A Sleepless Self-Giver: Dedicated to Hub Pages by Manatita
I feel inspired and empowered to write something about Hub Pages, by the exquisite ease and charming style in which Ms Dora has done so. I have suggested to her that she deserves some accolades from Hub Pages, but I doubt very much that this motivates her in her loving quest to pay homage to such a significant sister/brother/friend relationship. Take note, Hub Pages, for as well as being an excellent writer, this lady displays a remarkable and beautiful soul.
So who is Hub Pages? They are – according to me – sleepless self-givers and Victory-Banner-Carriers, from various walks of life, which have come together to serve humanity, in myriad fields of endeavour.
A Sleepless Self-giver 1
What is a sleepless self-giver?
“A sleepless self-giver, says the remarkable peace dreamer Sri Chinmoy, ‘is another name for God’s Victory-banner.
A sleepless self-giver is God’s Victory-banner carrier. A sleepless self-giver is God’s Dream-fulfiller.”
What has Hub Pages been doing? Well, they have been God’s Victory-banner; His message-carrier, and His Dream-fulfiller for many years. They do so, by allowing an unconditional platform via Hub Pages, so that Hubber’s: writers, journalists and poets, can showcase their talent to a worldwide audience. Many a time I have benefited from Hub Pages, either through receiving inspiration or giving inspiration. This I know because of Hub Pages database of friendly people, who constantly read and supply info to the feedback column.

Hub Pages work ceaselessly day and night to not only offer quality work, but are constantly – in the spirit of self-transcendence – seeking new and innovative ways, to go beyond themselves. This they do with the true spirit of unconditional offering. They charge me nothing, and in my view, show great patience with those who would spoil an otherwise beautiful Hub. I commend them for their spirit of excellence, tolerance, fair play and spirit of discernment.
Their versatility is second to none, and this enables me to gain knowledge in the field of health, nutrition, science and politics among many others, not to mention the ever-increasing specialist subjects, from which so many of us are uplifted in our lives. I feel that Hub Pages have lived and are living up to the lofty message of this 21st Century’s global man as described beneath thus:
“When you feel that what you gain from your aspiration is for humanity at large, then your heart becomes wide and receptive” –Sri Chinmoy.
I am in the UK, but I talk to or write to people in India, America, Australia and many other places, all because Hub Pages have made this possible through their fan base, and easily read Hubs. This enables me to reach others within minutes if not seconds sometimes.

Music can help us to be self-giving
Self-giving expands the Heart
Are you a selfless giver?
When does Hub Pages do all this? When do they not? I ask. I tend to visit them in the mornings, evenings and sometimes at odd times at nights. This is so invaluable in the modern world in which one lives. They are non-complaining, good friends/neighbours that I can talk to, and are always available.
How do they do this? Well, I have my favourite. While I like writing Hubs in prose and poetry, I also visit the ‘hot questions’ or ‘forums’ which they provide, as they sometimes give me an excellent opportunity to express myself. I can also engage in healthy dialogue as and when the need arises, something which for most of us is satisfying to know.
Hub Pages grants me an audience which is large and varied, not only in culture but in terms of interests. I particularly enjoy the fields of religion, philosophy and spirituality, as well as Yoga, and it is in these areas, that I write most of my Hubs.
Why do Hub Pages do this? I have no idea of how finance works, but I suspect that for them it is rewarding in that sense also. This is only natural. Still, it is always nice to know that one is admired and appreciated, and that a great bunch of people are always there, trying to inspire and to improve the lives of others. This is what my favourite visionary has to say about sleepless self-givers:
"Although there have been few,
Very few in number,
Mother-earth is extremely happy
To have such sleepless self-givers.
Give; you become. Give; you are.
Do not give; you are lost,
Do not give; you are dead.
Give and give and give
Only to the Supreme in humanity.” – Sri Chinmoy.
Hub Pages, you avail yourselves for me and numerous others. You are my ceaseless and selfless day and night crew. For you I am full of admiration. - Manatita, 23rd May, 2014.
