Death

When the angel of death came to Joe Smith, to accompany him to his real home, Joe dismissively responded “I am not ready to die as I have so much left to do. Do you mind coming back later?”

The Angel replied, sorry your time is up and we must leave now.

Joe enquired, “don’t you know who I am? I am Joe Smith, one of the richest men in the world.

The Angel nodded “I know all about you as I do everyone else; now hurry along, Let’s go.”

Joe pleaded; “if I were to give you 10% of my fortune, which is over a billion dollars, will you turn a blind eye and return a year later?”

The Angel shook his head and replied, “you don’t seem to understand Joe. It is time to go”

For the next few moments, Joe tried his best to negotiate with the angel giving away more of his fortune for lesser time. He finally succumbed and offered

“if I were to give you all my fortune, which is 10 billion dollars, will you give me 5 minutes so that I can call my wife and children and tell them that I love them?

I have never told them this and it is very important to me that they know how I feel about them. I also need to seek forgiveness from 2 people that I have hurt the most. All I ask is 5 minutes!”

The Angel paused and looked at Joe curiously and asked, “how long did it take you to make your 10 billion dollars?”

Joe replied, “30 years my friend – it took me a whole 30 years – it’s a great deal in exchange for 5 minutes, take it – you will never have to work another day in your life. “

The Angel shook his head and said “I really do not understand you human beings! If you are willing to give up 30 years of your lives’ work for 5 minutes, then  why did you not make the most of every minute while you had it? How did you value your time? Where were your priorities? Why did you not say or do the things that really mattered?”

The lights went off a second later, Joe was gone. His 10 billion dollars could not buy him the time to do what really mattered.

Philosophy of Charles Schultz

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz , the creator of the “Peanuts” comic strip.
You don’t have to actually answer the questions. Just read the “entire” post straight through, and you’ll get the point.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America Contest.

4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

6. Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. They are not second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Easier?

* The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are NOT the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. “They are the ones who care.”

The core message of Jiddu Krishnamurthy

The core of Krishnamurti’s teaching is contained in the statement he made in 1929 when he said, “Truth is a pathless land”. Man cannot come to it through any organization, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, not through any philosophical knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship, through the understanding of the contents of his own mind, through observation and not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection.

Man has built in himself images as a fence of security—religious, political, personal. These manifest as symbols, ideas, beliefs. The burden of these images dominates man’s thinking, his relationships, and his daily life. These images are the causes of our problems for they divide man from man. His perception of life is shaped by the concepts already established in his mind. The content of his consciousness is his entire existence. The individuality is the name, the form and superficial culture he acquires from tradition and environment. The uniqueness of man does not lie in the superficial but in complete freedom from the content of his consciousness, which is common to all humanity. So he is not an individual.

Freedom is not a reaction; freedom is not choice. It is man’s pretence that because he has choice he is free. Freedom is pure observation without direction, without fear of punishment and reward. Freedom is without motive; freedom is not at the end of the evolution of man but lies in the first step of his existence. In observation one begins to discover the lack of freedom. Freedom is found in the choiceless awareness of our daily existence and activity.

Thought is time. Thought is born of experience and knowledge, which are inseparable from time and the past. Time is the psychological enemy of man. Our action is based on knowledge and therefore time, so man is always a slave to the past. Thought is ever limited and so we live in constant conflict and struggle. There is no psychological evolution. When man becomes aware of the movement of his own thoughts, he will see the division between the thinker and thought, the observer and the observed, the experiencer and the experience. He will discover that this division is an illusion. Then only is there pure observation which is insight without any shadow of the past or of time. This timeless insight brings about a deep, radical mutation in the mind.

Total negation is the essence of the positive. When there is negation of all those things that thought has brought about psychologically, only then is there love, which is compassion and intelligence

Adversity is better than prosperity

Of course prosperity brings many friends, but adversity filters them, so that you can recognize the real and true friends;

Of course prosperity brings Success, but adversity fails you, so that you can recognize your own strengths and weaknesses;

Of course prosperity brings happiness, but adversity hurts, so that you can recognize the worth of real happiness;

Of course prosperity brings many opportunities, but adversity not, so that you can recognize the worth of good opportunity;

Of course prosperity makes you rich, but adversity poors you, so that you can recognize the worth of real richness.

Now see,

Many people have many friends but among all there are few lucky who recognize real and true friends;

Many people got success in many ways but among all there are few lucky who exampled the real success; 

Many people are happy for many reasons but among all there are few lucky who are enjoying the real happiness;

Many people got many opportunities but among all there are few lucky who utilized the best opportunities;

Many people become rich in many ways but among all there are few lucky who are enjoying the real richness.

Prosperity makes ‘many people’ but adversity makes ‘the few lucky’.

So, remember that

Adversity comes in life not to make you weak but to make you stronger;

Not to make you fearful but to make you courageous;

And

Adversity is not lack of good opportunities but it itself is a special kind of opportunity to learn to face the situation of lack of opportunities. 

Be optimistic forever and never give up your hope.

Learn to make best use of every thing, even the useless.

The Paradox of our Age

In these days of fast foods and slow digestions …

We have more degrees, but less common sense; more knowledge; but less wisdom; more medicine, but less good health; we have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values; we have been working hard to weighten our purses; but unfortunately we let our hearts lighten;

We always have enough time and information to talk about film stars and cricketers etc. ; but we have not enough words of love and time to share with our parents, relative and friends;

We have enough time and patience to watch movies and TV serials; but not enough time and patience to listen to the lectures and few words of wisdom;

We have enough friends to chit chat with, we have enough friends to play with, we have enough friends to share our vulgar thoughts and moments with, we have enough friends to waste our time, money and energy in different ways; but we hardly have enough friends to have profitable and constructive talks; we hardly have enough friends whom we can call them as our true and best friends;

We have enough money to satisfy our own esteem needs but not enough money to serve other people’s basic needs;

We have enough knowledge to understand the most difficult theories of physics and embedded systems; but not enough knowledge to understand the most common human feelings and emotions;

We have enough words to blame each other as the one I am doing now, but not enough words to appreciate one another. 

We have developed enough science and technology to solve all kinds of technical problems, but unfortunately not enough wisdom to solve the basic human problems;

We have enough religions to hate and fight with each other; but unfortunately not enough religions to love each other;

In this material world, we read more, understand less; we eat more, digest less; we earn more, enjoy less; we seek more, share less; we lie more, love less; fight more, forgive less; we act more, think less; neglect more, care less; talk more, listen less; receive more, give less; we preach more, practice less; and   We have learned to make a living, but not a life; here,

We are just adding years to life, but not life to years.

Please, Think about this.
