Think positive and think different

The mantra to acquire spiritual health is to think positive and differently. When you think positive, it creates positive hormones and takes you from sympathetic mode to parasympathetic mode. When you think different, it gives you opportunities and from multiple options available, you can ask your heart to choose one of them.

Thinking positive was a message given by Lord Buddha and thinking different by Adi Shankaracharya.

The candle light march which was done for fighting justice in Jessica Lal murder case has been picked up by most of the protest campaigns because it was positive and different.

I have seen three examples in my life where I used this and prolonged the life of those persons. My grandfather-in-law at the age of 85 thought it is time to go but when we made him work positively and differently, he die at the age of 100 years. He was asked to teach youngsters law, write to Prime Minister every day on certain issues and find matrimonial matches for the youngest persons in the family.

In other two cases, one was suffering from terminal prostate cancer and the other terminal brain cancer. The first one lived for ten years and the other is still alive.

Both were told that they had a very early cancer and that was cured by a surgery.

When you think different, it creates creativity and when it is with positive attitude, it is accepted by all

How to Be Happy and Healthy

A disciple once asked Lord Buddha, “After meditating for years, I have not been able to gain anything.” Then Lord Buddha asked, “Did you lose anything?” The disciple said, “Yes, I lost my anger, desires, expectations and ego.” Buddha smiled and said, “That is your gain by meditating.”

To be happy, one must learn to let go the following:

 

  1. One should let go of desires. In Amarnath Yatra, Lord Shiva firstly let go of the Bull, which represents the sexual desires. In Hanuman’s Lanka yatra, desires are represented by Samhiki, a creature who used to catch birds by their shadows. Hanuman killed the desires. So, it is possible to kill your desires. Again in Ramayana, desires are linked to Rajsik mind and in mythology, Meghnath represents the Rajsik mind. Meghnath was killed by Lakshman, the determined mind. Therefore, one should let go of the desires by killing them by focused concentration of the mind on the desires.
  2. Let go of expectations. In Amarnath Yatra, the second thing which Lord Shiva discarded was the moon, which in mythology symbolizes letting go of expectations.
  3. Let go of your ego. In mythology, ego represents Kansa in Krishna era and Ravana in the era of Rama. Both were killed by Krishna and Rama respectively, who symbolize the consciousness. Ego can never be killed by the mind and can only be killed by the consciousness (conscious-based decisions). Ego is also represented by Sheshnag and both Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu have a Sheshnag each with mouth directed downwards indicating the importance of controlling one’s ego. One should let go of his or her ego but also remember never to hurt somebody’s ego. Hurting somebody’s ego in terms of allegations of sexual misconduct, financial corruption or abusing one’s caste is never forgotten and carries serious implications. In Hanuman’s Lanka Yatra, ego is represented by Sursa; Hanuman managed her by humility and not by counter ego. On Nag Panchami, we worship Nag, the ego, by folded hands and by offering milk.
  4. Let go of your inaction. One should learn to live in the present. In Hanuman’s Lanka Yatra, Hanuman first meets Menak Mountain, which indicates destination to rest. One should never do that and willfully divert his or her mind towards action.
  5. Let go of your attachments. Let go of your attachments to your close relatives and the worldly desires. In Amarnath Yatra, Lord Shiva first leaves Bull (desires), moon (expectations), sheshnag (ego) and then he gives up Ganesha and worldly desires (five elements). In mythology, this is practiced as detached attachment and in Bhagavad Gita is equated to Lotus. In Islam, detached attachment is practiced in the form of Bakra Eid.
  6. Let go of your habit of criticizing, complaining and condemning people. One should always practice non-violent communication and speak which is truth, necessary and kind. One should not criticize, condemn or complain about people, situation and events. Wayne Dyer said, “The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you do not know anything about.”
  7. Most of us often condemn people without knowing their capabilities and label them as unmatchable to us. One should also let go of the habit of gossiping as it is a form of violent communication.
  8. Let go of your habit of blaming others: One should learn to take the responsibilities and people believe in team work. Good leader is the one who learns to be responsible in life.
  9. Let go of your need to be always right: It is a form of ego. Remember, in arguments either you can win arguments or relationships. Always try to win relationship and not arguments.
  10. Let go of your need to control situations, events and people: Learn to accept people as they are. The world is won by those who let this habit go.
  11. Let go of your habit and the need to impress others: This is also a type of ego where we always seek appreciation.
  12. Give up your belief that you cannot do it: Remember ‘IMPOSSIBLE’ is ‘I M POSSIBLE’. A belief is not an idea held by the mind but it is an idea that holds the mind. (Elli Roselle).
  13. Give up your resistance to change: Remember change is the only constant which will happen and always welcome it. Joseph Campbell once said that one should follow one’s bliss and will open doors to your where there are only walls.
  14. Let go of your fear and all negative thoughts: Remember, the mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. It becomes very destructive if used badly. (Eckhart Tolle).
  15. Let go of your habit of giving excuses.
  16. Let go of always being in the past.

Lord Ram taught us to fight for personal rights. When his wife was abducted by Ravana, he fought to bring his wife back.

Lord Krishna, on the other hand, fought first part of life during childhood for personal and family rights and killed Kansa but in his later part of life, fought for others.  In Mahabharata, he helped Yudhishthir and his brothers to get back the kingdom and take revenge of their wife’s ( Draupadi) insult.

 Lord Buddha, on the other hand, worked for the welfare of the society.

Lord Ram had a personal enemy. Lord Krishna had personal enemy only in the first part of his life, in the later part,Krishnahad no enemy. Lord Buddha had no enemy altogether.

Out of ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu, Ram is 7th, Krishna is 8th and Buddha is 9th.

The evaluation of Avtar means that your life starts with your personal achievements and then you start working for others and then for the society.

 First you learn to take care of your needs, followed by that of others and finally of the society.

 Ramayana and Mahabharata, Rama killing Ravana indicate killing the ego of the self;Krishnahelping killing Duryodhana means helping killing the ego of others and Buddha means creating a egoless society.
