    Thanks for the response, Kamla. There is a misconception among us that by seeing good in others we are doing a favour to them. We are doing the greatest favour to ourselves. Science has not advanced to the stage of explaining this phenomenon. But it has been felt that if you see only good in every situation over a period of time, only good will happen to you.
    You have this quality in abundance Kamla. The way you appreciate all the posts, be it in recipes or stories, ramblings or religion, is ample proof of this.
    Thanks once again,
    love,

    Sir

    This compariosn of yours with the mythological swan is very nice. If the habit of taking good and leaving the rest out is practiced, a lot of problems... domestic, official ...can be resolved..they wouldn't even exist.

    This reminds me of "Kutram paarkil sutram illai".. by seeing the negative , it is only we who get isolated and not others.

    Regards,
    Viji.

    Thanks, Srividya. I will tell you what our problem is most of the time When we listen to stories like these we just take them at an information level. We don't take it at the emotional level or internalise the story. Thats why when the need comes we are not able to put to action the principles we learnt.
    When you think you have read something great just stop for a moment, ponder over the subject matter again and again, debate about the subject within yourself, then try to relate the principle to the events you already know and then if necessary take notes of everything. Now after all these processes, the learning is internalised. It will never let you down. Its like swimming. Once you have learnt it you will never forget it.
    love,
    sridhar

    Dear Viji,
    Thanks. All of us are inherently trained to be "auditors" - to find fault with the processes. But you know now auditors are trained not to be on a fault finding mission but on a fact finding mission.
    We find fault with others so that we feel comfortable in the surrounding. We feel superior to the other person. But unfortunately this practice corrupts our mind and makes us poor in human relations (kuttram paarkin suttram illai).
    Welcome to IL, Viji. And when you have time just read my new series, OH MY GOD.
    The link to the latest episode is below my signature.
    love,
