So many gods, so many creeds, So many paths that wind and wind, While just the art of being kind Is all the sad world needs." Wilcox"

There are so many that don't realize that the value of our lives is best measured not by the worldly possessions we've acquired, but rather by the wisdom we share, the hope we inspire, the tears we wipe, and the hearts we touch. The happiness and lasting contentment we get in our lives are not to be found in what "we have," but rather in what "we are." Everything we do affects not only our own life, but it touches others, too.

southpaw 10:36 AM  

I don't mind being selfish, hostile,uncivilized and extremely self-centred, after all we r the kind who provide some sort of variety to the so very dull and pathetic society out there...

Sarah 10:53 AM  

My grandmother's mantra was " what goes around, comes around"..I guess it is true

Shankari 11:10 AM  

I get frustrated when I see people who are very money centric , bit who will I crib about if there were'nt people like them

starry nights 11:30 AM  

life is one big journey , but we should try and make it a pleasent one.

starry nights 12:56 PM  

Southpaw..Variety is good if it does not hurt any one.

starry nights 12:57 PM  

Sarah...I really believe in this that what goes around comes around.I have seen it happen over and over .we have to be kind no matter what.

starry nights 12:58 PM  

Shankari...true it makes all sorts of people to make the world go around.

SCRIBBLEZ TO WAKEUP 2:37 PM  

I would like to say that what we have is because of what we are. The thing we have could be anything but unless we our good and have a clear conscious we cant even enjoy the little we have! Good thought Starry!!!! :)

starry nights 2:56 PM  

scribblez..yes unless we have that inner peace everything else is useless , we cannot enjoy.

Loga 6:44 PM  

Everybody do want to be good, But Everyone acts different based on the experience they have gained over years..so I dont blame them..

Keshi 7:47 PM  

**contentment we get in our lives are not to be found in what "we have," but rather in what "we are."

I love that line. Thats so true. I tell my loved-ones time and time again that conentment is not in some external thing, it's in you. But it's so hard to make some ppl u'stand...actually it's shocking that some ppl dun get wut u and I mean.

Keshi.

Kuan Gung 8:16 PM  

It all comes down to the contents of our character...great stuff...truly great...

starry nights 8:24 PM  

Loga..true experience makes us what we are.

starry nights 8:25 PM  

Keshi..I have to agree with you that contentment comes in what we are and not in what we have.because we can never have enough.

starry nights 8:26 PM  

Kuan..Thank you. it is something to think about.

southpaw 9:00 PM  

Being hurt or hurting somebody has different meanings to different ppl, but ya it shudn't be a deliberate effort, thats for sure.

chitra 9:31 PM  

Yes. Newton's Third Law 'Every Action has an equal and opposite reaction " applies to our life too.

Srijith Unni 9:53 PM

With Regards,
Srijith.

Keshi 11:22 PM  

**because we can never have enough.

Keshi.

southpaw..I am talking about deliberately hurting people with unkind words and actions. sometimes all it takes is a nice word to make someone feel good and place a smile on their face.

starry nights 7:43 AM  

Chitra..I believe in this. it is so true

starry nights 7:43 AM  

Srijith unni...Thanks

starry nights 7:44 AM

starry nights 7:45 AM  

"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main"



h@v@....I like this phrase"

starry nights 7:46 AM  

Chet thank you

starry nights 7:46 AM  

Has to be me..Thanks I believe in that too.

starry nights 7:49 AM  

Alter abheshek..sometimes we have to be reminded of these things because we are caught up with our daily lives and everyone is so busy and stresses out that it can be overlooked. I think even just a kind word can lift some ones spirit up.

starry nights 7:49 AM  

Madhu..Thanks just a reminder . I am sure everyone does and says a lot of kind words but there are some who need reminders.

starry nights 7:50 AM  

Sumitha..Thanks

starry nights 7:51 AM  

Ebun..I try as much as I can to live a life that will be positive, I have my own failings, but am striving to do better.

jac 8:15 AM  

"There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness."

Gaurav Jain 11:11 PM  

peace lies within us, not outside us. That leaves no room for worldly posessions.

Lovely post.
