Before we go old: Worry about nothing, pray about everything!!!


1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay ‘them’

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge

8. Cherish your health. If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Worry about nothing, pray about everything!!!

A Milk Tooth

A guy seated on the windowsill, foot dangling right outside the window of the room. A mug of coffee lied beside him; without a blink of eyes he was staring at the sea; perhaps he was moping about unrequited love. A knock on the door broke his silence. He turned back and eyes met with his 14 years old son, smiled surged through their faces. After getting consideration from his father’s eyes he stepped forward and reached near him. Boy’s one hand resting on the window pan other scratching the wall-pant, father noticed uneasiness of his son and picked him up with his arms and settled him down on his lap. Now both were staring the sea with nothing between them and the sea, perhaps it would appear so close that they could reach out and touch it. They watched a bunch of kids at the other end of the sea trying to hit each other with a tennis ball, shouting cheerfully. As elderly man under a tree cautiously exercised, stretching his arms. Two women, combing gossip and evening walk, strolled the periphery.

“Son, I have been noticing you for the last couple of days that you r not behaving in right way. Neither eating food nor getting sleep properly. Is there anything is running in your mind which is disturbing you? Feel free talk to your dad” Father said, his furrowed eyes clearly showed that how much he was worried for his son.

His son swirled his neck gazed in his father’s eyes and stared back the sea. He didn’t want to talk as he was totally, engulfed in his thought. His father pushed the conversation and said, “You know son when I was in your age I had also faced so many problems and kept quit like you, reason was no one beside me with whom I talk freely” picked up the coffee mug and guzzled some coffee from it and put it back where it was earlier.

After a minute Son broke his silence and spoke, “Dad, her name is Gauri. She is in my class. I started to like her the very first day she appears in school. I fall in love with her when I shook hand with her first time. Her touch created magic in me. I felt different whenever she was around me. When I went to tell her about what I feel in her presence, she broke the news that she is leaving the city just because his father got transferred” the droplet of water in the corner of his eyes clearly mentioned that how much he was feeling sad.

With cracking sound son said it again, “Why is she leaving me dad?”

DAD was looking outside silently. Embarrassed, he dismissed the conversation. After a while he caressed his son’s shoulders with both his hands and planted a kiss on the back of his head. He turned him around and looked straight in his eyes and hugged him tightly, patted his back without saying a word. A silence filled the room. He moved forward to bed and settled him down on it “wait I’m coming”, said and leaving him behind with watery eyes and left the room.

When he came back he noticed tears were rolling down from his son’s eyes leaving his collar wet. He sat beside his Son and showed closed hand to his Son and asked him, “Son, do you know what is in it”. The boy cleared his eyes with both his hand and nodded his neck as disapproval. He opened his hand slowly and asked him again, “Hope now you would able to tell me what is it”. This time confidence lit his eyes and he recognized what it is and then pronounced loudly” Hey dad, it’s my tooth, which fell down few months ago, my milk-tooth”.

“Yes” father smiled. “Now, listen son, when it fall it hurts you badly, filled your mouth with blood that time, you couldn’t able to stop your tongue to reach that corner again and again. N times in a day you went to take a look in the mirror that missing place had been started to fill with new one or not and when you found nothing you felt sad” Father took a pause and looked at his son to confirm that he would able to grasp all the words that he was telling. After receiving a satisfactory look from his son he spoke again, “And I remembered how much you were happy when you came to me and broke the news of new-tooth had finally rose in your mouth”.

With perplexed expression Son looked at his father and said “Yes, Dad I remembered but why are telling me all these things”

Father smiled and said, “First love is like a milk-tooth. When it broke it hurt badly, bleeds badly, disturb you badly. You can’t stop yourself to think over it again and again. But remember, this pain is momentary. One day it will be filled by True love and mesmerized your soul and Let you be only with memorizes of first love. But for that you have to wait. Hope for the best.”

After a moment, smile took charge on son’s lips and he replied, “I LOVE U DAD.”

Father smiled, took him in his arms and hugged him affectionately and then picked him up and went downstairs as dinner was ready and both of them feeling very hungry.

Riding the storm of life

We do not have to go to the foot of the Himalayas to attain inner peace. We also do not need to renounce everything before attaining quietude. Instead, we can live day to day in inner quietude. If we look at all of life’s experiences and their disturbing content with inner eyes, the disturbances we undergo will remain at the periphery. Deep down there will be an emotional quiet. Inner peace is all about coping. If the unpleasant and painful memories remain too long with us, we will not make the transition that we are called to make from restless non-acceptance to quiet acceptance.

We are in a win-win situation when we accept the challenge of living, discriminating how far we should go along a certain track, who we should relate to in more intimate terms and those we need to distance because their values are so disparate from our own. If we are self-sacrificing and wise, we will remain calm and tranquil despite the provocations we face. We do not avoid difficult people and circumstances, but learn to deal with them by distancing ourselves from them and building on relationships that bring happiness.

Withdrawal is an option but it would lead to disengagement and non-involvement and that does not bring required results. The inner peace we crave for comes after traversing a long passage learning with experience, we begin to take things in our stride. It’s not all that easy, though. There are many ways to cultivate and build on inner peace. We could set some time aside daily for prayer and meditation. Disproportionate understanding can blow up the way we perceive things. We could spend quiet time in the garden, in silent communication with plants and trees.

We endure life’s storms and learn to absorb its shocks and we find that we are, in fact, in the midst of all these circumstances, communing with God, a tangible presence in our lives. Coping is not just reactive, it’s proactive, too. We pick up the mantle thrown to us and practice patience, detachment, endurance, serenity and acceptance of all that comes our way. To overcome obstacles and difficulties we need to develop coping skills that encompass emotional, mental and spiritual needs. The only difference between the wise and the foolish is that the wise learn to cope with reality and transform it and the foolish get swept away by the ups and downs of life.

Life is uncertain; it is unpredictable. It is also unfair, it seems. But in learning to cope with all the ups and down of life, we begin to live a full life. There is the parable of the wise man in the gospels who built his house on rock. It withstood all the rains and storms. On the other hand, the man who built his house on sand watched his house get destroyed in the rain and storm. Hence, we need to cultivate rock-like resilience and welcome attributes that will help us to cope. The reward of inner strength is inner peace.
