Thought for the day

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others."

Mohandas "Mahatma" Gandhi

Excellent quote!
I believe that much of the ache and the brooding unhappiness in modern man is the result of his difficulty in using himself fully. He performs compartmentalized tasks in a compartmentalized world. That being said, there are vast urges of conscience, natural purpose and goodness inside him demanding air and release and he has his own potentialities, the regions of which are far broader than he can even guess at, that keep nagging at him to be used. I also firmly believe that you must go after your wish. As soon as you start to pursue a dream, your life wakes up and suddenly everything has a meaning.

Excellent response Sriram - thank you.

I love the way the quote tells us that the best way to discover your true self is to serve.

I hope you have found your dream.
