Gratitude

We demand gratitude and returns for

Every favor we have shown

Every gift we have Given and

Every salary we have paid

Even if it’s a two way deal


Every breath we have taken

Every morsel we have eaten

Every step we have taken

Every scene we have seen

Every sound we have heard and

Every moment we have spent

Every limb we possess and

Every relationship we claim

Are gifts from The Generous One


How much gratitude we steal

Yet, it’s a one way deal!

Why Did the Teacher Slap Me

I was studying in the 6th standard in the village school

One lazy afternoon in the class, the teacher walked in and everyone stood up in respect. Even before the class settled down the teacher signaled me to go towards him.

Though i was a back bencher , i went to him like an obedient pet as he was famous for slapping students. But deep in my mind I always wondered how it felt to be slapped by someone.

My curiosity kept on increasing as i went near him and as soon as my face was at a reachable distance. His hand went up in the air and it reached out to my soft lower ear lobe and like a professional he started squeezing it . I felt of myself as a chewing gum for a few moments.

When he did a few rounds and i had seen enough of butterflies, he told me to go back. As i was going back, i felt like a celebrity as almost a 100 eyes were fixed on me of the classmates

I reached my bench and i was still wondering why it all happened, i couldn’t help but smile while sitting down.

Even before my bums could touch the bench, the teacher gave me yet another signal to go to back to him. This time around i was very confident of the reason and walked up to him in speed and as soon as i reached the distance of his arm span, everything started slowing down.

His hand swung up in the air like a baseball racket and with the perfection of a pro it landed right in the middle of my face, home-run!

It was because of him i realized law of attraction is real ,whether it is for a good or a bad thing.

I am sure he only had the best of intentions, but out of the deep respect we had for teachers in the village none of us students could ask him for the reason. Among all my other teachers , I wish him a great Teacher’s Day. We always learn from them.

May be this is why they say, experience is best teacher ,as even after 25 years of that incident i am still wondering why it all happened..

Can you help me with a guess..?

I live with my parents

No matter how good you are with parents

There is always a level higher

I recently saw a poster where Christiano Ronaldo expressed his great love for his mother and said he will always keep his mother with him , regardless of his fame and busy travels.

For a celebrity of that stature these are beautiful words and a great expression of love and humility before his mother

Recently, I Saw a greater expression of love when I asked one of my successful friends as a passing question, “oh so your parents live with you ..?”

He immediately corrected me and said , “No I live with my parents , I wouldn’t have been here if not for them “

Even though his parents were depending on him, he gave them the credit and chose to express his dependence on them.

So there is always a level, up.

No matter how good you are with parents

There is always a level, higher

The Mouse in your House

A negative thought in your mind

Is like a mouse in the house

You know well the damage just one can cause

Think of having a thousand mice at once

Use of a trap can only catch a few

But prevents not more from entering anew

Find the hole through which it creeps in

Seal it at once and earn a piece of your mind!

They say we have 70000 thoughts a day. And for an average person more than half of it is negative and a lot of the rest is about trivial matters.

While it’s not easy to put a full stop to these, the best temporary solution is to drive away negative thoughts with opposite thoughts which im referring to as the mouse trap ( Eg: to pray for or praise the one whome you are jealous against).

The real solution will be to find the source of these negative thoughts and solve it from the roots which is referred to as sealing the hole in the poem (Eg: To settle a long kept partnership or relationship issue rather than to live with it while it occupies half the space of your mind)

You can never read all the books of this world

You can never smell all the fragrances of this world

You can never taste all the delicacies of this world

You can never touch all the beauty of this world

You can never listen to all the melodies of this world

Yet , If you open the senses of your heart

You can simply remove NEVER from above

You will watch Movie of The Universe, live!
