An optimistic sigh!

Standard

There is, really, no need to get nasty with fellow people. However, when I think that most of all people feel the need of food very badly and don’t get it for a few people, it really leaves a nasty taste in the mouth.
Poverty makes things too difficult for children to learn a few new things. It is. Although there is nothing new in this statement. Billions of words have been written, hundreds and thousands of doctoral thesis have been passed on this topic. Many will be written in the future; and, alas, billions of people still live in poverty.

Please Don’t Close the Doors

Standard

Don’t close the doors
Maybe someone saw possibilities which didn’t occur to her; the worst of all possibilities – death’s untimely visit. So it didn’t occur.
Maybe and may not be.
However, whether it occurs or not, possibilities remain endless, really endless; as death is a short night followed by endless day. And that is the reason, why you shouldn’t stop, shouldn’t allow the negative thinking pour into your heart.
When you stop at the doors set in the imaginary walls of possibilities, please try to open them; with empathy, with love, with utmost care. Being a good loser is always better than ending your life as a bad loser.

Are you jealous?

Standard

I have seen many persons of possessive and jealous passion.
It could be very simple, seemingly, of course. Some guys would get jealous if their wives talked to another man at a party. Some students, very young they are, are very jealous, they won’t tolerate a pinch of the success of another student.
These lists are endless.
I knew one lady, wife of my very close friend, she was so insanely jealous, she couldn’t stand the thought of her husband talking to another girl.
I had been jealous too, in the past, when I didn’t know that a person should reason with his or her all the negative emotions and ultimately come out with success.
The consuming fear, suspicion or this wrong belief fails to stem the tide of faith, happiness, and peace.
More negative emotions arise from jealousy of someone’s success. You cannot let it happen.
Reason with your jealousy, tell yourself, this won’t do any good. When jealousy involves possessiveness, it could have disastrous consequences for the loved object.
Don’t let negative emotions cause pleasure. Think about one thing – many people in this world don’t have happy marriage, memory, and childhood.
They see the joyful tide. Someday, you will cross the mountain.

Why reason is important

Standard

Can you please give me one good reason why I should be reasonable?
I can give you plenty of reasons.
One of them – I want peace. I think peace is the most basic ingredient we need in our life. And “reason” can only make a state peaceful, easy going.
Why?

Why is self control important

Standard

What is the main ingredient that can control everything in our life?
I have thought about it and I have considered many aspects at first; such as anger, such as desire, such as courage etc.
Suppose you have managed your anger or temperament; will that control other weaknesses?

No.

It doesn’t.

Who Am I?

Standard

Recently I asked one of my friends – have you ever thought about this question? Who am I?
The friend said, why, I am a human being. Did you expect something else?
I said, yes, I really did.
The friend shrugged his shoulders and made a gesture to me – the use of posture clearly indicated what he had thought about me – an insane!
Still, I stick around the same answer – yes, I did expect some other answers apart from the most common one – I am a human being.
Well, what would I say if I were asked the same question?

Why we are addicted

Standard

It really doesn’t take us very long to get addicted to something. It happens, especially when we don’t want to face the difficulties in our life.
The addiction could be drug, sex, exercise and, yes, work!
A very close friend of mine had retired two years ago. As you know, sixty is a number now; moreover, he was workaholic; so he somehow managed the first year without ‘working’. It had been painful and so that he started a studio with a much younger boy who gave him the required space. It was mutually agreed that the boy couldn’t give any time for the studio; it was because the boy had already been into a job for some time and he had to continue that job to run his family. So my friend took the entire responsibility to run the studio alone.
