Heat has to be two-way………….. or eventually it just loses the charm!

fire and ice

When something cold comes in contact with something hot, the heat is transferred to the cooler object till they both reach a balanced temperature……..

In real life, that translates to the fact that when something impactful comes in tune with something less or a lot less powerful, all the great force does is keep giving and it gets nothing in return.

Eventually, it turns cold too………… and life continues without impact and actual societal growth.

That is what the law or rule of science states. Indirectly. So is that how the world was suppose to function?

It is very true to say that all great or at least the majority of the most brilliant scientists have had a powerful spiritual force and a philosophical side.  So whenever we look into any of their mind boggling theorems, we can take a part of our life and draw inferences from that too.

My article today is about one of the NGO’s.

I have always supported those less fortunate or less privileged in every aspect of life. But there are always exceptions in life and in these cases, such that, many a times, the good forces get taken advantage of by those less fortunate.

One such voluntary organization recently lost many a good volunteers and would keep losing more if the heat is only taken every now and then…….

I took a stand few days back in one such issue and fought for those who had come for a cause and got no satisfaction in return. The people who had come to help for the sake of helping the needy were taken for a ride….. by both those who were taking the energy and those who were the channel for the transfer of this heat and force…. It was an NGO and its so called, less fortunate members.

One has to understand clearly…… very clearly…..

Everything in life has to be two way.

If you need the heat, you also need to channelize and tune in enough support for the charge to remain and the power to be stable at least, if not growing. Or else, eventually, the power loses its charm on you and itself. The sad part is, people realize that only after the loss… but by then it is too late…..

The great Master and guide, Swami Vivekananda had once said, do not feel great that you helped someone, but feel huge that you got an opportunity to extend your services.

But I guess that has been used and abused by those who have taken the good heart and the good souls for granted in their life.

Trust me when I am saying this, I have seen big time NGO’s and voluntary organizations treating their members and volunteers as if they were doing some obligation by letting them contribute their time for the good of the few. At the same time when those less fortunate also take undue advantage of these good souls.

This article is for all those who have sailed on both the sides and also for those who have never been a part of the so called societal issues as they were busy crunching numbers at workplace, so fall into the hardworking, successful and happy souls of society category so to speak.

Someone told me few days back, things are a lot less worthy today as compared to their value before because the world has shrunk. I don’t believe that is true.

I say, the world has not changed a bit…. The only thing is…. Today, there is just less in it! Because so much has been taken over and over again…. We keep losing those with a heart to make a difference to the number crunching world of their own too fast off late.

Why, because, so much has been taken in and out of it that there seems to be a dearth of thinkers and philosophers today. And the way things are moving…. The world probably won’t remember them too.

I recently came across few organizations who fancied abuse of higher power at the cost of the talent, skills and most importantly the good heart of those who came there for a cause. The cause that seems to be forgotten by these NGO’s i.e. to extend a helping hand.

The bottom line being, if we need some positive charge out of life and when we can see it being delivered to us by someone, take the charge and win the confidence of the one giving the force to you. As his/her heart is like a Nokia battery, it runs for long, but you just keep using it…. It eventually dies off. Then…. Even if there is balance, there is no call taken, no voice heard, no network established…. As there is no life then left…..

So take and give…. Do not follow the principle of cold to heat and striking a balance… but create a bubble of energy around such that you rise to the level that you and the force gain the original level of energy possible….

Is that possible…. Why not… we are humans… we are not object of physics.

Like the amazing quote by Edmund Hillary to Mt.Everest goes:

I will conquer you again Mt.Everest. Because as a mountain you cannot grow…. But as a human… I can!!!

So grow and watch the world grow with you… if there is less in it…. Contribute being one… so that the charge never dies off…………….

As always…. Let me know your views and comments

 Be well

    your article made me think and reflect over such thoughts which often float in my mind…sometimes you are willing to give but the recipient is not ready to take in…recently we had been to an orphanage where we saw just new born babies abandoned and the elder ones asking us to take them in our arms..but the people taking care of these angels made a harsh comment n said”this is not a zoo”…these words wouldn’t let me go to that orphanage the next time i’d wish to… it was a good article..keep writing and inspiring…!

    Dear Ananth,
    Very thought provoking article. Being part of some of the NGOs I fully agree with your point of view. When the members of the NGOs start treating the NGOs as their own Fiefdoms their downfall starts. They do not allow good volunteers to enter their so called Fiefdoms fearing they would loose their power and importance. They become secretive and stop being transparent, they start running the NGOs like a business House without a heart. It feeds their egos to see they can make and break people. This is how the cause gets sidetracked. Someone once said it is very easy to raise funds but very difficult to get good volunteers.
    Thanks for the article.

    Hi Neela

    I guess inspite of all this when Volunteers and social activists make a difference i guess for the greater good it all works out fine. Lets hope there some sense gets drilled into them to underatnd the ACTUAL CAUSE AND REASON why they all hav come together.

    Keep reading and commenting

    Be well
