Hi blog viewers,
Thanks for following my blog which brightens my days!!!
My today’s post is about how to be liked by others. Some people are born with a likable nature; every one is attracted to them. Some are never liked. Others are neither liked nor disliked; they are just ignored. Why! Impartial God is not responsible for the uneven distribution of attractive qualities. The differences in each man’s character are of his own cultivation. He himself has created those pleasant or unpleasant qualities, in this or in past lives. It would be a great injustice if God were responsible for starting off some children with the advantage of likable good qualities and others with a handicap of obnoxious bad qualities. But it is not He who has established bad tendencies in some children and good in others; therefore we cannot hold God accountable.
God creates all men equal, made in His image. In order to see the justification of man’s seeming inequalities, we must understand the law of reincarnation. Knowledge of this law was buried and forgotten during the dark ages. Jesus spoke of reincarnation when he said:” Elias is come already, and they knew him not… Then the disciples understood that he spoke unto them of John the Baptist.” The soul appearing in one incarnation as Elias had returned in another incarnation as John Baptist.
Man himself has cultivated his bright and dark qualities. Some where, sometime, in this or other lives, the seeds were planted by his own actions. If he permits the seeds of harmful acts to grow, they will crowd out the seeds of good that he has sown. The wise cast out the seeds of evil from the garden of life.
If a person is to become likable, he must make himself more attractive from within. Some times even the most physically attractive person may be repellent because of the inner ugliness reflected in his speech and actions.
Never do anything that taints your mind. Wrong actions cause negative or evil mental vibrations that are reflected in your whole appearance and personality. If you conduct yourself in accord with the truths , sure you will find your life beautifully different.
One is judged some what by his dress, but largely by the way he conducts himself. Always be clean and trim in appearance. Avoid overdressing: fussy clothes and accessories make one look like a museum piece! Clothe yourself simply and neatly, and as befits your personality.
Mahatma Gandhi has proved that clothes alone do not make the man, He wears a loincloth, by way of identifying himself with the simple masses of India.
To give the body too little or too much attention makes one become unbalanced, fanatical. Look after the body in a reasonable way, and remembers always what is important– your mentality, your behavior, for that is what most persons respond to.
Be interested in others. Be genuinely amiable when you are with others. Consideration for others is a most wonderful quality. If some one is thirsty, a thoughtful person anticipates his need and offers him a drink. Consideration means awareness and attentiveness to others.
Practice consideration and goodness until you are like a beautiful flower that everyone loves to see. Be the beauty that is in a flower, and the attractiveness that is in a pure mind. When you are attractive in that way, you will always have true friends. You will be loved by both man and God!!!
“Look at the flowers- they know nothing of criticism. They just attract you by their beauty and fragrance, and you love them. Each one of you is a psychological flower; people will like you if you exude the perfume of soul qualities.Wherever you go be a beautiful soul- flower.”
By Sri Paramahansa Yogananda from “Man’s Eternal Quest”
