Getting Old

Just because you're getting older, doesn't mean you have to get old.

Do You Know ?

We may not always know what we want, but we sure do know what we do not want.

Staying Young

A saying goes that you are only as old as you feel. That is right. You act old when you feel old, and you act young when you feel young. It is not always about how you look, or about how your skin appears to others. Most of us strive to look youthful on the outside. People will do almost anything to retain their youth, especially the women. They will try everything to keep their skin from getting cracked or wrinkled, and their hair from turning grey.
I know someone who constantly worries about how her face is getting all wrinkled up. Worrying and applying almost anything on her skin to try to make it appear youthful. Staying young does not necessarily have to mean looking sixteen in the skin or hair. Even if looking sixteen is all that matters, then going for external remedies like surgery and creams is not a long lasting solution. Even if you go for a skin surgery, you will eventually look the same over a period of time or even much worse. If you want to remain young, you have to nourish your soul with the ingredients that will keep you young inside out.

It Does Not Matter !

Sometimes we may find ourselves in an impossible situation, where some people may constantly be trying to hurt us. Since childhood till this very day, I too, am faced with such people. I used to cry my heart out for hours and hours, wanting to change the unkind people into good human beings, working toward making them become peaceful creatures. I have realized that the best thing to do in order to get such people off one's back is, to let them be who they are, and steer clear of them; because all they know is how to blame and hurt others.

No matter how much kindness you show to the unkind who is stronger to you, it may not work, it may not change them. Keep in mind that, where ever they go or whoever they meet, they will remain who they are. It is better to change your own course or direction instead. If you do not hear what they say about you, or not see what they do, you will not get hurt. Simply do not let yourself get hurt at all. We get hurt only when we expect a good treatment or respect from someone; but what if the other person is not capable of respecting anyone at all? Apples do not grow on peach trees.

It really does not matter what those for whom you do not matter, think of you. Being kind to people is a wonderful trait. Keep being kind but do not expect kindness in return.

Paying Heed

Those who need to pay heed, don't read. That is how it is. People who need to learn to be good human beings, do not read all the quality literature available that can put them on the right track. Even if they ever get a chance to google or pick up a magazine, that will be for either fashion tips, or something totally unrelated to what they need to read in order to live in peace with the world around them. They remain uneducated on the things they should be educated on. As a result, we see disharmony in the world.

Shallow Waters Or Deep Sea

You can hide the sun with your thumb, out of only your own sight; but you cannot prevent it from shining it's light. What is meant to be, will be. You may knock someone down physically if you have the physical strength, but you cannot ever kill their spirit. Sooner or later, they will rise back up, and no matter how many times you try to knock them down, they will keep rising back on their feet. There is no stopping that ! You may try to be a carbon copy of someone, but you cannot ever be them.

Messing with those who do not mess with you, willingly or unwillingly, is like inviting trouble or challenging the laws of nature. How better would it be for everyone of us, if we would show a little care for those around us, instead of trying to knock them down, only to make ourselves look better than they are. The tragedy with most people is, that the only way they think they can look good or get popular, is to try to make the person who they think is much better and talented than they are, look bad in the public eye. Some people would go to any extent to try to punch holes in someone else's credibility believing that if the other person lost popularity or ground, it would make them the next best. The miscreant can never ever be even close to the best. One should try to be original, and kind at heart.  Kindness shows in actions.

Landing On Mars ?

First of all, I would like to say that I am a believer. A believer in the impossible even. I do believe that things are possible and nothing is impossible to achieve. My mind is open to all kinds of possibilities.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) recently sent a 900 kg (2,000 lb) car-sized robotic rover, called "Curiosity" to Mars for exploring the Gale Crater. Curiosity landed successfully on the Martian surface in August 2012. It is a great feeling to know that we are finally landing on other planets now, this being the first step toward the whole idea of us someday being able to move out toward Mars or some other planet for shelter; if need be.

But; did curiosity actually land on Mars? How do we know that which we see, which they are showing us, is actually Mars out there? Is it even out there in space, or do we see images and videos of some place right here?

Power Does Not Corrupt !

Yes, that is true. It is not power that corrupts people. Power and money only unveils the true self of a being. When on a good position and in power and authority, a person will have the capability to do what his heart desires. The corrupt will desire corruption. They will abuse their authority, strength and power. You must have come across bullies in life, they are the miscreants who abuse the little physical strength that they possess. Some people may pretend to be all nice and decent, but as soon as they get a chance, they will stab you in the back. It is all a matter of chance. The moment that reveals their true colors. Such people will appear to change when their circumstances change, but in fact it is only now that their inner selves come into the limelight.

True Relationships

How unfortunate is the person who when achieves success or happiness, has no family to share it with? Even more unfortunate than this person is one, who has a family but his achievements do not matter to them; especially to the parents, who instead of rejoicing at their children's success, belittles their efforts. Much worse than this, would be parents discriminating against one of their children, while rejoicing at others' success. What would you say to that?

Home is where the heart is !
Perhaps God does not consider it important for all humans to have such biological relations who would share their happiness with them. Biological relations are not the only relations in the world. Those who rejoice at our success are our true family, true friends and true relationships. Home is where we are welcomed and loved.
