A great post!!!

”We need to usher in an educational revolution and not just an evolution of teaching techniques.”

4dGqoCoa

The emergence of a knowledge-driven society demonstrated that everything can and must change and that the process of change is a continuous search for better solutions. Indeed, new scientific discoveries and technological innovations have become an integral part of our everyday biography. Objects we had grown accustomed to having been replaced by newer and more efficient products. If anything is truly permanent, it changes itself.

Yet the vast majority of people continue to have a pathological fear of change. They harbor feelings of great mistrust because they perceive change as an explicit acknowledgment of failure. Consequently, they are steadfast in their refusal to accept that the failure to shift thinking would, most certainly, lead to their obsolescence.

Research has substantively established an inter-linkage between countries that embrace innovation and, thus, change, and economic…

How to Maintain Your Motivation on a Large Writing Project

A Writer's Path

by ARHuelsenbeck

When I resigned from my teaching job four years ago, I resolved to do things around the house that I hadn’t had time for while I was working, like tackling our “garage of doom.” Our house, built in 1979, was showing its age, and our heavy wooden garage door looked shabby and decayed. I told my husband the garage had to be cleared out before we could order a new door.

True Love

fabrizio-verrecchia-195644-unsplash

It stays there, lingering in your heart like a mellifluous note of tranquility. Its sonorous echo hits against the walls of your heart and asks to be let out and be shared. It’s a love that’s pure. It’s not limerence or lust. It is an iridescent truth. It is a love that makes you want to find the meaning in life, it is the love that makes you want to love God.

I look around as I move like a somnambulist through time. The love in me brings tears to my eyes as I see how true love is caged by the pride of man. They fall on the open grounds of my heart, the very foundations of what is true and they let out a petrichor that is a stink at the same time. It brings fragrance to the value in the true but cuts against the walls of my heart with its stark contrast to what is beautiful.

Look into the heart of a child. Look to the strings stretched across the heart of a young soul. So innocent, unpolluted by the world. Listen to the song that comes out and treasure it in a transparent box with little space. Let not anything pollute it, but let everything behold its beauty.

Man, look at how God has painted love with ethereal colors. Look at how it glows in peace and how it dances in true forgiveness. Don’t complicate it, don’t mock it. Look through the eyes of the creator on a suffering world.

Oh, only if we would understand true love!

God help us, come to us and let true love flow through us…………

Spicy Sweet

‘Doing what we love, when it feels unnatural and out of the picture, is when the potential for change is at it’s zenith.’

It’s beautiful how even the seemingly boring days can be made exciting adding a bit of rhythm. Passion is the spice that makes life sweet.

I remember how one day, my sister and I had to wait outside our flat because I forgot to take my key.

Don’t blame me! I was too busy in the morning. Actually, you can. Just kidding.

Anyway, we thought we’d stay down in the flat lobby till dad came to let us in. So, we settled into the sofas and sat there. Suddenly, somehow, I felt like singing. My sister seems to think the same things as me. So much so that sometimes it’s weird. Anyway, we start singing or humming to tunes we love.

As time passed on, our songs became more loud. We were singing like crazy. Somehow, I didn’t want it to end. It was beautiful! That Monday afternoon I thought would bore me to death was now being slowly shaped into a beautiful memory. Not that we are professional singers or anything. We just enjoy singing together.

Why am I sharing this with you guys?

Because I wanted to show you how no day is any less beautiful than another. You just have to be passionate about the time you have. Every waking moment. Just like I found my joy in singing, which didn’t cost me a penny, you too, can add spice to your life if you bring what you love into your daily life. And, most of the time, it’s very inexpensive.

Love to draw?

Put a small notebook and pencil in your bag and when you take the bus or catch a train to work. If no you’re not talking to anyone, take out those small things in life you love most. Your passion. It’s free. It’s effective. It’s God’s gift to you. A spice that can make anything sweet.

If you want to sing, sing in a small voice. You don’t want to disturb anyone. But do it. It will add so much energy to your day.

Didn’t get that raise or that promotion you thought you’d get? Add some spice to the day doing what you love. Spent some time doing it with who you love.

Don’t we all do this always? Not so much as before. Now, most of our spare time, we bury ourselves in our digital screens.

So today, I would like to remind you to use your free time well. Add some energy to your life. Maybe it’s been a bad day for you and you might feel like celebrating, even for a few minutes is out of the picture. You’re wrong. Life’s moving. The second that just passed you is a part of your past. Doing what we love, when it feels unnatural and out of the picture, is when the potential for change is at it’s zenith.

So, enjoy your life.

Freedom

Freedom.

It’s a word we all have our own idiosyncratic views about. It’s a well debated word too. The world we live in today, is in many ways, connected to what we perceive in this seven letter word. True freedom is what we all strive for in many ways. So, yeah, it is a very interesting topic, one of colossal significance.

What do you think of when you hear the word ‘freedom’?

Do you know what I think when I hear that word?

I picture myself being able to fly. I imagine that sheer energy that comes from being able to do something impossible. I imagine the joy at the prospect of something that limits me being stripped away. Yeah, we all can relate to that. What we see when we hear the word ‘freedom’ always has something to do with our limitations. And that’s no surprise. After all, freedom essentially means ‘being free’.

Freedom is something we all strive towards because we believe ultimate freedom will make us happy. But will it? Is our idea of ‘freedom’ a soup of fallacious ideas that has fooled our sagacity?

That’s what I was thinking of, a few days ago, when I looked out the window and saw a bird flapping it’s wings in pure natural majesty. If I asked that bird what picture comes to its mind when I say the word ‘freedom’, what would it say?

Would it talk about swimming in an ocean?

That’s something it can’t do, right?

Well anyways, it was a moment of epiphany for me.

The truth is that the value we give for what ounce of freedom we have, is in many ways based on our knowledge of our own limitations.

If you were born without any limitations, how in the world could you value freedom? The concept of freedom would not exist for you. It would be a joy you’ll never know. Not because you are not free, but because you do not know what a limitation means.

Why do we need true freedom if we can’t enjoy it?

I believe you feel true freedom, when you are limited but agree and see your limitations as a necessary part of your life, so much so, that you don’t want it to go away. This way, you are aware of what your limitation is, but you also accept it, making it a part of your freedom. When you start believing a limitation is not limiting you,  it no longer is a limitation. And I believe that is where we start enjoying true freedom

I believe we are blessed to be limited beings. For that is what helps us to enjoy what freedom we have.

 

 

 

Isn’t it ironic??

Life can be ironic sometimes. Here’s something I thought about when I heard people move about in the room above me.

I hear them above me, like restless birds in a nest. The shifting of beds and screeching of chairs on tiles, seep through the walls and reach me. I’m lying there awake. My body shifts in my bed as I try to find a cozy spot to fall asleep.

I hear them again. The shuffling of their feet echoes in my room. Their faint voices seem to fade into the corners of my room. Still I don’t see them.

If I could go through walls, I would have stood up on my bed and reached out into their world. But I can’t. So I will have to wait and maybe, live with not knowing them at all.

It’s a strange world out there. Where I walk past people I know nothing about. Where I brush past strangers and forget their faces forever.

It’s an irony and could very well be a tragedy. But its how humans are. We categorise and prioritise. We go deeper into detail and embrace precision to empower development.We prioritise knowledge and seek what we need to find. Without that, what we see around would never exist.

This is our ossified version of life.

But isn’t it all ironic???

Mystery Blogger Award

To my dear blogging family,

mystery-blogger2.jpg

Let me just start this post by apologizing for being away for so long. I’ve been taking a lot of classes and I’ve not had time to come here and just type away. But this post I knew I had to write because I owed it to my dear friend, Stu. He has been a constant source of pure inspiration and encouragement and I really admire what he’s doing over at his amazing blog, https://stubaby777.wordpress.com/

His blog is about how he overcame his porn addiction and how porn is destroying lives today. Thank you, brother for this nomination and for being such a great friend. Guys, do me a favor and go check out his amazing blog.

  3. I want to do a concert by the Niagara Falls ( Yeah, I’m a bit crazy that way) 🙂

Here are the answers to Stu’s questions:

1. What topic would you like me to address here on my blog?

There’s no topic that comes to my mind on first thoughts but I do think it would make a great post if you shared the quotes and Bible verses that helped you on your way out of your porn addiction.

2. Would you accept the challenge to step out of your comfort zone and write a post about pornography and how it is affecting our youth and/or marriages? And if so, would you share the link in the comment section so my readers can see it?

I love reading the first books of the old testament. 🙂

I try to link it with what I read in the New Testament and I’ve come across some really fantastic stuff doing this. The amazing thing about the Bible is that it talks about Jesus from the first verse to the last verse.
