Celebrate Today- Bounce back!

I remember some author say it so well, "There are no failures; only lessons!". I used to watch this T.V. serial on Drug Addiction. A youth gets into college and bad company, does drugs, his life is totally destroyed, so is his family. He has problems all around and to top it now his health which is totally dependent on drugs. He wants to escape from his problems and take a train to the last station in India. He reaches there after days of journey, alights and finds another youth like him. He asks, "Is this the last station of India?" The wise youth replies, "It is as you see, from the other end which you came it is the last, from this end it is the first." Those words still hit me hard when I feel it is the end of the road. I take courage in the words which tell me to change my perspective and make a new beginning. Friends, are you encountering some failures, don't give up, change your outlook, start again. Failures aren't final and finally if you bounce back you aren't a failure. Celebrate Today, bounce back!

Celebrate Today- Throw you heart over the bar...

A high jumper who used to hold the world record in the past for clearing a bar of 7 feet, 4 inches was asked, how he could jump over a bar that was way to high over his height. He replied, "I throw my heart over the bar and my body follows" Friends, successful people do just that which we need to learn from. 'Throw you heart in whatever you do. It may be studies, job, business, relations etc. and you will soon find that your body though unwilling will follow and adapt. You will master something that seemed impossible. That's why we have world records in sports, inventions to make our lives more facilitating, people scaling mountains. So what are you doing today? Celebrate Today by throwing your heart over the bar and ...
You got it!
Joy be all yours.

Celebrate Today- Fill your cup with love!

Many times we fight against the negative forces. We try to push hard against hatred, jealousy, anger and other ills of life. The more we do so, the more we empower them for now our focus is more on the negative things and their power over our lives. When a glass is filled with muddy water and you desire clear and clean water, what do you do? You take clean water and keep pouring till the muddy water overflows out of the glass and the glass is again filled with the clean water! You don't fight against the muddy or go on struggling to locate the mud and how it go there. The law says the glass cannot be empty if you fill it with muddy water or clean water, it has to be occupied with something. If you fill it half the other half would be filled with gases. So our duty is to keep on pouring the things we desire! Pour in love and hatred will run out, pour in confidence and fear will take flight, pour in joy and sorrow will be shown the door. So don't struggle keep pouring your cup of life with love, joy, peace and goodness and you don't have to worry of the negative forces for they will have no room to occupy your life. So celebrate today, fill your cup, you know with what.

Celebrate Today- Breath is Life!

"When the breath wanders the mind is also unsteady. But when the breath is calm, the mind too will be still, and the yogi achieves long life.Therefore one should learn to control the breath. Svatmarama. This is a wonderful quote! We know that Bible talks of God breathing his breath and man and woman coming alive. When a person dies, his breath stops.  Breath is life itself. We many times ignore this. Let us learn to take long deep breathes, we know this when our stomachs move. Everyday when we take time to take deep breathes, we will have an oxygenated cells and better body and a healthy mind. When the breath is  shallow, your mind will be poisoned. Detoxify your whole being, take a deep breath today and continue the practice, remember 'Breath is life of God in you'.
