'Save the Seeds of Life'- what would you do? 20 seconds Read.

'Save the Seeds of Life' - a true story. 

"Every mighty Oak you see today, was once a nut (Seed)"  - A small eye opener.

Some time back (nearly more than a month and half ago) my naughty seven half yr old daughter was busy collecting something in our back yard and from the road side.

I asked her, "What are you doing, collecting rubbish?"
She looked at me squarely in the face, opening her palms and said, "Mamma, don't you know, I'm collecting these seeds to save them ?", looking at me as if it was such a foolish question I had asked her.
"We need to save more seeds, see how the wind has blown so many of them?", she said in all her innocence and a maturity beyond her age, whilst busily stuffing some of them in her pockets. 

I was a little taken aback at her gesture and her thoughts, so I asked her, "Where did you learn this from, betu?"
She promptly looked at me and said, "Ma, you forgot our lesson in school on seeds, germination and sprouting and saplings turning to trees when planted in soil?  Remember, You taught me all about them and we did so many Questions & Answers and even grew our little nursery  in the tray, how could you forget so fast, Mamma?"

Now she was earnestly digging the soil with a sharp stone as I watched her shocked and mesmerised now.....
"See Maa, if we can plant all of them seeds then we will have a beautiful forest garden here and then maybe we could get some deer and tigers also to live here and then we don't have to go so far to the Zoo to see them?"
"What should we call it? Will the 'Tiger Forest Garden' be a good name? "

I felt a pang in my throat at her childhood naivety and her straightforward words and I promised myself to do something about this, as we both now squatted collecting all the seeds .....

...  What do You think You can do to save Seeds??  .....

Life is not a race ... Free your spirit to move on...

"Yes, I believe and from my own personal experiences at all levels - its always better to maintain your own dignity and integrity at all times.
It keeps one's own self 'free' and empowered to just be.
Karma always takes care of everything else.
Free your spirit and ride the tides, spearheading through unbounded, limitless, radiant light!!  With a sea of love in your heart that encompasses one and all in its huge embrace - step out, move on.... Life is real. Life is true. Life is not a Race...... yet we are all each racing against time...."

A story of Gratitude

Must Read ... A Heart Touching Story 

A Glass of Milk – Paid In Full

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thou
ght he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.” He said, “Then I thank you from my heart.”

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Year’s later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She began to read the following words:

“Paid in full with one glass of milk”

Signed, Dr. Howard Kelly

The Carpenters - Sing a Song - Happy Children's Day ; we all love this song ....

"O Lord! Please shine down on me"

'O Lord! Please shine down on me'      24th Dec'2011
O Lord! Help me today.
Clear the cobwebs away.
So from truth I never stray.
Please in my heart forever stay.

From darkness and sorrow, take me unto light.
From all fears and tears, help me fight.
And make my dreams, my good wishes alight.
Onto new ventures and horizons bright.  ......
