The essence of Bhagavad Gita; a sacred scripture of Hinduism has always made me ponder on the necessity of my
insecurities, success, and direction of life. Every one of us have myriad of tenuous thoughts running in our minds daily, this is
alone is a battle for us to overcome. Here is the essence of Bhagavad Gita, hope it makes you channel your thoughts into one
that is less grandiose and beneficial for you and those around you:
Why do you worry without cause?
Whom do you fear without reason?
Who can kill you?
The soul is neither born, nor does it die.
Whatever happened, happened for the good;
Whatever is happening, is happening for the good;
Whatever will happen, will also happen for the good only.
You need not have any regrets for the past.
You need not worry for the future.
The present is happening ...
What did you lose that you cry about?
What did you bring with you,
Which you think you have lost?
What did you produce,
Which you think got destroyed?
You did not bring anything,
whatever you have, you received from here.
Whatever you have given, you have given only here.
Whatever you took, you took from God.
Whatever you gave, you gave to Him.
You came empty handed, you will leave empty handed.
What is yours today,
Belonged to someone else yesterday, and
Will belong to someone else the day after tomorrow.
You are mistakenly enjoying the thought that this is yours.
It is this false happiness that is the cause of your sorrows.
Change is the law of the universe.
What you think of as death, is indeed life.
In one instance you can be a millionaire, and
in the other instance you can be steeped in poverty.
Yours and mine, big and small
erase these ideas from your mind.
Then everything is yours and you belong to everyone.
This body is not yours, neither are you of the body.
The body is made of fire, water, air, earth, and
ether, and will disappear into these elements.
But the soul is permanent—so who are you?
Dedicate your being to God.
He is the one to be ultimately relied upon.
Those who know of his support are forever
free from fear, worry and sorrow.
Whatever you do, do it as a dedication to God.
This will bring you the tremendous experience of joy and life-freedom forever.
|" The loftiest towers rise from the ground."
" As you move away from something you get closer to something else."
" When we surrender to God, we surrender to something bigger than
ourselves - to a universe that knows what it's doing. When we stop trying to
control events, they fall into a natural order, an order that works. We're at
rest while a power much greater than our own takes over, and it does a
much better job than we could have done. We learn to trust the power that
holds galaxies together can handle the circumstances of our relatively little
" While I know myself as a creation of God, I am also obligated to realize and
remember that everyone else and everything else are also God's creation."
" Whatever you do may seem insignificant,
but it is most important that you do it."
" You've touched people and know it. You've
touched people and may never know it. Either
way, no matter what your life feels like to you
right now, you have something to give. It is in
the giving to one another that each one of our
lives becomes meaningful."
" Listening with undivided attention and unconditional love is perhaps the greatest gift we can extend to others."
" When things are going very dark and dim, God is actually switching off the lights just before throwing a surprise party!"
" If someone hurts you, don't mind it ever because it is a Law of Nature that the tree that bears the sweetest fruits gets the
maximum number of stones."
" Your life is like a cross-stitch pattern. You see the mess of knots and frays on the
underside, God sees the perfect stitches on the top."
" Faith is not the cake for special occasions but the bread for every day living."
" When God solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; but when He doesn't solve
your problems, He has faith in YOUR abilities!"
|" Never settle for less when you deserve the best; never lower God's
standards, just to please the rest."
" Your footsteps may not always be loud, but your footprints leave a silent
message of where your soul has travelled."
|1 Dollar and 100 Dollar Bill
One day, a one dollar bill and a hundred dollar bill got folded together and began talking about their life experiences.
The hundred dollar bill began to brag: "I've had a great life," he said. "I've been to all the big hotels, Donald Trump himself
used me at his casino, I've been in the wallets of Fortune 500 board members, I've flown from one end of the country to the
other! I've even been in the wallet of two Presidents of the United States, and once when Princess Diana visited the US, she
used me to buy a packet of gum."
In awe, the dollar humbly responded, "Gee, nothing like that has ever happened to me, ...but I have been to church a lot!"
A man had a little daughter-an only and much-beloved child. He lived for her
~ she was his life. So when she became ill and her illness resisted the
efforts of the best obtainable physicians, he became like a man possessed,
moving heaven and earth to bring about her restoration to health.
His best efforts proved unavailing and the child died. The father was totally
irreconcilable. He became a bitter recluse, shutting himself away from his
many friends and refusing every activity that might restore his poise and
bring him back to his normal self.
But one night he had a dream. He was in Heaven, and was witnessing a
grand pageant of all the little child angels. They were marching in an
apparently endless line past the Great White Throne. Every white-robed
angelic tot carried a candle. He noticed that one child's candle was not
lighted. Then he saw that the child with the dark candle was his own little
girl. Rushing to her, while the pageant faltered, he seized her in his arms,
caressed her tenderly, and then asked: "How is it, darling that your candle
alone is unlighted? "Father, they often relight it, but your tears always put it
Just then he awoke from his dream. The lesson was crystal clear, and its effects were immediate. From that hour on he was
not a recluse, but mingled freely and cheerfully with his former friends and associates.
No longer would his little darling's candle be extinguished by his useless tears.

A college student was in a philosophy class, where there was a class discussion about whether or not God exists, The
professor had the following logic:
"Has anyone in this class heard God?" Nobody spoke.
"Has anyone in this class touched God?" Again, nobody spoke.
"Has anyone in this class seen God?" When nobody spoke for the third time, he simply stated, "Then there is no God."
The student did not like the sound of this at all, and asked for permission to speak. The professor granted it, and the student
stood up and asked the following questions of his classmates:
"Has anyone in this class heard our professor's brain?" Silence.
"Has anyone in this class touched our professor's brain?"
"Has anyone in this class seen our professor's brain?" When nobody in the class dared
to speak, the student concluded, "Then, according to our professor's logic, it must be true that our professor has no brain!"
There once was a little boy who wanted to meet God. He knew it was
a long trip to where God lived, so he packed his suitcase with
Twinkies and a six-pack of root beer and he started his journey.
When he had gone about three blocks, he met an old woman. She
was sitting in the park just staring at some pigeons. The boy sat down
next to her and opened his suitcase. He was about to take a drink
from his root beer when he noticed that the old lady looked hungry,
so he offered her a Twinkie. She gratefully accepted it and smiled at
him. Her smile was so pretty that the boy wanted to see it again, so
he offered her a root beer. Once again she smiled at him. The boy
was delighted ! They sat there all afternoon eating and smiling, but
they never said a word.
As it grew dark, the boy realized how tired he was and he got up to
leave, but before he had gone more than a few steps, he turned
around, ran back to the old woman and gave her a hug. She gave
him her biggest smile ever. When the boy opened the door to his own
house a short time later, his mother was surprised by the look of joy
on his face. She asked him, "What did you do today that made you
so happy?" He replied, "I had lunch with God." But before his mother
could respond, he added, "You know what? She's got the most
beautiful smile I've ever seen!"
Meanwhile, the old woman, also radiant with joy, returned to her home. Her son was stunned by the look of peace on her face
and he asked, "Mother, what did you do today that made you so happy?" She replied, "I ate Twinkies in the park with God."
But before her son responded, she added, "You know, he's much younger than I expected."
Years ago in Scotland, the Clark family had a dream. Clark and his wife worked and saved, making plans for their nine
children and themselves to travel to the United States. It had taken years, but they had finally saved enough money and had
gotten passports and reservations for the whole family on a new liner to the United States.
The entire family was filled with anticipation and excitement about their new life.
However, seven days before their departure, the youngest son was bitten by a dog. The doctor sewed up the boy but hung a
yellow sheet on the Clarks' front door. Because of the possibility of rabies, they were being quarantined for fourteen days.
The family's dreams were dashed. They would not be able to make the trip to America as they had planned. The father, filled
with disappointment and anger, stomped to the dock to watch the ship leave - without the Clark family. The father shed tears
of disappointment and cursed both his son and God for their misfortune.
Five days later, the tragic news spread throughout Scotland - the mighty Titanic had sunk. The unsinkable ship had sunk,
taking hundreds of lives with it. The Clark family was to have been on that ship, but because the son had been bitten by a
dog, they were left behind in Scotland.
When Mr. Clark heard the news, he hugged his son and thanked him for saving the family. He thanked God for saving their
lives and turning what he had felt was a tragedy into a blessing.
Although we may not always understand, all things happen for a reason.
