ZEN THINKING: The world doesn’t happen to you—you happen to it.

Source: http://www.zenthinking.net/poetry/the-world-doesnt-happen-to-youyou-happen-to-it

DO check out the original site guys.

The activity of selfing is just that,
it’s an activity.

You actively insert your “self” into everything you perceive,
turning everything into a story about I, me, my and mine.

If you want to end the struggle
that seems to define your entire life,
then simply stop the activity of “me”,
and be free at once.

Just stop your selfing.
Stop creating something out of nothing!

Realize that your struggle isn’t real;
it’s created entirely by you.

Your mind reaches for concepts to attach itself to,
which you then define yourself by,
without even questioning their validity, their source, or their relevance
—without realizing that you’ve attached your entire emotional well-being
onto nothing but an imagined idea that you assume to be true.

You live inside the story you tell yourself,
rather than in reality itself.

You live in a dreamworld,
shaped by your fears and desires,
all of which revolve around your conditioning,
and however you personally prefer to control the nature of reality,
so that it cedes to your every egoic whim.

It must be realized that the stories
you tell yourself about the world are untrue.

You give duration to that which is otherwise short.
In other words, you drag things on, and on, and on.

You refuse to let go of that which has already passed;
this is your suffering.

A dog barks in a nearby yard
—and he’s disturbing “your” peace;
so you proceed to work yourself into an anxious and angry mess.

A spot of coffee is spilled on a freshly pressed shirt
—and the entire world is somehow against “you”;
so you allow a micro-moment to negatively affect your entire day.

You observe a person simply living their life
—and yet “you” become offended by their choice;
so you stomp around and demand that they change their mind,
rather than you simply minding your own.

You demand respect,
yet you give none in return;
you believe everything revolves around you.

But the world doesn’t happen to you;
you happen to it.

You create whatever world
you choose to believe in.

Everything is your own projection.

Observe your habit of selfing;
be free of false imaginings.

The world isn’t what you think.

Ask yourself,
“What am I creating out of nothing?”

No longer suffer
from the erroneous concepts you tell yourself.

Remove your sense of a personal self
out of every experience entirely!

See, without applying any concepts.
Listen, without forming any criticism.

Just be,
without inserting any presupposed ideas
revolving around a personal “me”.

Realize that every moment is Absolute;
it is not relative to anything you imagine.

Experience life;
without wrapping it inside of a concept;
without dividing it with a subjective opinion;
without turning it into a melodramatic tragedy
that’s all about me, me, me.

Just be,
free of “me”.

This is the truth of reality.

Today

15th March

The day is so nice and while I am on my way ,I realize it is 15th March. I try and recall those days when I imagined how would March 2016 be like .It is still the same and now I know that how quickly days pass by.

I am looking and the days are going just like that.We have no control over time and time keeps on teasing us and playing with us.The day is so wonderful and I have no words to describe the feeling at the moment.

Spending quality time with self never felt so nice.Try it .We seldom find time to talk to self and improve our character. I felt the need to do so because I was immature during those past years and I am feeling a change ,a sudden drastic change in me now .i have felt the need to realize my existence and spend some time with self.

Live today as if there is no tomorrow. This saying people have been passing on for generations and then it is true. Cherish and enjoy the moment that is today in which you are living. Who knows what awaits you for tomorrow and you may die.Never keep things for tomorrow.Do them right now and keep on enjoying the gifts that life gives you and embrace the problems you have to face today, tackle them one at a time. Don’t panic and everything will be allright.

Peace

🙂 🙂

Great people

Debating is really a great experience.I was totally null about this debating thing until one of my friends introduced me with debating.At times you may feel like debating is not your thing but you will learn as you go on practising and all.

I got an opportunity to be a part of this wonderful workshop where there was lot of fun and debating too.I felt the hangover for few days and still the memories have not been faded from my memory lane.They still linger over my memory.

I felt like I made good decision being a part of the workshop.We created strong bondings and made memories worth sharing.Despite hectic schedules,we were able to have fun and smile also.That made my day.I had never been among such lovely and friendly people.Even if there were times when I felt demotivated and stressed,I was able to put up a smile and keep up the spirits due to the people there.There were people never failing to motivate the participants and not to forget about the amiable environment created due to the coaches and trainers there.

I love debating and I made a new family through debating.

Peace.

Never Mind

Sometimes when nothing goes just right and worry reigns supreme. When heartache fills the eyes with mist and all things useless seem. Just one thing can drive away the tears that scald and blind. Someone to slip a strong arm ‘round and whisper, “Never mind.” … Continue reading Never Mind
