สวัสดี เติ้ล

เติ้ลคิดถูกแล้วล่ะเรื่องการไม่มีโรคเป็นลาภอันประเสริฐ คงเป็นเพราะอานิสงฆ์จากการสวดมนต์ไหว้พระทุกวันอย่างเติ้ลว่าที่ทำให้เติ้ลได้คิดในข้อนี้ คนส่วนใหญ่คิดข้อนี้ได้ก็เมื่อมีอายุมากขึ้นแล้ว เมื่อโรคภัยเริ่มถามหาน่ะ มันเลี่ยงไม่ได้นะ ทำให้ต้องกลับมาแสวงหาความสุขที่แท้จริงในชีวิตที่วัตถุและของมีค่าไม่ใช่คำตอบ แต่หลายคน (รวมทั้งพี่ด้วย) ต้องรอเรียนรู้จากประสบการณ์ หรือรอให้เรื่องเกิดก่อนจึงคิดได้ แต่ก็สายเสียแล้ว ก็เป็นข้อเตือนใจนะว่าอย่าใช้ชีวิตอย่างประมาท เงินทองมากมายก็หมดได้ ร่างกายที่แข็งแรงก็เจ็บป่วยได้ พี่ตั้งใจว่าอยากเรียนให้จบเร็วๆ แล้วกลับไปทำประโยชน์ให้สังคมนอกเหนือจากบทบาทของอาจารย์ ยังไม่รู้เหมือนกันว่าพี่จะไปทำอะไร แค่มีความตั้งใจเท่านั้น เอาเป็นว่าคิดเป็นเรื่องๆไปดีกว่า แค่เรื่องเรียนให้จบได้นี่ก็ไม่ง่ายแล้ว เครียดอยู่ทุกวันก็เรื่องนี้ พี่ว่าคนเรามีเงื่อนไขที่ต่างกันไป และไม่ว่าจะทำสำเร็จหรือไม่ ก็ยังมีชีวิตที่ต้องดำเนินต่อและต้องทำให้ดีที่สุด เติ้ลเองก็เหมือนกัน เรียนจบแล้วก็ยังต้องมีภาระหน้าที่และชีวิตที่ต้องดำเนินต่อ บางทีก็ไม่ใช่เพื่อตัวเอง แต่เพื่อผู้อื่น เพื่อคนที่เรารัก เช่น คุณพ่อ คุณแม่ และน้องๆ เป็นต้น เพราะ ... ชีวิตเรามีคุณค่าเสมอกับคนที่อยู่รอบตัวเรา และคนอื่นๆในสังคม สุดแท้แต่เราจะสร้างคุณค่านั้นให้เกินขึ้นได้มากน้อยเพียงใด ดังนั้นต้องทำให้ดีที่สุด

รัก และ คิดถึงเสมอ
พี่ชาย

"วันนี้เรียนรู้ว่า ... ที่สุดตนเองก็เป็นที่พึ่งแห่งตน
...
การให้แต่ฝ่ายเดียว โดยไม่หวังผลตอบแทนไม่ใช่เรื่องยาก
แต่การกลับถูกหักหลังเป็นเรื่องที่ทำใจยาก"

Giving is receiving. You do it for your pleasure, not somebody else!

I think, I've heard an expression "Giving is receiving." somewhere before and that was long time ago the last time I heard that. I have to say long time ago because it wouldn't be easy to hear that very often, nowadays, especially during the digital age when we are all pampered by the aroma of capitalism and materialism, i.e. spending money seek for what we think is best for us, doing online transaction via the internet. With this concept in mind, we seem to focus only on ourselves and forget the fact that we all human beings live in the same world and share the same destiny. We most of the time think inside ourselves and that's why we sometimes suffer from happiness or sadness. I think it is wise to think out of ourselves for some time and look at others. As I said, all share the same destiny. That means people's happiness and sorrow are in some way linked to us by destiny.

So far as we have enough money to spend for all we need to pamper ourselves in the pond of lust and desire, we don't seem to care much about others. How can we give, not realizing the value of giving. Sounds a bit far from possible. I personally believe that people who give are those who suffered before in the course of their living and at some point realized the value of what they received from other people around them. That's how they learn the value of 'giving', not from the direct meaning of giving itself.

It was not until now that I really perceive this meaning -which could be true based on my direct experience. But since you're already reading up to here, I think you may be a kind of person who might agree with what I've said so far and I'm gonna convince you even more with further more examples.

When you give, you receive right away. There is no waiting for what you did to pay off and there is no use, actually, to do so. It's pointless waiting for the good deed you did to return as they say "What goes around, comes around." To me, you receive somthing right at the same time as when you give.

I have some reasons in saying so:

You have to know the value of 'giving' first before you will receive this kind of pleasure.
