Hanuman vs Bheema | Santhosh DR

Hanuman lifted a Mountain not to prove that he is Powerful but to save Life of Lakshmana.

Bheema is as strong as 1000 elephants but failed to lift Hanuman’s tail because he wanted to prove that he is the Powerful.

Throw away Ahankar! Bow down to Shankar!

Don’t Take Anything Personally | Santhosh DR

Whatever people think of you is really about the image they have of you, and that image isn’t you. All their opinions about you really concern the character who lives in their story, not in yours. If someone gives you an opinion and says, “Hey, you look fat,” the truth is that this person is dealing with his or her own feelings, beliefs, and opinions. That person tried to send poison to you, and if you take it personally, it’s because you agree with whatever was said. As soon as you agree, you take that poison and it becomes yours. But if you don’t agree, whatever that person says will not affect you.

Taking things personally makes you easy prey for the predators who want to feed you their emotional poison. They can hook you easily with one little opinion, and because you take it personally, you eat all their poison. But if you do not take it personally, you are immune to the poison, and that is the gift of the second agreement.

By taking things personally, you make something big out of something so little, and you set yourself up to suffer for nothing. When you take things personally, you feel offended, and your reaction is to defend your beliefs. You have the need to be right and make others wrong, and this creates conflict. When you make it a strong habit not to take anything personally, you avoid many upsets in your life. Someone can intentionally send you emotional poison, and because you don’t eat it, your anger, jealousy, and envy will disappear. Even your sadness will simply disappear if you don’t take things personally.

Once you can see that nothing others say or do is about you, it doesn’t matter who gossips about you, who blames you, who rejects you, who disagrees with your point of view. When you take nothing personally, you don’t even bother to defend your point of view. Whatever people say doesn’t affect you because you are immune to their opinions and their emotional poison.

Don’t take anything personally is a beautiful tool of interaction with your own kind, human to human. And it’s a big ticket to personal freedom because you don’t have to rule your life according to other people’s opinions. This really frees you! You can do whatever you want to do, knowing that whatever you do has nothing to do with anyone but you.

Once you understand that all humans live in their own world, in their own dream, the second agreement is pure common sense: Don’t take anything personally.

What’s the size of God? | Santhosh DR

A boy asked the father: What’s the size of God? Then the father looked up to the sky and seeing an airplane asked the son: What’s the size of that airplane? The boy answered: It’s very small. I can barely see it.

So the father took him to the airport and as they approached an airplane he asked: And now, what is the size of this one? The boy answered: Wow daddy, this is huge!

Then the father told him: God, is like this, His size depends on the distance between you and Him. The closer you are to Him, the greater He will be in your life! 😊

Forgiveness Is A Virtue? | Santhosh DR

In this level, the person is unable to forgive the offender and keeps on thinking about him and the unpleasant event over and over again. The effect is not only so much pain and suffering in the current lifetime, but also extended emotional attachments and problems in the future incarnations.

According to great spiritual teachers including Master Choa Kok Sui, two things bind souls together: love and hatred.

By loving a person deeply, there are higher chances of meeting and being with the beloved soul in the future incarnations. These are the people that we love and feel comfortable and connected with even from the first few moments of being together.

The sad news is that “hatred” also binds souls together as there is a lesson in the relationship to be learnt. The lesson is love!

Therefore the relationship between the two souls who hate each other often gets closer and closer, to teach them to love one another. Most of the couples that have difficult relationships, parents and children who cannot get along, brothers and sisters that have a hard time being together fall under this category. They need to learn to love each other, break the wicked cycle and let go.

“Anger and Hatred bind people together! When you Hate someone, it creates an “Energy Link” with the person. You become chained to the person and your Soul becomes entangled with that person. If you want to be free, you must Forgive people.”

Master Choa Kok Sui

Ugly – Anurag Kashyap’s Film. The Underrated One!

If there is one movie that you can watch and never be the same again, it would be Anurag Kashyap’s Ugly.

This movie portrays the ugliness of humans, our corrupt system of police and how capable it is but equally impotent, how much more we could have done but didn’t, and so much more.

It will leave you devastated inside and out, take it as a warning.

An Underrated Movie!

This movie gave me sleepless nights. One of the finest and underrated movie.. 😓 and the acting as well as the screens were so well done that it actually affects you big time.

Deeply! And the characterisation, damn that was too good. No hero, only villains against villains.

Seven Leadership Principles to Learn from an Eagle!

1. Eagles fly Alone and at High Altitudes. They don’t fly with sparrows, ravens, and other small birds.

MEANING; Stay away from narrow-minded people, those that bring you down. Eagle flies with Eagles. Keep good company.

2. Eagles have an Accurate Vision. They have the ability to focus on something as far as 5km away. No matter the obstacles, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it.

MEANING; Have a vision and remain focused no matter what the obstacles and you will succeed.

3. Eagles do not Eat Dead things. They Feed only on Fresh Prey.

MEANING; Do not rely on your past success, keep looking for new frontiers to conquer. Leave your past where it belongs, in the past.

4. Eagles Love the Storm.

When clouds gather, the eagle gets excited, the eagle uses the storms wind to lift itself higher. Once it finds the wind of the storm, the eagle uses the raging storm to lift itself above the clouds. This gives the eagle an opportunity to glide and rest its wings. In the meantime, all the other birds hide in the branches and leaves of the tree.

MEANING; Face your challenges head on knowing that these will make you emerge stronger and better than you were. We can use the storms of life to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid of challenges, rather they relish them and use them profitably.

5. When a Female Eagle Meets a Male Eagle and they want to mate, she flies down to earth, picks a twig and flies back into the air with the male eagle in hot pursuit. Once she has reached a height high enough for her, she drops the twig and let it fall to the ground while she watches. The male eagle chases after the twig and catches it before it reached the ground, then bring it back to the female eagle. The female eagle grabs the twig and flies to a much higher altitude and drops the twig again for the male eagle to chase. This goes on for hours with the height increasing each time until the female eagle is assured that the male eagle has mastered the art of picking the twig which shows commitment. Then and only then will she allow him to mate with her.

MEANING; Whether in private life or business, one should test the commitment of the people intended for partnership.

6. Eagles Prepare for Training! They remove the feathers and soft grass in the nest so that the young ones get uncomfortable in preparation for flying and eventually flies when it becomes unbearable to stay in the nest.

MEANING; Leave your Comfort Zone, there is No Growth there.

7. When the Eagle Grows Old!

His feathers becomes weak and cannot take him as fast and as high as it should. This makes him weak and could make him die. So he retires to a place far away in the mountains. While there, he plucks out the weak feathers on his body and breaks its beaks and claws against the rocks until he is completely bare; a very bloody and painful process. Then he stays in this hiding place until he has grown new feathers, new beaks and claws and then he comes out flying higher than before.

MEANING; We occasionally need to shed off old habit no matter how difficult, things that burden us or add no value to our lives should be let go of.
