God of small things…


“In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.” – Mother Teresa.

This is the thought that caught my eye when I looked at the Daily Mother Teresa Quotes. I found profound truth in this simple quote which shook me for a while as  I pondered on the gravity of this thought. How very right she was when she found this simple but most compelling and true aspect of life and love…

We all jump after bogus things in life thinking that they are THE most important things in LIFE! We look at awe at a couple who gets wed in the submarine, at the man who drives the latest sports car, at the huge lifeless concrete mansion on the sides of  river Thames, at the expensive jewelry adorned by the so called “socialites” at their high profile parties, at the much talked about life of “celebrities” who die a lonely death like the King of Pop, Micheal Jackson… But if we could only stop and think for a moment, we could see that all these vanities are in vain and they don’t really mean anything in the real LIFE. You don’t have to have a Ferrari or a Porsche to see the happy smile on the face of your child; they don’t even really care or find any difference between a Maruti 800 and a Ferrari  as long as you make them happy with your presence!

It is the act of doing small things with great love that really matters to the heart… It doesn’t cost you a penny to smile at someone, but when you do that it means a great deal for that someone – be it a stranger or a dear one. When you smile, you make that person feel important and good and this feeling for being acknowledged as someone important is inherent in every human being- be it a King or a Pauper. Start by smiling at someone and add to the small things in LIFE which makes great impact in our lives.

We were made from dust and to dust we shall return someday…..
