Life + Love : Epsilon

The eight sessions of Life + Love classes were a welcome break from the normal teaching routine with loads of interactions, sharing of personal experiences, bonding with the team, and most importantly, learning in depth about the various topics of Life + Love classes in a simple and effective way from our excellent facilitators – Utsav Sir and Nisarg Sir.

7 habits of highly effective people and their significance in our daily lives – the importance of integrity as well as strength of character (primary greatness) in determining real success, our various paradigms and the paradigm shifts, depositing regularly to our emotional bank accounts for building meaningful relationships, doing mindful listening, respecting differences to build a synergizing atmosphere, accepting death as a final milestone in life and practicing sharpening the physical, mental, social and spiritual dimensions of renewal were covered in a lucid manner through real-life examples, activities, and personal connections.

The importance of problems and the pains associated with them in building our courage and wisdom, practicing discipline through delayed gratification, acceptance of responsibility, dedication to truth and balancing our emotions, defining love as the will to extend oneself for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth, myths of love – dependency, falling in love, collapsing ego boundaries and romantic love – lead to the most essential aspect about love – about it not being a feeling but a series of constructive actions through which we nurture our inner self and the external relations.

Marriage essentials – five key principles, eight mental stages, seven promises – and roles and responsibilities of parents in nurturing their children into successful human beings were also efficiently covered.

Overall, these sessions made me aware of the foundations that will help enrich my life.

Emotional Intelligence

सबसे पहले तो रितू जी और पिंकी जी का धन्यवाद जिन्होंने बहुत ही अच्छी तरह से समझाया की किस तरह से भावनात्मक बुद्धिमत्ता का उपयोग आपके दैनिक जीवन में कई अलग-अलग तरीकों से किया जा सकता है। जैसे कि आलोचना और जिम्मेदारी स्वीकार करने में सक्षम होना,गलती करने के बाद आगे बढ़ने में सक्षम होना,जरूरत पड़ने पर ना कहने में सक्षम होना,अपनी भावनाओं को दूसरों के साथ साझा करने में सक्षम होना,समस्याओं को ऐसे तरीकों से हल करने में सक्षम होना जो सभी के लिए कारगर हो,अन्य लोगों के लिए सहानुभूति रखना,किसको को शांति से सुनने का कौशल होना,यह जानना कि आप वह काम क्यों करते हैं जो आप करते हैं,दूसरों के बारे में जजमेंटल नहीं होना | भावनात्मक बुद्धिमत्ता के पाँच कौशल किसी के भी द्वारा, किसी भी समय सीखे जा सकते हैं। लेकिन भावनात्मक बुद्धिमत्ता के बारे में सीखने और उस ज्ञान को अपने जीवन में लागू करने में अंतर है। लेकिन इस session के बाद बहुत हद तक इसे अपनाया जा सकता है |

God / Religion and Scientific theories / Modern society are similar. We want to believe but they will always evolve with our intelligence.

In my opinion, there are two ways of living: what is right and what is wrong. However, after attending critical thinking classes, I have come to realize that what we learn in these classes is essentially the same as what is taught in the Sanatan religion – that before taking any action or forming any perception, we should think critically and morally, and consider what is right and wrong for humanity.
This means that we should not judge anyone based on their religion, language, caste, place of origin, country, etc. With proper knowledge, we can avoid making incorrect assumptions, conclusions, and beliefs.
However, as we learned in the first two critical thinking classes, the truth can vary from person to person.
For example, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru are considered Indian freedom fighters, but at the time, they were considered terrorists. Even today, some still refer to them as revolutionary terrorists, while others consider them revolutionary freedom fighters. This is how truth can differ for different people, but the truth remains the same.
In the end, I believe that God and scientific theories are similar. In scripture, God is in a metamorphic form that evolves with human intelligence, just like scientific theories. Whether you believe in God or not, the question of being an atheist or theist will never have an answer.
There are some similarities between beliefs in a deity or deities and scientific theories in that both can change and evolve as our understanding and knowledge increase. Scientific theories, however, are based on evidence and subject to testing, while religious beliefs are often based on faith and personal interpretation.
Science is constantly advancing and new discoveries can lead to the revision or replacement of previous theories, while religious beliefs may change more slowly and often involve a reconsideration of tradition and doctrine. Scientific theories aim to provide a comprehensive explanation for natural phenomena, while religious beliefs may offer a metamorphic framework for understanding the meaning and purpose of existence.
Ultimately, the way people understand and interact with scientific theories and religious scripture and beliefs may vary widely based on individual experiences, cultural backgrounds, and personal beliefs.

is similar to today’s scientific theories

This similarity does not end here; it also shows many similarities between religion and modern society.
Overall, the similarities between religion and modern society reflect the enduring human desire for meaning and purpose, as well as the importance of community and connection in our lives. Whether it be through religious beliefs or social values, both offer a sense of comfort and guidance, helping individuals to navigate the complexities of modern life and find a path to personal fulfillment and happiness.

So whether you are an atheist or theist, a normal or critical thinker, it is important to not only consider your own well-being but also what is right and wrong for humanity as a whole. Seek a path that leads to personal fulfillment and happiness while considering the impact on others.

But after trying and rejecting the modern atheist system I will consider religious scriptures as my guidance and guardian.

Thank you for reading until the end.


Strength Of Mind ( Integrity & EI)

“Getting a hold of my emotions” is the main change in me that I have learned out of all 8 life classes. The term “Integrity” which FS has always been following is something I have learned in depth. Integrity is not only a word but if we apply it in our lives, it can bring a vast change in us and also the people surrounding us. We can help ourselves grow and help others grow if we work on this. In life, there may be many instances where we might think not to follow integrity, but then being brave and working towards it will always keep you stress and guilt free which automatically connects with your emotions.

Emotional Intelligence is something to know about all our emotions in depth, it may be positive or negative and we need to work on it for bringing a better change in ourselves. The life classes here taught me to recognize my different levels of emotions where I could categorize them and fill in what I was lacking. It is we who can keep ourselves happy and it is again we only who can motivate ourselves. We are our own role models when it comes to our mental state of mind. Everyone has a life of their own but what we go through except us no one can feel therefore, we always need to be emotionally strong to stay happy in life and if we are happy we can keep others happy too.


Glimpse from my diary.

We have gone through lot of discussions and conversations which include meditations, articles and movies. We were given opportunities to go deep into ourselves selves and observe our emotional quotation, which gives us an idea about our triggers along with our responses and reactions on situations. We also learnt lot from sharing our experiences when other participants are sharing their POV and personal experience gives us feeling that we all are sailing in a same boat only size shape and sea are different which makes each journey unique but at the end our destination is same, we all seek for mental health and happiness.

Glimpse of EI LC from my diary.

Emotional Intelligence
Ability to understand your own and other emotions. Discriminate among them and learn how to regulate our thinking and reactions for the same.
Understanding word VUCA world and Amygdala attack was a new words and concepts I came across and was interesting to know my response in those two terms.
5 elements of EI
Self awareness – knowing self more in terms of emotion and feeling and situation in which we are in to it, Self regulation – knowing our triggers and reactions and responses for them, Motivation – which keeps us going and in-line with our goals, Empathy – where we can practice all about for other people and Social skills – using all mentioned a live to manage our relationships and people around us.
5 competencies of Self regulation
Self control, Trustworthiness, Conscientiousness, Adoptability and Innovation.
Ikigai – Reason for being. And 3 P’s
Passion, Pleasure and Purpose. Which are the factors if we drive through can lead us to our best  state of mental wellness.
And last but not the least
Psychological safety – very important state of mind which gives strength and confidence.

God may not be existing but my belief exists.

My learning From CT is giving time to system 2 and analyzing it to taking a decision. We, humans, have confirmation biases so I will be mindful of biases and try my best for fairness.

Not blindly believe in hard news, so I will search and know more about reality.

About God – God for me is, inner peace and strength. I believe in god and I think this belief can not be changed by me as I see god as a positive energy it’s given me strength and belief in myself. however, I am not believing blindly in any religious organization. I do believe in the existence of some power or a spirit above us. However, I do questions before following religious rituals, if not get the answer, then I do search and get the answer but I found for many rituals do not have a proper answer so I do not believe in that particular ritual or I just follow the ritual because of the happiness of family members but do not promote it and also the ritual doesn’t harm anyone Sometimes I follow rituals for my happiness not for any other reason. For me, God is the power that relieves my stress and who guides me it’s inside me only. Overall, whether god exists or not, for me god is my goodness and strength. I respect each and every person who follows any religion or does not follow any religion. I will not force anyone to follow any religion, as every individual can make a choice about what to follow and what not. Overall humanity is Univers religion.

Citical Thinking Reflection

I believe there is a supreme power, which is always there, taking care of us, guiding us. You can call it intuition, your inner voice or God. If you are growing as an individual, improvising yourself then there is no harm in keeping the faith.  We should be open for other perspective also, need to question oueselves at times.
Critical Thinking has taught given me to question myself, my belief system. In many cases we may still use our emotions in making decisions but at least we are aware of the choices.
Thanks to Bhargavi and Shezin ma’am for explaining this beautifully.  

World of God and Religion

When your mind is full of assumptions, conclusions, and beliefs, it has no penetration; it just believes and repeats past impressions. It’s the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without just accepting it. So, after a lot of discussions on Critical Thinking aspects like System-1, System-2 , Knowledge pot holes, different biases somewhere I started thinking critically about my thoughts before making a perspective or decision. In this process the new journey was to find an old question which I think we all have inside: “What do we believe about God & Religion?” In fact does ” God” exists is also a question. As per our knowledge and experiences we tried defining ‘God’ and our believes about Religion and its impact on our and others lives. For me I don’t believe in a God figure or how religions are tagged and divided with names. I feel God is “Karma” that means doing deeds. And Religion is “Dharma” i.e path of doing deeds. I always believed in moving from finite towards infinite. Now after applying Critical thinking and listening to atheist I have a stronger clarity that I will keep thinking about thing with reasoning.

Emotional Intelligence

My thoughts!!!!

Beauty of keeping others emotions in center and not just yours. Following these 5 emotional competencies of self regulation is kind of helpful:

Self control, trustworthiness, conscientiousness, adaptability, innovation.


Never knew….

“Worry is a bully. It depends on how much we feed. The more we feed the bigger it gets…”
