It has been a long time since I wrote something about life. Recently I read a story which provoked me to write this article. The story goes like this.
Once a very rich man from America visited a Saint in India, He entered the small abode of this famous saint and saw that there was no furniture in his house. The saint invited him and gave him water to drink.
A bit uncomfortable as he was trying not to offend this great saint he asked,
“You are a great man but where is your furniture?”
The saint replied
“Where is yours?”
The Rich man said “Well I am just a visitor to this place”
The saint replied “Aren’t we all.”
If we look and think deeper about this story, we may understand a beautiful concept about life. After our birth, we live in this world amidst various people showing love, care, affection, hatred to us. We fight so much with fellow human beings for justifying our rights. Everywhere we see feuds for money, power and many more. Terrorism is on the heights and these people (Terrorists) needs to see blood everywhere. Why don't we understand the true concept of life. Mostly clashes and problems arise in a family (mostly joint families) because of the money. Money may/can change the mentality of the spectator and has the power to change his perspective on life. After our death, are we going to take this money for which we fight so much? The answer is a big NO. The only thing which is going to accompany us, after our death is our Karma. Earn good relationships with every fellow human being, that's a great asset, because you can't satisfy many. Once my mom told me, "In life, Its not the number of persons who is with you when you live in this world. Its only the number of people who misses you even after you die and silently shreds a tear in your memory". I never understood the real meaning until I faced a big loss in my life. It changed my perspective. Live your life happily. Achieve something when you live. Always remember, two things in life:
- We have only one life
- We don't bring anything to this world and we don't take anything with us after death
Take a deep breath, relax yourself. Ease all the pressures off your shoulders and approach the life with a big smile on your face and life will treat you in a best way. Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
Let your dreams come true.
