Learn to Reach Out

Not many of us are blessed with a family who has always been there for us. Not many of us have loads of
friends whom we can count on to see us through the darkest and loneliest of  days.

But few of us could ever complain that we have not been given any opportunity to reach out and care for people within our reach.

We need not look far to find lonely people. We need not walk long to brighten someone else’s day. We
need only to open our eyes and see. We need only to open our hands and reach out. How many people do
you meet everyday? Whether you are working at a business district, a wet market, a school, a shop, a construction area, a store, or even at home, there are always people within your reach. And sometimes,
all we need is a smile to bring a little warmth in another person’s day.

Feel Free

When you move beyond your fear, you feel free.

– Spencer Johnson

A Person's Vision

In life, many thoughts are born in the course of a moment, an hour, a day. Some are dreams, some visions. Often, we are unable to distinguish between them. To some, they are the same; however, not all dreams are visions. Much energy is lost in fanciful dreams that never bear fruit. But visions are messages from the Great Spirit, each for a different purpose in life. Consequently, one person's vision may not be that of another. To have a vision, one must be prepared to receive it, and when it comes, to accept it. Thus when these inner urges become reality, only then can visions be fulfilled. The spiritual side of life knows everyone's heart and who to trust. How could a vision ever be given to someone to harbor if that person could not be trusted to carry it out. The message is simple: commitment precedes vision.

Make Children Do Better

Where did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children do better, first we have to make them feel worse? Think of the last time you felt humiliated or treated unfairly. Did you feel like cooperating or doing better?

Focus On Wrong Things

Many people focus on the wrong things in life; such as, possessions and pleasing others. As it stands, our emotions are often in turmoil, because we fret over what we can’t control. Instead, you should focus on what you can control - YOU. Just work on being the best you can be – this is more than enough.

Your Power to Choose

Each of us has been granted the power to choose "We each possess the power to choose what to believe or not to believe" We each have an inalienable right and undeniable ability to make the choices that will ultimately determine our lives" If your current beliefs aren’t supporting the type of life that you choose to live, you have the ability to choose to form new beliefs that will

If you choose to believe that you have no control over the things that happen in your life from day to day, your outcomes will continue to manifest exactly as they have, based on that belief "If the beliefs that you have established are based on what someone else has taught you, and you find that those beliefs aren't serving you, you have the power to choose to find new information which allows you to decide for yourself if that information is correct

If you are not living the kind of life that you were intended and created to live, and have the right to enjoy, it is within your power to choose to change it
"You have the free will to choose a life of Abundance and Happiness"

Your day to day choices determine your outcomes in life "Whether or not you choose to believe it is also, your choice" It is extremely important, if you are to ever experience the life that you deserve and were created to enjoy that you choose wisely"

That too is your choice

Positive Approach Towards Life

There come many situations in our life that make us lose hope. But it is our responsibility to see a ray of hope through every instance in our life. It is easy to do so if you have motivational sayings with you. These sayings would help you gain a positive approach towards life.

Why should we think upon things that are lovely? Because thinking determines life. It is a common habit to blame life upon the environment. Environment modifies life but does not govern life. The soul is stronger than its surroundings.

- William James

Impossible Thinking

The only place where your dream becomes impossible is in your own thinking.

Health and Happiness

Since you alone are responsible for your thoughts, only you can change them. You will want to change them when you realize that each thought creates according to its own nature. Remember that the law works at all times and that you are always demonstrating according to the kind of thoughts you habitually entertain. Therefore, start now to think only those thoughts that will bring you health and happiness.

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep - comfort in grief

The Rules of Being Human

You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for as long as you live. How you take care of it or fail to take care of it can make an enormous difference in the quality of your life.

You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time, informal school called Life. Each day, you will be presented with opportunities to learn what you need to know. The lessons presented are often completely different from those you think you need.

There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error and experimentation. You can learn as much from failure as you can from success. Maybe more.

A lesson is repeated until it is learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it (as evidenced by a change in your attitude and ultimately your behavior) then you can go on to the next lesson.

Learning lessons does not end. There is no stage of life that does not contain some lessons. As long as you live there will be something more to learn.

“There” is no better than “here”. When your “there” has become a “here” you will simply discover another “there” that will again look better than your “here.” Don’t be fooled by believing that the unattainable is better than what you have.

Others are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself. When tempted to criticize others, ask yourself why you feel so strongly.

What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you create with those tools and resources is up to you. Remember that through desire, goal setting and unflagging effort you can have anything you want. Persistence is the key to success.

The answers lie inside of you. The solutions to all of life’s problems lie within your grasp. All you need to do is ask, look, listen and trust yourself.

Foundation of Love

If love is in our hearts, every thought, word, and deed can bring about a miracle. Because understanding is the very foundation of love, words and actions that emerge from our love are always helpful.

- Thich Nhat Hanh

Move Forward Much Faster

To become worthy of blessings means to make success easy. Thinking of benefit for the self increases to such an extent that it sometimes takes on the form of selfishness. When we are selfish we stop thinking about others or the effect that our action is going to have on them. Then we are not able to move forward with lightness because the good wishes and blessings of others are not with us. In each and every action of ours we need to first check if it is going to be beneficial for us as well as for others. As much as there is benefit for others too in the task that we are doing, that much the good wishes of others will be there for the task. With these good wishes we will be able to move forward much faster and achieving success will be easy.

- Brahma Kumaris

A Beautiful Miracle

A Prayer

Let me do my work each day; and if the darkened hours of despair overcome me, may I not forget the strength that comforted me in the desolation of other times.

May I still remember the bright hours that found me walking over the silent hills of my childhood, or dreaming on the margin of a quiet river, when a light glowed within me, and I promised my early God to have courage amid the tempests of the changing years.

Spare me from bitterness and from the sharp passions of unguarded moments. May I not forget that poverty and riches are of the spirit. Though the world knows me not, may my thoughts and actions be such as shall keep me friendly with myself.

Lift up my eyes from the earth, and let me not forget the uses of the stars. Forbid that I should judge others lest I condemn myself. Let me not follow the clamor of the world, but walk calmly in my path.

Give me a few friends who will love me for what I am; and keep ever burning before my vagrant steps the kindly light of hope.

And though age and infirmity overtake me, and I come not within sight of the castle of my dreams, teach me still to be thankful for life, and for time's olden memories that are good and sweet; and may the evening's twilight find me gentle still.

- Max Ehrmann

What Success Means

To really know what success means, earn it,
Don't reply on some elevatorto get you there.
The higher the floor you want to reach,
the more important it is to take the stairs
The easiest lessons to remember
are the ones you learn the hard way!
Appreciate the little things
that make each day unique and special.

It is not the height of skill but
the depth of CONVICTION will make you successful
It is no the depth of the logic but
the height of ATTITUDE will make you successful.

"The measure of achievement is not winning awards.
It's doing something that you appreciate,
something you believe is worthwhile.
I think of my strawberry souffle.
I did that at least twenty-eight times before I finally conquered it."

- Julia Child

Memories and Expectations

If you could only keep quiet, clear of memories and expectations, you would be able to discern the beautiful pattern of events. Its your restlessness that causes chaos.

Generosity of Spirit

Monday, March 15, 2010


Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your disappointments;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind acts instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on your faith during dark days.

Refuge in Pride

We take refuge in pride because we are afraid to tell the truth to ourselves.

The World is a great mirror. It reflects back to you what you are.
If you are loving, if you are friendly, if you are helpful, the World will
prove loving and friendly and helpful to you.
The World is what you are.

Inward spiritual practices such as meditation, breathing techniques and self-analysis generate insights and enhance abilities, but none are so useful as learning to live harmoniously in a committed relationship, being a skillful parent, or juggling the demands of daily life.

our neighbors build their philosophy of life.

Enjoy the Beauty of Life

To be wise is to enjoy the beauty of life. Wisdom gives the understanding that life does not function haphazardly. It teaches that everything that happens in this theatre of life has deep meaning and significance. Wisdom also brings the understanding that what is reaped today is a result of what was sown yesterday. So whatever actions are done now are filled with positivity and beauty - for, there is always the desire to reap better fruits. When we have the true understanding we find ourselves satisfied and content with everything that is happening in our lives. Yet there is the desire and the urge to go on being creative and using our resources for the benefit of all. We go on planting beautiful seeds of positivity and power. And continue to enjoy the fruits of the seeds we plant. We never stop with obstacles but move forward with confidence.

a part of us,
our friend
until the end.

Inner Peace

As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery.
We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace.
The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as
anger and attachment, fear and suspicion,
while love and compassion, a sense of universal responsibility
are the sources of peace and happiness.

- Dalai Lama

We Want to Love

We really have to understand the person we want to love. If our love is only a will to possess, it is not love. If we only think of ourselves, if we know only our own needs and ignore the needs of the other person, we cannot love.

Allow Yourself to Be Happy

The seed of suffering in you may be strong, but don't wait until you have no more suffering before allowing yourself to be happy.

- Thich Nhat Hanh

Lets start our day at a happy note.
So that we will be blessed with positivity
and cheer be around the whole day.

I'm sending your way my recipe for a perfect day:
Take a few dollops of JOY
Lace them with SMILES
Sprinkle a generous helping of FUN
Top it with my LOVE
And fill your day with sweetness
as you do all of mine.

Smile is the melody of the soul.
Work is the service of the spirit.
Love is the gift of the heart.
May you always be full of smiles.

Consistent Action

In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.

Closing a chapter in your book of life states that you have grown in certain areas of your life. It shows you that you are ready for some new challenges & new growth. You may experience some pain and memories, but the pain and memories have now turned into wisdom. So now, apply your new growth, new challenges, and wisdom to another chapter of your life and create new memories.
