Il Detachment Makes Us Hardhearted & Attachment Doesn't ll

Is it True ?

Sometimes people think “If I become detached, I will become hardhearted.!! "

However, what makes us hardhearted is not detachment, but its opposite: attachment.
When we become attached to something, we experience intense emotions in relation with that object. But those very emotions can impel us towards unbecoming, immoral and hurtful actions, especially towards those whom we see as threats to our attachment.
At the *Bhagavad-Gita's* ~ Dhritarashtra enquires: "On the battlefield of Kurukshetra, what did my people and the Pandavas do?"

*The question reveals his bias* – the Pandavas too were his people, being his nephews....(but he was not concerned for them )...

Love yourself first!

The big problem today is that most people don’t love themselves. Society never teaches that it is possible to love ourselves. Understand that unless you love yourself, you cannot possibly love another person.

#love #selflove #nithyananda #Inspiration
Only when you lose yourself to yourself can you lose yourself to others. We are taught that we can only love even ourselves if we have a reason. If we perform well, we love ourselves.

#selflove #love #nithyananda #InspirationalQuotes #WeekendWisdom #SaturdayMotivation
If we fail, we hate ourselves. We apply the same logic to others. We love them only because of something, never without a cause or a reason.

Paltu was born and grew up in a
remote village near Jaisalmer in Rajasthan. From his childhood he
had been hearing about the glory of Badrinath & Badrinarayan the Lord of that temple. He was never tired of hearing stories of that Lord
every evening from the local village priest.
By the time he was seven years old,
his sole ambition was to visit
Badrinath in the remote Himalayas.
Even to reach Rishikesh by train
would cost a sizeable amount and
then one has to climb up more than 250 kms by foot in the mountainous terrain.

Though Paltu was poor and earned his livelihood by carrying bricks from the kiln to building sites, he was sure that one day he would have saved enough money to enable him to visit Badrinath. Even while toiling in the brick kiln, he was always seeing and

This is Sh.Musa al-'Azimi @Musa_al3azmi, author of these books on Sirah & bio of the 4 Caliphes.

These books are based on his reading of books of ahadith & their explanations (250+ volumes). But what's amazing is that he read all of them in the times between the Adhan & Iqamah!
@Musa_al3azmi He is the mu'adhin of his masjid. So for every salah he'd come to the masjid, call out the Adhan, pray 2 units of salah & then sit down to read.

Whenever he comes across anything related to the Sirah of the Prophet ﷺ or the biographies of the Sahabah, he'd make a note of it.
@Musa_al3azmi The times between the Adhan & Iqamah of every salah, according to his masjid, adds up to 1.5 hours per day.

He'd make sure to fully use this 1.5 hours in a day for reading and put his phone away.

After a few years, he ended up reading 250+ volumes!

When I was a kid, the Singapore river verged on being an open sewer. And otters were thought extinct on the island.

Here’s what effective green policies can do! #Inspirational #conservation #otters #urbangreening
How do you help critically-endangered pangolins cross the road?

Build a eco-link!

These wildlife bridges (not open to people) connect rainforest reserves in Singapore.

At a cost of $12M each, they are still thought worth it. #urbangreening #gardencity
On the subject of greening motorways...

This is Singapore’s equivalent of the M1.

The transformational power of urban planting is pretty magical. #horticulture #urbangreening
