Mainstream.. I love it.. i hate it.. i love it.. i hate it..

Mainstream places are safe. But boring too..
Places that aren't polluted by humans are risky.. But rife with adventure..
Mainstream has consumed me.. Everywhere in life.. In what to think.. how to think.. what topics to discuss with friends.. the political jokes.. the movies.. the tv shows..
There is little room for me to think new thoughts.. 
thoughts and epiphanies that come to me.. while in a surreal moment while watching a movie.. at some peak moments of meditation.. while meeting a stranger and talking to him.. while i see a facebook update from a friend who is doing something very non-mainstream.. 
All those epiphanies and legendary thoughts die .. the moment i get back to my life.. my life filled with mainstream.. thorugh TV, friends, family, and every thing that is constant in life.. that i meet everyday... 

I don't complain though..
Mainstream gives me a sense of comfort.. 
To create really solid habits.. 
To create really solid character..
is my guidance when I delve into the unknown..
into the wild..
into the non-mainstream..
While i take the road less traveled by..
While i fight back in places when nobody around me..

So as much as i hate mainstream.. for when i stick to it.. i am only mediocre at best..
It allows me to be okay with mediocrity in certain areas of life.. 
and i go ahead and strive for excellence in other areas...

The lightman's Affirmations Vs the Darkman's Excuses

We all have heard the saying.. we are our own worst enemy. There are 2 parts of us. One is the person who thinks possibility ~ the dreamer ~ the angel ~ the optimist ~ the light (wo)man
The other is the one who come up with excuses ~ the pessimist ~ the wuss ~ the lazy ~ the demon ~ the procrastinator ~ the reality-check-giver ~ the dark (wo)man

The more we align with the light, the more we are motivated towards taking action. Even if we fail, we pick ourselves up and move towards taking action. we see the light in any situation. 
The more we align with the dark, we tend to give up, we lose sight of our goal, we stop dreaming, we loathe our selves, we get into addictions to run away from selves, we don't have the courage to face the facts and align with the truth.

Every time we want to have something, we get stopped because of those excuses made my the darkman. 

Replace the dark man's excuses with light man's affirmations. It is pretty fun actually when you try this in uncomfortable situations. start small and then move on to the big things. Experiment and let me know how it works out for you.

For Excuses
It will be difficult I have the ability to accomplish any task that i set my mind to do.. with ease and comfort
Its going to be risky Being myself involves no risk. It is my ultimate truth and i live fearlessly.
It will take a long time I have infinite patience when it comes to fulfilling my own destiny
There will be family drama I would rather be loathed for who i am than loved for who i am not
I dont deserve it I am a divine creation. A piece of god. How could i be undeserving?  
Its not my nature My essential nature is perfect and faultless. It is to this nature that i return to
I cant afford it I am connected to an unlimited source of abundance
No one will help me The right circumstances and right people are already here and will show up on time
It has never happened before I am open and willing to attract all that i desire beginning here and now
I am not strong enough i have access to unlimited assistance. My strength comes from my connection to my source
I am not smart enough I'm a creation of the divine mind, all is perfect and I am a genius on my own right.
I am too old/ I am not old enough I am an infinite being. the age of my body has no bearing on what i do or who I am.
The rules wont let me I live my life according to divine rules
Its too big I think only about what i can do now. By thinking small i accomplish great things.
I don't have the energy I feel passionately about my life. And this passion fills me with excitement and energy
Its my family history I live in the present moment by being grateful for all my life experiences as a child
I'm too busy As i unclutter my life, i free myself to answer the calling of my soul
I'm too scared I can accomplish anything I put my mind to because i know I'm never alone.
Thanks to Dr. Wayne Dyer for this!

What the hell is spirituality anyways?

I was thinking.. what the hell is spirituality anyways.. As i got lost into the question, these words started coming out of me..

Don't just read this. Some of them are "deep and profound" and some of them are just stupid.
Rather, vibrate with this. Then you will know.. It is not philosophy.. It is the truth that you also know from deep within.

Spirituality is..
The pursuit of truth. Truth is very difficult to express in words alone. It is a knowing. A sense of clarity. A 360 degree understanding.
A total knowing. A sense of completion.

Pursuing the ultimate truth is spirituality. The ultimate truth of reality ~Of the being ~Of the self ~ of The identities ~Of the patterns ~Of the dharmas ~Of the karmas.

Spirituality is

The alignment with reality
The journey to reach the ultimate self
To learn your deep BELIEFS and mercilessly squash them
To laugh at yourself
The technology to access your dormant brain powers
The technology to be loving despite of the receiver's state
Ability to access the invisible spirit within
To be extremely adventurous and explore the inner and outer world
To acknowledge that you are afraid when you are afraid.
To demand from GOD as he is yours
To serve GOD as he is yours
To acknowledge there is no GOD, its all you
To acknowledge there is no you, its all GOD
To be completely ok with the label "Crazy"
To powerfully integrate the right and left brain
To find courage to express yourself
To have the ambition to know SHIVA.. in truest self.. to make him your personal servant.. to make him your personal master
To acknowledge that miracle exists and start performing them
To smile, not for the external.. but because of the internal joy
To dance without alcohol, again.. because you cant help it
To live.. not just physically
To cry without the fear of being judged
To write
To Play guitar
To talk your mind
To explore the limits of your body, mind without fear
To be perfectly fine when you are afraid
To breathe
To attempt meditation practices
To allow meditation to happen
To stand against incompetence, with love
To be able to sit still at will just because you decided to do so
To fail
To attempt again even if it is failure for 25000 times
To have super depth in your commitments
To study astro physics
To be Free even when you are tired
To compete, not against another, but with your self
To have unlimited curiosity
To realize (every time) suffering is self created, and enjoy freeing from it
To just sit, to intimately be with the moment
To explore the potential of the self (the brain, the body, etc)
To atleast start the journey of it.
I can go on..
