It was my privilege to visit ‘Missionaries of Charity’ (Mother Teresa Ashram) in my city. I am not a Christian nor I have any links with Christianity but my first impression about the orphanage and the old age home was “Wow! How do they do it?” I believe in the concept of humanity and when I saw those Nuns working selflessly for poor and needy people I was surprised and a “Such people still exist…?”
The atmosphere was positive and I could feel the aura in the air and amazingly I started feeling happy… I wondered why?
The point that I want to make is that ‘pleasure of life is not in taking but in giving’. In case any of you thinks that nature was not kind enough to you visit, an orphanage you’ll see those children smiling. Children who are far lesser blessed…
Is it not a contradiction that even without getting any of the pleasures of life, which they may have deserved, they are still so happy?
I think if a person wants to remain happy he should donate his excessive luxury to the poor, if you feel bad about it try to see those people who were not blessed enough or to whom nature was not kind enough, this will surely decrease your ego and you find yourself getting happier!
Remember, we can fulfill our needs but not our greed. So value whatever you have and remain happy and satisfied!
