What are crazy things people still believe in all over the earth?

Cannibalistic gum chewing in Turkey



In some parts of Turkey you may want to think twice before whipping out a piece of chewing gum. There is a belief that if you are chewing gum at night it’s bad luck. This is because at night instead of chewing gum, you’d actually be chewing rotting dead flesh (Eew).

Groaning cheese for a newborn



You’ve probably heard of Swiss cheese, cheddar cheese, or pepper jack cheese but have you heard of Groaning Cheese? In Medieval England, expectant mothers made what they called a ‘Groaning Cheese’ which was a large wheel of cheese that matured for nine months as the unborn baby grew. When the ‘groaning time’ or time of birth came, the whole family would celebrate by eating this cheese until nothing but the outer rind was left. The newborn would then be passed through the rind on Christening day to be blessed with a long and prosperous life. What a cheesy superstition!

Good luck horseshoe



Some people believe hanging a horseshoe in the bedroom or on a door knob with its ends pointing upwards will bring good luck and keep nightmares away. This belief comes from the fact that a horse shoe has seven holes, which is considered to be a lucky number. Also the fact that is made of iron can supposedly ward off evil spirits that may haunt you in your dreams.

Friday the 13th



Friday the 13th has been a source of superstition ever since the 19th century. Though it’s origin is shrouded in speculations and theories, it’s impact is quite evident. Many people will purposely avoid doing anything significant (like business meetings, socials, banquets, etc) due to the belief that the day is cursed and its a source of ill fortune.

Curse of the Opal stone



If your favorite stone is the Opal, you’re out of luck…literally since this stone is said to bring bad luck to whoever wears it. This superstition comes from the 1829 best selling novel ‘Anne of Geierstein’ by Sir Walter Scott. In the novel, Lady Hermione was falsely accused of being a demon due to her sudden death after a drop of holy water accidentally falls on her opal jewelry and changes its color. This book had such an effect on the image of the Opal that shortly after its publication, the Opal market crashed and Opal prices dropped by 50%.

Ringing of the Bells

Have you ever wondered why bells are always associated with weddings and special occasions? As it turns out, the association stems from the widely held belief that bells frighten evil spirits away. This belief originated during Queen Elizabeth’s reign for two reasons; to ask for prayers for the departed soul and to drive away the evil spirits who stood at the foot of the bed.

Bird poop equals riches



Don’t worry, you read the title right. In Russia, there is a belief that if a bird defecates on you, your car, or your property it’s a sign of good luck and may bring you riches. The more birds involved, the richer you’ll be! So next time a bird poops on you, count it all joy.

Old, new, borrowed, blue



This popular wedding tradition is said to have originated during the Victorian era and involves giving the bride various gifts. One of the gifts is something old and represents continuity; another is new and represents hope and the future; the third is borrowed and symbolizes borrowed happiness while the last is blue and is supposed to bring purity, love, and fidelity.

Black cats, bad luck



Most people have heard the saying that if a black cat crosses your path its bad luck (if you haven’t well now you have). This interesting superstition finds it’s origin in the middles ages. Single women (usually elderly) who associated themselves with many cats where believed to be witches who could become cats themselves. Thus a black cat crossing your path could actually be a witch.

Unlucky smoking triad



From the Crimean War through World War I, it was considered bad luck among soldiers to light three cigarettes with one match. It was theorized that by the time the third cigarette was lit, a sniper would have had the time to have the soldier in his sight, ready to make the kill. However, some believe that the superstition may have been invented by match tycoon Ivar Krueger to drum up more business.


Counting crows



No, im not referring to the 90′s band. It’s believed that the amount of crows in a murder has the ability to predict your fortune as exemplified by the popular phrase: “One’s bad / Two’s luck / Three’s health / Four’s wealth / Five’s sickness / Six is death.” More than six however seems to be up to the person whose counting.

Jinxed birds



The Wryneck or Jinxtorquilla are a breed of birds that can twist their heads very liberally. A superstitious belief among the locals is that if this bird twists its head towards you, death is on the horizon.

Soul capturing mirrors



Most people use mirrors daily which means, according to this superstition, most people are soulless. There is a superstition that states that looking into a mirror steals your soul. This helps explain why the evil queen uses a mirror to harm Snow White, why Narcissus was ensnared by his own reflection, and why soulless vampires have no reflection. Think twice before you look into the bathroom mirror…you have been warned.

Fingers crossed for good luck



To cross one’s fingers is a hand gesture commonly used for good luck. Which makes sense since it was used during ancient Christian persecution by believers to identify other believers as a sign of peace. Today however, this has evolved to excuse the telling of white lies which may have its roots in the belief that the power of the Christian cross may save a person from being sent to hell for telling a lie.

Photographic soul cage



When photography was first invented in the early 19th century, people all over the world held the unfounded belief that taking someone’s picture was akin to taking his/her soul. Thus if an enemy was able to obtain a photograph of you, he/she not only held your soul but also held a spiritual power over you. Thank goodness this is just a superstition, I can only imagine how many people would have power over me…(Facebook).

No 13



Not to be confused with Friday the 13th (which is a superstition of the actual day) but similar in nature, this superstition simply states that the number 13 is associated with bad luck. That’s why many architects refused (some still do) to design stairs that ended with 13 steps or buildings that ended with a 13th floor. The fear of the number 13 is so real to many people, that an actual phobia has been created to describe it; its called Triskaidekaphobia. (try to say that 13 times fast).

When you wish upon a star



The superstition involving wishing on the first star you see in the evening is somewhat uncertain. Some Europeans believed that the gods would occasionally peer down, and when they moved the sky, a star would escape and fall down. The Greeks also believed that the stars where falling human souls, and it was lucky to make a wish on them.

Opening an umbrella indoors



According to superstition, if you open an umbrella indoors you are literally asking for bad luck to “rain on you”. One explanation comes from the days when umbrellas were used as protection from the sun; opening one inside was an insult to the sun god who would then curse you with bad luck. Another theory states that an umbrella protects you against the storms of life, so opening one inside your house insults the guardian spirits of your home (whom also protects you from the storms of life), causing them to leave you unprotected.

New broom, new house, bad luck



There are many superstitions associated with brooms (heck, that could be a list all in itself) but there is one very curious and particular superstition that we want to caution you on. As the lore goes, you cannot sweep dirt out of a new house (or apartment) with a new broom unless you sweep something in first. If you don’t sweep something in first, then you will be sweeping out your good luck. Do not sweep out your good luck!

Lucky rabbit’s foot



To have this token is an unfortunate thing for the rabbit but a magnet of fortune for the wearer. According to superstition (which can be traced as far back as the seventh century BC) the rabbit’s supernatural luck could be exploited by taking the left hind foot of a rabbit that was shot (or captured) in a creepy cemetery on a full moon.(I still fail to see how this is lucky for the rabbit).

Knock on wood



The superstition of Knocking on wood, or simply saying “knock on wood” after making a hopeful statement, is a consequence of the idea that you’re tempting fate by acknowledging your good fortune. It’s possible that the expression comes from an ancient belief that good spirits lived in trees, so by knocking on something wooden, a person was calling on the spirits for protection. Another reason why we should all be tree huggers.

Breaking a mirror



We’ve already mentioned how mirrors are believed to be soul sucking mystical items (which is bad enough) but what happens when you break these devices? Why, seven years of bad luck of course! Some superstitious sources state that the trapped souls adversely influences your luck. And here you thought you were doing them a favor! Nope. Make sure those suckers stay inside that mirror!

“God bless you”



For many; saying “God Bless You” after someone sneezes is a gesture of politeness. However, the origin of this interesting superstition is somewhat two fold. On the one hand, it’s believed that the phrase originated with Pope Gregory the Great. He would say “God Bless You” to people who sneezed during the bubonic plague in hopes that the prayer would keep them safe. However another possible origin comes from the ancient belief that the soul escapes the body during a sneeze unless God prevented this by blessing them.

Four-leaf clover



Though the origin of wishing over a four-leaf clover is lost to antiquity it has long been a symbol of good luck and fortune. It has also been used in some traditions for finding a husband or a wife. The way this works (for you single people) is by first finding a four leaf clover (good luck with that one), if you happen to find one, you must then eat it (or put it inside your shoe…but eating it is more fun). After this, the luck powers activate and the first person you come in contact after the activation will be your future mate…(Word of warning, stay clear of anyone you don’t want as a future mate).

Itchy palms



There seems to be a lot of variations on this superstition, but the idea of having an itchy palm generally refers to someone who is greedy or has an insatiable desire for money. Some people believe that if the right palm itches, you will lose money, while an itchy left palm means that money is coming your way. If both palm itches…you may want to go to a doctor for that.

Beginner's luck

Usually grumbled by an expert who just lost a game to a novice, "beginner's luck" is the idea that newbies are unusually likely to win when they try out a sport, game or activity for the first time.

Beginners might come out ahead in some cases because the novice is less stressed out about winning. Too much anxiety, after all, can hamper performance. Or it could just be a statistical fluke, especially in chance-based gambling games.

Or, like many superstitions, a belief in beginner's luck might arise because of confirmation bias. Confirmation bias is a psychological phenomenon in which people are more likely to remember events that fit their worldview. If you believe you're going to win because you're a beginner, you're more likely to remember all the times you were right — and forget the times you ended up in last place.

Find a penny, pick it up,,,

And all day long, you'll have good luck. This little ditty may arise because finding money is lucky in and of itself. But it might also be a spin-off of another old rhyme, "See a pin, pick it up/ and all day long you'll have good luck/ See a pin, let it lay/ and your luck will pass away."

Don't walk under that ladder!

Frankly, this superstition is pretty practical. Who wants to be responsible for stumbling and knocking a carpenter off his perch? But one theory holds that this superstition arises from a Christian belief in the Holy Trinity: Since a ladder leaning against a wall forms a triangle, "breaking" that triangle was blasphemous.

Then again, another popular theory is that a fear of walking under a ladder has to do with its resemblance to a medieval gallows. We're sticking with the safety-first explanation for this one.

Bad luck comes in threes

Remember confirmation bias? The belief that bad luck comes in threes is a classic example. A couple of things go wrong, and believers may start to look for the next bit of bad luck. A lost shoe might be forgotten one day, but seen as the third in a series of bad breaks the next.

666

Three sixes in a row give some people the chills. It's a superstition that harks back to the Bible. In the Book of Revelation, 666 is given as the number of the "beast," and is often interpreted as the mark of Satan and a sign of the end times.

According to State University of New York at Buffalo anthropologist Philips Stevens, the writer of Revelation was writing to persecuted Christians in code, so the numbers and names in the book are contemporary references. Three sixes in a row is probably the numeric equivalent of the Hebrew letters for the first-century Roman Emperor Nero. [End of the World? Top Doomsday Fears]

Make a wish on a wishbone

The tradition of turkey bone tug-of-war goes back a long way. Legend has it that first-century Romans used to fight over dried wishbones — which they believed were good luck — and would accidentally break them, ushering in the idea that whoever has the largest bit of bone gets their wish. Bird bones have also been used in divination throughout history, with a supposed soothsayer throwing the bones and reading their patterns to predict the future.

Most common one



1. A bird in the house is a sign of a death

2. A loaf of bread should never be turned upside down after a slice has been cut from it.

3. Never take a broom along when you move. Throw it out and buy a new one.

4. If the first butterfly you see in the year is white, you will have good luck all year.

5. If a black cat walks towards you, it brings good fortune, but if it walks away, it takes the good luck with it.

6. An acorn at the window will keep lightning out

7. A dog howling at night when someone in the house is sick is a bad omen.

8. It’s bad luck to leave a house through a different door than the one used to come into it.

9. A horseshoe hung in the bedroom will keep nightmares away.

10. If you catch a falling leaf on the first day of autumn you will not catch a cold all winter.

11. If a mirror in the house falls and breaks by itself, someone in the house will die soon.

12. Dropping an umbrella on the floor means that there will be a murder in the house.

13. All windows should be opened at the moment of death so that the soul can leave.

14. If the groom drops the wedding band during the ceremony, the marriage is doomed.

15. To dream of a lizard is a sign that you have a secret enemy.

16. If a friend gives you a knife, you should give him a coin, or your friendship will soon be broken.

17. You should never start a trip on Friday or you will meet misfortune.

18. Dream of running: a sign of a big change in your life.

19. If a clock which has not been working suddenly chimes, there will be a death in the family.

20. It is bad luck to light three cigarettes with the same match

THE RED HILL’S KING
 
Rise, O Red Hill’s King!
Prep your armies vast.
The demon horde conches the music o’ war.
Here arrives the beastly Son of Satan from South.
 
Your wicked Queen ran away,
Dealt your ancestral Holy Casket to the Beast.
The dark prodigy advances,
An ambition to annex your empire with Hell.
 
Why you drink now, my Lord?
This ain’t no cause of revel, you imbecile.
The royal sages forewarned,
Yet had no impact on your head.
 
O there he comes,
There they lay, your murdered guards.
Red Hill’s besieged,
Enters the Beast in your Royal Court.
 
 
Stomps and shatters your Holy Casket,
Stomps and shatters your peace.
Down on your knees you beg mercy,
Yet Ares directs to war.
 
Draws your sword from your scabbard
And strikes it at the Beast’s belly.
Stands, he, unscathed
And you, my Lord, in horror.
 
Gropes, he, from your hair
And drags you out on battlefield.
The ghastly battalion awaits,
For a sacrifice to Satan’s broth.
 
Your General marches forth aside,
Your army fearlessly behind,
You slice your sword at the Beast’s wrist
And you join your forces to command.
 
The gruesome clash begins,
A battle of Herculean might.
Fearlessly ride, you,
Slaying the monsters of the Beast.
 
Down goes your tower,
Down goes your castle to ruination.
Demonic catapults fire upon your army,
Diminishing your numbers’ might.
 
Unaffected, you charge,
Take the demon Beast head on.
Your General rides along with you,
Your most loyal warrior, a true Lancelot.
 
Down falls your number vast,
Down falls the Beast’s horde,
Your General trips down the usurper,
You strike his chest and splice his heart out.
 
Falls the Beast silent,
Drained off his flesh and blood.
You raise your sword sky-high,
The demon horde bewildered.
 
Retreats down the Hill,
The mighty usurper’s forces,
Take your sword to your reliquary,
A blade carrying the Beast’s heart.
 
Replace your Holy Casket with it,
Display your glory;
Head back to your throne,
And reclaim your inner peace.
 
Rebuilds your castle, brick-by-brick,
Regains your kingdom’s might.
Yet peace is afar,
For the fugitives still revolt.
 
Your remainder army suppresses them,
You rule your kingdom,
But the sky grows dark again,
A new struggle dawns.
 
Enters your General in Royal Court,
Speaks well of you from the commoner’s mouth.
Self’s glory lost amidst,
Exits the Court, this Machiavellian.
 
Enters the reliquary, this fallen comrade,
Takes your glorious blade
And dips the Beast’s heart
In the raging Satan’s flame.
 
Places the burning heart, he,
Into the bony ribs of imprisoned Beast’s remains.
Monster is revived,
A scion of Hell’s vengeance.
 
Rises the Devil Beast,
Snaps the neck of your General, my Lord.
Rises, he, from his dingy cell,
Into his ethereal form.
 
Burns a hole in your castle’s foundation,
Brings it down brick-for-brick.
A quake shakes the ground he walks,
Raises back his army, undead.
 
The demon ghouls march forth,
Revived under their commander,
Numbers regained.
A multitude of Death.
 
Your demeanour broken, my Lord,
Your numbers spent.
Your castle crumbles,
Your kingdom in mortal peril.
 
Ride out, you, to the battlefield,
With your remaining cavalry.
Infantry armed by your inspiration,
And scantily by armour and weapons.
 
Drawn close to each other,
The Beast and you;
A word to propagate upon,
Before the climactic bloodshed.
 
Beast: “Surrender, Red Hill’s King.
Naught hath happened irrevocable.
Surrender thee, and I
Shall make thee, my well-paid herald.”
 
King: “Nay! Thy fiery demon.
Pierce my bosom’s heart,
Mutilate my corpse!
The soul within shall reunite with the Holy Kingdom!”
 
Angrily, the Beast replies:
“Father Satan shall hath
Thy soul as his broth!”
And swings his mace down upon the King.
 
The Red Hill’s King with all his might,
Blocks the charge with his sword.
“Charge!” says you, my Lord,
And your loyal army advances to war.
 
The epic clash begins,
The gruesome war ensues,
Your numbers fully spent,
You retreat to your ruins.
 
Afraid and wounded, you flee,
Sends your last man to West.
Finds a cavern deep below
The ruins of your castle, to hide.
 
Marches forth the Beast
To your hideout.
Pulls you out like a worm from ground,
Drags you back, you cowardly wretch.
 
Tosses you in front of himself,
Orders his ghoulish force at halt.
Challenges your might, your glory,
In a head-on duel.
 
You arm yourself with your renowned blade,
The Beast with his fiery mace.
Prance upon one-another,
To decide this Age’s fate.
 
Valour you show, O mighty Red Hill’s Lord,
But your courage has no impact upon the Beast.
Every scar, every strain upon his body,
Brings you close to Hell’s wrath.
 
Has had enough antics, the Beast,
Strikes you with his mighty mace,
Your armour saves your bosom,
Yet you cough out blood.
 
Strikes, he, down his mace again,
Down upon your back.
You eat the dirt of your soil,
Adulterated by your royal blood.
 
Weary and wounded you lie,
Puddle of blood on the ground.
Choked by your final breaths,
Await you, my Lord, for Hades to embrace you.
 
Mercilessly beats the Beast, you,
No force against him standing.
The conch shells blow again,
Atop the Western hill.
 
The royal army stands firm,
Led by the Empress of West.
War-elephants, cavalry, infantry; all present,
Awaiting their Queen’s express command.
 
The Beast halts his shower of brutality,
Stares determined upon the Empress.
Her army marches forth,
To settle this Age’s final score.
 
The pace quickens of the Empress’ army,
Their cavalry gallops down with vigour.
The pace quickens of the ghoulish army,
All set for Hell’s sacrilege.
 
You, my Lord, find your humungous trumpet,
In the wreckage of your castle,
Makes it massive blow heard to all,
Your final battle cry.
 
The demons and the royals clash,
The Beast takes on the Empress.
So graceful and glorious is she,
Her legends come true to witness.
 
Slices clean the Beast’s legs,
Slices clean his abdomen in upper cut.
The Beast taken aback,
Continues to challenge her glory.
 
Makes their way down, the Empress’ war chariots,
Downhill with their bladed wheels.
Cuts the ghouls in pieces many,
Until the Beast stands solitary.
 
O Red Hill’s King, you
Grab a bow and arrow.
The string pulled with all your strength,
For one last of your move.
 
The Empress knocks down the Beast,
Stabs her blade in his chest.
You, my Lord, fire your arrow,
And blind this raging bull.
 
Drained, you fall incapacitated,
Yet the Beast rises again.
The sky echoes ferocious roars,
Fly down the Royal Winged-Lions of East.
 
Land and prance upon the Beast, they
Gnaw him to his bone.
Their sharp sabres dug in,
More effective than a mortal blade.
 
Chunks of flesh eaten away,
Stands up, the Beast, in a wobbly way.
The Hell’s Serpent constricts from beneath his feet,
Drags him down for his Father’s broth.
 
Lies you, my Lord, within Death’s grasp,
The Empress declares the war won to you.
Peacefully, you fall asleep for eternity,
A smile upon your face.
 
The Empress prays a seat for you in Heaven’s Court,
Takes back your glorious sword as her relic.
Cremates your body upon this war-torn land,
A history to be never subject to oblivion.
 
Comes down from Heaven, the Eternal King,
Down upon the Red Hill.
Annexes your empire to His,
Blesses your soul for afterlife’s journey.
 
Satan looks up at the Eternal King,
Swears vengeance in a soliloquy.
The present’s sunny sky- a canvas,
God smiles and hurls his roaring thunderbolt.

इत्तु से पैग़ाम मेरी ज़िंदगी के नाम।

#kalakaksh #nosuicide #story #kahani #nojoto #nojotohindi 

जरा सुनये एक पते की बात,कहानी नहीं हकीकत हैं मेरे साथ।
कुछ 2,3 साल पूरी बात हैं, जिंदगी जी रहा था खुलकर मैं।
सभी के दिलों पर राज करता था,सभी अपनों के मुख से तारीफ़े अपनी सुना था।
तब सब को मेरा नाम पता था अजय पर कोई ये नहीं जानता था कि ये वो ही अजय हैं जिसकी हम तारीफ़े करते नहीं थकते।
कॉलेज का आखरी साल था तब घर में था कोई ,जो भगवान को प्यारा हो गया। महीने  तक पता ना था कि जिंदगी कैसे चले रही हैं। किसी तरह ख़ुद को संभाल कर ,हिम्मत  की, ज़िंदगी पहले की तरह जीने लगा।
चर्चे हर तरह होने लगें थे मेरे, ज़िन्दगी अच्छी चल रही थी। कॉलेज का आखरी साल खत्म होने वाला था exam सर पर थे। exam से एक महीने पहले अचानक आँखों में दर्द होने लगा,इतना जो सहन नहीं होता था। जब भी थोड़ी सी रोशनी आँखों पर पड़ती ,पानी गंगा की तरह बहने लगता था।
तब बस मुझे अंधेरे से प्यार हो गया,रोशनी मुझे बहुत सताती।
दवाईयाँ हज़ार खा ली पर इत्तु सा भी आराम नहीं, जब तक दवाई का असर है तब तक ठीक, असर खत्म होती ही फिर पहले जैसा।
ऐसा मेरे साथ दो महीने चलता रहा।
ऐसी बीच मैंने exam भी दिया,तब मुझे होश नहीं ,कुछ पता नहीं की मैं हूँ कहाँ।
Exam देनी जाता थी तब ये भी याद नहीं होता थी कि मैं जा कहाँ रहा हूँ और कहाँ पहुँच गया।
किसी तरह exam दिये, exam के 1 महीने बाद मेरी आँखें ख़ुद ठीक हो गयी,जैसे कुछ हुआ ही ना हो।


जब result आया तो देखा कि मेरा एक paper रहा गया। अब एक साल क्या करूँगा? ना जाने कैसे कैसे सवाल आये। एक दम सब से मिलना छूट गया,सारा दिन घर रहने लगा।

तब मैंने paper rechecking का form fill किया था। क्योंकि मुझे पक्का पता था कि मेरी re नहीं आ सकती।
Paper recheck में clear हो जायेगा। एक एक पल एक एक दिन की तरह गुजर रहा था,मानो ज़िन्दगी रुक गयी।   मैं depression में चल गया। मुझे बस ये था कि घर बंध कर नहीं रहना हैं ,करना हैं कुछ बड़ा। पर कैसे?
तब मुझे choching के बारे में पता चला ,मैंने फिर choching पर जाना शुरू किया। वहाँ भी नाम कमाया,मेरी पहचान मेरी कलाकारी थी। जहाँ भी जाता वही मेरी कलाकारी  सब को भाटी।
Choching पर जाते जाते,re-checking का result आया ,दुबारा पेपर देना होगा। बुरा तो लगा पर ...........................।


मैंने फिर कोशिश की ,अच्छे से पेपर की तैयारी की और  पेपर दिया। पेपर ऐसा किया थी कि कोई फेल ना कर सकें।

Choching मेरी एक साल की पूरी होने वाली थी कि उसे से कुछ समय पहले result आ गया । result फेल।
बर्दाश्त नहीं हुआ,ऐसा कैसे हो सकता हैं मैं shok, प्रोफेसर shok, parents shok. सभी ऐसा हो ही नहीं सकता, मैंने पेपर निकलवाया। एक महीने के बाद पेपर आया तो देखा कि पेपर सारा सारी ठीक हैं ।check करने वाले ने बिना गलती के no. कम दे रहे है इतना ही नही आधे पेपर में no. नहीं दिया।  तब भी मैंने कोशिश करना नहीं छोड़ा, कोशिश करता रहा।

मैंने अपने सभी प्रोफेसरो को दिखाया। सब की अलग अलग बात थी, कुछ ने कहा इसने कुछ नहीं होगा पेपर की दुबारा तैयारी करो, कुछ ने कहा कि कई बार टीचर सारे no. एक में दे देते हैं। इन्हीं सब बातों में 15 दिन निकल गया । किसी ने कोई help नहीं की। 

माने तब फिर से re-check के form fill कर दिया। जब re-checking का result आया तो फिर से re। मैं यूनिवर्सिटी गया पापा के साथ ,कई दिनों तक चक्कर लगते रहे। यूनिवर्सिटी में मैंने अपना paper सभी को दिखाया, पर वहाँ सब की बोलती बंद थी। बड़े से बड़े प्रोफेसर को दिखाया सब ने कहा ये पास हैं आराम से ।
जानबुझ कर फेल कर रखा हैं ।इन दिनों मैं इतना टूट गया कि कई बार मरने की कोशिश की,road पर चलते चलते ना जाने कितने बार ऐसा करना चाहा। 
पर
mind में बस एक बात थी कि अगर मैंने आज ऐसा किया तो मेरे माँ-बाप का क्या होगा।
 मैंने कोर्ट केस करना चाहता तो यूनिवर्सिटी वालो ने फाइल दबा दी कहा अब टाइम ज्यादा हो गया, हमनें पहले का सारा रिकॉर्ड खत्म कर दिया।
ये बात मई 2017  की है। हर तरह हाथ पैर मारने के बाद भी वही खड़ा था जहाँ पहले खड़ा था। 
इस के बाद मैं इतना टूट गया था की एक एक पल- एक एक दिन की तरह जा रहा था,फिर एक एक week की तरह ,फिर एक एक month की तरह।
बस मुझे इतना याद रहता थी कि आज मंगलवार हैं आज शनिवार हैं मुझे मंदिर जाना हैं बस इससे ज्यादा कुछ नहीं।
ऐसी बीच एक लड़की भी आए थी मेरी लाइफ में । जो कहती थी कि मैं तुम से प्यार करती हूँ तुम्हारे लिए कुछ भी कर सकती हूँ। उस लड़की ने मेरे करिब आकर मुझे इतना पागल कर दिया थी ,ऐसा कर दिया थी कि मुझे ये लगने लगा था कि अब ऐसी से शादी होगी। पर नियति को कुछ और ही मंजूर था।


नवंबर 2017 को मैंने फिर से exam दिया। इस बार मैंने पहले ही सभी प्रोफेसर को बोल दिया था कि ये पेपर अब आप को clear करवाना है। उन्होंने मेरा पूरी मद्दत की।  तब भी मुझे होश नहीं रहता था motivational video हजारों देखी कोई फर्क नहीं पड़ता था। इन्हीं दिनों  के बीच मैंने mom-dad को कई बार बोला कि मुझे अब नही जीना हैं ,मुझे मार दो। गुस्से में ना जाने कितने बार कहा। फ़िर एक दिन मैंने yayah bhoot wala की poem सुनी अच्छी लगी , मुझे उसे बारे में सब जाना हैं सारी poem सुनी bt मुझे कुछ और भी चाहते था, सुनते सुनते एक दिन मैंने झुमके वाली की poem सुनी । मुझे इतनी अच्छी लगी कि download कर ली। तब मुझे इस लड़की के बारे में सब जाना था। तब मुझे nojoto के बारे में पता चल और मैंने nojoto डाउनलोड कर लिया। ये बात dec.2017 की हैं।
तब कई बार मैं कॉलेज जाता हैं मेरे प्रोफेसर उन्मेष मिश्रा सर और राजल मैम ने मुझे हिम्मत दी कुछ नया शुरु करने की महीने भर के बाद हिम्मत कर के जनवरी में मैंने illusion art bnana start किया। एक के बाद एक art बनाता गया।
और झुमके वाली की हर बात मेरे खुश रहने की वजह बने लगी थी।
उस वक़्त मैंने अपनी खुशी और अपना दर्द लिखा। मेरे हर दर्द पर मरहम का काम सत्यप्रेम सर ने किया। मेरी हर  nojoto स्टोर जो मैं फेसबुक पर add करता था तब हमेशा msg कर तारिफ करते थे।
और मैं sir को कहता ये सच हैं।
खुद को संभाल ही लिया था कि मुझे पता कि मैं जिस पर आँख बंद कर के विश्वास कर रहा था ,जिससे मैं शादी करना चाहता था उसने ही मुझे धोखा दिया। ये बात मुझे पता चली, सब अपनी आँखों से देखा 12 feb.2018 को । दिल करा की अभी इसको मार दूँ, दो चार थप्पड़ लगाऊ। बहुत ज्यादा गुस्सा आया था पर मैंने ख़ुद को संभाला ,उस वहीँ छोड़ दिया ,कुछ नही कहा उसे। जो हुआ वो सब मैंने अपने खास friends को बताई उन्होंने उसे बात की तब भी अपनी गलती ना देख कर,
मुझे ग़लत और  खुद को सही बनाने लगी और मेरे दोस्तों के सामने मेरे हजार कमियां इस तरह गिनवाए जैसे मैं किसी का खून किया हो,किसी का बलात्कार किया हो। तब दोस्त ने बस एक बात कही मुझे ये की वो तेरे लायक नहीं। मैं खुद को सम्भाल नहीं पा रहा था। 14 feb.2018 को ही मैंने इस बारे में मैंने अपनी राजल mam से बात की जो हिंदी department की h.o.d हैं। उन्होंने मेरा Brain wosh किया। तब याद तो मिट गई पर feeling मुझे बहुत सताती थी।

तब मेरी help सत्यप्रेम sir, love भाई और अनुष्का मैम ने की।
 उसका दिया सब कुछ खत्म कर दिया। पर जनवरी से ही धीरे धीरे मेरे खुश रहने की वजह झुमके वाली बने लगी थी। 15 feb 2018 से लगातार झुमके वाली पर लिखता रहा और साथ illusion art बनाता रहा। march में होली वाले दिन पहले बार मेरी मेरी झुमके वाली से बात हुई।उस दिन मैं बहुत खुश था। अपनी खुशी हर तरह बाँट रहा था। किसी तरह मैं ठीक हुआ। nojoto family का साथ मिला।  पर किस्मत कुछ और चाहती था। exam का result आया फिर से re आई। फिर से पेपर निकलवाने हैं, फिर से सब को दिखाया,फिर से paper दुबारा चेक के लिए form fill किया । बस अब result का इंतज़ार हैं। 
आज भी लड़ रहा हूँ क़िस्मत से, देखना है कब देगी ये क़िस्मत साथ मेरा।

इत्तु से पैग़ाम मेरी ज़िंदगी के नाम।

#kalakaksh #NoSuicide #story #kahani #Nojoto #nojotohindi

जरा सुनये एक पते की बात,कहानी नहीं हकीकत हैं मेरे साथ।
कुछ 2,3 साल पूरी बात हैं, जिंदगी जी रहा था खुलकर मैं।
सभी के दिलों पर राज करता था,सभी अपनों के मुख से तारीफ़े अपनी सुना था।
तब सब को मेरा नाम पता था अजय पर कोई ये नहीं जानता था कि ये वो ही अजय हैं जिसकी हम तारीफ़े करते नहीं थकते।
कॉलेज का आखरी साल था तब घर में था कोई ,जो भगवान को प्यारा हो गया। महीने तक पता ना था कि जिंदगी कैसे चले रही हैं। किसी तरह ख़ुद को संभाल कर ,हिम्मत की, ज़िंदगी पहले की तरह जीने लगा।
चर्चे हर तरह होने लगें थे मेरे, ज़िन्दगी अच्छी चल रही थी। कॉलेज का आखरी साल खत्म होने वाला था exam सर पर थे। exam से एक महीने पहले अचानक आँखों में दर्द होने लगा,इतना जो सहन नहीं होता था। जब भी थोड़ी सी रोशनी आँखों पर पड़ती ,पानी गंगा की तरह बहने लगता था।
तब बस मुझे अंधेरे से प्यार हो गया,रोशनी मुझे बहुत सताती।
दवाईयाँ हज़ार खा ली पर इत्तु सा भी आराम नहीं, जब तक दवाई का असर है तब तक ठीक, असर खत्म होती ही फिर पहले जैसा।
ऐसा मेरे साथ दो महीने चलता रहा।
ऐसी बीच मैंने exam भी दिया,तब मुझे होश नहीं ,कुछ पता नहीं की मैं हूँ कहाँ।
Exam देनी जाता थी तब ये भी याद नहीं होता थी कि मैं जा कहाँ रहा हूँ और कहाँ पहुँच गया।
किसी तरह exam दिये, exam के 1 महीने बाद मेरी आँखें ख़ुद ठीक हो गयी,जैसे कुछ हुआ ही ना हो।


जब result आया तो देखा कि मेरा एक paper रहा गया। अब एक साल क्या करूँगा? ना जाने कैसे कैसे सवाल आये। एक दम सब से मिलना छूट गया,सारा दिन घर रहने लगा।

तब मैंने paper rechecking का form fill किया था। क्योंकि मुझे पक्का पता था कि मेरी re नहीं आ सकती।
Paper recheck में clear हो जायेगा। एक एक पल एक एक दिन की तरह गुजर रहा था,मानो ज़िन्दगी रुक गयी। मैं depression में चल गया। मुझे बस ये था कि घर बंध कर नहीं रहना हैं ,करना हैं कुछ बड़ा। पर कैसे?
तब मुझे choching के बारे में पता चला ,मैंने फिर choching पर जाना शुरू किया। वहाँ भी नाम कमाया,मेरी पहचान मेरी कलाकारी थी। जहाँ भी जाता वही मेरी कलाकारी सब को भाटी।
Choching पर जाते जाते,re-checking का result आया ,दुबारा पेपर देना होगा। बुरा तो लगा पर ...........................।


मैंने फिर कोशिश की ,अच्छे से पेपर की तैयारी की और पेपर दिया। पेपर ऐसा किया थी कि कोई फेल ना कर सकें।

Choching मेरी एक साल की पूरी होने वाली थी कि उसे से कुछ समय पहले result आ गया । result फेल।
बर्दाश्त नहीं हुआ,ऐसा कैसे हो सकता हैं मैं shok, प्रोफेसर shok, parents shok. सभी ऐसा हो ही नहीं सकता, मैंने पेपर निकलवाया। एक महीने के बाद पेपर आया तो देखा कि पेपर सारा सारी ठीक हैं ।check करने वाले ने बिना गलती के no. कम दे रहे है इतना ही नही आधे पेपर में no. नहीं दिया। तब भी मैंने कोशिश करना नहीं छोड़ा, कोशिश करता रहा।

मैंने अपने सभी प्रोफेसरो को दिखाया। सब की अलग अलग बात थी, कुछ ने कहा इसने कुछ नहीं होगा पेपर की दुबारा तैयारी करो, कुछ ने कहा कि कई बार टीचर सारे no. एक में दे देते हैं। इन्हीं सब बातों में 15 दिन निकल गया । किसी ने कोई help नहीं की।

माने तब फिर से re-check के form fill कर दिया। जब re-checking का result आया तो फिर से re। मैं यूनिवर्सिटी गया पापा के साथ ,कई दिनों तक चक्कर लगते रहे। यूनिवर्सिटी में मैंने अपना paper सभी को दिखाया, पर वहाँ सब की बोलती बंद थी। बड़े से बड़े प्रोफेसर को दिखाया सब ने कहा ये पास हैं आराम से ।
जानबुझ कर फेल कर रखा हैं ।इन दिनों मैं इतना टूट गया कि कई बार मरने की कोशिश की,road पर चलते चलते ना जाने कितने बार ऐसा करना चाहा।
पर
mind में बस एक बात थी कि अगर मैंने आज ऐसा किया तो मेरे माँ-बाप का क्या होगा।
मैंने कोर्ट केस करना चाहता तो यूनिवर्सिटी वालो ने फाइल दबा दी कहा अब टाइम ज्यादा हो गया, हमनें पहले का सारा रिकॉर्ड खत्म कर दिया।
ये बात मई 2017 की है। हर तरह हाथ पैर मारने के बाद भी वही खड़ा था जहाँ पहले खड़ा था।
इस के बाद मैं इतना टूट गया था की एक एक पल- एक एक दिन की तरह जा रहा था,फिर एक एक week की तरह ,फिर एक एक month की तरह।
बस मुझे इतना याद रहता थी कि आज मंगलवार हैं आज शनिवार हैं मुझे मंदिर जाना हैं बस इससे ज्यादा कुछ नहीं।
ऐसी बीच एक लड़की भी आए थी मेरी लाइफ में । जो कहती थी कि मैं तुम से प्यार करती हूँ तुम्हारे लिए कुछ भी कर सकती हूँ। उस लड़की ने मेरे करिब आकर मुझे इतना पागल कर दिया थी ,ऐसा कर दिया थी कि मुझे ये लगने लगा था कि अब ऐसी से शादी होगी। पर नियति को कुछ और ही मंजूर था।


नवंबर 2017 को मैंने फिर से exam दिया। इस बार मैंने पहले ही सभी प्रोफेसर को बोल दिया था कि ये पेपर अब आप को clear करवाना है। उन्होंने मेरा पूरी मद्दत की। तब भी मुझे होश नहीं रहता था motivational video हजारों देखी कोई फर्क नहीं पड़ता था। इन्हीं दिनों के बीच मैंने mom-dad को कई बार बोला कि मुझे अब नही जीना हैं ,मुझे मार दो। गुस्से में ना जाने कितने बार कहा। फ़िर एक दिन मैंने yayah bhoot wala की poem सुनी अच्छी लगी , मुझे उसे बारे में सब जाना हैं सारी poem सुनी bt मुझे कुछ और भी चाहते था, सुनते सुनते एक दिन मैंने झुमके वाली की poem सुनी । मुझे इतनी अच्छी लगी कि download कर ली। तब मुझे इस लड़की के बारे में सब जाना था। तब मुझे nojoto के बारे में पता चल और मैंने nojoto डाउनलोड कर लिया। ये बात dec.2017 की हैं।
तब कई बार मैं कॉलेज जाता हैं मेरे प्रोफेसर उन्मेष मिश्रा सर और राजल मैम ने मुझे हिम्मत दी कुछ नया शुरु करने की महीने भर के बाद हिम्मत कर के जनवरी में मैंने illusion art bnana start किया। एक के बाद एक art बनाता गया।
और झुमके वाली की हर बात मेरे खुश रहने की वजह बने लगी थी।
उस वक़्त मैंने अपनी खुशी और अपना दर्द लिखा। मेरे हर दर्द पर मरहम का काम सत्यप्रेम सर ने किया। मेरी हर nojoto स्टोर जो मैं फेसबुक पर add करता था तब हमेशा msg कर तारिफ करते थे।
और मैं sir को कहता ये सच हैं।
खुद को संभाल ही लिया था कि मुझे पता कि मैं जिस पर आँख बंद कर के विश्वास कर रहा था ,जिससे मैं शादी करना चाहता था उसने ही मुझे धोखा दिया। ये बात मुझे पता चली, सब अपनी आँखों से देखा 12 feb.2018 को । दिल करा की अभी इसको मार दूँ, दो चार थप्पड़ लगाऊ। बहुत ज्यादा गुस्सा आया था पर मैंने ख़ुद को संभाला ,उस वहीँ छोड़ दिया ,कुछ नही कहा उसे। जो हुआ वो सब मैंने अपने खास friends को बताई उन्होंने उसे बात की तब भी अपनी गलती ना देख कर,

50 Healthy Resolutions That Aren't Losing Weight
It’s fair to say that 2016 wasn’t a popular year (to put it mildly).
But while we may be ready to embrace 2017 with open arms, there’s one mistake many of us will probably bring into the New Year: focusing on the wrong resolution.
If data published in 2015 is any indication, many of us will pledge to lose weight. However, the problem with focusing solely on the scale is that it isn’t necessarily beneficial or indicative of our well-being. Not to mention the fact that concentrating on a pants size may make us ignore all the other aspects of wellness (like self-esteem or empathy, for example).
Of course, if losing weight is imperative to your physical health, it’s necessary to complete those goals and follow a plan outlined by a doctor. But if you’re searching for a way to prioritize wellness, there are additional options.
We’ve rounded up some healthy resolutions that have nothing to do with dropping pounds. Check them out below and then vow to make 2017 your best year yet.

1. Sleep more.
Commit to those eight hours. Proper shuteye is linked to better mental health and a lower risk for physical health conditions.
2. Cut back on sugar.
It’s difficult but it can be life changing if you pull it off. Here are a few tips on how to give it up.
3. Limit sodium intake.
Dietary guidelines recommend consuming no more than 2,300 milligrams per day (but the average American may consume more than 3,400 milligrams in a day ― yikes!). Too much sodium is linked to heart disease, high blood pressure and more.
4. Start meditating.
The benefits of a meditation practice are boundless, from improved mental health to better concentration to a lower risk for disease.
5. Pick up crafting.
Experts say activities like knitting can ease anxiety and put you in a meditative state. And you get a scarf in the process? Score.
6. Spend time alone.
Introverts are onto something. There’s power in a little “me time.”
7. Plan a trip.
You’ll boost your mood instantly. Research suggests planning a vacation can increase happiness ― and just think, you’ll have an adventurous city or a white sand beach to look forward to after you book it.
8. Keep a journal.
This could be a book that gives you prompts or just an empty place to scribble out your frustrations. Studies show journaling can be cathartic for your mental health.
9. Go for strolls more often.
It’s actually a really healthy exercise, according to science. Hit the pavement.
10. Cut back on complaining.
Negative thought patterns can increase stress levels. Try a mindful experiment where when you catch yourself complaining ― or thinking negatively ― you counteract it with something positive. Here’s a little inspiration to get started.


11. Give up diet soda.

Let’s face it: The zero-calorie coke alternative is not doing anyone any favors. It has the potential to hurt your health and studies have found it doesn’t help with losing weight.
12. Compliment someone once a day.
And not just on their appearance. Genuine compliments can go a long way for both you and the other person.
13. Practice gratitude.
Studies suggest that gratitude can improve overall well-being and may even boost physical health. Try keeping score of what you appreciate every day. Need some ideas to get started? Here are 100.
14. Go to therapy.
Therapy can be an incredibly useful tool for self discovery or as a way to work out life’s challenges. If you’re dealing with a particularly rough period ― or just want to know more about your inner world ― mental health professionals can help.
15. Volunteer regularly.
Donating your time to people or an organization in need can do a world of good. And if you needed more reason: Research shows volunteering can improve your health. It may also increase your happiness levels thanks to a circular effect. Kindness makes you happy, and happiness makes you kind.
16. Drink more water.
Forget what you were told about drinking eight glasses a day and aim for hydration instead. Here’s a handy guide to know when you’re actually feeling parched (it might be happening sooner than you realize).
17. Cook at home more frequently.
You’ll end up getting healthier in the process. Research says homemade meals can help you skip out on excess calories.
18. Commit to a strength-training routine.
Building muscle can help protect you against injury and even sharpen your cognitive skills. Start small ― even just using your body weight ― and increase as you get stronger.
19. Talk to more strangers.
It pays to make a little eye contact. Research shows smiling at someone you don’t know could help increase feelings of social connection.
20. Say “no” more often.
Burnout is real and it can happen in a blink of an eye. Make sure you’re prioritizing yourself and not saying “yes” to everything because it feels like an obligation. Self care isn’t selfish.


21. Handwrite letters instead of emailing people.

Make an effort to communicate via snail mail this year. Handwritten correspondence is a lost art form ― but there are real benefits to putting pen to paper, from better creativity to a smaller risk of multitasking.
22. Schedule walking meetings once a week.
You’ll get far more out of it than if you were holed up in the office. And that added physical activity may just get your creativity flowing.
23. Use all of your vacation days.
Those who are lucky enough to get vacation time often don’t put it to use. A recent survey found that 32 percent of people used zero of their allocated days last year. But taking a break is super important for your well-being. Don’t feel like taking a vacation? Try a mental health day, instead.
24. Call your family more often.
Chances are they’d love to hear from you and you can benefit from it, too. Research shows calling loved ones like your mom can ease stress.
25. Cut back on material spending.
Money does not buy happiness, according to science. Take your hard-earned cash and use it for an experience instead. There’s evidence it will bring you more joy.
26. Try team sports.
The camaraderie is great and you’ll pick up a new hobby in the process. Plus, it’s ― you guessed it ― good for your mental health.
27. Learn a language.
Say “hola” or “bonjour” to a new life skill. Research even supports the theory that it’ll boost your brain.
28. Forgive someone.
Anger and resentment is like holding onto internal poison and can even harm your physical health. Life’s too short to not move on.
29. Make regular doctors’ appointments.
Research shows that ― for the most part ― it’s okay to forgo annual physicals if you’re generally healthy individual. But that doesn’t mean throw caution to the wind and ignore your body. If you’re sick or something is off, see a doctor. That includes specialists like dermatologists and dentists.
30. Donate to an important cause.
That same kindness feedback loop that happens when you volunteer may also apply in this case as well. Here’s a list of organizations that may need your help right now, in particular.

31. Read one book a month.
Research shows reading can boost empathy and emotional intelligence. If you’re committed to diving into multiple novels this year, check out this list of tips and benefits that will help keep you motivated.
32. Bring your lunch to work every day.
Trust us, your wallet will thank you. Take a look at this breakdown to see just how much you’ll save.
33. Practice self-acceptance.
It’s actually a key to a happier life but it’s a habit people rarely practice. Make your internal dialogue as kind as it would be if you were talking to your best friend.
34. Say a mantra every day.
Mantras can keep you grounded in the moment, allowing you to reap the rewards of mindfulness, and they could help you actually believe what you’re saying after a while. (Yes, you are beautiful. And yes, you should repeat that to yourself every day if that’s what you need.)
35. Wear sunscreen.
Skin cancer is no joke. Luckily, there are tons of moisturizers that contain a little SPF.
36. Eat more (good!) carbohydrates.
Psst, the healthiest people in the world actually consume a lot of carbs. (Yep, you read that correctly.) Check out how to incorporate more of these important nutrients into your diet.
37. Cut back on alcohol.
Sure, a little is fine (who doesn’t love a good glass of Pinot Grigio?). But the negatives outweigh the positives in the long term in this case.
38. Go outside more often.
Not only does it improve your mood, you get the added perks of exercise. Win-win.
39. Give up the snooze button.
Seriously, you’ll feel much better for it. And maybe you’ll finally become one of those successful morning people.
40. Floss regularly.
There’s a reason your dentist nags you about that tiny string. Clearing your gums of bacteria is necessary for oral health, so do what you can to make sure they’re in good condition.

41. Make your bed every day.

No act of organization is too small. And it may make you happier.
42. Don’t use your smartphone before bed.
The type of light that’s emitted from screens can disrupt your sleep and keep you awake longer. Try ditching your device at least 30 minutes before you shut your eyes.
43. Do an activity outside of your comfort zone.
There’s a whole life to discover on the other side of your routine. Not to mention the fact that doing something different may boost creativity.
44. Pick a theme for the year.
If you’re starting to feel like this whole “resolution” thing isn’t for you, try sticking to a theme instead. Instead of picking a goal, pick a word you want to abide by for 2017. It could be “brave” or “confident” or “compassionate.” Whatever you want to start doing ― or being ― more of.
45. Fix your posture.
Straightening up is not only an instant confidence booster, it can also prevent back problems and reduce stress. Your future self may just thank you.
46. Sign up for a race.
There’s something satisfying about crossing a real finish line. Running comes with a lot of physical and mental health perks, from lower risk of disease to improved mood. Why not celebrate a running routine with a tangible medal of your accomplishments?
47. Marie Kondo your space.
Marie Kondo, author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, is the champion of the tidying method where you only keep items that bring you joy. Since then, the trend has gained traction and for a good reason. Not only does it keep your home clutter-free, there’s also a psychological health component to focusing on the materials that make you happy.
48. Cut back on social media.
Research shows that constant scrolling through a newsfeed can lead to social comparison, or the need to stack your life up against someone else’s. This can then lead to depressive symptoms. Take a step back from all of it and live your life based on how you feel ― not on how cool it’s supposed to look with a filter.
49. Spend time with people who think differently than you do.
Empathy, or the ability to walk in another’s shoes, is the foundation for a lot of positive perks. The more you expand yourself and open your eyes to different perspectives, the more open minded you become.
50. Love yourself.
Because you’re all you’ve got ― no matter what

32 important life lessons from 32 years
Sometimes so many questions accumulate in your head that you just have to find a way to release them. Olesya Novikova, a writer, journalist, blogger, and traveller, recently shared the life lessons which she has discovered over the 32 years of her life so far.Everyone has a fear. Even beautiful, talented, smart, and lucky people. We’re scared to start something new, to go out of our comfort zone, to take a risk, to do something that we never done before. We fear for our families, for our jobs, for our life, and for many other things as well. Fear will always exist. No matter how much experience, confidence, recognition, money or talent you have, you’ll be scared to a greater or lesser degree each time when you conquer a new height or do something new. But this is fine. This means you’re still alive. You have to keep going on. Go through and past your fear, and don’t try to get rid of it.
Changes will keep happening. Stability is illusory. We’re constantly on the move. We keep changing — outwardly and inwardly, and these processes don’t stop even for a second. A sane person doesn’t have the chance to pose the question — to change or not to change? He or she can only answer a different one: ’’Do I have control over these changes that are taking place, and to what extent?’’
’’Quickly’’ means ’’slowly, but without interruption.’’ There’s no need to do something quickly, intensely, or forcefully. Just do it regularly. The most important thing is to keep the rhythm going. Do it little by little, but constantly. And after some time, if you look at it from the outside, it will look like you did it quickly and efficiently.
Create more than you consume.Otherwise, you’ll be left with only a hopeless consumer lifestyle leading to no meaningful conclusion. ’’Everything is good, but there’s nothing good’’. A person must always create something, willingly and with love. This is a formula for good mental health. Curiously, this is the only way to enjoy the pleasure of consumption that won’t destroy the pleasure itself. You can consider this process as a spiritual version of having good metabolism.
Today’’ is what you did and thought yesterday, and ’’tomorrow’’ is what you do and think today. Repeat this phrase like a mantra for as long as you realize that no one else is responsible for the problems you come up against.
There are no guarantees at all. This is a basic rule of the universe which you need to take into account when making all your decisions and preparing all your plans.
The era of sacred knowledge is over.Now, it’s the era of informational hygiene. For several years already, knowledge hasn’t helped any of us achieve anything or attain a meaningful existence. The internet has devalued knowledge. The ability to concentrate on a given task without losing interest is now more important. And this skill is directly affected by the storm of information battering your mind at any given moment. The more verbal ’’garbage’’ is around, the weaker your concentration becomes. The more the thoughts of others circulate in your mind, the harder it is to hear your own voice. The online stream of information weakens your ability to discover yourself.
Joy and pleasure are not the same thing. We never experience real joy while eating a chocolate cake, drinking a glass of wine or smoking a cigarette. We don’t experience joy while buying new shoes or perfume. Let’s call things by their proper names — in these cases, we just get pleasure. And that’s another story. By its nature this feeling is very short-lived, and it’s inextricably linked to further dissatisfaction, boredom, satiety, and the desire for a new portion of pleasure. Don’t be afraid to give up pleasures, be afraid not to experience real joy.Suffering exists. Buddha was right after all. 
Suffering exists. Everybody suffers. Both those who have nothing and those who have everything. Those who don’t suffer in the present will make the transition to a state of pain at a later date. Maybe because of the falling currency or because of a terrorist attack. Maybe because of finding out that someone doesn’t love him or her anymore. Or they’ll get upset because they don’t get a reply to a message they sent, or they don’t earn enough money, or for literally any other reason you can think of. Suffering exists. We will always find a reason to suffer. Just accept it, and do your best to ignore it.
Not everyone can be happy. Can everyone be happy? Yes, sure! But only in theory. In practice, only those who have disciplined their minds can be consistently happy, calm, balanced, and benevolent. Only those whose minds are trained and capable of not worrying about everything around them. Only those who manage to retain a sense of joy not only in agreeable circumstances but also in unpleasant situations. Otherwise, there’s an endless stream of events which will evoke only pain, irritation, and anxiety. And some situations are more serious than others. A person who reacts emotionally to every little incident can never be happy inside.
Joy means retaining a balance in your mind. If somebody had told me this five years ago, I would never have believed it. When you dream all day and night of finding your one true love, creating a family, a well-paid job, an opportunity to work for yourself, to travelk, you think that you know what joy is. At least, what your own joy is. Of course, you can’t always be satisfied with everything. Sometimes you suffer. And this is fine. The most important thing is that you know what to strive for. Looking at your dreams, you realize where your sense of enduring joy comes from. Joy is a state of complete peace of mind, which is achieved by overcoming the blind, automatic reactions of the mind to events. Practising a form of deep meditation is perhaps the only healthy way to discover and attain this state true maturity.
Know the importance of fruit and its physical effects. Fruit is not acidic, it’s alkaline. To divert into science for a second, all kinds of ripe fruit and vegetables have an alkaline reaction, helping to neutralise excess acid in your body. Things like meat, sugar, fat and dairy products have the opposite effect. Not many people know this — try googling it!
’’My body itself knows what is better for it’’ is one of the most insidious mind traps. An alcoholic’s body wants to drink; a smoker’s body dreams of a cigarette; our bodies are always hungry for chocolate and fries. How can the body know what is better? Our minds live by automatic responses that don’t let us make necessary changes; our bodies obey our habits and our chaotic impulses.
Food affects not only your body but also your mind. In the same way that alcohol significantly changes your consciousness, blunting it, certain kinds of food can have a similar effect, but it’s less pronounced and more unconscious. Food can slow down and refocus your thinking process. Moreover, it can weaken your control, your power of awareness, and your clarity of perception. A slightly ’’blurred’’ state of mind becomes a norm for you, so you forget what lightness and clarity actually mean. The most ’’clean’’ kinds of food are fresh fruit, vegetables, cereals, and that which is cooked with a minimum amount of oil, spices, and salt.
You need money only in order not to think about money. Money doesn’t solve the central question of humanity. It don’t make people happy. But the opportunity not to think about money, at least in everyday life, significantly releases energy for something else.
We have more similarities than differences. The value of personal uniqueness is greatly exaggerated. All the answers and solutions have already existed for a long time. In focusing on your own uniqueness, you don’t have the chance to push away your ego and perceive reality with all its real answers.
The best way to stop an addiction is not to have access to the thing your addicted to, at all. It’s impossible to drink one glass of wine if you’re an alcoholic. If you’re trying to quit smoking, you can’t still have a smoke from time to time. You’ll be constantly in a state of mental torture. You’ll go up and down. You’ll always have disruptions. This rule is immutable for all kinds of addiction.
You will never be fully prepared for change. We are never fully prepared for twists of fate or changes. There is always a strong ’’but...’’ and the temptation to postpone changes until a more favorable time. There is no point waiting for complete internal harmony. You just need to make a decision, relying on the thought that ’’it’s high time’’ to get things done.
Life is a book where the first chapters weren’t written by you. Sometimes even the subsequent chapters aren’t either. We’re composed of beliefs and we make up models of the world around us. And this world isn’t just abstract. It’s a concrete office, a house, a street — the places where we spend our life. It’s our friends, colleagues, parents, and the salespeople whom we meet every evening. It’s a news feed on social networks and so-called Facebook friends. We automatically absorb the opinions, positions, and viewpoints of other people. We imbibe them along with the air, regardless of whether we agree with them or not. And when we don’t agree, it’s also a moment of automatic denial. In childhood, this process was completely out of our control. The essence of your personality was forged by other people, and parental input (if it was ever there) wasn’t dominant in this. What and who you consider yourself to be and what you should be afraid to lose, according to some psychologists, is just a mosaic of your environment. There is nothing to lose. Isn’t that great news? At least in that case, you can redraw everything however you like.
A result is a bunch of attempts at something. It’s not a single well-aimed shot. And it’s certainly not just good fortune.
What helped you at one stage may one day prevent you from going on to the next stage. Sometimes it’s important to give up that which has helped you in the past. Here’s an example: rules for small businesses don’t work for huge corporations. It’s impossible to grow without giving up some of the rules, even if they helped you to grow up yesterday. This also applies to your personality, a person’s values, and their plans.
Outside of your comfort zone, there is a discomfort zone. And there’s no flowers and chocolates there. But you have to go there anyway if you want to achieve something.
There is no life without a purpose. The only question is whether you create these purposes yourself or leave it to your instincts to decide them for you.
Laziness doesn’t exist. There are unloved activities, there’s such a thing as a lack of energy and a lack of wide vision and ability to be excited about new perspectives. But there is no such thing as laziness.
You can’t find yourself; you can only create yourself. There is nothing and nobody to look for. You’re always here, in the here and now. Your path is what you have under your feet right now, nothing more — it’s not anywhere else. You can only distinguish between the right path and the wrong one by using your awareness. You pave small, but definite goals. If these goals are determined by others, or if they chaotically grow as a result of duty, it’s not your path. It’s just a bunch of separate episodes of your life.
You don’t need alcohol. At all.
Your unrealized potential will hurt you one day. It’s useless to hide this fact and instead stick inside your comfort zone. As they say, you are responsible for the talent that has been entrusted to you.
Banks should pay you, but not vice versa. This is the only possible way to be financially healthy. Never, never, never buy anything that you haven’t earned enough to pay for. Never. Especially if you want something big. We pay banks not only our money but also our energy. As a result, you don’t have the energy to take that risk and make adventurous plans. Breaking out from such a situation once that decision is taken is hardly going to be possible.
You need to learn how to work under pressure, and how to relax. Every movement requires exertion. If you make this move reluctantly and out of necessity, you’ll spend twice as much energy. In this case, you spend some energy on the physical and mental effort, and the mental stress saps the rest of your energy. That’s why you need to learn how to deal with stress when it appears and how to love it. If you сan put yourself under strain voluntarily, considering it only something positive, you’ll expend much less energy. The second part of success is the ability to relax, to accept things as they are, to let go of your expectations. You can’t move on if you only know how to be stressed, but don’t know how to relax.
’’Yes’’ and ’’no’’ are two answers that you need to learn as soon as possible.Learn how to say ’’yes’’ to situations and people in spite of the absence of guarantees, internal readiness, and changing circumstances. Learn how to say ’’no’’ first of all to yourself: to your weaknesses, your fears, and your selfishness. And only much later, learn how to say ’’no’’ to others.
There’s a difference between great things and good things. The latter you forget about, the former you don’t. A truly creative person is different from someone who simply does his job well. Creators put their tasks above themselves, dissolving their egos in the process. They work consciously and with love, not because of a sense of duty or a lack of choice. A marketer can be a true musician while a proper musician can be just a mediocre craftsman for their entire life.
Every sign that you meet on your way through life can be interpreted in at least three different ways. 1. Maybe this is a real sign! 2. Perhaps there are no signs at all. 3. Maybe this is a test. Maybe fate just attempted to knock you out of your stride by testing the sincerity of your intentions and your decisions.
