Very nice msg ....
ईश्वर का दिया कभी अल्प नहीं होता;
जो टूट जाये वो संकल्प नहीं होता;
हार को लक्ष्य से दूर ही रखना;
क्योंकि जीत का कोई विकल्प नहीं होता।
जिंदगी में दो चीज़ें हमेशा टूटने के लिए ही होती हैं:
"सांस और साथ"
सांस टूटने से तो इंसान एकही बार मरता है;
पर किसी का साथ टूटने से इंसान पल-पल मरता है।
जीवन का सबसे बड़ा अपराध - किसी की आँख में आंसू आपकी वजह से होना।
जीवन की सबसे बड़ी उपलब्धि - किसी की आँख में आंसू आपके लिए होना।
जिंदगी जीना आसान नहीं होता;
बिना संघर्ष कोई महान नहीं होता;
जब तक न पड़े हथोड़े की चोट;
पत्थर भी भगवान नहीं होता।
जरुरत के मुताबिक जिंदगी जिओ - ख्वाहिशों के मुताबिक नहीं।
क्योंकि जरुरत तो फकीरों की भी पूरी हो जाती है;
और ख्वाहिशें बादशाहों की भी अधूरी रह जाती है।
मनुष्य सुबह से शाम तक काम करके उतना नहीं थकता;
जितना क्रोध और चिंता से एक क्षण में थक जाता है।
दुनिया में कोई भी चीज़ अपने आपके लिए नहीं बनी है।
दरिया - खुद अपना पानी नहीं पीता।
पेड़ - खुद अपना फल नहीं खाते।
सूरज - अपने लिए हररात नहीं देता।
फूल - अपनी खुशबु अपने लिए नहीं बिखेरते।
मालूम है क्यों?
क्योंकि दूसरों के लिए ही जीना ही असली जिंदगी है।
मांगो तो अपने रब से मांगो;
जो दे तो रहमत और न दे तो किस्मत;
लेकिन दुनिया से हरगिज़ मत माँगना;
क्योंकि दे तो एहसान और न दे तो शर्मिंदगी।
कभी भी 'कामयाबी' को दिमाग और 'नकामी' को दिल में जगह नहीं देनी चाहिए।
क्योंकि, कामयाबी दिमाग में घमंड और नकामी दिल में मायूसी पैदा करती है।
कौन देता है उम्र भर का सहारा।
लोग तो जनाज़े में भी कंधे बदलते रहते हैं।

BEHIND THE CURTAIN
BEHIND THE CURTAIN
- N.Reghunatha Panicker
Every occurrence of phenomena or objects in the physical world is a feast for our external senses. In the absence of genuine seekers, the immanent truth behind these appearances will lie hidden forever. But, fortunately, sages of yore have passed on to us revelations in respect of cosmogonical truths.
The universe as appears to us is the ongoing handiwork of a hierarchy of active intelligences in obedience to the Divine Ideation. All religions of the world mention about them. Egyptian and Hellenic (Greek) call them THE GODS; Jewish Kabbalah refers them SEPHIROTH; Christian Bible mentions them ANGELIC HOSTS and Hindu scriptures DEVAS. These intelligences are the ones who translate the Godly archetypes into the field and sustain them during the entire period of manifestation. Also, as a link between man and God they shower their loving care on humanity, for it to coexist in celestial harmony and help them in their spiritual aspirations, keeping their stance, of course, BEHIND THE CURTAIN. Therefore, for all practical purposes the common man takes them as the de facto God.
Sephiroth (plural of sephira) consists of: 1.Kether (the crown) 2.Chokmah (wisdom) 3.Binah (understanding) 4.Chesed (mercy) 5.Geburah (power) 6.Tiphereth (beauty) 7.Netzach (victory) 8.Hod (splendour) 9.Jesod (foundation) and 10.Malkuth (the kingdom).
Angelic Hosts consists of : 1.Seraphim 2.Cherubim 3.Thrones 4.Dominions 5.Virtues 6.Powers 7.Principalities 8.Arch Angels and 9.Angels.
Deva Kingdom are there for Akasa, Vayu, Agni, water and earth.
Another classification says : Gnomes(Earth), Undynes(water), Salamander(Fire) and Sylph(Air).
Esoterically they are the THOUGHT FORMS of the Divine. Though they do not have fleshy bodies, they have characteristic appearances. They are asexual and have no sense of separation. Burdened with specific powers they are innumerable in number and are of varied ORDERS of intelligences inhabiting in superphysical worlds as a kingdom parallel to the human kingdom. Nature spirits are the lowest Orders and they dwell in the Astral world just adjacent to the Physical. Nature spirits undergo evolutionary progress to higher levels in the hierarchy.
Religious rituals and ceremonial observances are the methods to influence the kingdom BEHIND THE CURTAIN. Chanting of mantras with right intonation, lucid vision and strong Will, will attract the related intelligence to the arena of the ritual. But their presence can be seen only through clairvoyance. Offerings to fire, water, air, etc. along with related verbal sounds are aimed at propitiating these intelligences and for their benevolent response.
Repetition of religious rites and ceremonies through successive generations had resulted in consolidation of the presence of these intelligences in the mental world. Congregational practices multiply their efficacy manifold. These facts of Repetition and Congregation rejuvenate Nature as well enabling the pilgrims to such locations to feel an unforgettable MAGNETISM. Holy places are thus born.
As performers in the stage and prompters behind the curtain together make a drama wonderful, this cooperation of visible and invisible participants makes our life-drama full of wonder, beauty and meaning. Peace in heart and power in head will be for those who FEEL and EXPERIENCE the totality of the universe inclusive of its seen and unseen realms. Motive power for perpetrating all sorts of social evils will be from those who do not attempt even to think about the arcane wisdom inherited to the present progeny.
Inner Wisdom says that refraining from divulging matters of hidden world that are not at all irrelevant and untrue is equivalent to sticking on to the physical world permanently. Transcending the physical is the spiritual way of the seekers of Truth and therefore the preceding lines are presented for approaching them intuitively.

He joined Microsoft 22 years ago because he saw how clearly Microsoft empowers people to do magical things and ultimately make the world a better place. Many companies, he says, “aspire to change the world. But very few have all the elements required: talent, resources and perseverance. Microsoft has proven that it has all three in abundance.”
Satya Nadella email to employees on first day as CEO
From: Satya Nadella
To: All Employees
Date: Feb. 4, 2014
Subject: RE: Satya Nadella – Microsoft’s New CEO
Today is a very humbling day for me. It reminds me of my very first day at Microsoft, 22 years ago. Like you, I had a choice about where to come to work. I came here because I believed Microsoft was the best company in the world. I saw then how clearly we empower people to do magical things with our creations and ultimately make the world a better place. I knew there was no better company to join if I wanted to make a difference. This is the very same inspiration that continues to drive me today.
It is an incredible honor for me to lead and serve this great company of ours. Steve and Bill have taken it from an idea to one of the greatest and most universally admired companies in the world. I’ve been fortunate to work closely with both Bill and Steve in my different roles at Microsoft, and as I step in as CEO, I’ve asked Bill to devote additional time to the company, focused on technology and products. I’m also looking forward to working with John Thompson as our new Chairman of the Board.
While we have seen great success, we are hungry to do more. Our industry does not respect tradition — it only respects innovation. This is a critical time for the industry and for Microsoft. Make no mistake, we are headed for greater places — as technology evolves and we evolve with and ahead of it. Our job is to ensure that Microsoft thrives in a mobile and cloud-first world.
As we start a new phase of our journey together, I wanted to share some background on myself and what inspires and motivates me.
Who am I?
I am 46. I’ve been married for 22 years and we have 3 kids. And like anyone else, a lot of what I do and how I think has been shaped by my family and my overall life experiences. Many who know me say I am also defined by my curiosity and thirst for learning. I buy more books than I can finish. I sign up for more online courses than I can complete. I fundamentally believe that if you are not learning new things, you stop doing great and useful things. So family, curiosity and hunger for knowledge all define me.
Why am I here?
I am here for the same reason I think most people join Microsoft — to change the world through technology that empowers people to do amazing things. I know it can sound hyperbolic — and yet it’s true. We have done it, we’re doing it today, and we are the team that will do it again.
I believe over the next decade computing will become even more ubiquitous and intelligence will become ambient. The coevolution of software and new hardware form factors will intermediate and digitize — many of the things we do and experience in business, life and our world. This will be made possible by an ever-growing network of connected devices, incredible computing capacity from the cloud, insights from big data, and intelligence from machine learning.
This is a software-powered world.
It will better connect us to our friends and families and help us see, express, and share our world in ways never before possible. It will enable businesses to engage customers in more meaningful ways.
I am here because we have unparalleled capability to make an impact.
Why are we here?
In our early history, our mission was about the PC on every desk and home, a goal we have mostly achieved in the developed world. Today we’re focused on a broader range of devices. While the deal is not yet complete, we will welcome to our family Nokia devices and services and the new mobile capabilities they bring us.
As we look forward, we must zero in on what Microsoft can uniquely contribute to the world. The opportunity ahead will require us to reimagine a lot of what we have done in the past for a mobile and cloud-first world, and do new things.
We are the only ones who can harness the power of software and deliver it through devices and services that truly empower every individual and every organization. We are the only company with history and continued focus in building platforms and ecosystems that create broad opportunity.
Qi Lu captured it well in a recent meeting when he said that Microsoft uniquely empowers people to "do more." This doesn’t mean that we need to do more things, but that the work we do empowers the world to do more of what they care about — get stuff done, have fun, communicate and accomplish great things. This is the core of who we are, and driving this core value in all that we do — be it the cloud or device experiences — is why we are here.
What do we do next?
To paraphrase a quote from Oscar Wilde — we need to believe in the impossible and remove the improbable.
This starts with clarity of purpose and sense of mission that will lead us to imagine the impossible and deliver it. We need to prioritize innovation that is centered on our core value of empowering users and organizations to “do more.” We have picked a set of high-value activities as part of our One Microsoft strategy. And with every service and device launch going forward we need to bring more innovation to bear around these scenarios.
Next, every one of us needs to do our best work, lead and help drive cultural change. We sometimes underestimate what we each can do to make things happen and overestimate what others need to do to move us forward. We must change this.
Finally, I truly believe that each of us must find meaning in our work. The best work happens when you know that it's not just work, but something that will improve other people's lives. This is the opportunity that drives each of us at this company.
Many companies aspire to change the world. But very few have all the elements required: talent, resources, and perseverance. Microsoft has proven that it has all three in abundance. And as the new CEO, I can’t ask for a better foundation.
Let’s build on this foundation together.
