Alexander-the-great

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 ……

but

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

but

a stage of awareness .

love all

  1. I hope you know how much wealth and inspiration your posts bring me – I know I say it all the time but I am often so moved by the things you share…they always help me slow down a little. 🙂 With gratitude, Amanda

    • dear and divine ……. life is a race which we all run between milestones birth and death ….. and race brings fears of win and defeat but if we add G before race it will become Grace …. G stands for goodness …… G stands for gratitude ……. G stands for greetings ……G stand for glow …… G also of gears what In India we call Chakra ….. a wise driver has to use gears according to conditions on road ….. 000001 and 100000 … zero is God …… put God before oneself we remain with our original face …… putting God behind our value increases in other’s eyes …… in a race ….. gears are for car but a neutral gear is for driver which is our soul ……. so remain neutral or witness race of life in slow or fast speed …… that makes race with grace …….. you are truly divine make me witness new insights ….. thanks ….. love all.
