He is neither cold nor hot. He is warm.

He is warm-hearted. He is the warmth.

He is the very life is us. In everything. He is life. He lives.

Life lives itself through you.

Only living doesn’t count. Thats just breathing.

Don’t just go on living. Add fucking value. Because adding value means living.

Live every moment because every one of them is the first and the last one that you’ll never get back.

Live it fully and make the most of it

Be available. Life is waiting to sing through you.

We don’t contain life, life contains us. It surrounds us.

We live in the ocean of life. We live in the ocean of love.

Listen to the moment. Be with yourself.

One who is available is living. One who is not knows how to live.

Welcome to life!

The art of Memorizing and 21 Tips to Boost your Memory Power

Have you ever faced a situation when you wanted to recall something and it evaded you again and again?

Even though you had read it thoroughly but you face issues while recalling it. Memory is a weak niche for some while at the same time a strong reason for others to reach the higher rungs of success.

Human beings are gifted with a quality of remembering things which is called as Memory. The experiences that you have in your life are registered in your brain forever. As you move through Life, your mind is continuously observing the surroundings, clicking mental photographs and capturing the information from all around.

Having a good memory is almost an essential requirement of being successful. Imagine the fate of people who cannot remember simple things. Think about the pitiable condition of Amnesia patients who forget everything on account of an injury; their names, place they live and what they do.

Having a good memory is a quality to remember things perceived by any of the cognitive senses, which could be recalled when required, in a highly specialized and efficient way. To most of us, it seems to be a natural gift received by birth which cannot be improved upon. But quite on the contrary is true. Not only your Memory Power can be improved upon but it can also be made to work in an extremely efficient and specialized way. This is possible by understanding the Psychological Principles behind it and by learning to use the right techniques. It is important to understand the dynamics of this remembering and recalling system and how it works.

Read the following questions and think about them for a while. Try to find the answers from your own experiences.

  • How do you remember things?
  • How is your brain able to recall things in almost an instant?
  • What is the first impression?
  • What is short-term and long-term memory?
  • What are the processes involved in storing and recalling a memory?

Memory is an amazing system which functions in almost a flawless way unless you decide to bang your head on the wall hard enough to lose it! Once you have learnt the nitty-gritties of it you’ll be able to strengthen it much more than you could imagine. This article is intended to provide you with a basic idea of how it works and help your Memory to serve you in a better and efficient way.


Importance of Memory –

Memory is a complex mental Process by which the experiences that one has, are registered safely in the brain only to be recalled later in the times of need or recognized when similar experiences repeat in one’s Life. Without the power of memory, our lives would come to a halt and we would lose our entire knowledge bank. It would be necessary then to start a new life every day or even every hour. There could be no education, learning or growth possible without memory. Without it we would not even be able to recognize ourselves, what to say of family and friends. We would be left at the hands of Fate and our life will become stagnant with no practical progress.


Is it possible to improve one’s memory by right education?

Yes, it is absolutely possible. With right techniques and strong perseverance, memory power can be drastically improved. There have been a lot of experiments in this area to prove this fact. Various Experiments were conducted on dogs, sparrows, fishes, monkeys, and dolphins and even simple worms that crawl which showed positive results. Notable Scientists like Pavlov and Dr. Leland have conducted a lot of research on memory power.


Memory is a Specialized Process

It may come as surprise to you that there is no specific muscle or compartment in your brains, which is dedicated to memory. Actually there is no such thing as memory inside us. People in specific fields develop a natural skill to remember the facts and figures demanded by their profession or field of work. A scientist might find it difficult to remember the stock prices, which comes natural to a trader or broker. A lot of people have researched in this zone that throws more light on the detail workings of the memory. It is a highly specialized and subjective process that works better and aligns itself with the areas of your interest or field of study. So it is imperative for you to choose and define the areas where you need your memory to help you. Some find it easy to remember the name of new people whereas for some, it is almost impossible.


Four Stages–

This is the first step in building a memory. Events and experiences are registered in your brain, the very first time they happen to you. It is important that these first impressions are deep, vivid and elaborate. You have heard – “First impression is the Last impression”. This is true to some extent with the memory process. First impressions of your memory need to be effective for better recalling benefits. If something is learned half-heartedly how can you expect to remember it for a long time? It is necessary for a good memory to allow your mind to have a deep impression of the lessons. Learn slowly and be with the things for a while. This helps to pass the first step.


After the impression is made it becomes a part of your brain. Next step is to allow the information to be soaked in as deeply and completely as possible. Retention means to hold the information and making it a part of your permanent memory. In this part, we repeat and often re-learn. Re-read and learn the information by repeating the learning task. Repetition helps in the deepening the first impression.

Different people exhibit different retention powers owing to the difference in the quality of the first impression and ways of repetition. We all have faced the situation where we meet a person for the second time and unable to recall his name. This is due to a bad retention of memory.

Recalling is the process of bringing a stored memory to the surface of the conscious mind where it can be utilized. Good recalling is the criteria for a good memory. If you cannot recall something, you cannot use it. Recall is possible with right mental associations. Learn to associate the stored information with your existing knowledge base. Relate two facts which are similar to each other. Connect your past and present experiences of similar things. Highly vivid and efficient associations have a possibility of better and faster recall.

Recognition is the power to relate and match things and facts in the life with those in the memory. If you meet a known person and are unable to relate to him you are suffering from a lack of Recognition. Even if we recall something at the right time but cannot recognize it, the memory would be futile. Recognition is the last and most essential step for the memory to work properly.

All these steps are interconnected and allow our memories to function in a harmonious way. Understand and work upon these steps to improve your memory. Learn to register properly. Repeat it. Practice recalling and recognizing it. This is the secret.

Here are some tips to give you boost.

  1. Learn with a Purpose. A Powerful Purpose magnetizes your powers in a single direction and hence results in a better memory.
  2. Learn the power of Mental Association. Associate all new faces, events, things, experiences with the things you already know and can relate to. A person with a strange face is likely to be remembered.
  3. Read and learn with Concentration. The higher it is the better the resulting memory.
  4. Allow the first impressions to go Deeper.
  5. Higher interest levels create deeper impressions and result in long-term memory. Keep yourself enthusiastic while learning new things.
  6. Keep it Short and Summarized. Do not overlearn.
  7. Separate the times of repetitions by taking gaps. Continuous repetition is not going to help.
  8. While learning a new fact – Understand and Master the basic principle first and then add more branches as you go ahead.
  9. Repeat the Next Day. Research shows that a very large chunk of read information is forgotten in the next 24 hours.
  10. Contemplate during breaks.
  11. Start using the information you have learned during conversations. Talk about it.
  12. Learn the whole passage in one go unless it is too long. Research has proved that 240 lines of Poem/Prose can be learned and memorized by human brain without breaking.
  13. Use the power of Mnemonics. Google about them and Create your own.
  14. Practice recalling your information at different times. Offer yourself surprise tests.
  15. Master the art of Good Note-taking.
  16. Forget things that are not needed. Do not unnecessary trouble your brain by remembering every little detail about everything. Learn to categorize and sort important and useful things.
  17. Transform your brain into a well-organized library which could present the right information as soon as it is needed.
  18. Utilize more senses than just eyes and mouth while reading and learning. Learn to say it aloud or even touch it. Use your senses.
  19. Consciously Think about the topic mentally and compare it with other References.
  20. Trust your Memory completely.
  21. Stop using bookmarks while reading. Use your memory instead.

Soya Sauce

Dear Seekers!

Welcome to Zen.

Today I bring you a funny Zen story that is not just expected to bring a temporary smile on your face but also to plant a seed of permanent Zen laughter in your Heart.

Truth is not about being serious, it is about being happy, laughing, dancing and yet sincere.

Let’s read the story with a smile on your face-

One day there was an earthquake that shook the entire Zen temple. Parts of it even collapsed. Many of the monks were terrified.

When the earthquake stopped the teacher said, “Now you have had the opportunity to see how a Zen man behaves in a crisis situation. You may have noticed that I did not panic. I was quite aware of what was happening and what to do. I led you all to the kitchen, the strongest part of the temple. It was a good decision, because you see we have all survived without any injuries.

However, despite my self-control and composure, I did feel a little bit tense – which you may have deduced from the fact that I drank a large glass of water, something I never do under ordinary circumstances.”

One of the monks smiled, but didn’t say anything.“What are you laughing at?” asked the teacher.

“That wasn’t water,” the monk replied, “it was a large glass of soya sauce.”

A man of Zen is the one who has awakened to the very essence of life.

It is an awakening that comes from within, when you are not looking, just sitting, silent, relaxed and doing absolutely nothing, inside and the outside.

Zen does not provide any books, methods or literature, rather just puzzles, jokes and stories that are silent indicators towards the experience.

To know the truth is an individual responsibility and it cannot be delegated. Nobody else can know it for you, you have to dedicate all that is ‘yours’ in you, to allow the truth to manifest in your life.

Saint Kabir has said –

Kabira khadaa bazaar mein, liye lukaathi haath
Jo ghar baare aapna, chale hamaare saath!

It means those who are ready to burn down their houses are invited to the mystical journey of Truth.

Let’s go to the story –

It is the story of a Zen seeker and not a Zen master. The seeker is on the way towards his goal. He is in the monastery leading other seekers and fulfilling his role as a teacher.

He has known a little and feels pride to boast about it.

The earthquake comes and he panics, but the mind rationalizes. An act happens spontaneously and the mind was not present.
Later on, the mind comes and takes credit for the event and builds a story around it.
These stories of the mind, are stories in the air that have no significance. Nothing useful can be done with them. They are mere words with nothing concrete and tangible in them.
Stories cannot hide the Truth. Truth shows itself in one or the other ways. By your words, actions and body-language it would show.

The man of truth speaks for himself. His walk, talk and actions,  all and everything, are aligned to the same principle.

Be aware of your actions.
Realize yourself and realize the purpose of Life!

Piece of Contemplation –

  • Are my thoughts, feelings, words and actions aligned to each other?
  • Do I feel pride in showing my knowledge?
  • What is the purpose of my Life?

Wishing you an enlightened Life!

Who wants?

Asking ‘Who wants’ is much more important than asking ‘What do I want?’.
We just want to do things. Not knowing why, or who wants them?

We get impulses to want to do things, and in the moment.
When a desire comes, wait for a moment. Go inside and look at yourself.

Make it count. Use every thought and everything that drives you outside.Look within.
Who wants?

Add yourself to the desire.
Give your desires, impulses, cravings, excitements, a touch of awareness.

Tell your mind – Ok. Got it. We’ll have it. We’ll do it. But first let us find out, who wants it?

Who is inside?
Who craves?
Who desires?
Who thinks?
Who am I?

Ask this question, every time you want to take a new step and every time you want to take a step backwards.

Be with yourself.
Happy Being!

Without Blinking an Eye

Dear Seekers.

Welcome to Zen!
Here’s another story for you.

The story highlights the qualities of Zen.
What happens when Zen flowers?

More after the story –

During the civil wars in feudal Japan, an invading army would quickly sweep into a town and take control. In one particular village, everyone fled just before the army arrived – everyone except the Zen master. 

Curious about this old fellow, the general went to the temple to see for himself what kind of man this master was. When he wasn’t treated with the deference and submissiveness to which he was accustomed, the general burst into anger.

“You fool,” he shouted as he reached for his sword, “don’t you realize you are standing before a man who could run you through without blinking an eye!” 

But despite the threat, the master seemed unmoved. 

“And do you realize,” the master replied calmly, “that you are standing before a man who can be run through without blinking an eye?”

A man of truth is different. He is beyond the imagination, beyond the dualities, beyond everything and everywhere human mind can go.

He has known the very secret of life. The essence after knowing which, there is no fear, no loss, no suffering and no death.

Let’s go to the story –

The story is about the war times in Japan when every village was getting invaded by the army. In one particular village when everybody fled after they heard about the attack, only one Zen master lay unmoved. He didn’t even budge an inch.

When the General questioned his audacity – he replied “Do you realize that I can be run through without blinking an eye?”

This is beyond the human mind. We know about courage, but that is our definition of it. We also know about forgiveness, but that is our definition too.

Everything we know is limited. Unlimited cannot be known, it can only be lived in this very moment.

What is real courage?
What is real forgiveness?
We don’t know that yet.

We get angry, we feel scared, we shiver and we flee. At the most we fight. We are aware of these responses because they all, belong to the mind. Are we aware of the Zen responses?

Can you even imagine that love can reach such a height that it can forgive anything and everything?
Nothing can be done to change the quality and intensity of such kind of love.

It is possible. This kind of love does not come from the mind. It is not dependent on our imagination, theories and preconceived notions. It flowers from the very source. It is the very quality of the living experience inside us.

Know this love and you shall know god.

At this stage, you are not forgiving. You simply are available and response comes. It comes out of the understanding; The Understanding of Truth.

Your responses are based on your Understanding, if you don’t know who you are and you take yourself to be something that you are not, how can your responses be correct?

Contemplation –
Have I known true love which is unlimited, undoubting and unconditional?
Have I experienced constant formless presence inside me?
Have I known forgiveness?

Have a blessed life!

P.S. I also wanted to know-

How many of you read Zen stories?
How many of you like them?
How many of you want them to continue?
Any other feedback you would like to give?

Request you all to drop a note as you have a moment.
