Rise above Stress.

ImageStress drains you out…. It takes away all your positive energy and enthusiasm.
It makes you feel you are not loved….that no one is with you and you are left all by yourself to handle life’s struggles.

Stress makes you vulnerable.

Do you realize when you are stressed? What do you do to come out of it? Can you recognize your emotions, your body behavior when you are stressed? Do you just give into it?

When you recognize that you are stressed… keep away from other people ….because it is quite possible that you will let out your negative energy in the form of anger, anxiety or complaints.

Handle your stress – accept it. Think how can things be made better and ….if you are unable to think – just try to make yourself feel better. Don’t think too much.

Do something you like – all by yourself. Manage your energy levels. Refill yourself with love. Recharge your energies.

You give out what you have within. If you have stress, you give out stress. If you have love, you give out love.

Rise above stress. Rise above your weaknesses. Don’t let stress make you feel weak. Don’t let it overpower you.

You have the power to change your emotions, without complaints, without any disagreements. It comes with practice, like everything else in life.

Maintain one hobby that reduces your stress. Pursue it when ever you feel you are not giving out ‘happy energies’. It will refill you with love and those vibes will be reflected outside.

You are what you feel within. Rise above stress.

Guess the tone – Is ‘that’ how you do it?! :O ;) :) :{ :/

Positive Criticism.

Can criticism ever be positive? Can it ever lead to something good?

Do you avoid criticizing others?
and
Can you take criticizing remarks made on you, in good spirits?

If you avoid criticizing others, or look over their mistakes, it may very well imply, that you expect others, to ignore your own mistakes and faults as well.

The reality is – Unfortunately, in this world, if people keep patting each other on the back without pushing each other to improve, they can not grow or do better.

“How to take criticism sportingly?” – This is one training, which probably every person should get during childhood itself.

It’s ok if some people do not like you or your work, it’s ok if they do not understand your efforts, it’s ok if they do not recognize you. You are what you are and you need to be happy about it. You need to be yourself!

If you do not like something, it’s ok to say it. Ofcourse, it is important to be polite towards others and show the minimal amount of courtesy in various situations. But, it is equally important to have an opinion – good or bad.

If something happens to you, try to categorize it as “towards your good” or “towards your bad”. It will help you judge people and situations better. It will also help you judge yourself better.

When someone says, “Hey, you didn’t do that right!”:

Step1. Understand that he is recognizing something bad in you or your work.
Step2. Accept that there is room for improvement.
Step3. Take a step back and do not take the comments personally. Disconnect ‘the comment’ from ‘the person’ who said it.
Step4. Analyze – can you improve the situation to avoid it in future?
Step5. If you can, then improve it, taking it as a lesson.
Step6. If you cannot improve it , take it as a lesson in understanding ‘the person’ who made the remark. Think, why that person is making such a remark and change your communication style to handle the situation.

There’s a lesson either ways. A lesson for you.
That’s what positive criticism is – a lesson for you to grow.

If you focus your energy on trying to change others, it may not be very productive. Change yourself.

Be like flowing water, that can fit into any vessel, any container ~~~~ of any shape. Hard or Soft. Symmetrical or Crooked. Water never loses its worth and internal properties.

There’s a famous proverb: The key to happiness is good health and bad memory. Forget the criticisms, but remember the lessons learned!

Criticism is good if it leads to constructive thoughts in your mind. If you welcome applause, you must welcome criticism with an open mind.
~ In all situations stay cool!

By the way, were you able to guess the tone in the title above? 🙂

Fill yourself with love….!

Image

In order to give out love, you need to fill your own self with love.

How do we fill ourselves with love? – By not having negative feelings about anything or anyone.

Is it that simple? – Yes, it is

Just like we need food and water to replenish our energy, we need good positive thoughts to replenish our heart and mind. We need to feel good about ourselves in order to make others feel good about themselves.

Filling ourselves with love requires courage – courage to ignore the things which do not hold any value in our life.

If you go to a party and someone comments about the way you look, the way you talk etc etc, it is up to you to take that negatively or neutrally.

It’s important to stay neutral and keep looking forward, in spite of any tough circumstances.

Filling yourself with love requires forgiveness, hope and dreams. In order to do this, you have to find simple pleasures of life and live them happily.

Everytime something disturbs you or makes you weak, it is important to take responsibility for that emotion and replace it with love.

Too much self love is also not good. If you are full of love, you need to share it with other people.

Give them compliments, help them in their chores, guide them to succeed, forgive them no matter what, accept them the way they are, be patient with them, try to read their emotions and minds, communicate with them, be open, wish well for everyone even if they are not good to you – Be thankful for being alive and make them feel happy to be alive.

Replenishment is the essence of love. Love likes to flow. It does not like to stay in one place and become stagnant. Its like water – pure, transparent, fluid.

Fill yourself with love each moment by doing what you like, doing what makes you love life – And encourage others to do what they are good at.

Live life lovingly.

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?
