An article on Recession...

Money has no memory. Experience has. You will never know what the total
cost of your education was, but for a lifetime you will recall and
relive the memories of schools and colleges. Few years from now, you
will forget the amount you paid to settle the hospitalization bill, but
will ever cherish having saved your mother's life or the life you get to
live with the just born. You won't remember the cost of your honeymoon,
but to the last breath remember the experiences of the bliss of
togetherness. Money has no memory. Experience has.

Good times and bad times, times of prosperity and times of poverty,
times when the future looked so secure and times when you didn't know
from where the tomorrow will come... life has been in one way or the
other a roller-coaster ride for everyone. Beyond all that abundance and
beyond all that deprivation, what remains is the memory of experiences.
Sometimes the wallet was full... sometimes even the pocket was empty.
There was enough and you still had reasons to frown. There wasn't enough
and you still had reasons to smile. Today, you can look back with tears
of gratitude for all the times you had laughed together, and also look
back with a smile at all the times you cried alone. All in all, life
filled you with experiences to create a history of your own self, and
you alone can remember them all.

The first time you balanced yourself on your cycle without support...
The first time she said 'yes' and it was two years since you proposed...
The first cry... the first steps... the first word... the first kiss...
all of your child... The first gift you bought for your parents and the
first gift your daughter gave you... The first award... the first public
appreciation... the first stage performance... And the list is
endless... Experiences, with timeless memory... No denying that anything
that's material cost money, but the fact remains the cost of the
experience will be forgotten, but the experience never.

So, what if it's economic recession? Let it be, but let there not be a
recession to the quality of your life.
You can still take your parents,
if not on a pilgrimage, at least to the local temple. You can still play
with your children, if not on an international holiday, at least in the
local park. It doesn't cost money to lie down or to take a loved one
onto your lap. Nice time to train the employees, create leadership
availability and be ready for the wonderful times when they arrive. Hey!
Aspects like your health, knowledge development and spiritual growth are
not economy dependent.

Time will pass... economy will revive... currency will soon be in
current... and in all this; I don't want you to look back and realize
you did nothing but stayed in gloom. Recession can make you lose out on
money. Let it not make you lose out on experiences... If you are not
happy with what you have, no matter how much more you have, you will
still not be happy.
