Why it is so difficult?

Article summary

There are so much of insightful speeches around the world from various popular personalities. They share some great introspective ideas which actually can bring the change which this world need. I have recently come across this speech which I found really insightful and creative at the same time to give such a powerful message!

Instead of treating this just as another talk.  Dive into the meaning of this talk.  Dive in to the powerful message, and look into your own self.  Ask why it is so difficult you to become such a person filled with love, kindness, compassion & respectful for other living & non-living surroundings.

Ask yourself why it is so difficult to respect another being or their view?

Ask yourself why it is so difficult to be compassionate to human beings too, like the way you respect your dog or cat or your pet? 

Ask yourself why it is so difficult to use your own mind to be thoughtful and identify what bring real joy & peace into your life, why you always seek guidance of others to be good? 

Just ask;

“why it is so difficult to be in love with all being while being loved by all beings?” If you dive wise into the depth of yourself, you will know that it is actually not difficult, but the simplest thing which you can do, among the most complicated lifestyle you have chosen for yourself. 

“You may use your faith to make people afraid & terrify them into submission OR you can use it to give courage to people so they rise to the greatest heights of enlightenment!”

That’s what Samma Sambuddha did… that’s what all the main religious teachers did.  Only some of the misunderstood disciples makes those such wonderful encouragement into a fear & terror & something unreachable, unbearable to many others. 

Have a blessed time by questioning your own self! And good luck with finding your own self!

"Neither power nor poverty can make your life more magical or less torturous... Whatever helps you survive is perhaps the oldest and simplest emotion known to mankind. And that is love."
