A compilation of interesting, touching, humorous write-ups that I come across...
In the mail, on the net, in a book....
And believe its worth a read...

been said that God first separated the salt water
from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden,
made animals and fish... All before making a
human. He made and provided what we'd need
before we were born. These are best &
more powerful when eaten raw. We're such
God left us a great clue
as to what foods help what part of our
body! God's Pharmacy!
Amazing!A sliced Carrot
looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris
and radiating lines look just like the human
eye... And YES, science now shows carrots
greatly enhance blood flow to and function
of the eyes.A Tomato has four
chambers and is red. The heart has four
chambers and is red. All of the research shows
tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are
indeed pure heart and blood
food.Grapes hang in a cluster
that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks
like a blood cell and all of the research today
shows grapes are also profound heart and
blood vitalizing food.A Walnut looks like
a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper
cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the
wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like
the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop
more than three (3) dozen
neuron-transmitters for brain
function.Kidney Beans actually heal
and help maintain kidney function and yes, they
look exactly like the human
kidneys.Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb
and many more look just like bones. These foods
specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23%
sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you
don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body
pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak.
These foods replenish the skeletal needs of
the body.Avocados, Eggplant
and Pears target the health and function of the
womb and cervix of the female - they look just
like these organs. Today's research shows that
when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances
hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and
prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is
this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to
grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit.
There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical
constituents of nutrition in each one of these
foods (modern science has only studied and named
about 141 of them).Figs are full of seeds and
hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase
the mobility of male sperm and increase the
numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male
sterility.Sweet Potatoes look like
the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic
index of diabetics.Olives assist the health
and function of the ovaries
Oranges, Grapefruits, and
other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary
glands of the female and actually assist the
health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in
and out of the breasts.Onions look like the
body's cells. Today's research shows onions help
clear waste materials from all of the body cells.
They even produce tears which wash the epithelial
layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic,
also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous
free radicals from the body .
This inspiring story is about Bruce Lee, a
Master of legendary martial art.
“Bruce had me run up to three miles a day, really at a good pace. We’d run the
three miles in twenty-one or twenty-two minutes. Just under eight minutes a
mile [Note: when running on his own in 1968, Lee would get his time down to
six-and-a half minutes per mile.]
So this morning he said to me “We’re going to go five.” I said, “Bruce, I can’t
go five. I’m a hell of a lot older than you are, and I can’t do five.” He said,
“When we get to three, we’ll shift gears and it’s only two more and you’ll do
I said “Okay, hell, I’ll go for it.” So we get to three, we go into the fourth
mile and I’m okay for three or four minutes, and then I really begin to give
out. I’m tired, my heart’s pounding, I can’t go any more and so I say to him,
“Bruce if I run anymore,” –and we’re still running-” if I run any more I’m
liable to have a heart attack and die.”
He said, “Then die.” It made me so mad that I went the full five miles.
Afterward I went to the shower and then I wanted to talk to him about it. I
said, “Why did you say that?”
He said, “Because you might as well be
dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or
anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life. It’ll spread into
your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits.
There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it
kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.” Knowing is not enough we must apply...
Willing is not enough, we must do…
A wise man sat in the audience and cracked a joke. Everybody laughed like crazy. After a moment, he cracked the same joke again. This time, less people laughed. He cracked the same joke again and again. When there is no laughter in the crowd, he smiled and said You can't laugh at the same joke again and again but why do you keep crying over the same thing over and over again?
He had just saved this pregnant dog from a fire
in her house, rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front
yard, while he continued to fight the fire. The
firefighter was afraid of her at first, because he had never been around a
When he finally got done putting the fire out, he
sat down to catch his breath and rest. A photographer from the Charlotte, North
Carolina newspaper, “The Observer,” noticed this red Doberman in the distance
looking at the fireman. He saw her walking straight toward the fireman and
wondered what she was going to do.
As he raised his camera, she came up to the tired
man who had saved her life and the lives of her babies, and kissed him, just as
the photographer snapped this photograph... ♥
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it
is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the
completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude
is shown in acts.
monks were making a pilgrimage to venerate the relics of a great Saint. During
the course of their journey, they came to a river where they met a beautiful
young woman -- an apparently worldly creature, dressed in expensive finery and
with her hair done up in the latest fashion. She was afraid of the current and
afraid of ruining her lovely clothing, so asked the brothers if they might
carry her across the river.
The younger and more exacting of the brothers was offended at the very
idea and turned away with an attitude of disgust. The older brother didn't
hesitate, and quickly picked the woman up on his shoulders, carried her across
the river, and set her down on the other side. She thanked him and went on her
way, and the brother waded back through the waters.
The monks resumed their walk, the older one in perfect equanimity and
enjoying the beautiful countryside, while the younger one grew more and more
brooding and distracted, so much so that he could keep his silence no longer
and suddenly burst out, "Brother, we are taught to avoid contact with
women, and there you were, not just touching a woman, but carrying her on your
The older monk looked at the younger
with a loving, pitiful smile and said, "Brother, I set her down on the
other side of the river; you are still carrying her."
How many of us
are still carrying so many thoughts along with us? Human beings can either
entertain thoughts or discard them, but many still hold onto it. Like other
monk in the story, how many worries, negative thoughts, low energy, and
pre-conditioned thoughts we carry within us?
Once there was a King, in a far far away land.
He was strong and mighty. He had an army of thousands of soldiers. His soldiers
were his greatest strength. He won all wars he had ever fought in his lifetime.
Some people said that he won because he was the most disciplined leader, some
said that he had the charisma to inspire his men, some thought it was because
it was in his fate and one section thought because he honored his word.
However, lately the king had started to face
some problems in his sleep routine. He couldn't sleep well at night. Something
disturbed him. He complained to his Royal Priest that he was losing all battles
in his dreams. His priest was extremely knowledgeable & clever, He realized
soon that King was unable to sleep as he wasn’t concentrating on what he had
instead was obsessed with thinking of new battles to conquer newer pastures.
Understanding the key issue the Priest
suggested a remedy to the King, He asked the King to do the following task at 4
am tomorrow. King was asked to keep his eyes fixed at a target 10 meters away
from him, while walking a muddy path. The King was anxious to know how this
would help achieve a peaceful sleep and kept tossing in the bed all night. At
sharp 4 am, royal guards knocked at the King's door to see the King ready for
the activity. He came down to his central kingdom ground. It was summer then so
the morning sun was just about to rise. The sky was glowing in beautiful orange
hues. The priest asked the king to start. The King started walking the muddy
path, while reminding himself that he had to keep his eyes glued to the target
or else he would have to do this all over again tomorrow at 4 am. The initial
few steps that the King took were with a lot of caution but gradually his
confidence got built and he started walking the path a little faster. The King
couldn't help thinking about the time when he would reach the target. He was so
engrossed in thinking about the future that he didn't realize that his right
foot got stuck in a puddle. Now, for a minute, he looked at his stuck feet,
which now was fully immersed in the mud and figured out how he would get out
from this mess. He gently shoved off the slimy mud in excess to continue
walking. But, soon he realized that his target was nowhere in sight. He looked
at the Priest inquisitively but the Priest looked as calm as ever. He then
realized that because he didn't do the exercise as instructed, the Priest would
have him do it again tomorrow morning 4 am.
He couldn't sleep again that night. His failure
to keep sight of his target was worrying him. The king had never lost before.
It was a huge blow for him. However, he was even more determined now to not
lose focus on the target. He was waiting for the dawn to break. The Royal
guards were waiting outside the door at 4 am. The King quickly moved out of the
royal door to rush his way to the royal ground where the priest was already
waiting for him. The King bowed to the Priest in respect before starting; the
Priest gave a gentle smile. The King began walking once again, with his eyes
affix at the target. This time he was more cautious of every step that he took.
He walked slow but never lost sight of the target. But he was constantly
reminded of his failure yesterday and at every step, was apprehensive that he
would eventually get stuck again in the same puddle. He was worried, so he paced
down drastically when he approached that puddle. He walked a little to the left
to avoid that puddle, looking straight at the target. His right leg was just
about to slip in the puddle but because he was slow, he managed to maintain his
balance. He was relieved yet nervous. He marched ahead as he was in a hurry to
finish his task. After three quick steps, he tripped over a small stone and
fell over his face on the ground. All his guards rushed towards him to help
him. He got up with their help but he knew that the target would not be there
as he was unsuccessful once again to keep his eyes on the target at all times.
The King was dejected and hurt. He summoned the
Priest to his royal chamber in the evening. The King asked why he couldn't do
this simple task, when he had won so many difficult battles before. The Priest
smiled and told him that the answer to his question was there in his mind. The
King was perplexed, he didn't know what the Priest wanted to convey. The Priest
smiled and then said " King you have won many battles in the field because
you didn't allow your mind to wander. Today, you are fighting a war with your
own mind.". The King requested the Priest to explain why he couldn't focus
his mind on the target. The Priest explained both the instances. He said,
"My dear King, when you were walking the path for the first time, your
mind was only fixed at the target. You didn't realize that there would be
hurdles in your path, which is why you were pacing your steps on an unknown
path. Your mind was wandering in the future; you were busy thinking about how
you would get some good sleep after this simple activity. You were not alert
about your present surroundings." The King nodded in approval but asked
the Priest why he lost the second time. He told the Priest that he was not
thinking about the future then. The Priest answered- “Yes, you are right. In
the second time that you undertook this activity, you were not thinking of the
future. But, you were thinking of your previous experience. You were worried
about what happened to you last time should not happen to you again. You kept
dwelling on your past and in nervousness did not anticipate the stone in the
path, which is why you tripped." The King understood what the Priest
wanted to teach him and bent before him in honor. The Priest had given the King
the answer to his questions. That night, before sleeping, the King wrote a page
in his Diary.
Keeping your eyes on the target at all times
is important but what is most important is to live in the present.
Problems are bound to come but don't let one
bad experience ruin your confidence in yourself
Walking slow enables you to keep your balance
Never take for granted what is going to come
Worrying about the past or the future doesn't
let me sleep !
That night, the
King slept peacefully. He realized that he must not waste time worrying about
the past or the future. It is only this moment which is the most precious to
Not many of us realize how simple life is. We
invest so much time thinking about either the future or the past that we forget
what life has to offer us right here and right now.
