محبت آزادی ہے۔ مکمل آزادی۔ حتٰی کہ محبت کے پھندے بھی آزادی ہیں جو شخص بھی اپنے آپ کو محبت کی ڈوری سے باندھ کر محبت کا اسیر ہو جاتا ہے وہ ہمیشہ ہمیشہ کے لیے آزاد ہو جاتا ہے۔ اس لیے میں کہا کرتا ہوں آزادی کی تلاش میں مارے مارے نہ پھرو۔ محبت تلاش نہ کرو۔۔۔۔ آزادی کی تلاش بیسیوں مرتبہ انسان کو انا کے ساتھ باندھ کر اسے نفس کے بندی خانے میں ڈال دیتی ہے۔ محبت کا پہلا قدم اٹھتا ہی اس وقت ہے جب وجود کے اندر سے انا کا بوریا بستر گول ہو جاتا ہے۔ محبت کی تلاش انا کی موت ہے۔ انا کی موت مکمل آزادی ہے۔
In the 25years of my life,i always wonder for those people who sacrifice their life for the sake of others.
Living in such a horrible society where everyone is trying to cut others.Yet Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan managed to brought up the people like Nasrullah Shajji.
Who gave his life for the sake of the future of Pakistan,and drowned in a river of Balakot while saving his student. He set an biggest example of love, respect and devotion.
This is a new life to this prosperous relation between a teacher and student.
Hats offf to you Sir.
One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport . We were
driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking
space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded,
and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car
whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just
smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly.
So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and
sent us to the hospital!’ This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now
call, ‘The Law of the Garbage Truck.’
He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full
of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes
they’ll dump it on you. Don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish
them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other
people at work, at home or on the streets.
The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take
over their day. Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets,
‘Love the people who treat you right..Pray for the ones who don’t.

Six months ago, 55-year-old Billy Ray Harris was homeless. He lived on a street corner in Kansas City, holding out a cup and asking passers-by for spare change. But then, one day, his life changed.
In February, Sarah Darling passed Harris at his usual spot and dropped some change into his cup. But, unbeknownst to her, she also accidentally dropped in her engagement ring. Though Harris considered selling the ring — he got it appraised for $4,000 — he ultimately couldn’t go through with it, and a few days later, he returned the ring to Darling.
As a way to say thank you, Darling and her husband Bill Krejci started a fund to raise money for Harris to help him get his life back on track. “We set a goal for a thousand dollars,” Darling told TODAY in March. “We set it up because a lot of people who had been touched by the story expressed interest in helping Billy Ray.”
The fund raised far more than any of them expected — in just three months, people donated more than $190,000.
Harris talked to a lawyer, who helped him put the money in a trust. Since then, he’s been able to buy a car and even put money down on a house, which he’s fixing up himself.
And that’s not all: After he appeared on TV, his family members, who had not been able to find him for 16 years and had heard rumors he was dead, were able to track him down. They were happily reunited, and Harris is now working on his relationship with them, including nieces and nephews he hadn’t even known existed.
“When I think of the past, I think, thank God that it’s over,” he told TODAY. “I mean, I feel human now.”
And the Kansas City community hasn’t forgotten about Harris and his good deed. “I still see some of the same people,” he says, “but only now, instead of coming up and giving me change, they’re coming up shaking my hand and, you know, saying ‘hey, good job’.”
Since the fateful day that Darling’s ring landed in his cup, Harris’ life has done a 180. “This is what they call the American Dream,” he says. “I want to thank all the people that helped me out. I want them to see where all their efforts, blessings and kindness is going.”
And he has lifelong friends in the couple whose ring he returned.
Krejci and Darling now have a 20-month-old daughter, and they look forward to introducing her to Harris and explaining the role he played in her parents’ life. “I’ve talked to other mothers about this,” Darling says. “It gives [other moms] a real tangible story of really teaching kind of the difference between what’s wrong and what’s right.”
Harris isn’t only good luck for the couple — he also appears to be good luck for the local baseball team! Krejci and Darling have taken Harris to six Kansas City Royals games, including one for Krejci’s recent birthday, and every single time the home team won.
“Overall, it just makes me feel good,” Darling says of the generous outpouring of support for Harris. “A lot of people came together to change this person’s life when he is someone who really deserves that.”

Come live with me and be my love, And we will all the pleasures prove That valleys, groves, hills, and fields, Woods or steepy mountain yields.
And we will sit upon the rocks, Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks, By shallow rivers to whose falls Melodious birds sing madrigals.
And I will make thee beds of roses And a thousand fragrant posies, A cap of flowers, and a kirtle Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle;
A gown made of the finest wool Which from our pretty lambs we pull; Fair lined slippers for the cold, With buckles of th purest gold;
A belt of straw and ivy buds, With coral clasps and amber studs: And if these pleasures may thee move, Come live with me and be my love.
The shepherds’ swains shall dance and sing For thy delight each May morning: If these delights thy mind may move, Then live with me and be my love.
