Guiding Intention That Can Change You And Those Around You…

what-are-you.jpg

Often we come across people who sulk over the fact that ‘Most of the events in their life do not turn out to be the way they wish them to or people don’t treat them the right way.’ Seldom do they know that each incident in their life is a manifestation of their own thoughts and intentions. Each event is a creation of their own conscious and sub-conscious mind.

In the words of Michael Forrester – “Intention is everything. What you experience daily in your life – how you act, what you speak and how you feel affects every human being around you. Once you realize the domino effect created by shining your light on others, it becomes very contagious.”

  • Try to find your own truth – Most of us have blind faith on belief systems that promise to solve our problems or ease our burden, even if they are not based on absolute truth. However, one must understand that wisdom is available only to those who are ready and have the courage to question what they have been taught. Try to find your own truth, no matter how hard it is for you and those around you, to accept your discovery. Never stop seeking the truth.Intention2.jpg

 

  • Believe anything is possible –  We as humans are nothing but energy and there is infinite potential in that energy. If you believe in yourself i.e. if you believe in the energy that you are, anything and everything is possible. Do not succumb to the limitations created by others and also the ones that you have imposed on yourself. No target is big or small in the eyes of the universe. If you believe that you can achieve it, YOU WILL!!Intention3
  • Serve Others – Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.’ – Muhammad Ali Nothing can beat the joy one experiences in serving others. Share all that you have in your kitty – Love, care, compassion, knowledge, money and it will bring you happiness, joy, satisfaction, reason to smile and all the other positive energies that exist.  It  is a universal law ‘You get what you put in.‘ Give out happiness and you will receive multiples of it, from all corners of this universe. Intention4.jpg

 

  • Understand that everything is where it is meant to be – Everything in this universe, emits vibrational frequency and when the frequency that we emit, matches with that emitted by a particular event or person, we attract them in our life. Hence, every event or individual, whether good or bad, crosses our path only when we attract them. At all other times, they are where they are meant to be. Hence, filter through the chaos in your life and that in the world and attract nothing but positive. This can be done by thinking positive all the time and thus, creating positive vibrational frequencies. Intention5.jpg
  • Express gratitude – Count your blessings and be thankful for each of them. Also, express gratitude for each failure that you encounter in your life, for it is a source of learning and growth. Once you have a grateful outlook on life, you will also have increased life satisfaction, happiness, optimism, hope and less of all those emotions perceived as negative.Intention6.jpg

 

  • Love yourself You can love and admire the beauty around you, only when you can love the beauty that resides within you. Do not seek approval from the outside world, acceptance from others will follow, if you accept yourself first. It is an ongoing self programming activity that you should undertake every second of your life and the change that you will experience will be breathtaking. Intention7.jpg

Old Fashioned Dating – The Man Plans, Picks and Pays!

A girl always dreams of her ‘Knight in Shining Armour’, a gentleman, who will sweep her off her feet and take her to the world of fancy. As romantic and whimsical it may sound, the old fashioned style of fairy tale dating is loosing it’s charm over the new age formula of online meet and greet.

Dating.jpg

In the era of technology and internet, the classic and by far the most romantic woo code of handwritten letters and likes have been taken over by the casual, platonic modes of expression, which fail to create the same magic as the former. Today, the young brigade finds it easy to hunt a romantic partner on a dating website or application thus, missing out on the charm of falling in love at first site or the charm of constant persuasion.

Guys! no matter which century you belong to, never forget the age old saying, ‘Old is Gold.’ Nothing can match up to the quaint style of seeking help of a wing-man in chasing your love interest and then asking her out on a date. This tried and tested approach is a hit among the girls and guarantees better chances of hearing a ‘Yes’ than several other modern day dating theorems.

Dating1.jpg

The prototypical dating rule book says that a man should never forget the three ‘P’s’ of dating etiquette.

1) Plan :- Never forget to plan the date well ahead of the D-day and spare the woman from taking the initiative. You are the one doing the asking hence, it is your duty to come up with something she will like. If you are not aware of her likes and dislikes, don’t miss out on the opportunity to get the hint or even better, ask her directly. A woman likes being with a man that has a plan. It makes her feel that she can relax and really enjoy herself.

Plan.jpg2) Pick :- ‘A gentleman never keeps a lady waiting.’ Always and I repeat ‘Always’ be on time. Get out of the car, walk to the door and ring the bell. It has become far to common for a person to text or honk, informing the lady that he is waiting for her outside. Most of you do not realize that 30 seconds worth of extra effort in walking up to her apartment can make such a difference and leave a lasting impression.

3. Pay :- This rule might sound absurd in the 21st century where some women will resent the notion that they need to be paid for on a date. However, most of them expect you to pay for most parts of the first one and being a gentleman, you would never want money to be an object of hindrance on your special day. Assume that you have to pay and if she insists on splitting the bill even after you have declined the offer once, then let her. Simple!

Apart from the three must do’s, you should also remember to –

  • Never go empty hand :- It is always a nice gesture to take some flowers or chocolates as a token of affection.
  • Turn the cell phone off :- Being interrupted with regular messages or phone calls can be a real turn-off for both of you.
  • Open the car door for your date :- This one will definitely grab her attention.
  • Make them the priority :- Give her all the attention for the day and she will never fail to acknowledge the effort.
  • Be yourself :- Don’t pretend! Be who you really are and win her over!

Follow the quintessential norms of dating and woo the girl of your dreams in style. If you like the idea, don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. Sharing is caring. You never know, one of them might have a date round the corner.

Wishing you luck

There is more to life…

It’s the crack of dawn and as a part of a regular practice, I friction my eyes open to read some quotes on this app called ‘Pinterest’, where amidst all the engaging locutions, a set of them caught my attention- “there is so much more to life than finding someone who would want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t.”

I must admit, this one was of particular interest to me because, much to my dismay, I had been brooding over a broken relationship last year and no! I am not talking about a romantic relationship, but one with my friend from college days. We two were inseparable, we lived in each other’s pockets would be a better way to define the bond we shared. But, as they say, all good things must come to an end” and so did our friendship.

Without spilling the details of our break-up, as I term it ( LOL!! ) I would want you to know that there were no high intensity altercations involved in the process, which was as simple as ‘ I have new set of friends, a new life and a new career to look forward to and hence no time and energy to keep-up with the old ones.’ it could not get more silly than this, but yes! this is exactly what her behavior conveyed, something that would never go down well with a relationship keeper that I am and it did not. As a result of which, I stopped giving my share of time to the friendship which  eventually crumbled.

Post 2

Coming back to the quote that I had read earlier in the morning which further said- “There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself, you need to fill yourself with love. Not anyone else.” It was this particular part of the quote that made me recall the incident and how much time I had spend sulking over the fact that the friendship was maybe, never that important for her.

How many of us do the same thing on a regular basis?

Grieve over broken hearts, broken friendships and broken commitments…

Only if we could understand, there is so much to more to life than spending it on people who might not value us as much as we value them, it would be much easier for us to live. Often I see people fretting about the recent break-up they had with their romantic partner or like in my case, about an old friend turning his/her back or about somebody not living up to their words of commitment. We should not forget that no two of us are cut from the same cloth, what might be important for us, might not be as important for somebody else.

Life copy

It’s a known fact that expectations are the root cause of all the miseries in life and it stands true in this case as well. Why expect somebody else to be the reason behind your smiles? Why can’t you do it for your own self? You need to fill yourself with love first, before doing it for someone else. You need to become a whole being on your own and not expect somebody else to be around to complete you.

Be your own best friend. You can do that by going on adventures alone, treating yourself over a coffee and a book, spending sometime alone, trying to know your inner self better, working on your own flaws and several other ways which will not require anyone else to be the center of your universe, on the contrary, it will make YOU the center of your own world and trust me when I say- It is not any less beautiful but more… 

Love
