The paradox of our time...
The paradox of our time in history is that we have
taller buildings, but shorter tempers;
wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints;
we spend more, but have less;
we buy more, but enjoy it less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time;
we have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgment;
more experts,but more problems;
more medicine, but less wellness.
We have multiplied our possessions,
but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life;
we've added years to life, not life to years.
We've been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.
We've conquered outer space, but not inner space;
we've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul;
we've split the atom, but not our prejudice.
We have higher incomes, but lower morals;
we've become long on quantity, but short on quality.
These are the times of tall men, and short character;
steep profits, and shallow relationships.
These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare;
more leisure, but less fun;
more kinds of food, but less nutrition.
These are days of two incomes, but more divorce;
of fancier houses, but broken homes.
It is a time when there is much in the show window
and nothing in the stockroom;
a time when technology can bring this letter to you,
and a time when you can choose
either to make a difference...or just hit delete.">
The little child...
The little child whispered,
"God, speak to me"
And a meadowlark sang.
But the child did not hear.
So the child yelled,
"God, speak to me!"
And the thunder rolled across the sky
But the child did not listen.
The child looked around and said,
"God let me see you"
And a star shone brightly
But the child did not notice.
And the child shouted,
"God show me a miracle!"
And a life was born
But the child did not know.
So the child cried out in despair,
"Touch me God, and let me know you are here!"
Whereupon God reached down
touched the child.
But the child brushed the butterfly away
And walked away unknowingly.
ORIGIN OF THIS THOUGHTFUL POEM IS UNKNOWN.
I think...This child grew up and turned into our hero JIM from "God will help me"
NOTE: Please scroll down for "God will help me"

GOD WILL HELP ME!
Jim, who lived near a river was a very religious man.
One day, the river rose over the banks and flooded the town, and Jim was forced to climb onto his porch roof. While
he was sitting there, a man in a boat came along and told Jim to get in the boat with him.
Jim said "No, that's ok. God will take care of me." So, the man in the boat drives off.
The water rose more, so Jim climbed onto his roof. At that time, another boat came along and the person in that one told
Jim to get in. Jim replied, "No, that's ok. God will take care of me." The person in the boat then left.
The water rose even more, and Jim climbed on his chimney. Then a helicopter came and lowered a ladder. The woman in
the helicopter told Jim to climb up the ladder and get in. Jim told her "That's ok." The woman said, "Are you sure?"
Jim said, "Yeah, I'm sure God will take care of me.
Finally, the water rose too high and Jim drowned. Jim went up to Heaven and was face to face with God. Jim said to God
"You told me you would take care of me! What happened?"
God replied "Well, I sent you two boats and a helicopter. What else did you want?"

This joke makes me laugh.But,
I might have ignored God's help many times, I think...
There are so many things we can talk about. Many times we compare ourselves with our friends and others
and when we find
ourselves less than some body we are then jealous of such a person. So I have a simple solution for this. When I find
that one of my friend is more intelligent than me and then I feel that soon I will be jealous of him. So, I should
compare myself with Albert Einstein instead of him. This way, immediately I upgraded my self in better position. So I
will be jealous of Albert Einstein and nobody else as far as intelligence is concerned.
Similarly I should be jealous of Bill Gates and nobody else as far as wealth is concerned.
So I will be never jealous of any body whom I know because nobody is close even to these great personalities.
Another thing comes to my mind: When things go wrong as in case of Murphy's law, we are worried and w
hen things go really bad we are very much depressed. If I am in a such a terrible situation I think that I should compare
my situation with the situation of the greatest warrior Arjuna. Even though Lord Krishna was his friend and savior,
Arjun had to face the greatest hardships and humiliation. As soon as I think in this way, my terrible situation becomes bearable.
Now the greatest question for me: These are just my thoughts and there is no action from me. So I could
not get rid of
jealousy and when things go really bad I am very much depressed from time to time. So help me GOD.
