What’s Inside?

“‘If I were to squeeze this orange as hard as I could, what would come out?’ I asked him.

He looked at me like I was a little crazy and said, ‘Juice, of course.’

‘Do you think apple juice could come out of it?’

‘No!’ he laughed.

‘What about grapefruit juice?’

‘No!’

‘What would come out of it?’

‘Orange juice, of course.’

‘Why? Why when you squeeze an orange does orange juice come out?’

He may have been getting a little exasperated with me at this point.

‘Well, it’s an orange and that’s what’s inside.”

I nodded.

‘Let’s assume that this orange isn’t an orange, but it’s you. And someone squeezes you, puts pressure on you, says something you don’t like, offends you. And out of you comes anger, hatred, bitterness, fear. Why?

The answer, as our young friend has told us, is because that’s what’s inside.’

It’s one of the great lessons of life. What comes out when life squeezes you? When someone hurts or offends you? If anger, pain and fear come out of you, it’s because that’s what’s inside. It doesn’t matter who does the squeezing: your mother, your brother, your children, your boss, the government. If someone says something about you that you don’t like, what comes out of you is what’s inside. And what’s inside is up to you, it’s your choice.

When someone puts the pressure on you and out of you comes anything other than love, it’s because that’s what you’ve allowed to be inside. Once you take away all those negative things you don’t want in your life and replace them with love, you’ll find yourself living a highly functioning life.”

Random – 250th post -A gratitude

GOD helps those who help themselves

GOD help those who help others

This is my thought

Every individual in his/her own capacity, with small acts of kindness contributes to the society. It is not about big charities. For a person shivering on a winter morning a cup of tea or a blanket to keep away the cold is worth in gold.

I would be compiling my HAIKU journey into an ebook soo and keep 50% of the proceedings from the sale to do my bit.

In this endeavor, i would be counting on my fellow bloggers, friends and like-minded people to help me.

Will keep posting on my progress

🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

People look in the mirrors
Not to reflect themselves
But to see how the world wants to look at them
I do not look in mirrors
Apart from highlighting a few wrinkles
Or a few grey hair
It does not say much
I search for my reflection in the hearts of my loved ones
Why?
I know
Would love to know your point of view

THE STATURE OF WOMEN IN #HINDUISM :

A great reminder of our rich heritage. Infortunately the present state of woman in our society shames our value systems. Ancient times child was known by his/her mother not father.

BLISSFULLY LOST SOUL ❤

AMMAVARUA – The Godess who laid the Egg form which Lord Brahma, Lord Shiva & Lord Vishnu hatched.

ARANYANI – Goddess of the Forest & the Creatures that live there.

BANKA MUNDI – Goddess of the Hunt & Fertility.

CHHAYA – Goddess of the Shadows & Consort of Surya, the Hindu Sun God.

DURGA – A Fierce, Demon fighting Goddess who sits upon a Lion. Her name means one who alleviates suffering.
