Something fascinating happened this month. I got a chance to help out with the script for a short film being made by my film-maker friend, Vinod Bharathan (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3250521/). I also got a chance to click a lot of stills which turned out to be surprisingly good as well.
Sometimes it is that inherent need to impress that is wrongly interpreted as kindness. Do you really think you are ready to die for your loved ones? Perhaps it is your fear of being lonely, unknown and unacknowledged and that makes you do all the nice things that make you a lovable person. Perhaps it all boils down to the simple fact that we are all self-obsessed, every act is defined by either a need to feel relieved, important, accepted or out of fear of eternal damnation, hope of greatness in heaven or in the next rebirth. Think about it. Unconditional love, universal compassion.... no one will ever know if such a person existed because he’ll never flaunt it, his life would not be in any book, he wouldn’t care to spread his message..... He would probably just live consciously and joyfully; loving and accepting this world as it is with his infinite discernment and wisdom.
