What I Learned From Trees, by Herman Hesse

FaceBook  On Feb 12, 2019 Sethi wrote:
When I listen to trees , the message comes across of about the sacrifices they have made not only for humans , but for all living beings . They also convey the cruelty they have to suffer at times , for the trees that bears the sweetest fruits are the targets of maximum stones by humans . As a little child while staying with my grandparents , the date palm trees were a significant landmark to my grand parents home and as a child when I saw those trees , I understood that I was homeward bound and there would be joy within me .

The Question Of Being, by Adyashanti

Small Graces, by Kent Neburn

FaceBook  On Dec 5, 2017 Deepak wrote:

 Small graces means to do mundane things in life , like picking up trash from the foot path and throwing it in the garbage bin , hearing the birds singing as I go for my morning walk in the early hours of the dawn and connect with my inner self . Small graces mean visiting my ex wife's mother who was sick in the hospital as I wanted to connect with her and find out how she was . Small graces means being and doing things for others however trival it may be which would bring a smile on their faces and would make me happy .

When the British ruled India , he was in the police force and he was promoted to become an Inspector in the police one of they few Indians who rose to that rank during British rule . As a child he not only took interest in my education but also taught me the meaning of integrity , compassion , empathy and love , the values which i imbibed from him as a child . today it has been my endeavor to carry forward my great great father's legacy by setting an example of my own life spreading the values which I learnt from him . there is a considerable gratitude for him for inculcating the vales I imbibed from him .

 Sharing myself for me means that I share my inner most thoughts coming from the core of my being , they may be of my happiness , my joys or even my fears , of all the experiences I have gone through my life .  while sharing am at at peace with myself and also am constantly aware while sharing of my ego .  There were moments in my past , when the fear was too great , for me to share my experiences or my life , however as having been walking my path ,  experiencing the roller coasters in my life , learning my lessons , this fear has gradually become smaller and smaller , till it has ceased to exist and have moved on .

Beyond the Conflict of Inner Forces, by Cherokee Story

FaceBook  On Feb 4, 2013 Sethi wrote:
 Thank you for sharing . As a child I used to listen to stories and also read stories  of good triumphs over evil , be it in the Ramayana , Mahabharta and that got deeply ingrained in my DNA .   In my own life I have  experienced the same , When I have encouraged the negative part of me , that part got the upper hand and in the process my negativity became visible in terms of anger , jealousy , ego , etc . I had an emotional roller coaster ride and in the process my marriage broke up . However that was in the past which I have put behind . Thereafter the transformation gradually happened as I listened to the voice within and I uncovered the veil within  which covered the spiritual part of me . I encouraged the positive within me and love , trust  peace , understanding , humility , gratitude have been the dominant emotions of my life . This has also helped me to heal my relationships with whoever I have hurt in my life and healed the relationships starting with my wife .  It has been a wonderful experience walking my own path in life .

A Servant Leader, by Vinoba Bhave

FaceBook  On Dec 22, 2012 deepak wrote:
 The writings of Vinoba Bhave about leaders truly humbled me as the leaders of today especially in the India , think about their needs and not of the common man who has contributed so much for his making of  a leader . The leaders of Gandhi's generation now seem so distant , as if they belong to another age which will never come back . Time marches on .

A Servant Leader, by Vinoba Bhave

FaceBook  On Oct 30, 2012 Deepak wrote:
 To read , Vinobaji 's writing  one is  reminded of the Bhagvad Gita , which lays so much importance on identifying of one's ego and walking through it . The Gita also  lays a great deal of importance of selfless service to humanity without any expectations of being rewarded in return for the service provided . That is the true concept of " Servant Leader " . Vinobaji has beautifully described ,  " But on a moonless night the true servants shine forth as though they are connected invisibly in this vast and infinite cosmos ."  In today's world how many such servant leaders are there ???? Let each one of us reflect within silently and listen to that answer that comes forth .

Make Your Life Into a Giving, by Jaggi Vasudeva

FaceBook  On Sep 26, 2012 Sethi wrote:
 That was beautiful sharing . when the giving as a way of being , for me there is an an expansion of being and one just gives without thinking , whereas giving as an action , it would be the mind thinking whether to give or not to give and then the action takes place . Giving without ego  is one of the highest form of emotions one can have in one's life .
