Inner Peace : Intangible Vs Tangible

Have you ever noticed how some things that come free are priceless and somethings which cost a lot of money are valueless? If you haven’t then you are surely blinded by what appears, limited by the tangible dimension of reality and starved off inner peace.

Man has become so fascinated by visible mediocrity that he has forgotten the charm of Invisible Mesmrism. Beauty is only skin deep and that is what this generation believes in. Their tangible wants outnumber their intangible traits. Thus taking them on an endless race away from inner peace.

The Intangible Vs The Tangible

Allowing oneself to be shaped by the tangible elements of the world,

  1. Being influenced by  appearance and objectification of beauty
  2. Idol worship and monetization of God
  3. Greed and endless race for Material Possession
  4. Physical makeup than mental makeup

is a curse which takes the shine out of life sooner than later.  This not only compels you to live  your life an an endless rat race but also comes in between your spiritual awakening, the only thing capable of saving you from the curse of tangible influence.

The  4 points above detract you from the more soul nourishing intangible aspects of reality ,

  1.   The nectar of your and any other soul is much much more than what is visible to eyes
  2. God is inside you, working for your own inner peace is the best form of devotion. The currency for making offerings is Good Karma.
  3. There is more pleasure in  giving than getting, be greedy to ohelp more people
  4. If you have inner peace, it shines through, giving you a natural makeup better than any face mask you where to hide your inner ugliness.

The intangible imbalance usually leads to a lot of dysfunction in in the way of their lifestyle which often shows tangible consequences in the form of bad health stress and eventually disharmony and lack of inner peace.

East Vs West

The other day one of my friends  had the audacity, all my inner circle friends are audacious to represent their thoughts  transparently,  of stating, ” Nowadays, A westerner is better in the Eastern way of life, than the easterner himself”

Again we have been caught up with the tangible aspects of our own great spiritual past. Most ancient writings, sermons and books are lost in translation.  Rendering people to be soulless God Fearing confident less material collectors (sorry, not sorry for the harsh words) and this is what they pass over to the next generation.

You never experience western culture first hand, what you see isi the over glamorized digital or movie based version, which you try to ape. The thing with spying someone partially is that, it adds to the confusion in your own identity rather than getting you a newer thought process.

So straight from bizarre fashion trends, getting caught up by advertising schemes to trying to be pseudo independent(with the comforts of the parents in the back of the head), the easterners want to be the westerners they see on TV.

So to experience real western life, you will need to spend some years there,  even your vacations spent in comfort and cozy environments aren’t enough.  Then make the decision to copy them or not.

The modern Indian prefers being a fake imitation of the partial western life observed by his narrow vision to act temporarily rich. The Modern westerner, on the contrary, seeps himself into the Indian environment, and is making most of our spiritual wealth to make himself eternally priceless with inner peace

You might see a perfectly happy person posting the best selfies and quotations on social media. But this shows only half of the truth. The portrayal of happiness which is so much in Vogue these days is not actual happiness. This again throws light on the tangibly whole and intangibly hollow state of affairs.

Intangible traits, which are often overlooked, carry the keys to a better lifestyle, and inner peace do not ignore them. What appears to the eye is blinding.

Modern Communication : Sending Whatsapp messages to Landlines

Have you ever tried  sending a whatsapp message on  a landline number? What happens? Something similar to what happens when you try communicating with someone on a different level of vibration(frequency) than you.

You give it your best shot, be more eloquent than Big B, but at the end your piece of advise or information never seeps through the mind of the receiver.

When the frequency(alignment, vibration) is not aligned, communication becomes irrelevant and ineffective. This is the reason why some people can communicate without even sharing a word, while others yell at the top of their voices without communicating at all.

So in order to foster any form of a substantial relationship, one has to understand to first align the energy  with another person, before communicating effectively. This will not only help you in relationships but also make you more efficient at your work, specially when it comes to leadership, sales and inspiring others.

Art Learnt from Practice 14258351_10154381238776760_4131211427674726812_o

Over the last few years I was privileged to work inthe commercial capital in one of the most difficult phases of the most difficult industries as the head of business development and sales. Selling(sailing) against the wind is really difficult yet I managed to bring up sales and bring down expenses in ways the company never saw before.

In my time with this company I was involved in structuring andfinalizing  7 figure deals on a daily basis. The product was a specific niche and so were the clients.  I was pretty clueless at the onset  but you learn when your life depends on it.

What I realized was that by spending more time in building an energy alignment with my clients,  I fostered better connections and relationships, which automatically elevated the number of sales.

As by building this alignment, I ended up communicating in the frequency which my client was most receptive and responsive to. That’t how I could elucidate myself better and even the client could get a more efficient download of the information I provided.

Being a mind,body and soul coach this came to me naturally as I was genuinely interested in creating this bond, rather than just making the sale.  I also experienced that the clients aligned  more with authenticity than with elaborate representations of the product.

In my time as a health and lifestyle coach, I always focus on developing good bonds with my clients, even if it comes at some sacrifice on the professional front.  I make sure I am totally transparent with my clients as that what I expect out of them, so as to design effective long term strategies, which are best suited only for them.

Again by spending more energy in getting to know elaborate details about my clients, I am able to adapt myself to their vibrational frequency and make better connections and communication.

It is not Magic, it is Physics

This concept is another science backed spiritual phenomenon.  Just like it is impossible to send  whatsapp messages on Landlines, though you can make calls through your phone to them, you can always communicate some messages when you are not in alignment with the other person, but for holistic energy and information interchange you need a similar frequency.

The laws of physics are at play which suggest that there are different frequencies of vibrations, some of these planes are invisible to the eye, and if the speaker aims at establishing a similar range of vibrations as the receiver, the result are magical.

Notice every successful person, every book you like reading or song you listen to. It connects with you on a plane which is subjective to you.  Creating a frequency which more people can align with is the trait of a leader. For that you have to spend more time understanding the ways of the world and its residents.

meditation

The best way of developing this skill is by being in alignment with the universe and flowing in the present moment without worries of the past and stresses of the future. Once you have reconnected your chord with the soul of the universe you will notice how easy it always was to make better connections ad communicate effectively.  Otherwise you will just be sending whatsapp messages on a landline.

A Balanced Lifestyle – The Magic in Moderation

Just take  a moment. Keep everything aside.

Hold your breath.

Take out your wallet. (Keep holding your breath)

Start counting all your money. (Keep holding your breath)

See how priceless the money becomes when you fall short of breath.

The Empty Chase, The Rat Race, its all for the currency which  means a lot more than its meant to.

That is the reason why you are willing to cheat and deceit, even yourself, in order to get rich. The biggest threat to a balanced lifestyle is this demonic urge of paper chasing.

How can you have balanced lifestyle when your life scales are always tilted towards hoarding more money to fulfill your limitless obsessions.  People want to afford cheap stuff with expensive price tags not even for themselves, but just to brag. They want to feed their starved ego and satisfy expensive tastes with garbage food in golden bags.

Its impossible to imagine a balanced lifestyle, for the ones absorbed in running the rat race. They are willing to put themselves through whatever it take in order ensure financial supremacy, or display financial security.

But when the hollow balloons of their ego pops, their entitled minds are the first to curse fate and turn to a life of misery, stress and hopelessness.

Importance of a Balanced Lifestyle 

This is why living a balanced lifestyle  is so essential. First of all it lends Perspective to whatever you do. Secondly you learn to manage yourself and everything around you through moderation. and thirdly you set worthy expectations and life goals for yourself which don’t necessarily revolve around money, that’s why  you stick to the things you do when the going gets tough.  A balanced lifestyle allows you to understand:

  • Your prime wealth is your health.
  • Your purpose on earth is more important that any amount of money you get.
  • A balanced mind can enjoy more in misery than a disgruntled mind in a palace.
  • Taking might make you rich but only giving makes you wealthy.
  • The finer aspects of life like compassion, gratitude, humbleness, thankfulness, chivalry, respect, honor play much more of role than money in your life.

Being and Doing Balance

Most people are chasing visions which compels them to act constantly. At times their actions bears fruits at others they don’t. Many get disappointed at these obstacle and quit, many get disheartened and drop their energy levels.

The problem with constant action towards goals is high expectations. You start expecting that you will always get equal results for equal action, this leads to your downfall as life is very dynamic. Yes action is really essential in order to accomplish anything, but if we always act with an eye on the consequences we will be disappointed sooner than later.

Mindfulness – The Mantra for a Balanced Lifestyle 

You are better off just being in the moment as you act, detached from the consequences of your actions.  This will magnify your focus and thus efficiency, which will increase the probability of desired results.  It will also help you by providing contentment on the journey before you reach the destination.

Your infinite obsessions are ever changing, they wont ever let you be satisfied. The dopamine rush always demands more and more. But all the cars the currency cant be taken with you. you can thrive in your work along with fulfilling human functions of love, care and presence.

The importance of which is under rated because of the fastness of life. Try to live each moment with utmost awareness.  Be mindful of all the micro aspects that comprise each living moment. You will find out there is so much more to life than the struggle you put yourself through to get to a phantom ideal which keeps changing.

The Magic of Moderation

View this post on Instagram

संतुलन means equilibrium or balance, it also translates to temperance which means moderation in thoughts feeling and actions. One of the most essential aspects for this modern generation of focus deprived, cell phone swipers who have imbalanced themselves to the degree of immediately running away from the same things they choose not so long ago is to learn to be more mindful, so that they can be more aware of the moment at hand any give it their complete presence rather than waiting for the next dopamine rush. As these onstant gratification ladened minds evolve the lack of attention bandwidth becomes a part of their identity, things turn to people or tasks, the modern generation is as quick in running away when the going gets even moderately tough. What temperance helps you do is to believe in the beauty of your independent being and choose mindfully what you want to think, feel and do, it helps you invest energy in more lasting endeavours, it helps you form an identity so that you can be trusted. Otherwise your habit of running away feeds off your credibility and makes you a less trusted human. So before jumping into anything lucrative, a task, a relationship or any other opportunity practice moderation and temperance so that you are in it for the long run, because that's what makes the difference, if you involve yourself in temporal pleasures you will lose trust for yourself and exist with a tarnished self esteem , full of emptiness and sorrows.

A post shared by Dinkrit Sethi (@dinktionary) on

Life is not a competition of having more than neighbor, don’t work towards ego explosion, its a dynamo like trigger. which will occupy your being and deprive you of gratification, joy, bliss, happiness and inner peace. No matter how much you try to show off these aspects to the world through complicated rituals and flamboyant consumerism, these are things only you can enjoy with yourself.

Invest your energy in living a balanced lifestyle and see life smile back at you. Be more moderate with respect to the usage of your energies, divide them over things that fuel your mind, body and soul rather than exhausting them trying to chase things the society sets for you.

When you act in moderation and balance you define your own way of being and as result find contentment, otherwise you keep judging yourself based on what someone else thinks of you. A balanced lifestyle is a far cry for someone who believes a society with dynamic expectations  will allow them to find contentment with who they are and what they have.  Find the Magic in Moderation and you will be immune to social demands and define your own balanced lifestyle.

The Magic of Mornings – 7 Ways to Start your Day?

The decisions you make as soon as you wake up end up defining your day, which ends up defining your life. So it is essential to learn how to start the day before learning anything else.

The mystical powers of mornings cant be undermined, it is the time of the day when your awareness meets existence, your free will meets the flow of life. This is the reason everyone gets to define their day in their own way.

The majority who keep snoozing the alarm are simultaneously snoozing their struggles, the ones waking up with a spring in their step look forward to the prospects of countless opportunities that are veiled behind the clouds of laziness.

How to start your day?

Well actually there is no perfect way to start your day,everyone has to make their own. But there are few aspects which help you design your morning rituals in order to increase your energy levels and quality of life. These also help you be more productive and efficient, to maximize your organic potential.

start your day

As early as possible

The benefits of proper sleep can’t be undermined.. As mentioned in Sleep Shortcuts  you need to sleep at specific hours to complete rest when it comes to your brain and hormones which helps you with your energy levels through the day. Early rising is not only in accordance with your natural circardian rhythm, sleep cycle, but also gives you alone time in the morning, without the disturbances of people around you, to connect better with yourself without any influences.

Practice

Set an early morning wake up time and see how your body automatically re-arranges its sleep patterns.  Take baby steps and learn hacks to control sleep cycle by reading Sleep Shortcuts. 

Jump Start, When you snooze you lose – The  first few seconds when you wake up set a trend for the rest of your day.  They not only indicate the kind of life you live, something you want to avoid, or something you look forward to, but also  determine the direction it will go to, the one you decide or the one fate decides for you. When you jump start your day, you send a very strong signal to the universal energy. This optimism laden signal brings you more energy and fortune smiles on your positive attitude to add to it with some cosmic magic.

Practice

Don’t use an alarm clock, let your body adapt naturally. You might fail a few times and miss your time, but if you use an alarm, you keep alive the option of snoozing, to start your day with intent the decision has to come from your inner core.

Meditation and Affirmations – Man is a social animal, but a solitary being. This means you are blessed with free will, which sets you apart from everyone around you. So you don’t need anyone to approve what you feel about yourself, you have define it individually. For this an inner awareness through meditation  and an outer expression of your beautiful self through  affirmations is a must. Meditation means a lot of different things to a lot of different people, the basic ethos is to connect with your inner self, as a distinct part of the whole.

Practice 

Just notice your breathe for 2 mins as you wake up while deep breathing.  Keep one hand on your chest and the other on your stomach, when you inhale the hand on the stomach should move and the one on the chest should remain still. Breathing being the bridge between the tangible and the intangible, outer and inner, signifies a lot and helps you with realizing inner peace and magic.

I believe written affirmations are really effective, make a habit of writing  I AM followed by 40 qualities you have or inspire to have as one word of action (I am grateful, I am  Caring, I am Loving, I am successful) for 40 days and you will see how it all comems to you.

Gratitude, Forgiveness, Faith and Hope – Being grateful for what you have will get you more  of what makes you grateful. Forgiving oneself rids your from dream crushing guilt and forgiving others liberates you from their control. Faith reassures your  belief in the goodness of life and Hope helps you chase the extraordinary. Directing your attention towards these aspects early in the day, recentre’s your scope.

Practice

With eyes shut, Envision yourself as an insignificant particle of this cosmos. Slowly expand your being from where you are to the far corners of the universe. As you do, align yourself with the energy of each realm, the immediate realm around you, at your home, in your neighborhood, in your city on your planet, Expand to the entire solar system and float among the planets then the stars then all other dimensions.  As you expand, be perceptive of the awe inspiring amazingness which makes life and its multiple facets possible, be grateful for it, and from their will arise forgiveness, faith and hope.

Music and Motivational Video –  A motivating piece of content early in the morning and work wonders for you. It is said that everyone who listens to positive videos and music earlier on in the day, involves him or herself  in increasing the goodness of the planet.  Rather than just rushing through the morning and the day, these people are more mindful and add positive energy all around them, which is little of paying back the universe for the gift of life.

Practice 

These are some of the channels I like:

Other than physical aspect of cleanliness, it emits a vibe of clarity and discipline, completing the task of sleeping isn’t over till you make your bed, and whats best is when you come back home at night you get a well made bed to sleep on.

Hybrid Humans – Adapting to a Digital Lifestyle

As man’s interaction with technology gets more intimate we come to the understanding that a new species of Homo Sapiens has come to being.  They look like us, they talk like us, they speak like us, they are among us but they think differently. As the transitional generation of humans passes on the torch to the fully hybrid ones, I forsee even more amalgamation with technology.

The ones trying to avoid this digital revolution (check out Darwins  theory) are fighting a lost cause, the scale of interaction has long surpassed a state of withdrawal. Reading through this article  you will find out why you will be a fool to think about avoiding technology and why learning to manage it is a better aim.

All we can do now is to adapt to a digital lifestyle by inculcating good digital habits in ourselves and the people around us so that we,as humans, remain the masters of our work rather than losing out completely to technology..

Digital Diffusion – The New Networks

As an Urban Yogi it is easy for me to believe that there is a network of energy which connects all of us.  The causal energy governing all lives is also referred to as spirit, and is mentioned directly and indirectly in almost all religious texts.

This intangible energy helps us connect with other humans and align with some without even saying a word, based on the energy they emit..  This is why we seem to form an automatic  alignment with some strangers who are in the vibrational frequency  while we get bad vibe from others.

In the modern world such energy has been represented faintly by electrical energy and now is being represented by the digital network which affords you a digital lifestlyle.

The modern way of life is a diffusion between meditative and  cybernated worlds. Although meditation is a far wider concept which helps you connect to your innermost self but try moving your head around this.

When you shut your eyes you can be anyone or anywhere you want, modern technology helps you almost to do that through virtual reality, you have more scope of memory through the digital network and google.

Imagine the Possibilities of a Holistic Digital Lifestyle

As mentioned by  the modern world visionary Elon Musk in a podcast with Joe Rogan  the biggest problem now with  the digital interface is the slow input times. We either have to type or speak to access the information which is a very slow process when we compare it with how quickly our brain works.

The solution is a neural link in your brain, a device which will help you access the network through your thoughts.

Imagine the possibilities of a holistic digital lifestyle  where you just have to think about the topics you are interested in and being able to access terrabytes of data, as text,video and audio about it through your mind.

Imagine  ordering your Uber  with no need of taking out your phone, imagine communicating a message without needing to type, imagine watching a video by shutting your eyes, imagine self ordered groceries through Amazon by automated analysis of biological needs.   Imagine no need for books but still learning lessons, imagine saving your specific hybrid self in a hard drive and uploading the same on a different body, no death.

As new networks develop all these fantasies seem possible. Imagine, thinking about the modern digital lifestyle 15 years back, it was a fantasy which is now a reality.

ARTificial Intelligence

It is inevitable that we are bound to come up with a version of machines capable of thinking for itself.  It will mostly be a hybrid human, if you notice around you this hybridization has been initiated. All of you are part machines, in different proportions.

Over the last 15 years there has been more evolution than the previous 500 years. The rate of evolution is getting quicker and it will gather further pace with artificial intelligence.

My take on it is, we need to understand this digital diffusion is unavoidable now, but lets not lose our human-ness in front of technology. There are amazing possibilities which beckon yet lets not lose the specific traits which outline our species.

Lets try not to let our ARTisitic side die in a scientific world.  Lets meet the intelligent machines with the fullness  of our humanness. with traits such as Love, Compassion, Empathy, Humility and Gratitude. So that we end up defining our digital lifestyle.
