Hope and Friendship - Flyers DGS

It is well said that a person is not poor if he is broke. He is poor when he has lost hope. When we hope we establish our connection with the Supreme power. We ask it to help us achieve what we hope for, although we know that it is not in the hands of humans to achieve. We believe in things that seem unachievable by humans or happen on earth. So, we can say hope is a strength that keeps us alive. 

Six Reasons to be hopeful in life:

·       Hope is the state of mind when we expect positive results in the hard circumstances.

·       It gives us a reason to never give up.

·       It makes us think that things will work, even when everything seems impossible.

·       It helps us to stay calm and peaceful when the situation is not in our favour.

·       It makes us optimistic towards life.

·       Being hopeful helps us to better deal with our anxieties and prepares us to manage the inevitable disappointments that are a part of life.

A man who regularly attended family & friends’ meetings suddenly, without any notice, stopped participating. After a few weeks, one freezing night, the group leader decided to visit him. He found the man at home, alone, sitting in front of a fireplace where a bright fire burned. The man welcomed the leader. There was a great calm and silence. The two men only watched the dancing flames around the logs that crackled in the fireplace. After a few minutes, the leader, without saying a word, examined the logs that formed the fire and selected one of them, glowing most brightly of all, and removed it to the side with a pair of tongs. Then he sat down again.

The host was paying attention to everything, fascinated. Before long, the lone log’s flame subsided until there was only a momentary glow and the fire soon went out. What was previously bright light and heat had become nothing more than a black dead piece of wood in a short time.

Very few words had been spoken since the greeting.

Before preparing to leave, the leader picked up the useless piece of wood with the tongs and placed it again in the middle of the fire. The piece of wood was immediately rekindled, fueled by the light and heat of the burning logs around it. When the leader was about to leave and had reached the door, the host said: ‘Thank you for your visit and for your beautiful lesson. I'll return to the group soon.’

Why is a group of friends important in our lives?

Each friend that withdraws takes fire and heat from the rest. It's worth reminding you that all our friends are a part of the flame. It's also good to remind us that we are all responsible for keeping each other's flame burning.

We must promote unity among us so that the fire is powerful, effective and lasting. Keep the fire burning. It doesn't matter if sometimes we are bothered by our differences, quarrels and misunderstandings. What matters is to be connected. We are here to meet, learn, exchange ideas or simply to know that we are not alone.  So, Let's keep the flame alive. Life is beautiful with friends and family.  

One of our members penned this down beautifully -

खुशी ,उम्मीद ,आशा ,अभिलाषा  तमन्ना कितने शब्द हैं अपने खुशी को व्यक्त करने के लिए, उम्मीद दिखाने के लिए

हम सभी ने दो दोस्तों वाली कहानी सुनी, पड़ी ,समझी और सभी को याद भी होगी।  जंगल में एक साथ चलने वाले दो दोस्त जब सामने शेर को आते हुए देखते हैं तो एक तो पेड़ पर चढ़ जाता है दूसरे को पेड़ पर चढ़ना नहीं आता तो जमीन पर लेट जाता है ।शेर उसके पास आता है और फिर थोड़ी देर बाद दूर चला जाता है। जब दूसरा दोस्त नीचे उतरा और उसने उससे पूछा कि आखिर शेर ने तुम्हें क्या कहा तो इस दोस्त ने उत्तर दिया, ऐसे दोस्त से उम्मीद मत  करना यह एक बहुत बड़ा आघात दोस्त के लिए था।

मैं नहीं कहती कि हर दोस्त हर उम्मीद को पूरा कर सकता है परंतु उम्मीद तो रहती है। तो दोस्ती में उम्मीद और दोस्ती दोनों ही एक सिक्के के दो पहलू हैं हम ऐसे भी नहीं कह सकते कि हम बिना उम्मीद के अपने दोस्तों से जुड़े हुए और हम यह भी नहीं कह सकते कि जब हमें आवश्यकता पड़ती है तो हम अपने दोस्त को याद नहीं करते इसलिए याद करते हैं क्योंकि हमें उनसे उम्मीद है कि वह शब्दों के द्वारा और अन्य तरीके से हमारा साथ देगा या हमें समझेगा।

                                                         जीवन के हर कदम पर

                                                         हमारी सोच, हमारी बोल

          हमारे कर्म हमारे,

                                                         दोस्त बनाते हैं।

अनेकों उदाहरण हम लोगों के सामने हैं कि दोस्ती अपनी में एक उम्मीद है खुशी का पिटारा है अच्छे दोस्त जीवन को समर्थन उस में चार चांद लगा देते हैं।

Talking about friendship – it is a bond between people that connects them and let them share each other’s feelings and thoughts. Friendship is associated with care, share, trust, respect, concern and even love.

Six Reasons why do we need friendship in our lives-

·       Friendship is a relation that can see the truth and pain when we try to hide these from others.

·       A real friend makes us laugh louder, smile brighter and live better.

·       Having strong social ties can also decrease feelings of loneliness.

·       Supportive friends can help you feel more confident by offering praise and reassurance when you're feeling unsure.

·       Friends improve the qualities of our life and bring joy.

·       Real friends teach you a lot about yourself.
