Magnification Of The Self

“Every man who knows how to read has it in his power to magnify himself, to multiply the ways in which he exists, to make his life full, significant and interesting,” says Aldous Huxley.


This is true, practical wisdom. A person, especially a youngster, struggling to find a place in the world, often overlooks the sagacity of such words. He chases imaginary rainbows and comes to deep disappointments. According to me, a magnificent person is –

One whose object of pursuit is not tainted by anger, pleasure, arrogance, abashment, ego and over-estimation of one-self, is known as a wise person.

One whose actions, condulations and innermost thoughts are not known to anybody until the work is done.

One whose work is not stopped by the impediments like the heat and cold, fear and courage, poverty and wealth.

A person who wishes and does only such good action according to one’s might without underestimating anything, such discriminating soul.

One who hears about a subject attentively and calmly, having a quick grasping power, knowingly performs his duty for the attainment of object of pursuit, one who never interferes in other’s affairs unless invited to do so.

One who craves not for unattainable worldly things, one who weeps not for lost things, one who is not afraid during the difficulties.

A person who decides first and then acts, once begun stops not in the middle, one who wastes not the precious time, and hold the mind under control.

One whose knowledge follows the intellect and one whose intelligence follows wisdom.

One who is not egoistic even though is endowed with wealth, wisdom and prosperity.

If we manage to imbibe even half of these, we’ll indeed be on a greater path of self-discovery and of becoming better human beings, thus discovering life with all the good that it possesses and facing the hardships head-on as they come! πŸ™‚

Love and Peace to all ❀

  1. True, if we are able to imbibe even half of those things we will know our way through. Although, it is not easy to imbibe all of them on our own it is our loved ones who can help to bring about a change in us πŸ™‚
    Our loved ones know us as well as we know them, together we can embark upon the path of greatness ❀

  2. What a great post I find here!
    I dared to go looking for her;
    Not sure to be welcomed;
    But it’s hard to forget someone
    Who opened the door for me;
    Built my confidence with her likes;
    And I began the journey
    Which now takes me
    Across the globe;
    I took my courage to go for her.
    Now, I wait to see how it works.

  3. Hi. Thank you for enjoying my Way Back in Time blog. And it’s good to be different but not in a way that doesn’t lead to anything. Take care.
