Amigo! Slay the EGO

“Ego” is such an obnoxious and irritating negative trait that it rips apart relations diluting the propinquity with others. We all are from the same cloud. But still we have hidden intentions and desires that make us develop this “Ego” to satisfy the evil within us. By developing ego or by pampering the ego in you to achieve your so called hidden desires you may think and might be with an idea that you are winning over others. Definitely not. The darker side in you is dominating you and you laugh inside and cheer yourself up. “Ego” is like “A gun given to a mad person and who never takes his hand off his trigger” killing so many innocent civilians but is happy and content with the his actions. The more you water the seed of “Ego” and let it grow the more dangerous it is. It wages a war from inside of you and you will be in a place fighting against it but eventually you fall back and bite the dust making it win over you in every possible way. Slay the evil ego in you and see the new you.

Being someone to the one who had no one

Whilst I was sipping tea at the cafe I recollected my happy memories and chuckled. Suddenly, my eyes fell on a person on the road who had long dusty hair,brown beard, torn clothes, yellow teeth, blood shot eyes. I don’t know why but I became very emotional. Few minutes back I recollected my memories and was happy. I have everything in my life. But he seems like a loner. As soon as I left the cafe. I went to him and asked if he was hungry?  He immediately nodded his head and I made my way to the nearest tiffin centre and brought a plate of idly. The happiness he had on his face while having it was priceless. Even I felt very happy. He too might have had everyone in his life a few years back. He is one among us. Only, the circumstances around him have made him a loner. Yes, I call him a loner but not a beggar. He didn’t beg for anything. But looking at him I wanted to do something for him. If we step into the shoes of others and understand their feelings then this world will be a beautiful place. “Today, I have been someone to the one who had no one.” I will leave my mark. How about you?
