One cold night, A billionaire met an old poor man outside.

He asked him, “don’t you feel cold being outside, and not wearing any coat?”

The old man replied, “I don’t have it but I got used to that.”

The billionaire replied, “Wait for me. I will enter my house now and bring you one. ”

The poor man got so happy and said he will wait for him.The billionaire entered his house and got busy there and forgot the poor man.

In the morning he remembered that poor old man and he went out to search for him but he found him dead because of cold, but he left a NOTE,

“When I didn’t have any warm clothes, I had the power to fight the cold because I was used to that. But when you promised me to help me, I got attached to your promise and that took my power of resisting.

MORAL:

Don’t promise anything if you can’t keep your promise. It might not mean anything to you, But it could mean everything to someone else.

One night Shankaracharya was desperately searching for something on the street outside his small hut.

When his pupil returned from his errand, he saw this and curiously asked the Master, “Aacharya, what are you looking for here on the street at this hour?”

Shankaracharya replied, “I lost my needle, I am looking for it.”

The pupil joined him in the search, but after searching for a while, he asked, “Can you try and recollect where you might have dropped it?”

Shankaracharya said, “Of course, I remember. I dropped it near the bed in the hut.”

The pupil, utterly astonished at the strange answer, said, “Aacharya, you say you lost it inside the house, then why are we looking for it outside?”

Shankaracharya innocently replied, “There is no oil left in the lamp, so it is pitch dark inside the house. Hence I thought of searching for it outside, since there is enough street light here.”

While holding back his laugh, the pupil said, “If you lost your needle inside the house, how could you even expect to find it outside?”

Shankaracharya simply smiled back at the pupil and said, “Isn’t that what we do? We run to far away temples and walk up mountains to search for what we have lost inside ourselves. We are all seeking outside what we have lost inside us. Why? Just because it is pitch dark inside.

Silly, aren’t we?”

“Light the Lamp inside you and find your lost treasure right there in.”

A pregnant mother asked her daughter, “What do you want- A brother or a sister?“
Daughter:- Brother
Mother:- Like whom?

Daughter:- Like RAVAN.

Mother:- What the hell are you saying? Are you out of your mind?

Daughter:- Why not Mom? He left all his Royalship & Kingdom, all because his sister was disrespected.
Even after picking up his enemy’s wife, he didn’t ever touch her. Why wouldn’t I want to have a brother like him?
What would I do with a brother like Ram who left his pregnant wife after listening to a “Dhobi” though his wife always stood by his side like a shadow? After giving “Agni Pareeksha” & suffering 14 years of exile.
Mom, you being a wife & sister to someone, until when will you keep on asking for a “RAM” as your son???

Mother was in tears.

Moral:- No one in the world is good or bad. Its just an interpretation about someone. Change YoUr perception.

REMEMBER: Not everyone who goes to a club is characterless and not everyone who goes to a temple is pure, so DON’T JUDGE!!

👉 unlike your world, we had relatives who lived close by so family time and ties were enjoyed together.
👉 We may have been in black and white photos but you will find colourful memories in those photos.
👉 We are a unique and, the most understanding generation, because we are the last generation who listened to their parents.

Once a Crow, holding on to a prey (piece of food), was flying to a place to sit & eat.
However, a flock of Eagles were chasing it. The crow was anxious and was flying higher and higher, yet eagles were after the poor crow.

Just then “Garuda” saw the pain in the eyes of the crow. Coming closer to the crow, he asked:
“What’s wrong? You seem to be very “disturbed” and in “stress”?”..

The crow cried “Look at these eagles!! They are after me to kill me”.
Garuda being the bird of wisdom spoke “Oh my friend!! They are not after you to kill you!! They are after that piece of meat that you are holding in your beak”. Just drop it and see what will happen.

The crow followed the instructions of Garuda and dropped the piece of meat, and there you go, all the eagles flew towards the falling meat.

Garuda smiled and said “The Pain is only till you hold on to it” Just Drop” it.
The crow just bowed and said “I dropped this piece of meat, now, I can fly even higher..”

There is a message for us from this story too:

  1. People carry the huge burden called “Ego,” which creates a false identity about us, that we create for ourselves saying “I need love, I need to be invited, I am so and so.. “etc…” Just Drop ….
  2. People get irritated fast by “others actions” it can be my friend, My parent, My children, My colleague, My life partner… and I get the fumes of “anger “…”Just Drop….
  3. People compare themselves with others.. in beauty, wealth, life style, marks, talent and appraisals and feel disturbed… We must be grateful with what we have … comparisons, negative emotions ..” Just Drop…

Some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.

Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, “This is for you, Daddy.” He was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found the box was empty.

He yelled at her, “Don’t you know that when you give someone a present, there’s supposed to be something inside it?”

The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said, ”Oh, Daddy, it is not empty. I blew kisses into the box. All for you, Daddy.”

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness.
It is told that the man kept that gold box by his bed for years and whenever he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

In a very real sense, as a human we have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love from our children, friends, family and may be from unknown persons. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold than real love. Feel , value and share it always !!

A sweet short story with a great lesson… worth reading….*

Nearby, a building construction work was going on.
Lots of poor  labourers were working there and their small  children used to hold onto one another’s shirt and play “train-train”.
Someone would become the engine and others would become bogies
Every day these children used to take turns becoming the engine and bogies …
But there was  one small boy wearing only a half pant who used to hold one small green cloth in his hand and become the guard daily.

So  once I went to him and asked him ..”beta, don’t u also wish to become an engine or a bogie some time ?
He softly replied ..” Sir , I don’t have a shirt to wear so how will the other children catch me to make the train ?
I could see the slight wetness in his eyes..

But  It gave me a lesson…. he could have cried and sat at home and abused his parents for not affording to buy  him a shirt.
But instead he chose another way to play and enjoy himself..

In life, we don’t get all things we desire and we keep complaining ..
I dont have a bike,  I don’t have car , I don’t have this or that etc…

Life is like that ….we need to make it beautiful  and be grateful for what we have ..
