Love is Eternal

A young wife troubled by her constant upsets with her husband traveled a long way to find a famous Guru for advice.  He greeted her warmly and having rough edges the young lady skipped the pleasantries and went right to her question asking “Is love eternal? Does it ever go away with Upsets?”  The Guru smiled knowing what she was asking but knowing that if he told her directly she would never learn.  He simply said.  Much like you rudely bypassed the pleasantries of a proper greeting and introduction when coming to see me, love is eternal and very forgiving even between mere strangers.  My love for other souls made me give you a second chance and not dismiss you for your uncouth behavior. Your love for your husband made you travel very far for an answer to your question.  Love is eternal but human relations are built on more than just love.  She started to ask another question and as rudely as she cut his warm welcome he cut her off and told her to think about it for two weeks and come back and tell him her discoveries.  He dismissed her by bowing slightly and warmly wishing her a good trip back to her village.

He expected her to be tenacious and sure enough two weeks later she was before him once again, and this time she observed all social protocols with him but not from her heart just from tradition without the warmth and joy of greeting another soul.  He saw it as progress in this young lovely soul.  He admired that despite her lack of wisdom she was strong inside and willing to follow her convictions to the end.  After the pleasantries he bid her to ask her question and she said “do you mean that Love is not strong enough to keep two people together?”  He smiled and said to her—a plant Loves light and with light it can produce food and stay healthy always.  It can actually use light 24 hours a day never tiring of it.  But light, as wonderful as it is to a plant; is not her only need, it also needs mineral and water.  Having light will make it so happy and healthy and it can the main ingredient to its healthy life but a plant getting all the light it can will wither and die without the other ingredients.  Love is like that light for us, it inspires and warms up and make us happy but we need more than love to achieve complete happiness.  Like with the plant we favour it and bend over backwards to get it but in the end without water and nutrients a relationship cannot survive.  She thought about it and knowing he was done and will dismiss her anyway she wisely got up and bid him a good day—to her great pleasure, this time from the heart.

Six months later a young lady came to see him. Her aura light was very bright and colorful and her soul was at peace though her heart was not entirely at peace.  Her composure and sweetness was such that only Gurus like him could see the pain. After warm pleasantry he realized whom she was.  He never really looks at people’s faces and bodies, he looks at their aura and recognizes their aura and this aura was transformed and showed a great deal of maturity and wisdom.  After a second look, recognized the crass young girl that had twice visited him before.   They talked calmly without hurry or purpose two just two content souls enjoying each other’s company!

All the while they were talking he smiled from the joy of seeing that she no longer had a question for him but had a lesson learned to share with him.  She told of how she was always short with her husband. He was not an easy man but just looking at her beauty always calmed him and he gave her a great deal more than what he took from her. She wanted to live her own life and enjoy their togetherness only when it pleased her thinking that life is long and she had time to give him loving after she enjoyed life the way she wanted to.  No matter how much he called to her to spend time with him, many times she found some excuse and always put others that she would have more fun with before him.  She loved him dearly but thought that her love, though she hardly ever expressed it to him, was enough and would make him understand that she wanted to spend her time doing things more exciting with others and living life while she was young so that when she was old she could give him all the loving he deserved.  She was happy living life big and although he complained he never ever left her.  She took that as a sign that love was eternal and it emboldened her belief that he can wait because she had no doubt whatsoever that he loved her dearly so he can sacrifice a little without her so she can enjoy her life.  She was short and dismissive with him and when he complained she always accused him of not understanding her or caring for her needs and because he loved her he always relented.

After her last visit she decided to be more loving to give him more and devote more time to him.  To her surprise her life was less exciting but more fulfilling.  Each day she looked forward to her first kiss in the morning and to snuggling with him in the weekends.  She loved that she was happy with his love and loving him.  She also discovered that because her heart was opening to him that they actually did a lot more things she liked before; but this time together with her friends instead of leaving him behind.  Sharing all those things with him made it more special because instead of only her memory making the fun special now they had two memories that relished those moments and noticed different things that together made the experience better. She was happy enjoying the eternal love they shared.

It happened that the long lifetime they had ahead did not pan out as he suffered a massive heart attack and almost died.  The heart that loved her so much failed.  He had only a few days to prepare as his heart was too damaged from the attack. He was conscious but barely able to move and kissing him was her greatest joy.  At this time she did not want to leave his side thinking that she only had a few days with him left but he encouraged her to leave.  She was confused because before he only wanted her with him and now only having a few days left he wanted her to enjoy life without him.  He explained that loving her when he knew she loved him back was that the gift of their eternal love. Not just guessing it but knowing and feeling her Love in his heart made him free to be without her because his heart was secure and full of her. Thinking of her enjoying herself was a joy for him and a joy that since they could not share together now he was happy to give her and receive from her as a gift when she shared it with him.  They talked about what would happen when he left and they did spend a lot of time together but he would send her for a walk and enjoyed her stories of how beautiful life was and he said that his greatest gift in the end was her sharing a life she had never seen before she admitted Love to him, a life full of brightness and joy. He told her that just listening to her stories on things she enjoyed about life even as he was dying made him happy and hopeful that she would share such joy with another love. He was not afraid of her loving another after him and even welcomed it because her happiness was his greatest joy in life and knowing she found another love would never change the Love she had for him.  For even after he said goodbye their love would remain eternal because one Love cannot replace another, it can only create its own Love separate and different than their love.  He died three weeks after his heart attack as she was telling him the story of the beautiful walk down the blooming cherry blossom and how beautiful they were. He simply looked at her and thanked her for making her life his life and smiled. The nurses that attended to him after he passed cried saying they had never seen someone die looking so content.  She knew he was content because he treasured her and died with a vision of her in the sunlight surrounded by the beauty of nature as her words share her life with him.  His love would live eternally in her and the cherry blossom tree she planted on top of his ashes would for the length of her life contain her love for him.

Seeing her smile from her soul about the joy that was her life with her husband made the Guru very happy. She had no more questions about Love. She had very few things in life that she could not enjoy or understand because her husband’s gift to her was discovering that Love is Eternal!

Google vs. Apple--Greatness Outpaced by Agility

Apple has been the leader at everything they do since the very beginning.  It clearly beat IBM it only true competitor to the punch and it beat the phone companies to the next generation phone and it beat everyone to the reinvention of the PC table into the iPad.

Apple is clearly better and greater than any other player at innovation.  However it will always lose as it has in the past to the agile copycats because in order. To be great it also has to be dictatorial.  Google is already surpassing it on copies of their phones and tablets and the gap will widen faster and faster.

Google like Microsoft before is overtaking it and will soon relegate it to a boutique brand again.  Apple need to strike the balance that now Microsoft is exhibiting before it can compete effectively beyond the first early adaptors and people showing off with the popular brand.

Be great; be an innovator, but keep pace and balance yourself with agility and a touch of humility.

What can Apple do to be more than an innovator that gets quickly outpaced? How can they hold on to the top and stay there?

Blessed Ones

A Life is Defined by Your Choices and By Those Blessed Ones that Change it with their Mere Precense

Blessed are the Ones who make life special,whether through existing in the same life path,
or by simply passing by at the right moment;

or even more obscurely by some action they and you did not know they took.

In life we are often too busy to recognize the blessed Ones,whose influence in our lives are crucial in one way or another,
without them, our lives may have taken different turns
and make whom we are  different

For such is the power of the Blessed Ones!

Not all Blessed Ones are a positive influence,many Blessed Ones affect us negatively;
but their influence nonetheless is as important as those that give us joy

for it is their negativity that teaches us a proper path in life; so they too are Blessed Ones even if they move our lives through chaos.

Let it be known, that all the blessed Ones cannot be recognized,some that have blessed you are not known to you or you to them but they have,
for some remain in obscurity and some cannot be divulged,
but for all of the blessed ones, let me say

I know what you did for me;
Thank You!

Appreciate Everyday Miracles

As I have posted before, I learn a great deal from jokes.  Here is one of my three favorite learning jokes.  I am not religious but believe in the miracle of positive thinking.  I also believe that when we ask and receive that is an everyday miracle and often as per one of my favorite songs, when we wish and not receive that could also be a miracle because it may turn out that what we wished for was not very good for us!  Here is the joke:

A Joke with Wisdom never to be forgotten

A religious man is on top of a roof during a great flood. A man comes by in a boat and says "get in, get in!" The religious man replies, " no I have faith in God, he will grant me a miracle."
Later the water is up to his waist and another boat comes by and the guy tells him to get in again. He responds that he has faith in god and god will give him a miracle. With the water at about chest high, another boat comes to rescue him, but he turns down the offer again cause "God will grant him a miracle."
With the water at chin high, a helicopter throws down a ladder and they tell him to get in, mumbling with the water in his mouth, he again turns down the request for help for the faith of God. He arrives at the gates of heaven with broken faith and says to Peter, I thought God would grand me a miracle and I have been let down." St. Peter chuckles and responds, "I don't know what you're complaining about, we sent you three boats and a helicopter."

Miracles do not have to be supernatural to be miracles!

Jesus and some of the saints performed some flashy miracles and so I suppose when we think of miracles we often think of something supernatural happening to prove it a miracle.  It is said that God works in mysterious ways and if that is true He would not normally be flashy unless He needed to be for His on purposes.  This joke illustrates His wisdom, even in the deadly sin of the vanity of the man to expect a flashy miracle; He takes him into his bosom anyway and tries to help him.  Every day we encounter things that makes us happy to be alive and gives us joy and behind each moment of joy hides unseen and unsung—a personal miracle!

What personal miracles have you experienced?
What is what you would consider the flashiest miracle in your life?

Crosses to Bear

The crosses we bear that hurt the most cannot be removed by money or material things only by enlightenment

When we focus on the darkness (Lo Negro) one loses the chance to see the light even if it is next to the darkness,

When we see what others have we fail to see what we have because we are not appreciating our lives and instead are living lives that are not ours to live,

When we envy what is not ours we lose the focus to obtain what we envy because we stop ourselves at envy and never give ourselves the chance to move towards achieving what we envy,

When we feel darkness loom over us, we often embrace it for it blinds us and keeps us safe wallowing in self-pity—but if we never stop looking for the light—when we find it we will see the beauty that this world gives us far outweighs the dark numbness of despair…

If life weighs more than we can bear and it starts sinking us, exercise your courage and find the strength to dispel the darkness that blinds our eyes when we the see great lives others live and fail to see the great things that we all have in our own lives…

One of the secrets of life is that—no matter how good it seems for others, they see a darkness too and save for the most enlightened gurus, they envy, despair, and wallow in self-pity too, even if they are on top their 300 foot yacht eating caviar with gold spoons and sun bathing in diamond bikinis—everyone in life have their crosses to bear!

When you envy look with open eyes and you may see what crosses the one you envy carries and most likely you will not want to trade your crosses for theirs!

What crosses do you see others carrying that you do not give thanks for not having to bear?

I Love Nicotine More Than I Love You

Author's Note:  This article has been reprinted in several newspapers and has been reposted numerous time on the net since it was released in 2002 by a supporter of mine who know about the press.  You can see the original press release at: 

I love you,
I love you more than life,
I would give my life for you my daughter.....
But I am too selfish to quit,
I know it hurts you physically and emotionally but I am too addicted to even consider quitting,
My daughter believe me I love you even when I smoke in the car next to you and later hand you your asthma puffer,
My daughter believe me that I love you even if my selfish addition causes me to leave your hospital bedside when you have a respiratory infection I contributed to...just to love my addiction more than you,
My daughter I love you but I cannot consider leaving my addiction even when you beg me to stop because it irritates your eyes and causes you ear infections...I can only think of me at those times,
My daughter I love you and I am so sorry I let you die alone calling for me, when I was adoring the poison that killed you, it was just 5 minutes away from you surely you understand; it called me more than your need for me, but I let you die alone after I took your life away with my poison, my poison let you die alone…and as I used it to calm my nerves as I watched you far from you through the open door of the mortuary because I need it more than I need to feel close to you before they buried you…
My husband I love you but I cannot put your wishes and needs before my addiction, I cannot listen when you beg me to stop for our daughter and for me and you,
My husband I love you and want to be there for you and our daughter but you know I need to smoke to keep my weight down-its a great excuse,
My husband I love you, but all of my friends smoke and I need to fit in, can’t you think of my needs for once when you ask me to quit after our daughters gets her bad asthmas attacks?
My husband I love you but you know I cannot stop because I need my addiction to make my life complete,
I know you love me but stop being selfish and think of me, I need to have a little pleasure in life, I don’t complain when you snore all night long, please do not give me guilt trips when you and our daughters get a cold more often than others,
My husband I would give my life for you so please do not tell me that my skin is aging fast, my voice is like that of an old lady, and my breathe smells like an ashtray, I love you but not even my love is stronger than my need for my fix.....
My daughter I love you and wanted you to live a long healthy life, but even when faced with your cancer, and knowing I contributed to it, I still leave your bedside to go to my addiction for comfort....

My husband, my sickly daughter, I love you both more than life itself, even when I literarily help take the life out of you and me!
