The ups and downs coming in others' life do not make a difference to you; because you know that he is the other. If you wish, you can separate your 'being' from 'yourself' and then like that of others, the ups and downs of your own life will also not affect you.
Our 'mind' is as old as the existence; whereas our brain is of this birth. Hence, the thinking of mind is boundless whereas in the case of brain, it is limited. Since there is no possibility of unanimity of action between the two, we end up living in confusion.
In this world, the bond of love is possible only between two self-reliant individuals, but the question is, why would two such people live together?
If you carefully look at the vastness of the universe or the enormous depths of the ocean with awareness even for a second, all your sorrows will get dissipated; because then you will be left with no pride of being someone "great" or "exceptional".
Life is such a business, where for every gain you have to lose something. 'Losing less - Gaining more' is what defines success in business here. 'Big loss - Small gain' is a loss making deal in life... At the same time, depriving yourself of the gain, out of fear of loss is utter stupidity.
If you would genuinely be satisfied with your feelings, the certificates or opinions of others would hold no significance for you. So much so that being true, you will never have to justify yourself.
Other than our 'mind', what is it that we have, which we can call our own? Everything else is gifted by nature and made usable by science. At the same time, if you talk of joy of mind, it lies in "art". But then it is difficult to understand that in this process, where do we feel the need for these 'so-called religions'?
We are religious gurus. What do we do? Whatever you do, we brand it as a sin... Meaning, despite being dependent on your donations, we abuse you. Still this skill of ours works...because there is no dearth of intelligent people in this world.
Intelligent is not the one who has higher degrees or is knowledgeable about numerous subjects, but the one who knows his limits...meaning who is well aware of his strengths and weaknesses.
It is not that the Muslim community is not changing, but the pace is too slow. Why don't they understand that without adapting oneself to the changing world, one cannot really tread the path of progress.
