    Hi friends, Every time when I surf the forums, I usually see several kinds of topics. Though there are many many topics with wide range of content...there are only a handful of variants that differentiates/can be categorized one thing from another.
    For eg:
    Some topics are only sexually oriented
    Some are asking for help or suggestions, opinions etc.,.
    Some are about hate and violence
    So on and so forth.
    But very few topics are there that support everyone and guides people to a good path for a peaceful, happy and moral living.

    The reason I joined RJ is that I could make some good friends online, to get some support...because, most of the people around me are completely lost in their daily activities, they are becoming more like machines with no heart, acting and living as per schedule...and in this process, they lost their soul in the confusion they themselves created in their lives and started living like animals...always cheating, jealous, angry, confusion, cunning, lust, greedy...everything and everyone frustrates me...
    it frustrated me so much that I couldn't bear anymore, and at one time(actually several times in the past) I thought of ending my life...but on one day I asked myself "If you can't change what's wrong, then who can?" this question strengthened me and gave a purpose to my life...now only this supports me to live.
    And ironically, instead of me getting support, I'm supporting many people and some of them are very happy which made me glad

    And coming to the point, I saw many people in RJ who are very stressful, confusion being insulted by fellow RJ members who are no different than some of the people around me, Then I thought 'though we live half way around the world, there is not much difference in emotions and morals'...
    I want to tell them and give them a bit of hope and support to make themselves better and then make the people around them better.

    From today, I'll be posting now and then some good inspirational messages in this thread that may be applicable to everyone and anyone could make use of it practically for a better living...

    @blueyedItalian &
    @Gordhunter

    Thank you for your kind words, But I cannot accept the credit because, all I learn, all I speak, all I think, everything came from the knowledge of the wise men who had lived before us...All I did was willingly listen to them. I'm still a student in learning all this.
    All your admiration goes to those people.

    @tmac
    You can start from now. :-)

    what he said plus, having patience with others even if we think they not as fast , bright , or good looking as us as we tend to think inside us. not in the arrogant way more in the "kindness to others" way.

    Thank you for the reminder, Harry. This one is the hardest to do in practice, in my experience.

    But, are you sure Diana Ross wasn't the highest of the Supremes? icon_wink.gif

    5. HOPE turns the destitute to survivor
    and makes the survivor to succeed
    and the succeeded to lead
    and the leader to inspire
    and from inspiration comes belief
    and from belief comes 'HOPE'

    Thank you :-)
    Don't worry, all good things generally takes time to achieve...
    If you find it difficult, take it slow, take one pill at a time.
    Whenever you find yourself doing something wrong, think about it for a while...By constant thinking and slow and steady practice, nothing is difficult.

    Though I mention all these, I'm not perfect either & many times I go astray & whenever I discover myself that I was diverted from the path I intended to go, I simply go back to where I left off and continue my journey.

    @spgem
    indeed; Have you noticed that, everyone talks about something they love, love to do, or achieved what they love...From this, it is unofficially proven that love makes people so alive...
    Behold for those who may misunderstand this...Truth is inseparable from love, If your actions for the things or people you love are not in the path of truth, then I boldly say that it is not love...it is purely Selfish, greed. Because there is no sacrifice in it.

    5. ARGUMENT & Why we shouldn't argue.

    We argue because, what ever the situation might be, we want to win over others vocally or we want the other person to accept what we're trying to say and disagree what the other says,..In a typical argument, we'll try to raise our voice, get angry, use insulting words, it makes us impatient, frustration, hopeless...
    but we rarely notice that the other person also always feels the same as you do.

    Remember that, no matter how weak, stupid, pointless & unintelligent you think the other person's view is, he/she still want's you to listen to them as much as you want them to listen to yours.
    Always try to listen with an intention that you might be wrong.

    So, the key for a successful debate is, 'not to argue but to listen first'. Let the other person speak first without any interruption & you'll always get time to speak & at the end, only the truth wins.
    "We win justice quickest by rendering justice to the other party." M.K.Gandhi.

    6. Every now and then, I feel very much lonely that even the loved ones seem to be distant. It is not because I moved away from them, but it is because they don't come close to me. And when I try to take a step towards them, they(stranger and loved ones) often move back because it looks strange, naive or even rude of me for expressing my true feelings.
    In the end, people blame me for being so lonely and depressing...but they never look at the reason for why I am the way I am. And if they did look for the cause, they can do nothing but staring deep into the mirror in silence with contemplating self reproach.

    Remember that, loneliness is not always one sided. Many times, it's the society that pushes people into LONELINESS.

    7. It is not mandatory for you to help a person who is in need. But you don't have any right to insult any person and you'll never gain any right to humiliate a person even if you had helped them.

    Because Insult is never a lawful right, it's the exact opposite.
