What a Life we live. Have you taken note of the co-incidence of life?

LIFE has 4 letters, so does DEAD.

HATE has 4 letters, so does LOVE.

ENEMIES have 7 letters, so does FRIENDS.

LYING has 5 letters, so does TRUTH.

HURT has 4 letters, so does HEAL.

NEGATIVE has 8 letters, so does POSITIVE.

FAILURE has 7 letters, so does SUCCESS.

CRY has 3 letters so does JOY.

ANGER has 5 letters, so does HAPPY.

RIGHT has 5 letters, so does WRONG.

RICH has 4 letters, so does POOR.

KNOWLEDGE has 9 letters so does IGNORANCE.

Are they all here by Coincidence? Or how did they come up in their right perception. We need to choose wisely, take life nice and easy as it comes. Life is very short, how we need to live and behave and talk to one and all who we meet in our life really matters. This simply means LIFE is like a double-edged sword.  It can cut you to pieces or can heal you from your hurts and sorrows. Love Life. We need to be thankful for what we have been given by Him who knows us all. It is his blessings to us……..

I know your sorrows, your fears

Drink deeply and passionately

Of the nectar of each beautiful day

I am rebirth, I am hope, I am truth

Even simple survival is sweet

An Empty Boat…………

Image result for images of a monk with his boat and an empty boat next to his boat

One day, a monk decides to meditate alone, away from his monastery. He takes his boat out to the middle of the lake, moors it there, closes his eyes, breathes normally and begins his meditation. After a few hours of undisturbed silence and in a deep meditative state, he suddenly feels the bump of another boat colliding with his own pretty hard. With his eyes still closed, he senses his anger rising and his face turns almost red with fury. By the time he opens his eyes, he is ready to scream at the boatman who dared disturb his meditation.

But when he opens his eyes, he sees it’s an empty boat that had probably got untethered and floated to the middle of the lake not knowing whether there was another boat floating by.  At that moment, the monk achieves self-realization and understands that the anger is within him, it merely needs the bumps of an external object to provoke it out of him.

From then on, whenever he comes across someone who irritates him or provokes him to anger, he reminds himself, ‘The other person is merely an empty boat. The anger is within me. It is not outside. I have to understand from where my anger is coming.’  Take time for introspection and search for your answers within yourself. Learn from your mistakes and be kind and gentle to whomever you come across in your life. Empty boat is simply a famous and fabulous metaphor. Its value lies in its implementation.

Every aspect of our lives needs to be reflected and contemplated through the lens of Timeless Wisdom. Being content and grateful are the keys to living a life free from anger and bitterness. Be a Light unto Yourself.

The E-Life……….

The Origins of Happiness: the Science of Well-Being over the Life Course |  Everywoman

In this world of Emails, E-tickets, E-paper, E-recharge, E-transfer and the latest E-Governance, E-commerce let us never forget our E-Ishwar (God):

Who makes e-verything e-asy for e-veryone, e-veryday.

“E” is the most Eminent letter of the English Alphabet.

Men or Women do not exist without “E”.

House or Home cannot be made without “E”.

Bread or Butter cannot be found without “E”.

“E” is the beginning of “existence” and the end of “trouble”.

It’s not at all in ‘war’ but twice in ‘peace’.

It’s once in ‘hell’ but twice in ‘heaven’.

“E” is also represented in “Emotions”.  Hence, all emotional relations like Father, Mother, Brother, Sister, Wife and Friends have “E” in them.

“E” also represents “Effort” and ‘Energy’.  Hence to be ‘better’ from good both ‘e” ‘s’ are added.

Without ‘e’, we would have no love, life, wife, friends or hope and ‘see’, ‘hear’, smell’, or ‘taste’ as ‘eye’, ‘ear’, ‘nose’ and ‘tongue’ are incomplete without ‘e’.

Finally, no “Life & Death’ is complete without “E”.

Hence let us all go with “E” but without “E-GO and enjoy Life and not Edge God Out but Edge God In.

I Want to Sing with the Birds……….

I want to sing with the birds

Wake at dawn with a winged heart

Giving thanks for another day

Can touch the sky with the birds

As they soar to freer skies

I want to sing with the birds

Script my imaginative dreams

Waltzing in lush green meadows

Surrounded by brilliant rays of colors

Being silent and listening to their singing

I want to sing with the birds

Open my hands wide and free

To be held by the freshness of the wind

Joyfully hug the lush green leaves

Running wild with the little puppies

I want to sing with the birds

Appreciate every beautiful moment

Whistling along with the lovely birds

Remembering my radiant true nature

And enjoying who I really AM…………..

Having an Optimistic attitude towards Life………

20 Quotes About Attitude To Be More Positive

Every human brain is both a broadcasting and receiving station for the vibration of thoughts, both negative and positive.  Unfortunately, we allow “negative feelings” like anxiety, despair, envy, stress and regret to overpower us and influence our way of thinking to such an extent that we sometimes do not want to rise the ladder towards success. We must believe in ourselves, with patience and determination we can achieve what we have set out to be in our life.

Once Beethoven’s teacher said to his mother, “As a composer he is hopeless. He will never be a great composer in his life.” A newspaper editor once fired Walt Disney because he was thought to have “no good ideas. You do not have new concepts.” When sculptor Auguste Rodin was young, he had difficulty in learning to read and write.  His father said, “I have an idiot for a son. I don’t know what to do with him.” 

There are many other people who have achieved great names for themselves and have done well in life. What if all these people had listened to the negativity all around them and become discouraged in life? Where would our World be without the Music of Beethoven, or the entertainment without Walt Disney?  As Oscar Levant has accurately said, “It’s not what you are, it’s what you don’t become that hurts.” 

Become a person who believes in Himself or Herself and spreads Positivity and encourages people in every walk of life to live with courage, hope and confidence.  Let us all grow in this feeling of positivity every single day, face every problem with a smile and an optimistic attitude. It may not change your problem overnight, but it can for sure change the way you go through life……….. 

Value the People in your Life……….

Pinterest

Every time you SMILE at someone, it’s a GIFT to that person.  They too smile back at twofold. SMILES are very catching.

Some enter your life as BLESSINGS, others as LESSONS. We must learn from them.

If we want to LOVE, we must learn how to FORGIVE ourselves first.

God did not call us to be SUCCESSFUL. He called us to be FAITHFUL.

If you cannot feed a HUNDRED people, then at least feed ONE and see happiness on his or her face.

If you JUDGE people at all times, you have no time to LOVE them. Be kind and compassionate. You have nothing to lose.

If you want to CHANGE the WORLD, first learn to change yourself.

LOVE your family and your fellow beings and spread LOVE everywhere you go. 

PEACE begins with a beautiful and joyous SMILE.

Life has taught us not to complain about others. It does not bring joy even if we want to.  Change yourself, if you want peace of mind because it is easier to protect your feet with slippers than to Carpet the whole world.

Life is nothing of importance when we get everything on a platter. But life is everything when we miss out on something. It is in suffering that one will know the pleasures of Life.  The Value of people is realized in their absence only.  Happiness often sneaks in through a door you did not know you had left open.  Sometimes we are tested not to expose our weakness, but to discover our strengths.

Walking in Nature’s and its Beauty…

Me and My Soul

Hand in hand, a wonderful feeling

Over enthusiastic as ever

Happy and joyous

Best friends forever

We’re walking in nature’s beauty

Singing along with the cherry trees

Listening to sweet magical melodies

Dancing a merry jig, a twirl, a skip

From gladdened warm 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

Beautifully singing are the birds

Oh! What a joy to be here

Where Me and My Soul

Are filled in raptures of ecstasy……………

The Irony of the Present Situation……….

The irony of the Corona moment - The Hindu

Let me tell you

Never have I seen

Such a mess in my life.

The air is pure and beautiful

But wearing a mask

Is compulsory and binding.

Roads are empty and deserted

But it is so impossible

To go on a long drive.

People have clean hands

But there is a ban

On hugging and shaking hands.

Friends have time to sit together

But they cannot get together

Have to stay isolated in their houses.

The cook inside you is crazy

But you cannot one-bit invite

Any of your friends to lunch or dinner.

Every Monday

The heart longs to go out

But the weekend does not seem to end.

Those who have a lot of money

Have no way to spend it at all

They are all locked up in their four walls.

The culprit is all around

But cannot be seen

A world full of irony!

Be positive, please test negative…………..

The Parable of the Coffee Bottle………..

Family having coffee and cake together | Premium Photo

A young couple had neighbours who were senior citizens, the husband was around 80 years old, and the wife about 5 years younger to him.  The young couple were very fond of them and made it a point to visit them and have coffee with them every Sunday and have a little chat with them.

They observed that the old lady would bring the coffee bottle to her husband to be opened, every time she went to make coffee.  The thoughtful young man gifted the lady a gadget, without her husband’s knowledge, to easily open the bottle, and showed her how to use it. 

On their next visit, the old lady once again brought the bottle for her husband to open.  The young couple were amazed. Had she forgotten about the gadget?  They both looked at each other a little surprised.  When the opportunity arose to be alone with the old lady, they quizzed her about this.  Her reply made both of them speechless.

She said, “Oh, dearies, I can surely open the bottle myself, even without your gadget that you have so kindly gifted me. But I get my husband to open it so he feels he is still stronger than I am and thus he feels he is the man of our home, that he remains useful to me as always, that I still depend on him, that togetherness is the main ingredient of any marriage.  You see we do not have many more years of life in us, and togetherness is of utmost importance for both of us.  We value our companionship a lot and feel nice and happy to be sharing things together.”

This clearly showed the young couple to never underestimate the wisdom of the elderly.  Our parents/grandparents may not be bringing in money any longer, but their guidance alone is priceless.  They have taught us what it is to be humane, loving and kind to one and all.  You may have a fruitless tree in your garden, but at least it gives you shade, you will not cut it off, now, will you?  Looking after the elderly and infirm should be looked upon as a blessing.
