People hype so much about meditation in terms of taking a separate time for it, maintaining a posture, eyes closed etc. etc. that it’s almost impossible for them to comprehend that someone can be in a constant state of meditation without doing a specific set of actions and postures for maintaining that state. Meditation is all about deep breathing, clarity of thoughts, and mindfulness. If you are just obsessed with its trendy and fancy part, then you are just a ball of mess with a veil of spirituality over you, which will not serve you or anyone else in the long run.
Meditation, mindfulness, spirituality, soul connection to oneself- They all begin and stay inside of one’s mind.
When you are used to present a good humoured self in front of others, others think that you don’t feel any pain, but, nevertheless, it’s a great way to deal with any kind of pain/injury/wounds. Only the strong ones have this capacity.
People who have the tendency to or the habit of jumping to conclusions often call and categorise themselves as ‘Over-Thinkers‘. I am sorry to break it to you lovely people, but, you are not Over-thinkers; you are actually ‘Under-thinkers‘.
Over-thinking barely has to do with jumping to conclusions without collecting all the sufficient facts of the situation and without considering all the necessary facets of that situation/event. Over-thinkers, in fact, re-consider all the facts and facets of anything despite having readily available conclusions, in front of them, drawn by someone else.
People with vision become more humble when they succeed in the manifestation of their vision as they know how many struggles it took them to reach there. People with useless unhealthy ego become humble only when they fail as they are left with no other choice as they become perplexed or stay stuck in that place having no to little vision about what to do next.
It’s not only a difference between vision and ego. It’s also a difference between dominant types with a vision and submissive types having no vision. The latter ones usually run towards small-term and superficial goals like “I want to be famous”, “I want to earn money”, “I want to be popular” etc. and if you ask them exactly what they want to do and how, they usually have no clear answer. The former ones the those who have a long-term and large scale vision. They do not go behind short-term dopamine boosters. They are more humble when they keep on succeeding as they know that their success is just one of the steps to fulfil their vision, and their long-term vision is not only the self-serving one like those so-called failed humble ones. Even when they fail, they cannot leave their warrior spirit which the latter submissive types with no vision get intimidated by and can’t digest.
Last but not the least, my views seem to be arrogant to every hypocrite who is humble only when he/she is failing or losing, and uber egoistic n never humble when winning.
