LOVE TURNS THE TABLES
There used to live a hunter in the same locality as Saint Francis of Assisi. He would go into the wild with his bow and arrows, and wait in stealth to hunt the birds. By the end of the day, he would manage a few.
Once on his way to the forest, he saw St Francis standing in peace, in the same place where he had to hide for hours to find a bird. There were tens of birds flocking around Saint Francis. They were sitting around him and listening to him as he spoke to them gently.
The hunter was puzzled; he thought, If I could catch birds that easily, I would become rich and life would be so easy! He went to St Francis and asked, “Dear sir, how is it that birds come and flock around you while they run away as soon as I come near them?”
St Francis smiled and said, “That is because they know my love for them is true. If you love them truly, they will like you too.”
The hunter observed St Francis for a couple of days. He stood in the field with open arms and acted as if he was harmless. No bird came anywhere near him. Disappointed, he went to St Francis and said, “Still no bird comes near me, sir.”
“I think the birds are not convinced that you love them truly,” said St Francis.
The hunter resolved to give it his everything. He went and stood with a firm resolve for a whole day in the field, his heart full of love for the birds. The birds came and sat next to him. His intention was so strong that he actually felt true love for the birds. Though now there were plenty of birds around him, he had no intention to kill them.
THIS I KNOW
• I don’t care that they stole my idea. I care that they don’t have their own.
• Be alone. That is the secret of invention. That is where ideas are born.
• If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.
• The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane enough to think clearly. One can think deeply and be quite insane.
• The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in a decade than in all the previous centuries of existence.
• A new idea must not be judged by its immediate results.
• The gift of mental power comes from God, and if we concentrate our minds on that truth, we come in tune with this great power.
I WILL NOT DIE AN UNLIVED LIFE
I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance,
to live so that which comes to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.
FATE VS DESTINY
To a woman who complained about her destiny, the Master said, “It is who you make your destiny.”
“But surely, I am not responsible for being born a woman.”
“Being born a woman isn’t destiny. That’s fate. Destiny is how you accept your womanhood and what you make of it.”
—Anthony de Mello
JUST FOR LAUGHS

“Life is very interesting. In the end, some of your greatest pains become your greatest strengths.”
