Hey Friends,

Thanks a lot for sparing some of your valuable time and visiting my blog post.Its my first attempt at something like this.There are so many people who maintain an active blog and update their views and ideas on it to be shared with the world.Its a good thing as long as it helps someone.

Now, I have no clue what to write in my ‘First Blog Post’,but the basic theme running through my mind is about enriching our lives.What can I share with the world that would help in enhancing the glow of our lives.I thought of writing an inspirational story from the internet but then it would not have been original now would it?

Its very funny when you actually think about giving back to the world or society you live in.Take my example here. I am trying to write something meaningful that will help you guys/gals to enrich your life and at the same time be original.That is my attempt via this medium(blog) of enriching the society I live in.Though this kind of contribution is on a miniscule scale and would not encompass the wide variety of elements that feature under the umbrella of our society but nevertheless I am at least making an attempt here.I guess I can find some solace in it.

Now the question arises,what exactly defines a contribution.Now when we say contribution here;it would be of many types.You might give some money to a beggar or some food to the dog or cat in your building,or might contribute financially to a cause that is aligned with the upliftment of people etc etc. Are all these actions are either selfless or motivated by a reward (good karma n all).If so then the rewards you get for actions are very hard to be measured.It is a very intangible thing for when you act on the ideas of contribution mentioned above the feeling you get is what actually counts.That feeling is a reward in itself.The rewards of contributing or rather ‘giving or donating’ would very much vary from person to person depending upon his intent behind the contribution or donation.

Having a selfless intent,I guess, is all that matters,contributions fall in second.For only when you think from the heart can you summon the quality of being selfless.There is nothing wrong in thinking from the head but it will then also bring with it the quality of logic in perspective which blocks the value of thinking from the heart in a selfless manner.When you think selflessly then you automatically make the required contribution on your part.

Please note that this required contribution does not mean a higher or lower form (value) of contribution but making just the right amount;enough to bring a smile on the person’s face to whom you are contributing/donating and warmth of happiness in your heart and mind.

Here is an example:

The summer season is on.Please spare a thought for our friends who fly in the skies and nest on trees.They too feel the brunt of this heat.If possible please buy a small earthen ware and fill it with water and place it in your balcony,terrace or any such place you feel would be ideal for the birds to be able to drink from it.Also please find an area with shade so that the water does not become hot due to the harsh sun.

Also if possible plant trees(preferably of deciduous types) in your surroundings so that the birds animals can find shelter and also you would be able to inhale some pretty pure oxygen.Planting a tree is very much equivalent to nurturing a LIFE.

Do that and then please think how you actually felt after doing it(and let me know) . Please note that this small action on your part will go a long way in quenching the thirst of many a souls.

You never know who and how many might take inspiration from you and your actions might unleash a chain reaction of happiness and bliss in everyone’s life.

Remember friends,intent is important.When your intent is right, the world becomes a very beautiful place to be in and then accordingly your actions follow in harmony bringing peace to you and to the society you live in.

Once again thanks a lot for your precious time.

Take care n be good.

    Hi ! First of all congratulations for the first blog entry of yours and THANKS for sharing such a wonderful thought …..
    Its really very much true that the intent to do something in our life is very important and when that intent comes without expecting something that what i call it as a selless motive. Reading your blog reminds me about the quote in bhagvadgita, god says, ” karmanne wadhika raste ma faleshu kadachan” (english) you keep doing your deeds and dont worry about the fruits of that deed. its realy difficult to have this thought practiced in todays real world.
    Thanks a lot for the beautiful thought ! and keep writing !

    Sumukh nice thoughts…..but as a layman in this 21st century if you would think then we are so much absorbed into ourselves & our daily life we dont seem to be having a time for all these beautiful changes to be made around. As the time goes on & on with increasing population, The struggle to live a better life increases & those circumstances make the people mean & selfish…with a small question raised in mind, How can i live a better life? will diminish the chances of even small help you would be doing to someone & if you do help with that question in mind, u would always expect something in return. So if you would like to feel really happy after helping someone or something, just Rephrase the question, delete the ‘I’ replace with ‘Others’, coz ‘I’ is the EGO. Be selfless, As being selfless only brings you nearer to the divine & the true happiness of helping somebody..!!

    It’s amazing how much you can learn if your intentions are truly earnest…
    One lives with so many bad deeds on one’s conscience but with some good intentions in one’s heart as well… And that is what counts…!!!
