Random Thoughts 5/8/2016

Sometimes we seem to be our own worst enemy, we tend to judge ourselves by impossible standards and with a harsher eye. We allow the opinions of others to influence our self-image, which if its positive is a good thing but unfortunately people are quicker to point out the flaws and mistakes in others than the good points. WE ned to learn to accept our own imperfections as a part of who we are now, if we don’t like them then we can change them as time goes by. But no reason to be down on yourself for being human and being imperfect, it’s all a part of life and growing as a person.

By understanding this about ourselves we also to accept the imperfections etc. in others as well. This is good for it will foster a friendlier atmosphere be it at home, work and when we are out having fun. Life is way too short to be a perfectionist and one who can’t be forgiving of themselves or others.

Sometimes we get so caught up in our own emotions, thoughts and ego that we overlook the fact that the other person in front of us has feelings of their own. We allow our own pain and frustration cloud our vision of what is really going on. We all suffer from loneliness, self-doubt and emotional pain in life. No one has a monopoly on such things and we should try to be more understanding and compassionate towards others, because they too suffer as we do in life.

Forgiveness and empathy are keys to a happy relationship, the understanding of the fact we all are the same far as what we suffer in life opens up the door to forgiveness. Remember we all are human therefore we shall make mistakes, we all feel similar feelings and experience very similar hardships in life. If you look at it like each one of us are a part of a whole, then you will see that if one piece of the whole is broken the whole suffers. So to be compassionate, forgiving and empathetic towards the other pieces is beneficial to the whole as much as it is to the individual.

Each morning we wake with yet another chance to change our lives and the world we live in. Yesterday and the mistakes made within it are gone, though we still may feel their effects we do have the power to make up for them and choose differently today. Make amends for your past mistakes and move on, for looking backward will only lead to you tripping up in the present.

Now you have awoken to a new day and received yet another chance to get it right, go forward and do so with all your heart and with the best intentions you can muster. For what you do here and now will determine what tomorrow will bring. Make you choices wisely and be not quick to judge others, for we all have fault within ourselves regardless of how hard we strive to be fault free. Look not for fault in yourself or others, instead look for the flicker of hope and goodness within each person you meet. Build upon that which is good and kind within yourself as you do your best to oppress that which is not.

The world revolves around us as a whole, not around us individually. All life is sacred and all of us are equal in the grand scheme of the universe. No part is considered lesser or greater in the eyes of creation, so embrace the part you have and live that part with all of your being. Also remember what part you play today may morph into a new one tomorrow, no path or part is 100% set. That grand randomizing effect of freewill allows each of us to change our paths in life, though it seems a balance is always maintained within change itself.

Walk the path you choose full heartedly and without any doubt, be a force of good and a heart full of compassion and forgiveness.

mp900427741Serving Humanity, Something most of us rarely think about or we leave it others to do. Doing such things as feeding, clothing and help find housing for the needy or just showing kindness and hospitality towards strangers, visitors and others in general are all part of the territory of helping / serving fellow human beings. Why stop at humans, stray, abandoned and abuse animals also need compassion and food. A heart that is compassionate towards all life is a healthy heart. To put aside our own egos and our nature to be self-serving and to embrace a compassionate and humble mentality is quite honorable. It’s easy to be like the majority and worry only about oneself and those whom one loves and knows. It may a bit hard to be humble and dedicated to serve others, but the rewards are great. The satisfaction of helping others is just one benefit, the other benefit includes the friendships that will e forged in the process along with the creation of better self character. You will become more positive through doing positive and compassionate works. Though it is said one can not get into heaven on good works alone, that implies good works are one of the requirements one needs to enter. Good works are a reflection of ones heart and spirit, this is what makes the works truly good.

 

This Post Made me think of Matthew Vs 34-40

34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35For I was  hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee  hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Random Thoughts 5/8/2015

011  Honor, honesty, community and compassion are dying principles in our modern society. So are things such as communication and co-operation.  Too many set in their ways, so many unable to see beyond their own little bubbles of reality. It is us or them mentality seems to be prevalent, while such things as compassion, mercy and charity seem to be put aside. We tend to make each other adversaries or enemies as we ignore the real threat to us all. Ignorance, bigotry, elitism,complacency and lethargy threaten humanity’s ability to function and possibly threaten our future.

We allow such things as greed, lust, selfishness and fear get in the way of a better world for our children and the generations to follow. What kind of world do we want to leave for them to inherit? A world full of poverty, social division and inequality? Wars, famine and hatred?  I would hope we all desire a more peaceful and equally balanced world for our children.  A world where knowledge, compassion, honor and co-operation are cornerstones to society.

What kind of legacy will we leave? what will we leave for the next generation to deal with? Shouldn’t we try to face and fix the problems in our generation so the next can focus on their own? Fear and hatred needs to be controlled and put aside for the good of all humanity.
