A SURPRISE LESSON FROM SQUEEZING AN ORANGE
As told by the late Dr. Wayne W. Dyer:
I was preparing to speak at an I Can Do It conference and I decided to bring an orange on stage with me as a prop for my lecture. I opened a conversation with a bright young fellow of about twelve who was sitting in the front row.
“If I were to squeeze this orange as hard as I could, what would come out?” I asked him.
He looked at me like I was a little crazy and said, “Juice, of course.”
“Do you think apple juice could come out of it?”
“No!” he laughed.
“What about grapefruit juice?”
“What would come out of it?”
“Orange juice, of course.”
“Why? Why when you squeeze an orange does orange juice come out?”
He may have been getting a little exasperated with me at this point.
“Well, it’s an orange and that’s what’s inside.”
I nodded. “Let’s assume that this orange isn’t an orange, but it’s you. And someone squeezes you, puts pressure on you, says something you don’t like, offends you. And out of you comes anger, hatred, bitterness, fear. Why? The answer, as our young friend has told us, is because that’s what’s inside.”
It’s one of the great lessons of life. What comes out when life squeezes you? When someone hurts or offends you? If anger, pain and fear come out of you, it’s because that’s what’s inside. It doesn’t matter who does the squeezing—your mother, your brother, your children, your boss, the government. If someone says something about you that you don’t like, what comes out of you is what’s inside. And what’s inside is up to you, it’s your choice.
When someone puts the pressure on you and out of you comes anything other than love, it’s because that’s what you’ve allowed to be inside. Once you take away all those negative things you don’t want in your life and replace them with love, you’ll find yourself living a highly functioning life.
Here’s an orange for you!🍊
Mr Chhagan Bhujbal arrested for trying to convert Rs 800 crores of corruption money into white by creating 60 fake companies when he was a minister.
I wish in jail they give him only currency notes to eat and nothing else….
While slowly getting to know this city I notice some tid bits about the city which appear interesting to me. Having lived in Delhi I may say that this city doesnt have the “loud mouthness” of Delhi. Listen to any random conversation, interact with bus conductors, auto drivers, small vendors and it becomes more apparent.
Spotted few sparrows today and felt happy. Mostly get to see crows which are quite plenty as they feast on the garbage scattered around the bis (more outside than inside).
About names of the various places, to name a few Vapi (rhymes with paapi (sinner)), bhandup (reminds of bhand), chakala…mulund may remind you of various words based on your creativity 🙂 but then the fact that the only good sounding name Bombay was changed to Mumbai 🙂 🙂

Having severe headache on one side of temple.; Diagnose the cause as not taking any tea today which i regularly take twice a day..
How mundane addictions (if my diagnosis is correct which has fair high probability based on past experience) have power to control the life. Thinking of quitting tea altogether even if it hurts in short run…:)
