Change the meaning (IM 782)

Everything that happens to us has different meaning: the one that we benefit from and the one we don’t. There is always a choice for us to choose the meaning. The meaning that makes us stronger and better is the one we should go for and ignore the one that makes us weak and disrespectful….

Tolerant and strictness (IM 781)

There is a old saying that goes- “one should be tolerant with others and strict to themselves.” But we see the other way around most of the time. Being tolerant with others requires empathy, patience and temperance and being strict with ownself means being self-disciplined and staying in accord with the principles. PS: Happy Thanksgiving…

Victory (IM 779)

The survival is possible with the victory which we can sense from our evolution. Darwinism and Lamarckism validates that we are evolving because of our victory towards something or somebody. Churchill said, “Without victory there is no survival.” The victory I’m talking about here is not related towards the biology but the present day life….

Education: Do we know what it really is? (IM 774)

This morning I had a conversation with one of my friend regarding the education system we currently have. This made me think that most of us are completely unaware of the term education. Let’s dig in the word ‘education’ : The word education came from three different root words: “educare,” which means to bring up,…

We see the things as we are (IM 771)

What we do everyday becomes a habit and we are the reflection of what we do everyday. Based on your past experiences we make assumptions and conclusions on many things including our ourselves and our potentials. The way we talk to others or to ourselves reveals our character. The way we deal with different situations…

A passionate mind (IM 761)

I’m intrigued by the ability of the single mind to change the entire world. From Marcus Aurelius to Thomas Edison to Mahatma Gandhi to present day successful entrepreneurs, they all have changed the entire world in some way. The started with no money or technology  but with passion and perseverance. There is nothing more powerful…

Popular vs Good (IM 749)

They are different… What is popular might not be good and what is good might not be popular. We need to pick one because picking both will result in failure and cost us our time. We need to chose right option and we can’t have both because when we choose one we will ultimately loose…

Suffering: What is it? (IM 748)

According to Buddhism, all suffering is originated from the attachment to something. Suffering arises from craving. They always insist that the person who craves something always suffer. It’s so true in today’s world, as the rate of depression is increasing and the suicidal rate is elevating; the fundamental reason for this is not achieving the…

Accepting the destiny (IM 744)

It doesn’t really matter what we expect from life, but rather what life expects from us. We need to stop thinking about the meaning of life , and instead think of ourselves as those who are questioned by life-daily and hourly and execute based on it. These executions differ from person to person and from…

We’re all fools (IM 723)

Tweet  Ray Bradbury  once said, “We’re all fools, all the time.  It’s just we’re a different kind each day. We think, I’m not a fool today. I’ve learned my lesson. I was a fool yesterday but not this morning. Then tomorrow we find out that, yes, we were fool yesterday too. I think the only way…
