विचार प्रदूषण

निस्संदेह आज प्रदूषण मानव जाति के लिए सबसे बड़ा खतरा बन चुका है। लेकिन पर्यावरण में होने वाले इस प्रदूषण के अलावा, एक और प्रदूषण हमारे चारों ओर फैल रहा है। यह है विचारों का प्रदूषण। कुछ चिकित्सा विशेषज्ञों के अनुसार, मानव मस्तिष्क में प्रति मिनट तकरीबन 40 विचार उत्पन्न होते हैं, यानी 2,400 विचार प्रति घंटा। ऐसे हालात में हमें ‘असीमित विचारों और सीमित समाधान’ जैसी असामान्य समस्या का सामना करना पड़ता है, जिसकी वजह से अधिकांश लोग तनाव और चिंता के शिकार बन जाते हैं। तो क्या इसका अर्थ यह हुआ कि हमारे विचार हमारे मन के अंदर भीड़ बढ़ा रहे हैं? क्या इस समस्या से उबरने के लिए हम केवल ऐसे विचार नहीं रख सकते, जो हमारे मन में सद्भाव व खुली जगह बनाएं? जितना हम अपने विचारों की गुणवत्ता में सुधार लाएंगे, उतना हमारे मन के भीतर शुद्धता और सौहार्द का निर्माण होगा। इस कठिन लक्ष्य को ‘राजयोग’ की सरल तकनीक से प्राप्त किया जा सकता है। राजयोग एक ऐसी क्रिया है, जो हमें न्यूनतम अव्यवस्था के साथ जीना सिखाती है, जिससे जीवन में हमें अधिक से अधिक शांति की अनुभूति होती है। यदि हम अपने मन को ‘सीमित संसाधनों के साथ’ जीने के लिए राजी कर लें, तो फिर दुनिया की कोई भी चीज हमें परेशान नहीं कर सकती।
हमारा उद्देश्य अपने विचारों को दबाने का नहीं होना चाहिए, बल्कि हमें धीरे-धीरे और स्वाभाविक रूप से अनावश्यक व व्यर्थ विचारों से खुद को मुक्त करके अपने मन को सांस लेने की खुली जगह देनी है। इस भागती-दौड़ती जिंदगी में ये सारी बातें हमें थोड़ी अवास्तविक और अपनी पहुंच से बाहर लगेंगी, परंतु हमारे विचारों की सादगी हमारे जीवन में दृढ़ता और स्पष्टता लाएगी, जिससे समाधान के अनेक दरवाजे खुल जाएंगे। तो चलिए आज से विचार प्रदूषण में कमी लाने का श्रेष्ठ कार्य करें।

Self-belief checklist

Self-confident people have indestructible self-belief, nothing can take away their feeling of self-worth and they bounce back again and again. You can feel like this. You have all that it takes to go for what you want and to ride the ups and downs that life inevitably brings. No one has a smooth trip but just think how you will feel if you don’t even give yourself a chance to get out there and give things a try!

Self-belief checklist

A person with self-belief:

• Never compares herself with others.
• Knows that she is her own woman and that nobody else can understand her as well as she can.

• Listens to helpful advice and comments but never blindly follows others’ opinions.
• Trusts her instincts and listens to her heart.
• Recognises that she will make mistakes and learns from them and moves on.

• Depends upon her own judgement and always gives herself time to work things through.
• Values rest and relaxation as much as action planning and activity.
• Knows that when she is calm and focused she will make the best decisions.

• Accepts that there will be days when her self-belief is not so strong and will wait until she is feeling more positive before committing herself to any course of action.

When you are high in self-belief you will trust your own thoughts and feelings and will be able to follow through with appropriate action.

Dance your dance while living Stress free

  1. Never stop listening to your own inner voice. – The unhappiest folks are those who care the most about what everyone else thinks – those who let everyone else drown out their own inner voice. So stand strong beside yourself. There’s great freedom in leaving others to their opinions.
  2. Never stop walking comfortably in your own shoes. – If you don’t follow the path others want you to follow they might become irritated. Don’t worry about it. Let them be. It’s their problem, not yours. So many people seem to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but have no clue how to lead their own. So focus on your inner callings and keep paving your own path. Remember that it is more useful to be aware of a single strength or weakness in yourself than to be aware of a thousand strengths and weaknesses in others.
  3. Never stop appreciating the life you’re living right now. – Stop rushing. Breathe. Be where you are. You’re where you’re supposed to be at this very moment. Every experience and step is necessary. (Read The Power of Now.)
  4. Never stop indulging in life’s little daily joys. – Notice what you love, not what you hate. Smile more. Happiness is enjoying the small things in life, all while chasing after the big ones.
  5. Never stop laughing at yourself and your life situations. – All self-misery has its roots in self-pity, and all self-pity is rooted in taking life too seriously. If you take everything too seriously, especially yourself, you’ll wind up fearing every new step you take. Loosen up and laugh it off if you can – especially when things don’t go as planned. People with a good sense of humor have a better sense of life. You grow up the day you have your first real laugh at yourself and your circumstances.
  6. Never stop giving your important relationships a fair chance.– It’s impossible to find someone who will never hurt you, so go for ones worth the pain. And remember, without a little pain, joy wouldn’t feel so good.
  7. Never stop writing your own story, your own way. – When writing the story of your life, never, ever let someone else hold the pen. Make conscious choices every day that align your actions with your values and ambitions. Because the way you live each day is a sentence in the story of your life. Each day you make a choice as to whether the sentence ends with a period, a question mark, or an exclamation point
