Mantra for Happiness :)

Mantra for Happiness J

Expectation is the cause of all unhappiness that we see around. Do good to others and goodness will come back to you. This statement proves everything. Very few people in this world are selfless in their action. You need to have a very strong heart for this.

 “Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed”. This is the secret mantra for happiness. A person who expects nothing from others does not have grudge in his heart. It is a bitter fact, but also very true that good people are often sad because they expect that their act of goodness will reward them with the same in return. But life is not so fair. Kindness, Honesty & generosity have no reward in today’s world. People make fun of good & honest beings. They are laughed at and titled as fools. This is very hurting. I have seen good people turning selfish because they expect reward in return of their act.

The lines of Mother Teresa holds very true in this context:

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” 

I am very blessed to have known two such people personally who without any expectation do what their conscience allows them, without any complaints. I will not name them here, but I truly respect them and will one day definitely try to have a heart as strong as theirs.

The best reward for kindness, honesty & generosity is peace of mind. A person who expects peace of mind will be the happiest of all.
