Ask Help from Others…………

One day, a young girl and her father were walking along a forest path.  At some point, they came across a large tree branch on the ground in front of them. The girl asked her father, ‘If I try, do you think I could move that branch?’  Her father replied, ‘I am sure you can, if you use all your strength.’ The girl tried her level best to lift or push the branch, but she was not strong enough and she could not move it at all.

She said with utter disappointment, ‘You were wrong, dad.  I cannot move it.’ ‘Try again, my dear child with all your strength,’ replied her father.  Again the girl tried hard to push the branch.  She struggled but it did not move nor budge even an inch and she was very dejected.  ‘Dad, I cannot do it,’ said the girl a little sad and forlorn. She started crying too. Finally, her father said in a very gentle tone, ‘Young lady, I simply advised you to use ‘all your strength. You did not ask for my help. I too was there walking with you.’

Remember our real strength lies not in independence, but in interdependence. The more you try to control and want to do things on your own it controls you. Free yourself and let things and people take their own natural course. No individual person has all the strengths, all the resources and all the stamina required for the complete blossoming of their vision.  To ask for help and support when we need it, is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of wisdom. Trust and have faith in others who do not keep scores but are always there ready and obliging to help at the slightest occasion.

Opportunities are never lost, they are always taken by the people who are ready to meet the challenges in life head on with the assistance and backing from others. It is not important to hold all the good cards in life, but it is important how well you play with the cards you hold.

We are all like beautiful flowers. Everyone is different and special, but TOGETHER we are great helpers who are kind and compassionate. Live a simple life, Enjoy life and Love each and everyone.

Rose Petals…………

Rose petals in scented shades

Let us scatter upon the landscape

And fill our cups with Red Wine

From crushed rosemary’s in blossom

 

The firmaments are in melody

Let us shatter them to pieces

With your Rose Petals in tune

And come up with a new design

 

We are like these flowers

Everyone of us is different

And oh! so special and beautiful

But together we are great

 

Wrap us in your satin petals

Let the wind make our senses

And smells a wonderful delight

Upon the misty emerald skies

 

Let us all drink from your Cup

And throw ourselves fully

To bask in your pink Roses

At our hearts content…………..

 

 

 

 

In the Journey of Life……………..

life-is-a-journey-1354191290_b

-In the journey of life, we pass through numerous pleasures and pain. There will be sunshine and rain and loss and gain, but we must always learn to smile again and again.

-None of us knows what might happen on this journey the next moment, yet still we go forward because we trust and because we have faith in the One who takes us by his Hand and showers his grace on all of us.

-If we have the spirit of understanding everything in a positive way, we will enjoy each and every minute on our journey whether it is pressure or pleasure.

-On this beautiful journey, worry is a total waste of time. It does not change anything but all it does is steal your joy and happiness and keeps you sad and busy doing nothing.

-Just for one day, love everything and see what happens. Once you become fearless, life becomes limitless. Keep moving on. It is okay to look back and think of fond memories but keep moving forward and the journey home is a cakewalk.

-Life in her journey is not about being rich, being popular, being highly educated or being perfectly faultless. It is all about being real, being humble, kind and being caring.

-Until you spread your wings wide, you will have no idea how far you can fly wherever you wish to. The journey of life is not about finding yourself, it is about creating yourself and unfurling your petals to know who you really are.

Destiny is not created by the SHOES we wear but by the STEPS we take. Let’s make THE JOURNEY OF OUR LIFE meaningful and memorable. May we give up things that are not important in our life and May our cups overflow with peace, love and pure awesomeness.

Life is Simple, Love it and live it in its essence and beauty and make the Journey as happy and enjoyable…………

Anger & Love have no Limits……….

I-Love-You-Dad.jpg

While a man was polishing his brand new Audi Car which he had just bought a few weeks back, his 6 years old son picked up a stone that was lying by and scratched lines on the side of the car.  In pure anger without even thinking for a moment what he was going to do, the man took the child’s hand and hit it many times; not realizing he was using a wrench. 

The child had to be taken immediately to the hospital as he was bleeding profusely. At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.  When the child saw his father, in his pure innocence and with painful eyes he asked, ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’ 

The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times and wept bitterly. He did not understand what had got into him and why had he taken this drastic step and ruined his son’s life in a fit of anger.  Being kind and in a loving manner if he had explained to his son that scratching on the car was not the right thing to do, the little boy would have immediately comprehended.

Devastated by his own actions, sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches; the child had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’. The next day the man committed suicide as he could not bear to see what he had done out of his anger to his son who loved him so much.

Anger and love have no limits; always choose the latter to have a beautiful, fulfilling life with your family and friends.  But the problem in today’s world is that, people are used in a very bad way and not respected for who they are and things which have no value or significance are loved to their glory.  Let us be careful to keep these thoughts in mind: ‘Things are to be used and when they are not wanted they have to be given up or thrown away but people are to be loved and cherished for the rest of our lives. Once you lose them they never come back. They are very precious’.

Always Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words, they become actions, watch you actions, they become habits, watch your habits they become character; watch your character; it becomes your destiny. Why don’t we change for the better?

Live a simple and contented life.  Love and be happy with One and All. 

Life is Beautiful………………

If there is a sweet song

In your heart’s mist

Sing it with gaiety

With a group of birds

 

If there is unconditional love

In your dancing steps

Let it flow as winged breaths

Gracefully upon the warm earth

 

If there are boundless dreams

In your mind’s horizon

Go on a rollercoaster ride

And chase them upon the stars

 

If there are dazzling smiles

Spread them with friends

Speak lovingly like little dewdrops

And be merry and gay

  

Life is a beautiful journey

Do what makes’ you happy

Let go of things you do not want

And she will take you by her hand

Upon the mystical doors of bliss……………

The Wise Professor…………

images.jpg

One day in a well-known University, a Sr. Psychology Professor started his class on a very serious topic. The moment he turned towards the blackboard, one of the students whistled. He turned, looked at the class and asked the whistler’s name. As usual and as expected no one answered. The Professor peacefully kept the pen in his pocket and picked up his bag. Saying that, the lecture ends here and that was enough for the day, he started moving towards the gate of the class. All the students were overjoyed to be free. Then he suddenly stopped and turned towards the class, kept his bag on the table and said, ‘I will tell you a story to utilize the remaining time’. Everyone became interested.

‘It so happened that yesterday night I tried hard to sleep, but it was miles away from my eyes, so I thought I would better get petrol in my car, which will save my time next morning and might induce sleep. After having my tank full, I started roaming in that area, enjoying the peace of a traffic free ride. Suddenly, on the corner I saw a girl who was young and beautiful as the clothes she was wearing. Must have been returning from a party. Out of courtesy, I turned my car towards her and asked if I may be of any help. She asked me if I could drop her to her home, she will be very much obliged, to which I agreed. (Who would deny a beautiful young company instead of a dry on sleepy night). 

She sat in the front seat with me. We started talking, and to my amazement she was very intelligent, had control on many topics which many youngsters don’t.  When we reached her address, she admitted my courteous nature and behavior and accepted that she had fallen in love with me.  I also admitted her intelligence and beauty and that I had also started liking her. I told her about my job as a professor in the university. The girl asked my number, which I gave her willingly.

Then she asked me a favor, to which I could not have denied naturally.  She said that her brother is a student in the same university, and asked me to take care of him, since we’ll be in a long relationship now. I asked the name of the student She said that I will recognize him with one of his very prominent quality. ‘He whistles a lot’.  The moment the professor said this, all eyes in the classroom turned towards the boy who had whistled.

The professor, turned to the boy and said, ‘Young Man I did not get my Ph.D in Psychology by sitting on my Ass.  Never underestimate the wisdom of someone who has experience of many years of how to lead a classroom where we surely get students who like to disturb the whole class. A soft message with love and compassion was enough because it is not the mouth that speaks, it is the heart that feels and talks. Nothing would have worked by being rude and using an angry tone.

Live Simply, Love All and There is always something to be Thankful for each and everyday.
