Music and Lyrics – explicit much?

Aah the lyrics in some of the songs these days just drive me crazy. Not because they do not make sense, but because they sound a bit too vulgar to be honest.

Following and above is going to be just my opinion. I do not mean to offend anyone. If you agree you would like what you read, simple as that.

I am a person who chooses to listen to music with good lyrics. When I say good I am talking about lyrics that makes sense. Lyrics that passes a good message. Hope I am not alone to notice this but songs releasing in past few months had spread only a message to get drunk, get high, smoke a joint and other R rated activities that they just have to promote.

What I do not understand is same music plays in most of all the clubs on a Friday or Saturday night, where the singers just abuse women; picture them as some material and then that same club is full of girls who are dancing to those beats and words. News flash we now also have female singers loving to abuse themselves or portraying herself somewhat disgusting yet making it sound “Cool”. What does not make sense to me is the part why would someone want to take abuse as a celebration or fun? Question in my head is why this generation has to make such a vulnerable choice?

Are we losing respect to ourselves as a person? Are we loving the part when we get abused?

There are rappers mostly who materialize woman and then again there are rappers like 2pac who said words like, “Since we all came from a woman, got our name from a woman, and our game from a woman. I wonder why we take from women, why we rape our women, do we hate our women? I think it’s time we killed for our women, be real to our women, try to heal our women, cause if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies that will hate the ladies, who make the babies. And since a man can’t make one he has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one.”

I have noticed myself changing my choice of music after few months in past 4 years. In that 4 years I have experienced different effects of the songs I listen to. That was the only reason I had to write this blog.

I ask you all to make a good choice of what you listen to. Because you may not experience this directly, but indirectly what you listen and what you see effects your behavior in everyday life a lot.

I ask you to listen to something positive and look at the positive things in your life. The more we surround us with negative or aggressive material, the more wilder animal we will become.  So, unless you choose to be a wild animal make sure you guard your eyes and ears and only let the good things get in.

I mentioned it before and again I mention it here, that above is my opinion. You do not have to agree with it. If you agree or disagree I would like to know why and how. Because above I said it is my opinion, I did not say I am right. So, please help me understand this if my opinion is wrong.

Thank you for reading.

Today I am going to express my thoughts on something that all of us have experienced some time in life. Especially when we looked up to someone and got our expectations damaged.

How many people you can think of who are famous and will take time to write you back for your questions and suggestions? Why once somebody becomes a bit famous gets lost in a different world? Do they get to join some secret club of famous people and not allowed to talk anymore outside the group?

There is a famous inspiring author I would not put his name here, but I have seen him growing famous and richer in past few years from the time he started. I bought the first book he wrote and I have his last one that is recently published as well. I am a big fan of his work. But I notice him running after money now. I just wish it is only what I see from outside and it is not true. But, observing closely even you would have the same impression that someone seemed trying to changed the world by inspiring people and then got lost making money instead and not replying even a single person who keeps writing him. Like I mentioned before it is perhaps our misunderstanding. Moving on….

There is an Indian Guru I want to mention about here, Pramukh Swami Maharaj. Here is where you can find out more about him. http://www.swaminarayan.org/pramukhswami/index.htm (I am not genius about how these links work, I have tried entering the link here, unless I messed up it should work fine.)

Murti of Sahajanand Swami

I am not trying to promote him or going to ask you to follow his path. I just want to bring a simple truth to the world that if you read in that link he has read and replied over 500,000 letters and personally counselled and comforted over 810,000 people. How do I know its true? Because every temple he has in the world I have seen people gathering for holy rituals every week and on festivals to personally be able to talk to him for guidance and comfort. He is famous too, yet he has remembered his purpose all along since he started, that is to help people think through with the help of his own knowledge and enlightenment.

I have given you two examples. In first one I did not put the Author’s name thinking it might be just my perception or experience and if I am no better than him I have no rights to judge him. In second example I put the Monk’s name thinking if he is doing something good he should be known to few more people. I do not know much about him but that is one thing he does without missing about replying people who seek help and guidance that touched my emotions.

Remember, if you become famous someday or if you are now it is because of the big number of people who supported you; your beliefs and your thoughts when you were nobody. It is because of them that today you are somebody. 

Make sure when people look up to you and ask you for help you give them. Make sure when somebody is lost you help that person get back on track if he asks you for direction. If you want new messages in your inbox everyday, make sure you reply to the ones sent to you before. 

Happy Monday!!!

Right and Wrong

What is right and what is wrong? Does anyone have ever figured it out. Well, everyone reading must be thinking yes, of course it is easy to tell. I feel when we say this is right and that is wrong, we are merely differing from each other in our perception. Do you ever give it a thought that what may be feeling really wrong to you, must be the most right thing to do for someone else given in that situation?

Here I am going to take a professional example of a lawyer. A lawyer is always challenged to this question. What we do not often think of is, what if a lawyer has managed to save a criminal from going to prison. Well, what was he suppose to do? Lose a case and be non faithful to his client? or win it for him, being giving service to what he was paid for and save a real criminal from going to prison? Just to make it more complicated what if that person was really innocent?

What would you do in that case? would you save a bad guy because you want to be faithful to your customer as they pay you for your services? or would you back stab your client and be a non faithful and unprofessional for your customer, just because you wanted to do the “right thing”, as we call it.

What is the right thing for you here? To be faithful to your customer and give them best of your services? or hold on to your ethics so strong?

(Above example is not brought up to offend any professional lawyers out there.)

We all encounter situations like this every day. I know I do, and so do you. The real challenge is to get over the fact that, what we often refer to right thing and wrong thing is actually just a difference in perception from one side of the story to the other.

Never been able to completely figure it out is the beauty of life. I must admit I love it. I love it every day when I wake up and think about what surprises life will be throwing at me today.

Enjoy your life. Enjoy every second of it. One who gets away with most of the lessons learned by the time of death is the winner.

Thank you for reading.

Giving.

Money is making the world spin around these days. While some of us are talking about getting rich or die trying, there are people who have so much of money they do not know what to do with it.

Money can make you. Money can also break you.

Best thing to do when you have extra money falling out of your pocket is either to invest into something that will give you more money OR use it after a good cause. Charity may be?

Now, what if you have extra money that you have no clue what to do with? What if you become so rich someday that you cannot think of what more i-tunes to pay for or what more credit line to meet up with. I wish we all have so much money someday that we do not know what to do with it. well, are you going to invest it into something that will give you more money for future? I don’t think having more would be the wiser thing to do, if you are already having hard time thinking what to do with what you already have.

The latter thought comes in action here. Charity my friend. Give. That not only “gives” you the pleasure you get from the act of “GIVING” but it may also make a big difference into someones life who may be seeking some sort of financial aid, in order to move forward in life where they need to get to.

Giving is not limited to money. Do you think you have a lot of love to give? Do you think your workplace or your relationship can be much better if you give more efforts into it? Why think twice then? Start Giving now. Feel the pleasure of giving that most of us miss out on.

Giving is an act that is fading away from the face of earth. Let’s Give more. Let’s Give more money (of course to someone who really needs and deserves the most, not everyone or anyone). Give more efforts. Give more love. Giving will not only help you go to bed peacefully at the end of the day, power and pleasure you will get from “GIVING” will also help you defeat humanly enemies like EGO and EXPECTATIONS.
