People around you will be gone

As I was walking through the park yesterday, I noticed people walking around and observed them. I was thinking that all of these people will be gone one day. Some sooner. Others later. But, each and every one of us will be gone. So, all the petty things that we fret are not going to mean anything anyway. Same applies to all your friends and family. It's only a matter of time. So, enjoy every moment and appreciate the presence of every one - even people you run into at the parks, in the mall, or on the streets.

People have been happy?

I have been traveling a lot lately to the East coast. In spite of the economy, flight delays, and all the craziness at the airports, I have noticed that people have been very friendly and pleasant. Even the flight attendants. I am not sure why this is the case. May be people are getting tired of feeling depressed and unhappy. But it's good to see that people are resilient and trying to be happy. Life is too short anyway and why create all the unhappiness around you.

Has anyone else noticed this as well?

Every moment is important - Flight 447

228 passengers - young, old, man, woman, kids, adults, various ethnicities and religions, moms, dads, sons, daughters, uncles, aunts, grandpa, grandma..Leaving from Rio on Air France Flight 447 for Paris had no idea. Did they do anything wrong? No. Absolutely not. This was all destined. But, we have no idea when and how we'll move to the next phase of life.

We spend so much time living in our past and future and forget about present. Every moment is important and yet we waste it. Money, property, cars, luxuries, clothes.... they all mean nothing. Focus on the real things. Emotions, love, passion, giving. Make every moment a memorable one.

Bad economy, doom and gloom - it's not the end of the world

There are a lot of depressed people right now. If you are jobless with bills piling up and everything seems hopeless, you are not alone. But, remember life is bigger than all these things. This time shall pass as well like all the other times. Life is too short as it is. Stay positive and continue to enjoy every moment. Talk to people who are positive so you don't keep diving into further negativity. To find a job, get out to as many networking events as you can - you'd be surprised how connecting with other people can lead you to ideas and opportunities. If you have too many bills that are overdue, pick up the phone and talk to your credit card companies to come up with a reasonable plan. Whatever you do, stay positive. Think positive. We all have the power to turn things around. Feel it. Believe it. It'll happen.

Madoff Scandal - Karma at play?

A lot of people have asked me if Karma is always from previous lives or current lives. The quick answer is both. We have to pay for our deeds from the previous birth and this year. What Madoff did to thousands of investors is already have an effect on his current life. He's move from a penthouse flat to a small prison cell. He'll live in this hell every day for the rest of his life. So, he'll pay for his karma in this life. But, it might not be enough. In his next live, his payback might continue. What do you think?

Captain C.B. Sully Sullenberger

Captain Sully from Danville California is truly a hero by saving 150 lives. If you think about this landing in New York a few days ago from a philosophical perspective, what do you think it means? Was it just a coincidence? I don't believe that. There was some deeper meaning behind this. Either it's Captain Sully's destiny that's supposed to change with this or may be there were some people on the plane who will now have a totally different perspective on life. Or may be there were supposed to be casualties on that day but someone's strong prayers on the plane changed the course. You have to wonder. Mysteries of life continue....
