe exercise makes you fit it's another thing to actually train and get the benefit. 
    • well I wouldn't know. Nor am I amritdhari nor am I married. But I would expect that love and lust are two different things even when it comes to physical human relationship. Right? Or maybe both persons in relationship have to be at a high level to differentiate between lust and love and act accordingly.?  and if we are on this topic,  is it not lust to use a natural mechanism, that is meant for procreation, to get the pleasure, and at the end simply pull out (sorry for being explicit). Is there a difference between making love and fu**ing?
