Let me tell you a truth; I had a big ego problem, but I am happy that I am successfully able to overcome it. When I recall about my past mistakes I really feel shame about myself.
How silly I was; I think somehow what happens to me was much more needed in my life than I think it was; Bad things happen for good reasons.
Nobody is big, or nobody is small, sometimes our mind becomes small, and we ignore the fact that we are all alone and the same.
A short period of achievement, hard-luck or success turns into our ego, but I don’t blame anyone for that, I was there so I know what it feels, but by doing so we are not only killing our goodwill but also bring unhappiness.
Ego is our biggest barrier that kills our productivity and creates a fence in front of our mind and social connections. No one loves to talk with someone who thinks that he is bigger or better than others. Everybody knows something that we don’t know. It is the time that reveals that.
Becoming grounded is a hard-hitting task even when you are living in a state where everyone is busy with their life. Selfishness will come, no doubt about that. Who helped us that we will help others?
However, the reality and the truth are so far away. How can you claim yourself human if you don’t know how to live mindfully with others?
Your today’s so call success and achievement might be nowhere will stand tomorrow or your so call knowledge might turn into a false tomorrow. Can you predict that?
Believe in Contradiction
My first truth and belief depend on contradiction, where I feel less burdened and comfortable. You should have needed to practice that as well.
Let me tell you why? Contradiction means learning, Today you may believe that the sun has no life in it, but who knows, after hundred years from now someone will invent that.
It means your truth is not dependable. When I write, I love to contradict myself, when I spent a month without contradiction, I feel worried that I stopped learning. If I am on the right track, which means something is going to change that I was unaware of before, right?
Even the truth is not dependable so how could you depend on your money, knowledge, pride or ego. Everything is changeable; nothing remains same. Change, acceptance, and behavior (CAB) these three pillars of life continues.
Can you predict that the situation you are living with would be remaining same tomorrow; unfortunately not, even the death can come, and this world may not be your home anymore?
Changes are frequent; starting from a relationship to a job; everything. I think our problem is we don’t accept that; we live in a fantasy, where we imagine that we will live forever; we will never die.
Why not we do something that will remain with us, for which people will remember us. One sign of a good human being is how he treats others, those who less fortunate than him.
Have you ever noticed that how the Dalai Lama treats people, or how good you feel when you see Mahatma’s eyes because their soul is pure and it reflects through them?
When we talk with someone; at the very fast moment, we watch how he dressed up and how he walks and does he sound mind or not? Or he has a polite way to talk or not. Right?
But I always think if we create a fence in front of us; how we would understand others. Why do we fear fire? Because we experienced it and we know it burns us. Why do we hate living alone because we experienced it and now we know it kills us?
Have you ever given others a chance or you find yourself judging all the time? Barriers are always around us; they are like our enemies they want to behave against our soul’s will; why do we will allow that when we know we have not experienced it yet?
Accept every situation as it comes; however, in the long run, it doesn’t matter; if you don’t accept it, your soul will not accept you and it will leave you with your ego.
Would you love to live with it while you know the consequences, then I have no problem with it. Every person has his own way to live; you are free to live as well, but what about the footprints; don’t you love to leave your footprints or your legacy behind; don’t you love to walk in that path; where fewer people ride.
The crowd is like sand; it flows in that way where the wind comes; would you like to be the sand that flows with the wind? Or you would be the person that flows against the wind; where fewer people travel. Against the wind is always tough. You should never imagine this would be the path that will make you happy, no then this is not for you. Against is always tough, you need to fight with the wind and all the other sand as well. You need to fight with your own self, are you capable enough for that?
It depends on you; nobody can force you for that, you want to teach your son or daughter how to live a better life than the first step would be you. Without the concept or experience, how will you pass the message? It will come only with your way of living.
Change the way you see the world; change the way you live your life. May the heart beats for people’s sorrow; may the wish come from the heart to light the darkest places; may the desire come to feed the hungry people; may the ego die in the ocean of acceptance and love. May when people saw you they fall in love with you.
The Human’s character needs to be like a child. When a child, does something wrong, we don’t blame them because we don’t see anything wrong with them. We treat them as they know nothing, they have yet to discover the world, but when we treat an adult we see them as they know everything; we forget the truth that they lost themselves.
Why should we lose our peace for someone who shows us Ego? When we know that they are lost; they yet need to find the truth. Do you know the truth? If yes, then why do you lose coolness?
Discover the calling inside you and make that light visible from your words and living.
