Bring light to the ignorant – Quote of the day 13th October, 2015

Bring light to the ignorant, and more light to the educated for the vanities of the education of our times are tremendous. -Swami Vivekananda Unfortunate but it’s true; we see more ignorance from the educated than others. Consider a simple instance; buyers who come on two wheelers often just part right infant of the shop; they don’t even think how others would come out of the shop when their vehicle is parked right outside of the shop; they only think “oh it takes me a minute to buy and come back” and they can get to their vehicle quickly but…

Human mind has unlimited power – Quote of the day 12th October, 2015

There is no limit to the power of the human mind. The more concentrated it is, the more power is brought to bear on one point. Unlike physical devices, human mind does not have any limit to store or limit to use. The more we use, the more it improves. Concentrate on what you do and think positive all the time. This does not mean we know everything or we have ability to do everything. Our mind also reminds us our limitation. There may be a few things that we cannot do or we don’t know; that’s OK. But if…

If you can’t help, that’s OK but don’t condemn – Quote of the day 11th October, 2015

Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way. – Swami Vivekananda If there is a situation and someone is in struggle, if you can offer a helping hand, do so unconditionally; if you cannot just wish them good luck and let them go with their plan but don’t intervene and condemn the situation. There is no point in just taking about something when you cannot help. If you have an idea to resolve the problem, do speak out and let…

Ridicule, Opposition and acceptance – Quote of the day 9th October, 2015

Each work has to pass through these stages—ridicule, opposition, and then acceptance. Those who think ahead of their time are sure to be misunderstood. – Swami Vivekananda It’s a general tendency that when something new comes, first community ridicule it, oppose it but when they start seeing value in it, finally they accept it. Though it takes time, but it does happen when any new work has value in it. This applies to human life too. When you propose something new, obviously first you see ridicule and opposition; it’s not the intention of others to oppose you but wanted to…

Comfort is not truth… Quote of the day 8th October, 2015

Comfort is no test of truth. Truth is often far from being comfortable. It’s quite usual that we think something what we are doing is right and just stay in what we are doing. Also, we feel very confident when we are within our known places; but that will not give us any growth. To realize and identify areas of improvements within us, we need to go out of our comfort zone. For instance, if we need real feedback on something we are doing, present it to strangers; we get right feedback. So let’s go out of our comfort zone…

“They alone live, who live for others” – Quote of the day 7th October, 2015

They alone live, who live for others – Swami Vivekananda If there is someone in need and you can help, do step-in and offer your support. Always think from the shoes of other person who you are dealing with. While making a comment or doing an action, think once “How would I feel, if someone says or does this to me?”. If something that you think makes sense or helpful, do not hesitate to speak-up. At the worse case, they may not agree; that’s OK. But if you hesitate to let them know, perhaps a true solution would be just…

Nothing is impossible – Quote of the day 6th October, 2015

Arise, Awake and Stop not until your goal is achieved – Swami Vivekananda Of course things may be difficult, but there is nothing in this world that’s not possible. Only thing that one needs to have is a strong desire to achieve. It may fail once, twice or several times but if your goal is right, attempt it until you get it succeed. In fact, failures teach us beautiful lessons and brings in great experience. In addition to desire, what oneness to have is attitude of doing it right away. Delaying something will let the interest go. So dream, desire…

Relationships are more important than life… Quote of the day 5th October 2015

Relationships are more important than life, but it is important for those relationships to have life in them…. – Swami Vivekananda Why do we see investors are pouring money into businesses of Social networking? Why are we using social networks like Facebook and WhatsApp? Why is WhatsApp become so popular that even it has reached users those who don’t even use computer? Because all of us do certainly need each other and want a platform where we can share our thoughts. Relationships are indeed important. It’s very simple to break a relationship but close to impossible to re-build. Why? it’s…
