U wanna gift(s)?

S promised me a gift if Iam one of the first 5 persons to give comments on her blog. Eventually, I did that and awaiting a gift from her.

I signed up there just to get a gift and trying to keep the chain alive here!! Basically, the first 5 ppl who leave a comment here would be entitled for a gift from me.

The fact is my blog do not have many readers and they seldom leave comments. That spares me from buying gifts! Infact, that’s what actually triggered me to sign up at S’s blog.

Does that sound anti altruistic? Then that’s what it iiiisss!

Hannibal Rising

That’s a movie incase you are wondering what is it. Thanks-giving holidays at US drove us to Innovative Multiplex and we were game for watching any damn movie.
The show timings did not match ours and finally we decided on this movie called “Hannibal Rising”. The guy at the ticket counter informed that we are the first ones and need to wait for atleast 8 persons to start the show! What a challenge? We did wait and another couple turned up for the show.

Finally it was just four of us in the theatre.The movie was nothing but “blood and kills”-”Cannibal Rising” would have been apt for the name. This thriller film is an adaptation of Thomas Harris's 2006 novel of the same name.
Needless to say, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being the only occupants of theatre-screen1 for entire 2 hours!!!

What: A white dustbin
Where: Near 100ft signal on CMH Road, Bangalore
Event: A kid of 8 years old walked about 10 yards from the road side "chaat" shop to throw the paper plates used by the customers into the dustbin

Do we eschew the display of child labor or appreciate the conscientiousness of “No litter” on the roads???

Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation

In this book, Noel Langley and Hugh Lynn Cayce (son of Edgar Cayce) have compiled the readings’ of individuals that were originally given by Edgar Cayce in his “sleeping” state. These psychological, physical or life readings spanned from 1925 to 1944 and were given only on personal request. Readings verify that certain changes can be brought in one’s life to make it better and these changes are deduced from the soul’s past lives.

The book claims that only 3 readings were incorrect out of 2500 readings.

This is yet another evidence of reincarnation and helps us in comprehending the concept. Many quotes in the book did not surprise me as I believe in reincarnation. Even if you do not believe in reincarnation - it’s worth a read from the perspective of knowing yourself better!!

The items below are described in a lucid manner

  1. Free will, which is stronger than destiny!
  2. How simply by “forgetting and forgiving” others you can avoid another life..not as easy as it sounds though
  3. And not to forget about other spiritual laws around fear, desire etc.
  4. Clarifies certain questions like whether Jesus had a previous life, Have you lived before?
  5. Cause and effect of karmic paradigms

One can see the attributes of a soul common among its lives. Many readings proved beneficial to the seekers revealing the missing pieces in their life’s puzzle and placing them back right on the path of evolution.

On the whole an interesting book to read and it takes you to a new dimension.

On a lighter side - Do you like playing drums ? May be you were a drummer in the courts of pharaoh in Egypt..who knows?
