Queue

There are some things which we need to do but keep on delaying because either they are nasty or hard to do. We will keep on lying to ourselves and push it away and they keeps on being pushed away, until a critical time comes when it absolutely has to be done. Or, later we would tell “Oh! I could have done that if I tried”, but we did not try.

Three years ago, I needed to submit a form in my last university, and the deadline was in three days. There were only two counters open, and the queue was massive. The sun was shining over the head and it was terribly hot,above 30 deg C. It was a misery to stand on the packed queue, with people pushing each other. There was me and a friend of mine, who went to submit the form “early” before the deadline arrives. The initial and obvious reaction was to go back immediately to our rooms and avoid this queue.

Moral of a story

We all have read the story of the rabbit and the tortoise. The rabbit challenges the tortoise for a race. The overconfident rabbit, knowing that the tortoise is slow, gave a lot of slack and relaxed and fell asleep while the race was on. The tortoise went on slowly but consistently and finished the race before the rabbit did. Moral of the story: Slow but steady wins the race.

I read this story when I was a child, though almost like everyone and every story, I understood it, but did not realize and feel what the actual moral was.

I will first tell the story from the video, then I will tell another small story. Read the rest of this entry »

Whenever you involve yourself with the thing, you discover new aspects of it by noticing minute details and by interpreting them from different perspectives and point of views. The more you get involved you start to discover more detail and get new creative ideas which tempt you to modify and change or create new things and ideas from which you gain more thrill, fun and joy. In this process whatever new you create should feel like an integrated part of yourself. Read the rest of this entry »

A representation of the physical world inside our minds

When we communicate with the external world, what we actually do is communicate inside our mind. For every living and non-living entity in our surrounding we have a corresponding image, of which we may or may not be aware of. This image is formed inside our mind mainly by inspecting the external behaviour of the other entity and complex interactions within different images inside our mind. These images are not static or fixed. They change every moment by reacting and interacting with other images through the complex relationships and communications within themselves in our mind, even when we are not interacting with the corresponding entity in the physical world. Sometimes we can have an image inside our mind which has no corresponding entity in the physical world. Read the rest of this entry »
