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.

Golf, Life and You…

You have to wade through the lake; without getting wet. Yes, it is possible.

Nothing is in your hand. Whatever is; is. You may desire; or a desire, of becoming a Golf Star, might comes to you; how you will achieve it, is unknown. You might make an effort; you might get it, you might not get it. Out of your efforts; or out of sheer luck, you might get it; or you might not get it.

Nothing is certain. Movement, of The Universe is mysterious. It is futile trying to understand this.

It might appear to you that it is in your hand; and you start making efforts to fulfill your desire, of becoming a golf star. Like, you consult a good golf coach; you opt for a good golf courses, you join a good golf club; you do all possible efforts, to get your dream. Sometimes you get desired results; sometimes you don’t.

Your life is Golf. Sometimes you get your life; sometimes you do not get. If you get, it is O.K., you got it. But if you don’t get your desired results; your condition becomes bad; it might become worst. And precisely, this is the point…where life starts.

Everything thing is inside you. You do not have to go anywhere to learn anything. You are the owner of your life; make it worst; or make it good…it is always you. You have learnt many false things; since beginning.  You try to control nature. You try to understand the mystery of the universe.

Sometimes after getting initial success, beginner’s luck, you take it for granted. And here starts the missing point.

Desire might come to you; it is natural, how to take this; how to understand this; is the art, which you have to learn. This learning; this understanding is Awareness. You have to understand this. And it is very simple to understand this. Certainly, this is the door; from where, The Light might enter into your existence…this light; this illumination is must for you.

Darkness, in-side you, has to go. Coming of desire, and knowing the mystery of the universe; are two different things. Understanding of your desire is possible. You have to understand, this is merely a desire; not you life.

To get this desire, of becoming a golf star, fulfilled; or if you do not get it; these both situation should not affect you, in other words; you have to walk the lake without getting wet. This wetness is important; it has to be taken care of.

Understand desire first. You must dream; and you must make an effort to get your dream. First, understand yourself; who you are?

To understand this; or to choose this path of Awareness…Meditate. Meditation is a great art of eye opening. Meditation opens many doors for you. Meditation helps you in understanding…what desire is; what is dream?

Nothing is bad; or good. It is always you; who makes it good or bad, rather it is always your ignorance, which makes it good or bad for you. Life is golf; life is a ply…ply it; in awareness.

And along with golf, if you are taking you life as a play; if you are taking your life as music, then whether your dream, you desire of becoming a golf star is being fulfilled or not; it will not affect you. Whether you won; or lost it, whether you got it; or you did not get, it hardly matters; though you must play your game of golf to win; but if you lose it also; you should not be dishearten.

You have enjoyed playing your game of Golf; of Life. And that is what matters. And the day, under any circumstances, you start enjoying Life; golf, you will realize…that, you have waded through the lake; without getting wet.
