Use body language: your own eye movement for self growth

We may speak lies but our body does not. Use this fact to know more about yourself. You can use body language as a tool to know more about yourself and then use the gained information about yourself to fix yourself. Just do it more willingly and it will show you the results.

In this post, I am focusing on the eye movement, when mind is thinking.

Here are the key points.

Are you thinking about past or future?

  • Looking left is thinking about future. 
  • Looking right while speaking is thinking about past.

Which type of information are you accessing visual, auditory or emotional?

  • Looking upward while talking means you are accessing visuals. 
  • Looking sideways at the level of ear means you are accessing auditory data.
  • Looking downward means you are recalling or thinking with emotions.

Following are the combinations from two set of points - past/future and visual/auditory/emotional mentioned above. Observe how you switch gears to different areas when you listen and respond.

  • Looking up-left is about visualizing or creating something new, may be about future. 
  • Looking up-right is about visualizing or remembering past.
  • Looking sideways-left is about thinking new with sound, accessing the auditory signals. 
  • Looking sideways-right is about remembering sounds from the past.
  • Looking downward-left eye movement is about feeling something new. 
  • Looking downward-right is about feelings from the past.

It may be hard to do but it is worth it. Practice to observe yourself. This is the way you get first hand information about yourself and then work on it. How do you work with this information?

  • When you want to get the information from past but you observe looking left, you are still worrying about future. Then, you check whether you are looking upward, sideways or downward. Then, you know whether you are accessing visual, auditory or emotional data.
  • When you are planning something but seeing right, you are more in past. Then, you check whether you are looking upward, sideways or downward. Then, you know whether you are accessing visual, auditory or emotional data.

It is OK to switch between past and future. It is also OK to shift from one to another among visual, auditory and emotions. Point is to maintain the balance. Use different sources of information without getting overwhelmed by only one of them.

Understand yourself and you understand the people around you. Whole world is nothing but the way you look at the world. Most of the times, whole world is your world only, it is everything that you perceive of it.

So, go fix it, your own world. And, the whole world gets fixed. I hope this helps.

Mahavatar Babaji Temple in Chennai

Locals call it "Siddhar Babaji Temple", "Siddhar Babaji Ashram" and also "Rajini Ashram" as it is frequently visited by Superstar Rajinikanth. So, ask with these names for guidance from local people.

I was a bit confused about the exact location of the temple whether it is in Malaipattu or Padapai. Then, I got to know that it was near Manimangalam. So, I headed towards Manimangalam.

To reach Babaji temple from Chennai, you have to reach Maimangalam. I was staying in a hotel in Kilpauk, Chennai. I took a cab from there and asked him to take me to Manimangalam. There, I inquired about Malaipattu. Malaipattu is 4km from Manimangalam. Going from Malaipattu bus stop towards the Babaji Temple, there is Kalyana Srinivasa Perumal Temple, it has a big image of Sri Anjaneyar. You may prostrate before Anjaneyar and then proceed further.

You will reach the calm and vibrating abode of Babaji at Malaipattu/Padappai. Note: Carry enough eatables, fluid, fruits with you …

educoin - the digital currency of learning

Imagine having a wallet, call it eduwallet, on a public ledger where your learning is recorded in multiples of 'one hour learning record' called edublock. The ledger is powered by blockchain, same technology that powers bitcoin. Then, what would be the equivalent of bitcoin in the education space? Let us call it educoin – a collection of karma i.e. individual learning experiences, where every learning-experience is a karma.

The public ledger with edublocks will enable everyone to receive credit from anyone. Similar to bitcoin, this will be beyond the boundaries of institutions, schools and universities. So, the formal learning institutions will, sooner or later, embrace the technology and will need to adapt to the new emerging models. All learning will become recordable and measurable in the public domain.

Educoin will radically decentralize education and make it more transparent and learner centric. As we see with bitcoin, there is no central authority, no goverment, no ban…
