Nothing is too Big or too Small!

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. I didn’t say that. Elbert Einstein did.  Einstein was amazing. I have not read another scientist with his level of wisdom, philosophy, and yet so convincing. Einstein was slow in learning how to speak. His parents even consulted a doctor. He also had a cheeky rebelliousness toward authority, which led one headmaster to expel him and another to amuse history by saying that he would never amount to much. But these traits helped make him a genius. His cocky dislike for authorities led him to question conventional wisdom. His slow verbal development made him curious about ordinary things — such as space and time — that most adults take for granted. They say; “Nothing is too big or too small, if we have right attitude and passion for the Subject”. Even Einstein went to say that “Follow your curiosity, there lies your success” J  

Nothing is too big or too small se yaad aya…NO-NO-NO, not that song of Shakira, but a beautiful story…

Two men went fishing. One man was an experienced fisherman, the other wasn't. Every time the experienced fisherman caught a big fish, he put it in his ice chest to keep it fresh. Whenever the inexperienced fisherman caught a big fish, he threw it back. The experienced fisherman watched this go on all day and finally got tired of seeing this man waste good fish. "Why do you keep throwing back all the big fish you catch?" he asked. The inexperienced fisherman replied, "I only have a small frying pan."

Sometimes, like that fisherman, we throw back the big plans, the big dreams, the big jobs and the big opportunities that universe brings onto us. Our faith is too small. We laugh at that fisherman who didn't figure out that all he needed was a bigger frying pan? Whether it's a problem or a possibility, the universe can be or will never give us anything bigger than we can handle.

So; the bottom line is our “FAITH” or our “BELIEVE”! That what needs to change or to be altered for the bigger fish to be cooked…I mean for us to achieve what truly makes us contented.

The son and me were little anxious all day; how to design and decorate a castle. We had faith though, that by end of today, it has to be done and look at the output!!! Incredible, so is the little boy….Thukda…Jigar ka Tukda..Is what I call him J  His guitar teacher saw us practicing Yoga at home today and insisted that I teach him and Rishi yoga for 15-20 mins every Sunday? Nervous but I like that opportunity…opportunity to pass on…


Friends; its that time again…thank you once again for your time, patience. All the best wishes for next week. Can you believe first month of 2016 will end next week? So quick…so soon J  Take good care of yourself. Subh Ratri, Sabha Khair and Goodnight.
