Everything is in you

Posting a inspirational story from Power of now novel

 A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a
stranger walked by. "Spare some change?" mumbled the beggar, mechanically
holding out his old baseball cap. "I have nothing to give you," said the stranger. Then
he asked: "What's that you are sitting on?" "Nothing," replied the beggar. "Just an old
box. I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember." "Ever looked inside?"
asked the stranger. "No," said the beggar. "What's the point? There's nothing in
there." "Have a look inside," insisted the stranger. The beggar managed to pry open
the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw that the box was filled with
I am that stranger who has nothing to give you and who is telling you to look
inside. Not inside any box, as in the parable, but somewhere even closer: inside
"But I am not a beggar," I can hear you say.
Those who have not found their true wealth, which is the radiant joy of Being
and the deep, unshakable peace that comes with it, are beggars, even if they have
great material wealth. They are looking outside for scraps of pleasure or fulfillment,
for validation, security, or love, while they have a treasure within that not only
includes all those things but is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.
The word enlightenment conjures up the idea of some super-human
accomplishment, and the ego likes to keep it that way, but it is simply your natural
state of felt oneness with Being. It is a state of connectedness with something
immeasurable and indestructible, something that, almost paradoxically, is essentially
you and yet is much greater than you. It is finding your true nature beyond name and
form. The inability to feel this connectedness gives rise to the illusion of separation,
from yourself and from the world around you. You then perceive yourself,
consciously or unconsciously, as an isolated fragment. Fear arises, and conflict within
and without becomes the norm.

To the best woman in my life,my mom

Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field, since the payment is pure love.  ~Mildred B. Vermont

To the best woman in my life,my mom

You are beautiful! I always wanted to say you that, wanted to thank you indeed.
I always wanted to know which is the invisible magic wand you hold, how you recognize my voice when I am too sad or too happy. How can you be so tolerant when I am angry with you? Unsaid words of mines are well understood by you.Don't you get tired when I give you list of my favorites dishes and ask you to cook. Are you a superwoman inside who loves to protect me?
Why do you feel so hurt when neighbor’s even say a word for me, you know it’s my mistake still you fight with neighbor’s?What’s in your eyes when it’s my success? How can you be so sweet all the time?still why keep scolding me about all the wrong things I do,but I love the  good night kiss you give me every night.
Don’t you feel sleepy when I am fighting with fever all night! I love you mom when you give me biggest bite of cake .Tell me you never felt bad when I use to drink half of you cane juice!!!Hating chocolates must not be so much funn….as you know I loved it.Are your all dreams associated with me.why my one smile brings sunshine to your face. Was it not quirky to clean my vomit!
How can you be sweet all the time? I love you when you say my name in new rhyme and I can’t ever find your taste in five star hands!i know you love to see those old crazy movies of Amitabh,still you let me watch MTV.I can find  your life in every part of my life .
Thank you cannot describe what you keep giving to me

Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place to make it well?
My mother.
~Ann Taylor

Promise to yourself

“Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you! ”

I was coming back from my office to home and in no mood  to get down out of rickshaw to get those French fries.
So i thought why not make it at home!!
Here is the recipe I am sharing with you all

Potatoes -1/2 kg (2 persons)

Peel the potatoes
Cut the edges and make into shapes as long frenchfries.
Take a bowl ,add water and salt 
Put all the peeled potatoes into that bowl.
Keep it for some time.
Remove the water from the bowl,make sure no water left in the potatoes too.
otherwise while frying oil and water will have bad effect ;) i mean it fly on your face
then take a kadai ,add oil into it
After the oil is hot ,fry those potatoes till it become little golden.
