Thoughts on Life-It's not a straight road

Life isn't a straight road,
There is a curve called failure,
A loop called confusion,
Speed bumps called friends,
Red lights called enemies,
Caution signs called family,
And sometimes you have a flat tire called jobs,
But if you have a spare called determination,
And the engine called perseverance,
You'll make it to a place called success!!

What is in your heart matters

Long long ago, on the banks of a river, there lived a monk. Right across the street from him, lived a prostitute. The monk always hated the fact that he had to live next door to the prostitute. He took every opportunity to rebuke her about her profession. He would take every opportunity to show her what a horrible person she was.

In his mind, he always compared himself with her and took big pride in the fact that he was accumulating so much good Karma compared to her.

The prostitute was a humble girl. She always respected the monk. She tried not to talk back when he was yelling at her. She felt bad about her choice of profession, but was not in a position to get out of it.

She would always try to listen when the monk prayed, hoping that listening God’s name would help her wash off some of her sins.

The monk kept on his routine of massaging his own ego by comparing himself to the prostitute. Eventually he got so obsessed that he kept a jar with him and for every one person who visited the prostitute, he dropped a pebble in the jar.

The prostitute kept her own routine. She was also watching what the monk was doing. She had a jar too. And every time the monk prayed, she put a pebble in the jar.

One day there was a big flood on the river. Both the monk and the prostitute were washed away and were dead. Upon their death, their souls stood in front of the God of death.

To everyone’s surprise, the God of death ordered the prostitute to go to heaven and the monk to go to hell. The monk could not believe this. “What an injustice. You can still find a jar in my house. I have kept count of how many times this prostitute sinned. How can she go to the heaven? There must be some mistake.”

The prostitute also added humbly “I think the monk is right. I don’t deserve to go the heaven. But he does. I have a jar where I kept count of the number of times I heard his prayer. He prayed a lot. So I think he should go to heaven and I should go to hell.”

The God of death smiled and said, "The judgement is correct. It does not matter what word is in your mouth. It matters only what is in your heart. The monk's heart was filled with the prostitute's sins while he was saying his prayers. While the prostitute's heart was filled with the love of God while engaged in a life of sin. The heart that has the love of God goes to Heaven and the heart that judges others and is filled with jealousy goes to hell.
