How Our Egos Sometimes Misjudges a Person………..

Based on a True Story:

A lady in a faded grey dress and her husband, dressed in a home-spun suit walked in timidly without an appointment into the Harvard University President’s outer office.  The secretary could tell in a moment that such backwoods, country hicks had no business at Harvard and probably did not even deserve to be in Harvard.  ‘We want to see the President’ the man said softly.  ‘He’ll be busy all day’ the secretary snapped. ‘We’ll wait’ the lady replied politely.

For hours the secretary ignored them, hoping that the couple would finally become discouraged and go away. They did not and the secretary grew frustrated and finally decided to disturb the President. ‘Maybe if you see them for a few minutes, they’ll leave’ she said to him.  The President, stern faced and with dignity, strutted towards the couple. The lady told him, ‘We had a son who attended Harvard for one year. He loved Harvard. He was happy here. But about a years ago, he was accidentally killed. My husband and I would like to erect a memorial to him, somewhere on the campus’

The President wasn’t touched. In fact, he was shocked. ‘Madam’ he said gruffly, ‘we can’t put up a statue for every person who attended Harvard and died. If we did, this place would look like a cemetery.’ ‘Oh, no,’ the lady explained quickly. ‘We don’t want to erect a statue. We thought we would like to give a building to your Harvard in his fond memory.’ The President rolled his eyes. He glanced at the gingham dress and homespun suit and then explained, ‘A building!!!! Do you have any earthly idea how much a building costs? We have over seven and half million dollars in the physical buildings here at Harvard.’

For a moment the lady was silent. The President was pleased. Maybe he could get rid of them now.  The lady turned to her husband and said quietly, ‘Is that all its costs to start a university? Why don’t we just start our own?’ He husband nodded. The President’s face wilted in confusion and bewilderment.  Mr. and Mrs. Leland Stanford got up and walked away, traveling to Palo Alto, California where they established the University that bears their name, Stanford University, a memorial to a son that Harvard no longer cared about.

Most of the time we judge people by their outer appearance, which can be misleading. And in this impression, we tend to treat people badly by thinking they can do nothing for us. Thus we tend to lose our potential good friends, employees or customers forever. 

Remember: In our life, we seldom get people with whom we want to share and grow our thought process. But because of our heavy headed EGOs’ we miss them forever.

Life is really very simple and beautiful. What we Give Out, We Get Back. The Gateway to Wisdom & Knowledge are always Open………

Speechless………..

Image result for images for mountains

My beautiful friend, Zaza from ‘Scribesforlove’ inspired me to write a Haiku or a Poem on this great word ‘SPEECHLESS’. Thank you Zaza for your encouragement. The poem reads:

Speechless, I stood motionless

And let the oceanic waves

Flow beneath my feet

Feeling the cool waters

Enjoying the ecstatic moment in bliss

Speechless, I stood watching

The flock of birds, flapping their wings

Flying high up in the blue skies

In groups of four or more

Forming a mystical symphony

Speechless, I stood gazing

At the tiny tots playing in the garden

In all their innocence, smiles of joy

Wished I was that child of delight

And joined them in their joyful laughter

Speechless, I stood in amazement

At the beauty that is me

A work of art created by my Father

Who had painted me in his perfection

Nothing more or Nothing less

Speechless, I stood in silence

In awe with the beautiful panorama

And thanked my Beloved profusely

For showering his Grace and Love

In his kindness on all Humanity…………………

Facts – Simple & True

Smile: Because it makes a difference to the person seeing you. It is so very contagious.

Cry: Because holding those emotions in is bad for you. You may burst at a later stage.

Laugh: Because what’s the point of hiding happiness. Laugh till your insides hurt.

Apologize: Because you do not want to lose someone special. It is nice to be forgiven and bring friendship back.

Love: Because you must experience this feeling once in your lifetime. It brings joy to the hearts.

Hug: Because there is no better feeling than being wrapped up warmly by someone you love.

Live: Because you have only one life and today will never come back. Live happily and cheerfully in this precious moment.

If you are Right then, there is no need to get Angry. And if you are Wrong then, you do not have any right to get Angry.

Patience with family is Love. Patience with Others is Respect.

Patience with Self is Confidence. And Patience with God is Faith.

Never think hard about the Past, it only brings Tears. Do not think more about the Future, it brings Fear.

Live this Moment with a Smile, it brings Cheer. Every Test in our Life makes Us Bitter or Better.

Every Problem comes to Make Us or Break Us. The Choice is Ours whether we become Victims or Victorious.

Beautiful Things are not always Good but good things are always Beautiful. Do you know why God created Gaps between our Fingers? So that Someone, who is Special to You, comes and fills those Gaps, by Holding Your Hand Forever.

Happiness’ keeps you Sweet but Being Sweet Brings Happiness……………

What taste do you leave in others’ Mouth’s……….

There was an old man who was admitted in a hospital. A young man was seen visiting him every day, and sits with him for more than one hour. He also helps the old man eat his food, and to take him for his shower.  Then he takes him walking in the garden for a stroll in the hospital compound. After that he brings him back to his room and helps him to lie down. He goes away after reassuring himself that the old man is doing well.

One day the nurse entered his room, to give him medicine and inspect his condition, and said to him: ‘May, the Lord be always gracious to your kind and caring son. Every day he visits you and shows great care towards you.’ The old man looked at her and closed his eyes and said to her: ‘I wish it was one of my children. You see, he is an orphan from the neighbourhood where we live. I met him one day when he was a small boy of 10 years crying at the door of a Mosque, after his father had died. I comforted and consoled him and bought for him a ‘CANDY’.

I neither saw him nor talked to him for a very long time. When he grew up and came to discover where my wife and I were living, he started visiting us every day to inspect our conditions. When I later felt sick, he took my old wife to his home. He then comes to the hospital to see if I am getting proper treatment every day.

One day I asked him: ‘My son why do you have to deal with us and care about us? Who are we to you. We are total strangers.’ He simply smiled and then said in a gentle tone: ‘THE TASTE OF THE CANDY IS STILL IN MY MOUTH.’

One needs to plant their actions well, if you do, even if it is not on your place, God will not Forget the beautiful deed wherever you have planted it. A beautiful deed will only be harvested by those who planted it, no matter how long it takes.

Sometimes miracles are just good people with kind hearts.

Live Simply, Love Deeply and Enjoy Life.

Drop the Mask……………

Drop the mask, dearies

Let go of the fake façade

You only lose what you cling to

Rid yourself of maddening desires

Do not run after so called deceits

Be naked as your birthday suit

Strip yourself of hatred, anger, jealousy

They are not treasures to be stored

But to be forgotten and forgiven

Or they will eat you alive crazily

Go past what’s limiting you

That is so not “YOU”

Let the Real “ONE” unfurl its petals

Drink the cup of Eternal Love

To emerge as a Divine Being

The garden of Boundless Love

Is not outside, it is within You

You are the Priceless Pearl

In this vast Ocean of Bliss

Drop the masks entirely

And delight in “Who You Really Are”

What is Love………..

Love is when you come back from work and your wife says, ‘You are looking very tired today. You must have a rough day. I have kept your bath of warm water and clothes ready. There is nice and hot food for you.’

Love is when your brother says, ‘Brother do not take any kind of tension, I am always there with you. Pl. do confide in me and I will never leave you.’

Love is when you are moodless and your sister says, ‘Come brother, we will go and have a nice quiet walk or go out for a great time.’

Love is when your best friend hugs you and says, ‘You know friend, I cannot stay a minute without you. I am missing you so much. Everything seems to be very boring.’

Love is when your kids tell you when you go to wake them up, ‘We love you, mom and dad in between kissing us all over. You are the best parents in the world.’

Love is when you say a prayer to God, ‘Thank you God, for everything. Make us love you more and more, make others happy and find real happiness in caring and giving through selfless service.

These are some of the best moments of love, don’t miss them in life.  Love is not only having a boyfriend or girlfriend. Love is for everyone and everything……………
