Conquer Pride
April 13, 2018

Saintly souls say, "Keep critics nearby so that your pride may not increase." Truth is that we prefer to keep company of those who give us praise, false as it may be. Words of praise put a smile on our face. Criticism makes us frown. Pride makes us want to look good in the eyes of others. So we work more diligently on looking good than actually becoming good. ...

We read books, magazines and newspapers. We watch television. We use the Internet. We observe people to see how they dress, how they walk, how they talk, how they interact, and much more. The bottom line is that we like to learn. ...

Advice for Aspirants
March 16, 2018

A disciple asked his Guru, "Revered Master! Why have I not attained God yet? Why does my mind not take delight in thinking of God?" The Guru replied, "You say that you have a desire for God, but these are mere words. Anyhow, if you are serious, then listen carefully. Your problem is that you are not humble. You hide your own faults and dwell on the faults of others. The cure for your disease is to...

Everyone worries about something or another in life. The rule of thumb is this: The more you have in the way of family and material objects, the more you tend to worry. You cannot avoid problems in life; they are inevitable. However, you can deal with them effectively so that they do not overwhelm you....

Be A Hard Worker
March 2, 2018

We all know or hear about successful children, men and women in our neighborhood, community and the world. Seeing their success we think, "How lucky this person is!" Instead, we should be thinking, "How diligently she must have worked to get where she is today!" I read somewhere, "The harder I work, the luckier I get." We secretly desire the success of others but lack the desire to work hard. If s...

Reduce the distractions
February 23, 2018

When exam time approaches, parents go out of their way to create an environment where there are fewer distractions for their children. They may not watch TV even though their favorite show is on. They may delay having friends over, or rearrange their social engagements. In this way, they facilitate an environment in which their children can stay focused and concentrate on their goals. Children als...

It is only a mirage
February 9, 2018

A thirsty animal crossing the desert detects water in the distance and excitedly rushes towards it only to find out that it was a mirage. We too rush towards the mall, movie, casino, party and the restaurant for happiness. In the end we find that it was only a mirage and that we have received only temporary pleasures. After some time we are back to square one, searching for happiness all over agai...

Exercise your rights
February 2, 2018

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you. Not necessarily in the court of law, but by people. These people are your family - husband, wife, parents, siblings and in-laws. These people are your friends and neighbors. Most of the scuffles that take place in life are due to the verbal exchanges between you and them. You certainly cannot force the other pe...

Choose friends wisely
January 26, 2018

The word 'friend' makes us smile and brings about emotional satisfaction. Everyone needs a friend to talk to and share feelings with. Friends hold your hand in difficulties and rejoice with you in good times. A true friend will pick you up when you are down, and jump with you when sky is the limit....

Accept your own faults
January 19, 2018

We tend to blame others for our problems. It may be the spouse, children, boss, employee, in-laws, parents, weather, etc. We rarely acknowledge that the jam we are in could be due to our shortcoming or actions. On a very rare occasion when we may believe something to be our fault, we do not have the courage to acknowledge our fault in front of others for fear of appearing weak. ...

Be Genuine
January 12, 2018

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. ...

Be prepared for change
January 5, 2018

There is a time for everything: a time to take birth, a time to die; a time to work, a time to play; a time for youth, a time for old age; a time for laughter, a time for tears. Nothing stays the same. Climate changes; body changes; fashion changes; financial situation changes; dress size changes; the way of thinking changes. Change is a part of life....
