SOME IMPORTANT THOUGHTS
If we commit mistakes
No problem, we all commit
In one form or other – everyone knows this fact
Nobody is infallible in real sense
While transacting something with sincerity
But fault lies in essence
When our ego stops us from agreeing
To have mistake so committed
Which is a mistake most terrible!
If I go to my meeting scheduled
At the time and date fixed
Then I shall meet all contingencies without any pinpricks
Thereby remain affable and unruffled
While meeting the demands of the work at hand.
If I am ignorant about something important to be known surely
Fault lies at my doorsteps squarely
Not in others for non-performance of our duty
Since I did not try getting know-how
About the things to be known
When it was required to know.
If I get angry on pretexts so silly
I shall not attract anybody around me most likely
Since nobody wants to have intimacy
With a man with no accommodative way of thinking,
If I fail miserably
While others pass with easily
It is not the fault of the destiny
But my own lack of effort to succeed.
If I did not get respect from others
It is not somebody else fault
Since I did not pay respect to others.
If I pray /meditate
Without proper without involving my heart
And my mind dithering
Here, there and everywhere
Can I get something in that exercise?
Definitely nothing substantial
Thence. Can I blame others?
Certainly not at all!
If there is no harmony in our household
Certainly my neighbor is not to be blamed
We are ourselves responsible for all this confusion and mess
Since it is all due to misunderstanding between the members
Who have conflicting views on anything which makes a sweet home
Since a house is made home when all members
Work for each other and meet each others’ demands.
If you have no moral fibre
You cannot advice others to keep one
For you have lost everything that makes the person a moral character.
If I have not paid my taxes
The tax authorities will book me for the lapse
If I am hauled up for this slip
Fault lies with me solely
Not with others around me surely.
If I have not done in life substantially
Fault lies with me and not on somebody?
I have to mend my ways effectively.
If I lose my temper just for nothing
Fault lies with me for so doing
Then need is to change my attitude
The sooner I do the better for me eventually.
If I am not able to pay my debits
And the creditors are after me
For giving back the loaned amount
If I have to face music of not payment my dues
Thence is it else’s liability than mine?
If nobody loves me
That means there is something missing in me
Through proper introspection
I’ve to be self-aware
And change myself accordingly
To make myself likeable.
If I am not able to adjust with the group
Fault lies with me and not with the group
Since I have to be adaptive to change not the group
As nobody would like to change for me
According to others expediency.
If we want to lead a life of spirituality
Which means we have to lead a life really
Which has the stamp of sagacity
To transact all our duties
With full accountability
While observing all principles with objectivity
Bereft of ill-will, rancor and thoughts so lusty.
