Self Reliance Is a Part of Optimism


Self-reliance literally means satisfying every want by oneself and not depending frequently for it. However, in the nature’s scheme of things, all livings and non-living are independent and sustain each other. Plants, animals, human beings cannot exist in isolation, they share life together. When an individual begins to take this dependence for guaranteed and ceases to make any efforts for himself, then he becomes like a parasite. Although we need other to live, so long as we are not self reliant, we have not started living properly. It is applicable to individuals as well as to nations.

Normally, an individual from the very beginning is taught to be self-reliant. A child is sent to school, then to college to prepare himself to face life. Today, parents want not only their sons but also daughters to be self-reliant. However, it is a pity that when we talk of self-reliance we normally refer to economic independence.

Self-reliance does not mean merely an ability to earn one’s living. It implies much more. A person cannot be called truly self reliant if he has learned to be not only self supporting but also to live right through a rigorous cultivation of spiritual and moral values to guide him in his life. Such a person thinks without fear and works with devotion. He develops confidence in his abilities, so essential for success in life. He develops power of independent thinking and taking decisions boldly. Such total self-reliance enhances his self-respect.

It is a pity that man has become so selfish. Unless man understands the true implication of the word self-reliance, there can be no moral and spiritual regeneration. It is a lesson that should be taught early in life while the young minds are being trained for a vocation. It is education about which can teach the impressionable young apprentice to learn to live and not merely to learn to earn a living.

Thus, a lesson in self-reliance can be begun early in the life so that no one grows up to be selfish, narrow-minded and live like a parasite on others. Such total self-reliance will bring about a dramatic change in the lives of man and help in promoting a spirit of mutual love, respect and faith. It helps users in an era, which Gandhiji had envisaged, where man will not feel degraded if asked to do menial work. On the other hand, he will take pride in being self-sufficient.

Can You Attain Complete Spiritualism with the Help of Knowledge?

Man deluded himself to believe that he was all-powerful. He began to reject the presence of a superior power, the creator of this universe. Undoubtedly, knowledge gives the feeling of strength and power. One can defeat a physically stronger adversary who is ignorant by using his mental prowess and skill. Ignorance is really a course. However, it is better to be ignorant, live in bliss than boast because of a little knowledge, and make a fool of oneself.
Today, everything is on the basis of knowledge. Man thinks that if you have knowledge, you have power. It is on partially true. According to the religious scriptures, knowledge lies within one’s self.  Only self-knowledge can give man the spirituality to withstand the vicissitudes of life, without getting disturbed. Knowledge of the world of senses is only superficial and tends to create waves of dissatisfaction, greed and lust only. Any person who has realized that can certainly say with clam authority that real knowledge comes from se…

Acupuncture and Weight Loss

There are a lot of people who are overweight. For those who are obese, perhaps surgery is the best option but for those who can’t, they can try to see if acupuncture can help take out the excess weight.

Acupuncture is a form of holistic healthcare that uses needles to help treat a patient.  Unlike the cartoon where the balloon will pop and all the air will go out, the needles that are inserted into the vital points will stimulate the body to release endorphins thus helping the person control their appetite.

But before needles are inserted, the specialist will first ask the patient some questions and perform an examination. This is needed to understand the main cause for the person to be overweight.

Part of examination is to help the acupuncturist figure out where the needles will be inserted. Your pulse will give the person an idea on your general state of energy and the general health of your stomach.

You will also have to open your mouth and show your tongue to check for cracks, pe…
