We Are Responsible For Our Life Experiences

We Are Responsible For Our Life Experiences

I had a conversation on the phone with an old friend a while ago. While talking he touched on the topic of palm leaf readings by the Indian Rishis (sage), a script written on a kind of palm leaf and used to read and tell the past life of any one who wants to get the reading.

In the conversation he were telling me about how important it is for one to find out about their own past life and do whatever they can to solve the past life karma to make this life better and according to him, if we can do that palm leaf reading, we can solve it. He is very convinced we can change our destiny through it.

You Can Make A Difference

You Can Make A Difference

We are a miracle of God. We have within us the creativity to make a difference in the community we are living. Whatever other’s are doing for commercial purpose is their business, but you and me, can bring change positively to the life around us. It’s not about what others are doing but it’s about what we are doing to influence positively the life around us.

Do you know a drop of water if gathered enough can become an ocean? Likewise, if every one of us in this world decide and take the responsibility to bring change in the community we are living, this world will definitely be a better place to live in. There will be so much of goodness done to those who needs it much.

There is a Buddhist temple which conducts a special activity every now and then. What they do in the activity is, they buy as many live fish as they can and release them back into the river. Does that bring any difference? Maybe you think no, but they do safe a fish from becoming the victim of human desire to eat flesh and for me and that’s a kind act. To the fish of course, but that’s life too. What are they showing to us? That all life matters.

We definitely won’t get a Nobel Prize from the Nobel Foundation for our small but silent service but we do and will get a “noble prize” in many different ways. We get satisfaction from doing something good to the life as a whole. Even if the act is as simple as giving a smile to someone, it is still a noble act. Nobody is born great but you get bestowed with greatness through the deeds you do. That’s is a great ‘Nobel Prize’ if you ask me.

You have to be a great person to make that change like Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela or Martin Luther King. They were not born great. They were just like you and me but they took responsibility to bring about change in the community they were living. If you realize the value of helping, you will make that move and help out to make your community a better place.

Why helping is important? Think about it, you see people begging in the street and you walk by ignoring them. What if someday, suddenly what you have is taken away? Do you think they will be in such condition if they are capable? Sometimes, we see this blind people coming to us and asking for donation, do you think if they have capacity to see like you do, they will even ask? Helping is about being thankful for what we have.

I have seen some people ignoring these people saying, “oh.. its their karma, why must I care” or “it’s just their bad luck”, but what they don’t realize is that they were given a chance to something good. If not for such people, do you think you can even get that chance to do good deeds? That doesn’t mean we let them be in such a way because that’s the purpose they are there. What I mean is we are living in a dynamic world where we all need each other to grow, both materially and spiritually.

You, yes you who is reading this now, do you think you can bring change and make a difference in your life and the community you are living in? Do you believe that all it takes is for you to begin first not expecting others to start? If I thought the same way that someone else have to do it, this blog would not exist. Yet, you know what, Henry Ford once said, “If you think you can or you think you cannot, either way, you are right”, because that’s what you believe in. You can always change your belief and believe otherwise.

Make that change and bring the difference in someone’s life today. Even if is a small act of kindness such as smiling or being friendly, it does matters. You do have an impact on other people’s life. It’s never too late to start doing anything.

What Are You Contributing To Life

What Are You Contributing To Life

Everyday, in so many ways, we can see people getting irritated, angry or sulking over small little things in life that upsets them be it in family, workplace or simply while hanging out among friends. This is often more true when one is rushing for something and suddenly something goes wrong, specially in at workplace.

I often wonder why it is so easy for people to react in anger easily compared to reacting with love and patience. Habit? Perhaps it is. On the other hand, perhaps it is because one is not have a positive outlook. There are many things happening around us we need to become aware, and there are more things to do in life that anger should not matter.

Positive Mental Attitude

Positive Mental Attitude

There is really very little difference among people. If you look at the rich and successful people, and if you believe you can’t have similar success, you are thinking negatively. This is the little difference between the successful and those who are not. The successful people think positively. They have positive outlook in life. They are optimist not pessimist.

You too can be successful and create a happy life the way you want. You begin by adopting similar positive mental attitudes and outlook in life.

Mistakes Equals Wrong Point Of Views

Mistakes Equals Wrong Point Of Views

A wrong is a wrong. There is no two ways about it. If you know something or anything that you are doing will slow down your or others progress in life, why would you want to do it? Why do people do all the wrong things anyway even though they know it is wrong? Maybe because they think they can get away with it or maybe because they are not having the correct viewpoints.

If you think you can get away with whatever mistakes you’ve done, you are wrong. We can’t get away because whatever we do belongs to us. Can you say your actions are not your actions? What goes around comes around. It’s the law of cause and effect – as you sow so shall you reap. What you give you get back. If you have injured the heart of someone, you will get back the exact experience.

Maybe you won’t face the exact situation, but there will be a situation which will show you the mental torments and emotional toils you caused others through your deeds. Until we learn to function the way we are suppose to function in life, we will go round and round again through many cycles of life until the lesson is learned. Each thoughts, words and actions must be carefully selected in order to not to create unwanted reactions.

Good Advice

Good Advice

Advice are often considered as personal point of views offering some type of suggestions about certain situations given out to someone. An advice can come from someone ordinary like your neighbor, friends or relatives as well as, it can also come from qualified professionals.

People who give advice, usually give them as a guide to action or conduct about something. It can be a simple advice like how to polish your fingernails or can be a complete professional advice like getting legal suggestions on how to start up your own business. There are various types of advice. It can be a business advice, a dream advice, a spiritual advice, make up advice or even health advice.

However, each of these advice can only fit into two major category. They either have to be a good advice or bad advice. A good advice always builds you towards improving either yourself or something that you want to improve or learn up. Bad advice on the other hand, although may appear as if it is a good advice, will always get you into trouble because they are wrong advice.

Find Your Talent

Find Your Talent

There is a story about a Jewish couple in England sometime ago who set their heart on having a son. When a son was born to them, they insisted that he should be a genius. His records in school however, dismayed his parents who had to employ a number of tutors to help the boy scrape through his examinations from one class to the next.

After completing school with the greatest of difficulty, the boy was sent to Oxford, where he did not fare any better. In order to avoid discrimination, the family changed their name from a typically Jewish one to Abercrombie.

One day, Mr. and Mrs. Abercrombie went to Wembley Station in London to see a football match between England and Scotland. Their son was playing for England and the stadium was a sea of heads. Suddenly, the game progressed, the spectators were so excited that they stood up and shouted in unison, “Abercrombie got the ball, Abercrombie got the ball, Abercrombie is a genius”.

Purpose Of Life

Purpose Of Life

It is staggering, but the fact is not many among us understand this; that the purpose of life experiences is to awaken us to our true identity – soul and until the day you realize and ‘discover yourself as soul’, live and function consciously from that state, your learning experiences in this world will not end.

One might ask why it has to be like this at all; why we have to be put into such tasks of learning something in this world.

If I say, you were not put here by someone or something else but you have chosen to be here by your own free will, can it satisfy your mind? Can you have peace of mind? No amount of answer can satisfy our thirst of an answer until we experience first hand and realize the truth about how we were before and how we came down to this lower world.

What Determines Our Life Circumstances

What Determines Our Life Circumstances

In my previous article on finding opportunity, I asked if we create opportunities or wait for opportunities. In this article we will take a look at the phrase ‘to create’ and the postulates we carry in our mind and how they affect our life.

What does to create means? It means doing the activity of creating or being in creative activity. Do you know that we are constantly participating in the process of creating something?

When you are working in the office, for example, even though the work you are doing might be for your boss, your boss is actually creating something he wants through you. Creations are taking place everywhere.

What Is An Opportunity?

What Is An Opportunity?

What do you think of opportunity? I know it can mean different thing for different people, but what does it means personally to you? Do we create opportunity or do we wait for the opportunity to come to us? Some say we should create opportunities, while some others say we should wait.

In the case of creating opportunity, we have to have the right resources or a least enough of it; if not how can we create the opportunity? Resources in this context can be money or knowledge. On the other hand, if we wait for the opportunity, how certain can we be that it will arrive? It isn’t easy to predict if we don’t know the way. Waiting is like gambling and that is not a wise way of getting or achieving something.
