Updated: Feb 7




The way in which something is regarded, understood or interpreted.

The world is a gigantic mirror, you look at it bitterly it looks at you back the same way. What matters is, what you give will be what you receive. The amount of hard work done for a job would reflect on the outcome.

The question is, it is easy to say to think positively but how do you manipulate your mind to think positively?

You don’t have to manipulate it to be positive. If you see that the setbacks are a combo package to the success that you receive then it's quite clear for the mind to not worry as it is all part of the play.

Swami Vivekananda, the man who saw the light, the man who delivered a speech in a foreign country in the 1800s, the man whose words are still kept alive.

Swami Vivekananda had numerous take on education, feminism, casteism the ideologies which are still struggling to escape from the claws of prejudice.

His words on success and failure truly make a person wonder if he was God himself.

“The history of the world is the history of a few men who had faith in themselves. That faith calls out the divinity within. You can do anything. You fail only when you do not strive sufficiently to manifest infinite power. As soon as a man or a nation loses faith, death comes.”

The pandemic has us all lose hope and faith as the months go by. People are losing their light, their insights into the joy of life. Life has truly become mundane for those who once lived it excitedly.

There are a set of people who have still not lost hope, the doctors, the scientists, the people in the medical field have never lost hope. They are exerting all faith in the work that they do.

Nobody knows what would happen in the next second but the next second doesn’t have to be necessarily scary, the next second could be when the cure for the virus works out.

Human beings are clever creatures and that’s why we are on top of the chain, we have ventured out on the deepest trenches to the farthest galaxies.

A little faith, trust, and pixie dust ought to make that impossible to possible. We have proved again and again from flying in the air to inventing robots to take care of our houses is not an impossibility but an absolute present.

Now we could have a little faith and trust but what about pixie dust?

Where do we get fairies?

The question of does it exist be latter, the pixie dust is a magical component, right?

What more magical do you need other than your brain? Sure it's chemicals and fluids but the human body is the most complex organism ever living on the planet.

Your ability to comprehend things, to feel one too many emotions in a minute, to invent the machine, to think logically all this and more doesn’t make you wonder if human beings have magic inside them?

You have wisdom within you, to manifest it, to embrace it and listen to it makes the magic work.

“Alcohol is not the answer to all questions”

This saying has gotten so old but has its meaning and intent died?


So why do we still say it?

Once we are intoxicated, it is easy to forget about the despair and the monotonous life that we lead, but what we are forgetting is that the intoxication won’t last forever, the reality will always come back to us like a boomerang.

The more you try to avoid it, the more problems it would pile up. Unless you are living in a dream as in the movie ‘Inception’, you can avoid it as long as you want, and when you wake up its poof! the problem is still there.
