Problems

Problems in Life like this -


Hold it for few minutes in your head - it is ok.
Think of them for a long time - headache starts.
Hold it even for a longer time or ever - they will begin to paralyse your thoughts.  


So? Let us analyse our problems and worries dispose then and there, either ignore or take immediate action or allow some time or once for all leave it to god, since for some problems we don't have solution.

Silence


Growing seed makes, no sound;

But falling tree makes, huge noise;
Destruction has noise;
Creation is always quiet;
This is the power of Silence;

Relationship






Life is not about finding the right person, 
but creating the right relationship.
 
It's not how we care in the beginning, 

but how much we care till the very end.

All yourself ...


Trying to do it all yourself leads to
frustration, exhaustion, and failure.

While it is important to be
responsible and self-reliant, it is
equally important to be open to
receive support. 

Everything in nature
gives to other living beings ; we
cannot do it alone.

Mind our own business!


We should mind our own business. If not?  


A person was walking fast near a mental hospital. He heard a sound, shouting, 11,  11,  11, .....

The hospital's compound wall height was too high. But there was a small gap in the wall.

Through the gap he looked in to the hospital, what was going on.

Suddenly one poked his eye with a stick. Now he heard a new shouting as 12, 12,  12 .....

Leader


          
          A leader is best when people barely know he exists… He acts without unnecessary speech and when the work is done. The people say we did it overselves.

Apology


Seeking apology is not always you are wrong and other person is right.


It just means you value your relationship more than your ego.

Boss


Standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand, "Listen," said the CEO, "this is a very sensitive and important document, and my secretary has left. Can you make this thing work?" 

"Certainly," said the young executive. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button. "Excellent, excellent!" said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside the shredder machine. He further asked "I just need one copy"!
"MORAL OF THE STORY : "NEVER, NEVER ASSUME THAT YOUR BOSS KNOWS EVERYTHING"

Appa, Amma



எப்படி எப்படி எல்லாமோ தன் பாசம் உணர்த்துவாள் அம்மா-ஒரேயொரு கைஅழுத்தத்தில் எல்லாமே உணர்த்துவார் அப்பா.  

முன்னால் சொன்னதில்லை பிறர் சொல்லித்தான் கேட்டிருக்கிறேன் என்னைப் பற்றி பெருமையாகஅப்பா பேசிக்கொண்டிருந்ததை... 

அம்மா எத்தனையோ முறை திட்டினாலும் உறைத்ததில்லை

உடனே உறைத்திருக்கிறது என்றேனும் அப்பா முகம் வாடும் போது .. 


உன் அப்பா எவ்வளவு உற்சாகமாக இருக்கிறார் தெரியுமா என என் நண்பர்கள் என்னிடமே சொல்லும் போதுதான் எனக்குத் தெரிந்தது எத்தனை பேருக்குக்கிடைக்காத தந்தை எனக்கு மட்டும் என...  

சிறுவயதில் என் கைப்பிடித்து நடைபயில சொல்லிக்கொடுத்த அப்பா என் கரம் பிடித்து நடந்த போது என்ன நினைத்திருப்பார்.. 

லேசாக என் கால் தடுமாறினாலும் பதறும் அப்பா இன்று நான் தடுமாறிய போது பதறாமல் இருக்கிறார் மீளா துயிலில்... 

அம்மா செல்லமா அப்பா செல்லமா என கேட்டபோதெல்லாம் பெருமையாகச் சொல்லி இருக்கிறேன் அம்மா செல்லமான அப்பா செல்லம் என இன்று அப்பா சென்ற பின்னர்நான் யார் செல்லம்.. 

எத்தனையோ பேர் நான் இருக்கிறேன் எனச் சொன்னாலும் அப்பாவை போல் யார் இருக்க முடியும்.. 

சொல்லிக் கொடுத்ததில்லை திட்டியதும் இல்லை, இல்லை என்றும் சொன்னதுமில்லை, வேண்டாம் எனக்கூறியதும் இல்லை இருந்தும் ஏதோ ஒன்றினால் கட்டுப்படுத்தியதுஅப்பாவின் அன்பு 

நானும் காட்டியதில்லை அவரும் காட்டியதில்லை எங்கள் பாசத்தை... இருந்தும் காட்டிக் கொடுத்த கண்ணீரைத் துடைக்க இன்றுஅப்பாவும் இல்லை.. 


அம்மாவிடம் பாசத்தையும் அப்பாவிடம் நேசத்தையும் இன்றே உணர்த்துங்கள்.

Happening for a reason

Every day we face different, different situations, something as we expected and something totally different. If happened as expected we feel we are intelligent, we know everything and if it is otherway we start worrying. We forget that we only can propose and god only will dispose - we only can act, the result is not in our hands. 

We only can do our duty, rest is with god, but our act should not hurt others. Every thing happening for a reason -

There was a sweeper in a well known temple and he was very sincere and devoted. Every time he saw thousands of devotees coming to take darshan of the Lord, he thought that the Lord is standing all the time and giving darshan and he must be feeling very tired.


So one day very innocently, he asked the Lord whether he can take the place of the Lord for a day so that the Lord can have some relief and rest.
The Deity of Temple replied, "I do not mind taking a break. I will transform you like Myself, but you must do one thing. you must just stand here like Me, smile at everyone and just give benedictions. Do not interfere with anything and do not say anything. Remember you are the deity and you just have faith that I have a master plan for everything. " The sweeper agreed to this. 



The next day the sweeper took the position of the deity and a rich man came and prayed to the Lord. He offered a nice donation and prayed that his business should be prosperous. While going, the rich man inadvertently left his wallet full of money right there. Now the sweeper in the form of deity could not call him and so he decided to control himself and keep quiet. 



Just then a poor man came and he put one coin in the Hundi and said that it was all he could afford and he prayed to the Lord that he should continue to be engaged in the Lord's service. He also said that his family was in dire need of some basic needs but he left it to the good hands of the Lord to give some solution. When he opened his eyes, he saw the wallet left by the rich man. The poor man thanked the Lord for His kindness and took the wallet very innocently. The sweeper in the form of the Deity could not say anything and he had to just keep smiling. 



At that point a sailor walked in. He prayed for his safe journey as he was going on a long trip. Just then the rich man came with the police and said that somebody has stolen his wallet and seeing the sailor there, he asked the police to arrest him thinking that he might have taken it. Now the sweeper in the form of Deity wanted to say that the sailor is not the thief but he could not say so and he became greatly frustrated. The sailor looked at the Lord and asked why he, an innocent person, is being punished.

The rich man looked at the Lord and thanked Him for finding the thief. The sweeper in the deity form could no more tolerate and he thought that even if the real Lord had been here, he would have definitely interfered and hence he started speaking and said that the sailor is not the thief but
it was the poor man who took away the wallet. The rich man was very thankful as also the sailor. 



In the night, the real Lord came and He asked the sweeper how the day was. 
The sweeper said, "I thought it would be easy, but but now I know that Your days are not easy, 
but I did one good thing." Then he explained the whole episode to the Lord. The Lord became very upset on hearing this whereas the sweeper thought the Lord would appreciate him for the good deed done. 




The Lord asked, "Why did you not just stick to the plan? You had no faith in Me. Do you think that I do not understand the hearts of all those who come here? All the donation which the rich man gave was all stolen money and it is only a fraction of what he really has and he wants Me to reciprocate unlimitedly. 

The single coin offered by the poor man was the last coin he was having and he gave it to Me out of faith. The sailor might not have done anything wrong, but if the sailor were to go in the ship that night he was about to die because of bad weather and instead if he is arrested he would be in the jail and he would have been saved form a greater calamity.

The wallet should go to the poor man because he will use it in My service.
I was going to reduce the rich man's karma also by doing this and save the sailor also. But you cancelled everything because you thought you know My plan and you made your own plans."

Moral - 

God has plans and justice for everyone ! 


God will take care of us, as in the picture !!
We just have to have patience !!!

Calm


Coin always makes sound,
but the currency notes are always silent.

So when your value increases

keep yourself calm and silent.

HUMILIATION


Queen Victoria was once at a diplomatic reception in London.
The guest of honor was an African chieftain. 
All went well during the meal until, at the end, finger bowls 
were served. The guest of honor had never seen a British finger bowl, 
and no one had thought to brief him beforehand about its purpose. 
So he took the bowl in his two hands, lifted it to his mouth, 
and drank its contents down!


For an instant there was breathless silence among the 
British privilege guests, and then they began to whisper 
to one another. All that stopped; however, 
when Queen Victoria silently took her finger bowl 
in her two hands, lifted it, and drank its contents! 


A moment later, 500 surprised British ladies and gentlemen 
simultaneously drank the contents of their own finger bowls.  
It was the queen’s uncommon courtesy that 
guarded her guest from certain embarrassment. 

Very rare, very effective human trait which only true leaders can 
demonstrate!


While the most common human trait is to look for chances to 
humiliate someone else or be neutral when they make a mistake, 
it takes presence of mind, uncommon courtesy to follow someone 
else’s mistake in order to guard them from embarrassment!

Think simple

We complicate many things because of our own imagination. 


Simple solutions are available, if we think calm and with open mind.


If... 

1=5
2=25
3=125
4=625
5=??? 

  

Think, think before see the answer! 

 
Answer,
.........
......
....
...
..


"1"   



Things are not so complicated as we think, only tolerance and adjustment is required in life.

Popularity

Aspiring to be a popular person or famous person results in continuous stress and anxiety. After reaching fame, we suffer to retain the fame. In the process we are forced to compromise certain things which is not warranted. Reaching fame takes care of our image but not our soul. 

If things are done in a routine way, there will not be any expectation of popularity and no stress or anxiety.



Let us be sincere to our consciousness, we will get whatever we deserve.

Face reflections


There was a place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit. When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could. 

To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and friendly. As he left the house, he thought to himself, "This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often."

In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he left, he thought to himself, "That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again." 

All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet depends on you. You have a choice!

Be constructive


Peace of mind begins in life only when we stop comparing and expecting a better one each time. We compare our colleagues in employment, our relatives, our neighbours, friends etc. Forgetting our present, we imagine the future and develop expectations. When things do not happen as expected, we get frustrated.

Let us believe that if we deserve we will get. Its our part to be constructive, harmless and concerned.

Need not be serious

Life is like a race in our childhood where we will run with a spoon and lemon. If the lemon falls, there is no point in coming first in the race.

There is no point in having wealth without health, relationships, mental peace. Each one is important. Let our goals be a balanced one for a successful life.

Many times we err in expecting perfection to the core and loose peace of mind.

We need not be serious for everything , but we need to be sincere.
