#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.


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: F is Forgiveness

#AtoZChallenge: F is Forgiveness


Forgiving someone, who hurts you deeply, is the hardest challenge of life. But, you can only move forward in life when you can make it possible. Forgiveness is a measure to unload the extra baggage of your mind.  Hate, jealousy, distrust and desire to take revenge make the mind heavy and stressful.  The heavy mind cannot enjoy the natural happiness of spirit. Forgiveness is the best measure to do that.

You can only forgive someone when you want to forgive him or her. Otherwise, you have to be burnt in the rest of the life with the fire of the hate and the desire for revenge. There are some ways to do that.


6 keys to forgive the misdeeds:

    1. Diverting the mind:

After experiencing the tremendous pain of the incident, when you think you have no way to relieve other than forgiving, you need to divert your mind from that. Life is much broader than a particular incident. So, concentrate on your routine activities, like your work in the office and home, your educations, party, club whatsoever activities you did before that incident.

      2. Loving:

Every emotion is the energy. Hate, jealousy, desire for revenge, etc., generate a huge amount of energy, just like the fire. Simply, transfer the energy in loving something or someone. Love your hobby, love your work, and love the people, who are with you even at your toughest times. Just increase the amount of love and love as much as you can. The extra puss of love will be supplied from the vitality of those unwanted emotions

    3. Feeling Light:

When you transform the huge energy of those uncomfortable emotions into serene love, you automatically feel light and you can love yourself.  This propels your mind open to receive the eternal call, “move forward”.

    4. Learning Lessons:

You can only move forward, properly, when you will take morals from the incident that hurts you in the worst. Try to learn from that experience. Did you trust someone blindly? Did you depend on someone mostly? Are you the victim of hypocrisy? Or were you simply the victim of someone’s mistakes?  Ask yourself the questions like that. You must be found the correct answer

     5. Moving forward:

When you will take morals from your experience, you must feel that the lessons are much bigger than the incident or the misdeeds. It helps you to look forward.

     6. Accepting:

When you will see that someone’s misdeeds teach you a great lesson, it will be easy to accept that as a part of life. Accepting the incident or someone’s misdeeds with a great life lesson is forgiving. Then, you can feel that you have really unloaded the extra baggage of your mind.

F is for Forgiveness

Forgiving someone doesn’t intend to stoop downwards.  It is a much higher thing than anything you can get along in your lifetimes. But, forgiving the injustice without fighting back is your weakness. Thus, you have to decide when to fight back and when to forgive.

That one Dream…..

That one Dream…..

This article narrates a wonderful journey from the conflagration of anxiety to the joy and peace. I found it in Shreyans’s blog. His wondrous words and presentation add extra beauty in this article. I think this journey can inspire many of us who are going through a stage of anxiety and feeling lonely in this world.

The Clowns of the Real Stage

The Clowns of the Real Stage

“The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on.”


The show is going on continuously, till the death. We have to entertain our audiences like the clowns of the circus. We cannot cry in front of them as our tears will spoil our make-up. We cannot remove our colourful dresses as our black and white dresses will come out in the facade of the audiences. We are hypnotised by the phrases of “The show must go on.”

The things, we do to make happy others or to impress others, aren’t like the circus in the real life? We are breaking inside; we are going against our heart; we are crying behind the stage, but we are showing outside that we are fine. Our eyes filled up with tears, but our lips are still widening by the expression of a smile. Are we not the clowns of the real life circus?

Clown in the circus

We are executing the same show throughout our lifetimes. Practicing the same day by day, make us feel that the show is real and the real is the imaginary world. Suppressing tears, tolerating insults, following orders and sacrificing the small wishes for performing the shows or keeping the false image outside turn us into the living cadavers. We forget to live. We forget to smile. We forget to cry. We forget to rest. Is it less than a clown’s life? Performing this type of living turns our lives into the stage of the circus.

But, life is not a stage of the circus. We have gotten this lives to discover its treasure; to fulfil its purpose. But, it is not given to us for wasting it to entertain others. The conditions of clowns are quite better than us. It’s because they have a certain time to perform their shows. After the shows and training of shows, they are free to live their life in their way. But, We, the clowns of the real stage, have no time to wipe our make-up and remove the colorful dresses. We are performing the circus throughout the lifespan. This circus torturing our soul. This circus snatches our happiness. This circus turns off the light of our tremendous life force.

The peach of life persists on outside the stagecoach. The life force is hidden into our laughing, our crying and our loving. If we are not allowed to do that, our life will be meaningless. The happiness and peace of life depend on us. If we choose to go against our hearts and do the things to please the other’s heart, we are going to commit suicide. That entails, we are not living our lives. We are the clown of other’s circus. And this circus breaks free. If we choose to perform this circus, we cannot take retirement from it until our body is not reached into the grave. The claps and boos of audiences are not real happiness. We are getting that for performing the great amusing acts. Simply, the acts are acts not real. Thus, the momentary happiness we achieve from outside by hiding our originality is not ours. That is for the clowns, who are endlessly proving to impress the audiences.

This duality is tiring us and creating stress on our beautiful mind. Get out of this circus of real life and live the real life with your complete genuinity. Genuine peace and happiness will come after you.

Close to Nature

Close to Nature

When I come to close to nature, I feel that I’m in my mother’s lap. This comfortably helps me to enjoy the every substance of nature. Nature is also a great teacher and it itself a living philosophy. So, whenever I get in touch of pure nature, crossing the forest of concrete, I always try to learn something from it. I always love to share my thoughts and learning with my friends.

After passing a long vacation, I’m just cherishing the beautiful memories  of the trip.  Sometimes, the truth of life becomes very prominent through the nature. The pictures are showing the examples of that.

Reflection through the water of River

The water of the river is transparent. So, it reflects almost a real image of the object. The brightness of the sun, the beauty of green and the essence of nature are captured by our naked eyes through this transparent water. When the mind is transparent, it contemplates the true icons of the objects, which it perceives. Hence, the people with the transparent mind can experience the genuine stunner of the spirit, can capture the light of truly enlighten person. Simply, if the mind is not crystalline, it cannot get the actual icon of anything. Then, the beauty and essence of the liveliness will not be  reflected by the murky mind.


The dark tree house is lightened by the penetration of sunlight through the opening of its wooden shed.The source of light always stays behind the darkness. Try to find out the source, which can enlighten your soul.


The current of the river is jammed by the stones of the mountainous region. Sometimes the flow of the life needs to slow down to realize the value of it. Obstacles come into our life to stop the flow our animation. One can knows oneself in a better way only in the flowless condition.

hope plant

A little plant has come away from the rocky surface. The impossible turns to possible. Believe in yourself and keep your hope up for your dream. Nothing is impossible.


Every flower is a soul, blossoming in nature.”  Hence, flowers always refresh our mind.


This is a Tibetian Monastery of Coorg, a small hill station of South India, called “Golden Temple”.  The place where one can find the way of peace. Monastery always reminds the great leader and philosopher, Dalai Lama. Just want to finish this diary of nature with one of his quote.

The planet doesn’t need more successful people. The planet desparetely needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, lovers of all kinds.” – Dalai Lama

10 Ways To Detoxify Your Mind

10 Ways To Detoxify Your Mind

Detoxification of Mind:

Detoxification or detox is a process of releasing toxic component from our body. Like our body, our mind is also intoxicated by the toxic emotions and negative thoughts. Every emotion is the energy. So, a balance among the every emotion makes the mind beautiful and peaceful. If this balance is disturbed, the mind begins to suffer with stress, worries and unhappiness. This stress leads to search happiness outside, whereas it is within us. The toxicity of the unhealthy emotions like anger, hate, jealousy, greed, panic, frustrations, depressions etc., intoxicated our innate happiness. So, we need to detoxify our mind. Only then, we can find our innate happiness and peace of mind.

10 Ways To Detoxify Your Mind:


There are several processes of detoxification of the mind. Here, I describe the ten major ways to detoxify the mind.

1.     Releasing toxins:

Those toxic emotions should be released from the mind. But, don’t throw those to other’s mind in a raw form. Suppose, you are getting angry for some reasons. It raises your stress. Your mind will always try to release this toxin. To get relief from the stress, you just throw it to another person and he just follows the same procedure for his relief. In this way, anger toxicity is transmitted person to person. But, if you release your anger in some of your activities (it’s better to say which you love to do) like writing, dancing, painting, singing, jogging, cooking, walking or the works which need a huge energy (and you like to do that), it cannot spread toxicity in the environment. But, keep in mind, whatever you do, do alone. Try to use the tremendous energy of the powerful emotions, like anger and hate, in a purposeful work.

2.     Transformation of Toxin:

Some toxic emotions like jealousy, guilty of mistakes, Hate, you can transform into some good emotions. Suppose, you are jealous of your friend, who has a brighter career than you, and feeling intoxicated by the toxicity of jealousy. If you stop comparing you to your friend and practice the habit of appreciating the person rather than destroying the relationship, you can transform your jealousy to your empathy. Like this way, you can also transform the hate into forgiveness by accepting  the person as he/she is and learning a lesson from the incident . In this way, the energy of the toxic emotions will convert into the energy of performing some good work.

3.     Habits of learning- Innate Immunity:

This is a habit, which acts as our Innate immune system. It protects you from the exotoxin   (the  toxic emotions come from the external incidents).  If you practice the habit of learning from every small and big incident of life, the toxicity of those incidents couldn’t harm you. The lessons, which you have learned from the incidents will enrich you more. Suppose, if you try to learn from your failure rather than feeling frustrated, you can use the failure as your stepping stone.

4.     Self-value- Acquired Immunity:

Society has a tendency to release the toxin like panic, frustrations, negative thoughts  in the raw form to the environment , that means to other persons. These toxins can affect badly to the persons, who has no self-value. They see the poisonous toxins as the medicines for their improvement as they don’t know themselves. So, one should give value to oneself. Otherwise, one cannot fight with these kinds of exotoxins. It acts like an Acquired immunity. People make this system strong by the repetitive attack and exposure to these toxins.

5.     Introspection- Antitoxin:

Sadness or depression like emotions, generally distract people from the external environment and make the people less energetic. If one accepts this intoxication as the opportunity of self-growth, it helps one in introspection.  So, you can save your life from losing in a world of depression, by this way. Introspection is a very good antitoxin to detoxify the mind from many kinds of exotoxins like criticism, negative thoughts, wrong guideline, blind faith and so many toxins those badly intoxicate the mind.  So, these types of toxic emotions can create  antitoxin in the mind and then detoxify it.

6.     Patience-Innate Immune System:

This is also a type of the innate immune system. It helps us to keep patience in any unexpected situation and observe it properly.  People with this quality cannot get affected by the environmental toxin easily. One can adopt this nature by increasing his tolerance level of mind by continuous practice. Then, you can say it, as an acquired immunity.

7.     Dissolving the Ego:

Ego is highly responsible for toxicity in mind. Usually, we cannot understand it well until we find our true self. But, we can understand its presence by our pride or “I-ness”. Pride is a kind of toxin that not destroy  the person only, but also ruins his/her relationships.  It intoxicates the mind such a bad way, that the person forgets almost all of his/ her good qualities and emotions. The funny thing is that the pride intoxicated persons cannot realize their toxicity until they are ruined by their pride. So, it’s better to be conscious of the presence of the pride after every success or achievement. If it arises, try to dissolve that at the beginning. Otherwise, it will rise like a giant and finally kill you.

8.     Antitoxin- Self-praise:

Toxins,  like extreme criticism, the pressure of high expectations, negative thoughts, which are coming from the outside, can create a severe level of depression toxicity in one’s mind. This kind of toxicity kills the hope of living anymore or it can cause mental death. Sometimes this toxicity also leads committing suicide. In this case, self-praise acts as a chemotherapeutic medicine, which is formed from the poison of the snake. Self-praise, itself the  pride and kills our original good nature in normal condition. But, in the critical condition, it acts as a lifesaving antitoxin to detoxify tremendous toxicity in the mind.

9.     Meditation-Preventive measure:

Meditation is a good measure of preventing toxicity. But, a toxic mind cannot meditate well. So, if you practice meditation on a daily basis, environmental toxicity cannot intoxicate you easily.

10. Acceptance:

It is the ultimate way to detoxify our mind. It also prevents toxicity in the mind. Think positive and accept the life as it is. Everyone is unique. You cannot compare yourself to another person. So, appreciate the good nature and accept the bad nature of the people. Don’t allow the others interference in your life. Live the life in your way. This is the acceptance and ultimate medicine or preventive measure of toxicity in the mind.


Toxicity in mind is very common in our daily life. So, either we should do some preventive measure to protect our mind from the environmental toxicity, or we should practice the detoxifying measure to detoxify our mind. Practice these measures of detoxification to keep your innate happiness and peace in your life.

Toxicity In The Mind: 14 Destructive Nature of Toxic Mind

Toxicity In The Mind: 14 Destructive Nature of Toxic Mind

Toxicity in the mind:

A perfect mind is balanced with our positive and negative emotions. If this balance is changed, the peace of mind is hampered.  We often call it as stress. However, the mind has its own control mechanism to maintain this balance by its positive and healthy emotions like love, compassion, forgiveness etc., which help in resilience.  For this reason, we still feel love for ourselves in spite of the unwanted and unexpected situations of outside.

Sometimes, the rustic change (read increase) of any negative emotions like hate, anger, greed, jealousy, pride, fear, frustrations etc., can demolish the total balance system of mind and control the mind in its own way. Mind loses its natural and innate features of love, peace and happiness completely. Then, these emotions act as the toxic agents of mind and intoxicated our beautiful mind. Like our body, our mind is intoxicated by the excessive rise of these unwanted and unhealthy emotions. In this way, these types’ negative emotions and thoughts create toxicity in the mind.


Why does a mind get intoxicated?

The toxic agents of the mind are panic, anger, jealousy, hate, pride, frustrations, depression; negative self-talks and so on, which we see as the negativity of mind. But these are not actually negative emotions. These types of emotions create negativity or toxicity in mind because we cannot use them purposefully.

When a toxin is entered into the body, we should release it from the body. But, what we do with our mind? Either we suppress them in our mind or release them in such a way that the opposite persons get intoxicated by our toxins. So, a cycle of intoxication continuing from person to person.  As a result, emotional balance is hampered by these internal and external influences. The toxin like stress, worry, sadness and ego-ness etc., are released from the toxic substances of the mind and intoxicated it.

14 destructive Nature of toxic mind:

When the mind is intoxicated, it not only harms the person specifically, but it also changes the total circumstances of the person with its toxicity. The destructive effects of intoxicated mind are as follows.

  1. A toxic mind always produces negative and harmful thoughts, which ruin the capability of thinking something in a simple way. Things become complicated when it enters into as toxic mind.
  2. Toxicity in mind also changes the perceptions of the victim. When the mind becomes intoxicated, one perceives everything in a negative way.
  3. It compels one to do awful and unexpected activities. That’s why; sometimes we pass comment about a known person, who is intoxicated by the toxic emotions, “He is totally changed/ Money and fame change him completely.”
  4. An excessive level of toxicity in mind changes one’s personality.
  5. A person with a toxic mind cannot keep up any healthy relationship. Toxicity is always disturbing his or her relationships. Breaking up is very common for the toxic-minded people.
  6. A toxic mind is always suffering in an insecurity complex. Maybe, it is one of the causes of this intoxication.
  7. Toxicity in mind leads mental illness. If it persists for a long time, a person having the toxic mind becomes the psychopath.
  8. Some toxicity leads social withdrawal of the person.
  9. A toxic mind has a tendency to spread toxicity in its surrounding environment. People, who are surrounding the toxic-minded person, have a chance to get intoxicated by that toxicity if they have no control over
  10. When the toxic-minded people become the parent, the parenting becomes intoxicated by their toxicity. The innocent children become the unfortunate victim of this toxicity.
  11.  Sometimes, prolong and excessive toxicity in mind leads losing of social position and professional degradation of a person with excessive toxicity in the mind.
  12. Toxicity snatches the peace and happiness of mind. Unnecessary stress fills the mind completely.
  13. A toxic mind loses its emotional energy. Even, the positive energy of the mind is converted into the toxic energy. So, the people with toxic mind become less energetic and use their all energy in spreading toxicity in the surrounding environment.
  14. Humanity is murdered by the toxicity in the mind.


Toxicity in the mind destructs the person and his/her relationships. Not only that, but it also spreads the toxicity  in other peoples’ mind. That is a most dangerous thing because it kills humanity. So, we should be aware of the toxicity in the mind. If it is detected, we should detoxify it as soon as possible. After all, we all deserve happiness and peace.

Recycle & Reuse of the Waste of Human Mind

Recycle & Reuse of the Waste of Human Mind

recycle+mindRecycle and Reuse are the most common environmental process to eliminate the waste from the environment. The human mind is also like the environment.  If we can see our mind in the mirror, we can’t look at the mirror for a minute. Since the garbage of society destroys the beauty of our mind.  That’s why we are always wondering for happiness, whereas it belongs to us.

Happiness is suppressed under the garbage of your mind. When you transform this huge dump of garbage into the useful things, you can enjoy the happiness of transformations. This is called recycle and reuse of the waste of mind. Day by day, the garbage is increasing in our mind. To decrease the load, we just throw it from our house to our neighbour’s house and this cycle continues shamelessly.

What is the Garbage?

Garbage is nothing but our unhealthy emotions like anger, hate, jealousy, frustration, rejection and so many negative thoughts. When you feel you are overloaded by those, you simply throw it to other’s mind. Suppose, in your office, your boss insults you for some reasons and you came back home by suppressing your anger. Your wife serves you dinner. Unfortunately, you find  out that your favourite chicken item is slightly less boiled. That heats your anger and it’s blasted out. You shout on your wife and you don’t want to hear anything from your wife. Finally, you reject the dinner, which makes your wife angry. Your little daughter watches this scene between her Mom and Dad and she is getting frightened by both of your reactions. She starts to cry in loud. Then, your wife shouts on the little girl by coming in anger. In this way, a family peace is totally distorted by throwing the anger in a cycle. Here, the anger is garbage.

But, if you release the anger in another way rather than suppressing it within your mind, the anger of your boss cannot disturb your family peace. In this case, you can do more hard work in office to release your anger or can do a little understanding of your anger. If the fault is yours, you should apologize to your boss. If  you have no fault, you should ignore the anger by coming in compassion like “he is a poor guy, either he is jealous of me and just want to show me down or he simply discharges his own load of anger.” Why should you carry other’s load of garbage?  Just, look at your child. She is neither carrying the load of that anger nor throwing it back to continue the cycle. She released it by crying (as she knows only this technique of release) and then she started playing by forgetting it. Her play and activities make both of you happy. In this way, the little girl transforms your anger into your happiness.

She can do it because she is not loaded by the garbage of society. She is happy with herself and providing happiness to the people around you. But, when she will learn from the society that she has to suppress the emotions to maintain the so-called formality, she’ll just forget the magic of transformation.

Reduce, Recycle and Reuse:

If we can keep the habit of the transformation of unhealthy emotions, we can get a stress-free life. Every emotion is full of energy. So, if we learn to recycle the garbage of mind, we can reuse it for a constructive purpose. This is called the transformation of negative energy into positive energy for constructive work.

So, when you will experience any unhealthy emotion, just try to release it in a positive way or in constructive purpose. Emotions like anger, jealousy, anxiety, and hate are carrying tremendous energy. You shouldn’t waste it like  the garbage. Don’t go in suppressing that energy, they are not easily available. Discharge those in a constructive way. If you love to write, write something at that time. If you are a passionate blogger, write some fabulous, energetic blog post. If you like dancing or jogging or singing, go for that. Keep in mind that you have to do some energetic activity. But, don’t go for listening to the music or reading a storybook (even you cannot do those that time). If you can’t find any energetic activity, just go for a walk. After all, health is wealth.

At the time of less energetic emotions like frustration, sadness, depression, etc., you shouldn’t waste your time by drinking the alcohol bottle after bottle or taking antidepressants/ sleeping pills. Solitude comes, when energy escapes. Accept the solitude. It restricts all the distractions of your mind from worldly activities, which helps you to focus on yourself, that is called introspections.

As much as you practice it in this way, your mind will be trained to reduce the amount of these unhealthy emotions.


Do you know lotus flower? It is a divine flower to the Hindus and the Buddhists. It is portrayed, Vishnu and Lakshmi sit on the lotus flower, Buddha sits on a lotus flower. This has significance. The Lotus flower is the perfect example of “Transformations”. It is found in the muddy and murky water of a pond or lake, which spreads a pungent odour. But, when the lotus bloomed it spreads beauty and fragrance. The muddy water is the symbol of the waste of our mind and the lotus flower is the symbol of beauty, happiness and peace, which you can say ‘positivity’. The pungent odour of muddy water, that is the negative thoughts transform into the fragrance of lotus, that is positivity or constructive work. When you will transform all the garbage of the mind into the best and essential products of life like a lotus flower, you will rediscover your happiness and can spend a stress-free life. 

The Three R’s (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle) of eliminating waste from the environment are also applicable for eliminating the waste of human minds. So, keep practicing the process of reducing, reuse and recycling of the garbage of your mind and clean the mind. Automatically, you will enjoy a happy and stress-free life.
