Inside of us (IM 785)

We search happiness in outer world. We seek respect from others. We are hungry for praise and pride. We always look at the outer world for everything we do. But in most cases it doesn’t work. It is because most of the content we are looking for are present within us not in other people…

Tolerant and strictness (IM 781)

There is a old saying that goes- “one should be tolerant with others and strict to themselves.” But we see the other way around most of the time. Being tolerant with others requires empathy, patience and temperance and being strict with ownself means being self-disciplined and staying in accord with the principles. PS: Happy Thanksgiving…

The meaning of life (IM 751)

What is the meaning of life? This is one of the vague and the most difficult question to be asked. The meaning of life differs from person to person, day to day, hours to hours and situation to situation. Therefore, what matters the most is not the general meaning of life but rather specific meaning…

Popular vs Good (IM 749)

They are different… What is popular might not be good and what is good might not be popular. We need to pick one because picking both will result in failure and cost us our time. We need to chose right option and we can’t have both because when we choose one we will ultimately loose…
