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
“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!”
Why loving is easy but difficult to sustain ?

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

“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.

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.

Deep and lasting friendships don’t just happen.They require focus,energy,patience,and skill to form and maintain.
Wasn’t friendship its own miracle,the finding of another person who made the entire lonely world seem somehow less lonely
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.
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.
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.
Whole world is busy celebrating April Fools day….that is to-day
Do you have any idea what exactly the meaning of the word ‘fool’ ?
Then better you know….first….. who I am !! And for that matter, who we are all……
” I must learn to love the fool in me the one who feels too much,talks too much,takes too many chances,wins sometimes and loses often,lacks self-control,loves and hates,hurts and gets hurt,promises and breaks promises,laughs and cries”.
T Issac Rubin
Now read this Arabic Proverb.
A fool may be known by 6 things.
1.Anger without cause. 2.Speech without profit. 3.Change without progress. 4.Inquiry without object. 5.putting trust in a stranger.6.Mistaking foes for friends.
And then we have some funny moments.
Dear Ms BeautiFOOL,
You are so wonderFOOL,PowerFOOL and FaithFOOL,
Earlier you were really respectFOOL & had a colourFOOL nature,
But off late you have been painFOOL and not so peaceFOOL,
I wish you were careFOOL & helpFOOL.
April fool Awaaz nation
“To day is the day to propose,if she accepts Great, If not just say April Fool” unknown
Let us be thankful for the fools, But for them rest of us could not succeed
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,
And if we got sick,
At least we didn’t die,
So be thankful.

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

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.
What are the minimum things we are supposed to do regularly ?
1.Start the dental care for the kids as soon as teeth start forming.2.Brush twice a day,by using proper technique and never forget flossing daily.If you are not aware of flossing take help of you tube or yourDentist.3.Change the tooth-brush once in 3 or 4 months.4.Before going to bed rinse the mouth with anti bacterial solution.5.Forget smoking,tobacco and all other related stuff.6.Eat healthy diet and I need not stress how important this is.7.Consult Dentist once in 6 months.
Ok.Now I come to some common dental problems we face because of our irresponsible habits.
Of course ,these things you already know.
1.BAD breath….this is how I started my topic. 2.Tooth decay.3.Gum disease,4.Tooth sensitivity.5.Oral cancer.6.Of course who enjoys your unpleasant & un-attractive smile ?
Members suggestions/ opinions appreciated.

Is it a sound sleep or disturbed sleep or deep sleep because of sedatives/tranquilizer/excess alcohol ?

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

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

“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 !

“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……

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”
“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.
Please share your thoughts on this subject .
” The madness of God is infinitely wiser than the Wisdom of man ”
Keep laughing whenever it is possible.
Make your surroundings lighter with your laughter.
Spend time with people who bring joy and happiness along with laughter !
I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. The next day, she locked me in the cellar.

“Give it a try ” whispered the HEART
Moral of the Story – Heart always triumphs ‘unknown’

1 st March 2019
On 1 st March,people around the world join together to celebrate Zero Discrimination Day.
The UN celebrated Zero Discrimination Day on March 1 st 2014,after UNAIDS,a UN programme on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immune deficiency syndrome ( AIDS ) launched its Zero Discrimination Campaign on World Aids Day in December 2013.
Discrimination continues to undermine the efforts to achieve a more just and equitable world and causes pain and suffering for many. discrimination has many forms,from racial or religious discrimination to discrimination based on gender,sexual orientation or age ,and bullying at school or work.
The symbol for Zero Discrimation Day is the butterfly.widely used by people to share their stories and photos as a way to end discrimination and work towards positive transformation.
‘wishing a Happy Zero Discrimination Day’ to all my WP friends.
All us have same 24 hours,but then each one of us react to the same available time based on our mood.It’s really funny !
Time is Slow-When you wait !
Time is Fast-When you are late!
Time is Deadly-When you are sad!
Time is Short-When you are happy !
Time is Endless-When you are in pain!
Time is Long-When you feel bored!
Every time ‘Time’ is determined by your feelings and your psychological conditions and not by Clocks.
So have a ‘NICE TIME’ always.
Remember ‘another time‘ known as ‘Free Time‘ ! because
“Free time is the most expensive time you have, because nobody pays for it but you. But that also makes it the most valuable time you have, as you alone stand to reap the profits from spending it wisely”. Jarod Kintz

And talking about sound sleep ……. Lack of sleep is common in modern society.
From the interactions I had with a few WP readers,I realised that some of them are able to respond/reply/comment mostly during past midnight ( people from my part of the Indian Subcontinent ). I am not here for any judgment,since I know nothing of their schedule etc,but I wonder what is the mood like during that time, and how their next day is going to be and also the consequences on their health status in the long run.
Disturbed sleep ( insomnia) or Lack of sleep ( Sleep deprivation).
1.Insomnia is a sleep disorder due to psychological or health problems and one has to consult the physician for the cure.
2.Lack of sleep is human making.You get ready answer as to why one is not able to sleep enough.
Lack of sleep affects your immune system.( I don’t want to go into medical /scientific details).If you want your immune system to work at its best…then get the needed amount of sleep every night Don’t give excuses of stress etc.
On the contrary,good sleep reduces your stress level !
Don’t depend on sedatives or tranquilizers ! Remember lack of sleep makes you depressed.
“Sometimes it is difficult to remember, but other times it is very easy to remember. Sleep deprivation is the killer”. Andy Samberg
“I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it — I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself.
I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes.
Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know — but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me.
However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me.
I own me, and therefore, I can engineer me.
I am me, and I am Okay.”
I know you are tempted to say ‘Diamond’ !
True to some extent.Diamonds symbolize Status,Love,strength( hardness), beauty and Prosperity.
It’s also interesting to know why 60 th wedding anniversary is called ‘Diamond Anniversary’ ?.It’s because of longevity of the couple’s relationship both in times of happiness and difficulties and the marriage surviving this long of 60 yrs without break up in relationship, a toughest job indeed in the modern day philosophy of ‘divorce’ at the drop of a hat.
Do you want to know which is tougher than Diamond ?

I am not talking about friends & relatives judging us or vice versa.
I am talking about people we come across in our day-to-day life,whom we know nothing about ( unknown to us ).
It is but natural for all of us to judge the other person with an electrifying speed !
How do we judge a person ?
By appearance= Facial-ugly or beautiful ..Body build -fat or thin ?
Body Language ?
By color ? Whether smiled or not ? By hairstyle ?
By Behavior ? By person’s dress ? By seeing the tattoos and piercings ?
Is it true that ‘ First impression is the best impression’ ?
And later on many times we felt sorry that our first impression went horribly wrong!
Then why we jump to judge people ? Do we have any right ?
Probable reasons for rushing to Judgment …..
Is it because of fear of the unknown?
Is it because…I can never go wrong, (mind-set)
Is it because we think we are superior and at the top of pyramid and rest are lesser mortals ?
Is it because ,we are insecure about ourselves?
Are we not lying to ourselves by judging others ? The answer is ……
“Judge me if you want, but at the end of my life, I choose to have memories not regrets.” Steve Maraboli
Read this story
A 24-year-old boy seeing out from the train window, shouted…
“Dad look the trees are going behind!”,dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby,looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity,suddenly he again exclaimed…”dad,look..the clouds are running with us!”
The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…”why don’t you take your son to a good doctor ?”.The old man smiled and said….I did and we are just coming from the hospital,my son was blind from the birth,he just got his eyes today…”
Every single person on the planet has a story.
Don’t judge people before you truly know them.The truth might surprise you.
“Judge tenderly, if you must. There is usually a side you have not heard, a story you know nothing about, and a battle waged that you are not having to fight.” Traci Lea LaRussa11
Judging the other in a flash of second…….I call it blind Judgement.
“Judging others make us blind.where as love is illuminating.By judging others we blind ourselves to our own ( short comings ) and to the grace which others are just as entitled to as we are.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer

It’s a 4.5 minute read,if you have patience proceed..
Before we proceed further let us understand ‘friendship’.
“Friendship is a best ship which can lead you on world tour” unknown
It takes roughly 200 hours to become best friends with someone, according to science. Can you sustain it afterwards ?
Say 6 months ? 1 yr…..3 yrs…..7 yrs…. Or till one of them decides to knock the Heavens door ?
Don’t you think… friendship is a complicated relationship among people ?
It can last from one day to…. life long !
“Friendship isn’t about whom you have known the longest…it’s about who came, and never left your side” unknown.
It is said that true friendship is possible,having similar wavelengths,and the two sharing their true feelings, whether a happy or sad situation in an honest way,at the same time maintaining the confidentiality,helpful to each other whenever possible and not interfering unnecessarily into their personal matters.
with the invention of internet and followed by online chat facilities…..both distant & near friendship became ONLINE
What is online friendship ?( Unknown to each other initially )
It is communication between two unknown friends exclusively via internet.With the advent of social media,video chats etc,it became easier, simpler and importantly faster to develop online friendship.
What is great about online friendship ?
1.You can develop confidence in yourself. 2. Get support in times of depression (morally). 3.Emotional bond. 4.Can add value to your life.
Is it necessary for online friends to interact face to face ?
Depends on the parties concerned. It is said that for friendship to be real,better they have face to face interaction and be honest with each other.
Can one trust online friendship ?
How sure are you that the other side person is true to what he or she,as they describe themselves ?
But remember,It is not all that easy to find right kind of person and probably you should think twice and must be lucky !
Initially it may be touch and go ,but make sure you listen to your sixth sense.Suspicions apart,I think if both of them are on the same wavelengths,the friendship can boost and lasts longer.
Can online friendship between man and woman possible ?
If the friends happens to be man and woman,it all the more imperative that they know their limits and keep things cool.We also come across many examples of people falling in love and taking the friendship to next level and break up later.Ultimately it is up to them to decide how to maintain the relationship to be long-lasting.
If both parties intend to have fun ( online ),share the moments,having jokes,exchanging the ideas,making recommendations,suggestions, even helping each other’s in difficult situations,(need not be financial),and may or may not be serious in taking the friendship to next level…..it can still be a lot of fun!
What about age factor?
I am not sure.For teenagers the relationship is obvious. For Middle aged people it can be different meaning.For older people they are in need of affection & some body to talk to.
What if friends happen to be young & aged?
It is up to the individuals concerned to continue or stop depending upon the individual feelings and priorities.I am not able to guess really and internet search giving different opinions.
And the secret of lasting online friendship ?
In order to achieve lasting friendship,I think a continuous communication is important.I feel it should be on a daily basis at regular intervals.
The beauty of online friendship is that you don’t know the other person, personally and your imaginations run wild !( if you are not into video mode the fun is much greater)You are in your own virtual world,enjoying every minute ! The discussion can even be a deep personal conversation !
My take…long-lasting online friendship is possible, provided
1.If the parties develop mutual TRUST and be HONEST (not exploiting).Don’t overdo chats or get addicted.
2.Be frank and have an open communication.Have a regular chat schedule ( timing is important,both the parties must allot mutually convenient time) and keep in touch,know each other even better.
3. Be a good listener and appreciate the other party when the person deserves the same.
4.Give importance to the common bond.
5.Don’t be possessive.Tune down your ego to ZERO
6.If possible turn online friend into a real life True friend.
What is your experience with unknown online friends ?
Would you like to add any more suggestions ? please go ahead.

Professional Photographers can make a real kill,because of selfies.
As an amateur photographer,I realized that selfie makes one’s life miserable.
1.Selfies distort your face by 30 % .The truth is you look ugly.people are dejected for this and try to avoid the world.
2.Selfie face distortion making people do nose jobs and plastic surgeons have become busy .Some body even inventing app( commercialization),which is supposed to correct the distortion
3. People becoming obsessed and in the process getting depressed.
4. As a medical professional,I can tell you that regular usage of selfie can give you SELFIE WRIST, an emerging hazard in this digital era.Selfie wrist causes pain,numbness and tingling sensation in the hand.( carpal tunnel syndrome)
Doctor warns-rise in cases of selfie wrist
5.Hundreds and thousands are getting killed while trying to take selfies with India in the lead,followed by Russia.USA and Pakistan.
List of selfie related injuries and deaths ( Oct 2011-Jan 2019)
“The inventor of the mirror poisoned the human heart”.
We all leave legacy be good are bad.And if you think you will be remembered for that,you are sadly mistaken.
That is what happens in life.
But once you are dead,do you really care whether any body remembers you at all !
Don’t be shocked to the fact that even your kith and kin forget you over the time.Don’t blame them !
My guess is if you leave a legacy of kindness may be you will be remembered for sometime.
Occasionally children may recollect what their dad or mom told them.
Wife or husband surely miss the other person and cherish the shared bonds from time to time.
What I am trying to tell is,the frequency of thinking of that person will be less and less as time moves on,though memories remain.( Memories can not fade)
Don’t you think it is a great feeling when people who are associated with you, remember you,when you are alive ?
There is quiz too….to know how you will be remembered after you die ! ( just for Fun don’t take it seriously.)
how you will be remembered after death
See this clip(117 seconds) before you proceed further.
Does true love exist? I dare !
Sex,money or power will decide the intensity of the so-called true love.
you may blast me that ….I am,atrocious,stone-hearted, silly, crazy, cruel,disgusting and disappointing but I am not dejected,because one day you realize that none can show the true love without expecting something in return. And that day,you are sure to remember me!The love what you expect / or given is nothing but ‘fake love !
In this world no body is willing to give unconditional love,though they can, if really they want,but they won’t because of the inherent selfishness.
I shall give just 2 examples.My discussion is limited to so called ‘unbreakable human love’
‘I love you beyond eternity’,
‘If loving is wrong,then I don’t want to be right ‘
‘My love for you is a journey starting at forever & ending never.
‘You’re the first boy I ever kissed Jake,and I want you to be the last'(hollywood dialogue-movie-sweet home Alabama)
‘I think I’d miss you even if we’d never met'( movie-wedding date)
If these things are true….Why you see so many cases of divorces?
2.If true love were there( parents vs children)…
Why there are so many old age homes and homes for destitute ? And what about.. Orphanage,Children homes ?
Ron Leighman in Quora (on love is bullshit)
“Because love is a fraudulent emotion, it doesn’t exist. They say the love you Blah blah blah. Then once you get/give them what they want they kick you to the curb like yesterdays garbage. You may as well expect it because it will happen. Expect it then you feel no pain when it happens”.
Are we into the ‘Fantasy Love’?
“Of all the lies you told me….’I love you’ was my favorite”.Unknown
True love is possible only when the people concerned are mature enough ( this happens as they age ) to see both sides of the point of view.
Finally,the difference between True Love & Pure Love.
True Love may not be possible all the time ,but Pure Love is possible.
Loving what you get is compromise.
Getting what you love is Success.
Loving without caring whether you will get it or not is true love.
Loving even after you knowing that you won’t get it..is pure love.
Definition :To quarrel is to fight — but usually not physically.
Quarreling is a fact of life, occurring between the best of friends, in the happiest of marriages, and between parents and their children. vocabulary.com
It is a disagreement about something.
Why we quarrel in the very first place ?
Somewhere I read ( I am not able to recollect the source) what is known as BIG 5 causing friction, leading to argument. 1.Money, 2.sex, 3.raising kids, 4.in-laws and 5.house/office work.Of course one can broaden the BIG 5 into various sub-classes.
Disagreement can lead from just anger to outburst of pent-up feelings.
The quarrels can stretch from very few initially to increased frequency over the time.
The reasons can be from silly to far serious issues.
The whole problem is because none is willing to admit their mistakes, continue the arguments,even competing with each other, with ego factor playing an active role.
Whenever there is dispute remember,
“Family problems come in all sizes and shapes.Some are short-lived,easily managed,while others are more chronic and difficult to handle” unknown
What I am trying to tell is that it takes time to deal the problems and one must be patient.One must realize that,
“Families and their problems go on and they are not solved….they are dealt with”. Roger Ebert,
When we are friendly with the entire world ( don’t say…. this is because of survival instinct ),why can’t we show same friendliness to our family members?
You know the old adage
“You can choose the friends,but you can’t choose the family”
In other words,since blood is thicker than water, all the more you can’t afford to quarrel with your family members.
How best to avoid family quarrels ?
Some tips which I think,can help! ( My 12 commandments )
1.Stay calm in spite of the urge to respond angrily.Never raise your voice.
2.Be a good listener.
3.Reduce your emotional scale to zero.
4.Let there not be communication gap.Make it clear as to what the other person is saying and meaning.
5.Impress the other person,what actually you meant or intended to do.
6.Never bring the past or unrelated issues.
7.Try to solve the problem and not to win the argument.
8.Put yourself in the others shoes.
9.Don’t stockpile your issues and vent at a stretch irrelevantly.
10.forget & forgive
11.Take it easy.
12.Have faith in the Lord.
“Problems are like washing machines,they twist us,spin us,knock us around but in the end,we come out cleaner,brighter and better than before” – unknown

Are you able to concentrate on God and Just God alone and pray without any thoughts interfering the prayers ?
1.Are you the one doing just lip movements while praying,but wander in a different world full of one thought jumping over to the next?
2.This split second intrusion of your thoughts (whether negative or positive) during prayers really haunting you ? Is this making you guilty ?
If it is so, believe me …..you are not alone.
Is it because our brains have multiple components,each doing different jobs in quick succession, thus making us, difficult to concentrate ?
Are these intrusive thoughts, a basic human nature ? ( since we can not stop thoughts from the brain)
Can you control your mind when you are already burdened with your ‘Life’ ? (burden of life is a reality for all of us).
Is it possible to override these thoughts ?
How to solve this problem ?
So many questions…..but I am finding very difficult to get one perfect answer (though plenty of answers are available on the net,which I am not convinced) which helps to really concentrate on God nothing but God .
I don’t have an answer.Do you have one ? Please guide me.
Some say Meditation helps
“The goal of meditation is not to control your thoughts,it is to stop letting them control you”
Again I am not sure of Meditation and how it can help control ones’ mind,since mind sprouts the thoughts continuously.Mind won’t keep quite Even during the sleep, we are troubled by the thoughts in the form of Dreams!
My guess is just ignore them.And Pray God to put an end to these interfering thoughts.Or appeal to God for forgiveness and say “I trust you and I surrender”
Once we surrender with sincerity,God will appreciate.
Please share your thoughts and any solution ( I mean based on your experience), if at all available.Thank you in advance.
