The other day, I was riding the NYC Subway. When I transferred to the express car, I noticed one car was empty. The time was close to the end of rush hour. At this time, the cars are still half crowded. Usually, when a car is empty it means either the car is dirty, there is no heat, or there is a homeless. So, when I got inside I saw two homeless sleeping. I just stood in front of the homeless and watched how people doubt whether to enter the car after looking at the homeless sleeping. …

New York Giants Quarterback — Eli Manning Around The NFL

I grew up in a country where I never experience players competitiveness or even the caliber of sports competitiveness that I have seen in the US. Despite the amount of money players make in the NFL, this season, I have seen many players in the New York Giants self-motivate themselves, despite playing with a losing record (by the way New York Giants is my team — not being bias here just open-minded with what I’m writing).

Gradually you begin to control your body, mind, and dismantle your bad habits and karma. You become detached from the feelings that arise from the senses. It is the attachment to the senses that gives us suffering. You stay in harmony (neutral) in right and unrighteous situations. There is no more aversion and fear begins to fade away. You see life from a different perspective. Life is you and you realized that all the nightmares played out by the mind is fake because everything is just transitory and not permanent. But what is permanent is your inner silence/source. The source who is watching everything with love and compassion. You see this same source in all human beings. You see that everything is just connected with this ultimate source. And yes the Universe is just you. It is here when you poke at it, that the greatness within you rise. Nothing can’t destroy it. Then the mind just becomes your servant, not the master as what Osho said the mind has been able to conquer all human-beings.
