“Sameyh to Earth”, keep your feet on the ground it will always be there for you. Being grounded means being one with the earth. A dear friend once taught me how to do walking meditation and since then I consider the soil as part of my soul, my being. I suppose we’re all one in some way or the other, all interconnected. The beauty of this is that we all walk on the same soil treading our own path with our own individual intentions, yet the soil is one. Most of us are on autopilot quickly walking from one step to the next, but what about the one step that can change it all? The one step where you’re actually aware that you’re walking, for me this is new and it feels good. But I often get caught up with running about on autopilot zipping through each step of the day. I intend and demand to fully live my life and be present for each moment possible. I suppose the beginning of that is each step in soil and how I sacrifice the the thought of next moment for the present one. Soil is something to use and muse on.
“That was a great movie”, my sister says. We are driving out of the parking lot and she see’s a champagne desert bar and playfully asks “you want to go?” I jokingly say, “no thanks, but I’ll go for some blue label.” As we take a turn, my head veers to the right and I see a big blue label outside the “Container Store” in Pasadena with the words “work smart” in it. I’m in awe, even though I was joking it became a sign for me to “work smart” in life and to not spend my precious moments of life being unaware even in the slightest bit of intoxication. It made me further realize I want to be aware and present in each moment, doing that takes practice but can pay off when you look back 50 years from now knowing you savored each moment and didn’t let your life just fly by . So I say, work smart then work hard too!
It’s funny how the mind can work if you look at the world through a positive lens, then you’ll read the right page which can take you and keep you on a happy, healthy path if you finish the book with that same lens.
Well here I am, finally sitting down in front of my computer finally blogging. After long deliberation, I’m entering into the social media arena. For many months I’ve been procrastinating by convincing myself it’s not the right time or that someone would take my data. Am I really so popular that anyone would do that or am I afraid of being criticized or am I just another aspiring artist who wants to make his mark in the world or perhaps I’m just lazy? As you can see, there could be a million excuses for my procrastination, but it’s not about making my mark as one of 7 billion global citizens. (Although, I wouldn’t be upset if that happened!) Rather, it’s about forming a haven for happiness and self-progress by sharing whatever I’ve learned, observed and experienced so far and expressing how I’m moving from where I’ve been to where I continue to be. I realized my true intention; I want people to benefit from this blog. So if I don’t try I’ll never know. I hope you find my musings amusing!
Here’s a brief bio. I grew up in the ever expanding city of Corona, California. Both my parents are from India, but I was born here in the “United” States of America. I graduated from UCLA with a Sociology degree. I like writing and have many goals and visions for the world our children will grow up in one day!
This website Happy Humanity!?!, consists of knowledge I’ve gained from over the past 2 years to 20 years or more, since much of my learning comes from an accumulation of my past coupled with my present understanding of it (change can be constant or captured, the choice is yours). This blog will become a free encyclopedia that touches on all facets of life, from life’s start to life’s end and life’s every simple and challenging day in the middle, which is actually life’s magnificence itself. An “absolute” happy, peaceful and Utopian humanity may never be possible, as our imperfection is our beauty. Yet, in order to get to an awakened evolved global society, we have to start with a happier more fulfilled self, deep down under the surface. It starts and ends with the self, all you have is “x” amount of time left in the middle. You may be billionaire Bill Gates or the happy hard working homeless guy cleaning windshields at the gas station, but looking through the clean glass from inside the vehicle beyond the “change” in your pockets is eventually what will transport you to happiness. We all need sustenance but I believe it’s of no value without happiness, health or wealth which comes in many forms.
