The ‘Yes’ that changed the world

It is quite interesting to reflect over the ‘yes’ that Mary said at the moment of Annunciation to the will of God, did she ever understood it at that moment we do not know. However, we know that the ‘yes’ which she said changed her course of life and that of the entire world. It is also quite true that the ‘yes’ which she said just did not intend an ‘yes’ alone rather it meant more ‘nos’ in her life, to be in accordance with the ‘yes’.

To be something or with someone would mean not to be with many other things or with many other people

 

 

Conviction

When one acts according to convince one has no right to speak about the conviction…

Convictions can often demand much from our lives, often we may be the odd one out because of our conviction. Yet you need to hold on to it because it is your faith that you are right. 

How do we Select People?

It’s interesting to reflect, how do we select people to work with us. I am sure we will always look for the best and the most talented, and we will be extra careful if they had to carry that mission forward..

Yet, I was facinted by the way Jesus selected his disciples, knowing that they have to carry this mission to the ends of the Earth. He never looked for the best and most talented, rather he called the ordinary men who was engaged in the daily chores of life and made them extra ordinary to carry his message…

Thinking on…. I think I know why I am here…. THANK YOU LORD

Selfishness

Selfishness has become so much part of our life or rather we can say with the help of development in psychology we have come to realize the role of selfishness in every action of ours. 

When a father wants his child to be the best….he is selfish

When a teacher wants his students to perform well in the exams…she is selfish

When a doctor wants his patients to get well … he is selfish

Just say we cannot take away selfishness from our action but we can make our intentions better. 

Point to ponder: We speak of looking from the others point of view but it often ends up for my advantage.

Every disappointment will lead to hope

hope1It is an interesting observation in life that every disappointment leads one to a new hope.

Hegel, one of the modern philosophers would speak of a process of thesis, antithesis and synthesis as the cyclic process on which carries on in the world and in its history.

It is also true in the case of disappointment and hope. It is clearly understood in a political context. When we elect a new government everyone has the hope that they will do the best for the people but often they disappoint the people. However, in the next election we elect another group with the same hope.

So the rhythm of disappointment and hope is carried on life.

Prayer

Let me ask you…

Do You Pray? and What do you pray for?
Prayer is often understood as a presentation of list of requirements and things required to God.

So the question, When do pray is also quite relevant?

Often we pray when we are in trouble and when we have issues which we feel can’t be managed by us alone…

Said all these… I feel

Prayer is just any of above said rather…

Prayer is a request made to God for a state of mind to accept His will in our life…whatever it may be…

It made a difference in my life…try it out

മലയാളി സൗഹൃദം – അതിഥി ദേവോ ഭവഃ

Its wonderful to be together!!!

Words and Notion

Good morning world..

This is one of my older posts. Just reposting it with a few more links added.

I just attempted to identify the malayalee readers/writers in this wordpress world. Now seems some of them are not much active as used to be earlier. Still I am keeping their link as such. And added the mallu bloggers whom I came to know after that.

ഇണക്കങ്ങളിലും പിണക്കങ്ങളിലും സൗഹൃദം കാത്തുസൂക്ഷിക്കുന്നവരാണു നമ്മള്‍ മലയാളികള്‍.

അതിഥികളെ എന്നും ഹൃദയത്തോട് ചേര്‍ത്തു പിടിക്കുന്ന എല്ലാ മലയാളി എഴുത്തുകാര്‍ക്കും വായനക്കാര്‍ക്കും വേണ്ടി ഞാന്‍ ഒരു സൗഹൃദ വിരുന്നൊരുക്കുന്നു.

മലയാളം കഥകളും കവിതകളും ലേഖനങ്ങളും വായിക്കാനിഷ്ടപ്പെടാത്ത ഏതു മലയാളിയാണുള്ളത്? ബ്ലോഗ്ഗിങ്ങ് ലോകത്തില്‍ പുതിയ പുതിയ മലയാളി എഴുത്തുകാരെ കാണ്ടുമുട്ടുമ്പോള്‍ എന്തെന്നില്ലാത്ത ഒരു സന്തോഷം അനുഭവപ്പെടാറില്ലെ?.

സമയക്കുറവെന്ന വില്ലനെ മാറ്റി നിര്‍ത്തിയാല്‍ പിന്നെ നമ്മുടെ മുമ്പിലെ തടസ്സം മറ്റു മലയാളി ബ്ലോഗ്ഗേഴ്സ്സിനെ  കണ്ടുപിടിക്കയെന്നുള്ളതാണു.

എനിക്കറിയാവുന്ന കുറചു നല്ല എഴുത്തുകാരെ ഞാന്‍ ഇവിടെ പരിചയപ്പെടുതട്ടെ. തീര്‍ച്ചയായും ഇവരില്‍ നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കറിയാവുന്നവരുമുണ്ടാകും.

മലയാളത്തില്‍ ബ്ലോഗ് ചെയ്യുന്നവരും മലയാളം വായിക്കുന്നവരും ഈ ലിസ്റ്റിലുള്‍പ്പെടും. ഇതിലുമധികം പേരെ ഒരു പക്ഷേ നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കറിയാമായിരിക്കും.

അതുകൊണ്ടു നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കറിയാവുന്ന മറ്റു മലയാളി ബ്ലോഗ് ലിങ്ക്സ് ഷെയര്‍ ചെയ്യീല്ലേ..

ഇതു റിബ്ലോഗ് ചെയ്യുന്നതിലൂടെയും നമ്മുടെ ഈ സൗഹൃദസംഗമം ത്വരിതപ്പെടുത്താം.

വിവാഹം

നിങ്ങൾ ഒരു കപ്പൽ യാത്രക്ക് പോവുന്നതിനു മുൻപ് ഒരു തവണ പ്രാർത്ഥിക്കണം. ഒരു യുദ്ധത്തിനാണെങ്കിൽ രണ്ടു തവണ പ്രാർത്ഥിക്കുക എന്നാൽ വിവാഹം കഴിക്കാൻ ഒരുങ്ങുകയാണെങ്കിൽ മൂന്നു വട്ടമെങ്കിലും പ്രാർത്ഥിച്ചിരിക്കണം…

(It speaks about the preparation that one needs to give before entering into marriage)

Expression of Faith

How can I express my faith? What extent can I go in the expression of my faith?

I was in a village in Mysore during the Ganesh Chaturathi, I was really shocked by the amount of noise that was made during the feast. Every corner of the village had a statute of Ganesha and everyone was competing to be louder than other. (Its also quite true in that case of loud songs played in the churches and the other places of worship)

Expression of Faith??? I don’t know. Will god be happy because we play songs and disturb everybody else…

Why do You Look for the Living among the Dead?

Do I believe that Christ is risen?

The lack of faith that I manifest in life at times questions my faith in Christ as a living God. Often He becomes just a psychological fulfilment rather than a living experience- living experience of a living person. 

May that is why I remain even after all these prayers and recollections without much change…
