BMV (Be My Valentine)
For my age people (1956 Model) it’s a new word that came into understanding only in the last decade. It is being said that put a finger in front of nose of any man and if no air is passing through it then you can conclude that he has stopped thinking about romance. The problem with men is that his body is subject to decay but his mind remains young till last breath.
Anyway purpose of this blog is not to explain about modern day romance but to give deep meaning to the word valentine. I wish to celebrate this day by falling in romance with whatever I do and extending my love to all beings.
Nothing worthwhile can be achieved unless and until you become passionate about your work and purpose. Before sleep if your mind is not with your goal and after wakeup if the first thing is not your purpose in your thoughts then certainly you are not passionate about your goals. On this valentine day, resolve to fall in love with your purpose, goal, target etc. The purpose of our existence is to become best in whatever we are doing. If you are a cook, try to become most passionate cook or if you are a cleaner, try to become the best cleaner around.
Being a Jain, I have been taught from my childhood not to kill even a mosquito or any living being, not even the plants. In other words the lesson is to love all living being. Everyone has equal right to live on this planet. The principle is simple. If you love someone, you cannot think of harming them. In Jainism, we have tradition that one day in a year we seek apology for all our thoughts, words and actions if that had hurt anyone knowingly or unknowingly.
So on this valentine day, I invite you all to “Be My Valentine”and I shall love all living beings.
