We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid.  She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again - and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.  ~Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson's New Calendar, Following the Equator, 1897

The trouble with using experience as a guide is that the final exam often comes first and then the lesson.  ~Author Unknown

GOD is missing

Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, are extremely mischievous. They are
always getting into trouble and their parents know all about it. If any mischief occurs in their town, the two boys are probably involved.

The boys mother heard that a preacher in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The preacher agreed, but he asked to see them individually.

So the mother sent the 8 year old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the preacher in the afternoon.

The preacher, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly,

"Do you know where God is, son?"

The boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there wide-eyed with his mouth hanging open.

So the preacher repeated the question in an even sterner tone, "Where is God?!"

Again, the boy made no attempt to answer. The preacher raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bellowed,

"Where is God?!"

The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him.

When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "what happened?"
The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in BIG trouble this time.
GOD is missing, and they think we did it !!!!!    :-)

Much of your pain is self-chosen - 1 Minute Reading

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.
And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy;
And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields.
And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief.

Much of your pain is self-chosen.It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquillity:
For his hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen,
And the cup he brings, though it burn your lips, has been fashioned of the clay which the Potter has moistened with His own sacred tears.

                                                            ~Kahlil Gibran (from The Prophet)

The person started shouting ‘Anyone there? Please help meeee…. ’  :-)

Alexander The Great

The great Greek king, Alexander, after conquering many kingdoms, was returning home. On the way he fell ill and he was bedridden for months. With death drawing close, Alexander realized how his conquests, his great army, his sharp sword and all his wealth were of no use.
He called his generals and said, "I will depart from this world soon. But I have three wishes. Please fulfill my wishes without fail." With tears flowing down their cheeks, the generals agreed to abide by their kings’ last wishes, "My first desire is that," said Alexander, "My physicians alone must carry my coffin." "Secondly, when my coffin is being carried to the grave, the path leading to the graveyard should be strewn with gold, silver and precious stones which I have collected in my treasury. My third and last wish is that both my hands should be kept dangling out of my coffin." The people who had gathered there wondered at the kings strange wishes. But no one dared to question. Alexander’s favorite general kissed his hand and pressed them to his heart. "O King, we assure you that your wishes will be fulfilled. But tell us why do you make such strange wishes?"
At this Alexander took a deep breath and said, "I would like the world to know of the three lessons I have just learnt.
I want my physicians to carry my coffin because people should realize that no doctor can really cure anybody. They are powerless and cannot save a person from the clutches of death. So let not people take life for granted.
The second wish of strewing gold, silver and other riches on the way to the graveyard is to tell people that not even a fraction of gold can be taken by me. Let people realize that it is a sheer waste of time to chase wealth.
And about my third wish of having my hands dangling out of the coffin, I want people to know that I came empty handed into this world and empty handed I go out of this world."
Alexander's last words: "Bury my body, do not build any monument and keep my hands outside so that the world knows the person who won the world had nothing in his hands when dying".

Wish you a very happy new year

  The object of a new year is not just that we should have a new year. It is also that we should have a new soul. Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you a better yourself. Every new year people make resolutions to change aspects of themselves they believe are negative. A majority of people revert back to how they were before and feel like failures. This year I challenge you to a new resolution. I challenge you to just be yourself.
Wishing You and Your Family Happy and Prosperous New Year 2012.
