Contents of your suitcase
A man died, when he realized it, he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.
God said, “Alright son it’s time to go.”
Surprised the man responded, “Now? So soon? I had lot of plans..”
“I’m sorry but it’s time to go.”
“What do you have in that suitcase?” the man asked.
God answered, “Your belongings.”
“My belongings? You mean my things, my clothes and my money?”
God answered, “Those things were not yours they belonged to the earth.”
“Is it my memories?” the man asked.
God answered, “Those never belonged to you. They belonged to Time.”
“Is it my talents?”
God answered, “Those were never yours. They belonged to circumstances.”
“Is it my friends and family?”
God answered, “I’m sorry they were never yours. They belonged to the path.”
“Is it my wife and son?”
God answered, “They were never yours. They belonged to your heart.”
“Is it my body?”
God answered, “It was never yours. It belonged to the dust.”
“Is it my soul?”
God answered, “No, that’s mine.”
Full of fear, the man took the suitcase from God and opened it just to find out the suitcase was empty. With a tear coming down his cheek the man said, “I never had anything?”
God answered, “That is correct, every moment you lived were only yours. Life is just a moment. A moment that belongs to you.”
For this reason enjoy this time while you have it. Don’t let anything that you think you own stop you from doing so. Live now. Live your life. Don’t forget to be happy, that is the only thing that matters. Material things and everything else that you fought for stay here, you can’t take anything.

- SHRI B.V.TALIM SCULPTING BABA'S IDOL -
~ A MIRACLE ~
- Swami Sri Sai Saranananda -
- THE FIRST ORIGINAL IDOL OF SAI BABA -
Once a sculpture in a village made a beautiful idol of a goddess and thought of selling it at a good price in the city. So he loaded the idol on his donkey and started towards the city. When he was going through the village, the villagers bowed in front of the idol as it looked like a real goddess. Whichever street he crossed, a crowd would bow in front of the idol. But a strange thing happened. The donkey, which was carrying the idol, thought that he was special and that was the reason why people were bowing to him. He was thrilled with his new-found respect.
Soon the sculpture returned after selling the idol. While he was crossing the village, the donkey stopped in the middle of the road, expecting a warm welcome. But nobody paid attention to him. The donkey felt insulted and started braying, so much so, that the villagers drove him away. The same mistake, what the donkey did, is what most of us do.
When we are on the divine path of self realization, with God’s grace, a glow enters our demeanor and we stand out of the crowd. People respect such persons and often bow in respect. But we should realize that people are bowing not to us but to the glimpse of God whom they realize resides within us. So the credit of this respect goes solely to God, not to us. If we start taking the credit, we cross the thin line of demarcation and enter in to an area of false ego, which God dislikes most.

REGISTERED LETTERS.. DO NOT SIGN…
Something to ponder about when receiving registered letter.
How often do we take the trouble of opening the letter before signing the Registered AD (Acknowledgement Due) Letter acknowledgement slip?
Read to find out more.... in future be cautious.
Open letters BEFORE signing to acknowledge receipt of the Registered AD (Acknowledgement Due) Letter..!!!
Folks, the next time the postman or courier guy comes to deliver a Registered AD (Acknowledgement Due) Letter, a Certificate Of Posting Letter or Parcel, do the following:
a) Check who is it from..??
b) If you do not know the source, reject it.
If you accept it without knowing the source, the following has happened and can happen to you too…
There have been cases where lawyers have done the following:
a) Mailed empty / sealed Registered AD (Acknowledgement Due) Letter to people on behalf of their clients for some court case matter.
b) The Registered AD (Acknowledgement Due) Letter either, consisted of brochures promoting sale of new real estate or some car model or just an empty A-4 size paper inside.
In normal circumstances, when one receives an empty letter or junk mail, they will just tear it up and throw it away,
BUT, here lies the danger:
a) You signed the Registered AD (Acknowledgement Due) Letter acknowledgement card and it is returned to the law firm. That signed Registered AD (Acknowledgement Due) Letter acknowledgement card is proof that a letter was delivered and confirms the delivery and can/will be used against you in court.
b) Same applies to the so very convenient "CERTIFICATE OF POSTING" mail.
When the grace period for you to respond is over, they quietly go to court and show proof that a Registered AD (Acknowledgement Due) Letter was sent to you as a reminder and you did not bother to defend it and thus convince the court officials and get a judgment against you.
Next another Registered AD (Acknowledgement Due) Letter is sent to you asking for damages approved by the court, or just another empty envelope and you discard it once more and this time the white collar crook will go to the court quietly and seek the assistance of the court to seal/attach your property to recover the amount awarded by the court and soon the court bailiff will be at your door step to execute the order.
What happens next..?
You frantically call your relatives in disbelief and seek legal advice. You are lost not knowing what's happening.
Anxiety, stress, palpitation, sleepless nights cannot be compensated as this is a reality check. You engage a lawyer's firm; spend a many thousand rupees for paper work and an appeal to the higher court to set aside this matter… and also spend several days in court trying to prove your innocence.
What are your rights?
a) You have every right to reject any mail / parcel that comes from unknown sources, be it a debt collection company, law firm or some individual.
b) You have every right to ask the postman or the person delivering it to open the mail and let you see what is inside and the contents of the letter.
c) REJECT IT if you are not comfortable… or ask them to deliver to a law firm that you know.
d) If you have inadvertently signed and collected the empty Registered AD (Acknowledgement Due) Letter/mail, lodge a police report and also report to the bar council… as this will help in your case to protect you… if the matter goes to court.
Eye opener isn't it, crime is no longer just house break-ins and snatch thefts where most of the thieves get a few hundred rupees… BUT these days, the crooks come dressed in suits, so be aware and be smart… or you will end up spending thousands of rupees, many hours spent travelling to court or to your lawyers office, not forgetting the stress, anxiety, sleepless nights, etc.
Do inform ALL your family members and staffs of your firm.
NOT TO SIGN ON BEHALF OF ANYONE… let the postman leave a card, go check at the post office, ask the postman to open and show you what is inside the envelope… or lastly… if you are not comfortable, just reject it… BUT DON'T SIGN WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT IS INSIDE…!!
