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.

I wandered like a child in strange places

To find out that distant solace of mine 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 »

Everyone is unique

03 Aug

We all live such busy lives that we don’t have time to think of ourselves. When you look into the mirror, do you think that ‘I am unique’?

If not, do it. Stand in front of a mirror. Look at yourself from top to bottom. Your head, forehead, eyes, nose….is there anyone just like you in this big world? Isn’t that amazing that there is only one person in this whole world just like you? Even identical twins will be different in many aspects.

If you look different from others, ask why you have to be like others? You can be different. Accept yourself as you are with your pluses and minuses. Love yourself.   If you don’t love yourself, nobody can love you or you cannot give much to others. Do you know why?

When you love yourself, you will be satisfied in who you are, what you have, and you will have time for others to seek the same.

In society we are all under pressure. We try to imitate or impress others by being someone else. Sometimes it kills us to not be the person who we truly are. But it is a part of life, society. There have been people who have lived as themselves in spite of societal pressures. They faced many challenges from society, but their perseverance to be themselves has made society better. Take any great thinker or artist. In their lives we can see that quest in them to be themselves in order to bring beauty to this world. They had to sacrifice a lot of things for that beautiful life. That may not be possible for us. But try your best each day. When we do that– when we try to be the real person in us– only then will we realize the beauty of this life.
