Doors of Wisdom

A King had an only son, a young Prince, brave, skillful
and intelligent. To perfect his knowledge of Life, he sent him to an Old Wise Man.

"Bring Light to my Path of Life", the Prince asked.

"My words will faint away like the prints of your steps in the sand, the Wise Man answered. However, I want to give you some indications. On your Path, you will find 3 doors. Read the rules written on each of them.

An irresistible need will urge you to follow them.
Don't try and get away from them, because you would be condemned to live again, ceaselessly, what you have avoided. I may tell you no more.

You have to feel all this deep in your heart and in your flesh. Go, now. Follow this path, right in front of you. "

The Old Wise Man disappeared and the Prince entered the Path of Life.

He was soon in front of a big door, on which one could read:"CHANGE THE WORLD".

"It was my intention indeed the Prince thought, because if some things please me in this world, others greatly displease me."

And he began his first fight. His ideal, his ardour and his power urged him to confront himself to the world, to undertake, to conquer, to model reality according to his desires.

He found there the pleasure and the dizziness of the conqueror, but no peace in his heart. He managed to change some things but many others resisted to him. Many years passed.

One day, he met the Old Wise Man who asked him:

"What have you learn on your path?"

"I have learnt," the Prince answered, how to discern
what is within my power and what is without, what depends on me and what does not depend on me".

"That's good! the Old Man said. Use your strength to act on what is within your power. Forget what's beyond your power." And he disappeared.

A bit later, the Prince was in front of a second door.
He could read on it : "CHANGE OTHERS".

"It was my intention indeed, he thought. The others are
a source of pleasure, enjoyment and satisfaction, but also, of pain, bitterness and frustration."

And he rebelled against everything that could disturb him or displease him in his fellow men. He tried to bend their characters and to extirpate their defects.

It was there his second fight.

Many years passed.

One day, as he was meditating on the utility of the attempts to change the others, he met the Old Wise Man who asked him:

"What have you learn on your path?"

"I have learnt, the Prince answered, that the others are
not the cause or the source of my joys and my punishments, my satisfactions and my setbacks. They are only opportunities for all of them to be revealed.

It is in myself that all these things have their roots."

"You are right, the Wise Man said. According to what they wake up in you, the others reveal you to yourself. Be grateful to those who make your enjoyment and pleasure vibrate.

But be also grateful to those who create in you suffering or frustration, because, through them, life teaches you what is left in you to learn and the path that you still have to walk."

And the Old Man disappeared.

A bit further, the Prince arrived in front of a door, on
which these words were written: "CHANGE YOURSELF".

"If I am myself the cause of my problems, it is indeed
what's left in me to work on", he said to himself.

And he began his 3rd fight. He tried to bend his character, to fight his imperfections, to abolish his defects, to change everything that did not please him in himself, everything that did not correspond to his ideal.

After many years of this fight, in which he met some success, but also, some failures and some resistances, the Prince met the Wise Man who asked him: "What have you learn on your path?"

"I have learnt, the Prince answered, that there are
things that we can improve, others that resist us and that we can't manage to break."

"That's good!" the Wise Man said.

"Yes, the Prince went on, but I am beginning to be tired of fighting against everything, against everybody, against myself. Won't there be an end to it one day? When shall I find a rest? I want to stop fighting, to give up, to abandon everything, I want to let go !"

"It is precisely your next lesson, the Old Wise Man said. But before going any further, turn round and behold the path covered."

And he disappeared.

On looking back, the Prince saw in the distance the 3rd door, and noticed that it was carrying a text on its back, saying : "ACCEPT YOURSELF."

The Prince was surprised not to have seen this writing when he went through the door, the other way.

"When one fights, one becomes blind, he said to himself. He also saw, lying on the ground, scattered around him, everything he had thrown away and fought against in him: his defects, his shadows, his fears, his limits, all his old worries. He had learnt then how to recognize them, to accept them, to love them. He had learnt how to love himself without comparing himself to the others any more, without judging himself, without reprimanding himself.

He met the Old Wise Man who asked him:

"What have you learnt on your path?"

"I have learnt, the Prince answered, that hating or
refusing a part of myself, it is to condemn myself never to be in agreement with myself. I learnt how to accept myself, totally, unconditionally."

"That's good!, the Old Man said, it is the first rule in
Wisdom. Now you can go back through the 3rd door."

He had no sooner reached the other side, that the Prince perceived far away the back of the second door, on which he could read: "ACCEPT OTHERS".

All around him, he could recognize the persons he had been with all his life through; those he had loved as well as those he had hated. Those he had supported and those he had fought.

But the biggest surprise of all for him was that now, he was absolutely unable to see their imperfections, their defects, what formerly had embarrassed him so much, and against which he had fought.

He met the Old Wise Man again.

"What have you learnt on your path?" he asked him.

"I have learnt", the Prince answered, "that by being in
agreement with myself, I had no more anything to blame in the others, no more anything to be afraid of in them. I have learnt how to accept and to love the others, totally, unconditionally."

"That's good!", the Old Wise Man said. It is the
second rule in Wisdom. You can go back through the second door."

On reaching the other side of the second door, the Prince perceived in the distance the back of the first door, on which he could read: "ACCEPT THE WORLD".

Strangely enough, he said to himself, that I did not see
these words on the first time. He looked all around him and recognized this world which he had tried to conquer, to transform, to change. He was struck by the brightness and the beauty of every thing. By their perfection.

Nevertheless, it was the same world as before. Was it
the world which had changed ?

He met the Old Wise Man who asked him:

"What have you learnt on your path?"

"I have learnt, the Prince said, that the world is a
mirror for my soul. That my soul can't see the world, it sees itself in the world. When my soul is cheerful, the world seems cheerful to it.

When it is overcome, the world seems sad to it. The world itself is neither sad nor cheerful. It IS there; it exists; it is everything. It was Not the world that disturbed me, but the idea that I had of it. I have learnt to accept it without judging it, to accept it totally, unconditionally. "

It is 3rd rule of Wisdom, the Old Man said. You are here now in agreement with yourself, with others
and with the World.

A profound feeling of peace, serenity, plenitude, filled
the Prince. Silence was in him.

"Now, you are ready to go past the last Threshold the
Old Wise Man said, the one that goes from the silence of Plenitude to the Plenitude of Silence ".

प्रेरक कथा " समझदारी से हर काम करें"/ संकलित

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of his plans to leave the house building business and live a more leisurely life with his wife enjoying his extended family. He would miss the paycheck, but he needed to retire. They could get by.

The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor. The carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end his career.

When the carpenter finished his work and the builder came to inspect the house, the contractor handed the front-door key to the carpenter. "This is your house," he said, "my gift to you."

What a shock! What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently. Now he had to live in the home he had built none too well.

So it is with us. We build our lives in a distracted way, reacting rather than acting, willing to put up less than the best. At important points we do not give the job our best effort. Then with a shock we look at the situation we have created and find that we are now living in the house we have built. If we had realized, we would have done it differently.

Think of yourself as the carpenter. Think about your house. Each day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall. Build wisely. It is the only life you will ever build. Even if you live it for only one day more, that day deserves to be lived graciously and with dignity. The plaque on the wall says, "Life is a do-it-yourself project."

Who could say it more clearly? Your life today is the result of your attitudes and choices in the past। Your life tomorrow will be the result of your attitudes and the choices you make today.

वृन्दावन के जज बन गए ' पागलबाबा ' / संकलित

वृन्दावन में एक कथा प्रचलित है । एक गरीब ब्राह्मण बांकेबिहारी का परमभक्त था|एक बार उसने एक महाजन से कुछ रूपए उधार लिए|हर महीने उसे थोडा थोडा करके चुकता करता था|जब अंतिम किस्त रह गयी तब महाजन ने उसे अदालती नोटिस भिजवा दिया कि अभी तक उसने उधार चुकता नहीं किया है,इसलिए पूरी रकम मय ब्याज वापस करे|ब्राह्मण परेशान हो गया|
महाजन के पास जा कर उसने बहुत सफाई दी,अनुनय विनय किया,लेकिन महाजन अपने दावे से टस से मस नहीं हुआ|मामला कोर्ट पहुंचा|कोर्ट में भी ब्राह्मण ने जज से वही बात कही,मैंने सारा पैसा चुका दिया है|महाजन झूठ बोल रहा है|
जज ने पूछा,कोई गवाह है जिसके सामने तुम महाजन को पैसा देते थे|
कुछ सोच कर उसने कहा,हाँ मेरी तरफ से गवाही बांकेबिहारी देंगे|
अदालत ने गवाह का पता पूछा तो ब्राह्मण ने बताया,बांकेबिहारी,वल्द वासुदेव,बांकेबिहारी मंदिर,वृन्दावन|
उक्त पते पर सम्मन जारी कर दिया गया|पुजारी ने सम्मन को मूर्ति के सामने रख कर कहा,भगवन,आप को गवाही देने कचहरी जाना है|
गवाही के दिन सचमुच एक बूढ़ा आदमी जज के सामने खड़ा हो कर बता गया की पैसे देते समय मैं साथ होता था और फलां फलां तारीख को रकम वापस की गयी थी|
जज ने सेठ का बहीखाता देखा तो गवाही सच निकली|रकम दर्ज थी,नाम फर्जी डाला गया था|
जज ने ब्राह्मण को निर्दोष करार दिया|लेकिन जज के मन में यह उथल पथल रही की आखिर वह गवाह था कौन|
उसने ब्राह्मण से पूछा-ब्राह्मण ने बताया की वह तो सर्वत्र रहता है,भक्तों की मदद के लिए अपने आप आता है|
इस घटना ने जज को इतना उद्वेलित किया की वह इस्तीफा देकर,घरपरिवार छोड़ कर फकीर बन गया|
बहुत साल बाद वह वृन्दावन लौट कर आया पागलबाबा के नाम से|आज भी वहां पागलबाबा का बनवाया हुआ बांके बिहारी जी का एक मंदिर है|जिसे पागल बाबा मंदिर भी कहते हैं|जो मथुरा वृन्दावन रोड पर स्थित है।

बस तुम हो ,बस तुम! /अशोक लव

तुम हो
तुम हो ,
हवाओं में
स्पर्श कराते हैं
अस्तित्व की अनुभूति
तुम हो
तुम हो ,
झरनों के प्रवाहों में
कल-कल संगीत
हृदय को स्वयं में डुबो लेता है।
तुम हो
हाँ तुम हो ,
आकाश छूने को लालायित
की लहरों में
स्वप्नों की भांति।
तुम हो ,
शिशुओं की मुस्कानों में
भर देती है हृदय में- ममत्व।
तुम हो ,
-जहाँ तक जाती है दृष्टि
तुम हो ,

कीमती पत्थर से भी कीमती / प्रेरक कथा

A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream.

The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him.

She did so without hesitation.

The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime.

But, a few days later, he came back to return the stone to the wise woman.

"I've been thinking" he said, "I know how valuable this stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious. Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me this stone."

Sometimes it's not the wealth you have, but what's inside you that others need.

प्रेरक कथा : जीवन में किसे महत्व दें/अशोक लव

This is a very nice story which I would like to share with you today!
A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter.
He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.
He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “Yes.”
“Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the important things – your family, your partner, your health, your children – things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the other things that matter – like your job, your house, your car.
The sand is everything else. The small stuff.”
“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued “there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life.
If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal.

Take care of the rocks first – the things that really matter Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”

10 Simple Steps to Keeping Yourself Motivated in Your (Home Based Business)

अपने घरेलू बिजनेस को बढाने की प्रेरणा देने वाली दस बातें

Whether you are new or a seasoned entrepreneur keeping yourself motivated in your home business is key to your success. Internal motivation is required, so relying on someone else to motivate you will never result in success. If your reasons for working your home based business is not strong enough, then its unlikely that you will last the distance. Below is a list of 10 ideas to keep yourself motivated.

1) Goal setting - Be very specific in your goal setting, write them out for 90 days, monthly, weekly and daily. Then break it down into small actionable steps.

2) Exercise and Healthy Diet – Make exercise a part of your routine and keep a healthy diet. A healthy body equals a healthy mind.

Life is not what you see

Life is not what you see, but what you’ve projected. It’s
not what you’ve felt, but what you’ve decided. It’s not
what you’ve experienced, but how you’ve remembered it.
It’s not what you’ve forged, but what you’ve allowed. And,
it’s not who’s appeared, but who you’ve summoned.
And this should serve you well, beloved, until you find
what you already have.

English-A crazy Language / Anil Dutta

Let's face it-English is a crazy language.

There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.

English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France .

Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.

We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?

If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend, that you comb through annals of history but not a single annal? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn't preacher praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? If you wrote a letter, perhaps you bote your tongue?

Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? Park on driveways and drive on parkways? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and wise guy are opposites? How can overlook and oversee be opposites, while quite a lot and quite a few are alike? How can the weather be hot as hell one day and cold as hell another.

Have you noticed that we talk about certain things only when they are absent? Have you ever seen a horseful carriage or a strapful gown? Met a sung hero or experienced requited love? Have you ever run into someone who was combobulated, gruntled, ruly or peccable?

And where are all those people who ARE spring chickens or who would ACTUALLY hurt a fly?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which an alarm clock goes off by going on.

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race (which, of course, isn't a race at all). That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. And why, when I wind up my watch, I start it, but when I wind up this essay, I end it.

टूटे बर्तन की कहानी

A water bearer had two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master's house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.
For a full 2 years this went on daily, with the bearer
delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his master's house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect to the end for which it was made. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.
After 2 years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure,
it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. "I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you." "Why?" asked the बेअरेर. "What are you ashamed of?"
"I have been able, for these past two years, to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your master's house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don't get full value from your efforts," the pot said.
The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in his
compassion he said, "As we return to the master's house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path."
Indeed as they went up the hill, the old cracked pot took notice
of the sun warming the beautiful wild flowers on the side of the path and this cheered it some. But at the end of tile trail, it still felt bad because it had leaked out half its load, and so again it apologized to the bearer for its failure.
The bearer said to the pot, "Did you notice that there were
flowers only on YOUR side of your path, but not on the other pot's side? That's because I have always known about your flaw, and I took advantage of it. I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back from the stream, you've watered them. For 2 years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my master's table. Without you being just the way you are, he would not have this beauty to grace his house." Moral: Each of us has our own unique flaws। We're all cracked pots. Some of us don't grow old gracefully, some are not so smart, some are tall, large & big, some bald, some physically challenged, but it's the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding.
You've just got to take each person for what they are, and look
for the good in them. There is a lot of good out there. There is a lot of good in you, my dear friend! Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.
Remember to appreciate all the different people in your life!
Or as I like to think of it - If it's not for the crackpots in my life, it would be pretty boring.
