its possible to revolutionize this generation

Open your mind and you will see what the eye cannot. 

I agree with the statement. There is an ancient saying in Sanskrit, which when translated means, mind is the cause for one’s own bondage as well as liberation . Let us analyse the fact objectively rather than subjectively.We are made up of three types of bodies. The first one is physical body which others can see; the second is subtle body comprising mind, intellect, ego and chitta[the space where reflection takes place.] The third is causal body which constitutes three types of qualities called satva ,rajas and tamas which can be roughly translated as harmony, motion and inertia. The body in total is made up of twenty four constituents and these constituents are five fundamental elements[ether,air,fire,water and earth]five gross organs, [hands, limbs, organ of speech, excretory and reproductive organs] five subtle sense organs [ears ,eyes,nose tongue and skin], five objects of senses [ sound, touch,form, taste and smell], mind, intellect ego and chitta. Thus we can conclude, mind is a constituent of our subtle body.  

Which is the seat of mind? Many confuse mind with brain and heart. The real seat of mind is five subtle senses. Thus mind pervades the entire body through sense organs which are extrovert and makes the finite soul experience the dualities in life.

What do we yearn for in life? It is nothing but happiness. Due to our ignorance, we think that happiness lies in external objects, and waste the entire life chasing them. We forget that we are the very embodiment of bliss.

In the chariot of body, the passenger is the soul; intellect is the charioteer; sense organs are the horses; mind is the bridle and the objects of senses are the path, these horses tread. When the bridle [mind] is firm, horses[sense organs] have no choice but to listen to the charioteer [ intellect].Then life will have a goal, and will be meaningful. Suppose the bridle is not firm, horses move recklessly and life becomes real disaster Therefore, bridle is the key to happiness.

Many achievers aim at annihilation of mind. When mind is weaned from its home that is sense organs and merged in intellect, it loses its separate entity and becomes intellect itself. Now the mind is empowered. When this happens life becomes beautiful.

To achieve this, the ancient seers prescribed Shravana or listening carefully to the preceptor, Manana or reflecting on the teaching of the preceptor, and Nididhyasana or meditating on what is taught. The practice of Astanga Yoga [eight limb yoga] of Patanjal’s would also be of great help. All the eight limbs i.e. Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama,Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi must be given equal importance. Thus mind can both enslave and empower us.

IT HAS BEGAN (a)

so, it has been sanctioned, the plan is in motion. One goal one chance. This is a mission like no other. this is what i have been preparing for.
i hope i dont look behind, i hope i dont forget those critical and imperative lessons from the past. they are my foundation they are my strenght.
on the other hand change is inevitable and growth is intentional. growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown. i must become the change i yearn for most. i have to give it a try, ill be damned if i dont. anyways as the old proverbs goes
“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” – Arthur Ashe

“Poor is the pupil who does not surpass his master.” – Leonardo da Vinci

“…a great many of us are possessed by our possessions.” – Mildred Lisette Norman

“The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live.” – Auguste Rodin

“If you always do what you always did – you’ll always get what you always got.” – Unknown

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.
