To whip or not to whip

Whip

Model : Bachi

Last week I went to watch horse racing, yeah I just watched I didn’t win 😐

I was too excited and thrilled to go as this is on my bucket list, and finally I would be ticking it off. After a couple of races I started thinking about all the whipping the horses had to take in the effort to win. Maybe I was losing and hence the thought …hmmm……but on a serious note is it really necessary for the jockey to keep whipping the poor thing so that some people or the house could win. I went online and googled it and found that there are laws to fine/suspend jockeys for excessive whipping but how do you define “excessive”, definitely you don’t ask the horse,  “Have you been whipped excessively, do you want to press charges? ”

I felt bad that I paid to see this and also that I lost…hmmm …..I don’t know which one triggered the feeling. It just happened once , never to happen again.

Now I am going to concentrate on the next item in my bucket list – watch the animals in their natural habitat running free and wild AND  finish my next painting (this one’s not on the bucket list) 🙂

Cleanup !!!

dog-clean-up

A couple of years back I watched the movie “Two Brothers”. For those who haven’t seen the movie, it’s about two tiger clubs who get separated when they were young and are bred in captivity after that. Sangha is the timid and shy one, whereas Kumhal is fearless, naughty and playful. After being captured, Sangha, the lucky star ends up staying in the kings palace, where he grows up to be strong, fearless and ferocious, whereas Kumhal, is sold to a zoo and learns to play tricks on the masters commands. He loses his spirit and becomes meek and docile.

Watching this movie got me thinking about our own surroundings.

How much does our surrounding affects us?

Unlike Sangha and Kumhal who were animals and did not have much of a choice, we humans, the high breeds do have the liberty of choosing who we surround ourselves with. I read somewhere that “you are the average of five people around you”, if that is the case I’d rather have people who increase my average.

Since I saw the movie, I became quite choosy, more than adding good people to my list, I also started a cleanup process – started eliminating negative people from my list(social media and likewise) – people who decrease my average 🙂

Now my surrounding looks a bit clean and green. It does need a bit more cleaning up, but I’ll get there in a couple of years.

The impacts – a happier and motivated me, I started my blog instead of just chatting with people, I think more about what I want to do Vs what I am not able to do.

This also reminds me of the book I read, “What to say when you talk to your self” by Shad Helmstetter.

If you want to have a positive lifestyle you need to get rid of negativity around you which influences your mind. As stated in the book your brain is an apartment with old furniture. Take out the old furniture and throw it away, which is the negative thinking and replace it with new furniture, which is positive thinking – a great springboard to improving ones life.

Einstein said and I thought …

Einstein

How true is that?  I bet very true…  coming from the genius himself.

Reading this quote got me into thinking a lot about life and the people around me.

We always try to change the theory, justifying ourselves by saying, “this is reality” or “this is not possible in the real world” or “what you are talking about is an ideal situation”.

Why don’t we accept the fact that ideal situation/solution is the best possible way that is out there and everything else is mere acceptance followed by excuses?

I have always tried to follow my dreams no matter what; it hasn’t been easy but definitely interesting, adventurous and satisfying.

This brings me to another thought  -> taking responsibility.

As long as we take responsibility for things we do and stop blaming others, the society and our environment ….. the more we aim for creating the ideal world around us and work towards changing the facts rather than the theory.
