Friday, May 08, Reflection: Tuesdays with Morrie "Tuesdays with Morrie", is a book that I read when everyone who visited the library carried the book and raved about it. This was during those times when people casually threw Ayn Rand into discussions and dissected the amount of selfishness behind love and compassion.
The snooty college-goer attitude. Little tidbits of trite advice that everyone knows. Or so I thought. Since this is the period in my life where I have been searching for the very same simple words of wisdom, I bought this book from a used book store recently and skimmed through some of the chapters.
Tuesdays with Morrie is a simple book that describes the positive spirit of a dying sociology professor, Dr. Morrie Shwartz -- an old man, sharing some of his thoughts on his experiences with life, with his favorite student -- a young man, Mitch.
Uncomplicated, without any embellishments of mind-boggling analogies, profound ontological theories or ideologies, Morrie, a highly knowledgeable, wise, loving and positive man shared his simple and meaningful insights into life.
A person who lived his life in the most simplistic, yet fulfilling way that touched the hearts of everyone he met. In recent times, Dr. Randy Pausch was yet another positive inspiration.
That has been my greatest realization. They could very well translate to my tenets of living. The sense of beauty and harmony in that statement is priceless.
On Death - Ask a little bird on your shoulder if your time has come. Prepare your day based on such a realization. When one is prepared to face their mortality, the wisdom of how to live life in a meaningful way dawns.
Death ends a life, not a relationship. Be strong to open your heart and offer your compassion and love and be willing to accept love into your heart.
Never take them for granted. Abandon yourself and let the emotion drench your pores. Then, having shaken hands with the emotion, detach and let go; like a drop of water on a lotus leaf, being in the world but not of it, walking in the rain without getting wet.
Learn to accept, then detach.
On Ageing - Ageing is a process of learning as you grow. You are as old as you are in your heart. One can hope to find true meaning in life by opening out their hearts, caring for others, reaching out to the community and doing what they find real happiness in.
The returns are not monetary, but overwhelming sense of satisfaction, and sense of purpose.
On Reincarnation - "What we take we must replenish". The cycle of energy bundle in the universe needs to stay balanced. On Marriage - An experience in itself that teaches you who you are, who you are not, and who you cannot be. Create your culture founded out of love, compassion and rationality.
On Forgiveness - Remember to forgive yourself first. They suck our positive juices and leave us bitter and weak. Make peace with everyone, and learn to forgive.Reflection on Tuesdays With Morrie Tuesdays With Morrie is a heart-touching story of a retired Brandeis University sociology professor, Morrie Schwartz, teaching some of life’s greatest lessons to a former student, Mitch Albom, the author.
