Blooming Roses

As these roses are blooming silently and taking its own time
You too start blooming in silence
Only in silence, one can bloom...
Accept life as it comes to you
Absorb it with opened hands
Enjoy what existence is giving you
Take your time in enjoying it.....
Appreciate it...
Love it....
Laugh with it....
Dance with it....
Feel the presence of the wind
Caressing your body
Feel the presence of the sun
Radiating your body
Feel the presence of the moon
Changing you into a mirror
Listen to the drops of water
How it takes its own time, drop by drop
Enjoy that gap between the two drops
That silence...
Bring that silence within you
At start, it will be like gaps
Then slowly, slowly,
That gap of silence will extend
One day, you will suddenly find that
You are Silence...........
Full of fragrance
Radiating your own light
You'll be a mirror
Living spontaneously
Celebrating every moment

The Wise Man and The Young Man........................

There was once an old wise man who live on top of a mountain. Whenever the villagers had a problem, they would climb up the mountain and ask the old man for advice. One day a young man decided to climb up and ask the old man a question.

“Wise man,” he asked, “What makes a man truly great?”

The old man looked at him and said, “Do you sincerely want to know?”

“Yes, yes!” the young man replied the wise man.

“Well,” the wise old man said to him, “Let me tell you in the form of a story”

There was once a Greek man who suffered from a deadly disease. Knowing that he will die soon, he was the first to join the army when his country was in a battle with the enemy. Hoping to die in battle, he would fight in the front line, exposing himself without any worry for his life. Eventually they won the battle and he was still alive. His general was so impressed with his bravery which contributed much to the victory.

The general decided to promote him and award him with medals of bravery and honor. On the day of presentation, he was looking very down and sad. Curiously, the general asked him the reason why and was told of his deadly disease. “How could I let such a brave soldier die?”, the general thought. So the general hired the best physician and finally cured the soldier. But from that day onwards, the once valiant soldier was no longer seen at the front. He would always avoid danger and tries his best to avoid danger and protect his life.

“Young man”, the wise man said, “if you want to be truly great, you must not be scared of dying, you must be daring.”

ACCEPT AS IT COMES TO U...........................

There was a farmer in the central region of China. He didn't have a lot of money and, instead of a tractor, he used an old horse to plow his field.

One afternoon, while working in the field, the horse dropped dead. Everyone in the village said, "Oh, what a horrible thing to happen." The farmer said simply, "We'll see." He was so at peace and so calm, that everyone in the village got together and, admiring his attitude, gave him a new horse as a gift.

Everyone's reaction now was, "What a lucky man." And the farmer said, "We'll see."
A couple days later, the new horse jumped a fence and ran away. Everyone in the village shook their heads and said, "What a poor fellow!"
The farmer smiled and said, "We'll see."
Eventually, the horse found his way home, and everyone again said, "What a fortunate man."
The farmer said, "We'll see."

Later in the year, the farmer's young boy went out riding on the horse and fell and broke his leg. Everyone in the village said, "What a shame for the poor boy."
The farmer said, "We'll see."

Two days later, the army came into the village to draft new recruits. When they saw that the farmer's son had a broken leg, they decided not to recruit him.
Everyone said, "What a fortunate young man."
The farmer smiled again - and said "We'll see."

Moral of the story: There's no use in overreacting to the events and circumstances of our everyday lives. Many times what looks like a setback, may actually be a gift in disguise. And when our hearts are in the right place, all events and circumstances are gifts that we can learn valuable lessons from.

Why It Is So Hard To Let Go.................

The cheerful girl with bouncy golden curls was almost five. Waiting with her mother at the checkout stand, she saw them: a circle of glistening white pearls in a pink foil box.

"Oh please, Mommy. Can I have them? Please, Mommy, please?"

Jenny, finally, bought it and she loved her pearls. They made her feel dressed up and grown up. She wore them everywhere - Sunday school, kindergarten, even to bed. The only time she took them off was when she went swimming or had a bubble bath. Mother said if they got wet, they might turn her neck green.

Jenny had a very loving daddy and every night when she was ready for bed, he would stop
whatever he was doing and come upstairs to read her a story. One night when he finished the story, he asked Jenny, "Do you love me?" "Oh yes, Daddy. You know that I love you." "Then give me your pearls." "Oh, Daddy, not my pearls. But you can have Princess - the white horse from my collection. The one with the pink tail. Remember, Daddy? The one you gave me. She's my favorite." "That's okay, Honey. Daddy loves you. Good night." And he brushed her cheek with a kiss.

About a week later, after the story time, Jenny's daddy asked again, "Do you love me?" "Daddy, you know I love you." "Then give me your pearls." "Oh Daddy, not my pearls. But you can have my baby doll. The brand new one I got for my birthday. She is so beautiful and you can have the yellow blanket that matches her sleeper." "That's okay. Sleep well. God bless you, little one. Daddy loves you" And as always, he brushed her cheek with a gentle kiss.

A few nights later when her daddy came in, Jenny was sitting on her bed with her legs crossed Indian-style. As he came close, he noticed her chin was trembling and one silent tear rolled down her cheek. "What is it, Jenny? What's the matter?" Jenny didn't say anything but lifted her little hand up to her daddy. And when she opened it, there was her little pearl necklace. With a little quiver, she finally said, "Here, Daddy. It's for you."

With tears gathering in his own eyes, Jenny's kind daddy reached out with one hand to take the dime-store necklace, and with the other hand he reached into his pocket and pulled out a blue velvet case with a strand of genuine pearls and gave them to Jenny. He had them all the time. He was just waiting for her to give up the dime-store stuff so he could give her genuine treasure.

So it is with our Heavenly Father. He is waiting for us to give up the cheap things in our lives so that he can give us beautiful treasure.

Are you holding onto things which God wants you to let go of. Are you holding on to harmful or unnecessary partners, relationships, habits and activities which you have come so attached to that it seems impossible to let go? Sometimes it is so hard to see what is in the other hand but do believe this one thing.............

God will never take away something without giving you something better in ....

The Importance of Self Expression

Express Yourself

Mostly people nowadays speak about many topics during the day, such as, finance, work, travelling, problems, and many others. All these are only on the outside of a person. Within many things are happening, such as, anger, love, emotions, hatred, jealousy, revenge, desires, and many more.

We have always listened to our thoughts and express them in words. Many times we see also that even what we have said is not good, but at that time, as the thought appeared, the words are there. This happens due to lack of awareness. Mostly we take into consideration our thoughts rather than what our hearts wish to say.

Try this.

Listen to your heart and try to express it in words as far as possible. Many people find it rather impossible but in fact it is not impossible. Practice makes perfect, we all know it. Even if you cannot express all, try by only with few words, but do start doing it. You will find that you are expressing your feelings, and while you are expressing it in words, your face itself is crystal clear....because this is your true nature....a radiating face....speaking the truth from within. You will feel very light as if everything that was within has come out. Just go on expressing as long as you can and at the end, you will feel that there's nothing to are peaceful from within.....silence is there..........

The words from within will be like a flow as you practice on and on......

As, when you listen to thoughts, there's mostly negative thoughts that appear in your mind. Best is, as far as possible, don't listen to your thoughts. Divert your mind always to listen to your heart. Try it. You will feel the positive change in you......

Everyone nowadays is working hard for wealth. Most people are doing extra work to accumulate wealth. More you get, more you desire...a never ending process. Everyday new things are added in your list of purchase. You are never satisfied, even how much you have, still the desire is here to get more and more. During this running after wealth, more energy is being drained, health is deteriorated. Still you are not conscious about the torture you are doing to your physical body. The physical body is a temple. It's delicate and you have to take care of it. This body is more precious than wealth.

We do need wealth but we have to be fit also. Without a good health, we won't be able to work. We have to live a well balanced life. If everything is well balanced, then wealth is here, health is here, happiness is here. Nowadays most people are in the rush to be richer and richer without considering the bad effect it will cause to their health. This physical body is not a robot.

God has given this physical body to you for other purpose. Every moment, He is whispering within you, reminding you why you are here for, but you don't care about that. You are too busy with your material life and you think that you are doing the right thing. Every action you do, you see the reaction coming to you after.   But still you continue on doing it.

God has given you this physical body. God has given you the oxygen you breathe. God has given you Cosmic Energy for the movements of your body. Still you find that all this is yours and you forget Him. If all of a sudden, He takes out oxygen and Cosmic Energy from this physical body, then what will be your state. What will you do with your wealth. Even with your wealth, you won't be able to buy all these. With your wealth, you are limited. You can't buy everything with this.

So why not try the unlimited. God is unlimited. Come back to Him. Be more aware of your existence. Come so close to God that one day, all of a sudden, you find that you don't exist, only God is. This is possible for everyone here. This is the purpose of life. The merging with God. More you go far from Him, more you will suffer and when you are one with Him, then you are blissful forever.

Thoughts come one by one in a sequence in the mind of people...after one thought, another one is already ready to pop in. You can't find even a small gap between two thoughts in a chattering mind. This is why nowadays almost everyone is tensed. 

Thoughts are the greatest hindrance of all. The mind is busy either in the past or in the future. When one lives in the present moment, thought is absent. Thoughts are linked with emotions, anger, greed, jealousy, lust, hatred, revenge, and many others.

Everyone says that we need peace of mind and what is peace of mind?

Peace of mind can be described as a silent mind. Only a silent mind is peaceful. One with a silent mind has no thoughts, only bliss is present. He is far away from sufferings. He is not connected at all with the ego and thoughts. In that silent mind only the most important thought appears otherwise the mind is completely empty with thoughts.... it is filled with bliss. The one whose mind is silent is the greatest enjoyer. He is spontaneous in his actions. Reactions are forever absent. Reactions are there till thoughts and ego are present. That thought that appears in the silent mind, we can't say that it is a thought as it is far beyond that. A silent mind is beyond the mind of thoughts. 

He lives in the present moment only. Every moment is a celebration for him. for every moment is fresh, new, for him. He is not attached to the past or future. No accumulation of thoughts is there in the mind. He remains blissful always. He is full of compassion. Light radiates from his physical body. He sees everything in this material world as an illusion. He lives in the inner world....and yet he is here in this material world in the physical body just because of compassion for others.

Everyone can reach this state by meditation.

Here, i have tried to describe how one lives in a silent mind but it is beyond words....very difficult to describe in can only feel can only know it by himself....i have tried to show you the difference...i can only show u the way...but you have to experience know It.................

If we search in the dictionary the meaning of enlightenment, it is as follows:
~ Knowledge about and understanding of something; the process of understanding something or making somebody understand itfor example: The newspapers provided little enlightenment about the cause of the accident.Many people nowadays are still in the belief that the knowledge and understanding of their surroundings or having understood some meaning of words and statements is Enlightenment.The real Enlightenment happens when one experiences the absence of the Ego forever. When one is enlightened, he starts living in a state of Bliss. He has no thoughts in the mind. He does only actions. No reactions are there. Insults from others, anger from others, and other miseries can't affect him as he is not the ego. It is the ego which gets hurt, which suffers from others misbehaviors, which is angry, revengeful, greedy, proud, money minded and many others. But when one is enlightened, one sees all these like a movie, passing before his eyes without affecting him. He just watches what is happening in his surroundings and that's all. No reactions. He is back here without the ego for only one purpose and this purpose is to help others to reach this state of being. But very few can recognize him as his physical body is only an instrument of the Lord. The only recognition of an enlightened one is feeling his presence and for that one has to go within himself deeper and deeper to find the difference between an enlightened one and others. This presence is felt as Energy. If you are receptive, you will feel your body absorbing that Energy. It is so powerful that you will know that there's a difference. In other words you can say it's like a very powerful electric shock that passes through your body. The enlightened one lives a very simple life though he may have a big house, he may have cars, he may have bank balance, but he is not at all attached with all these. His compassion for people has brought him back here. He shares his experiences, he shares his overflowing Energy, he shares his unconditional love with you all and in return what he asks is only your own Enlightenment.Still people don't understand it, that the enlightened ones have come back here to help only. Who is going to miss? The Enlightened one has already gained all, he does not expect anything from you. Only he wants to help you to come out of this sufferings. He wants you to be always Blissful.Wake up at least now. Don't be engrossed so much in this material net that later you will regret. The choice is yours. Staying in this material net and suffer or diving into the Inner World and be the Ultimate Bliss.

BLOSSOM LIKE THIS LOTUS FLOWER........................

Lotus flowers are amazing and have strong symbolic ties to many Asian religions especially throughout India. The lotus flower starts as a small flower down at the bottom of a pond in the mud and muck. It slowly grows up towards the waters surface continually moving towards the light. Once it come to the surface of the water the lotus flower begins to blossom and turn into a beautiful flower.

Within Hinduism and Buddhism the lotus flower has become a symbol for awakening to the spiritual reality of life. 

Every person has the potential to become perfect and enlightened, and it is just a matter of time until each human reaches the light or nirvana – the highest state of consciousness that humans can access.

The journey of the consciousness from spiritual ignorance to perfection happens through many rebirths and can be very painful and difficult, as the process of reincarnation involves the need to repair past mistakes at every new life and one faces the consequences of every action, thought and words. While humans are not conscious of their spiritual greatness, they believe that life is unfair and worthless, but as they evolve through many cycles of death and rebirth, all the darkness is slowly removed.

The moment in which a being reaches nirvana is symbolized by the time that the Lotus flower finally blossoms beautifully over the dirty water, as the water in many different belief systems represents the material world or the physical realm.

So, Buddha is sometimes depicted sitting on a Lotus flower, symbolizing the one who overcame the pain of that prevails in the material world and became enlightened, just like the Lotus flower which starts to grow in the dirty and muddy water but manages to surpass the water and produce a perfect flower. Many Hindu gods are depicted sitting or standing on a Lotus flower for the same reason.

It is an invitation to all of you to come and dive in the inner world, where you will feel detached of all the miseries of this material world.

Every time i go Home
i feel like staying there
not returning here again

but i can hear calls from here
asking me to return back

i can hear the calls
from far away

sometimes i stay there longer
even when i hear calls from here

but still have to return back
for compassion brings me back


living in both
this illusion home
and real home

Life Explained

A boat docked in a tiny village. A tourist complimented the fisherman on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took him to catch them.

"Not very long," answered the fisherman.

"But then, why didn't you stay out longer and catch more?" asked the tourist.

The fisherman explained that his small catch was sufficient to meet his needs and those of his family.

The tourist asked, "But what do you do with the rest of your time?"

"I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, and take a siesta with my wife. In the evenings, I go into the village to see my friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs. I have a full life."

The tourist interrupted, "I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help you! You should start by fishing longer every day. You can then sell the extra fish you catch. With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger boat."

"And after that?" asked the fisherman.

"With the extra money the larger boat will bring, you can buy a second one and a third one and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers. Instead of selling your fish to a middle man, you can then negotiate directly with the processing plants and maybe even open your own plant. You can then leave this little village and move to Mexico City, Los Angeles, or even New York City! From there you can direct your huge new enterprise."

"How long would that take?" asked the fisherman.

"Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years," replied the tourist.

"And after that?"

"Afterwards? Well my friend, that's when it gets really interesting," answered the tourist, laughing. "When your business gets really big, you can start buying and selling stocks and make millions!"

"Millions? Really? And after that?" asked the fisherman.

"After that you'll be able to retire, live in a tiny village near the coast, sleep late, play with your children, catch a few fish, take a siesta with your wife and spend your evenings drinking and enjoying your friends." 

This is what is happening to everyone...waiting for being richer and richer....And after all has been achieved...still happiness, peace, are missing...why...because u r thinking that being rich, will make u happy....but it's not true....even when u become richer than anyone else...u won't find happiness as happiness is already within u....u just have to realize it.....

Everything u r searching in this material world is just a within u the real treasure is there.....go and dig deeper within yourself......u'll find that u r more richer than this material richness....beyond all....

................When He Himself Reveals Himself.................


When he himself reveals himself, Brahma brings into manifestation That which can never be seen.
As the seed is in the plant, as the shade is in the tree, as the void is in the sky, as infinite forms are in the void-
So from beyond the Infinite, the Infinite comes; and from the Infinite the finite extends.

The creature is in Brahma, and Brahma is in the creature: they are ever distinct, yet ever united.
He Himself is the tree, the seed, and the germ.
He Himself is the flower, the fruit, and the shade.
He Himself is the sun, the light, and the lighted.
He Himself is Brahma, creature, and Maya.
He Himself is the manifold form, the infinite space;
He is the breath, the word, and the meaning.
He Himself is the limit and the limitless: and beyond both the limited and the limitless is He, the Pure Being.
He is the Immanent Mind in Brahma and in the creature.

The Supreme Soul is seen within the soul,
The Point is seen within the Supreme Soul,
And within the Point, the reflection is seen again.

............Drowning Man..............

While out to sea, a large boat became shipwrecked and there was only a single survivor. This man prayed and asked God to save his life. Soon thereafter, another boat came by and offered the man some help.

"No thanks," he said. "I'm waiting for God to save me."

The men on the boat shrugged their shoulders and continued. As the man became more deeply concerned, another boat came by. Again, the people aboard offered this man some help, and again he politely decline. "I'm waiting for God to save me," he said again.

After some time, the man began to lose his faith, and soon after that he died. He then asked God, briefly.

"Why did you let me die? Why didn't you answer my prayers?"

"Dummy, I sent you two boats!"

The Universe is always watching out for the best interests of our spiritual evolution, even when we are too narrowly focused to see all the other opportunities it presents us. All that is needed is a change of perspective.


The Battle Within

An old Cherokee describes an experience going on inside himself....

"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. 

This same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
