Today, I am pleased to share the best knowledge and philosophy for life, from Bhagavad Gita by Lord Krishna. It is as follows: “The man who sees me in everything and everything within me will not be lost to me, nor will I ever be lost to him. He who is rooted in oneness realizes that I am in every being; wherever he goes, he remains in me. When he sees all being as equal in suffering or in joy because they are like himself, that man has grown perfect in yoga.”
Two roads may diverge in a yellow wood, and I - I will choose neither one. Instead I'll create my own road to follow my own convictions and dreams. After all, any road is only a road - unless and until you make something of it. Just like that Life is full of choices, and yet Life is also what you make of it. Every learning and every wisdom that I will gain in my journey, will leave the leaves trodden black. And that's what will make the difference.
We are here to add to the sum of human goodness. To prove the thing exists. And however futile each individual act of courage or generosity, self-sacrifice or grace-it still proves the thing exists. Each act adds to the fund. It needs replenishment. Not only because evil flourishes, and is, most indefensibly, defended. But because goodness is no longer a respectable aim in life. The hound of hell, envy, has driven it from the house.
We cannot put off living until we are ready. The most salient characteristic of life is its coerciveness it is always urgent, 'here and now,' without any possible postponement. Life is fired at us point-blank.
We hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable that all men are created equal and independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent and inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
We mustn't be afraid of change. Having said that, many people still are. They often feel very cmfortable in their comfort zone, and secure in the pond that are used to all their life. They never dare to venture out of the stagnant pond, and they never know the existance of ocean. And they are happy in theirignorance. Being comfotable with status quo is the very reason why many people don't have anything better in life. It's not the Karma, Kismet, Serendpity or Destiny. It's their own doing, and reaping exactly what they sow. Never be afraid of changes and challenges of life. It's for your good - almost always!
We often say"Forgive and Forget." That's the correct sequence IMHO. If you want to forget someone or some unpleasant event, you must first forgive. Forgiveness is the precursor to Forgetting. If you don't forgive, you'll never forget, and that someone or that unpleasant event will stay with you, carved inside your heart and deep in your mind. Like a magma chamber of a volcano, you will then embody the hot burning lava of hate and volcanic ashes of bad memories. So to move on with life, you ought to learn to forgive, first and foremost, even the worst people round you. The stream of life would then flow smoothly and seamlessly - onwards and upwards.
We should always think about and focus on the things that we can control, and not the things that are beyond our control. In my view, Life is like a game of cards, and the hand we are dealt is Determinism; while the way we will play it is Free Will. Let's aim to make it a good one!
What then is capital punishment but the most premeditated of murders, to which no criminal's deed, however calculated it may be, can be compared For there to be an equivalence, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal, who had warned his victim of the date at which he would inflict a horrible death on him, and who from that moment onward had confined him at his mercy for months. Such a monster is not encountered in private life.
What's the big deal if you're different? It's perfectly okay to be different, because at least you're genuine and not a shallow imitation. The truth is that you're yourself, and that's why you're different. Celebrate your differentness with joy. Always be yourself, and don't try to keep on changing, because eventually some you'll run out of new things to become. Be yourself, and don't waste time to be what 'they' like you to be; because you'll never win them all. Be yourself, because all others, especially the good ones, are already taken. Be yourself, and you'll be happy. Always Keep It Simple & Straightforward (KISS), and you'll enjoy life. Cheers!
Whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do it well whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself completely in great aims and in small I have always thoroughly been in earnest.
