All eyez on me

Last night watched this movie in the title. Nice one. It's on the life of Tupac who was a great rapper.
It was inspiring.

Shisha lounge

Last night I was looking for some nice place where I could sit and browse my mobile after work. I came across one cafe where a girl was smoking shisha alone. The emptiness of the place invited me and I went in. I asked, can you serve me a sweet coffee. But she couldn't understand. Then I asked for shisha. This was the first time I ordered shisha and I was trying to look like a pro when in fact it was my first time. The girl asked can you buy me one too. I was feeling so lonely that I bought her… Continue

Don't insist

Sometimes we like to have something or someone and trying to get our wish, ruin our peace of mind

Sometimes getting to something need time, patience , calmness, ...

Sometimes, we need to take a corner and watch and dream and enjoy for imagination of what we wish ...

Sea is more beautiful when  you sit  on shore and watch it, but it is not beautiful when you are immersing its waves ...

Life is so, sometimes find a corner and just watch it ...

My first attempt in writing summary of a story!!!

EIDGAH’ is a short story, written by the great Hindi writer Munshi Premchand (31st July 1880 – 8th October 1936) in August 1933 and it is one of my favourite stories. I always read this story in Hindi, some days ago I found it in English (someone has translated it in English. …. thanks to him J ).

The New Consciousness that We Should Have for the New Era

The world is in need of a large scale purification, not only of the soul but also of the atmosphere and animals and plants. The general sweeping will surely take place. The purification will not be governed by mankind but by the law of evolution of Tao. The means and programs of purification have been decided, the signals have been delivered, and all we need now is to consciously cooperate in this major action of…

Selfishness is the Stumbling Block to Heaven

Selfishness is the Stumbling Block to Heaven



Xuefeng

(Translated by Conglong and Edited by Joel)

 

You can feel the vastness of the universe when you have a selfless mind but you have much worry when you are selfish. “The Sage puts himself last and finds himself in the foremost place”, but the laity put themselves first, and find death.

I often observe the people around me showing…

Positive thought - Always...

I was wondering why everything happening around me was failing? Then I recollected when it started. Yes it started exactly on 23 May 17. Till that day morning everything was fine. That fine day morning, My office computer crashed. Was it created by me? or was it due to my actions? 

No. But it is a negative thing. It endeared my mind and started grow day by day. I got so many associated negative thoughts with out my intention. Not even a single attempt to filter these negative thoughts…

There is No Jealousy in Heaven

There is No Jealousy in Heaven

Jealousy is a symbol of a flawed nonmaterial structure of LIFE; it is an illness of one’s soul. It is also the ugly side of human nature. Jealousy does not only hurt oneself, it also hurts one’s family, a group and society. Having an inexplicable feeling of hatred because others have better capability, appearance, fame, position, house, wealth, family and living environment and etc. is called jealousy.

Jealousy has an enormous destructive power;…

Expector's Tips on English Usage (14): but + (to)

You can say 'I can't (help) but laugh', instead of 'I can't help laughing'. 

However, 'no choice/alternative' can be followed by the 'to'-infinitive, so you say 'I have no choice but to quit'.

You need to use the 'to'-infinitive…
