Donkey in the well – story

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over & help him. They all grabbed a dirt & began to shovel dirt into the well.

At first, the donkey didn’t realized what was happening & cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel ­of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing.He would shake it off & take a step up. As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off & take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well & happily trotted off.

Always Remember in Life that:

Life is going to throw dirt on you. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off & take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up..But by taking a step up. In this world people will always throw stones in the path of your success, It depends on you..what You make from them a wall or a bridge.

Kyle

This is not a true story but the message still relevant, With one small gesture you can change a person’s life.

 

One day, when I was a freshman in high school,  I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school.  His name was Kyle.  It looked like he was carrying all of his books. I thought to myself, “Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday?  He must really be a nerd.”  I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him.  They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt. His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him.

He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye. As I handed him his glasses, I said, “Those guys are jerks. ”  They really should get lives.  ” He looked at me and said, “Hey thanks!”  There was a big smile on his face.  It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude.  I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he lived.  As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never seen him before.  He said he had gone to private school before now.  I would have never hung out with a private school kid before.  We talked all the way home, and I carried some of his books.  He turned out to be a pretty cool kid.

I asked him if he wanted to play a little football with my friends  He said yes.  We hung out all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him, and my friends thought the same of him. Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again.  I stopped him and said, “Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday!  ” He just laughed and handed me half the books.  Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends.

When we were seniors we began to think about college.  Kyle decided on Georgetown and I was going to Duke.  I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem.  He was going to be a doctor and I was going for business on a football scholarship.  Kyle was valedictorian of our class.  I teased him all the time about being a nerd.  He had to prepare a speech for graduation.  I was so glad it wasn’t me having to get up there and speak  Graduation day, I saw Kyle.  He looked great. He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school.  He filled out and actually looked good in glasses.  He had more dates than I had and all the girls loved him.  Boy, sometimes I was jealous! Today was one of those days.

I could see that he was nervous about his speech.  So, I smacked him on the back and said, “Hey, big guy, you’ll be great!”  He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled.  ” Thanks,” he said.  As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began “Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years.  Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach…but mostly your friends…

I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them.

I am going to tell you a story.” I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told the story of the first day we met.  He had planned to kill himself over the weekend.  He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn’t have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home.  He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile.  “Thankfully, I was saved.  My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable.”  I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment.  I saw his Mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile.  Not until that moment did I realize it’s depth.  Never underestimate the power of your actions.  With one small gesture you can change a person’s life.

For better or for worse.

Fear

prison

Fear only exists in the mind. Fear is nothing more than an emotional response to our natural desire to avoid discomfort.
It is ONLY a response to an IMAGINED outcome. Many people get used to letting fear lead them through life.
They avoid anything they do not want to face, they cower away from conflict. But then fear becomes something else. They become walls that box us in
and block alternatives, they get stuck on the one path.

Then we stop recognizing fear and they become reasons on why we can’t. “I can’t , it’s too hard” Bullshit!

Fear gives you an indication you are venturing into the realm of the unfamiliar. It gives you an indication you are on the edge of your ASSUMED limits. You need to bust through these so called “limits”.

Remember everyone feels fear, The only difference in how it affects you is the way you handle it. Let fear push you forward instead of holding you back.

Be epic.

Life inspirational Image – Challenge yourself

Chalenge yourself

Challenge yourself to be who you know you are capable of being.
Challenge yourself to follow through.

To live what you preach, to walk your talk.

Don’t worry about how slowly you feel you’re heading toward your goals

As long as you keep doing your thing,
you’re still cruising far ahead of everyone who’s too scared to even try.

Realize you are now dead. Keep moving on. Don’t look back. Do not fear.

We Are Already Dead
Paul Bahder, MD

http://www.homeopathyusa.com/

In Tibet during funeral ceremonies the monks recite verses from the Tibetan Book of the Dead and keep reassuring the person that passed on saying, “You are now dead. Keep moving on and don’t look back. Realization of this truth is your awakening into reality.” While traditionally this book is read to a dying person, in the spiritual circles it is used as a guide for the living. Spiritual adepts look at the book’s instruction as manual for transition of consciousness from the life in time and space, our physical sense of life, to the spiritual realm of the eternal.

What we call “our life” is really the experience that takes place in time and space. The ever-changing character of our physical experience has led the Buddha to formulate the Law of Impermanence and Jesus to say, “My kingdom is not of this world.” The underlying commonality between these pointers to truth is the realization that the physical experience of being alive is temporary, changing and in a deeper way not the ground reality of what is. It is the realization that behind this world of appearances there exists a realm, a context that is changeless, not limited by time or space.

When we are fixated and bound by the impermanent flow of experience we are in fact unaware of the changeless context of consciousness. The relentless passing of what we see, hear, taste, touch, smell, of what we imagine or think means that we are already possessed by time and dead to the timeless. It means that time, the condition of passing on and ending everything without an exception is really the realm of death – the end of what we know.

We are in fact already dead and it is only our unresolved issues that keep us attached to the world of images and sounds that we know. Our family, the places we know, the settings that have served as the background to the story of our life – these are the emotional attachment points keeping us in the past and preventing us from recognizing that this past is in fact already GONE. We are already dead to the past. The past is no longer here. It is gone as we know it. It exists only as reflections in our mind bringing up emotional content and drawing us into the dream we call “our life.”

Jump from the edge of space

The 43-year-old leapt from a capsule more than 38 kilometres above the Earth, reaching a speed of 1136km/h before opening his red and white parachute and floating down to the New Mexico desert.

Mission control erupted in cheers as Baumgartner made a near-perfect jump from the capsule hoisted aloft by a giant helium-filled balloon to an altitude of 128,097 feet (39,044 metres), even higher than expected.

Here is a couple of images i made just for the occasion
