VALUABLE LESSONS: Tao and Water-The Real Spiritual Lesson.

Dear Friend,

Let’s take a look at the Tao of Water.  The Tao is often associated with the force of Water, but most of what is written about what Taoism says about water is wrong.

If you go into the natural world, and observe water or you experiment with it, water reveals its qualities:

  • Water is relentless.  It never stops exerting its force.
  • Its force is a manifestation of its nature.  It does not try to be something it is not, applying neither morality nor immorality.
  • When it is restricted, Water seeks the weakest spot of any obstruction and applies constant force until it is free.
  • When it is pressed or attacked, it changes form and repositions itself.  It exerts constant counter force to search for weakness.
  • Water is opportunistic.  Given the slightest opening it will pass through.  It will do so while the opening is present.  It will widen the opening if possible.
  • Water always seeks to do the easiest thing as long as it can.
  • Water does not complain about the path it follows.  It simply follows the path.
  • Water has a wide range of energetic expressions, but continues to be Water.  It can be still.  It can be sluggish.  It can be swift.  It can be pounding.  It can be vapor.

Are you that person?

If there is no motion in the direction you want to go from the place you want to go, find the place that you can go, and keep going.

That is what water would do.  Learn the lesson of water.

Now, that is how you apply nature to being a Taoist.

Warm regards,

VALUABLE LESSONS: AM I ADDICTED WRITER?

We all are addicted to something that might ruining us.

Sometimes those addictions, which makes you felt happy/satisfied, that is where the problem starts. Particular habit or set of habits will store in your mind that command you to do every single day to make you happy/satisfy.

I started realizing these addictions and reading over the last just couple of days, I started coming to the conclusion, whether you addiction is with good intent or bad intent is quite dangerous too.

I think, I said few more times in my past posts. When I started blogging in the initial times, every day at 07:30 PM, I decided to write. My thought, whatever but I wanna write. I said to myself from the first post, I should not miss not even a single day, at any cost, at any moment.

I feel great when I was keep on writing, sometimes when I back to my hometown. I write while traveling. Feels too good. Sometimes, work pressure, circumstances seems too untidy. I could not pause my writing. Badly, I pushed it. Badly. Most of the times, I could not able to come up with the content. I pushed and forced my brain. Content aroused. Just pushing and gushing, sometimes makes be bit embraced and pain too. I wasn’t thinking at that time, am I writing with the flow or am I addicted “to write every day for the sake of dopamine ingredient”.

When the days goes along with my writings. I do have a quite a bit wider approach towards writings. I select a topic and get into bit deeper.

Am I searching inside and outside of my mind and body to “just write” in an addictive manner?

Or

Am I thinking and deciding very well to deliver contents in a good manner?

I started having this catastrophe thought, am I addictive to writing?

I think, naturally every writer stretch his/her mind. That’s fine. I am not exceptional. But by letting yourself, the flow, to keep writing. That doesn’t mean you must write every single day. No more excuses. Nothing.

To me as an upcoming writer, if my reason is rationale, fine. I pause myself and once I get into the flow of writing. I do write and my flow continuous.

I knew that writing every day is very important. But your state of mind is saying to pause for a while?

Just pause it.

I asked myself when I took terrible one week break due to burnout and sleep deprivation.

What if, my addictions leads to stop my writing?

What if, my addictions leads to stop my natural creativity with regards to writing?

What if, I could not make come up with the on that particular day to write?

I sabotage, myself.

That is not okay at all for my profession. I should have to prepare and research for the content which I had chosen.

I understood, nothing to worry. Just recover and allow yourself the flow of writing. Do not push, you must write. Don’t get into the addictive mode.

Note down every content and just be prepare and do it as good as.

I wanna be gradual writer (I am a rationale writer too).

With respect.

VALUABLE LESSONS: WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO SAY TO THE UPCOMING WRITERS?

Again there is one more valuable lesson: Yesterday, on LinkedIn, I had a conversation with a Signaling Engineer, Ashish pradhan. This gentleman asked me in a professional manner,

I want to learn about writing and make it my professional career, could you plz guide me.

Immediately, I said “Yes”. After a moment, I started thinking, what should I have to guide to the upcoming writers? Although, I thought for a second, I just writing over the last just two years, is it required to guide someone?

Then, I decided, I do have to something to say, something valuable, a valuable lesson,

Brutal fact is; my mistakes, my pitfalls, not editing after writing. So, I am ready to guide someone. I would love to share my experience and ready to say about my realistic lesson

I knew myself very well as a writer, I am not better in writing, but I do have a good writing with very good consistency and with openheartedness, I would share valuable information, stories, quotes and books too.

I remember very well about the mistakes I made as a writer. I took few notes on writing from those who guided me and even from books too.

Here I wanna sort it and then I need to deliver to him.

I started to deliver without any self-esteem about my mistakes and lessons. I completely decided to write.

I started by saying,

Hello Mr Ashish,

Great to connect with you. Again my extreme apologize. The reply was delayed by a day to you. I felt bad. But I am in extreme burnout and sleep deprivation.

Sorry to start with my personal story. It could be a lesson for you.

I am just, just been writing almost 2 years to the public readers by WordPress blog. So far I have written just 650+ posts. I have a huge and deep hesitation to show-off my writings to anyone when I was a diary writer from 2006-2019. I just learned I should come up and start writing. Let others guide you. Even more, if someone pointed out your mistakes. I will take it as “Constructive Criticism Accepted”.

Here, my lesson, foremost I would like to say to you is, please start writing right now. Today. I am deeply and badly struggling as a writer. Still, you could notice grammatical mistakes or editing part is completely missing in my blog. But I decided to be an editor too and started learning and simultaneously editing my past posts too.

No, there is nothing known as a good time to write or once you learned the 100% grammar or once your mind strikes something innovative idea to write.

I don’t think anything works. If it works you or someone, fine. Please Go-Ahead.

But you should start writing. Even if you have or not grammatical skills/innovative ideas.

A writer supposed to write. Even things aren’t working out.

Setting a target is fine. Example; setting “I will write minimum 250 words everyday”.

Just keep writing.

Read and write simultaneously. If you read for one hour and you should write for an hour.

Whether Fiction/Non-fiction. You can decide.

I would sincerely encourage you to start a blog and deliver it to the public. Or please write an article for a newspaper/magazine. Let them notice. Most probably, you could get guidance. I got in the initial point of times. Even a couple of week before. I got a guest post to my blog.

Not finally, have a purpose before you write. Please consider my point, do not write for a click or by giving content strategies.

Have a morality before you write.

You can start with a story or you say something before you share something valuable information.

1. Read more and widely.

2. Write. Keep writing.

3. After writing and keep reading what you wrote. If you could found any mistakes/any editing part is required. Please do check and rectify.

4. Read several times what you wrote.

5. Give it to your mentor or you well-wisher to read what you wrote.

6. Please don’t give up. If things aren’t working out.

Until things works, you need to keep writing.

For a writer, there is nothing called perfection. You should learn to be a better version on every piece which you are yet to write.

With respect.

VALUABLE LESSONS: TERRIBLE BREAK IN MY BLOGGING.

I still have no idea, where to start the lessons that I have learned over a week.

It took a week to back and blog and started focusing on the works that I had been doing so far.

Couple of days before, I had a 9 hours travel from noon to night to visit my room where I stayed. Looks pretty ugly. Because I am quite happy to visit my place (my room) where I worked and my favourite place to study and the environment and everything.

After opening the door, I could not able to enter. Not even a step. Cockroaches were roamed very well and finally died even more spider conquered and well settled.

Oh almighty. But thank you almighty. My books are absolutely clean in my wardrobe. But newspapers and my whiteboard seems too nasty to clean.

Finally, I cleaned it in five hours in a determined way. I haven’t slept the whole night. Again, by the next day, back to my hometown. No sleep, while travelling. Just thinking about what I forgot. Precisely, which book I forgot. Keep on thinking.

Then the next five consecutive days, I could not sleep that leads to blur on my each and every work. I just start the day by writing journal (Some point, I miss, But I do write separately every night) or reading or watching a documentary. I could not give my full attention to any of the particular activity. That caused over the last 7 days. Severe sleep deprivation.

Yesterday, my eyes was uncomfortable. I just look into my mirror. I, eye gazed myself and noticed down to my eyes looks swelling. Very bad to look at my face.

Then I started a bit by bit and started learning and thinking deeper.

What’s wrong with me?

Why I again started not follow my 6 hours of my sleep schedule?

Just last two days, I was trying to write. There is no clarity within myself. My mind just roaming. I do have few contents to start. But I could not focus at all.

I said to myself, I should I have proper 24-hours schedule. If not sometimes, that’s okay. But not too suffering.

Even I am writing this content in the mid-night only.

I should change my time of blogging. In order to smooth and consistent process in my future blogs.  

Why am I writing my personal story here?

The lessons are, the 24 hours-cycle in our human body and our productivity supposed to in chronological way.

Some of them who are doing night-shifts differs.

I would sincerely suggest to all of my respected readers, having 6 hours of perfect sleep and work 75% productively in 18 hours. Remaining 25% of 18 hours is the leisure times.

To me, I totally stumbled here in this process over a week.

Ladies and gentleman, my extreme apologize to “the most respected readers”.

With respect.

LET’S FACE-OFF IN 2021.

The only way to fight against all the odds is to confront it. If the hesitation occurs or if we are in deep regret about what might happen on this or that situation. I think, our mind would collapse.

Just don’t leave the stuff simply by neglecting it. Just open your mind to see what are the bold possibilities that I can do? Rather than being lethargic.

Until now from my life lessons, I started stopping not only negative thoughts but also some unusual thoughts.

Why am I writing this content?

Over the last couple of days, I was ferocious about a particular issue. Believe me, I was too exhausted and evening I could not able to worry even a bit more about that issue?

I just tired mentally.

I gave a sudden pause.

Seriously, I have no idea. What to do further?

I drew two rules.

1. Just face-off.

2. Leave it. Do not care at all.  

If readers supposed to choose anyone of the above two rules. Yes please, they could decide depends on the situation.

I would suggest, when I got two rules, I started getting clarity. The first option seems challenging and it captivate me to prove it whether you are good/worthy enough to handle this issue. The second options also sounds wise, if number one rule is not working out. Just go for rule number 2.

It is also better to leave that issue. Just go forward and proceed further. I think sometimes you need to step-aside too. In order not to prove, but “never-mind attitude”.

Just, just leave it.

Nothing will gonna affect you, if you choose number 2.

Actually, nobody cares whether you face-off/step-side. They may or may not. But the only way to improve yourself is, you need to know what you truly want, not simply expecting what someone think.

In some scenarios it will work, just step aside from everything. If you wanna improve in your life. Just draw a plan and improve. Don’t compete with anyone. Set a target and work until gets reached. Whenever you made a plan and proceeding for actions. Just do it. Beat your target.  No matter, whomever says what?

We each one of us has a goal and to-do-something.

Succeeded or failed that is ultimately secondary. But the actions and approach you done that makes you goose bump. Joyous moments and a sense of accomplishment really makes you to move forward.

With respect.

Valuable lessons: What is Linguistics? An Introduction to the Study of Language.

This is the one of the best linguistic writings that I am sharing you all.

These lines pays me a bit more clarity about the language and the usage of the grammar. It took several months to jump into the linguistics. Because I wasn’t doing good and enough research. I’m still getting gathering relevant books and materials and starting reading.

If you ask me, which field in linguistics you comes under?

Without any single doubt or thought, I would like to go-ahead and start my research in lexicography because it is the process of writing, editing and compiling dictionaries. I love dictionaries. I knew every reader and writer loves too.

I remember my school days, we keep a small pocket dictionary. My English teachers taught us to search words which we don’t know. I still remember when I was 11th Standard (high school), when we paid our high school fees, our school has given each of us COLLINS COBUILD DICTIONARY. To me, at that moment, it was quite a big in my palms. I was too hungry to learn a word, whether I understand or I use. I wanna learn a word. Let’s see the understandings and usages of the words later. Foremost, let’s start finding a word.

When I was in undergraduate college days. I write a vocabulary on every single day with illustration in our black board. Sometimes, I couldn’t grab a word. Even more to admit in ashamed manner, I couldn’t illustrate for that particular vocabulary. I ask my colleague without hesitation or ego. Because I was too furious/ruthless to learn languages in both English and Tamil too. I decided that there is no hesitation or ashamed when it comes to learning.

I love searching not only precise word which I don’t know. Even more, I go with random words which fascinates me and making me to note it down and at extreme point, my muscle memory becomes stronger to remember those words. To be quite honest and rational, I was started giving extreme priorities to get those words from the dictionaries. I would love to use that words in my writings and my conversations too.

Here the linguistics article, I’m gonna paste the source link down below. I sincerely encourage you all visit further because there are several linguistics topics you could see. I have bright hope. It will impact your knowledge in languages. And there are few recommendable linguistics textbooks to learn about fundamentals in languages and linguistics.

Every human knows at least one language, spoken or signed. Linguistics is the science of language, including the sounds, words, and grammar rules. Words in languages are finite, but sentences are not. It is this creative aspect of human language that sets it apart from animal languages, which are essentially responses to stimuli.

The rules of a language, also called grammar, are learned as one acquires a language. These rules include phonology, the sound system, morphology, the structure of words, syntax, the combination of words into sentences, semantics, the ways in which sounds and meanings are related, and the lexicon, or mental dictionary of words. When you know a language, you know words in that language, i.e. sound units that are related to specific meanings. However, the sounds and meanings of words are arbitrary. For the most part, there is no relationship between the way a word is pronounced (or signed) and its meaning.

Knowing a language encompasses this entire system, but this knowledge (called competence) is different from behavior (called performance.) You may know a language, but you may also choose to not speak it. Although you are not speaking the language, you still have the knowledge of it. However, if you don’t know a language, you cannot speak it at all.

There are two types of grammars: descriptive and prescriptive. Descriptive grammars represent the unconscious knowledge of a language. English speakers, for example, know that “me likes apples” is incorrect and “I like apples” is correct, although the speaker may not be able to explain why. Descriptive grammars do not teach the rules of a language, but rather describe rules that are already known. In contrast, prescriptive grammars dictate what a speaker’s grammar should be and they include teaching grammars, which are written to help teach a foreign language.

There are about 7,000 languages in the world right now (a rough estimate), and linguists have discovered that these languages are more alike than different from each other. There are universal concepts and properties that are shared by all languages, and these principles are contained in the Universal Grammar, which forms the basis of all possible human languages.

Rabindranath Tagore’s writing is deeply rooted in both Indian and Western learning traditions. Apart from fiction in the form of poetry, songs, stories, and dramas, it also includes portrayals of common people’s lives, literary criticism, philosophy, and social issues. Rabindranath Tagore originally wrote in Bengali, but later reached a broad audience in the West after recasting his poetry in English. In contrast to the frenzied life in the West, his poetry was felt to convey the peace of the soul in harmony with nature.

Biographical

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was the youngest son of Debendranath Tagore, a leader of the Brahmo Samaj, which was a new religious sect in nineteenth-century Bengal and which attempted a revival of the ultimate monistic basis of Hinduism as laid down in the Upanishads. He was educated at home; and although at seventeen he was sent to England for formal schooling, he did not finish his studies there. In his mature years, in addition to his many-sided literary activities, he managed the family estates, a project which brought him into close touch with common humanity and increased his interest in social reforms. He also started an experimental school at Shantiniketan where he tried his Upanishadic ideals of education. From time to time he participated in the Indian nationalist movement, though in his own non-sentimental and visionary way; and Gandhi, the political father of modern India, was his devoted friend. Tagore was knighted by the ruling British Government in 1915, but within a few years he resigned the honour as a protest against British policies in India.

Tagore had early success as a writer in his native Bengal. With his translations of some of his poems he became rapidly known in the West. In fact his fame attained a luminous height, taking him across continents on lecture tours and tours of friendship. For the world he became the voice of India’s spiritual heritage; and for India, especially for Bengal, he became a great living institution.

Although Tagore wrote successfully in all literary genres, he was first of all a poet. Among his fifty and odd volumes of poetry are Manasi (1890) [The Ideal One], Sonar Tari (1894) [The Golden Boat], Gitanjali (1910) [Song Offerings], Gitimalya (1914) [Wreath of Songs], and Balaka (1916) [The Flight of Cranes]. The English renderings of his poetry, which include The Gardener (1913), Fruit-Gathering (1916), and The Fugitive (1921), do not generally correspond to particular volumes in the original Bengali; and in spite of its title, Gitanjali: Song Offerings (1912), the most acclaimed of them, contains poems from other works besides its namesake. Tagore’s major plays are Raja (1910) [The King of the Dark Chamber], Dakghar (1912) [The Post Office], Achalayatan (1912) [The Immovable], Muktadhara (1922) [The Waterfall], and Raktakaravi (1926) [Red Oleanders]. He is the author of several volumes of short stories and a number of novels, among them Gora (1910), Ghare-Baire (1916) [The Home and the World], and Yogayog (1929) [Crosscurrents]. Besides these, he wrote musical dramas, dance dramas, essays of all types, travel diaries, and two autobiographies, one in his middle years and the other shortly before his death in 1941. Tagore also left numerous drawings and paintings, and songs for which he wrote the music himself.

MY STORY: WHAT I LEARNED FROM BOOKS?

I haven’t read any books until college. It’s a bad statement but, I was hanging around with my high school books.

8428

I started reading the first book in my college library. The language was Tamil. சாதனைகள் சாத்தியமே ( Achievements are achievable). I hope, I’m translating it right! Sorry.

Thangavelu Marimuthu is the author.

It contains only 128 pages. I really struggled to finish it off. At the same time, I would love to finish it because I felt really motivated the way the author has been conveyed.

I never read books for entertainment or passing times (if I feel boring). I will read the book because I love it, I’d love to learn from it. Finally, I’m gonna think with all the possibilities then I’ll apply. Every time, I used to say particularly special about books. Vocabulary. The unknown words make me search the meaning and also to use it in the conversation.

So far, my thinking ability has been widened. I’m feeling like the same books I read, I need to read it again. Still, I could go into deeper.

Every month, I read the minimum 2 and maximum 3.

Then every month, I visit the mall and old bookshop I will buy 2 more books.

My state of mind was happy, it knows what to learn?

This was my asset.

Readers are leaders,

Readers are writers.
