Just A Thought – Happy Clones?

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could fire clones of a happy version of yourself across Time – in the Past, Present and Future? A clone that could appear and cheer you up in some of the gloomy memories of Past. A happy clone who could sit beside you in the Present, reassuring you as you worry about things. And the best of all – a happy clone waiting for you in the Future. Just the thought that this future clone would not let you be upset about anything and make you so relaxed, is exhilarating.

Amazing or delusional? I don’t know….but rejuvenating, Yes! Don’t you agree?

Small Thing#3 – Sad but can’t help it!

How true are these words! We are all self proclaimed stars! We are a generation, armed with technology to showcase ourselves anywhere and everywhere…in the best possible light. And we are doing it, running after it, competing for one second of fame on our social media world! But what do we have to offer? ….Ugghh…Seriously?

As we record our ongoing history – friends bargain likes for likes, propagandists mix up facts, fiction becomes fact! Everyone’s beautiful through edited selfies, borrowed wisdom, sugary moments, lovely videos…anyone can be a star in our generation! What a beautiful place! Really? What a maze! What should be believed in? What should be followed? And, haven’t we excelled in editing…in fact… editing out reality, itself?

I guess, posterity will have a tough time sieving truth and excellence out of our recorded history. Because we all know that sparkling gems are being covered by piles and piles of fire crackers!

 But we all love it, don’t we? Can’t help it!

Can we reset our past?


Can we change our past? Most of us would answer an emphatic ‘No’ to this question. We have always been told that our past can never be changed.

But this particular quote by the great Richard Bach got me thinking. 

You are always free to change your mind and choose a different future, or a different past.                                                                     

Choose a different past, really? What made Richard Bach write that? I thought.
Further research made me smile. I got my answer! Bach was right! Our past can really be changed. I learnt that our past is energy and made up of our experiences…of what we have gone through in our private world. If we change the way we look at our past, our past will take a different shape… thereby liberating us in our present and changing our future for better.

Even if two people were a part of the same incident, their perspective about it would differ from each other. Past is a variable…If it was invariable, every person in a particular time and place would have undergone exactly the same kind of emotions, same sort of feelings and level of trauma. But everyone has a different past. You and your sibling’s past could be similar but not same!  

I learnt that our past can be changed by changing our perspective towards it, through creativity, positivity and visualization of the event. It can be changed through different ways, which you can read in this inspiring post here. (http://simonarich.com/change-your-past)

Dear confidantes, if something about your past is troubling you, take this journey – Go back in time, look at the incident as an observer and try to help your ‘stuck’ self there by being positive and strong. Tell yourself – you will emerge stronger after this! Be creative and strong as you live through it!

We derive strength from our past when we have a grim present…why not the other way round? Everything is possible! 


We are always free to change our mind and choose a different future, or a different past.

Quotes by Great Men on India!

  
Lately, I have been missing my motherland, India, rather sorely. In flashes, the memory of my country haunts me as I go about doing my daily task. I recall the biddings of my grandmother, the care of my parents, the playfulness of my siblings, the chidings of my teachers, the companionship of my friends, the humdrum of daily life, the sights, the feel…everything.  I guess, I am homesick and I need to see that beloved land soon.
