• Thank you friends readers and passers-by for your continuous support to my blog. I will not be able to update often now and many articles and short story left hanging in the draft box due to the pressure of time lately but nevertheless I am trying to cope with it and will post few as time goes by.

    Pleasant day and have a good life.



    Good things come to those who wait.
    Better things come to those who try.
    Best things come to those who believe.
    Desired things come to those who pray.

Affection vs Admiration

Salam and good morning dear friends and readers,

I hope all of us back to work with happy mood after a long break. GONG XI FA CHAI.

While browsing and reading few articles in the internet this morning I’ve found a short write-up by Sri Chinmoy about affection and admiration. The difference of two big words in human life.

Have a good day dear all


Sanaa 25/01/12


How can the need for affection and admiration be overcome?

Sri Chinmoy: The need for affection is not bad, but the need for ADMIRATION creates problems. We all need affection from God, affection from our dear ones. It is the mutual giving of affection that keeps us alive. Without the mother’s affection, it is impossible for us to live. But without admiration, easily we can live. The absence of affection from our dear ones is simply death. But if somebody does not admire us, no harm. Affection is in the same category as love. But admiration is totally different. When we are admired, the ego can come to the fore and destroy us. But when we are shown affection and loved, at that time our divine qualities increase. So when you get affection and love, you don’t have to worry. But when you get admiration, you have to be careful.

  1. Salam, mmg betul Sanaa. Ego itulah yg membuat org lupa diri dan tidak bleh berfikiran secara rasional. Lagi banyak admiration melalui recognition, publicity atau popularity yg diterima, lg banyaklah kerenahnya. Dan ego itu jugalah yg menyebabkan seseorang individu itu merasakan pendapatnye sahaja yg betul dan pendapat org lain tidak bleh diterima mcm RITZ fanatic fans dan akhirnya akan meruntuhkan self esteem sendiri. Tp bila difikirkan sedlmnye, inilah hakikat kehidupan. Mmg wujud manusia sedemikian rupa. As long as we know where we stand and how to draw the line bet fantasy and reality, and as long as kite masih berpegang kpd ajaran Islam, I think we will be on the safe side. Wallahualam.
