Triumph OF LIFE - SELF-DISCIPLINE YOUR LIFE

Triumph OF LIFE -
SELF-DISCIPLINE YOUR LIFE


(Get Detached and Attached in the ratio Required you to Grow)



vWhen you’re centered in the heart of the Target of Life, you’re at your best and life seems brighter.
vYou see clearly and therefore make optimal decisions.
vYou feel peaceful, loving, energetic, and happy.
vYou’re in a good position to handle just about anything.
vHowever, when things happen that go against our desires and expectations, it’s easy to get pulled off center.



vWe experience more fear and negativity.
vWe say and do things we regret.
vThe immune system weakens and our productivity declines.
vWe lose touch with what’s really important to us.
vUnhealthy stress increases and our sensitivity toward others decreases.
vAnd the further away from the center we move, the worse it gets!



vThat’s why it’s so important to catch early signs of stress, and to use all of our creativity to stay as centered as possible.
vWhen we are centered in the heart of the Target of Life, difficulties still crop up, but we can handle them much more smoothly and effectively.
vThe more centered we are, the greater our well-being, the wiser our choices, and the more effective we are in everything we do.





To remain silent rather than strike out or spread negative gossip;
to follow through on your exercise and dietary goals; to stop
rushing and overworking;
to devote yourself wholeheartedly to a process of spiritual enrichment;
to put aside distractions and listen with complete respect, openness, and attention to a loved one or co-worker—
such are the freedoms and pleasures afforded by
self-discipline.




We’re all in school; life is one great big course in self-discipline.
In everything you think, say, and do, you are either strengthening or weakening your self-management skills.


The skills of self-discipline are like muscles: If you exercise them intelligently, your self-management ability will grow steadily in strength and flexibility, always ready to serve your highest good and
that of all others.



Building our muscles of self-control does demand effort and patience;
but far from being happiness-killing drudgery, self-discipline is the doorway to true freedom, strength, creativity, service, love, and joy.


Self-discipline involves
three key components:
calmness, intuition, and willpower—
the calmness required to hear our intuitive guidance and the strength of will necessary to follow through.


Fortunately, life abounds with creative opportunities, both large and small, that allow us to practice and improve our
self-management abilities.

Be playful and courageous in building your muscles of self-discipline.
Greet life’s little difficulties as a
game in which you enjoy testing
your self-discipline.
Take pleasure in skillfully meeting challenges and learning from them.

DO IT NOW!
As soon as you realize it’s time to get up, to be quiet, or to begin that project, do it! Don’t delay.
It’s when you postpone action and allow your mind to start rationalizing that your will is weakened
and trouble sets in.


CHALLENGE YOURSELF!
Walk an extra mile. Sit next to
that person who in the past has threatened you or “gotten on your nerves.” Use everyday situations to boost your skills of self-discipline.


CELEBRATE YOUR STRENGTHS!
Write down some of the many ways in which you already are self-disciplined. Then make a list of all your positive qualities, your special talents, and compliments that people have paid you. A good friend can help you identify your strong points.


FIND A COACH!
Invite someone you respect to be your personal coach—a person who will listen to the desires of your heart, assist you in setting tangible goals, challenge you to overcome your weaknesses, and provide encouragement and guidance to
keep you on course.



KEEP YOUR WORD!
If you say you are going to do something, do it. Occasionally things will come up, and you won’t be able to follow through. But as a rule, if you say, for example, you will be there at 8:00, be there. If you think you might be late, just honestly say, “It may be well past 8:00 before I show up.”

CREATE YOUR
OWN MENTAL MOVIES!
If there’s something you want, mentally see it repeatedly in vivid color, right in front of you. If there’s a habit you want to get rid of, visualize it in a shabby gray color and see it quickly moving away from you, getting smaller and smaller
until it disappears completely.

NOURISH YOURSELF
WITH POSITIVE SELF-TALK!
Say goodbye to words such as “can’t,” “impossible,” and “if only.” You CAN accomplish almost anything if you believe you can. Say to yourself with joyous, deep conviction:
“Today is the best day of my life!”


PUT OTHERS FIRST!
Without neglecting yourself, look for opportunities to put others first. Give the best to another; take the smallest piece; let the driver behind you have the most convenient parking place. This is an excellent way to bless others while building your muscles of self-discipline.



RISE ABOVE LIKES AND DISLIKES!

Don’t enslave yourself with a rigid set of likes and dislikes. Learn to accept—even to like—things you previously found distasteful. Avoid judging others for a day; simply love them as they are.
No matter what, try to remain
even-minded, resourceful, and happy.



LEARN FROM OUTSTANDING EXAMPLES OF SELF-DISCIPLINE!
Listen to and watch disciplined people whom you admire. Seek out new heroes—great leaders, visionaries, teachers, saints, and mature athletes. Zero in on their secrets of success
and make them your own.



Sharing the noble ambitions
of others, my heart says,
“I believe in you! Your goals are my goals. You have the talents and self-discipline to succeed, and I will gladly encourage and assist you.”

Remember, the more centered you are on the Target of Life, the more accepting and loving you will be, and the easier it will be for you to be calm, sense your inner guidance, and
use your willpower to take action.

PERSONALITY PAIN

PERSONALITY PAIN
The ache / pain inside / self need to be cured through the spirituality prescription.

If one needs to be really a human being, he need to grow. The growth need to be in physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. The time the all round development does not happen he deemed to be dull.

The grief is to be released through cry. The person gets relief after a good cry. But this should not be a habit. How many can afford crying? It is a gift to have the habit of crying.

A curative comfort can be obtained from the faith in God, Guru, etc. or Enjoying Nature, a bath, nice view, good music, discussing with some close friend.

Knowledge (jnanam) is one of self and of the environment. The analysis of the knowledge and taking all its benefit for the life to be beautiful is the ability of a human being. This knowledge should be used in the proper way. May be not having this knowledge is better than using the knowledge in the improper way.

Be a human being. Being human is the way to be a human being.

Serve others and keep them happy for you to be happy. Serving God means serving and making others happy.

For the help you have rendered never ask any return help. It is as you are expecting the other person into trouble.

mayyEva-jiirNathaam yaanthu

Helping with expecting a return also will give pain as they may not respond the way one expects.

In the higher frequency everything will look transparent. The example of the fan is enough to understand this.

onam-vishu-rahukaalam-etc..

1) Superstition as a status of mind. The material / object / things around us / idea / thoght is the impression of anything in the mind. The understanding of the things by an individual depends on what he has learned so far and so on. Based on this some people do not believe in some things as they compare with what they believe. Then those which are not matching with their state of mind at that time they consider as superstition.

2) Dharma is the merit of activity of an individual. This is relative. Generally accepted actions that are acceptable to the society is marked as dharmic. In this context any individual have two actions one - for self, and the other - for society. The dharma of an individual to satisfy him and the people around him and the societ that supports him are important and they are classically parted as ishta and poortha.
3) Religion
I follow the definition of Vivekananda et. al. The way of life, a culture, a social binding, a class that defines the rituals for the better life. It is a culture and not be named and classified. It varies and evolves.
4) Prayer is the best way to control breath, get into meditation, lighten the feelings, sooth the pain etc. The different diety and the variety of prayers are for the choice of the individual. Practicing will have a psycho-neuro effect. It unites the feelings of the participants. The sathsang will have a unique thought process when thay are into it.
5) Guru The classic definition is the person who takes us to light. There could be many taking to more bright spots. In todays world, the short interaction and paid membership makes one to follow a 'guru'. But the guru is one who understand the constitution of the sishyan and the sishyan understand the guru. For someone it does not require long time, a click may do. May not be seen too. But they see eachother through the divya drushti. Yes, it do happen.
6) ASHTAMANGALAM
Common items are mirror (kannadi), lamp (deepam), dress (vasthram), clean rice (akshatham)
The other optional include
filled vessal (nirakutam)
gold (swarnam)
lady (sthree)
Cow (pashu)
or
ghee (naye)
book (grandham)
Sindoor (kumkumam)
or
Fruits (pasham)
or
beetal leaf (vettila)
pan (adayka)
wooden vessal (mara-pathram)
All of them are nice to see and makes us happy too.
7) Onam:

Onam is to remumber the great devotee of Lord Vishnu (the Emperor Maha Bali who was the grandson of Prahlada - the great devotee of Lord Narasimha). Mahabali received benediction and liberation with the blessings of the Lord, who had assumed the form of Vamanadeva, the dwarf incarnation.

Onam is celebrated in August-September in Kerala. Onam is a ten-day festival marked by women and kids creating beautiful floral patterns in front of their houses, pujas for Lord Vishnu, feasting and boat races.

Basically Mahabali is an asura and the ruler being asuras, the keraliates must be closer to asura guna, despite being the devotee of vishnu. The people who settle abroad and have a desire to go abroad are asuras (mayans are those who are in America too). Once your birth land is left and the brahmana swabhava is lost. That is the reason why brahmanas were not allowed to cross the sea traditionally. I do not know hoe the ‘vasudaiva kudumbakam’ ; ‘lokaa samastha….’ etc. get along with this vision.

A contradiction in the story is that the mahabali is in the vamana avathara time. The fact that parasurama came after vamana; mahabali must not have ruled kerala. If the vamana story is to be believed the ‘parasurama created the kerala’ cannot be true. Probably mahabalipuram must be the maveli’s kingdome and is in tamilnadu. Hope Maveli knows that kerala is looking forward for him and not the mahabalipuravasikal.

Do not worry about these and try to festive the coming ONAM. New cloths, good sadhya, happy get-togethers etc. - A cheerful life that is what Lord Krishna want us to lead. Geetha also says ‘MA SUCHA (means - do not be sad).

8) Ugadi and Vishu:

Vishu is celebrated in a big way in Kerala. Families wake up in the morning and make sure they feast their eyes on good things like a picture of God, grains, flowers, fruit and gold. It is believed seeing these first thing in the morning of the New Year will bring them prosperity and wealth throughout the year.

These are two festivals that celebrate the New Year in different communities of south India. Ugadi is celebrated in March-April. Vishu is celebrated in mid-April. The word Yugadi means the day of the inauguration of the Yuga or Age. The Year is computed and the starting of the year is considered as vishu. The best things are to be seen on this day as KANI, so that the coming days will have similar sight.

The Vishu / Ugadi must be the same day as the computations/concepts are the same. This year there was a difference of 4 days. The yuga for us and other south Indians cannot be different. There is an error on the computation and that need to be corrected.

Do not worry about the kaala (time/year) computations enjoy seeing good things on VISHU and there after too. All that are prescribed in the ashtamangalyam are good to see. The must are the new cloth, money, gold, book, close relatives like mother, sister et. al., fruits, vegetables, grains (navadhanyam).

9) RAHUKALAM

Many do believe in rahukalam and such kalas!!

Considering the uniform sunrise time as 6:00a.m.and sunset as 6:00 p.m rahukalam is given as .
Monday 7:30 to 9:00
Tuesday 15:00 to 16:30
Wednesday 12:00 to 13:30
Thursday 13:30 to 15:00
Friday 10:30 to 12:00
Saturday 9:00 to 10:30
Sunday 16:30 to 18:00

The Rahu Kalam will be of an hour and a half duration for every day. Rahukalam is always in the day time only.

“Eleven bays had a good football club”. By heart this and see that seven words are from Monday to Sunday.

Eleven is for Monday.
Count for E from the first alphabet ‘a’; you will get 5
Take one and half times and get 7:30
Thus rahu on Monday is from 7:30 to 9 am

Club is for Sunday.
Count for C from the first alphabet ‘a’; you will get 3
Take one and half times and get 4:30
Thus rahu on Sunday is from 4:30 to 6
MOTHER SAW FATHER WEARING THE TURBAN ON SUNDAY - where Mother is for Monday 7.30 - 9.00 Saw is for Saturday 9.00 - 10.30 Father is for Friday 10.30- 12.00 Wearingis for Wednedsay 12.00- 01.30 The is for Thursday 01.30- 03.00 Turban is for Tuesday 03.00- 04.30 and Sunday as it is 04.30- 06.00


Rahu kalam varies from place to place, changing every day. This is based on sunrise and sunset. The rahu kalam available on your calendar and panchangam is based on the assumption that sunrise is at 6 am and sunset is at 6 pm. One must see the sunset time sunrise changing every day. This variation can change rahukalam more than one-hour in some days.

Get rahukalam timing at your place by adding or subtracting the sunrise time from 6 and buffering the same on rahukalam. For example if the sunrise is at 6:23 and the day is Monday, the Rahukalam on the day will be 7:53 to 9:23 (not 7 to 9).

The above note is only if this makes some meaning and for those who are following and do not correct the timings. I know many following this blind!

I do not have any reason for to believe RAHUKALAM or any other kalam!!

How and why does these time? As per bharatheeya knowledge I do not see the relevance of the day (week) itself. The seven-day concept is not very relevant in any of the computations. These are only for convenience. There can be many more related questions to this – how can be Friday, Monday etc. are found good for one each god? This too is a question!!
