Comments18/10/2016 #24 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#23 Hi @Praveen Raj Gullepalli, Interesting concept about the soul when we sleep. I have heard some describe the umbilical cord and floating too. I don't remember falling before I wake up but many other sensations, yes. I just learned a new term, "Atma Deepam." Soul lamp, I like that. I have often wondered what causes the body to jerk as if falling right before falling into sleep? Have you ever experienced that? It's like jerk of the legs or entire body. Just like NDE's, people from all over the world, different religions and those who are not religious at all have described their NDE's as very similar. I find these topics very interesting. Cosmic realm, I will have to remember that one before I go to sleep, leaves me feeling a sense of peace :))18/10/2016 #23 Praveen Raj Gullepalli#22 Dear Lisa, such a tempting tangent for me anyway! ;) Well, from my random reading up on consciousness and Soul essence over the years, i have observed that most opinions indicate that the Soul is some sort of a light divine. In our language it is called Atma Deepam (Soul Lamp) :) And am not really sure if it weighs ''21 Grams'' as in that ol movie by the same name...with Sean Penn in it! ;) What intrigued me most was the identical descriptions by many as to what happens to our Soul as we sleep. It apparently floats up and away from our bodies, connected to the corporeal by a silver shiny umbilical as it roams far and wide. Most of us have dreams wherein, at the end, a situation quickly develops with us falling from a height only to wake up abruptly in our beds...with that kind of a falling sensation. This is supposed to be the abrupt withdrawal of the Soul into the body from its wandering, caused by a sensory stimulus to the body. Someone waking you up, calling you, sound of the alarm..etc. It seems the astral plane is a sight to see...with those millions of luminous threads and glowing souls exploring that invisible cosmic realm! Maybe it is all in the head. And if it is a ubiquitous phenomenon, then many heads may be running on the same program eh? ;)18/10/2016 #22 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWhen I think of lightening and fractals for some reason it makes me think of the soul. I imagine our souls leaving our bodies when the time comes much like that of lightning striking into the atmosphere or hitting the earth. I know I took this off topic, but my mind tends to travel too fast at times. I love how you worded this above @Praveen Raj Gullepalli04/09/2016 #21 Praveen Raj Gullepalli#20 Yes indeed!

As this is about affinity and, I have just read my comment again, I just wanted to say something. This post is great and it is something I will refer to and, re-refer to time and time again. There is , for me anyway, learning here and I wanted to say thank you for sharing!21/08/2016 #4 CityVP ManjitI think that poetry is so diverse that one particular view of what poetry is becomes a tiny slice in that tremendous diversity. Poetry is not one question but any question that evokes or stirs something within, but it can be one question if we want to understand some facet of it - knowing full well that actual poetry is like art, a highly interpretative medium.
In one way poetry as an interpretative medium is best a personal experience between the reader and the poem, but I also found an interesting view some weeks ago when I discovered the work of Susan Sontag
One of the quotes of hers that challenged my perspective is this one:
There is an even more dynamic account of Sontag's perspective at Brainpickings https://www.brainpickings.org/2015/01/16/susan-sontag-against-interpretation-content/
There are also people who have pitched in about poetry such as Wendel Berry on how to be a poet : https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poems/detail/41087
Then there are people who give advice about poetry as a profession, whereas most people who look upon poetry is for the love of it, but yet again it represents another perspective http://www.artofmanliness.com/2012/03/22/so-you-want-my-job-poet/
The poet whose story I found most profound is Wilfred Owen - he not only captured the misery of war but wrote poetry while in the battle and lost his life in battle http://www.telegraph.co.uk/books/authors/jeremy-paxman-why-wilfred-owen-was-the-greatest-war-poet/
All of this to me means immense diversity whether that be mastery, meaning or magic.21/08/2016 #3 Mark AnthonyThank you Darryl, there seems to be some good words here!
I was some where once and joined a writers group.I was 22 at the time and the only writing I had really partaken in was when I was at School as well as,letters This was the first time I had joined any sort of writers thing. We had to present something, anything at our first meeting. I kept thinking about stuff, trying to be clever, sublime and all that jazz. After all the thinking , when the day came , I had wrote nothing. I then panicked and just wrote this!
Trouble , trouble everywhere
Inside here, outside there
Brother fighting brother, friend fighting friend
When will this madness ever end
A hole in the sky, pollution everywhere
Does anyone, anywhere really care
It was off the top of my head and it certainly, to a degree, reflected how I was feeling at that time. I am 22 years older now and a lot has happened.

Comments01/08/2016 #12 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#9 #1 #3 #4 #7 Do let us leave 'religion' aside for a moment, and ponder the quandery of this scenario: I had just thrown my graduation cap up in the air, USC alumni now, no excitement to spare! And POOF! My first patient was in the Jail Ward and the hard, 'real' world upset all my heart. My first patient held his girlfriend hostage at the butt of a gun, placed to her head for hours after dreaded hours. Finally, the LAPD gunned him down. At 19 years old, I walked in on this human that I was bound, by the Hippocratic Oath, to 'heal.' He was now a quadraplegic, no movement but could feel every needle stick every morning I had to draw from his atrophied right arm. He shed real tears, begging me, "No! Not again! Please, no, I beg" whenever my white coat walked in filled instead with blood. He expressed great sorrow, for now his todays were the same as all his tomorrows. My struggle inside went from rage, < outrage, < outrageous in the extreme for what he had done, and I never lost sight of the girlfriend he had once won. "I am forced to take care of him." That was my first thought.....until day 30 of the rotation, when I was sorry that I had to leave him. To someone else who may not care. I still think of him every day. / ...and now I'll bring my religion in to say, that also, I pray.25/07/2016 #9 Charles David Upchurch#1 @Jeet Sarkar you wrote that "[what] hurts the most is that brutal activity of the criminals. Truly, criminals have no religion. Humanity is a term which those criminals hate, i think so. They are inhuman."
While I understand the pain of other victims of crime (having repeatedly suffered both property and violent crimes), I believe that you, and @debasish majumder and at least a billion other human beings have all lost your way in dehumanizing abnormal, aberrant, and anti-social behavior.
We are ALL people, human beings. NONE of us is always without fault. Part of our growth from the innocence of babies is that we make mistakes while learning how we should and should not treat one another in our families, our communities, and the greater world. Some learn from fewer mistakes how and why to be kind to one another. Others, because their most basic needs have not been met, or because they missed some important lessons along the way about the value of EVERY person (including themselves) make more mistakes which harm others. A VERY small percentage (perhaps 1/10 of one percent) are genuinely social psychopaths, meaning that they lack the emotional intelligence to recognize the humanity of others (no matter how many mistakes they could otherwise have learned from) and to simply CARE about others more than just themselves. Yet no matter how inhumanely a person thinks and feels, even the most abhorrent actions must honestly be acknowledged as a [small and very dark] part of what it means to be a human being. As @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD was suggesting, below, the answer relies on us accepting everyone's humanity while also rejecting inhumane behaviors.25/07/2016 #8 Charles David Upchurch#7 @Ray Looker, I am not an expert, but that doesn't sound right. It also doesn't sound to me like respectful and civil discourse. If you are to make such a vociferous assertion, I would kindly ask you to state your historical (not simply religious) references for that claim. Thank you, sir.24/07/2016 #6 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#3 #4 We should not be looking to outside people or forces to change the tide. We need to look within ourselves, and live true to our God even at the mercy of a terrorist. We love minute-by-minute, 100% pure. "All it takes for evil to reign is for one good man to do nothing." ~ Albert Einstein06/07/2016 #4 Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMCAnother thought-provoking post, @debasish majumder which dives deep into todays unfortunate - and often unspeakable - issues. With so many questions to ponder, answers to consider, I wonder if they will be answered in my lifetime. I ask the same question as @Anees Zaidi - will the Millennials take up the gauntlet and make the changes necessary in the world?06/07/2016 #2 INDU RANI SINGHHi devashish sir,I enjoyed ur post.I really appriciate ur examine to responsibility our society.so nice for it but I want say something about ur post image...teachers always learnt how to grow myself?
without love any nouns &adjective r not safe.....but actually they
alive.& daily face to living movement.this is realty so we couldn't give them same answer .06/07/2016 #1 Jeet SarkarWith the development of the society, i think we are actually moving backward instead of moving forward. Racism and discrimination based on religion has nowadays become very common, which is very unfair. But which hurts the most is that brutal activity of the criminals. Truly, criminals have no religion. Humanity is a term which those criminals hate, i think so. They are inhuman. However, thank you for the post sir. enjoyed reading.

And to breath in roses forevermore.....wow......29/06/2016 #4 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD@debasish majumder: I'd retitle it, "Marriage, A Chance at True Solace." For only one person can break up a marriage, but if both are invested without too much baggage, there is every hope that the man should not be lonely. And the woman can provide the support system to allow her man to be carried as high as he alone will allow. The point is that the marriage is not a job or small business ~ with time, respect, and superb bonding, it is, in fact crimson and gold. @Ali Anani, @CityVP Manjit, @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, @Gary Sharpe, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich.29/06/2016 #2 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#1 I was single for 15 years between two broken marriages. Being single taught me who I was. It did not touch my body or my soul, nor did it inspire me beyond that which I could see. I was just trying to be "me," carefree and duty-free. I entered marriage with hopes abounding, trumpets trumping and puppets glazing. They glazed at the idea of being married and 'playing house.' For I am a Cancer...I love my home, and I love my shell. And when the world was a better place, I had two babies ~ one that planted Pooky's apple seed in the ground to grow an apple tree...and the other to sing like a bird in a cage, just set free. Yes, look at my CV. And there's more to it that you just can't see, for I did not wish for people to envy me. I'm single again, after battered winds blew. And no one can take away the years that were new, the baby's eyes that were blue. And I guarantee you that every Man knew that I was the woman that never made her man blue. Oh. Did I mention, I was a Barbie Doll that broke? And I was traded in for the latest model on a stroke? I'll never allow one man to define who I am. I am a mother, a smile, a supporter, and a smile. Marry ~ and carry both burdens at night. And always kiss first before saying 'goodnight.' @debasish majumder, @Ali Anani09/06/2016 #1 Brian McKenzieMarriage is a state contract and surrender of assets, wealth and future income. You enter it at your own risk and folly without full inspection of ROI vs ROE. Make no mistake - the 'Happily Married' is an exception. Unplug from the 24/7 media that blather a Romantic solution through matrimony, ask your friends, coworkers and social media associations - ask the Men, who is 'happy'. Ask who has not been cleaned out by a divorce, ask who has not had their life laid to waste by the machine that is the command and control of the machines of state and church to bludgeon you into marriage. And of course search #MGTOW. We are done with the whole enchillada. Stay strong - stay single.
- 15/06/2016OK @Ali Anani ... Let's see if a picture can inspire a post. I saw this little caterpillar on the way to my car today. Others are welcome to take the challenge.
Comments15/06/2016 #4 AnonymousSome people look at caterpillars and see creepy crawlers. Others look at caterpillars and see gorgeous creatures that play an essential role in nature’s biodiversity. We look down on the lowly caterpillar, but our appreciation soars in the spring when it transforms into a lovely butterfly. Still, even before metamorphosis there’s a lot we can thank the creepy crawlers for, In general, caterpillars are beneficial insects. They become butterflies and moths, which are important pollinators. Butterflies and caterpillars alike are food sources for other animals and many of us are meat eaters.
