If up to this point in your life, your thinking & doing have not got you anywhere, & you seem so directionless, it’s time to rethink & may I suggest that you ponder over the underlining statements that follow below here.

5420545-pretty-caucasian-white-girl-pondering-or-thinking-outside-college-school

  • One great lesson I learned from my life . . . there is no market for your emotions, so never advertise your feelings, just show your attitude . . .

  • F – E – A – R   HAS TWO MEANINGS

    1. F – Forget, E – Everything, A – And, R – Run

    2. F – Face, E – Everything, A – And, R – Rise

  • Respect people who find time for you in their busy schedule. But love people who never look at their schedule when you need them.

  • When nails grow long, we cut nails not fingers. Similarly when misunderstanding grow up, cut your ego, not your relationship.

  • DO what YOU love. LOVE what YOU do.

  • We still love ourselves even doing many mistakes. Then how can we hate others for their single mistake? Seems strange but true.

  • Relationship never dies a natural death . . . They are murdered by Ego, Attitude and Ignorance.

  • Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, & your attitude when you have everything.

  • LIFE is very complicated. Don’t try to find answers, because when you find answers life changes the questions.

And last but not least . . .

  • HAPPINESS will never come to those who don’t appreciate what they already have . . .

Unknown

Be happy & content. Life is the sum total of both giving & taking!

LIFE is so full of “Ifs”

Take the “Ifs” out of LIFE

Then LIFE will be right!

Think right

Think bright

Set your thinking to great height!

The Illuminati is Real

Source: Pravda-ru

Illuminati – a Bavarian secret society founded in 1776, organized like the Freemasons . . . people claiming to possess special enlightenment or knowledge of something : some mysterious standard known only to the illuminati of the organization.

The Conspiracy for world takeover is as old as man himself. The Illuminati, in recent history, has twice tried to control the world — in Napoleon’s day and during World War I.

Only about 5,000 people in the entire world know the true purpose of the Illuminati and its conspiracy to rule the earth. Their plan was written down in code, as a fictional novel, in 1957.

In the mid-1950’s Philippe Rothschild ordered one of his mistresses, Ayn Rand, an established authoress and philosopher, to undertake the writing of this code to the witches of the world. This novel, Atlas Shrugged, was never intended to be a best seller, although it turned out to be one.

The main characters of “Atlas Shrugged” are code names for individuals or companies. The code is as follows:

Dagny Taggart — Ayn Rand

Dagny’s brother — The combined Railroad System

Ellis Wyatt — David Rockefeller

Hank Rearden — U.S. Steel, Bethlehem Steel

Francisco D’Anconia — Combined Copper Mines

Galt, D’Anconia, and the Pirate –Rothschild Tribunal

The Tribunal in the book went around convincing certain major corporation presidents of their philosophy and plan, getting them to bankrupt their own businesses. The owners of these companies would then vanish and leave with either Galt or D’Anconia to a retreat area in the Colorado mountain regions. “Colorado” is the code name for the “Bermuda Triangle“, the place where the key figures of the Illuminati will be when the world crashes.

Looking at the present world situations, the Illuminati maybe just

around the corner waiting to pounce yet again.

It’s Just A Bend . . . Not The End!

It’s a beautiful world we live in

Life’s full of problems. As long as life exists, problems persist.

When life ceases then problem perishes.

Would you rather then have life & all that it entails?

The frailties & vanities of life are all that in their entireties!

They say that going to bed & sleeping it off generally helps a lot. Things somehow always look better with the dawn of a new day. Give your mind that needed peace & rest easing your heart from undue stress.

Life is a journey. For some it’s long & tedious. Others may be brief & short. We have no way of determining its duration. We can, however, able to determine our endurance. Are we made of the sterner stuff to brave the storms of life or are we just weaklings to succumb to every fall? Get up & stand tall & courageously face it all! Remember what they say: when life gets tough, the tough gets going.

All things in life are temporary. Eternity is for the angels. The way things are going in this world, hell is the answer. Doomsday will sweep away all the “boomdays”. If going well . . . enjoy . . . nothing last forever. If going wrong . . . worry not, . . . it can’t last long either.

In your life’s journey, accept all the sorrow with the potholes . . . climb each hill with zeal & thrill . . . face all the perils & brave the storms . . . have your goal & shoot your ball . . . and live life as though there’s no tomorrow. At the end of the day, be thankful unto the Lord that He has preserved you well to grant you grace to brave another swell.

A Wonderful Life . . .

Starring: Ronald Cheng, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Vincent Kok, Teresa Mo, Yuk-Wah So   – It’s A Wonderful Life. 2007

The reality of life is that we are born to die. The future is set & final. It’s only the question of when & how – over which we have absolutely no choice or control.

From the womb to the tomb, one room in the ground is certainly waiting for us. There’s no escaping!

Some people always look to the future – moving forward, moving on, living for tomorrow, hoping for a better day. Others are grounded in the present and still others spend a lot of time reliving their past affairs and accomplishments.

Imagine the possibility of these scenarios:

  • Living a life without limits (Refer T D Jakes’ Reposition Yourself)
  • To have the option of living all over again repeatedly. (Refer “Groundhog Day” 1993)
  • To live life backwards – instead of living in a forwardly linear progression. (As propounded by T. H. White in “Living Backwards or In Reverse”). One takes inspiration from the past, energy from the present and vision from the future

Most will agree that living in the present is the most favourable and realistic rather than the three mindsets mentioned above. The present is all we have & anything that we can be certain of.

Often, in word processing software, we use the Un-Do button. Ever experienced a “faux pas” and wish life itself came equipped with such a key? Regrets live in that rear view mirror and no longer affect you. Hitting un-do brings the past back to the present only to force you to relive it. So, whenever you feel you’ve chosen poorly, forgive yourself and move on. There is no “retry” no “re-do” and no “un-do” to our experiences. What’s done belongs to history and you choose to either live with it and make it right the next time under similar circumstances or you can live your life in a constant loop of regret and blame. Life teaches us we can’t “un-do” anything. Choose instead to learn and grow. Make the best out of the circumstances.

In his song, “I Love The Now,” singer songwriter Jimmy Buffett writes:

Tomorrow’s right around the corner

I’ll get there somehow

But I’m stuck in the meantime

And I love the now.”

The movie“Holiday” is about Johnny, a thirty-year-old man, played by Gary Grant who decides that he would like to use what little money he has to take a few years off for self-discovery. Afterward, he’ll be ready to settle down to a life of work and responsibility. Johnny feels, ‘Why wait until you’re old and sick to retire?’. That’s doing things backwards & it’s most mundane.

They say that “Youth is wasted on the young”. Alternatively, it’s often said “Don’t grow up so fast” or “Don’t grow old but grow up!” No matter how old you are, grab hold of that youthful spirit and natural ferocity and go for it. It may take some bending over backwards, but life happens now and the future becomes a memory in an instant.

I love words. It’s why I write & read. Also why I love lyrics and poems and movies. Words are powerful. They need to be guarded, for no retrieving is possible once they depart from our mouth. Most of us use words for the purpose of communication. Some of us wield words like artists wield brushes, painting something beautiful and or compelling out of what could have been merely mundane. Good writers have the ability to “paint with words”.

Afraid of Dying?

By P Chong                                                        Wed. 14 April 2010

You’ve no doubt heard many a sermon preached or theories on the question of life & death. With due respect, many of them have undoubtedly left you confused & disillusioned. The crux of the matter is that death, like taxes, is a certainty in life. It’s not a question of IF, but WHEN.

Sooner or later, we must all face death. Source: KRT

You are not about to hear from me theology or theories, philosophy or astrology, though I have, without sounding audacious, in my time preached many a sermon behind the pulpit. Nor would I want to bore you to sleep with lengthy talk. I would, if you permit me, relate to you a simple story to throw light on this much debated issue.

Our LORD Jesus Christ had but three years of public ministry. His preaching has withstood the test of time over the past two thousand years. It’s all on the basis of simple stories relating to everyday life or nature. This proves that “Simplicity sells, complexity repels.”

The story goes:

A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to 
leave the examination room and said, ‘
Doctor, I am afraid to die. 
Tell me what lies on the other side.’ 

Very quietly, the doctor said, ‘I don’t know.’ 

’You don’t know? You’re, a Christian man, 
and don’t know what’s on the other side?’

The doctor was holding the handle of the door; 
on the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, 
and as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room 
and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.

Turning to the patient, the doctor said, 
’Did you notice my dog? 
He’s never been in this room before. 
He didn’t know what was inside. 
He knew nothing except that his master was here, 
and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. 
I know little of what is on the other side of death, 
But I do know one thing…

I know my Master is there and that is good enough.’

Whatever your misgivings, doubt & belief, may you put your faith & trust in God that he’ll be there waiting to receive you. “I know my Master is there & that is good enough.”

Whether you’re rich or poor,

mighty or meekly,

strong or weak,

young or old,

spiritual or secular,

ultimately, everyone dies!

Needless to say, to be well received

you need to be well prepared.

Mathematical Logic

1778 – 1831

Logic, a kind of critical thinking, is the study of reasoning. Logic is used in most intellectual activity, but is studied primarily in the disciplines of philosophy, mathematics, and computer science. Logic examines general forms which arguments may take, which forms are valid, and which are fallacies.

Logic is also studied in argumentation theory.

Logic has its origins in several ancient civilizations, including ancient India, China and Greece. Logic was established as a discipline by Aristotle, who established its fundamental place in philosophy. The study of logic is part of the classical trivium.

Averroes defined logic as “the tool for distinguishing between the true and the false”; Richard Whately, ‘”the Science, as well as the Art, of reasoning”; and Frege, “the science of the most general laws of truth”. In the philosophy of mathematics, Benjamin Peirce became known for the statement that “Mathematics is the science that draws necessary conclusions“, and believed, along with George Boole, that mathematics could be used to analyze logic.

The concept of logical form is central to logic, it being held that the validity of an argument is determined by its logical form, not by its content. There four categories of logic: First Formal Logics – the other three being Informal, Symbolic & Mathematical Logic.

Mathematical Logic really refers to two distinct areas of research: the first is the application of the techniques of Formal Logic to mathematics and mathematical reasoning, and the second, in the other direction, the application of mathematical techniques to the representation and analysis of Formal Logic.

Consistency, validity, soundness, and completeness are the important properties that logical systems must have – in that the theorems must not contradict, interfere, guarantee to be true & can be proven.

The earliest use of mathematics and geometry in relation to logic and philosophy goes back to the ancient Greeks such as Euclid, Plato, and Aristotle. Many other ancient and medieval philosophers applied mathematical ideas and methods to their philosophical claims.

For our purpose in simplifying matter & to present an easy illustration, here’s a somewhat “fun” way to look at Mathematical Logic:

If the alphabets: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z were represented as:
  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then:

 H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K . . . 
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

and K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E . . . 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But , A-T -T -I -T -U -D-E
 . . . 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

And,

 B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T
 . . . 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.
:

A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G . . . 1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while Hardwork and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, its the Bullshit and Ass Kissing that will put you over the top.

‘REMEMBER SOME PEOPLE ARE ALIVE SIMPLY

BECAUSE IT IS ILLEGAL TO SHOOT THEM’

It goes to show that, for Benjamin Peirce, the great mathematician, true mathematical reasoning is always at the vanguard of thought, and resists logical demonstration.

Why Do We Email?

Why Do We Email?

In this DNA age of superhighway of communication, keeping in touch with your

loved ones, relatives and friends is so easy. Electronic communication is fast, virtually instant, cheap and simple. There is no reason why people should lose touch with

one another, unless it’s by choice. Through this media you can even

extend and establish new friendship globally.

comunication_103

It’s my way of keeping in touch and to let you know that I think of you when I email you even though it may be just forwarding a joke. In turn I hope you will reciprocate.

Sometimes we wonder why friends keep forwarding jokes to us without writing a word. Here maybe you’ll find the reasons.

When you are busy, but still want to keep in touch, the easiest way is to forward a joke. This is to let the other party know that:

  • You still remember him/her

  • He/she is still important to you

  • He/she is still loved

  • You still care

In reciprocating, just similarly forward a joke or better still, in a more personal way, send a simple note of acknowledgment. This is like conveying a smile, saying thank you, a gesture that you appreciate and above all exhibiting the unspoken human code of etiquette.

The worst thing you can do is to completely ignore whatever you receive in the emails. Needless for me to say, wrong implications and other misconstrued ideas can build up to sour relationship.

Without meaning to offend & nothing personal, from my gathering & personal observation over the years, I find that there are basically three categories of emailers:

      1. Avid – those showing a keen interest & enthusiasm; frequent.

      2. Courteous – those who are polite, respectful, considerate & even complaisant, but not so frequent.

      3. Lackadaisical – a carelessly lazy group lacking both enthusiasm & determination that’s aptly classed as “deadwood”.

        We all can’t be so avid nor do we wish to be lackadaisical . . . at least we can try to be courteous. Normally, all deadwood are trimmed or pruned off, as any gardener would advocate.

Have you ever wondered how a friend would feel if you were to keep on ignoring his mails without any hint of interest or simply even to acknowledge, however busy you may be?

Don’t ever complain of getting too much mails

For love & blessings cannot be assailed!

Rejoice in the Joy of Emailing!
