Advantage Anger…


A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared everything and kept no secrets from each other, except that the woman had a shoe box at the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about. For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover. In trying to sort out their affairs, the man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife’s beside. She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in it. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000. He asked her about the contents. “When we were to be married, ” she said, “my grandmother told me that the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that If I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.” The man was moved to hear this. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him twice in all those years of living. He almost burst with happiness. “Honey, ” he said, “What about all this money? Where did it come from?” “Thats the money I made it from selling the dolls”, she said.


Weather The Storm

One day a girl was driveing with her father. They came upon a storm, and she asked her father, “What should I do?” He said “keep driving”. Cars began to pull over to the side, the storm was getting worse. “What should I do?” the girl asked. “Keep driving, ” her father replied. Ahead she noticed that 18-wheelers were also pulling over. She told her dad, “I must pull over, I can barely see ahead. Others are doing that.” Her father said, “Don’t give up, just keep driving!” Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon sche could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on dry land, and the sun came out. Her father said, “Now you can pull over and get out.” She asked, “But why now?” He said “When you get out, look back at all the people that gave up and are still in the storm; because you never gave up, your storm is over.”

God Checks my Patience…


9 Jan 2011, Sunday,

As soon as I woke up in the morning, I put on my face, sat for vipassana. As long as I continued the meditation the huge loud music went on the very mornig. Well, today, Sunday. Nobody banged any morning before like this. I felt quit absurd but continued. Thought that may God check my patience and didnt hold my breath but did what I was supposed to do.

What happened the next was I went for breakfast. The canteen was filled with few number of students, I sit for there, waited for moments, paratha was being prepared. I noticed, people started to gather more and more. Right there, the first lot came, parathas finished in no time. Well, I waited for some more moments, felt normal and expected for the next lot. Ya, this time it took more minutes. Suddenly, the worker came with huge amount of parathas. One of the worker put parathas into plates and distrbuted among us but except me, lot took no time to finish again. Ah, I wondered with jelousy and guilt and murmered myself, what is that?. I totally felt impatient. Couldn’t stop myself, words started to come from within – hey, dont’ you see this little shit sitting here and waiting since long time? Or am I invisible that one put plates infront of the guyz beside me and not of me? Blah… blah… Bahadur bhaiya became the victim. After few minutes, the third lot arrived. Bahadur bhaiya himself put two parathas for me. As soon as I tore the paratha for my first bite, I felt something inside myself. Now, what I realised was the shame inside me. Ah of me, questioned myself, Why, why?

The greed, cruelty, guilt, jelousy had vanished now. Why did these came for a moment and made me wholely impatient. They remained inside me for just 2-3 minutes. I was totally impure. Oh me, shameless. Was this because I was expecting for something or my valuable time I was wasting for nothing? May because I was jelous with the other guys or people don’t care me. I was filled with egos and selfishness. Yes, because I was silent and covered my face with the hood of my pullover and nobody did recognise me.

Ha ha ha ha… I remembered GOD. So this is you who is taking my test time to time. Well, I failed it. No worry. Sure, I promise you, I will pass it one day. I will pass it one day…. I swear, my heart and soul will be compltetly pure that day.

Let all beings be happy, Let all beings be liberated.
