.Awakening - Bollywood
xxx | Reviewed & appended: UNDER REVIEW
The world's focus has turned towards MONEY, because with Money you can live a comfortable life. People think they can experience PEACE, CONTENTMENT, and STABILITY with Comfort. Unfortunately (or should I say Fortunately), that is not true, and today's Mental Health Crisis across the world is the proof of that.
What role does Bollywood play in all of this?
As youngsters (especially, if we don't belong to privileged backgrounds), we tend to CRAVE for some basic things. Things like Love, Understanding, Money, Care, Romance, and Sex. When we see that in abundance on the big screen, we tend to develop false perceptions of a non-existent Perfect Life, and even though we shouldn't, we are Emotional Beings. Social Comparison (no matter how illogical or invalid) is natural to us. The relatable emotions that movies evoke from within us make us believe in those fantasies as being real, and when we don't see even whiffs of those moments in our real lives, we tend to feel bad about ourselves.
💡 At the same time, we watch these so-called "Celebrities" living luxurious, magnificent, rich, and perfect lives. No matter how 'peaceless' their lives might in reality be, we tend to believe that they are living superior and better lives as compared to us.
This is exactly how even the Social Media (the next immediate after Movies) makes us want to live "perfect lives" that do not exist on this planet.
These are the insecurities that Bollywood Movies & Social Media Products bank on.
🧠 Even though (as some filmmakers say) events and emotions in Movies are inspired by what's happening in the real world, the inducement of delusions that movies subtly do through soft influencing happens unfailingly, because of the exaggeration with which those delusions are portrayed.
Yeah, I may have randomly watched some movies with some people just for "Outing" purposes, but it has NOT been done to consume 'Bollywood' entertainment.
I prefer watching Horror, Zombie, Animation, and Dinosaur movies just because there is a sense of FUN and DETACHMENT in them. Zombies don't evoke romantic feelings within me 😂 Utne bure din nahi aaye hain mujh pe...

Destroys the Fabric of the Society
Well, it's not 100% true or 100% false.
I am aware that Aditya Chopra / Karan Johar don't come to our houses asking us to create delusional or false beliefs about life, however, Filmmaking is ultimately a Business. It's not just "a creative place to satisfy your cravings for displaying art". As CREATORS at such a massive level, filmmakers only tend to focus on that which is profitable, and not what's RIGHT.
Yes, RIGHT and WRONG are NOT subjective. What's right is right. What's wrong is wrong. No matter what the context is. Jumping a red signal is wrong. Period.
🧠 When Pizza and Burger Outlets are opened near College Campuses, do you think that nobody knows that this food is NOT good in the long run? Specially when consumed at a young age? Still, it is only profitable to open these joints where most of the youth moves around.
🧠 When a Hateful or Sexually Suggestive REEL is BOOSTED on Instagram, do you think that nobody (incl. the Policy Makers who wrote those Excel sheets / Moderators who follow those Excel sheets like donkeys) knows that that Content is NOT good for the youth? Still, it is only profitable to BOOST such REELS, because it evokes reactions, responses, and screen-time from the stupid, unemployed, uneducated youth of the country. A margin, of course. 💡 2-minute Silence for those who think that videos on YouTube / Instagram automatically go viral.
🧠 When a movie is made that subtly suggests hatred / hyper-sexuality, violence, arrogance, sadness, do you think that nobody knows that it is harmful to the Mental Health of the youth consuming it? Still, movies, songs, and dialogs are curated to the taste of the demographics that would consume it the most. And youngsters are 24x7 sad (does not exclude me - I also had "sad feelings for no reason" from 18-24.), so they make someone like Arijit Singh cry on the mic to gain maximum profits.
I may sound like a villain here. But I'm just being blunt. Not hateful. It's all business. It all may fall under Business Ethics. However, it does not fall under Emotional Ethics or the Ethics of Happiness or Well-being.
They do everything like humans but watch television.

"Be the change"
That movie star that you're chasing probably does not deserve the amount of Time, Energy, and Attention you're giving him / her. He was / is just there to fill his bank account.
Energy does not travel! You gravitate Scenarios.
You read above that everything that is happening in your life is due to the Law of Attraction.
💡 So, if your kids are constantly fighting with each other, does that mean that you have magnetized it? Absolutely Yes. Blame them only 50% for it. 0% in fact. If you witnessed an accident on the road, did you magnetize that scene into your life? Absolutely Yes. Each and everything you experience in life is magnetized by you and only you. Well, what you witness may also happen independently... in your absence, e.g. the road accident, the children fighting, but if you witnessed and experienced that scene, you magnetized it. It means that you had the Tendency within you that caused you to magnetize it.
Now, depending on your will-power and inner-strength, you face the situation. So, one parent may get furious watching his kids fight, whereas the other parent may just not care about it. Nevertheless, both these parents magnetized the situation individually.
The Mind / Soul is non-physical (meta-physical) and so is Energy. So, Energy does not physically travel as such in time and space, however, whatever is present in your Thoughts and Feelings, based on your Actions, you see or bring those kinds of circumstances into your life. For example, if you want someone to get healthier, it is not that your Thoughts reach them and they get healthier. It means that you see only their healthier side. If they have the will-power, they get completely well and that is how you think that your Thoughts changed them. Actually, you cannot take any credit towards their wellness. Yes, you may share that Thought with them, and inspire them, however, the rest is not in your hands.
In any case, you experiencing a life-situation is purely based on what YOU contain within.
It responds to you individually.
It does NOT care about what's happening
in others' lives.
It's NOT Black & White
It is not black-and-white, because your Energy is not black-and-white. You can be negative and magnetize positive people towards you. However, that will not help you in the long run. Also, if you are negative and you magnetize negative scenarios, it does not mean that the fault lies only with you. The world is full of negativity. Same goes for situations when you are positive and magnetize positivity or negativity.
So, how to find what needs change in yourself, especially if you do not want to magnetize what you may be magnetizing?
🧠 Well, if you observe your life, at least for the significant situations that cause you emotional pain, you will observe a pattern. Irrespective of whether or not there is a pattern to undesired situations, all you need to check is how you feel while facing the situation. If you like something, you feel good, thereby expecting more of it.
🛠 If you don't like something, you feel bad, expecting less or none of it. Once you consciously recognize your Feelings, thank the situation for mirroring your Feelings to you. Then go back and check the underlying Perceptions or Beliefs or Assumptions you may be carrying in your mind. Form Beliefs in your own words, if required. Check if they are correct or if they make sense.
No one else can do it for you. Elevated knowledge based on some truths of life - such as that mentioned on this website - can help you correct your Beliefs and Perceptions, and change or modify them as necessary.
Let's take an example - I visit a Shopping Mall in a pretty ordinary mood (neither happy nor sad). I shop for all that I require, and then come to the billing counter to come across the biller boy who is not focused on his work. He cracks jokes with his co-workers, bills the items incorrectly, and does not do his job well. Now, suppose this makes me uncomfortable (not just because my time is wasted, but because he is not giving his customer proper attention), I experience discomfort, I will be irked. I may instantaneously shout at him and try to teach him what's right.
This indicates that I have several Beliefs, such as, "Sellers should treat customers well and with politeness", "A customer is allowed and supposed to get angry", "I am a customer", "He will do his job well after I teach him a lesson" and so on. Let's take these few for now and dissect them:
• "I am a customer." True, but that does NOT mean that I need to be rude or angry or upset. I can still keep my dignity intact.
• "Sellers should treat customers well and with politeness.". Well, yes, they should, but if they don't, it is not compulsory for me to disturb my mood.
• "A customer is allowed and supposed to get angry.". Wrong.
• "He will do his job well after I teach him a lesson.". Not necessarily.
Well, if you want people to be scared of you, and if you enjoy getting angry at someone, and expect them to continue to be good to you, that's a separate story altogether (not in the scope of this website).
Beliefs are formed as a result of cyclic events - We PERCEIVE events based on our BELIEFS, which are essentially our THOUGHTS. We then FEEL accordingly, and then re-affirm our BELIEFS. This creates our PACKAGE OF BELIEFS / ENERGY. This results in the Law of Attraction to bring Energy-matching circumstances in front of us (in the form of people and situations). Although it's a cycle, and even though a cycle does not have a start or an end, we are the Creators of our Thoughts, and we are the ones who have the power to break the cycle at any point. Even if a Belief has been built up over thousands of years, it doesn't necessarily take another thousand years to erase it. It can be erased within a second, and this depends on your conviction and more importantly, your willingness to change it.
(though it starts from the conscious place)
and that's the level at which the law of attraction works.
It is not only a tried and tested guaranteed method by me, but also by quite a few people I have advised this - When a difficult person comes across you and behaves in a particular way (may be through words, gestures, or even looks), notice YOUR Feelings. They will lead you to your Beliefs. You have to identify your Beliefs and bridge them (thought-by-thought) slowly and then change them to positive beliefs. Nobody else can do it for you. If you want to see change in your life, you have to make these efforts - not just once after reading this, but consistently. You will start seeing results only after a consistent, regular, uninterrupted practice of a couple of weeks. Changing Beliefs is not difficult at all. However, it's a change. Like how it is not difficult to re-paint the house, but it needs consistency, efforts, and time, so is this. However again, if you do this so that others change, it will never work. If you do this so that your life experiences change, it will definitely work.
You will get it only if you want it
Here's a very important understanding that you should have - It is your Thoughts and overall Energy about your Life that brings you what you want. If you are a person who believes in having only peace and not very fond of physical materials, you will definitely be a peaceful person living in little, and that's perfectly fine for you. However, if you have not created the Thoughts of wanting a car or a house, the Universe or God or whoever will not say, "Hey, he / she is such a nice and selfless boy / girl, let's gift him a complimentary car or house, because he is peaceful." That's NOT how it works.
It is essential that you energetically work towards your Desires. This is where "Happiness in the Present" plays an important role. Happiness is the predecessor of physical manifestations. A physical manifestation, however, will not be the successor of happiness, when it is not desired. If I am happy in my life right now, and I simply do not want a bungalow, why on earth will I get one?
There is no "Buy 1 Get 1 FREE" offer in the Universe, where if you are working towards only Peace, you will get a Lover too (when you are consciously not wanting it)!
It works like Google Search
Suppose you want to search for "heart shapes" on the Internet, what will you enter in the Google's Search Bar? Obviously, "hearts" or "heart shapes" or something like that. Correct?
Now, tell me, if you DON'T WANT "chocolates" to be listed in the search results, and you enter "No Chocolates" in the Google's Search Bar, what will happen? Your search results will be full of chocolates.
This is exactly how the Law of Attraction works. When you say, "I don't want that irritating person in my life", or "This world is horrible / impure", or "People are so troublesome and viceful", or "I hate this ghor kalyug" or "I don't want to be lonely", that's exactly what you'll get back multiplied.
You magnetize / amplify whatever you think about - whether you like it or dislike it, whether that's what you want or that's what you don't want. This happens because you haven't changed your Thoughts and Beliefs and are exaggerating the unwanted in your mind.
You cannot repel anything from you as such. All that you need to do is change its Perception in your Mind. To not search it in Google's bar, simply don't enter that text. Similarly, to not experience that in your life, just focus on something else altogether until your energy changes.
