A precious Human life

Precious human life

“The lifetime of a human being is measured by decades, the lifetime of the Sun is a hundred million times longer. Compared to a star, we are like mayflies, fleeting ephemeral creatures who live out their lives in the course of a single day.”  Carl Sagan, Cosmos

Every day think as you wake up,to day I am fortunate to have woken up,

I am alive,I have a precious human life

I am not going to waste it

I am going to use all my energies to develop myself,to expand my heart out to others

To achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings

I am going to have kind thoughts towards the others

I am not going to get angry or think badly about others

I am going to benefit others as much as I can H.H.the XIV th Dalai Lama
How I wish,all of us have similar prayers every day !!

Thank you. Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Hearts 💓 of hope

Hope

Don’t let your hearts be overwhelmed by the adversity.May you have the strength,hope and courage to overcome the situation Lailah Gifty Akita

As the corona pandemic is sweeping the World with lock downs everywhere,along with news of increase in the number of deaths, creating a gloomy picture.

As the pandemic started showing it’s true colours by isolating millions of people around the world….social media movement has started to instill Love & Hope.

Have you decorated your home with Hearts symbols ?

Social media groups like Hearts in the windows,Hearts of Hopes & A World of Hearts are formed and encouraging people to decorate their homes / windows / entry passages / side walks,with cut out of Hearts symbol,which can bring happiness to those people who are isolated.Some are decorating their homes with Rainbow symbols.

Why Heart Symbol ?

The heart has long been recognized across cultures as being a symbol of Love, charity, joy and compassion.

I am talking about the Red Colored heart❤️ (which symbolizes the classic expression of Love) and not the other colored hearts.

Hearts of Hope

Spread the Love not the Germs

Any heroic tales ?

No doubt,these days are depressing yet one can come across any number of heroic tales.

People are becoming unsung heroes.

From the courageous medics ,scientists working hard to produce the vaccine,neighbors developing community spirits rather than being greedy and suspicious,Philanthropists,securit personels helping to transport essential commodities,people joining together to help the vulnerable society,old age homes,old people,teachers & gym instructors taking online courses….I can go on….

This kind of act by volunteers, giving us a ray of Hope.

We are all Grateful to these great souls.

Don’t be panicky & anxious!

There is hope on the horizon.Don’t let Corona Virus infect your mind !

And we hope soon the pandemic comes to an end and the cure is available at the earliest.

Hearts like wild flowers

“I hope you are blessed with a heart like a wildflower,strong enough to rise again after being trampled upon,tough enough to weather the worst of the summer storms,and able to grow and flourish even in the most broken places” Nikita Gill

OK. I have a question.

What is that first thing you want to do,when everything goes back to normal ?

Can you answer ? please share your thoughts.

Thank you. Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Lie & Life go together !

Half truth

I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. Al Pacino

Lies….lies….lies

Every body lies .Yes.This includes You & me. That is the truth.

Can you keep your Right hand on your heart and say you never lie ?

We lie even to ourselves !! Our world is full of liars!!

Art of lying starts right from when you are 5 yrs old.Parents to their children,children to their parents,Friend to another friend,Husband to wife vice versa,Lovers to each other,superior to subordinate and subordinate to superior.People lie to doctors,to lawyers,to relatives,you name it,at every stage one is lying to others depending on the circumstances.

The day is incomplete if you don’t lie !

And what about Surveys ,the Researchers undertake to know the pulse of the people?

Are they getting the truthful response ?

How about our dependence on Google for A to Z queries ? Are you getting the accurate reply?

Then why on the Earth you expect others to be Honest ??

Is this not the best example of ‘Double Standard’ ?

Nicholas Sparks says lie is a part of living.

“Because everybody lies, It’s part of living in society.

Don’t get me wrong-I think it’s necessary.

The last thing anyone wants is to live in a society where total honesty prevails.

Can you imagine the conversations?

You’re short and fat, one person might say, and the other might answer, I know.

But you smell bad, It just wouldn’t work. So people lie by omission all the time.

People will tell you most of the story…and I’ve learned that the part they neglect to tell you is often the most important part.

People hide the truth because they’re afraid.” -Jo Nicholas Sparks

Even the ‘sex’ is not spared !!

Everybody lies about sex. People lie during sex. If it weren’t for lies, there ’d be no sex. Jerry Seinfeld

Why everybody lies ?

Lying is not only a defense mechanism; it’s also a coping mechanism and a survival technique. Monica Raymund
Another reason given is..
“The truth is always a disappointment,which is why everybody lies”. Frederick Beigbeder

Lying vs Deception

Lying is a form of Deception…
Deception however does not always involve lying.
This is for another day’s discussion.
Please share your thoughts on this subject.
