Golf, Success, Failure and You…

You are the master; your success is under your control; you are not under control of your success.

Somewhere, someday, someone rightly said; ‘nothing succeeds like success.’

Tiger woods is trying hard to come back; whether the Tiger ill roar again or not, is not known; but his efforts indeed need to be applauded.

You can make an effort and to encourage you, heroes; legends, success stories are sighted. Few of them are truly inspiring. You need to be encouraged; if you wish to become a golf hero.

You have taken all precautions in becoming a golf hero. You have selected a good golf course; you have selected a good golf coach; your golf practice is flawless; sometimes your style might be compared to a legend; and you feel encouraged. This is normal, natural; everybody needs encouragement.

After giving your best; you failed miserably. You are aghast; and that is quite natural. You are broken; again you gather your wits; and you start your practice again; this is remarkable, it needs tremendous courage to do so.

You start your practice again with a new vigor; you fail again, and you are finished; if you are successful; your success story will be suited to others; your bravery will be praised; but if you failed; you might be condemned; you might be called a madman.

This is your world; where even your happiness or innocent laughter depends on something; your success; unless you are successful how you can laugh; the day you become successful, you will laugh.

Your happiness is planned; misery keeps coming to you quite often,without any planning; but to stay happy you will have to plan; this is nonsense.

Your golf practice is good; your golf coach is good; your golf classes are good; there is no fault anywhere, yet, your happiness is uncertain; your happiness is depending on your success.

If you really wish to be happy; if you really wish to become a golf hero; you have to come out from this dependent tendency; you have to drop this word ‘dependent’. Self-dependent is the best remedy; if you really wish to depend on something,depend on you; else drop this word; depended.

Now two questions arise; how to drop this word dependent; and how to become a golf hero? Let us start with the latter; how to become a golf hero? There is no harm in dreaming; there is no harm in desiring; you must desire, you must dream. One who dreams is successful; hence must dream.

You preparation for golf is perfect; good practice; good golf coach; good golf courses, everything is perfect; except wisdom; focus; understanding.

You have to understand you; you have to understand, that you have limited powers; you have got the power of dreaming; desiring; planning; execution, but the result is not in your hand. You are the master; your success is under your control; you are not under control of your success. This understanding comes through Meditation.

Meditation is the key. Meditation brings miraculous results. The day this understanding comes to you that you’re the master of your success; your success is under your control, that day onwards; that moment onwards success and failure will not bother you.

And then you will get the answer of your first question; how to drop the word ‘dependent’; and the day you become independent; that moment onwards you will be wading through the lake; without getting wet.

God, Golf and You

Who created The Universe?

Creation of the universe started with a question mark? The answer differs; some believe that God created the universe; Science differs; some say it was due to evolution; exact fact is unknown.

We praise Moon, we consider it a sign of Romance; its coo light soothes us; especially in autumn. And we human being landed on it; just to discover; what is there inside The Moon.Praise The Moon, do not land on it; else you will miss the beauty of praising.

And you are on your way to discover the mystery of the universe. Let it be a mystery; let it remain a question mark that, who created the universe? The word Mystery is beautiful; something hidden is attractive.

The moment you remove the curtain; the beauty will go. Live in a moment; hold that moment; do not try to unfold the moment; just stay in a moment; just float in a moment.

You will not agree, you have to find the reason and there is a mad rush to know the mystery. Just accept the mystery.

The more you try to unfold it; the more mysterious it will become; instead of knowing who created the Universe; just enjoy its beauty; its mystery.

Do not make any effort to challenge its authority; just float, move with it. And very soon you will find that the mystery is being unfolded before you. And the day this unique experience happens inside you; you will feel an explosion of the nectar inside you; and in that moment of ecstasy, for God’s sake do not go anywhere in search of the answer that who created The Universe, Just stay there; do not make any effort to enjoy it; just float in that sea of Ecstasy.

And when in that moment of great joy, when  God appears before you; ask him, How to play Golf? It is possible through Meditation.

Golf, Life, Time, and You…

Time is here, now; Death is here, now; and you are here, now; this Now is important.

Time, Person, and Place; these there things are important; one has to behave accordingly. And if you are behaving accordingly; then your misery will not affect you.

Like you cannot be successful all the time; for example take the example of Tiger Woods; he was a star, off course now also he is, but he is struggling now; his time is not the same_ few excerpts from published news;

“(Reuters) – Tiger Woods, battling back from a back injury, still drives fan interest and TV ratings and PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem is as keen as the former world number one himself that he has a big 2014 finish. The odds are not in Woods’ favor. But PGA commissioner Tim Finchem, who was in Bergen County for The Barclays media day Tuesday, isn’t counting the former World No. 1 out. “He’s got a couple tournaments coming up where he’s won on both golf courses — one of which he’s won on a lot of times,” Finchem said. “And so I’m not one of those who is pessimistic about his immediate and long-term future in the sport. I’m at the other end of the spectrum.”

Now he is considered as ‘former no1’. Now his time is changed, Tiger Wood is an example; if he has stuck to his old time, then it will be very difficult for him to play again. That time is gone; you must come out of it, here I am not talking about Mr. Tiger Wood, I am talking in general, if your are stuck somewhere with your past, then life will become very difficult for you.

You will be leading a very false life. You have to move on; suppose you become a Golf Star, and you are praised all over the world; your golf coaches feel proud of you. You are happy; and that is natural. But this glory is short lived; one day it has to go away. Now, when that part of your life is over; you must move on with the time. You must stay in moments.

Accept the situation; whatever situation you are in; accept it. This life is a beautiful gift to you; given by Almighty. Enjoy it. Before you start practice your golf you must think, and accept the fact; that even if you become a golf star tomorrow, you must take this success in a normal way.

Digesting success is more difficult, then achieving it. Once you have digested the success; you are a winner; the real Hero. Now, this way, your glory will never fade. Because, this way you are living in now.

And the day you learn this art of living in now; your Hero status becomes eternal; it never fails.

You must have seen; known about many golf heroes; they came and went. Nothing is permanent; hence always stay in a moment; your entire existence existing in a moment. That flicker, of a moment, is important; realization of this flicker moment is Awareness; and this awareness comes through Meditation.

Now if you wish to play your golf in a meditative mood; or if you wish to play golf meditatively; start doing Meditation. You can read a blog wwwdottechniquesofmeditationdotblogspotdotcom

There are many Meditation Techniques; read all, and practice all; whatever suits you the best, start practicing on that techniques.

Meditation teaches you about Life. Meditation brings you closer to life; through meditation you realize life. If you are playing your golf meditatively; you will be playing with an alert mind. And golf played with an alert mind never fades; its glory, its victory is eternal. Love your life; live your life; practice Meditation and enter into the world of Eternal Bliss.
