Today's LETTER..


As you got up this morning, I watched you,
and hoped you would talk to me,
even if it was just a few words,
asking my opinion or thanking me for something good
that happened in your life yesterday.
But I noticed you were too busy,
trying to find the right outfit to wear.

When you ran around the house getting ready,
I knew there would be a few minutes for you to stop
and say hello, but you were too busy.
At one point you had to wait fifteen minutes with
nothing to do except sit in a chair.
Then I saw you spring to your feet.
I thought you wanted to talk to me
but you ran to the phone and
called a friend to get the latest gossip instead.
I watched patiently all day long.
With all our activities I guess you were
too busy to say anything to me.

I noticed that before lunch you looked around,
maybe you felt embarrassed to talk to me,
that is why you didn't bow your head.
You glanced three or four tables over and
you noticed some of your friends talking to me briefly
before they ate, but you didn't.

That's okay. There is still more time left,
and I hope that you will talk to me yet.

You went home and it seems as if you had lots of
things to do.

After a few of them were done, you turned on the TV.
I don't know if you like TV or not,just about anything goes there and
you spend a lot of time each day in front of it
not thinking about anything, just enjoying the show.
I waited patiently again as you watched the TV and ate
your meal, but again you didn't talk to me.
Bedtime I guess you felt too tired.
After you said goodnight to your family
you plopped into bed and fell asleep in no time.

That's okay because you may not realize that
I am always there for you..
I've got patience, more than you will ever know.
I even want to teach you how to be patient with others as well.

I love you so much that I wait everyday for a nod,
prayer or thought, or a thankful part of your heart.
It is hard to have a one-sided conversation.

Well, you are getting up once again.
Once again I will wait, with nothing but love for you.
Hoping that today you will give me some time.
Have a nice Life !

Your friend,

ABOUT DRINKING WATER................

The following will probably amaze and startle you...

A single glass of water shuts down midnight hunger
pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University study.
Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen.
Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer. Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day? (No kidding, all of the above is true...) Now that I have your attention, go get another glass of water!

World without war

All of us were born on the same earth;
The life-protecting air that we breathe is common for all;
The sun that warms and lights the entire world is common for all;
The sea water that evoparates and rains is common for all;
None of the above have been created by anyone in this world;
Everyone is born, lives and will die;
If the killing of one part of humankind by another is justified,
Then murderers alone will remain.
Can any of us deny the above facts?
In today's social set-up there is no need at all for such an atrocity as war.War continues only because of the inherited habits.Good deeds should not be postponed or delayed.
-Thathuvagnani Vethathiri Maharishi

Sunlight forever.

Sunlight forever
All living things get their energy from the sun. The cloudless blue sky during the day has great beneficial influence on the world. Sunlight kills many harmful germs. As you know sunray consists of seven colours –violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red.. Out of these the first three colours have cool effect on the body and are also antiseptic, the last three colours create heat. Green is neutral.
Each colour has its own unique effect which can be used for healing and restoring body’s natural balance and harmony.90 minutes from sunrise and 60 minutes before sunset is suitable for this therapy. It was proved that this chemotherapy is very effective for all types of patients even with chronic and dreaded diseases.

Let us know about women:

Studies conducted by University of Southern California show that women are more subject to feeling depressed and “down in the dumps: than men

Average woman requires more sleep than average man.

Even though minor emergencies tend to upset women more, in real crisis she is likely to remain calmer than the average male.
"A woman is like a tea- bag; only in hot water do you realise how strong she is."

Do You Know?

After meals you must feel energetic,light capable of doing any work.If you feel heavy,sleepy or dull it indicates over eating or fast eating or a weak digestive system.To be healthy we must fill 1/3 of stomach with food and 1/3 with water.
If we lie down for 10 to 15 minutes on the left side after lunch or dinner the breath is linked with the sun,producing heat in the body and helping digestion.If we lie down on the right side the breath will flow from the left nostril which is useful during too much body heat or fever.

Relax! Relax!

Relax! Relax!
What makes you tired? Mental work alone can’t make you tired. Boredom, anxiety and worry cause fatigue. Learn to relax anywhere you are.
On coming home after a hectic work a host of works await you. Don’t rush to tackle them. Don’t sit before T.V .Relax for at least 20 minutes.
Open the window and lie down on a mat. Put a pillow beneath your knees. Let your arms and legs lie loosely. Shut your eyes and watch your breath peacefully. A cotton ball dipped in tea/rose water on your eyelids has a very restful effect. Eyes are important in relieving nervous tension as they burn up 25% of all the nervous energies consumed by the body. Do some eye exercise to prevent untimely wrinkles. And don’t think about any unpleasant occurrence of the day. Listen to some good music. This’ll rejuvenate you.

As we are living in a time of stress and anxiety we feel acute concern about future.We wish to control and shape our future. That is a distinctive feature which distinguish us from the other living creatures. Our experience in the past gives us the only light on our future.But it has some limits.

“Our appointment with life is the present moment. The place of our appointment is right here, in this very place”.
The Buddha.
We have to live fully in the present moment, neither immobilised bythe past in the form of regrets, resentments and anger nor preoccupied with the future, with anxieties and worries. When you are rooted in the present, you begin to see all the beauty and marvels of life. We do not destroy the present by the regrets of past and hopes of future.
These lines of an anonymous author are very interesting.
“I shut the door on yesterday
and threw the key away.
Tomorrow has no fears for me
Since I have found today.”
To live our life fully we must learn to live now.

The colours of the sky depends on the position of the sun
and atmosphere.We take the blueness of our sky for granted.But the
skies of other planets in our solar system can be of any
colour.Why? It all depends on the atmospheric density of a
planet,and the gases comprise that atmosphere.Sunlight, which appears white is infact composed of every colour of the spectrum-violet,indigo,blue,green,yellow,orange,red.
And each colour has a different wavelength.Violet and blue
have the shortest wavelengths,orange and red the
longest.Wavelength can be as short as a hundred millionth of
an inch,the size of a simple molecule. The closer the colour wavelength is to the size of a gas
molecule the more it will be bounced around,or scattered,by a
given atmosphere so long as the gas particles themselves do
not absorb sunlight. Our air is a mixer of nitrogen and oxygen.Their particles
are not light absorbent and are as small as the short
wavelengths of blue.Therefore,during the day,the blue light is
more efficiently scattered by the air and we see the sky as
blue.When seen from space the earth appears as a band of blue
at the horizon. Skies of other planets,for example Mars,Venus,Jupiter and
Uranus have different hues. Why is the Mars sky red?Images sent back from the
Viking Mars landers in 1977 and from Pathfinder in 1997 showed
a red sky seen from the Martian surface. This was due to red
iron-rich dusts thrown up in the dust storms occurring from
time to time on Mars. The colour of the Mars sky will change
according to weather conditions. It should be blue when there
have been no recent storms, but it will be darker than the
earth's daytime sky because of Mars' thinner atmosphere. Venus's atmosphere is made up of carbon dioxide and
sulfur.It is so thick that it scatters colour of all but the
longest wavelengths,with sulfur adding a yellowish hue.The
venusian sky is thus seen as a reddish orange. Jupiter's gaint atmosphere is so dense that no light can
pass through to the surface.but in its upper
atmosphere,composed of ammonia ice particles,the sky is
blue-black and still farther down the sky appears red-brown. Uranus's atmosphere is rich in methane and composed of
hydrogen and helium.Methane absorbs the yellow and red light
letting the green and blue filter through.Hydrocarbons remove
some of the blue,so the skies of Uranus are blue-green.
