    Rest, Relaxation And Reality

    I am back from a week's vacation from a place where I had no work or chores. I spent a week doing nothing except go for a walk, read newspapers, eat and relax. That one week did a whole lot of good for me. I went to bed around 9 or 10 p.m and woke up at 6 a.m. So...

    Blessed Are Those Who Sleep

    I envy people who sleep anywhere, like bus, train, car and railway station. Lucky guys. I cant sleep unless I am in a place I like and am used to. Finally it boils down to one thing. That I must be able to sleep peacefully, all the money and education and jobs cannot...

    Live In Love

    One minute of joy and love is eternity, so are one good thought, one good deed and a big laugh. Add more of this. I am bad in math, you add up. Live in love.

    In The Company Of The Good

     Being among people who have no evil intentions and those who think good thoughts gives us a sense of security and peace of mind. In Hinduism it is called Satsang (in the company of the good).  That is the effect that groups have on us. Lots of people chanting and doing...

    Joy And Good Health

    Finding Happiness

    Imagine someone searching  for glasses everywhere when he is wearing them. Such is the condition of a person who is looking for happiness when it is already there in his mind. He simply has to see it and take it!  There is a joke about a person who is looking for a coin...

    Avoiding The Unwanted

    In my childhood, we had a friendly doctor. His way of talking was funny in that he would treat everything lightly. Tell him your leg pains when you walked he would say, 'don't walk'. Tell him 'my chest pains when I breathe,' he would say 'dont breathe'. We would laugh, because...

    Compromise And Climbdown

    Well, I wonder how many times I have said 'I wont do this or that' and have ended up doing them. Why can't I accept and do things with an open mind. When I accept, I am happy. Refusal to accept leads to friction.It is always a climbdown in life, compromise and acceptance of fate...

    List Of Joy

    I take a paper and write a list of things I like and things I dont like.  If the list of things I like is big, I am enjoying life and if the other one is longer, I am miserable. Thinking of things I like and doing what I love makes me feel I am on cloud nine. Sometimes I...

    Words As Money

    Have You Seen A Perfect Sunrise?

    There is no such thing called perfection. Have you seen a perfect sunrise, sunset, rainbow, ripple, or whatever which is part of nature. If  you watch a sunrise, do you compare it with yesterday's sunrise? Each is unique. Give a sunrise to an artist and he would change it. Give...

    Seize The Moment

    I remember a joke. A great flood hits a city and people are being evacuated. The house of a firm believer in god is flooded. A man in a  boat approaches him to rescue him, but he rejects help and says and 'god will save me'. The flood waters reach the second floor, again the...

    Callous And Indifferent

    The words callousness, indifference and detachment have different meanings. Callous could mean we dont even know what is happening, indifferent is not reacting after knowing. Above these two is detachment. This is knowing and reacting, if need be, but not attaching oneself...
