“ The process of life should be the birth of a soul. This is the highest alchemy, and this justifies our presence on earth. This is our calling and our virtue.” Henry Frederic Amiel.
Friends, life is a series of seasons......... There are moments full of happiness and fulfilment, and there are moments overflooded with sadness.
“ Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning, if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.” Carl Jung.
Thoughts make a man. Beautiful thoughts can make one’s life beautiful. Only a great present can lay foundation for a successful future. So, we should live in the present and make it the best possible. Time and tide wait for none. Life is a divine gift, we should nurture it, and make the most of it. “ Life is all about choices. How many people are trapped in their everyday habits- part numb, part frightened, part indifferent.
Man is the creator of his own destiny. He should have trust in himself , God is always by his side. He is a part of THE INFINITE,..................... so nothing is impossible for him. Hence, he should live for a purpose greater than himself . “ Just imagine that the purpose of life is your happiness onlythen life becomes a cruel and senseless thing. You have to embrace what the wisdom of humanity, your intellect and your heart tell you : that the meaning of life is to serve the force that sent you into the world........ then life becomes a joy .” - Leo Tolstoy. Friends , life gives us in return what we share with this world. This life is a priceless creation of THE DIVINE, and this design of the divine is perfect in its form of execution . is pleasant, death is peaceful. It is the transition that’s troublesome.”
– Issac Asimov
“To laugh often and love much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children. To earn the approbation of honest critics, to appreciate beauty, to give off one’s self........ To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition. To have played and
laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation, to know even one life has breathed easier, because you have lived- that is to have SUCCEEDED” - Ralph Waldo Emerson. Friends, just don’t go through this book for the sake of reading only.............try not to miss these catches ever in your life. These catches of life will make you win the... “Match of life”.
Every happening in our lives has a common feature: “The Catch”. The vital constituent that seems to be concealed in the depth of matters...... But is really obvious . Look a little deeper in your lives and you will surely discover it.
The Catch about Love
“Love is a canvas, furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination”
Love flows like a gentle river between two people......
Love makes all differences disappear. People say that love can happen anytime, anywhere... but....... for how long does this love last? Have you ever lost yourself in the magic of true love ???
Each and everyone of us has had a feel of love at some stage of our lives. When in love, it seems we have everything in our lives. We experience a state of eternal bliss, a sense of completeness in our life. We want to lose ourselves completely in this feel of true love. Sometimes, love can be one-sided , but this love has a short life. Love is incomplete , unfulfilled , meaningless in such situations . It is said, love someone who loves ‘you’. But, we always chase the one ‘we’ love. That is why we call love strange. It just happens. It often blooms in strange circumstances. In this fast changing world, what we search for is true selfless love- which is so hard to get. To talk about our relationships , love seems to be getting lost day-by-day. Why ??? ......a simple reason is nowadays we do not have time even for the people who make our world and whom we love so much. We simply keep waiting for the right moment to arise, a time when we will express our love ,a time when we will give more time to our family.
Relations begin as a result of love but as time passes by, love seems to be getting lost. The string that holds the relationship together seems to get weaker and weaker and loses its hold eventually. There is one such ‘love’ that never withers away...... - the love of a mother for her child. This love has the strength to face all the storms of life, and keeps on growing with time...... to say the least this love is ‘timeless’. “ Love is a spring , that never stops flowing .” The fact of the matter is – “Friends, we were born to spread the message of love” , so lets try to love a little more......., so that love exists forever, forever and forever........ Love exists in three realms of existence : Physical , mental and ...spiritual. Love in physical realms refers to the bodily love. The ‘feel’ of touch. The harmonious interaction of two bodies . Love in mental realms is nothing ,...but intense feeling for our partner. there is a strong emotional connect between the two. They always know what’s going on in their mind and their thoughts run in unison. Love in spiritual realms refers to the intermingling of souls. The state when the souls merge into oneness.
“ Only in the state of true love, will the beautiful fragrant flower of freedom and supreme bliss, unfold its petals and bloom. ”
“ Love is a miracle, love is a flower and it blooms at the weirdest hour. ” Friends, what all we have is this small period of time called ‘life’, to experience the feel of infinite love. So, begin now coz this life is too short . ‘Fall in love, feel this life .......coz’ if you never fall in love, you will never live enough .’ “ They do not love, that do not show their love. The course of true love , never did run smooth. Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel, but love .” - William Shakespeare
The Catch about Challenges in our lives
Challenges are gifts that
force us to search for a new centre of gravity. Don’t fight them. Just find a different way to stand.” - Oprah Winfrey.
Embrace your challenges and get transformed . It seems good to hear, but ......do we really feel this way ??? Challenges force us to retreat . Challenges urge us to back off. Why ? Just because we see them as obstructions in our path. But , my friends these challenges simply test our strengths, and help us evolve to a higher level of existence. Challenges add to the strength of our character. Now tell me just one thing – ‘Don’t you like the twists and turns of the road ? Does moving on a straight road seem that adventurous ? So, my friends life would seem to be a cake-walk without challenges, but at the same time would be like a ‘soup without salt’. Challenges are opportunities in disguise. Challenges can help to bring out our hidden potential and give us thrust to move forward in life with new vigour and energy . “ Men who for truth and honour’s sake, stand fast and suffer long. Brave men who work while others sleep, who dare while others fly. lift them Emerson. .....they build a nation’s pillars deep ,and to the sky.” - Ralph Waldo
“ A challenge is like a chariot ,that can speed up the pace of our life,
.................. provided we know how to mount it .” Whenever , a challenge ...or a difficult situation arises we have two ways of dealing with it – Either to fight it or to move back (escape...!) Which way would you go ? Remember my friends, the strength of our character is revealed by the way we handle the challenges of our lives. As dawn follows the darkest hours of the night, much the same way, success awaits us at the other end of these challenges thrown on our path. The real evolution of our soul takes place the day, we begin to see every challenge in our lives as an opportunity, as a gateway to help us to rise to the next level of existence.
“ It is time for us all to stand and cheer for the doer , the achiever , the one who recognises the challenge and does something about it ”. - Vince Lombardi (Football coach)
