Throughout his life, Shalin was always known to be jotting down notes on his phone.
The notes below, along with several other writings, were found by his friends and family.
Now known as "Shalin's Manifesto," these notes are a brief snippet of the great message
that Shalin wanted to leave behind as part of his legacy to help others live fuller, happier lives.
No room for hatred in my heart
Stay positive, no time for negativity, no complaints or regrets, ban negative thoughts
Life is perfect. I would not change one thing about Life or about myself or anyone or anything I know, everyone in the world is perfect in their own ways and serves a specific role in the universe
Do not judge people (you are no better than everyone else and they are no better than you, don't mind yourself with what others choose to do, truly wish for the happiness of others
Be self-confident and proud of the quirks and idiosyncrasies of who you are because you are part of an ecosystem that would not be the same without your existence (you play an essential role in the universe)
Only concern yourself with your own decisions and actions, be mindful of how much you need (don't take more than what you need) know what you want out of life and only take the necessary resources to execute your life's ambitions
Minimize gluttony and waste, waste is an unavoidable part of life
I want everyone else to be as happy as they possibly can be (I want to help them reach their wildest ambitions)
I want to volunteer and give to the less fortunate, I want to take my more fortuitous situation and spread it to others
Life is perfect, all of the quirks are what makes life beautiful, the essence of being a human being is beautiful, time is a flowing stream and measurements of time (i.e. Minutes, days) distract you from the fact that time is a constant stream, metaphysics and the workings of nature are beautiful and I have the utmost appreciation for everything
Keep an open mind: do not have preconceived notions, put in an effort to like things (songs, celebrities, people)
I have an infinite understanding, I understand everyone else's decisions because they are fundamentally human like me and we are all driven by the same and I can never be mad at them for making any decision
Circle of life. Ecological network. Reincarnation. Nirvana.
The greatest joys come from the simple things in life. Appreciate the simple things.
Bad has to exist in order to appreciate good, relativity and perspectives
Love and happiness are essential forces like gravity
Show appreciation and thanks to everyone for even very small acts
There is no need to try to impress others and make them jealous, do what you want to do, no matter what you do in life you cannot be arrogant because everyone is human, no better or worse than you. At the same time, there is no reason you should feel jealous or insecure around others regardless of their achievements, good looks, wealth, etc.
Teach others how to live happier lives
Enjoy everything you do, even those which you do not like doing
Giving to others is an act of spreading love
Do not do things for personal gain, do not look for recognition or praise
Do not take advantage of others
Do not compete with others or compare yourself with others
Fill yourself with energy, boundless energy, feel alive
Life is what you make of it, make the most of it and put in the effort to excel
