When The Past Is Present

In the book, ‘When The past is Present’, David Richo goes into how our past can still influence what is taking place in our present This was a book I read in 2012, so I can’t remember any specific details about it.

However, I had an experience recently that clearly demonstrated how what took place in the past can impact the present. I often spend a certain amount of time in an environment where, at times, I feel as though I’m walking on eggshells.

Unstable

As to whether or not I can relax depends on if a certain person is there or not; if they are, I feel as though I have to be on alert and, if they are not, I can settle down. When I crossed paths with this person a little while ago, my inner world soon changed.

And what added to this experience was when this person ended up making a big deal over something that hadn’t been done. I already felt tense, and I ended feeling emotionally overwhelmed.

The Outcome

Afterwards, part of me became angry and I thought about getting my own back. I could have felt like a victim and seen this person as a perpetrator, which would have meant that I played no part in what took place.

One way of looking at this would be to say that there was absolutely no reason for me to feel this way as my life was not under threat. But, when this situation is looked at from a deeper place, it is possible to see the bigger picture.

A Mirror

There are two parts here: what happened between me and the other person, and what caused me to spend time in this environment to begin with. How I feel when I’m around this person is similar to how I used to feel around my mother as a child – she was emotionally unstable, to say the least.

Many years have passed since that time but, the trauma of those years had stayed within me. How I felt, along with the beliefs I created during this time, is then what played a big part in me having this experience and being drawn to this environment.

Self-Awareness

Now, it wasn’t pleasant for me to have this experience, and if I hadn’t been aware of what was going on, I would have believed that I played no part in what took place. This doesn’t mean that I’m ‘special’ or have a special ability; it’s simply the result of all the work I have put in to understand myself since 2003.

The experiences that I had as a child set me up to feel comfortable with being around people who were emotionally unstable. This became what was familiar, and what is familiar is what is safe to the ego mind.

Final Thoughts

Before this incident took place I was aware of how an early wound was being played out with this person, yet my awareness increased after this took place. Up until this point, it was as though I was looking though a window that wasn’t completely clear.

Due to the work I had done on myself, I was able to observe what was taking place within me. If, on the other hand, I had been identified with it, it would have stopped me from being able to see how my external world was mirroring back what was taking place within me.

Sustainable Homes – why every homebuyer is following this green trend?

The concept of green housing gains relevance in the contemporary context due to increased pollution in cities and growing awareness of eco-friendly homes, particularly among millennials. At a time when the entire country is dealing with rising pollution levels, the belief that such houses dramatically lower pollution levels. It is promising a better and healthier living in the future, is gaining traction among purchasers.

Green construction in India has grown dramatically in recent years. The country now ranks fourth in the world for green building. This has been made feasible by millennials looking for ways to live and work in tech-savvy, low-carbon buildings.

Green homes – the future realty

Millennials don’t only want houses; they want green houses built with sustainable materials and a higher emphasis on environmental cleanliness. The belief that green houses dramatically lower pollution levels, assuring a better and healthier living in the future, is gaining appeal among homebuyers. They are cheerfully taking all means to reduce their carbon footprint. The first place they start is at home. And they don’t mind paying extra for the house if it means lower utility expenses in the long run.

Benefits of green homes

Covid-19 has raised awareness regarding the influence a person’s living and working environment may have on their health and the health of their family. We spend 90 percent of our time inside our houses. Green buildings also prioritise the health and wellness of its people, which will eventually help cities become more sustainable and reduce environmental stress, says Atul Goel Ganga, the MD of Goel Ganga Group.

A long term investment
Purchasing a green house is a long-term investment in their families and future generations. This concept encourages young people to invest their money in such green homes.

Green houses, appear to be gaining traction as millennials shift toward more sustainable housing. Goel Ganga Group projects tend to attract millennials since Gen Y investors seek homes that are not only sustainable but also eco-friendly, provide higher returns on investments, minimise recurrent costs, and assure a healthier and better quality of life, states Atul Goel Ganga Pune.

Higher ROI
Real estate investments are undertaken with the goal of maximising profits, but the traditional housing market has remained stagnant for quite some time. Taking lessons from the traditional housing downturn, new age investors are aiming to invest in green homes. When it comes to green homes, the returns on investment are substantial. They are not only sustainable but also long-lasting.

Energy Efficient
The rising cost of power is a major source of concern. As a result, opting green when it comes to house selection might be a wise decision. The developers that are involved in the construction of green houses tend to use renewable energy resources. The design also helps to reduce power expenses to a large amount.

Green houses are also successful in lowering carbon emissions because they use renewable energy resources. In layman’s terms, these dwellings may effectively decrease utility expenditures while simultaneously saving energy resources and lowering carbon emissions.

According to Atul Goel Pune, all the projects of Goel Ganga Group has energy saving projects such as, rain water harvesting, including materials, natural ventilation, and daylighting.

Leveraging technology
Green houses appeal to millennials, who are very interested in technology. The technology utilised in the construction of green homes aids in resource conservation since Gen Y can rely on AI and robots. It helps to remotely manage the use of electrical equipment, saving both time and money.

With the rising impact of industrialisation on the environment, the notion of green housing is progressively making its way into Indian markets. In terms of real estate, India appears to be choosing for sustainable or green structures, but not mandatorily.

Conclusion

Buildings or residences may adopt minor improvements to embrace green design concepts. Occupants can utilise healthier and more eco-friendly materials, such as low VOC paints, install solar panels to boost energy efficiency, and focus on resource conservation by optimising their energy and water consumption. Using energy-saving lighting and equipment can also make a significant impact.
