Think - About it
Think - About it

Today before you think of saying an unkind word
Think of someone who can't speak

Before you complain about the taste of your food
Think of someone who has nothing to eat

Before you complain about your husband or wife
Think of someone who's crying out to God for a companion

Today before you complain about life
Think of someone who died too early

Before you complain about your children
Think of someone who desires children but they're barren

Before you argue about your dirty house; someone didn't clean or sweep
Think of the people who are living in the streets

Before whining about the distance you drive
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet

And when you are tired and complain about your job
Think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another
Remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down
Put a smile on your face and thank God you're alive and still around

A Long Time Ago in China
Something I received in my email a long time ago.


A long time ago in China.
A long time ago in China, a girl named Li-Li got married and went to live with her husband and mother-in-law. In a very short time, Li-Li found that she couldn't get along with her mother-in-law at all. Their personalities were very different, and Li-Li was angered by many of her mother-in-law's habits. In addition, she criticized Li-Li constantly.

Days passed, and weeks passed. Li-Li and her mother-in-law never stopped arguing and fighting. But what made the situation even worse was that, according to ancient Chinese tradition, Li-Li had to bow to her mother-in-law and obey her every wish. All the anger and unhappiness in the house was causing Li-Li's poor husband great distress.

Finally, Li-Li could not stand her mother-in-law's bad temper and dictatorship any longer, and she decided to do somethingabout it. Li-Li went to see her father's good friend, Mr. Huang, who sold herbs. She told him the situation and asked if he would give her some poison so that she could solve the problem once and for all.
Mr. Huang thought for a while, and finally said, "Li-Li, I will help you solve your problem, but you must listen to me and obeywhat I tell you."
Li-Li said, "Yes, Mr. Huang, I will do whatever you tell me to do."

Mr. Huang went into the back room, and returned in a few minutes with a package of herbs. He told Li-Li, "You can't use aquick-acting poison to get rid of your mother-in-law, because that would cause people to become suspicious. Therefore, I have given you a number of herbs that will slowly build up poison in her body. Every other day prepare some delicious meal and put a little of these herbs in her serving. Now, in order to make sure that nobody suspects you when she dies, you must be very careful to act very friendly towards her. Don't argue with her, obey her every wish, and treat her like a queen." Li-Li was so happy. She thanked Mr. Huang and hurried home to start her plot of murdering her mother-in-law.

Weeks went by, and months went by, and every other day,Li-Li served the specially treated food to her mother-in-law. She remembered what Mr. Huang had said about avoiding suspicion, so she controlled her temper, obeyed her mother-in-law, and treated her like her own mother. After six months had passed, the whole household had changed. Li-Li had practiced controlling her temper so much that she found that she almost never got mad or upset.
She hadn't had an argument with her mother-in-law in sixmonths because she now seemed much kinder and easier to get along with. The mother-in-law's attitude toward Li-Li changed, and she began to love Li-Li like her own daughter. She kept telling friends and relatives that Li-Li was the best daughter-in-law one could ever find. Li-Li and her mother-in-law were now treating each other like a real mother and daughter. Li-Li's husband was very happy to see what was happening.

One day, Li-Li came to see Mr. Huang and asked for his help again. She said, "Dear Mr. Huang, please help me to keep the poison from killing my mother-in-law! She's changed into such a nice woman, and I love her like my own mother. I do not want her to die because of the poison I gave her."
Mr. Huang smiled and nodded his head. "Li-Li, there's nothing to worry about. I never gave you any poison. The herbs I gave you were vitamins to improve her health. The only poison was in your mind and your attitude toward her, but that has been all washed away by the love which you gave to her."

MORAL: Have you ever realized that how you treat others is exactly how they will treat you? There is a wise saying: 'The person who loves others will also be loved in return.' or ...the environment is a reflection of ourselves.

Back after a Month
Wow.. without realising it's been a month since I have last updated my blog. When I started blogging I told myself that I will constantly update my blog every second day but guess it was never as easy as that. For all of you who has sent emails asking me where I have gone missing and for those of you who actually took the liberty to remind me its been a month since I have last blogged...thanks. Sorry I did not have much time in hand to actually reply all of your emails or sms

Anyway for those of you who actually wondered what happen to me .. I am fine but just too many things were going on at the same time that needed my attention." Work, inter-department games, studies, family responsibilites, personal responsibilities and etc etc etc... just too many things.. It has been a really hectic & stressful month. I have been going through some emotional rollercoster rides for the past month.. Thinking about it makes me wonder; WOW I actually manage to pull thorough it.. This makes me realise that Waheguru has his own way of doing things. I a mere mortal did not understand his ways of doing things but now looking back, I would say,, GURU MAYRAI SANG SAADA HAI NAALAY..

He was/is and will always be there for me (though I might not have realised that at those moment but he guided me in every way). He has given me really awesome parents & friends who were there during my up or downs for the past month. They have been the support for me all this while. Especially my friends; though I am away from my family in this big big city; you people have never once make me feel that I am alone here. Without your help and also moral support things will not be easy for me. This is all the blessings of guruji. Without HIM I would have never meet such wonderful people in my life.

I had a break only last week where I was back in my hometown and I had a really good time back there (though it was a very short visit). Work does not permit me to go back as often as I do like before. Had a thanks giving prayers on Saturday to thank guruji for everything that he has provided and also for the promotion in work he gave me. Took some pictures of the sangat in Miri and hopefully I will be uploading it soon.

Hopefully I will be blogging more often now.. Leaving you all with something to ponder on

"I have learnt that we do not need to ask anything from guruji. All what we need to do is to listen and practise guruji's teachings. Once you are on the guru's path, you will not need to ask anything from HIM. Everything will start falling back into its own place slowly. All you need is to just take the first step towards him and he will guide you through. Never doubt guruji's doing as he is the doer and we are just his followers."

ਊਚ ਅਪਾਰ ਬੇਅੰਤ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਕਉਣੁ ਜਾਣੈ ਗੁਣ ਤੇਰੇ
ooch apaar baea(n)th suaamee koun jaanai gun thaerae
O my lofty, incomparable and infinite Lord and Master, who can know Your Glorious Virtues?
