We all are living two lives. The life we are living right now, breathing our lungs in out, our heart beating 72 times every minute, living a lifeless routine and then there is another life, a un-lived life within us, a life we always dream off, a life our soul cherishes to live and our heart wants to fall in love with and
Between this two lives, stands a vice i.e. LAZINESS
Have you ever brought home a treadmill and let it gather dust ? Ever quit a diet, a course of yoga, a meditation practice, A workout program, a personality development course?. Have you ever heard your invoice call you to embark upon a spiritual practice and dedicate yourself to a humanitarian calling, committing your life to the service of others? Have you ever wanted to be a philanthropist, a doctor, an advocate for the weak and helpless, to stand for the state elections, fight for the planet, campaign for world peace, or to preserve the environment? In the silent hours of the night, have you experienced a vision of the person you might become, the work you could accomplish, the enlightened being you were meant to be? Are you a writer who doesn’t write, a painter who doesn’t paint, an entrepreneur who never started a venture ? a director who never directed his movie ?
If you are one, I come to you, for like you even I am one lazy being who keeps procrastinating his goals and ambitions. Yes its difficult to be hard on yourself, yes its tough to be disciplined but I believe at the end of it, its all worth it. I am always in look out for motivation, always in search of inspiration I could lay my hands on. For they pump me up, my motivation and source of inspiration could be anything. Mostly I get them from books I read, people I meet and incidents that happen around. Just a recent example, yesterday I read somewhere, the more you share your knowledge, the more it increases. So i started a blog today, to share some great things and learn some new things.
Life always confronts us with questions and in the lullabies of social life and noise of professional life, we are all lost, unable to confront life back with answers. The struggles I go through, I am sure even you are going through. I shall seek those answers in the books I read, in the people I meet and the incidents that happen around. When I do, I shall share them with you. So for a while, just believe that we all are batman going through our inner turmoil, facing our own tragedies but we cannot let our problems pull us down, we need to rise above them and save the world.
So every time I post a post, do this ,”Drink some coffee, read the post, take notes, apply them in your life and share it with your friends.” Let’s face our fears, lets call out life in the arena and confront it
“Dear life, Bring it on maaaaaaaan”
