THE LIMITATIONS OF TRUE BLOGGING!

The Great Man when confronted with rowdy elements, hid himself in the Police Control Room and subsequently on the advice of the Chief of there escaped in disguise in front of the protesters..

Making it evident that protecting oneself becomes the primary duty and in that context anything done stands as right! 

But the same Personality made it clear subsequent to the incident saying,

  • "I don't know why I did that way at that point of time but this moment left to me, I am ready to surrender to my protesters and face their wrath rather than escape discretely!"
Making once again clear that none should act less when truly imbibed with a sure inner strength to face a certain threat!

Seen in such a context, am as a Blogger a certain personality in this world and protecting myself from a threat at that level becomes a requirement from my end. Thus my sayings sure deviate from my original expressions within and streamline with the pressures brought out by the powerful next to me.

And I can do nothing beyond here till I am blessed with a greater inner strength by the Grace of God..

When a man asked the Great Man of the Ashram to give him some food as he was hungry, the Great Personality said,

  • "Do this equivalent work, I'll give you food!"
When the man retorted saying that how a man collapsing with hunger could do any work, the Great Personality said,
  • "In that case, I'll give you food. Eat, relax for a while but finish my work and go!"
When the man refused to do that accusing the Noble Personality as cruel, the Great Man said,
  • "I don't mind. You can go now. You will not get food here!"
Very strictly speaking, that's the fundamental importance of work in our life and if I am blogging in my prime time, I sure need to earn my decent salary out of that!

Having reasonably taken care of the above 2 aspects of life, I should never stop beyond out of a further feeling in me that I may be humiliated of what I say because whatever be that, that has its own requirement in the world at that moment and I should necessarily bring it out for the overall betterment in me and my surroundings..

The Master truly clarified the same point through His advice once given to a humble man who was finding it difficult to concentrate on God saying,
  • “As you love your own goat kid very much, imagine the picture of your little goat in place of your Deity and thus continue your Spiritual Practice.. You are truly blessed!” 
Making it very clear that I should boldly bring out to the world that prompts me so strongly from within without feeling shy of doing the same!


All my blogging freely done taking care of the above 3 factors

sure becomes the requirement of the day

and anything different from this becomes

doubly sure the funny part of my blogging as such an expression from my end in that situation equally never stands as the requirement of day!

A 'GM' IS 'GM' AS LONG AS..

It was the day the General Manager of the Company was retiring..

A grand function was arranged and beyond the funds officially allocated for conduct of the function, the employees of the Company contributed their might out of their adoration, respect and for all that their GM had done for them and made the function a grand success.

Finally the beloved man was sent off with tears rolling down from the eyes of every one..

Three middle level Executives who witnessed all that had their own personal conversation subsequently..

"I am moved by the fact how people loved him so much and reacted beyond to his leaving. While in service too everyone had their own adoration for him.

If we work in this or in any Company, what's the use of leading a normal work life and casually exit at 60? It's not worth being like that at our work. And sure if we decide upon becoming some thing, nothing can really stop us. What do you say?"

The other 2 instantly nodded their heads in affirmation..

Time passed on and in the next 10 years the 3 gentlemen became the Heads of 3 Organisations all along their career each successively being

  • Workaholic and a Disciplined,

  • Smart and Intelligent and
  • Authoritative and Power Wielding!
Their times moved on thus with many of their Sub-ordinates feeling unhappy and discontented but having set in their minds moving in those directions, the 3 men never budged in and finally retired..

That day of retirement

For all the 3 was almost casual with routine speeches of praise and applause finally saying a bye..

The next day
  • For the sub-ordinates was one more day of their routine with the ex-chief taken off from their minds 

And
  • For the 3 retired GMs, an aimless small life in front in spite of each having an offer of Advisor/Consultant in their respective Companies!
There was a Unique Message..

'The GM you had seen years back was a unique personality all by himself..

  • By mere working hard and disciplined, none can never become like him, 
  • Even the smartness and intelligence can't get one to that level of a unique personality
  • And sure authority and power wielding will never do that wonder..
Here, it's a mixture of
  • Many open as well hidden features of the man, 
  • The drive within, 
  • His background, 
  • His dashing nature, 
  • His interactions with his fellow personnel, 
  • His goodness as well as 
  • His time 
And they together had made him such a person at his work..

Some of these are sure within the reach of all and thru' sincere attempts they can claim them as theirs..

But a few are sure unique to a personality and the time which one can't make them one's own whatever attempts they may make..

It doesn't mean that we shouldn't attempt as attempting here is one's duty and reaching the highest is forever the sacred aim but

There one should stop and never should run to reach the top by hook or crook and that type of interest if any prevails, it's better leave that at the earliest forever remembering the Saying,

'It's not the General Manger’s Post that brings dignity to a person; it's the person that brings dignity to a General Manager Post!'

THE SECRET.. 'XXXXXX'

“Dear! Let's talk softly. Else the neighbors may come to know about this. One man knows, every one around would know in no time. You agree that we don’t want the News Item being talked of so much at this stage itself? When it's the right time, we would sure be surprising people by announcing our XXXXXX!”

  • “You are right and I already took all precautions here.. I know that a secret of home should never be revealed. NO issues!"
“That's nice of you.. Now, let’s talk of tomorrow’s Plan. Are the window glass shutters fully closed so that our talk is never overheard outside?”
  • “Don't worry.This is winter and I keep the shutters of all windows closed daily evening at 6 PM so that the house remains warm. The exhaust fan provides necessary ventilation and actually under it's dull noise nothing will be heard from inside!"
“OK dear! Now, let's sit in the middle of the room and talk. I ever doubt sitting near to a partition wall or window and talk. It's easy to be overheard there whatever precautions we may take!”
  • “Shall I note down our proposed plan of activities in this book so that we don't miss major works involved in completing our XXXXXX?”
“Not at this moment.. Sometimes from such scribbles and notes too a lot can be inferred. I heard people taking out scrap chits from trash and guessing the matters!”
  • "You are right!"
“OK! Let's start at 10 AM tomorrow and finish off…."
  • "I forgot to tell you.. Our Rohit’s Class Teacher had sent a Slip asking us meet her and as she wants to discuss with us about his......."
"Done! We'll start at 9 itself tomorrow and finish off both the works. No problem!”

The next day at 9 AM, in the Basement Parking Area..

“Hi, Rohit! What happened? Why are you here? No school?”
  • “Uncle! I am going to school with my parents. They are coming down. I'm waiting!”
“What’s the matter dear?”
  • "It’s about...... and my parents are coming to discuss with our Miss…. They planned to finish off XXXXXX also along with this!”
“What! Your dad never told me that he finalized on XXXXXX?”

“Yes, Uncle! Everything is finalized. We had already gone to 2 places for this and met few people. As I know, there are only 3 problems.... My dad was saying........!"

THE 10 QUESTIONS 
I SHOULD NEVER STOP ASKING MYSELF 
AT MY WORK!

If a man has no enough means, he/she many times has to work for some one and receive wages. In case has enough means he/she will often make some one work for some one, pay wages and take profit. The employee and employer concepts are defined thus..

Further, the philosophy of a 100% Socialist Economy says..
'Work according to capacity and take according to need!'
and the philosophy of a 100% Capitalist Economy says..
'Work according to capacity and take according to capacity!'


The Mixed Economy alone sustains ultimately ranging from more of capitalist type to more of socialist type depending on the widening gap between the rich and poor involved!

Am I repeating the above Mantra daily within myself before entering my Work Arena? 

All works basically vary 

From totally of service type with nil profit aim supported by required funds flowing from outside
To totally of business type with max profit interest supported by nil funds flowing from outside!

Do I exactly know how the funds flow in for my Organization?

Dignity of work is a concept in Nature which changes with time. The world has defined the dignity of work many times always with deficiencies attached to it and never could do it to perfection.. 

Philosophies of the Capitalist, Socialist or Mixed Economies in vogue often define the dignity of work. Equally the survival aspects are the basic dictating forces behind all such rules and regulations!

Have I conceived this whole concept of working before going to have a tiff with my employer on flimsy issues?

Continuous improvement is the philosophy of surviving in a rather harsh competitive environment. No short cuts help here!

Have I started revising my basic learning or forgotten it under the cool of my daily routine?

Most of the jobs in the world are in the buyers’ market i.e., the buyer dictates and the seller confirms. Only a few jobs of very high specialized skills are in the sellers’ market i.e., the seller dictates and the buyer listens!

Mostly, the seller's role of confirming is inevitable for me at my work.. Am I well tuned up for this? 

Active work life only lies between ages approx 20-60 yrs. Below 20 is the period of developing basic skills for future job and above 60 is that of advices and consultations! 

Am I utilizing well this precious time '20-60' with full devotion which can never be extended in a life time?

In a work environment, continuity of job with high responsibility is more important than getting increments and promotions!

Am I looking at my assignment with more attention or constantly gazing thru' my pay slips and promotional orders?

Jobs are always given thru’ references. During the employment period, my reference forever is the current Employer + all the previous Employers!

Why am I quarreling with my work of today as none can erase that bad in future at any time?

Career growth directly or indirectly is a must in many spheres of work except super specialized skill areas. Starting with working level one will soon be doing a Supervisory Role, beyond rises to Managerial Level and finally reaches the Senior Executive Level or above that! 

A halt to my career growth beyond a certain time is ever seriously viewed in the Employment Arena and can never bring riches.. How much attentive am I here?

Every business has certain limit of operating finances. That depends on 

The demand in the market for the product, 
The paying capacity of the customers, 
The number of customers that consume the product,
The investing strategies of the company etc.. 

Accordingly the salary structure and career plans are implemented for the particular set-up! 

It may be my time now..

Why am I sticking to my existing set-up without moving on to the next business level very much feasible?

LIFE IS A BOX OF..


### "Never get into the eternal running, too much questioning and argumentative modes.. There's no great ultimate gain in all these activities.. One has to leave all this and go when the time comes.. Whatever way life comes up just adjust and live.. If you are happy and others around you are happy do that and relax..


That way seen this
Life Is A Box of 
nothing but endless 
Worries and Adjustments
packed tight and kept with me!" 

Was the assertion of 
the inactive tamasik man 
for whom possessing and enjoying with minimum activity alone were the driving forces in life..

### "This is my right and I completed my responsibilities too for the day as per laid out rules and procedures.. No one can point out me further and I'll never allow that to happen at any time in my life..


That way seen this
Life Is A Box of 
nothing but many 
Problems and Reactions
packed tight and kept with me!" 

Was the assertion of 
the active rajasik man 
for whom possessing and enjoying with maximum activity were the real driving forces in life..

### "Even though I've my right here, I’ll extend a helping hand to my next man in need and do something beyond my assigned responsibilities for his/her benefit..

That way seen this
Life Is A Box of 
nothing but continuous 
Surprises and Solutions
packed tight and kept with me!"  

Was the assertion of 
the morally obliged satvik man 
for whom possessions and enjoyments could be forgone a bit with the activity continuing at high level in life..

### "In this life, it's better I forego some of my rights over my possessions and enjoyments, allocate that time and energy for helping out the distressed around and thus take up a sizable new responsibility.. Of course, this'll be done only after completing my primary works beyond which my people would be able to stand by themselves..

That way seen this
Life Is A Box of 
nothing but series of 
Events and Actions
packed tight and kept with me!" 

Was the assertion of 
the ethically inclined satvik man 
who believed that life was not for possessing and enjoying alone but for extending a service to mankind with the activity continuing at high level in life..

### "This life is to be just lived through as there's no other go and it'll not listen to me beyond..
But equally there's no meaning in running round the glitter and glamour which may promise the heaven today but soon show the hidden hell part of it.. Let me limit, leave as many enjoyments as possible, minimize possessions and thus live a simple life doing service oriented works and remain Prayerful to the Almighty all the time..

That way seen this
Life Is A Box of 
nothing but only 
Non Possessions and Sacrifices
packed tight and kept with me!" 

Was the assertion of 
the truth established sativik personality
when the self everywhere was felt light at the back of a firm Faith that God alone moves the world and one has to just do his/her part of work with the activity continuing at high level in life!

THE 'DEJA VU'.. FRIEND!

That Sunday afternoon after a heavy lunch we, myself and my current 3 mates moved on to spend our evening in the best possible way..

As my luxurious car rolled over smoothly with the driver doing his job silently I, in the front seat was in constant communication with my 3 mates sitting at the back on my future plans.. The 3 had their own suggestions in the process..

The car soon came to stop at a signal and I casually looked out.. To my surprise I could recognize my earlier friend whom I left long back in his helmet stopping at a certain distance from me.

He appeared to be in constant communication with his friend behind him who too was seen wearing a helmet.. For a minute, the friend behind took off his helmet, adjusted something and put it back on his head..

As I had a quick glance of that man suddenly my mind rushed back..

Yes.. I had seen this man.. Definitely not seen alone but interacted too with him for many years long before..

I tried to brush off that alert within but my consciousness never left me from doing that..

"How could you forget this man in your life?"

It was seen asking..

Meanwhile the signal became green, I left that incident there itself and we moved on myself chit-chatting with my mates.. After finishing few works soon we were at our favorite Market Place..

As I was parking my vehicle in the parking lot to my surprise, my earlier friend on the 2 wheeler was seen in distance about to start his vehicle with the same friend behind may be after finishing his work..

Just then a man in great rush was seen approaching my friend for a lift and there was a problem as 3 could not travel on the 2 wheeler..

I was about to step out as I had a big vehicle with me with extra seats and offer to that man in need a free ride to his place and he could as well travel in the comfort of my luxury car..

But my 3 mates instantly stopped me from doing that saying..

"What are you doing? You allow that man in your car? No.. we'll not allow you do that!"

Saying thus they forced my dirver to move on..

I could say nothing there else it would be a tiff with them which I had no courage to pick up as without them my present life sure would come to a dead stop.. As my car moved on, I casually looked at my old friend on his scooter..

The 'deja vu' friend was seen gracefully offering his seat to the man who requested a lift with a smile..

As my car moved on, I looked back at my 3 mates behind me.. They the

Greed,
Power Thirsty and the
Pride


In me were seen relaxing back in their seats and as I looked out of the car thru' the glass window, I saw at distance my earlier friend moving on his 2 wheeler with his new friend

Peace

on his back, the 'dejavu' friend

Honesty

Waving to them from distance whom as I suddenly remembered left long back in my life and embraced the highly enchanting

THE FUNDAMENTALS OF A GOOD ADVISING..

A well informed man once approached a group of hard working people and told them that he had all the material with him to educate them on how they could do their works well, have a good life and thus be happy in their lives..

The group politely told him,

  • “Sir! This moment, we have no time to listen, look into and follow your advice as we are very busy with no additional time at our disposal for learning anything new other than repeating our own routine!”
The gentleman waited patiently for the day when they would be having free time and it never came up..
  • On week days the men were busy with their work..
  • During weekends busy with their personal life and meeting those requirements.. and
  • On a holiday relaxing the onetime chance in life..
And their life continued thus without his advice!

Seen thus, it's very much evident that the Speaker-Listener relation in the world is ever sacred and all individuals, all places and all times never uphold the sacred relationship to establish!

Here from both the Speaker's and Listener's points of view,

  • The primary requirement is to have an open mind..

  • The next requirement is firming up to free himself/herself from the so called ‘Worth’ or ‘Specialty’ which includes one's own values, opinions, dogmas, theories, beliefs, the likes and dislikes etc without ever questioning the same in the next man..

  • The third requirement is freeing oneself from all the above never seen as a path of burden; instead experiencing it as a path of effortlessness through the instantaneous understanding of the Spirit of Living..
  • The final requirement is knowing well that 
All times are not favorable for this to take place,
At times such occasion may not come up too in the entire span of one's life,
All the methods of Honest Work help,
No Special Paths bring quick results and
No Materialist Experience has an edge!

Tuned up thus, when a person decides to speak out something to the world with a clear understanding that
  • Nature is the original teacher to all and the happenings around and their interactions with one’s life alone teach a lot, 
He/she is sure seen as

The True Wonder and the world around readies itself to help him/her out!

Equally tuned up thus, when the Listener readies himself/herself to listen with,
  • A strong urge to learn which alone makes one absorb the toughest,
He/she is sure seen as

The True Wonder and the world around readies itself to help him/her out!

When an interaction takes place between such a Speaker and Listener,
  • The material of interaction remains as the Sacred Entity which becomes the requirement of the world at that moment and 
  • It automatically becomes the 'Right Material' with both the individuals to be taken to the Deity as their best Offering at their Place of Worship!
There alone a 'True Change' materializes through an 'Advice!'
