An Actual Experiment On Eight Monkey Conducted By U.K

This is reportedly based on an actual experiment conducted in the U.K.

Put eight monkeys in a room. In the middle of the room is a ladder, leading to a bunch of bananas hanging from a hook on the ceiling.

Each time a monkey tries to climb the ladder, all the monkeys are sprayed with ice water, which makes them miserable. Soon enough, whenever a monkey attempts to climb the ladder, all of the other monkeys, not wanting to be sprayed, set upon him and beat him up. Soon, none of the eight monkeys ever attempts to climb the ladder.

One of the original monkeys is then removed, and a new monkey is put in the room. Seeing the bananas and the ladder, he wonders why none of the other monkeys are doing the obvious. But undaunted, he immediately begins to climb the ladder.

All the other monkeys fall upon him and beat him silly. He has no idea why.

However, he no longer attempts to climb the ladder.

A second original monkey is removed and replaced. The newcomer again attempts to climb the ladder, but all the other monkeys hammer the crap out of him.

This includes the previous new monkey, who, grateful that he’s not on the receiving end this time, participates in the beating because all the other monkeys are doing it. However, he has no idea why he’s attacking the new monkey.

One by one, all the original monkeys are replaced. Eight new monkeys are now in the room. None of them have ever been sprayed by ice water. None of them attempt to climb the ladder. All of them will enthusiastically beat up any new monkey who tries, without having any idea why.

And that is how traditions, religions and systems get established and followed.

Think twice before following a tradition,religion or system blindly .. it would make more sense if u get your own understanding to it…

long.. but worth a read

The Lovely Little Girl With A Bitten Apple

Always-Delay-Judgement

Always Delay Judgement. A very worth file read!

A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.
Her mum came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile: “my sweetie, could you give your mum one of your two apples?”

The girl looked up at her mum for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.

The mum felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mum, and said: mummy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgement.

Give others the privilege to explain themselves. What you see may not be the reality. Never conclude for others.Which is why we should never only focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first.

Those who like to pay the bill, do so not because they are loaded, but because they value friendship above money.

Those who take the initiative at work, do so not because they are stupid but because they understand the concept of responsibility.

Those who apologise first after a fight, do so not because they are wrong but because they value the people around them.

Those who are willing to help you, do so not because they owe you any thing but because they see you as a true friend.

Those who often text you, do so not because they have nothing better to do but because you are in their heart.

One day, all of us will get separated from each other; we will miss our conversations of everything & nothing; the dreams that we had. Days will pass by, months, years, until this contact becomes rare…

One day our children will see our pictures and ask “Who are these people? “And we will smile with invisible tears because a heart is touched with a strong word and you will say: “IT WAS THEM THAT I HAD THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE WITH”

Make Your Life Colorful!

No Matter What, I Will Always Be There For You! – FATHER

This is a True Story based on earthquake in 1989.

In 1989, an 8.2 (on Richter scale) earthquake almost flattened Armenia, killing over 30,000 people in less than four minutes. In the midst of chaos, a father left his home and rushed to the school where he had left his son that morning. Only to discover that the building had been totally destroyed.

The father remembered the promise he had made to his son

‘no matter what, I will always be there for you!’

Tears began to fill his eyes as he looked at the pile of debris that once was his son’s school.

He began to concentrate on where he walked his son to class that morning. Remembering that his son’s classroom would be in a particular spot, he rushed there and started digging through the rubble.

Other parents who had gathered told him that he was wasting his time and energy, but the father would only say, “Are you going to help me?” and carry on digging.

The fire chief showed up and tried to pull him off the debris saying, “You are in danger. We will take care of it. You go home.” To which the Armenian father’s response was, “Are you going to help me find my son?”

The police came and urged the man to give up. But the distraught father courageously proceeded alone, because he needed to know for himself ‘is my boy alive or is he dead? He dug and pulled back boulder after boulder for thirty-eight hours non-stop and suddenly when he was pulling a boulder he heard his son’s voice.

“ARMOND, are you there?” He responded, “Dad, it is me, Dad! I told my friends that if my Dad is alive we would be saved! I told them you had promised me — no matter what, I will always be there for you! You did it, Dad!”

“What is going on there son?” the father asked. “We are fourteen of us, Dad. We are scared, hungry, thirsty, and thankful you are here. When the building collapsed, it made a wedge, like a triangle, and it saved fourteen of us!” The son explained.

“Come out my boy!” “No Dad! Let the other kids out first, cause I know you will get me! No matter what, /i know you’ll be there for me!”

The fireman, the police and the crowd could not believe what they saw! The man whom they had considered as traumatized with anxiety and fear was actually responding to love and was pulling one boy after another until he pulled out and embraced the 14th boy, his son Armond!

Moral: Indeed genuine love can never be understood by human measurements. God cannot be measured, God is Love! If human love can at times give us an inkling of what love is all about, what marvel God’s love for us must be! Love is patient, love is kind. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. Love never fails..

Write Your Worries In The Sand, Carve Your Blessings in Stone

This story tells of two friends who were walking through the desert. At some point in the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face.

The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand “TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.”

They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one, who had been slapped, got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him.

After the friend recovered from nearly drowning, he wrote on a stone: “TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE.”

The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand, but now you write on a stone… why?”

The other friend replied “When someone hurts us, we should write it in sand… where the winds of forgiveness can erase it from view. But, when someone does something good for us, we should engrave it in stone… where no wind can ever remove it.”

SO, WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE SAND, AND FORGET THEM.

BUT CARVE YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE, TO BE REMEMBERED.

Two Lasting Gifts – Mother is Wings and Father is Root

When I was a kid, my mom liked to cook  food and every now & then I remember she used to cook for us.

One night, when she had made dinner after a long hard day at work , mom placed  a plate of bread jam and extremely burned toast infront of my a dad. I was waiting to see if anyone noticed the burnt toast.

But Dad just ate his toast and asked me how was my day at school. I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember I heard Mom apologizing to dad for burning the toast. And I’ll never forget what he said: “Honey, I love burned toast.” Later that night,

I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his toast burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, Your mamma put in a long hard day at work today and she was really tired. And besides, A burnt toast never hurts anyone but harsh words do!

You know, life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people. I’m not the best at hardly anything. I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else.

What I’ve learned over the years, is that learning to accept each others faults. This is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationships.

Life is not a Sharp Knife to cut all those Bad Memories. But Life is a Needle to Weave Golden Thread of Sweet Memories…

Love your Life … Live your Life…

It’s the only one you have…

It has an expiry date..

Love it… Enjoy it…

SACRIFICE- Make Sacrifices for a Better Future

I’m searching for some papers for class. When all of a sudden I find some throwback pictures of my family. I’m distracting myself from searching for the paper.

I’m looking through the picture I find a picture of my mom with my grandma. I saw how happy they both looked. It’s one of my moms favorite picture.

As I’m going searching for more pictures. My mom treasures all the pictures she has with her family. Since it’s the only way she can see them even though the photos are old.

I see some that we taken when my mom was leaving. All of a sudden I remember what she told me and my family she had to do to get where she is right now.

She began telling me the story with her getting married with my dad. She got pregnant and she was talking to my grandma and grandpa about moving. She said she wanted to move to the US for a better life.

My grandpa didn’t agree with her to move to the US. She can see him turn like a red tomato of how angry he was. My moms stomach was getting a little bigger. She felt like a big round ball. After my dad, mom, and grandma convinced him, he let her move.

My mom was happy but was sad that she had to leave them behind. She needed to make a sacrifice for her and her kid.

When they first got to Utah they felt like if they were in a whole different world. She told me it was way different from what she expected it to be. She felt like she didn’t belong there. They moved in with my dad’s brother since they didn’t have money.

My mom started working at a restaurant with my dad everyday. A year later got pregnant again and had me. After both working hard they earned money to buy their own house. Soon my mom started feeling lonely without her family.

My dad told he it was for the best and told her to think about the future.She said it was fitting in with people that made it hard because she didn’t know any English. What made her stayed was she saw us happy. She saw us getting a better education and that made her feel better.

I snap back into reality I have a cheesy smile on my face. I go to the room where my mom is. I’m thanking her for all the things she’s done for me. I don’t know where I would be if my mom didn’t make that decision.

Even though I know my mom misses her parents and since she can’t go see her parents we’re planning to go this year to Mexico. I remind her that at the end of the day it was all worth it. I like making her proud for the good grades I get. I’m proud to call her my mom she went from knowing nothing about English to knowing a lot more than she could think of.

I can never thank her for all the sacrifices she has made for me. My mom is teaching me to do better for a better future and more opportunities.

With this experience in general I’m learning that in life you have to make sacrifices for a better future.
