The name on the gravestone.

WHAT YOU BRING TO THE WORLD- NOTHING!

WHAT YOU TAKE FROM THE WORLD-NOTHING!

Then why do you live your life as if you own everything?

I am going to tell you a story. Listen carefully:

Once a Swiss industrialist, who was living in Bale, happened to cross a cemetery one winter’s day. Snow covered most of the gravestones making it impossible to read the inscriptions. Suddenly he stopped. On one gravestone sheltered by a pine tree a name could be read. It was his own name “Charles Mez”. He did not know who that namesake of his might be, whose body rested there, but the fact that the only legible name in the whole cemetery was his own made a profound impression on him. “Where would I be now? If my body, separated from my soul, lay under there.” Standing alone in the middle of that icy landscape illustrating the state of his soul, he acknowledged his sins, his indifference, his scorn for God’s love. The gospel heard on other occasions without him paying attention to it, suddenly impressed itself upon him as something living and personal. He turned to Jesus, prayed and obtained peace of heart that the Son of God gives. From that day life of Charles Mez showed that he belonged to Jesus Christ. His joy was to serve Him.

Understand just a small lesson from this. If we are born on this earth one day, we will go from this earth on an unexpected one day. Don’t wait until then to acknowledge your life and your deeds. Do not let your soul suffer and weep for the misdeeds you did on earth. This life on earth is temporary. You can see the cruelty of death around you, yet you are kept safe by the love of  God. Think how much he loves you for that. He kept you safe from evil men, lustful desires, evil traps, evil spirits, disasters, diseases, wild animals, sudden death etc.. He blessed you with a home, family, shelter and food. Think how much it means. How much it is worth. He gave a gift of Bible full of promises. So isn’t it your turn to thank Him for all that is given to you and your loved ones? Yes, that’s what God loves so much.He loves acknowledgement of  His blessings. So isn’t you turn to acknowledge Him as God?

So pray everyday, Make God a priority in your life, forgive others, Love unconditionally and “Do good, speak good and feel good.” Don’t wait for things until its too late. Start from now. Have a blessed day! 🙂

P.S: I am giving you two titles to have a glance. These are books written by the respective authors. These two realities opened my inner eyes. Please have a look.

What I call true love..

I am true believer of true love. I believe wholeheartedly in God. I believe Jesus came down to earth humbled Himself and died for us. I call that selfless love. aa

I am not here to talk about the depth of His love, because we know that the vastness and depth of the ocean cannot be measured. GOD’S LOVE IS IMMEASURABLE. I am here to show you how to love your “the one person” in your life in His way. God’s love was selfless. No matter how much ever the Israelites tested Him and tried Him, He continued loving them. He forgave them freely. When they went overboard in rejecting Him, He came down to the earth and got crucified for them. That’s what I call selfless love. Now tell me, how many of us loves like this? How many of us love atleast our life partners in this way? God clearly mentioned in the Holy Bible about monogamous love.

I am going to talk about that kind of love. The concept of “The one person” in your life. The concept that shows where one person is everything in your life, that you never have to search anymore. All you can see in this dirty world is that either love is physical, or people doesn’t believe in concept of “one true love” They try their luck with various partners and end up having a dog beside them at their death bed. We rarely see the strong,deep and everlasting love which is towards the acperson’s heart and soul. Rather we see love that is towards body, money, fame, buisness etc.. Such kind of love never lasted. You can take the count of love that is deeply bonded and the love that lasted. Its with those people who loved each other’s heart and stayed through all the thick and thin of life. In our Indian culture I see marriage as a business between two families rather than love between two souls. That doesn’t mean, I support love marriages here, coz I have also seen failure in the latter’s case. Love that happens between two souls and two hearts is what I call true love. Such love can never be replaced by any other person in the world. It can only fulfilled by one heart and soul. That is what I have looking for my entire life. 🙂 {Such love will be more beautiful if you include the Heavenly Power in it 🙂 }

Recently I got to see an Indian movie that fascinated me. It is a telugu movie called “Manam” which means “Us” in english. Keeping aside the business side of the movie, I am going to talk about what captured me in the story. The story is about rebirth of two couples, who was unable to love in their past lives. {Hindu scriptures believe in the concept of different lives} It is about how God is giving chance to the two couples to reincarnate their love. The first couple loved each other so much, They were arranged to marry. So they abknew each other only after marriage. Misunderstandings aroused between them and they used to fight every day. Atlast they both came to a point of split up. After filing for the divorce, the husband realized that the wife was fighting with him due to pure misunderstanding of betrayal. That is when the wife uttered her last words “Its better to die; than to divorce”. They suddenly met up with an accident where the wife died on spot. The husband hugs her and cries that he couldn’t live without her and his child. A lorry appears from nowhere. The husband sees it, kisses his wife’s cheek and hugs her, preparing himself to die with her. The car was hit and it blasted. That was the end of their lives. Here only towards the end their true love for each other was revealed. The part ends with the tagline “That is why God gives some a second chance in life to love.” As they enter their second life, the husband tells the wife that it’s better forgive their mistakes than forget the pure love between them. That is what caught me up. That’s why I am sharing this story. There is no true love in the world without ups and down. But if the couple loves each other purely, honesty, trust and forgivable attitude is enough to fight the misunderstandings between them. True love survives. Its better to love one person truly through your heart and soul rather going with many people and ending with no one. Love can come in any form. But if it is true, then never let it go.

I am just concluding this post with the line of the husband in the story. “If there is love between two people, then mistakes can be forgiven.” Never forget the pure love between you people. 🙂
