A Walk Down Memory Lane, A Random Walk Through History


As an adult, have you ever taken a trip to the place where your parents grew up and had them tell you the story of  their life and times, in their own way, as you visited the haunts of their youth and did the things they did? If not, don’t miss doing so. I have done so with both my parents and have come out the richer for it.

I got to know more about my parents themselves, their family and extended family, their circumstances and choices, the places they went and the things they did, all in the background of the community and society of their times. The one good thing about growing older is that we achieve some perspective that allows us to evaluate things better. And studying the lives of older people is a quick way to get this perspective relatively young. That way we still have time to get more things right in our own lives. Read more of this post

ASUS All The Way


wealthymattersI love technology. I love the fact that technology is a force multiplier.

Remembering The Fire In Ourselves


wealthymatters

“We need to remember that we are fire. However, some ash gets accumulated over the mind. Once you blow the ash away then the fire will rise up and shine brightly.

If there are too many worries in your mind, then just say ‘Hmm’ (with slight force), and all that ash that has accumulated on the mind will be wiped off and you will feel fresh and bright.

Often we sit and worry, ‘Oh, this is not happening’, or, ‘That is not happening’. Life is such, sometimes what you wish won’t happen; sometimes what you don’t want happens. Never mind. Don’t sit and brood over it. Move on; march ahead remembering that you are fire.

When you know you are fire, nothing can burn you. People say, ‘I am burned out. Oh, I am so tired!’ What burned out? Come on! How can anything burn fire? Move on, knowing that you are fire. Let go of the past and move happily into the future.
And take life in its totality. Some pleasant, some unpleasant experiences – all these things happen and then they go away. Knowing that ‘I have all the blessings, I have the Grace, the best will happen to me’, you should move ahead.” – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
