Time - Only precious gift you can give anyone

First of all I wish you all a very happy new year. May this year bring us all peace, happiness and good luck.
Time.. That’s the only precious gift than any other you can gift to someone.

Your time is limited. Dont waste it living someone elses's life.  ~Steve jobs
You booked a table in a costliest hotel and proposed to your girl friend with a diamond ring.You can earn the amount spent but you cannot get back the time you have spent.
The time you have spent qualitatively whether it be time spent for your personal development, time spent with your beloved, working for society rather than wasting time on time pass. In life you need entertainment not time pass. Plan and count your life day wise. Log your daily, monthly, yearly achievements. You can always improve. Every second, minute, hour, day, month, year are new. So keep giving importance to each new second of your life. . .

Once again wish you a happy, peaceful and qualitative 365 days in the year 2012. Enjoy your life, have a great time.

Be on my side.. thats enough

      God has given us the ultimate gift, THOUGHT. The gift to think, create, feel and make a lively life. More or less he has given us all the weapons...five senses and able bodies. He has given us the stage to act, the arena to prove ourselves. Why do you stop or blame him? When you are down take a break and lean your head on his shoulder. He is right beside you to console you and guide you. To give you the positive attitude, strength and belief in self. But at end of day your fight should be fought by you, he will not fight for you.
He stands besides you enjoying your victories just like your father enjoying your first step, first words, elated at your winning in running race... You would never have learnt walking if your father carried you on his shoulders right?

Mahabharata - Krishna offered the choice of himself alone without ever handling a weapon in the battlefield or his entire army of soldiers, horses, elephants, etc. Arjuna chose to have Krishna alone rejecting the entire army of Krishna, against which he and his brothers have to eventually fight by default. Any prudent and pragmatic person in the worldly sense might have chosen the army of Krishna, instead of choosing lone and non-fighting Krishna. It was arjuna's faith in Lord Krishna, whom he believed from the depth of his heart as the incarnation of Lord Vishnu that made Arjuna to choose Krishna in preference to his entire army against which he eventually fought and won. Unlike prudence and pragmatism which are the products of a sharp, yet self-defeating, intellect, faith originates deep in the soul and is expressed through the heart in a Divine fashion. From the point of worldly sense it may appear inferior to reasoning. But it defies and rises above reasoning. It is because faith transcends intellectual debate and reasoning

If Krishna fought the war, arjuna would have never become hero. Krishna never used his weapons in battlefield. He just stood beside arjuna to make him HERO. This is one of the key learning’s from the great epic Mahabharata. Don’t expect miracle in place of your hard work, give your best shot, remaining all he will take care.

Udarah Sarva Evaite, Jnani Tvatmaiva Me Matam,
Asthitah Sa Hi Yuktatma Mamevanuttamam Gatim !

All those who worship God are commendable. But the outstanding devotees, who worship God with the single motive to merge in the God, are the true devotees who have achieved the highest aim of life.

  There is no friendship without self-interests. This is a bitter truth.

Quality of action

         Work has the power to become prayer. Prayer has the power to become meditation. Meditation has the power to merge you in GOD.In everything the higher and the deeper can be experienced. It all depends on the quality you bring to your actions than the action itself.

          The highest man cannot work, for there is no binding element, no attachment, no ignorance in him. A ship is said to have passed over a mountain of magnet ore, and all the bolts and bars were drawn out, and it went to pieces. It is in ignorance that struggle remains, because we are all really atheists. Real theists cannot work. We are atheists more or less. We do not see God or believe in Him. He is G-O-D to us, and nothing more.

There are moments when we think He is near, but then we fall down again. When you see Him, who struggles for whom? Help the Lord! There is a proverb in our language, "Shall we teach the Architect of the universe how to build?" So those are the highest of mankind who do not work. The next time you see these silly phrases about the world and how we must all help God and do this or that for Him, remember this. Do not think such thoughts; they are too selfish.

All the work you do is subjective, is done for your own benefit. God has not fallen into a ditch for you and me to help Him out by building a hospital or something of that sort. He allows you to work. He allows you to exercise your muscles in this great gymnasium, not in order to help Him but that you may help yourself. Do you think even an ant will die for want of your help? Most arrant blasphemy! The world does not need you at all. The world goes on you are like a drop in the ocean. A leaf does not move, the wind does not blow without Him.

Blessed are we that we are given the privilege of working for Him, not of helping Him. Cut out this word "help" from your mind. You cannot help; it is blaspheming. You are here yourself at His pleasure. Do you mean to say, you help Him? You worship. When you give a morsel of food to the dog, you worship the dog as God. God is in that dog. He is the dog. He is all and in all. We are allowed to worship Him.

Stand in that reverent attitude to the whole universe, and then will come perfect non-attachment. This should be your duty. This is the proper attitude of work. This is the secret taught by Karma-Yoga
