Be Courageous like Christ



Be Courageous like Christ


Maya Angelou has well said: “Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage you cannot practise any other virtue consistently.” Those, who have made history, have been people of great courage and conviction. Courage has nothing to do with physical strength. It is the will to fight fearlessly any wrong that is happening around you. Raising your voice against all sorts of injustices, anomalies and discriminations is courage. It is the strength to express one’s views fearlessly and to listen to other’s view-point patiently. Courageous are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
Generally, the world thinks that violent people are more courageous and powerful. But more courage and inner strength is needed to be non-violent. Forgiveness needs more courage than revenge. It is not easy to forgive one’s enemy. After the emergence of the new democratic South Africa, Nelson Mandela, who was imprisoned for twenty eight long years for opposing apartheid, appealed to fellow blacks to forgive the whites for the atrocities and brutalities they had committed while in power. Was it courage or cowardliness? It needs great spiritual strength to say like Jesus Christ, “O Lord! Forgive them for they know not what they are doing.”
Saying yes to the right thing and saying no to the wrong thing demand indomitable courage. Very few people support even the right thing if it is against their selfish interest. Similarly, saying no to the wrong thing is to expose oneself to the danger of displeasing the wrong doer. Hence, courage is the moral power to stand for the right and oppose the wrong.

Declutter: The Mantra of Diwali



Declutter: The Mantra of Diwali


We are in the habit of collecting useless and unnecessary things around us. In our houses, there are so many old, broken and dysfunctional things which have lost their utility and value. To welcome Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, we declutter during Diwali. We dispose off those unwanted articles to create more space. Clear space allows the vital energy to flow unhindered. Prosperity suffocates in a congested atmosphere. It needs openness and freedom to grow and flourish. So, there is a custom of cleaning the house and its surroundings. But this should not be a one-day habit. The concept of cleanliness should be cultivated right from the childhood so that it can become our second nature. Only then can we expect a continuous and perennial prosperity. Swachh Bharat Campaign is a welcome step in this direction to make our country clean and green once again. 
                      But much more important than physical clutter is our mental clutter. We are treating our mind like a garbage-pit. We have piled up negative emotions like vanity, anxiety, pessimism etc. in our mind. In this modern electronic world when we are constantly being bombarded by a lot of information, we have to be extremely careful and selective. Instead of running faster and faster on the materialistic treadmill, we must stop and introspect. We have to filter all the dirt and filth like an aquaguard. We have to disallow all types of negativity from entering our mind. Only pure thoughts of positivity should be permitted. If we allow negative thoughts and feelings to take roots in our mind, they will destroy our chances of success and rob us of our mental peace. A frequent dusting of the mental dirt will make us feel lighter and happier.
                                                                         After the cleaning operation is over, we decorate our houses with earthen lamps, candles or electric bulbs. Similarly, for mental illumination, we should brighten it with the neon lights of positivity. It is the only way to imbibe the spirit of this festival and celebrate it in its true sense.

Power of Patience



Power of Patience


In this vast world, there is no one who does not have a problem, big or small. There is no place where there is no problem except the grave. Problems are the proof of life. We have to learn the art of coping with the problems patiently. How poor we are without patience!
Patience is the strength of the soul. It is the courage to bear, tolerate and endure even in the worst circumstances. It is the parachute which can land us safely in case of air crash. It is the panacea to fight all adversities and hardships, calamities and misfortunes. “Patience is not about how long someone can wait. It is about how well he behaves while he waits.” Even big trees are uprooted in the wild wind. Grasses, which bow down and lie close to the ground, survive. Dark clouds do not hover over the sky forever. All lean patches pass. All sorry states and situations can be surmounted. Tough times don’t last. Tough people do. All that you need is infinite patience in your heart.
You cannot get a full grown baby before nine months. A certain period of gestation and incubation is needed for the embryo of an idea to grow and mature. People have the passion to start but not the patience to finish. To begin a thing is one thing. But to stay on and continue it till the end is another thing. Most of the failures in the world are the result of such half-hearted adventures. Those, who don’t quit and wait till the end, win the marathon race of life. Milton said: “They also serve who only stand and wait.” So, park your car in the parking zone of patience and wait for the right time to come.

Magic of Gratitude



 Magic of Gratitude

 Gratitude means being thankful to all those who help you. It is the sweetness of your personality which uplifts you. You owe a sense of gratefulness for all those who have given you something valuable in life. A prayer is also an act of thankfulness to God for all His bounties. You should be greatly obliged to your parents who have given you birth and brought you up with a lot of hardship and pain. You must be thankful to Nature which gives you all the essentials of life free of cost. You owe a deep sense of indebtedness to Mother Earth which sustains and supports you. You cannot repay the debt of the teacher who has showered the blessings of knowledge and wisdom on you. You must be grateful to your wife who is a constant source of care, comfort and companionship. Whosoever has provided you a little moment of joy and happiness in your life deserves your appreciation. It is well said “When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand where the winds of forgiveness can erase it. But when someone does good for us, we must engrave it on stone so that no wind can ever erase it.”
                                           If you have this attitude of thankfulness in your personality, you will befriend the whole world. A heart felt thank you with a warm smile is like an icing on the cake. It is magical in its effect and appeal. It is the sweetest and purest expression of your soul, the fairest and loveliest blossom of your heart and the choicest and finest fragrance of your existence.

Sorry, I Am Offline.


Sometimes Be Offline

Switching on the smart phone is the first thing that you do when you get up from your bed. Switching off the mobile phone is the last thing that you do before going to sleep. A sleek and sophisticated smart phone in your hand is a style statement. The access of internet is from bedroom to bathroom. People shop online even from their toilets. We entertain a large number of e-mails, chat notifications, comments and likes every day. The more they are there, the higher is your status. E-mails, facebook, apps, chat, video games have become addictions. Knowingly or unknowingly, we are slave to technology which is a good servant but a bad master.
Be always connected is the new mantra of the modern generation. People want to show off that they are busy. Replying e-mails, updating facebook, waiting for other’s reaction on your latest updates have become fashionable. We get irritated if an e-mail or a message does not come for some time. How many mails come to us daily, how many friends are there on the social media and how many likes or positive comments come on our post are matters of social status and professional prestige. We feel incomplete or imperfect without being on-line. We have become an inalienable and integral part of the virtual world.
Being always connected keeps your mind unnecessarily busy all the time. You lose your mental peace and emotional balance. Give rest to your mind. Let it relax. Multi-tasking also badly affects the quality of your work. You do not concentrate on one work at a time. You have created your own little world within this vast world. Relationship is seriously affected. You are so engaged in the virtual world that you have no time even for your family and kids.
                                                                                                                                                       Get rid of this bad habit which is as dangerous as drug-addiction. Sometimes be off-line. You can connect with yourself in a better way. Disconnect to reconnect.
