George Carlin’s Views on Aging –
*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 – who make smile – laugh . The grouches pull you down – better keep them away.

3. Keep learning New things.  Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, music, whatever, even ham radio. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’ And the devil’s   family name is   Alzheimer’s.

4. Enjoy the simple things in Life. Take time out to smell Roses.

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. Or gracefully accept the inevitable and LIVE LIFE KING SIZE.

9. Forget the past. No regrets – NO guilt. Don’t take guilt trips. Enjoy the present. 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”

And, if you don’t send this to at least 8 people – who cares? But do share this with someone. We all need to live life to its fullest each day!!

“Life’s journey is not to
arrive at the grave safely
in a well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways,
totally used up and worn out, shouting
‘…man, what a ride!’

*WISH YOU BEST OF EVERYTHING*

Pls share this beautiful Bhagvat Gita message with everyone, to know the meaning of life !!!

A man died…

When he realized it, he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.

Dialogue between God and Dead Man:

God: Alright son, it’s time to go.

Man: So soon? I had a lot of plans…

God: I am sorry but, it’s time to go.

Man: What do you have in that suitcase?

God: Your belongings.

Man: My belongings? You mean my things… Clothes… money…

God: Those things were never yours, they belong to the Earth.

Man: Is it my memories?

God: No. They belong to Time.

Man: Is it my talent?

God: No. They belong to Circumstance.

Man: Is it my friends and family?

God: No son. They belong to the Path you travelled.

Man: Is it my wife and children?

God: No. they belong to your Heart.

Man: Then it must be my body?

God: No, No… It belongs to Dust.

Man: Then surely it must be my Soul!

God: You are sadly mistaken son. Your Soul belongs to me.

Man, with tears in his eyes and full of fear, took the suitcase from God’s hand and opened it…

Empty…

Heartbroken and tears falling down his cheeks, he asks God…

Man: I never owned anything?

God: That’s right. You never owned anything.

Man: Then? What was mine?

God: Your MOMENTS.
Every moment you lived was yours.

Do Good in every moment
Think Good in every moment
Thank God for every moment

Life is just a Moment.

Live it…
Love it…
Enjoy it…

👏👏👏 It is the soul of BHAGVAT GITA 👏👏👏

Some interesting facts and observations about “Playing cards”::

Never knew this. Hence sharing:

😳Some interesting facts and observations about “Playing cards”::
😳

Did you know that the Traditional Deck of the Playing Cards are a veritable and most ingenious form of a Calendar?😳

There are 52 weeks in the year and so are 52 Playing Cards in a Deck.😳

There are 13 weeks in each Season and thus there are 13 cards in each suit. 😳

There are 4 Seasons in a Year and 4 Suits in the Deck. 😳

There are 12 Months in a Year so there are 12 Court Cards (Those with faces namely Jackdo Queens with The King in each suit) 😳

The Red Cards represent the Day, while the Black Cards represent the Night.
😳

If you let
Jacks = 11, Queens = 12, and the Kings = 13, then add up all the sums of 1 + 2 + 3 + …to 13 = 91. Multiply this by 4, for the 4 Suits, therefore 91 x 4 = 364, Add 1 that is the Joker and you will arrive at the number 365 being the Days in a Year? 😳

Is that a mere coincidence or a greater intelligence ?😳

Of interest is the sum of the letters in all the names of the cards; eg :

add up the letters in “one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, Jack, Queen, King” = 52 !😳

The Spades indicate ploughing/ working.😳

The Hearts indicates Love thy crops. 😳

The Clubs indicates flourishing and growth.
😳

The Diamonds indicate reaping the Wealth.😳

Also, in some card games 2 Jokers are used.Indicating the Leap year.😳

There is a deeper Philosophy than just a merely a Game of Playing Cards.😳😳

The Mathematical perfection is mind blowing.

Following are some instances when silence could speak louder than voice.

Can you hear a pin drop?

What is the meaning of pin drop silence?

Following are some instances when silence could speak louder than voice.

Take 1:

Field Marshal Sam Bahadur Maneckshaw once started addressing a public meeting at Ahmedabad in English.

The crowd started chanting, “Speak in Gujarati.

We will hear you only if you speak in Gujarati.”
Field Marshal Sam Bahadur Maneckshaw stopped.
Swept the audience with a hard stare and replied,

“Friends, I have fought many a battle in my long career.
I have learned Punjabi from men of the Sikh Regiment;
Marathi from the Maratha Regiment;
Tamil from the men of the Madras Sappers;
Bengali from the men of the Bengal Sappers,
Hindi from the Bihar Regiment; and
Even Nepali from the Gurkha Regiment.

Unfortunately there was no soldier from Gujarat from whom I could have learned Gujarati.”…

You could have heard a pin drop

Take 2:

Robert Whiting,
an elderly US gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane.

At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on.

“You have been to France before, Monsieur ?”, the Customs officer asked sarcastically.

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

“Then you should know enough to have your passport ready.”

The American said,
“The last time I was here,
I didn’t have to show it.”

“Impossible.
Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France !”, the Customs officer sneered.

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long, hard look.

Then he quietly explained

“Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach,
at 4:40am, on D-Day in 1944, to help liberate your country, I couldn’t find a single Frenchman to show a passport to…. ”

You could have heard a pin drop

Take 3:

Soon after getting freedom from British rule in 1947, the de-facto prime minister of India, Jawahar Lal Nehru called a meeting of senior Army Officers to select the first General of the Indian army.

Nehru proposed, “I think we should appoint a British officer as a General of The Indian Army, as we don’t have enough experience to lead the same.”
Having learned under the British, only to serve and rarely to lead, all the civilians and men in uniform present nodded their heads in agreement.

However one senior officer, Nathu Singh Rathore, asked for permission to speak.

Nehru was a bit taken aback by the independent streak of the officer, though, he asked him to speak freely.

Rathore said, “You see, sir, we don’t have enough experience to lead a nation too, so shouldn’t we appoint a British person as the first Prime Minister of India?”

You could hear a pin drop.

After a pregnant pause, Nehru asked Rathore,
“Are you ready to be the first General of The Indian Army?”..

Rathore declined the offer saying “Sir, we have a very talented army officer, my senior, Gen. Cariappa, who is the most deserving among us.”

This is how the brilliant Gen. Cariappa became the first General and Rathore the first ever Lt. General of the Indian Army.
