chest-145753_960_720A man and a woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.
For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover. In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife’s bedside.
She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000. He asked her about the contents.
“When we were to be married,” she said, “my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.”
The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness.
“Honey,” he said “that explains the doll, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?”
“Oh, that?” she said. “That’s the money I made from selling the dolls.”

tree-of-life_flower-of-life_stage-svgThere lived a Sadhu who regularly used to give discourses.

One day at the end of the discourse he was talking of being grateful to existence. “Operate from a space of gratitude. This will allow us to expand.”

A beggar was sitting in a corner and listening to the discourse; he came up to the Sadhu and said, “Maharaj, your talk was great. But one thing I am not able to understand. You said to be grateful to the existence because it has always showered benediction on you. Sorry! But, existence has not given me anything. I am struggling even for one roti”.

The Sadhu said, “I agree with you, I will give you two lakhs, right here, will you be grateful?’ The beggar was thrilled.

“But I want something in return from you”, said the Sadhu. “I do not have anything, what can I give you? If I have something I will definitely give you.” said the beggar.

“I won’t ask you anything that you do not have”, said the Sadhu. The agreement was made. The Sadhu said, “I will make arrangements for the two lakhs; but then in return you have to give me both your eyes.”

The beggar was astonished. “What will I do with this money without my eyes? I don’t agree to the deal,” he said. “I prefer my two eyes instead of two lakhs”. The Sadhu said, “but you said you don’t have anything and were cursing existence.”

For the beggar, money was very important. That we can see is such a great gift of existence. He had two eyes, two hands, two legs, stomach etc., He is already a multi-millionaire. But we do not see all these gifts .We can hear. We can walk. All are great gifts.

Now If you say you are unhappy, it is just ridiculous.

In fact we should dance and celebrate Our Existence.

We are normally focused on what is missing in life.

The moment you start operating from what you don’t have, whatever you have also go into darkness.
