Meaning of Independence

We are fortunate to be Independent and enjoy our freedom. But there were lots of sacrifieces and efforts made to acheive our freedom from British empire. Britishers ruled us for almost 190 years and we can not understand what our ancestors had suffered during that period for Independence.

This is really sad that even after 70 years of Independence we are unable to enjoy our freedom and still living a miserable life.

There are still people in our country who strives for Basic Needs like Food, Shelter, Basic Health Care and education.

There are certain political influencer who still want to dominate this poor class and want to carry the same policy which was followed by Britishers “Divide and Rule”. They Divide us on Caste, Religion and other issues and takes the advantage out of it. There are states which is far behind in terms of providing Basic services to the common people.

There is also a huge disparity of income level in our country which divides people.

Freedom means living life without worries. There are other elements which we can workout ourselves to feel the freedom in a deeper sense.

EGO:

One of the worst hinderance in realisation of freedom is Ego. When we try to impress Others that is Ego. In Ego either we suppress our feeling or overpower our feelings. Thus Ego forces us to act as per the situation and by doing so we lose our freedom.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar on Ego

Ravi ShankarThe tendency of the ego is to say “I am not crazy, I am proper. Ego is the biggest problem. Yet it is very easy to overcome. It is a one-day job. Just act like a crazy person. Can you do that? For one day. Done! Make people believe you have gone completely crazy. It is the best antidote for ego.” If you cannot do this, can you simply behave as a child for the rest of your life? No third option. Be a baby for the rest of your life or a crazy person. Be one who has attained the essence. Apart from this, keep the ego. Don’t try to get rid of it. Do this slowly. Otherwise it is impossible.

When people laugh at you, can you relax? When people point at you, just relax. Smile and accept it. A mother has no ego. Whatever the children say, she accepts. If they kick , does the mother get perturbed? If you are unperturbed, you have conquered the ego. Ego is just a feeling of having a wall between you and others. There is no wall. You belong to me and I belong to you. You are accepted the way you are.

Naturalness is the antidote for you. Be spontaneous! Ego cannot stand spontaneity. Ego wants to present everything properly and prepare beforehand. Children are so spontaneous. They make mistakes. Never mind making mistakes. Just be like a child. Anybody can say anything about you.

Jealousy:

We often get jealous about what others have and by doing so we lose our freedom. Instead of enjoyign for what we have we feel restless about what others have and we don’t. In this universe nothing is perfect and there is no end for the wants. Instead of getting jealous about what others have we should cheer about what we have and live life to the full spirit and enjoy our freedom.

One of the best way to conquer jealousy is sharing what you have with others. By doing so we feel more powerful and can overcome from jealousy.

Lust:

Lust and Desires are never ending they only gives us suffering, tensions and frustration. and never allows us to be free and binds us towards objects. If someone’s lust is interrupted, they become angry and start hating. By love we can overcome lust.

Lust brings tension; Love brings relaxation.

In lust we want to grasp and possess; in love we want to give and surrender.

Lust Says, “All I want you to have is what I want”. Love Says, “I want you to have what you want”

Lust causes feverishness and frustration; love causes longing and pain.

ANGER:

Anger is another element which effects our freedom. Normally we offer anger freely and smile rerely. Anger comes out of ignorance and negativity in Anger we not only disturb others but also our own peace. Any decision taken in Anger can not be fruitful because in Anger we lose control on our thought. By Knowledge and regular meditation we can overcome anger and lead a healthy life.

So, the bover montion four elements are among the elements which causes hinderances to our freedom. This independence day, let’s all leave Anger, Lust, Jealousy and Ego and Celebrate freedom from Inside.

 

 

Moving From Unfulfilled Desires to Fulfilled Desires

naughty kid

A CHILD KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT MAKES THEM HAPPY AND DOES EVERYTHING TO ACHIEVE THAT.

But as we grow our desires increases and we feel it tougher to get what we desire and we become restless because of those unfulfilled desires.

 

So, what could be the possible reasons for those unfulfilled desires?

 

There are various reasons for those unfulfilled desires and following could be the possible reasons.

 

  1. When we were kids, we had parents, relatives, neighbors, siblings, friends, teachers to help in fulfilling our desires. When we were kids those desires were important and tougher to us and we used to become restless for those desires but for them these were very small things and they were always there to fulfill our desires.

 

But as we grow our desires increases and so our parents, relatives, neighbors, siblings, friends, teachers also feel uncomfortable to fulfill those desires and then our desires becomes unfulfilled desires and we become restless.

 

  1. When we were child we had no knowledge to rationalize between the importance of desires but with growing age we can and we should rationalize our desires.

 

Often we forget to think whether that desire is actually important to us. Most of the time we try to fulfill those desires which are not of any use and we invest a lot of time and energy towards their attainment.

 

So next time whenever you feel restless because of an unfulfilled desire please check again whether it is important to spend time and energy on those desires.

 

THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE IN LIFE IS TO BE HAPPY.

Fulfilled desires

No one can know you better than yourself and you know what makes you Happy.

 

Every Situation is life teaches us a lesson. Till we grow up we face various situation in life and each situation teaches us something for our future.

 

Desires are never ending and this is not possible for anyone to fulfill all desires so a better way to lead a happy life is to have a clear Objective in life and a Set of Goals to achieve the Objective.

 

To make it more practical, we can define two different objectives one for the life and second for the career and set small and long term Goals for those objectives.

 

How to define our objective for life?

Objective in Life

Defining objective in life is very important to lead a happy life. Objective gives us a sense of direction it also keeps us focused and helps us enjoy every moment.

 

Objective for life should be considered as the most important objective they should be framed wisely and efforts should be made for not to sacrifice that.

 

To achieve the objective for life we also need to define our (Personal and Social) Long term and Short term Goals. With clearly defined goals and strategy we can easily achieve our objective.

(Please contact us at sharthak@object4life.in, to have better understanding about the Objective in life)

 

How to define Career Objective for our Desires?

career

Career can be defined as an Individual’s Journey or progress through life with learning and work.

 

We need financial freedom to fulfill various desires in life which is possible only if we have a better work environment where our productivity increases to its best extent. A better career not only gives us financial freedom but a better society to shape our overall objective in life.

 

This could be a wise Idea to make your hobby as your career. This way we can enjoy the work what we do and can put our 100% to get best out of the Job.

 

Most of the time we have seen there are people who landed up in a career, which is not of their interest and they keep changing their jobs in search of satisfaction and often seen frustrated.

 

And there also exist those people who do the job as their hobby and enjoy work and life to the fullest.

 

So this is important to select your career objective in tune with your life Objective.

 

Trust me, once you have defined your Objectives and set your Goals, life will become fun, free of worries and full of success.

 

So being discussed so much about the Importance of life what is the right way to define Objectives and set appropriate Goals?

 

Don’t forget to read our next article on defining Objective in Life and setting Goals towards their attainment …

Importance of having Objective in life

How to get what you want in life?

 

Scenario – 1

ChildIf, we ask our parents (Most Trusted People) to give something then what will they give? Even if they manage to give something, whether that can make us happy?

If a child ask his parents to give Rs. 10/- to buy a chocolate then of course they will give and that child will be very happy.

Scenario – 2

child-shopIf, we go to a shop and ask the shopkeeper to give something then what will they give? If at all the shopkeeper gives something at a cost will that be acceptable?

If a child ask a shopkeeper to give chocolate for Rs. 10/- then of course he will give and that child will be satisfied.

From the above two scenarios, it is clear that we should know what we want then only we can get what we are looking for or otherwise we need to be very lucky to get what may make us comfortable.

In our real life we pass through the same situations. Because of not having Objective in life our all the efforts and hard work goes in vein and we curse our luck.

In this article I am going to focus on Importance of having Objective in life.

I Hope, All of us must remember those short stories, which was told in the classrooms. Those short stories were not just told to enhance our grammar and language but also to enhance our understanding about the life. I am going to share couple of examples which I am sure can help you in understanding the importance of having objective in life.

 

Dhirubhai Ambani

Dhirajlal Hirachand “Dhirubhai” Ambani

Late Dhirubhai Ambani was born in the year 1932, at Chorwad, Gujarat. His father was a school teacher. He started his entrepreneurial career by selling bhajias to pilgrims in Mount Girnar over the weekends. He moved to Aden, Yemen after completing his matriculation at the age of 16. He worked there as a gas-station attendant, and as a clerk in an oil company. He returned to India in 1958 with Rs 50,000 and set up a textile trading company.

He started his first textile mill at Naroda, near Ahmedabad in 1966 and started the brand ‘Vimal’. He built India’s largest private sector company, Reliance India Limited, from a scratch. Over time he diversified his business into a core specialization in petrochemicals with additional interests in telecommunications, information technology, energy, power, retail, textiles, infrastructure services, capital markets, and logistics.

Due to his innovative Ideas Reliance quickly became a favorite of the stock market in the 1980s. In 1992, Reliance became the first Indian company to raise money in global markets. Reliance also became the first Indian company to feature in Forbes 500 list.

Today, the Group’s turnover represents nearly 3 per cent of India’s GDP. The Reliance Group is a living testimony to Dhirubhai’s indomitable will, single-minded dedication and an unrelenting commitment to his goals.

Dhirubhai Ambani won many words and accolades during his life. He was named the Indian Entrepreneur of the 20th Century by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI). In June 1998, he was awarded the Dean’s Medal by The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, for setting an outstanding example of leadership. A poll conducted by The Times of India in 2000 voted him “greatest creator of wealth in the century”.

In November 2000, he was conferred the ‘Man of the Century’ award by Chemtech Foundation and Chemical Engineering World for his contribution to the growth and development of the chemical industry in India.

From the above story I wanted to highlight that Dhirubhai Ambani Was having a clear Objective in life, to do business and throughout the life he focused on achieving this objective by setting and attaining various goals right from selling Bhajias to creating Reliance group and he succeeded in achieving objective in true sense.

So, Having objective / purpose in life is very important to achieve or get what we want. In our society such things are not taught during the childhood and due to this we move ahead in our life without any direction and if we reach some good places this is purely because of our luck and not because of sincere effort.

This is also true that if we put our sincere effort in right direction, nothing can hold us back to achieve the objective in life.

A famous writer Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in his famous book “The Power of Intention” has defined Intention as a strong purpose or objective, accompanied by a determination to produce a desired result. People driven by intention are described as having strong will that won’t permit anything to interfere with achieving their inner desire.

If at all you have not yet realized your clear objective in life go ahead take some time from your daily schedule think and write down the purpose of your life and set short term and long term goals towards its attainment.

Purpose of Life is to be Happy

object4lifeThe core purpose of life is to be Happy.

Meaning of Life changes person to person but the core purpose remains the same to be Happy.

In everyday life I have observed that true happiness comes only with giving /sharing.

When we earn something then also we feel Happiness but that also generates greed of getting more and this sequence goes on and on this again becomes the reason for suffering and in this process we Forget the purpose of Life.

Everyone wants to be happy but we always try to postpone it by adding some material value to our happiness.

Most of the time we think and talk about either past or future and in this process we miss our present where we can actually act and enjoy our life.

Time is always dynamic and it never remains the same for few moment we can feel low or for the same moment we can feel high. But we can never feel the same always.

Sometime we feel like so bad for a situation but that feel is not permanent and the time comes when that thought becomes useless.

We must remember whatever happening is life will not happen second time. We should learn from now and improve ourselves for tackle the future situation.

In a job sometime we feel like leaving and joining other company because of the work pressure or something else. However if we can give some time to ourselves we feel so stupid about that particular thought and like the job.

Similarly in a relationship sometime we become very upset with some one and with passing time we feel the reason so stupid.

So, never worry about a situation if at all it does not cause a risk to life.

Live in present moment and enjoy the purpose of life.

You need not to search for Happiness it is always there, Change the way we look into the life.
