#AtoZChallenge: Z is For Zest for Life

#AtoZChallenge: Z is For Zest for Life

 Zest for life?

It is a positive approach towards the life that moves life with excitement and enthusiasm. Life will be just waiting for death if one loses it.  Hence, the zest is everything that makes the life beautiful.  It comes from inner happiness. If you happy from inside, you will find tremendous enthusiasm in your every activity. Discovering that inner happiness of life is the most important thing to bring back the zest of childhood.

Zen of living:

If you look at the children, you’ll find they have tremendous energy for everything. They do every single activity with full of enthusiasm. They are so energetic that parents have to struggle a lot to make them sleep. They do so because they can involve themselves totally in any activity. When the play, their total beings are involved in playing. When they paint, they invest their all energy in painting. They have no worries of future, they have no regret of past and they have no fear to lose anything. They are only living in the present.  Hence, no energy is wasted in thinking about past and future and total energy is engaged in the present.

Living in the present with full of consciousness is the Zen of living. The Zen living is the key to finding the zest in life. When you know to celebrate today, you’ll find real happiness in everything.

Picture quote on Zest for life.

How to find the Zest for life?

Do those things that make you happy unless you won’t find enthusiasm in those works. Love the activity which you are doing unless you couldn’t invest your full energy within it. It’s very important to choose the work that you can do from your heart or try to find joy from the work that makes you bore.  Suppose, you love to write, but you have to do a job that keeps continuing your monetary flow and you don’t like to do that job. I’ll say either you find some interesting things from that job or change it. Otherwise, the frustration comes from that work, will spoil all your enthusiasms of life.

The zest comes from inside. You cannot find that when you feel low. So, try to find your happiness in your every work. The zest will follow that and makes your life exciting and youthful at any of your age.

#AtoZChallenge: Y is For Youthfulness

#AtoZChallenge: Y is For Youthfulness

Youthfulness is the life force, which you cannot be determined by ages. An 80 years old man can be youthful if he still finds the life is exciting as it was in his youth. It is a quality that people have in their youth. The youth, when the world looks like very colorful and charming, when the eyes are full of the dreams, the heart is full of love, when the mind knows to explore the single things of life and does not fear to take a risk for any enjoyment, is always exciting. It knows to enjoy the present as much as possible never bores one in life.

When such qualities of youth one still enjoy at any age of life (after crossing youth), he or she must be youthful at that age. Hence, youthfulness is not measured by the ages. You can enjoy this youthfulness even at the age of 60 if you still look the world with wonder and if you still don’t get tired from learning.

The habit of learning is the secret of youthfulness. Keep this habit as long as you live. You’ll be youthful and evergreen throughout the life.

youthfulness
Quote on youthfulness.

People are trying to remain young and fear to lose the youth. But, no anti aging cream can stop the ages. It is growing as the rule of life. The fear of losing youth stops them from accepting the ages with joy. Thus, they miss both, the happiness of youth and the peace of old age.  If you want to enjoy both with the times, keep learning. Age is only a number if you hold your youth in your mind.

Don’t waste your old age in the nostalgia of youth. Involve yourself in the new activities; learn new things, modern technologies or the thing that you ever wanted to learn at your young age.  Age cannot be the constraint for anything if you alive with your youthfulness.

#AtoZChallenge: X is For X factor

#AtoZChallenge: X is For X factor

X factor is such exclusive quality of one that we cannot define by words. It is a thing which attracts the people most. Not everyone has such quality.  It is such quality that makes one different in the crowd. The character you often see in school, college, university and in the workplace also.

You may notice that somebody in a group is very popular. The whole class wants to be with him or her. His or her presence brings the color in the group. Everyone feel very cheerful with his presence. But, the fun is, nobody will say any specific reason why he or she like that guy or the girl, so much. It’s not their fault. It’s because the particular guy or the girl has such quality that is not expressed physically or emotionally. As the thing is out of our sense, we call it as X factor.

x factor
X is for X factor.

Generally, the great leaders or the masters has the quality of X factor.  Even, the particular quality plays a vital role in public relationships.

I think it is all about the positive vibes. The person, who has the X factor, emits some positive vibes that attract the people around him or her. The person must be joyful, happy and think good always. People want to do that. But, everyone cannot get that. When the person with the X factor emits this vibes, people around him or her and automatically they feel good. That is the reason why the people love to stay with the person of X factor.

Feel free to share your experience about the person, who carries X factor in your society. Please, share your link while commenting on the post (or not commenting on the post).

#AtoZChallenge: W is for Wound

#AtoZChallenge: W is for Wound

Wound:

Every wound has a scar. Every scar has a story. And the moral of that story is “Yes, still I’m living.” It doesn’t matter how many wounds you have.  But, which matters is whether you have found the story of it or not. The story is nothing but the wisdom.  The wisdom is knowing yourself.  The wound is like the window through which you can see yourself.  Rumi said, “The wound is where the light enters you.”  Light comes through the hole, where you got hurt, to light up the darkest part of you.  So, use that hole for introspection and recognize your strengths and weaknesses.

People have a tendency to escape from the pain.  Hence, they avoid touching the wound as it creates pain. But, the harsh truth is you cannot get happiness if you escape from pain. It’s because if you don’t heal your hurt, it will grow day by day and finally, it will ruin you. If you let your disease untreated, it spreads all over the body. In the same way, the unhealed wound will spread its pain all over the mind and you cannot enjoy the happiness of life.

wound
Quote on wound.

Introspection through the wound:

  • Introspection is the vital part of healing. You need to come out from the outside noise and make sometimes exclusively for yourself. 
  • You need to gain some courage to research on the past history of your injury. It is painful though you have to face that. Escaping from the pain is not the way of happiness.
  • As much as you analyze your pain and how did you get hurt by it, you will know yourself better than earlier.  You can recognize your weakness and mistakes. Learning from the mistake will mature you to move forward. When you commence moving ahead, the past will not trouble you again. Letting go will be easy for you, then. In this way,  wound open the window for wisdom and heal the pain for forever.

#AtoZChallenge: V is For Vibes

#AtoZChallenge: V is For Vibes

A vibe is the feeling that someone emits by his or her presence. Every emotion is energy.  When a person stays in some good or bad emotional stage, he or she emits his or her feeling,  unintentionally. The feeling has some vibrational frequencies. When the frequency resonates with the frequency of the opposite person, he or she feels good. This good feeling is positive vibes.

If you are an honest and always think positive, you will emit positive vibes. You don’t need any verbal communication or any attitudes to express that. It is an aura that emanates from your presence. Negative thinking or depressive states of mind gives off negative vibes. People always feel bad and uncomfortable when they come in touch with such person.

You must notice the effect of vibes in life. When you face any great leader, Guru, teacher or simply a good trainer for any of your courses, you feel highly energetic and gain confidence in the presence of that person. It’s because of the positive vibes that the person gives off.

On the other hand, you can experience negative frequencies from somebody’s touch. If somebody touches you with some bad intention, you feel uncomfortable with him or her. You cannot understand why you feel the touch is unwanted for you. But, you prefer to keep you away from that person.

Quotes on vibes
Vibes.

Everyone cannot receive the frequency of vibrations from some other person if the vibe is not so strong. One needs to be receptive to experience that. The receptiveness helps you to recognize the nature of the person. Realizing the frequencies leads to better understanding between the two individuals. In a relationship, understanding this signal, without verbal communication, plays the most important role.

The fun of transmitting the vibes is whatsoever frequency you emit to the universe,  it will give you back that similar frequency. If you give off the feeling of joy, or some other positive vibrations, you will be drawn off that frequency of vibrations from the universe. The same thing happens with the negative vibes.  So, stay happy and transmit your happiness to the universe.

#AtoZChallenge: U is For Uniqueness

#AtoZChallenge: U is For Uniqueness

The beauty of nature is its uniqueness.  Each thing of nature has its own beauty. We cannot compare the tranquillity of the river with the tidal waves of the ocean.  Everything is beautiful at its own place. If one thinks why the jasmine flowers are not blooming like the big and colorful Dalia that will be his or her highest stupidity.  We love Jasmine for its unique fragrance and white color. Dalia is so adorable to us for its unique types of colors.   Nature is so creative that we can find uniqueness at everywhere. This uniqueness is their individuality.

In the same way, existence is so creative that it creates us, exclusively. Everybody has some distinct qualities for those he or she is beautiful at his or her own place. But, we don’t know to value this uniqueness. We always try to copy other by ignoring our individuality. We are torturing our soul by comparing us with others and forget our exclusiveness. This comparison always makes us unhappy. Suppose, someone thinks he is inferior to others, it will be the cause of his misery.  On the other hand, if somebody thinks he is superior to anybody of his society, it will also bring misery to him. It is his ego, which thinks inferior or superior. And ego hurts.

Uniqueness
Osho’s quote on Uniqueness

When ego dissolves or when we stop comparing ourselves with others, individuality comes out. This is so beautiful that we can not stop ourselves from loving our own existence. When we begin to value our individuality, we can accept all our imperfections. Self-love starts from this acceptance.

We are exclusively unique at our own place. We don’t need to find out that uniqueness within ourselves. We just need to respect it. I am I, I cannot be you. In the same way, I cannot expect that you will be me or you will behave like me. We should value each other’s individuality.  This is the only way to accept others as they are.

#AtoZChallenge: T is For Trust

#AtoZChallenge: T is For Trust

Trust is like a thread that can be torn up at any moment. All the close and intimate relationships are standing on that single thread. Trusting somebody means, you are making yourself vulnerable to any attack. But, the dilemma is that you cannot build a relationship without this thread. Trust is a kind of thread that doesn’t know to bind one. In fact, this thread is like the thread of kite, which can fly all over the sky but it is rooted in the flier’s hand.

Trust always gives freedom. You cannot hold a handful of sand in your grip if you hold it, tightly. You need to cup your hand to stop it from trickling through the finger. In the same way, when you trust somebody, he or she feels some comfort that helps him or her to flourish well. That means, he or she can express himself or herself, spontaneously,   in that companionship. Trust can only give this home feeling comfort to the one whom you trust.  This is the base of each intimate relationship.

quote on trust
Trust.

On the other hand, when you have a faith on your partner, you feel a kind of relief that leads to an effortless relationship. You can enjoy the joy of an association when it is going easily without putting any hard effort. In short, an ideal company should be the place where you can relax, where you can express your emotions shamelessly, and where you don’t need to manipulate yourself. Manipulation is very hard work and tiring. Hence, the manipulated relationships or the relationships, where the people, involved in it, use masks cannot last for long or it cannot be an intimate union.  Thus, distrust or doubt is so painful that neither can you hold that union nor you can stay on that union.

It takes a time to build a trust in a relationship. But, it takes a moment to break all. When the individuals maintain clarity in their every action, the thread of trust becomes harder. Gloomy relationships, where the individuals always hide something from each other, create distrust or doubt. Doubt is a kind of thing that can ruin an empire of love. So, it’s better to clear your doubts without any hesitations when it comes to your mind.  It’s because a single doubt can asexually reproduce thousands of doubts and that is enough to break the thread of trust.

#AtoZChallenge: S is For Simplicity

#AtoZChallenge: S is For Simplicity

Everything depends on our thinking. If you think life is complicated, you’ll choose an intricate way of living. If you think life is simple, you must select simplicity in your life path.  In fact, most of us are living in a so complicated way that we forget the way of simple living. Even we often think like that, those, who are living with their simplicity, are foolish of this world. But, this so-called “foolish” can move the mountain.

“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains”- Steve Job

Why do we think life is complicated?

We make our life complicated. We think about others more than ourselves. We use our whole intellect and senses to judge others’ attitudes, actions, and behaviors. But, how can our small brain bear so many pressures? Life is very difficult to understand. We have so many duties, which we have to accomplish in this short life span. We are possessed to fulfil the expectations of our near and dear people. We have to reach out to our goal. We have to impress others to proof “I’m the best”. We have no time to think about us. We believe that the less important person in the world is “I, myself”. This belief is the root of all complications. Moreover, the huge concern of losing all in our life plays a great role to complicate our thoughts. So, we are always busy to protect those, which we have gained by this birth, and spending the sleepless night as a guard of our imaginary treasury.  But, the funny thing is we don’t know, actually, what is the real treasure of life. Above all, the ultimate fear that is the fear of death leads all the concerns of lives.

Simplicity in the children:

Simplicity lies within us. If you look at the children, you will see how much they enjoy their life. It’s all because of their simplicity. They have no headache to get to their goal. They have no obsession to please another. They do that, what they love to do. They don’t know to hide the truth with the well-decorated lies. They don’t bother to act according to their moods. They never concern about others perceptions think about them. They have no idea about death. Thus, they have no fear of death. This is their simplicity. This simplicity makes them so happy and cheerful.

 Simplicity is the secret:

So, it’s clear that simplicity comes from within not from outside. We lose this simplicity because of the complicated guidance. This intricate living makes our life so miserable that we have to run after the happiness. But, happiness comes from simplicity.

The simplicity of the children is inborn. They don’t have to achieve that. But, after living a “complex” life, we have to achieve the simplicity by our consciousness. We need to be awakened to revert back that clarity of childhood in our life.  And awakening is not a great deal. One has to focus on oneself more than another. One has to think about oneself more than anything in the world. It’s not the selfishness. It’s Self-love. If we allow growing that self-love, we will find love in everywhere. Love makes the life beautiful. It’s just like a relationship, which  becomes so simple and alluring by the touch of love. When you can realize yourself, you’ll understand all the complicated problem in a childlike way. This simple way of living will wipe out all your intricate beliefs, unnatural fear, and self-made miseries. Life becomes as simple as the child’s life. This childlike nature brings happiness. Thus, simplicity is the secret of happy life.

Conclusion:

Simplicity is a real treasure of life. If we can find it again,  we will bring back our natural happiness and serenity. This makes our living so stress-free that we can use our full life energy at any workplace. Maybe, that’s the reason why simplicity can move the pile.

#AtoZChallenge: R is For Relationships

#AtoZChallenge: R is For Relationships

From childhood to old age, so many relationships come and go in our lives. We have a tendency to look for a perfect relationship. Many people spend their entire lives to find the perfect one for them. And, finally, cannot come to the conclusion that which one was perfect for him or her. Now, the question is that does a perfect relationship exist?

Perfect relationships exist. Not only one, but more than one perfect connection exists also. Generally, the association, which flows smoothly and effortlessly without manipulating anything of yourself, you mark as the perfect union.  It’s not necessary that the man or the woman, with whom you live, can share everything with you or participate in any discussion with you.

The guy or the girl, with whom you enjoy sharing poetry and stories, can be the perfect one for your poetry’s relationship. The man, with whom, you love to drink, can be the best partner for you for enjoying the beverages. The girl, whose company, you enjoy most for chatting about music and songs, can be the perfect company for your musical moods. Like this way, your perfect romance partner cannot be your perfect gossip partner or your ideal shopping partner.

The perfect relationship is all about tunning. The partner, with whom, you can tune your emotions. When you do that, it goes with harmony with love and fights. It’s like a matching of web length. When your particular thoughts perfectly match with somebody’s thought, the connection between you two falls into harmony. The union goes so well that you feel comfort within that.

quote on the perfect relationships
The perfect relationships.

So, it does not happen that you will find one, with you can tune your all emotions or you can match all your web lengths. You will regret if you expect that. What needs to put all your expectation to a person? What needs to demand everything from one person? Life is not so short that you can close it within only one perfect union. Expand your life, wide your intellect to enjoy the wideness of living. Don’t put your thoughts in such narrow lane of finding at least one perfect relationship in your existence. Learn to give value to the smallest small relationships in this animation. You’ll definitely, find more than one perfect connections in your living.

Feel free to share your thoughts about the perfect relationships.

#AtoZChallenge: Q is For Quotes

#AtoZChallenge: Q is For Quotes

Quotes are the unspoken words of the heart. We love quotes because the feelings or the thoughts that we cannot express in words, a good quote does that. We adore quotes because those words have some magical effects that can change our perspectives when we are down. Those may not fade our pain. But, that group of words can show us thousand reasons of finding happiness.

“Everybody wants happiness. Nobody wants pain. But, you cannot have a rainbow without a little pain.”– Annonimas

Sometimes, expressing the unsaid words of our broken heart lights the pain within it.

“Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But, not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.”– Paulo Coelho.

When we are falling in love, we always find the romantic words that can narrate our love best.

“I live you neither with my heart nor with my mind. My heart might stop, my mind can forget. I love you with my soul because it never stops of forgets.”- Rumi

When life is not going well as we expect, when we are in the middle of the situation whether we ‘ll hold our dream or we’ll leave it, the quote of Paulo Coelho, said the best word on that.

“Fight for your dreams and your dreams will fight for you.”

Quotes

When we are in a light mood, the happiness quote should like this.

“The secret of happiness is a bad memory”– Annonimas

In the matters of motivational words, I will prefer Robin Sharma.

“Take the stones people throw at you and use them to build a Monument.”

Quotes play a great role when we are feeling alone. That time we can relate to the words, very intensely.

“Sometimes You Need to Be Alone. Not to Be Lonely. But to enjoy your free time being yourself.”-Annonimas.

The most beautiful words about life, I have found in Osho’s sayings.

“Once you have started seeing the beauty of life, ugliness starts disappearing. If you start looking at life with joy, sadness starts disappearing. You cannot have heaven and hell together, you can have only one. It is your choice.”
