Standing up for what is right:

26 Nov

Standing up for what is right is not an easy task to do. It needs great strength and courage. Sometimes it can be happen only with great support from someone who is as strong as the other person. Most of the times it can cause materialistic loss like money, position, etc. And, sometimes they will be even looked as if they are fools in this practical world. People wonder do they ever gain anything by ‘Standing up for what is right’?

Most of the time when people stand up for what is right, they don’t gain anything for themselves. They gain for others. It is a selfless act. It can take away their peace of mind too. Then why do they do it?

When we stand up for what is right, we gain something for others in society. It makes you strong in who you are. Most of the time, people don’t express who they are because of various reasons. Then we are suppressing the real person in us. If we suppress that real person all the time, one day he/she is going to explode which can make things worse. Suppressing our self is like dying each time. ‘Standing up for what is right’ is a basic human right for each person. When people deny that for various reasons, they treat others as slaves or act selfish.

Popular people or public figure will be afraid to talk about their true feelings. When American President Obama talked about his feelings about being a black, I really felt respect towards him as a person. He just stood up for what he felt right to say or act.

When I say ‘Standing up for what is right’, I think it is important to add “in your heart” too. Because what I felt right may not be the same for others. It will help others to understand better, if they have an ear to listen.

When you ‘Stand up for what is right’, you are living as the real ‘YOU’. It is living life in all its fullness.

How can we feel successful?

09 Apr

Success is defined different in different countries and cultures. Most of the time it is money and power. Recently when I heard about a cancer survivor(Lance Armstrong) who cheated all the people who looked upon him for inspiration, I felt really sad. Is money and power is the ‘success’? If success should make a person happy, all those ‘successful’ people are happy in their life?  Did you ever wonder why people are never satisfied with their bank savings? Are millionaires the most successful people? Money is never enough for most millionaires also. Read the rest of this entry »

Forgiveness is the essence of love:

19 Apr

Forgiveness is the essence of love, because love doesn’t exist where there is no forgiveness. Without forgiveness, love is dead.

Most of the time, forgiveness is looked as if it is a kind of weakness. But actually, a person needs lot of strength to forgive someone. It is brave to forgive someone wronged us. It requires lot of self esteem to do that. In a way it is sacrifice. It is kind of putting away our ‘self’ and ego. But ultimately, the winner is the one who forgives.
