Working with concentration gains appreciation!

A peasant misplaced his wrist watch one day
While he was doing some work in his shed bay!

The watch was presented by his wife as a gift
He searched everywhere inside with his eye sight!

Since he could not find it, he became upset
He called the young boys playing in the field!

Asked them to search, promised suitable reward
Many children went inside the shed and searched!

Searched the entire premises and returned
saying their inability they could not find!

But, one shrewd young boy requested one more chance
Went inside and came in a short while with the watch!

The peasant, with surprise, asked him, “How did you find it? ”
He respectfully responded what he did wisely to find it!

He replied, “Simple! I sat and observed quietly and keenly,
I heard the ‘tick tack’ sound and found the watch immediately!

If any work is done in quiet mood with concentration,
You can perform it successfully and gain appreciation!

If you practice meditation in the early morning,
You can find out the brain shrewdly functioning!

    We know not what we really miss
    As tick tock, tick tock, the clock ticks
    And some day the bell will ring
    And it will be too late for regrets to fling
    Of life missed in careless thoughts and things

    Good work Doctor - keep on at it (Report) Reply

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,

The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
