Change yourself before it's too late..

Changing your nature is one of the hardest thing  in the world. And it does not get easy with age. My college teacher once told the class - Your HABIT are very difficult to change, you remove H and A BIT remains, then you remove A, still BIT remains, then you remove B and still IT remains. 

As Mahatma Gandhi once said - "Be the change you want to see in the world". 

Changing your nature is not an easy task but you can be what you choose to be. Try to be positive of the thing around you, don't be critical of everything little thing that's happening in your life. Don't be covered by lust and deception and throw away your bad nature. You can't be progressive if you are not flexible to the changes. A hard stick is meant to be broken when bent while a rubber having a flexible nature does not break.

Robin Sharma rightly said - Change is hard at the beginning, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end.
Socrates once said - " The secret of the change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building a the new". Don't fear of the change, in the process you might loose something good, but you will eventually find something better.  

Here is small story of a master and his disciples, where the master explains to his disciples that nothing in the world can make you better if you do not change your nature.

One day all the disciples went to their master' and said, "Master, Master, we all are going on a pilgrimage.

Master: Why you want to go on a pilgrimage trip?

Disciples: So that we can improve our devotion.

Master: OK. Then do me a favour. Please take this karela (bitter gourd) along with you and wherever you go and whichever temple you visit, place it in the alter of the Deity, take the blessings and bring it back.

So, not only the disciples but the Karela also went on pilgrimage, temple to temple.

And finally when they came back, the Master said, "cook that karela and serve it to me."

The disciples cooked it and served it to the master.

After having the first bite, the master said,


Disciples: What's so surprising ?

Master: Even after the pilgrimage the karela is still bitter. 
How come ???'

Disciples: But that's the very nature of the Karela, Master.

Master: That's what I am saying. Unless you change your nature, pilgrimage will not make any difference.

So, you & I, if we do not change ourselves no teacher or guru can make a difference in our lives.

If you think positively,
Sound becomes music,
Movement become dance,
Smile becomes laughter,
Mind becomes meditative
Life becomes a celebration...

Keep moving forward, keep rolling!
