I Am !!!

Ego is but an empty shell,
Filled with air of your mental self,
To prove a point, or prove things right,
Ego will finally, make you hate your life.

I am, is what kills all your nice,
I am, is not always gonna be right,
Look into the mirror and realize,
I am, should not give you a fright.

I am, I am, will not make you an amigo,
I am, I am, is the voice of your ego,
I am, I am, will make a hole,
I am, I am, will kill your soul.

How Far

Only by going too far can one possibly find out how far one can go.

Gift of Giving

A traveler goes into a town hit by famine. The inhabitants try to discourage the traveler from staying, fearing he wants them to give him food. The traveler explains that he doesn't need any food and that, in fact, he was planning to make a soup to share with all of them.

The villagers watch suspiciously as he builds a fire and fills a cooking bowl with water. With great ceremony, he pulls a stone from a bag, dropping the stone into the pot of water. He sniffs the brew and exclaims how delicious stone soup is. As the villagers begin to show interest, he mentions how good the soup would be with just a little cabbage in it. A villager brings out a cabbage to share. This repeats until the soup has cabbage, carrots, onions, and spinach indeed, a substantial soup that feeds everyone in the village.

We understand from the story, that we all keep our ideas, knowledge and love to ourselves, with the view that not sharing will actually make us richer. But the fact is any knowledge or love that we have we are only poor. It is only if this little knowledge and love comes from everyone, we really become richer. Share the little knowledge and love you have with everyone, it will make the entire world a better richer place.

Compare Life

A morning start, with comparing life,
Of all that's missing in spite of trying,
The day starts dull and nothing's right,
Comparing life is only the wrong fight.

Life's not fair, when you sit and compare,
The bad’s enjoying life, but you're in despair,
It's only temporary you better get that right,
Don't compare with bad, throughout your life.

Comparing life, can never make you strong,
Comparing life, will not take you long,
Comparing life, is the wrongest wrong,
Comparing life, should never be your song.

Does It Really Matter?

Today we are all stuck into materiality and still do not realize it. E.g. My husband/father/wife got me these plates from China. They are very pretty, expensive and I love them very much. But if our maid breaks one of these plates, we tend to get very upset. We will yell at her and cry about it for a long time. And if we break these ourselves, we would keep wondering how we made such a mistake.

Everyone makes mistakes and we should realize the fact that IT WAS ONLY A PLATE. Should we really be worried that the plate broke or rather be worried if someone got hurt? One plate gone is not the end of the world. It's really not worth all the stress for such silly things in life. Learn to let go of material things in life. Losing any material things should not matter or make any difference, think about it, relationships and people are more important in life.

A kind word is like a kiss to the soul, both to whom you say it and to your own.

Life is Groovy

Life has good and life has bad,
But just one you'll never have,
Too much of good will make it boring,
And too much bad will never be scoring.

The value of joy needs to be compared,
With others lives and people's despairs,
Only to realize that our life is groovy,
Then you'll never want to feel sorry.

Don't you wait, don't compare,
Your life is great with no despair,
Enjoy your good; don't wait till you’re sad,
Your life’s very good only if you care.

Learn to Let Go

Let me tell you a small story. A man at a restaurant said a hilarious joke and everyone present there laughed aloud. After 5 minutes this man cracked the same joke and then a few people laughed, and he cracked it 4 more times until the point no one laughed at the joke. This man was very wise, smiled and told everyone “ If you cannot laugh at the same joke again and again, why do you cry about the same thing again and again? “. Every person present there had a smile of enlightenment on their faces.

Everyone knows the fact I have mentioned here, only we forget this in our everyday lives. We must learn to let our past be past, only learn from those mistakes and move ahead. Don’t keep grudges, anger, mistakes in your head, learn to let go. It is truly not worth wasting space in your mind with these meaningless things. Letting go off the past and moving on will only ensure a happier you.
