When you feel tired in the afternoon, Stop that Cuppa &  pick up a cucumber. They provide a quick pick-me-up that can last for hours.

Pests in your Flower bed???  Place a few slices in a small Aluminium  tin . The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum to give off a scent undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the area.

Cucumber works great on wrinkles too  & Believe me you need not limit to any amount gorge on it.

Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache …..? Eat a few cucumber slices before going to bed after that  drink . Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish essential nutrients the body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium, avoiding both a hangover and headache!!

Stressed out and don’t have time for massage, facial or visit to the spa? Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water, the chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber with react with the boiling water and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, relaxing aroma that has been shown the reduce stress in new mothers and college students during final exams.

Just finish a business lunch and realize you don’t have gum or mints? Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath, the photochemical will kill the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath.

Once Buddha was walking from one town to another town with a few of his followers. While they were traveling, they happened to pass a lake. They stopped there and Buddha told one of his disciples, “I am thirsty. Do get me some water from that lake there.  The disciple walked up to the lake.

When he reached it, he noticed that right at that moment, a bullock cart started crossing through the lake.As a result, the water became very muddy, very turbid. The disciple thought, “How can I give this muddy water to Buddha to drink!”  

So he came back and told Buddha, “The water in there is very muddy. I don’t think it is fit to drink.” After about half an hour, again  Buddha asked the same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some water to drink.

The disciple obediently went back to the lake.  This time too he found that the lake was muddy. He returned and informed Buddha about the same.

After sometime, again Buddha asked the same disciple to go back.The disciple reached the lake to find the lake absolutely clean and clear with pure water in it. The mud had settled down and the water above it looked fit to be had. So he collected some water in a pot and brought it to Buddha.

Buddha looked at the water, and then he looked up at the disciple and said,” See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be…. and the mud settled down on its own – and you got clear water.  Your mind is also like that! When it is disturbed, just let it be.

Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don’t have to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless.

He said, “It is effortless.”  Having ‘Peace of Mind’ is not a strenuous job; it is an effortless process!

 
You need not bother OR get angry on the cause of disturbance OR show your agitation on anything else Or do anything about it at all….. Just acknowledge and LET it BE.

It will be EFFORTLESS !! 

Cheeeriooo

“Apologizing does not mean that you are wrong and the other one is right…It simply means that you value the relationship much more than your ego …”

So Go on… Say ” Sorry” … You gain & that means a lot to you!!

Cheers.
