Add Life to Years

Here is an excerpt from Swami Vivekananda that can give us the strength and vigor to make this new year 2008 blissful.



I admire the swamiji for the following qualities that we should all strive to develop:
1. Daring
2. Sincerity
3. Steady Mind
4. Selflessness

This year, my goal is to consciously take these four striking qualities to a whole new level.

Here is a quick thought on Sincerity. The path we take to achieve a goal should be as pure as the goal itself. Resorting to illegal or unethical means to achieve a worthy goal is NOT a sincere approach. The satisfaction that we get on living life with a set of noble principles cannot be equaled by anything else.

Dareness is usually a side-product of being sincere & honest. When there is nothing to hide, there is nothing to fear. Steady mind can be achieved only by the path of yoga and meditation. We can selflessly spread love, care for each other, and make this world a wonderful place to live.

Lets add LIFE to years, and not just years to our life. Happy New Year to all... Have a fabulous year 2008!

I would like to agree with you that the path to a noble deed should also be noble, but alas, it is mostly not so for the most successful people, just as they show in Guru, the ways Gurubhai aka Ambani uses to reach the top.. But anyways thinking in ideal ways atleast in the start is a good enough start :) Btw, Nice verses from Swami Vivekananda

Ambani was sure an exception. To reach such great heights at a time when national bureaucracy closed all the doors for him, he had to find alt ways to reach his goal.

But, all exceptions are not examples! People should not break the moral code just to earn an extra pocket money, or to find comforts from dirty shortcuts.
