Don’t centre your life on temporary or transient things; that way your peace, happiness, feeling of completeness and contentment too would be, at best, temporary.
Base your life, instead, on everlasting things which give you a sense of fulfillment. Your position in life, your wealth, your looks and so on will disappear with the passage of time; the more you try to hang on to them, the more insecure you’ll feel because you will always be scared of losing them.
Rise above all this and aim at things that will bring you inner peace while you are alive and will also outlast you. Your attitude should always be of being merciful, always be kind, compassionate, gentle, loving, caring and empathetic. The more you give of these the more you will receive; it’s that kind of wealth which will never diminish with the passage of time despite being spent- it’ll keep adding up and also give you a sense of fulfillment. ~Latika Teotia
God sends His Angels, disguised as human beings, when we feel that we are in deep trouble or when nothing seems to go right or when we feel lonely and unloved or when our world appears to have turned topsy turrvy. They appear out of the blue, put our life back on rails and depart.
The problem with us is that we get so attached to them that we just can’t reconcile to the idea of their ever leaving us- little realizing that they have temporarily come into our lives and are supposed to leave once their mission is accomplished. We mistake them for the people who are a permanent part of our lives and don’t understand why they should ever leave us. We find it very painful and have utmost difficulty in letting them go.
The essence of life is that we are all transient, each of us has a particular role to play that God has already scripted for us and after performing our parts we too must to bid adieu. The earlier we accept this the happier and more at peace we will be. ~Latika Teotia
