Spiritual Insect

“The greatest prayer is the patience” Unknown

Are you aware of Spiritual Insect?

I was not aware of this term.

When I noticed this insect quietly sitting on a leaf, I was surprised by its size because I had never seen a black ant of this size.

Immediately my attention drew towards its forelegs which are too large for a black ant to possess.

Its head was a triangle in shape and now I knew that I am dealing a praying Mantis.

A quick internet search about black Mantis leads me to Odontomantis planiceps, which is otherwise known as Asian Ant Mantis.

In the juvenile stage it resembles a black ant, hence the name Ant Mantis.

It turns to green colour in its 4th stage of development.

Why Mantis are popular as a spiritual insect?

The predator waits motionless with its large forelegs folded like a hand in prayer.

The very appearance gives a feeling that the insect is in deep meditation.

Seeing this insect is said to bring good luck or bad luck depending on the culture of people.

Does Mantis Cannibalize?

Scientists estimate that Mantis cannibalize their mates 25% of the time.

Females are said to bite and eat the male’s head during mating or after mating and you will be surprised to note that the male will complete the process of mating without the head.

Scientists are unable to give us a perfect reason.

Based on Vedic Science, SYMPTOMS OF KALIYUGA includes human beings resorting to cannibalism.

Any message?

Praying Mantis never worry about a secure life with plenty of food.

It’s confident that it prayed.

“No one can pray and worry at the same time”  Max Lucado

Whereas we humans pray and worry at the same time!!

Live life with a little spice

“Why is a chilli called ‘chilli’ when it’s really hot?” Unknown

There is some confusion as to the spelling of the chilli

In American English it’s CHILI

In British English it’s CHILLI

In Spanish, it’s known as CHILE

Have you ever tried green chilli for your recipe?

Green chillies are the life and soul of the Indian Meal.

Indian food is incomplete without chilli.

Indians are raised with chilli so used to this chilli fruit that any food that lacks chilli is too bland.

Chillies add spice to Indian food.

Chillies are used with or without stalks, whole or chopped, with seeds are without seeds.

There is no Garam masala without green chilli. Here green chilli is blended with garlic and ginger.

Green chilli is never used in excess but just a touch of it is enough to make the dish spicy.

There is never a scarcity of green chillies since it’s grown throughout the year.

What does chilli taste like?

Chilli contains various degrees of an active element called Capsaicin.

It’s a chemical irritant, produces a burning sensation in the mouth when you taste it.

The taste is pungent meaning ‘spicy heat’, can burn your tongue if you are careless.

Nutritious Benefits of green chilli

  • Higher water content
  • Rich source of beta-carotene (good for the heart), endorphins and antioxidants.
  • Good for skin (has vitamin E & vitamin C)
  • Zero calories

Chilli wisdom-in our life

“Embarrassment felt a lot like eating chilli peppers. It burned in the back of your throat and there was nothing you could do to make it go away. You just had to take it, suffer from it, until it eased of” Sarah Addison Allen

What is the best you can describe a Chilli?

A taste you can’t forget!😜😜

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

TELECOMMUNICATION

 

“Today, in the Twenty-First Century, an age of jet aircraft, personal computers, wireless telecommunications, laser surgery, and incipient space travel, the mentality with which many presumably educated, intelligent people approach matters of economics and business is, however astonishing it may seem, still that of the Dark Ages” George Reisman

 

 

HAMMOCK

My favourite view is from my hammock.

It’s nothing but relaxation and unwinding. 

The Secret of Eureka moments

“Your best ideas, those eureka moments that turn the world upside down, seldom come when you’re juggling emails, rushing to meet the 5 P.M. deadline or straining to make your voice heard in a high-stress meeting. They come when you’re walking the dog, soaking in the bath or swinging in a hammock.” Carl Honore

“We swing hammock of life

With paradox rife

Our mind is full,

But the heart is empty,

Though we feed our body,

But starve our soul” Vandana Saini 

 

Thank you.

Entomophobia

“All fear does is waste time.” George Michael

Are you scared of insects? or

Are you always anxious about these creepy creatures in your garden?

Then you are having entomophobia (fear of bugs).

The insects can be from cockroaches, bees, flies, ants or moths.

My friend, there is no need to fear them.

The majority of them help human beings getting rid of pests and disease-causing germs

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

What is Loofah?

Loofah (loofas) is a shower accessory used for getting clean while rubbing on the body along with soap solution…

These loofahs have course and spongy consistency with a feel-good factor, as you clean your body.

I am not sure whether it’s still popular these days.

How important is skincare?

“Take care of your skin and your confidence will take care of itself.”
Amit Kalantri

Loofahs are made up of…

It can be synthetic fibres are natural (from Luffa gourds)

The Luffa gourd plants are commonly found in Japan

And advantages of body scrubbing…

✔Along with the soap solutions, it helps to cleanse your skin.

✔Helps in exfoliating (removing the dead skin cells from the surface of your skin) the skin on your body and face.

✔Stimulates the blood circulation

✔Skin appears shiny

✔You feel rejuvenated after the shower

How safe is Loofah?

Usage of loofah has some hidden risks.

That is the reason I choose this topic.

After use, usually, hang the loofah up in the shower area so that it can dry up over time.

Dead skin cells are accumulated in the fibre net and a sure recipe for multiplication of the germs since the shower environment is nice for organisms to multiply (humid, no air circulation)

This requires that you should thoroughly clean your loofah regularly before you dry it for using it next time, otherwise bacteria are back on your body.

If you are still using a loofah these days, it’s time you start rethinking!

If you still love ‘Loofah’ scrub

All is not lost.

Suggestion given are

  • Thoroughly dry it after usage
  • Replace it frequently
  • Microwave it (20 seconds), avoid microwaving plastic loofahs
  • Using washing machines or treating with bleaching solutions allowed.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

This post is part of Cee Neuner’s CMMC- June alphabet Letter ‘I’ anywhere in the word or Eyes

I’ve decided to be happy because it’s good for my health

Advices, advices and advises..

Everybody advised me to be happy irrespective of the state of my mind.

So, I have decided to be content with my life as of today. Though I have decided about this, yet I am trying, with no idea how long it’s going to take.

But in some corner of my brain, the uncertainty of the future is still ringing and not allowing me to live in peace.

Living in the present possible, the proof being I am alive.

I am not sure of tomorrow’s happiness.

Everybody telling me to smile, to laugh and to live in the present.

When an uncertain future is staring, how can you be in an eternal state of happiness?

Smiling & Laughing

“Smiling is good for your heart

Laughing is good for the soul

And loving will keep you living, laughing and smiling” Unknown

This quote is encouraging us to lead our lives happily by smiling! 

When you notice tragedy everywhere, how can one smile?

Either we try to ignore or move on…

As humans, we wish to have satisfied life via a successful life.

Which do you prefer? Satisfied life or successful life?

A satisfying life is better than a successful life. Why?

Because ‘in successful life’, others measure our success. They may not even acknowledge your success!

But our satisfaction is measured by our own soul, mind and heart. One can be content.

And this ‘satisfying life’ depends on your moods, marital situations, temper, financial status and your physical ability, etc. 

Is happiness possible?

I am talking about ‘forever happiness.

My friend, be frank.

We come across trillions of advices about achieving an inner state of happiness.

But you & I know very well that all these things are mere humbug.

Let us accept the truth that we are humans and the state of happiness is temporary.

Some said “less is more”

Ok. what exactly the meaning of ‘Less’?

How much ‘less’ is considered ‘more’? or

How much ‘less’ is truly ‘less’?

If you call less is more…. that means less itself is more! That means you are still left with ‘more’ and this ‘more’ you are not supposed to have to achieve happiness as per the wise consul!

A bit confusing!

My thoughts

My friend, happiness comes in waves.

Happiness is not a permanent feature.

As humans, we must accept that the unhappiness component takes most of our lifetime.

As humans we can’t achieve ‘forever happiness’, be humble in accepting this truth.

Happiness depends on your tomorrow, which is the day for those unfolding events!

You are helpless.

Food for thought

Do you smile or laugh when you are alone?

The difference between Comedy, jokes and humour.

 

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Close up or Macro

“The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world itself” Henry Miller

Do you love Macro photography or close up photography?

The results are amazing in both categories, my friend, more so in macro photography.

A dedicated macro lens takes you to another level.

Of course one must be aware the cost involved.

With macro photography, your perspective about Mother Nature changes totally.

And your respect for Nature enhances!

I assure you, you love it, my friend.
