I just heard some bad news. One of my friends lost her mother to Cancer last week.
I wondered why are there so many problems in this World. There are many people dying due to diseases, wars, murders and hunger. There are some unhappy people who do not have a family (orphans) or have been disowned by their families. Then there are oppressed people (women in some culture). Then there is poverty which is another source of unhappiness.
I wondered why they exist. Butr later I realised may be such things make people more human. Many of us are running towards a materialistic life. We want a lot of money, the best of clothes, the best of cars, the best house, good looking girl friend....so on....In this process some of us become selfinsh and only think of full filling our dreams. We probably need to remove some time and money for people who really need us.
May be visiting a orphanage once a week is not a bad idea. Donating money to various causes is also a great idea too.....
I hope I practice what I preach. Sometimes I just feel like a machine sitting in front of the computer all day......I should try and remove time......
