Sharing a powerful and thought provoking message of MOHANJI-GURUJI

Every child, every baby born in this world is the responsibility of the society, not just of the parents. And society has to groom them. Society has to behave well. In a world of corruption, in a world of competition, in a world of comparison, how do you expect each child to be individual and free? It is very difficult. That is what we are feeding the child with!

The child is fed with the thoughts of comparisons, thoughts of competition, thoughts of success and success means failure is unacceptable. All these things have created the child in a mode which emphasizes – “Go and kill and win”. This is what we are teaching children.

As I said earlier about our nursery rhymes, “Humpty dumpty fell down and broke the crown…” That was a disaster and nobody could fix it. Hence, we are telling a child, “You can’t fix the life, it’s not easy to fix life.”

But that’s not true. You are life. Life is about what you see and what you express and everybody is fine.

I have suggested in many forums that we need to have many more counsellors in schools, just to understand children, be with them. Teachers and parents are busy. Sometimes they are not able to complete even their work. So, there should be a system of counselling. Just ask questions like, “Are you alright? How are you doing today? Is there anything you want to talk to me about?”

What I mean to say is that we don’t understand what the children of the society are experiencing. We assume that everything is ok, everything should be ideal; these are assumptions. Assumptions may not be the reality. We must face the reality. We must look into the eyes of the situation. Then you can understand. And if you try to strengthen the children of today, society will be much better tomorrow.

It’s our responsibility, everybody’s responsibility, not one person’s responsibility. And there is no magic wand to change the whole thing. We cannot change in one day, what we created over time. You need to cultivate change and that will happen over time.

Time to contemplate

Self Reflection

My Mystic self — work-in-progress…🚶‍♀️

Planting a seed and nurturing it with love results in bloom, fruits and vegetables, hue of colors and fragrance. The most valuable gift of investing my time and efforts.

TIME- THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIFT

The Smiles, the happiness, the carefree enjoyment

Love

Flowing like wind

Nurturing like water

Limitless like Sky

Budding and blooming little ones

Today what they are getting

Tomorrow they will.know

The value of these moments

And the selfless Love of their mentors

Some give money

Some give food

Some give materials

But far and few who give  TIME

The most valuable and above all

Today Saluting those people

And their mission

“Unconditional, limitless and selfless Spirit of GIVING”
