Global recession – Land Money Maya

Global recession is clouding the whole world. I discuss the land – money myth, which is the main reason for Global recession.

Everybody says, United States goes down, all the major banks closed down, etc. What happened to the money and where is it gone?

Last year my friend purchased a land(tiny bit of land) 100km away from Chennai. He got a loan from XYZ bank for 2 lakhs. Paid the bill to the land and started paying the EMI.

He also ‘advised’ me to get a loan and purchase a land along with him. Fortunately, I was lazy enough to produce the documents for loan processings. Moreover, I am not interested in ‘loan’ amd ‘EMI’.

Soon, he was in dear need of money, trying to sell his land. Nobody was there to purchase it. He approached the brokers and conveyed as ready to reduce the price. His 2 lakhs become 1.5 lakh. Later it become 1 lakh. He kept reducing the selling price.

Suddenly, he realize that his 2 lakh becomes 0(zero). Nobody was there to buy it. But he still paying the EMI to XYZ bank but with hate. Soon, he may stop paying the EMI and ask the bank to take over his land. If he stopped the EMI, the bank’s 2 lakhs and the huge return will be equal to the price of the land – 0 (zero).

The 2 lakh money value of the bank become 0. Like that many 2 lakh or 2 crore will become 0.

The same might be happened in United States. People borrowed loan from banks and invested in land and houses. Billions and Millions have been invested(buried) in realestate. Now the Billions and millions become zero value.

You purchased a land/house for 25 lakhs with a belief that It will grow up to 1 crore in the near future. But suddenly, you realize that your land value kept being reduced rather than growing. It become 10 lakhs. But you have to pay the EMI for 25 lakhs, not for the current value of your 25 lakhs.

It may be little confusing.

Even though your 25 lakh become 10 lakh, you have to pay the EMI/loan for 25 lakh. You try to sell your land at whatever price you get. But nobody purchase it since people expect it to get reduced to few hundreds. Finally, you stop paying the EMI/Loan and bank will take over your land/house. When they try to resell it it, they may get 10 or 5 lakh or not able to sell it. So the bank’s 25 lakh become nothing.

The same is applicable to shares and mutual funds.

Like water evaporates money invested for big return evaporates.

Billions of Billions dollar evaporated. It is like I have bundles and bundles of cash in my locker. Take all and burn the money bundles into ashes. Now I am broke.

Like that, banks invested/burn the billions of billions of cash into land through massive payout to individuals as loan. Now the money becomes sand and concretes without any monetary value.

Money saved will be spent. Money invested will be evaporated. Money spent will be floating in cycle. Saving or investment is a stagnation, no use to anybody. Let the money float.

If we do not have fear of future, we will not save. If we do not greed for future, we will not invest. It is the fear of future and greed bring the global recession.

Guilty Conscious

Guilty conscious is a conflict between our conscious and actions. To get rid off guilty feeling we have to accept the conflict.

We have our expectation about our self. We maintain a sort of self-image and project it to society. Normally our actions are within conscious framework.

When our actions are not matching with the discipline of our conscious, we start having guilty conscious or self anger, and all sort of self-killing.

We have to accept the illusion called conscious. If we try we can change our conscious. If we try we can stop changing our conscious.

Our conscious changes without our awareness and effort. Out internal and external experiences, lessons in life shapes our conscious. If we have awareness about conscious, we can regulate it.

Sometimes, out actions are based on our emotions and hidden stresses. Moreover we are human – an animal with reasoning and logical skill. We have animal/biological urges.

Depending upon our situation and stress level, we may succumb to our emotions and urges. Socially successful people are good at handling their emotions.

Succumbing to emotions, committing mistakes are part of life. As long as we accept our true nature, we will not have guilty conscious. Accept your weakness and strength. Accept your bad and good.

Be aware, we have created our self image and social image. Do not give much importance to it.

Whatever self-image we maintain, we will have hungry. If somebody does wrong to us, we will have angry.

The opportunity to express our emotions will depend on situation, our confidence level, and various context.

If our emotions are not worthy of conscious we are in, we may try to suppress it or wait for an opportunity to express it without spoiling our social/self image.

If the emotions are strong as stress it does not care the conscious/self image. It find its way to ventilate. Later, we will have guilty conscious for it.

Sometime, other people try to inject guilty feeling. Never never never succumb to suck trap. Guilty conscious by any source is meaning less.

If you accept yourself exactly as you are, you will realize that it is foolish to have guilty feeling for any thing.

We should not stick to your social/self image too much. Self image is subjective to the ‘consistent situation’ we repeatedly have.
We should not feel for our actions if it violates our conscious.

Guilty conscious is a self torture. It is a semi suicide. Accept the difference between how do you like to be and how you are actually. How others are expecting you to be and how you can be. You will never have guilty conscious.

You can not satisfy everybody, but you can satisfy yourself.

Surrender to your Immediate Boss to avoid Office Politics

There is a strategy to escape from ‘office politics’. No loss, no tension. You are safe and secure forever. Surrender to your immediate boss.

Having good rapport with your immediate boss is the easiest way to get your niche in office politics.

Never try to voluntarily get close to the boss of your immediate boss. It may provacate irritation and fear to your immediate boss. Soon he will execute harassment. If he allows you to create rapport with his boss, you are free to establish relationship with his boss.

There may be competitors to your immediate boss. Never never never get close to those people. They may have equal designation with your boss or having race with your immediate boss. Each one is trying to put down another. Avoid getting into cross fire. Never get close to ‘enemy’ of your immediate boss. This is worst mistake.

Show your ‘Sub-Ordination’ explicitly in your attitude and body language. Let others understand as you are in side of your boss because of his designation. So none will disturb you.

Remember, no other person can harm you like your immediate boss. No other person can help you like your immediate boss. He is the one who can either remove or give you peace in your work place.

At the same time be detached. Keep distance from your boss. You should be able to say ‘No’ when you have to say ‘no’. Otherwise, your ego will get wounded.

When your ego get wounded by your boss, you start to hate him. You will develop negative feelings. Soon, your negative feelings will be reflected in your speech and actions. Your relationship with your boss will get friction depending upon the maturity level of your boss.

Good immediate boss never put down the ego of their subordinates. They must have realized that to be successful they need the support of their subordinates as a team. He has to understand everyone’s need and what satisfy them. Some seek money, some seek respect, some seek comfort. Successful boss provides what every subordinate is expecting. Even they do not express it, he has to find and provide.

Be detached from your Boss. You may be promoted or changed. Your immediate supervisor will be changed. Change your ‘sub-ordination’ to your new immediate boss. Don’t repel your new boss. Show your subordination to the designation, but not for the human being who is holding it.

The thumb rule is establish good relationship with your immediate boss. You will have peace.

Reasons for Job Stress

Working hard or working long are not the reasons for stress especially job stress. Stress is a psychological response than physical. Food habit also plays role in stress.

Everything is mindset. You are working with a lady, beautiful lady. You are attracted by her and she too attracted towards you. Spending time with her – speaking, seeing, and everything is a great pleasure to you. You don’t feel for working long now. You like to work long. If the office is closed sharply by 6pm, you will feel it is too early to close.

You will not have job stress now. Job is a pleasure now. You love to be in the office rather than spending time outside. You work long without minding working long. You mind only the beauty where you get hooked.

Soon either you or the lady may be fired or transfered from the office due to office politics. Anyway, there is no job stress till you spend time with the woman.

You are sound financially. You have family support. You are well off. Job is not a mandatory in your life. Job will not be pressure to you. You will not have Job Stress. Job is one more activity in your life.

If your job is what you like to do, you will not have stress even you work for 24hrs a day.

You will not have job stress if you are able to lead your life without a need to work.

You will not have job stress if you are able to say ‘NO’ when you like to say no.

If you are confident and aware that loosing the current job is not going to affect your life anyway, you will not have job stress.

Job will not be a pressure to you when you are able to unload ‘Job Conscious’ from your mind. Fill your mind with what is interesting to you. What to fill your mind is up to you. Fill good things. Best is to fill by God’s wisdom.

People who meet one or more features discussed above are successful in both personal and career life. They do not have job stress. They have high productivity. Professional management adorns and absorbs such people.

Fire is hot. Anyone touches the fire will feel hot. This is common to all. Fire will not respond differently depending upon individuals. You, me, and everybody feels the same when we touch fire. If job gives stress, everybody working in your office should have stress, but only few are stressed out. All the people working are not getting stress. You can see in your office that many/few are enjoying their job, no stress, no tension.

Job Stress is subjective. It depends upon how you interpretate the concept ‘JOB’. Changing the bosses, companies on behalf of job stress will not give any result. It is your mind-set and attitude create stress. Wherever you go, you will have the same unless you change. It is you have to change.

Ignore the Office Politics to Reduce Job Stress

Office politics and work stress are closely related. Ignore the office politics to reduce stress. It is not the workload alone which is the reason for stress. It is our mindset and smouldering negative emotions, which create stress.

Your stress level mounts when your mind is obsessed and got feverish with negative thoughts or negative emotions. Work load is not an issue if you are happy and you have sense of well being.

You will have detractors if you are skillful and talented. You will have competitors, you will earn jealous of others. The existing employees or senior by date of joining have fear or jealous at you. You will have tough time if you are smarter than your immediate boss or superior. You will be insulted directly or indirectly. What they want is to get you out of the company and let them be on top always.

Your relationship stress mounts if you react to the above scenario negatively.


My friend is a programmer. He is well talented with high productivity. He was a quickly promoted to higher levels. The programmers working in the company who are senior to him by date of joining get jealous at him. They represent the management. They insulted him directly or indirectly. They always teased him, put him down many times.

Those who are close to management or acting as immediate boss or superior expect others to be meek to them in all the aspects. Those who are better than them will be tossed like anything.

My friend who had got friction with such people. He started to develop angry feelings, and negative emotions. He did not fight with them explicitly. He kept ‘bottle necking’ his angriness and negative feelings. Even after office hours, he was thinking about them. He was always having the angry feelings and frustrations. His head was overloaded with angry thoughts. He was obsessed or got feverish with his detractors thoughts.

He did not think about his girl friend, his parents, God, brothers and sisters, and friends. But, kept thinking about his competitors.

His productivity in the work got reduced slowly. He was not able to concentrate in his work. His productivity reduced due to wasting his mental strength by having a non-stop ego friction. His workload was also increased. All led him to severe stress and depression problems.

He met me and discussed his problem. He said that he was not able to concentrate in his work. He had some health problems. He suddenly started speaking about his office detractors. He was about to quit the company due to these problems.

I understood his real problem. I explained the real reason for his mental tiredness and lack of concentration. I suggested him to stop thinking about his office detractors. I told him that he would get back his mental strength if he ignores their ill treatment, if he forgives them.

Company pays him, he does not need to bother about others. I told him few tips for how to ignore his detractors.

Office politics is everywhere. Learn to ignore it. Just concentrate on your work. As long as, company is paying you and the workload is bearable ignore other things.

My friend realized the his problem. It is not the work load or his immediate boss which give him stress. It is the way how he responded, which actually give stress to him.

My friend develops pity at his detractors in the office. He is happy that he is skilled enough to earn jealous of other people. He thinks about what he likes and who like him. His angriness disappears. He regains his form and productivity. He is rising to further higher level in his career.

Slowly and steadily, his detractors skip him. They will find another rising star for screwing. My friend is happy and healthy both mentally and physically.

Global warming is a natural cause

Today, environmentalists are creating awareness about Global warming and Green house effect. Global warming, they say, may lead to extinction of living beings from earth; melting of ice berg causing cutting of land size leading to lot of socio-political and cultural issues.

What is the cause for Global warming? Scientists say many things as the reasons – Industrialization, de-forestation, smoke from the vehicles/ industries, etc. Whatever things, causing to increased carbon monoxide level in atmosphere, will increase warming. Ozone depletion, gases like chloro-fluoro-carbons from air conditioner and fridge are also causes for Global warming. Even in agriculture, Paddy (rice) fields produce more methane gas equivalent to industries.

In overall, environmentalists and scientists say, global warming is because of human activities and emphasize for change of this.

O.K. Now, let us argue the other way. Do you think, stopping the industrialization and going back to the primitive life will protect the earth from global warming? No, I emphatically deny this argument. It may postpone the global warming but it can not stop the death of earth (Eradicating the Atmosphere which supports to rise of living beings). We may postpone the life of earth for a few more generations of human beings. But, end of earth is inevitable.

We are aware that so many civilizations lived in the past. They attained cultural and scientific peak of their time. They believed, they were the best like we believe now. They reached the peak for some time and eradicated from the earth. They could not survive till date. The reason may be anything. Dinosaur roamed on the earth for some period. They did not industrialize their life. They did not create smoke. You could have imagined such an amount trees and plants they consumed which is much more than what consumed by human. Human has the awareness to re-plant the tree. Even though dinosaur lived in co-ordination with nature, they were eradicated. The reason may be anything.

Creation and destruction is a natural. We can not stop creation as well as destruction. The earth is created and will be destructed; the sun is created and it will also be destructed. Even, going back to barbarian or stone age civilization, we can not stop the earth from extinction. Scientists have also discovered the life cycle of Sun. Sun will grow bigger from its current size during its next stage of growth. When sun reaches its next stage, the place where earth floats, will be a part inside the sun, which means – the sun will swallow the ashes of earth. If sun slightly increases its diameter, then the earth may be burnt into ashes.

Sun may get its size altered. Sun might have lived half of its life span. Please, be aware, that sun, earth, star or anything in the universe for that matter, will have their own life cycle. Our scientist are yet to start their research in the inner side of the sun. Global warming, in my opinion, may be a cause due to changes in sun and not of human activities. Had the sun reduced its intensity, then, the term -GLOBAL WARMING might have got its burial in the dictionary long back.

Global warming may be a natural cause in the life cycle of earth or solar system.
Everything has got a life cycle from its creation to destruction. Global warming may be part of earth life cycle in the solar system.

Struggle for Being Fit

Being fit is a big challenge nowadays. The life style demands more from us. 24 hours a day is not enough. Finding time for exercise or any activity for being fit is difficult. You need to catch the cab or bus in the early morning and late night returning only to sleep.

Somebody knows the time as when they have to start from their home in the morning, but do not know when they will finish up the evening. No definite idea about end of day closing time.

In this busy life style, it is a struggle to be fit. Even we have to spend time with ‘Traffic Jam’ and ‘everlasting mobile calls’ , but not for being fit.

But we have to succeed in our struggle for being fit.

Walk as much you can. Try to have a ‘walk’ in your everyday journey to workplace. Avoid using phone(intercom) within the office as much as you can. Just walk to the person’s place to whom you have to talk.

Bargain with your employer as you need a flexible time either in the morning or evening. Morning is always the best choice for both you and your employer.

Nobody knows the schedule in the evening. There are many cases you will get the task between 5pm and 6pm. Many boss’s keep you busy from the evening.

Get a flexible morning reporting hours, have time for exercise at least for 30 minutes.

It is better find out any Gym near by your work place, which you can easily access from office. The best practice is find out a niche for your workout near by your office.

The best way to do what you like to do is, mingle with people who have same interest in your day to day life or create interest with the people you share your day.

Find out interested colleagues and form a group. Without hesitation, initiate this. Then you will be automatically have the habit of doing exercise.

At least once a week have a swimming session for couple of hours. Try to avoid working in companies which has six working days per week.

You may or may not be doing exercise in your teen ages and college time. But once you begin your career or if you are in your middle ages you must begin the activities to be being fit. It is a great challenge but the struggle for being fit must be succeeded.

Life of Addiction – Thoughts and Attitude

Many of our thought process and ‘day dreams’ are recurring in our life. We are habituated to have such ‘day dream’ and thought flow. It is a sort of ‘addiction’ to the psychological responses or behaviors. This type of psychological addiction is very subtle. It is not very easy to understand why we behave in such way.

We are slaves to our addiction. We have to attain freedom from our addictions.

Some people get tense always. Some people are always cool. Some people are always feeling inferior and some always feeling superior. All are addiction to respective mood. If you are addicted to get angry, then you get angry for anything and everything. A set of psychological addictions becomes our character and attitude. They are our immediate responses to evens in life.

People who are positive, always positive in all the situation. People who are negative are always negative in all the situation. Some people find problems in the workplace and change the office and keep changing the offices for the same reason again and again. They may be addicted to find problems in their work place.

Some people are always happy and some are always sad. Some people are always having depression without any reason. All because of addiction.

Normally, smoking and drinking are defined as addiction. But 99% of our character and attitude are addictions. We get addicted to behave in such way.

All types of addiction are genetic or we developed with or without our awareness.

Certain addictions can improve our life. Certain addictions can ruin our life. Human is empowered with get the control over all types of addiction. We can create new addiction and erase old addiction. Awareness or conscious about your consciousness can control your addiction. It is like watching yourself by you.

Phobia is also an addiction in some cases, it can be eliminated by conscious effort.

Please be aware that any activity which you keep doing or repeating without valid reason or sufficient emotional thrust; means you are addicted to that activity.

Psychologically induced high blood pressure is normally life long. Because the person gets addicted to the mood or mental state which increase blood pressure and pulse rate. Until removing the addiction to that ‘mood’ medicines are useless. If the person remove the addiction to that mood, within a fraction of second blood pressure will come to normal. This is not a medical miracle. Just having control over your addictions of mood.

Some people get addicted to be cool, calm, and relaxed. Whatever happen they can sleep well. Masturbation is mainly due to addiction, except at the early stage.

Addiction is not wrong. If you do not addicted to the sound of your name, then you will not identify you with your name. Depending upon the impact of addiction over you, your surrounding and your life, it can be termed as good or bad. If the addiction improves your life continue it, otherwise remove it. Removing is nothing but stop involving in that activity. Good or bad which you have to decide.

After starting my blog, slowly a new addiction developed in me. That is addiction to ‘blogging’. I try to blog when I am not moved by anything to write. Some impulse is pushing me to write about something. I come to aware that I am addicted to Blogging. I decided to remove it.

I started to blog for expressing about something which stirs me. Something which gives feast to my analytical skills. Of Course. I am proud being addicted to analyze. This addiction with limitation (not too much) improves my life and career too.

Blogging gives satisfaction to me. Initially, I blog when I can and what I like at my comfort. Later I come to know that, revenue can be generated from blogs through advertisement programs, which entice me to ‘keep blogging’. Now it is getting a stage of addiction.

I do not want my blog to be filled by ‘Vacum’ content. I want my blog to be having something stirs my feelings and analytical skill. So I stop looking my blog every day. Whenever I am about to blog something, I postpone it for two or three days. If I still have the trust after three days then I write. I gave low priority to blogging activity. Slowly the blogging conscious is removed. Often I give break to blogging activity. Now I am free from blogging addiction.

Our life is just a collection of our addictions.

Tranquility and Beauty in Chennai Beach

Chennai has the second longest and beautiful beach in the world. I love going to beach. Long sand beach, green parks, and walking pavements are adding comfort to the place. Steel and cement chairs for sitting give relaxation to you. Ships on the long view are super.

The cool breeze make you relax. It makes you energetic, chills your body. It kisses all over your body. The more benefitter is lungs. The breeze is pollution free.

Laying down on the sand or sitting on the chair or walking slowly over the pavements and inhaling the cool breeze make you realize that it is still the ultimate pleasures are in nature.

All over the sea shore boats are parked by fisherman. It is also a sitting place to enjoy. Goto the tip of the beach. Fill your eyes with endless ocean in front of you. Feel that you are nothing in front of the ocean. Throw your pride, ego, success, failure and everything overlapping your soul, into sea. Wash your soul and make it clean.

Then look above your head. Sea the endless blue sky. Feel the vastness of the space and universe. You are the tiniest of all tiny objects. Even a dust in the universe is vaster than earth. The importance you give to this life and you are meaningless. Realize your true nature at beach. The endless sea and vast sky can help you feel the breathing bags just a bubble.

Heaven will come to earth on full moon day. Goto beach on fullmoon day. Look at the east. Woman’s beautiful forehead is dotted with red color kumkum. Like that dark sky has white dot moon. Surface of the sea is shining like silver coated. Beach on full moon day is able to compare with ‘original heaven’ if really exists.

Ships anchored near sea side will be light up fully. They looks like tiny ‘Island of lights’. The Chennai harbor after sunset looks like constellation of stars. The light house acts as a star of earth for those who try to visit earth. May be aliens. Pole star to reach earth.

The ultimate comfort and relaxation is at the laps of nature. During weekend go to beach. Enjoy the beauty and tranquility in Chennai beach.

Blogging Becomes Stress

Bloggers are booming. Blogging open the way for everybody to write. You do not need to be high-educated scholar to blog. With average language skills able to describe that’s all. It is free hand writing.

But this Blogging becomes stress when you blog for money. You may hear about stories of Successful Bloggers. Blogs can be monetirised. All this can make you believe that blogging can be an easy way for earning money.

This is not true. If you blog for money, you will loose writer’s spirit. You skip from blogger’s attitude. Successful bloggers blog when they like to blog. But bloggers for money try to blog all the time; they like to fill their blog with anything and everything. It is not the quantity but quality makes the different.

You will keep searching for topic, and ideas to blog. Instead of writing about something, which moves and stirs you, you try to write a diary. Sometimes you start to steal. You use your office hours to blogging. You hate to do office works. You hate to spend time with your friends and family. You always want to keep writing or filling your blog. You have urgency or hurry to get your blog filled. Your mind will be obsessed with blogging.

You dream that soon you are going to earn huge money from your blog. So you rush to get your blog filled. Each and every second something come to your mind to fill your blog.

This is a sort of stress called Blogging Stress. When you blog casually when you can and what you like, it is a hobby. You can enjoy blogging hobby. True bloggers do not expect any monetary return from their hobby. They expect a sense of satisfaction and enjoyment. But when you see blogging is a business opportunity you loose the pleasure of blogging. Blogging becomes a work to you.

You schedule your timing to blog. You pressurize you to write blog without motivation. Even your creativity is empty; you do not wait for it to come up. You do not wait for something to blossom in you to write. All this because you see blogging is a source to make money through advertisement. Sooner or later you will get depression by becoming forceful blogging machine. Too much of anything is bad, including blogging.

True bloggers do not work for blogging. They write when something move their spirit. They blog when they like to share something. Like flower blossoming, blog blossoms to them. They do not fix time frame or join the race of filling their blog. In a spontaneous moment they start writing.

If you see blogging as a source of financial freedom, then sooner or later you will develop blogging stress. If you have blogging stress please stop blogging. Stop vomiting many things instead of writing few things with creativity.

Keep blogging, if you have the true blogging spirit. Otherwise you will be wasting your resources like time, money and energy.

There is no true financial freedom. Even if you start earning from your blog, you are not secure financially. Somebody may hack your site or your hosting server may go down or your advertiser (pay per click) company may change their policy. So blog if you have the spirit of blogging, please do not let the blogging be one more factor for stress.

Let the blogging be a hobby and pleasure, not a business until it really starts yielding business.
