Stress elimination

No comments
I recall my attempt to talk on the topic "deepen your root and broaden your vision" where I was talking about why we should learn new things but without leaving our religion and culture.
During the event, I was asked about the slogan of Art of living, where it is said stress free and violence free society is the goal. I could not prove by example that stress could be eliminated. Frankly speaking, at that time I didn't even know meaning of stress but i could tell through my experience that after I started meditating, I had eliminated my stress. But putting experience into speech is a tough job.

Today let's start with the defination of stress. Stress is the difference between reality and your expectation. For example, i have a ticket of a movie of 9 am and i am stuck in traffic jam at the distance of 15 minute by vehicle, I will have 2 options: I can have stress, I can feel bad about the portion I will miss, I can curse traffic system, politicians, government, regret for not leaving early and so on.
Or I can say to myself, ok anyhow some portion is going to be missed so instead of being stressed, i will go and watch the show and then again i will see the missed part online or maybe i don't want to go today, i will buy another ticket and watch the whole movie in the hall.

So stress is a choice and not a phenomenon, and i wonder why do people choose this disease causing thing. We all know stress causes heart disease, asthma and even cancer. For reference you can see the video on the RHS :P

Ok now let's see how just by changing the thinking perception can change the effect of stress, and is it just illusion of stress elimination or is it really possible? 

Do you know a chemical named Oxytocin. It is a chemical released when we hug or kiss loved ones. And surprisingly it is released as a cause of stress! But this chemical has all the positive effects in our body.

So who is the villain in stress! Our villain is named as adrenaline. This hormone is produced in stress, when we fear something. Our day to day life stress is releasing this hormone and this hormone shows symptoms like faster beating of heart and other effects which may eventually cause diseases that sound extremely dangerous. So the trick of stress elimination is letting our body produce oxytocin instead of adrenaline. The thing I am saying is not complete as there are various other factors associated with stress, but I can pretty much say that the stress we have been knowing and think as unavoidable can actually be eliminated. That feeling we don't like can be eliminated and diseases can be avoided.

Oxytocin sometimes is also called bonding hormone and it is also said to be released when we help others. So helping others can also reduce the stress we know. Please watch this beautiful video below to know more in this regard.

Your Home Is in My Heart

Your home is in my heart
My heart is very strong
When you are feeling lonely
I will carry you along

Your home is in my heart
My heart is everywhere
Wherever you may wander
Just know that I am there

Your home is in my heart
My heart is like an ocean
I will rock you while you are sleeping
On wave of sweet devotion


Jano Jano Jano

jano jano jano
khudko pehechano
satya chitta aanand tu hai
ghar laut aao

khudko samjha billi
myau myau karte karte kaha kaha firta

hai tu to sagar
khudko samjha leher
aane do, jaane do
jo bhi hota hine do

aate ho jate ho
jara khudme thehro na
chaplusi chhodke baadshah ban jao na

rishiyoka pukaar hai
ved puranka saar hai
satya chitta aanand tu hai
ghar laut aao

Two different world

No comments
scenario 1:
A family is poor, father has started drinking due to the stress of never having enough money. He comes and beats his wife. Children see this activity everyday. Child goes to school and bullies others. He doesn't know ho to love others as he only knows to imitate what he sees in home. He is dropped from school due to his rough behaviour. Father drinks more due to added tension by his kids. He blames mother for not taking proper care. He now beats wife and children. Child runs from home and end up in street. Poof! a future of nation is ruined. ( Now someone can please tell me, how does drinking and smoking help in stress? you kill yourselves and add more misery to your dear ones.)

Scenario 2: (real story) Today I was in a party organised by a good businessman. There was a huge crowd of people. I was enjoying my food while a women called me. She said,"is there no fan present in the hall? it is so hot in here and my baby is sweating". I pointed towards fan and said "there, it is...please go and stand there with ur child for sometime."
Her reply shocked me, she was drunk and was afraid to stand. She instead requested me to carry her child to fan for some time. The child was easy one and came to me easily. I carried the kid and went in front of fan and stood there for few minutes. Child was more relaxed now and began to show sign of sleepiness. My father had a flight at 9 and i had to get out from the party before 8:30, it was already 8 and I was carrying kid. I had not had my dinner yet. I was little bit worried now, but at the same time, two seats just infront of the fan became vacant, i called the women to sit in that chair. At first she blankly refused and insisted me to sit with child for more time. Then upon much insistence she moved to the seat infront of fan and I went for dinner.
In this scenario, I saw how life of kids in rich family was being ruined due to their parent's carelessness.

In both scenarios, root of problem is drinking. When I ask my friends not to drink, they say I don't know their tension, they don't want to drink but they have to because of tension. Most of them say, it's okay to drink occasionally like they do. And I have seen extreme things people do after getting drunk. 

This blog post has no story, no point, no moral and no spirituality. I am just sick of people who drink. You are pathetic if you drink. I don't hate who drink, I just have sympathy towards you all and hope all of you get some sense. You may have drunk and may not have done anything wrong yet but one day you may commit a big crime while you are intoxicated and that day you all wont have return path or way to improve that. If you want to handle stress learn meditation, using substances is not your medication for stress. Don't try to be your own doctor recommending drinks for your stress.
