“What I spent, I had
What I gave, I have
And what I kept, I lost
A powerful saying with more in-depth meaning.
What ever we possess in this world as humans it is all from mother nature. We humans in this fast moving world due to ignorance and competition developed a feeling of possessiveness in this world.
This belongs to me,
That is mine,
You are not allowed to use this, it is for me,
Etc..........are the sentences we use to show our possessiveness.
At time I feel most of the people have possessions on money, land, inanimate objects, etc. Also I question myself that are we sharing with whatever we have with others? Do we all have the practice of sharing?
One of my senior friend who runs a NGO told that “sharing is another important way of positive living”. Also she said that “Those who do share are really fortunate that those who do not share”.
It doesn’t mean that we should share whatever we have. Even sharing a single piece of bread with those who are in hunger is the biggest deed. This is what means the true meaning of sharing.
I was talking about sharing and its importance with my blind students today in the personality development class. I questioned them asking what is sharing in simple terms? All of them gave different answers. I was inspired by one particular answer.
One of my blind student gave a wonderful reply saying that “Real joy depends on what we are giving and not an what we can get”.
I was stunned by her answer. I can tell that there is no simple definition that one can give for sharing than this.
Yes, there is no alternative to sharing. When we share with what we have to the needy people that is what the real blessing in our life.
That is why,I am sharing this story with my world pulse sisters which my blind student shared with me.
