Waning Moon


Charity is honored only when giving is performed to elevate lives and giver is least concerned about own circumstances. And love, higher form of charity where you bestow your emotions unconditionally.

Give.

One of my friend once conversed with me that I have dream to charity $ 10 million for society when I will earn $ 1 billion a year. Certainly it is charity but I do not see this as highest form of charity, it will be considered as one of the free time hobby for billionaire.

Let’s take an example:

You find someone in library studying hard for some competitive exams but he is not having enough money to pay exams fees.

Your income is bare minimum, which can only satisfy family needs monthly and remaining is negligible savings but you find higher purpose of your money and someone’s life progressing leapfrog after giving exam and you pay the fees regardless of your circumstances, only because you envision better future for student(Even there is no blood relation) studying in library.

To give away $10 while you earn $1000 is more respectable than waiting for income to reach @ $1 billion.

Love.

Love should always be unconditional. Period.

With Love,

Nisarg

  1. Love is the process which purifies you. We generally love our family. But the highest orbit of love is to love every particle in the universe and that will also be the highest state of purity because at this state you put yourself at the last place and anything else ahead of you. Your selfishness comes to zero level.
    In today’s world everyone tries to be the first. Love teaches us the art of being the last.

    Thanks NJ for giving such a nice message. And here are the welknown lines which shows extreme love for god :
    “Mera mujh me kuchha nahi, Jo kuchha hai so tera. Tera tujko saup diya, Kya lage hai mera.”
    Most probably this is by ‘Sant Kabir’.

  2. “Mera mujh me kuchha nahi, Jo kuchha hai so tera. Tera tujko saup diya, Kya lage hai mera.”

    This is called love for God, everything else is love for what you expect from God.
