Hark! how the bells Sweet silver bells All seem to say, “Throw cares away.” Christmas is here Bringing good cheer To young and old Meek and the bold
Ding, dong, ding, dong That is their song With joyful ring All caroling One seems to hear Words of good cheer From everywhere Filling the air
Oh how they pound, Raising the sound, O’er hill and dale, Telling their tale, Gaily they ring While people sing Songs of good cheer Christmas is here Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas
On, on they send On without end Their joyful tone To every home.
One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, and he was very hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house.
However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk.
He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.”
Howard Kellysaid, “Then I thank you from my heart.”
Year’s later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled by a rare Disease . They finally sent her to the big city private Hospital for specialists to study her case.
Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. After a long struggle, the battle was won.
Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room.
She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all.
Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She began to read the following words:
“Paid in full with one glass of milk”
Signed, Dr. Howard Kelly.
ram’s footnote :-
Kindness is our True Nature and Also Nature of Divine .
Enlightenment is human’s emergence from self-imposed immaturity.
Immaturity is the inability to use one’s understanding without guidance from another.
“ Have courage to use Your Own Understanding!”–that is the Motto of Enlightenment.
Immanuel Kant (1724-1804)
Most influential philosopherWestern Immanuel Kant contributions to metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and aesthetics have had a profound impact on almost every philosophical movement that followed him…… and even today .
ram’s footnote :-
Wine matures in barrels but Mind immatures in barrels .
These barrels are Barrels of Ego , Knowledge , Power , Nationality , Race , Philosophies , Science , Spirituality, Wisdom and Wealth…….
“ Have courage to use your own understanding!”….. let our own Basic Nature becomes Guru and Guide .
” Love All” is our Basic Nature and True Maturity of Mind
Enlightenment 360º is the True Maturity of Mind .

Sapere aude is the Latin phrase meaning “Dare to know”; and also is loosely translated as “Dare to be wise”, or even more loosely as “Dare to think for yourself!” Originally used in the First Book of Letters (20 BCE), by the Roman poet Horace, the phrase Sapere aude became associated with the Age of Enlightenment .
“Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. is a duty with an attitude of Nurse and happens in Time dimension of Body and as Time is a linear dimension stretched between past and future so stress is it’s basic character .
After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water.” is a worship of Work with an attitude of Mother and happens in Timeless dimension of Soul and as it is a vertical dimension of Now so Bliss is it’s basic Character.
Enlightenment is …… Yoga of Time Body and Timeless Soul so before Enlightenment is an Effort and After Enlightenment is an Effortless Effort.
