Perspective on life

Today I happened to listen to a motivational speaker. Listening to him, I felt like sharing his words here. Not exactly his words, but the message is same. I got different angle of looking at life today after I listened. It is eye opening. He asked the following questions one by one.

You are born because of?

Others.

Your name is given by?

Others.

Your resources such as meat, vegetables etc by?

Others

The love and affection you receive are from?

Others

The money you earn while working are given by?

Others

The respect you earn are given by?

Others

When you die the last rites are given by?

Others

The wealth you earn when you are alive is given or taken by?

Others

So, Why don’t we all close our eyes and think a minute is it that we are the ones who do every thing. No your existence itself is because of others. Once you start thinking that you don’t do any thing alone, the people around do for you, then you slowly will develop compassion for others. People who always says “I worked hard, I did this for you, I stepped up to achieve this” should realize that it is not I, it is we.

Knowledge is to share. I gained this knowledge yesterday and I felt I should share this to whoever is reading my blog. I believe in positive things. Last few years, I have changed and only positve I see. I donot have time for negativity in my life. Share this message, Repost this message if you like.

Mental health day

October 10- Mental health day. I wanted to write this on that day, however time constraints did not let me do that.

Radio show I usually listen to stated that 500,000 Canadians miss work due to mental health problems. That is a quite large number. The problem I see is that most of them don’t want to talk about it. I have taken first aid on mental health. The knowledge I got from that course I use daily at my life. I encourage every one to take this course in their life time atleast once.

I do have a mixture of employees work for me. Every one comes from different ethnic background. They all adapt to same working conditions differently. As a manager I realize that and i have over the years adapted to their understandings. I now can sense when they come to work with mixed feelings.

One important tool, I gain by doing the course is talk to these people. I can listen to them now, I do understand the difficulty. I understand it is not a disease. One excercise we did was to bring out two people from the class. Rest of them stayed where they were. Instructor asked the two people come back in to the class room and start yelling at the students ear. The students were asked to talk to each other about a family problem. At the same time the person yelling in to their ears saying “Don’t listen to them, They are bad, They are going to kill you”

We realized that is how people live daily. If you don’t live in their shoes, you will not understand. I want to help them. I leave my office open at all times. At any time my employee wants to talk about family issues or any other personal issues, they are welcome to come and take it out. It does help.

Prior to this course, I had hard time listening. I usually give solutions and try to get on with other things. Then I realize the solutions I give may not work for them. Or they already tried that. If I don’t listen fully, how can i give them suggestions?

I also took Leaders as coaches course, where you get exposed to become a coach. I have effectively listened and help three staff. I am sure they are thankful to me. I also understand as a manager, this kind of help will motivate them.

First aid course have given me insight to mental health. Also given me the tools to analyze a person when they show up for work.

Please do realize that we can help and we need to tame our mind to do that. Thanks for reading. Prayers to all those suffer and hope they all get help from some one who cares.

Birthdays.

I don’t like birthdays. Simple. I have many reasons.

  1. What is so special about coming to this world?
  2. You see a lot of issues just because you are here.
  3. You see pain and sufferings just because you are here.
  4. You wish you have control on certain problems, just because you happened to be here.
  5. Your work and issues related with that, just because you happened to be here.
  6. War and politics, you see just because you are here.
  7. You are helpless, just because you are here.
  8. Crime and death you see, just because you are here.
  9. You are bullied just because you are here
  10. You are always judged, just because you are here
  11. Your faith, believe, responsibilities all questioned, just because you are here.
  12. Your race, color, nationality all under review, just because you are here.

Above reasons I listed doesn’t mean I hate life. I love my life. I wonder why people celebrate birthdays not death. I think it should be other way around. Death should be celebrated. He or she finished her so called duty here on earth deserves to be celebrated. There are many beliefs out there states, we are send here for a reason. I do not see anything, why people are here creating lot of hatred?  Is that the reason why God send us here? Then I will say birthdays are the worst day in ones life. These days people fight each other in the name or religion, faith, country, color, race and even for possessions. No love. Screw birthdays my friends. I am scared for my children. This world is going in the direction where there will be no love left.

I always said, I will write to encourage positiveness. I hope writing this will make some people to think about love. We people should love each other. Then birthdays will find its meaning. Till then, I think deathday is the one we should celebrate.

Loved my writing. Please do buy my experiences in a book format. Link below.

 

 

FOMO- What is this?

FOMO- Fear of missing out. It is a new thing among new generation. Social media nowadays rule lives. This is condition nowadays. I have to say it is not good for mental health. Every one wants to be informed about everything every second.

I see people buried their heads on their gadgets while walking on the road. I always wonder, how come these people are so ignorant. They are missing a lot out in the real world around them. Even in sky trains, they do not bother to look outside.

When I was growing up, people watching and vehicle watching are done by every one. At least we were aware what is happening around us. These days no one really knows what happened just around them. They always want to be connected with social media.

If they don’t check this fear of missing out will take over them. For example, there is a party they all attended. Then they will post the pictures in social media. They all will like them and talk about them. What I don’t understand is why they have to talk about it when they all have attended this together. It is FOMO.

So people please enjoy nature atleast when you are out and about. Social media and your friends there will always be there. Enjoy the sun, Enjoy the flowers. Feel the wind, feel the rain. Smile at others who walk by. Say hello to them. Bring back the oldies friends. It is very important for our survival. We are creating people who only knows how to communicate over social media. Stop it. We can do that.

Enjoyed my writing. here is my preview of my book. Read it.  if you like the preview. Buy it and review it on amazon. Thank you friends. See you later.

 

 

Mata, Pita, Guru, Daivam

Those who have some connection to India will get the heading. If you don’t here it is

Mata means Mother

Pita means Father

Guru means Teacher

Daivam means God

That is the order I am taught to follow and respect. How many of us out there who calls God whenever there is a problem. I suggest, call you Mom. Her words and love will take away half of your misery. This Day and Age, we all are busy.
At work I see many of us go through hard days. I have seen many looking up and say why God why? I suggest calling your Dad. I am sure the experience he got in his life will give you solutions. He might have same circumstances in his life. He may be able to say Son or daughter, do this.

I have seen many times parents look up and say God, what will do, my kids are not listening. They are not doing what I like them to do. I don’t understand where I am failing. I am providing everything for them. I suggest, Call their teacher or your teacher. I am sure they will have the insight we are missing. They deal with them day in day out.

In my perspective God has given all the solutions we need. We are just ignorant and we just call him now and then. We should say thanks to him for his ways of loving us and giving the resources he provided for us.

Finally I want to thank God for helping me in my life and at the same time helping me to put together my book.

Paying Respect to ancestors

Hello every one,

Today I am in the mood of salvation. The faith I believe in says, once we die we have a transition period to move to eternal space. I don’t know because I have never travelled like that yet or met anyone who have travelled. I wish I had that kind of power who can talk to spirits to find that.

Yesterday was the day in South India, everyone does pay respect to all their ancestors. The practice is simple, they all go to temple where a priest will guide them to do the rituals. One of the step is to feed the ancestors on this auspicious day. My parents both did the same yesterday. I had done this ceremony when I was in India for my Great Grand Mother, who I dearly miss. I do believe she is my guardian angel.

Today, I asked my father, why we feed ancestors only one day of the year? I asked that as a joke. To my surprise he had an answer which opened my eyes. At the same time he had logical explanation to it. I thought I should share this.

He told me when ancestor pass away, they travel to a place where 365 days earth days is one day for them. So for us humans we feed them once a year, but for them it is every day there. He also told me one day may be in future we may find that planet where they go. Just like now we know Mars days are not same as earths. So there is logic to it.

Those who read this may think I am crazy. But hey, You never know what we discover tomorrow or in the coming years. Many generations ago cell phone was not even an idea. They may have talked about it. Those days I am sure people believed that the idea is crazy. But look, now it is a reality. We may not find our ancestors living in that planet, But we could be finding a planet where one day is 365 days in earth.

Thanks for reading guys. If you like. Please comment, share, follow or read my book
