Epiphany of 2016

EGO three letters that hold you back from saying things your heart is dying to say like, I love you, I miss you and I am sorry.

Guys after seeing, reading, seeing people during this election, presidential debate. Seeing people angry, sad. Such intense emotions. Insults, disrespect. I have realized I must stand-up for what I believe in, but not forget the person I loved being & was. Last few years struggle/challenges took me away from me. Today i realized major reason for all or any kind of relationships to end are only two things:
1. Miscommunication (often misunderstandings, writing ill-thought out emails, text, face book, and other mass media); compared to the optimal and oldest way: face-to-face expression.
2. EGO: Often things are misunderstood. I want to be the person I used to be, so as the changing year approaches, I am going to start a positive streak. I am going to start by asking forgiveness from people I hurt unintentionally. I don’t think i ever hurt knowing I am hurting people.
So sorry, i mean it from bottom of my heart. I want to move forward starting today to forgive, forget, think positive, pray for world peace, respect everyone equally, be respectful to one another, honesty, be giving, be nondiscriminatory, be non judgmental & just be a good person.
Just try to be humble. I am human, will make mistakes, but will make sincere effort. Change takes time, but with sincere effort, anything is possible. I believe in spirituality & will do my best to create awareness & Peace.
People who have known me since childhood, most of them not here :), know I mean well & am forgiving & If i love & care, I really do & what I say is what I mean.
From Diwali, thanksgiving to New Years, why wait, lets start today. I make my New Year resolution, by starting today. Like I said before ” no conflict, no war has ever brought happiness.”
When “i” is replaced by “we” even “illness” becomes “wellness”
for EGO-take out “E” and let it “Go”.
Life is too short & it just passes us by. To Peace & Humility. “E G O – three letter word that holds you back from saying things your heart is dying to say like I love you, I miss you and I am sorry.”

Compassion does not see the faults of others. It does not see the weaknesses of people. It makes no distinction between good and bad people. Compassion cannot draw a line between two countries, two faiths or two religions. Compassion has no ego; thus there is no fear, lust or passion. Compassion simply forgives and forgets. Compassion is like a passage. Everything passes through it. Nothing can stay there. Compassion is love expressed in all its fullness.
