“Man is literally split in two: he has an awareness of his own splendid uniqueness in that he sticks out of nature with a towering majesty, and yet he goes back into the ground a few feet in order blindly and dumbly to rot and disappear forever” – Ernest Becker
Why is it that when we are ultimately happy, or in love for example, that there is also an element of sadness? It is because we know that at that very point in time it is temporary, we see it’s transience. Should we take the approach of letting go of all things in that case, detachment? Silva argues the opposite and thinks we should instead be trying to extend this moment through our endless creative possibilities as human beings.
“I’m tortured by the idea that everything is temporary and I’m fighting against impermanence. Inspiration is fleeting: it comes and goes. So what do you do with that inspiration? Well if you’re an architect, you create a building. You instantiate that inspiration. The goal of humanity is to instantiate the mind in the world, transform imagination into a tangible thing that’s – at least on a human scale – able to persist despite our own impermanence. With media, and I’m trying to grab these fleeting moments of exaltation, these lightening bolts of meaning that I have when I’m inspired and turn that inspiration into a solid thing that’ll persist post-epiphany.” -Jason Silva

Even Iran and United States are not friends and consider each other threat to each other. Recent visit of Brandon- Humans of New York, to Iran has brought the people of two nations closer, even when diplomatic ties b/w the nation is not working well. The latest post of Humans of New York tells the story of a man whose son gave away apricots behind his back as they walked home from the shop.
The message of the post was so profound even USA President, Barack Obama couldn’t resist himself from commenting on the post. The post was even liked by CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg.
The story from Humans of New York:
“Today’s his tenth birthday. He’s a very emotional young man. He likes to solve other people’s problems. One time when he was five years old, he came with me to the store and we bought two pounds of fresh apricots. I let him carry the bag home. He walked a little bit behind me the entire way. After awhile, I asked him to hand me an apricot. ‘I can’t,’ he said. ‘I’ve given them all away.’ I knew then that I was raising a humanitarian.” (Tabriz, Iran)

“If you can change your mind, you can change your life.
What you believe creates the actual fact.
The greatest revolution of my generation is to discover that
Individuals, by changing their inner attitudes of mind, can change
the outer aspects of their lives.”
– William James
Transform self-sabotage into success. By discovering the positive intent behind a negative behavior or attitude,
you can release tremendous energy and positive commitment. In his outstanding book Sleight Of Mouth:
The Magic Of Conversational Belief Change, master trainer and famous NLP developer Robert Dilts says:
“At some level all behavior is (or at one time was) “positively intended.” It is or was perceived as appropriate given the context in which it was established, from the point of view of the person whose behavior it is. It is easier and more productive to respond to the intention rather than the expression of a problematic behavior. “
Here are the steps to Find Positive Intentions in the whatever you do…
Step #1. Define the problem.
Briefly state the problem with enough detail so that it is clear in your mind. Mind must be clear about what
the exact problem is. It may primarily be a situation, personal problem, or a challenge. Define what meaning you
give to an Unproductive Behavior. Be clear about what behavior is productive. State the reason for the meaning you gave,
why any particular behavior is unproductive as per you. You must be clear about it, with no confusions.
Step #2. Reveal the Underlying Motives
Take a few minutes to relax, breathe deeply and lay back. Now, go inside, imagine your mind has special internal messengers.”
These are parts of your personality, which have characteristic tendencies or habitual behaviors.
Find the part that is responsible for generating the unproductive behavior.
Bring this part into awareness as though it were a complete personality.
Remember that a part is an aspect of you.
A part is like a little personality inside of you. In order to be aligned and successful,
you must not work at cross purposes with yourself. This requires negotiating or working with your parts.
Now imagine that you can do a role playing game with this particular part. Ask the part what it
wanted to have, do or become, through the negative behavior or attitude. What value or benefit it
expects to get from this. Ask directly, “What did you wish for me to accomplish by doing this?”
Take as much time as you need to imagine and listen to the part’s responses.
Step #3. Get to the core motives.
Keep asking “why” and “what” questions to clarify the motives. Recycle each answer into a new question.
Practice questioning until you feel that you have gotten to the core motives. You should identify a
core belief along with the core value and core reasons for the behaviors or attitudes that, at first glance,
seem to be unsupportive of you.
Anchoring is how we get into the right state for what we want to do.
You connect a symbol with the desired state, or resource state. It’s called a resource state, because
you are more resourceful when you are in that state. This is the state when you can
make the best use of the resources you have. Of course, the state must be a good resource state
for what you have in mind. It must be congruent to what you wished to accomplish. If you have
intense confidence and desire for opportunity as a resource state, it would be very
good for a job interview, and maybe not so good for being a grief counselor.
Here’s a Short yet Useful Script that will surely help you to practice Anchoring on your own-self.
Decide what state you want to create an anchor for. For example, perhaps you would like
to anchor a good state for meeting and negotiating. Whatever it is chose one … Move into
third position, as if you are watching your life in a movie. Recall all the times that you felt
some aspect of that state.
Every time you feel some aspect of the desired state, amplify it and expand it.
See yourself in the movie experiencing that state, and let yourself as the observer
feel it as well. (That’s a little different from the usual third position experience.)
Keep doing that until you feel the state intensely …
Each time you think of a time in which you felt some aspect of that state, see what
is most visually positive and compelling. Emphasize those visual elements in the
movie. Hear what is most audibly positive and compelling … Hear any words that
others said or that you could say that are most mentally positive and compelling …
Feel what is most palpably positive and compelling … Feel whatever internal
sensations are most positive and compelling, like feeling very up or expansive … See
yourself now, standing in a nice place,fully feeling that state, and see how you look
in that state–your facial expression, your posture, you can even add cosmic energy
of just the right color streaming into your aura.
Now create a sign with your hand such as an OK sign, one that you would not
do very often, or interlace your fingers in the opposite way from normal, and hold
that position while you imagine moving into first position (directly in the feelings)
with your eyes closed (so there are no distractions from the feeling), and savor the

About a hundred years ago, a man looked at the morning newspaper and to his surprise and horror, read his name in the obituary column. The news papers had reported the death of the wrong person by mistake. His first response was shock. Am I here or there? When he regained his composure, his second thought was to find out what people had said about him.
The obituary read, “Dynamite King Dies.” And also “He was the merchant of death.” This man was the inventor of dynamite and when he read the words “merchant of death,” he asked himself a question, “Is this how I am going to be remembered?” He got in touch with his feelings and decided that this was not the way he wanted to be remembered.
From that day on, he started working toward peace. His name was Alfred Nobel and he is remembered today by the great Nobel Prize. Alfred Nobel 1833-1896 Since 1901, the Nobel Prize has been honoring men and women from all corners of the globe for outstanding achievements in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, and for work in peace.
The foundations for the prize were laid in 1895 when Alfred Nobel wrote his last will, leaving much of his wealth to the establishment of the Nobel Prize Just as Alfred Nobel got in touch with his feelings and redefined his values, we should step back and do the same.
What is your legacy?
How would you like to be remembered?
Will you be spoken well of?
Will you be remembered with love and respect?
Will you be missed? !!!
#Remember:- Your Life is a your message to the world, make sure its Inspiring.
It’s time to take care of you. Live your dream. Do what you know and not what you feel. Listen to what your heart says, listen to what you always asked for. You deserve to live too! You have needs too!
Give yourself a mental break and take time to get centered, grounded and reconnected with your spirit. Allowing your time to be wasted with people who are not serious is not fruitful and it’s stressful. Be with the ones who Inspires you instead of those who stops you.
Staying in a job where you are not appreciated or valued or validated is draining and toxic. They don’t deserve you. Hanging on to a relationship that has been dead a long time ago takes a toll. Finish it off now, take a stand !!! Take a deep breath and tap into the courage to make the tough decision.
Things might be difficult for a while, but don’t underestimate yourself. You are Blessed with huge Potentials. Have Faith in The Almighty and Trust Self. Follow your Intuition, everything is already there for you. All you need do is to trust them have faith in it and open your divine heart to receive it. Intuitions will show you ways to get your desires manifested and believe me these will lead you on the right path if you have faith in your inner self. With this you will experience greatest transformation within yourself.
