Let me start off by saying, a desi uncle carrying his lunch in a VS bag was the highlight of my day. He was totally rocking it too! I am detoxing, yes that can be very dangerous to many who know me. I think there are some who are just not meant to detox, especially those who are foodies like me. My life is surrounded by food, wake up think food, come to work think food, sleep reading food magazines. Can you imagine a day without coffee, okay so maybe I am an addict. But I did great and I am on my third day and all the people in my family and life are alive (maybe happy too that they don’t have to eat my experiments or put up with me being so hyper all the time). This week has been a pretty interesting week, spiritual wise I would say. I think the situations around have made me truly believe in karma and that when you have a true passion and believe, you will achieve. Faith can truly move mountains, maybe the view after the mountain is not what you had imagined, but the mountain will be moved for you. It is very important in life to know what is it that you want exactly, what is your calling in this world? I sat to write down the goals and what is it that I expected from myself and my mind was blank. Well part of the blankness might have to do with lack of food and caffeine, should have known better to not take up that task this week. But regardless it was something that really got me thinking that your words do have power, as do your thoughts. I take full responsibility for the situation that I am, not because of my actions but because of my thinking. I know it seems easy to read, and not a big thing but in totality it is the hardest thing you will do. You think fitness for your body is hard? Try fitness for your mind and you will realize how difficult it is. We are so wired with the belief system of the society of our parents that no matter how much you try to think differently you automatically go back to the same thinking.
I am no expert in this matter, but I am a firm believer in if your mind can think it your life and body can achieve it. We sometimes feel mad at our parents for not thinking the way we do, or to not have evolved. How often do we fail to see that we think exactly like that? If we want to change something, we have to change ourselves. There is nobody else in this world that you can influence or change, you could talk to them and say good words but in the end it is they who have to do it. You never will be able to do it for them, same way if you want to change a situation you can only change your thinking and the way you react not the other person. Maybe it is too late for our parents to change now due to the way the brain is wired, but it is not late for us to start. I think the world would be a much better place if we didn’t judge and just let people live, kindness go a long way. As it said in the movie “where there is kindness there is goodness, and where there is goodness magic happens.”
