If not now then when…
Will we distinguish the need and want
For between them is a line of balance
To understand in awareness
To acknowledge in understanding
Some needs are common to life & living.
But wants are more specific in nature.
The motivation of these wants
Is both intrinsic and extrinsic
Some wants are by nature
And some wants are formed in nurture.
To be motivated towards thinking
Of what to have and let go in time
Is a matter of discernment
In conscious consideration
A matter of introspection
To bring about waves of changes in action.
Moving beyond the apparent realities
It’s a matter of awareness of the imprints
Of life and living…
A subject of substantial deliberation
Not too common a pathway.
And yet an offbeat road leads to surprising revelations
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.” – Mother Teresa
Love these words by Mother Teresa, a kind soul that showed the way of kindness in giving.
Every single selfless act in devotion leaves the world feeling a little better than before…
Yes there is much to do To make our world better There is so much left to improve Sometimes we are full of doubts About can we ever do enough Is what we share or do, right at all?
No matter the doubts simply share With all your heart ❤ You are meant to do much, much more Than what you can even imagine. You will find yourself along the way. Share your gifts with joy in giving. And fulfil your purpose of being.
For any person who is much too stressed or confused at the moment…do read this.
A rare conversation between Krishna & Today’s Arjun. Read it loud to family,
it’s one of the best message I have come across…
1. Arjun :- I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.
Krishna:- *Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.*
2. Arjun :- Why has life become complicated now?
Krishna :- *Stop analyzing life… It makes it complicated. Just live it.*
3. Arjun :- Why are we then constantly unhappy?
Krishna :- *Worrying has become your habit. That’s why you are not happy.*
4. Arjun :- Why do good people always suffer?
Krishna :- *Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer.With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.*
5. Arjun :- You mean to say such experience is useful?
Krishna :- *Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. It gives the test first and the lessons later.*
6. Arjun :- Because of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading…
Krishna:- *If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the way.*
7. Arjun :- Does failure hurt more than moving in the right direction?
Krishna:- *Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.*
8. Arjun :- In tough times, how do you stay motivated?
Krishna :- *Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.*
9. Arjun :- What surprises you about people?
Krishna :- *When they suffer they ask, “why me?” When they prosper, they never ask “Why me?”*
10. Arjun :- How can I get the best out of life?
Krishna:- *Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.*
11. Arjun :- One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.
Krishna:- *There are no unanswered prayers. Keep the faith and drop the fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.*
Yesterday evening as I went out walking I couldnt help notice the stark reality that stares at us . In people around us!
Often find there are more grim faces out in the world with tension written all over in their body language.
A serious disposition, drooping shoulders downward or vacant gaze, clenched teeth or fist , tight jaw. People think twice before smiling or making eye contact.
Or on the other extreme… every one these days seems more connected to their mobiles than ever. And when they are asked to come back to reality there is a gap in awareness. People are overwhelmed by this divide that is happening all around us.
Life need not be overwhelming all the time. Perhaps a few personal perspectives need a shift.
Life and living
Life is easier when
You make friends with your past.
You realize you create happiness.
You stop your overthinking.
You realize time heals it all.
You live and let live.
Your avoid passing judgements.
You begin to start smiling more.
Would be happy to hear more of what makes life easier for you…Do feel free to share of what you think can make life easy!
