There is something in this image; something normal, natural and pristine.

Everything about the image is in place, and the postures are decent and respectful.

Someone once told me that your woman should always sit, stand and walk on your left (man), and it seems like it in the image above…


Efforts to find and trace the above image from the internet were futile, ending up with a visually similar image, but not quite…

Luck

when you are at the top, you need to be lucky always; but when you are at the bottom, you only need to be lucky once…

2 exceptions when giving/taking a bribe is understandable

There are only 2 exceptions when giving/taking a bribe is acceptable:

  1. When the size of your hope/vision/dream is smaller than the bribe. If all you ever hope to achieve is a million, then someone offers you a billion, then its understandable taking a bribe.
  2. When the absence of the bribe will result to a greater evil, like when someone’s life is at stake.

In all circumstances, its important to note that the exceptions listed above are based on reasoning, and when in such a crossroad, its only wise to seek a second opinion from your morality.

Restraint

men show strength by self control, women exude strength by transcending limits…

Put your hand into the Hand of God

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: “Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”
And he replied: “Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”

The Hardening

Am i the one who is seeing different things, or am i seeing things differently, or are things really different?
The journey to Christianity as described in the The Pilgrim’s Progress could correctly be renamed as Hardening.

As Urantia books puts it…

You cannot perceive spiritual truth until you feelingly experience it, and many truths are not really felt except in adversity.

It makes sense that we must understand why & where we are from, why & where we now are, and why & where we are going. Why adversity has to be the teacher is the MYSTERY!.

Just Right

You smell just right,
You sound exactly perfect,
You walk exactly straight,

Thank you for being mine, my love.


The art of convincing people

Know your numbers.

Whenever you talk about anything always quote the numbers.

Say 2 out of 20 people have this or that…, 60% of children are this or that…, et cetera.


Have your facts right.

Know what you really know, what you just have a clue about and what you don’t know.

In connection to that, treat all unconfirmed information as rumors and take an effort to research and confirm that bits of knowledge that interest’s you.

Be fast to acknowledge what you don’t know or just shut up.


Tell a story.

If the discussion is about a relative topic, package your point in a story.

Tell it so well that even if someone doesn’t agree with your point, they at least agree with your story; and trust me, you have convinced them already.

What don’t you complain about?

You complain about what they do and what they don’t;

You complain how the economy is, and how it is not;

You complain when it rains and when the sun is shining;

You complain when things go well as well as unwell;

You complain when you work and when its luck;

You complain when you are hungry and when you’ve overeaten;

You complain how life is unfair and when it fairly treats you;

You ask for more freedom but wish for less responsibility;

Now that am here, now that we are here;

Now that am here, now that we are here;

What shall I lose to say what I didn’t like about you?

You cooked good meals I know…

You washed my clothes well…

You tendered our house always…

But that’s not what I choose you for;

I wanted a helper, you were;

I wanted love, you were;

I wanted to be loved, you did;

I wanted someone your shape,

I wanted someone your height,

I wanted someone your smile,

I wanted someone your charisma,

I wanted someone your aura,

I wanted anything and everything you.

And now we got to say goodbyes,

I wish you a beautiful life,

I wish you prosperous endeavors,

I wish you fruitful encounters.

I loved you like my heart,

I grew to love you more than me,

I had matured in love with you,

You helped me learn true love,

I learnt…

For anything I did wrong, bear my apologies.

I did it all with good intention.

I would ask you to stay once more,

But I don’t want to live doing that,

Go well and live well,

I hope we meet sometime and somewhere we are both happy,

I wish you success and luck in love,

Am sorry if you didn’t feel loved by me,

I realize there are some things I don’t want to change about me,

As I realize there are some things you won’t compromise either,

Am really, really sorry for anything that hurt you, it was never intentional,

Don’t worry about me, I will be fine, I’ll try to be fine…
