An elderly Cherokee Native American was teaching his grandchildren about life...
He said to them, "A fight is going on inside me, it is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
One wolf is evil -- he is fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, competition, superiority, and ego.
The other is good---he is joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.
This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too."
They thought about it for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"
The old Cherokee simply replied: "The one you feed".
Change your Thoughts - Change your Outlook;
Change your Outlook - Change your World.

At least two people in this world love you so much they would die for you.
At least fifteen people in this world love you in some way.
The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.
A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
You mean the world to someone.
If not for you, someone may not be living.
You are special and unique.
There is someone that you don't even know exists, who loves you.
When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.
When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely
turned your back on the world.
When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you believe in yourself, probably, sooner or later, you will get it.
Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.
Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know.
If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.

During a momentous battle, a Japanese general decided to attack even though his army was greatly outnumbered. He was confident they would win, but his men were filled with doubt. On the way to the battle, they stopped at a religious shrine. After praying with the men, the general took out a coin and said, "I shall now toss this coin. If it is heads, we shall win. If tails, we shall lose. Destiny will now reveal itself."
He threw the coin into the air and all watched intently as it landed. It was heads. The soldiers were so overjoyed and filled with confidence that they vigorously attacked the enemy and were victorious. After the battle, a lieutenant remarked to the general, "No one can change destiny."
"Quite right," the general replied as he showed the lieutenant the coin, which had heads on both sides.

I was reading a article about high definition TV's that get you the real image, much better quality then the regular TV. It said, now we will have different channels for HDTV flooding the market. Some of the channels have actually been around and many more are on their way to the huge consumer market.
One group of people that found HDTV really troublesome were the actresses. The extent of makeup's they wear is very visible on HDTV, which actually is not visible at all on the regular TV's. Some actresses were really upset that HDTV showed the audience the real images instead of the images they wanted to project.
Many of us do the same when we enter the job market. Through our resumes and interviews, we try to project ourselves as the best suited candidate for the job, which in reality, may or may not be the case. Some of us twist our skills and accomplishments to the requirement of the position, in effect, we project our selves.
Girls have a tendency to wear makeup, they do it to make them look more beautiful, so that smart guys give them a good look and ask them out for a date. I am not implying that all of them do it like that, Some of the girls I have seen over the years have been really gorgeous, really beautiful, others just portray themselves as beautiful. One wise man once told me if you really want to see if a girl or a lady is really beautiful, see her first thing in the morning, If she posses real beauty, it will show right there or it was just artificial
Whenever I go to buy a new car, all the sales persons in all different showrooms I visit, try to convince me that the vehicle they are offering meets my needs and suits my interests then any other car n the face of earth. How can so many people with so many different opinions be right at the same time? I did settle for a Honda Accord. It kept me wondering that projections are not only done in humans, but we also do the same for possessions and things.
Sometimes I just wonder, where does reality fits into all this imaginations and projections, it also makes me wonder about the moments in life, when we tend to be real and true to ourselves. Taking a bath and shaving were some of the moments we used to be closest to our true self, just I, me and myself, no clothes or stuff to make me look someone else, but now with so many hairstyling products, hairstyles, beards, specially the different variation of French beards, projecting ourselves has paved its way into our utmost private moments
There was a time when we used to make love to our spouses, those small whispers, lighting arrangement, fragrances, aromas, special preparations……..we used to love, real love, a process. The goal was to love and be loved, we used to be open and loving, it was said to be the moment one is closest to experiencing the divine. Now, all small talk is about sex, performance and orgasm, the peak, the expectations. I believe we are loosing the real love somewhere in the middle. Every one is different, every life is different, I can not stand in any ones shoes, and you have a better understanding of your own life. If it still is really the Love in your life, congratulations, your private moments are still yours, you do value reality
I can not describe, what it means to be real, but trust me, it does feel great, whenever we are closest to ourselves. It’s a great team work, Actor, Observer and Observed i.e. I , me & myself. May be it’s the first rule to achieve the highest fulfillment
The two words on the top of the sacred
Its about the REAL self

I know, it has been a long time.
So did you enjoy the movie?
I sure did
You cried so many times during the movie
It was just a kids movie, you are a grown up now, why you would cry at such a kids movie
I don’t know, I just did
What made you cry?
No clue, it was just impulsive
You mean that you did not choose to cry, it just happened
Do you have any idea why would a kid’s movie based on “Spelling Bee” would make you cry impulsively?
Honeslty no idea
When was the last time you cried while watching a movie?
I rememdber crying during a movie before, but don’t remember when
Hmmm, interesting, lets discuss it
Impulse, Lets talk about impulse
It is something right now, sometimes you yourself cannot explain certain things, but you know you have to do it; you just don’t have any reasons to explain
Therefore, you mean you take the decision without any reason
So if you do not have any reason, are you sure you are the one taking the decision
What do you mean?
In plain language, I am asking you that are you the one taking impulsive decisions
Yes I am
Then why don’t you have any reasons for your decisions
Because they are impulsive
You mean to say you do not have a say in your impulsive decisions
No, I do not
But you still insist these are your own decisions, even if you don’t have choice or say in those decisions, that doesn’t make any sense, your decisions would be the ones that you choose or at least have a say in it.
But my mind makes those decisions for me, these decision are made at subconscious level, they are not made by my conscious mind
Ahaaan, so since it your own subconscious making decisions for you, therefore you believe that you own those decisions
So if I understand correctly, your subconscious is your own, very unique to you
I will not go in those psychological details now, debating with you on the words, rather I would choose to help you understand the much larger picture
What exactly are you talking about?
You do not own consciousness, you experience it
What do you mean by that?
Just as you cannot own happiness, joy and love, you cannot own consciousness; you can experience it and be a part of it, if you choose to
But we were talking about impulse and here you are explaining consciousness to me
We are getting there Rizwan
You are part of a collective consciousness, that includes all creations, every being, you are being guided all the times
Guided, for what, by whom
Guided by the divine consciousness, to help you be aligned with your true self
Aligned, you mean…
I mean getting in harmony with the universal consciousness, getting the continuous non-stop guidance from there
Since you are in the skies right now, flying high in the airplane, let me explain you with the airplane metaphor, it would be easier to understand that way
Ok, go ahead
Where did you start your flight?
And where are you flying
San Francisco CA
You know the pilot who flies the plane for you, has a defined path, which would take him directly to the airport at San Francisco, and if he flies on the same path, he would get there exactly as you need to go
Yes they always do
I know they always do, but what if I tell you that during the flight 90% of the time, the plane is off its path
What, if 90% of the time it is off its path, how do most of them get to their correct destinations without getting lost
They just keep coming back
Yes, they keep coming back, all the time
they have a central control tower, that has the live data of al the flights in the air with their respective positions any given point in time, it monitors all the flights, provides pilots with a projected path and makes it easier for them to know if they are deviating from the path and helps them come back without going much astray
Then they have people monitoring all the flights from the tower, so incase pilot doesn’t give attention to the defined path, and starts getting astray, they call him right away to let him know the situation and ask him to correct immediately
Hmmm, yeah I have seen control towers in some movies
It is a beautiful metaphor Rizwan; this metaphor will help you understand the phenomenon of divine guidance and support
Impulse Rizwan, spontaneity, 6th sense, whatever you may choose to call it
I did not understand
Some of your folks also call it inner voice, do you know what voice I am talking about
I guess I do
It is the voice that comes from within, on trivial or important matters, sometimes you listen to it; sometimes you do not listen and ignore it
It is the mechanism of the universal consciousness to keep you aligned, keeps you connected all the times
Would that mean we could never go astray?
Yes in ideal conditions, but Rizwan, you are a step ahead, you are not a puppet, that follows instructions and has no choices, rather you have your own sets of choices that is potentially unlimited, and unfortunately, one of your choices widely used is to ignore those inner thoughts and feelings
Yes, you just ignore it, its just like radio frequency, you just change the station to the material world full of illusions and choose to ignore the divine interventions, then there comes a time, when you fail to even remember that such a station ever existed, since you become so used to your fancy, materialistic, illusory world, you choose to tune into that all the time.
So you are telling me that I have choices all the time, and if I choose to listen, the divine will guide me all the time
Not that it will, it always does, it is your choice if you choose to realize your inner self, your inner channel of communication with the divine
Does that mean, whenever I have an impulse, its divine intervention, and I should listen
Not all your inner voices are divine; not all your impulses are real
You mean there is someone else who also speaks to me
Some of the impulses are artificially created by the man made world, like advertisement, promotions, music, they make you do thing which you believe are impulses and you choose to label it that way, actually they are the influences on you, some even at your subliminal level, you need to differentiate between the two
I have read a few things about subliminal advertisement; it reaches your mind directly while your ears cannot listen to it
However the divine intervention reaches your heart, it guides you,
Through your feelings
Have you ever felt uneasy about some situations without any reason, have your ever had an event where your 6th sense guided you for something and it turned out to be right
Yes, I have had those incidences
Have you ever had coincidences?
Yes lots of time, someone I need meets me out of nowhere, something I need to happen, happens right away, it amazes me so much
Those are divine interventions too, but what if I tell you that you have a big say in making those coincidences happen
I have a say in it, which means I can create my own coincidences
Rizwan, you can create your own miracles, you can make any thing happen, you have choices, which come from a realm of infinite potentiality, your choices are unlimited, we have talked about it earlier as well
Yes, I remember
First you have to realize your unconsciousness, that it exists, that’s the first step, secondly you start observing your own feelings, you will have to understand that divine has numerous ways to communicate with you, one of those are your own feelings, start observing them, understand them and see the magic happen
What about miracle?
you get connected to the universal consciousness, you enter the realm of unlimited potentiality, your choices become unlimited, now you are not limited to your own self, you are the one with unlimited potential, all you have to do is to intend about any thing you desire and that’s it
Means whatever I desire would happen,
Yes, once you intend, the whole universe starts working for you, to make your desire happen, you may not realize its work, but it does, very efficiently and silently
Does not make sense to me, you mean the whole universe starts working just for me to make my desire happen
Yes it does, you drive a car Rizwan
Yes I do
Let us say you want to drive the car, you are standing outside the car, what would be your first step if you want to drive it
I will put the keys in the ignition
Even before that Rizwan, even before that
Before using the ignition, nothing, there is nothing I would do to start the car before putting the keys in the ignition
Yes, you would, and you always do it, first thing, you would need to unlock the car
That the first step, second, you would need to enter the car and take the drivers seat, these are the things you would do before you use the keys
You are right
That the same way it works for the consciousness, first you would need to realize that there is a universal consciousness that exists and you are connected to it, you will then need to unlock you own true self and open up your self to be accepted as the part of universal consciousness, it would not accept you wearing any masks, as your worldly people do, there you would have to be your own self, the very true pure being that you are, only then you will be able to get connected, once you unlock your true self, you will become part of the universal consciousness. In your plain language, these are the pre requisites for the course in miracles
Once you become the part of the universal consciousness, all you need to do is to Intend, just like you put the keys in the ignitions, you show the car your intention that you intend to start the car and use it to go to your destination. All you do is to put the keys in the ignition, rest of it happens automatically, the oil, the gas, the engine, very thing works together seamlessly just to make your intention happen. It is same with the universal consciousness, you just intend and the whole universe starts working for you seamlessly, without your even realizing it.
You explained such a difficult thing so easily
Now it is your choice if you want to understand and adopt your learning as a part of your life
If the rewards are so nice, why not, I sure will
it is not easy Rizwan, but yet it makes every thing so easy, you intend and it happens right away, there is no concept of time in the divine, it is just NOW, so all your intentions manifest themselves right away, there is no waiting period, you live in the world of time and distance, but once your enter the realm, there is no time, no waiting, every thing happens in the same moment, your intention and its manifestation happen simultaneously, and in your world they call it miracle,
Interesting, so let me start my course in miracles right now
All the very best Rizwan, the only trick is to listen to your inner channel, you will never be astray, and all your miracles will be on your fingertips, good luck once again
And it all vanished once again
Hey Rizwan, you in there, what are you doing
I m unlocking my self
You and your philosophies Rizwan
I am serious; I am trying to unlock my self
Rizwan, do me a favor, could you first unlock the door so I can come in
Rizwan, could we go for a movie tonight, I want to watch this new movie we talked about, conversations with God
I already bought the tickets online
Wow what a coincidence
You make your own coincidences
I do not know about your philosophies about creating coincidences, but I know that right now I have to create the report I have to submit tomorrow morning, you can go ahead and create whatever you want to create
And she slammed to door on me
So you are ready for your creation Rizwan
I guess I am
It seems improbable at first, but once you unlock your self and join the realm of infinite possibilities, then there is no end, your intention becomes the reality and you become the creator of your life, its very fulfilling Rizwan, realizing and unleashing your true potential and experiencing it first hand
I sure will do my best
Every thing is created twice, first in your mind, then manifests in materiality, you may not have any say in the later, but the former is all yours…….and in the realm there is no time difference between the two…….they happen simultaneously…..
And the voice disappeared with following words
There are two kinds of beings, those who do wonders and others who keep wondering...

it just touched me, see if it touches you
Customer Service (CS) Rep. : Yes, Ma'am, how can I help you today?
Customer: Well, after much consideration, I've decided to install LOVE.
Can you guide me through the process?
CS Rep. : Yes, I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?
Customer: Well, I'm not very technical, but I think I'm ready to install now. What do I do first?
CS Rep. : The first step is to open your HEART. Have you located your HEART ma'am?
Customer: Yes I have, but there are several other programs running right now.
Is it okay to install while they are running?
CS Rep. : What programs are running ma'am?
Customer: Let's see, I have PAST-HURT.EXE, LOW-ESTEEM.EXE, GRUDGE.EXE,
and RESENTMENT.COM running right now.
CS Rep. : No problem. LOVE will gradually erase PAST-HURT.EXE from your current
operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory, but it will no longer disrupt other
programs. LOVE will eventually overwrite LOW-ESTEEM.EXE with a module of its own called
HIGH-ESTEEM.EXE. However, you have to completely turn off GRUDGE.EXE and
RESENTMENT.COM. Those programs prevent LOVE from being properly installed.
Can you turn those off ma'am?
Customer: I don't know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?
CS Rep. : My pleasure. Go to your Start menu and invoke FORGIVENESS.EXE.
Do this as many times as necessary until GRUDGE.EXE and RESENTMENT.COM have
been completely erased.
Customer: Okay, done. LOVE has started installing itself automatically. Is that normal?
CS Rep. : Yes. You should receive a message that says it will reinstall for the life of your HEART.
Do you see that message?
Customer: Yes I do. Is it completely installed?
CS Rep. : Yes, but remember that you have only the base program.
You need to begin connecting to other HEART's in order to get the upgrades.
Customer: Oops. I have an error message already. What should I do?
CS Rep. : What does the message say?
Customer: It says "ERROR 412 - PROGRAM NOT RUN ON INTERNAL COMPONENTS."
What does that mean?
CS Rep. : Don't worry ma'am, that's a common problem. It means that the LOVE program is set
up to run on external HEARTS but has not yet been run on your HEART. It is one of those
complicated programming things, but in nontechnical terms it means you have to "LOVE" your
own machine before it can "LOVE" others.
Customer: So what should I do?
CS Rep. : Can you pull down the directory called "SELF-ACCEPTANCE"?
Customer: Yes, I have it.
CS Rep. : Excellent. You're getting good at this.
Customer: Thank you.
CS Rep. : You're welcome. Click on the following files and then copy them to the "MYHEART"
directory: FORGIVE-SELF.DOC, REALIZE-WORTH.TXT, and ACKNOWLEDGE-
LIMITATIONS.DOC. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching any faulty
programming. Also, you need to delete VERBOSE-SELF-CRITIC.EXE from all directories, and
then empty your recycle bin afterwards to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.
Customer: Got it. Hey! My HEART is filling up with new files. SMILE.MPG is playing on my
monitor right now and it shows that PEACE.EXE, and CONTENTMENT.COM are copying
themselves all over my HEART. Is this normal?
CS Rep. : Sometimes. For others it takes a while, but eventually everything gets downloaded at
the proper time. So, LOVE is installed and running. You should be able to handle it from here.
One more thing before I go.
CS Rep. : LOVE is freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everybody you meet.
They will in turn share it with other people and they will return some similarly cool modules back to you.
Customer: I will. Thanks for your help. By the way, what's your name?
CS Rep. : You can call me the Divine Cardiologist, also known as The Great Physician, but most
call me God. Most people feel all they need is an annual checkup to stay heart-healthy, but the
manufacturer (Me) suggests a schedule of daily maintenance for maximum efficiency.
Put another way, keep in touch.........

I read that atleast ten times,
it was so simple, yet so powerful
how could i not know it before
we have made our lives so complicated that sometimes simple things are overlooked
at any given point in time there is so much going on in our life and in our minds that we jsut forget to LIVE and ENJOY the NOW and spend greater part of our lives eithe in worries about past or future
ne ways, that one line gave a beautiful metaphor, a wonderful paradigm shift
"When there is more IN SIGHT, you get more INSIGHT"
so simple, yet so powerful
when we start living in the now, observe things closely, sometimes we get amused by the observations we overlooked before, things that we never realised, we never thought of, we only come to know those once we come close in touch with that thing, event or person
i dont wanna ruin the magic of these words by my explanations so just one more time
"When there is more IN SIGHT, you get more INSIGHT"

tying to do this
trying to do that
trying to be good
trying to quit bad habits
one day a wise guy came to me
He said some thing that didnt make sense to me
He said "When you are trying something, you are not doing it"
and then he said
"When you are doing something, you are definately not trying it"
i was confused
He gave me a example of people who always want to quit smoking
and say, I am trying to QUIT
They are just trying, they are not doing it
................i was little more confused now
all my life, i have been trying so many things
and here this guy comes in and tells me dont try, just do it
didnt make any sense to me
I beleive he read my mid
Rizwan, do yourself a favour
What, i asked
He said, Try to breathe for one minute
What does that mean, i asked
He said, just do it for one minute, as i say
Dont breathe, just TRY TO BREATHE
STOP BREATHING RIGHT NOW
and i did
NOW JUST TRY TO BREATHE, REMEMBER YOU DONT HAVE TO BREATHE, JUST TRY TO DO IT
What, i said
how on earth do i try to breathe
i started breathing after around 40 seconds as i could not hold any more
NO NO NO NO
DONT BREATHE, YOU JUST HAVE TO TRY IT
and at that moment he made all the sense in the world
there is no such thing as trying
you just do it
plants dont try to grow, they just do it
earth doesnt try to spin and revolve around sun, it just does it
we dont try to breathe, see or touch
we just do it
so simple yet so powerful
its a metaphor to live with
Dont try, JUST DO IT!

a friend share this with me
A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to
visit their old university lecturer. Conversation soon turned into
complaints about stress in work and life. Offering his guests coffee, the
lecturer went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an
assortment of cups: porcelain, plastic, glass, some plain-looking and some
expensive and exquisite, telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.
When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the lecturer said: 'If
you noticed, all the nice-looking, expensive cups were taken up, leaving
behind the plain and cheap ones.
'While it is but normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that
is the source of your problems and stress'.
What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously
went for the better cups and are eyeing each other's cups.' 'Now, if Life is
coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are
just tools to hold and contain Life, but the quality of Life doesn't
Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in
So don't let the cups drive you...enjoy the coffee instead."

The world outside you is mere reflection of the world inside you, you may choose to change either one of them, but if you choose to change former, nothing will change.
It’s one of the harshest and cruelest facts of our life but again it’s the most innocent truth which always lives by its words no matter what happens, one of the true realities of our life that most of us fail to acknowledge, the world we see is just a reflection of our being.

My mom has a bag ready for my brother to throw away, a garbage bag.
Since we live in an apartment complex, there are few big dumpsters
And no one comes and collects garbage from home,
We have to go and get rid of it ourselves,
Otherwise it will keep piling up,
And no one likes to live with pile of garbage in their home,
That’s why we always make sure that it gets out of our home as soon as possible.
Same is true for our feelings,
But we often fail to do the same there,
We just keep on piling up those negative feelings in our heart over the years
And in the end we ourselves end up in dump of negative feelings right in our own heart,
I don't understand when we can’t even stand the smell of physical garbage for few minutes,
How can we accumulate garbage of negative feelings for years?
You’re smart enough to know what’s good for you,
GET RID OF ALL GARBAGE NOW"

I always remember this story I read in a book when I was young
about a couple who saved their entire life for a dream cruise
and then came a time when they saved enough so they can go for that cruise,
they paid for the 15 day long cruise but realized they didn't have any money left for the food,
so they packed themselves with biscuits, they went to the cruise
Breakfast, lunch and dinner they only had biscuits.
They were really happy, it was a great cruise, lot of fun, but just biscuits,
14 days passed by, last day they realized that they had some money for the grand dinner,
they went to the cafeteria and asked for the menu, it was a great menu,
lots of foods varieties but to their surprise there were no prices on the menu,
when asked the waiter told them that all meals were free
and prices were already included in the cruise ticket………..
and they lived 14 days just on biscuits……aaawwwwwwww, that sure was cruel,
they didn't realize that fact
We have a life time ticket to our life's journey
with all the powers and all the means to enjoy it all included
provided to us right in our own hand
but still we beleive we dont have it
and worry all the time
Isn't it true....
all powers are always yours, so is your lord who creates it....
when you have a life time ticket to all the laughters and happiness of the world,
why do u choose to live on tears
hey come back to life, laughter and happiness
they are waiting for you
it's the language of the soul,
language of nothing,
language of the unlimited,
its when you are able to tap into that gap,
the gap between your thoughts,
absence of thoughts,
it is the realm where
the IS communicates with you,
miracles and coincidences start happening in your life,
all you have to do is to tune in to the right frequency of silence
and allow the IS to make you feel being integral part of the great IS ness
thats where words come from and die back,
music comes from there, goes back there,
without silence there are no words, no music
its the only medium
there is no other way to communicate

If I bounce a ball down to earth,
it's going to come back up,
the thing that it will come up is for sure but how much up,
it would depend on the force I exert on it.
If it's a rubber ball, I may not have to exert much pressure
while a tennis ball would need normal pressure,
other balls may require different kinds of pressure,
but one thing is common amongst all of them is when send down to earth,
they all come back
so are your prayers
they always come back to you
even if you send it for soemone else
they will bless you too
more intense your prayer
much more intensely it will come back to you
be generous with your prayers

GOD loves you for what you are (BE)
and not what for what you do,
since you are a human BEING and not a human DOING.
I know there is a light in you,
that has always been there and that glows your personality and your soul
and one day it will glow the whole world.
At this moment you may or may not realize its presence
but that light is present inside of you, it has ever been, and it will always be,
your simple denial to this fact will never change this fact,
just like your denial of the presence of a soul could never harm the soul and make it leave,
similarly, your denials of presence of that eternal light in you,
will not take that light away from you,
just you it may lengthen the time before you realize its true presence and potential
There are two kinds of creations
one that live on earth
and other that live in the sea
very rare are those who can live in both worlds
those, including you, who live on earth
dont know what it is like to live in the sea
you simply can not do it
there is a force that keeps you out of the sea
same force that keeps other creatures within the sea
same is true for spiritual realm
everyone is not allowed to come in
but once you go in
its so beautiful in there;
you will never want to get out
choice is yours. . .
You are a symbol of love;
there is so much love inside you,
in fact you are made of love,
your may choose to act otherwise,
but deep down inside its all love that resonates all your feelings, thoughts and actions,
you may however choose to bestow your love to few individuals closely related to you
but this love is not for you to keep or grant selectively,
Divine has granted you love so that it can use you as an instrument of love for the whole world
and every thing and every one in it
as it has chosen the sun, and the moon, and water, and sky, and air
they all just give, they dont see who gets
they are not worried that they will be empty if they give it all
since they know their source is unlimited
so is yours
love unconditionally and without selection...
We can not give some thing that we don't have,
how many times in our lives we have heard phrases like
GIVE RESPECT, GIVE LOVE etc.
how can we expect some one, who doesn't even have self respect or love,
to be able to give the same to some one else.
can you expect apple juice from an orange, No it only has orange juice
how can it give apple juice
is'nt it foolish to expect sweetness from chilli and sourness from water melon
so how can you expect love from someone who does'nt have it
or how can you even say that you love someone,
when you hate someone else at the same time
as you can not donate money when you dont have it
similarly, you can never give out something you dont posses
let alone be love, respect or ne other divine quality...
so if you want to give something, first get it in yourself first
so you are able to share it with others
its not that difficult

what if all dreams were meant to come true
what if all the power to make your dreams come true were right there at your footsteps
what if these dreams were designed specially for you
what if the whole universe was waiting to help you out in making your dream come true
what if you knew a small step of yours would be a giant leap for your life
what if you were sure you could not fail
what if all the music was yours, if you would just tune in
what if you had powers to change the realities, yours and every one else's
what if your inner most thoughts were the guidance from the divine
what if you knew you were the best
what if you could have every thing you ever dreamed of
what if all your problems and worries could vanish just with a smile of yours
what if you had a choice to surround your self with peace & love
what if all this universe was made just for you
what if all of the above is true
what if ...
Saturday, November 05, 2005
You have the magic built in you,
but in the physical dimension of the world,
you fail to experience it,
Its just like the music that is present there in you,
you just fail to tune into it
and after a while you don't even know that it exists,
though it is there,
all you have to do is to get to the right frequency
and music will flow out seamlessly,
without any effort,
all you need to do is to tune into that infinite realm of being.
Tap into the unlimited potential
believe that you are free to choose your own path
and in turn creating your own very future,
the way you like it

I was thinking about this guy my friend plans to marry
Do you know him?
I know about him
But do you know him?
I told you I know about him
Yeah I heard that, you know ABOUT him
But do you know him
What’ the difference
Knowing about swimming can never make you swim; you can only swim when you know swimming
What you want to say
Knowing all about mango is never enough unless you taste it your self
But what’s the point
You said you know about him, you have read and heard about him, but you don’t have a clue who he is
Am I not on the right track?
There is nothing right and there is nothing wrong, it’s you who need to be right, who have carved a need to be right for your self
I didn’t get you
All paths lead to the same destination because that’s the only one there is, there is nothing else possible, because all IS there is, there is nothing outside IS, so whatever you do, you are always the part of IS, and when you are part of IS, you can never be wrong, the term wrong never exists in the IS.
All the maps in the world can not give you the experience you get by getting lost in a strange alley
You mean to say experience matters
You need to know IT rather then just be satisfied knowing about IT and it applies to every one, every thing around you
if I tell you all about heavens and true happiness, you can not know what it is like to be eternally happy, unless you experience it your self, knowing about true love is much different then the falling in love and holding the hand of your lover in a winter night. Hmm
It’s your experience that matters and not knowing about it, and that’s what matters
I thought we were talking about that guy I was thinking about
Yeah we are
Rizwan just try to understand, its your thinking that makes things happen, not their appearance, same object can have different meanings for different people, and can create different feelings and behaviors in different beings. If two minds see the same thing they may or may not come to the same conclusion, so if you know about something, it means that you are having someone’s opinion about that thing, chances are that if you experience the same thing yourself, your conclusion may be different
So it’s always better to know something yourself rather then knowing about it from some other source
But it is not always possible to know every thing
The limitations are only in your mind, you believe there are limitations and then you attract and manifest them in your lives, and things seem impossible
You mean to say I can know about every thing and every one
You already do, you just need to realize that you do
I didn’t get you
Remember I told you about the radio frequencies, you have the frequency to tune into the realm of unlimited potentiality, but unless you tune in, you don’t even know it exists, its all inside you,
Rizwan tell me one thing, if I take some air in a jar what do I call it
But it’s just a part of unlimited air available, do I still call it air
Yes, since it is air
What makes you say that it is air and nothing else separate from air?
I don’t know the scientific detail but at least know that the composition of air inside your jar would be same as that outside, so it is the very same air
So if it’s the very same air, it must have the very same capabilities and potentialities as the air outside
See the difference, you know about it, but you don’t know it
But I agree, it would be same air as air outside, when you know this fact, it would be easy for you to understand that there is only one IS, and we all are part of that IS, there is nothing that IS not. You also are a integral part of that IS, and if I take you, stand alone, you also are that IS, you also have the same capabilities and potentiality as IS has, just like the air,
And when I said that I take some air in the jar and contain it, it is not separating air in the jar from the air outside, rather that jar is becoming part of that larger air, where air is outside as well as inside, just like if I put a bottle full of sea water in the sea, I would not mean that the sea inside the bottle is different and separate from the sea outside, rather even a kid would understand that this small bottle is now part of that larger sea,
I never thought like that
You also have the same IS ness in you, you have the same unlimited potential, same power of manifestation that created this whole material world we see and every thing inside it, it is inside you as well as outside you, you are not separate from it, you could never be because there is nothing where IS is not
Thanks for showing me a different direction
Again you are going in the same direction, I told you and now you know about it, you are happy just knowing about it, but the real test is knowing it yourself, experiencing it yourself, feeling being an integral part of it
How do I do that?
What do you do when you wish to feel part of your family?
I just meet them, or talk with them
You do the same for the IS, you be a part of it and communicate with it
How do I communicate?
Thru silence, that’s the language of the soul, language of nothing, language of the unlimited, its when you are able to tap into that gap of silence, the IS communicates with you, miracles and coincidences start happening in your life, all you have to do is to tune in to the right frequency of silence and allow the IS to make you feel being integral part of the great IS ness.
I will try
You don’t try Rizwan, how many times I have to tell you this, you just do it
again the same thing Rizwan, unless you do it yourself, you will just know about it, you will not know it, Go in silence, feel the silence inside you, feel your being, feel the life inside your body, move one part at a time, and feel life in each and every single part of your body, realize that your life is something other then your body, feel your breathing, in and out, feel the flow, go with it,
I do meditate
I am not talking about rituals Rizwan, they sure are important, but to a certain point, they make you religious but not spiritual, and being religious has its limitations, its same as knowing about the ultimate truth, but to know the truth, you will need to experience it yourself, know it yourself, believe it yourself, that would make you spiritual, so to a certain extent its good to be religious, but there is much more to the ultimate then what comes across your eyes
So you are saying I shouldn’t follow my religion and my rituals
I said religion and rituals are important, they get you started, but then you have to choose your own path and experiences to know your true reality of who you really are, unless you experience that yourself, no book or teacher in the whole being can explain you that no matter how hard you or they try
If I start right now, practicing silence and getting on my spiritual journey, how long will that take?
Time does not exist in the infinite, its just a product of this material world, there is no concept of time out of this world, its only one moment, that is NOW, that’s all there is, every thing happens right now, and that’s the only reality, there is no concept of time and space in the infinite
Rizwan, its not something outside you that you have to go and find out, its all within you, and when I say all, I mean each and every thing, to the most tiny details, its all right inside you, all you need to do is to realize your true self and once you realize your self, you will know every thing, since nothing is separate from you, its all one
Yes Rizwan everything, just like in this world, a doctor can tell every thing about you, just be studying a single DNA from your body, a very very small part of your body, similarly, you carry the DNA of this universe, this whole reality, if you understand yourself, that means you understand the whole universe
Rather then thinking that you are in the universe, be sure that the whole existence lies within you, start thinking and feeling outside your body, right now you are having experience of a body in this world, with this experience you know what it is to be in the body, but you didn’t have a body before this experience, you were just a soul, deep down inside you, you know what is being a soul, go deep down inside and realize that knowing, feel it, and be it
I am getting a little lost
Yeah you are little lost, but that does not mean you can’t find your way out, rather then saying that I m lost, start saying that I am searching, searching within, when you feel lost, chances are you will give up, but if you are searching, you would not
Go within, its all there within you, just ask for it, and all answers will be provide, its all inside you, but my telling you all this, you will have to experience it yourself, unless you do it its no good
Rizwan I said this before I am saying this again
I can tell you every thing
But it would not mean any thing unless you go and experience it yourself
Many beings are just happy knowing about it
Or knowing about those who really know it
But very few strive to actually go there and know it themselves, have their own experience, their own journey
Go and experience it yourself
All the very best
And it all disappeared
Rizwan, did you think about your new business partner
I was thinking about this guy, I talked to you about, but I don’t know him
But you know about him, he’s got a good reputation
But I don’t know him
Your clients know him, your friend knows him well too
You are right, they all know him but I don’t, and how can I enter into a partnership with someone I don’t know
You can not know the whole world Rizwan; you will have to rely on others judgments too
But I want to know him personally before I enter into a partnership
You have gone mad; you can never do business
And she slammed the door again
Life itself is a business Rizwan, more experience you have, better you are at it
Nothing can replace your own first hand experience, and I mean it nothing
And it vanished with these words
