New Beginning and a ending
There were some questions asked by people about pranik healing and reikhi healing. He asked “which healing works? People have confusion about which one to follow”
Well, I say, every healing works Irrespective of the method or process followed. It is just like exercise, ultimate expectation is to get good health. Because human life is always what one makes of it. As Sanskrit slogan says “Yad bhavam tad bhavati”
We spoke about different ways of celebrating birthdays last week. Hope you got an opportunity as well to utilize and make someone’s day happier.
Let me add some more ways of making birthdays even more worthy. You know, sometimes we recall a name that is impossible to forget. Some examples like – a friend helped you in tough time, a teacher guided you in a right way, your relative who consoled you in a sad situation or be it anyone for that matter who made you what you are today. You won’t forget that name till your last breath, isn’t it?
That someone, who will always remain in your heart because of his/her selfless care and love for you. I’m sure you would have a name in your heart by now.
Now, let me ask you some questions. How many lives can you touch in a year? How many people are you supporting like the way you received? Do your parents feel proud of having you as a son/daughter? Can you make your teacher proud of being your teacher? If you are proud of working in a big organization, can you make that organization’s management proud of having you as an employee? These are some of the opportunities of adding value to your life year on year. If you haven’t started yet, you still have time till your birthday.
Now, I read a famous author’s writing in kannada “Manku Timmana Kagga” written by D.V.G. in one of the famous poem, he says
ಹುಲ್ಲಾಗು ಬೆಟ್ಟದಡಿ, ಮನೆಗೆ ಮಲ್ಲಿಗೆಯಾಗು
ಕಲ್ಲಾಗು ಕಷ್ಟಗಳ ಮಳೆಯ ವಿಧಿ ಸುರಿಯೇ
ಬೆಲ್ಲ ಸಕ್ಕರೆಯಾಗು ದೀನ ದುರ್ಬಲರಿಗೆ
Translation for those who don’t know Kannada
Be a (gentle) blade of grass at the foot of mountain and jasmine flower at home,
Be (strong) as a rock when fate pours (torrential) rains of difficulties on you,
Be sweet like sugar and jaggery to the poor and weak,
Be one among all, Mankuthimma
This has a lot of meaning and adds wonderful value to human life if adopted and followed. We all can live like this, can’t we?
This is a special time for Hindus as it is a new beginning of the new year. It is an auspicious festival (Yugadi – a new beginning or start of the new era). Let’s discover interesting factors about beginning and ending.
How do you start or end anything makes a big difference. Because human mind remembers only the beginning and the ending of everything, take an example of anything for that matter. If you go to a movie, you will only remember the beginning or ending situations of the movie. If you go to any conference, it will be the same.
Like this, you may find many examples, let’s say you fight with your spouse and the funny thing is, only the reason to begin or the last word will be remembered (which could be dangerous as well if you are a husband). If you want to correct your employee’s attitude or motivate him/her, it’s very important that you begin and end the conversation on a positive note and make them feel happy and in between, you can certainly give feedback.
Can you influence people by asking positive questions because people answer for what you ask, can you add value to lives with your presence in their lives?
My daughter shared a quote that was written at her school “Don’t cry, it’s over. Feel Happy, It happened” If you have gone through difficult year or a difficult phase of life, remember these words and mark a new beginning to this new year starting from this YUGADI, Wish you all the best.
