He is not mad

An American man walked into a restaurant in London. As soon as he entered, he noticed an African man sitting in the corner. So he walked over to the counter, removed his wallet and shouted, "Waiter! I am buying food for everyone in this restaurant, except that black African guy over there!"
 
So the waiter collected the money from the man and began serving free food to everyone in the restaurant, except the African. However, instead of becoming upset, the African simply looked up at the American and shouted, "Thank you!"
 
That infuriated the man. So once again, the American took out his wallet and shouted, "Waiter! This time I am buying bottles of wine and additional food for everyone in this bar, except for that African sitting in the corner over there!" So the waiter collected the money from the man and began serving free food and wine to everyone in the bar except the African.
 
When the waiter finished serving the food and drinks, once again, instead of becoming angry, the African simply smiled at the American man and shouted, "Thank you!"
 
That made the American man furious. So he leaned over on the counter and said to the waiter, "What is wrong with that African man? I have bought food and drinks for everyone in this bar except him, but instead of becoming angry, he just sits there and smiles at me and shouts 'Thank you.' Is he mad???"
 
The waiter smiled at the American and said, "No, he is not mad. He is the owner of this restaurant.
 
May your enemies work unknowingly in your favour.

Signs of aging

After a meeting, I was coming out of a hotel and I was looking for my car keys. They were not in my pockets. A quick search in the meeting room, it wasn't there too....
 
Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car.
 
My husband has shouted many times for leaving the keys in the ignition.
 
My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them .......
 
His theory is the car will be stolen if left at the ignition key slot !
 
Immediately, I rushed to the parking lot and came to a terrifying conclusion .....
 
His theory was right. The parking lot was empty
 
I immediately called the police. I gave them my location, description of the car, place I parked, etc. I equally confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that the car had been stolen.
 
Then I made the most difficult call of all, to my husband,
 
"Honey (I stammered ; I always call him 'honey' in times like these ) , I left my keys in the car .... and it has been stolen."
 
There was a big silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard his voice.
 
"Idiot", he shouted, "I dropped you at the hotel !"
 
Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, and happy as well, I said, "Well, then please come and get me."
 
He shouted again, "I will, as soon as I convince this policeman, that I have not stolen your car."
 
Send to other husbands or wives because ....So many things go wrong daily, and you can't blame yourself all the times

Who is bound to whom?


A nice story of Adi Shankaracharya teaching his students how to empty and free their mind:

"Adi Sankara was walking through the market place with his disciples.

They saw a man dragging a cow by a rope.

Sankara told the man to wait and asked his disciples to surround them.

“I am going to teach you something” and continued...

“Tell me who is bound to whom? Is the cow bound to this man or the man is bound to the cow?"

The disciples said without hesitation “Of course the cow is bound to the man!. The man is the master. He is holding the rope. The cow has to follow him wherever he goes. The man is the master and the cow is the slave.”

“Now watch this”, said Sankara and took a pair of scissors from his bag and cut the rope.

The cow ran away from the master and the man ran after his cow. “Look, what is happening”, said Sankara

“Do you see who the Master is? The cow is not at all interested in this man. The cow in fact, is trying to escape from this man.

This is the case with our MIND.

Like the cow, all the non-sense that we carry inside is not interested in us. WE ARE INTERESTED IN IT, we are keeping it together somehow or the other. We are going crazy trying to keep it all together under our control.

The moment we lose interest in all the garbage filled in our head, and the moment we understand the futility of it, it will start to disappear. Like the cow, it will escape and disappear.”

Feeling Free and Relaxed is a Choice!!!
