The dream and the rejection

Sylvester Stallone is one of the most famous American Movie stars. With characters like Rocky and Rambo he is a household name in the hearts of millions.

During birth, a wrong gynecological procedure caused Stallone to have one sided paralysis. At school, his middle class being and his facial paralysis became a thing for others to make fun of.

He started body-building because he wanted to frighten those who bullied him. Slowly he started thinking of a career in movies.

Around 1974, he had a pregnant wife, a dog that he loved, a lot of bills to pay and no success in his movie career.

What he still had was a belief in his dream that he will make it big.

Soon a time came when he went broke. He was heavily under debt.

Restless, anxious, stressed and still loaded with hope that he WILL make it big.

Things got so bad that he had to sell his wife’s jewelry and ended up homeless. Sleeping at the New York Bus station for days.

The cold American winter forced him to choose between electricity and his dog. He stood outside a local store and sold his dog for $25.

Two weeks later, on TV he watched a boxing match between Mohammed Ali and Chuck Wepner. That match was like a flash of divine inspiration… For the next 20 hours he sat and wrote the script of what today is a cult movie, ROCKY.

In the words of Stallone, “After nearly 1500 rejections”, he got a production house to offer $125,000 for the script.

Despite the poverty, pains, pregnant wife and lost dog… His dream was to STAR in the movie as the MAIN LEAD.

In an era when heroes were super handsome men and spoke fluently, a body builder with a facial paralysis that made him stammer while speaking, made Stallone the wrong choice for any role.

The studio bluntly rejected his offer… And Stallone went back home with another failure.

A few weeks later,the studio offered him $250,000 for just the script, and not him.

He refused.

Soon they offered $350,000 for the script but not him.

At that time everyone was pushing him to accept. It would be MAD not to do so. He was making a fortune.

He still refused.

Someone in the studio really loved his script, and as fortune favors the brave. They finally accepted to give $35,000 for the script and have him as the lead star.

The rest as they say is history!

The movie was made for $1 million and went to make around $200 million.

It won the Oscar for Best Picture, Best Direction and Best Film Editing.

Stallone was a “bankable” hero for the next 20yrs, till the late 90s… with his movies making billions of dollars.

And what did he do with the first $35,000?

He stood outside the liquor store, where he sold his dog, for 3 days. Identified the man who had bought it, and finally got him back for $15,000.

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”
― Sylvester Stallone, Rocky

The Gratitude

There was a small bird living in a desert. With no sign of greenery the bird use to hop around on the hot sand through the day. An angel while on his way to God saw the little bird and felt pity. He went and asked
“O little bird! What are you doing in this hot desert? Can I do something for you?” The little bird said,“I am very pleased with my life, but this heat is unbearable. Both my feet are getting burnt. Only if there was a tree here, I’d be delighted”.  Angel said, “Growing a tree in the middle of desert is beyond my scope. I am   going to meet God, let me speak to Him and ask if He could fulfill your desire”. Angel asked God, if he could help the bird. God said,  “I could grow a tree, but her destiny doesn’t allow it. And I can’t change that. However, you can give her my message, which will help her survive the heat. Ask her to hop with one foot at a time. That way she can rest the other one for a while and change foot often. This way only one of her foot will have to bear the heat and other one will be able to rest and recover. Also tell her to remember all the good things that have happened in her life and be thankful to God for that.  Angel came back to where the bird was and gave her this message from God.The bird was delighted by the idea and thanked him for the effort he made to make her comfortable. After a few days,
Angel was crossing the same desert and thought of checking on the little bird. He saw the bird sitting on big green tree, right in the middle of the desert. Angel was happy to see the bird in comfort but was very disappointed with God who suggested that there was no tree in this bird’s destiny.He went to meet God and told Him the whole story.
God replied, “I never lied to you. There was no tree in the bird’s destiny. However, after you gave her my message, which asked her to be grateful to God for the kind things, she did put those words to action. She remembered every possible thing from her life and thanked God with a pure heart. I was moved with her feeling of gratitude and that’s what made me change her destiny”.

Angel was pleased with the answer.
A small gratitude can bring so much in our lives."

I am sixty

Many people feel unhappy, health-wise and security-wise, after 60 years of age, owing to the diminishing importance given to them and their opinions. But, it need not be so, if only we understand the basic principles of life and follow them scrupulously. Here are ten mantras to age gracefully and make life after retirement pleasant.

1. *Never say I am aged'* :
There are three ages, chronological, biological, and psychological. The first is calculated based on our date of birth; the second is determined by the health conditions; the third is how old we feel we are. While we don't have control over the first, we can take care of our health with good diet, exercise and a cheerful attitude. A positive attitude and optimistic thinking can reverse the third age.

2. *Health is Wealth:*
If you really love your kith and kin, taking care of your health should be your priority. Thus, you will not be a burden to them. Have an annual health check-up and take the prescribed medicines regularly. Do take health insurance coverage.

3. *Money is important:*
Money is essential for meeting the basic necessities of life, keeping good health and earning family respect and security. Don't spend beyond your means even for your children. You have lived for them all through and it is time you enjoyed a harmonious life with your spouse. If your children are grateful and they take care of you, you are blessed. But, never take it for granted.

4. *Relaxation and Recreation:*
The most relaxing and recreating forces are a healthy relationship and faith in God, good sleep, music and laughter.

5. *Time is Precious:*
It is almost like holding a horses' reins. When they are in your hands, you can control them. Remember: Yesterday is a cancelled cheque. Tomorrow is a promissory note. Today is ready cash - use it profitably. Live this moment; live it fully, now, in the present time.

6. *Change is the only Permanent Thing:*
We should accept change - it is inevitable. The only way to make sense out of change is to join in the dance. Change has brought about many pleasant things. We should be happy that our children are blessed.

7. *Enlightened Selfishness:*
All of us are basically selfish. Whatever we do, we expect something in return. We should definitely be grateful to those who stood by us. But, our focus should be on the internal satisfaction and the happiness we derive by doing good for others, without expecting anything in return. Perform a random act of kindness daily.

8. *Forget and Forgive:*
Don't be bothered too much about others' mistakes.  But for the sake of our own health and happiness, let us forgive and forget them. Otherwise, we will be only increasing our blood pressure.

9. *Everything has a Purpose:*
Take life as it comes. Accept yourself as you are and also accept others for what they are. Everybody is unique and is right in his own way.

10. *Overcome the Fear of Death:*
We all know that one day we have to leave this world. Still we are afraid of death. We think that our spouse and children will be unable to withstand our loss. But the truth is no one is going to die for you; they may be depressed for some time. Time heals everything and they will go on.

Someone asked Sri Ravi Shankar How to develop our personality ?

Sri Ravi Shankar:
To develop your personality, you have to spend five days to have these five experiences to really blossom in your life.
You can develop your personality with these five experiences.
You have to sincerely play these five roles:

 The first role which I would recommend to you is to be a School Teacher.
To teach lessons to children who are not learning, you need a lot of patience.
Being a nursery or primary school teacher, even for one day, you will see how you have to increase your patience.

Be a Gardener or spend a day with a Farmer.
If you are sowing the seeds,
if you are watering the plants,
you will know how you must care for water, earth and the environment.
You will have a feeling for the environment.
You will value food and you will not waste food.
You know, what we do?
We bring so much food, and we put it in the fridge and, after a few days in the refrigerator, we throw the food.
We are wasting millions and millions of tons of food every day.
We should not waste food.
This we will learn if we spend one day being a farmer or a gardener.

You should spend a day in the mental hospital.
Whatever people talk in the mental hospital, you don’t mind.
If they scold you,
if they blame you,
if they curse you,
will you mind?
You don’t mind because you are aware that this person is mentally sick.
You know that many people are outside the hospital, but that does not mean they are mentally well.
So, in life, you come across people who blame you for nothing, who are jealous or angry, who say things that make no sense. Then, you know, you will have the patience to deal with them with a smile. You will not take the garbage inside and spoil your mind.
So one day if you spend in a mental hospital, you will know how to save your mind.
You will stop being a football of others’ opinions.

One day you must go to a prison. Maybe it is shocking to you.
You don’t have to do a wrong thing to go to a prison.
Just go visit a prison, spend a little time with the prisoners.
You will understand what compassion is.
What helplessness is.
Those people did a mistake without awareness.
So you will know how you must have a say on your emotions.

There are terminally ill people in the hospital.
One day with them, and you will realize how precious life is.
And you will start valuing health.
You will eat better,
you will exercise.
You will do all that is needed to be more vibrant in your life.

With these five days what would be the outcome?

I guess from these five days you will become

More Vibrant,
More Alive,
More Loving,
and Active.

प्यारी बहु

बेटा-बहु अपने बैडरूम में बातें कर रहे थे। द्वार खुला होने के कारण उनकी आवाजें बाहर कमरे में बैठी माँ को भी सुनाई दे रहीं थीं।बेटा---" अपने job के कारण हम माँ का ध्यान नहीं रख पाएँगे, उनकी देखभाल कौन करेगा ? क्यूँ ना, उन्हें वृद्धाश्रम में दाखिल करा दें, वहाँ उनकी देखभाल भी होगी और हम भी कभी कभी उनसे मिलते रहेंगे  बेटे की बात पर बहु ने जो कहा, उसे सुनकर माँ की आँखों में आँसू आ गए। बहु- पैसे कमाने के लिए तो पूरी जिंदगी पड़ी है जी, लेकिन माँ का आशीष जितना भी मिले, वो कम है। उनके लिए पैसों से ज्यादा हमारा संग-साथ जरूरी है। मैं अगर job ना करूँ तो कोई बहुत अधिक नुकसान नहीं होगा।मैं माँ के साथ रहूँगी। घर पर tution पढ़ाऊँगी, इससे माँ की देखभाल भी कर पाऊँगी। याद करो, तुम्हारे बचपन में ही तुम्हारे पिता नहीं रहे और घरेलू काम धाम करके तुम्हारी माँ ने तुम्हारा पालन पोषण किया, तुम्हें पढ़ाया लिखाया, काबिल बनाया। तब उन्होंने कभी भी पड़ोसन के पास तक नहीं छोड़ा, कारण तुम्हारी देखभाल कोई दूसरा अच्छी तरह नहीं करेगा, और तुम आज ऐंसा बोल रहे हो। तुम कुछ भी कहो, लेकिन माँ हमारे ही पास रहेंगी, हमेशा, अंत तक। बहु की उपरोक्त बातें सुन, माँ रोने लगती है और रोती हुई ही, पूजा घर में पहुँचती है। ईश्वर के सामने खड़े होकर माँ उनका आभार मानती है और उनसे कहती है---" भगवान, तुमने मुझे बेटी नहीं दी, इस वजह से कितनी ही बार मैं तुम्हे भला बुरा कहती रहती थी,लेकिन.ऐंसी भाग्यलक्ष्मी देने के लिए तुम्हारा आभार मैं किस तरह मानूँ...? ऐंसी बहु पाकर, मेरा तो जीवन सफल हो गया, प्रभु।

अच्छी सोच

दो भाई थे ।
आपस में बहुत प्यार था।
खेत अलग अलग थे आजु बाजू।
बड़ा भाई शादीशुदा था ।
छोटा अकेला ।
एक बार खेती बहुत अच्छी हुई अनाज
बहुत हुआ ।
खेत में काम करते करते बड़े भाई ने
बगल के खेत में छोटे भाई को
खेत देखने का कहकर खाना खाने चला गया।
उसके जाते ही छोटा भाई सोचने लगा । खेती
तो अच्छी हुई इस बार अनाज भी बहुत
हुआ। मैं तो अकेला हूँ, बड़े भाई की तो
गृहस्थी है। मेरे लिए तो ये अनाज
जरुरत से ज्यादा है
। भैया के साथ तो भाभी बच्चे है ।
उन्हें जरुरत ज्यादा है।
ऐसा विचारकर वह 10 बोरे अनाज
बड़े भाई के अनाज में डाल देता
है। बड़ा भाई भोजन करके आता है ।
उसके आते ही छोटा भाई भोजन
के लिए चला जाता है।
भाई के जाते ही वह विचारता है ।
मेरा गृहस्थ जीवन तो अच्छे से चल रहा है...
भाई को तो अभी गृहस्थी जमाना है... उसे
अभी जिम्मेदारिया सम्हालना है...
मै इतने अनाज का
क्या करूँगा...
ऐसा विचारकर उसने 10 बोरे अनाज
छोटे भाई के खेत में डाल दिया...।
दोनों भाईयों के मन में हर्ष था...
अनाज उतना का उतना ही था और
हर्ष स्नेह वात्सल्य बढ़ा हुआ था...।
सोच अच्छी रखेंगें तो प्रेम
अपने आप बढेगा ..

There Was A Mirror Inside The Coffin:

Everyone Who Looked Inside It Could See Himself.

And There Was Also A Sign Next To The Mirror That Said: “There Is Only One Person Who Is Capable To Set Limits To Your Growth: It Is YOU”..

The Corns

There was a farmer who grew excellent quality corn. Every year he won the award for the best grown corn.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it.

The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors. “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.

“Why sir,” said the farmer, “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”

So is with our lives... Those who want to live meaningfully and well must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches.

And those who choose to be happy must help others find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all...

एक दौलतमंद इंसान ने अपने बेटे को वसीयत करते हुऐ कहा -
"बेटा मेरे मरने के बाद मेरे पैरों मे ये फटे हुऐ मोज़े (जुराबें) पहना देना, मेरी यह ख्वाहिश जरूर पूरी करना !

बाप के मरते ही नहलाने के बाद बेटे ने पंडितजी से बाप की ख़ाहिश बताई.

पंडितजी ने कहा धार्मिक रितीरिवाज के अनुसार कुछ भी पहनाने की इज़ाज़त नही है।
पर बेटे की ज़िद थी कि बाप की आखरी ख्वाहिश पूरी हो।
बहस इतनी बढ़ गई की शहर के पंडितो को जमा किया गया लेकिन कोई नतीजा नहीं निकला ।

इसी माहौल में एक शक़्स आया और आकर बेटे के हाथ मे बाप का लिखा हुआ खत दिया, जिस मे बाप की नसीहत लिखी थी
" मेरे प्यारे बेटे "
देख रहे हो ? दौलत, बंगला , गाडी, बड़ी बड़ी फैक्ट्रीयां और फॉर्म हाउस के बाद भी मैं एक फटा हुवा मोजा तक साथ नहीं ले जा सकता ।
एक रोज़ तुम्हें भी मौत आएगी, आगाह हो जाओ तुम्हे भी एक कफ़न मे ही जाना पड़ेगा।

लिहाज़ा कोशिश कर के दौलत का सही इस्तेमाल करना,
नेक राह मैं ख़र्च करना,
बेसहाराओं को सहारा बनना,
अर्थी में सिर्फ तुम्हारे कर्म ही जाएंगे "⁠⁠⁠⁠

शाही स्नान

शाही  स्नान का पर्व था। राम घाट पर भारी भीड़ लग रही थी।

शिव पार्वती आकाश से गुजरे। पार्वती ने इतनी भीड़ का कारण पूछा - आशुतोष ने कहा - सिंघस्त कुम्भ पर्व पर शाही  स्नान करने वाले स्वर्ग जाते है। उसी लाभ के लिए यह स्नानार्थियों की भीड़ जमा है।

पार्वती का कौतूहल तो शान्त हो गया पर नया संदेह उपज पड़ा, इतनी भीड़ के लायक स्वर्ग में स्थान कहाँ है? फिर लाखों वर्षों से लाखों लाख लोग इस आधार पर स्वर्ग पहुँचते तो उनके लिए स्थान भी तो कहीं रहता?

छोटे से स्वर्ग में यह कैसे बनेगा? भगवती ने अपनानया सन्देह प्रकट किया और समाधान चाहा।

भगवान शिव बोले - शरीर को गीला करना एक बात है और मन की मलीनता धोने वाला स्नान जरूरी है। मन को धोने वाले ही स्वर्ग जाते हैं। वैसे लोग जो होंगे उन्हीं को स्वर्ग मिलेगा।

सन्देह घटा नहीं, बढ़ गया।

पार्वती बोलीं - यह कैसे पता चले कि किसने शरीर धोया किसने मन संजोया।

यह कार्य से जाना जाता है। शिवजी ने इस उत्तर से भी समाधान न होते देखकर प्रत्यक्ष उदाहरण से लक्ष्य समझाने का प्रयत्न किया।

मार्ग में शिव कुरूप कोढ़ी बनकर पढ़ रहे। पार्वती को और भी सुन्दर सजा दिया। दोनों बैठे थे। स्नानार्थियों की भीड़ उन्हें देखने के लिए रुकती। अनमेल स्थिति के बारे में पूछताछ करती।

पार्वती जी रटाया हुआ विवरण सुनाती रहतीं। यह कोढ़ी मेरा पति है। गंगा स्नान की इच्छा से आए हैं। गरीबी के कारण इन्हें कंधे पर रखकर लाई हूँ। बहुत थक जाने के कारण थोड़े विराम के लिए हम लोग यहाँ बैठे हैं।

अधिकाँश दर्शकों की नीयत डिगती दिखती। वे सुन्दरी को प्रलोभन देते और पति को छोड़कर अपने साथ चलने की बात कहते।

पार्वती लज्जा से गढ़ गई। भला ऐसे भी लोग  स्नान को आते हैं क्या? निराशा देखते ही बनती थी।

संध्या हो चली। एक उदारचेता आए। विवरण सुना तो आँखों में आँसू भर लाए। सहायता का प्रस्ताव किया और कोढ़ी को कंधे पर लादकर  तट तक पहुँचाया। जो सत्तू साथ में था उसमें से उन दोनों को भी खिलाया।

साथ ही सुन्दरी को बार-बार नमन करते हुए कहा - आप जैसी देवियां ही इस धरती की स्तम्भ हैं। धन्य हैं आप जो इस प्रकार अपना धर्म निभा रही हैं।

प्रयोजन पूरा हुआ। शिव पार्वती उठे और कैलाश की ओर चले गए। रास्ते में कहा - पार्वती इतनों में एक ही व्यक्ति ऐसा था, जिसने मन धोया और स्वर्ग का रास्ता बनाया।  स्नान का महात्म्य तो सही है पर उसके साथ मन भी धोने की शर्त लगी है।

पार्वती तो समझ गई कि स्नान  महात्म्य सही होते हुए भी... क्यों लोग उसके पुण्य फल से वंचित रहते हैं?

The Echo

A son and his father were walking on the mountains. Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams out in pain.

To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain:

Curious, he yells: “Who are you?”
He receives the answer: “Who are you?”
Angered at the response, he screams: “Coward!”
He receives the answer: “Coward!”

He looks to his father and asks: “What’s going on?”

The father smiles and says: “My son, pay attention.”
And then he screams to the mountain: “I admire you!”
The voice answers: “I admire you!”

Again the man screams: “You are a champion!”
The voice answers: “You are a champion!”

The boy is surprised, but does not understand.

Then the father explains: “People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE. It gives you back everything you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.

If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart.

If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life; Life will give you back everything you have given to it.”

The Master

After having won many archery competitions, the town champion sought out the Zen master.

“I am the best of all,” he said. “I did not learn religion, I did not look for help from the monks, and I have been considered the best archer in the whole region. I heard that some time ago you were the best archer in the area, so I ask you: did you have to become a monk to learn to shoot arrows?

“No,” answered the Zen master.

But the champion was not satisfied: he took out an arrow, placed it in his bow, fired, and hit a cherry at a considerable distance. He smiled, as if to say: “You could have saved your time and just dedicated yourself to technique.” And he said:

“I doubt if you can do the same.”

Without demonstrating the least concern, the master took his bow and began to walk towards a nearby mountain. On the way there was an abyss that could only be crossed by an old rotting rope bridge that was almost falling down: with the utmost calm, the Zen master went to the middle of the bridge, took his bow, placed an arrow, aimed at a tree on the other side of the gulch, and hit the target.

“Now it’s your turn,” he said gently to the young man as he walked back to safe ground.

In trepidation, looking at the abyss below him, the young man went to the indicated spot and fired an arrow, but it landed very far from target.

“That’s what one gets from discipline and practicing meditation,” concluded the master when the young man re-appeared at his side. “You can be very skilled with the instrument you have chosen to earn a living, but it’s all useless if you can’t manage to master the mind that uses the instrument.”

Beside love nothing is important” “you are  right, we should invite love only” – her parents agreed. Women went out and asked saints –  “Between you all who is love please come inside the house” Love started walking towards the house!   Other two saints started following love.  The surprised women asked the saints – “i only invited love then why you two are coming inside the house?” One of the saint replied – “if you had invited prosperity or wealth, then only that particular saint would have entered your house.

But you have invited love!

Love never walks alone,
Where ever  love is, there is always prosperity and wealth. They all go hand in hand.

मित्रता और संदेह

एक फकीर बहुत दिनों तक बादशाह के साथ रहा बादशाह का बहुत प्रेम उस फकीर पर हो गया। प्रेम भी इतना कि बादशाह रात को भी उसे अपने कमरे में सुलाता।  कोई भी काम होता, दोनों साथ-साथ ही करते।एक दिन दोनों शिकार खेलने गए और रास्ता भटक गए। भूखे-प्यासे एक पेड़ के नीचे पहुंचे। पेड़ पर एक
ही फल लगा था।  बादशाह ने घोड़े पर चढ़कर फल को अपने हाथ से तोड़ा। बादशाह ने फल के छह टुकड़े किए और अपनी आदत क मुताबिक पहला टुकड़ा फकीर को दिया। फकीर ने टुकड़ा खाया और बोला,'बहुत स्वादिष्ट ! ऎसा फल कभी नहीं खाया। एक टुकड़ा और दे दें। दूसरा टुकड़ा भी फकीर को मिल गया। फकीर ने एक टुकड़ा और बादशाह से मांग लिया। इसी तरह फकीर ने पांच टुकड़े मांग कर खा लिए। जब फकीर ने आखिरी टुकड़ा मांगा, तो बादशाह ने कहा, 'यह सीमा से बाहर है। आखिर मैं भी तो भूखा हूं।  मेरा तुम पर प्रेम है, पर तुम मुझसे प्रेम नहीं करते।' और सम्राट ने फल का टुकड़ा मुंह में रख लिया।मुंह में रखते ही राजा ने उसे थूक दिया, क्योंकि वह कड़वा था। राजा बोला, 'तुम पागल तो नहीं, इतना कड़वा फल कैसे खा गए? 'उस फकीर का उत्तर था, 'जिन हाथों से बहुत मीठे फल खाने को मिले, एक कड़वे फल की शिकायत कैसे करूं? सब टुकड़े इसलिए लेता गया ताकि आपको पता न चले।

एक चुटकी नमक

एक व्यक्ति जीवन में आने वाली परेशानियों से बहुत दुखी था।उसे अपने दुखों के बीच जीने का कोई अर्थ समझ नहीं आ रहा था। वह डूबकर आत्महत्या करने नदी किनारे पहुंच गया, वह नदी में कूदने ही वाला था कि किसी मजबूत हाथ ने उसे पकड़कर पीछे खींच लिया। व्यक्ति को आत्महत्या से रोकने वाले उस नदी किनारे झोपड़ी में रहने वाले एक साधु बाबा थे।
युवक क्रोधित होते हुए साधु बाबा से बोला:- ‘आपने मुझे क्यों बचा लिया? इतने दुखों के बीच मैं जिंदा नहीं रह सकता।’ साधु बाबा ने उस व्यक्ति की बात कोई जवाब नहीं दिया और कहा, ‘तुम पानी पियो।’ साधु बाबा ने अपने थैले से एक कटोरी निकाली, उसमें पानी भरा और एक चुटकी नमक डाल दिया। पानी का एक घूंट पीकर युवक ने कहा:- ‘यह मैं नहीं पी सकता, इसमें बहुत नमक है।’ साधु बाबा ने कहा:- ‘चलो, फिर नदी का पानी पी लो, लेकिन जरा ठहरो।’  यह कहकर साधु बाबा ने नदी में एक चुटकी नमक डाल दिया। युवक ने पानी पिया, साधु बाबा ने पूछा:- ‘कैसा था पानी?’
युवक बोला:- ‘यह तो बहुत मीठा है।’ अब साधु बाबा ने उसे समझाया:- ‘जिन दुखों से डरकर तुम आत्महत्या करने जा रहे थे, वे तो बस चुटकी भर नमक की तरह हैं। लेकिन अभी तुम कटोरी की तरह हो, जिसमें यह नमक ज्यादा लग रहा है। जिस दिन तुम नदी बन जाओगे, यह दुखों का नमक तुम्हें नगण्य लगने लगेगा।’ हमें खुद को इतना योग्य और बड़ा बनाना होगा, ताकि दुखों का हमारे ऊपर प्रभाव न पड़ सके।

The Perception

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: 'I am blind, please help.' There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy.. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, 'Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?'

The man said, 'I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.' What he had written was: 'Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it.'

Do you think the first sign and the second sign were saying the same thing?

Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

The Help

A man, an avid Gardener saw a small Butterfly laying few eggs in one of the pots in his garden. Since that day he looked at the egg with ever growing curiosity and eagerness. The egg started to move and shake a little.He was excited to see a new life coming up right in front of his eyes. He spent hours watching the egg now. The egg started to expand and develop cracks. A tiny head and antennae started to come out ever so slowly. The man's excitement knew no bounds. He got his magnifying glasses and sat to watch the life and body of a pupa coming out. He saw the struggle of the tender pupa and couldn't resist his urge to "HELP". He went and got a tender forceps to help the egg break, a nip here, a nip there to help the struggling life and the pupa was out. The man was ecstatic! He waited now each day for the pupa to grow and fly like a beautiful butterfly, but alas that never happened. The larvae pupa had a oversized head and kept crawling along in the pot for the full 4 weeks and died! Depressed the man went to his botanist friend and asked the reason. His friend told him the struggle to break out of the egg helps the larvae to send blood to its wings and the head push helps the head to remain small so that the tender wings can support it thru its 4 week life cycle.In his eagerness to help, the man destroyed a beautiful life! Struggles help all of us, that's why a bit of effort goes a long way to develop our strength to face life's difficulties! As parents, we sometimes go too far trying to help and protect our kids from life's harsh realities and disappointments.We don't want our kids to struggle like we did. Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Dan Kindlon says that over-protected children are more likely to struggle in relationships and with challenges. We're sending our kids the message that they're not capable of helping themselves. To quote clinical psychologist, Dr. Wendy 's Moral:

The Real Power

There was a business executive who was deep in debt and could see no way out. Creditors were closing in on him. Suppliers were demanding payment. He sat on the park bench, head in hands, wondering if anything could save his company from bankruptcy. Suddenly an old man appeared before him. “I can see that something is troubling you,” he said. After listening to the executive’s woes, the old man said, “I believe I can help you.” He asked the man his name, wrote out a check, and pushed it into his hand saying, “Take this money. Meet me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back at that time.” Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come. The business executive saw in his hand a check for $500,000, signed by John D. Rockefeller, then one of the richest men in the world!“I can erase my money worries in an instant!” he realized. But instead, the executive decided to put the uncashed check in his safe. Just knowing it was there might give him the strength to work out a way to save his business, he thought.With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended terms of payment. He closed several big sales. Within a few months, he was out of debt and making money once again. Exactly one year later, he returned to the park with the uncashed check. At the agreed-upon time, the old man appeared. But just as the executive was about to hand back the check and share his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man.
“I’m so glad I caught him!” she cried. “I hope he hasn’t been bothering you. He’s always escaping from the rest home and telling people he’s John D. Rockefeller.”And she led the old man away by the arm.The astonished executive just stood there, stunned. All year long he’d been wheeling and dealing, buying and selling, convinced he had half a million dollars behind.Suddenly, he realized that it wasn’t the money, real or imagined, that had turned his life around. It was his newfound self-confidence that gave him the power to achieve anything he went after.

शिष्य का ध्यान

एक बार एक पूर्ण संत अपने एक प्रिय शिष्य के साथ अपने आश्रम के पास के वन क्षेत्र में भ्रमण कर रहे थे तभी उन संत जी मे अपने आगे आ गे एक बहुत बड़े और विषैले सर्प को जाते देखा  देख कर अपने शिष्य से बोले देखो कितना सुंदर प्राणी है जाओ पकडो इसे जरा पास से देखें  गुरु का हुक्म सुनते ही शिष्य बिना तनिक भी डरे या घबराए उस सर्प पर कूद गया और उसे पकड़ कर अपने गुरु के पास ले आया  अब वो सर्प इस सब से क्रोधित तो बहुत था परन्तु अपने सामने एक संत को देख कर शांत ही रहा संत नें कहा ठीक है अब जाने दो इसे और उस शिष्य नें उस सर्प को जाने दिया  अब संत बोले पुत्र तुम्हें उस सर्प से भय नहीं लगा  वह बोला आपके होते मुझे भय क्यों लगे हुक्म आपका था तो भय भी आपको ही लगना चाहिए  सुन कर संत मुस्करा दिया  उसी रात्रि जब सब आश्रम में सो रहे थे तो वही सर्प वहां आ गया और उस शिष्य के पास आ कर फुंकारा जैसे बदला लेने आया हो शिष्य की नींद खुल गयी और अपने सामने उसी सर्प को देख कर वो कुछ हैरान हुआ परन्तु बिना डरे उसने फिर से उसे पकडने की कोशिश की परन्तु इस बार उस सर्प ने उसके हाथ पर डस लिया  अब पीड़ा में उसने अपने गुरु को समरण किया  और उसे कुछ भी नहीं हुआ  अगली सुबह वह अपने गुरु के सम्मुख हाजिर हुआ और रात्रि की बात कह सुनाई और बोला देख लो मुझे उस विशैले सर्प के काटने से भी कुछ नहीं हुआ   तभी संत जी मे अपना हाथ आगे करके दिखाया और बोले देख ले भाई तेरी जिम्मेदारी ली है तो जो हुआ यहां हुआ है उनका हाथ जहर से नीला हो गया था  अब शिष्य अपने गुरु के आगे नतमस्तक हो गया शिष्यों को हो न हो परन्तु गुरु को सदैव अपने शिष्यों का ध्यान रहता है .

Don't Wait !

There is a time and place for patience- after you have tried every avenue possible and have planted as many seeds of solution as you can.patience is not a virtue if you sit back and wait for your problem to solve itself.If you are unemployed , don't expect the phone to ring or a letter to miraculously show up in your mailbox with job offers. Don't expect the government to telephone you and offer you a job. Don't expect the company to call you and rehire you.If such should be the case ,wonderful. But merely waiting for it to happen could be the worst thing to do. And many problems have the built in capability to grow more serious with the passing of time. To wait quietly for God to do something or for someone to come for your rescue could give the problem time to multiply its negative fallout.
If you want to solve your problem, don't wait for somebody else to help you. Tackle it yourself. Right now, understand that you alone are personally responsible for managing your problem. Don't expect anybody else to do it for you. Look to God and to your own capabilities.If you expect others to rescue you,you will only be disappointed. Worse than that, you may also become cynical and bitter.

Why fear when I am here

In the country of Armenia, in 1988, Samuel and Danielle sent their young son, Armand, off to school. Samuel squatted before his son  and looked him in the eye. “Have a good day at school, and remember, no matter what, I’ll always be there for you.” They hugged and the boy ran off to school.Hours later, a powerful earthquake rocked the area. In the midst of the pandemonium, Samuel and Danielle tried to discover what happened to their so  but they couldn’t get any information. The radio announced that there were thousands of casualties. Samuel then grabbed his coat and headed for the schoolyard. When he reached the area, what he saw brought tears to his eyes. Armand’s school was a pile of debris. Other parents were standing around crying.Samuel found the place where Armand’s classroom used to be and began pulling a broken beam off the pile of rubble. He then grabbed a rock and put it to the side, and then grabbed another one.One of the parents looking on asked, “What are you doing?” “Digging for my son,” Samuel answered. The man then said, “You’re just going to make things worse! The building is unstable,” and tried to pull Samuel away from his work.Samuel set his jaw and kept working. As time wore on, one by one, the other parents left. Then a fire-fighter tried to pull Samuel away from the rubble. Samuel looked at him and said, “Won’t you help me?” The fire-fighter left and Samuel kept digging.All through the night and into the next day, Samuel continued digging. Parents placed flowers and pictures of their children on the ruins. But, Samuel just kept working. He picked up a beam and pushed it out of the way when he heard a faint cry. “Help! Help!” Samuel listened but didn’t hear anything again. Then he heard a muffled voice, “Papa?”Samuel began to dig furiously. Finally he could see his son. “Come on out, son!” he said with relief. “No,” Armand said. “Let the other kids come out first because I know you’ll get me.” Child after child emerged until, finally, little Armand appeared. Samuel took him in his arms and Armand said, “I told the other kids not to worry because you told me that you’d always be there for me!”

Fourteen children were saved that day because one father was faithful.

Friends, whether trapped by fallen debris or ensnared by life’s hardships and struggles, we are never cut off from God’s faithfulness. He is true to His character. He is reliable and trustworthy and can be counted on always.

Attention Please !

A young and successful executive was driving down a neighbourhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar.  He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something. As his car passed, no children appeared.
Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door! He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to the spot where the brick had been thrown. The angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up against a parked car shouting,  'What was that all about and who are you? Just what the heck are you doing? That's a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why did you do it?'  The young boy was apologetic.   'Please, mister...please, I'm sorry but I didn't know what else to do,' he pleaded. 'I threw the brick because no one else would stop...'With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to a spot just around a parked car. 'It's my brother,' he said. 'He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up.'Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive, 'Would you please help me get him back into his wheelchair? 'He's hurt and he's too heavy for me.'Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump in his throat. He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at his fresh scrapes and cuts.  A quick look told him everything was going to be okay.  'Thank you and may God bless you,' the grateful child told the stranger, too shook up for words,The man simply watched the boy push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk towards their home.
  It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very
noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair the dented side door. He kept the dent there to remind himself of this message: 'Don't go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to  get your attention!'  God whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts. Sometimes when we  don't have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us. It's our choice to listen or not.

100 Dollars

SON: "Daddy, may I ask you a question?"
DAD: "Yeah sure, what is it?"
SON: "Daddy, how much do you make an hour?"
DAD: "That's really none of your business. Why do you ask?"
SON: "I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?"
DAD: "If you must know, I make $100 an hour."
SON: "Oh. (With his head down).
SON: "Daddy, can I please borrow $50?"
DAD: "REALLY?! If you're asking to borrow money for some silly toy or game, you can just march yourself straight to your room to think about why you're being so selfish. I work hard everyday to provide for this family, and this is the thanks I get?"

The little boy went quietly to his room and shut the door.

The dad sat down and started getting even angrier about his son's questions. "How dare he ask question like that just to get some money?" he stewed.

After an hour, the dad calmed down, and started to think: "Maybe there was something he really needed the $50 for? He doesn't ask for money often..."

So, the dad went to his son's door and opened it.

DAD: "Are you asleep, son?"
SON: "No daddy, I'm awake".
DAD: "I've been thinking, and maybe I was too hard on you earlier. It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the $50 you asked for."

The little boy sat straight up, smiling.
SON: "Oh, thank you daddy!"

Then, reaching under his pillow, the boy pulled out some crumpled-up dollar bills. When the dad saw the boy already had money, he started getting angry again as the little boy slowly counted out his money and looked up at his father.

DAD: "Why do you want more money if you already have some?"
SON: "Because I didn't have enough, but now I do. Daddy, I have $100 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you."

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and begged for his forgiveness through a stream of tears.

Just a reminder to all who are work so hard in life to not let time slip through our fingers without dedicating special time with those who matter most.

If we die tomorrow, the company we may work for could replace us in a matter of days.... but, loved ones we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives, having only precious memories to hold.

Salt and Pepper

Mensa, is an international organization for people who have an IQ of 140 or higher.

Several of the Mensa members went out for lunch at a local cafe. When they sat down, one of them discovered that their salt shaker contained pepper, and their pepper shaker was full of salt.

How could they swap the contents of the two bottles without spilling any, and using only the implements at hand? Clearly -- this was a job for Mensa minds.

The group debated the problem and presented ideas and finally, came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an empty saucer.

They then called the waitress over, ready to dazzle her with their solution.

"Ma'am," they said, "we couldn't help but notice that the pepper shaker contains salt and the salt shaker contains pepper..."

But before they could finish, the waitress interrupted & said...

"Oh -- sorry about that."

She leaned over the table, unscrewed the caps of both bottles and interchanged  them.

There was dead silence at the Mensa table.

For most of the problems there are simple solutions but it is our “brilliant” minds that complicate every simple solution.

Wet Pants

Come with me to a third grade classroom..... There is a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of a sudden, there is a puddle between his feet and the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly imagine how this has happened. It's never happened before, and he knows that when the boys find out he will never hear the end of it. When the girls find out, they'll never speak to him again as long as he lives. The boy believes his heart is going to stop; he puts his head down and prays this prayer, "Dear God, this is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes from now I'm dead meat."
He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher with a look in her eyes that says he has been discovered. As the teacher is walking toward him, a classmate named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled with water. Susie trips in front of the teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the boy' s lap. The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is saying to himself, "Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!"
Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule, the boy is the object of sympathy. The teacher rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts to put on while his pants dry out. All the other children are on their hands and knees cleaning up around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful. But as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his has been transferred to someone else - Susie. She tries to help, but they tell her to get out. You've done enough, you  Clumsy girl!"
Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting for the bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers, "You did that on purpose, didn't you?" Susie whispers back, "I wet my pants once too."
May God help us see the opportunities that are always around us to do good.. Remember.....Just going to a place of worship doesn't make you a good person  any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.
Each and everyone one of us is going through tough times right now, but God is getting ready to bles s you in a way that only He can. Keep the faith.

Final Whistle

I watched a local football match in a school playing ground.

As I sat down, I asked one of the boys what the score was???

With a proud smile, he
replied : "They are leading us 3-0" !!!

I have to say you don't look discouraged."

"Discouraged?" the boy asked with a puzzled look.

"Why should I be discouraged when the referee has not blown the final whistle???"

Truly, I didn't have an answer to this question!!!

As I got back home that night, his question became a course in my stay in life indeed.

Life is like a game.
Why should you be discouraged when game is still on... the final whistle is yet to be blown on your life???
Give to try again.

The Truth is that, as long as there is life, nothing is impossible & it is never too late for you.

Don't blow the whistle on yourself.

Life can begin at 60, it is all in your hands! Many people feel unhappy, health-wise and security-wise, after 60 years of age, owing to the diminishing importance given to them and their opinions. But, it need not be so, if only we understand the basic principles of life and follow them scrupulously. Here are ten mantras to age gracefully and make life after retirement pleasant.

1. Never say I am aged' :
There are three ages, chronological, biological, and psychological. The first is calculated based on our date of birth; the second is determined by the health conditions; the third is how old we feel we are. While we don't have control over the first, we can take care of our health with good diet, exercise and a cheerful attitude. A positive attitude and optimistic thinking can reverse the third age.

2. Health is wealth:
If you really love your kith and kin, taking care of your health should be your priority. Thus, you will not be a burden to them. Have an annual health check-up and take the prescribed medicines regularly. Do take health insurance coverage.

3. Money is important:
Money is essential for meeting the basic necessities of life, keeping good health and earning family respect and security. Don't spend beyond your means even for your children. You have lived for them all through and it is time you enjoyed a harmonious life with your spouse. If your children are grateful and they take care of you, you are blessed. But, never take it for granted.

4. Relaxation and recreation:
The most relaxing and recreating forces are a healthy religious attitude, good sleep, music and laughter. Have faith in God, learn to sleep well, love good music and see the funny side of life.

5. Time is precious:
It is almost like holding a horses' reins. When they are in your hands, you can control them. Imagine that everyday you are born again. Yesterday is a cancelled cheque. Tomorrow is a promissory note. Today is ready cash - use it profitably. Live this moment; live it fully, now, in the present time.

6. Change is the only permanent thing: We should accept change - it is inevitable. The only way to make sense out of change is to join in the dance. Change has brought about many pleasant things. We should be happy that our children are blessed.

7. Enlightened selfishness:
All of us are basically selfish. Whatever we do, we expect something in return. We should definitely be grateful to those who stood by us. But, our focus should be on the internal satisfaction and the happiness we derive by doing good for others, without expecting anything in return. Perform a random act of kindness daily.

8. Forget and forgive:
Don't be bothered too much about others' mistakes. We are not spiritual enough to show our other cheek when we are slapped in one. But for the sake of our own health and happiness, let us forgive and forget them. Otherwise, we will be only increasing our blood pressure.

9. Everything has a purpose:
Take life as it comes. Accept yourself as you are and also accept others for what they are. Everybody is unique and is right in his own way.

10. Overcome the fear of death:
We all know that one day we have to leave this world. Still we are afraid of death. We think that our spouse and children will be unable to withstand our loss. But the truth is no one is going to die for you; they may be depressed for some bin time. Time heals everything and they will go on.

एक बूँद ..जो सागर का अंश थी ! एक बार हवा के संग बादलोँ तक पहुँच गई । इतनी ऊँचाई पाकर उसे बड़ा अच्छा लगा । अब उसे सागर के आँचल मेँ कितने ही दोष नज़र आने लगे। लेकिन अचानक ..एक दिन बादल ने उसे ज़मीन पर एक गंदे नाले मेँ पटक दिया । एकाएक उसके सारे सपने, सारे अरमां चकनाचूर हो गए ।
ये एक बार नहीँ अनेकोँ बार हुआ । वो बारिश बन नीचे आती, फिर सूर्य की किरणेँ उसे बादल तक पहुँचा देती ।
अब उसे अपने सागर की बहुत याद आने लगी । उससे मिलने को वो बेचैन हो गई ; बहुत तड़पी, बहुत तड़पी ।
फिर . एक दिन सौभाग्यवश एक नदी के आँचल मेँ जा गिरी । उस नदी ने अपनी बहती रहनुमाई मेँ उसे सागर तक पहुँचा दिया।सागर को सामने देख बूँद बोली - हे मेरे पनाहगार सागर ! मैँ शर्मसार हूँ । अपने किये कि सज़ा भोग चुकी हूँ । आपसे बिछुड़ कर मैँ एक पल भी शांत ना रह पाई । दिन-रैन दर्द भरे आँसू बहाए हैँ ; अब इतनी प्रार्थना है कि आप मुझे अपने पवित्र आँचल मेँ समेट लो !सागर बोला - बूँद ! तुझे पता है तेरे बिन मैँ कितना तड़पा हूँ ! तुझे तो दुःख सहकर एहसास हुआ ।लेकिन मैँ ..मैँ तो उसी वक्त से तड़प रहा हूँ जब तूने पहली बार हवा का संग किया था तभी से तेरा इंतज़ार कर रहा हूँ ।...और जानती है उस नदी को मैँने ही तेरे पास भेजा था । अब आ ! आजा मेरे आँचल मेँ .बूँद आगे बढ़ी और सागर मेँ समा गई । बूँद सागर बन गई।.ये बूँद कोई और नहीँ ; हम सब ही वो बूँदेँ हैँ, जो अपने आधारभूत सागर उस परमात्मा से बिछुड़ गई हैँ। इसलिए ना जाने कितने जन्मोँ से भटक रहे हैँ। और वो ईश्वर ना जाने कब से हमसे मिलने को तड़प रहा है ।उनका वो दर्द , वो तड़प ही "पूर्ण सद्‌गुरु" के रुप मेँ इस धरती पर बार-बार अवतरित होता है । हमेँ उनसे मिलाने के लिए ही । ये नदिया सत्संग है

The Value

A man went to God and asked, "What's the value of life?"

God gave him one stone and said, "Find out the value of this stone, but don't sell it."

The man took the stone to an Orange Seller and asked him what it's cost would be.

The Orange Seller saw the shiny stone and said, "You can take 12 oranges and give me the stone."

The man apologized and said that the God has asked him not to sell it.

He went ahead and found a vegetable seller. "What could be the value of this stone?" he asked the vegetable seller. The seller saw the shiny stone and said, "Take one sack of potatoes and give me the stone."

The man again apologized and said he can't sell it.

Further ahead, he went into a jewellery shop and asked the value of the stone.

The jeweler saw the stone under a lens and said, "I'll give you 50 Lakhs for this stone." When the man shook his head, the jeweler said, "Alright, alright, take 2 crores, but give me the stone."

The man explained that he can't sell the stone. Further ahead, the man saw a precious stone's shop and asked the seller the value of this stone.

When the precious stone's seller saw the big ruby, he lay down a red cloth and put the ruby on it. Then he walked in circles around the ruby and bent down and touched his head in front of the ruby.

"From where did you bring this priceless ruby from?" he asked. "Even if I sell the whole world, and my life, I won't be able to purchase this priceless stone.

Stunned and confused, the man returned to the God and told him what had happened. "Now tell me what is the value of life, God?

God said, "The answers you got from the Orange Seller, the Vegetable Seller, the Jeweler & the Precious Stone's Seller explain the value of our life...

You may be a precious stone, even priceless, but people may value you based on their level of information, their belief in you, their motive behind entertaining you, their ambition, and their risk taking ability. But don't fear, you will surely find someone who will discern your true value. I surely do."

In the eyes of God You are very very precious

The bamboo

I quit my job,
my relationship,
my spirituality…
I wanted to quit my life.
I went to the woods to have one last talk with god

“God”, I asked,
“Can you give me one good reason not to quit?”.His answer surprised me. “Look around”, He said. “Do you see the fern and the bamboo ? “Yes”, I replied. “When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. I gave them water.The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor.Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo. In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.  He said, “In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed.But I would not quit. In year four, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. I would not quit.” He said. “Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth. Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant. But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall. It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.

I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle.”

He asked me. “Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots”.

“I would not quit on the bamboo.I will never quit on you.”

“Don’t compare yourself to others.” He said.

”The bamboo had a different Purpose than the fern.
Yet they both make the forest beautiful.”

"Your time will come”, God said to me.
“You will rise high”.

“How high should I rise?” I asked.

“How high will the bamboo rise?” He asked in return.

“As high as it can?” I questioned.

”Yes.” He said, “Give Me glory by rising as high as you can.”

I left the forest and brought back this story.

Your Angel

A baby asked God,"They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow,  but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?" God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."  The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy." God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."  Again the small child  asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?" God said,"Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel  will teach you how to speak."
"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"  God said,"Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."

"Who will protect me?"

God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking her life."

"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."

God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Meand will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you."

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel'sname."

God said,You will simply call!

सोया भाग्य

एक व्यक्ति जीवन से हर प्रकार से निराश था | लोग उसे मनहूस के नाम से बुलाते थे | एक ज्ञानी पंडित ने उसे बताया कि तेरा भाग्य फलां पर्वत पर सोया हुआ है , तू उसे जाकर जगा ले तो भाग्य तेरे साथ हो जाएगा |
बस ! फिर क्या था वो चल पड़ा अपना सोया भाग्य जगाने | रास्ते में जंगल पड़ा तो एक शेर उसे खाने को लपका , वो बोला भाई ! मुझे मत खाओ , मैं अपना सोया भाग्य जगाने जा रहा हूँ | शेर ने कहा कि तुम्हारा भाग्य जाग जाये तो मेरी एक समस्या है , उसका समाधान पूछते लाना , मेरी समस्या ये है कि मैं कितना भी खाऊं ... मेरा पेट भरता ही नहीं है , हर समय पेट भूख की ज्वाला से जलता रहता है | मनहूस ने कहा-- ठीक है |
आगे जाने पर एक किसान के घर उसने रात बिताई | बातों बातों में पता चलने पर कि वो अपना सोया भाग्य जगाने जा रहा है , किसान ने कहा कि मेरा भी एक सवाल है .. अपने भाग्य से पूछकर उसका समाधान लेते आना ... मेरे खेत में , मैं कितनी भी मेहनत कर लूँ ... पैदावार अच्छी होती ही नहीं | मेरी शादी योग्य एक कन्या है , उसका विवाह इन परिस्थितियों में मैं कैसे कर पाऊंगा ? मनहूस बोला -- ठीक है | और आगे जाने पर वो एक राजा के घर मेहमान बना | रात्री भोज के उपरान्त राजा ने ये जानने पर कि वो अपने भाग्य को जगाने जा रहा है , उससे कहा कि मेरी परेशानी का हल भी अपने भाग्य से पूछते आना | मेरी परेशानी ये है कि कितनी भी समझदारी से राज्य चलाऊं... मेरे राज्य में अराजकता का बोलबाला ही बना रहता है | मनहूस ने उससे भी कहा -- ठीक है | अब वो पर्वत के पास पहुँच चुका था | वहां पर उसने अपने सोये भाग्य को झिंझोड़ कर जगाया--- उठो ! उठो ! मैं तुम्हें जगाने आया हूँ | उसके भाग्य ने एक अंगडाई ली और उसके साथ चल दिया |उसका भाग्य बोला -- अब मैं तुम्हारे साथ हरदम रहूँगा | अब वो मनहूस न रह गया था बल्कि भाग्यशाली व्यक्ति बन गया था और अपने भाग्य की बदौलत वो सारे सवालों के जवाब जानता था | वापसी यात्रा में वो उसी राजा का मेहमान बना और राजा की परेशानी का हल बताते हुए वो बोला -- चूँकि तुम एक स्त्री हो और पुरुष वेश में रहकर राज - काज संभालती हो , इसीलिए राज्य में अराजकता का बोलबाला है | तुम किसी योग्य पुरुष के साथ विवाह कर लो , दोनों मिलकर राज्य भार संभालो तो तुम्हारे राज्य में शांति स्थापित हो जाएगी |
रानी बोली -- तुम्हीं मुझ से ब्याह कर लो और यहीं रह जाओ | भाग्यशाली बन चुका वो मनहूस इन्कार करते हुए बोला -- नहीं नहीं ! मेरा तो भाग्य जाग चुका है | तुम किसी और से विवाह कर लो | तब रानी ने अपने मंत्री से विवाह किया और सुखपूर्वक राज्य चलाने लगी | कुछ दिन राजकीय मेहमान बनने के बाद उसने वहां से विदा ली | चलते चलते वो किसान के घर पहुंचा और उसके सवाल के जवाब में बताया कि तुम्हारे खेत में सात कलश हीरे जवाहरात के गड़े हैं , उस खजाने को निकाल लेने पर तुम्हारी जमीन उपजाऊ हो जाएगी और उस धन से तुम अपनी बेटी का ब्याह भी धूमधाम से कर सकोगे | किसान ने अनुग्रहित होते हुए उससे कहा कि मैं तुम्हारा शुक्रगुजार हूँ , तुम ही मेरी बेटी के साथ ब्याह कर लो | पर भाग्यशाली बन चुका वह व्यक्ति बोला कि नहीं !नहीं ! मेरा तो भाग्योदय हो चुका है , तुम कहीं और अपनी सुन्दर कन्या का विवाह करो | किसान ने उचित वर देखकर अपनी कन्या का विवाह किया और सुखपूर्वक रहने लगा | कुछ दिन किसान की \ मेहमाननवाजी भोगने के बाद वो जंगल में पहुंचा और शेर से उसकी समस्या के समाधानस्वरुप कहा कि यदि तुम किसी बड़े मूर्ख को खा लोगे तो तुम्हारी ये क्षुधा शांत हो जाएगी | शेर ने उसकी बड़ी आवभगत करी और यात्रा का पूरा हाल जाना | सारी बात पता चलने के बाद शेर ने कहा कि भाग्योदय होने के बाद इतने अच्छे और बड़े दो मौके गंवाने वाले ऐ इंसान ! तुझसे बड़ा मूर्ख और कौन होगा ? तुझे खाकर ही मेरी भूख शांत होगी |
और इस तरह वो इंसान शेर का शिकार बनकर मृत्यु को प्राप्त हुआ | सच है ---- यदि आपके पास सही मौका परखने का विवेक और अवसर को पकड़ लेने का ज्ञान नहीं है तो भाग्य भी आपके साथ आकर आपका कुछ भला नहीं कर सकता | सदैव स्मरण रखिये 🏻 सौभाग्य आपका दरवाजा बस एक बार खटखटाता है वो भी धीरे से परन्तु दुर्भाग्य आपका दरवाजा जोर जोर से तब तक खटखटाता रहता है जब तक कि आप दरवाजा खोल नहीं देते।

किसका भाग्य

एक बार यात्रियों से भरी एक बस कहीं जा रही थी। अचानक मौसम बदला धुलभरी आंधी के बाद बारिश की बूंदे गिरने लगी बारिश तेज होकर तूफान मे बदल चुकी थी घनघोर अंधेरा छा गया भयंकर बिजली चमकने लगी बिजली कडककर बस की तरफ आती और वापस चली जाती ऐसा कई बार हुआ सब की सांसे ऊपर की ऊपर
और नीचे की नीचे। ड्राईवर ने आखिरकार बस को एक बडे से पेड से करीब पचास कदम की दूरी पर रोक दी
और यात्रियों से कहा कि इस बस मे कोई ऐसा यात्री बैठा है जिसकी मौत आज निश्चित है उसके साथ साथ कहीं हमे भी अपनी जिन्दगी से हाथ न धोना पडे इसलिए सभी यात्री एक एक कर जाओ और उस पेड के हाथ लगाकर आओ जो भी बदकिस्मत होगा उस पर बिजली गिर जाएगी और बाकी सब बच जाएंगे। सबसे पहले जिसकी बारी थी उसको दो तीन यात्रियों ने जबरदस्ती धक्का देकर बस से नीचे उतारा वह धीरे धीरे पेड तक गया डरते
डरते पेड के हाथ लगाया और भाग कर आकर बस मे बैठ गया। ऐसे ही एक एक कर सब जाते और भागकर
आकर बस मे बैठ चैन की सांस लेते।अंत मे केवल एक आदमी बच गया उसने सोचा तेरी मौत तो आज निश्चित है सब उसे किसी अपराधी की तरह देख रहे थे जो आज उन्हे अपने साथ ले मरता उसे भी जबरदस्ती बस से नीचे उतारा गया वह भारी मन से पेड के पास पहुँचा और जैसे ही पेड के हाथ लगाया तेज आवाज से बिजली कडकी और बिजली बस पर गिर गयी बस धूं धूं कर जल उठी सब यात्री मारे गये सिर्फ उस एक को छोडकर जिसे सब बदकिस्मत मान रहे थे वो नही जानते थे कि उसकी वजह से ही सबकी जान बची हुई थी। "दोस्तो हम सब अपनी सफलता का श्रेय खुद लेना चाहते है जबकि क्या पता हमारे साथ रहने वाले की वजह से हमे यह हासिल हो पाया हो ।

शाम का समय था। महात्मा बुद्ध एक शिला पर बैठे हुए थे। वह डूबते सूर्य को एकटक देख रहे थे। तभी उनका शिष्य आया और गुस्से में बोला, गुरुजी रामजी नाम के जमींदार ने मेरा अपमान किया है। आप तुरंत चलें, उसे उसकी मूर्खता का सबक सिखाना होगा। महात्मा बुद्ध मुस्कुराकर बोले, प्रिय तुम बौद्ध हो, सच्चे बौद्ध का अपमान करने की शक्ति किसी में नहीं होती। तुम इस प्रसंग को भुलाने की कोशिश करो। जब प्रसंग को भूला दोगे, तो अपमान कहां बचेगा।
लेकिन तथागत, उस धूर्त ने आपके प्रति भी अपशब्दों का उपयोग किया है।
आपको चलना ही होगा। आपको देखते ही वह अवश्य शर्मिंदा हो जाएगा और अपने किए की क्षमा मांगेगा। बस, मैं संतुष्ट हो जाऊंंगा। महात्मा बुद्ध समझ गए कि शिष्य में प्रतिकार की भावना प्रबल हो उठी है। इस पर सदुपदेश का प्रभाव नहीं पड़ेगा। कुछ विचार करते हुए वह बोले, अच्छा वत्स यदि ऐसी बात है तो मैं अवश्य ही रामजी के पास चलूंगा, और उसे समझाने की पूरी कोशिश करूंगा। बुद्ध ने कहा, हम सुबह चलेंगे।
सुबह हुई, बात आई-गई हो गई। शिष्य अपने काम में लग गया और महात्मा बुद्ध अपनी साधना में। दूसरे दिन जब दोपहर होने पर भी शिष्य ने बुद्ध से कुछ नहीं कहा तो बुद्ध ने स्वयं ही शिष्य से पूछा आज रामजी के पास चलोगे ना। नहीं गुरुवर! मैंने जब घटना पर फिर से विचार किया तो मुझे इस बात का आभास हुआ कि भूल मेरी ही थी। मुझे अपनी गलती पर भारी पश्चाताप है। अब रामजी के पास चलने की कोई जरूरत नहीं। तथागत ने हंसते हुए कहा, यदि ऐसी बात है तो अब जरूर ही हमें रामजी महोदय के पास चलना होगा। अपनी भूल की क्षमा याचना नहीं करोगे।
सीख:हमे दूसरों से हुई भूल को माफ़ कर देना चाहिए और खुद से हुई भूल के लिए दूसरों से माफी मांग लेनी चाहिए।

अंधे की आँखे

बुद्ध एक गांव में गए थे। एक अंधे आदमी को कुछ लोग उनके पास लाए और उन मित्रों ने कहा कि यह आदमी अंधा है और हम इसके परम मित्र हैं। और हम इसे सब भांति समझाने की कोशिश करते हैं कि प्रकाश है, लेकिन यह मानने को राजी नहीं होता और इसकी दलीलें ऐसी हैं कि हम हार जाते हैं। और हम जानते हैं कि प्रकाश है, हमें देखते हुए हारना पड़ता है। यह आदमी हमसे कहता है, मैं प्रकाश को छूकर देखना चाहता हूं। अब हम प्रकाश का स्पर्श कैसे करवाएं? यह आदमी कहता है छोड़ो, स्पर्श न हो सके तो मैं सुन कर देखना चाहता हूं मेरे पास कान हैं। तुम प्रकाश में आवाज करो, मैं सुन लूं। छोड़ो, यह भी न हो सके तो मैं स्वाद लेकर देख लूं या प्रकाश में कोई गंध हो तो गंध लेकर देख लूं।
कोई उपाय नहीं है। प्रकाश तो आंख से देखा जा सकता है और आंख इसके पास नहीं है। और यह आदमी यह कहता है कि तुम फिजूल ही मुझे अंधा सिद्ध करने को प्रकाश की बातें करते हो। तुम भी अंधे मालूम होते हो, प्रकाश की ईजाद तुमने मुझे अंधा बताने के लिए तय कर ली है। तो हमने सोचा, आप इस गांव में आए हैं, शायद आप इसको समझा सकें।
बुद्ध ने कहा कि मैं इसे समझाने के पागलपन में नहीं पडूगा। आदमी की आज तक मुसीबत ही उन लोगों ने की है जिन लोगों ने आदमी को ऐसी बातें समझाने की कोशिशें की हैं जो उनको दिखाई नहीं पड़ती। मनुष्य के ऊपर उपदेशक बड़ी महामारी सिद्ध हुआ है। वे ऐसी बातें समझाता है जो उसको दिखाई नहीं पड़ती।
तो बुद्ध ने कहा कि मैं यह गलती करने वाला नहीं हूं और मैं यह समझाने वाला नहीं हूं कि प्रकाश है। मैं तो इतना कह सकता हूं कि इस आदमी को तुम गलत जगह ले आए हो। मेरे पास लाने की जरूरत न थी। किसी वैद्य के पास ले जाओ जो इसकी आंख का इलाज कर सके। इसे उपदेश की नहीं, उपचार की जरूरत है। तुम्हारे समझाने का सवाल नहीं, तुम्हारी समझाई गई बात पर विश्वास करने का सवाल नहीं। इसकी आंख ठीक होनी चाहिए। और आंख ठीक हो जाए तो तुम्हें समझाने की जरूरत न पडेगी, यह खुद ही देख सकेगा, खुद ही जान सकेगा।
उनको बात ठीक जंची। बुद्ध ने कहा है कि मैं तो धर्म को उपदेश नहीं मानता हूं उपचार मानता हूं। तो इसे ले जाओ। वे उस अंधे को ले गए और भाग्य की बात थी कि वह अंधा कुछ महीनों के इलाज से ठीक हो गया। बुद्ध तो दूसरे गांव चले गए थे। वह अंधा आदमी ठीक हो गया था। वह बुद्ध के चरण छूने गया और उसने उन्हें प्रणाम किया और उसने कहा कि मैं गलती में था। प्रकाश तो था, लेकिन मेरे पास आंख नहीं थी। लेकिन बुद्ध ने कहा तू गलती में जरूर था, लेकिन तूने जिद्द की कि जब तक आंख न होगी तब तक मैं मानने को राजी न होऊंगा, तो तेरे आंख का इलाज भी हो सका। अगर तू मान लेता उन मित्रों की बात कि तुम कहते हो तो ठीक है, तो बात वहीं खत्म हो जाती। आंख के इलाज का सवाल भी नहीं उठता।
जो लोग विश्वास कर लेते हैं, वे विवेक तक नहीं पहुंच पाते। जो लोग चुपचाप स्वीकार कर लेते हैं, वे स्वयं के अनुभव तक नहीं पहुंच पाते। जो अंधे हैं और पकड़ लेते हैं कि दूसरे कहते हैं प्रकाश है तो जरूर होगा, फिर उनकी यात्रा वहीं बंद हो जाती है। यात्रा तो तब होती है जब बेचैनी बनी रहे, बनी रहे, बनी रहे, बेचैनी छूटे नहीं। और बेचैनी तभी होती है जब मुझे लगता है कि कोई चीज है, लोग कहते हैं लेकिन मुझे दिखाई नहीं पड़ती तो मैं कैसे मान लूं? मैं ही देखूं तो मानूं! यह बेचैनी मन में हो कि मेरे पास आंख हो तो मैं स्वीकार करूं।

एक अध्यापक

परीक्षा समाप्ति व परिणाम के पहेले एक शिक्षक का विद्यार्थियो के माता-पिता को पत्र.

एक शिक्षक की कलम से --

प्रिय माता-पिता,

परीक्षाऔ का दौर
लगभग समाप्ति की ओर  है।

अब आप अपने बच्चों के
रिजल्ट को लेकर
चिंतित हो रहे होंगे ।

लेकिन कृपया याद रखें,
वे सभी छात्र
जो परीक्षा में शामिल हो रहे हैं,
इनके ही बीच में

कई कलाकार भी हैं,
जिन्हें गणित में पारंगत होना
जरूरी नहीं है।

इनमें अनेकों उद्यमी भी हैं,
जिन्हें इतिहास या
अंग्रेजी साहित्य में
कुछ कठिनाई
महसूस होती होगी,
लेकिन ये ही आगे चलकर
इतिहास बदल देंगे I

इनमें संगीतकार भी हैं
जिनके लिये
रसायनशास्त्र के अंक
कोई मायने नहीं रखते ।

इनमें खिलाड़ी भी हैं,
जिनकी फिजिकल फिटनेस
फिजिक्स के अंकों से ज्यादा
महत्वपूर्ण हैं ।

यदि आपका बच्चा
मैरिट अंक प्राप्त करता है
तो ये बहुत अच्छी बात है।

लेकिन यदि वह
ऐसा नहीं कर पाता तो
उससे कृपया
उसका आत्मविश्वास न छीनें |

उसें बतायें कि
सब कुछ ठीक है
और ये सिर्फ परीक्षा ही है ।

वह जीवन में
इससे कहीं ज्यादा
बड़ी चीजों को
करने के लिये बना है |

इस बात से
कोई फर्क नहीं पड़ता कि
उसने कितना स्कोर किया है।

उसे प्यार दें
और उसके बारे में
अपना फैसला न सुनायें ।

यदि आप उसे
खुशमिज़ाज़ बनाते हैं
तो वो कुछ भी बने
उसका जीवन सफल है,

यदि वह
खुशमिज़ाज़ नहीं है
तो वो कुछ भी बन जाए,
सफल कतई नहीं है ।

कृपया ऐसा करके देखें,
आप देखेंगे कि आपका बच्चा
दुनिया जीतने में सक्षम है।

एक परीक्षा या
एक ९०% की मार्कशीट
आपके बच्चे के
सपनों का पैमाना नहीं है ।

✍ एक अध्यापक
