A Beautiful Morning Story To Learn From !!

Bhagavat Geeta is very huge. So why we read the Bhagavat Geeta, even if we can't understand it? Here is a story that tells you why :

An old farmer lived on a farm in the mountains with his young grandson. Each morning, Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Bhagavat Geeta.

His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could.

One day the grandson asked, "Grandpa! I try to read the Bhagawat Geeta just like you but I don't understand it, and what I do understand, I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Bhagawat Geeta do?"

The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied, "Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water."

The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house.

The grandfather laughed and said, "You'll have to move a little faster next time," and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again.

This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before here turned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead.

The old man said, "I don't want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You're just not trying hard enough," and he went out the door to watch the boy try again.

At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty.

Out of breath, he said, "SEE.... it is useless!"

"So you think it is useless?" The old man said, "Look at the basket."

The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out.

"Son, that's what happens when you read the Bhagavat Geeta. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out. That is the work of GOD in our lives."

This is beautiful story - Can't say when it might inspire one.

Motivating Morning Poem !!

Dreams are a big part of our Lives
and You must do whatever it takes
to make them a Reality;
by the plans you make,
the course you take,
and the things you do.

Don't dwell on past mistakes.
Leave yesterday behind,
along with all it's problems,
worries and doubts.

Realize you can't change the past,
but you can start a new tomorrow.
Don't try to do everything at once;
take one step at a time,

Don't ever be afraid to try the Impossible
no matter what others may think.
Remember you are Unique
in your own special way.

Don't ever stop Dreaming!
Don't ever stop wanting what's right for you!

GOD smiles from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, 
it's just a bend, not the end !

the tongue works faster than the mind.

You can’t change the past,
but you can ruin the present
by worrying over the future.

God always gives His best to those
who leave the choice with Him.

All people smile in the same language.

A hug is a great gift… 
one size fits all.
It can be given for any occasion
and it’s easy to exchange.

Everyone needs to be loved…
especially when they do not deserve it.

The real measure of a man’s wealth
is what he has invested in eternity.
