-Empty pockets teach millions of things in life.  But full pockets spoil us in million ways.

-Trust is like a sticker. Once it is removed, it may stick again, but not as strong as it holds when you first applied.

-Never win people with arguments. Rather defeat them with your smile. Because people who always wish to argue with you, cannot bear your silence.

-When Storms come your way; just remember you know the Master of the Wind. He blows the storms away to a far off land. Give yourself in His Hands.

-When Sickness finds you any way, just remind yourself you know the Greatest Physician who will not allow you to be very sick and ailing. He knows best.

-When your Heart gets broken and the love of your life leaves you and walks out of your life, just say to yourself, I know the Potter who knows how to carve me back to my original self.

-Ego is the only requirement to destroy a relationship. Be a bigger person. Skip the ‘E’ and let it GO.

-Everything is valuable only at two times in our lives, before getting it and after losing it.

-Make peace with your past, so it will not disturb your present. What other people think of you is none of your business.

Life does not always introduce you to the people you WANT to meet. Sometimes, Life puts you in touch with the people you NEED to meet to Help You, to Hurt You, to Guide You, to Leave You, to Love You and to gradually Strengthen You into the Person You Were Meant to become. Life is just like painting. Draw the lines with Hope. Erase the errors with Tolerance, Dip the brush with lots of Patience and color it with Love.

Evolve…………..

 

Image result for images of evolve into a beautiful dewdrop

Evolve into a raindrop

Falling as a tiny whisper

Like a little dewdrop

In the early morning sun

Of lotus petals in the lake

Of stars twinkling in the night

 

Evolve into a dancer

Dancing to the beat of flames

Of a thousand songs

With tulips and daffodils

And the whistling winds

In tulles of vision and dainty feet

 

Evolve into a beautiful being

Showering incessant blessings

Onto hearts full of love

Luminous and radiant as ever

Falling like drop of pearls

As sunshine flows into the trees………………..

She jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon come out of the operating room. She said: ‘How is my little boy? Is he going to be all right? When can I see him?’  The surgeon said, ‘I’m sorry. We did all we could, but your boy did not make it.’  Sally said, ‘Why do little children get cancer? Does not God care anymore? Where were you, God, when my son needed you?’  The surgeon asked, ‘Would you like some time alone with your son? One of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he’s transported to the university.’

Sally asked the nurse to stay with her while she said goodbye to my son.  She ran her fingers lovingly through his thick red curly hair.  ‘Would you like a lock of his hair?’ the nurse asked. Sally nodded yes. The nurse cut a lock of the boy’s hair, put it in a plastic bag and handed it to Sally. The mother said, ‘It was Jimmy’s idea to donate his body to the University for Study.  He said it might help somebody else. ‘I said no at first, but Jimmy said, ‘Mom, I won’t be using it after I die.  Maybe it will help some other little boy spend one more day with his Mom.’ She went on, ‘My Jimmy had a heart of gold.  Always thinking of someone else. Always wanting to help others if he could.’

The drive home was difficult.  It was even harder to enter the empty house. She carried Jimmy’s belongings, and the plastic bag with the lock of his hair to her son’s room. She started placing the model cars and other personal things back in his room exactly where he had always kept them.  She lay down across his bed and, hugging his pillow, cried herself to sleep.  It was around midnight when Sally awoke.  Lying beside her on the bed was a folded letter.

The letter said: ‘Dear Mom, I know you are going to miss me; but do not think that I will ever forget you, or stop loving you, just because I am not around to say ‘I Love You’.  I will always love you, Mom, even more with each day. Someday we will see each other again.  Until then, if you want to adopt a little boy so you will not be so lonely, that is completely okay with me.  He can have my room and old stuff to play with.  Do not be sad thinking about me.  This really is a neat and lovely place. Grandma and Grandpa met me as soon as I got here and showed me around and the angels are so cool.  I love to watch them fly. And, you what? Jesus does not look like any of his pictures.  Yet, when I saw Him, I knew it was Him.  Jesus himself took me to see GOD, and guess what, Mom? I got to sit on God’s knee and talk to Him, like I was somebody important.  That’s when I told Him that I wanted to write you a letter, to tell you good bye and everything. 

Well, you know what Mom? God handed me some paper and His own personal pen to write you this letter and one of His angels will drop this letter off to you. God said for me to give you the answer to one of the questions you asked Him, ‘Where was He when I needed Him?’ God said He was in the same place with me, as when His son Jesus was on the cross.  He was right there, as He always is with all His children.

Oh, by the way, Mom, no one else can see what I have written except you. To everyone else this is just a blank piece of paper.  Isn’t that cool? I have to give God His pen back now He needs it to write some more names in the Book of Life. Tonight I get to sit at the table with Jesus for supper.  I’m sure the food will be great. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you.  I do not hurt anymore and the cancer is all gone. I am glad because I could not stand that pain anymore and God could not stand to see me hurt so much, either. That’s when He sent The Angel of Mercy to come get me. The Angel said I was a Special Delivery.  How about that?  Signed with Love from God, Jesus and Me.

When you are down to nothing and are totally helpless, God is up to something…………

—–This is a Killer Joke: A man was leaving a café, when he noticed an unusual funeral. A funeral coffin was followed by a second one. Behind the second coffin was a solitary man walking with His Black Dog. Behind him was a queue of 200 men walking in a straight line.

The man could not stand his curiosity. He approached the man who was walking with the dog, ‘Sorry to disturb you, but I have never seen a funeral like this with so many men walking in a straight line. Whose funeral is it????’ He replied, ‘the first coffin is of my WIFE.’ ‘What happened to her???’ ‘My dog attacked and killed her. ‘The second coffin’, the man asked, completely puzzled.

The man with the dog said, ‘It’s my MOTHER IN LAW, she was trying to help my wife when the dog attacked and killed her too. A silent moment passed and then the man asked can I borrow the dog??????? And he replied, ‘GET IN THE LINE.’

—–Husband and wife both went for an interview in a big Company.  In the evening when they came home, the wife asked her husband:

Wife: ‘How was your interview today darling?’  

Husband: ‘I have been rejected.’ 

Wife: ‘Why. What happened?’ 

Husband: ‘Because the first button of my shirt was open.’  

Wife: ‘Strange!!! I have been selected for the same reason.’

—–A classic example of effective communication in an Indian household. An old man was on the operating table awaiting a complicated heart surgery on him and he insisted that his daughter-in-law, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation. As he was about to get the anesthesia, he spoke to his daughter-in-law.

‘Yes, Dad, what is it?’ ‘Don’t be nervous dear. Do your best and just remember, if something happens to me, your mother-in-law will come and live with you.’ The surgery was a great success.

—–Childbirth at the age of 65With all the new technology regarding fertility recently, a 65-year-old friend of mine was able to give birth. When she was discharged from the hospital and went home, I went to visit her. ‘May I see the new baby?’ I asked. ‘Not yet’ She said I will make coffee and we can sit and chat for a while first.’ Thirty minutes had passed, and I asked, ‘May I see the new baby now?’ ‘No not yet,’ She said.

After another few minutes had elapsed, I asked again the same question and she replied the same answer and this went for quite some time.  Growing very impatient, I again asked in a frantic voice, ‘Well, when can I see the baby?’ ‘WHEN HE CRIES!’ she told me. ‘WHEN HE CRIES?’ I demanded. ‘Why do I have to wait until he CRIES?’ ‘BECAUSE I FORGOT WHERE I PUT HIM, O.K.?!!!!

1. Thank the Selector
2. Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day.
3. Select 3 bloggers to take part in “3.2.1 Quote Me!”

My two quotes for today on Hope are: 

RUMI, THE SPIRITUAL POET & MASTER:  ‘You and I have spoken all these words for lifetimes, but for the way we have to go, words are no preparation. I have one small drop of knowing my Soul, let it completely dissolve in your Ocean. Be like a melting snow and wash yourself of yourself.’

From these motivational words Rumi is saying ‘Who am I Who is seeking? I am the same as He. His essence speaks through Me. The desire to know My Soul will end all other desires. Hope that once you get to know this knowledge you will completely dissolve in the Oneness of the Ocean. We are but beautiful stars wrapped in a soft skin. The Light that You are Seeking has always been Within You. Do not search for it Outside.’

PAULO COELHO: ‘Close some doors, not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead you somewhere. Never search your happiness in others, it will make you feel alone.’

From these profound words, Paulo is saying: ‘Have utmost Hope and faith and learn to Get away from negative people who will push you further down. Never beg for a relationship. Be brave to accept the one who really wants to be with you and reject the one who just pretends to be with you. Search for happiness in yourself. You will be happy even if you are alone. Life is like a cotton, do not make it heavier by dipping it in the water of sorrow but make it lighter by blowing it in the air like a soft balloon.’ 

As Amira has so wonderfully written “Keep your hope flame alive and pass on the torch of HOPE to others. I would like to nominate three bloggers who would love to take up this challenge of HOPE:

Give While You Are Still Living…………

Image result for images of give

A rich Goan landlord once asked his Parish Priest: ‘Why does everybody call me stingy when everyone knows that when I die I will leave everything I have to this church?’

The priest answered to the rich landlord. Let me tell you a simple story then you will understand what it is to give when we are living: “There was once a pig and a cow in this village. The pig was very unpopular and the cow was loved by all in the village. This puzzled the pig very much and one day he said to the cow: ‘People speak warmly of your good nature and your helpful attitude. They think you are very generous because each day you give them milk, butter and cheese. But what about me? I too give them everything I have. I give them the famous Goa sausages, bacon, salami and ham. I also provide ingredients for mouth-watering sorpotel. Yet no one likes me. They think I am from the gutters and feel so disgusted seeing me, no one comes and pets me, but you receive all their love and they pet you and pray to you.  They treat you as their Mother. Pray, tell me why is that?”

The priest then continued further: ‘Do you know what the cow answered,’ ‘No’ said the rich man. ‘Please tell me Sir.’ The Cow said very kindly to the pig: ‘Perhaps it is because I give generously without thinking what is in it for me while I am still living!!! That is the difference between you and me’. And the pig understood it very profoundly.

The rich man’s vision opened and he understood the real meaning behind the story. He was very grateful to the Priest and thought that it is always nice to be giving to the needy who really deserve it when you are alive like a Cow then to be not giving and being stingy and wait to give after your death like a Pig. He felt very happy and it gave him a new vision in life.

We have come with empty hands and take nothing with us. Life is the most benevolent teacher; it puts you where your growth lies. OPEN YOUR HANDS AS WIDE AS YOU CAN AND LEARN TO SERVE OTHERS WHO ARE NOT AS FORTUNATE AS US. TAKE ONLY WHAT YOU NEED, THE REST IS ONLY A BURDEN. REAL HAPPINESS LIES IN MAKING OTHERS HAPPY. 

Stay fit, Look fabulous and Love Yourself Unconditionally.

If there’s a song in your Heart

Sing it like a rush of floral colors

If there’s love in your Soul

Let the drums beat joyfully

If there are endless dreams

Chase them upon the winds

If there’s a Dance in your step

Let yourself move gracefully

If there are Currents in the Sea

Sail away with the limitless light

If there are Birds calling you

Soar with them to freer skies

If there are Flowers beckoning, you

Join them in their splendor

Dive into the Ocean of Bliss

Rejoice in Your beautiful Essence

And be with this Real You……………
