Only if...

I often wonder, how the energy that we have often goes in the wrong direction.

Only if, the energy is expended in a positive way...

no human can go hungry and there would be plenty of food to share on earth...

relationships would last longer with the baggage of ego thrown into garbage forever and each life will flower the fragrance of life which will last forever...

there would be light even in the darkest corners of the space outside in the universe and inside the minutest cells of this living body...

affection would grow equally for the many millions of living beings who are making their life amongst the humans and in spite of being in majority, they are ignored because they lead a simple life unlike the hyper complicated intelligent selfish human being...

only if we could recognize the life on earth is so simple to live and that the human thinking has complicated everything related to living because of programmed thinking process...

It always springs up in my mind that politicians would be more popular with no opposition to fight for a wrong reason and all the countries in the world will help each other...

Only if the energy is used in the right way...

if the mind dies everyday...

The mind that dies everyday to the memories of yesterday, to all the joys and sorrows of the past- such a mind is fresh, innocent, it has no age, and without that innocence, whether you are ten or sixty, you will not find God.

Experience - J Krishnamurti

Experience is the memory of experiencing, is it not? When experiencing ends there is experience, the result. While experiencing, there is no experience; experience is but the memory of having experienced. As the state of experiencing fades, experience begins. Experience is ever hindering experiencing, living. Results, experiences, come to an end; but experiencing is inexhaustible. When the inexhaustible is hindered by memory, then the search for results begins. The mind, the result, is always seeking an end, a purpose, and that is death. Death is not when the experiencer is not. Only then is there the inexhaustible

Simplicity comes only through self-knowledge

Our problems - social, environmental, political, religious - are so complex that we can solve them only by being simple, not by becoming extraordinarily erudite and clever. Because, a simple person sees much more directly, has a more direct experience, than the complex person. And, our minds are so crowded with an infinite knowledge of facts of what others have said that we have become incapable of being simple and having direct experience ourselves. These problems demand a new approach, and they can be so approached only when we are simple, inwardly really simple. That simplicity comes only through self-knowledge, through understanding ourselves: the ways of our thinking and feeling, the movements of our thoughts, our responses, how we conform through fear to public opinion, to what others say, what the Buddha, the Christ, the great saints have said - all of which indicates our nature to conform, to be safe, to be secure. And, when one is seeking security, one is obviously in a state of fear, and therefore there is no simplicity.

Box Full of Kisses

The story goes that 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."
The man was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found out the box was empty. He yelled at her, stating, "Don't you know, when you give someone a present, there is supposed to be something inside? The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and cried, "Oh, Daddy, it's not empty at all. I blew kisses into the box. They're all for you, Daddy."
The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness.
Only a short time later, an accident took the life of the child. It is also told that her father kept that gold box by his bed for many 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, each one of us, as humans beings, have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses... from our children, family members, friends, and God. There is simply no other possession, anyone could hold, more precious than this . . .

A wise old Owl

A wise old Owl sat on an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard;
Why aren't we like that wise old bird?

 - Charles Schulz


What, of all things in the World, is the longest & the shortest, the swiftest & the slowest, the most divisible & the most extended, the most neglected & the most regretted, without which nothing can be done, which devours all that is little, & enlivens all that is great? 












Three Principles of Mental Health - Greek Philosophy

An ancient Greek thinker gave us the three principles of mental health –
know yourself,
accept yourself,
be yourself.

It does not help a bit to pretend that we are what we are not. But it helps a lot towards self-control, inner harmony, and mature character when we have the frankness and courage to accept ourselves just as we are.
If we learn to accept the people at home, at work, in society just as they are, with their faults and failings as with their faults and failings as with their good qualities, we have a secret of peace and harmony in our personal relationships.

Truth was a mirror...

"Truth was a mirror in the hands of God. It fell and broke...

Everybody took a piece of it and they looked at it and thought they had the truth."
