O merciful and bountiful


God is so merciful and bountiful that even without their asking He always gives much more than His lovers can receive. 

He knows their real needs more deeply than they do. Therefore  the element of asking something from God is superfluous. It often  mars the inner love and worship which a prayer tries to express.

Pike’s Peak Discovery Day


Did you know…

… that today is Pike’s Peak Discovery Day? American explorer and soldier Zebulon Pike first sighted Pike’s Peak in Colorado in 1806. Pike’s Peak is the most visited mountain in North America and the second most visited mountain in the world behind Japan’s Mount Fuji.

Today’s Inspirational Quote:

“Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.”

— Steve Maraboli

Writing for that day, which is inevitable to all of us.


I live on Medical Management after Triple bypass procedure was considered unviable.
I have strict Diet Regimen.
I Walk twice or thrice day and my range is 10 to 15 Km per day.
This has helped me get strength in past 4.5 years.
It does not make me Invincible though.
End comes to all.  I wrote these lines for my last day as I may not have that strength left to write them.
My body is broken, I can feel it.
Weak, crushed and beyond repair.
Surely this is the end, surely there’s no coming back from this.
No, it can’t be, it mustn’t be.
How long has it been?
Minutes? Hours?
Who knows.
Somebody will find me soon though.
Ha, as if. This is no time for jokes, stupid mind.
I’m dying.
Is there really no way out of this mess?
No way for me to live?
I’m not ready to die,
I’m not ready for it all to end.
Somebody please find me, I need help.
Somebody, please save me.
I don’t want to die.

It’s very quiet out here, or maybe my mind is just failing me.

It’s peaceful though, I guess.
But I still need to get out of here, but how?
I’m too tired and too broken to do anything,
I’ll need help.
Oh please let help be on the way, I don’t want to die out here.
All alone, lost and forgotten.

I can’t.. I won’t.. I’m not going to make it.

I can’t be saved, it’s too late.
It’s far too late.
I’m going to die.
Oh no, I’m going to die!
Please, not yet, I don’t want to die. I don’t want to die.

My mind is numb, I’m feeling drowsy.

I can’t think straight anymore, I’m too tired.
The world looks distorted, I can’t make sense of any of it anymore.
My mind is numb.

Goodbye world.

I found this style of Martial art interesting


Nunde-Gagri is a mostly defensive martial art that focuses on incapacitating your opponent with a minimum expenditure of your own energy. The primary focus lies on both punches and grapples and it often relies on the stamina and agility of both the attacker and defender.

The biggest strength of Nunde-Gagri is having the exploitable knowledge of where the weak points are in the body. By exploiting the shifts in balance of both fighters your opponent can become overconfident and leave an opening, giving you the perfect opportunities to retaliate.

On the other hand the biggest weakness of Nunde-Gagri is the illegal moves in this art are easily used and exploited by others. When your opponent doesn’t fight with the same rules you could quickly end up overpowered.

Servant leadership


i am the slave of those who really love Me.


I am closer to you than your breath.


I am your real companion, from the beginning and till the end.


I always do whatever is good for you.

From MEDIUM Health brief newsletter.


This week we’re sharing the story of Doris Tyler, a 78-year-old woman in Florida who is blind after undergoing stem cell therapy that was supposed to protect her vision. Tyler considers herself victim of a growing stem cell clinic industry that’s outpacing the science backing it up. And she’s not alone.

 

Stem cells are promising medicine, as they can transform into other cells in the body in order to mend damaged organs and tissues. But scientists say what’s happening in the lab is not the same as what stem cell clinics across the U.S. are providing. As the government cracks down, here’s everything you should know about stem cell treatments.
