Way Out Formula for Unsolvable Problems

In a lifetime, we often face a situation called PROBLEM. And facing this makes us tense and stressful. I am trying, in this article, to come out with a formula for this state of mind. I will try to be precise, but I shall expect you to be with me all the while – your full attention and total concentration is a must.

I have this concept divided this into three stages.

Stage I: Define the Problem

Many a time, we have stress or tension following not so important, general or minor issues, other persons’ matters or say simply some imaginary problems. DEFINE EXACT PROBLEM. If you think there is hardly any serious matter, just come out of it. Forget and ignore such trivial issues. Be cheerful and come out fresh from such status.

Most of the times, the so-called great problem may be no issue in reality.

Stage II: Attempts at Solving a Problem

Well, you have defined THE PROBLEM - labelled and found out the exact matter disturbing and bothering you. Now you are restless and do not find yourself comfortable. Here begins the attempt to solve it.

1. Apply all your primitive senses (taste, touch, smell, hearing and seeing) and secondary senses (sense of time, heat, balance, gravity and distance) to their maximum.

2. You have your own intelligence, judgement, understanding, expectation and planning. Surround your problem with all of above, it is your life and your desire to live it in your own way; no one should interfere. Now you will understand what went wrong and what you should do to correct the mistake. Just do that. It should be the end of the story.

3. Help: Help of parents, close (close and concerned, not all or any) relatives and friends can be of some help and should be tried if so is needed. The word should is important because you are not obliged to live your life on someone's whims!

Yes, using all your intelligence and getting help should lead to the ideal solution. Admitting the mistake to self and desire to correct the same is a pre-condition.

Most of the times, we come out happily from the said situation and decide finally to remediate using the options available.

Stage III: Problem You Could Not Solve

Now, everything failed, intelligence, guidance and common sense - all ended poorly without a solution.

Sixth Sense: In the mysterious borderland beyond the reach of our five senses, there is a remarkable human faculty existing to solve any issue. It is known as Sixth Sense (EPS = Extra-sensory Perception), not understood by science about its functioning technique.

It is thalamus, an inner brain organ of the little finger size, a seat of ancient sixth sense. Actually, the sixth sense occasionally flares brightly in primitive, unsophisticated person, children, and also an adult under great stress. The sixth sense is incited more freely when consciousness - our own brain - does not override their free play.

So to say, just tapping the potentiality of the sixth sense of brain can help solve any problem.

Intuition (Inner Voice): This is the faculty of our thoughtful mind that gives a sound of inner-voice. Intelligence and consciousness have no role to play here.

Intuition is a signal we sense in a flash that another person values, virtues and vices. We are driven to our goal without any knowledge.

So intuition is a signalling by which person knows beforehand bad imminent result. Like how some women just understand the intent of sexual harassment on seeing an individual by intuition.

God-factor: We may or may not believe in the existence of God. But sometimes, we need moral support and consolation from non-human elements and God-factor has a role to play. Because we know we do not have control over many factors and situation leading to the end result.

Bhagavad Gita tells about total surrender to God and tells to be witness to the events occurring in personal life without being part of it, as a part of problem-solving in the day to day life.

Having told everything you should do to solve the problem, here is the final ‘way out method’ from the Bible by Dr Smiley Blanton:
  1. Relax. 
  2. Stand quietly. 
  3. Stop trying any attempts to solve the problem with a conscious mind. 
  4. Let creative power in your unconscious mind take-over. 
  5. It can solve the whole thing if you just come out of your own way.

Anavils - An Endangered Community

After Parsis, Anavils ( Anavil Brahmins , અનાવિલ બ્રાહ્મણ ) are the fastest decreasing community. The total population of Anavils around the world does not exceed two lakhs figure and that is also fast reducing day by day. Days are not far, beyond a century or so, when they will have to be seen/found in records, photos and videos. Why? Because,    - they get married too late,    - many are dying unmarried,    - they wait for the career to be settled before the first (and maybe the only) childbirth.

Gujarat – Introduction And History

Pyramid Of Virgin Dreams

This is a novel depicting the story of an IAS officer’s life. Author Vipul Mitra is himself an IAS officer serving in Gujarat and living with his family in Ahmedabad. This book could take birth after ten years of thinking, writing and rewriting!  The title pyramid was derived from an Egyptian pyramid with a gigantic structure, a symbol of power stretching higher and higher into the sky. The author compares the pyramid with bureaucrats. He says the only difference was that one housed deceased Egyptian pharaohs while other housed living, conniving, tattling officers.

Karmic Theory (Law Of Karma)

“Facing Challenges and Creating Destiny” by BK Shivani, Gurgaon National Conference on Mind-Body-Medicine, Mount Abu. August 6-10, 2010 What is Karma? Karma is work or energy going out in the form of 1. Thought, 2. Word and/or 3. Action. Resultant return of energy is in the same amount known as Bhagya (Destiny). The role of God is to ask you to do Karma and to help you to do RIGHT karma. Then whatever good/bad karma you do, the result is accordingly and entirely your responsibility. Because the result is Destiny (Bhagya). So don’t blame anyone else or God for anything bad. Do not try to blame someone responsible for your own deed and its result.

Long Vacation At Bengaluru

After voluntary retirement as Government Medical Officer, my wife Dr Bhavana (Devyani) wanted to have a vacation and I joined her. The long break of 14 days (2 weeks) was starting on date 9th March 2011 and ending on 23rd March 2011. We planned to stay at Rahul’s (our son) residence at Bangalore and return to Bilimora. Vacation - is stopping the continuous job/work and retire at some place at leisure. We know vacation is a change of activity and we did that. It is a recess, say a break or temporary cessation of routine work. Is vacation necessary ?

Jainism: Simplified

I am introducing here world spread religion having 5.5 million followers, mainly in India and abroad like USA, UK, Canada, East Africa and many other countries in one of the six greatest religions. Word "Jain" is derived from "Jina" meaning conqueror. "Arihant" is one who has destroyed his inner enemies like anger, greed, passion and ego.

Condolence

A few days ago, my mother (84) passed away of old age. I had an experience of being in a state of sorrow due to her demise. The article is an outcome of experiences following the incidence. I did realize the need and importance of true consolation to the grieved person. So I thought it is prudent to write from the heart words giving guidance. Condolence : It is expressing sympathy to a misfortune or bereavement (one deprived of relative because of death). Consolation : To give comfort or sympathy to an unhappy person. On the death of a close relative, a sudden gap is created due to the absence of that relative. Even the mentally strong person understanding every aspect of the event becomes shocked for a while. Here is the need of true consolation known as 'condolence.'

Are Old-age-homes Meant For My Parents?

Or if I may ask, are my parents worth sending and keeping in an old-age-home? The need for time demands more and more old-age-homes to be built. Because: Expense: No problem. Monthly payment amount: No problem. Servants, cook and other staff needed: No problem. Whatever has to be done: No problem!

Three Decades Of My Nomadic Experience

I recently read the novel "Pyramid of Virgin Dreams" by Vipul Mitra. He affectionately described the pains and pleasures of multiple transfers because of his father’s job as DSP and later himself as an IAS officer. While reading it occurred to me, I have had a similar life of changing a place many times nearly every alternate year. So why not narrate my story and the article is here! A nomad means someone who lives by travelling from place to place - moving around all the while. I was a nomad for the initial 28 years of my life, staying and studying at more than 15 places. A year or two and change of the place again! 

Jealousy

My friend Dr Ashwinbhai Naik  asked me to share my views on the topic 'jealousy' and that created this viewpoint article. Jealousy is an emotion inherited by all of us. It has nothing to do with age, sex, intellectual level or financial status. This emotion is a negative one expressed according to the intensity of the feeling, and that is why some people can hide it even though they have it in the back of their minds.
