One can Forgive but can one erase the bitterness ?

Forgive

When you forgive you don’t change the past but you do change the future.

Technically majority of us try to forgive, but 100 % of us forget that,we have forgiven, and somewhere the unpleasantness, haunts us for sometime, after all we are human beings !!

Some quotes…….

“Forgive other,not because thy deserve forgiveness,but because you deserve peace.” Jonathan Lockwood Huie

“It’s not an easy journey, to get to a place where you forgive people.But it is such a powerful place,because it frees you” Tyler Perry

Forgiveness releases the burden of a heavy heart Mathew 6:14-15

“Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting.” William Arthur Ward

“As long as you don’t forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy a rent-free space in your mind.” Isabelle Holland

When you forgive,you do not erase the memory.You simply choose to forgive to free yourself from the bitterness.

Thank you

If the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body….then only the left-handed people are in their Right Minds !!! – unknown

If you closely observe the above Photograph, you notice that some discussion happening among the six people, and if you dig further you will be surprised to note that 5 people among the 6, have raised their left hand ( except the person wearing red shirt ). No idea what is happening at that moment.Incidentally notice that,dominance of red color .ie Red color shirt,red color bag,two red colored motor bikes in the back ground

“NATURE IS PAINTING FOR US,DAY AFTER DAY,PICTURES OF INFINITE BEAUTY” John Ruskin

untitled (1 of 1)-63

I wonder if clouds ever look down on us and say: “Hey look.That one is shaped like an idiot”

Mother Nature is always wonderful to watch…….if only one has time,inclination and patience to watch.

Seriously talking, how many of us look up to watch the sky and the way clouds are formed at that particular moment ? Some even may say ….so what is so great ??

In the above photo,you would have noticed the clouds. See how they are arranged,with the lovely blue color background as if the Nature has used the brush strokes on the canvas.

Look up to the sky,watch the cloud formation or disintegration and enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature .Remember it is the greatest free show by Mother Nature !!

untitled (1 of 1)-64

By cloud watching one can avoid boredom,since clouds are never exactly the same.

What is that caught your eyes in this photograph ?

Blue sky,white clouds,green leaves,ripened mangoes

I am sure other than the  beautiful  blue sky ,nothing you would have made out.

Now have a close look.

Blue sky,White Clouds,Green leaves,Ripened Mangoes,few parakeets…

Now read this quote and tell me what all you could admire because of your eyes.

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin

air a miracle.

But I think the real miracle is not to

walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on

earth.

Every day we are engaged in a miracle which

we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds,

green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our

own two eyes. All is a miracle.”

Soulmate- True or Just an Illusion ?

Soulmate

“True love is finding your soulmate in your best friend”      Faye Hall

It’s a 3.9 minute read.

I am giving you Seven theories regarding the topic ‘SOULMATE’.
Which one as per you is more accurate and near to truth and a fact indeed ? Or you feel it’s unrealistic and falsehood and just bogus  and even fraud committed on the gulliable!!

Please guide me. I am as confused as anybody else.
1.Soulmate does not exist.It’s for professional POETS,who love to exaggerate the existence of Soulmate in their poetic style,laced with honey traces.
2.Soulmate exists.Yes.But only in ones dreams ! It’s impossible in this world to have a mirror image personality (100% ),scientifically !
3.Soulmates do exist because of synchronisation of the individual’s flaws.

“I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.” ―Lisa Kleypas

Source-thoughtcatalog.com

4.The following theory stresses the point that age is immaterial in soulmate relationship.

“A soulmate is not necessarily a lover or your life partner. A soulmate can be anyone in your life who has a great positive influence on you. Every single person that we deem to be “significant” truly is exactly that, for their vibrational essence is blending with ours and together we are creating a unique energy. It is believed that the soul radiates all about the physical body, what some refer to as an aura. When you connect with another person spiritually and become completely open and trusting with that individual, your two souls begin to flow together. Should such a deep bond to be formed, it is said you have found your soulmate. We are all joined in an ancient and eternal union with humanity that cut across all barriers of time, convention, philosophy and definition. When you are blessed with a soulmate, you have arrived at that most sacred place: home. This is a place so sacred that you open up completely to your soulmate. A soulmate can be a guru, a parent, a friend or your lover”

credits Kurian’s Soul-mate

 

5. “Someday,someone will walk into your life and make you realize,why it never worked out with any one else” Anonymous

The above quote gives, one some confidence,but One is not sure how long to wait,say 1 year,10 years,30 years,50 years or till death. Waiting for the soulmate

6.Twin Flames

Twin flames is defined as the mirror image of each other .

It is said twin flames have one soul divided into two bodies.

Some say, twin flames description is exclusively limited to romantic relationship unlike soul mates.

Even they go to the extent of telling that Twin flames have physical,mental, spiritual and emotional connections.

“People who are meant to be together will always find their way back to each other.They might take detours in life,but they are never lost.” Christina Silverio

7. Finally you have another theory which stresses that you just sit where you belong and your soulmate reaches you at the time,when you are ready.

And in this situation one is not sure what time  one is said to be ready !

You are not supposed to go out and find Love.Love will find you when you are ready. Suzy Kassem

So my friends ,what are your thoughts on this subject ?

Can you enlighten me ?

“Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive”. Elbert Hubbard

Life Under pressure

“If the problem can be solved why worry? 

If the problem cannot be solved worrying will do you no good.” 

Santideva.

Why you think there is a constant pressure on your life ?

Is it possible to let the steam out and lead a better  peaceful and contended  life ?

What are all the ways you think you are getting pressure even on your routine day-to-day life ? Let us discuss.

Family pressure

You want to do something you like but the family members advising you otherwise.You have two choices,either go ahead and do what you wanted to do or listen to your family.

The emotional tactic adopted by family members is crucial in influencing your thoughts.

Solution– Since you are grown up ,you can take your own well-meant decisions.

I feel emotional pressure by the family members is a kind of  ‘blackmail’.

Social pressure

It is defined as the influence that is exerted on a person or groups.It can be argument,persuasion and conformity and demands.

Solution- Develop self confidence and mingle with people who accept you as you are.  ( Like minded )

Peer Pressure

Peer pressure is the direct influence on people by peers, or the effect on an individual who gets encouraged to follow their peers by changing their attitudes, values or behaviors to conform to those of the influencing group or individual.

You will fall prey to peer pressure because you want to fit in .The peer can be your friend,classmate or colleague.

Solution– Be bold,think of the consequences,say a polite ‘thank you’ and be selective.

Our own tendencies

Author Gretchen Rubin has built a model called Four Tendencies Framework namely

1.Upholders.

2.Questioners.

3.Obligers.

4.Rebels.

She says that the four tendencies are responsible as to why we act and why we don’t act.

These tendencies can create pressure on oneself.

Solution– Change your tendencies.As simple as that.

You can even take the quiz of Gretchen Rubin here to know what personality you belong and how much pressure you are facing in your life.Click the link

Anger is one letter short of Danger

Anger

You will not be punished for your anger,you will be punished by your anger                                                                                  Buddha                                                                                          

Anger is defined as “a string feeling of annoyance,displeasure or hostility.”

Holding on to Anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. Buddha

I am not  here giving  the various reasons as to why one becomes angry or the types of anger.

All that I wish is to follow the following quote whenever  you become angry.

“Anger is like a ball of fire,

but if you swallow it,

It’s sweeter than Honey.”

Peep or Peek ??

Peeping

It’s fun to peek into other people’s world & see how they go about doing things.                         ‘Norah Jones’

In the above photo not just one,but two people are seemed to be curious.

Kids being curious I can understand.Children learn things only by being curious.

And adults peeping ?

May be it is a kind of Thrill & human trait to be ‘curious’ about what others are up to !! And  can one can take it as a norm ?

But do you enjoy doing this ?

The habit of peeping into somebody’s affair….can one express as ‘disgusting’ or just ignore it ?

Probably it brings,gossips with toppings and some excitement resulting in rumors !

Are we not obsessed with the lives of others ?

It is said this habit is more prevalent in women.

Or you think it’s because idle brain,which is the culprit.And one derives demonic pleasure.

Nothing wrong being inquisitive ,after all we descended from monkeys

Being inquisitive is OK if it relates to our well-being,but unfortunately we tend to be inquisitive for wrong reasons.

And we become extremely happy for checking others problems,rather than taking care of our own problems!

“Most of our problems will be solved ,if we focus on what is happening in our life rather than peeping into other’s life”   Misbah Abu Obeida Khan

And coming to the English Language…which word is correct to use ? Peek or Peep ?

Love is not complicated, people are

These days…relationship means…                                                                                                 Any where without you is better than any where with you

How individual lives are changing ,relationships are thrown into the dust bin,people forgetting the meaning and value & sacredness of ‘LOVE’,

Thanks to addiction to social media & smart phones !

Relationships are harder now!

“Conversations became texting,

Arguments became phone calls,

Feelings became subliminal messages,

Sex became easy,

The word ‘love’ is used out of context.,

Insecurities became a way of thinking,

Getting jealous became a habit,

Trust is hard to come by,

Being hurt became natural.

Leaving became the only option,

Sad but true,

So if you have something…that is worth it,..don’t take it for granted,

Fight for it,don’t let it go”       pinterest

Summary

Be selfish,thanks to the inventions. indulge in your likings,Drink till you drop dead,fight without any reason,Ego is your life,jealousy is your partner, Greedy is your nature,Killing innocents is your taste,care not anybody,you owe the happiness you deserve,forget about dieting & exercises which are all money-making machines,,cheating is your mantra,money is everything and enjoy dying your own death,you owe nothing to anybody!

Is this the lesson modern-day life style teaching us ? Is this the meaning of advancement in human life ? Is this what all about relationships ?

And what about ethics,values,respect,responsibilities ,family relationship ?

A hair-raising tale

This is 3.6 minute read and it’s about Health.

No no no….I am not telling that kind of hair-raising tale.

My tale is really related to true hair.

The patient should be made to understand that he or she must take charge of his/her own life.Don’t take your body to the doctor as if he were the repair shop.  ‘Quntin Regestein’

All of us know that the persons well-being and health depends on our personal hygiene.

But then most of us are not aware of many aspects of personal hygiene,Most of us are not even aware of the dirtiest parts of the human body.Here I am giving the areas of human body which requires good hygiene

Starting from head to toe

1.Scalp.2.Eyelashes.3.Ears.4..Mouth5.Tongue.6.Nasal cavity .7.Armpits 8.Belly button.9.Anus. 10.Groinfolds & creases.12.Hands.13.Underneath part of foreskin of penis.14.Vagina15.feet.16.Breast folds.

Though some  of us are aware the importance of hygiene of all these areas,there is another part of the body,which is totally forgotten.

This is back of the body along with the Butt crack ( Ass crack ),medically known as Inter gluteal Cleft or Natal Cleft.

Butt crack is nothing but the groove between buttocks.

Why Hygiene of Butt crack important ?

This area is prone to a condition medically known as Pilonidal Sinus,a small hole or tunnel in the skin.

Source-Ranapiles Hospital.com

image source-ranapileshospital

But crack being a pit,naturally source of collection of dirt, and it is in the form of hairs,favouring the germs multiplication.

How hair  can accumulate ?

Hairs start  accumulates mainly in the form of shred hairs.These hairs broken off by the friction against clothing.On sitting the buttocks takes the weight of the body and improper posture & sedentary life style results in shredding of the hairs.The accumulated hair invade the skin and cause a small lump initially.

What are the predisposing causes ?

With increase amount of time people spend in sitting,bad designs of chairs,obesity,drivers sitting for long hours and driving the vehicle,,hairy bodies etc predisposes to this condition.

Earlier this condition was more common among jeep riders, was nick named           ‘Jeep Bottom ‘

From where do the shredded hairs come from ?

1.The back of the body ( hairy body ),2. buttocks. 3.Use of toilet paper contributing to the hair entangled in fecal matter being swept into the cleft,by to & fro movements.

Ok.What happens now ?

Ingrowth of Of shredded hairs into the skin causing a small lump initially,which starts discharging foul-smelling fluid along with severe pain and one may find difficult to even sit..Of course I am not going further into the details.

How to prevent ?

1.Wash the area(pit)with soap & water daily.2.Reduce the pressure and be gently while washing this area,this is to prevent further shredding of hair.3.If you have a sedentary life style,try to walk in between.4.If you are obese nothing like reducing the weight.5. wear loose cloths.6.Use the properly designed chairs.and & 7.Most importantly remove the unwanted hair.

Thank you

The gift Of Friendship

It’s 3.3 minute read.

Don’t you agree with me that True friendship is difficult since finding a true friend is the hardest.

” A friend is some one who understands your past,believe in your future….accepts you to-day the way you are “. Unknown

We may not realize the value of friendship until the time it is given when it is badly needed,so we have to cultivate and cherish the friendship .

Make aware to your friends how much they mean to you and how well they contribute to your happiness from your routine boring life.

Don’t ask me how to pick up a true friend or how to know,that the other person can be a good and even a true friend.

This is a difficult subject and can be discussed on another day.

The following quote is my feeling ,whenever one interacts with one’s true friends.

Friendship is a treasured gift,and every time I talk with you I feel as if I’m getting richer and richer “. Unknown

Friends can even become Besties.

True friendship is ‘Magical’ !!

“Friendship is not about whom you have known the longest,it’s about who walked into your life and said “I’m here for you” and proved it.  Unknown

The true friend helps me being a counselor in times of distress ,

Can be my confidant when the situation demands,most importantly gives all the strength I need when I am the weakest at some point of time of my life.

Now you will ask me…What is the secret of sustaining this friendship ??

Certain things come to my mind,which can further the bond.

1. Be frank.Accept the drawbacks or short fall either of you may possess.
No body is perfect in this world and everybody has some story to tell and as a true friend you are willing to listen.Provide the much-needed leaning shoulder.Respect the individuality.Even if situation demands call spade a spade and explain the realities.Never thrust your opinions.When you tell the truth let the other person accept this rather than doubting and vice versa.

2. Develop the principle of ‘forget and forgive’ since we know we are never free of committing the mistakes and it’s human to do mistakes.

3.Try to recollect the fun moments or joyous moments you both had while spending time together or enjoying the jokes during your chat times.

4.Share the happiness together.

The happiness ,one can feel only when one is able to share with the other.

Remember you can never enjoy happiness all alone.

Thank you my friends for patiently reading.

Lie & Life go together !

 

Half truth

I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.
Al Pacino

Every body lies .Yes even You. That is the truth.

Can you keep your Right hand on your heart and say you never lie ?

We lie even to ourselves !! Our world is full of liars!!

Parents to their children,children to their parents,Friend to another friend,Husband to wife vice versa,Lovers to each other,superior to subordinate and subordinate to superior.People lie to doctors,to lawyers,to relatives,you name it,at every stage one is lying to others depending on the circumstances.

The day is incomplete  if you don’t lie !

And what about Surveys ,the Researchers undertake  to know the pulse of the people?

Are they getting the truthful  response ?

How about our dependence  on Google for A  to Z queries ? Are you getting the accurate reply?

Then why on the Earth you expect others to be Honest ??

Is this not the best example of ‘Double Standard’ ?

Nicholas Sparks says lie is a part of living.

“Because everybody lies, It’s part of living in society.

Don’t get me wrong-I think it’s necessary.

The last thing anyone wants is to live in a society where total honesty prevails.

Can you imagine the conversations?

You’re short and fat, one person might say, and the other might answer, I know.

But you smell bad, It just wouldn’t work. So people lie by omission all the time.

People will tell you most of the story…and I’ve learned that the part they neglect to tell you is often the most important part.

People hide the truth because they’re afraid.” -Jo       Nicholas Sparks

Even the ‘sex’ is not spared.

Everybody lies about sex. People lie during sex. If it weren’t for lies, there’d be no sex.    Jerry Seinfeld

Why everybody lies ?
Lying is not only a defense mechanism; it’s also a coping mechanism and a survival
technique.      Monica Raymund
Another reason given is..
“The truth is always a disappointment,which is why everybody
lies”.      FrederickBeigbeder
Now coming to difference between lying and deceptionn…..
Lying is a form of Deception…
Deception however does not always involve lying.

This is how I wish to live in my next life.

“In my next life I want to live my life backwards.

You start out dead and get that out of the way.

Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day.

You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day.

You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement.

You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school.

You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born.

And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm!”

Soar High

soar high

The wings of Hope carry us,soaring high above the driving winds of Life Ana Jacob

We all know that Life is not a fairytale that ends Happily ever after.

Life is composed of ups and downs.

There are several situations where we plan to the precision but when our wish is not coming true, we as humans get devastated.

And in some situations just reverse-what ever you wished can happen to your surprise.

“Life has many ways of testing a persons’ will.either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once Paulo Coelho

Every day your life keeps you challenging at the drop of a hat ! But remember not to allow these challenges to put you down.

Never make comparisons.You don’t know the difficulties faced by the other person before he became successful.

“You aren’t going to find anybody that’s going to be successful without making a sacrifice and without perseverance.” Lou Holtz

Make best use of life,take everything that is offered to you ,because you know pretty well at the end something good is going to happen.

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

If you want to soar high in the life,you have to give up the things and people that weigh you down. Rashida Rowe quotes

Friendship vs Love…which triumps ?

It’s 2.2 minute read

“Sometimes,in life there really are bonds formed that can never be broken.

Sometimes you really can find that one person who will stand by you no matter what.

May be you will find it in a spouse and celebrate it with your dream wedding.

But there’s also the chance that the person you can count on for a life time, the person who knows you sometimes better than you know yourself, is the same person who’s been standing beside you all along”.      Bride wars

Let us see who triumphs at the end.

LOVE

L is the 12 th letter of alphabets

O is the 15 th letter of alphabets

V is the 22 nd letter of alphabets

E is the 05 th  letter  of alphabets

Total of Love is = 54.

FRIENDSHIP

F is the 06 th letter of alphabets

R is the 18 th letter of alphabets

I is the 09 th letter of alphabets

E is the 05 th letter of alphabets

N is the 14 th letter of alphabets

D is the 04 th letter of alphabets

S is the 19 th letter of alphabets

H is the 08 th letter of alphabets

I is the   09 th letter of alphabets

P is the 16 th letter of alphabets

Total of Friendship is = 108

Exactly twice of 54

So the FRIENDSHIP is twice the value of LOVE.

Do you agree ??

Now time for some fun

One day Love met Friendship.Love asked,why did you exist when I already exist?

Friendship replied..to put a smile where you’ve left tears.

Miracle

Both of them were uncertain; both of them were trying as much as they could; both of them would doubt themselves, would progress and recede. But they would both keep trying, because they trusted the other, and because the other person was the only other person who ever be worth such hardships, such difficulties, such insecurities and exposure. ‘Hanya Yanagihara’

Do you believe in , that true friendship is possible in the real life ??

Wasn’t friendship its own miracle,the finding of another person who made the entire lonely world seem somehow less lonely

Hanya Yanagihara

Moving together  and interacting with our  friends in our circle ( offline ) ….at least we know each other by face,by real name,our habits,our nature,our jobs,our commitments etc.etc. and it’s an altogether different, in online friendship.

What about online friendship that too with an unknown person ?

what is your experience ??

I always wonder how these unknown online friends who know nothing of the other,but still keep in touch with each other as if they are the long-lost friends and they are also aware that they are separated by thousands of miles in this beautiful world….I don’t know what makes these two to gel so well  !!

I even read somewhere that in one such case,the friendship continued even  beyond 10 yrs !!

You never regret for making such a strong bond over the time with friends especially unknown….irrespective of the age,background,looks,status,liabilities,their individual responsibilities…….

Just read these beautiful quotes regarding’friendship’ by Hanya Yanagihara

Friendship is the most underrated relationship in our lives. It remains the one relation not bound by law, blood, or money — but an unspoken agreement of love.

Hanya Yanagihara

Why wasn’t friendship as good as a relationship? Why wasn’t it even better? It was two people who remained together, day after day, bound not by sex or physical attraction or money or children or property, but only by the shared agreement to keep going, the mutual dedication to a union that could never be codified.

Hanya Yanagihara

You won’t understand what I mean now, but someday you will: the only trick of friendship, I think, is to find people who are better than you are—not smarter, not cooler, but kinder, and more generous, and more forgiving—and then to appreciate them for what they can teach you, and to try to listen to them when they tell you something about yourself, no matter how bad—or good—it might be, and to trust them, which is the hardest thing of all. But the best, as well.

So thankful

Be thankful,

For if we did not learn a lot to-day,

At least we learned a little,

And if we did not learn a little,

At least we did not get sick,

there is some attraction in the lights and shadows generated by the Lamp.
Hour Glass appearance

Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties.   Jules Renard

The shadow from the lamp was such that it was resembling an Hour-glass, and
interestingly ,the appearance of the Hour-glass can be appreciated both horizontally
& vertically with one difference , one being white shaded and the other dark shaded.

Have you experienced any such thing before?

International Day of Happiness March 20 th

International Day of Happiness

What is International Day of Happiness ?

It’s a day to be happy, of course!

Of course ,as humans we try our level best to be happy through out our lives.

But have we at any time remember somebody,who keep us happy most of the times?

Do we even make an attempt to recognize such people ? The moment your happiness is over…you tend to forget those responsible for your happiness !

I am fortunate that there is somebody who makes me happy,smile & laugh and I recognize this fact and I am thankful to this person .Of course these things can’t happen without Almighty’s blessings.

Since 2013, the United Nations has celebrated the International Day of Happiness as a way to recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world.

The United Nations invites each person of any age,plus every classroom,business and government to join in celebration of the International Day of Happiness

Suppose no body is there for you to achieve happiness…what would you do ?

The formula is  simple !!

Toughest job on Earth

Guess and tell me.

I am sure you can not.

If you are eager to know , just answer the following question.

How to tell some one that their breath stinks without hurting their feelings ?

1. When. 2. Where and 3. how to say nice words at the same time stressing the point.

Many times we have seen relationship getting worse when somebody is frank.

Sadly we even avoid the person while in conversation.

And even dread meeting the person.

Or you think it is rude even to give hints etc.

Or just forget everything and continue conversation with the person and just move on….

And quite a few with bad breath go into depression and tend to avoid people or remain in isolation.

Any members ,aware of any Etiquette…if at all it is there ??

Is the ‘Mint’ only solution to overcome this problem ?

That is the reason the World celebrates ‘World Oral Health day’ March 20 and to-day is that day !

Who doesn’t love sparkling smile with lovely set of teeth ?

Why not each and every one of us see the Dentist regularly (once in 6 months) as required.

Love the unlovely

Love the unlovely.

There is no greatness in you if you show your love only to the lovely .

Let your love be uniform, both to the lovely & unlovely.

Let love overlook other’s faults and shortcomings, always believe the best about them,and never lose hope for them.

Are you sad ?

Are yu sad ?

Some days are just bad days,that’s all.You have to experience sadness to know happiness,and I remind myself that not every day is going to be a good day,that’s just the way it is !  Dita Von Teese     

“It is popularly believed that sadness is due to certain things that happens to us. The cause of sadness is often traced to misfortune,hardship or humiliation

In truth all sadness is from within.

Sadness is the result of our inner attitude towards outer happenings”.

Dada J P Vaswani

The reasons for sadness are many. And all of you know.

Reaction to sadness varies from person to person and depends on how sensitive the person is.

Sadness can break the person completely and even push into suicidal tendencies.

Some cry to get relief,some indulge in self harming,some manage the show by fake smile,but still many are unable to come out of the feelings.

We all should realise that nothing is permanent in this life. Change is the way of life.

Whether it is sadness or happiness it won’t last forever and comes alternatively and this is nature’s law. Every thing changes over the time and time is the greatest healer!

Whatever may be the reason for sadness…never keep the emotions inside. Remember it’s like a time bomb.

What is the solution ?

Yes solution available.

A sad person needs another person who understands him/her 100%

The sad person just needs this person on whom he/she can lean on and cry their hearts out. Believe me the relief is instant !

In pursuit of money

In persuit of money

“Money often costs too much “                                                                                                   Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Man sacrifices his health in order to make Money.

Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present,

The result being that he does not live in the present,or the future.

He lives as if he is never going to die,

And then dies having never really lived!.

The Dalai Lama.

 

” It’s good to have and the things that money can buy,but it’s good too,to check up once

in a while and make sure that you haven’t lost the things that money can’t buy”

George Lorimer .

As the saying goes …..” Best things in Life are free ”

But we never care to have a look at these  things ….. and go on carving for more and more money,losing the true happiness ( True happiness can not be explained or described,can only be felt )

Then the question comes ….what are the things that money can’t buy ?

There are many things,but I can tell some  important ones,what I could think.

Love,truth,time,peace of mind,talent,health,manners,true friends,knowledge,family unity,personal contentment,happiness,integrity,respect,ethics and lastly spiritual enlightenment, nature’s beauty……

Friends would you like to add some more ?

Please share your thoughts .

Stressed? Think of Romantic Friendship !

Romantic Friendship

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement and acceptance.” John Lennon

This is a 2.7 minute read.Please proceed if you can spare this much time.

Before I start the discussion,it’s better we know the definition of ‘Romantic Friendship’.

According to ‘Wikipedia’

“A romantic friendship, passionate friendship, or affectionate friendship is a very close but typically non-sexual relationship between friends,often involving a degree of physical closeness beyond that which is common in the contemporary Western Societies. It may include for example holding hands,cuddling,hugging,kissing,giving massages,  and sharing a bed, or  co-sleeping, without sexual intercourse or other physical sexual expression”

Yourdictionary.com says

“An intensely emotional love relationship between two unrelated people, in which sexuality  is unimportant and typically absent, but there is greater physical affection or poetic communication than is typical for friendship”

Can we include online Friendship ( since we are into the digital revolution with social media,online-video/chat,making new online friends etc ) into the above definitions ? I am not sure.

How nice it’s when the truly understanding relationship takes a vow, as said below !

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach more,that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.And that’s what you’ve given me.That’s what I’d hoped to give you forever”  Nicholas Sparks

But then….all are not fortunate and there has to be a kind of ‘vibe’ or as some one brilliantly  coined the term ‘ Familiar vibe’,  or  Mutual ‘resonance’ between the partners or friends or relationships.Plato’s quote is apt.

“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.” Plato.

True friends really make a big influence on their individual lives in times of stress.

And What did John Lennon Say about friendship and its impact on Life and how this true friendship keeps you smiling ?

“Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears”.

A recent study published in the journal Psychophysiology suggests that simply imagining love & support from your significant other can boost your stress management skills.Check this link.

Thinking About Partners Reduces Stress-Study
