Life is like making a warm cup of tea………

Life is like making a warm cup of tea

Boil your Ego over a slow flame   

Evaporate your Worries

Dilute your Sorrows

Filter your Mistakes

Stir your mental Hatreds

Throw your Jealousies to the wind

Stop focusing on the negatives

Instead get a taste of Happiness

By stirring Sugars of Love

Adding Milk of Cheerfulness

Mixing tea leaves of Hope

Being Grateful to Life

Beautiful moments of Serenity

Radiating abundance and beauty

Pouring hot tea of Blessings

In pretty cups of Chinaware

Smelling the rich Warmness

Within hearts full of Joy………………………

Simple Values that add meaning to Life……..

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.

  • People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
  • If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
  • If you find happiness, people may be jealous of you.  Be happy anyway.
  • The good you do today, may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
  • Hug the person who means a lot to you, though he may not reciprocate the same feelings.  Hug him anyway.
  • Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.  Give the best anyway.
  • Other people may hurt you, but Life itself is not against you. Live it beautifully anyway.
  • Care for your family who takes the best from you, though they may not show it.  Care for them anyway.
  • In the end, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.

Two Horses…………..

Just up the road from a home in Wisconsin is a stable owned by one Mr. Jeffrey with few horses.  From a distance, each horse looks like any other horse.  But if you stop your car, or are walking by, you will notice something quite amazing.  Looking into the eyes of one horse very closely will disclose that he is blind.  His owner has chosen not to have him put down, but has made a good home for him.  This alone is amazing.  If you stand nearby and listen, you will hear the sound of a bell. Looking around for the source of the sound, you will see that it comes from the smaller horse in the field.

Attached to the horse’s halter is a small bell. It lets the blind friend know where the other horse is, so he can follow him wherever he goes.  As you stand and watch these two friends, you will see that the horse with the bell is always checking on the blind horse. The blind horse too will listen for the bell and then slowly walk to where the other horse is, trusting that he will not be led astray.  When the horse with the bell returns to the shelter of the barn each evening, it stops occasionally and looks back, making sure that the blind friend is not too far behind to hear the bell. 

Like Mr. Jeffrey who is taking care of these two horses, God does not throw us away just because we are not perfect or because we have problems or challenges. He watches over us and even brings others into our lives to help us when we are in need. Sometimes we are the blind horse being guided by the little ringing bell of those who God places in our lives.  Other times we are the guiding horse, helping others to find their way. 

Good friends are like that. You may not always see them, but you know they are always there.  Please listen for my bell and I will listen for yours, and remember be Kinder than necessary. Everyone you meet is fighting some kind of a battle.  For we walk by Faith and not by Sight.  

Shades of Delightful Happiness……….

Happiness has varied shades of delight

Some glad, some merry, some fun

Some jovial, some romantic, some thrills

That brightens up my beautiful day

Gives joy to the pleasures of the senses

Flirting with magical nuances

Dancing in the tapestry of life

Singing a merry jingle or two

With a flight of twittering sparrows

Smiling on tulips pretty lips

Vibrant colours of spring tides

Happy in shades of symphony

Flirting around in oceans of loveliness

Waves that keep coming to the shores

I and my crazy being scampering

Carefree and full of delight

Clad in shades of delightful happiness

Changes the way I think of life

Happiness is within Me not outside

Took ages to unfurl this beautiful truth

No cares, no worries, no fears at all

I am in a state of a joyous happiness………………..

A Joyful Ride……..

‘If you allow the source of creation within you to find expression, joyful is the only way you can ever be’.

The Egyptian legend says that if one wants to enter heaven, at the point of entry, you will be asked two questions by an angel who is guarding the golden gates.  Unless you are one big ‘YES’ to these two questions, there is no entry for you. 

The first question is: ‘Have you known joy in your entire life?’ And the second question is: ‘Have you given joy to those around you?’ If your answer to these two simple questions is ‘YES’, I must tell you, you are already taken in by the angel from the golden gates and straight to heaven.

To become a joyful person is one of the best things that you can do for yourself and all around you, especially when anger, hatred, jealousy and intolerance are rearing their heads in not so pleasant ways, joyful human beings are the only safe insurance.  They give love and happiness to anyone they come across in their lives and there is a sense of delight and a feeling of excitement to be with such a jubilant being.  Only those who know the value of being pleasant will strive to create pleasantness everywhere.

May you know the fulfillment of making all that you touch and being with all whom you meet on your journey of life a joyful ride to paradise and rejoice and sing to your hearts content.

Finding Someone Special…………

Someone who is not afraid to admit that they miss you and would not hesitate to kiss and hug you in public places making you feel on top of the world.

Someone who knows that you are not perfect and is full of weaknesses and differences but yet treats you as if you are somebody special and makes you laugh tears of joy.

Someone who’s biggest fear is losing you, but who gives their heart and soul completely to you and loves you unconditionally. Your heart will beat more rapidly and you will smile for no reason at all.

Someone who says I love you to smithereens, means it and keeps it everlastingly, loving you till the end. Anyone can speak your name, but only that one special person can make it sound like music.

Someone who would not mind waking up with you in the morning, seeing your wrinkles, gray hair but still falls deeply in love with you all over again and rejoices in your embraces.

Someone who drinks with your sorrows, laughs it off, avoids the drama, takes chances with you and never has regrets as nothing lasts forever. 

In life you will realize that there is a role for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you, some will love you and some will teach you lessons that are of immense value to you.  But the ones that are important are the ones who bring out the best in you. 

Caring and sharing conveys the affection and love that someone special is there for you. They are the rare ones and remarkable people who remind you why it’s worth having a friend like you. They would never ever want to lose you at any cost. Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know. Love Life and love the ones around you. 

Be Jolly and Fancy Free…………

Be jolly and fancy free

Go for an early morning walk

Get some fresh air, try to smile like crazy

Say something kind and exchange pleasantries

To a safe-looking stranger, if one happens by

Always exercise your heart’s knowing

Along this beautiful path

Take your spouse or lover into your arms

The way you did when you first met

Let tenderness pour from your soft eyes

The way the Sun gazes warmly on the earth

Play a game of fun with small toddlers

Extend your warmth and hugs to a friend

Sing a few jingle songs to your pets and plants

And let them too get drunk and wild

In their wildest imaginations

Let’s cheer together with red wine and whiskey

To the whole mad World that has gone astray

We are all One Loving, Happy family

Let us all dance and sing along

Merry and funky sweet tunes

Radiating Hearts to joy and being Fancy Free……………

Trouble Tree…………

I once hired a plumber to help me repair an old farmhouse that I owned few years back though I was not staying there anymore. He already had a rough and tiresome day as his equipment that he brought along with him gave way. The car that he drove had a flat tire, his electric drill became faulty, his old car broke down, his tiffin that he had brought was spoilt and to top it, he lost his wallet and his bank kept calling him for loan repayments. In all these tensions and stress, he finished my repair work at my farmhouse. 

Since his car broke down, I drove him home. While I drove him home, he sat silently, but I could mark his agony and restlessness.  On arriving, he invited me in to meet his family. As we walked toward the front door, he paused at a small tree, touching the tips of the branches with both hands and closed his eyes. When the door opened, he was smiling and happy.  In seconds he underwent an amazing transformation. He hugged his two small children, gave his wife a kiss, laughed, and never even slightly made them feel the troubles that he had encountered that day.

I was astonished and curious. Seeing my inquisitive eyes, he said, ‘Oh that’s my Trouble Tree. My best friend. My trouble carrier for the night.’  He replied, ‘I know I cannot help having troubles on the job, but one thing’s for sure, those troubles don’t belong in the house with my wife and the children.  So I just hang them up on the tree every night when I come home and ask God to take care of them.  Then in the morning I pick them up again.’

He then smiled and shared a secret. He said, ‘when I come out in the morning to pick troubles up, there aren’t nearly as many as I remember hanging there the night before!!’  Life may be a burden of worries, but there is a way to keep our loved ones untouched from these worries. Time will heal every wound. Whoever is tensed today, look for a tree it will take away all your fears and worries and make you happy and contented.………….

Everyday is a Wonderful day…………

Everyday smiles matter the most

As everyday is a wonderful day

The sun shines every single day

Bright and charmingly

The birds sing sweet songs of melody

The present is a beautiful moment

The past is a memory

The future is a vast vacuum

Everything is going at its beautiful pace

Time is moving in its accuracy

Patiently going on at its proper time

Life is full of joy and abundance

Enjoy the good tidings that come your way

Hug the people you love almost everyday

Start your day on a warm footing

And give your life in God’s hand and see where

He takes you with him on a beautiful journey

Let us all Appreciate our day as much as we can……………

No Matter what……………

No matter how much effort you have to put in anything you are doing in life, you have to wait and watch: Be patient.

No matter what I do, I still end up falling head over heels in love with you: Be Loving.

No matter how much emptiness is there in your life, happiness will always follow like a fountain of bliss: Be Happy

No matter how light skinned you are, you will always need light in darkness. Light is like a beacon of hope: Take Caution.

No matter what people think of you, always keep singing your own beautiful song and be like a ruby shining bright: Be Cheerful

No matter how many mistakes in life we make, you will always need a Teacher who gives all his wisdom and never questions: Be Giving

No matter how much richness you have and own many cars of different makes, you will always walk to bed. Be contented, take life as tranquil and calm: Life is too short.

No matter how beautiful and handsome you are, just remember that even Baboons and Gorillas also attract tourists: Stop boasting.

What a life we live.  If you think it is your alarm clock that woke you up this morning, try putting it besides a dead body and you will realize that it is the grace of God that woke u up. If you are grateful to God, thank him at all times.…………………
