Keep Your Word
May 10, 2019

Recently my laptop needed repairs and when I went to pick it up I found that I was about six dollars short of the required payment. When I told the repairman that he would have the money by evening time, he got a look of disbelief in his eyes and asked with suspicion, “Promise?” Taken aback, I said, ‘of course.’ Later I sent someone with the money, and the repairman was shocked. He said that no ...

Change Your Life
May 3, 2019

Are you feeling that life is a dead end street? Do you have a nagging thought that something has to change? If so, do something about it. Go ahead and change your life. Don't be afraid. As a child you were fearless. When learning how to walk you took a wobbly first step and fell down. You cried, but did not give up. You got up and took another uncertain step only to falter and fall all over again....

Never Give Up
April 26, 2019

Sometimes it's easier to give up rather than keep trying to get an 'A' in Math, or fix your marriage, or learn how to ride a bike, or get along with your spouse, or get through to your children. Of course there are times when plain old common sense will tell you that it's time to quit that job, or that project, or that friendship. But for the other times we can all learn from those who did not giv...

Be A Vegetarian
April 19, 2019

As children we eat what our parents feed us, but when we become intelligent enough to decide for ourselves, we do well to choose a vegetarian diet over a non-vegetarian one. There are many excellent reasons not to eat meat, some of which are mentioned below....

Observing people, we tend to make up our mind about them very quickly. Let us say that you see someone at a party eating before everyone else. Your initial reaction will likely be, “How greedy!” You have no way of knowing that he is severely diabetic and needs to eat at that time. When you see someone talking a lot, resist the temptation to dismiss her as a talkative woman. You have no way of k...

We are accustomed to being somewhere else rather than being in the here and now. While eating our meal we watch T.V. Consequently, we don't appreciate what we are eating or realize how much we are eating. While talking on the phone we take the opportunity to check our email, or read the newspaper. Afterwards, we cannot remember the conversation we had for ten minutes. In a meeting, many perfect th...

Thousands of people are donating 20 minutes of their time today and making the city of Toronto a cleaner place. Citizens are picking up litter around their workplace, school, park or neighborhood. The campaign is called the ‘twenty minute makeover.’ I think the idea is so good that it should not be restricted to cleaning a city; it should extend to a ‘twenty minute makeover’ for the body and the m...

Be Genuine
March 22, 2019

Though we are not all-knowing, yet it’s not very difficult to spot a fake smile, a half-hearted handshake, or a false compliment. Of course we cannot be 100% genuine, but being true to yourself is the right thing to do, and it is the easy thing to do. There is no problem in being yourself, but there is a great deal of effort involved in being something you are not....

Use Words to Inspire
March 15, 2019

Words are a very powerful tool. They can inspire or discourage. They can make the listener smile or frown. Words can unite nations or push them to war. You can use words to inspire someone to live or to put an end to his life. So, choose your words carefully....

Be a Doer
March 8, 2019

There are two types of people: they who only complain, and they who take action. These two types exist in every work place, group, school, friend circle and organization. The complainer whines loudly, "This place is filthy," while the doer quietly grabs a broom and sweeps the place clean. The complainer says, "Kids today are just hopeless," while the doer volunteers time and services as a youth co...

Your True Valentine
February 8, 2019

Valentine's Day is coming up on the 14th. Little children will soon be making cards to give their teachers and fellow students. Greeting card makers are doing brisk business, as are candy stores, florists and jewellery shops. As with every other celebration, religious and secular, Valentines' Day has become extremely shallow and commercial. So, let's make this day truly significant by focusing the...

No Fear, Just Love
February 1, 2019

The greatest relationship each one of us has is with God. The essence of each individual is the soul, and all our relationships are only with the Soul of all souls, the Supreme Soul. Worldly relationships are temporary; our spiritual relationship with God is eternal. He was, He is, and He will always be our one and only. ...

Understand Attachment
January 20, 2019

We do not desire only that which is good, or fragrant, or beautiful. Our likes and dislikes and our tastes and distastes are dictated by our attachments. Alcohol smells great to a drinker, but not to a teetotaler. A mother often puts her mouth on her child’s mouth. An onlooker is disgusted. To him the child smells bad, but the child’s mother disagrees completely. Her attachment to the child transf...
