A tale of lovers

 

One who loves with eyes closed, is a Lover.

One who loves with eyes open, is a Friend.

One who loves with eyes staring, is a Spouse.

One who loves till you close your eyes, is a Mother.

One who loves without an expression in the eyes, is a Father.

Mother - Introduces you to the world.
Father - Introduces the world to you.

Mother : Gives you life
Father   : Gives you living

Mother : Makes sure you are not starving.
Father  : Makes sure you know the value of starving

Mother : Personifies Care
Father: Personifies Responsibility

Mother : Protects you from a fall
Father : Teaches you to get up from a fall.

Mother : Teaches you walking.
Father : Teaches you walk of life

Mother : Teaches from her own experiences.
Father : Teaches you to learn from your own experiences.


Mother :  Reflects Ideology
Father :  Reflects Reality

Mother's love is known to you since birth.
Father's love is known when you become a Father.

Enjoy what your father says.
Keep loving your mother.

Pen Jee,

I see no diference in what you say, and what maturity is defined by Buddhist Lamas above, for what they mean to say is, nobody is right or wrong from a higher point of  view, for all are puppets moving under His Hukum, it is all His khel.

Sat Sree Akal.

God knows what they mean lol but it could mean that everyone is right in their own mind, even when they're way off track. He deludes us as He wills us to be deluded and gifts us understanding of Truth when He wills it. 

 

This is may be going off on a tangent but the reality is that everyone's at their learning stage as God wills them to be, no matter what level one is at or how far into Maya they are, they're just at their own stage of learning and respecting that and just letting everything and everyone Be without anger is a divine quality.

I'm not sure if you mean this as in literal parents. 

 

A a great lesson I have learned in my life is that family relations are false. They are karam given to you by Maharaj. Yes keep loving them, but as you love everything else, for all is an Illusion, it's all just Him. 

Some people have Awful parents, so the above quote cannot always be taken literally, although the poem is lovely!

ATTITUDE AND KARAM

 

1. Often we hear the line – “We choose our birth, our family members and all the situations that are going to come in our life to learn our lessons.” Choose does not mean we make a selection. If we could choose, we would never choose problems, disease or difficult relationships.

2. Choose our birth and destiny means when we performed our karmas in the previous lives, we chose the karma and thereby chose its consequence. Everything that is going to happen to us in this life is therefore chosen by us when we chose our karmas earlier.

 3. When the consequences come to us in this birth, if we respond through the same negative sanskars like we did last time, it means the same sanskar will get re-enforced. We see same patterns of problems repeating in our life, it is because we are responding through the same sanskar.

 4. ‘Learning our lessons’ means this time if we respond to the situation through a positive sanskar, then the similar pattern of problems in life will stop. Suppose we carry a sanskar of rejection, then we feel rejected in relationships till we learn our lesson, that means change the sanskar. Then we will not feel rejected irrespective of the other’s behaviour.

Blessings

 

We are blessed and we have blessings to give. Count your blessings and give blessings.

Blessings are thoughts filled with great love and kindness, and they can travel long distances.

So generously and freely give blessings.

Give blessings to people you love, as well as to people you don't get along with.

Give blessings and the blessings come through you first, so you become blessed in the process.

Bless and be blessed

You're awesome :) do you make these up yourself? I like the way you keep posting even when you don't get a reply, it's a selfless quality. You have the makings of a great Teacher. 

 

Learn Gurbani, Apply Gurbani 100% to your life, surrender to the Truth frequency. Deliver Gurbani- Teach it, the world needs more teachers :) God Bless.

Pen Jee,

after God, parents are the best well wishers of their children, of course, there are exceptions as in almost any fields, but here it is being to the general rule. Parents love their children the most, even if the child is naughty. Look at Mahabharata, Dhritrashtra the blind king, had a blind love for all his wicked sons, specially the eldest and the most wicked, Duryodhan. That too, knowing how adharmee he was, that is moh of course, but I was just trying to bring out, the love, the paernts have usually for their children, that´s it, rest is all a settlement and a remake of karmas between individuals.

Pen Jee,

no, I do not make none of these articles, I mean to say, I am not the author of any of these pretty knowledegeable pieces.

I do get them here or there, and I do select those which touch my inner being, and then just feel like sharing them.

I receive the football freely, and freely I pass the ball,  it just depends, if you enjoy the game and participate willingly, or let the ball pass by. 

When a writer writes a book, and that book maybe read by millions, but the writer never expects to get replies from his readers, he just wants to share, his points of views, his experiences, or even his fantasies....

There is only one corner of the universe

you can be certain of improving,

and that's your own self.

Aldous Huxley

 

 

The will to win,

the desire to succeed,

the urge to reach your full potential...

these are the keys,

that will unlock

the door to personal excellence

Confucius
 

 

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive.

He who is devoid of the power to forgive

is devoid of the power to love.

There is some good in the worst of us

and some evil in the best of us.

When we discover this,

we are less prone to hate our enemies.

GOD'S TiMiNG
 


After Sept. 11th attack , one company invited the remaining members of other companies who had been decimated by the attack on the Twin Towers to share their available office space. At a morning meeting, the head of security told stories of why these people were alive… and all the stories were just the 'L i T T L E' things.

As you might know, the head of the company survived that day because his son started kindergarten.

Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts.

One woman was late because her alarm clock didn't go off in time.

One of them missed his bus.

One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change.

One's car wouldn't start.

One went back to answer the telephone.

One had a child that dawdled and didn't get ready as soon as he should have.

One couldn't get a taxi.

The one that struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid. That is why he is alive today.

Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone... all the little things that annoy me. I think to myself, this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment...

Next time your morning seems to be going wrong, the children are slow getting dressed, you can't seem to find the car keys, you hit every traffic light, don't get mad or frustrated.
God is at work watching over you.

May God continue to bless you with all those annoying little things and may you remember their possible purpose.

Live Life Always Being Thankful

Positive versus negative

 

An elephant took a bath in a river and was walking on the road. When it neared a bridge, it saw a pig fully soaked in mud coming from the opposite direction. The elephant quietly moved to one side, allowed the dirty pig to pass and then continued its onward journey.

The unclean pig later spoke to its friends in arrogance, “See how big I am; even the elephant was afraid of me and moved to one side to let me pass”.

On hearing this, some elephants questioned their friend, the reason for its action.

Was it out of fear?

The elephant smiled and replied, “I could have easily crushed the pig under my leg, but I was clean and the pig was very unclean.

By crushing it, my leg will become dirty and I wanted to avoid it. Hence, I moved aside.”

This story reveals :Realized souls will avoid contact with negativity, not out of fear, but out of desire to keep away from impurity, though they are strong enough to destroy the impurity.

You need not react to every opinion, every comment, or every situation.

Kick the drama of the negative people, and keep going ahead ....

Beautiful Thought

 

Silence, happiness, love and blessings lead to good health.

Illness is often caused when the body experiences the effect of the soul’s anger, greed, unfulfilled desires, expectations, suppression of feelings and relationships not based on true love.

When we look into  our hearts, we can know where our illness comes from.

There are three ingredients for a long and healthy life: live with attention , awareness and without worry, use time in a worthwhile way, keep your thoughts pure, positive and filled with love.

This will create good health..

THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE NOT THINGS

THEY ARE PEOPLE LIKE YOU

 

Do You Know Why Love Is Blind?
   Love Is Blind Coz....
     "Your Mom Started To Love You Before Seeing Your Face"

 
Everyone May Not Be Good
  But, There's Always Something Good In Everyone
   

Never Judge Anyone Shortly.
       Coz Every Saint Has A Past
         And Every Sinner Has A Future

 
Always Ask God To Give You What You Deserve,

Not What You Desire
   Coz Your Desires May Be Few, But You Deserve A Lot

 
You Can't Tap Your Back For A Job Well Done.
   You Can't Hug Yourself For Comfort
     You Can't Cry On Your Shoulders, When Tears Fall.
      That's Why You Have Friends In Life,

Let The Relationship Continue To Grow.
 
True Friends Are Those You Care For, 

Without Hesitations,
Without Limitations,
     Forgive Without Any Explanations,

And Love Even With Little Communication.

Student Learns what is Greed

 

A student asked his teacher, “What is Greed?”

The teacher said, “In order to answer your question, go through the chocolate factory next to our school and pick the one chocolate you like the most. But there is a rule. As you pass through the factory, you can not turn back. You must pick the chocolate as you go forward only.”

The student went to the chocolate factory. As he walked through, He saw the one chocolate wrapped nicely, he instantly liked it but he wondered that he may find much bigger one further. So, He walked further, then he saw another chocolate.

But again, he thought the same. When he started to reach near the end of the factory, he couldn’t see any chocolates as big as the one he didn’t pick earlier and started to regret his decision of letting it go.

Finally, he gave up. He went back to the teacher with an empty hand and gave an explanation of what he did.

The teacher told him, “You did like the one chocolate very much but still you kept looking for a bigger one. And later you realized that what you let go off was the best chocolate you could find there. That my dear is called Greed.”

*Moral:* _We let go of many good things in our life because of our greed of having even better things. Our Human Nature is such that we always want better and better. But in the search of better, we let go of many good things which could have given us similar satisfaction and made us happy. Learn... make your choice wisely.

Love of a child for his/her mother

Mother sitting in a sad mood

Child : Mom, you are the second most beautiful woman in the world.

Mother: who is the first?

Child: It is also you, but when you smile.

 

 

Satisfaction in Life

A satisfied life is better

than a succesful life

Because our success is measured by others

But our satisfaction is measured

by our own heart mind and soul.

SOME DOHAS OF  BHAGAT KABIR

 

Parnaari ki rachnao, jo lehasun ki khani
Khoone besir khaiy, pragat hoye deewani
परनारी का राचणौ, जिसकी लहसण की खानि
खूणैं बेसिर खाइय, परगट होइ दिवानि
A desire for other's wife is like a mine of garlic.
A person can eat garlic hiding from all.
But the fact of his having consumed garlic,
is clear to anyone who meets him.
 
 
 
Had mein chale so maanava, behad chale so saadh
Had behad dono taje, taako bata agaadh

 

हद में चले सो मानव, बेहद चले सो साध
हद बेहद दोनों तजे, ताको बता अगाध 
The one who is confined in limitations is human,
the one who roams into unlimited, is a Sadhu.
The one who has dropped both limited and unlimited,
unfathomable is his being and understanding.
 
 
 
Ghat kaa pardaa kholkar, sanmukh de deedaar.
Baal sanehi saaiyaa, awe ant kaa yaar.

घट का परदा खोल कर, सन्मुख दे दीदार |
बाल स्नेही साईंयां, आवे अंत का यार
MEANING
He who opens the veil within your being and shows himself  in front of you!!
HE only is our true friend.
At the time of our birth
(here it refers spiritual birth or the moment when this creation came in existence and we as separate being came into picture)
he was the only friend
and when the journey of the soul has come to an end,
I see him only as true friend.
He has been our friend throughout our all lives,
only it took whole journey
from the origin to coming down this material world
and going back to our source
to make us realize this truth!!
 
 
 
Chali jo putli laun ki, thah sindhu ka len
Aaphu gali paani bhai, ulti kahe ko bain
चली जो पुतली लौन की, थाह सिंधु का लेन
आपहू गली पानी भई, उलटी काहे को बैन |
A piece of salt entered the ocean to find its depth
It dissolved and turned into salty water, who will return to tell the depth
MEANING
God is like an ocean.
When a seeker wants to find his depth
and enters into the region of god,
he himself merges into god.
Then the duality, which is necessay to give report,
does not exist.
 
 
 
 
* "Something beautiful on Naam Simran and its utmost importance":
 
Loot sake to loot le, ram naam ki loot
Paache pachhtayega, jab pran jayenge chhoot
लूट सके तो लूट ले, राम नाम की लूट
पाछे पछतायेगा, जब प्राण जायेंगे छूट |

You have the access to the name of Ram

and gather it,  as much as you want,

without any limitations.

then, why don´t you do that?

Otherwise at the last moment of your life

you will feel sorry,

for you shall depart with blackened face,

direct to the court of Dharam Rai or Kal Purukh

I really like this paji Harsharan. I know you've written it here, but I think this would be an appropriate reply to the post below, as it's partly titled "End Life", but I feel this describes life as it should be fulfilled. Life is to praise God. 

Simran Pen Jee,

this is the greatness of interpretations, and yours is quite acceptable.

But believe me, when I wrote that piece above, it was because, when I got that message as a forward, I saw some sort of wisdom in it, and felt sharing it with the sangat here, cause it summarizes, all the needful steps for our goal of becoming one with Him:

Sadh kee sangat: the company of the holy, to get imbued by their finer vibrations

Sewa: nishkam karam/ desireless action

Simran: purity

Guru Jee: Gur parsad

Akal Purukh: The Supreme everlasting  Truth.

 

Sat Sree Akal.

Motherly love

 

There were days when my home used to be filled with laughter, arguments, fights, jokes and loads of mischief.
Books used to be strewn all over the show. Pens and books all over, and clothes messing the rooms, thrown on the beds.
I used to shout at them to tidy up their mess.

In the morning:

One will wake up and say:
Mama I can't find a certain book.
And the other will say: I can't find my perfume,
And one will say: Mama where's my homework.
And  will say: Mama I forgot to complete my homework.

Everyone used to ask about their lost possessions.
And I will say, but take care of your stuff, be responsible, you have to grow up.

And today I stand at the doorway of the room.
The beds are empty.
All the cupboards have only a few pieces of clothes in them.
And what remains is the smell of perfume that lingers in the air.
Everyone had a special smell.
So I take in the smell of their perfume for maybe it will fill the empty ache in my heart.

All I have now is the memory of their laughs and their mischief and their warm hugs.

Today my house is clean and organized and everything is in its place, and it is calm and peaceful.
But it is like a desert with no life in it. Do not become angry with your kids about the mess.

Every time they come to visit and they spend time with us, when they are ready to leave. They pull their bags and it is as if they tug my heart along with it.

They close the door behind them and then I stand still and think of the many times I shouted them to close the doors.

Here I am today, closing my own doors. Nobody opens it besides me. Each one gone to a different city or a different country.
All left to find their own path in life.

They have grown up and I wished that they could stay with me forever.
Dear God :Take care of them & all other children wherever they may be , for you are their guide and their protector ... and always keep them happy..

Fine tuning

If you were to give volume to your thoughts

what would they sound like -

sweet, melodious, or annoying and loud? 

Switch on your volume

every now and then,

and listen to yourself…..

Do some fine tuning if required.
