On Money

On this article I would like to say a few words on the most crucial aspect of humans which made them into what they are today. As I found something on Dalai Lama's sayings
 Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered "Man.... Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

These statements from him rooted deeply onto my mind for once I read. It is unfortunate that if any of us asked to read those lines I bet most of us would be in complete agreement. But very less will have a real grasp of it and follow the rules of life simply. It is funny how the life's rules are so simplistic yet made so unnatural with just an addition of medium of exchange called 'Money'
Each day when I get up in the morning first feeling that goes though my mind is something that make me think 'competitive'. That something out there that I need to achieve more in life than others. A few term it as an ambition to achieve something of their life goals and achieve satisfaction. But what I see it is most succumb to having a feeling to have more money in their lives. 
Each day I see hundreds of people, what I find in most people have in common is that almost everyone in their lives have already got more than just for their survival on planet, interestingly another common aspect is none had been fully happy and joyful besides their life style being the best.We can see many businesses fail when their focus is primarily on money. Now a days business succeeds with 'Customer Satisfaction'. It is a clear example that 'Success lies in Satisfaction'.
I wish I get up every morning with more satisfaction than money. I wish I feel better of my own self than better than others. 
Agreed that money gives you satisfaction but not money alone. 
Agreed that money talks sometimes but not as deep as love.
Agreed that money can do treatment but real cure happens with caring.
Agreed that money gives the pleasure but not until you have peace to feeling it.
If there are millions things that money can buy. There are million other things which money cannot buy too. 

I wish I had more money but without breaking relationships.

without cheating others, without losing respect, morality, peace, values, time.

My friends say "Time is Money"
I disagree with that. 
Coz Time is not Money, Time is LIFE.
It is better we make Money in LIFE not Life to make Money.

Marriages are made in heaven

Marriages are made in heaven. What an untruthful statement, Someone who stated that would have been an outcast. I see marriages are made in caste, religion and creed. Although I believed that marriage is the most important decisions in life. It is something of two people decide to live the rest of their lives with each other. Living together certainly changes a huge amount of their life style. Sometimes they must make compromises, give up their tastes and live with welcoming dislikes. This doesn't happen between two people until that one aspect exists between them. That's love. Love between two people make them overlook their flaws, make them accept their likes and dislike, make them change their priorities.

Unfortunately our lives are predefined. Everything in life is already decided by somebody. Either be it your caste, religion or the society we live in. Our education, profession, beliefs, eating habits, language...including our thoughts are well fed without asking. Our Identity was already chosen, who we are and who we become is judged and justified on daily basis, a strong belief was developed into us onto which group we belong. We gotten into a self identification which brought a certain limitation rather than bringing an explorative nature.

Love happens. But today it doesn't happen. How does anything can happen to us, when our future is just a past tense of somebody's life?  Somehow we going to create it out of temptation to create our own self. Marriage has become an arrangement to bring two people of same community together irrespective of their nature. A few days after when they find the natures of each other their interest in each other is not guaranteed,  unless they fall in love. Which should have been happened by choice not by out of choice. Marriage takes away the choice, just like love does sometimes.

Not everyone can fall in love, not everyone's is lucky enough to meet the right people. But when we meet them our caste and creed shouldn't blind us. It's an utter foolishness to stop looking that which you want is already found. The real responsibility in life lies in taking charge of our life gracefully and steer in the direction which we truly want to go. Our gut instincts tell us more about our self than anybody else. Ignoring our instincts and striking them off doesn't change the life in any way. Because, if we don't listen to that which is coming from inside, we have to listen that which comes out of our community or society. And that which comes of community is only  beliefs and traditions certainly not necessarily the right person for us as a life partner. Respect our community and accept our lives infinity!!
