The selfish, greedy and stingy of us.




Quite sometimes back, I was asked, "Why most of us are selfish in this world?" Is true! All of us live by incentives. Without the carols, we might not strive for the extra miles. As children, we were promised of gifts and rewards, if we excelled in our studies and sports. Even as adults, we needed the recognition and bonuses to tempt us to work harder. Or even in the spiritual sense, we are promised of a better world, if we live right. It looks like the educational system, teaching and the way we were brought up, make us to be selfish, greedy and stingy.

As I was reading, I came across this meaningful statement of happiness which I like to share.

"People go through up and downs of life and constantly keep on searching happiness. While the way to happiness is: Keep your heart free from hate, Your mind from worry. Expect a little, give much. Fill your life with love. Scatter sunshine. Forget self, think of others. Do as you would done by. Live a simple life. Try this for a week and you will be surprised."
