Truth is not always beautiful, nor are beautiful words always true. But we often utter beautiful words to make others happy, and not be rude.
Also, there are some people who do not wish to utter beautiful words ever, but always wish to hear beautiful words said to them.

As long as one has tolerance towards other people's opinions and practices, no matter how different it might be from his, this person can put up with anyone at any situation, very easily.

My Say... # 249

A stampede in a religious place alone is enough to convey that a blind faith in following religion can lead to the end of one's life.
 I believe there is no restriction on how one should worship God. They do not have to go to a place that gets equally unholy with the crowd, as holy it is considered.

Some people tend to be dissatisfied with their life because they just don't see how content they can be with what they have. Instead they are constantly yearning for what they don't have (or rather, what their neighbors have).

My Say... # 234

Proud people (the ones who brag about themselves with no great achievement) are like fools, who think they are the best.
Modest people ( the ones who accept they are good, but never show off) are like the intelligent people, who believe they still need to learn more to become the best.

Irony of human life: parents work hard most of their life to give their children a better life. Once the children become adults and their parents grow old, they are so busy with their life, that they neglect their old parents from being a part of their life.

Creativity is allowing oneself to make mistakes. Art is to learn from the mistakes and do it right the next time.

Take something positive from everything that happens to you. If a glass bottle of cough syrup breaks, don't cry over the broken bottle and wasted medicine. Its actually a good omen. No one is going to catch a cold and cough in the house.

When you are worthy of praise and you don't get even one, that's when you should show narcissism for a while.

My Say... # 209

As we grow, we learn, experience, achieve various things in life. We lose our innocence and grow more egoistic. With ego, we constantly keep comparing ourself with others - criticize them if they aren't any better. Envy them if they are better than us. We hurt everyone around us in some way or the other. And without ego, we are all as innocent as a child who can even heal a wounded soul.

My Say... # 208

Praise inflates one's ego

My Say... # 207

One should never fall short of praising their own children, as it motivates them, boosts the confidence and make the kid more inclined to tackle challenges. But praise when it is genuinely necessary, because too much of praise can actually undermine the child's motivation.

Birds are one ideal example that teaches us on how to  bring up a child. They build their nest, lay the eggs, once the Lil ones are out, they nurture them, feed them. Then they teach them how to fly and how to find the food. And finally leave them to create their own Lil world.

My Say... # 195

Some people I know of, in life, are of such kind, who would first listen to one's talks; If the person is happy with their life, these people would show signs of jealousy; if the person is disappointed in their life, they would show signs of avoidance; if the person asks them about their life, they would call the person inquisitive; If the person doesn't ask questions, they would assume something is wrong with this person.

Sentiments makes sense to me when I have them with people, not with all the materialistic things I own.

My Say... # 193

One should remember, as our experiences and situations keep changing, so does our thinking, our beliefs and ideologies. And this can very easily allow a person to avoid, or ignore or just stop being in touch with people whom he/she enjoyed company with some years back. Just because of the lack of connection with the others.

Some of us being extroverts, spend so much time with others, socializing. We don't even spend half that time to explore and strengthen ourselves.

My Say... # 187

If you want someone to stop expecting from you. Stop giving them your time for a while.

My Say... # 186

It is impossible to see everyone  around you happy with whatever you want to do in life. Either be successful in convincing every one around you, or just do what you feel is right for you. People at some point are just going to get used to it.

Nobody in this world should be given the privilege to alter your mental well being.

My Say... #183

An Atheist is able to balance his/her mind, with an equal amount of logic and emotions, when compared to a religiously pious person..

..And I find, some of the 'known-to-be-genuine-till-date' spiritual leaders are Atheist themselves.

Don't judge people by their beliefs.

My Say... # 180

Even though I say it's 'my say' , these quotes are often times from what I have understood of the different talk shows, books and articles, or even conversations, I engage in. I write them here for my own benefit, and also encourage others comments on them for my further exploration and understanding of whatever is been said. And also, each of us are being influenced by various other factors and constantly keep changing our thinking. It feels always good to go back to these 'my says' and see how my thinking and beliefs have changed overtime.

My Say... #179

It is really easy to make oneself happy. But very difficult to remain so. Unless one never alters his/her state of mind by any external entity, tangible or intangible.

My Say... # 178

Each one of us come across atleast two or three people who play mind games with us in such a mysterious way that we get stuck in it for decades. And we start believing it to be the reality. The mind is ours and the game is theirs.

My Say... #177

It takes a lot of attempts to learn to say NO without any explanation. But a very useful skill to avoid unnecessary tension.

My Say...#176

The country is not by itself a backward place. It is it's people's thoughts, talks and actions that make it one.

My Say... #175

Why should you let any one around you to overshadow your dreams by their obscene predictions? Of all, a person who makes you appear weak by his skills of lying about your future through his fortune telling and manipulative skills. After all that is a means of earning for an astrologer. No materialistic thing is going to bring any luck to any one. It's sheer effort and persistent dedication and growing knowledge that does.

My Say... #169

Some people get affected by other's happiness, at times that they start feeling others are happier than they are, in life. This even makes a person envy other's happiness. But what they don't realize is, people only share their happy moment with everyone, and keep much of the boring moments to themselves.

God, for me, is not of a particular form. God is energy, my inner conscience. The people, whom the world considers as God, were normal persons who showed an act of bravery, inspiring the world for many ages. I see God in my parents, my family, and the people who show an act of kindness, selflessness, help someone in need, in music, in painting, in meditation, in me.

My Say... # 165

No matter what one may believe, he/she should never try to force their beliefs on to others with fallacies.

My Say... #164

When a person (Spiritual Leader) starts preaching  influencing a large number of people, he is just trying to share his views/techniques on living a happier life. We (a large majority) should be taking the essence of his 'teachings'  and apply it into our day-to-day lives, instead, we start making a God out of him.

My Say... #163

The day we quit believing and preaching all sort of superstitions, in the name of religion and culture, and the made up self restricting beliefs, we will start living a sensible life

Whatever you hear from the people around you, about yourself, does have a psychological effect on you, but, it is not of any existential relevance unless you believe in it.

My Say... #160

One should show modesty, and not always boast about their talents. But they should also market and advertise themselves once in a while , if not, people will not recognize how artistic or talented they are. After all, to keep up their talents also, one should be motivated and encouraged

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

My say... #157

At the end of the day, all the spiritual leaders, religion and holy books comes down to teaching us just one thing - make peace within ourself inorder to make peace with the world. Can't we do that by ourselves with a slow conscious effort? Do we need to pay money, or criticize others or wage a war to get inner peace?

My say... # 156

Never overestimate (or get overpowered by) the situationally excessive happiness you experience. Have a consistently moderate level of the emotion.  Because the  sudden decrease in the level of happiness is what subconsciously makes us very sad the next moment.

Even when miles away from where we come from. Even if we change our  lifestyle, as we grow, and as we shift places. The place where we spent the most memorable times of our childhood, will always remain the most cherished one ever visited.

My say... #150

Persistently being persuasive about something, is annoying to the person being persuaded, if he or she doesn't get the clarity or rather a detailed explanation about what and why they are being persuaded about in comparison to their thinking, there is no point in being persistent in persuading them.

My Say.. #149

When I discuss religion with people, I don't hesitate talking about the flaws I see in mine. Because none of the so called religions these days are preached or followed the way it used to from the time of its existence. But people  react situationally to my comments not making sense to what they actually follow. After all, everybody changes everything to meet their convenience.

My say... # 148

With marriage , comes understanding and acceptance. With children around, we learn patience and tolerance. While they are growing up, we see a reflection of all the changes that happened to us before marriage.
