You do the best in your hands and move ahead...

Later, when you hit a saturation point, you change your direction in search of some more meaningful work. But one thing remains fixed-- you continue to put efforts. This is how I think we can define this man, Rasanath Das.

An IIT graduate and an ex-investment banker, Rasanath Das has now become a monk and has been helping the Wall Street protesters meditate. Belonging to the ISKCONites sect and having the great Radhanath Maharaj as his Guru, his life inspires awe. Following link has a brief intro about this great man.

How much to express?

In this world, everybody seems to be seeking love and attention. In case if you find someone not going through it, then it means that that person is seeking his love and attention from somewhere else.

Feelings will always come. That’s inevitable. Responding to feelings in moderation, but not beyond limits should be practiced. If you suppress the feelings completely, it makes you unhappy, frustrated and depressed. Hence, to counter this, a bit of expression is always required. But at the same time, too much expression makes you seek love from outside and shifts your centre of happiness out of you. It disturbs you, makes you impulsive and depressed again or bring in the distortions of love if you feel that you do not get that love or attention you seek for. Hence, too much of indulgence into expression and attention also has to be avoided. Balancing the expression and aloofness should be practiced again and again with awareness..

Feelings are inevitable. But, observing the feelings as they come and graduating out of them is essential for reaching the goal.
