Why exist when we can live. We are a part of this beautiful world. Lets work without expectation of profit.

Karma - the work and Bhala - the profit

Karmanye Vadhikaraste Ma Bhaleshu Kadha Chana
Ma Karma Bhala Hetur Bhumatey Sangostva Akarmani

Karmanye Vadhikaraste, Ma Bhaleshou Kadha Chana
- You have the right to perform your actions, but you are not entitled to the fruits of the actions.
Ma Karma Bhala Hetur Bhurmatey Sangostva Akarmani
- Do not let the fruit be the purpose of your actions, and therefore you won’t be attached to not doing your duty.

The above lines are from the book Bhagavad Gita ( the sacred `song of God' composed about 200 BC ). These words are in sanskrit I believe.

Living than existing

I never had been much of a positive thinker, but always had positive thoughts and dreams. I think that is what is called positive thinking. ;).

My dad always used to tell me this sloka. He used to explain to me that, whenever you do some action, just never think of the benefit of the action.

We live in a world full of diversities. People are diversified by uncountable factors. But always this question came running into my mind , what is the purpose of living a day? It is a difficult question to answer. For each and every person the cause to live differ.

Every time I asked myself a question, I was able to find the answer was with me. Whenever dad told me this words, I have sat for hours thinking, why shouldn't we work for benefit. As a kid, I was never able to find an answer to this question.

But years later, now looking back into the life time covered , one cannot say that he always lived upon himself, but time to time... someone was there to be with us. Someone have favoured us with something, at least a moment from their life, a word or a smile that have changed our life.

Every fraction of second, we live with all these people. We live days weeks and years. This life itself is a blessing. And every little moment we get is a favour. Each moment and smile we get , is a credit into our account of life. A credit transferred into our bank of life without any work.

For credits, there should be debts. And the benefit less work there, it is the debit that we need to pay. We are not talking about dollars, Euros or Rupees here. But the work here refer to each and every little moment we live. Living for others find more meaning than living for self.

Being a social animal or being with the society means lot . We have to care about people around us. Every man is different from the other. This uniqueness cover the physical mental and spiritual aspects of a life form. The special thing is that, even a smile at the appropriate time can save a life time. It is about being with someone when he needs us most. It is about smiling and giving a spark to live, when he is down. It is about tapping on shoulder when he needs care. It is about cracking a joke , when the pressure is up.

Lets put some credit into others lives. Lets live not exist. Lets work without expecting returns.

The best text I have got in life, it the first one I got into my cell.

Sometimes, the path travelled seems to be more beautiful than the destination. No matter what life turns out to be... Live life.

Lets live. Have a good time.
