When life gives you lemons, you can either make lemonade and quench your thirst or suck on the rind and make a sour face!


Wise words

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Says:

Many have a problem of letting go of control. This results in anxiety, restlessness and it sours relationships.

Wake up and see, are you really in control? What are you in control of? Perhaps a tiny part of your waking state! Isn’t that so?

You are not in control when you are sleeping or dreaming. You are not in control of thoughts and emotions coming to you. You may choose to express it or not, but they come to you without your prior permission! You realize that most of the functions of your body are not in your control, and the same for your life and the whole universe. Similarly, do you think you are in control of all the events in your life or in the world? That is a joke!

When you look at things from this angle you need not be afraid of losing control, because you have none! Whether you realize it or not, when you let go of your sense of control that is when you truly relax. Your identification of being somebody does not let you relax totally and it keeps your domain limited.

Joke time!

Did you hear about the mathematician who’s afraid of negative numbers?
He will stop at nothing to avoid them.

A mathematician wanders back home at 3a.m. and proceeds to get an earful from his wife.
“You’re late!” She yells.
“You said you’d be home by 11:45!”
“Actually,” the mathematician replies coolly, “I said I’d be home by a quarter of 12.”

A man is talking to GOD.
“GOD, how long is a million years?”
God answers, “To me, it’s about a minute.”
“GOD, how much is a million dollars?”
“To me, it’s a penny.”
“GOD, may I have a penny?”
“Wait a minute.”

And now one with everything.

What did the Buddhist say to the sandwich vendor?
“Make me one with everything.”

Have you ever noticed some people look so beautiful when they smile. Not everybody, but yes I’ve seen many people who look so ordinary only until they smile. For some the smile just lights up their face, for some it makes them look so handsome/ beautiful when they start smiling. Its amazing, you can just fall in love with that person instantly. But of course then they stop smiling and they just look ordinary again or not πŸ˜›

So have you smiled today πŸ˜‰ Who me? Nah, my smile doesn’t make me look beautiful, at all. But I’m sure you are beautiful, so keep smiling πŸ™‚

Oh boy

Scene: A group of boys playing cricket near a parked car.

Matt: Don’t play here. You will hit my car with the ball and this is not a playground.

Boy1: Where should we play then. (No, please uncle, we will play carefully and nothing of that sort.)

Matt: I don’t know, find a playground may be. You have already hit my car a couple of times.

Boy2: Let’s go and play at that corner then.

Boy1: Are you out of your mind, that’s my dad’s car parked over there.
