my valentine

Hi all ..... Its been quite a long time that i had posted my last blog... new job has been keeping me engaged and now the workload is zero , I thought i would post something that i wrote in my diary this Feb 14 2011.

my valentine

“My parents are forcing me dear,I am unable to argue. My mother is always mentioning my fathers heart problem and compells me to get married soon. If you are not going to marry me within one year, I am sure they will get me married to someone else,” she said and disconnected the call.

Now I have got a job,It will take another three years to make my parents financially secure, let my sister finish his engineering and, finally, convince my parents and her parents to my marrying her. By all probable means, all of this will take not less than another five years.

She is from Trichy,I am from trichy as well but we met in pondicherry.

she speaks tamil and i speak Tamil as well, but we were mostly short of words and communicated without words.

she is a Catholic and I am a Hindu but we never talked about religion.

she likes singing and i like dancing, but we preferred sitting together in silence.

she like candle light dinner and i like going out in the rain we celebrated our valentines day together.

Now I want five years but she can wait for only one year. She can't wait for four years, I know. Her friends are getting married, and some of them have kids too. Her parents are asked why she is not getting married. Her father too developed a weak heart lately.

Her mother secured a promise from her not to disappoint her father. Her brother has to marry after her marriage. Her relatives bring all sorts of proposals for her, but mostly from Dubai.

She can't say ‘no' to all proposals. One day, she has to concede and that one day is exactly one year from now,I know.

After that, she has to forget me,I have to blame myself and my cupids broken arrow and I have to forget her. we both have to forget each other. She would be getting married and would have kids too just like her friends. Her parents won't be asked anymore why she is not getting married. Her father too would recover from his weak heart. Her mother would feel a sigh of relief. Her brother could marry now. Her relatives would find their mission accomplished.

And I would have this post published here .

Kumbha Mela

The largest religious gathering in the world! According to astrologers, the 'Kumbh Fair' takes place when the planet Jupiter enters Aquarius and the Sun enters Aries.

Kumbha (Kumbha means pot) Mela (means fair) is a sacred Hindu pilgrimage that takes place at the following four locations of India:

Prayag, Allahabad (in the state of Uttar Pradesh) at the confluence of three holy
rivers - Ganga (Ganges), Yamuna and Saraswati
Haridwar (in the state of Uttar Pradesh) where the river Ganga enters the plains from Himalayas
Ujjain (in Madhya Pradesh), on the banks of shipra river, and
Nasik (in Maharashtra) on the banks of Godavari river.

The pilgrimage occurs four times every twelve years, once at each of the four locations. Each twelve-year cycle includes the Maha (great) Kumbha Mela at Prayag, attended by millions of people, making it the largest pilgrimage gathering around the world. To the resonating sound of Vedic hymns, conch shells, cymbals and temple bells, the first 'snan', or holy dip, of the Mahakumbh Mela at Haridwar began in the early hours of Jan 14 2010 , the day when India celebrated the Makara Sankranti.Devotees pray as priests light up lamp to worship the Hindu holy river Ganges a day ahead of the beginning of Kumbh fair at Haridwar, India, Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2010. According to Hindu mythology Kumbh festival is celebrated in four places in India where drops of nectar of life is said to have fallen during a tug of war between the gods and demons in ancient times.

Thousands of pilgrims from India, and across the world, dipped into the achingly chilly waters of the holy river Ganga at Brahma Kund, an embanked stretch of the river just below the Shiva temple at the Har ki Pauri in the heart of the temple town Thursday.A pale sun shone through the mist at dawn as the crowd surged. The bathing hours will last through out the day and continue Jan 15, the day of Mauni Amavasya (new moon) and the solar eclipse.According to Hindu mythology Kumbh festival is celebrated in four places in India where drops of nectar of life is said to have fallen during a tug of war between the gods and demons in ancient times.According to Vedic myths, Hindus believe Haridwar is one of the places where a drop of 'amrit', or the nectar of immortality, fell from the 'Kumbh' pitcher when Garuda, the divine bird of Lord Vishnu, was spiriting it away during the war between the gods and the 'asuras' (demons).

Since then, Haridwar, along with Allahabad, Nasik and Ujjain - the four places where a drop of nectar trickled from the pot - have been celebrating the Kumbh Mela to commemorate the legend with seekers believing that a dip in the sacred waters at those places will give them immortality

Use Empowering Words When You Talk to Yourself
(whether you are speaking out loud or silently)

How do you talk to yourself?

Do you use the words "can't", "won't", "don't need to", "why try"?
Many people do.

Do you find that what you say to yourself turns out to be true?

Why is this?

You see your brain is like a computer that you feed each day. It doesn't know always know what's real or not unless you tell it.

Example: If someone you love has hurt you, you may tell yourself that all people who love you will probably hurt you too.

Your brain just files this information for reference, it's data, little zeroes and ones and no column that asks "true or not true?" Now your brain thinks, based on what you told it, that everyone you'll ever love will hurt you.

How do you think you will respond the next time you get hurt?


Now, what if we instead told our brain:

"Okay this person ripped my heart out - but that's only one person. I'm lovable and have many loving people in my life who are not out to hurt me. I know that the right people are coming into my life all the time. If someone hurts me, I will forgive them and bless them on their way."

Words can be empowering.

I can
I love to
I want to
I will
I must
I am

We can reach a new level of living, if we feed ourselves empowering words and practice saying them until they become a habit.

I know first hand that it takes time.

And I also know that it's worth it.

Try it for a week.

Catch yourself saying, "I can't", when you don't really mean it and instead try, "I can", and see how you think and feel about yourself.

Remember, the words you use to empower yourself will have a lasting effect, only if you practice them and they become a habit (an acquired behavior pattern regularly followed until it has become almost involuntary).

They say it takes at least 28 days to develop a habit. After a week, you will see that it becomes easier. It's a mindset and you can control your thoughts. Be proactive and not reactive - give yourself some good words.

Dream big and empower yourself! Believe you can and you will.


Once there were three trees on a hill in the woods. They were discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said, "Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems. I could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see the beauty."

Then the second tree said, "Someday I will be a mighty ship. I will take kings and queens across the waters and sail to the corners of the world. Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my hull."

Finally the third tree said, "I want to grow to be the tallest and straightest tree in the forest. People will see me on top of the hill and look up to my branches, and think of the heavens and God and how close to them I am reaching. I will be the greatest tree of all time and people will always remember me."

After a few years of praying that their dreams would come true, a group of woodsmen came upon the trees. When one came to the first tree he said, "This looks like a strong tree, I think I should be able to sell the wood to a carpenter" ... and he began cutting it down. The tree was happy, because he knew that the carpenter would make him into a treasure chest.

At the second tree a woodsman said, "This looks like a strong tree, I should be able to sell it to the shipyard." The second tree was happy because he knew he was on his way to becoming a mighty ship.

When the woodsmen came upon the third tree, the tree was frightened because he knew that if they cut him down his dreams would not come true. One of the woodsmen said, "I don't need anything special from my tree so I'll take this one", and he cut it down.

When the first tree arrived at the carpenters, he was made into a feed box for animals. He was then placed in a barn and filled with hay. This was not at all what he had prayed for. The second tree was cut and made into a small fishing boat. His dreams of being a mighty ship and carrying kings had come to an end. The third tree was cut into large pieces and left alone in the dark. The years went by, and the trees forgot about their dreams.

Then one day, a man and woman came to the barn. She gave birth and they placed the baby in the hay in the feed box that was made from the first tree. The man wished that he could have made a crib for the baby, but this manger would have to do. The tree could feel the importance of this event and knew that it had held the greatest treasure of all time. Years later, a group of men got in the fishing boat made from the second tree. One of them was tired and went to sleep. While they were out on the water, a great storm arose and the tree didn't think it was strong enough to keep the men safe. The men woke the sleeping man, and he stood and said "Peace" and the storm stopped. At this time, the tree knew that it had carried the King of Kings in its boat.

Finally, someone came and got the third tree. It was carried through the streets as the people mocked the man who was carrying it. When they came to a stop, the man was nailed to the tree and raised in the air to die at the top of a hill. When Sunday came, the tree came to realize that it was strong enough to stand at the top of the hill and be as close to God as was possible, because Jesus had been crucified on it.

The moral of this story is that when things don't seem to be going your way, always know that God has a plan for you. If you place your trust in Him, He will give you great gifts. Each of the trees got what they wanted, just not in the way they had imagined. We don't always know what God's plans are for us. We just know that His ways are not our ways, but His ways are always best.

Additional Considerations For Positive Daily Affirmations

1. Because your experience will create the conditions that allow affirmations to manifest, word the affirmations carefully to make them crystal-clear. State your real, innermost desires and articulate your most expansive sense of self. Affirmations based on a narrow self-concept deliver results that fall short, cause suffering, and further diminish the sense of self.

2. Be deliberate in your affirmations. Spontaneous thoughts voiced out in an intense emotional state may produce undesirable effects, so consider many possible alternatives before choosing the affirmation to silently intone. Silent affirmations are more effective than spoken statements, because they entail more intensity of concentration and resonate through your entire body instead of in your surroundings.

3. Link your affirmations to actual daily actions to lay the ground for their manifestation. For instance, affirming that you will win the lottery can only be set in motion when you play in it.

4. Find a way to make it easy for you to do positive daily affirmations. You may find that it is not a habit for you to make these statements on a regular basis. To circumvent this problem, I have been using Subliminal Power, a software that sits on my PC, flashing out subliminal affirmations subtlely as I work. I figured this to be a better solution for me than using an audio, since I am on the PC more often and am not in the habit of listening to a music CD.

You can of course, choose to do a screensaver, using powerpoint slides, with all your positive affirmations in there. This is how my husband does his, on his laptop.

However, I feel that the effect is different. My affirmations get flashed unobstructively on my screen as I work, whereas my husband only gets to see his list of affirmations when he is not on his keyboard for a couple of minutes.

note:While positive affirmations can be very effective, you can multiply the effectiveness by teaching yourself to stay aware of your persistent thoughts.

Persistent thoughts are the ideas that keep automatically popping into your head. Unfortunately these persistent thoughts are usually negative. You must stop those negative thoughts by refusing to think them. Then repeat your affirmations again. Eventually your persistent thoughts will automatically be positive, and that's when you will really see a difference in your attitude, and sense a difference in how you feel.

A god's child

living a DOG'S life

When Jasmine the abandoned greyhound arrived at a wildlife sanctuary shivering and desperate for food, she needed all the love in the world to nurse her back to full health. Now it appears the kindness and patience shown to her has rubbed off - for the rescue dog has become a surrogate mother for the 50th time. Seven-year-old Jasmine is currently caring for tiny Bramble, an 11-week-old roe deer fawn found semi-conscious in a nearby field.But then again, she has had plenty of practice, having cared for five fox cubs, four badger cubs, 15 chicks, eight guinea pigs, two stray puppies and even 15 rabbits. Jasmine, the timid, abused, deserted waif, became the animal sanctuary's mother , a role for which she might have been born...Maybe we as a civilized society could learn from not only jasmine, but all of gods' creatures. All we need to do is LISTEN , LOVE and CARE.
