SINCERITY IN OUR ACTIONS

SINCERITY IN OUR ACTIONS

Sincerity of purpose is one of the best positive qualities of an individual. Sincere dealings may be in our homes, in our workplace, in our day to day dealings with our peer groups, with formal and informal interactions, etc. If we are sincere in our actions then we need not care about the results of our actions. Sincere actions are self-rewarding and can be attested at all situations.

A sincere person always thinks the welfare of others over his own. The prime-movers for this fellow are uprightness and honesty attached. Temptations have no place in his / her scheme of things. In fact that person is flawless in his behaviour and is self-realized one. Similarly, that person gives more credence to others’ needs and aspirations rather than his / her own needs.

A person whose work ethics is cemented with sincerity as one of the main constituents will never aim for result of his actions. To act is his religion and then forget everything.

There are some people who have selfish motives as a prime -movers in getting jobs done through other means than legitimate. Much of the corruption that pervades in the society today is due to self-centred approach that we adopt in our lives. We attach too much emphasis on ‘I, my, me’ and less of ‘ours’.

A sincere person have the following characteristics that guide him / her in life:-

• Action Oriented Policy in life. A sincere person never confines himself to theory, he / she believes in action that too positive actions with good implications / bearings on the society in general.

• Sincerity Helps in Self Realization. By adopting sincere approach in life, that person never is misled and follows principles which purify his body off negativities thus paving the way to tap reservoir of latent energy dormant in the system.

• Honest and Sincere Approach. That person never puts off things because sincere one has his priorities fixed. His approach may be enmeshed with some unpredictable difficulties initially yet ultimately will always be vindicated.

• Ready for Action when Action is Really Needed. Honest and sincere person never procrastinates if there is a need of a help to be rendered.

• Sincere person never aspire for material possessions, rather, whatever he ekes through his present capabilities that person is satisfied.

• Greed, rancour, selfish motive does not touch such person in any way.

• Sincere person does not aspire for self-respect but respect follows the person due to positive approach in life.
• Quality of Equanimity. A sincere person always baths in peace both in bad and good situations.

With this intention in mind, I have penned down a poem titled SINCERITY, kindly go through and offer your comments. Your comments are the source of my inspiration to go further.

SINCERITY

Truth  whilst properly clothed is sincerity,
Its ingredients are godliness, realism and purity,
Sincere person is married to piety,
Who, for truth’s sake, will sacrifice everything,
To keep a word he gives without misgiving,
Also, is the one who for truth’s sake,
Will never compromise on ideas he holds dear,
That is why he is held dear by others everywhere,
And by extension our Creator Loves Sincere the Most ever and ever.

Greed touches him not,
Swayed by any external influences naught,
Hot and cold, happiness and sadness has do not touch,
Maintains equanimity in situations all,
Showiness trembles where he ventures,
Spreads fragrance by his presence.

His actions and reactions exhibit harmony,
Rational are his emotions with no tinge of vanity,
Passionately he wins every being with his sugariness,
He gives words and sticks to these,
That is why his words are trusted by low and highs,
Consciously, he is his own master to the area he surveys,
Is not dictated by anyone crossing his ways,
Believes in the dictum, ‘charity begins at home’.

Cleanses his conscious daily like one brooms a room,
Sermons others not,
But follows high-quality principles without qualms,
His best deeds are the ones which are loved by others,
Divorced from inner conflicts,
His body and soul work in tandem,
For a cause held dear by his conscience,
Rich in integrity and abundant in intelligence,
Holds his head high in the comity of people,
With patience and tolerance plentiful,
His sincerity is an open book with little secrecy,
Easily to be read by anybody who tries,
Abundance in essential sincerity, physical sincerity and spiritual sincerity,
He is more near to ONE ABOVE than anyone could ever conjecture.

  1. You have a very encouraging message, perhaps our civilization will work more toward sincerity and civility in our day to day life. Thank you for your kind words.

  2. Thanks Ma’m for appraising my blog and liking the write up. We have to get our inner voice to be sincere in our thought and action. Till such time, we should continue improving.

    Thanks again

    GOD BLESS

  3. I do agree about sincerity and like your essential description . My issue is that sometimes when people try for perfection they deny their failings and imperfections and thus cause a shadow within which acts in the opposite way without the person realizing it. Institutions do this also . The Spirit has to pervade us and enable us and we always need to be aware that we can be insincere even when we are trying to be sincere!

    1. In my life span of 62+, I have come across people at workplace, informal and formal institutions who by their personal example in earnestness has impressed me immensely. Sometimes they paid dearly for this uprightness even they did not leave their coveted path of righteousness.

      Such people do have a belief: I know,’ I am on the right path, my Spirit knows I am right, then what difference does it make if others are not knowing about my SINCERITY’. These people inspire me a LOT SIR.

      Kindly do visit my blog. All the write ups are part of my personal experiences over a period of time, which I heartily follow despite some hiccups.

      1. I shall certasinly do so and thank you for your dialogue. I agree with what you are saying and have had similar experience. Best wishes

        John

      2. Thanks for visiting my blog.

        Experience tells us that whenever your say is not heard, either change according to the situation or go in your own shell and introspect and be contented with the thinking – ‘I am right’ no problems arguing and be with it all.

        Then THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL BE WITH YOU – no problems others are there or not.

      3. I believe that any real sincerity and any real compassion and any real truth are from the Holy Spirit. sometimes people claim to be but they can be known not to be by their actions and lack of sincerity. My best wishes to you in the Holy Spirit Indeed In deed!

      4. In my view, everything that happens or does not happen, happens with the concurrence of HOLY SPIRIT only. Whatever happens, happens for the good of a person.

        Thanks for your good wishes.

        Holy Spirit may always be us.

      5. YES SIR, HOLY SPIRIT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR INFUSING FAITH, ENTHUSIASM, COMPASSION, SINCERITY, HONESTY ET AL IN US ALL. WITHOUT HIM WE ARE JUST NOTHING.

  5. I received a like from you on my blog, and as I usually try to do, visited your blog to see who the visitor was that had passed by, and nodded in my direction. I read a few posts, and after that read a few of the comments. Two things, especially, impressed me in reading the comments. One, that you are an Indian, and writing in a language not your own. I myself am a Jew, living in Israel, and I too write in a language not my own. And secondly, that you are sincerely welcoming the thoughts of others… even criticism, if you can learn from it. As I am an old man, older than yourself, I am allowing myself a few words of criticism here, hoping not to give offense, and hoping that you will find them valuable. In writing a poem, we usually endeavor to offer a message that is as direct as possible, like an arrow that is shot from the bow. And try not to weigh down our message without any unnecessary information. By presenting first an argument, and explaining yourself, and then publishing your poem on the same subject in the same post, I think you may be wearing the reader down, and he or she won’t have the energy and the lightness to enjoy your poem.

    You say that sincerity is “truth unclothed”, and hear I agree with you completely. However, you also say that sincerity is evidence of piety, of distancing one’s self from greed, of being uninfluenced by others, including even those emotional influences of happiness and sadness. Unfortunately, when two people such as us, discuss spiritual or intellectual subjects in a third language, there are many possibilities of misunderstanding. And even as I say these things, I wonder whether perhaps I misunderstand you, and were I capable of reading your words in your own language, might I not agree. But sincerity, as I understand it, is honesty and directness in communication. And as we know people, one might achieve great heights in one area of life, and still be wanting in another. Moreover, a wise and righteous man continues to learn from all who wish to teach him, and so being unswayed by others is not such a great attribute. For at any given moment, a stranger might show us some wisdom that we haven’t realized before. And though no learned or pious man wishes to be the slave of his emotions, the emotions themselves can often add to the appreciation of the world around us, and to a recognition of god, and can be an influence for good and an inspiration.

    With my best wishes to you, Shimon

    1. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and giving your saner and plausible advice on my write up. Every word in your comments is gem of a advice. I shall endeavor to make your saner comments applicable in my write ups.

      In my write ups, I try to put words and phrases which has lesson for the people to follow and also request people like you to kindly give your comments so that these could be made applicable in my write ups next. I sharpen my writing skill through comments and not through appreciation.

      I write explanatory notes so that even small children could follow and then poem on the subject. I had received some good responses for the same.

      Thanks a lot for your comments.

      With kind regards,

      Harbans

  6. Shimon Sir,

    Kindly do visit again for I get motivation / inspiration from the add ups from personages like you who can improve our style for our good.

  7. It only relates to a fraction of what your poem entails, but I remember reading a quote when I was a bit younger. It went something like this…

    “When you lie to someone, you become their slave. For from that moment on you must live a another false life for the sake of the lie.”

    Its something that has stuck with me. Truth can seem hard at times, but in reality it is the easiest path through life, at least in my eyes.

  8. Please accept my sincerest thanks for visiting my blog and commenting.

    The truth you have quoted is outstanding. If this is followed in our daily lives most of our worries and resentments will evoporate in thin air:

    “When you lie to someone, you become their slave. For from that moment on you must live a another false life for the sake of the lie.”

    Kindly visit again.
