इस जीने का क्या मतलब था?

‘‘...अपनी ज़िंदगी में तुमने क्या किया?  किसी से सच्चे दिल से प्यार किया? किसी दोस्त को नेक सलाह दी? किसी दुश्मन के बेटे को मोहब्बत की नज़र से देखा? जहाँ अँधेरा था वहाँ रौशनी की किरन ले गये? जितनी देर तक जिये, इस जीने का क्या मतलब था..?...’’

People with Low Self Esteem

Was today going thru Shiv Khera's 'You Can Win' again. Was compelled to post the features of people with low self-esteem.

I have many relatives who take the world as described in the lines below.

I never realized these traits were due to low self esteem!!

From Shiv Khera's You Can Win :

People with poor self-esteem judge a person's worth by his possessions, not by who he  
is. They constantly look at what kind of car you are driving, what kind of home you live in,
what kind of clothes and jewelry you wear. They forget that people make things, and not
vice versa. People with poor self esteem place more emphasis on net worth than self
worth. Their lives revolve around ads and fads.

The second symptom of the death of our dreams lies in our certainties. Because we don’t want to see life as a grand adventure, we begin to think of ourselves as wise and fair and correct in asking so little of life.

And, finally, the third symptom of the passing of our dreams is peace. Life becomes a Sunday afternoon; we ask for nothing grand, and we cease to demand anything more than we are willing to give.

What does a teacher make ?

I make kids wonder.

I make them question.
I make them apologize and mean it.
I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.
I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

Love, trust and faith in directing
Is there communication in absolute silence and stillness ? Is there communication in a sense of being ? Beyond just the simplistic scientific ideas of thought transfer and telepathy ?

I have often felt such strong communication in the presence of absolute Love and trust. Not with just vague ideas of words like ‘Hey I love you” thrown at each other , but....

It’s the essence of all creativity, a huge sense of focussed discipline, followed by a complete letting go. Into moments of absolute faith.

Directing is so much like living. Love , trust and faith.
