In this big world in order to survive we need to struggle a lot, we need to work hard, need to be updated, or else we will succumb to the lap of lethargy. When nobody is there to bother about us, nobody is there to guide us, its time to whip yourself up…………..that means charge up yourself, and take charge of your own life , make yourself updated, well informed, and train yourself for the occupation you are going to pursue. Be hard to yourself, yeah its OK to relax sometimes but always put an imaginary deadline for yourself and work according to that. Eat in the right time, exercise regularly, read a lot of books, cultivate one hobby, grow your interest in various things, there are so many things to learn and know in this huge universe………have you ever wanted to know from the people those who do skydiving…..how do they feel while doing so? How amazing and adventurous they are!!! Some of us work in scheduled hours, some of us has free lancing work, but maintaining a routine is very important for all of us. Be your own friend, you can be your own guide, and always remember those red rods[impression of the whips charged on your back by yourself] when you feel enough has been done by me.Nothing is enough, its always miles to go before a sleep. Good Day.
We prefer to walk on the road which is tried and tested and its less troublesome………how many of us have tried a road less traveled ? How many of us seriously follow our gut feelings ? Almost all of us have some inner voice [gut feeling] in certain circumstances but we generally ignore those weird signals of our sixth sense thinking that it could be embarrassing for us, nobody will accept our choices, we will be ridiculed etc, but that is the way made exclusively for us to follow in order to achieve maximum success , we never know where our gut feeling can take us to……..it can be a totally stranger’s path, it may not appear rosy at first glance, may not seem promising but still somebody inside is pushing us towards it…….. at that time we should follow our inner voice. There is a famous say that the most risky way to live life is not taking any risk at all………….very true, may be the tried and tested path is not made for all of us, some people are born to make it great, only thing we need to understand the path the signal of our inner voice, it will definitely guide us where we are destined to be.
Many a times in our life we feel stagnant, depressed, inactive, our mind succumb into boredom, it seems as if we have reached the dead end of life…………..no hope no light………….many a times it happens with us, it can be sorrows more than expected, it can be super satisfied life with all kinds of luxuries which give us mere boredom………..or may be none of them, even after living a normal life sometimes we feel its tiring, not at all productive and we cannot depend on friends always they may give useful advice but those may not be applicable for us….. at that time we need some self motivation………to motivate ourselves we need to know about ourselves thoroughly, what are the strengths and weaknesses we have, and how can we enhance our strength and overcome our weaknesses…. we can cultivate any hobby, it can be gardening, playing a guitar, reading those books by our favorite authors, nature painting, if not anything then we need to talk to ourselves, we have to ask ourselves how to get rid of these boredom, how do overcome depression, how to make ourselves happy.We have to concentrate on our passion, whats the first thing we always wanted to do, to help somebody, to make a philanthropic move, suddenly we can visit an old age home as a surprise visitor and talk to our older guardian, in order to make them happy we may feel we are recharged for our next move, many of us have the passion for building a stout physique they regularly go to gym, talk to gym instructor about different kind of protein diet, gym lessons etc, seeing them others also feel energized. Sometimes we can go back to our school , meet our school teachers, talk about our old golden school days, a dream of having a rock band can motivate us to bring our like minded friends together and start working on it. Dream big, motivate yourself, write down what you want to be, the moment you know whats your aim in life, you will definitely start finding ways to work on it. Tell everyday to yourself “I am connected with Universe” Universe will definitely guide you to betterment. If you have any question any doubt you ask your mind, our subconscious mind is too intelligent , it knows what is right and what is wrong for us, even if in conscious mind we cannot judge a person or situation our subconscious can do that. It can motivate you when you want it. Listen to your mind, its extremely important. It will guide you always. Be your own mentor, be your own guide. Be self motivated.
What does a potter do? they mix water with earth and make it a semi solid form to give shapes of various kinds. The human soul too needs dilution of egos, pride, self righteousness to be a good learner…………………a good teacher can understand how to make his/her students like a soil mixed up with water in equal proportion in order to shape their talents.All students are equal to the teacher. They only differ by their ability to grasp, their intelligence, their concentration to read and write and most importantly the power of listening. How much a student can remember by listening the lecture of their teachers can differ him or her from other students. In Ancient India Veda was only remembered in memory and it was chanted by the gurus to their disciples thus it was carried forward several hundred years only by power of listening , power of memory. It was never in written form initially.
After giving shapes to the earthenware the potter put them in the raw conditions in the open sunlight so that they can be strengthened furthermore and can serve the purpose for which they are molded. All human being irrespective of any background, cast, nation, religion have come to serve their purpose in this world. Only a good guru can identify and mold his/ her students to proper shape so that they can serve the purpose for which they are born. Continue reading “making good students is a kind of pottery”
