is ‘The Secret’ still a secret?

August 21, 2011

i have found Law of Attraction as mentioned in ‘The Secret‘ very interesting … in fact, i think it is another way of few beliefs i already had (and i have seen it operational in several of my personal experiences)

one of the things it emphasizes is – focus on what you want and not on something you want to get rid of 🙂 …

What I feel is – despite of it being talked about by so many people for 5 odd years, ‘The Secret’ seems to be still a secret to few 😦

And, why do I feel so? I recently noticed that ‘The world’s most popular goals’ on 43Things has ‘lose weight’ on number 1 position – and ‘get in shape’ way down at 31 … so, clearly the website’s user are not utilising ‘The Law of Attraction’ to its full potential.

what is your story?


life is growth

May 17, 2011

everything in this universe comes from just one substance/source – (some call it the Almighty) … and the inherent nature of that substance is growth … it finds out ways from the universal abundance to express its inherent desire for growth … and remember – what one may consider as limitations – is just appearance/perception but TRUTH is limitless!

the fullest expression of life/growth is visible all around us – one such view that reassured my faith in ‘everything is possible’ is depicted in the picture below – grass growing amidst the ultimate adversity – it is peeping from the crack of an asphalt road 🙂

what are your views on your so called obstacles, now?

and – it works again! :)

Yes! I am very happy 😀 🙂

Blackberry’s latest Tablet – Playbook – gets attracted

And – I enjoyed the whole process – of programming a game/app to make it happen.

Now, eagerly waiting for it to appear in my mailbox.

PS: Here is my FREE PlayBook app – … how do you find it? Please share your comments.

towards more light

December 22, 2010

I had once talked about how changing vantage point can be ‘enlightening’

At times, we – mere mortals – easily get stuck in ‘reality trap’ and find it tough to change ‘vantage point’. I recently thought it should be pretty simple though …

Instead of ‘burying’ your head in ‘negativity’ & ‘darkness’ (like a ‘damsel in distress’ in the above picture), simply ‘get up’ and start ‘facing the abundance of light’ …

or put it other way – start counting your blessings so that your focus on positivity will start giving it even more power to expand.

Even if it is repeat, I would like to write the quote ‘fake it, fake it, fake it – till you make it (happen)’ and I feel it applies everywhere including ‘happiness’

🙂 HAPPY HOLIDAYS you all 🙂

(ha ha hi hi) ho ho ho

March 4, 2010

It maybe unbelievable – but its true!

I will be running the Boston Marathon on 19th April 2010!

It is The Secret behind all the miracles 🙂 I am truly grateful to the almighty!

Kindly support my journey to Boston – keep watching this space for more. Thank You!

Miracles galore!

September 30, 2009

We all want to see miracles – especially when we feel ‘we are stuck’ … but we ‘miss’ realizing inumerable ‘miracles’ that are happening every moment all over around us … maybe because ‘miracles’ are too common-place 🙂

And it is true – there are 6 billion+ homo sapiens sapiens on this planet earth! And then we have flora & fauna in multiples of that number! Aren’t they all living miracles ?!

I would like to quote a short article I had read on 

One of the famous sufi, Rabia, once while cooking realized she did not have onions. She is supposed to have said – “I want onion” and there was spring of onion that fell from the sky. Seeing this people said, this is a miracle.

Rabia said, if that is miracle what is the fact that god created onion shops for us to get onions.

I am sure if we rethink our definition of ‘miracle’ we would be able to feel lot more ‘grateful’ 🙂

Lesson for life … from the elevator?

August 31, 2009


It has been long that I have shared some ‘learnings’ from observing things around me in the daily routine … so, here goes one 🙂

I noticed that people in our multi-storeyed building often delay themselves (and others) because of not knowing how to use the elevator keys … I would like to call them people who need ‘elevator training’ …

If such a person wants to go downstairs (while waiting on floor number 5) – instead of simply pressing the ‘down’ button, he/she would first find out the floor on which the elevator is currently located and when it happens to be on a lower floor (say 1), he/she would press the ‘up’ button (assuming the button is meant to tell the ‘elevator’ the direction in which it should start moving so that he/she can jump in) …

Those who are ‘elevator trained’ and those who have been ‘delayed’ on their way home (due to such an act) would be able to easily relate to this.

Huh!? Where is the ‘lesson for life’ ? I guess, many times in our life we operate in similar fashion — we choose our actions based on the then situation … should not we instead be taking steps based on where we want to go?

[I liked one of the statements made in ‘The Secret’ – what we are (ie our current realities) is – what we were (means the result of our past thoughts and actions) … so, we can start to change our reality without acting out of what the current situation is]

It is ‘attracted’ again!

January 10, 2009

I am not sure how many uttered a ‘wow’ on the power of Law of Attraction as suspected in my previous post

If you are still in doubt, let me tell you this – it gets ‘attracted’ again!!! Yes, the ‘Hot Air Balloon’ comes to Gurgaon (probably for the first time; atleast in the recent history) on 10 Jan!

There were so many challenges in making this dream come true … but there were even more ‘inspired thoughts’ in action behind the scenes of this ‘miracle’.

Stay tuned for some pictures of the day!

Go ahead and attract what you want – Your wish is the command of the Universe 🙂

PS: You guessed it right – I prefer ‘flying’ to RUN 😀 … and therefore practice for the big day is not what I wanted it to be … but stiil, I am all set and with the experience of my 1st half-marathon I know it will be a cake-walk on 18th Jan … See you MUMBAI!

is this ‘The Secret’ in action before i knew it?

December 10, 2008


I have mentioned earlier that I will some day share my views on ‘The Secret’ Law of Attraction … so, here comes my story of ‘The Secret’ – In action; before I even heard about the book.

I strongly feel – whether you call it ‘The Secret’ Law of Attraction OR Power of Subconcious Mind OR Positive Intentions OR whatever – there is definitely truth in ‘you are the creator of your destiny’ saying

In my college days, I was highly influenced by a Gujarati book ‘Manvi na man’ (meaning ‘Minds of Humans’) or ‘Tough Times Never Last But Tough People Do’ or works of Swami Vivekananda … And I have seen many things come my way – just by the power of thoughts … Some may consider few instances as mere coincidence or even ‘craziness’ of a ‘mungerilal’ but I do not have problem in being ‘crazy’ if it brings positive results to me!

Moreover, the one particular instance that I am going to share here is about attracting ‘something so huge’ that even skeptics would want to think about it … Let me now jump to the actual story –

I was fascinated by a (Gujarati) Science magazine for children (Safari) … and one piece on hot-air ballooning made me dreaming about ‘how nice it would be to experience a ride in one such vessel?’ … I do not recall the exact time lag between the day I read about it and the day I saw a small note (hidden in some corner) in a local newspaper saying – ‘Hot-Air balloon comes to city to provide joy ride to college students’ but it was definitely soon!

I was already on cloud nine and grabbed the opportunity by reaching the venue on next morning (a Sunday) … I reached near the place in public transport and was happily surprised to see a classmate ‘waiting’ on his scooter just as I stepped down the local city bus. Why I consider it a ‘blessing in disguise’ today? Because I did not know him well enough – neither do I recollect his face (and nor did I know his name even then) – but I believe he was there (while the ‘universe’ was re-arranging itself to ‘attract’ the balloon ride) for me! He said he too come there to enjoy the joy ride of a hot-air balloon and I hopped on his vehicle to reach the University campus at the place mentioned in the advert.

Reaching there, we figured out that the information was sent out to all colleges well in advance and that students who had a document signed by the Principal (Head) of their respective college will only be considered for the ride. However, someone was kind enough to mention that we can be included if we can get the said document signed by our College Principal (then and there on the early Sunday morning). Do you now get that why I mentioned my so-called friend as a boon? Yes, he had the two-wheeler – and he even knew where the residence of Principal wa – and we were soon back at the venue with the required documentation (duely signed by the Head of our College)! 🙂 BUT, only to hear that the ride has been postponed to next day – due to bad weather. 😦

If the balloon had come to my city then how can I not take the pains of trying for the ‘joy ride’ again on next day? I reached the place on time again (in local city bus) but it was the same story – the ride was postponed once again – due to bad weather.

I do not know for how many days I kept on trying. They even changed the venue in the process (and I think I had also hurt one of the arms in the meantime). BUT, I finally enjoyed the ‘ultimate joy ride in a hot-air balloon – right in my city – free of cost!’. Now, I would definitely like to call it ‘The Secret – In action, even before I heard about it’ – I had attracted the hot-air balloon to my city!

I truly believe the vast universe is like a genie which constantly keeps whispering ‘Your wish is my command!’ – Go ahead and ASK … Don’t be shy or do not feel limited in what you can attract! ENJOY!

(Are you really surprised to know that my dear friend did not show up ever after the first day – the only time when I needed his help?!)
