Often, you go in for things that you don’t really want. You want things because others have them or because of what others might say or think about it. Many a time, you are not clear as to what you want because you have not looked into yourself. You are swayed away by fleeting desires. Your desire is not even your desire. You went somewhere and ate something and all that wrong food, situation, company and everything brought in a storm inside you and you started believing the storm as your desire.

That is why, often you are not happy when your desires are fulfilled or the fulfillment of your desires does not stay too long or charming for long. It breaks down with ease or you wonder as to why you got into this or you start believing that you really wanted it and that is why it has happened.

Self-study. Observing yourself. See what is your self. You have purified the body but are you the body? You have made your mind lighter but are you the mind? Are you the thoughts? Are you your emotions? Who are you? This is self-study. This leads you upwards to the Universe which is unknown to us. It takes you a step further. Self-study eliminates misery and suffering.

About G...

Evolving and revolving! Douglas Adams & Woody Allen are my soul mates from another era. My quirkiness is an eclectic mix of Jess (New Girl), Dharma and Carrie Bradshaw. Sharing my birthday with Paulo Coelho & Stephen Fry, i'm always reading a book and enjoy having engaging conversations about life and love. I take children, wit and play seriously, very seriously. I'm a renaissance soul who enjoys yoga, vodka with cranberry and doodling. Working in the field of Education and Story-telling, there are only two things i look forward to: Knowing myself and Everything that matters!
