Manipulating the Mind: From Mediocre to Magnificent

A sky full of stars to the mind are so far,

Logic deceives, your starry eyes only see them shine at a few light years

Shut your eyes, look inside and you will find them so near.

Your mind is the source of magic and malice, the core of brilliance and bullshit and the centerpiece of the puzzle of your life. From it originate tremendous thoughts, successful schemes, productive perceptions, inspirational  ideas, cutting edge concepts  along with destructive designs, notorious notions, cunning conspiracies.

If you express yourself and don’t hesitate  there is no end to the magic your mind can make.

Mind

This most valuable tool on earth defines the quality of your life. Health, wealth and success are all  variable consequences directly related to your mindset.  Spending time in optimizing your thoughts is an investment which will  give you everlasting returns.

Some kings ran  empires to the ground as they didn’t nurture their mind, while few beggars built castles and fortunes by optimizing their opinions to create succesful thought patterns and  designs.

Overcoming your own resistance

The degree of your progress depends on the intricacy with which you shape your thoughts. While some are content with mediocrity others are always on the lookout to think better and move forward.

I am writing this part to myself as well, as the next few lines have to be repeated to oneself time and again.

As humans, being at the top of the food chain, with your super smart brains, all of you are naturally conditioned to have this superiority complex. Nature blesses you with this beautiful ego, an identity which makes every individual unique, which empowers you to have full faith in your belief systems. As these belief systems take years and years to develop it  become an inseparable part of you.

But you fail to understand that the pseudo confidence from your belief system is a shackle as it prevents you from thinking with more than one perspective. To enhance your super computer you have to allow your ego to be defeated. Otherwise your current mentality of mediocrity will sustain forever.

Its always good to believe in something, but when you think in the long run, the evolving nature of this universe is the biggest indication that you need at times to let go of your beliefs and have the flexibility to adapt to the changing world.

Fighting with oneself

Situations will arise where you will have to manipulate your mind into believing things that go against your belief systems. You will most certainly have to go against what you think is right, because your current belief systems are incapable of taking you beyond where you already are.

Once you break the shackles of the systems that govern your mind by default,  you  open up a new world to yourself. As your perceptional paradigm expands you start noticing that the key to getting what you desire is in your own hands, yet you waste all the time, doing what you think is right.

Evolving with Flexibility and patience

Flexibility and patience are very important traits to initiate and sustain self mental manipulation. The fight against your mind can only be won over a period of time. When you go against your beliefs you will question your existence, it will be a bitter pill to swallow. But with patience you will understand that to move forward you have to leave some of the past behind.

It appears very simple in text but applying these things practically is the biggest test a human has to go through. Hope you all have fun breaking the barricade that rigid thinking creates and move into a higher way of thinking.

Share the warmth – Make it a Happy New Year

The year wont be happy by itself until each and everyone of us work towards making it a happy new year. The cosmos works on certain basic principles we all ignore. If you align yourselves to them you are destined to add happiness to the world and in the process be happy yourselves.

There is a common source of energy which is always active, it is responsible for the magic in the moment. This intangible energy helps you when you in the moment when things are out of your hands, when you need that stuck of luck, when you want divine intervention, when you have done everything you can but still the result is beyond your control. We all have seen these situations when the cosmos conspires to make things go our way. We might be ignorant but all of us are here living a healthy and happy earth because of this cosmic bucket of energy.

The Cosmic Bucket

The cosmic bucket is a common collection of good vibes, energies and emotions.  We are on a perpetual energy exchange with this bucket. Our state of being adds or takes away the energy from it on an individual basis, but all of us can use the energies of the cosmic buckets. The collective energy can be harnessed and channelized by each individual  when they need it.

This makes each and everyone of you responsible to add to the common bucket of happiness of the world. The fuel for this cosmic bucket is hope, love, care, joy, happiness and a positive mental  state. But fear, greed, hate, sadness, and a negative mental state are like holes in the cosmic bucket which wastes the effort of other positive people. 

The cosmos and its living element sustains on positive energy and humans are the key to it. So the only route to a happy new year is when people add to the happiness for themselves and each other. Indulging in activities which make the self and others happy stands at the core of feeding the cosmic bucket.

At times you are tested and consequently allow a negative mental state to control you. Your perception is blurred by fear and greed and hence instead of adding to the common bucket you waste its energy by being like a small hole in it. You not only spoil your own mood but take away the happy energy which was stored for others.

Its impossible to avoid situations but your mental state while responding to them either helps you utilize the cosmic bucket and get out of it or waste the collective energies of other people too.

Positive and Negative mental state

You are a positive energy source if you are grateful, thankful , helpful, hopeful, optimistic, appreciative, see the good in every situation or person. You look for the lotus in the dirt. Your presence adds to the happiness in every moment, your selfless efforts are directed towards making every one feel better for the goodness in their personality.

You are negative energy source if you are ungrateful, thankless, greedy, hopeless, pessimistic, ignorant, see the bad in every situation or person.  You look for the blemishes on the moon. Your presence takes away the happiness from every moment, your fearful and stressful efforts are directed towards making every one feel bad for the little badness in their personality.

Understand your own personality and if you really want to make it a happy new year stop forwarding messages and switch from a negative to a positive mindset.  Your positivism will be conveyed to the entire world through the common cosmic bucket of happy energy.

 

Make it a happy new year.

 

Happy New Year for one and all

All religions are based on similar principles, sharing the warmth, then why should we not share it among different religions as well. The common cosmic bucket of happiness doesn’t hold religious barriers. So if a sikh is adding to it by being happy and hopeful, a hindu can use this energy to add to his happiness. If a Muslim person is being appreciative and loving, a christian can derive his inspiration from the cosmic energy.

Have faith in yourself and each other, remember to share the love and empower those around you instead of criticizing them. A happy new year is guaranteed if you help it a happy new year for enough people around you.

The best way of spreading smiles is by having one on your own face first. Make it a Happy New Year.

The Game of Bones

Bones form the basic skeletal framework. It is essential for you to know your bones when you workout. Just like it is important to know about guns for a soldier, pen for a writer, angles for an architect and ingredients for a cook. 

When you workout, you move your muscles, which are set across joints. Knowing more about your skeletal framework is imperative for anyone involved in physical activities, so as to use them efficiently. Here is a small anatomical lesson on the bones of your body:

Your body has 206 bones, some soft and supple others stronger than stones.

Your anatomical structure comprises bones of variable shapes, sizes and length, the compact ones provide support while the spongy provide strength.

Long, short, irregular,flat and sesamoid, Along with supporting soft tissues they are known for the protection to internal organs they provide.

The axial skeleton forms the central axis to which the appendicular skeleton is attached , it includes the skull, ear ossicles, hyoid, rib cage, sternum and vertebral column on your back.

The appendicular skeleton helps you with moving yourself and other things, it includes the pelvic girdles, scapula, clavicle and your limbs.

Bones would be useless on their own so they unite to make us stand, they provide us our erect postures, the difference between animals and man. 

The cranium protects your brain, and your back has the vertebral chain,

The upper arm has the bone  humerus where your biceps reside, the clavicle connects your axial and appendicular skeleton, one on either side. 

The radius and ulna on the forearm and tibia fibula below the knee, always stick together like everlasting buddies. 

The rib cage forms  a jail and the coccyx is also called the tail. 

You have Carpals, metacarpals on the wrist and hand and Tarsals and metatarsals  on the ankle and the foot, get sprained easily when in the wrong plane they are shook.

Maxila and mandible are around the mouth from where you eat, phallanges form the fingers of both hand and feet. 

The smallest bones is stapes found in the ear, the largest femuris located near the thigh, one makes you hear well the other makes you jump high. 

The back contains the scapula also called the shoulder baldes, whereas your chest contains the sternum along with the rib cage. 

The multiple bones are connected at certain points, this articulation of cartilage and bones, which is remembered only when it pains. is referred to as a joint. 

Joints maybe immovable, movable or in between, na,ely Synarthrodial, Diarthrodial and Amphiarthrodial, toughest words my eyes have seen.

Fibrous joints are held together by connective tissue, remembering Syndemossis(shafts of radius and ulna) and Gomphosis(Tooth socket) is a big issue.

Cartilaginous joints are held together by hyaline or fibro cartilage, Synchondroses( At sternum and Rib) and Symphyses( intervertabral disks) appear more like names of creatures from the Juraasic age.

Synovial Joints are characterize most joints of the body and comprise a joint cavity, pronouncing Arthrodial(Acromioclavicular Joint), Ginglymus(Elbow and knee), Condyloid(Wrist), Sellar, (Thumb), Enarthrodial(Hip and Shoulder), and Trochoidal (Humeroradial) makes me lose sense of gravity.          

The cervical, thoracic and lumbar joints make you stand tall, the pelvic joint link you to your pillars so that you dont fall. 

The shoulder connects your body with your arm, the knee and the elbow are similar except the patella which prevents frictional harm. 

This is the story about your joint and your bones, these are the underlying framework below the muscular zone.

6 ways of burning out the burn out

Everyone is tested, the strongest go through phases of weakness, the fittest fall ill, the optimists fall victims of doubt, lovers become haters and the helpful become helpless. Burn outs are an unavoidable part of the modern lifestyle, it is then imperative to prepare oneself for the impending burn out rather than be dumbfounded when it hits you.

Life has the unique ability of testing your resolve, irrespective of how big, strong, happy and rich you are. Even the most contended hearts, stable minds, fit bodies and effervescent souls aren’t immune to the tests of time. No matter who you are you will have that one miserable day, how you respond to it will define the rest of your life.

I have been keeping myself fit for more than 7 years now, and rarely have I missed my training schedule at the gym or spared myself from a no nonsense diet over this phase. Yet last Wednesday, I was lying in bed neither fully asleep nor fully awake, my body in perpetual pain and mind in unrest. I was developing a new symptom of illness every other hour. It started from the throat, went to the muscles and skin to swelling on my fingers and finally to my head and spirit.

I usually consider myself quite inspired but I couldn’t find the inspiration to leave my room or look for remedies. This BURN OUT had burnt me out, and I was too dispirited to get out of it. So I kept sliding, my health went from bad to worse and my thoughts followed suit. After 5 days of suffering, I realized the only way of surviving the burn out is to burn it out.

I thought it would be great to use my experience as a springboard to help others who face burn outs in different aspects of their lives.

Here are 6 ways of dealing with any kind of burn out, it could be stress, illness, depression or anything that pulls you back from enveloping yourself in joy and happiness:

1. Understand that Burnouts are a part of our lives

Life is a trick so at times you might stumble, you got to go through some pain in order to become you.

It is OK to feel a little off color at times. You cant work at a 100% efficient 24/7. Take the burn out in your stride and try to stick to your routine as much as possible. No one is excused from pain and suffering because thats what makes you appreciate normal life. .

2. Filter and moderate what comes your way

Yes you are gifted with wings, but you cant perpetually flutter,

When you just let things slide, you are headed for the gutter.

The modern world throws endless bits of information your way. Your mind processes at least 10000 more information than your grand father’s used to and even he had problems. With all this bombardment on your sub conscious,you are bound to feel perplexed even if you don’t recognize it consciously. Your responses to all the information overdose balls up till it divulges itself as a burnout. Be sure to filter the information you expose yourself to.

Burn out

3. Survive to fight another day

You wont be immortalized as a warrior when you fight a battle you are set to lose,

Sometimes surrendering in order to live to fight another day is your best move.

Yes we keep struggling till we have nothing left, we reach a stage when the burn out cripples are soul and every thing we see appears negative, it is better to recognize the signs of the storm and prepare rather than wait for it to hit you. Survive by assessing your state of being on a constant basis, don’t let yourself get carried away by the burn out because it is better prevented than cured.

4. Swallow the bitterness as you savor the sweetness

Good wont be good if it weren’t for the bad,

You got the gift of life, you enjoy when the ride is smooth, try to withstand when it drags.

You are lucky to be alive and be granted the opportunity to experience all the wonders of being alive. Keeping that in mind you should stand tall when the bad weather comes and don’t curse fate and time, because the same fate and time is responsible for making you experience this blissful life.

5. Build a repertoire of goodness for the bad times

The Love and care which roots from you comes back to you when you most need it.

By selflessly helping others in their time of need you can be rest assured that you wont be facing your burnout alone. There will be someone to take care of you if you have managed to be there for someone at sometime. Spread goodness and joy and you will be surprised at how the universe will come to your aid when you most need it, in the form of a friend, a message or a subtle change around you, enough for you to burn out the burn out.

6. Fighting fire with fire

At times when you think all is lost you got to fight fire with fire, its all about assimilating the spark of your soul, with the strong will of your brain and your hopeful heart full of desire.

Burn out

You wont get out of the rut until you want to. Burn outs compel you to submit to life’s miseries till you are completely destroyed. They are capable of altering your perception and damaging common thought process turning you against yourself, so the most useful trick for me while facing a burn out is to burn it out before it burns you out.

Be stubborn and strong when it seems all wrong, see the opportunity to add to your persona in the time of stress and depression, don’t let the burnout bog you down and make you miss out on the things you like to do.

Burn out the burn out before it burns you out.
