“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do […]More
All the mistakes I make arise from forsaking my own station and trying to see the object from another person's point of view. --- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The language of silence is more powerful than the sound of words. When something is expressed in silence, it is with the power of thoughts. Such thoughts spread positive vibrations and reach out to the others, in such a way that even the words can't. Also when such kind of positive actions are added to the positive thoughts, the desired effect of that is seen. Then the words are not needed to express good intentions and good wishes. When we are able to express ourselves through the language of silence, we are able to be free from expectations for others to listen to what we are saying. We will only be silently communicating whatever we have to through our good wishes and inspiring others through our positive actions. So we are able to remain content and light, even when we have not yet seen the result of our communication. ~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.

Never look down on anybody, unless you're helping them up. To realize the value of a sister/brother ask someone who doesn't have one. To realize the value of ten years: ask a newly divorced couple. To realize the value of four years: ask a graduate. To realize the value of one year: ask a student who has failed a final exam. To realize the value of nine months: ask a mother who gave birth to a stillborn. To realize the value of one month: ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.. To realize the value of one minute: ask a person who has missed the train, bus or plane. To realize the value of one-second: ask a person who has survived an accident. Time waits for no one. treasure every moment you have. You will treasure it even more when you can share it with someone special. To realize the value of a friend or family member: LOSE ONE.

Jacqui, in the middle.. a school friend who got lost to me about 8 years ago. The usual issue of changing mobiles, emails and living […]More
