This one worth sharing is again from dear brother Chesstyrant's  mail !Smile 



God: -----            What are you so busy with? Ants are busy, too.

   I, Me, Myself (IMM): ----- Don’t know. But I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic. It’s rush hour all the time.   

     G: ----                      Sure. Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you    results. Activity   consumes time. Productivity frees it.

IMM: -----            Tell me, why has life become so complicated?

G: -----                 Stop analyzing life. Just live it. Analyzing it is what makes it complicated.

IMM: ----              Why are we then constantly unhappy?

G: ----                    Your today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday. You are worrying because the act of worrying has become a habit. That’s why you are not happy.

IMM: ----                 But how can we not worry when there is so much uncertainty?

G: ----                     Uncertainty is inevitable, but worrying is optional.

IMM: ----                But then there is so much pain due to uncertainty.

G: ----                      Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.

IMM: -----               If suffering is optional, why do good people always suffer?

G: ----                     Diamonds cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials. With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.

IMM: ----                 You mean to say such experience is useful?

G: ----                      Yes. Experience is a hard teacher; though she gives the test first & the lessons afterwards.

IMM: -----                But still, why should we go through such tests? Why can’t we be from problems?

G: ----                   Problems are Purposeful Roadblocks Offering Beneficial Lessons to Enhance Mental Strength. Inner strength comes from struggle & endurance, not when you are free from problems.

IMM: ----                 Frankly, in the midst of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading.

G: ----                     If you look outside, you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Looking outside, you dream. Looking inside, you awaken. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides insight.

IMM: ----                Sometimes not succeeding fast seems to hurt more than moving in the right direction.

G: ----                     Success is relative, quantified by others. Satisfaction is absolute, quantified by you. Knowing the road ahead is more satisfying than you rode ahead.

IMM: ----                Sometimes I ask, who am I, why am I here? I don’t know the answers.

G: -----                    Seek not to find who you are, but to determine who you want to be. Stop looking for a purpose as to why you are here. Create it. Life is not a discovery but a process of creation.

IMM: ----                  How can I get the best out of life?

G: ----                       Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

IMM: ---                    Sometimes my prayers are not answered.

G: ---                        There are no unanswered prayers. At times the answer is NO.

IMM: ----                 Thank you for this wonderful advice. I’ll try to be less fearful.

G: ----                      Keep the faith & drop the fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.
