After long time :)


So much to write, so much has happened in the past 1 month.

Navarathiri celebrations in ashram, Attended student college culturals,  did very intelligent work for company, did awesome mind blowing seva, Lost my temper in class ( thanks to skipping lunch and acidity :)). These were  interspersed with bouts of laziness, self blame, late night gossip,moments of  sheer awareness, wanting it even more and more.

Will write about all of this. The following post is about a realization which i had.

In Life the “simple things are the hardest to do.

Following , a list of such simple absolutely straight forward things which one does not do. They are Not in any particular order.

a) Folding the bedsheet after getting out of bed. b) Switching of fans and lights while leaving room. c) Eating the right quality and quantity of food. Not having the extra morsel d) Washing feet and hand when we come back to our houses e) Eating ice cream when one has a running nose f) Appreciating/praising/complementing someone. g) Getting up, brushing teeth and not reading newspaper h) Not visiting that porno site 😉 i) Doing kriya infact just starting the first stage pranayam j) shaving [for me regularly] 🙂 l) prefering to read newspaper, watching TV and farting instead of going to loo m) Coming back home and watching tv, changing channels aimlessly n) Rushing to office, and checking forwards 0)Doing a spell check, grammar of mail/document before you send it. p)Checking air pressure of vehicle weekly……….and on and on and on and on ……..

If you would like to add to the list, do add it as a comment. One more ” Reading an awesome blog and not commenting on it ;). ”

I realized that postponing or not giving importance to such simple simple things really prevent us from doing the bigger things in life. Not being able to do these activities just shows how much garbage is accumulated in the mind.

I wish i had this boon, for every rational thought, the power to take an immediate rational action. 🙂 Please dont even ask for the same boon without the word rational.

Eagerly waiting for your simple list of things which you dont do.
