The more we desire the more we get distracted and ultimately distributed. I have realised there are many things we like and enjoy and only a few things that we truly love. It was difficult for me for the longest time to know what I love and focus all my attention on it.
We are a society filled with information and pictures which are constantly changing our minds from being this or doing that. The outer voices are way too many to help us choose what we want in life or career. Not that they don’t help us get close to our goal but it’s the inner voice which keeps telling what we should do.
We may get mesmerised by someone’s success or work and wish to be that. But being is not what we should focus on, doing is what we need to. The result is the outcome of the process. Process (doing) is what matters the most. But we often forget the process and fallen love with the results. Rather we should fall in love with the process and truly enjoy it. Results will eventually come but the love of process will keep us going.
It’s so easy to lie and it has always been. I thought about writing this article/blog because I am currently reading the book called Lying by Sam Harris. In this book the author talks about how lying will never help you and what are the advantages of telling the truth that will help each one of us if we decide to say the truth every time. Firstly I must truthful agree that I have lied many a times and I am very sure we all do it intentionally or unintentionally. But almost 95% of my lies are said for the betterment of everyone (including myself) or for the well being of everyone. As I am reading the book I am simultaneously practicing and consciously telling myself to speak the truth. In some cases I was able to do it but in other cases I thought its crucial to lie, in such a senario my mind and the reality tells me that lying is the most sensible choice. I have realised that truth will definitely serve me in the long run. But practicing that in some situation gets impossible. I feel the best ways to cope up with such situations is to choose not to speak or react at all. This too may be difficult by atleast it is better than lying.
