2012 in Review – 1

2012 – Another fantastic year I enjoyed.

2012 journey started at Pune and I am writing this post from Noida. At the beginning of 2012,

In Jan, my sister got married, just to increase hopes from me to get married soon 🙂 But I successfuly survived with my bachelorhood.

Feb, I met an amazing personality who gave me blueprint of my life.. To reduce my anxiety.

March, I started giving interviews for change of job and got 3 offers in hand.

April, I selected wrong project for myself. Faced toughest time in my professional life with a very hard to deal with Team lead…. May be his stress… But, as i write this post, probably I will be relocated to Mumbai for good.

May – Oct, Each month I changed my accommodation.. Tough time in office continues. To add to that, I had night shifts (I wanted to experience it n its really not good, as was advised by many)

Nov – Went to see a girl, searched by parents n dramatic turn of events ended up rejecting that proposal. Got hurt by her parents remark ‘ Na sunkar dukh to hua hai’ During this turn of events, I realised, I have already met the one (according to blue print too). Yeah, I like her 🙂 (choosing words very carefully 😉 ) BUT she is waiting for a businessman from Punjab, which I am not!!

Dec – comes the good news that I will be released from project. But at the same time, spending more than 12 hours in office.

Learning in 2012, spiritual n financial progress in next post….                                                                                     To be cntd…


Dussehra Special YES!+

Dussehra Special YES!+

Let us win over vices and realize our True Potential with fantabulous YES!+ Workshop @ Sec 71, Noida.

Skill of Living

Have a desire in your mind to experience the Divine Light. The higher goals in life can be realized only through a few minutes of meditation and introspection. A few quiet moments are a source of creativity. Some time during the day, sit for a few minutes, get into the cave of your heart, eyes closed, and kick the world away like a ball. But, rest of the time, be 100% attached to your work. Eventually, you will be able to be both attached and detached. This is the skill of living, THE ART OF LIVING.
-Sri Sri

Job Satisfaction – A Myth!

No body would like to die, sitting in front of computer, debugging a code! If everything is normal, one would like spending time with family, friends, loved ones or serving society or playing… etc.

One may start enjoying the job, but lets be clear on this – You do job for money and not because it gives you satisfaction. If you think, your job gives you satisfaction – Just answer this question – Would you continue going to office, if your company stops paying you. On the other hand, planting trees, bringing somebody in knowledge, bringing smile on somebody’s face makes you happy, however it doesn’t give you any money. It gives you satisfaction. YES!

So when it’s clear that you work for money, use logic, your brain for your job and not emotions. Of course, give 100% in your job too but don’t mix emotions there.

Job, Hobby and Service are three different things. Don’t mix it!

How do I improve family ties?


Question : How do I improve family ties?
Sri Sri. :  To improve family ties, don’t try to improve it. Don’t try to get over the misunderstanding. If there is a misunderstanding, just overlook that.
Educate and ignore. Move forward. Don’t do postmortem, i.e., sit and dig, ‘Why did you say that?’, ‘You don’t love me’, all this garbage is such a waste of time. We dwell into so much emotional garbage. We should throw them all out and have bubbling enthusiasm. You should move with enthusiasm.
If someone lacks enthusiasm, push them into enthusiasm, and do not go on complaining or asking for explanation from people.
To improve family relations you need two things – No Explanations and No Complaints. That’s it. Got it?
Asking explanation from others is a foolish thing. And explaining to others thinking they would understand is another foolish thing. It doesn’t work both ways. The best is to just move forward.


Accident that I saw LIVE

Yesterday after watching Amazing Spiderman at Spice, Noida when I was returning to my PG in a ric I saw a terrible accident – Skoda hitting santro. It was so bad – Skoda took 1 turn and it was then standing on it’s right door instead of wheels around 100meters away and Santro reduced in size to almost 1/3rd with engine gone.

Just before the accident, the thought that crossed my mind was “All I have is this moment”. And I specially remembered this because I thought of making it my Status Message and the next moment as the cars hit, I chanted Om Namah Shivay and asked ric to stop immediately. As I saw nobody was injured in Santro – 5 people including 2 children, I ran towards Skoda. By  that time almost 15-20 people were gathered there. It was around 11:15pm then. There was only one guy in Skoda and he  was also safe. He came out from car’s broken front cover and started talking on mobile.

As everybody was safe, I turned back to ric thinking now there is no point staying there and listen to whole blame game and drama. Meanwhile another gentleman stopped his car near Santro and offered help to ladies and kids in Santro to drop them home safely as he knew the man in Santro was to witness big drama ahead. It was for sure the mistake of guy in Skoda. He was driving as if he was king of the road and his car is accident proof.

Now as I write I understand there is no point connecting events as “There are 100s of reasons for a cause and there are 100s of causes for a reason”. In short everything is just a Happening.

This was what was coming to my mind, just after accident, as I sat in ric again –

As nobody was injured in such a terrific accident, is it the power of my Om Namah Shivay. I know my words carry power but this much! Next thought was, is it because there was Sudershan Kriya tape in my bag. Next was – it’s such a nonsense to even think this. Next was – Noida is not a safe place to live in. Next was, Money is not your security in life. Next was – All I have is this moment and I brought back big smile on my face, made my resolve stronger to make this place a better place to live in.

Be Contented!

When you do something good work, you want to keep doing more and so you don’t feel contented

When you are not able to do, then also you don’t feel contented.

Learn to be contented in any situation. Know that there is no end to work. Mind needs to cultivate habit to be contented.

What you can do, just do it and be contented.
What you can not do, just surrender it and be contented.
What you intend to do, make a sankalpa & surrender and be contented.

Goal Setting

Today I took this 45mins session, Goal Setting , for YES!+ volunteers in Hingewadi. Being the first session of this kind that I was taking, I wanted it to be small. It went all well.

Few of the feedback after session:

Pallavi :

1. I got a clear vision.

2. I could do it in one hour for which I was thinking for past two years.

3. Some points were crystal clear about my goals after the session.

Abhishek – Clarity of ideas discussed in front of me.

Yogesh – It made me more stronger to hold my goal and gave me time to think about new ways for that.

4. Pooja – It was Analytical. It forced to think about our goals which we normally never sit and think of. Not only goals but the means to achieve goals, whether goals are contradictory or not.

I will have to make it more structured next time.

The way I took the process is a secret ;). But the points covered were:

1. Putting time limit. And fear that does not let us do so. As we need to take some action with time limit set.

2. Quantifying

3. Whether goals are contradictory

4. Back in mind – goals – Personal – Material/Spiritual, Family, Service, etc

4. Inherent conflict in the world. And so sync between thought and action as while driving vehicle.

5. Benefits of focused effort like water in river

6. Goals worth aiming
