Seek and Hide, Hide and Seek

Neither finite, nor infinite
Never born, no death
Neither more, nor any less
Thou had me, I will have you too
It has you, you will have it too
Ahh! there you are, Aye where did you go
Where are thou…

Tech Support...

Tech Support:  Yes, how can I help you?  

Customer:   Well, after much consideration, I’ve decided to install Love.  Can you guide me through the process?  

Tech Support:  Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?  

Customer:  Well, I’m not very technical, but I think I’m ready. What do I do first?    

Tech Support:  The first step is to open your Heart. Have you located your Heart?    

Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to install Love while they are running?  

Tech Support:  What programs are running?  

Customer:  Let’s see, I have Past Hurt, Low Self-Esteem, Grudge and Resentment running right now.  

Tech Support:   No problem, Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory but it will no longer disrupt other programs. Love will eventually override Low Self-Esteem with a module of its own called High Self-Esteem. However, you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment. Those programs prevent Love from being properly installed. Can you turn those off?  

Customer:  I don’t know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?  

Tech Support:  With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have been completely erased. 
I loved this!  

Customer:  Okay, done! Love has started installing itself. Is that normal?  

Tech Support:  Yes, but remember that you have only the base program.  You need to begin connecting to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades. 

Customer:  Oops! I have an error message already. It says, “Error – Program not running on internal components.” What should I do? 

Tech Support:  Don’t worry. It means that the Love program is set up to run on Internal Hearts, but has not yet been run on your Heart. In non-technical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others.  

Customer:  So, what should I do?  

Tech Support:  Pull down Self-Acceptance; then click on the following  files:  Forgive-Self; Realize Your Worth; and Acknowledge your Limitations.  

Customer:  Okay, done.  

Tech Support:  Now, copy them to the “My Heart” directory. The system will  overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming.  Also, you need to delete Verbose Self-Criticism from all directories and empty your Recycle Bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.  

Customer:  Got it. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files. Smile   is playing on  my monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves  all over My Heart.   Is this normal?  

Tech Support: Sometimes. For others it takes awhile, but eventually everything gets it at the proper time. So Love is installed and running.  One more thing before we hang up. Love is Freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everyone you meet. They will in turn share it with others and return some cool   modules back to you. 
Customer:  Thank you, God.

Eternity

"Isn't it strange that princes and kings,
And clowns that caper in sawdust rings,
And common folk like you and me,
Are builders for eternity?

To each is given a bag of tools.
A Shapeless mass, and a book of rules;
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone."

10 things to learn from Japan - may the Japanese rise afterall its the land of rising sun

Every act of creation is in fact an act of destruction and vice-versa. 
Here is an interesting mail I got from my niece...thought it's worth sharing about the recent developments in Japan, read on...

1. THE CALM
 -Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief.

2. THE DIGNITY -
Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.


3. THE ABILITY
 -The incredible architects. For instance - Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.


4. THE GRACE
 -People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.


5. THE ORDER
 -No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.


6. THE SACRIFICE -
Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid? 


7. THE TENDERNESS -
Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.


8. THE TRAINING

9. THE MEDIA
 -They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage. 


10. THE CONSCIENCE -
When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly.

The Monkey and the Cap Seller (Remake)


There was a cap seller. He went from town to town to sell caps. Sometimes he had to pass the forest.

At night he kept his caps and slept under a tree. In the morning when he got up his caps were missing.

He looked here and there and heard some noise and he looked up and saw that the monkeys had taken his caps.

The cap sellers threw stones on the monkeys and the monkeys threw mangoes to protect themselves from the cap sellers.

The cap seller had an idea. He took his cap and threw it on the grass. The monkeys also threw the caps on the grass.


The cap seller took the caps happily. ~The End 

NOW ... THE REMAKE!

The cap seller always use to say this story to his grandsons and after a few years the same situation arises to one of his grandson, when he was resting under a tree  some monkeys took all his caps. Then he remember the story said by his grandfather. He took his cap and threw it on the ground. Then he waited for some time for monkeys to do the same thing but it didn’t happened and one monkey came down and slapped him on his face and said 

“Even we had grandfathers buddy”
