Need to be NORMALLY Materialistic


posted on 21st of march, 2010

Ages n' Ages we have been taught by our religions and spiritual gurus to be away from the materialistic world and into our souls. Get away from attachments, desires and just think about god to attain Moksha. For some reason I am realizing that getting materialistic is now become one of the steps towards god. Most of us have become dependent and insanely attached to technology in the digital for and internet which is all virtual. Just some major technical setback or a terrorist attack technically and we all will be unwired.

Our systems, our work, our memory today is all dependent on the machine. I remember how I used to remember everyones phone numbers by heart and when I started using a cellphone I eventually ended...

WOW!!! That was a really good blog! It is so hard, especially because I use the computer so much for college, not to get caught up in it. But real life is much nicer. There's no worse feeling than knowing you spent an entire day that you had free totally on the computer. :(

Thank you for the article!

The BUSYness Perspective


posted on 25th of march, 2010

About 10 years ago, I had an argument with a close friend of mine over the kind of life I was imagining ahead. While talking about career, routine and then personal life together, she was teaching me of how a normal and good life is about working 9 to 5 and then spending time with your family or friends till dinner. Sleep with / without watching a movie and wakeup again the next day to progress with whatever we were doing yesterday. The only thing I agreed with was to sleep and wake up the next day to progress with whatever we were doing yesterday. I didn't like the 9-5 concept or even about the after work time to be spent with family or friends.

I hate this for 2 reasons -

Why should I slot my time for everything...

I think the priorities can keep changing depending on the daily needs,
but that should be left to us to decide (and not dictated by others)

I think you have to make a decision about what you want from your life. Too many people around us have set notions of success. Earn money, get promotions, show off the stuff you bought but have nothing to do with their making (like a car, some watch), try to help other less successful people so that they praise you a lot and tell other people about your success and philanthropy, grow old, make kids and lead them to believe the same, die. I have learnt it is useless to argue with them. Congrats to you for being able to live life on your own terms. Be like this my friend. Never change.
