Too Late!!

I read a quote today. Its image is posted below. It was tagged under ‘love quotes’, however I think its applicable to our entire life.

After reading it, I immediately thought, am I getting late at doing certain things? I also remembered one of my old posts, ‘Don’t procrastinate, Contemplate’. 

I recalled the folders I have created on my computer. I have four folders on my desktop titled Dream 1, Dream 2, Dream 3 and Dream 4. As I work on my dreams or collect the relevant material/information to make them come true, I place it in those folders.

One of those dreams has already come true! 🙂 The rest of them are a little tough, so I’m working on them. 😉

I know I keep repeating that, we need to enjoy every moment of life and make the most of it.

I am trying to approach the problem from a different angle today – From the eyes of people who say that their life is almost over and they have played their innings.

We all know that we have limited amount of time on this earth. We(including me!) still waste our time doing things which will hold no value for us ever.

Some of my relatives, friends, family – who are old now – say that their life is almost over. It makes me very sad, firstly because it makes me emotional and secondly because it makes me feel life is so transient. It’s a phase.

There is no guarantee about how long one is going to live and there is no point fearing it also. You fear the unknown but the fact that ‘life ends’ is known to everyone.

Knowing that life is precious encourages me to work harder on my dreams.

As long as you are alive, It’s never too late to work on your dreams and inspire others to work on theirs. Begin now.

Energy!

I had an interesting conversation with someone today – She had the hindu religious book, ‘The Bhagavad Gita’ lying in her office and that’s what started the discussion.

For those, who are not aware of what the ‘Bhagawad Gita’ is – It is an ancient hindu scripture that recites the conversation between Lord Krishna and his disciple, Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra. The teachings of Bhagavad Gita provide a practical perspective about living life based on ‘Karma’.

She told me, she was confused about which chapter to begin with. I told her my favorite chapters and said that, per my interpretation, Gita teaches us to spread positive energy and minimize the effect of negative energy in the world.

I told her that per my understanding, the entire world is sharing energy in one form or the other. Various creatures in the world, including human beings, exchange energy.

Per the law of conservation, energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can be changed from one form to the other.

Everyday, some positive energy gets transformed into negative energy and some negative energy gets transformed into positive energy to maintain the balance and equilibrium.

After the conversation, I recalled a lesson from my science book about magnetic fields.

I am sure we all remember that opposite poles attract each other and similar poles repel. I do not remember the exact scientific concept behind it! Philosophically, maybe the negative pole gets attracted to the positive pole because it sees something positive in it! 🙂

Once two magnets are connected through their opposite poles, a bigger magnet with a larger and better magnetic field is formed!

If all human beings were magnets and all their negative poles/energies were attracted towards the positive poles/energies of other magnets, a huge big magnet could be formed!

The problem is that the negative poles move towards other negative poles and get repelled by their own negativity (anger, hatred, ego, fear, confusion, doubts). And hypothetically, positive poles move towards other positive poles and get repelled by jealousy!

It’s important to take the positive from others to shed out the effect of our own negative field/energy, as long as we are alive. There is no point moving towards other negative energies or repelling from more positive energies!

When you feel negative, get attracted towards other positive energies and repel yourself from other negative energies. When you feel positive, stay positive.

Can we all magnetize and energize each other positively? Can everyone give up their egos, hatred, jealousy, anger and other negative energies?

Can we maintain the equilibrium (in our minds atleast) each second, each moment, each day?

Can we?
