Now is the Time to Grow

A battle between love and pride
My soul remains restless inside
I thought my heart grew wider
But it only worked as a divider

A meadow only grows annuals in spring
But is growth everything?
Death and decay is a graveyard site
Does six feet under make things alright?

But dirt is decay and growth
But you don’t want both
Your ego is on the line
But remember perennials need sunshine

What makes people feel most loved ?

Though life is fair to us,always we feel we are missing something and we are unhappy most of the times.

Less said better especially about love.

“The only thing we never get enough of is love; and the only thing we

never give enough of is love”.

 Henry Miller

If you feel the Love, I think, that is, the most beautiful thing to happen in the world and you are lucky !

Suppose if you want to make somebody feel the love …that is even a memorable !

What makes YOU feel most loved ?

Life is short….but you can live longer👍

Life is short..but you can live longer,long life

It’s a 3.4 minute read

The other day one of our exceptionally brilliant readers wondered, how the time is running so fast,we are in the middle of January,still we are dreaming….as if we celebrated new year just yesterday…is this not scarring? Life is moving so fast, refusing to wait !
I felt … it’s true

And shortly…the spring will run into summer and Summer chasing Fall and Fall merging with Winter in no time and soon we celebrate Christmas and eagerly waiting for the safe delivery of 2020 and in between many will be in touch with the Creator…
Then the thought of why can’t we live longer lingered in my mind!
Yes.Why not ?
All of you know life is awesome !

If you ask ,each one gives their own many reasons as to why they love to live longer.Very few say they want to die earlier.

Don’t you think there is so much of unfulfilled wishes to be full filled?
There is so much to do,so much to see,so much to enjoy,so much to learn,so much to discuss,so many new People to meet,new friends,new thoughts,new experiences….
…..oh my life ! My dear life…..and you think just 70-80 yrs of life is sufficient ?

There won’t be negative feelings or sadness or sorrow if one were to live forever.Of course ones health should be good,but this is possible as science is advancing and most probably in 2100 death can be delayed indefinitely.

But why you don’t want to die ?

It’s very simple my friend.Death means, all your taste for enjoying the good life gone.You miss the beauty of universe.You miss your near and dear.you miss unfinished jobs.you miss, loving your sweetheart.

OK.But Why do you wish to live forever ?

I have an answer.

Modern age is better than Iron age.Iron age was better than bronze age.Bronze age was better than stone age.
As things become better and better ,we wish to live longer.We start inventing things where in death can be delayed.As technology advances,they day may not be far,where death can become optional.

What is the present scenario ?

  1. Living forever is not possible, but living longer is possible (quora)
  2. Eat & Drink Healthy
  3. Have sound mind and you can take correct decisions.
  4. Have a good social life.Have limited number of friends,who value the meaning of life just like you.
  5. Remember not to possess anger & Ego
  6. When you get up in the morning,first thing you do is to remember God and express your gratitude ,since you are breathing and lucky to be alive. 153,424 people won’t see another tomorrow ( WHO)

How long will you be remembered after you die?

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)

Instead

Don’t you think it is a great feeling when people who are associated with you, remember you,when you are alive ?

I conclude…..

To strive to be remembered after death is a vain attempt to achieve immortality

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

‘Why not me God’ instead of ‘Why me God’ ?

Why not me instead why me ?,life

Why not me instead of why me ?

Existence is a strange bargain.Life owes us little;we owe it everything. The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose.’William Cowpe”

Every one has to face some problem or other.

Describing somebody that ‘the fellow is born with silver spoon’ is utter rubbish.

Everybody has to undergo suffering.

Whether the person suffers from cancer or just mild fever,or any other reason doesn’t matter.

Whether the person is rich or poor,doesn’t matter.

Good or bad doesn’t matter.

Whether the person is pious or unholy ,doesn’t matter.

Whether the person is criminal or law-abiding doesn’t matter.

Whether the person is moral or immoral doesn’t matter.

Whether a new-born suffers or a 100+ old person suffers doesn’t matter.

I can go on and on….

The point I am trying to stress is ,there is no escape from suffering once you are born.

The only difference is , some suffer more and some suffer less.

Again I don’t have an answer.

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome. Isaac Asimov

When one suffers,the first question one puts invariable is “Oh God ! why me ?” as if one is pure (at heart on par with Almighty), and rest of the population deserves to suffer.

Remember there are others in this world,whose suffering is more than yours.

Instead,why can’t one boldly say ” why not me ?”,since life owes us nothing.

By saying so, Are we not gaining confidence in ourselves to face the eventuality ?

To be frank, why should one get exemption from suffering in one’s life ?

Is this not God’s way of telling us to be

  • Brave,
  • Develop courage,
  • Search for solutions( inventions,science etc)
  • Improve inner strength,
  • Understand the meaning of life ( philosophy),
  • Know the value of time.

So we are thankful to the Almighty for giving us an opportunity to survive and gain strength from sufferings.

So our thoughts should be

Why not me instead of why me ?

What are your thoughts ?

Do you agree ?

If you do not agree what is the reason ?

Have you ever hugged a troll ??

How to win war on internet trolls?
This article is a 2.5 minute read. This post is in response to my experience with a reader,who is from non-English speaking country, who mistook my English,and became angry.I fully understand this situation in this particular scenario.I even had to take help of fellow readers(English Pundits) But many times we are not that fortunate( I mean language problem) and are abused by trolls. Trolling is done by cowardly people,and they do because,they oppose somebody’s point of view or they derive pleasure by causing mental agony (sadist ), or they hurt the feelings,out of ignorance of the topic being discussed.They troll because they think that nobody knows their identity. Internet troll can become sometimes nasty and the person affected may lose sleep forever. You can call Internet Troll as a polished version of mythical creatures in Scandinavian folklore. If you think trolls are after you…..what to do ? Very simple. Just Image You are hugging them…that’s all…. and move on by ignoring them.Don’t even respond,however strong the urge to react! There are two kinds of Hugs.( my version) 1. Distant Hug-reach out to the person,when the occasion arises and hug in your imagination and you get peace of mind. 2.Physical hug-this you can call it as healing hug. Time to Hug Hugs are one of the reasons God gave us arms.So stretch out your arm to some one today.Reach out to those you love or do not love…it will warm the heart of the giver and give light to the soul of the recipients. ‘unknown’ Healing Hug Hugging is a good medicine.Scientists say that hugging is a form of communication because it can say things you don’t have words for. And the nicest thing about a hug is that you usually can’t give one without getting one ‘Unknown’ We are fortunate in WP since we are surrounded mostly by Gentlemen & Gentlewomen,who either agree or disagree…and there the matter ends ! How do you manage your trolls ?

Did anybody troll you ? Please share your experiences.

No one is perfect

We aren’t perfect;
That’s okay;
If we were perfect,
The world would be perfect;
That is the truth;
Had we been perfect,
The world would have been
Perfect.
We aren’t perfect;
We are imperfect;
We have our shortcomings;
Look at me!
I have my limitations;
I have my weaknesses;
And it couldn’t have been otherwise;
No one is perfect;
And no one expects anyone
To be perfect;
You are only expected
To do your best;
To be excellent, if possible;
To go for excellence;
To strive to excel;
To strive to shine;
To radiate good light around;
To light up the world.
Don’t worry that you are not perfect;
Worry that you are not striving
To be the best
That you can be.
