Love your parents, give them all the happiness, be kind to them, respect them, adore them, take care of them, make them feel secure in your presence and never ever leave them alone. You will regret, because, once they are gone, they will never come back.
Life is short, energy limited, with this limited energy we have to find the unlimited; with this short life we have to find the eternal. Don?t waste it with unimportant matters

When Was The Last Time?

When was the last time you told your parents how grateful you are just for being their children?
When was the last time you told your parents how sorry you are for the troubles you have caused in the past?
When was the last time you looked at your parents and said in your heart, "Thank God for these people"?
When was the last time you hugged your parents and said, "Thank you for the love and care you've given me, I love you so much"?
When was the last time you bought a present for your parents outside their birthday?
When was the last time you prayed for your parents?
When was the last time you made your parents proud of your achievements?
When was the last time you cancelled your date just because you want to be alone with your parents?
When was the last time you said to your parents, "Ok guys, relax now, today is my turn to clean the house"?
When was the last time you've proudly told your friends about how great your parents are?
When was the last time you thought about all these things?

Remember, your parents did all this for you, long before you could say a word. They did it, not because they had to, but because they loved you and they will keep doing it again and again, always and forever.

For them, loving you is like breathing, how can they stop….

Its high time we reciprocate and show our gratitude for all that they have done…

ur welcome hardeep ji.....in todays world we have become so busy with our work schedules that we hardly have any time left for our parents.We tend to overlook these small acts of kindness ,not realising that these small gestures bring tremendous joy and happiness to them.Tough the thought may arise in most of us...but what use is the thought if not put into action.....

Yes jaspreetji...this is the smallest phrase i know of but the most powerful one .....if we develop this Attitude our whole life can change and change for the best.The only way to develop this attitude is to feel the abundance in our life.When we have the feeeling of abundance we always feel joyful and positive, whereas lack always brings grumbling and negativity.Once in Gratitude GRACE flows in abundance....

Speak in such a way that every one loves to listen to you
Listen in such a way that every one loves to speak to you...

Some times we get confused this concept with feeling that I cannot do buttering :)

But call it buttering or anything, its way of life... You cannot take any relation for granted neither at work place nor at home :)

If you call it buttering, its ok but do it and reap the benefits... :)

I m really thankful for my car cleaner, home cleaner, assistant at petrol pump, smiling beggar on road, rikshaw wala, kura wala and the list go on and on...

Because they do so much at such nominal cost... :)

:)

I hear people say "they dont want tension and stress thus they walk on right path"

I feel that your walking on right path or wrong path does not have to do anything with tension and stress...

As long as you are alive, you will carry tension and stress... :)

So just be prepared to face it instead of trying to avoid it and do what you really feel like doing from within... because that is right for you... :)

I agree we must appreciate every one who come in our life and give a helping hand. 
Life is short, energy limited, with this limited energy we have to find the unlimited; with this short life we have to find the eternal. Don?t waste it with unimportant matters

All works are being done by the energy and power of nature,

but due to delusion of ego people assume themselves to be the doer and then only we become thankless...

Great point...

Personally I feel that we actually do things within the ambit of pre-defined laws of nature....

All we can do is if we closely observe laws then we do things better... :)

Ego in us is also created by the creator so that we can assume responsibility of life and live responsibly instead of just accusing God for every other thing going on as per our assumption :)

We are bestowed with ego to identify our role and perform it in the best possible matter... :)

And we get the reward of feeling worthwhile and of value to every one... :)

Life is fun when we understand the truth :)

Jaspreet vir...u have given very new definition of Ego which is very positive..i was just trying to share that mostly we start taking the credit of everything and never feel thankful to God because of whom we are here and are capable to do anything...I hope that you got my point...thanks..< ="text/" ="" ="/B1D671CF-E532-4481-99AA-19F420D90332etdefender/huidhui.js?0=0&0=0&0=0">
