Love and Peace

Peace

Whenever I see people around me in our society, be it a small old village with backward society or small town with middle class value or high society filled with sophisticated people. They all have different culture, different upbringing and different environment. Although one thing I have found abundantly common at every place i.e., hate, negative feeling towards each other. More than love, somehow we managed to find the reason to hate. Some place it is more violent, physical and some place it more sophisticated and civilized way. It is all depend of our culture and society, but at the end we all do the same thing.

Somehow, it has become very easy to find our enemy than finding our loved one. Not sure, why and when we have become like this. I guess we enjoy more bitching, backbiting and fake smiling than confronting people with love and appreciation. We spend most of our time thinking about our enemy, blaming other people or how make use of someone.

I think we should stop and think for while, what are we doing and where it is taking us. I am sure professionally this may be yield better result and success, but in this process aren’t we moving towards more on hate than love and sympathy. We should ask to our self, what are we becoming by following this path. We are getting blind folded with short-term gain rather than thinking about long-term loss. Just think if you are okay with same attitude will be shown to you by your nearer and dearer. In the race of this hate and fake world, we almost get lost in touch with our loved ones. We ignore or do not give due importance, love and respect to our loved ones.

There is famous quote by Martin Luther which says:

Martin Luther

“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends and love.” – Martin Luther King, JR.

This seems quite honest thoughtful words about our life. No matter how much we enemies or hate we do in our life, when we fall ill or when we really need anyone in bad times, then all we get our loved ones. Your enemy does not come to help or care for you. Hate only can bring you down and on other than love can only uplift and cure you for rest of your life. Then why should be we think negative about any one.

We must learn to spend more times with those people who matter most to us. We must understand and support all our loved once. We must give due respect and love to all those person who love and care about us. We must start trusting and forgive people for their mistake, so that they can also come along with you. We should start helping others to grow in their life. This will eventually uplift our own life to new and higher level.

Let’s give a chance to peace and love rather than hate and disbelief. Let’s us make stronger bonds with loved one and create new positive bonds with strangers.

Let’s Begin

”The very first company I started failed with a great bang. The second one failed a little bit less, but still failed. The third one, you know, proper failed, but it was kind of okay. I recovered quickly. Number four almost didn’t fail. It still didn’t really feel great, but it did okay. Number five was PayPal.” – Max Levchin

What if, I fail? What if I do not get expected result. What if, people laugh and make fun of me. What if, I get hurt? These are few what if, which become obstacle in our day-to-day life new endeavors. Often, we think more about people and results than task itself. We don’t even start and assume that we cannot do it. We don’t realize that we are losing the battle before it even begins. We carry one old life style without injecting new spices into that.

lets_begin

I was also victim of “What if”. I was afraid of starting something new.  It was because that I was not capable of or deserve that, it just because I was too afraid of result. So rather fighting for it, I gave up many times. Did not experiment or implement any new ideas.

This is not the way of life I should live; this is not the way of life you should live. There is no point of losing the battle which I have not even fought. There is no point of giving up on anything without taking any chances. There is no point of thinking what people think of me.

Even if you fail in beginning, then tell yourself, it is okay to fail; it is okay to get hurt. Don’t afraid of it, stand up and fight back. Even if you become reason for someone joke, then tell yourself that you have brought smile on someone’s face. Never let any excuses to come between you and your battle. Learn from the past and follow your heart. Trust me, at the end it does not matter if you win or lose the battle, what matter would be smile at your face saying, yes I have fought rather than regret.

So, let’s begin the new journey, let’s fight for what we want.  Let’s start which we have never started before. Just follow your heart, see where it takes you.

Why not to Stereotype

I always wanted to tell and write about it, never got the correct words for this. I guess this is the best video which explains everything in itself.

Due to this stereotyping, we have so much of hate in our society; we do not have any trust at all. It is not only about Hindu or Muslim. This is applicable for each and every type of cast, religion, region, and colour

If you do not agree on this, just have a look in history you will find millions of instance where we fought, spread hate and stereotype the people on the basis of their caste, colour, their region and religion and many more other things. If we solve one reason for hate, people pick up some other reason.

Hate and stereotype can never be solution for anything, it can only replicate, multiply and escalate the issue.

Religion for Ramakrishna Paramahansa

“I have practised all religions—Hinduism, Islam, Christianity—and I have also followed the paths of the different Hindu sects. I have found that it is the same God toward whom all are directing their steps, though along different paths. You must try all beliefs and traverse all the different ways once. Wherever I look, I see men quarrelling in the name of religion—Hindus, Mohammedans, Brahmos, Vaishnavas, and the rest. But they never reflect that He who is called Krishna is also called Siva, and bears the name of the Primal Energy, Jesus, and Allah as well—the same Rama with a thousand names…”

Ramakrishna Paramahansa, was great believer in equality of all religion. He has practiced and followed Hinduism, Islam and Christianity in his life time.

RamaKrishna Paramahamsa

In 1861, he accepted Bhairavi Brahmani.

In 1865, Ramakrishna get the knowledge of Advaita Vedanta, the Hindu philosophy which emphasizes non-dualism.

In 1986, he adopted Islam and start practices as true Muslim with five times Namaz.

In 1873, he started the practice of Christianity.

He realizes that there are differences among religions in the manner they preaches and practice but in spite of these  differences, all religions lead to the same ultimate goal of humanity and spirituality. All religions lead to the same God name it as Ram, Allah or Jesus.

Why be angry when judged?

I have heard many times people saying that they do not want to get judged on what they have done or what they are doing. They claim that whatever they do/did is their prerogative and as most of the people do not know why has done it, so they do not have any right to say anything or judge them.  If someone judges them then they get mad, angry and protest about it.  Some time it causes a serious damage to both side (person/society being judged and person/society who is judging). Usually it ends up with strained relationship.

If I have to give a thought on this situation then I will say, yes, everyone has full right to do what they want to do because they have full freedom to do so. Same time I could not understand the reasoning for getting angry or offensive when they get judged by society or person.

judged

I mean common, when you have complete freedom to do anything, same way other side of people/society has the same freedom. You are bound to be judged, you cannot be all alone and free in absolute sense. Whatever you do or say will have direct or indirect impact on other person/society. They will retreat you with their wisdom and they either criticize or praise your action.

Right and Wrong can never explained in absolute term. It is always relative to your culture, thinking, society, laws and your soul. Right for one person/society become wrong for other person/society and vice-versa.

So, there is no point of being offensive against any one if you are being judged good or bad for any of your action. All we should do is to sit down, take step back, listen to the critics and try to judge yourself from their and your point of view before doing any action on it. If we find any valid concern on their criticism then amend our action. If not then try to convince them and justify your action in appropriate way without getting alienating from them.

Judge and Peace can co exist if people understand each other thinking and respect each other.
