All Lives Matter at the End!!

Don’t carry it with you. Don’t pass it or share it with others. Leave it as soon as possible. Take it with you when you die. It kills more lives than cancer. It kills you from inside. There is enough of it to kill two more generations. So please don’t give it next generations.

                                                                “Hate”

Hate his color, kill him.

Hate his food, kill him.

 Hate his speech, kill him.

 Hate his movie, kill him.

Hate his book, kill him.

Hate his dressing, kill him.

Hate his love, kill him.

Hate his riches, kill him.

Hate his knowledge, kill him.

Hate his faith, kill him.

What will make you to treat him as a fellow human being? How will you treat a human being?

Hate is negative.

Humanity should be enough to treat him with respect and dignity. Humanity is about the feeling and compassion for life that exist in everything around us. Show your human nature, not your animal nature. At the least, don’t show your animosity against life. Our animal instinct to fight or flight comes out of fear. Later this fear transforms into hatred of that particular feared things.

There are people who use this fear and hatred to obtain power, prestige and materialistic wealth. Above all, these elements divide people in the name of religion, race, colour, caste, language, culture and so on. It happens all around the world.

Hate1

Within India, North Indian people hate Northeast Indian people. Likewise, the South Indian people hate North Indian people. There are various stories about fights and killings of neighboring states (Gujarat & Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu & Karnataka, Arunachal & Assam).Hate exists within states too(Telangana & Andhra Pradesh, Jammu Kashmir Muslims & Pandits).It may seem news to someone outside Hate circle.

For people who are hated, it is life or death situation. They have to live in constant fear for their life and life of their loved ones. From India to America, France to Australia, Myanmar to Israel, No country in the world is exception to this. Each and every human life has value. This inherent value and our capabilities for good should be spread more than our capabilities of destruction.

All Lives Matter at the end.

Black lives matter, White lives matter, Muslim lives matter, Hindu lives matter, Jews lives matter, Palestinian lives matter and so on. Every single life on this planet matters. What does hate provide to these lives?  

Nothing. Nothing worth comes out of hate. It brings only destruction to lives and to our minds. Humans long have suffered, suffering and will continue to suffer because of hate. Hate will exist as long as love exist. Dualism is part of our creations and it never goes away. But it gives us a choose to love or hate. We can’t dream of removing hate from us without removing love.

These are opposite sides of same coin of life. A question arises “Can’t Law protect lives?” We know law is efficient and much needed for our civilization to sustain. But it can only bring order to some extend and the rest has to done by humans.

Our Prayer.

Hence, Self-evaluating our hate and consequences of it has to done on individual level. Every individual can do it but should have the strength to withhold pressure from peers and society. Moreover, Mob mentality affects even sane individuals. We have to resist the mob mentality of hate and support the people who stand for all lives.

A humble request from our team ArhaathS”Please don’t carry hate with you. Please don’t pass the hate to others or to your next generations. Please let go of all hatred before it consumes you , your family and society as whole”.

Our Personal Finance is Inevitable.

Our personal finance is a story of our mind and money. It should be about how our protagonist “mind” wins over his girl “money” against all odds and challenges. Our mind behaves as Disney’s Cinderella and money as her glass sandal. Against all her troubles by oppressing aunt and humiliating cousins, Cinderella escapes with her sandal to find her prince charming. In put in Marvel way, our mind plays the role of Iron man or Thanos and flip his finger with infinity gauntlet called “money”. Hence, our personal finance is inevitable.

Money is like the infinity stones which power to the holder to change the reality and win over the worlds. To build our own Stark Tower of finance, we need to have strong foundation laid by open mindset, better money habits and strong character. Mind of successful millionaire looks for abundance and open to changes before anyone. On many occasions, they become the cause for change in the world. Likewise, your money habits definitely decides whether you going to stay poor or come out of it. Poor not in the sense of lacks of roof over head or dress to cover our mortal body but inability to achieve what we set in our mind.

Personal Finance is inevitable:

After laying down the strong foundation by understanding the various personal finance concepts, we move on to our building blocks such as Income, Expenditure, Savings, Insurance and Investments. The building blocks of our financial tower should be thoroughly studied ,tested and then placed in right position at right time. You can go for expert opinions on each block’s design and planning but you are the engineer-in-charge of your tower. Therefore, let us have a quick overview of our blocks and then study it in more detail individually.

Income:

The inward flow of cash into our system by means of any sources such as job, business, rent, investments, YouTube channel etc… We are paid for our labour, service and goods produced. It is up-to us to decide the sources of income and mode of service or labour or goods.

Expenditure:

The outward flow of cash from our system to fulfill our needs and wants. When our expenditure is aligned with our values ,then we are at right track to our financial independence. We become or remain slave if our expenditures are at crossroads with our values.

Saving:

”A thousand little drops form a ocean”. This quote summarizes the need for saving to face the unexpected things in the unpredictable future. When we have full awareness about our income and expenditure, planning for saving becomes easier.

Insurance:

Insurance is different from saving and investment. It acts as protective shield for the beneficiaries on demise of the policy holder. In the absence of earning person, the family falls victim  to sudden financial assaults. A clear knowledge on insurance may save our family members from such unforeseen tragedies.

Investment:

”Never invest in a business you cannot understand”-said the famous investor and one of richest men in the world ,Warren Buffet. Investment is time game and it tests our character like anything we seen in life. People who are attracted towards investment on promise and dreams of high short term returns are the ones end up at bottom or the first to flee when the market starts to crumble.

Building up our Personal financial tower depends on various blocks and weather factors. We need the mindset, character and habits to face the horrible weather that throws difficulties in constructing our tower. In the journey of life and learning, some are ahead us lighting the path and some become the light. Let us light the path for our journey and the people following us.
