Cultivate a feeling – “Sharing”

It is not hard and it is not impossible but just a feeling of holding on is something that separates each one of us from others. What we miss the most in life is basics of life – Joys, happiness and moments filled with smiles. The root cause of everything that is related to the Joys, happiness and smiles is “Sharing”. We humans are formed with our basis around our environs – what surrounds us is the biggest weakness that eludes us to not look outside it.  Why shall I do it when the other person has not done it – Forgiveness is a gift few are gifted with and rest all denies to not learn it. I am not a master but I am always a learner from the mistakes I do, I see from others and I learn to seek myself into that place where I am able to do what others may not be even thinking of.

To share is a feeling, as a child – is a form of pure thoughts. When I was a child I used to play with my brother and I knew that sharing with him is a gift. Sometimes we did fight but we learned to live in harmony of keeping both warm and safe. Sometimes these logics seems outdated simply because kids these days do not want to go out – doesn’t have siblings – have too many PS3 games – endless food to munch on – Are we losing something here with time ?? Parenting – Are we forgetting to share what we used to do in Childhood with our children ! Many may not be in a stage to understand this but with time one does understands how evolution grows on.  Simply back in time – Sharing was once part of life which sure isn’t anymore. I do see that western world never embarked on those feelings but that is the reason why people seek more happiness in materialistic objects than in the real happiness. Happiness is not found in money, not found in the geeky gadgets and not found online but when you spark a reason big enough to share – you generate lot of elements that have not been visible to you.

In all these years that I travelled, I learned a lot about humans – we are all bound with our own ego of who we are but there is a bigger gift when you share. You generate a feeling of endless happy moments.  Some of these pictures below are a simple result of sharing that I cannot generate in this western world – the ambiguity surrounding us in this world is of complicated factors. I cannot go take the pictures in the same way I am used because there is no way to find these people who are willing to share.

All I can share is some of the moments from the past : Feel free to share, live and smile : Do not kill yourself in your ego, you may not be here for long or long enough to realize you lost your age, glory and talents in the fame of polishing your ego.

Joys of Happiness
Sharing the “Joys of Happiness”

Poor or rich :  Happiness always stays a question. Poor do not need expensive gadgets to realise happiness but they do seek comfort. Happiness is a free form factor that exists when we simply share.

Sharing Smiles
True happiness does exist.
Giving Joys :)
From the early days of travels : I travelled far and wide to know – there is no bigger joy than joy of giving without a feeling of expectation.
Sometimes the returns come to you in other forms – to just look back in time and realize – Life was as simple.
Sharing what you have even though it may cause you discomfort – may mean a lot to someone who is seeking that 5 inch of space which can make someone’s day – it means a lot to them.
There is always something you can share. Just as I crossed one of the highest passes in the world – there was these two shepherds who have just been showered down by passing snow.
I was even further freezing to just have been under that snow myself but then there as something – we all needed “Heat” – Not too hard to find where to get it and share it without any hesitations.
The difference it makes is – Would you have stopped ! to share !!
Faces of happiness
Who would say … It is not worth it ! All is candid and the joy that I do not feel who I am but I do feel where I am – I want to be part of each moment.

All that I learned was to smile, share and be happy : For this life is to live it for once. I am not rich but richer than most of you in terms of what I have. The moments of joys collected in years only because I shared them. I got friendships of the ones who I may meet or may not meet but when I see them again – I will show them the photos that I took of them years ago. To share it – is all that I mean with “Sharing”

Thank you
Friendship… A gift !

    Very Well said Mani I totally agree with you regarding the difference in parenting in todayd date…flying kites, playing marbles, hide n seek, climbing roof tops, carrom board,games perhaps forgotten over time, theyy stil hold more thrill than a high tech mobile in hand…i guess the new generation is losing a lot more…running…runninsg, gasping to realise what have they done apart from running the endless rat race…loved the pics….really neat!!

    Great post, Mani! I’m right there with you, that to live life to the fullest, one must be willing to share.

      The challenge is – to overcome the fear of being stolen, copied over or getting duplicated. But who in the world has a guarantee that they would be here for forever. Better live the emotions today then you are too old.

      Thank you for your beautiful quote, Andrea.

        I completely agree.

        I just love Tolle. I wish somehow read A New Earth each morning. 🙂

        🙂 The threads of our life have lost their meaning but I am sure we all have a choice.

        I will – once I can overcome my stack of instant doses of travel stories, history and present.

    Absolutely loved this post, Mani!
    I, for one, can definitely relate to it and I agree with the part that one can only live their life to the fullest when they share their happiness, their joy with everyone around and mainly, caring about them. Sharing is the key to life’s happiness! A great post! 🙂

      Shukriya Sarin, This is a fact that we need to realize and accept it – materialistic world ultimately fills the void but creates the endless void in feelings and emotions.

      🙂 Thanks for reading.

        Exactly my sentiments!
        And my pleasure 🙂
