    so all prbs
    me: wait let me understand what you wrote here
    Pride: ok ok
    8:55 AM reply me i may sleep but will see ur mesg
    8:57 AM me: ok
    8:58 AM first sorry… I have discouraaged you and hurt u a lot than any other…
    9:01 AM and I know you will have only friends in your life
    36 minutes
    9:37 AM me: whatever you want in life put it down in a paper or a book and filter out whats the foremost that you should have. and keep only that one thing in mind. ‘job and money’ cant be the foremost. You have a job, focus on it ; find out ways to reach your goals. In life whatever a man wants will be just in front of him. Its only that it takes time for him to realise and see it just before him. Wants n wishes doesnt come just like that. Only when that thing is around us and very nearer to us we get tempted to wish for that and want it at all costs. And the TIME it takes is only because of the thoughts which disturb you. It’s true that u can’t stop thoughts but you have the power ignore them. Just when you start ignoring those useless thoughts, ur mind becomes channelised and the will power becomes stronger and the time to quench ur goals thereby decreases in no time. So write it clear and in simple words ‘What you want in Life’ then ‘What you want just today’. Make yourself busy with that Today’s task and accept only positive thoughts that push you forward in that Today’s task. So Job n Money can only be your month long or year long or life long goal but not today’s goal. Now u have a job and earning too, even if not in bulks. See if I earn 100 my budget will be within that 100. For any other reason my earning decreases to 50, I think only of living with that 50. And yes I do agree there are people who cant bend down and always think of spending beyond their earnings. But realisation comes to every person if not now somewhere in future when they have to repent for all that. Why not we bend down now, accept what we have and prepare better future. You have many concerns, but you cannot deal with them all at a time. Your primary concerns now are ‘accommodation’ and ‘sending money’. Just prioritise them and act on the important thing first.
    37 minutes
    10:15 AM me: Send Money and Accommodate Yourself Well. 10ppl, drinking n messing may dampen you privacy. But check whats important. Never give gap in sending money even if the amount decreases. And see that you are comefortable whereever you are. Never complain, if u have to, write it in your book or diary feel relieved for the compliant is delivered and accepted…. Never decline support to yourself for whatever decision you may take, right or wrong but be confident. Start laughing at all the problems you have. Then they go weeping that you have not welcomed them. Enjoy watching your problem as an outsider. Many say that they can solve others problems but not theirs. So why cant we become outsiders and find solution to those problems. We all do have idols and role models. Think once if the same problem is given to that idol or role model, how he will be tackling it… then u will find the solution there. Be flexible in your thoughts , ideas and goals. That makes your life simple and zooms into success. I wish you take it on wisely and transform your life as the most enjoyable part. Wishes for your new ventures in life… Keep mailing…

    Know what you want, and have the courage to do it. 

    Some people say that life never gave them square deals but when a chance is offered to them, they start vacillating, saying it was not what they wanted, and it would not work out anyway to their advantage. Their doubts scared them of the future, because they had not the courage to grab the opportunity, and by fearing to attempt they never did anything big.

    Life likes the people who challenge it. In life we have got to take risks when they come. People who dare do it, get a great deal farther than people who are very easily frightened ever to take a chance.

    Age is no barrier between you and any new effort. A great many of the most famous people in the world, began life fairly late. Your age in years does not count. Your mental age counts. There is no reason to put up with being an old fashioned fellow, or to tolerate sitting in a back-water complaining that life has been stingy in its favors to you, or that you are too old to do anything worthwhile. Get up and get on with life.

    Wake up and realize so far you have allowed apprehension to tease you too long. This is the time to ignore it and take the risk.

    Risk is frightening. Men are scared of poverty, of illness, and particularly of public opinion. To be afraid of public opinion is the most contemptible excuse of all. If one stopped to think of that, not one of us would get anywhere. Defy the gossips. Never let fear and doubt spoil your life. Take the chances you are offered and give them the courage they demand. You will get more by daring them than by slipping away into what you think are the safe, comfortable shadows.

    Know what you want, and have the courage to do it. Challenge and take risks!

    • “The release of atom power has changed everything except our way of thinking…the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind. If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker.”

    • “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”
    • “A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeeded be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.”
    • “The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge.”
    • “Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”
    • “You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat.”
    • “One had to cram all this stuff into one’s mind for the examinations, whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect on me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year.”
    • “…one of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one’s own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.”
    • “He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.”
    • “A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
    • “Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.” (Sign hanging in Einstein’s office at Princeton)

    One thing at a time & that done well is a very good rule as many can tell. 

    When you take up any work, apply your whole heart, full mind and soul, to the work. Do it with perfect concentration. What another can do in six hrs, you can turn out within half an hour, smoothly, in a methodical and orderly manner.  This requires high end practice. You will be taken for an accomplished practitioner. Even when you study, study the subject with perfect concentration. Do not allow the mind to wander. You must shut out all external disturbances. Fix the gaze on one point. Do not allow the eyes to wander. When you study a subject , do not think of coffee or sweets.The whole world should be dead to you for the time being.

    Such must be the nature of concentration. It will come to you after some steady and constant endeavours. Be not troubled. Be not discouraged.There will be some delay. Wait cooly and patiently. Rome was not built in a day. It is all a question of time.

    Do not leave the practice even for a day even when you are sick.In you failure lies the secret of your success. and in your weakness, the secret of your strength.

    Plod on , Push on. Gird up your lions. Nil desperandum. Be bold. March on courageously.  Be cheerful. A brilliant future is awaiting you. Practice, and get rejoice. Become a world figure. You can make yourself one. Follow your chosen path. Be sincere and earnest. Rise Up.

    Awake, the light is abundant, only you have to reach there.

    Ever imagined if ‘PAIN’ could benefit us? 

    PAIN is a symptom of a disease. PAIN is a blessing in disguise. PAIN is an eye-opener. PAIN is your silent teacher. PAIN will turn your mind towards righteousness.

    If there was no PAIN, bad and good would look alike. When we feel the PAIN we understand what is right and what is wrong. Once we conclude the actual cause, others will be alarmed.

    Once a while if we check whatever we do in our lives is justifiable, then we get a chance to correct ourselves. Often we talk about circumstances and situations that make us to tread the wrong path. PAIN takes its course in warning us.

    Conquer your difficulties one by one. Stand adamant. Smile away your worries and sorrows. Develop a balanced mind. Be cheerful always. Develop a new magnanimous personality. Smile and laugh. Rejoice within.

    Inhibit all surging emotions and impulses. Direct your energies in the appropriate channel towards your chosen ideal. Develop the power by self-control. Keep the instincts in harmony. Master your thoughts. Cultivate serenity of mind. Reserve your energy. Educate your will. Coordinate your innate tendencies, you will enjoy immense peace of mind. You will possess tremendous inner strength. You will have rapid progress.  PAIN will be at your service.

    The Park Bench – a poem which inspires you to live each day. 

    Beneath the long, straggly branches of an old willow tree.
    Disillusioned by life with good reason to frown,
    For the world was intent on dragging me down.
    And if that weren’t enough to ruin my day,
    A young boy out of breath approached me, all tired from play.
    He stood right before me with his head tilted down
    And said with great excitement, “Look what I found!”

    In his hand was a flower, and what a pitiful sight,
    With its petals all worn – not enough rain, or too little light.
    Wanting him to take his dead flower and go off to play,
    I faked a smile and then shifted away.
    But instead of retreating he sat next to my side
    And placed the flower to his nose and declared with overacted surprise,
    “It sure smells pretty and it’s beautiful too.
    That’s why I picked it; here, it’s for you.”

    The weed before me was dying or dead.
    Not vibrant of colors: orange, yellow or red.
    But I knew I must take it, or he might never leave.
    So I reached for the flower, and replied, “Just what I need.”
    But instead of him placing the flower in my hand,
    He held it mid-air without reason or plan.
    It was then that I noticed for the first time
    That weed-toting boy could not see he was blind.

    I heard my voice quiver; tears shone in the sun
    As I thanked him for picking the very best one.
    “You’re welcome,” he smiled, and then ran off to play,
    Unaware of the impact he’d had on my day.
    I sat there and wondered how he managed to see
    A self-pitying woman beneath an old willow tree.
    How did he know of my self-indulged plight?
    Perhaps from his heart, he’d been blessed with true sight.

    Through the eyes of a blind child, at last I could see
    The problem was not with the world; the problem was me.
    And for all of those times I myself had been blind,
    I vowed to see the beauty in life, and appreciate every second that’s mine.
    And then I held that wilted flower up to my nose
    And breathed in the fragrance of a beautiful rose
    And smiled as I watched that young boy, another weed in hand,
    About to change the life of an unsuspecting old man.
