Wonderful advice

This is the most beautiful advice I have ever received in an email .... Please don't close or delete this one before reading!

An Angel says, 'Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice..'

1. Pray2. Go to bed on time.3. Get up on time so you can start the day un rushed.4. Say No to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.



5. Delegate tasks to capable others.6. Simplify and unclutter your life.7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.



9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things all together.10. Take one day at a time.11. Separate worries from concerns . If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety . If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it..12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases.



13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble. 15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.



16. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.17. Get enough rest18. Eat right.19 Get organized so everything has its place.

25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good 'Thank you Jesus .'27. Laugh.28. Laugh some more!29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).



31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).32. Sit on your ego33 Talk less; listen more.34. Slow down.35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.36 Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before. GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU.

A Beginner's Mind

Each experience brings you greater knowledge about yourself and the world. This allows you to move forward quickly through many situations and creates a base of experience with which you view the world. You do not, for example, have to re-learn how to start a car each time you get behind the wheel. This process works well for you in the material world but it hinders you in the spiritual. The material world teaches you that everything is the same; the spiritual world challenges you to see everything as unique. The Shift requires that you have a beginner's mind, where you anticipate nothing and are prepared to learn everything.
Everything that you have learned and know up to this point is valid and has created the person you are today. All of your past experience is beneficial in dealing with the material world. But you are all preparing to bring heaven on earth, to blend the material with the spiritual in a new way that creates a different kind of world in which what you learned on the material level will not always work. Now you must see the world as a beginner would, knowing that nothing is as it appears and everything is possible.
Having a beginner's mind challenges you to look at your reality in new ways. You will examine your beliefs about what you think is possible for you, for your life and for the world. While you may know that things unfolded a certain way before, they will no longer do so. How would you feel if you looked at the sky and it was green? You know that the sky is blue, but is it really blue or does it look blue because you believe that is the color it should be? With a beginner's mind, becomes there is no preconceived belief about how it has been or should be. Then everything and anything becomes possible.
Having a beginner's mind erases the doubts and pain of the past. When you start each day as a beginner the past never happened and only the present exists. What a wonderful gift this is for you as you release every reason that caused you to doubt your worth, your power and your abilities. Your beginner's mind will allow a world of limitless possibilities to unfold for you. Each day becomes a true new beginning where everything is possible. This week, look at every aspect of your reality with a beginner's mind, as if you were seeing it for the first time. Feel the joy and the excitement that you did when you first experienced each situation. Focus on the miracles you want to create in your life and remember that with a beginner's mind, everything is possible.

Memories

A thousand words won't bring you back I know because I tried.
Athousand tears won't bring you back I know because I cried.
You left behind a broken heart and happy memories too,
But i never wanted memories i only wanted you.

Life is like a flowing stream of water

Life is like a flowing stream of water, in the beginning it does. t have the knowledge as if when it has to go?Will the journey ahead be straight or full of oppositions..will it be misdirecting or it will make it stop or the direction it travels..will it lead to the path of completeness?? The stream never knows anything.What will happen next? It has no worries or any plans for the future in front of him. But his mind lives in the present.
Whoever comes in front..dealing pleasantly with it, singing the same sweet songm, it deals with a mild smile everytime. It never stops anywhere. It quenches thirst of everyone. It fullfills /blisses everyones ‘anjuli’i to its fullest but it never looses itselves in all this. It’s his nature to continously keep on flowing. In every moment/condition singing and be joly is its nature and motto ‘sadhan’.Wherever there is oppostions, rocks, there the stream blossoms and opens up. Like a child keeps on moving ahead.Even a small turn be there, it turns without any fear in its mind.It salutes everylover who loves it by fullfilling them to their fullest and goes ahead. Nobody is [aple kivva parke] for him.
Life if lived, a way is always there for every condition. How does that stream manages to move ahead? Because it never crushes on to anyone. It contains no harshness/hardness, ego or any pride[‘garva’] .Softness[‘mardav’] and [‘adrata’] helps it. It never looses these properties. It even converts a black stone to the divine [shaligram] but..doesn’t even tries to break it. It turns/converts one power into another power and goes ahead only. It does the ‘prahar’ but of softness [‘ adratecha’] and love.. It reduces the sharpness of the rock but its not its motive. It just wants to move ahead. Continous journey is its aim.
Has anyone seen a stream in any ‘paritap’?? Has anyone eard in his mind where it has to go? Those who are great never ever think about the end of the journey and they make their travel a lot happier and joyful. Don’t they know that bliss is what they are going to have in the end? But they enjoy that bliss or its fraction in the present too. The beginning itself is going to be the end and bliss achieved in the end.. wby not enjoy it now? The whole existence only is going to be surrendered then why misery while walking th e way long? Fool are the people who are miser..Actually, what is going to get over after disturbing, shoud be thought and distributed but giving gives us back more..and distributing increases what we get then why misery while giving? Happiness and love increases by giving and this is the only giving in life. This is worth learning from stream. Donating whatever he owns and even after this organising using every single drop of water it speeds up its movement with grace and jollyness. The power that we possess should be used wisely and not be wasted. The one who use their power wisely only move ahead in their life.Not even a slight percent of the power should be used for ill thoughts or desires and the same works as a fuel. Understanding people are the one who use what they have with them and use it in their life as fuel.
That small, tiny stream constantly flows, without getting stuck anywhere, only if it maintains constant speed then only it reaches the ocean. It doesn’t have any map layout of its journey, just the wish to flow and its bliss alone take him to the ocean. If a human walks with a definate aim but gets stcuk in the worries of the map and is afraid of the turns of life and according to the conditions, goes wrong in decision making, then it wont be possible to make it till the end.
Even the journey of life also does not always walk on the desired path. On every step the map keeps changing. The road is ofter missed and we often commit mistake and we often forget but like the stream in every condition it makes its way with the feelings of surrenderness and if so today or tomorrow or day after tomorrow, someday we sure gonna reach that destination /aim even if we don’t want to reach..
And reaching the destination is not the end. Sometimes,

Think out of the Box

Think Outside The Box! Have you heard about the frog that was born at the bottom of a well? He thought life couldn't get any better till one day he looked up and saw daylight. Climbing up to investigate he was amazed to find a much larger pond than the one he lived in. And going further afield he discovered a lake that was bigger again. When eventually he came to the ocean and all he could see was water, it dawned on him just how limited his thinking had been. He thought everything he needed was down in the well, but that was a drop in the bucket compared to the things that were out there for him to enjoy.

Maybe you're living today in your own little "well," reluctant to leave your comfort zone, settling for a limited and safe existence while God has rivers "deep enough to swim in." Wouldn't you like to step out in faith, experience new depths in Him and go where you've never been before? Remember, the enemy will do everything he can to keep you focused on your background, your lack of formal education, your appearance and your limited resources. But Bruce Wilkinson says, "It doesn't matter whether you're short of money, people, energy, or time. What God invites you to do will always be greater than the resources you start with." You don't have to let fear limit your vision when God is your source, because His supply is unlimited! One idea from Him, just one, can change your life and the lives of others. He's got great things in store for you today - so start thinking outside the box!
