The Truth Is........

I got this beautiful message that full of truth from a close friend. It stirred my mind that if you really care then you must shared good things with your loves ones and friends. This close friend of mine lost his wife recently and despite his sorrows never fails to share good things with me. He used to jokes about taking second wife before but then when I asked him now about marrying a new wife he is full of sorrow. He said it was quite difficult to find new person who will understands his predicaments and loves his children as much as loving him. He needs time and many friends are helping out by introducing him suitable candidates. In silence I pray that he will meet a woman that love him and his children for what they are, simple loving people that have no hatred for others but full of love and good deeds.

It's good to reads again the words of George Carlin in the environment we are facing today right here in Malaysia when :-

People talk about love but hated those who differs in opinions and beliefs with them.

People talk about nation building but destroy every value that contributed to the prosperity thus far.

People talk about justice but the minute the law caught on them, justice serve no purpose at all.
People talk about Islamic values but then called their own brothers infidels.
People talk about people power but the minute in power forget about the plight of rakyat.
People talk, talk and talk but never walk the talk.

This is a master piece. If you have not read it take the time to read it now. If you have read it take time to read it again! GEORGE CARLIN (His wife recently died...).Isn't it amazing that George Carlin - comedian of the 70's and 80's - could write something so very eloquent...and so very appropriate.

A Message by George Carlin:

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 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, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

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 a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies
than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the showroom 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 share this insight, or to just hit delete...

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not
going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. An embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the
precious thoughts in your mind.


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

If you don't send this to other people....Who cares?
