Perception

Last nite I was having dinner with my friend, who broke up with her LOOOONG time BF. They were together for 14 years till early this year when they broke up. So we were talking about that, she was telling me her side of the story that how painful it was and is. Her emotions toward that guy is still there and she still has a soft corner for that guy. Though after their break-up she got new BF but that affair didn't last long and that guy moved to another city. She said she got engaged with this new guy thinking that engaging herself with this new guy might help her in overcoming the sufferings from the previous relationship but things didn't work out the way how she wanted.

This leads me to think about "Perception" and how it effect things in the Real World.

Few days back, i was watching a movie named - Doctor Strange. In that movie there was 1 sequence where this young muscular fellow try to pull few big stones and was not able to and then 1 old guy just pull them very easily.

Young guy - How did you manage to do that?
Old guy - Things appear how you perceive them to be, you perceived them to be very heavy that's the reason they are heavy and you are not able to pull them. I perceive them to be very light so am able to pull them easily.

Many a times we say that you need to have strong "Will Power" to achieve something, basically what we are doing is setting our "Perception" that whatever we are want to achieve or whatever goals we have set are not difficult and we are capable enough to do that. Once our perception is set then every thing seems to be very smooth and easy and we accomplish what we want.

Child at heart

Last night i was surfing the web and came across a blog wherein there was a pic of balloons and below that it was written "This is how i keep my inner child alive".

I was thinking if only by balloons we can keep our child alive, what else can be the best and easiest thing. Coz for me, i have to keep my inner child alive everyday whether or not there are balloons or candy's. I have to keep talking to myself just like a child, and make myself understand how the children make them understand. I have to cleanse my inner self everyday after going to home from work.

Though there are various methods to cleanse your inner self, it depends on you which one you wanna take. How i cleanse myself is either by doing catharsis or by gibberish. People who dont know Gibberish - "It is talking LOUD with anything that comes to your mind, anything that does not make any SENSE".

At times we dont realize that we are polluting our inner self so much that when we start cleansing, there is soo much burden of ALL our wrong doings (YES, wrong doings). Maybe we dont accept that we do anything wrong but deep down in our consciousness we know that we do wrong things.

I dont say we should stop doing, coz at times whether or not you like, you have to do. Sometimes things are inadvert, sometimes we have to be politically correct, things not in your hands and which you cant avoid, so the best thing to do is - cleanse yourselves everyday.

Best thing we can do is, keep our Inner Child Alive and see how beautiful the world is and Spread the Joy and Happiness just like a child.
