Humanity Becoming Extinct !!! September 11, 2010

Filed under: Personal :) — Trupti Shah @ 7:31 pm

2 days back something happened which actually made me feel bad, ridiculous & so disgusted of being a part of such a world where everyone is so busy…running for achieving something.. or yet running for just achieving nothing at all.People who are the one’s who have actually got us into existance, are now treated so badly.Yes im taking abt elders who are of our grandparents generation. There have been times when im walking behind an older person I’ve got impatient and upset with their walking speed & I’ve have simply in high-speed zoomed around them being in a hurry to get nowhere & just walked past them. Bt im so proud to say that at time I have done the deeds right. I have STOPPED myself from being like a sickass,who is running in this world ignoring everything, just to help them.Yes I have open doors for them as well as caught it till they don’t get done with coming to d other side of the door. There have been times I press the brakes & have let them cross the road when I’m driving the car. I have done everything I can to actually make life easy for them whenever I could— Bt it was never an intentional help.. It always came from with in. And im sure their are many out their like me But sadly in less quantity.

2 days back I saw an old lady,approx 70-80 years old trying, so hard to cross the road. One by one, cars were zooming around her.I am sure a few angry comments would have been used by the people driving the cars but none of them stopped even for a second to let her cross. She was struggling between the cars feeling scarred of being knocked down by anyone. It could be seen by the body language how those cars zooming towards her were scarring her. She was literally moving back & forth to save herself from a knockdown. I just was getting angrier every minute I was watching her struggle from far. And then when finally I just couldn’t bare it I tried to come in the middle of those cars and did succeed,after one or two tries,in stopping the one’s which were coming her way of crossing & I was so happy about the fact that she safely crossed of course not realising that I did my bit to help her cross from a distance. Bt as I said these kind of feeling just don’t come with any motive of getting appreciated. Just doing your bit makes you feel HUMAN inside. Makes you feel good.

But where is Humanity heading —

Whats important is the fact that can’t one just wait for a second. Is everyone so busy & running that they can’t let an old person cross or can’t open the door for them. It was so ridiculous to see that people driving a Porsche or Lexus & who claim to be the classy category also dint have any mannerism to wait for 1 second-guess they have spent so much money behind those luxury cars that they just wanna keep zooming it.Cant once we press the brake for them & let them walk. Is this what Indian culture is becoming? Are these the mannerism passed to the NOW generation? Is this the way the NOW generation is gonna deal with the generation which has brought us up & actually made us capable of being what you are? It’s because of them & their hardcore struggle we have those cars to drive.If they dint pay for your education you would not be where you are & not be earning so much to drive them or be where you are.

Dont you see yourself some where down the line getting more or less to their age in some years? Are we not capable enough to hold some respect for them & help them in the age where most of them will be feeling so helpless?

I’m very ashamed & feel PITY for the people who are so busy running around that they are loosing their mannerism, culture & humanity. Just hope it doesnot go extinct.

God Bless & help such people who are loosing the HUMANITY !!!

************************

Today, I would like to dedicate this message in remembrance of those, from all over the World, who were killed in New York City, Pennsulvania and Washington D C. this day years ago.
Remembering that those who were saved are indeed…..

                                     SAFELY HOME

                         I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
                         Oh, so happy and so bright!
                         There is perfect joy and beauty
                         In this everlasting light.

                         All the pain and grief is over,
                         Every restless tossing passed;
                         I an now at peace forever,
                         Safely home in Heaven at last.

                         Did you wonder I so calmly
                         Trod the valley of the shade?
                         Oh! But Jesus love illumined
                         Every dark and fearful glade.

                         And He came Himself to meet me
                         In that way so hard to tread;
                         And with Jesus arm to lean on,
                         Could I have one doubt or dread?

                         Then you must not grieve so sorely,
                         For I love you dearly still:
                         Try to look beyond earths shadows,
                         Pray to trust our Fathers Will.

                          There is work still waiting for you,
                          So you must not idly stand;
                          Do it now, while life remaineth
                          You shall rest in Jesus land.

                          When that work is all completed,
                          He will gently call you Home;
                          Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
                          Oh, the joy to see you come!

 

ALWAYS LOOK ON THE INSIDE !!!

Roger Overweg Again —– http://rogeroverweg.com/2010/09/11/always-look-on-the-inside-2/

***************************
I remember reading a story once about a man who was exploring some caves by the seashore. In one of the caves he found a canvas bag with a bunch of hardened clay balls. It was like someone had rolled up some clay and left them out in the sun to bake. They didn’t look like much, but they intrigued the man so he took the bag out of the cave with him.
As he strolled along the beach, to pass the time, he would throw the clay balls one at a time out into the ocean as far as he could throw. He thought little about it until he dropped one of the balls and it cracked open on a rock. Inside was a beautiful, precious stone. Excited, the man started breaking open the remaining clay balls. Each contained a similar treasure. He found thousands of dollars worth of jewels in the 20 or so clay balls he had left, then it struck him.
He had been on the beach a long time. He had thrown maybe 50 or 60 of the clay balls with their hidden treasure into the ocean waves. Instead of thousands of dollars in treasure, he could have had tens of thousands, but he just threw it all away.
You know sometimes, it’s like that with people. We look at someone, maybe even ourselves, and we see the external clay vessel. It doesn’t look like much from the outside. It isn’t always beautiful or sparkling, so we discount it; we see that person as less important than someone more beautiful or stylish or well known or wealthy.
But we have not taken the time to find the treasure hidden inside that person. There is a treasure hidden in every one of us. We are wonderfully made. Not just our physical bodies, our spiritual selves, which are sometimes hidden from others by the *earthen vessel*
But if you take the time to get to know that person, and if you ask the Spirit to show you that person the way He sees them, then the clay begins to peel away and the brilliant gem begins to shine forth.
The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship.

My Walk With God…

Filed under: Sharing Blogs !!! — Trupti Shah @ 1:52 pm

A beautiful Poem

http://castilloavektimoun.wordpress.com/2009/07/23/my-walk-with-god/

********************

God asked me to take a walk with Him,
Our first in a very long time.
I asked Him if He could wait just a minute,
He frowned and said that was fine.

An hour flew right on by,
I told Him I’d be there when I can.
He looked at me and shook His head,
Then He grabbed me by the hand.

He told me He was patient,
And He would wait for me all day.
But I began to stop and wonder,
Is God waiting on ME okay?

I told Him about how life had been,
All the things I still had to do.
He told me – He knows everything,
Though my talks with Him are few.

He sat quietly and listened,
To all I had to say.
Then He reached His arms out to me,
Said He misses me each day.

So many of His children are
Consumed with the day to day.
We forget that God is waiting for us,
Letting little things get in the way.

He often hurts and bleeds real tears –
Misses us with all His heart.
He’s not asking for the entire day,
Simply to make Him feel apart.

I began to cry as I started my walk,
The walk back to my home.
No matter how busy I think I am,
I must make time for God and I -alone

 

NUDGE THE BALANCE !!!

Filed under: Sharing Blogs !!! — Trupti Shah @ 1:01 pm

This blog again is by Mr. Roger Overweg

http://rogeroverweg.com/2010/09/11/nudge-the-balance/

*********************************

A 91-year-old woman died after living a very long dignified life. When she met God, she asked Him something that had really bothered her for a very long time. “If Man was created in God’s image, and if all men are created equal, why do people treat each other so badly?”
 
God replied that each person who enters our life has a unique lesson to teach us. It is only through these lessons that we learn about life, people and our relationships with God. This confused the woman, so God began to explain:
 
“When someone lies to you, it teaches you that things are not always what they seem. The truth is often far beneath the surface. Look beyond the masks people wear if you want to know what is in their hearts. Remove your own masks to let people know who you really are.
 
When someone steals from you it teaches you that nothing is forever. Always appreciate what you have. You never know when you might lose it. Never take your friends or family for granted, because today and sometimes only this very moment is the only guarantee you may have.
 
When someone inflicts injury upon you, it teaches you that the human state is a very fragile one. Protect and take care of your body as best as you can, it’s the one thing that you are sure to have forever.
 
When someone mocks you, it teaches you that no two people are alike. When you encounter people who are different from you, do not judge them by how they look or act, instead base it on the contents of what is in their hearts.
 
When someone breaks your heart, it teaches you that loving someone does not always mean that the person will love you back. But don’t turn your back on love, because when you find the right person, the joy that one person brings you will make up for all of your past hurts. Times a thousand fold.
 
When someone holds a grudge against you, it teaches you that everyone makes mistakes. When you are wronged, the most virtuous thing you can do is forgive the offender without pretense. Forgiving those who have hurt us is often the most difficult and painful of life’s experiences, but it is also the most courageous thing a person can do.
 
When a loved one is unfaithful to you, it teaches you that resisting temptation is Man’s greatest challenge. Be vigilant in your resistance against all temptations. By doing so, you will be rewarded with an enduring sense of satisfaction far greater than the temporary pleasure by which you were tempted.
 
When someone cheats you, it teaches you that greed is the root of all evil. Aspire to make your dreams come true, no matter how lofty they may be. Do not feel guilty about your success, but never let an obsession with achieving your goals lead you to engage in malevolent activities.
 
When someone ridicules you, it teaches you that nobody is perfect. Accept people for their merits and be tolerant of their flaws. Do not ever reject someone for imperfections over which they have no control.”
 
Upon hearing the Lord’s wisdom, the old woman became concerned that there are no lessons to be learned from man’s good deeds. God replied that Man’s capacity to love is the greatest gift He has. At the root of kindness and love, and each act of love also teaches us a lesson. The woman’s curiosity deepened. God, once again began to explain:
 
“When someone loves us, it teaches us love, kindness, charity, honesty, humility, forgiveness, acceptance, and all of these can counteract all the evil in the world. For every good deed, there is one evil deed. Man alone has the power to control the balance between good and evil, but because the lessons of love are not taught often enough, the power is too often abused.
 
When you enter someone’s life, whether by plan, chance or coincidence, consider what your lesson will be. Will you teach love or a harsh lesson of reality? When you die, will your life have resulted in more loving or more hurting? More comfort or more pain? More joy or more sadness? Each one of us has the power over the balance of the love in the world. Use it wisely!”
 
Don’t miss an opportunity to nudge the world’s scale in the right direction!

ROSES AND THORNS !!!

Filed under: Sharing Blogs !!! — Trupti Shah @ 12:37 pm

While surfing through some intresting Blog’s.. I found this wonderful article. So i just thought of sharing it with everyone..The original article is from My Roger Overweg. It makes a lot of sense.. Hope u too enjoy it the way I did 🙂

http://rogeroverweg.com/2010/09/11/roses-and-thorns-2/

*******************************
 
A certain man planted a rose and watered it faithfully, and before it blossomed, he examined it.  He saw the bud that would soon blossom and also the thorns.  And he thought, “How can any beautiful flower come from a plant burdened with so many sharp thorns?” Saddened by this thought, he neglected to water the rose, and before it was ready to bloom, it died.
 
So it is with many people.  Within every soul there is a rose.  The God-like qualities planted in us at birth grow amid the thorns of our faults.  Many of us look at ourselves and see only the thorns, the defects.  We despair, thinking that nothing good can possibly come from us.  We neglect to water the good within us, and eventually it dies.  We never realize our potential.
 
Some people do not see the rose within themselves; someone else must show it to them.
 
One of the greatest gifts a person can possess is to be able to reach past the thorns and find the rose within others.  This is the characteristic of love, to look at a person, and knowing his faults, recognize the nobility in his soul, and help him realize that he can overcome his faults.  If we show him the rose, he will conquer the thorns.
 
Our duty in this world is to help others by showing them their roses and not their thorns.  Only then can we achieve the love we should feel for each other; only then can we bloom in our own garden.
