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

Random-PEACE Reflection of their expressions

The cause of many sufferings

Happiness an illusion

Never stays for long

Never consistent

Always dependent

Still everyone is running

Trying to own it

BUDDHA did not go in search of happiness

Neither did Kabir or other great Saints

For them there was nothing to be achieved

With my limited observation

I could say

The common bond they shared

Is

The serenity and calm

The love and generosity

And

Their state of Inner PEACE

Random – Tea

Desi chai of Jammu

While having my morning β˜€οΈ tea, my thoughts took me to the world of this magic beverage.

The tiny leaves may be the only one (not sure) having so varied tastes and colors. And every tea lover has his/her unique taste and style of making. A “cup of tea” is our companion, supporting us in our good times or bad times.

For me it created a few very precious friendships and lots of Memories. πŸ’•.

Today I thank the first planter of TπŸ˜‡.
