Nuggets in a Nutshell

Any body who is too stressed or confused should read this again and again..

Nuggets of wisdom in a Nutshell.

Inspired from the Mahabharata…Here is a interesting take on the conversations between Krishna & Today’s Arjun. Read it loud to family.

Truly an inspiring read.

1. Arjun :- I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.
Krishna:- Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.

2. Arjun :- Why has life become complicated now?
Krishna :- Stop analyzing life… It makes it complicated. Just live it.

3. Arjun :- Why are we then constantly unhappy?
Krishna :- Worrying has become your habit. That’s why you are not happy.

4. Arjun :- Why do good people always suffer?
Krishna :- Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer.
With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.

5. Arjun :- You mean to say such experience is useful?
Krishna :- Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. It gives the test first and the lessons later.

6. Arjun :- Because of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading…
Krishna:-If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the way.

7. Arjun :- Does failure hurt more than moving in the right direction?
Krishna:- Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.

8. Arjun :- In tough times, how do you stay motivated?
Krishna :- Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.

9. Arjun :- What surprises you about people?
Krishna :-When they suffer they ask, “why me?” When they prosper, they never ask “Why me?

10. Arjun :- How can I get the best out of life?
Krishna:- Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

11. Arjun :- One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.
Krishna:- There are no unanswered prayers. Keep the faith and drop the fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.

Stay blessed and
Stay Happy Always…..!!!

Up

A fun share!

Bringing out the nuances and idiosyncrasies of the English language.

Do care to read up!

One word in the English language that could be a noun, verb, adj, adv, prep is *UP*.Read until the end… you’ll laugh.

This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is *’UP’*. It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].
It’s easy to understand *UP*, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake *UP*?

At a meeting, why does a topic come *UP*? Why do we speak *UP*, and why are the officers *UP* for election (if there is a tie, it is a toss *UP*) and why is it *UP* to the secretary to write *UP* a report? We call *UP* our friends, brighten *UP* a room, polish *UP* the silver, warm *UP* the leftovers and clean *UP* the kitchen. We lock *UP* the house and fix *UP* the old car.

At other times, this little word has real special meaning. People stir *UP* trouble, line *UP* for tickets, work *UP* an appetite, and think *UP* excuses.

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed *UP* is special.

And this *UP* is confusing: A drain must be opened *UP* because it is blocked *UP*.

We open *UP* a store in the morning but we close it *UP* at night. We seem to be pretty mixed *UP* about *UP*!

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of *UP*, look *UP* the word *UP* in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes *UP* almost 1/4 of the page and can add *UP* to about thirty definitions.

If you are *UP* to it, you might try building *UP* a list of the many ways *UP* is used. It will take *UP* a lot of your time, but if you don’t give *UP*, you may wind *UP* with ( *UP* to) a hundred or more.

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding *UP*. When the sun comes out, we say it is clearing *UP*. When it rains, it soaks *UP* the earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry *UP*. One could go on and on, but I’ll wrap it *UP*, for now…… my time is *UP*!

So, did this whole thing, crack you *UP*?

Sharing this forward or not… well it’s totally *UP* to you!

🤔😇😜

You will find your way…

Your abilities have a way of showing up

In bringing forth your inner purpose.

Even if you haven’t ultilized them yet.

They will be visible to others at some point or other.

If ever you feel you dont have it in you

For whatever reason to pursue your gifts and talents.

Keep the faith and use your abilities

To bring out the best in others.

Reach out to help another trust in themselves.

Give hope wherever you can.

Immerse yourself in spreading goodwill

You will find yourself on the path that’s meant for you.

One moment in time…

Would you take a seat and join me

To behold the breathtaking brilliance

Of rejuvenating reflections.

Where the sky and land merge in the mystical lights

Just sit along blessed to be able to commune with nature

As it evokes its mesmerizing charms

Where each moment feels heavenly

As the winter sun blesses you with its enticing warmth.

Watching the pleasing patterns up in the sky!

What a treat to be able to sit by

And breathe in the refreshing view…

Of vast open spaces that seem so serene

Up above and all around as far as the eyes can see…

Letting go of all that’s spurious.

And just be able to sense the joy of this one moment…

Savvy

The brilliance of this moment is captured so beautifully in this picture (hats off to the unknown photographer) that it seems to be a place to sit a while and reminisce over the simple joys of being… what say?

And speaking of One moment in time…

I cant help but remember the beautiful hit song by the same name. Here are two amazing versions of the song.

One Moment in Time

Caring To Listen

The Heart of Nature
Plays tunes for those who listen.
Pull a single chord in nature
You will hear it commune in the synchrony

Being In nature we understand
The value of balance
And we learn to trust in faith
As we inspire wonders of nature.
And a certain reverence for life.

For in respecting life in and around us
We learn to understand ourselves more.

Nature teaches us much,

If we truly care to listen.

Being you as you are!

Being you as you are

A few tips…
In a world that can entangle you with varied opinions and beliefs…know you are a multifaceted unique individual.

Allow yourself to take time and understand your spectrum of being .
Accepting yourself is a great start to being you.

In knowing your self you are able to discern what your choices are and gradually you are able to be comfortable with your own self. Remember everyone of us here have our own journey of life to explore and fathom.

Allow yourself to explore the truths of your own being.
Be authentic enough to avoid being who you are not . It simply cannot last too long. And it is not a path towards your purpose of being.

Being yourequires a whole lot of respect for yourself as you are. In moments of turmoil and confusion, just say to yourself ‘ I am enough for me’
There is great power of truth in these simple words .
Trust that you are enough for you.

Be all that you are!

Because you truly can!
