Today, the 22nd June 2017, is a historic day for Savio DSilva. Because it is the day that I have completed the creation of an audio book that reveals my life story, well one side of it, inside it. The name of the audio book is 'The Wise Guru' and it will be available for download on
within the next 3 days. By the way, the name of the audio book is not for me, though I do consider myself a bit wise, it's for the great man who told me my future way back in 1997 but I was stupid and skeptical enough not to believe it. I hope that my listeners and students find this particular audio book of mine because this one is a real gem. It reveals one of life's greatest secrets at the end. This audio book is so valuable that I ain't sharing it with anyone but my family. If someone wants to know life's greatest secret then they must simply buy this audio book and listen to it.
Rains have hit the city full fledged again since the afternoon. The weather is really pleasant. I hope it stays this way for a few days at least so that some water can be reserved. Looking at the Chicku tree outside my living room window is a treat these days. It has small, small Chickus all over the tree. Having a fruit tree that too the one bears a lot of fruits on it, is truly a blessing.
It's been busy two days for everyone on the forum with back to back practice sessions and reading/analyzing. I hope the weekend will be relaxed as all have worked hard during the week.
Cut some spinach, cabbage and one chilli to small pieces. Fry them with little oil and salt and little amount of chilli powder. Keep aside the cooked substance.
Make small maida chappatis, and dry fry them. Add the cooked veggies into each chappathi and make it a roll and keep in a tawa and press them little so that the rolls get little tight. Serve them hot with tomato sauce for the evenings.
I joined a jewel chit through GRT a famous jewel shop. The total amount we pay each month, they will allocate the equivalent weight of Gold. Then every month, when we pay the chit amount the same worth of gold will be credited to our Account. At the end of 11 months, whatever weight of Gold has accumulated, we can buy Gold ornaments. No wastage, no making charges. So this is an ideal way to plan for buying golden ornaments, with no loss in wastage gold and no loss for paying the making charges. We will save around 17%. Because, when we buy golden ornaments they add 16.5% as wastage charges and also some amount towards making charges for the ornament.
Today I did some tailoring work for my mom in making some pillow covers and she felt so happy.
Right now the most beautiful place would Lonavla. Malshej Ghat is also amazing during the rains. The similarity in both these places are that, they both have tall mountains, greenery all over and waterfall playing hide seek while you drive all along the way.
There is a lot to learn from a rainy evening like today. It's remarkable how we are enjoying the first heavy rainfall this monsoon while in another part of the world people are celebrating the first day of Summer. It's life at her best for each and every one of us. The Ramadan fasting period its nearing its end. Thank God. The tantalising smells all over this building are making me hungry at odd hours. The stomach growls whenever the aromas of a spicy curry or a tandoori kebab enter my window. I'm off to have a bite of something.
It's been raining heavily for the last hour. The surroundings have come alive, the leaves on the trees are the greenest green, the sounds of the raindrops are wickedly relaxing. It's gonna be a great evening alright. I fondly remember my childhood days at April Showers right now. I've spoken about those wonderful memories in my mini audio book 'The Monsoon Principle'. The smell of a spicy curry enters my bedroom window now. Someone preparing a late lunch or an early dinner. The sad part is that I might be getting a throat infection from my beloved wife as the doctor says it's contagious. U might have to shy sway from the cafe as well. Who know the virus might affect some of our loyal patrons too...
I am pleased to tell our regulars that I just finished a tiny audio book titled 'The Hidden Clock' which gives you some insight into the importance of setting your goals. A link to download this awesome mini audio book will be posted on the course forums and sent to you through our private messaging system if you are a member who isn't a student. I am sure this little audio will open your eyes to the value of goal setting.
This is supposed to be the monsoon season, and it rains almost everywhere. We are sad that there is no rain here at all. Very dry weather.
Some days I have surprise lunch. I carry lunch from home, neatly packed by my wife. Most of the days I will know what lunch it is, but certain days it is kept as surprise.
Today the surprise lunch was tamarind rice, french fries, two boiled eggs and some pickles. Simple, but very tasty.
A hectic day. On and off I came to the course forum and Cafe Enoma whenever I could spend some time. In between I felt very lethargic. I did my mindfulness for about 15 minutes sitting in a quiet room, without any disturbance. I just listened to the sound that I could hear, and after some time, I was on my own. I could feel my breath only. After some time, I felt totally refreshed.
It's a glorious Afternoon today. A busy morning kept me away from Cafe Enoma until some time ago. It's nice to come in here and relax in a quiet little corner so that no one disturbs me while I sip on a hot cup of fine Darjeeling Tea and while my time away during this mindful moment. The world seems to be more and more beautiful to me with each passing moment. It's amazing how differently we think when life is more meaningful for us everyday.
As usual, I'm keeping our regulars updated on my progress in our Audio Book career. Just few minutes ago, I successfully recorded and edited the 'Join The Dots' system audio book. This has been one of the most popular sessions during my classroom and online courses in Personality Development. I've even taken it up during a few Goal Setting seminars over the years with phenomenal feedback given to me each time. I am hoping to share this priceless system with few students of my online courses and some of our most loyal members on Cafe Enoma. If you don't receive a message from us by the end of the day then you can directly visit Osovo.com and download it from there at a nominal cost.
I am happy to receive wonderful feedback on my new audio book 'The Magical Seeds Principle'. I shared the download link with 4 people yesterday and surprisingly all 4 sent in their feedback by this morning itself. I always knew that the goal setting systems that I created were easy ones to understand and follow but it is only thanks to the feedback during our classroom courses and with these audio books that I have realized that I actually might have created something truly magical. Thanks once again for the awesome feedback, it inspires me to keep doing what I love to do.
Today morning very very busy , some guests are coming to home, preparing food for them.I like all of them too much.
The night is still, the gentle breeze is making it slightly cooler, the sounds of dogs barking suggest that tomorrow might be a rainy day since our ancestors used the sixth sense of dogs to predict floods and earthquakes. Of course, only some of us are blessed with a powerful sixth sense these days so it makes sense to pay close attention to what the friendly neighborhood dogs are trying so hard to tell us tonight...
The weather has been amazing on some days and not so amazing on other days. Off late, we are facing a dry spell in our city which means that there are going to be very heavy rains during July. Floods are expected and many unofficial holidays from school and work. The internet is usually busy in July and I expect the heavy rains to make it even more busy this year. Khandala, here we come....
Feeling so lonely, for so many days mom was around, now all alone till my husband comes home. I am roaming in the house like a ghost. But a smiling ghost.. I guess..
Sometimes it's so difficult to face the same issues again and again with different faces. Many a times its challenging, exciting.
Sometimes I wonder why some people are given something invaluable for free but yet due to some unknown reasons they don't make the most of it. I feel a but sad tonight since I've shared a priceless treasure with our online course students yet most of them have not even bothered to download it. I am speaking about the audio book series '12 Dozen Roses'. A treasure that's not your everyday audio book but something special.
What an amazing day for my audio book career. I just finished the creation of one of my most powerful Goal Setting systems 'The Magical Seeds Principle'. Though the system itself was taught inside my classrooms many years ago. It makes life easy when you realize that life is actually easy, only we complicate it. The Magical Seeds system will open your eyes to something you already knew. It will be available to download on Osovo.com for a nominal cost. Enjoy it and use it to your full advantage. Reaching our goals can be fun. Infact it is fun.
After a few days of scanty rains, it is dry weather now. However, the nights have become a little cooler; so less need to depend on the continuous running of air-conditioning.
Keep aside a fixed sum of money for saving ever month. Do not take it into account in your regular income. Gradually you will learn to adjust your budget within the available sum of money after setting aside the regular savings.
Making money seems to be like eating a piece of cake to some people, but to the overwhelming majority of people it is an endless, hard struggle.
Great successes do not come in one a big leap. It is simply an accumulation of small successes over a long period of time.
Pets are a miraculous way of busting the stress. Especially, our canine friends get along so well with human beings their role in busting the stress remains unsurpassed.
Yesterday, the whole day I could not visit the forum apart from checking it on my mobile phone off and on. It's nice to be back today though today also I am not feeling so good but don't like a backlog. I am already realizing how many sections and the entries I have missed by being absent for a day.
We always get what we ask for with sincerity and precision. It's just that we don't ask for the right things or the things that we ask for aren't asked with a clear and sincere intent. Since last year, I've been praying to God and thanking him for giving us 24x7 electricity and water. This prayer was done even though I didn't have 24x7 electricity and water in my earlier home. But God found a way to make my prayers come true. Simply because I prayed thanking God for giving us 24x7 electricity and water even though human forces stopped us from having it. God gave us an entry into our other family home in the big city of Mumbai where we enjoy 24 hours of electricity and tap water. Thank you God for giving me what I asked for with genuine and sincere intent. Thank you for giving me it without even actually asking you for it.
Life is beautiful during these slow Monsoon evenings. Infact, life is always beautiful, just a bit more when the rain drizzles down on such empty evenings. It's been a relaxing day today. Managed to complete my audio recording of one of my favorite and most popular short stories 'The Glass Vases'.
Sometimes You don't want people to advise you, you just want people to hear you and in some time you yourself come to the solution.
I am extremely pleased to have completed the recording of one of my favorite and most popular short stories 'The Glass Vases' in MP3 format. This audio story will be on sale on Osovo.com as well as on Enoma.info in the near future. However, I want every single student of both my online courses to have it right away since the morals shared inside the story will surely help them in their own personal lives and career too. I hope to share it inside the Audio Area of both course forums later this evening. Our cafe readers can download and listen to it from Osovo.com in the near future. Thanks for your patience.
I have just heard a rumor from a reliable source that there is going to be an intensive CBI investigation into the allegations of possible match fixing during the finals of the recently concluded Champions Trophy in England. I am hopeful that the cricketers involved in this shameful and unpatriotic match fixing are thrown in prison for the rest of their lives. They are a disgrace to the country and the sport. I feel ashamed to say that I am an Indian when I come to know how much money these players have taken to lose against Pakistan.
Not too many people know and realize that Meditation and Mindfulness come under the subject of Yoga. Millions of people in India and even more than 300 Million practitioners across the world practice Yoga daily. But there is a lot of problems in doing Yoga for obese people like me. Yoga is a very risky affair for children and older people too. The poses or exercises one must do in Yoga can easily injure you and every year Millions of people do get injured while practicing Yoga. It is much better to save a lot of money on yoga pants, yoga mats, travel costs, etc and practice Meditation at home instead. Meditation is a safe, relaxing, economical way to good mental and physical health. What's more it builds up your spiritual health too. I firmly believe that Meditation is part and parcel of our daily life. It is something we can practice while working, cooking, bathing, watching TV, listening to musing, surfing the internet, playing games, spending time with loved ones, etc.
Happy Yoga Day!! I just thought about how little tiny things matter in everyday life. When one such day comes along, where millions are practicing Yoga at the same time, one can only imagine from a business point of view how much money the yoga mat manufacturers must be minting on 21st June alone. I've been closely monitoring the DD News channel since early morning today and I have noticed that all the people who are celebrating Yoga Day have their own yoga mats. Since the cost of each mat is Rs.200+, we can safely assume that the yoga mat manufacturers have made more than 400 Million Rupees today. Not bad for a slim mat that is needed to do Yoga a bit more comfortably and without injury.
Life is such a great blessing. Being alive and well is an awesome feeling. It's a joy to be alive and experience life in all her beauty. Especially when we are healthy, both mentally and physically. But there is our spiritual health that must be developed too. Because it only when we are spiritually strong that we can appreciate and be grateful for life since we realize that being alive is better than being dead.
Technology helps me closely monitor the activity of each student on our online training program. We get a LIVE report of which student is on which page of our site and what they are likely to be doing on that page. Advanced technologies like mouse tracking help us learn the behavior of students while reading through important posts, course lessons, etc. It is much easier to analyze this data of students and prepare a better learning platform to enhance their growth during their course tenure with us. The sad part is that most of the time there are a couple of students who have made up their mind not to move forward in their learning. They just want to do enough to stay afloat and get a certificate from us. I can only feel sad for them since it's purely and totally their loss when they don't adapt and improve their performance...
It has been a rather fulfilling day, though loved ones being sick and slowly recovering makes my schedule a bit complicated these days. Being so busy has many advantages, the biggest being that I'm finding it even more relaxing taking short naps and meditating whenever I can. I realize that God has a plan for each one of us every single day. Certainly having health concerns is part and parcel of life especially in this season. Only hope is that everyone sees such things in a positive way too. I am making the most of things right now and I am learning plenty so thank you God for everything.
Meditation is a great relaxation method. Especially silent meditation while laying down. It feels good to switch off the lights, turn on the fans, lay down on the soft bed, close thy eyes and just experience the nothingness of this moment. There is nothing more pleasurable than doing some meditation after a long day.
After a long tiring day it's finally time to relax. I love to chill out in the bedroom with a large window. It is relaxing to be here, lying down on the bed, the soft violin and flute are playing on the stereo. It is a serene moment for sure. I am spending time with the two loved ones from time to time, I just might get their viral infection too, that will be a bit painful, as won't be able to do much work if that happens. Well no point thinking about the future when the now is so relaxing and comfortable...
Just being still at Nature's beauty is a great stress buster. The unconditional giving of Mother Nature nurtures our wholesome being. A good feel within. Thank you Nature.
Today evening, I was so stunned at the beauty of the Sky. The clouds with varied structures with colors like blue, grey, white.....wow! stunning beauty. Could not take my eyes. And the breeze that hit my face, chirping of birds, together with gazing of Sky....I was truly into another world. Mother Nature, you are a great healing therapist, I can bet for sure, no human therapist can conquer you. Nature, you are the best. Love and thanks to you.
I am really really really happy right now. I managed to record 2 mini audio books thus evening. Also cooked dinner and took a nice long shower before returning to the bedroom to relax under the ceiling fan. Both my wife and son are recovering from a viral fever so most of the household chores are my responsibility these days. It's always said that if you want to get some work done then give it to a busy person. How true this is.
I noticed one thing. During the summer, all the people pray to God for the rains, and later when it rains, the same people blame the God for the excess rainfall. Why don't they think that the God is giving them something in abundance? Suppose we ask for ten rupees, and if we get hundred rupees, can't we be happy about it?
We are going to get a long weekend this time, Saturday, Sunday and Monday (being Ramzan). We are planning to go to Mangalore, Udupi and Kollur in Karnataka. I heard that it is raining there, but we had already planned to go there.
The advertisement says not to use the mobile phone while driving. What about while walking on the road? Today, one person who was crossing the road had a very narrow escape from being hit by a bus. He was using the mobile phone while slowly crossing the road, enjoying his conversation. He was really lucky. It would be nice if we pay more attention to our surrounding while walking on the road. Anything can happen.
I feel kinda nostalgic today. Was going through my long articles for some new audio books that I will be recording this Monsoon. Most of these articles were written just after I retired from my classroom training career. So it's been a good 6 years or more since I've written them. These long articles are mostly lessons, principles, systems and tips which I've always wanted to record in audio format and finally I am able to do it. I feel nostalgic right now because I put my heart and soul into writing these long articles for a website that was very close to my heart. Today, that website is no longer online. I decided to take it offline 2 years ago as my work on Cafe Enoma, the course forums and other jobs took up most of my working time. But even though nostalgic I also feel very happy since finally those written classics will be available in MP3 format for hundreds and thousands of people to listen to in the years to come. Every single long article is a true gem and I hope to share a couple of them with the students of both my online courses today night or tomorrow. Fingers crossed and God willing. I'm about to start my first audio recording right this moment, wish me luck...
Someone suggested to me to rub in a circular motion at the back of the ears when we get a headache or when we are stressed. I tried, and it worked.
