Don’t wait for the parrot to die……!!!.

This Story is a tale of an old woman  who  bought a parrot to keep her company  and for entertainment, but  she returned it the very  next day of  the purchase.

“This bird doesn’t  talk”, she told the owner.

“Does he have a mirror in his cage?”, he asked. “ Parrot  love mirrors. They see their reflection and start a conversation.” He replied.

The old woman bought a mirror and left in the cage. The next day she returned back and inform the shopkeeper that  the bird still  wasn’t talking .

“How about a ladder? Parrot loves ladders. The happy parrot is a talkative parrot.”

The woman bought a ladder and left it in the cage, But the next day, she was back.

“ Does your parrot have a swing? No? Well, that’s the problem. Once he starts swinging, he’ll talk up like a storm.”

The Old lady reluctantly bought a swing and left. When she walked into the store next day, her countenance had changed.

“The parrot died”, She said.

The Pet store owner was shocked.  “I’m so sorry. Tell me. Did he ever say anything?”, he asked.

“Yes, right before it died” , the woman replied.

“In a weak voice, it asked me, ‘ don’t  they  sell any food at that pet store?”

 Sometimes we forget what’s really important in Life. We get so caught up in things that are good while neglecting the things that are truly necessary.


Take a moment to do a priority check and strive for what is most important today.


Don’t  wait for the parrot to die……!!!.       

I Am An Incorrigible Optimist….

I AM AN incorrigible optimist. I’m aware of the threats that surround us, but I haven’t lost my faith, I haven’t lost my hope. And I haven’t lost my confidence that people working together harmoniously can bring about a change for the better in the world that our children will grow up in. It’s not for governments to improve our lives. It is for each individual to ask himself or herself, “Should I continue to make things which destroy life, or can I lend my expertise and my experience to benefit life, to help life?” We get discouraged because we don’t see life as it is. We feel we can’t make a difference because we don’t see things as they really are. When we see life as it is, when we see people as they are, all sorrow will fall away, all suffering will come to an end. This is the great message of all religions. When we see life as it is, all sorrow falls away.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj Quote

Questioner: How to deal with people?

Maharaj: Why make plans and what for? Such questions show anxiety. Relationship is a living thing. Be at peace with your inner self and you will be at peace with everybody.

Realize that you are not the master of what happens, you cannot control the future except in purely technical matters.

Human relationship cannot be planned, it is too rich and varied.
Just be understanding and compassionate, free of all self-seeking.

Questioner: Surely, I am not the master of what happens. Its slave rather.

Maharaj: Be neither master, nor slave. Stand aloof.
