DALAI LAMA'S MESSAGE

Instructions for Life in the new millennium from the Dalai Lama:
 
1)Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
2)When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
3)Follow the three R's: (a) Respect for self; (b) Respect for others and, 
c)Responsibility for all your actions.
4)Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
5)Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
6)Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
7)When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
8)Spend some time alone every day.
9)Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.
10)Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
11)Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll be 
able to enjoy it a second time.
12)A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
13) In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. 
Don't bring up the past.

17)Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other 
exceeds your need for each other.

18.Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it. 

Three (3) lessons to make you think about the way we treat people.

Lessons

1 - First Important Lesson - Cleaning Lady.  

During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions until I read the last one:

"What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"

Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name?

I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade.  

"Absolutely," said the professor. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They

deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say "hello."  

I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.  

2. - Second Important Lesson - Pickup in the Rain  

One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rainstorm. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. Soaking wet, she decided to flag d own th e next car. A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of in those conflict-filled 60s. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her into a taxicab.  

She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his address and thanked him. Seven days went by and a knock came on the man's door. To his surprise, a giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A special note was attached..  

It read:

"Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes, but also my spirits. Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband's bedside just before he passed away... God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others."  

Sincerely, Mrs. Nat King Cole.  

3 - Third Important Lesson - Always remember those who serve.  

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10-year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.  

"How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked.  

"Fifty cents," replied the waitress.  

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied the coins in it.  

"Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired.  

By now more people were waiting for a table and the waitress was growing impatient.  

"Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied.  

The little boy again counted his coins.  

"I'll have the plain ice cream," he said.  

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and left. When the waitress came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the table. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were two nickels and five pennies..  

You see, he couldn't have the sundae, because he had to have enough left to leave her a tip.

Christian One Liners

Don't let your worries get the best of you;  remember, Moses started out as a basket case.

Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited until you try to sit in their pews.

Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisors.

It is easier to preach ten sermons than it is to live one.

The good Lord didn't create anything without a purpose, but mosquitoes come close.

When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there.

People are funny;  they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road, and the back of the church.

Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front door forever.

Quit griping about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn't belong.

If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has.

God Himself does not propose to judge a man until he is dead.  So why should you?

Some minds are like concrete thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.

Peace starts with a smile.

A lot of church members who are singing "Standing on the Promises" are just! sitting on the premises.

We were called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.

Be ye fishers of men.  You catch them - He'll clean them.

Don't put a question mark where God put a period.

Forbidden fruits create many jams.

God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called.

God grades on the cross, not the curve.

God loves everyone, but probably prefers  "fruits of the spirit" over "religious nuts!"

God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

He who angers you, controls you!

If God is your Co-pilot - swap seats!

Prayer:   Don't give God instructions -- just report for duty!

The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us.

The Will of God never takes you to where the Grace of God will not protect you.

We don't change the message, the message changes us.

You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to..........discourage him.

The best mathematical equation I have ever seen: 1 cross + 3 nails= 4 given.

Essay From a Columbine Student

 
"The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but shorter 
tempers;  wider freeways, 
but narrower viewpoints; we spend more, but have less; 
we buy more, but enjoy it less. 
we have bigger houses and smaller families;
more convenience, but less time; 
we have more degrees, but less sense; 
more knowledge, but less judgment; 
more experts, but more problems; 
more medicine, but less wellness. 
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. 
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. 
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life;
we've added years to life, not life to years. 
We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the 
street to meet the new neighbor. 
We've conquered outer space, but not inner space; 
we've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul; 
we've spilt the atom, but not our  prejudice. 
We have higher incomes, but lower morals; 
we've become long on  quantity, but short on quality. 
These are the times of tall men and short  character; 
steep profits, and shallow relationships. 
These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare;
more leisure, but less fun; 
more kinds of food, but less nutrition. 
These are the days of two incomes, but more divorce; 
of fancier houses, but broken homes. 
It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the stockroom.

Lord, thank You for loyal, loving friends
Who are there in winter or springtime fair.
New acquaintances are easy to come by,
But true friendship is extremely rare.

A friend always sees the best in you,
Although they've known you at your worst.
They laugh with you in the good times,
When storms threaten, they'll be there first.

They'll offer a shoulder to rest your head
When tears are welling in your eyes.
Take a walk down friendship's path with you
And help chase away those stormy skies.

Lord, thank You for all the gifts You give;
Each one makes our life seem more worthwhile.
But one of the finest gifts you've given us
Is the warmth of friendship's loving smile.

I asked God

I asked God to take away my habit.
God said, No.
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No.
His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary 

I asked God to grant me patience.


God said, No.Patience is a byproduct of tribulations;
it isn't granted, it is learned.

I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No.I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you.
I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, No.Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No.You must grow on your own! ,
but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No.
I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.

I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
God said...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.                                                

THe DAY IS YOURS DON'T THROW IT AWAY                     May God Bless You,  

Beethoven Symphonies

A tourist in Vienna is going through a graveyard and all of a sudden he hears some music. No one is around, so he starts searching for the source.
 
  He finally locates the origin and finds it is coming from a grave with a headstone that reads: Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770-1827. Then he realizes that the music is the Ninth Symphony and it is being played backward! Puzzled, He leaves the graveyard and persuades a friend to return with him.
 
  By the time they arrive back at the grave, the music has changed. This time it is the Seventh Symphony, but like the previous piece, it is being played backward.
 
 Curious, the men agree to consult a music scholar. When they return with the expert, the Fifth Symphony is playing, again backward. The expert notices that the symphonies are being played in the reverse order in which they were composed, the 9th, then the 7th, then the 5th.
 
 By the next day the word has spread and a throng has gathered around
 the grave. They are all listening to the Second Symphony being played
 backward.
 
 Just then the graveyard's caretaker ambles up to the group.
 Someone in the crowd asks him if he has an explanation for the music.
 
 "Oh, it's nothing to worry about" says the caretaker.
  "He's just decomposing!"

Life explained……..

On the first day God created the dog. God said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of twenty years."  

The dog said, "That's too long to be barking. Give me ten years and I'll give you back the other ten." So God agreed. 

On the second day God created the monkey. God said, "Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh. I'll give you a twenty-year life span." 

The monkey said, "How boring, monkey tricks for twenty years? I don't think so. Dog gave you back ten, so that's what I'll do too, okay?" And God agreed. 

On the third day God created the cow. God said, "You must go to the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer. I will give you a life span of sixty years." 

The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty and I'll give back the other forty." And God agreed again. 

On the forth day God created man. God said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. I'll give you twenty years."

Man said, "What? Only twenty years! Tell you what, I'll take my twenty, and the forty the cow gave back and the ten the monkey gave back and the ten the dog gave back, that makes eighty, okay?"

"Okay," said God, "You've got a deal." 

So that is why the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play, and enjoy ourselves; for the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family; for the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren; and for next ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.

Why Worry?

There are only two things in life to worry about:  

Whether you are well
or whether you are sick.

If you are well,  

then there is nothing to worry about.

But if you are sick,  

there are only two things to worry about:

Whether you are going to get well or whether you are going to die.

If you get well,  

then there is nothing to worry about.

But if you die,  

there are only two things to worry about:

Whether you are going to go to heaven
or whether you are going to go to hell.

If you go to heaven,  

then you have nothing to worry about.

But if you go to hell,  

you'll be so busy shaking hands with all your friends,  

that you won't have time to worry!

So, Why Worry?

Be Happy

ALZHEIMERS' EYE TEST  

Count every "  F " in the following text:

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTI
FIC STUDY COMBINED WITH
THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS...   

 (SEE BELOW)

HOW MANY ?

WRONG, THERE ARE 6   -- no joke.
READ IT AGAIN !
Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 F's before you scroll down.  

The reasoning behind is further down.

The brain cannot process "OF".                        


Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!



Anyone who counts all 6 "F's" on the first go is a genius.
                     
 
                     
Three is normal, four is quite rare.

The Holy Alphabet

Although things are not perfect
 Because of trial or pain
 Continue in thanksgiving
 Do not begin to blame
 Even when the times are hard
 Fierce winds are bound to blow
 God is forever able
 Hold on to what you know
 Imagine life without His love
 Joy would cease to be
 Keep thanking Him for all the things
 Love imparts to thee
 Move out of "Camp Complaining"
 No weapon that is known
 On earth can yield the power
 Praise can do alone
 Quit looking at the future
 Redeem the time at hand
 Start every day with worship
 To "thank" is a command
 Until we see Him coming
 Victorious in the sky
 We'll run the race with gratitude
 Xalting God most high
 Yes, there'll be good times and yes some will be bad, but...
 Zion waits in glory...where none are ever sad!

Amazing brain

This is an example of an amazing illusion!!!  

The last sentence is so true.

  If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, you will only see one color, pink.

However. if you stare at the black "+" in the center,
 the moving dot turns to green.
 
 Now, concentrate on the black
"+" in the center of the picture.
 
After a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see a green dot rotating.
 
 It's amazing how our brain works. There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don't disappear. This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think we see.

What does Love mean?

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, "What does love mean?" The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:  

"When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love." Rebecca- age 8 When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth." Billy - age 4  

"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other." Karl - age 5  

"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs." Chrissy - age 6  

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired." Terri - age 4  

"Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK." Danny - age 7  

"Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss" Emily - age 8  

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen." Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)  

"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate." Nikka - age 6 (we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)  

"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday." Noelle - age 7  

"Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well." Tommy - age 6  

"During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling.He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore." Cindy - age 8  

"My mommy loves me more than anybody . You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night." Clare - age 6 "Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken." Elaine-age 5  

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford." Chris - age 7

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day." Mary Ann - age 4  

"I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones." Lauren - age 4  

"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you." (what an image) Karen - age 7  

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross." Mark - age 6  

"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget." Jessica - age 8

Advice of  Bill Gates

To anyone with kids of any age, here's some advice. Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world. Puts a bit of reality back in life as a general rule. 

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it! 

Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself. 

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both. 

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. 

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them. 

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your  clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room. 

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life. 

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time. 

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. 

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

The Disciplining

A couple had two little boys, ages 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous. They were always getting into trouble and their parents knew that if any mischief occurred in their town, their sons were probably involved.  

The boys' mother heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The clergyman agreed, but asked to see them individually.  

So the mother sent her 8-year-old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the clergyman in the afternoon.  

The clergyman, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, "Where is God?"

The boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there with his mouth hanging open, wide-eyed.  

So the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone, Where is God?"

Again the boy made no attempt to answer. So the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bellowed, "WHERE IS GOD!?"  

The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him.

When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "What happened?"  

The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in BIG trouble this time, dude... God is missing--and they think WE did it!"
