She was not born famous, she did not aspire to well know. As she said,” We are called upon not to be successful, but to be faithful.”Her selfless deeds, her actions, her willpower, her hardihood and mingled labour spoke on her behalf. She was MOTHER TERESA.
She would have to spend luxurious life, but she chooses a different boulevard. Her life had not been easy. But the desideratum was strong enough to keep her going.
We usually are inspired by her deeds, her oneness with poor. But was that the only inspiration we sought? Was not there any other inspiration?
We sympathise with poor, we perform charity and that’s the end of all our feelings. Whereas she felt grateful to receive The Nobel of Poverty. This is not the only moral to penetrate. But more of them. Let’s have a look.
Nothing can be achieved without determination. This is the pre-requisite for any goal you wish to achieve. Whatever the target be, life never goes on easy terms. Similarly, she too faced hurdles. She too had to face Indian atmosphere. But her trust in god was indispensable. There was no greater force, that could surpass her determination to serve the poor. She too was human, she too possessed the human body. Which was later caught by leprosy? But the fear of death, could not overpass her urge to serve the destitute.
Even the glory of success, could not divert her from her mission. Similarly, don’t let teensy things affect your goal.
This is the major drawback in today’s society. We lack faith in yourself. We need continuous stimulation from outsiders to keep us reminding of our own calibre. Now, What is faith on self? It is trust in your own strength. It is power to stand up again after a great fall. It is the belief in self, to cross away all boundaries and create a new one. Starting from a Roman Catholic nun, she founded Missionaries of Charity. It was her belief in herself that today a complete chain of charity institute, that are running worldwide. Hold faith in yourself and then see the magic. Nothing can stop you.
POWER TO HANDLE CRITICISM
We are very much afraid of any negative comments. And that can ruin our actions. If you hanker for the eulogy, you should too handle the criticism. Mother Teresa’s success is secluded behind a lot of criticism. Her stay in India was not a facile journey. She was accused of not maintaining the hygienic environment for her people, but her benevolence outpaced everything. She never remained immaculate and was open to all sought of criticism. Let the criticism fertile the plant instead of decaying it.
The word ‘Love’ has incommensurable meaning. Mother Teresa gave the deviating angle to love. Her love was unconditional for God, for humanity. “I see god in every human being,” said she. Mankind was her lover. She did not believe in the concept of reciprocating. She always believed poor gave more than what society could give them. Poor were not to be sympathies or to be the pity but to learn from them.
Inspiration is spread everywhere, just the viewpoint needs to be changed.
