It is interesting to see a play on words and the impact they make. Trying to identify more on how certain thoughts affect our thought process, especially when we are trying to do something which is quite challenging. The need is of a good dose of motivation which keeps us alive and kicking and some of them keeps us thinking. Trying out an analysis on this one

  • Inspiration is energy, it is the surge, the rush of emotions, the drive, the push, the optimistic front trying to make things happen. It is strength to say the least, the strength which drives us forward.
  • Desperation on the other hand is also action, but more importantly the emotional standstill it puts someone through is quite interesting. The feeling of being low, tired, somehow making things happen since there is no choice. I’m certainly not saying it won’t produce results, it certainly will. But the question is at what cost!
  • Both optimists and pessimists produce results. Some go to the extent of calling themselves realists. I have nothing against that, but the truth is each one of them produces results but a pessimist is someone who is the least happy about it. The path is of an equal amount of importance.
  • The path is always a choice, it is a choice to try to win or try not to lose. Looking at win or lose, I would still prefer to say win or not win, I would certainly try to avoid a negative word on the thought process cos I would want to avoid even an inadvertent focus on it.

If the end result is not going to change, I would rather prefer being happy while fighting than feeling sad which emanates from the desperation. Being inspired seems the simpler path to take. Don’t you think? 🙂

  1. Yup, nam bhagavad gita nu idanne heLodu 🙂 sathya, nishTe, khushiyinda kelasa maaDu, gelavu ninnade

    Somehow remembering proper sanskrit lines which eventually mean the same, so putting them down 🙂

    Karmanye Vadhikaraste, Ma phaleshou kada chana
    Ma Karma Phala Hetur Bhurmatey Sangostva Akarmani

    Ninna kelasa maaDodakke ninage adhikaara ide aadre adara phala ninnadalla.
    Phalasa aasege kelasa maaDbeDa, that way you will be detached from your performing duties.

    Jaasthi philosophical aagbiDthu aadre this philosophy will surely make you a winner 🙂

    1. Oh yes! This is the best comment I’ve got. Recently read the Bhagawadgita and from then on I’ve been an absolute fan. Now reading vivekananda’s interpretation of karma yoga. Absolute gems of philosophy..

      Action and results – fantastic interpretations 🙂

We would love to hear your point of view
