The video above reflects only a well nourished soul can radiate or attract eternal love. The essence of Love lies in understanding subtleties not gross displays of afffection. The video throws light on how only a full cup can overflow to spread what it has.
Media creates projections of love to influence younger generations. to get attached and seek wholeness in another person Yet only the ones who see beyond these lies find themselves, love themselves, and become capable of loving someone else.
The energies of a human soul are too strong to be controlled, they can only be caressed. Only those who are capable of caressing their own souls can do the same to other ones. This process of self awareness and self love is an individual imperative everyone has to work on by them selves.
Yes these things are easier said and hard to practice. But you will keep learning your lessons and getting attached to different people to find the perfect connection till you truly internalize the concept of loving oneself first.
So fill your own void and then nourish your own soul before aligning with another. As you are not only getting yourself into something you are dragging another soul into it.
With the digital revolutions at its peak everyone wants to possess the best smartphone. But most of the times the best smartphones ends up possessing you. The best smartphones these days has more technology than devices used to put man on the moon. It has so much potential but most of it is wasted by how it is being used.
Here are some honest questions which will help you rate yourself with respect to how you use your smartphone:
Do the best smartphones control you or you control them?
If your push notifications for social media are switched on you are a slave to your smartphone as the lights on your phone control your attention.
Are you digital contributor or a digital spectator?
Do you merely go around from post to post of the social networking mediums hunting for gossip and news(its hard to tell the difference these days) or do you use your best smartphones to contribute your specific magic/talent to the people around you. The basic ingredient to be a contributor is to be self aware and understand your specific niche. You can easily be famous these days, but not just for gossiping or posting selfies.
How impulsive are you with your best smartphone?
There is no doubt that your best smartphones are like a new organ in your body. But how dependent are you on it? Do you pick it up without any reason just to avoid the awkwardness of reality? Or does picking it up hold any special significance like answering a call, having relevant chats or motivating or inspiring someone.
Are your relationships being dictated by your smartphone?
Most modern relationships are a direct consequence of social networking sites. People who cant stand each other for 15 mins face to face can spend hours and hours chatting about an ideal world which is virtual. Yes your best smartphones foster connectivity but when it comes to real relationships, the smartphone is a tertiary resource rather than a primary one.
How much time can you spend without your smartphone? How much time do you spend without your best smartphones before sleeping or after getting up ?
This will help show you how conditioned and dependent you have become. If a device which was not even existing 15 years from now is controlling your life, then its high time that you start introspecting.
If you reflect on these questions with honesty you will come to a good understanding as to why better connections are made where the network is low.
The best way to use your Best Smartphones
So what is the best way of utilizing your smartphone?
Just like being overdependent on your smartphone is not ideal, similarly it is not right to give it all up and live in a technological vacuum. Finding the right balance is the key to maximizing the potential of your best smartphones.
Start using the wonderful cameras of your smartphones to document your life. For that you will first need to have a lifestyle worth documenting. That doesn’t mean you try to create a fake one. only authenticity sells in the digital domain. So, live your passions and document them. It will firstly help you to understand what your passion is and secondly be more productive with it.

Introspection in Isolation– Yes they might say its harmful and depressing, but only you understand whatever situation comes your way fully. So if you spend time introspecting in isolation you will get newer perspectives of looking at the problems you face and understanding them better. From there you can decide how to best ignore or find a cure.
Slow it Down– In chaos only those find clarity who can be mindful of the micro sensations that take place. So when you slow your life sown, you give yourself the opportunity of understanding the situation and your own emotions pertaining to the situation. If you avoid or try to overlook problems, they keep snowballing into a bigger issue.
Meditation is Magic– Meditation brings you solutions from deep within. When you find inner peace, you find solutions. When you align yourself with the cosmic consciousness your thought processes becomes energized to superhuman potential.
Prepare a Positive Paradise– Straight from the music you listen, to the videos you watch, to the books you read, you have to ensure that you control what you feed your brain. Turn off your phone notifications and control the smart phone rather than letting it control you. Don’t involve in social media mongering and prepare a positive paradise.
Share with Care– Be very mindful of who you share your struggles with. Always look at the advise you get. There will be very few who can understand the situation and provide you with optimistic solutions. So it is in your best interest to find your own solutions.

My Weekend Box Office Tip – Coping with Handicaps
Life startles you at times, and it startles you more when you are awakened to the magic sprinkled around you. Common situations carry invaluable lessons. Learning these is the secret to an abundant and fulfilling life. One of these lessons which I learnt as a result of two different, difficult situations is the weekend box office tip I would want to give you all. Coping with handicaps.
The story behind the tip
I had a terrible injury 2 weeks back, when my left ankle twisted. The ankle was swollen like a ball and I feared the worst. Considering my health and fitness centric lifestyle it was a body blow and a big blast before Diwali. With so many caring people around me, it was impossible to even think about restarting my fitness schedule(which, as some of you might know, is like oxygen to me).
After two days I couldn’t control the urge of heading to the gym, and overlooking medical advise, did just that. But understanding the responsibilities on my head, of selling luxury properties in Navi Mumbai and being a long term health influencer, I adapted my workout so as to negate the journey altogether. (I will share how later on in this article.)
(Check my foot in the pic below)
Selling luxury properties in Navi Mumbai gets my attention to the second handicap. With so many rules and laws, demonetization, RERA, GST, applied in such a short time, the dimensions of doing business in India have changed drastically. Real Estate is one of the worst hit, because of ticket sizes and the omnipresent trust issues in the field.
Demonetization sucked out the money from the system, which was essential for businesses like real estate, at it was second nature for the business. RERA and GST added more confusion than removing it because of the complicated procedures and added tax burden to end users.
These major handicaps to the industry definitely increased the scope of excuses for people failing to sell properties, but I, just like with my sprained ankle, am learning how to adapt and cope with this handicap.
What Coping with the sprained Ankle taught me about Selling Luxury Properties?
The weekend box office tip, coping with handicap, was learnt with the sprained ankle and is coming to my assistance while selling properties.
What I understood with my sprained ankle and applied to selling properties is:
Limited but effective movement– Choosing a few effective movements was the need of the hour with my sprained ankle. Similarly choosing a few good methods for marketing property and being absolutely involved in them was what I carried to my work
More mindful movement– Attention to detail was magnified during my movements with the sprained ankle. The handicap in the business, has given me an opportunity to micro manage processes which were considered tertiary earlier.
Some time off only leads to self discovery– The cycle of pursuing passions puts you in an infinite loop of doing. Spending some time out of it not only helps you discover more about yourself but also cater to the aspects of life you haven’t been giving importance. Lesser time at the gym courtesy the sprained ankle made me rediscover my passion for reading. Similarly the handicapped nature of the market made me take more time out for family and friends.
The power of persistence– With the power of persistence all handicaps can be handled. My ankle is doing better and so is how I deal with my sales. By trying out newer exercises and methods of training I coped with my limited movement. Similarly redefining strategies and innovations have helped me come to terms with the real estate market.
Utilizing these I was able to recreate a new self image, which is both strong and resourceful. The signs of progress are noticeable in the videos below which is made to assist lazy people in working out, which I just created a few days back.
As for selling luxury properties the renewed optimism is bearing good results. Attention to details and innovations is bringing in a revolution which is leading to a more professional and organised approach to insure proper functioning and elevated sales.
You might not have a sprained ankle or selling luxury properties in a bearish market. But the above Weekend Box office Tips can be applied in every walk of life where you feel handicapped.
