Your True Belonging!

Your True Belonging!

Have a genuine look at yourself and your environment. What do you conclude after surveying the whole of you and the settings?
Well, the books which are kept on the shelf are mine, the curtains blocking the radiant rays of the sun are mine, the television belongs to me and surely the chair on which I’m seated is rightfully my property. So much so, even this body which I ill treat is mine! (Don’t feel offended, I’m only referring to that major part of the Homo sapiens population who love to shower hatred on their bodies, in different ways though).
Now that you agree to what I say, I would like to share with you one of the most satisfying quotes I’ve come across lately. It is from an incredible soul who goes by the name of Thich Nath Hanh:

“My actions are my only true belongings. I cannot escape the consequences of my actions. My actions are the ground upon which I stand”

Accurate to the core. The quote mentioned above is applicable to all the beings dwelling in the 21st century and especially to the ones who are determined to live a blissful and healthy life.
The only thing that truly belongs to you and shows itself to people first are your actions and how you react to any person’s action. Not even your mortal body will accompany you to the journey after death, it will solely be your pure soul and the actions that you performed (pure or impure) while you took the journey on this mortally alive planet. Believe me, the way you are with people and other living creatures truly defines your attitude towards yourself and consequently the universe’s attitude towards you!
Be good. Be kind. Be childlike. And be gleeful so that the people around you take delight in the warmth of your charismatic aura. Give good, Receive the best and don’t think of the rest!

  1. Loved the comment about your actions are your true belongings!
    So true!
    And I wonder how so many escape such powerful and true ways to live. By our actions and our words. How we treat others.
    Our accountablity to others.
    For there comes a time in all our lives, where we make mistakes. Where we either continue to take actions that afflict others in negative ways, OR, we take a look at how it affects others and take actions to change it, or be accountable for it.

    It’s a shame that so many don’t see that.
    That so many see the material world, what so many show to others and is accepted with open arms, by how much they have and what they have, instead of what they show in their actions.

    A great topic and words to live by!
    Thank you for sharing!
