YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF ?
by Jay Chatterjee
As I write this in my home-office, my bookcase
is to my left. It's spilling over with reference material I use.
Contained in the restricted space are books, more books, business
papers, tapes, pamphlets, and self help information. All of this
material has been an absolute Godsend at one point or another.
These are my treasures, the things I refused
to trash as I moved from one home to another. I had no compunctions
in giving away some of the silver and the crystal, which I was
unable to fit into storage boxes. But giving up my books would
be like giving up my right arm!
Of course, these are my personal priorities!
Each of us has to find his/her own. There are no rights or wrongs
The objective is to be able to IDENTIFY your
As I write this, I face the wall. It is camel
and marbled. Quite relaxing really, when and if one focuses on
it, which I rarely do.
I focus instead on 3 photo frames that adorn
The largest one is edged with a 1" black rim
and reads "No smoking!".
It's not there as a prompt, I kicked a two
pack a day habit back in January 1981! It's there to remind me
that I CAN do what I want to, provided I want it badly enough!
I proved it to myself, when I gave up smoking. (Once I was motivated
to do so, it was EASY, believe me!)
The second frame, the smallest one, says "Just
Yes, I swiped Nike's motto for myself. So
often, we are held back from acting according to our own intuitions
by other people, who deride our beliefs as weird or impractical
or foolish, or worse.
Had I given such opinions any credence, I
would never have experimented with the Tibetan Rejuvenation Technique
or discovered its amazing power to keep one healthy and youthful.
Today The Technique has become as integral
a part of my daily regimen as brushing my teeth! Would I have
started the http://www.youngagainforever.com web site if I had
(always) gone by what others said? (including my own children!)
I thank God, my karma, and my destiny that
I ignored some advice from 'well-wishers'.
The third message is in the minimalist of frames,
and reads as follows:
"It is the characteristic excellence
of the strong person,
that they can bring momentous issues to the fore
and make a decision about them.
The weak are always forced to decide between
alternatives they have not chosen themselves"
Each time I focus on any of the three frames,
its meaning becomes more clear. They have become my credo.
It's not that I have stronger beliefs, or
more will power. Its just that I have, to some extent, come to
terms with my fears. The fear of death, ill health, impotence,
ridicule; the fear of being considered different; the fear of
failure, of rejection, of being alone.
Having done that, the progression is to the
legitimate questions: Does one know where one wants to go?
Is one headed in the right direction?
What's really out there at the end of the road?
And, it is equally imperative to ensure that we take steps to
bridge the gap between where we are today and where we want to
Each day we need to re-evaluate our priorities.
As I have often mentioned (earlier), I have
integrated some mental and physical disciplines into my daily
regimen. A healthy mind and healthy body go together.
For a positive mental outlook under all circumstances,
I have found the Releasing Method to be very effective. For the
proper functioning of my body and my chakra system, I rely totally
on the Tibetan Technique. And 20 minutes of meditation is also
part of my daily routine.
But you must be motivated to take the first
step .....and it's all in the mind.
