Confusing day in America

Thursday, July 26, 2012

That's how it is!

A young man called Rama Swami died an untimely death.

They all happened to be disciples of a holy man whom they called 'Maharaj Ji'. His parents, wife and nine year old son were crying bitterly sitting next to his dead body. When Maharaj Ji learnt that Rama Swami had died, he came vo visit the family.
He entered the house and found the family wailing unconsolably. Seeing Maharaj Ji, the wife started crying even louder. She sobbed saying, "Maharaj Ji, he has died too early, he was so young... I'm so helpless and miserable." 
Oh! I would do anything to make him alive again. What will happen to our son? 

Maharaj Ji tried to pacify the crying lady and the old parents, 
But the loss was too much for them to come to terms with so easily.
Eventually, Maharaj Ji said, "Alright, get me a glass of water." 
Maharaj Ji sat near the dead body and put the glass next to it.
Rama Swami shall come back to life, but the person who drinks the water shall die 

There was pin drop silence..! 

He said, "Now, who ever wants that Rama Swami should become alive again, may drink this water. "Come, did you not say that Rama Swami was the sole bread winner of the family? Who would die instead of him? It is a case of fair exchange, isn't it?" 

The wife looked at the old mother and the old mother looked at the wife. The old father looked at Rama Swami's son. 
But no one came forward...

Then Maharaj Ji said to the old father, "Babuji, wouldn't you give your life for your son?" The old man said, "Well, I have my responsibility towards my wife. If I die who will look after her? I cannot offer my life."

Maharaj Ji asked the son, "Well little boy, would you like to give your life for your father?" The child's mother said "Maharaj Ji,are you insane?..My son is only nine. He has not yet lived his life." All others had their genuine reasons to present.

Maharaj Ji said, "Well it seems, that all of you are very much needed for the things you need to do in this world... It seems Rama Swami was the only one that could be spared... That is why God chose to take him away.

So shall we now proceed with his last rites?... It's getting late. Having said that, Maharaj Ji got up and left. 

In the words of a learned man ... "We tend a plant only when the leaves are green; the rest are only memories of happy times..! Further, God has a great design for every individual human being, and they have their role to play in this game on earth."

...that a child is fed with milk and praise.

Mary Lamb said that, and she was right. Our Little
Ones depend on us to remind them of Who They
Really Are. Do not miss a single change to do that.

And while you are at it, offer some praise, daily, to
the Child Within. Your personal Little One could use
some love right now. In fact, always.

Smile ! it is good for you

Comparison of two greats



A woman in our diet club was lamenting that she had gained weight.

She'd made her family's favorite cake over the weekend, she reported, and they'd eaten half of it at dinner.

The next day, she said, she kept staring at the other half, until finally she cut a thin slice for herself. One slice led to another, and soon the whole cake was gone.

The woman went on to tell us how upset she was with her lack of willpower, and how she knew her husband would be disappointed.

Everyone commiserated, until someone asked what her husband said when he found out.

She smiled. "
He never found out. I made another cake and ate half!"

....that challenges are what you came for. And you are 
never, ever, given a challenge you cannot overcome.

The purpose of life is to give you a chance to be the
grandest version of the greatest vision ever you held

Known carcinogens around your home

Toxic, carcinogenic chemicals are in your food containers, cleaning products, cosmetics, mothballs and more.
Globally, the burden of cancer increased two folds between 1975 and 2000, and it is said to double again by 2020, and triple by 2030. While tobacco, we know is highly carcinogenic, there are many other toxic chemicals that can put you at an increased risk of cancer. Look into our list of carcinogens (cancer causers) around the house, and try eliminating them from your home.

Remove these cancer hazards from your home

1. Non-stick cookware

Yes, they might help reduce your oil intake, but they can potentially put you at a higher risk of cancer. Early studies show that non-stick surfaces that contain perfluorooctanoic acid can put one at risk of liver cancer. So do away with your non-stick pots and pans, and use stainless-steel ones. Coat them with vegetable oil before cooking to reduce oil consumption.

2. Aluminium utensils

Aluminium carries a substantial risk of toxicity. Studies in the recent past have shown that leaching of aluminium into food can put one at risk of cancer and also Alzheimer’s. However, scratch-resistant, anodised aluminium cookware is safe, as it prevents leaching of the metal into food. But make sure you throw them if you see it chip away.

3. Plastic containers

While choosing plastic containers for food and water, it’s important to remember that not all plastics are safe and that the chemicals used can be highly carcinogenic. Most plastic items have an identification coding system.  Based on that, choose the safer options.
In any case, plastics are not your best bet for food and water. If you can’t do away with plastic completely, at least make sure you throw away old containers, particularly those with heavy scratches. Older plastics tend to leach increasing amounts of toxins. Also,  do not microwave foods in plastic containers. Heating plastics increases the chances of leaching chemicals entering your food, exposing you to toxins.

4. Scented candles

Artificially scented paraffin wax candles that produce soot are very bad for you. Always opt for beeswax candles as they are a safer bet any day.  

5. Air fresheners

Most air fresheners contain naphthalene and formaldehyde, two very well-known carcinogens. Additionally, they also contain many other toxic chemicals. If you do want a sweet scent around your home, use natural aromatic oils. To do away with bad odour, you could keep a small cup with baking soda around the corners of a room. Baking soda helps absorb all odour, leaving your living space free of any bad smells.

6. Dry cleaning

Dry cleaning involves using a host of chemicals like benzene, formaldehyde, naphthalene trichloroethylene – all of which are highly toxic carcinogens. And if you have ever smelt your dry-cleaned clothes you’ll be familiar with a petrol-like odour. That odour essentially comes from chemical fumes emitting from your dry-cleaned clothes, and it stay on for days together. This could potentially increasing your exposure to harmful, cancer-causing chemicals. So avoid dry cleaning as much as possible.

7. Mothballs

Yes, they smell terrible. Mothballs essentially contain naphthalene, as pointed out earlier, a very well-known carcinogen. The scent of mothballs in your wardrobe and on your clothes means you’re inhaling a harmful insecticide. Do away with these altogether and use organic moth and insect repellents instead.

8. Other pesticides and insecticides

There are a host of products today that claim to eliminate everything from roaches to ants that make your home their den. These sprays and solutions may rid your house of insects but contain many harmful cancer-causing toxins. There are many natural solutions that can do the same job effectively. Here are some options: For roaches, make a mixture of one cup baking soda with one spoon of sugar. Scatter it around the house. The sugar ends up attracting cockroaches whereas the baking soda works as poison. For ants, you could try wiping your kitchen counter and any other places you find a trickle of ants with white vinegar.

9. Paints and varnishes

Paints contain VOCs, meaning volatile organic compounds, which are known carcinogens. These VOCs in paint are released into the air and can cause harm even years after application. Make sure you choose paints with low or no-VOC finishes to steer clear of this harmful toxin in your home.

...that you are part of a Larger Whole, and you are
never, ever alone.

It is tempting, during difficult times, to feel very much
alone, as if you are taking this journey in solo form,
with no one at your side, and no one on your side.
Nothing could be further from the truth.

You are an aspect of The Divine. God lives in you,
through you. "I am with you always, even unto the end
of time" are not just pretty words. They are truth.
