I want to share with you a few pearls of wisdom.
Accept life. Work to change what you can and accept wholeheartedly what you can’t. When you accept, the energy which was being wasted into complaining starts working for the change. Acceptance allows you to be fully in the moment. Life is a great intelligence, so have faith and everything will work out in the end.
Be generous and kind. Life is a sojourn. We meet people, make friends and then disappear into the oblivion. Being kind makes this sojourn heavenly. Be kind to those who are kind; be kind to those who are not kind. Trust those who trust, also trust those who don’t trust. This way you will always be harmonious.
Ambitions Are Mirages!
Running after ambitions will never land you into Happiness. You might not realize this but you are running after happiness in one form or another. You have realized this many times before. I am just giving you a reminder. They are mirages.You see that you don’t really become happy when you get what you want. This is an endless cycle. Everybody is running in the same circle. Move out of the circle at once and see what I see!
Give Back and Be Grateful
Give back to others as much as you can. Your life is the result of hard work of countless people who have lived before and are living now. Give whatever you can, earnestly and you will feel better. Your heart will expand. Don’t boast about giving, be humble and patient. Helping others and expecting nothing in return is the way to harmony and serenity. A heart full of gratitude is a heart full of love.
Meditate and Pray
Make silence your best friend for a few minutes everyday. Look at your life, mind and soul. Who are you really? What are you running after? Why? Who am I? is the only question worth being answered. This question kills the questioner.
Pray with an open heart for your friends, family and the world at large. When you think about the welfare of others you get rid of self-doubt and paranoia. The life is a vast, gigantic unity and you are that. You are playing this game with yourself, temporarily, suffering in your dream. Whatever you give, you give to yourself. Therefore prayers, love and kindness which you give out is for your own good.
Truth has the power of one million suns. Truth shines forth sooner or later. Make truth your best friend. If you are truthful, your heart is pure and unjaded like a child. If you are truthful you need not remember what you spoke yesterday. Truth liberates you and you become truth.
Life is simple. Your needs are mostly easy to meet when you live in acceptance. It’s your wants which make life a constant uphill struggle for you. Desires, by their very definition can’t be satiated. Don’t follow the neighbors who are running after mirages in their sleep; follow the light. Desires are like wildfire which keeps increasing as it’s fed. Still, you can’t just give desires up, unless you observe their vicious nature and repetitive patterns which bind you. If you witness your thoughts, speech and action you soon get liberated of unnecessary and extra baggage.
I hope you will find these helpful in your walk of life. Do write me back and we can have a wonderful discussion about these or about anything you want.
Love and light,
