    Overflow

      A great Japanese master received a university professor who came to enquire about wisdom. The master served tea. He poured his visitor's cup full, and then kept on pouring. The professor watched the overflow until he could no longer restrain himself. 'It is overfull. No...

    Present

    If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you have that money can't buy. "Today is a gift, that's why it is called the present." . . . There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations. Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness...

    To Forget A Crime

    Someone died on May, 2008. Somebody killed somebody. I witnessed it. A crime of Passion. Yet, I crawled...tried to save my life. Now, it's April 2011, three years later.. I still have the glimpse of a bloody scene... .......when a dagger mercilessly slashed two hearts and left it...

    Do Dogs Go To Heaven?

    My first dog was young when he got run down by a lorry, and I blame my-self. I was 10yrs old and riding my bike, I got off the road when I heard the lorry, but my dog didn't and the lorry driver was going so fast he didn't even stop. It was a horrible scene. I like to think of...

    My Dad Used To Say...

    That there will come a day when people will be ashamed to be called rich. I think that time may be a long wait. Our world is becoming more like: "the more I have the more I want" Is there an answer to this problem?   It's hard but it's harder to ignore it.

    Listen

    I walked through the forest today. When I stopped and listened, I finally heard the birds singing. I haven't been listening lately. I need to listen more. Listen. I'm listening...   ...to the sound of silence.

    I Nearly Died A Few Times

    I don't like to talk about this much. I feel like I'm looking for sympathy or something. I've come close to death a few times, I seemed to be accident prone in my younger days. But now I'm older, calmer, more aware and I have a great fear. To experience a near death accident...
