A very touching story

On the last day before Christmas, I hurried to go to the supermarket to
buy the remaining of the gift I didn't manage to buy earlier.

When I saw all the people there, I started to complain tomyself,"It is
going to take forever here and I still have so many other places to go.
Christmas really is getting more and more annoying every year.How I
wish I could just lie down, go to sleep and only wake up after it..."
Nonetheless, I made my way to the toy section, and there I started to
curse the prices, wondering if after all kids really playwith such expensive
toys.

While looking in the toy section, I noticed a small boy of about 5
years old, pressing a doll against his chest. He kept on touching the hair of the doll and looked so sad. I wondered who was this doll for. Then the
little boy turned to the old woman next to him, "Granny, are you sure I don't have enough money?"

The old lady replied, "You know that you don't have enough money to buy
this doll, my dear."

Then she asked him to stay here for 5 minutes while she went to look
around. She left quickly. The little boy was still holding the doll in
his hand.

Finally, I started to walk toward him and I asked him who did he want
to give this doll to. "It is the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so much for this Christmas. She was so sure that Santa Claus would bring it to her."


I replied to him that may be Santa Claus will bring it to her, after
all, and not to worry. But he replied to me sadly. "No, Santa Claus can not bring it to her where she is now. I have to give the doll to my mother so that she can give it to her when she goes there."His eyes were so sad while saying this. "My sister has gone to be with God. Daddy says that Mummy will also go to see God very soon, so I thought that she could bring the doll with her to give it to my sister."

My heart nearly stopped. The little boy looked up at me and said, "I
told daddy to tell mummy not to go yet. I asked him to wait until I come
back from the supermarket."
Then he showed me a very nice photo of him where he was laughing. He
then told me, "I also want mummy to take this photo with her so that she
will not forget me." I love my mummy and I wish she doesn't have to leave me but daddy says that she has to go to be with
my little sister."


Then he looked again at the doll with sad eyes, very quietly.I quickly
reached for my wallet and took a few notes and said to the boy, "What
if we checked again, just in case if you have enough money?"

"Ok," he said. "I hope that I have enough."

I added some of my money to his without him seeing and we started to
count it. There was enough for the doll, and even some spare money.
The little boy said, "Thank you God for giving me enough money."
Then he looked at me and added, "I asked yesterday before I slept for
God to make sure I have enough money to buy this doll so that mummy can
give it to my sister. He heard me." "I also wanted to have enough money to buy a white rose for my mummy, but I didn't dare to ask God too much. But He
gave me enough to buy the doll and the white rose."

"You know, my mummy loves white rose."

A few minutes later, the old lady came again and I left with my
trolley. I finished my shopping in a totally
different state from when I started. I couldn't get the little boy out
of my mind.

Continue reading here : Then I remembered a local newspaper article 2 days ago, which mentioned
of a drunk man in a truck who hit a car where there was one young lady and
a little girl. The little girl died right away, and the mother was left
in a critical state. The family had to decide whether to pull the plug on
the life-assisting machine, because the young lady would not be able to get
out of the coma.

Was this the family of the little boy?

Two days after this encounter with the little boy, I read in the newspaper
that the young lady had passed away.I couldn't stop myself and went to
buy a bunch of white roses and I went to the mortuary where the body of the young woman was exposed for people to see and make last wish before burial.


She was there, in her coffin, holding a beautiful white rosein her hand
with the photo of the little boy and the doll placed over her chest.
I left the place crying, feeling that my life had been changed forever.
The love that this little boy had for his mother and his sister is still,
to that day, hard to imagine. And in a fraction of a second, a drunk man
had taken all this away from him.


Love always

Love is all around you ..from the dew drop to the bright night stars
Take a moment to pay attention to it everyday and make that moment
wider and wider .
When a reverse flow comes to you see the positive side of it
Cultivate silence within ..it will allow you to have a fresh new look on the world.
Meditate from Love and compassion and you 'll understand the times.
When things get complicated and puzzling know you are in your mind
Let go ..a litle and then a lot ..
You 'll find peace within ..
It 's simple for Love is who we are. We are all ONE.

Quote:
It's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one."

- Bill Hicks
Love always

Touching Story About Lucky The Dog

Mary and her husband Jim had a dog named 'Lucky.' Lucky was a real
character. Whenever Mary and Jim had company come for a weekend visit
they would warn their friends to not leave their luggage open because
Lucky would help himself to whatever struck his fancy. Inevitably,
someone would forget and something would come up missing.

Mary or Jim would go to Lucky's toy box in the basement and there the
treasure would be, amid all of Lucky's other favorite toys. Lucky always
stashed his finds in his toy box and he was very particular that his toys
stay in the box.

It happened that Mary found out she had breast cancer. Something told her
she was going to die of this disease....in fact, she was just sure it
was fatal.

She scheduled the double mastectomy, fear riding her shoulders. The night
before she was to go to the hospital she cuddled with Lucky. A thought
struck her....what would happen to Lucky? Although the three-year-old
dog liked Jim, he was Mary's dog through and through. If I die, Lucky
will be abandoned, Mary thought. He won't understand that I didn't want
to leave him. The thought made her sadder than thinking of her own
death.

The double mastectomy was harder on Mary than her doctors had anticipated
and Mary was hospitalized for over two weeks. Jim took Lucky for his
evening walk faithfully, but the little dog just drooped, whining and
miserable.

Finally the day came for Mary to leave the hospital. When she arrived
home, Mary was so exhausted she couldn't even make it up the steps to her
bedroom. Jim made his wife comfortable on the couch and left her to nap.
Lucky stood watching Mary but he didn't come to her when she called. It
made Mary sad but sleep soon overcame her and she dozed.

When Mary woke for a second she couldn't understand what was wrong. She
couldn't move her head and her body felt heavy and hot. But panic soon
gave way to laughter when Mary realized the problem. She was covered,
literally blanketed, with every treasure Lucky owned! While she had
slept, the sorrowing dog had made trip after trip to the basement
bringing his beloved mistress all his favorite things in life. He had
covered her with his love.

Mary forgot about dying. Instead she and Lucky began living again,
walking further and further together every day. It's been 12 years now
and Mary is still cancer-free. Lucky? He still steals treasures and
stashes them in his toy box but Mary remains his greatest treasure.

Remember . . . live every day to the fullest. Each minute is a blessing
from God. And never forget . .. . the people who make a difference in our
lives are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the
most awards. They are the ones that care for us.

If you see someone without a smile today give them one of yours! Live
simply. Love seriously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

Love always
mudra

Isn't it just incredible
when we see that which is indelible
amidst rust, decay and rot
that which is rather than not.

I guess what I am trying to say is that our eyes are just one of the gateways to perception. Because vision has such an immediate impact on us it tends to control our thought, behavior and indeed, the way we treat each other. Then comes sound and with that smell and touch.
We are primarily conditioned to see the obvious and then immediately take it for granted. If it looks good we will touch it, smell it and perhaps even hold onto it for a while, our tactile senses enjoying the moment. The second time we see it we are not so impressed but may smile at the memory of the first encounter and how special that was.
So it is with us, transient beings in a flickering existence of the now. Taking to us that which has immediate impact and leaving to the side that with which we have become familiar or indeed, that which we just choose to see as not becoming, or worth our effort.
Looking into thisa even more, I realise that I have grown. I would have not taken the time to see the unique way a rust spot formed a pattern on an otherwise perfect piece of metal, painted and polished to it's finest lustre. So it is with those around me. There was a time when I would have given more time to them whom "fitted the mould". That mould being the essence of what is drummed into us by glossy magazines, multi-million dollar adverts and the like.
The conditioning nearly took, the manipulation nearly won but thanks to energies beyond my control, and a willingness to admit that I was just a small infinitesimally small part of this whole canvas we call life, I was able to begin my real journey.
The cry of the child , the call of the beggar, the urgent sound of the ambulance siren....all these and more bring a prayer to my lips rather than a torrent of invective which is of no good to anything that IS.
What has brought this change about? Why can I go through a "subway" of "life" without the props, the drinks bar and the check-in clerk to feel the vibrations that surround me? Why is it that these days, I do not hear the sounds previously mentioned, but rather feel the vibrations of the root cause of that sound. Why is it that when I go amongst my fellow travelers at this time I feel first the vibrations of their essence and then later see the package which that essence in-dwells.
These are strange times indeed, and they can be good times even amidst the insanity that prevails, for we are all part of this insanity and we are all, together, looking to escape this insanity. Together we are finding that we are not all so different after all. The all has become the one, the one is the all. Beingness is the reality of the fragmentation which would separate us into splinter groups.
The arguments rage back and forth about "one-ness" and "the collective". There would be no collective without each "one". There would be no "one" without the collective.
The beautiful tapestry is a mass of millions of carefully crafted knots, woven together to form the One. The One is a beautiful fullness of creation come to being through the bonding of the many.
That is what we are, the bonding of the many woven together as one.

Much Love and Light to ALL

There's lots of talk about "be the change you want to see". These people make it happen.
