How many special people change, how many lives are living strange…

“Whatever happened, it happened for good.
Whatever is happening, it is happening for good.
Whatever will happen, it will also happen for good. 

What of yours did you lose?
Why or for what are you crying?
What did you bring with you, for you to lose it?
What did you create, for it to be wasted or destroyed?

Whatever you took, it was taken from here.
Whatever you gave, it was given from here.

Whatever is yours today, will belong to someone else tomorrow.
On another day, it will belong to yet another.

Change is the law of the universe.”

-The essence of Bhagavad Gita (The holybook of Hinduism)

Whenever you fail something or when you couldn’t accept the things that are happening to you, it will be very comforting to read the above lines. The trick is to stay in the balance even if something good happens to you. When you understand and remember these lines, you will be comfortable in leading a good life without being carried away by the life’s happenings.

Pay it forward

A lot has been written about the big bad and mean world of today. Much ink has been used to describe how indifferent we have become to people around us. I, however, choose to see a different side. We all know that a small act of kindness can go a long way in transforming someone’s life. I will show you people actually living by it.

A selfless initiative by a 33-year-old Rushabh Turakhia is changing the way people live. It encourages us to be kind, compassionate and help those who need us. Next time someone thanks you, do not end it by simply saying welcome. Instead, hand over a Your Turn Now (YTN) card and insist that they pass on the benignity.

Here’s how it works:

  • Request a FREE stack of YTN cards and carry them with you everywhere.
  • They are the size of a credit card, and will hence fit in perfectly in your wallet/purse.
  • When you help out somebody, don’t forget to pass them a card, and explain to them that it is now their turn to be kind and help someone else out.

These cards are free of charge and will be couriered to you, whichever part of the world you may be in, in a maximum of 10 days.

You can visit their Facebook group HERE, to read stories uploaded by users sharing their YTN experiences.

Visit www.yourturnnow.in or send an e-mail to rushabh@yourturnnow.in to get free YTN cards.

Spread the good word, and the kindness, people. I know you want to do it 🙂

P.S: It would also be nice if you leave me a comment on my blog when place your order. That way, I’ll know you’re out to do your bit to heal the world and make it a better place.

Thank you.
