”Your body is just a cover. It is only there to help and communicate with other. What matters is the Aatma.”
I have read such and related thoughts numerous times. Once a thought is repeated to you so many times, it has a tendency to affect you. My problem is that I understand it but fail to implement it. A part of my mind loves the thought. The other acts exactly opposite to it. The human tendency to reject ugliness is deeply sown into the brain. That makes it difficult to judge someone from their appearance. Even if you are able to judge, You will reject the idea in case if it’s ugly.
When you go to the market, This ability acts as a boon. It helps you in buying groceries, fruits, vegetables, clothes and so on. Here the appearance often plays a big role. If an apple doesn’t look good from outside, It won’t be good from inside most of the times. Although there is a practice to wax the apples to make them shine so as to fool the buyer. Some are fooled due to this extra shine. Vegetables, are as good as they appear. So is the case of clothes. Such decisions condition our mind to reject ugliness.
I am still trying to get around this. I understand that the person in front of me is genuine. He is kind hearted. But if he doesn’t appear good, then I blacklist him. I stay away. I don’t know how many people, good people I have missed because of this trait. Though it has reduced substantially, I still think I can do better. I want to do better.
As they say, Do not judge a book by its cover.
Let’s see how long it takes me to implement this.
Unknowingly… I couldn’t think of better start. Thinking is a mystery process. It can create beautiful things. When done wrong way it can create things like what you see in this blog. The Nonsense. We start thinking of something. The process of thinking starts and it finishes when you reach to a conclusion which you think is it’s end. This simple process is very complex but we do it unknowingly.
Have you noticed Windows, the OS you always curse. It’s got a progress bar when it’s loading. It is processing in background and in the end it renders a beautiful interface with which you can interact with computer. As a Windows user you must have gone through a phase when it gets stuck at the loading phase. The progress bar keeps scrolling horizontally bringing all the bad words you ever know for Bill gates. Irritation. Similar happens when you think.
The progress bar gets stuck and in return you are stuck. You get confused. You are body less person. You are only head now which like surrounded by five brothers of your girlfriend punching you. Nothing else feels other than your head. The best part is, you have to think on how to stop thinking. Some more punches. Your head is size of pumpkin about to burst. What to do then?
Just find the body and rest the head on it. The pain will get transferred to the body and you’ll get relief. The progress bar moves ahead ready to render fresh thoughts.
I am going through the same phase and it’s my personal experience. Just use extra weights in your gym and see this thing working. I got a relief from all the thoughts fired at me from all direction. Not just quiet ready to think what I love to think.
But that should not stop you from thinking.
Till I get ready…
That is an out of the world checklist. Do you ever forget to clean some parts while taking a bath? For me it’s not possible. I never thought of such things. Just nonsense….
I finished my dinner tonight and went to bathroom to wash my mouth. As always happens I was not happy with the dinner. I am trying to get rid of this bad habit. When I opened the tap my eyes just went on to the wall. There was this creature which looked familiar. But there was something missing. A close look confirmed that it was snail.
It’s been a long time since I saw snail. Earlier they were in plenty around my house. Just like the missing touch me not, I am lucky to find these. Surprisingly the missing touch me not just grew outside my house. Now here was the time for snail to show his presence. It is not that I am attracted towards such silly things, but I love to have them around. Continue reading →
