Its the mind...


Its your mind that makes you want to embrace a certain lifestyle and encourages you do everything you can to achieve it. Its the mind that makes you find compassion with a certain somebody who fits 'the criteria' and provides a fair ground for you to move forward in life without the need for encountering unnecessary obstacles. Its the mind that wants it to be easy and wants you to become someone you cannot or should not be.

But the truth is, dear friends - a dream is just a dream; a vision of a grander you is just a vision in your head; what is easy right now may not promise to be easy tomorrow; and what we let go today because our mind said so may be something that can give us heartache for life - for life is nothing but lifeless without the risks we take with that uncalculated faith, the choices we make that make no sense at all, the things we sacrifice without the hope of any return, and the moments we live in happiness today without thinking about the possibilities of tomorrow.

Fly light

Like birds, lets leave behind what we don't need to carry.
Grudges, sadness, pain, fear and regrets.
Fly light, life is beautiful!

On Being Human...

I am human. My commanding reputation precedes me. In this seat of power I have nothing left to prove; but I would be mistaken to assume that I have nothing left to learn or teach. I am human and responsibility empowers me; relationships strengthen me; what holds me back roots me to the ground, and what I let go makes me free.

John Lennon on God

Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it.

Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted. You're just left with yourself all the time, whatever you do anyway. You've got to get down to your own God in your own temple. It's all down to you, mate.

I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohamed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong.

JOHN LENNON (1940-1980)

Mindset: Conditioned to Believe?

Something inspiring... read on

--------------------------------------------------------------------

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

"Well," he said, "when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size of rope to tie them and, at that age, It's enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free." My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn't they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before? So make an attempt to grow further...
Why shouldn't we try it again?

Tragedy


It is perfectly possible to get what you think you want and be miserable. It's possible too, to never get it but deeply enjoy the process of trying. In this world, there are only two tragedies. One is not getting your heart's desire, the other one is getting it.

Change

When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.

Testimonials I wrote

Mobashira's

Mbdck.exe is stand-alone piece of crap that may or may not do what was expected, or written in the books of fate; when you crossed that person you never wanted to notice you in the first place. She is a role model for all the *Bleep* misfits and an inspiration for those who died waiting that things might change for good ;) Some of my fav qualities ladies n gentlemen, include: flexiblility, high resistance to external stimuli, extreme tangibility, wash n wear drip dry... you mess with me, I will stare @ you with my branded glasses... & I will n I can fix this attitude. And may I also suggest that one shouldn't let that calm look distract you, she can be that 9/11 you were wishing you never had to experience ;). I guess the only things that bind us together are Tony & our love for self destruction!! ;)

Sundas's

Sundas Yasmin, Ladies and Gentlemen, is by far at the top of my personal list of 'People’s magazine's noisiest persons in the world’. She is the kind of person who gets a haircut and then buys a gun, makes every one choose to either say nice things about the haircut, or face the gun. She is the girl who turns green in front of the camera, doesn’t like the picture, beats the crap out of the photographer, and then uses the gun to make everyone say that she 'actually' looks prettier than the damn pictures (which, according to the eternal laws of proportion and the third law of motion, is incorrect; but we say it anyway for the sake of our lives!). She also happens to have a natural interest in anything that sounds even remotely cheap-ish, like magroor laylas, frAndshipping communities, tadpoles, hArt shaped gifts... and U-know-wAts.
Being next-seat pArosans, we have outranked all the sane-ists of 'YAYA land' & out classed all the wAnna-frAndship freaks of the universe. The most creditable invention of this partnership being the ‘kuttification’ dictionary, which, when released will break the records of the so called Parry Hotter regime, and bring a better future for the under privileged & under aged, & forever will be remembered the names of Lal Pari & Basanti who kicked J.K.Rowling’s @$$!!
