Hack your life

This blog has taken a sudden shift from ultra l33t hacker articles to articles relating to the life of a hacker. But that, I suppose is a good thing. Now it won't be boring for anyone.

Today, I will tell you the greatest hack that was ever discovered. The hack can and has changed several lives. But only for those that have known it and done it. If you know this, you can hack your life! But first, it requires you to hack your mind.

As with all of us, on a wide basis, we all have two kinds of philosophies:
  1. Everything happens for a reason
  2. There is no such thing as reason. Everything is an accident.
People going with the second philosophy never really do anything. And the people going with the first one, eventually come up to an inference that there is something which is known as "FATE". From what I see, both are mistaken. There is no such thing as fate. And nothing is an accident. Whatever we see happening in front of us, is in some way or the other invited by us. At some point of time, we have imagined that happening. And that is the sole reason why it is happening.

What I am trying to do here is share what I know. My motive here is not to change what you believe, but to show you the truth. It is however, upto your discretion  to do what you think is right.

You look back. Say, 20 years back from now. There was telephone, and there was this newly born Internet (newly born in the sense that the general public had just started using it). The world had already started seeing cases of cyber crimes. Those included a great deal of social engineering. Calling people up in organizations and then pretending to be a government official or maintenance staff or something and then extracting relevant information from them. People used to think that one day, in near future, there will be no prank calls. Everyone would know who is calling. Everyone will know the calling number, and after some time, they'd know the name. And after that, they might even know what the purpose of the call is!

Now fast forward to the present. We first had caller IDs coming to the market. We started getting numbers. But eventually, we figured it was hard to remember all the numbers. So, it became necessary now, to know the name as well. So, we started having phone books, which would tell the name of the person calling now.

What my point in telling all this is that when you think of something that isn't there (not just in the realm of technology), you fear it. Eventually when that does start happening, you slowly accept it, and at a certain point of time, it all becomes "normal".

Have you ever wondered why it is like, someone or some groups of people imagine a certain thing, which might turn into fear or absolute awe, becomes reality after some time?

Well, I gotta tell you, it's mostly because they communicate it with others. When many people start wondering about the same thing, it materializes faster. Now, guess what? Everyone's probably thinking about 2012. After the movie is out, the mayan controversy is back again. More people now know about this. As a result, more people think about this same thing. This is not the way it should be. Because if we think about it over and over again, it will definitely materialize. But when we do a little more research on the Internet, we come to know that it is what archaeologists and scientists "think". This may or may not be true that the Mayan saw the end of the world coming. It might have been some other cause. But, this very thought is taking us closer to the end. Now I cannot change how the world thinks, but I can suggest a better way of trying to make things better (favorable).

One thing I have learned in all this time is, "Thoughts become Things". If you think something about some event or material, it will eventually materialize.

Pertaining to the last post, where I wrote about how pathetic the situation is. It is not because it is what it is. We have been witnessing some of it, and have been thinking the same since the last few decades. As a result, this has been exponentially increasing. The more we try to run from them, the more we go towards them. That's how things work. The only way out of this would be think about what you want, rather than what you don't want.

With these words, I make the last post or rather, this post, controversial. I am saying exactly the opposite of what I did. But, the only justification I'd give to that, is that if I didn't post that, there was no point in posting this article.

My point also, is that competition is not what takes us towards "the greater good". It is creation. This can be proven from day to day experience. And if you are in India, and have been a good student, as they call it, at some point of time, you'd understand this. If your aim is to top the class, you'd always think of beating the person in front of you. In all, you'd be left trying to be better than a set standard, but you can never understand what really is the "standard" that is supposed to be good. In fact, there is none. You define what you want and if you take the steps to get it, you definitely will.

A mass trend in thoughts is leading us all to what we are going to. If we have to change something which pertains to all of us, all of us, or at the very least, most of us should think that way.

Well, it has far wider implications than is evident.

mou said...

hmm...i agree with the thoughts, especially cause i have seen it really working...some time back read a book 'the secret' by rhonda byrne...it's also based on 'thoughts become things' philosophy...guess you will like it if you have not read it yet...

bharatpantula said...

dude, it's high time we just did something without so much of thinking going into it.

I understand that you detest this system, and have written it in your last too...

But some you just need to act, act to show the world, you're an infant, stupid and ruthless.

So just say, 'let it be' and do whatever you want.

Xtreme_Great said...

@bharatpantula My point here is right that - Do what it is that you want. The bottom line is, if you really want to have what you want, this is how you get it.

@mou Actually, it all is derived from writers including but not limited to Rhonda Byrne (She was the beginning, but didn't really teach how to take over your thoughts), Neale Donald Walsch (Really gives a detailed insight into the subject) and Wallace D Wattles (who limits this concept to "how to get rich")

i regret nt hvin followed it in d last couple of mnths....mindtwisting philosophy, bt true nevertheless

Vishnu said...

that ws a good provoking post.. but i felt u conveyed the right message in the wrong way.. what i interpreted is that the message is do what u want and u'll eventually get it.. the way u have explained it using the "thoughts becoming things" philosophy aint right.. jus thinking or dreaming abt somethin doesnt help u attain it.. rather a desire can help u achieve it.. a thought is different from a desire in the way that the former is mind controlled while the latter is heart controlled.. its jus another stupid game between mind and the heart.. u decide..

Xtreme_Great said...

@Vishnu Adding a bit of logic as you put, to your thought here, isn't heart just pump blood throughout the body and not think? Isn't it the brain think, and generate feelings?

It is only after we have learned the difference between the way we think (the controversial thinking with multiple standards) and get to the definitive thought (where the brain is the brain and the heart is the heart, where if you consider a book to be god, then you give the same "respect" to a piece of paper lying on the streets, although it turns out at this stage to be something that doesn't matter. Both are and none is), that we shall understand this thing.

@Vishnu Actually, I gotta admit that did miss the part where you really have to exploit the chances you get after you have thought of what you want. If one loses those opportunities as well, then that person can be nothing more than a day dreamer.

Vishnu said...

abey.. dont u know abt the classic mind-heart thing.. every1 knows the brain is only responsible for all ur feelings.. but the problemis brain sees logic and sense in its every decision.. whereas the heart thinks for ur own good.. the heart thinks a bit narcisstic.. love could be the best example i could quote here.. u shdnt see logic in love.. it is unconditional.. thts y we use the heart..

u r right abt the day dreamer..

Xtreme_Great said...

@Vishnu I actually know the point you are placing. But honestly, I never witnessed that "unconditional love" thing. So, I don't really believe in that any more. I was just trying to place it from my perspective. But again, it is up to the person reading it, to derive the inferences based upon his/her experiences.

Shivam Maheshwari said...

Wow...U blew me up this tym....O.o

Minnie said...

What human mind describes as "unconditional love" needs a few basic conditions too.So by logic,there is no such thing as an unconditional love..Wot exists is love with lesser of more conditions as compared to a reference relation...

Xtreme_Great said...

@Minnie Actually, there can be only one condition in a relationship. The two persons may or may not have things in common. In fact, many things won't be in common. But if one person finds something that the other does (or is), and he/she isn't, it is necessary that he/she acknowledges the difference, and make the other person know that he/she doesn't have any problem with that. Learning to love what the other person does is not an option, because this is all spontaneous. What can be done, is to love the person and be indifferent to what he/she does. Same applies to the other person.

And that is the only condition for a relationship to work out.
