‘A 24-year old boy was looking out through a train’s window. All of a sudden out of sheer joy, he shouted, ‘Dad, dad, look, the trees are going behind; they are moving very fast. I am enjoying all this so much’, his dad simply stared at him with so much joyfulness and smiled, ‘Yes my son.’ A young couple seated nearby looked at the 24-year old and thought to themselves, he’s so grown up but look at him, so childish, he must have a mental disorder for his father not to be bothered at this stupid behavior. Suddenly, the young man exclaimed in awe once again; ‘Dad, look, the clouds are running with us. I too want to go and catch and play with the clouds.’

The couple could not resist and interrupted them and said to the old man, ‘Sir, why don’t you take your son to a good doctor may be to a psychiatrist?’ The old man smiled and said to them, ‘I just did. We are just coming from a doctor but not a psychiatrist; we have just been discharged from the hospital. You see, My son was blind by birth. He just got his eyesight today for the very first time. He insisted me to take him for a ride in a train as he loved seeing the nature and its scenic beauty which he could not all these years. His behavior may seem stupid and madness to you, but it’s more than a miracle to me. I as his father am feeling full of elation and joy to see my son seeing the wonders of our world after so many years.’ 

The young couple just sat down there, dumbfounded, completely lost for words. With a mixture of tears and shame in their eyes they apologized profoundly.

Everybody on earth has a story of their own to tell; let us not jump to any conclusions or sit in judgement about anyone’s private life. No one in their wildest dreams know where they are coming from or what they have to deal with. The truth behind their story might surprise you. Take it easy with others, even if you have a perfect life. Life is like a roller-coaster. Let us keep working towards the good of all. Have faith and hope and with love all will be overcome. Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know. Everything is Magical when you see it with your Beautiful and Caring Heart.

Release Me

Release me from the rusty chains
my neck is scarred for life
I am in acute pain
am screaming my lungs out
I cannot move an inch
The devil has made me his slave
I have no where to escape
but dream of being released
running quickly towards the door
and flying with the birds to freer skies
flowing with the wonderful waves
dancing on the delicate lotus petals
drifting with the cool winds
fresh fragrant flowers to smell
hiding my face in their perfumes
sitting high on rainbows edge
a happy smile on my lovely face
my heart is at peace and comfort
i am no more fearful or worried
enjoying this beautiful moment of bliss
in the arms of my father
who I have always missed

When you open your Wings to fly……….

Pin on Motivational Quotes

When you open your wings to fly

You must fly straight like the swan

Do not flit from tree to tree

Like the sweet sparrow

Or many things will distract you on the way

And the journey is long and tedious

We are all parts of the Ocean

We are as it were, the drops

The waves, the streams, the rivers

All part and parcel of the Shoreless Ocean

Let us all Remember Him

In every little thing that we do

Keep him constantly present within us

And fly straight into His embrace

He is waiting with open arms

A happy smile on his sparkling face

A twinkle in his alluring eyes

“Come my child”, He says

“In my abode called LOVE”

Love is actually a name for “Care”

Taking care is "Love". T... | Quotes & Writings by Archana Karthikeyan |  YourQuote

Love is when you send a small message to your friends to make them smile.

Love is when you send flowers to a friend who has fallen sick to cheer them up.

Love is when you take time out for the little things that brings joyfulness and merriment along the way.

Love is hugging your sweet little children and nurturing them with love and care.

Love is when someone cares enough for you sending warm greetings, little gifts that you like and making your dimple cheeks blush like fresh dewdrops.

Love is when a young boy sends a kiss that travels in the blues skies to his lover who is far away and plants right on her lips.

Love is laughing at silly jokes, hugging your cute little puppy. Most of your day sails smoothly by.

Love is sharing and caring for each other, giving and receiving and seeing happiness all around.

REAL HAPPINESS LIES IN MAKING OTHERS HAPPY…………

This Too Shall Pass……..

Pin by Shell G on Qoutes | Buddhism quote, Buddha quotes inspirational,  Wisdom quotes

There was a King and one day he called a gathering in his courtroom and said to his court sages: “I have a ring with one of the finest diamonds in the world and I want to hide a message under the stone which can be useful in times of despair.  I will give this ring to my heirs and I want it to serve them faithfully.  Come up with a message to be inscribed under the diamond.  It must be short to fit on the ring.”

The sages knew how to write treatise upon treatise but could not express themselves in one short sentence.  The king then complained about the failure of his venture to a faithful old servant who raised him from infancy and was part of the family.  And the old man said to him: “I am not a sage; I am not educated too but I know of such a message.  Once, I served a visiting mystic whom your father invited and he passed me his message.  Just do not read it, put it under the stone inside the ring and read it only when there is no way out at all.”

The king listened to the old servant.  After some time, the enemies attacked the country and the king lost the war.  He fled on his horse and enemies pursued him.  He was alone, and they were many.  He drove to the end of the road.  There was a big cliff before him, if he fell there, that would be the end.  He could not go back, as the enemies were approaching.  He already heard the clatter of their horses’ hooves.  He had no way out.  He was in complete despair.

Then he remembered the ring.  He opened it and under the stone found an inscription of four words: “THIS TOO SHALL PASS.” After reading the message he felt that everything went quiet and all of a sudden, he felt at peace.  Apparently, the pursuers got lost and proceeded in the wrong direction.  Horses were no longer heard.  The king was filled with gratitude to the servant and the unknown mystic. He felt that Words were so powerful.  He closed the ring and hit the road. 

Once again, with courage and having faithful men he gathered his army and conquered back his state. On the day when he returned to the palace, they arranged a lavish welcoming for him, a feast for the whole country.   The king too was very happy and proud. He said to himself, “Now I am the winner.  People are celebrating my return; I am not in despair anymore.”  The old servant then came up to him and softly said: “Even this moment will pass.  Look at the message again. It works not only in bad times but also in good.”  The king opened the ring and read: “THIS TOO SHALL PASS.”

Again, he felt silence falling over him.  Although he was in the midst of a noisy dancing crowd.  Feelings of pride and entitlement disappeared. He understood the profound wisdom of the message.  And then the old servant said: “Do you remember everything that happened to you? Nothing is permanent. Feelings do not last. As night changes day, moments of joy and despair replace one another.  Accept them as the nature of things, as part and parcel of life.

Remember to love everything and everyone you come in contact, with compassion and empathy.  Be a humble and a noble Human Being.  Life is a fleeting shadow. We are not taking anything with us. We come empty handed and we go empty handed. Everything comes and goes in the wink of an eye. “THIS TOO SHALL PASS” Enjoy what life has to offer you with love, joy and kindness. Beauty and abundance will once again blossom and flourish.

Rain is here to Stay…….

When it rains... and you don't get wet!

It’s that time of the year

When rains bring forth

A song, a sonata in every beautiful heart

A twinky smile on pinky lips

Cool breeze a welcome change

From the prickly grumpy heat

Of the scorching rays of the sun

Thundering Clouds are happy and gay

Pouring heavy rains on parched Earth

Little kids playing in the puddles

Splashing to heavens glory

A time to enjoy, a time to let go

Getting wet a feeling of joyous surrender

Colourful umbrellas out in the open

Gumboots and raincoats doing the show

One wishes to serenade with the birds

Singing sweet songs of melodies

Lush green trees swaying to a rhythm

Radiance and abundance everywhere

Love is surely in the air

Cause rain is here to stay………..

His Hand is bigger than Yours……….

A little boy and his father visited the country store in their little village for some purchases and groceries.  Upon leaving the store, the owner of the store very kindly offered the little boy some free assorted sweets and candies that were kept in jars near the billing counter. “Come my dear child, get a handful of sweets that you like, there are so many with their colourful wrappings and you will love eating them.” he said lovingly to the boy.

The boy was a little shy and just stood there looking up at his father not knowing what to do. The owner once again repeated to the boy, “Son do not feel shy get a handful of sweets and candies, they are completely free, I am wanting to give them to you. Come grab some.”  But the boy did not move nor budge from the place, continuing to look up in the face of his father. 

Finally, the father reached into the candy jar and got a handful of sweets and candies and gave it to his son who happily took them and was so excited to eat all. The father then said his thank you to the owner and as they walked back home, the father stopped and asked his son, “Why did you not grab a handful of the free candy or sweets that you liked and why were you so shy when the store owner was so kindly giving you from his hand.” The boy with a beautiful big smile looked into the face of his father lovingly and said, “BECAUSE, FATHER I KNOW THAT YOUR HAND IS ALWAYS BIGGER THAN MINE.

So, whatever your needs are for now, future or tomorrow, kindly let us all place them in our FATHER’S HAND, because HIS HAND IS ALWAYS BIGGER THAN YOURS. HE KNOWS WHAT’S BEST FOR US. WE NEED TO TRUST HIM AND HAVE UTMOST FAITH IN WHATEVER HE HAS IN STORE FOR EACH ONE OF US. HE WILL NEVER EVER FAIL US. 

If we could all see the world through the eyes of our DIVINE FATHER, we would see the magic in everything that life has given us. Only the love in our hearts will remain forever. In the middle of every difficulty lies great opportunities. His love for us is bigger than our mistakes. Enjoy every moment of life.

Take A Moment………..

Never wait for a perfect moment; just take a moment and make it ...

Take a Moment

Pause for a second

Breathe in the NOW

Appreciate the beauty all around you

Relax and de-stress yourself

Sleep in a peaceful abandon

Inhale the freshness of air

Rest your weary nimble feet

Beneath the maple leaves

Leave your brush strokes aside

Let your mind feel the painting

That begins to move in your heart

Dance in the blossoming flowers

Listen to the call of birds

Or the river’s quiet song

And feel the water’s soft allure

Express your gratitude

Take a moment’s pause

Find delight in the mountain song……………..

When to be Silent…….

Know When to be Silent - Wildflowers & Tumbleweeds

Be silent, when you don’t have all the facts about anyone you come across. Why hurt someone and ruin them for their entire life.

Be silent, if you can’t say it without screaming and being rude. The other person will not want to listen to you. In the end it will hurt you only.

Be silent, if your words convey the wrong impression. Sometimes people think you are giving them wrong advice even if you are not.

Be silent, in the heat of anger and jealousy. If both talk in a fit of anger than nothing will work. The situation will become more worse than before.

Be silent, if your words could damage a friendship that had lasted for many years. Just let it go and cool down as things will work out in the end.

Be silent, if you would be ashamed of your words later on. Calm down, go and reflect on your words or go for a long walk with beauty surrounding everywhere.

Be silent, when it is time to listen to someone.  Do not interrupt in between but give your complete attention to what the other person has to say. Once he completes his talk then you can say what you need to.

A meaningful silence is always better than meaningless words. Let go of things that are not wanted in life and embrace the Soul’s silence.

One of the best lessons you can learn in life is mastering how to remain calm and composed and in silence the fragrances of flowers spreads in the direction of the wind that sits still in her heart’s silence…………….
