Think About It .

“It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are


what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy.

It is what you think about it.”

Dale Carnegie,

Walk in the Central park at Jaipur ( Rajasthan ) India with my wife is a Divine prayer . For me walk is a meditation …….. a journey of silence and serinity

Life also is a play of light of knowlege and wisdom , delight with friends and family , flight with all and to alone , fight within and without but happiness is a constant factor in ups and down of journey ……. think about it or ask Buddha ?.

Love all.

I Drops


Why one writes, may be to remember a moment or to be remembered in moments.

Yesterday my wife asked me to bring EYE DROPS from the chemist, so asked for the reason, she replied for better vision.

EYE and I are pronounced in the similar way, so just thought………

EYE DROPS for clear vision outside,

I DROPS for clear vision inside.

Perfume of essentials


Happiness is part and parcel of human life , 


we search it outside in objective world 


to research it inside into subjective world.

objective world is warehouse of desires


subjective world is awareness of essentials of human life .

Love , peace , kindness, gratitude and beauty are essentials to life , 

happiness is perfume of essentials.

enjoy wasting time

The expression appeared in the book “Phrynette Married” by Marthe Troly-Curtin.

This novel was part of a series by Troly-Curtin that began with “Phrynette” in 1911.

An advertisement in Lippincott’s Monthly Magazine grandly proclaimed that “Phrynette”


“The Most Talked-About Book in London Today” in July 1911.


The Three Last Wishes of Alexander the Great

. With death staring him in his face, Alexander realized how his conquests,his great army, his sharp sword and all his wealth were of no consequence. He called his generals and said, “I will depart from this world soon, I have three wishes, please carry them out without fail.”With tears flowing down their cheeks, the generals agreed to abide by their king’s last wishes.

1) “My first desire is that”, said Alexander, “My physicians alone must” carry my coffin.” so people  realize that best doctors on this earth can not save them from death.

2) After a pause, he continued, “Secondly, I desire that when my coffin is being carried to the grave, the path leading to the graveyard be strewn with gold, silver and precious stones which I have collected in my treasury”. with this Let people realize that it is a sheer waste of time to chase wealth and greed of power 

3) The king felt exhausted after saying this. He took a minute’s rest and continued. “My third and last wish is that both my hands be kept dangling out of my coffin”.so I wish people to know that I came empty-handed into this world and empty-handed I go out of this world”.

“O king, we assure you that all your wishes will be fulfilled. 

With these words, the king closed his eyes.Soon he let death conquer him and breathed his last. . . .


: ram0ram footnotes :

till we search our values in other’s eyes we remain poor …..

even after climbing the ladders of success . prestige , power and wealth ……

the day we become valuable in our own eyes …….

we have the wealth ……

for one thing like to call Alexander …… the great …..

not because he conquered many nations ….. or was a great king ……


for the truth he could speak that going empty-handed ……

Love is our inner wealth, seed of which we all bring in our closed hands…..

to plant in this world to make it a tree of happiness……

not making it a tree of happiness is empty-handed departing from this world .


 love this quote ……

Not  twice  this  day,  

 Inch  time  foot  gem ,

                                   This  day  will  not  come  again,                                  

Each minute is worth a priceless gem. 

Zen master ” TAKUN ”

 ( Lord Vishnu (cosmic consciousness) floating on water in dream state ) 

diamonds and all wealth will remain here only …..

thing we will carry with us is invaluable happiness earned for every breath of life ….  

In India Gold and pure sleep has one name only ……

IN Indian Language it is SONA or सोना ….

wisdom is to have pure sleep where we meet divine everyday ……  

meeting divine in every work and walk of life is no  wastage of time


a stage of awareness .

Happiness = rarest thing

“Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.” 

Ernest Hemingway

 Ernest Hemingway

What is intelligence?

Intelligence is defined as general cognitive problem-solving skills. A mental ability involved in reasoning, perceiving relationships and analogies, calculating, learning quickly… etc. Earlier it was believed that there was one underlying general factor at the intelligence base (the g-factor),

General intelligence, also known as g factor, refers to the existence of a general intelligence that influences performance on mental ability measures.

The existence of general intelligence was first described by Charles Spearman in 1904. According to Spearman, this g factor was responsible for overall performance on mental ability tests and can be measured and expressed by a single number, such as an IQ score.

Other definitions are:

“Intelligence is what you do when you don’t know what to do.”

“Intelligence is a hypothetical idea which we have defined as being reflected by certain types of behavior.”

ram0ram footnote

Intelligence is outer reflection of oneself  into myself .

Happiness is inner reflection of oneself into yourself.

Intelligence is one’s value in other’s eyes

Happiness is one’s value in own eyes .

When If Meets Must

When If Meets Must

If we can fight together, we must strive together

If we can play together, we must pray together 

If we can plan together, we must stand together 

If we can cry together, we must try together 

We must strive together, if we can fight together 

We must pray together, if we can play together 

We must stand together, if we can plan together 

We must try together, if we can cry together 

The future of man is built on a plan 

Of working together whenever we can

So “if” must stand so tall 

And “must” alone, cannot fall 

For together, forever we bring 

The best, the good of it all.

currency note of life …..happiness

Good and God’s morning ……

this morning bringing milk by paying Indian currency notes

thought with these what we buy in time is our needs and wants


may bring us a joy in time which with the passage of time fades


we are aware of a timeless happiness

which we can buy with the currency note of life ……

taken out


the pocket of  NOW……


by Raymond Carver

So early it’s still almost dark out.
I’m near the window with coffee,
and the usual early morning stuff
that passes for thought.

When I see the boy and his friend
walking up the road
to deliver the newspaper.

They wear caps and sweaters,
and one boy has a bag over his shoulder.
They are so happy
they aren’t saying anything, these boys.

I think if they could, they would take
each other’s arm.
It’s early in the morning,
and they are doing this thing together.

They come on, slowly.
The sky is taking on light,
though the moon still hangs pale over the water.

Such beauty that for a minute
death and ambition, even love,
doesn’t enter into this.

Happiness. It comes on
unexpectedly. And goes beyond, really,
any early morning talk about it.

eat time wisely

My grand daughter 7 years always bring some kind of a intelligent quiz so this morning her quiz to me was ……… it is a table but not of wood or iron but it is flexible and folding ? …..

After lot of thinking as I could not answer so looked towards her for my silent defeat which is the main cause of asking her these quiz so she proudly explained ……. time table

so I asked what is the use of time table …… so with smile she replied …… to eat time wisely ….

Many time I share the wisdom of this eating time wisely ……. off course there are hundreds of time management techniques and methods but a wisdom should be such which a child as well as a educated young and old could understand with minimum effort …..

science of social conversations is to create short , sweet and simple methods so a human can fulfill health , family , work ,and social obligations and to perform them in limited time one needs to make priorities and list them as per their importance ….so to understand this importance I suggest them with four steps ….

1. Air ……. as we can not live without it for more than a minute or two so select from the list of works of this nature and number them as URGENT or U1 , U2 , U3 , U4 , and so on …..

2. Water ….. as we cannot live without water for more than few hours so select from the list of works of this nature and number them as IMPORTANT or I1 , I2 , I3 , I4 , and so on …..

3. Food ….. as we cannot live without food for more than a day so select from the list of works of this nature and number them as GENERAL or G1 , G2 , G3 , G4 , and so on …..

4. Chocolate …… as we can live without chocolate for more than a week or month so select from the list of works of this nature and number them as MISCELLANEOUS or M1 , M2 , M3 , M4 , and so on …..

so to list them as per nature and must try to complete them all in a balanced manner will give us a blissful and healthy meal of time …… knowing to work on the right task as right time will give us a life of peace love and happiness ……

and not completing the work in order from urgent to miscellaneous will make miscellaneous and general works climbing the ladder of urgent ….making life stressful , lack of quality time ……for self , family and society.

this is my own personal way of life with which I walked from New Delhi to New York with ease and always had abundance of time for myself , family , and work and society and sports and music ….. and with same ease now a days write with happiness all my different pages ….on different subjects ….

love all.

art of happiness

“Each one   has  happiness in own  hands,

as the artist handles the rude clay and seeks to reshape it into a figure;

yet it is the same with this art of happiness as with all others:

only the capacity for it is innate;

the art itself must be learned and painstakingly practiced.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

glow of happiness

Grace the world with your glow of happiness

Do not chase happiness 
Search within you 
There are lot many things 
Inside you 
Which have reasons 
To make you happy 
You pursuit or search for happiness outside 

Does not take you anywhere 
As what seemingly has a stock of happiness 
Once you reach or achieve it
You realize that happiness 
Lies further ahead somewhere
And you hunt for happiness 
Takes a new turn 

And this goes on and on 
Only to make you understand 
That you are back in square one
Devoid of happiness, your original search 
Happiness, thus, cannot be anywhere else 
But within you 

Do not be on a stealthy stalk for happiness 
Simply because others do so 
Search within and discover 
The happiness in you 

Do not be on a race for happiness 
But grace the world 
With the glow of 
Happiness within you

happiness ….. the cup of love

“People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness.

Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.

“H.Jackson Browne 

Good and God’s morning ……  

this morning while walking on the circular pathway of Garden ……. normally traffic in India moves on left hand side so there are many who are behind on my side and before my side so we walk clockwise but there are many who walk anti clockwise so cross them two times in one complete circle …….

so wondering when one walk alone there is no rules …. but the moment two comes …… there comes a silent understanding of a smooth flow …. means both follow the left hand drive but both cross each other …..

so true freedom means give a path to others without any obstructions …. without hurting each other …..

in garden …… everyone who comes there comes for happiness and health …… some walk ….some exercise …. some enchant ….some sing …..some clap ….. all like the different flowers of the garden of life and all sing like different birds of the divine ….

there is a saying of in the holy books of Hinduism and must be in all religions …… which are meeting in one place as earth has become a global village ……. so this saying is ….

Hari Anant Hari Katha Ananta, Kahi sunahi bahu vidhi sab Santa!

it ‘s meaning in English is …… God is infinite so are the tales so there are infinite ways to tell and listen ……

my mother used to tell God is DAYALU which means kind but ALU means potato also so she will tell ……God is like a kind Potato …….. and it is everyone’s freedom to cook in own way ….. mix spices according to own taste ……so let we all be happy in the kitchen of divine …..

learning to making good herbal and spice Indian tea from my wife ….

she is not only wife but a complete life ……

happiness in my view is like a plate which holds cup of life ….. to drink tea of love 

love all…

the true path

Zen Stories

The True Path

Just before Ninakawa passed away the Zen master Ikkyu visited him. “Shall I lead you on?” Ikkyu asked.

Ninakawa replied: “I came here alone and I go alone. What help could you be to me?”

Ikkyu answered: “If you think you really come and go, that is your delusion. Let me show you the path on which there is no coming and going.”

With his words, Ikkyu had revealed the path so clearly that Ninakawa smiled and passed away.

Beyond the Rainbow

Thursday …….. my date to update …….. ram0ram wisdom notes …. 

 …… sharing great Chinese wisdom in the series Tao Te Jing 

….and this small Zen story ….. A Cup of Tea

Nan-in, a Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868-1912), received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen.

Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor’s cup full, and then kept on pouring.

The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. “It is overfull. No more will go in!”

“Like this cup,” Nan-in said, “you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?”

ram0ram footnote ….. EGO = E GO = energy go so be a EAR =E AR = energy arrive = so talk is ego ….so wisdom is to listen 80 % and talk 20% but both with love ….

I swear

I swear, since seeing Your face,
the whole world is fraud and fantasy
The garden is bewildered as to what is leaf
or blossom. The distracted birds
can’t distinguish the birdseed from the snare.A house of love with no limits,
a presence more beautiful than venus or the moon,
a beauty whose image fills the mirror of the heart.

happiness ….. my teacher

“I will accept God’s Love for me today.”Let’s pay attention to the happy people in our lives. 

What do they have in common? 

The only difference between them and us is that they choose to see the light in their lives instead of wallowing in darkness. They align with their strengths and laugh at their weaknesses.

They count their blessings instead of their miseries. 
They want to see the good in others instead of their mistakes. They choose the power of Love over the limitation of fear. 

Life isn’t complicated. We just make it that way. 

God’s Love and our recognition and acceptance of God’s Love are all we need to live a perfect life.

Are you one of the happy people? Then I thank you for being my teacher.

love all.


fragrance of a rose

The disciples were absorbed in a discussion of Lao-tzu’s dictum:“Those who know, do not say;
Those who say, do not know.”

When the master entered,
they asked him what the words meant ?

Said the master, “Which of you knows the fragrance of a rose?”

All of them indicated that they knew.

Then he said, “Put it into words.”

All of them were …… silent.

O Love, You who have been called by a thousand names,
You who know how to pour the wine

You who are faceless but have a thousand faces,

#FridayFantasy . . . I am still every age that I have been



“I am still every age that I have been.
Because I was once a child, I am always a child.
Because I was once a searching adolescent, given to moods and ecstasies, these are still part of me, and always will be…
This does not mean that I ought to be
trapped or enclosed in any of these ages…
the delayed adolescent, the childish adult, but that they are in me
to be drawn on; to forget is a form of suicide…
Far too many people misunderstand what
*putting away childish things* means, and think
that forgetting what it is like to think and feel and touch and
smell and taste and see and hear like a three-year-old or a
thirteen-year-old or a twenty-three-year-old
means being grownup. When I’m with these people I, like the kids, feel that if this is what it means to be a grown-up,

WHY  O YOU is a question mark ……. a mark which could not be erased from the mind since human appeared on earth , and wondering and wandering in the desert of  answers .

All answers satisfy your thirst for some time but quest satisfying answer still appears as mirage . and this quest on purpose of this life has given the birth to individual journey which is spirituality and a collective journey what we know as modern science.

Merging of two visions of both the eyes bring a third dimension of depth so we will have to merge the spirituality and science together for a right answer .

what could be that ?

need your input ……. thanks and regards
