A reminder to oneself....

The following must have been an email forward sent to me by a well wisher a few years back... I am not sure why I saved it... but the words continue to inspire me..

The good you find in others is in you too.

The faults you find in others are your faults as well.

After all, to recognize something you must know it.

The possibilities you see in others, are possible for you as well.

The beauty you see around you, is your beauty.

The world around you is a reflection, a mirror showing you the person you are.

To change your world, you must change yourself.

To blame and complain will only make matters worse.

Whatever you care about, is your responsibility.

What you see in others, shows you yourself.

See the best in others, and you will be your best.

Give to others, and you give to yourself.

Appreciate beauty, and you will be beautiful.

Admire creativity, and you will be creative.

Love, and you will be loved.

Seek to understand, and you will be understood.

Listen, and your voice will be heard.

Show your best face to the mirror, and you'll be happy with the face looking back at you.


  1. Most inspiring. And very correct. If everyone follows it, heaven will come to earth.

  2. Very, very honestly, I wish I could get this into a few of the heads I work with.
    Instead of having to physically separate them all the time.

  3. This was just the nourishment I needed right now. Thank you.

    It is this screen of thought that creates the illusion of separateness, the illusion that there is you and a totally separate "other." You then forget the essential fact that, underneath the level of physical appearances and separate forms, you are one with all that is. - Eckhart Tolle

  4. I remember having similar mail some time back.
    How I wish all this was practical

  5. Appreciate beauty, and you will be beautiful.

    Admire creativity, and you will be creative.

    Good one

  6. That is so beautiful and inspiring.. Bookemarking it. Makes so much sense.

  7. Somehow reminds me of the song "Man in the Mirror". The lyrics go something like

    I'm starting with the man in the mirror
    I'm asking him to change his ways
    And no message could have been any clearer
    If you wanna make the world a better place
    Take a look at yourself and then make a change..

  8. Yes... it is inspiring.. and if only we could all follow then there indeed would be heaven on earth.... but yet we should try....

  9. Perumalythoma: A warm welcome to this blog...

  10. as they say..

    Some make it happen,
    some watch it happen,
    and some say, "What happened?"

    It’s we who have to decide ….
