Do what is right.

​Today i watched the movie Rustam on tv and over thinker that i am cannot help analyze the movie from various angles especially from relationship and human behaviour point of view :).
The movie is about a Navy officer who is on some onshore assignment away from his wife. While he is away his wife isnt able to resist the temptation of having an affair presumably due to lonliness and other circumstancial situations.
The officer on coming back comes to know about it and in a fit of rage kills the person his wife was involved it leading to court case which forms core of the story.
Finally he gets acquited and also forgives his wife and they are again together.
Temptations are part of our life and it is also important to remember that  several thing which seem fun and innocent while they are happening could lead to disastrous and unexpected outcomes.
Who does not like attention, care, pampering…especially it appears more enchanting when it comes from a person of opposite gender. 
We may bask in the new found glory of self importance and think that we “deserve” such attention and friendly affection.
While the same attention may not be given by our spouses (owing to familiarity or because of humdum of life ), one sometimes tends to justify such liaisons….Our mind plays games and tricks us into believing that a little flirting and fun talk is innocent , unharmful and acceptable.
One must be beware of such tricks played by mind. In today’s age of social media, smartphones there is no need to physically meet someone to have “little innocent fun” and that “special friend” is just a click away 🙂
We also get over confident of our “wisdom”, “gyan” and “rationality” and feel that everything will go only as far as we would allow it to be and that nothing will and can go “out of control”. 
The line between “good friend ” and love is very thin and we never realize when that zone could change and create havoc despite all our confidence on our abilities.
I have heard a saying that there is no right way to do the wrong thing 🙂 :).
So if you are going through such phase, take note of it, be determined and resist those innocent temptations now !!. It may hurt in short run but will be worth in the long run. ☺☺

A visit to an art gallery.

​This week was good in terms of number of holidays. There were two consecutive ones on account of Dussehra and Moharram ☺☺
We visited Nehru planetarium Worli for the first time and the experience was good if not great.

Then on coming out we accidently saw an exhibition of paintings. I realized the place was Nehru centre. We really enjoyed watching paintings from different artists.

These particular painting depicting mother child relationship by artist Sangita (if i correctly recall ☺) we found really cute. I also complimented her for such beatiful ones. Without wasting more words i am posting them here ☺☺

Today’s Gyan

This is what I learnt today at the yoga centre. The three C’s which are important for us are as follows:

a) Collection: Collecting virtues from people you encounter. Try to look for the virtues in people instead of looking for their defects and try to imbibe those good qualities.

c) Connection : connect with the Supreme one through meditation etc

The second one I forgot 🙂 :), will update when i am able to  recall it or see from the notepad where i have noted it. 🙂

Would you like to guess it ?

Update 1 (29-09-2016)

Today morning i saw in the notepad the third word and it is Correction 🙂

I would like to write a few line on this. It was the most crucial word and i had to forget this one only !! 🙂 🙂

Correction refers to the process of identifying our own defects/shortcomings and taking action to correct them. The thing is most of us are busy looking for flaws in others and do not have time or will to look inwards and introspect on our own nature.

Sometimes we get so obsessed in fault finding in a person (say A) that when that person is appreciated by some other person (say B) we feel upset and focus on convincing B that A is not worthy of the understanding or respect that you are giving. We do so because our ego does not accepts the fact that someone else can see the qualities in a person we never cared to appreciate and how can I be wrong and someone else be correct about this person !! 🙂 ;whereas the proper corrective action would have been to assess things calmly and introspect and then see if our views or actions need modification.

Strange are the ways in which our ego works.

Some Thoughts

Started visiting Brahmakumaaris again today. There was gap of many days due to several reasons including disillusionment with all that they tell there. The only difference this time is that have started going there without a notepad as it appears all that they tell is already known to me !!! In any case i never reread anything wrote earlier so it appeared waste of ink and paper 🙂

Sometimes merely doing something is therapeutic and this visit is one of those acts. Doing just for the sake of doing just as writing here just for the sake of writing!!.

Doing mundane things never excited me. Even in professional life i dislike mundane, day to day mechanical activity as i feel it could be done by anyone!!. I remember few years back when i submitted my annual self assessment to my senior, he remarked that he wished to give me much  better grading but for the fact that i wrote much less than i did and offered to give paper back to me for spicing it up but i still declined to change or add to whatever i wrote….call it laziness or plain lack of ambition !!

Of late i believe mundane things , the daily day to day boring activities too have their own charm…they keep people involved and busy in one way or the other so they dont think too much about other things of life and may be dont even need to visit Brahmakumaaris !! :))

 

Enough of this mundane writing as of now 🙂 !!
