Affirm that you can do it. You can find a job. You can change careers. You can learn to walk again. You can recover and not spend the rest of your life in the hospital. You can make it. You can succeed. But you must first affirm. I deserve to succeed as much as anyone else.Every human being is born with one gift from God : The privilege of deserving to succeed. People aren't higher up the ladder than you are because they are more favored by God than you. You are as good as they are. And if you don't think so, then that's your problem.
You must affirm: I deserve to succeed and i have the ability to succeed. Everyone has within himself latent,innate ability. It probably needs to be honed, educated, trained and refined,but it can be done.

The reaction

A carpenter went home after shutting down his workshop, a black poisonous cobra entered his workshop.

The cobra was hungry and hoped to find its supper lurking somewhere within. It slithered from one end to another and accidentally bumped into a double-edged metal axe and got very slightly injured.

In anger and seeking revenge, the snake bit the axe with full force. What could a bite do to a metallic axe? Instead the cobra’s mouth started bleeding.

Out of fury and arrogance, the cobra tried its best to strangle and kill the object that was causing it pain by wrapping itself very tightly around the blades.

The next day when the carpenter opened the workshop, he found a seriously cut, dead cobra wrapped around the axe blades.

The cobra died not because of someone else’s fault but faced these consequences merely because of its own anger and wrath.

# Sometimes when angry, we try to cause harm to others but as time passes by, we realise that we have caused more harm to ourselves.

# For a happy life, it’s best we should learn to ignore and overlook some things, people, incidents, affairs and matters.

# It is not necessary that we show a reaction to everything. Step back and ask yourself if the matter is really worth responding or reacting to.

# Let Treat people with kindness even if they hurt you.

# People that show no inclination to change, are best handled with silence and prayer.
THIS is really a touching story and could help us take some good decisions.
Dear GOD, If I hurt someone, grant me the humility courage to ask for forgiveness.

A young lady sat in a public transport. An old grumpy lady came and sat by her side as she bumped into her with her numerous bags. The person sitting on the other side of her got upset, asking the young lady why she did not speak up and say something.

The young lady responded with a smile: "It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, the journey together is so short. I get off at the next stop."

The response deserves to be written in golden letters in our daily behaviour and everywhere:

*It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short*

If each one of us could realize that our passage down here has such a short duration; to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, not forgiving others, ingratitude and bad attitudes would be a waste of time and energy.

Did someone break your heart? Be calm, the journey is so short..

Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? Be calm, forgive, the journey is so short..

Whatever penalty anyone serves us, let's remember that our journey together is so short..

Let us therefore be filled with gratitude and sweetness. Sweetness is a virtue never likened to bad character nor cowardice, but better likened to greatness.

Our journey together down here is really short and cannot be reversed...
No one knows the duration of his journey.

No one knows if he will have to alight at the next stop..

*Let us therefore cherish and hold on to friends and family! Let us be calm, respectful, kind, thankful and forgiving to each other. If I've hurt you, I ask your forgiveness. But please remember: The journey down here is so short...*

Inner Kingdom

A king who was asked by an outsider how he was able to run his kingdom so peacefully and efficaciously. The king then invited him to tour his kingdom. As the young man set off, the king pronounced a condition. He gave the young man a burning candle and told him that no matter what, the candle should not blow out.

At the end of the day (and end of the tour) the tired man returned. The king asked how his day had been and what he had seen. The man exclaimed, “Nothing”!
“But why is that?” answered the king?
“Well, I was too busy ensuring the candle would not blow out,” replied the man.
“Aahh,” said the king. “And that is the secret to running my own kingdom. I am so busy ensuring my inner light does not extinguish that I am not entangled in the beauty of my surroundings.”

The king’s secret was he ensured the light of his consciousness did not extinguish; this allowed him to stay unaffected by the many scenes ‘outside’. He revealed that while he sees everything he sees nothing, thus he does not get caught up or too engrossed in mundane duties! In this way he is able to give more of his positive self and so his people are happy and this harmony is the oil that helps the smooth running of his kingdom.

The method of meditation is quite similar. We need not try pushing away the outer world, just as it is impossible to push out the darkness, but we can certainly focus on staying calm and peaceful, in other words, ensuring that our inner light does not blow out or ‘blow up’ as the case may be!

For a person on a spiritual path the daily practice of ‘soul consciousness’ is a must. Spiritual beings focus on soul matters, meaning, they care more about what goes on inside their spirit than the outer shell. They take pride in their inner beauty as they have learnt it’s the inner that will affect and take care of the outer.

Because they are respectful towards themselves, they are to those around them also. Because they have self-love, they have an abundance to share with all. They are considerate of the environment also and less caught up in joining the Jones’ next door.

Soul consciousness means to be in the light. Light is a vibrant energy, a profound wisdom, and a graceful, easy spirit. ‘Enlightenment’ is the realization that everything around us is a vibrating energy. The world is a physical energy; our consciousness is a subtle one and the inter-play between them is an interesting weave.

Life can also be likened to light; the living light. When the light goes off, the spirit flies off and the body has no sparkle to it. It is deemed dead, yet it is the body that is dead, not the light. Light does not die.

Virtue lightens up the soul; absence of virtue is absence of light and it is then that darkness takes over in the form of vice. Coming into the light means stepping out of the shadow of illusion; fear, ego, blame, guilt and sorrow and stepping into the eternal moment of virtue.

When we learn to master thoughts and feelings, we become in-charge of the voltage, the current, of our inner light. Joy, peace and love radiate a powerful and positive energy and we realize in that moment that we have the power to influence everything around us, like the sun. We become light-workers, spreading light into the world.

Coming into the light means connecting with the Divine, the Supreme Light, in a realm of light beyond time, space, theories and philosophies. This is our timeless Home of Light.

It’s time… to practice running our inner kingdom with our soul fully illuminated. A kingdom without light is no kingdom at all! Step into the light of virtue. Become a light-worker, spreading light all around. Return to soul conscious throughout the day and you will radiate a different light – the inner bulb!

ईश्वर देगा

एक बार एक राजा था, वह जब भी मंदिर जाता, तो 2 भिखारी उसके दाएं और बाएं बैठा करते...दाईं तरफ़ वाला कहता:"हे ईश्वर, तूने राजा को बहुत कुछ दिया है, मुझे भी दे दे.!" बाईं तरफ़ वाला कहता: "ऐ राजा.! ईश्वर ने तुझे बहुत कुछ दिया है, मुझे भी कुछ दे दे.!" दाईं तरफ़ वाला भिखारी बाईं तरफ़ वाले से कहता: ईश्वर से माँग वह सबकी सुनने वाला है..बाईं तरफ़ वाला जवाब देता: "चुप कर मुर्ख.." एक बार राजा ने अपने मंत्री को बुलाया और कहा कि मंदिर में दाईं तरफ जो भिखारी बैठता है वह हमेशा ईश्वर से मांगता है तो अवश्य ईश्वर उसकी ज़रूर सुनेगा..लेकिन जो बाईं तरफ बैठता है वह हमेशा मुझसे फ़रियाद करता रहता है, तो तुम ऐसा करो कि एक बड़े से बर्तन में खीर भर के उसमें स्वर्ण मुद्रा डाल दो और वह उसको दे आओ.! मंत्री ने ऐसा ही किया.. अब वह भिखारी मज़े से खीर खाते-खाते दूसरे भिखारी को चिड़ाता हुआ बोला: "हुह... बड़ा आया ईश्वर देगा..', यह देख राजा से माँगा, मिल गया ना.?"  खाते खाते जब इसका पेट भर गया तो इसने बची हुई खीर का बर्तन उस दूसरे भिखारी को दे दिया और कहा: "ले पकड़... तू भी खाले, मुर्ख.."अगले दिन जब राजा आया तो देखा कि बाईं तरफ वाला भिखारी तो आज भी वैसे ही बैठा है लेकिन दाईं तरफ वाला ग़ायब है..राजा नें चौंक कर उससे पूछा: "क्या तुझे खीर से भरा बर्तन नहीं मिला.?" भिखारी: "जी मिला था राजा जी, क्या स्वादिस्ट खीर थी, मैंने ख़ूब पेट भर कर खायी.!" राजा: "फिर..?!!?"  भिखारी: "फ़िर जब मेरा पेट भर गया तो वह जो दूसरा भिखारी यहाँ बैठता है मैंने उसको दे दी, मुर्ख हमेशा कहता रहता है: ' ईश्वर देगा, ईश्वर देगा.!' ले खा ले! राजा मुस्कुरा कर बोला: "अवश्य ही, ईश्वर ने उसे दे दिया.!"

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." Always thank God  And Stay blessed.

Better person

Can u judge who is the better person out of these 3 ?

Mr A - He had friendship with bad politicians, consults astrologers, two wives, chain smoker, drinks eight to 10 times a day.

Mr B - He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps till noon, used opium in college & drinks whiskey every evening.

Mr C - He is a decorated war hero,a vegetarian, doesn't smoke , doesn't drink  and never cheated on his wife.

You would say Mr.C


Mr. A was Franklin Roosevelt! ( 32nd President of the USA)

Mr. B was Winston Churchill!! (Former British Prime Minister)


Strange but true..
Its risky to judge anyone by his habits !
Character is a complex phenomenon.

So every person in ur life is important ,don't judge them ,accept them.
Three beautiful thoughts 

1. None can destroy iron, but its own rust can!
Likewise, none can destroy a person, but his own mindset can.

2. Ups and downs in life are very important to keep us going, because a straight line even in an E.C.G. means we are not alive.

3. The same Boiling Water that hardens the egg, Will Soften the Potato
It depends upon Individual's reaction To stressful circumstances!

Enjoy the journey called life…

The Styles

In Hindu mythology there are two great epics. One is called Ramayan and other is called Mahabharata. The centre story of both these books is around victory of good on evil. In one story Lord Ram leads his army to defeat Ravana in his land,
While in the second Lord Krishna oversees Pandavas defeat Kauravas in the battle at Kurushektra.

In Ramayan, Lord Ram is the best yodhaa of his side.
He leads his army from the front. Strategizes & directs different people to do things which will meet the objectives. His people are happy to follow orders & want to get all the appreciation for being the best executors. Lord Ram set direction & also tells people what to do during difficult times.

Ultimately they won the war & the final outcome was achieved.

On the other hand Lord Krishna told Arjuna, I won’t fight the battle. I won’t pick up any weapon; I would only be there on ur chariot as a charioteer. And he did what he said. He never picked up the weapon & he never fought.

Still, Pandavas won the war & final outcome was achieved.

So, what was different? It was their managerial style & it was also the type of people who were being lead.
Lord Ram was leading an army of ‘MONKEYS’ who were not skilled fighters & they were looking for direction. While on other hand,

Lord Krishna was leading Arjuna who was one of the best archer of his time. While Lord Ram’s role was to show it & lead from the front,

Krishna played the role of a coach whose job was to remove cobwebs from his protégée’s mind. Krishna couldn't teach Arjuna archery but he could definitely help him see things from a very different perspective.

*Here are some of the basic differences in two styles:*

*Lord Ram- A skilled warrior, lead monkeys, was emotional, gave precise roles & instructions, motivated the army to fight for his cause*

*Lord Krishna: works with best the professionals, provides strategic clarity, allows team members to take lead, fights for the cause of the team, did not depict his true emotions*

*Look at ur team/family & reflect what type of leader/parent u are, One who keeps answering/solving problems for people/kids  Or Who asks relevant questions from their people/kids so that they can find their own solution.*

*Are u someone who tells/directs all the time  Or*
*Someone who clarifies doubts & allows their people/kids to find their own ways.*

Are u someone who has monkeys in the team & the way u deal with it Or u have the brightest experts in their area getting stuck with issues? 

*Younger generation doesn't want you to tell or show how things are done, they want to know the meaning of their task and how it makes a difference in this world.*

They are Arjuna’s who don’t necessarily seek more skill/knowledge but they need someone to clarify the cobwebs in their mind, if u still apply Lord Ram’s style on them, u are bound to fail as a manager.

On the other hand if there are people who aren't skilled enough but rely on ur expertise to sail u through Lord Ram’s style is appropriate.

Isn't it good for us to reflect & think what managerial style will bring the best result for u and ur team/family ?

Is it Lord Ram or Lord Krishna?
