It’s Not Brain Surgery Meaning: A task that’s easy to accomplish, a thing lacking complexity. It also did not take any Rocket science. As a MOC I just forgot to ask the time I am allotted and exceeded it. Shucks ! 🙂
Give a Man a Fish Meaning: It’s better to teach a person how to do something than to do that something for them. And have a queue of beggars in front of your house every day. I wonder how they manage in Hyderabad where for Asthma patients this family grows fish of a particular type and push it down the patient’s throat to cure him permanently while chanting Mantras.
Eat My Hat Meaning: Having confidence in a specific outcome; being almost sure about something. I spoke passionately, a great deal about my passions and lost all sense of time. God knows where the energy and flow came from.
Jaws of Death Meaning: Being in a dangerous or very deadly situation. No. NOt happening. Seems that with change in starts Achhe Din are coming soon.
Wouldn’t Harm a Fly Meaning: Nonviolent; someone who is mild or gentle. Yes that’s what I have become. I am now advising the people on the ground. The Paan wala, Chai wala, Messuers, Shoe polish wala, vegetable vendor etc. etc. They atleast give me the due respect of a mentor. 🙂
While conversing with the mandali later that same day, Baba observed:
Why do you suffer from loss of memory? When someone receives a sudden shock, he is likely to lose his memory. His mind goes blank and its past link with things related to it is snapped. Sanskaras are there in the mind, but because of the snapping of the mental link, one does not recognize anyone or anything. He even forgets his near and dear ones.
Similarly, at the time of death a great shock is felt, resulting in loss of memory. One completely forgets his past life. Suppose in the past life you were a boy or a girl, good or bad, but in the present life you have no knowledge of it because the link has snapped. During death, the mind receives such a shock that it affects all the impressions. When again a child is born, the effect of the shock is dissipated, the mind opens, the link restarts and life begins functioning. The impressions that were covered are now uncovered and are used up in actions.
It is all according to your impressions of illusion, or the dream, that these are there. The present life is nothing but the result of the actions of the past life. Due to loss of memory, you have forgotten those impressions and feel like it is starting a fresh life, but in fact you are continuing the old life. As the sun rises daily in the East, the sanskaras of the past life are spent in this life.
Past impressions of the mind, when they turn into actions in the present life, create new sanskaras. Mind is full of sanskaras, and past sanskaras are to be expended. But alongside, new sanskaras crop up. Due to his past sanskaras, Kishan Singh has to take down what I am saying now. While writing, he thinks that whatever Baba is saying he is writing. This thought does not belong to past sanskaras and thus he creates new impressions. Mind is freed and is bound, and it binds itself by freeing itself.
This goes on and on until annihilation of the mind is achieved and liberation gained.

See the looking for the God,
I think he’s angry at the petard.
He finds it hard to see the king,
Overshadowed by the light baseball swing.
Who is that flapping near the beach?
I think she’d like to eat the broadbeach.
She is but a quiet musician,
Admired as she sits upon a demolition.
Her mortal car is just an ace,
It needs no gas, it runs on steeplechase.
She’s not alone she brings a kitten,
a pet spider, and lots of briton.
The spider likes to chase a snail,
Especially one that’s in the voicemail.
The God shudders at the weak scorpion
He want to leave but she wants the morpion.
t’s Always More Than a Game
“Somewhere inside, we hear a voice. It leads us in the direction of who we wish to become. But it is up to us whether or not to follow.” -Pat Tillman
The young man never paid attention to the numbers on the scoreboard. The only thing he cared about was the play at hand. As long as he made the sacrifices necessary to make the right play, the score would take care of itself.
To him, it was always more than a game. It was never about the touchdowns or the tackles. It was about the men to the right and left of him…

The Story (continued)
…He was drafted to the NFL in 2000, and became the team’s strong safety. At the end of the season, he had broken the franchise record for most tackles in a single season.
Despite quick success at the NFL level, he did not let his success jeopardize his morals or his ethics.
On September 11, 2001, planes struck both towers of the World Trade Center. Another crashed into the Pentagon. And another went down in western Pennsylvania. These were the most horrific terrorist attacks ever made on U.S. soil.
Many young men and women took notice — especially the star safety of the Arizona Cardinals.
He enlisted in the U.S. Army.
His family was shocked and the media bewildered at why he would walk away from millions of dollars to pursue service as an elite Army Ranger.
His brother joined him in his call to serve and both deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. On the evening of April 22, 2004, in the rugged terrain of eastern Afghanistan, the star safety’s unit was ambushed. He provided covering fire for his fellow soldiers as they escaped. In the night, the gunfight, and fog of war, the fear of every veteran came upon him.
Not death at the hands of the enemy.
But death at the hands of misguided friendly fire.
The star safety and hero is of course… Pat Tillman.
Those who serve in our military know it is not about glory, medals, or publicized heroism.
It’s about purpose, sacrifice, and service on behalf of their nation and on behalf of freedom.
And for those that loved Pat Tillman, they knew that what he pursued was always more than just a game to him.
Pat’s legacy lives on through the Pat Tillman Foundation, an organization giving military veterans and spouses who embody Pat’s principles the tools and support needed to become leaders, no matter how they choose to serve.
So as you go out into the world today, remember that in every moment you have a chance to put it all on the line. And in every new moment, you have another chance to be courageous and make the choices that weaker versions of yourself are too fearful to make. So choose wisely. But don’t be afraid to choose to become a legend.
