Questions which can create wonders!!

Questions which can create wonders!!

  • What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
  • How much would you give if you knew you would get back all that you needed and more?
  • What will it take for you to WAKE UP and really do what you want to do in this life?
  • Who you are?
  • What is the purpose of your life? What do you want to do in this lifetime?
  • Most valuable thing/things in your Life?
  • Most needed thing?

These are the few questions everyone should be with.  Keep wondering about them.  Just being with them is pure grace. Don’t let them die. For precious most important questions.. One who knows will not give you an answer, and the one who answers, does not know. You have to reach by your own an them only you can understand. Reach there and you will further need not any answers. Bhagwatgita, Upanishads all the great sculptures are based on certain questions. You are more than welcome to share your take on them.

There are various questions but few are genuine ones. When we ask ‘why’, it is associated with misery. We never ask ‘why’ when we are happy. Understand why we are asking the question ‘why’!

Wonder and question – they are opposite in nature, and also in the same realm. Wonder is a question, but not looking for an answer, or asked from inquisitiveness – when you really want to know. (SSRS)

“When a question turns into a wonder – life becomes WONDERful”. (SSRS)

Zeus

Bellow are some quotes @ questions..

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.

— Albert Einstein

The question is not whether we will die, but how we will live.

— Joan Borysenko

Curiosity will conquer fear even more than bravery will.

— James Stephens

If love is the answer, could you rephrase the question?

— Lily Tomlin

To be or not to be isn’t the question. The question is how to prolong being.

— Tom Robbins

Live your questions now, and perhaps even without knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answers.

— Rainer Maria Rilke

Thinking without questioning is like drinking without swallowing. —A

About Food from Bawa!!

Following is from Bawa’s blog regarding FOOD!!

Q. Bawa please write about food on your blog – effects of different kinds of food and what are the right foods to eat … and whether its the same for everyone … and if not … how do we know whats good and right for us ?? :) … and what to eat at what times of the day etc..  ?

A. There are so many, many recipes. This is the food I eat and am reasonably healthy ?.

You will need to see a good ayurved to figure out what exactly are the foods that are good for you, but as a rule of the thumb, avoid white sugar, and refined white flour (maida), and go easy on the chillies, onions and garlic. Eat on time everyday, meaning if you have dinner at 7:30 pm, have it earliest by 7:15 pm, latest by 7:45 pm.

Our body prefers alkaline food to acidic food, and so you should have 80% alkaline food and 20% acidic food. Here is a good source for figuring out what food is acidic and needs to be avoided and what is alkaline and should be consumed more. We will put up a very beautiful chart in the shop section of the site for you to buy in a while…

To loose weight, don’t eat after 8:00 pm, and don’t mix carbs and proteins in the same meal. Ayurveda says that after eating anything, even a biscuit, you should wait 3 hours before eating anything else, however you should not stay hungry for more than 6 hours. Sadhana, Seva and Satsang on a very regular, consistent basis will help a lot, as will some sort of cardio exercise, brisk, walking, jumping, jogging etc. No non veg food of any sort, no alcohol, no smoking, no drugs, etc will keep your system in top condition!

Hope you must have clicked above if not then click bello now 🙂

Masterpiece (Or Master’s piece)

Sharing beautiful knowledge sheet (Thanks Akkibhai).

******

A plum once said, just because a banana lover came by, I converted myself into a banana. Unfortunately, his taste changed after a few months and so I became an orange. When he said I was bitter I became an apple, but he went in search of grapes. Yielding to the opinions of so many people, I have changed so many times that I no more know who I am. Now I wish I had remained a plum and waited for a plum lover.

Just because a group of people do not accept you as you are, there is no necessity for you to strip yourself of your originality. You need to think good of yourself, for the world takes you at your own estimate. Never stoop down in order to gain recognition. Never let go of your true self to win a relationship. In the long run, you will regret that you traded your greatest glory – your uniqueness, for momentary validation. Even Gandhi was not accepted by many people. The group that does not accept you as you is not your world.

There is a world for each one of you, where you shall reign as king / queen by just being yourself. Find that world… in fact, that world will find you.

What water can do, gasoline cannot and what copper can, gold cannot. The fragility of the ant enables it to move and the rigidity of the tree enables it to stay rooted. Everything and everybody has been designed with a proportion of uniqueness to serve a purpose that we can fulfil only by being our unique self. You as you alone can serve your
purpose and I as I alone can serve my purpose. You are here to be you… just you.

There was a time in this world when a Krishna was required and he was sent; a time when a Christ was required and he was sent; a time when a Mahatma was required and he was sent; a time when a J.R.D.Tata was required and he was sent. There came a time when you were required on this planet and hence you were sent. Let us be the best we can be. Don’t miss yourself and let the world not miss you.

flower2
In the history of the universe, there has been nobody like you and to the infinite of time to come, there will be no one like you. Existence should have loved you so much that it broke the mould after making you, so that another of your kind will never get repeated. You are original. You are rare. You are unique. You are a wonder. You are a
masterpiece. .. you are
Master’s piece. Celebrate your Uniqueness.

******

Don’t be a football of other opinions.. be yourself. Live and act according to your inner call and enjoy life. One of my teacher used to say  “Sabase Bada Rog… Kya Kahenge Log”. Aim for higher self, peace, joy , love ..which is our true nature.  Everybody is looking for only one thing….thats Love but we someone looks it in form of respect, recognition etc etc…

Get tuned , Sing, Dance, Smile, Praise, Do seva ….You are unique and every moment has uniqueness too. Be with it and you are always newer too.

Love 🙂

C’est pas important de gagner tout le temps.

Si on gagne, on peut avoir un prix, un cadeau…

Trees for Tomorrow

We had a fun last Saturday (May 9th). Group from UC planted 2000 trees at Glenwood Garden.  

Thanks to Shaun Finley (Energy Sustainability Coordinator, UC) for all arrangements. UC Sustainability sponsored for plants, lunch and community service hours. Glenwood garden provided space in their beautiful 700 acre park.  We had 50+ volunteers. We started from UC in bus at 10 am and got back about 2:20 pm back at UC. This will help offset carbon footprint of UC.

AOL UC Chapter planning such events as a part of Mission Green Earth. We would like to work with Shaun (UC sustainability) to organize such more events. If anyone likes to design any such program you are more than welcome to contact and we can work together.  Lets make earth more greener and better place to live.

Here is one song dedicated to you (from Pankaj Tripathi)

You fill up my senses
Like a night in a forest
Like a mountain in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again
Come let me love you
Let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter
Let me die in your arms
Let lay down beside you
Let me always be with you
Come let me love you
Come love me again
