Karma

What happens to us is not in our control. Let us accept it.  But how we are going to respond to what has happened is absolutely in our control.

We should take responsibility for it. What happened is created by our past karma.  

How we going to respond will cause the karma from which our future will be decided.

HELP WHEN REQUIRED

I gentlemen is having a habit of making "annadhanam" (distribution of free food) on Amavaisai days (new moon day - monthly once). But his problem is that nobody is appreciating his efforts. When enquired it is learnt that some people are cursing him for not giving food when they requested on non-Amavasai days. 

The peoples' complaint is that during Amavasai days many people are offering food and the food is available in plenty, whereas in other days getting food is not guaranteed. When few people, during non-amavasai days, approached this gentlemen for food with so much of hungry he refused to give food and also told that he is giving food monthly once to all. He felt that people not having any gratitude for his service. .

Where is the problem? Hungry is one which has to be fulfilled immediately, there is no point in giving super food varieties when the food is available already and feel proud that we have done a wonderful service. For people when they are hungry even a cup of plain rice or minimum food will satisfy them instead of claiming credit that we have given super foods (when the food is available even otherwise). 


HELP or SERVICE will be recognised only when it is done, at the time of requirement / required fashion, not when done at our convenient time / fashion.

Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?

Because we lose our calm, we shout for that.

But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you? Isn't it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice?

???????

When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other through that great distance.

What happens when two people fall in love? They don't shout at each other but talk softly, why?

Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is very small...'

When they love each other even more, what happens?

They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that's all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.

MORAL: When you argue do not let your hearts get distant, do not say words that distance each other more, else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return .
