Change your vision

There was a millionaire who was bothered by severe eye pain. He consulted so many physicians and was getting his treatment done.  He did not stop consulting galaxy of medical experts; he consumed heavy loads of drugs and underwent hundreds of injections.
But the ache persisted with great vigor than before. At last a monk who was a known expert in treating such patients was called for by the millionaire. The monk understood his problem and said that for some time he should concentrate only on green colors and not to fall his eyes on any other colors.

The millionaire got together a group of painters and purchased barrels of green color and directed that every object his eye was likely to fall to be painted in green color just as the monk had directed.
When the monk came to visit him after few days, the millionaire’s servants ran with buckets of green paints and poured on him since he was in red dress, lest their master not see any other color and his eye ache would come back.                      
Hearing this monk laughed and said “If only you had purchased a pair of green spectacles, worth just a few rupees, you could have saved these walls and trees and pots and all other articles and also could have saved a large share of his fortune. You cannot paint the world green.” 

Let us change our vision and the world will appear accordingly. Let us shape ourselves first.

Let’s change our vision..!!

Think simple, Live simple..

Someday has never come

Planning to do something later is exactly the same as not doing it. Putting off joy and fulfillment until later is the same as abandoning that joy and fulfillment.

It’s easier to say you’ll do it later, but what that almost always means is that you’ll never get it done. Choose to do it now, or not to do it now, but don’t fool yourself by pretending you’ll do it later.

Someday has never come, and never will. Always, the day you have, to act, to speak, to learn, to grow, to love, to experience, is the day you’re in.

Start now, not tomorrow or someday or when you get the chance. Start now, and keep going now, and fill each moment with meaningful substance as it comes.

Right now is when you can live your life, and change your life, and enjoy the exquisite beauty of existence. This moment is when you can step forward and get good, useful, loving and significant things done.

It is truly a joy to be alive, so choose to be fully alive right here and now. Live and give and work and love and experience, not someday, but this very amazing day.

She walks in beauty

She Walks in Beauty..........

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

What it TAKES?

Don’t let the difficulties get you down. Let them get you going.
Seize each opportunity to grow stronger and more purposeful. Discover again and again how good it feels to be confident and effective.
The challenges may indeed be great. With your dynamic resourcefulness, your creativity, your focus and persistence, you are greater than any challenge.
You can make a difference now. You can keep doing so for as long as necessary, until your goal is reached.
Feel the unshakable confidence that comes from successfully navigating through a difficult situation. Feel the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve lifted the world higher through your efforts.
You have what it takes to do what you must. This is your moment to truly shine.
