Hello again...was enjoying the taste of well steamed brussel sprouts the other night....well as I was carefully peeling the layers, I wondered about the greatness of creation itself. Did God intend to protect everything? Every precious thing has a coating or a sheath to shield it and keep it safe. An egg, a womb,a pearl,our skin,the human brain,silk cocoon,and so many other such examples in nature we find. What a glorious thing indeed! Care, concern, and love of the maker!Its in small little things like these that we find joy and feel the safety and security of life, which by itself has not much of either to it, given its 'anytime anything' nature.

Hello...thought I would start off writing a bit about me, my work and then some. But I will save that for later.It can wait as many other things on my to-do list. This morning, I woke up with a strange feeling of being overly positive, which I guess can be overwhelming and confusing in its own way. A friend I was talking to last night after a long time told me about "The Secret". No wonder then for my morning state of affairs! But as always, anything this deeply profound and analytical in nature sets off my thinking in a weird million ways...such as What if everything you truly and deeply want comes true out of positive thinking and constant affirmations, then what is this thing called destiny, if at all? The concept of "You are the creator of your own destiny" which is by far the best positive spiritual maxim for everybody's benefit connects to the secret, to explain the above. All is well that ends well but the tricky thing is when bad or negative or 'unplanned for' things do happen even to very good, happy and positive individuals, we are left in a lurch for answers. Aren't we told by the wise that life is but a cocktail of pain and pleasure? Not everybody who seeks money,success,health,fame,great relationships gets all of 'em. If they did just by positive thinking, then it would be the most perfect human life 'avatar' of all times. How many people do we know who has it all? My opinion and logic makes me truly believe that positivity is a very good thing for all and at all times,its a magical life transforming mantra surely,stick to it! But also, be positive when the things you repeatedly wish for do not shape up the way you had imagined or visualized them. I think that's when destiny, the part of it that's not fully in your control comes into picture. That's when God or his power has its part to play.There are some aspects of our lives beyond our control and our thought process. Its that simple concept of "Let Go"! letting go to the higher power which exactly knows what to give and in what measure and when.....Its always complicated the relationship between things and their interconnectedness. A big bout of positivity coupled with unconditional faith in God or the higher power should do wonders for the seeker of a good fulfilling life. You cannot do without one or the other!
