Feelings Are Overrated

Have you ever felt that you are living life but there is something missing? It’s not like you are sad or depressed, it’s like something is missing. I feel somewhat like that.

I am Anirban from India and I want to do big things. I am crazy and I like to think. The reason for this blog post is to talk you about phases in life when things feel different even though everything is alright.

Feelings are said to be overrated and I agree. But they are important indicators of what we are doing wrong. And I am a big believer in self-reflection. And I think feelings can help us introspect more effectively.

But I also believe feelings must not come in decision making. I myself fail to live by this idea but I that if I had not listened to my feelings, my life would have been completely different for good. I mean I would not have been able to recognize myself in the mirror.

When I say that I mean feelings play a major role in maintaining a false sense of self. And although it is not true for all situations, I think it is true for more situations.

And that’s why I think the dicotomy between purpose and survival is very confusing. Purpose tends to be emotional and survival tends to be more logical. When I want to make a decision based on thinking through something, I make the mistake of not taking action fast. I mean I tend to ask myself “What’s the purpose behind that?” and then when I start taking action, I am forced by my habits to change my mind to the survival mindset.

I am not perfect and I am trying to figure things out. The easiest way out seems to be just take action. But it’s not easy. As a leader it is important to have fierce belief and a sense of direction but it is not easy to do that when you have collegen and people over your head instructing you to live life their way.

I mean it not easy but I must stay focused.

Right now something feels like it’s missing. Maybe it’s just the mind but I have to take responsibility of that. At the end of the day I am the one who created my life’s circumstances.

I think the thing I want to give to you in this post is that Responsibility is what we must take for everything. Even if it is negative emotions or confusion or other people’s actions, we must take responsibility.

Why Do People Give Up?

The answer to this question that why people give up will be found in this blog post. But before telling you the answer I want to show you an example so that you can understand the answer better.

I love reading books, especially books that have real life practical wisdom, in simple terms Non-fiction books. I have read a few books like The Sedona Method, Think And Grow Rich, The Richest Man In Babylon, The Six Pillars Of Self-Esteem, Mastery, Radical Honesty and many other books. But for every book finished I have 10 more books that I started but did not finish.

The reason why I did not, or more honesty, could not finish was because I gave up. I gave up persisting. And that’s why I did not finish them. There were many “reasons” like negative emotions, stress, underestimation of the efforts, procrastination and a lack of self-awareness.

Most of the books that I bought are really good books and even bestselling books. But they are not something I could make myself complete in the past.

Although I am still figuring it out, I realized that self-awareness is very important for success. This is because the negative emotions can be released if you are self-aware enough.

Also persistence is what makes success possible. There’s a book that I am currently reading and I am at page 196. The book is called “Psychocybernetics”. That book is amazing. But I could not finish it 2 years ago and it was only this month that I started reading. It shows that even if we give up, life offers a second chance and we have a choice to persist or settle for less.

I am writing these blogs because it gives me happiness to document my journey to success of Rs.22500,00,00,000 ruppees in sales in the next 5 years. I don’t know if it’s possible. But it’s my potential and I must aim for my potential. I don’t have a plan. I don’t have the money. I don’t have connections. But I must do it. It’s my duty.

To sum up I think people give up because they are not self-aware enough to persist. I know it’s not simple. You may be thinking what is “self-aware enough to persist” but please bear with me. If you keep following this blog you will understand soon.

In case you are new to this blog, I am Anirban from India. I have an ecommerce business and I have big goals. I am in college and I have friends. I am just like you. But I am not willing to settle for what everyone else are satisfied with.

Thanks for stopping by and reading this blog post. I wish you have a great Christmas eve on 25th December. This year has been a very educational ride without so many adventures. Thanks again. Take care!

Connect The Dots Backward And A Quick Update

This post is an update for 27th November 2020. I am Anirban Saren and I am a college student from an Adivasi community with a history of being bullied and caste discrimination and I want to post an update.

My exams are going on and it will be over on 2nd December 2020. I also posted a video about my T-shirt business. I decided that I will take it to another level. I also realized the importance of constant self-improvement.

It was that day before exams that I was feeling confused for some reason. I felt like I was doing something wrong. I felt like I was making a decision that was bound to be wrong. I was about to quit. I was about to quit college and business and live a life avoiding life.

It was that moment, I don’t remember the exact moment but I heard my intuition say,”You can only connect the dots backwards.” It reminded me of Steve Jobs’ words.

It changed everything for me.

I think the reason why people become depressed and suicidal is because they try to see the future as being effected by the past. The truth is the past and the future have one thing that separated one from the other. “The Present Moment”.

And that’s what I want to tell you in this post. I had this realization and I wanted to share it with you.

Truth Demystified: The Ultimate Mystery

What is the truth? You may have heard it in TV or magazines that there is some truth that exists that is eternal and what not.

But in this blog post I want to dispel all the mystery that exists in this spiritual seeking.

But first I want to explain why I am eligible for this. I have tried meditation for one year, gone deep in it, overdid it and become familiar with different schools of thought in India. I may not be someone who has a big following but I have insight that I invite you to ridicule and debate upon.

So what is this truth matter? Why do people care about it? What is the reason people go crazy for it that they sacrifice their comfortable rich life for living in a cave all alone?

What I am going to tell you is very counter-intuitive but it is true. It is that there is a shift in consciousness when you stop running after “things”. This shift in consciousness is something that cannot be induced. It is something that happpens as a result of stopping running.

So I have told you the mystery behind truth. It is nothing else. Truth/God/Spirit all the same thing. It is that shift in consciousness that creates truth.

Now what do you get when you have that shift in consciousness is something I don’t know much about. Because I am not enlightened. But it is something I feel is important.

Also another important question is how do you stop running after “things”? And the answer is equally confusing. You stop running but stopping running. But if you try to do it, you have already failed.

So I hope you got something out of this blog post. This is something I am deeply passionate about. If you want to know more about this topic then message me in facebook messager (Anirban Saren). Thank you for stopping by.

My Story Of Beliefs

Beliefs : The Earth Is Not A Sphere

Do you hold beliefs like the world is a sphere?

If yes then congrats. You have correctly learnt this belief that is although scientifically proven is still only a belief.

What you need to understand that this belief is not real. It is just a belief, a thought that someone else handed to you.

If you are honest with yourself, you will understand that to really live a full life, you need to disregard beliefs are live from experience.

Experience is more important than beliefs. It is not enough to just belief someone else’s words. For example, if you really distinguish between stuff that you genuinely experienced in life and stuff that you believe, then you will find out that most of what you hold true, is only just a belief.

Watch My Video

So in this video I have shared my story of how I understood that beliefs are not real. Although I said that beliefs are not real, if you believe me in this as well, you are actually believing instead of experiencing. So just watch it and think and experiment with it instead of believing it.

Watch the video and comment what you think about beliefs.

They are false, not real, even if they are scientifically backed, if you don’t experience its truth then it is still just a figment of your imagination, a belief.

What Are Beliefs?

Belief is a strong thought pattern that has emotional charge to it and it governs your worldview, actions, emotions, thoughts, speech, relations.

Most self-help schools think that changing your beliefs is enough to achieve success, but they don’t tell you that the happiness that you truly want cannot be had by changing your beliefs but by being present and annihilating them. It is also common for people to fight over their ideologies and dogma because they are personally identified with them. They think their beliefs are the truth. Most of the time they are about God. Although most people don’t have an experience of God, they will go to great heights to defend their ideas about God. But that just shows how identified they are with their ideas. They also consider them to be the truth.

The solution is not to fight with counter beliefs, which is what philosophy does, but to annihilate them by being present.

The Solution

Being present is what will lead to real happiness and freedom from thoughts. It is the only way to ensure that we don’t hold beliefs are real. To do this we need to practice being present. But that topic is for another blog post.

Right now we need to realize that no belief is real. I already gave you the example of the earth being a sphere as a belief. But there are more of them that need to be looked at and annihilated with your conscious presence.

So watch this video to listen to my story and then comment here what you think beliefs really are?
