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. . . .

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 .

eternal beauty

Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.

But

you are eternity

and

you are the mirror.

Can you see your own image without mirror?

Even I cannot see my own image without mirror,

so

thing which is truth for you is truth for me also.

I am the creator of nature .

Nature is my image .

Nature is the cosmic world .

I always exist , nature creates and destroys itself .

I am you , nature is your body .

I want to be happy to see my clean image of creation

for that I give everything a mirror inside

and

the possibility for every one of you to keep this mirror clean

and

when mirror is clean ,

I am with you .

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

which

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

but

we are aware of a timeless happiness

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

taken out

from

the pocket of  NOW……

Happiness

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.

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…
