Life is so Short…………

Image result for IMAGES OF LIFE IS SHORT

We spend so much time sweating the small stuff; worrying; complaining, gossiping, comparing, wishing, wanting and waiting for something bigger and better instead of focusing on all the simple blessings that surround us every day. 

We are all hear to heal, not harm. We are here to love, not hate. We are here to create, not destroy.

Life is so fragile and all it takes is a single moment to change everything you take for granted.

Focus on what’s important in your life and be grateful for everything. Enjoy your life to its ultimate. She knows what she is doing.

Never stop learning, because life never stops teaching. Believe in yourself. You are the best creation of God.

Faith is seeing light with your heart when all your eyes see is darkness. You are always blessed. Have confidence. Live your life and leave no regrets. 

Sometimes I Just Look Up, Smile and Say, ‘I know that was you God! Thank You for Everything’. Gratitude helps you fall IN LOVE with the LIFE you already have.

In the end LIFE says: “If I could give you any Gift. I’d give you LOVE & LAUGHTER, A PEACEFUL HEART, A SPECIAL DREAM & JOY FOREVER AGAIN.”

Each Gives What He Has…………

Back in the days when Germany was divided, a huge wall separated East and West Berlin.  One day, some people in East Berlin took a truck load of garbage and dumped it on the West Berlin side. There was a great deal of animosity between the people of Germany. 

The people of West Berlin could have done the same thing and given them tooth for tooth and created more animosity between two blocks which was part of the main Germany itself.  They did not think like East Berlin.  Instead they took a truck load of canned goods, bread, milk and other provisions which would be required by the people of East Berlin.  They wanted to lend a hand of giving help and kindness.  They took all the stuff out from their truck and neatly stacked it on the East Berlin side.

On top of this stack they placed the sign:

‘EACH GIVES WHAT HE HAS’

How very true and words of perfection.  You can only give what you have.  If you think very stingily and selfishly about yourself you will give it very miserly and not want to share with the society and if you think that the Lord has been so thankful to you and he has given you the best, why not share it with others and make others happy and joyful.

What do you have inside of you? Is it hate or love, violence or peace, death or life, capacity to build or capacity to destroy? What have you acquired over the years? Would you like to give back and lead a peaceful life as no one has come to live it? All have to one day go away and leave everything here as there is nothing to take with us.  Come empty handed go empty handed.

EACH GIVES WHAT HE HAS.  The waters of a river are for the use of the populace.  The containers the people bring to fill with water are large or small according to their needs. So give generously and do not bother about anything.  All are taken care of, none are excluded.

I Want to Sing Like the Birds……….

Image result for images of i want to sing like the birds

I want to sing like the birds

That sing of the beauty

As they soar to freer skies

Not worrying about anything

Who hears me or what they’ll think

I want to sing like the birds

Script my imaginative dreams

Write poetic melodies in leas of greens

Surrounded by flowers fragrances

Be silent and listening to their song

I want to sing like the birds

Open my hands wide and free

To be held by the freshness of the wind

Truly love myself, choose the happiness door

And opening the love window

I want to sing like the birds

Appreciate every beautiful moment

Run wild with the puppies and mittens

Joyfully Hug the tall Poplar trees

Whistling along with the lovely birds

Technology & its side-effects……….

-When the Television set came to my house, I forgot how to read books. I kept them aside and only concentrated on TV, the Idiot-box.

When the car came to my doorstep, I forget how to walk and simply went everywhere by car not allowing my legs to walk and enjoy the nature.

When I got the mobile in my hand, I forgot how to write letters nor have a decent dialogue or conversation. Became rude and irritable with friends and family. I only kept on seeing my mobile from morning to dusk.

When computer came to my house, I forgot spellings because the computer did everything for me. The typewriters became obsolete.

When the AC came to my house, I stopped going under the tree for a cool breeze and started the artificial breeze which was so stifling after sometime.

When I stayed in the city, I forgot the smell of mud of the life in the village which was so good for my breath and well-being. The freshness in the air disappeared leaving me breathless and stressful.

With the smell of perfume, I forgot the fragrance of fresh flowers that adds fresh perfumes in the house and everywhere.

With the coming of fast food restaurants, I forgot to cook traditional cuisines because everyone wanted to simply eat the food which was not good for overall health but they still did.

Today in this era, we are always running and running around at a fast speed. New technology has swept us from our feet and today we want quick results. In the olden days when technology had not taken us by storm we were so grounded on the Earth.

We have stopped talking, only we are conversing with messages in a virtual world but have completely forgotten how to stop and reflect, how to be at peace with our Being and enjoy relationships be it family, friends or the environment.  These are the side effects of modern technology and it has made a Human Man into a Human Robot.

The Beauty of Human Relations…………

A bus full of passengers was travelling along a stretch of road, when suddenly the weather changed and there was a huge downpour and lightening all around.  They could see that the lightening would appear to come towards the bus and then go elsewhere.  After 2 or 3 horrible instances of being saved from lightening, the driver stopped the bus about fifty feet away from a tree and said to all the passengers, “We have somebody in the bus whose death is a certainty today. Because of that person everybody else will also get killed today.  Now listen carefully what I am saying” and he further said, “I want each person to come out of the bus one by one and touch the tree trunk and come back.  Whomsoever death is certain will get caught up by the lightening and will die and everybody else will be saved.”

Nobody was willing to go and risk their lives so they had to force the first person to go and touch the tree and come back. He reluctantly got down from the bus and went and touched the tree. But he came back safe. This continued for rest of the passengers who were all relieved when they touched the tree and nothing happened. When the last passenger’s turn came, everybody looked at him with accusing eyes. That passenger was very afraid and reluctant since he was the only one left.  Everybody forced him to get down and go and touch the tree.  With a 100% fear of death in mind, the last passenger walked to the tree and touched it.

There was suddenly a huge sound of thunder and the lightening came down and hit the bus, yes the lightening hit the bus, and killed each and every passenger inside the bus.  It was because of the presence of this last passenger that, earlier, the entire bus was safe and the lightening could not strike the bus.

Life’s Learning from this is: At times, we try to take credit for our present achievements, but this could also be because of a person right next to us.  Look around you, probably someone is there around you, in the form of your parents, your spouse, your children, your siblings, your friends etc., who are saving you from harm. Think about it. You will surely find that Person. Take their help whenever you require. They are always there for you. The best gifts will never be found under a Christmas Tree, those gifts are your friends, family, children and th one you Love.

Beautiful lines written on Relationships: “Alone I can ‘Say’ but together we can ‘talk’.  Alone I can ‘Enjoy’ but together we can ‘Celebrate’. Alone I can ‘Smile’ but together we can ‘Laugh’. That’s the Beauty of Human Relations. We are nothing without each other. Stay connected at all times.

Walking in Nature’s Beauty…

Me and My Soul

Hand in hand

Over enthusiastic as ever

Happy and joyous

Best friends for eternity

We’re walking in nature’s beauty

Singing along with the cherry trees

Dancing a merry jig

From gladdened hearts

Letting the forests speak

Healing words of rhapsodies

Laughter echoing in the wilderness

Delighted beyond words are We!

Our feet sashaying on the ashen leaves

And cheerfully following us

Are the squirrels, the monkeys

Jumping from branches green

And the birds tweeting in between

Oh! What a joy to be here

Where Me and My Soul

Are filled in raptures of ecstasy……………

Moms will be Moms………
