A man came to a Master and asked,” How is it that you are always full of bliss? How can I become like you? Please tell me, master.”
“Wait for sometime. When everyone is gone, I will answer your question. It is a secret.” replied the master.
People were coming and going all day. The waiting man was getting exasperated. But, he did want to learn the secret. The sun went down in the west. Most people had gone. The man waited till the attendant, too, left. Now, the master was alone. The man insisted on knowing the secret.

It’s impossible to disregard the existence of our mother, but how unfortunate the humanity is today to neglect the mother of everyone’s mother “Mother Earth”. We are so deeply indulged to show patriotism about our country or religion. but leaving something more important for humanity that is offcourse the nature. Today on the Earth day we can put upbour efforts to contribute to nature. Lets take a pledge to conserve our natural resources, environment, nature and hence our earth for our own survival. It may be any country where we live but we owe a rent to be paid to nature. Being very busy throughout the year lets dedicate a day to honour the love, care, gift have got to exploit. Save nature for our successors, so that they can really visualise the beauty of our planet. Otherwise it may be history like jurassic park. Do small acts to save…

At a restaurant, a cockroach suddenly flew from somewhere and sat on a lady.
She started screaming out of fear.
With a panic stricken face and trembling voice,she started jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the cockroach.
Her reaction was contagious, as everyone in her group also got panicky.
The lady finally managed to push the cockroach away but …it landed on another lady in the group.
Now, it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue the drama.
The waiter rushed forward to their rescue.
In the relay of throwing, the cockroach next fell upon the waiter.
The waiter stood firm, composed himself and observed the behavior of the cockroach on his shirt.
When he was confident enough, he grabbed it with his fingers and threw it out of the restaurant.
Sipping my coffee and watching the amusement, the antenna of my mind picked up a few thoughts and started wondering, was the cockroach
responsible for their histrionic behavior?
If so, then why was the waiter not disturbed?
He handled it near to perfection, without any chaos.
It is not the cockroach, but the inability of the ladies to handle the disturbance caused by the cockroach that disturbed the ladies.
I realized that, it is not the shouting of my father or my boss or my wife that disturbs me, but it’s my inability to handle the disturbances caused by their shouting that disturbs me.
It’s not the traffic jams on the road that disturbs me, but my inability to handle the disturbance caused by the traffic jam that disturbs me.
More than the problem, it’s my reaction to the problem that creates chaos in my life.
Lessons learnt from the story:
I understood, I should not react in life.
I should always respond.
The women reacted, whereas the waiter responded.
Reactions are always instinctive whereas responses are always well thought of.
A beautiful way to
Person who is HAPPY is not because Everything is RIGHT in his Life..
He is HAPPY because his Attitude towards Everything in his Life is Right….!!
