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 »

Expressing our feelings:

13 Aug

We all are human beings, and each of us has so many hard situations to face in everyday life. Expressing feelings is important for all human beings in most situations. If we don’t do it, it is like holding gushing water from a dam. Ignoring to express feelings is not good for our body and mind.  Now or later, it should go…we have to learn to let it go. When we express ourselves, then only we can live this life as who we are. It is important to know how we should express our feelings effectively. Read the rest of this entry »

Small things in Life

01 Feb

This story is from a forward email. It is supposed to be from Lisa Beamer. It shows the importance of small things in our life.

******************************************************

I had a very special teacher in high school many years ago whose husband died suddenly of a heart attack. About a week after his death, she shared some of her insight with a classroom of students.  As the late afternoon sunlight came streaming in through the classroom windows and the class was nearly over, she moved a few things aside on the edge of her desk and sat down there.

Is everyone equal?

22 Jun

Everyone is equal? Why people think they are higher or lower than others? Is rich better than poor? Is white better than black? Are men better than woman? Is there better race, nationality, religion or age? It seems endless.

Sometimes we feel like we are less than someone else in terms of money, position, family and talents etc. Sometimes we get treatment from others like we are lesser than the other. We get discouraged or hurt by these kinds of experiences. But is it true that we all are equal? Read the rest of this entry »

Festivals- Christmas and Hanukkah are passing…. or just happy holidays?

09 Dec

Religions are paths to God-the Supreme Being- the goodness. God- without shape and form…a hard concept to understand. Primitive man worshiped him in the form of nature. Then in different places, different religions formed to understand God. So Hinduism, Muslim, Jews, Christianity, Buddhism….everything leads to God to promote goodness in human hearts.

Each religious festival has a meaning regardless of the religion, story or myth behind it. Read the rest of this entry »

Goodness and God:

05 Nov

(My usage here is- without quotes God is the actual word; with quotes ‘God’ is the term when it is used differently)

Whenever people talk about God, it seems like an untouchable subject. Some see it as political, advice, religious or crazy. There is even a saying – not to talk about ‘God, age and politics’ between friends and family.

‘God’ is used everywhere, necessarily and unnecessarily in politics, religion, selfishness, curse, and blessing…etc.

When we think about God – our picture in mind is what we believe or hear about ‘God’. Just like when we hear about ‘Christmas’ some think of festival, Santa, gifts, tree, lights, sacrifice, gift of life…as per the individual’s perception, understanding and experience.

Can we change that image about God? Read the rest of this entry »

Paying back!

14 Oct

I know one of my friend who looks after her old mother who has Alzheimer’s. It is very hard for her, but she tries her best. Some people tell to put mother in a nursing home…but for her if she cannot do her best, she won’t feel good about herself. My friend may do it if she cannot handle in any way. But now, she has the resources to do it. She is telling, it is time to pay back for what her mother did. When she had to get up at night, she remembers how her mother had to do that for her!

When I look back in my life, I feel like kids always take it granted that parents do lot of stuff for them. When I became a mother I realized how much I have to thank my mother. When I had my baby with me, it was like I will do anything in this world to protect her. I remembered the incidents my mother was on my side to support, protect and encourage. Then I realized how fortunate I am to have her…I understood the value of having her.

Sometimes we don’t realize how fortunate we are to have mothers. Like everything, we don’t realize the value of something when we have it. I know a woman who said- she is grateful that sometimes her son visits. Sons and daughters, think about your kids…when they grow up, how you want them to be? Be like that to your parents! If you get a chance to pay back, don’t hesitate-go with your heart!
