Why Why Why ???

What you are doing doesn’t matter…

Why you are doing it – will decide the quality of your life and your well being in the years to come …

Yesterday morning I had gone for my walk as usual and am always amazed at the beauty of nature and the peace and serenity of the mornings. Am sharing a few pics of the sun rise, taken within 5-7 minutes from different points of my walk.

When I was walking I crossed many people coming for their yoga class. Yoga is a divine word : Meaning union with God but unfortunately it is used so loosely now for physical fitness☺️ Physical fitness is so important but is a tiny subset of Yoga System, taught by sage Patanjali.

I saw many of them – young and not so young, males and females; thin and fat and very fat. And I was wondering why are they here? What would they be looking for? And all of a sudden I remembered my father and had a hearty laugh πŸ˜‚ : A few decades back he used to visit us often in New Delhi and would go to the nearby park, many a morning and evening. One day he came back and commented in : I have been seeing these ladies for years; the fat ones are still fat and the slim ones still slim. I wonder why they keep running around πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‚

Yes, it doesn’t matter what you are doing. What matters is : Why.

Are you doing it to look great and to hear wows ! What figure !!

Are you doing it to remain fit?

Are you doing it lose weight?

Are you worried about your future, who will look after you if you are sick and old?

Are you doing it to remain healthy so that you can sit longer for meditation and communion with God?

Why? Why ? Why?

And this applies to whether you are a teacher, a lawyer, an architect, engineer or doctor or an office clerk; or a blogger ….

It is not that What is not important; the Why is much much more so ….

Q : Why are you doing What you are doing?

Mornings are mine ..❀️

  1. Great time in the morning Ashok. I agree that we need to put the “why” into what we choose to do. We need a clear purpose, otherwise we are like the people your father witnessed at the park.

  2. Awesome Marta. Dancing itself is beautiful yoga πŸ’ƒπŸ»
    Meditation- Single cure for all human suffering

  3. A set of highly philosophical questions about our existence accompanied with beautiful photos. I think yoga works beautifully as relaxation in our superstressful lives. I have always been taking dancing lessons in my life. My current teacher is also a yoga one, so when we start warming up and stretching our limbs before rehearsing dance steps and choreographies, we do yoga. I love it! It is both physical and spiritual, yes. If those women still remain fat, at least, they do not get fatter, and it is a lovely group of people doing something good, not killing each other.

  4. I’m sure it was a great blessing and it’s obvious from the person you are 😊
    Now the records is 71 hours unfortunately πŸ˜• too bad

  5. Yes he was Huguette. We were blessed to have a wise father and a loving mother. They were together for 71 years 😍

  6. Your father sounds a very wise and honest man 😁
    Thank you so much and the pleasure is all mine πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ»

  7. Thank you so much Huguette. It is always a pleasure to interact with you.
    One day a friend of my father met him in the market and asked my father – how is life? My father replied – Sad and funny 😁
    You too my friend – enjoy the weekend πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

  8. Great question and great pictures! So wise and funny at the same time πŸ‘πŸ˜Š hope we will be able to answer this question
    Enjoy the weekend 😊

  9. Forgive us my Lord for we know not what we do. And give us Wisdom to do the right thing at the right time.
    Thank you so much Yernasia for these beautiful insights

  10. That is awesome Narine. If passion and love are driving any activity it will always blossom.
    Thank you for going through the post

  11. That is the whole point my dear : so many times we don’t ask ourselves Why and remain in the rat race. To each his own. Am not judging anyone. I am just encouraging everyone to think Why !!

  12. Now to put such a great piece in so very simple words that reiterate the speck of your heart,that is art in itself.First of your pieces I have read and am not disappointed I followed your blog…

    Come on man! Keep on making the world glow.

  13. Awesome thought with deep insight…. pics are Beautttttiful as usual…keep on inspiring us UncleπŸ‘

  14. I think people do have a reason to do what they’re doing – for eg. some may be coming to yoga class just to socialize – some to just kill their time..some to keep fit and so forth..but i believe we cannot judge..or ask people to think deeper as each has their own level of intelligence – each has their own reason! 😊

  15. ON 3DLIVING, FAULT FINDING AND BLAME

    β™‘ Forgiveness or Revenge
    ♧ Foolishness or Knowledge
    ♀ Wit and/or Wisdom

    …these ARE The Foundations of How We Live 3DLife; so I Suggest CHOOSE!!! Carefully or Perish in SOMB (Soul Observer Mind Body) that Rhymes with WOMB…what does Bad Behaviour Mean, what does Good Behaviour Mean; why do We DisAgree about Good and Bad πŸ€” ?:

    β™‘ Respect is having The Emotional Courage to Share Personal Darkness with Each Other in The Abscence of Judgement, Altercation, Argument and Any Other Conflict EveryOne; if I Recieved Money for Every Time I Have Been Blocked Because of THEIR!!! Rage, Fury and a Perceived Lack of My Respect for THEM!!! I Would Be Incredibly RICH!!! πŸ€‘ πŸ˜†πŸ˜…πŸ˜„πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š
    β™‘ Don’t Be Mean; yet what does Mean Mean πŸ€” ?
    β™‘ It’s Crystal Clear Clarity that Silence KILLS!!! People EveryOne; sure We ALL NEED!!! Linear Time Before Conversing; but to Suggest We Must Be Silenced πŸ€” ? I AM Keeping Quiet NOW!!! πŸ˜†πŸ˜…πŸ˜„πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š

    …β™‘β™‘β™‘…

  16. I share my thoughts and experiences with all Jyot. There are very few who are as receptive as you are πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

  17. If we don’t give up asking questions we will get all the answers.
    Thank you so much Jyot. You are such a loving follower of my thoughts.
    Wish you a very joyous and fulfilling life

  18. Again, a very deep insight and a wonderful question that everyone should ask themselves. Sometimes people don’t know what they want. They just run through the routine of everyday without pausing n thinking about the why. They get exhausted but still keep going until something major happens that makes them think of the why. I was like that but so happy to be looking for answers.
