I, rather observe people from all walks of life. It is out of my own interest, I do so. Invariably, almost all with a very few exceptions, are egocentric.
Where is the Birth place of this Ego/Attitude?
Do not know, frankly.
Is it necessary to possess ego/attitude?
Learned People say, “Yes, to some extent”
That “some extent” is very huge in size!
It is not at all healthy. If one’s ego is pricked, he become annoyed and we all know very well the consequences.
I observed this ‘egocentric-ness’ in many including 1] Learned people, 2] Cinema Actors, 3] TV Anchors, 4] Rich People 5] People in High Positions, …….
THIS IS A GENERALISED STATEMENT AND CERTAINLY THERE ARE MANY EXCEPTIONAL CASES TOO.
Dr. Abdul Kalam was a live example of simplicity .
If this attitude increases and develops rigidity inwardly, we are inn for trouble. Our physical and mental health is disturbed.
On the other hand, if we are as simple as possible, we are able to mingle with the society which is a mixture of all categories. We feel light at heart.
What is life after all?
Sharing, respecting others’ feelings, smiling, extending best wishes, helping others at least with kind words, appreciating people that too children in particular, ……..
KIND WORDS ARE COOLER THAN THE COOLING AGENTS SOLD IN THE MARKET, IS IT NOT TRUE?
Why should we reserve our smile, why should we reserve our words of appreciation?
By making the Ice-rock [ego] melt, we feel lighter, feel like flying in the air, mind becomes wider, and hence the mental as well as the physical health improves.
All these years, we saw – only the poor suffering for money but after demonetisation?
Learned people too have something to learn from the illiterates who are very rich with life experiences.
THE SECRET OF HAPPINESS IS – ACCEPTING LIFE AS IT IS AND TRY TO LEAD A SIMPLE AND AT THE SAME TIME CONTENTED LIFE.
