Your character is influenced by your desire


It all  begins with your innate, passionate desire to want and to have something. It is only human to long for and want a thing, a person or an outcome.  This wanting or longing is what a desire is.  Believe it or not your true self is a reflection of your deep seated desires. Your character, mental, emotional and physical states are to  a great extent influenced by your desires. You become an epitome of these wants that you have.

Desires may not necessarily be materialistic. A person engaged in spiritual pursuits may have spiritual desires, though to a worldly person they may not seem as desires they are nevertheless wants and desires which the person wants to gratify. In both cases i.e worldly and spiritual desires the person would have to take appropriate actions to realize the same .



Once a desire blooms the freewill or rather will comes into play and you start taking actions to achieve your goal or mission. Action  being not only a deed but also a chain of thoughts and words spoken. To be precise your ‘ Karma’ comes alive and starts to build on to the ultimate reality .i.e your destiny.

Once the seed of desire is sown it sprouts into freewill or the freedom we have to control our actions. God or any other supernatural power is only a guiding force, the ultimate truth of good or bad, right or wrong, fair or unfair   resides in the depths of our mind and heart alone.

This highlights the need to distinguish between natural and unnatural desires. Natural desires being the innate desires that you are born with and unnatural being the ones destructive to society and the environment.

What sets a person of substance apart from the crowd is the will to take actions to realize his desires . He conducts himself by visualizing the end result and then drawing an action plan , achieving milestones by his actions and arriving at the destination. There is a difference in your imagined goal and the goal that naturally comes as a result of your deep, innermost cravings.  If you fear arriving at an unwanted destination then this is reason enough to re-examine your desires.


The idea of a fixed destiny can be highly demotivating .It immobilizes one from taking action to realize ones goals.  All the events and happenings in our life course have not been laid down before hand. Well ,maybe some but not all.  When we think of destiny especially in the eastern context it is understood as submission to a laid out plan by the Almighty and with no choice in the matter.

To quote William Jennings Bryan-“Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for , it is a thing to be achieved”.

To fulfill our desires we must firmly hold them and not let them slip or else we will get back to where we started. Believing in a fixed destiny can lead to excessive fatalism.

But it would not be wrong to state that one must suffer for the past misdeeds and acts. So, in a way destiny is fixed in terms of what consequences you bear by the merit or demerit of your past actions.


The law of cause and effect    propogates that every cause that is created by what we think and do will result in time in corresponding   effects . This is so much in line with the Newtonian principle according to which every action produces an equal and opposite reaction.

There are scientists who believe that some sort of determinism exists in the nature of human beings. For example Professor Einstein said “Honestly I cannot understand what people mean when they talk about freedom of the human will’. This clearly implies of forces greater than will at work which determine events.”

So if you have a natural desire which is in tandem with your environment then realizing your ultimate destiny would not be impossible as long as you persist and hold onto your desires. If you have an unnatural desire you may realize what you perceive as your ultimate destiny but don’t be naïve enough to think that your ‘ Karma’ will let you get away with it. The brunt of your doings has to be borne by you and you alone.


“Your existence is a river-like chain in which every step is determined by the past.  Your future is not really future;it is just a by-product of the past. It is only the past determining, shaping, formulating and conditioning your future. That is why your future is predictable”.-Osho (Rajneesh).

There are tendencies that a man inherits genetically and has little control over. This does not mean a cure is impossible, deliberate efforts can alter the course of the so called fixed destiny. There are numerous examples of medical ailments inherited being cured by proper medication and medical treatment. Astrological science too clearly indicates that efforts to perform actions correctly will be rewarded. In case of traits or characterteristics like skin color, hair color or body structure you are fated to have them. It takes quite a few generations until these are lost and your descendents acquire a new set of traits. But in your lifetime you have been fated to have these.

Certain native Americans possess a gene which causes diabetes.  This gene is activated if they eat incessantly for twelve months in a year but if they employ their freewill and eat incessantly only three to four months in a year then the potential diabetes remains dormant.


To quote Jawahar Lal Nehru “ Life is like a game of cards . The hand you are dealt is determinism; the way you play it is freewill.”

So embark on this exciting journey on the road of freewill to lead you to your destination i.e your destiny on the chariot of ‘Karma’ drawn by your willful natural desires.

      Yeah… Arguing 24/7…luckily it isn’t 24/7 exactly since Brits and her sisters are with Miss Miller, it’s a miracle we all get through the night with Alvin and Brits arguing through night, texting like mad! I can’t sleep with that honking big light over me since Alvin says texting at night without adequate light is bad for his eyes…. YEA RIGHT! Lack of SLEEP is bad for your daily function as well! Ellie and Theo are done preparing the MEAL as they call it. Can’t wait to try it… XD

    A good article. The loss of loved ones is a great blow. It takes much time for some people to come out of it. But you should express your grief by some reactions to over come it more easily. When express your grief, your heart will feel some lightness and will not affect your health conditions deep. If you do not express your grief, then it will remain stuck in your heart and make you sick both mentally and physically. People close and near to the grief stricken should also try to console them so that they out cry and feel themselves light with the feeling and satisfaction that there are others who care for him/her in bad times. This gives the grieved person security and confidence and slowly helps to recover himself/herselp.

    A good article on how to deal with inferiority complex. Inferiority arises when you compare with others. Added to that, the lack of self confidence and stage fear make it more difficult to deal with. This problem of inferiority arises when you constantly fail in your assignments, whenever your parents and friends make discouraging comments like ” you are not fit for anything” or “your friends and class mates are more better than you”, etc. and many more reasons. So, first thing you should do is to stop comparing yourself with others. Then, you develop some boldness. Let others say what they say. ignore their comments. Try to understand the weaknesses in you and their reasons. Slowly develop over coming those weaknesses one by one. One more thing is you should not get bewildered at failures. You must see some positive aspects in your failures. Every failure is a step to your success. So go on making effort again and again.

    A very good post. Very useful tips to over come inferiority complex. Basically this complex arises out of stage fear and lack of confidence. This may be due to recurring failures. When a person fails in some attempt, he gets discouraged. When discouraged, he lacks inspiration to make another attempt because of the fear of failing again. He is afraid of the others surrounding him who may comment with disrespect for him. In such circumstances, he needs people who can boost his spirit. He needs the support of encouraging words building some confidence in him. Parents, siblings and friends can give support in such circumstances as they are closely related to him. But, more often, the problem is that they may not be having any hint of his problem as the victim keeps himself aloof from them and don’t let them know his problem. Even in such circumstances, they should come to know that he is having some problem due to which he is keeping aloof from them. So, that way, they can be able to know about his having problem and try to make him more inter-active with them by giving company to him and try to solve his problem.

    A very good article

    A very good and healthy article. “Let Go” and “Let it Be”. Very well said. We must learn to let it go. Only then, one could be happy. If you cling on to it, it will keep on torturing you. One day will come when you end broke-out. So, better let it go and enjoy your present life peacefully. What happens, let it happen and don’t fight if it does not happen your way. You simply keep up your work neat and clean which is in your hands. Enjoy the life smiling away.

    I will suggest you, you could try using cold milk mix with almond oil…gently dab it around your face to reduce facial redness…or a cold tea bag would also be nice, the “tanin” would act as natural astringent and moisturizer for the skin… Drink lots of water and stay away from the sun.

    Aloe vera is a miracle plant. Massage you face with aloe vera gel for 2-3 minutes and leave it for 15 minutes, than rinse off. It will make your skin glowing and you easily get rid of facial redness from your face.
