Stop being Selfish to make this world a beautiful place

    Selfishness, I would say is the greatest cause of suffering today. Why are we selfish??its because we think we can get happy by doing a particular thing or acquiring a thing for our own purposes.  I dont think the end result is as satisfying as it should have been. I dont think we can ever be happy by getting things done just because of selfish purposes.Its one thing i hate the most since its forced upon..being selfish often urges a person to go out of the way, sometimes do the wrong thing which he/she does not do naturally.
   Selfishness, I would say is a curse. I say so because people dont know where to draw their lines and often start seeing their own benefits in circumstances. When a person is selfish, his/her thinking is restricted, he/she may think all the negative stuff sometimes to the extent of bringing the other person down, emotionally or professionally. Jealousy leads to selfishness, i ask you all one question..why to get is only because the person doesn't know his/her own worth,capability and feels the other person becomes superior for him/her. This leads to selfishness and we start to think of not only how to get our things done but also ways,means to get the other one down. Even if we achieve in doing so, we our destroying so many things, hurting others,emotions, you think anybody gains anything achieving this way?? the heart is a clean organ and when it is polluted, some voice will often tell you somethings wrong thus never giving you the ultimate satisfaction. We have nowadays learnt to turn a deaf ear to all this and get immersed in that superficial temporary happiness obtained by being selfish. I also consider selfishness in small things such as throwing the garbage on road. What is selfishness here???ever wondered??it lies in this line of thought-"I want to get rid of this garbage irrespective of the surroundings getting dirty"..very poor mind i would say..its excusable sometimes that we do it out of laziness but I personally think we must be critical of such activities and detest as well as not do such things. Having cited this example I prod people to think that being selfish is not just in getting larger things but also in such small activities..So before correcting ourselves for larger purposes, we must retrospect in smaller issues. These are the unrealized root of such thinking.
   Relationships is a bond which is made from the heart it is said, be it friendship also. Not anymore, I might have emphasized on this point many times before but I surely now feel that there might be a day, in fact there already is when relationships are need based. People break relations with some and use some
other person to get over him/her. There have been many cases of this sort??What is this??its just using people for one's own benefits??It shows weakness of ones own conscience, ones own will power. In this process unknowingly or sometimes with intention people are hurt while a person gets his/her job done to make others realise that they were just a puppet for that person to sail smooth and overcome the "high tides" of his/her own life. One fine day they will walk with ease and put you out in jeopardy.
   Happiness is such a "terrible sensation" sometimes because it makes a person forget what bad he did. A person who lives in the precincts of his his own selfish motives today will be happy for that feeling but God knows how many people might have been suppressed or hurt unintentionally for getting that state.This is where i say a clean heart comes into play. It will make you realise that this is not it, work for a greater cause, heal someone in need.
  I request all my readers to get out of this trap and illusion of getting happy by being selfish and having ulterior motives.Life is much larger than this, it is all about doing good to others, it is about basing relationships on understanding rather than keeping it need based. It is all about doing good to someone and always being indebted to the things they did unselfishly.I can just wish there may not come a time when men will love nothing but their own selves and get selfish to this extent even in loving someone. I hope to see a world of many mortals being unselfish
somewhere down the line...and make this world a beautiful place!
"Happiness doesn't come through selfishness but through selflessness. Everything you do comes back around"

                   Wishing all my readers a happy and prosperous new year. May this year give you strength to overcome all obstacles which await to be faced. May the battle with problems be easy.
        Now lets get to the topic,uncertainty. We say, life is exciting....wondered why?? does this come now???UNCERTAINTY...everything of the future is just a prediction.. Everything is just a shot at the cloud of uncertainty. As such hit by mundaneness, we get bored to some extent doing certain things as a routine.With everything just being as certain, life would even get more sullen.
      Not knowing what might happen tomorrow, sometimes I just keep my fingers crossed to expect the best.When I am down many times, this uncertainty acts like a silver lining in the cloud. Uncertainty makes me think that getting a smooth ride is something not very common and even if I get it one day, its never the same for the succeeding days. We see to our surprise, so many people achieving results which were never expected, its all because of the shot at the cloud at uncertainty. This leads to the topic of what is luck..??its just something which can be called as our fate, something not in our hands. Luck can be extrapolated very much from uncertainty. When luck favours us, we achieve results. Why so??if we are certain that we are not capable of achieving that result, we still make it. I put it this way..."there is something uncertain about ourselves which maybe even we dont know or have not discovered". The discovery of this new thing leads to some change in our life.
   Talking about change, change is a huge topic.With eminent people having said great things about it and its  an established fact that change is imminent. Personally I believe that change and time are the only constant things in life. We keep on changing ourselves constantly. Change, in so many ways is related to uncertainty. We try to adopt to situations not knowing what they actually are and find ourselves changed, making modifications to adopt to the best of our capabilities.Let us take an example: You may have an interview tomorrow, and you dont know what sort of questions can be asked what you do is prepare certain 'frequently' asked questions and then think that you are at your best to take on this uncertainity of not knowing what maybe asked.
     Talking about academics, this has led to a huge branch of research. Artificial intelligence today, is all dealing with uncertainty. Probability(the reason i highlighted frequently in the preceeding para), which people across various branches study today is based on uncertainty. Based on the current conditions and certain predictions, the chances are extrapolated. To put it simply, if there were no uncertainty the probability of every event would have been 1 because we knew what would happen.I also believe that if Time travel is made possible we can quench our thirst for all the uncertainty that exists???But the question arises is it possible??Can we defy the principles of time, as possible in so many games, travel ahead, see what lies ahead and be pretty certain about what might happen?
  Seeing any glass half filled, I vehemently believe its possible and the 'un' from the uncertainty will be removed. When this happens, so many lives would be saved. When a person is in initial stages of a fatal disease, we could just travel ahead to check if this disease really became fatal with time in case the detection presently just defied it. We still remain in the cloud of uncertainty in presence of extraterrestrial beings. With time this fact can be concretised and today we can be sure of their existence which we may discover tomorrow.These were just a few examples to cite.
   To sum up, uncertainty is all about foreseeing the future, merging tomorrow and today. Personally..uncertainty has made my life interesting today and i feel it is necessary to keep the ecstasy of excitement on in our lives.
