Care & Share !!

Sometimes I wonder what I have done to deserve such a good life. I was born in a decent family, had good support for my education, had good friends and siblings etc. Till I was about 8 years old, I never knew what hunger was, thanks to a very caring mother. In contrast, there are millions of children born into poor families and deprived of the very basic necessities of life. What have they done to deserve this?

In my later life, I have been fairly successful in my education and career. Was this all my own effort or was I assisted in this by others? Do I really deserve all this? Do I have any obligation towards others or should I behave selfishly and keep accumulating riches while others struggle on a continuous basis?

In reality we are all linked in this world. From morning till night we use a variety of products and services which are produced by some unknown people. Our entire life depends on the efforts of others. If this is true, what are we doing to serve others? If one questions thus, one will realise that a truly fulfilling and successful life is one where one feels the pain that others feel. A life well lived is one where one learns to care for others as if they were your own.

When we care for others and are happy to share our wealth / riches, the world will reciprocate and reward us with similar positive reaction. The joy we can see in others when we care and share without any expectation, is sufficient to gladden our own hearts. By caring for others, we are carrying out God's work of spreading happiness and joy around us.

So, care and share always.

Yeah right Vish! I always believe that how we treat others is just how we treat God. So if we say bad things to other we are also saying those works to our Lord. So we have to treat others just like we want to be treated. And if we share our blessings everybody will be happy also and the feeling of happiness will be doubled! :)
