Praise May not be true, but sometimes criticism may be true, But we still long Praise. Accept Criticism as gleefully as praise
“Our intention creates our reality.” – Wayne Dyer

Freedom from the pleasure is the real pleasure. Pain does not bind you; it is the pleasure that binds you. And the bondage is painful. If you are bound, you are not bound by misery, you are bound by your craving, your pleasure.
One who is equal to friends and enemies, who is equipoised in honor and dishonor, heat and cold, happiness and distress, fame and infamy, who is always free from contaminating association, always silent and satisfied with anything, who doesn’t care for anyresidence, who is fixed in knowledge and who is engaged in devotional service — such a person is very dear to Me. (12.18-19)
Life is a movie projector and you are its operator. Till the projection is well, the audiences praise you. Any breaks in the film invite strong criticism.
Every pleasure has been so momentary, has left your hand empty, depleted, drained. And every pleasure has brought you more depression, sorrow, pulled you down. But yet there is a hope of some pleasure, some unknown, unseen pleasure. Dreaming of a pleasure that makes you weak, that holds you back.
Gain and loss, birth and death are in the hands of God.
