Today’s Inspirational Quote:


“Don’t just learn, experience. Don’t just read, absorb. Don’t just change, transform. Don’t just relate, advocate. Don’t just promise, prove. Don’t just criticize, encourage. Don’t just think, ponder. Don’t just take, give. Don’t just see, feel. Don’t just dream, do. Don’t just hear, listen. Don’t just talk, act. Don’t just tell, show. Don’t just exist, live.”


— Roy T. Bennett

Road to happiness


The Road to Happiness


Selfishness inevitably leads to dissatisfaction and disappointment, because desires are endless. The problem of happiness is, therefore, the problem of dropping out desires. 


Desires, however, cannot be effectively overcome through mechanical repression. They can be annihilated only through knowledge. 


If you dive deep in the realm of thoughts and think seriously for just a few minutes, you will realise the emptiness of desires. 


Think of what you have enjoyed all these years and what you have suffered. All that you have enjoyed through life is today nil. All that you have suffered through life is also nothing in the present. All was illusory.
