Beautiful people

beautiful people

My friend had sent me this beautiful thought and illustration. It’s such a good tradition.  Japanese culture is very wise. I want to share one more thought :

” The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

― Elizabeth Kubler -Ross

The American Physician is so right. Nothing is incidental. Even perfect beauty is not so appealing any more, they seem to be like Madame Tussauds wax figures. Perfect in proportion and  even beautiful without a life force. It is imperfection that is beautiful. It is details that is beautiful.  I heard Rajinikanth Superstar Southern Indian actor and a greater human being give a simple  defination of spiritual ” Spiritual is simply no ego”. The actor is right. If we replace ego with love. It is beauty.  Sometimes it takes a lifetime to reach there.

Great jobs is not necessarily great people. Cricketer Ravi shastri in a television tribute to great Indian Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar said ” There are great players who you can say ” as a person is a ordinary bloke “, but to be a great player and a great person is  special …”  Great jobs depend so much on variables, competencies and markets, we can always strive to be better human beings.

Leonard Cohen in a interview series with Stina Dabrowski said ” I think everybody has that experience, both young and old, of an uncomfortable quality to one’s life, a sense of defeat, and that can either embitter you, as it does to some, or it can open your heart as it does to other more fortunate people. I’m lucky to be one of those people. ”

I sometimes feel ” It does not matter if a broken experience is right or wrong. How does it matter?” We must make it a practice of constantly forgiving and bearing no grudges.  I do it all the time. If we do not  love and approve of ourselves, who will?

To quote Leonard Cohen again” I think love is all overlooking. I think to love you have to overlook everything. You have to forget about most things. And forgive, yeah.

I want to share one more parting quote ..

” Sometimes people let the same problem make them miserable for years when they could just say, So what. That’s one of my favorite things to say. So what.

― Andy Warhol

So then,  Just say” So what ” and have a big smile and talk to me 🙂

Goodnight friends! Hope you have a lovely day!

Thank you!
