Thoughts Affined to service


Friends! Donation and charity are two means which provide us enormous opportunities. If we donate we experience mental peace and our soul is contented. But we must be cautious as to donate only to the needy persons. If we feed who is already overfed, he would fall sick. Hence,its useless being benevolent to those who do not deserve.

All of us are too scared of death because it seems like a demon. But, what is more perilous and dreadful than death is watching our fellowmen suffer while we do nothing for their betterment. We must engage part of our time in helping others in whatever manner we could. But, this should never be to get back name and fame. Rather it should be for our own self-improvement. Thus it would not be right to give any credit to ourselves as it inflates our ego. We must understand that benevolence helps none but ourselves. It teaches us to be patient and noble. Even if we refuse to donate, it would not make any difference to the society because the Supreme Being has bestowed everyone with adequate means for survival. Here our meager donations do not matter much, but, we might lose an opportunity to help others and eventually ourselves.

Friends! The world is full of opportunities. But we are not able to benefit out of them. We can reap maximum benefits if we learn to mold ourselves to face the circumstances, we are passing through and prepare ourselves to avail the opportunities we see. A perfect co-ordination between the two leads to unmatched development of our character and disposition.
Here, what is primarily needed is, first a true and honest self analysis and then identifying the weaknesses. The final step is weeding out our weaknesses. After this we, each of us can reform ourselves and  and get a new rebirth with sound morals, principles and with a broad, modern and a flexible outlook.
We must also understand that to progress in life, planning is of utmost importance. Once a feasible strategy has been charted out, one must try to stick to it under any situation; eventually, success will follow. This implies that a person can elevate himself only by helping himself. Consequently the whole world will follow him.  The whole universe comes forward to help the person who is strong and determined towards his objectives.
