The Train Of Life

The Train Of Life
Life is like a journey on a train, with its stations, with changes of routes, and their accidents!

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone.

As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of your life. Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don’t realize they vacated their seats.

This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down.

So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty, we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.

I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life. Reap success and give lots of love. More importantly, thank God for the journey.

Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train.

Tomato Help

Tomato Help
An old Italian gentleman lived alone in New Jersey. He wanted to plant his annual tomato garden, but it was very difficult work, as the ground was hard. His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament:

Dear Vincent,

I am feeling pretty sad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my tomato garden this year. I’m just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. I know if you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would be happy to dig the plot for me, like in the old days.
Love, Papa

A few days later he received a letter from his son.

Dear Papa,

Don’t dig up that garden. That’ s where the bodies are buried.
Love, Vinnie

At 4 a.m. The next morning, FBI agents and local police arrived and dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man and left. That same day the old man received another letter from his son.

Dear Papa,

Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That’s the best I could do under the circumstances.
Love you, Vinnie.

We Should Do Meditation And Yoga At Work!

Mark Bertolini

Mark Bertolini

As Mark Bertolini contemplated the downhill run, on Feb 18 2004, little did he realize that his life was going to change forever, and that these changes would eventually snowball into something that would change thousands of lives.

Soon Mark lost control and hurtled downhill on his skis at increasing speeds. Ricocheting of a tree he tumbled down a 30 foot ravine. When his daughter eventually found him he was lying motionless in the snow. Five vertebrae in his neck had fractured. Most of the nerves that connected his left arm to the spine had detached. His injuries were so severe that he was read the last rites on the helicopter that took him to the hospital.

For most people these injuries would lead to death or permanent disability and most certainly an end of career. But Mark T. Bertolini is no ordinary person and he was not going to allow these injuries to stop him from progressing his career. To the utter disbelief of his doctors he was able to leave the hospital in 12 days. Less than a month after the accident he was seen giving a presentation at an investor conference!

In about 6 years since his accident he became CEO of Aetna, a 58B fortune 100 company with close to 50,000 employees and 46 Million customers, and in another six months he assumed the role of chairman.

But the turning point for Mark came about a year after his accident. He had spent the year on OxyContin, Vicodin, and Fentanyl and yet found little relief in the burning pain in his arm. He felt as if somebody was burning his arm with a torch all day long. He then turned to alternative remedies and that is when he discovered yoga. His inner turmoil soon turned into inner transformation.

A Prayer For Those Pushing 60 Or Beyond

Prayer For 60 Plus
Almighty God you know that I am growing older.

Keep me from becoming too talkative, from repeating all my jokes and anecdotes, and particularly keep me from falling into the tiresome habit of expressing an opinion on every subject.

Release me from craving to straighten out everyone’s affairs.

Keep my mind free from recital of endless details.

Give me wings to get to the point.

Give me the grace, dear GOD, to listen to others as they describe their aches and pains.

Help me endure the boredom with patience and keep my lips sealed, for my own aches and pains are increasing in number and intensity, and the pleasure of discussing them is becoming sweeter as the years go by.

Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally, I might be mistaken. Keep me reasonably sweet.
