"Try your best to treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself, and you will find that this is the shortest way to benevolence". – Mencius (Source : Sacred Space, Times of India, December 20, 2010).
Yes , many a time I feel upset about the way some of my colleagues, friends and neighbours neglect me. They don't wish me when they see me for the first time on a day. I think I care every one … but why people around don't respond don't respond kindly. Yes may be the way want every one to treat me … I may not have done. I may have been busy in my own way … and that I did not treat some one with due attention… due care … due love … yes I have to learn to be kind to people around .. If I ever want others to be kind and loving towards me. What about those who had been very kind enough to be … so much caring towards me … and I had no time to respond to them in the same intensity with which they treated me all the times….. If Asha did not say good morning to me …. Why I did not say? Why should I expect only the others to start … why not with me. I know this as to why it happens this way …. And why I keep forgetting this every time … and I have to read inspiring words of great people like Mencius again and again. May be… just like I have morning tea … I may have to read such simple but powerful thoughts every day … every morning .. may be every night before going to bed. Why should I think that I have arrived at some perfections …. Why do I forget to learn on a regular basis day in and out!
