Love ain't enough No, it ain't enough Neither is reason Nor words of any kind Nor memories fresh Nothing calms the soul Other than a wistful withdrawal Into one's own Being To find therein An erasure of every longing Intertwined inextricably With a non-lonely aloneness.
It is said that one's left hand should not know what one's right hand is giving in charity. True. But, I am NOT sharing this certificate (see below) to get praise and appreciation from you NOR am I trying to secure some brownie points with God or my karmic account by contributing to charity.

Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essays have some gems of wisdom that I really hold dear to heart.
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in. Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays.

"Philosophy improperly understood is religion."---Yours Truly
I have noticed that human beings often judge other people based on the notion that a human being is a static entity. When they talk about other human beings, they somehow unconsciously assume that the person never changes. We often reduce human beings into mere labels such as ‘he is a good guy’, ‘he is a bad guy’ etc. We tend to define human beings and confine people within the boundary of a definition. This is usually based on a very short time acquaintance with another human being. You may know a person for the past six months and within those six months that person has already been conceptualized as a static entity inside your mind; Based on how you react to the experiences with that person, you tend to form an opinion that never changes in your life. I mean, you never bother to revise that opinion.
