How many of us have ever held God’s shepherd in their arms? May be very few………………Once a bereaved soul was tired, tied and pulled down heavily by grief and pain………………it seems as if it was the end of the world to it. God was watching this……………………he then silently came down and sit beside the soul and lifted all his pain slowly so that the soul can get the relief………..once the pain was pulled out the soul felt so vacuum and each day it was becoming heavier……….the soul could not breathe properly, it felt suffocated, it felt so heavy…………..this too was observed by God , then he whispered in the ears of the soul: ” its not vacuum, you are carrying my shepherd , the shepherd of happiness”.
In the movie Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, Amitabh Bachchan was seen in a bohemian avatar in a song……..the lyrics are absolutely magnificent and the music even. Generally people look down to those bohemians in disdain………..with not so trustworthy way…………..actually their way of living life and their attire and the incidents which took place with them are often very unusual, unfamiliar and that’s why people distrust them. But I feel one should feel blessed to find such people at least once in a lifetime……………you never know they have uncanny ability to see through people’s problem, their accurate analysis of people’s pain and the accurate solving no matter how much they are humiliated in life sometimes they come to us for some definite reasons or may teach us something we don’t know and show us the real path of living life. They are spiritually so rich that they don’t bother about the rest of the world……….they attract people like anything……one should listen to them does not matter if you follow it or not but have a ear to what they want to say………..you never know God’s gifts are found in the most trickiest places and from the most unexpected people;)
My home country, Philippines declared a national state of emergency following the recent typhoon, which was considered the strongest typhoon in the world. Millions were left homeless, and without a family.
Help started pouring from other countries, which was really amazing.
Today, allow me to share some inspiring stories of heroism from children around the world.
TOKYO-Thousands of miles in terms of distance certainly was not enough to keep six-year old Shoichi Kondoh from feeling compassion for Filipinos, not thinking twice about giving away his painstakingly saved-up piggyback savings as part of the ever-growing international relief aid.
Accompanied by his mother, Miho Kondoh, Shoichi visited the Philippine Embassy in Japan to hand over JPY 5,000. Shoichi said he was moved to donate his savings after witnessing the extent of destruction the Philippines experienced from Super Typhoon Yolanda on television.
Consul Dexter Lao expressed the embassy’s gratitude for the sincere gesture…

IT IS SAID THAT PEOPLE WITH LESSER WORDS ARE WISER………………AGREE???
In this big world in order to survive we need to struggle a lot, we need to work hard, need to be updated, or else we will succumb to the lap of lethargy. When nobody is there to bother about us, nobody is there to guide us, its time to whip yourself up…………..that means charge up yourself, and take charge of your own life , make yourself updated, well informed, and train yourself for the occupation you are going to pursue. Be hard to yourself, yeah its OK to relax sometimes but always put an imaginary deadline for yourself and work according to that. Eat in the right time, exercise regularly, read a lot of books, cultivate one hobby, grow your interest in various things, there are so many things to learn and know in this huge universe………have you ever wanted to know from the people those who do skydiving…..how do they feel while doing so? How amazing and adventurous they are!!! Some of us work in scheduled hours, some of us has free lancing work, but maintaining a routine is very important for all of us. Be your own friend, you can be your own guide, and always remember those red rods[impression of the whips charged on your back by yourself] when you feel enough has been done by me.Nothing is enough, its always miles to go before a sleep. Good Day.
We prefer to walk on the road which is tried and tested and its less troublesome………how many of us have tried a road less traveled ? How many of us seriously follow our gut feelings ? Almost all of us have some inner voice [gut feeling] in certain circumstances but we generally ignore those weird signals of our sixth sense thinking that it could be embarrassing for us, nobody will accept our choices, we will be ridiculed etc, but that is the way made exclusively for us to follow in order to achieve maximum success , we never know where our gut feeling can take us to……..it can be a totally stranger’s path, it may not appear rosy at first glance, may not seem promising but still somebody inside is pushing us towards it…….. at that time we should follow our inner voice. There is a famous say that the most risky way to live life is not taking any risk at all………….very true, may be the tried and tested path is not made for all of us, some people are born to make it great, only thing we need to understand the path the signal of our inner voice, it will definitely guide us where we are destined to be.
Bajate Raho is a recent Bollywood movie with Tushar and Bishakha in the lead role, its tit for tat for the wrongdoers of the society. It has come out well, giving eye opening inspiration to the young generation who want real-time “Bajate Raho”[a kind of sting operation] in the society against the corrupted business leaders, bureaucrats, politicians and their associates. We can implement these highly motivated mission against anybody whom we want to be exposed in the society who after several wrongdoings still enjoying the status of high profiles and God knows what they do with the money of the public for fulfilling their self satisfying goals. There was a movie a few years back Khosla ka Ghosla which was against the real estate businessman and how a group of theater personas had taken the revenge against him, very smart movie. We can take inspiration from those movies and keep on Bajate Raho with those wrongdoers throughout our life.
Many a times in our life we feel stagnant, depressed, inactive, our mind succumb into boredom, it seems as if we have reached the dead end of life…………..no hope no light………….many a times it happens with us, it can be sorrows more than expected, it can be super satisfied life with all kinds of luxuries which give us mere boredom………..or may be none of them, even after living a normal life sometimes we feel its tiring, not at all productive and we cannot depend on friends always they may give useful advice but those may not be applicable for us….. at that time we need some self motivation………to motivate ourselves we need to know about ourselves thoroughly, what are the strengths and weaknesses we have, and how can we enhance our strength and overcome our weaknesses…. we can cultivate any hobby, it can be gardening, playing a guitar, reading those books by our favorite authors, nature painting, if not anything then we need to talk to ourselves, we have to ask ourselves how to get rid of these boredom, how do overcome depression, how to make ourselves happy.We have to concentrate on our passion, whats the first thing we always wanted to do, to help somebody, to make a philanthropic move, suddenly we can visit an old age home as a surprise visitor and talk to our older guardian, in order to make them happy we may feel we are recharged for our next move, many of us have the passion for building a stout physique they regularly go to gym, talk to gym instructor about different kind of protein diet, gym lessons etc, seeing them others also feel energized.

It can motivate you when you want it. Listen to your mind, its extremely important. It will guide you always. Be your own mentor, be your own guide. Be self motivated.
It is seen that people have a tendency to tend towards vertical growth as it is speedy and less time consuming and easier whereas horizontal growth takes a lot of time but its truly worthy in the long run. It needs patience, perseverance, huge energy more dedication but the growth is substantial. It needs a lot of base work, ground work, strategy, planning, lots and lots of man power………………this kind of growth structure is much more money generating , it gives much better industrial growth, better agricultural growth, broader educational scope and many more things. This way only we can say a progressive state can grow. Only one sector of people are growing higher and higher and rest of the things are getting lesser importance and gradually people have declined interest towards them, this cannot be said as a healthy growth structure.Vertical growth is limited in a certain sphere whereas horizontal growth has a broad wide spectrum where the possibility of progress is unlimited. In the vertical structure growth people’s mindset also become very narrow and meager……………….they only believe in their own selfish interest and ignore the rest of the society, money is not a constraint these days, and there are endless educational opportunity with which anybody can have a high bucks job, luxurious lives, early settlements, family, kids, cars, apartments huge bank balances, shares and other assets within a short span everybody is acquiring all these things and life become saturated after a certain point of time. Where are those visionary leaders? Who will make us understand that this kind of growth can only lead to explosion the higher the graph the higher the chances of downfall because ground work is not at all existed in vertical growth. It cannot be a base of an industry, it cannot be a base of state where not only few lakhs people’s interest is involved where crores and crores of people’s interest is involved. All our investors, industrialists, are aware about what I have written so far, but everybody is after easy growth, easy money, nobody is there to wait for another 20-25 years even a few more to see or visualize a steady progress everywhere. In this growth structure agro based industry is much more affected. We all are forgetting that food is the main source of energy, the first living resource for any human being. If we ignore all these facts sooner the human civilization will be at the doorstep of destruction.
What does a potter do? they mix water with earth and make it a semi solid form to give shapes of various kinds. The human soul too needs dilution of egos, pride, self righteousness to be a good learner…………………a good teacher can understand how to make his/her students like a soil mixed up with water in equal proportion in order to shape their talents.All students are equal to the teacher. They only differ by their ability to grasp, their intelligence, their concentration to read and write and most importantly the power of listening. How much a student can remember by listening the lecture of their teachers can differ him or her from other students. In Ancient India Veda was only remembered in memory and it was chanted by the gurus to their disciples thus it was carried forward several hundred years only by power of listening , power of memory. It was never in written form initially.
After giving shapes to the earthenware the potter put them in the raw conditions in the open sunlight so that they can be strengthened furthermore and can serve the purpose for which they are molded. All human being irrespective of any background, cast, nation, religion have come to serve their purpose in this world. Only a good guru can identify and mold his/ her students to proper shape so that they can serve the purpose for which they are born. Continue reading “making good students is a kind of pottery”
