If you know yourself completely, neither criticism nor praise can decrease or increase your self value. You realise that everyone has a filter of sanskaras through which they perceive other people. #brahmakumaris #thoughtfortheday #thought4day

The one who sacrifices name and fame is the one who gets recognition.


When we make a positive contribution we usually want to get
recognition for it. We might not always say it in words but there
is always an expectation that others should recognise our


We need to make sure that we enjoy whatever we do. Since the task
itself becomes enjoyable for us, we don't anymore expect
recognition. The more we become free from expectations we get the
love from others and recognition too.

True love is felt by all who receive it.


Sometimes we do find ourselves in situations where others are not
responding to the love we are giving. We are trying to be
understanding and accepting as much as possible but others don't
seem to be recognising it. In such a situation we begin to blame
others and their lack of feelings and concern.


Instead of blaming others when our love and concern is not being
reciprocated, we need to check the quality of the love that we
give. If there is even a trace of selfishness or if it is mixed
with expectations, our love will not be able to reach out and touch
the hearts of others. So we need to make sure that our love is pure
and unselfish.
