Happiness

Beautiful message explaining how Happiness is a State of Mind.

A man of 92 years, short, very well-presented, who takes great care in his appearance, is moving into an old people’s home today.   After waiting several hours in the retirement home lobby, he gently smiles as he is told that his room is ready.  His wife of 80 has recently died, and he is obliged to leave his home.

As he slowly walks to the elevator, using his cane, I describe his small room to him, including the sheet hung at the window which serves as a curtain. “I like it very much”, he says, with the enthusiasm of an 8 year old boy who has just been given a new puppy.

” You haven’t even seen the room yet, hang on a moment, we are almost there. “” That has nothing to do with it “, he replies. ” It is already decided in my mind that I like my room. It is a decision I take every morning when I wake up. ”

” Happiness is something I choose in advance. Whether or not I like the room does not depend on the furniture, or the decor rather it depends on how I decide to see it. “”I can choose. I can spend my day in bed enumerating all the difficulties that I have with the parts of my body that no longer work very well, or I can get up and give thanks to heaven for those parts that are still in working order. “

“Every day is a gift, and as long as I can open my eyes, I will focus on the new day, and all the happy memories that I have built up during my life. “”Old age is like a bank account. You withdraw in later life what you have deposited along the way. “So, my advice to you is to deposit all the happiness you can in your bank account of memories. Thank you for your part in filling my account with happy memories, which I am still continuing to fill.

Remember these simple guidelines for happiness.

1. Free your heart from hate.
2. Free your mind from worry.
3. Live simple.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.

If you have been blessed by this message, send it to your loved ones and your friends. It is the way we touch each other with simple truths that spread goodness in the world. Who knows, a miracle may happen as a result.

Have a Blessed Day. Every day is a Bonus.

*Superb Story*

A little boy went to his old grandpa and asked, “What’s the value of life?”  The grandpa gave him one stone and said, “Find out the value of this stone, but don’t sell it.”  The boy took the stone to an Orange Seller and asked him what its cost would be.  The Orange Seller saw the shiny stone and said, “You can take 12 oranges and give me the stone.”  The boy apologized and said that the grandpa has asked him not to sell it.

He went ahead and found a vegetable seller.
“What could be the value of this stone?” he asked the vegetable seller.  The seller saw the shiny stone and said, “Take one sack of potatoes and give me the stone.” The boy again apologized and said he can’t sell it.

Further ahead, he went into a jewellery shop and asked the value of the stone.  The jeweler saw the stone under a lens and said, “I’ll give you 1 million for this stone.” When the boy shook his head, the jeweler said, “Alright, alright, take 2 24karat gold necklaces, but give me the stone.” The boy explained that he can’t sell the stone.

Further ahead, the boy saw a precious stone’s shop and asked the seller the value of this stone.  When the precious stone’s seller saw the big ruby, he lay down a red cloth and put the ruby on it.  Then he walked in circles around the ruby and bent down and touched his head in front of the ruby. “From where did you bring this priceless ruby from?” he asked.

“Even if I sell the whole world, and my life, I won’t  be able to purchase this priceless stone.”
Stunned and confused, the boy returned to the grandpa and told him what had happened.  “Now tell me what is the value of life, grandpa?”  Grandpa said,

“The answers you got from the Orange Seller, the Vegetable Seller, the Jeweler & the Precious Stone’s Seller explain the value of our life…

You may be a precious stone, even priceless, but, people will value you based on their intellectual status, their level of information, their belief in you, their motive behind entertaining you, their ambition, their risk taking ability & ultimately their calibre.

So don’t fear, you will surely find someone who will discern your true value.”
*Respect yourself.* *Don’t sell yourself cheap.*
*You are rare, Unique, Original and the only one of ur kind.* *Your are a masterpiece because u r MASTER’S PIECE.*
*No one can Replace you.*

The Fable of Porcupine 

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm.
.
This way they covered & protected themselves;
but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.  After a while, they decided to distance themselves one from the other & they began to die, alone & frozen. So they had to make a choice..
.
Either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth. Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the warmth & heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.
.
The best group is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others & can admire the other person’s good qualities. Better to be surrounded by warm pricks than be frozen in solitude!!!!!!

What a nice story…

An American man walked into a restaurant in London. As soon as he entered, he  noticed an Indian sitting in the corner.
So he walked over to the counter, removed his wallet and shouted, “Waiter! I am buying food for everyone in this restaurant, except that Indian guy over there!”
So the waiter collected the money from the man and began serving free food to everyone in the restaurant, except the Indian. 
However,instead  of becoming upset, the Indian simply looked up at the American and
shouted, “Thank you!” That infuriated the man. So once again, the American took out his wallet and shouted, “Waiter! This time I am buying bottles of wine and additional food for everyone in this bar, except for that Indian  sitting in the corner over there!” So the waiter collected the money from the man and began serving free food and wine to
everyone in the bar except Indian. 
When the waiter finished serving the food and drinks, once again, instead of becoming angry, the Indian simply smiled at the American man and shouted, “Thank you!”
That made the American man furious. So he leaned over on the counter and said to the
waiter, “What is wrong with that Indian man? I have bought food and drinks for everyone in this bar except him, but instead of becoming angry, he just sits there and smiles at me and shouts ‘Thank you.’ Is he
mad???”
The waiter smiled at the American and said, “No, he is not mad. He is the owner of this
restaurant.
May your enemies work unknowingly in your favour.

Stay away from Anger..It hurts ..Only You!
 If you are right then there is no need to get angry,
 And if you are wrong then you don’t have any right to get angry.
 Patience with family is love,
 Patience with others is respect.
 Patience with self is confidence and Patience with GOD is faith.
 Never Think Hard about the  PAST, It brings Tears…
 Don’t think more about the FUTURE, It brings Fear…
 Live this Moment with a Smile,It brings Cheer.
Every test in our life makes us bitter or better,
 Every problem comes to make us or break us,
 The choice is ours whether we become victims or victorious.
 Beautiful things are not always good but good things are always beautiful
 Do you know why God created gaps between fingers?
 So that someone who is special to you comes and fills those gaps by holding your hand forever.
 Happiness keeps You Sweet..But being sweet brings happiness.

Nice story

One day all the employees reached the office and saw a big advice written on the door.  Yesterday the person who has been stopping your growth in the company passed away. You are invited to join the funeral.

In the beginning they got sad for the death of one of their colleagues but after a while they got curious to know who was the man stopped their growth.

One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin and when they looked inside they were speechless.  They stood shocked in silence as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul. There was a mirror inside the coffin and everyone who looked inside could see him/herself

There was a sign next to the mirror that read

There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth. It is you  you are the only person who can influence your happiness  success and realization.

Your life does not change when your boss friend or company changes………….. your life changes when you change…. You go beyond your limiting beliefs and you realize you are the only one responsible for your life. It’s the way you face life that makes the difference.

If an egg is broken from outside force………life ends  but it is broken from inside force life begins. Great things always begin from our inside.

Short story ……………………. nice moral

a548

A person asked a question to his guru. “ My workers are not true to me. My children my wife and the entire world is very selfish. Nobody is correct’. Guru smiled and told a story.

In one small village there was a room with 1000 mirrors. One small girl used to go inside and play. Seeing thousands of children around her she was joyful.

She would clap her hands and all the 1000 children would clap back at her. She considered this place as the world’s happiest and beautiful place and would visit often.download

This same place was once visited by a sad and a depressed person. He saw around him thousands of angry men staring at him. He got scared and raised his hands to hit them.  And in return thousand hands lifted to hit him back. He thought this is the worst place in the world and left that place.

This world is also a room with 1000 mirrors around you………… what we let out of us is what the society will give back to us.

This world is a heaven…….it’s up to us what we make out of it…………said the guru.

 

positive thinking 

saints

A woman saw three saints in front of her house. She did not know any of them.  She said “ kindly come inside and have food’ . The saints replied  “ is your husband inside the house’? woman said ‘ no he has gone out”  Saints said will step into the house only when he is there” wealth

In the evening when the woman’s husband returns home she tells him about the saints.  Husband asked her “ go and tell them I am home and invite them inside the house” . She went out and called the saints inside the house.  The saints now said  “ we all don’t go inside anyone’s house together.”  “ But why “? The woman asked them.  One of the saints said “ my name is wealth.  Then he pointed to the other saints and said these two saints names are prosperity and love.2011-prosperity1

Only one of us can come inside your house.  You go in discuss with your family and decide which saint you want to invite. The woman went inside and told her husband all about this.  He was excited.  He said  “ if this is the matter let us invite wealth. Our house will them be filled with happiness.  But wife said I feel we should invite prosperity.  Their daughter was in the next room. She was listening to the discussions. She came outside and said  “ I feel we should invite love   nothing is more important.’

You are right. We should invite love only her parents agreed.   The woman went out and asked the saints  “ who is love ?  please come inside the house.  The other two saints started following love.  The surprised woman asked the saints ‘ I only invited love.  Why are you two also coming inside the house?”  love-209900_960_720

One of the saints replied  “ if you had invited prosperity or wealth only that saint would have entered your house.  But you have invited love.  Love never walks alone.  Wherever there’s love there’s prosperity and wealth. They all go hand in hand.  Read this story once twice  thrice  if you like it stay with love. Spread love give love and take love.  As love is the only secret to success.
