building your house

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of his plans to leave the house-building business to live a more leisurely life with his wife and enjoy his extended family. He would miss the paycheck each week, but he wanted to retire. They could get by.

The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go & asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor. The carpenter said yes, but over time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career.

When the carpenter finished his work, his employer came to inspect the house. Then he handed the front-door key to the carpenter and said, "This is your house... my gift to you."

The carpenter was shocked!

What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently.

So it is with us. We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building. Then, with a shock, we realize we have to live in the house we have built. If we could do it over, we would do it much differently.

But, you cannot go back. You are the carpenter, and every day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall. Someone once said, "Life is a do-it-yourself project." Your attitude, and the choices you make today, help build the "house" you will live in tomorrow. Therefore, Build wisely

words from a man of no words

Once you have heard a truth it is impossible to forget it . That is one of the qualities of the truth that you don’t need to remember it. The lie has to be remembered continuously; you may forget it. The person habituated to lies needs a better memory than the person who is habituated to truth, because a true person has no need of memory; if you only say the truth there is no need to remember.

Respect life, revere life. There is nothing more holy than life, nothing more diving than life.

When mind knows, we call it knowledge

When heart knows, we call it love

 And when being knows, we call it meditation.

Since the time that . . . I stepped into this ruined house of love the Lord of eternity gave me this treasure of  . . . pain of love

 

My chest , in the pain of sweet-heart was burnt of the fire of my heart  it was a big fire in and so vast that it burnt all over this house

Tragedy , sadness , loneliness and despair taught me that life is really a beautiful thing ; if it was not I would not be able to recognize that anything was wrong.

                                                                                                       

Things turn out best for those who make the best of the way things turn out.

                                                                                                         

 

Worrying does not reduce yesterday ‘s sorrows but it empties today ‘s strength

 .

If you are going to get anywhere in life you have to read a lot of books.

A mirror in front of another                    days gone one by the other

How far this repetition goes                    I don’t know but just God knows

How do I get out of it                              shouldn’t I then shout on it

Could scream help me at                         this, but what after that?

Is this really my black fate                      or hope there is I should wait

Sand and Stone

A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand: "TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE."

They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one, who had been slapped, got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After the friend recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone: "TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE."

The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, "After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?"

The other friend replied: "When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it."

The English Language

Have you ever wondered why foreigners have trouble with the English Language?

Let's face it
English is a stupid language.
There is no egg in the eggplant
No ham in the hamburger
And neither pine nor apple in the pineapple.
English muffins were not invented in England
French fries were not invented in France.

We sometimes take English for granted
But if we examine its paradoxes we find that
Quicksand takes you down slowly
Boxing rings are square
And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

"A son and his father were walking on the mountains.
Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
Curious, he yells: "Who are you?"
He receives the answer: "Who are you?"
And then he screams to the mountain: "I admire you!"
The voice answers: "I admire you!"
Angered at the response, he screams: "Coward!"
He receives the answer: "Coward!"
He looks to his father and asks: "What's going on?"
The father smiles and says: "My son, pay attention."
Again the man screams: "You are a champion!"
The voice answers: "You are a champion!"
The boy is surprised, but does not understand.
Then the father explains: "People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.
It gives you back everything you say or do.
Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart.
If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.
This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life;
Life will give you back everything you have given to it."

YOUR LIFE IS NOT A COINCIDENCE. IT'S A REFLECTION OF YOU!"

frightened of Evil, sticking to your love
though in the cage, still, as bird as a dove

tried breaking the cage, need some more power
even among hard rocks, can grow a flower

even if there's no chance for me to fly away
if I can see the sky, I'd have a hope to stay

nothing makes me hopeless, nothing makes me sad
so long as there's the sun, it won't force me mad

looking forward a day that I'm a rescued man
it makes me more eager, to fight until i can

you know why I told you about a rescued man
for if you don't rescue, how can I really can

my life is in your hands, that's why I feel so soft
you can play with it, my soul will then aloft

it doesn't matter if you even tease my heart
do whatever you want, but don't, please, depart

I'd better keep this life, or I'll lose your love
and if I lose your love, whom I can be sure of
