Too Deep

By SZU, published on Aug 4, 2010

The secrets that I hold inside

Are never to be shared,

The fate that I carry

is forever to be scared,

I have no friends

To hold no hands,

I have no one,

To walk me to the end,

This life is not a foe

neither is it a friend,

mistakes that my luck made

Never can I mend,

Forget that I am human...

Ever, Can I?,

If I fall for it

I'll be a part of this lie,

And Lie is not

what I have learnt to say,

So I'll remember I am alive

For as long as I may,

Alone will I... (more)

Kisses From My Little Guru

By Barkha Dhar, published on Aug 3, 2010

...him is certainly fun. My little guru leaves no stone unturned to splash water all over just to get me worked up. The moment I try to raise my voice to make him aware of his actions, he says mommy kiss. This sweet gentle kiss tells me that controlling excitement and forgetting the tidbits of life enables us to enjoy little precious moments.

As the time to say the Morning Prayer approaches, the little guru comes running to the room hearing the tinkling sounds of the bell just to copy and fold his tiny hands in reverence. Here comes another kiss that says, ‘a family that prays... (more)

A Blessed Acknowledgement

By Barkha Dhar, published on Jul 29, 2010

...whose plush gazes and fervent heart that has uniform feelings for birds, animals and all living beings, is my pioneer retreat to a conscious state. His playful and magical enchantments is realization that children as god’s cherubs are the hymns of nature. Their eternal kindle illuminates our life with love, hope, care and courage.

At a nascent age children have the capacity to sense parent’s changing colors. They are the midget stars of a celestial empire. They show us that enthusiasm and excitement are unique ways to subsist. Nurturing a child is like rearing an angel. Their... (more)

Daily Word for Sunday 5/9/2010

By Pastor Jeff, published on May 9, 2010

"Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit." Proverbs 18:21Words have the power to motivate or destroy, energize or deflate, inspire, or create despair. Many a successful executive can remember the time their father failed to give affirmation to them as a child. The result was either over achievement to prove their worth, or under achievement to prove he was right.Many a wife has lost her ability to love because of a critical husband. Many a husband has left a marriage because of words of disrespect and ungratefulness. Stories abound to the power... (more)

Earth Day: Alligators vs. Disappearing Acts

By Rebeca Lucret, published on Apr 13, 2010

...to contribute to slower speeds of glacier melting. One starts at home by changing little things here and there. One starts by throwing their trash in garbage cans, by turning off appliances when they aren’t in use, by recycling not only garbage, but random items in the home by giving them new life and new purpose, by carpooling, by turning off lights and so on.

I don't know about you but I certainly intend on continued use of Mother Nature’s perks, but Mother Nature will not have to give us if we don’t tend to her needs. As I’m sure you’ve heard, Earth Day should be... (more)

Do We Need Money to be Happy?

By ddmw, published on Mar 12, 2010

...many people who devote their lives to accumulating (or attempting to accumulate) vast sums of wealth will occassionally be involved in morally reprehensible activity - in more extreme examples, they may even commit crimes to generate more wealth.

However, money (and even devoting one's life to the pursuit of money) is not inherently evil (or even, in itself, morally wrong). Money, after all, is only a promise - from the debtor to the creditor. The way in which the creditor acquires those promises (or chooses to "cash them in" (i.e. by buying property or assets)) represents an... (more)

Procrastination Really is a Waste of Time

By ddmw, published on Mar 11, 2010

A Porsche; a mistress; a new gym membership; a holiday home in Spain; a move to the countryside; a new career, perhaps as a herbalist or a bee-keeper. What do each of these things have in common? They are each a potential knee-jerk reaction to a mid-life crisis. But what is a mid-life crisis, and why do we have them?

It is all too easy in modern life to “go with the flow” - to simply put up with whatever situation you find yourself in, irrespective of whether it suits you or whether it makes you happy. Few people are prepared to challenge themselves by moving to a new city or... (more)

Failure

By ranfuchs, published on Mar 3, 2010

It was my project on display. I won the award. Everybody saw it. A great future awaits you, the teacher said. Her words still echo in my mind. The future was mine, so it was hard to believe that at the final test when the bell rang I was still sitting in front of a blank sheet There was no second chance. I can still remember the big match. I was standing in front of the empty goal. Everybody cheered, and I missed. I never played again. Yet, at work I was given a chance. But when I turned the switch on It went dark. My settings were wrong. It was an expensive mistake. So after so many years... (more)

A Life Unnoticed

By Selina Jane, published on Nov 9, 2009

...a mean bitter drunk, so I tried to discourage the drinking as much as possible. Plus, I couldn’t understand him when he was slurring his words out.

One day while in the park he said something really nice to me. He stopped walking and said “You know, I’ve been a lonely man my entire life. I’ve never had many friends. My family is all either dead or estranged. I don’t talk to nobody at work, but you… You forced yourself into my life, and I feel like a lucky man. A lucky man who’s dying… but a lucky man!” He laughed, before taking a haul of his cig, looked at me with... (more)
