I read a saying somewhere that if a young bird falls from the nest, the whole jungle wakes up. Once I also saw a herd of elephants on National Geographic Channel that had their siblings with them, all grazing calmly but as soon as they felt a lion approaching and smelled the danger, they immediately moved all the small ones to the center and formed a protective circle around them… ... read more
What a beautiful name it is for our planet, Mother Earth. More I think of it, more I like it rather love it. I do not know who gave this name but whoever he or she was, was a very thoughtful and wise person. Perhaps there could not be a better name for it.
We depend on our Mother Earth for every need of our physical body, almost like… ... read more
Human being is very impatient by nature. He wants quick results for everything and while doing so, very frequently ignores the realities and the laws of nature. Rather than being patient, he strives to pursue the wrong line to achieve the results over-night and thus multiplies his anxiety. The questions is, “Can impatience speed up the results?”
Look at the trees. Do they grow and become tall and mature… ... read more
Generally, the term “terrorism” is associated with killing of other human beings, blasting the buildings or carrying out suicide bombing etc. – but my definition of terrorism is somewhat different. In my opinion, these are not the only forms of terrorism.
I consider every action that violates the legitimate rights of other human beings, snatching even a cent by force, bluffing, bribery and illegitimate gratifications, theft and robbery, hating… ... read more
Almost every one of us has traveled through fog one time or the other. Here is how it goes.
While we are on the road, we can see only limited portion of the road ahead. We cannot see as far as we can during clear weather but as we travel, we keep finding the way and keep traveling. For as long as we are traveling, we concentrate on driving… ... read more
Most of us worry about what others think of us and try to live up to the expectations of others particularly our boss, parents, spouse, friends and those who matter to us because nearly all of them expect us to act their way. By doing so, we fight a battle against our own selves that goes on and on but is it really required and possible to meet expectations of… ... read more
Every one of us has good and bad memories. How those memories affect us and should be treated has been abundantly explained by scholars in various ways under the famous Law of Attraction. One advice says "remember good things of the past and be proud of those", while another says "forget about the past and move ahead". Both are fine and interwoven.
Apparently all the three periods
Have you ever thought why the spectators buck up their players on the play field? It is because cheering up creates victorious feelings in the players. The lesson is that if a person is encouraged, his whole thought pattern changes. His talent and performance start shining leading him to victory not just on the play field but also in the race of life. He is sure to become a victorious… ... read more
When we learn to do something, it is only a beginning NOT an end or ultimate. It requires lot of work after learning the basics. For example, one does not become a great painter by just learning to hold the brush. So is the case with Reiki. Just the attunements do not make a person a good Reiki healer.
Attunements are the beginning, not an end in themselves. They… ... read more
Copying material from others’ websites without their permission is quite common all over the world. I have written on this topic earlier. There are lots of people who find it very easy to steal the work of others (with the help of webmasters) and try to show the world that they have written it themselves. This is highly immoral, intellectual dishonesty and is called theft in… ... read more
This is quite a common advice that many people give to others. It sounds very nice but is it always practicable for everyone? Practically, happiness may mean different to different persons depending on several factors.
Life is not the same for everyone. Nature has not distributed everything equally. Without getting in to the cause and logic of inequality, bitter fact is that hunger, poverty, sickness and above all the… ... read more
Bertrand Russell has mentioned the importance of solitude in Chapter 4 of his book "The Conquest of Happiness" and has mentioned few names of great thinkers who after working a lot in their life preferred to stay at home rather than socializing and that is when they became happier. He wrote this book in the beginning of last century, first published in 1930.
Anyone could differ with Bertrand Russell… ... read more
