A few days ago I was a little riled at some things, which carried over into my sleep and I had some pretty nasty dreams. And so Oscar the grouch kept her sulky demeanor for quite a bit until bang, I started talking to God and complained.
In your mental capacity you must think, gee, this one's lost her jelly beans. She's talking to God, yeah right.
Ok, I meant I prayed. Fair? In a whinny, complaining tone everyone loves to hate.
I said "dear God, you gotta be kidding me. I'm an angel, I'm so filled with p...Read more
A saint asked his disciples, 'Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?'
Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, 'Because we lose our calm, we shout for that.'
'But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you?' asked the saint. 'Isn't it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you're angry?'
Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the saint.
Of course searing tongs are hot
The unwitting moth to the flame
If I were a moth and a flame
The destroyer and the destroyed
Would I be burnt,mashed and charred
Any less,any more forewarned?
Somewhere in the hues of the horizon
A stunning sun tilts her glowing face
Rapt with mirth and twinkling eyes
Unveiling her secretive smirks
No moth camouflages in dark sublime
No flames too alluring,
Nor tongs searing hot
What is wrecked will be deckedRead more
The people who believe in you and those naysayers who don't are similar in that they are people who aren't 100 percent sure. Who can know for sure if you would definitely be a roaring success? They can give you all their votes of confidence but being mortal flesh and blood, doubt and uncertainty can creep in at some point. I know this, because I have had experiences with real, solid good people who did waver at some point and c'mon, you and I waver too. This also means the people who are negative and do not have fa...Read more

This is a wonderful true story that I would really like to share with you because it lifted my spirits and I hope it does the same for you.
There was once a sophomore from Columbia University called Sandy Greenberg who had an eye disease called glaucoma. Unfortunately it wasn't detected early enough to prevent him from becoming legally blind, so the really sad thing was that this young man lost his ability to see after being able to see everything until that tender age.
This was not a simple situation in reality. Because i...Read more
My mum did something very sweet the other time. She fed me. I really wasn't even paying attention since I was feeling sick. But suddenly, almost as if it was a closeup shot, I pored into my mother's face and saw how I must first have looked when she fed me as a baby, a toddler then probably a messy overgrown toddler. You know the feeling was indescribable. My friends who became mothers told me how it felt like to feed a child and feel maternal, but this very minute I had the fortune of experiencing it again as the baby, reliving the whole ...Read more
I have been a little unwell lately and as close friends know, it's a physical problem, an ailment that has caused me to become discouraged psychologically. I did not use the word psychologically in a redundant way. We all know it's the stuff in us(our minds, our hearts) that really counts not a person's physical well being. Some who have birth defects and handicaps from young have shown to be much much stronger and tougher than those of us who have been blessed with a lot of good things physically since birth. Hence despite a heart ...Read more
