I was a just-born and she was Twenty-Five,
Though we were we, we were one.
I would cry out in Latin and she would respond in Greek,
I would learn nothing but she never got tired to teach.
I was surrounded by monsters eager to pull my cheek,
but they would vanish the moment I was wet and weep.
She would come running and hold me in her arms,
as if I had won the contest of the charms.
Now I was able to walk and chew,
and hey, I was two.
I and she could now understand each other,
I was her everything and she needed no other.
I would try to walk and fall down,
But knowing she was with me,
the fear of getting hurt was now gone.
We still could not converse that effectively,
But she would understand my needs so easily.
I could now roam about free,
because now I have turned three.
I was ready to join a new world,
my academic life was now gonna mould.
She would dress me as best as a prince,
but when I would come back,
she would need at least an hour to rinse.
I was now able to talk,
I was a ferry and she was my dock.
I still remember the child, whose shirt I had tore,
Hey buddy, I have turned four.
I now came home a little late,
Nevertheless finding her waiting at the gate.
She would hug me and carry me in her arms,
it felt like flying through the farms.
We now did the homework together,
I would spoil the home and she used to work.
Years passed and now I was fifteen,
and with each year I would forget to lean.
I wouldn't care for what she said,
because now I had become mean.
She would ask me to study for a good future,
but I was busy in a different culture.
Now I had many shes in my life,
I dreamed of having one of them as my wife.
I changed a lot which she did not teach,
She would try to hug me but I was out of reach.
She still waited for me at the gate,
but I would look at her with utmost hate.
She would be awake till late in the night,
because I wasn't home, I was in a fight.
She had so much to scold, but she never did say,
hoping to find me better the next day.
Time went on and now I am grown,
lost in the world of my own.
I and she, between us have a river,
I have left her for my career.
When I was young, for me, she sacrificed her ambitions,
but I don't care, I now have my own mission.
I am not with her now, I am in a different city,
she is so old now but I don't even pity.
She needs me now but I am nowhere to find,
in the race for appraisal, I have become blind.
In a few years from now, I will be two,
there will be in my life someone new.
Then I'll forget even to bother,
I am her son and she is my Mother.
Go, someone is still waiting for you

- Correct others by your example, and never by nagging criticism. If you make suggestions, keep them positive. Negativity only invites more negativity.
- When presenting an idea, clarify it with examples. The less abstract your presentation, the better it will be understood, and the more readily accepted.
- Be more encouraging of others, and less critical. By too much criticism you’ll stifle their creativity and paralyze your own.
- Offer suggestions to help others, and not simply as a purgative for your own negative emotions .Above all, never undermine a person’s faith in himself.
- There will never be another today. Make the most of it.

1.Meet your challenges vigorously. To muse lengthily on past victories is to deprive yourself
of the energy you need for winning new ones.
2.Overcome worry by living bravely rightnow.
3. Think of times as a radiation outward from your own center. past and future are a circle rotating around a never changing present.

Be equal-minded in fortune and misfortune, in happiness and sorrow, loss and gain. The ups and downs of life have lessons to teach us. In fact, without reverses in our life, we will not be able to experience Divinity. Without darkness, we cannot appreciate light. Without experiencing difficulties, we will not value the pleasures we enjoy. It is lack of peace of mind which compels us to seek the means to realize everlasting peace. The Upanishads have declared that through renunciation alone can immortality be attained. Man should learn to practice renunciation so as to discover the secret of enduring peace and bliss.
the joy of the Lord is my strength (clap, clap)
the joy of the Lord is my strength (clap, clap)
the joy of the Lord is my strength (clap, clap)
the joy of the Lord is my strength (clap, clap, clap)
Mankind has progressed much in exploiting the material resources of the earth in order to promote the standard of life. But, he has not learnt the way to inner peace and contentment. Envy and greed have fouled the relations between persons and nations, suppressing the awareness of the Unity that underlies all Creation. The main cause of this calamitous situation is rank egoism; each one tries to grab for himself whatever adds to his power and comfort. The mind has desires as its warp and woof. When desires are ego-oriented, time and effort are wasted; duty is neglected; the body and its skills are misused. In order to restore peace to the individual and in society, the mind has to be purged of its attachment to the self.

All are children of God. He is the sole Lord of mankind. People may seem to differ in their names and forms and in their beliefs and practices. But the source is the One alone. Recognition of this basic truth of oneness is Brahmajnana (Knowledge of the Absolute). This knowledge cannot be gained by merely studying the scriptures and holding metaphysical discussions. What has to be recognised is the truth that every being in the universe is an embodiment of the Supreme. Awareness of the unity that subsumes the diversity is the highest knowledge.
We are all one. Just color and race are the factors of disparities in the society. We must change our blind beliefs. Try to build a new society.
Of what use are wealth and position if one has no peace of mind? A quiet conscience is man's most precious possession. To achieve inner peace, desires have to be subdued and all thoughts should be centred on God. Engage yourselves in service activities in a spirit of dedication. True service consists in helping the poor and the forlorn in the society with humility and dedication. This is service to the Divine. Practise the saying - "Dil me Ram, Hath me Kaam." (Serve with your hands having installed God in the heart). Do not hanker after power and pelf.

The best way to get rid of weakness is to strike it at its very root - the mistaken belief that you are the body, that you have a name and a form, these senses, this intelligence and this mind. These are all the luggage you carry. Don't you say, "my mind", "my hand", just as you say, "my book", "my umbrella"? Who is this 'I' that calls all these "mine"? That is the real 'you'. It was there when you were born, when you were sleeping forgetful of all else, forgetful even of your body with all its equipment, internal and external. That 'I' cannot be harmed; it does not change, it knows no death or birth. Learn the discipline that makes you aware of this truth and you will be ever free and bold. That is real Vidya (knowledge), the Atma Vidya (knowledge of the Self).

People complain of grief, sorrow and distress. These are but reactions to the loss of something that one already possesses, or the failure to gain something that is desired. Therefore, the only way to escape sorrow is to conquer the desire for the illusory. See the world as God. That vision will scotch desire. When one's desire is focused on God, success is assured and every step contributes to the achievement of Divine Bliss.

Like the wind that covers everything with dust, desires and attachments cloud the mind. They have to be kept away so that the splendour of the self might merge in the splendour of the Higher self, the Paramatman (God). The process of purifying the consciousness of man in the crucible of single-pointed thought, speech, feeling and activity directed towards God, will rid him of all blemishes and defects. When the inner consciousness has been rendered pure and unsullied, God will reside therein. Then man will experience the vision of God within him.

The mouse is the vehicle of Lord Vinayaka. What is the inner significance of the mouse? The mouse is attracted by smell and is considered as the embodiment of the sense of smell. The mouse is a symbol of attachment to 'Vasana', which means both smell and worldly tendencies. It is well known that if you want to catch a mouse, you place a strong
-smelling bait inside the mouse-trap. The mouse also symbolises the darkness of night. The mouse can see well in the dark and moves about freely in the night. As Vinayaka's vehicle, the mouse signifies an object that leads man from darkness to light. Thus, the Vinayaka-principle signifies that which removes bad thoughts, bad habits and inculcates
good thoughts and good conduct in people.
11 September 2008
world, who has no trace of egoism and who is ever immersed in the bliss of God consciousness, is always untouched
by any tinge of sorrow. He is firmly established in supreme joy and peace.
All are God. You too are God, above and beyond the past, present and future. You are not the body which is tied up with time and which is caught in the coils of was, is and will be. Be ever fixed in the attitude that you are of the nature of Parabrahman (God); dwell constantly in this thought. Thus you can become a Jnani (person of wisdom).

- Put bright color in your surroundings, and you’ll bring more brightness and color to your own life.
- Be as considerate of the feelings of others as you would have them be of your own.
- Be Modest, but don’t belittle yourself. The center of your being is the center of the universe as far as your own understanding is considered. At the center, awaiting your discovery, lies all the power of infinity.
- Be Courageous in your decision making . “What if?” and “ what if not?” keep people sitting forever on a fence. Even a poor decision may be preferable to making no decision at all: At least it will keep the energy flowing, a flow which may, in time, attract good decisions.
Let others Live
- As the gardener water the flowers, so water the hearts of others.
- Offer hope to those who are losing hope. Help them to see that their potentials reach out to infinity.
- Offer encouragement, whenever you find sorrow or despair. No defeat is permanent; Often, it is the precursor to stunning victory.
- Offer happiness, whenever you see gloom. Pity is demeaning, but happiness, offered without imposing it, can be a lifeboat on a stormy sea.
- Dharma (righteousness) is the foundation for the welfare of humanity, it is the eternal truth. When the effulgence of Dharma fails to illumine human relationships, mankind will become enveloped in the darkness of sorrow. Man must dedicate himself to Dharma so that he may live in peace and the world may also enjoy peace. He cannot acquire lasting peace nor can he win the grace of God through any means other than by leading a Dharmic life.-BABA

@ Remain always even- minded and cheerful. To Rise and fall with the waves of emotion is to sacrifice mental clarity for confusion.
@ View your problems dispassionately, as if from a mountain peak. Perspective is lost in the narrow valley of personal involvement.
@Rise above your likes and dislikes, but don't withhold sympathy from others. Too many people reverse these priorities: They soar loftily above the likes and dislikes of others, but are tenderly sympathetic where their own interests are involved.
@Non- Attachment is not indiffernece. Be deeply concerned with finding soloutions to people's problems.
@ Walk tall, Physically and also mentally. Keep your spine straight, and your thinking straightforward. Wisdom is spherical, but the path to victory is linear.

*> Communicate with others thoughtfully, never absentmindedly. Do things that are uplifting; don't merely pass the time.
For time is an inheritance: However little or much has been allotted to you, spend it wisely, or it will be frittered away.
*> Be silent at your center. Excessive speech is anesthetizing. Instead of thinking up ideas to communicate to others, think up ideas to communicate to your own higher self.
*> Accommodate your ideas to the good suggestions of others. What does the source of an idea really matter? The more closely the idea approaches to the truth, the less credit anyone ought to claim for it. For where we human beings intrude on the process, usually , is in our mistakes.

Location : North India Adventur Agra
Trip : 16 days Trip
3 days Camel riding
4 days cycle touring
8 nights hotels
* Combining camel riding through Rajasthan and cycling village roads to AGRA.
There is no better way to appreciate the diversity of life in village india than by cycling and camel riding. we combine this with visits to the famous palaces and forts of delhi, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Jaipur and Agra on our journey through rajasthan.
From Delhi we take an over night train to bikaner on the edge of the rajasthan desert. Our camel ride takes us through rarely - visited villages and forts that reflect their rich culture and history. Our caravan includes a full complement of musicians and crew to ensure each over night camp is a memorable one. After 3 days in the saddle we reach the walled city of jaisalmaer before continue via jodhpur and the imposing meheran fort to the ' pink city' of Jaipur.
In Jaipur we visit the city palace, the palace of the winds and the jantar mahal , and ride atop elephants to the amber fort before commencing our cycle ride to Agra and the tajmahal . As we cycle the country roads we re-adjust our pace to that of the buffalo cart and meet the village elders who are keen to discover the purpose of our journey.
If you haven't riden a camel before be assured no prior experience is necessary. If you haven't cycled since your school days, dont worry. The roads are flat, the days not unduly streneous and we provide a backup vehicle for your convienience.

The Whole world today is suffering from disorder and violence because people have lost Aathma-Vishvaasa (Faith in the Self). They are fostering attachment to the body and ignoring the spirit. This is incorrect. Whatever you do, deem it as God's work. This can be applied to every ordinary act in daily life, whether it is sweeping the floor, cooking or cutting vegetables. Every one of these acts can be turned into a spiritual exercise by the spirit in which you do it. Install the Divine in your hearts and carry on your duties with devotion and dedication.
Devotion to God is not to be calculated on the basis of the institutions one has started or helped, the temples one has built or renovated, the donations one has given away, nor does it depend on the number of times one has written the Name of the Lord or on the time and energy one has spent in the worship of the Lord. These are not vital at all, no, not even secondary. Devotion is Divine Love, unsullied by any tinge of desire for the benefit that flows from it, or the fruit or consequence of that love. It is love that knows no particular reason for its manifestation. It is of the nature of the love of the soul for the Oversoul; the river for the sea; the creeper for the tree, the star for the sky, the spring for the cliff down which it flows. It is sweet, in bad times as well as good. It is an unchanging attitude, a desirable bent of the mind, standing steady through joy and grief.
Devotion is no sign of weakness; it is a sign of courage, of wisdom, of discrimination; it alone can give soukhyam and shaanthi (happiness and peace). Every one has one day or other to fall in line with you, for every one is terribly anxious to get these two. They try, in their ignorance or excitement, various other remedies, but this remedy alone can cure them.
Make four resolutions about your life hereafter:
(1) Purity: Desist from wicked thoughts, bad habits, low activities that weaken your self-respect.
(2) Service: Serve others, for they are the reflections of the same entity of which you are yourself another reflection. No one of you has any authenticity, except with reference to the One Original.
(3) Mutuality: Feel always kinship with all creation. See the same current flowing through all the objects in the Universe.
(4) Truth: Do not deceive yourself or others, by distorting your experience.
01 August 2008
1) If in doubt - ask a question.
Don't be afraid to question things. Don't be afraid to offer a question even though other people in your peer group have not
2) Place experience over authority.
If one reflects upon what the authority figure is conveying to you, does it pan out with your real life experience? For
example, if someone tells you that all red heads are moody - have you experienced this in your life?
3) Understand People.
Does the person communicating with you have an agenda that might be influencing what they are telling you? What is
motivating this person? Why do you think they think this way?
4) Don't feel you have to follow the crowd.
Remember the old adage - if Johnny put his hand in the fire does that mean you have to do that too?
5) Trust your feelings.
Trusting your "gut instinct" about something is often an over looked trait. If something does not feel right to you there is
probably something wrong (or at least something seriously flawed) with what you are being told.
6) Remain calm.
Remaining calm and collected will help you remain objective and help you to think clearly. If you get caught up in a heated
debated and loose your cool, your capacity for rational thinking is diminished.
7) Gather the facts.
Like any good thinker would do - gather all the facts before making a judgment. Ask yourself do you have all the facts? Are
there gaps in your knowledge that is keeping me from the truth or from the solution to a problem?
8) Look at Things from Different Perspectives.
If you are trying to solve a problem - try coming at it in a different way. If one way hasn’t worked for you - try a different
one! Try and see ideas or concepts from different perspectives. For example, would someone growing up in Japan think the
same way about a subject as someone from Ireland?
9) Cultivate Empathy.
It is easier to understand why people think the way they do if you understand their situation. If I said "All red heads are
moody and I don't want anything to do with them!" - there could be a reason for me to be saying this. Maybe I was bullied by
a red head in school for example. Empathizing with people helps you understand that you may have a different opinion
about something but that’s OK!
10) Be Brave.
It takes courage to stand up and say “I don't agree with you." Be kind to yourself, be patient and don't give up. If you want
to learn how to think more independently -it does take time.
Oh and before I go - don't forget to question everything I have just told you. :)

Sadhana (spiritual discipline) determines the character of a person and character in turn determines one's destiny. Character is cultivated by performing good actions. Actions are based on one's thoughts and intentions. Whenever any thought arises in the mind, one should examine whether it is right or wrong, whether it will benefit society or cause harm. Actions should be based on such enquiry. It is wrong to blame anyone for our misfortunes. Our thoughts and actions alone are responsible for our plight. If one entertains pure thoughts and does all actions with firm faith in God, one will be favoured with God's Grace.

Nothing quells the appetite like water, lots and lots of water. Start out with two quart bottles in the morning and carry one with you to work or wherever you go. If you like, divvy up the 64 ounces of water into eight (8-ounce) bottles or four pint (16-ounce) bottles to carry around with you all day. Freeze half of them the night before and they will last all day, even in a hot car. Keep some unfrozen so they will be ready to drink immediately.
Yes. You will have to make more frequent bathroom trips, but it is worth it. Drink your 64 ounces of water before dinner, if possible, so you're not up half the night going to the bathroom.
Water not only fills you up and lessens your appetite, it prevents those "hungry horrors" we all encounter when our blood sugar drops and we reach for cookies, candy, ice cream, fries or other high-calorie treats. Water also flushes out the system, rids the body of bloat and toxins and rosies up the complexion. Now, start splashing.

Man does not become fully human until he progresses on the spiritual path. Body, mind and spirit - these three together constitute the man. An animal is concerned primarily with looking after its bodily needs. Man is a superior being, since he has been bestowed with a mind. Cultivation of the spirit will elevate him to the Divine. The body, mind and spirit are intertwined and interdependent. Mind and body have to subserve the spirit in achieving awareness of the Divine Atma.

1. Set times & plan your day
Not many people are going to work well without some structure. Waking up in the morning
without any sense of direction for what needs to be done, or what you’re going to do that day is
a recipe for disaster.
Start scheduling or setting daily milestones. If you don’t work best on a “hour based plan’”such
as writing a guest article from 1PM to 2PM, set milestones for the day—one guest blog post,
two blog posts on my personal site, complete client design, etc.
2. Keep an organized to-do list
When you’re juggling half a dozen projects at once, you’re just asking for trouble by keeping a
to-do list in your head. Don’t you want to be able to sit down in the evening and have a few
worry-free hours from your workload? If you’re not keeping a to-do list somewhere other than in
your head, you’ll be heading straight for burnout.
The solution is simple. Buy a moleskin notebook or pop open TextEdit on your computer, then
spurt out all the tasks and actions you need to achieve. Don’t worry about the order, just pump
out everything that needs doing. Once these are on paper, focus on organizing them. It’ll feel
much better having a visual action list you can look at to see what needs to be done.
3. Set goals & milestones
In addition to your newly developed to-do list, start setting goals and milestones. For instance, if
you have a blog, a goal might be publishing 5 entries per week for four weeks straight, while a
milestone might be hitting 2,000 readers via your RSS feed.
Goals are very important, not enough people set them. I for one have set goals to keep me
focused, to keep me looking straight and ahead, and they are perfect to use as motivation for
something to work toward.
4. Disconnect yourself from the outside world
This falls under focusing on a single task. When you’re writing, the last thing you need is to be
distracted by Twitter messages, or emails. It disrupts your overall flow and makes starting your
piece again hard to do. On occasion, one simple email can ruin hours of your work day.
You don’t have to close your email program, practice ignoring notifications. If you hear the new
email sound ignore it, keep working, and keep in the flow.
5. Focus on a single task
Multi-tasking can be fun, and can be rewarding. You think you’re getting a lot done at once,killing two birds with one stone when all you’re really doing is dragging out both tasks longer.
Spend some time on a single task or project and focus. Don’t try to write an article while also
dealing with marketing related emails. Keep them separate. When you’re doing, one ignore the
other—allowing you to work more quickly and efficiently in the long run.

The Divine is the basis for everything. Man, however, is filled with conceit that he is the one who is doing everything. This pride is the cause of his ruin.
It is the cause of his frustration and disappointment. Man today is basing his life on reliance on Nature and is hence forgetting God.
This is a grievous mistake. You must place your faith in God, the Creator of the universe, and then enjoy what Nature provides. Faith in God is the primary requisite for man

One may say, "I am striving to control the mind but it runs about like a mad dog. How am I to succeed?" Therein lies a mistake. The mind is intangible, but, it is attached to the senses. Hence, control the senses; let them not draw you into the objective world. By this means, the mind can be made an instrument of illumination and not of delusion. The truth will then dawn that this Atma (individual soul) is Brahman (God). The splendour of this awareness will drive away the darkness of ignorance, for, the Atma (Self) is jyothi (light) and there can be no Thamas (darkness of ignorance) where there is light.

" Great minds discuss ideas;
mediocre minds discuss events;
small minds discuss people."
"Nothing is more dangerous than an idea--
if it's the only one you have."
" Good ideas dont keep;
you must do something with them--
" An idea isn't worth much unless
a person has the energy and the ability
to make it work"
With every breath you take, think that you are inhaling energy. Practice this exercise: Bend forward and exhale, then slowly raise your upper body, inhaling. Finally, stretch your hands high above the head.
Feel the energy slowly fill your body from your toes to the very tips of your fingers.
Develop the dynamic faith. It isn't enough memory to believe in a Higher Power, Passively. Offer yourself with all the trust that is in you, that you be allowed to serve as an instrument of that power.

Show your appreciation to others for what they are, and for what they do. The secret of attracting abundance in life is gratitude.

Why, in spite of astounding technological progress, can we not solve our long-standing, basic problems? Why is the world tormented with war, crime, violence and misery? Why are so many marriages, families and other relationships-and ultimately even whole societies-breaking down? Why can't the best and brightest find solutions?
What other magazines don't tell you is why these events and trends take place, nor where they are leading us. It's a paradox that in this information age, a time characterized by an explosion of knowledge, data and communication, we are still so lacking in understanding of what it all means. We ache for answers to questions we can't quite put into words.
To bridge the gap in understanding, we seek out the source of information so many ignore-the Bible. Most writers, editors and publishers completely disregard this source of true, lasting knowledge. Although they can report what's happening -the who, what, when, where and how-they cannot explain why.
It's one thing to report the news. It's quite a different matter to dissect and explain world trends and events in light of the Bible and its many prophecies. The Good News fills that crucial gap in understanding.
The Good News is a magazine of understanding only because our primary source is a book of understanding. We encourage you to study its pages, and the pages of The Good News, to gain the insight so sadly lacking in our world.
