Kids are Just Kids !

Dec 22 ' 11 Subject Humor : View Original Article Here

Had a Terrible tragedy last week , i was at home working as usual and suddenly i got a call from my sister she was tensed and almost like crying ans i asked what happened and she said . My Daughter Adina Broke her Elbow . 
I was shocked to hear this but i controlled myself and i tried to calm down my sister and she was like oh god what to do and i said dont worry ill be there as soon as i can and i asked her where is your husband and she said he took her to the nearby hospital . So i said you relax ill have a visit there .
 Tragedy with children can happen anytime you never know when they will do some mistakes , however my niece went through surgery . When i asked her mom what was she doing and how all this happened she said , Adina is very playfull girl and she was running here and there and i asked her to take care i made her sit with me but she left and then she went to the bed and started jumping on the matress and from there she fell on the floor on her elbow ..... 
At one time i was like you should have cared more for kids and she was saying i was caring . it has been like almost 7 days and today when i spent some time with Adina she has plaster on her hand and still she is running here and there . I was soo much tensed and caring not to let her fall .
But Kids are Kids . when i saw her playing running here and there i realized that it wasn't the mistake of her mom who could not reach to catch her when she fell from the bed . May be she was also smiling at her daughter when she was jumping on the bed , We all must care for kids and we must do so but bad things can always happen so make sure you take all the safety measures when kids are playing . We learn from our mistakes and Kids they dont lol . They have Endless energy to do more fun even when they are with injuries ...... 
All you can do is just watch them and get happy and hope nothing goes wrong and May God Bless Every Child and Everyone Who reads this ....

 Thanks for the Read .

Tragedy :( with my kitten

Dec , 23'11 Subject : Feeling Sad   View original Article Here !

I just finished writing my last article Kids are Kids and i was watching videos on youtube suddenly i heard scream of cat , i have 4 cats including one kitten of 2 months age . 
Generally its mating season for cats these days so you often hear males fighting here and there . Having 3 male Cats i have to take care alot because the wild cats they know how to fight and my tamed cats they don't know how to fight brutal every time i see my cats getting injuries cos of other wild cats who fight for territory , i live in a bungalow and my cats have big territory to defend .
However this time when i heard the scream i ran quickly to see whats happening but i heard silence , i kept looking here and there then i shouted names of my cats and suddenly i heard scream again . I went to boundry of my home and i see no cats fighting and again i heard the scream this time it was coming from over my head when i looked up i was stunned !!!
My young kitten fell from terrace 20feet above , and he fell directly on the Iron Fence for protection from theives . This fence  has sharp edges like knife and my kitten was stuck in them . barely moving i saw one iron rod with sharp point pierced into his stomach and i wasted not even a single minute i climbed and i picked him up and i saw 2 big holes in his stomach and one between legs ........... and blood was flowing ...AAh i cant say more its making me crazy again to describe it . 
I brought him inside and i took him to the hospital .. during the way he was struggling alot and losing blood because of getting hyper with pain , All i was hoping to find the Doctor . When doctor took him out of the basket i fainted .
 View original Article Here !
Yes really i fainted ... i saw his intestine coming out from the hole , it was so big that damaged him alot . I was asked to sign one document i signed it and then they started surgery . hours it took them and then i saw my kitten moving waking up moving his legs i felt a bit relaxed . 
Everyone at home was praying for this young fellow to be alive , and its nice to know he is alive but with such injuries pain remains for some days and this kitten is in great agony so i want you all to pray for his health .
I Asked my family that who let this Kitten go to terrace alone and they said the gate was open he went him self and must have slipped his leg .

So Moral of the Story is Bad things can Happen with Kids or Pets so take extra Caution Please . 
I have one more great thing to share which ill share tom if its successful . its about helping someone who couldn't buy gifts for Her kids this christmas :) i am sure you will love it  ..

Its Time to Spread and Share A Little More Love

this is my original post from Dec 21'11 Subject : Humans in Harmony ,
find this article here

At the moment I am dwelling in Wonderland, where I can run around all day and never see one other foreigner. I stick out like a sore thumb. Being in an surroundings the place everyone is consistently observing you as in case you are an unique species, you shortly be taught to not let it trouble you.

I meditate a lot so I am always attempting to dwell my day to day life from a very meditative and aware state. That is to attempt to reside from the deepest part of my inside being, the part that continues to be totally unfazed with the outside world. I can be in a completely crammed subway, yet really feel completely relaxed, even If I have someone respiratory down my neck, inside I am a hundred ft away.

“Our task must be to free ourselves…by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all residing creatures and the entire of nature and its beauty.” - Albert Einstein

Its like being on the earth, however not of it, just a witness to the miracle that is our planet. Dwelling from this area one feels an awesome sense of love, of oneness, and consequently you are feeling it overflow and exit by way of your eyes.

Spread Love: It’s All In The Eyes
Next time you find your self on the subway or any other public place, try and discover that place inside you that is utterly nonetheless, and from that place look out into the world. Really feel the love inside, don’t suppose, just really feel, feel the boundaries between you and the world melt.

Take a look at somebody simply, which is to not let your ideas come between that which you are observing, otherwise you might be only seeing a picture your mind constructed and not the thing you might be seeing. You are seeing one thing conceptually, not actually. You aren't making contact with it, when you're seeing one thing simply you're making a direct reference to it.

This is seeing in a loving manner, you possibly can observe this within yourself. Anytime you see a wonderful flower, a chook dancing on a department, or a phenomenal sunset, you might be doing it in a loving way. The energy and high quality of your look is different.

Immediately once I was sitting on the subway I caught an older gentleman starring at me, I starred again because I welcomed it. I checked out him simply and just smiled, he smiled again…we kept looking and proper when he felt my look was penetrating him, he blushed then regarded away and broke contact.

The Doorways To Our Souls
Our eyes are actually doorways to our souls, because of this its rude to stare at individuals, they feel like you're invading their space, their privateness, that you are attempting to take a peek at their deepest darkest secrets. But since I'm making an attempt to be open to the world, I welcome it. If you make a reference to somebody through the eyes it’s as in case you merge into one another, nevertheless it occurs so quick that many people just brush it off.

This additionally doesn’t have to turn into a clumsy experience, simply look out into the world in a loving way. You can make a tiny reference to a random stranger on the road in a split second. Simply spreading slightly love. You will immediately know the people who the place open and receptive to it. You'll be able to inform immediately when somebody is getting uncomfortable, so just look away. If they welcome it, send your silent love and intention by means of your eyes, all this can happen in lower than a second. When you don’t do this already, just try it, I would love to hear about your experience within the comments.

Simply study to continuously be In a state of observation. You will notice that if you know how to look, a persons' eyes can tell you numerous about them and the best way they're feeling.

Just need to thanks for taking the time to read my post. I hope you found it insightful and that it evokes you to unfold a bit love.
