How to become a good receiver? It’s when I become a good listener
How can I listen clearer? It’s when noise within me becomes calmer
How to calm this chaotic chatter? It’s when I breathe little bit deeper
I started breathing deeply by sitting still, its then my thoughts got time to settle
I listened to the Magical Whisper of my own heart beat, It was telling me don’t just quit
Everything happen for reasons; even nature undergoes various seasons
You are holding on to cravings so tightly; take it easy and let them go lightly
Right now feel that Freedom you wish to find; open fully the doors of your mind
Let that enthusiasm rush in every cell of your body
and flood it with lots of love and light so bright
That’s time you know what you can do with what you have; which will cease all that inner fight
Moment of realization of power of grace itself is the moment of receiving shower of Grace!
So be peaceful and listen to the divine Magical Whisper , be grateful to become the Best receiver!
7/ 22 /2018 Billion $ SMILE :Complaint Box
There are Complaint Boxes with everyone
Either of someone or of their own
Complaint Box full of justifications
Either of owner’s righteousness or of dissatisfaction
Every time one fails, they have this Complaint Box to bang upon
Full of reasons, explanations like their own comfort bean bag cushion
Can we disown this Complaint Box full of restrictions?
Can we go beyond hurdles of limitations?
Yes of course, we can...
We can cross the boundaries and get happiness
When we shift our focus from Complaint box to Compliment box
Instead of agitating for what we lack; and becoming nervous
We become thankful for what we have in abundance
Not just once but every day, every moment
Every time we fall in deep disappointment
We let go and flow with ease
We bow down and feel the power of grace,
Then Miracle happens...
Our life gets tuned to unperturbed contentment
Stuck and Blocked mind gets engaged in amazement!
To keep us happy and peaceful,
Blessed and Grateful!
Billion $ SMILE :Curiosity 7/15/18
Deep in the heart, resides Curiosity,
Urge to resolve Mystery,
Desire of experiencing the essence of something
Thing that may seem attractive, interesting
The thrill that keeps us moving and pushing
Towards the dream destination, this is so fascinating
But moment dream destination arrives,
the charm seems vanishing
Then feelings of dullness and frustration,
Followed by emptiness darkness and suppression
Again new Curiosity dawns to resolve new Mystery
To ride on the way to new dream destination
This has been the journey of many, since ages
Many successful Emperors and Sages
Who kept on accomplishing the similar glorious pattern
Celebrating success and becoming Inspiration
Curiosity to Action to Thrill to Accomplishment to Bore dome
But then what could be the Path of True Freedom???
Billion $ SMILE : UNSTOPPABLE 5/19/18
Time moves ahead No matter what
Whether the day was happy or it was sad
Time moves ahead No matter what
Whether the day was sunny or it was stormy rainy
Time moves ahead No matter what
Whether the day was busy or it was clumsy lazy
Time moves ahead No matter what
Whether the day was a great satisfaction or it was filled with anger frustration
Time moves ahead No matter what
With every step of Moment So fresh and full of novelty
To embrace life with the gift of Spontaneity
Can we be with the rhythm of Time No Matter what
Refreshed Rejuvenated... Untouched Unstoppable...
3/5/2018 Billion $ SMILE : Rhythm
When mind calms down, it’s such a tranquil feeling,
no mud of chaotic thoughts, it’s only life and I am breathing.
Everything seems clearer softer and easier
each beat of my heart, I am enjoying.
No feeling like fear, hate, anger or guilt,
riding on the wings of silence is so charming.
Everywhere there is peace and compassion,
it’s in the ocean of love where I am dancing.
Past impressions, botheration,
pride and ego, all start dissolving.
It’s when I go, just beyond myself,
then something magical starts happening…
I become so hollow and empty like a flute,
through me divine energy starts singing
I then start floating with a rhythm so natural
with noiseless noise and voiceless voice so eternal!

Having knowledge is Superior,
But when we share it, that makes it feel Better...
Having up to-date information is Wonderful
But utilizing it for directing our actions, make it Useful...
Being present and doing our duty rightfully is Important
But becoming aware of purpose of our being is Brilliant...
Hearing what we like is our Freedom
But contemplating on it n expressing it timely, is Wisdom...
Having everything what we want is a Power of Grace
But doing Best with what we have is the
Ultimate Blossoming with the Power of Grace!

Most of us have experienced an awesome kick, when we drink a Mocktail or a Cocktail. Millions of people just look forward for such a Happiness kick which makes their world better, happier. Each one of us wants to get rid of stiffness, sharpness of bothersome thoughts because most of the time that seems to eat us up. We keep on looking for something that makes us forget all sorrows, unwanted thoughts, and unpleasant memories.
When we experience magical Happiness kick from within... one feels the expansion within, lightness like a soft feather and a relief of loosening of tightness inside...The whole world starts becoming wonderful again, life starts becoming interesting. This awesome feeling brings back smile on our face naturally. So each one of us keeps exploring for something that makes us feel good, relaxed, peaceful and happy.
A very simple, cost effective, healthful option to get such a happiness kick is Laughter.
What exactly happens when we feel the punch of Laughter? Once we start laughing, body releases chemicals called endorphins which are natural pain killer. These endorphins interact with the receptors in our brain and reduce our perception of pain. Endorphins also trigger a positive feeling in the body similar to that of morphine (1). Research studies have suggested a good laugh can even strengthen the heart, lower blood pressure, improve circulation by stimulating the nervous system and boosting the immune system, making it far more potent than many drugs.(2) Global movement is happening for Happiness Wellness and Peace. Laughter Universities are being established all over.
Proud to share this; laugher movement has begun in India by Dr. Madan Kataria in 1995. Laughter yoga is based on the belief that voluntary laughter provides the same physiological and psychological benefits as spontaneous laughter. According to a study done by Dr. Michael Titze, a German Psychologist, in the 1950's people used to laugh 18 minutes a day but today we laugh not more than 6 minutes per day despite the huge rise in the standard of living. (3)
Recently I have met with a very inspiring couple Mr. and Mrs. Kate, who are spreading laughter since last twenty years. Mr. Kate had begun with laughter therapy for improving his own heart problems. He passionately has instigated and trained many more people to laugh. He and his wife started more than 150 Laughter Clubs in Pune itself.
Surprisingly this treasure of laughter is hidden within us only. It’s just a matter of accessing it and that’s all! So what are you waiting for??? Start accessing...Start laughing...and experience the energy boost with your own Laughter punch! Embrace this healthful happiness kick...not just for one day but every day!
Curiosity is the mother of inventions. For understanding something new, we need to dive deep. Then see how the secret revels.
When I heard Conch blowing (We call it as Shankh), felt a wave of enthusiasm in my body. Then I was just trying to analyze with this sound what exactly happened. More I started thinking about it, it occurred to me that sound is inside and sound is outside. Doctors use stethoscope to listen to Heart, Lung, and Intestinal Sounds. Any disturbance in the rhythm of sound is indication of a disease. When sound becomes noise it is troublesome.
Conch is an amazing instrument which produces primordial sound. What is primordial sound? Primordial sounds are basic vibrations of nature, which are soothing to the nervous system and ability to heal. According to vedic philosophy, “OM” is primordial sound from which whole universe was created. The sounds produced by rustling of leaves or waves of ocean or a waterfall or the chirping of birds or the giggling laughter of a baby, are all primordial sounds. The instruments used by various deities of Hindu mythology. Flute- Lord Krishna; Damaru- Lord Shiva; Veena- Goddess Saraswati; and Conch- Lord Vishnu All these produce primordial sounds(1).Conch has tremendous ability to heal. Modern science has agreed those who blow conch regularly get health benefits for Heart, Lungs and Digestive system (2). German scientists have reported that diseases like thyroid and some other hormonal disorders are healed or significantly cured by the sound of conch (3). Renowned Scientist J.C. Bose has proved that the harmful invisible virus/insects disappear by the sound produced by Conch Shell (4). Surprisingly the sound waves generated by collective blowing of shank has are also believed to prevent spread of plague, cholera etc in the surroundings (5). The conch shell is also used in Ayurvedic Medicines. Its ash is commonly used to treat menopause. The conch shell consists of calcium, iron, and magnesium. It is well known in Ayurveda for its antacid and digestive properties (2).Now, researchers at MIT have explored the secrets behind these shells’ extraordinary toughness and they’ve shown that this superior strength could be reproduced in engineered materials, potentially to provide the best-ever protective headgear and body armour. Conch has unique three- tiered structure which makes it very hard for any tiny cracks to spread and enlarge (6).
I recently met with Mr. Madhukar Sidhaye who has inspired many more to blow conch. He is serving human kinds to improve inner environment as well as outer environment. You can enjoy listening and know more about him on http://www.smilewellnessfoundation.org/billlonsmile When I deeply think about sound, I realized when noise of various thoughts settle, universal primordial sound can be heard, felt which has power to bring back a natural rhythm of mind and body...Then life transforms into mere happiness with a unique SMILE on our face.

Our Breath is a Magical Swing. Emotions take a ride on it and we experience mood fluctuations...
Our body has a beautiful mechanism which begins with a Signal. First signal comes to us as a thought! A thought changes chemistry of our body. As per estimation of experts, mind thinks between 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts a day, which means 2500-3300 thoughts per hour (1,2). We human beings have a set of four basic emotions. Happiness, Sadness. Fear / Surprise, Anger / Disgust (3).
However, surprisingly, it is not just a thought which changes chemistry of our body. When emotion gets attached to any thought, it starts bringing about physiological changes in the body.
How? When any of the emotion rides on the swing of the breath...it changes a rhythm of the breath, which ultimately leads to the generation of various signals: trigger of various neurotransmitters, secretion of specific hormones or enzymes.
Interestingly a person at rest takes about 14-16 breaths per minute. This means we take about 960 breaths per hour, 23,040 breaths per day (4,5).
So basically it is a Cascade Reaction of Thought-Emotion-Breath-Neurotransmitters –Hormones- Enzymes. Then we experience obvious changes in the body or circumstances.
When Happiness is riding on the swing of breath, it takes smooth long big swings. We feel some expansion within and we may feel something bubbling inside; we feel lighter as if were flying or floating.
When Sadness rides on the swing of the breath, it holds the swing tightly. We experience some contraction within. It feels as if we are getting suffocated, or stuck, drained out.
When Intense Fear / Big Surprises arrive, they cannot ride on the swing of breath. So for a moment, our eyes are wide open, mouth is open, swing of Breath is paused, and everything is in standstill position.
When Anger / Disgust ride on the swing of Breath, they take such short and quick swings that everything seems to be shaken, it is like a turmoil for a while, when normal rhythm is almost lost, signals from body are shuffled. That’s the time when unwanted words, unusual actions take charge of our body and something unusual unexpected happens.
How to deal with such chaotic situations? How to maintain a normal body rhythm? How to take charge of our emotions?
We take pride to showcase our uniqueness by sharing or presenting ourselves with our choices about Food, Clothes, Shoes Jewellery etc. Likewise we need to be choosy about our thoughts. We have to consciously select our master-thoughts out of ~70,000 thoughts a day. Let’s take a charge of our emotions by maintaining a normal rhythm of the swing of our breath. Then See how the Magic begins...

Our lips are wonderful doors of our body which are very powerful. They are virtually controlled by our mind.
When we want to express our thoughts, lips open up and words come out; which have ability to create wonders, and power to cause blunders.
When we feel hungry or thirsty, lips open up, food which enters in; have ability to satisfy our hunger or pacify our thirst. If food taken adequately can heal our body or else it can kill our body.
When we like something or someone, lips open up to kiss, appreciate and enjoy the bliss. But if we feel dislike for someone just a tilt or twist in the shape can create a distance or discomfort in minds.
When we want to open doors of fortune, lips open and just push our cheeks up, spark in our eyes lits up, and that brings SMILE on our face. Which in turn open the doors of happiness to take you to the beautiful world of Miracles...
Once our body gets signal of a SMILE, trillions of cells start vibrating with the rhythm of happiness. Automatically breath becomes deeper, and mind starts becoming serene. Slowly the mud of confusion, chaos and uncertainty settles. Then clarity takes over. We become calm at a deepest part of our being. Slowly enthusiasm starts bubbling up rushes in nerves and veins and flushes out the slimy dullness, sluggishness of our body. We make a new beginning again to make a victory over our past inhibitions.
Thanks a lot my dear Lips for ultimately taking me to the Doors to Miracles through my SMILE, for making journey of my life exciting!
