"Our thoughts are our karma" Doing anything to help someone or to serve someone is not karma. What we are thinking while doing that is. One can feel so much proud of serving others but the pride comes with doing that with respect. Thinking negative and expecting positive is a mistake. Never see what you give and never forget that you get. Elders are assets, mirror of our own future. If you are not happy with your future now how will you be happy with it later. Realised some of my mistakes but don't know when the ego will take the feeling away. Just writing it down for future reference.
