Today the way we live is getting weirder every day. We care about the things which should not matter at all. We give hell lot of importance to pieces of paper which we are going to leave on earth after our death. We define a person thru his wealth, his status is society. Love is getting more of physical. Value of living being is reduced and is often evaluated with money. People kill each other for few bucks. Where are we all going?
Are we all are underestimating the powerful yet simpler and deeper things? Y is this happening? Y can’t we live a more spiritual life? Well I don’t have an answer to this question but this does irritates me to no end.
Touch has a lot of power in it. It can give life, it’s not just a physical touch, it has a deeper meaning. Like how does a child feels when his mothers touch him for the first time? We don’t remember how we felt but a child feels really joyful, similar to what most of you feel when your spouse touches you. Breathtaking..! Or how vigorously does your dog wags his tail when you touch him? It just signifies lots of love. Something to value for. Even a smile, it signifies acceptance. Its doesn’t costs anything but for the other person it means a lot. Just imagine you greeting your friends with a frown. They won’t really like to spend time with you. But just keep a simple smile on your face and it will attract all the people towards you. Similarly a kind word said on a right moment can have a deep impact on someone’s life. Sometimes just a word of appreciation can turn the life to 180′. Do you know what a person needs when he is going through emotional traumas? He doesn’t need your money, he just needs an ear who could listen to him endlessly, a hand which he could hold, a shoulder on which he can rest and a finger which could wipe his tears. There’s a small story which I want to share. I am just sharing a part of it. Once a teenager was committing suicide because she felt aloof, she called her best friend but couldn’t speak to her because her best friend was out. The girl picked up the gun and was about to shoot herself but suddenly her phone rang and it was her best friend. She immediately dropped that gun and shared everything with her friend. Her friend rushed to her. So it was just that phone call which saved her life. Just this act of caring turned her life for better.
So here is an appeal to wake up and start caring about your loved ones and give a little less importance to irrelevant things. Please wake up before it’s too late. Try to realized the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around…and care for people, love them beacuse Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble
