Ignore the Meaningless Noise

Last night while discussing day’s happenings with husband, a thought came to mind. There are so many noises around us but we react to only those that concern to us directly.

positive-wordsFor example, when we walk on road or are in any marketplace, we get to hear so many sounds. Like, horns of vehicles, conversations among people and endless buzz, but do we respond to all those? Certainly not!

We respond to only those voices that “we think” can affect us. So, why do we react to all the unpleasant and useless talks of people around us? Instead, why not consider these gossips or unproductive talks that bog us down as just a noise worth ignoring.

Why to waste premium space of our mind by storing unpleasant thoughts! Yes, our brain is no less than a high-end, prestigious neighborhood where trash-like things have no place. That’s why we must make a conscious effort to keep our mind free of garbage thoughts. Otherwise, it is no better than demeaning our exceptional mind space by allowing rubbish thoughts to live inside.

This is the way I try to keep myself unaffected and focused on my work and goal. I stay away from superficial talks. I consider all negative and meaningless talks as just a noise. I pretend I’m “listening”, but in reality I just “hear” those conversations.

I let my ears do their job, but keep the doors of my mind totally shut, as I cannot let its precious space to be occupied by rubbish.  When I am not absorbing what I’m hearing, then obviously I won’t react to the conversation.

Focus your energy in creative and constructive work without consuming yourself in aimless gossips. It’s better to be alone doing things you enjoy than sitting in conversation you find meaningless.

That’s why I occupy myself in Zentangles or intricate Madhubani paintings whenever I am free. Playing with my creativity gives me peace and I am able focus on my goals.

So, watch yourself and be careful of what you are letting your mind to absorb. Shut the doors of your brain when people around you question your conviction. For me, dreams are like projects. Just like, completion of any project depends on how well it is executed, fulfilling of dreams depend on how much effort you put in to bring it to reality.

Therefore, as the project leader of your dreams, it is up to you whether you are distracted by external noises or remain passionately focused on completing your project – your dream. Take responsibility of your dreams and actions, and don’t let disturbing talks affect you.

Stopping Planning Life – Live The Moment

We are in such a habit of planning our life, that we forget that there is no surety that we would even wake up the next morning or not. Still we are always so busy planning life ahead!

By saying “stop planning your life”, I am not advocating being unorganized or living a reckless life. All I’m saying is, we shouldn’t spoil our present by getting too obsessed with our future.

Things happen as they are supposed to happen. Or should I say Anything can happen at anytime in our life?

Usually, disappointment and negativity creeps in our mind if wishes get delayed to become reality. However, we simply forget that wishes do become true – it’s a fact. It’s just the matter of “when”. It can happen anytime – now, tomorrow or anytime later.

Actually, most of us are aware of this. But, because of being caught-up in too much of future and imaginary thoughts, we simply overlook this fact of life.

Everything is already planned by God. My personal belief is that nothing at planning level is in our hands. All we have in our hands is our karma and we should do that sincerely.

If we are kind and good to others, good things follow us. It’s just about having faith! Let Him unfold his plans for you at the right time. In the meanwhile, love your loved ones and be affectionate towards others. Do things that give you inner peace – be it spending time in gardening or reading a good book.

What you have in your hand is your present, so live it the way you want. If you are smiling in present you will definitely keep smiling in future. If you cringe about future in present, there are hard chances you will find joy ahead!

These are just my thoughts. Do you agree with me that we should live in present?
