Of what significance is one's one existence, one is basically unaware. What does a fish know about the water in which he swims all his life The bitter and the sweet come from outside.

Often I come across the public displays of charitable acts and donations on social media, which reminds me of the teaching from Holy Book: “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.“ In my view, it's an act of hypocracy to blow one's trumpet on FB or Twitter or like social media about one's charitable act, with ulterior motives of self-promotion and gaining praise from others. In my view, the true philanthropist, who is selfless at heart, does not let her/his left hand know what the right hand is doing - so that the noble act of giving remains absolutely secret. I really respect such selfless philanthropists. Long live the spirit of Charity that flows from a pure heart with Honesty and Integrity.

The open mindedness enables you to be a realist who is also an optimist at heart. Strange as it may seem, you hope for the best, and also expect the worst at the same time. You operate in the real world with best positive attitude, while understanding fully well what is practically possible in a given situation. This synergistic combination of realistic optimism ( or optimistic realism) can help you to deal with problems in an effective and positive manner, in my view, especially during the challenging phases in life.
