Law Of The Seed –Email Courtsey by Akbarali Narsi

 Take a look at an apple tree. There might be five hundred apples on the tree and each apple has ten seeds. That’s a lot of seeds!   We might ask, “Why would you need so many seeds to grow just a few more apple trees?”

Nature has something to teach us here. It’s telling us:  “Not all seeds grow. In life, most seeds never grow”.

This might mean:

You’ll attend twenty interviews to get one job.
You’ll interview forty people to find one good employee.
You’ll talk to fifty people to sell one house, one car, one vacuum cleaner, one insurance policy, or a business idea 
And you might meet a hundred acquaintances just to find one special friend.
When we understand the “Law of the Seed”, we don’t get so disappointed.   

We stop feeling like victims.  
We learn how to deal with things that happen to us.  
Laws of nature are not things to take personally.  
We just need to understand them – and work with them.

IN A NUTSHELL

Successful people fail more often. But they plant more seeds.
When things are beyond your control, here’s something that you must NOT DO so as to avoid misery in your life:
– You must not decide how you think the world SHOULD be.   
– You must not make rules for how everyone SHOULD behave. 
– Then, when the world doesn’t obey your rules, you get angry!
– That’s what miserable people do!

On the other hand, let’s say you expect that:   

-Friends SHOULD return favors.  
-People SHOULD appreciate you.
-Planes SHOULD arrive on time.
-Everyone SHOULD be honest.
– Your husband or best friend SHOULD remember your birthday. 

These expectations may sound reasonable. But often, these things won’t happen!  
So you end up frustrated and disappointed.  

There’s a better strategy:

Demand less, and instead, have preferences!
For things that are beyond your control, tell yourself:   
“I would prefer this, but if that happens, it’s OK too!” 
This is really a change in mindset. It is a shift in attitude, and it gives you more peace of mind ! 
You prefer that people are polite … but when they are rude, it doesn’t ruin your day.
You prefer sunshine … but if it rains, it is OK too!

To become happier, we either need to:

a) Change the world, or 
b) Change our thinking.

Interesting Terminology we use for Ageing-email Courtsey Dr Shirish M Kothari

George Carlin on age.
 
 IF YOU DON’T READ THIS TO THE VERY END, YOU HAVE LOST A DAY IN YOUR  LIFE. AND WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED, DO AS I AM DOING AND SEND IT ON.
 
 George Carlin’s Views on Aging
 
 Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get  old is when we’re kids? If you’re less than 10 years old, you’r e so  excited about aging that you think in fractions.
 
 ‘How old are you?’ ‘I’m four and a half!’ You’re never thirty-six  and a half. You’re four and a half, going on five! That’s the key
 
 You get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back. You jump to  the next number, or even a few ahead.
 
 ‘How old are you?’ ‘I’m gonna be 16!’ You could be 13, but hey,  you’re gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life . . You  become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony . YOU BECOME 21.  YESSSS!!!
 
 But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound  like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There’s no fun  now, you’re Just a sour-dumpling. What’s wrong? What’s cha nged?
 
 You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you’rePUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the  brakes, it’s all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH50 and  your dreams are gone.
 
 But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn’t think you would!
 
 So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40,REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.
 
 You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it’s a  day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!
 
 You get into your 80’s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT  lunch; you TURN 4:30 ; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn’t end there.  Into the 90s, you start going backwards; ‘I Was JUST 92.’
 
 Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a  little kid again. ‘I’m 100 and a half!’
 May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!
 
 HOW TO STAY YOUNG 

 1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and  height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay ‘them.’
 
 2. Keep only cheerful friends The grouches pull you down.
 
 3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening,  whatever. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s  workshop.’ And thedevil’s name is Alzheimer’s.
 
 4. Enjoy the simple things.
 
 5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
 
 6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person,  who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are  alive.
 
 7. Surround yourself with what you love , whether it’s family, pets,  keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your  refuge.
 
 8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is  unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
 
 9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next  county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.
 
 10. Tell the people you love that you love them , at every  opportunity.

 
 AND ALWAYS REMEMBER :

 Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the  moments that take our breath away.
