A random fact

This, therefore, is Mathematics; she reminds you of the invisible form of the soul; she gives life to her own discoveries; she awakens the mind and purifies the intellect; she brings light to our intrinsic ideas; she abolishes oblivion and ignorance which is ours by birth. —Proclus, c. 450

I guess that Mathematics is a woman, well, at least according to Proclus. Yay women!! Interesting.

Catch you guys later, must study for an exam.

Disappointed, but it’s ok!

Hello, my darling readers,

Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to go to the library as planned to check out Dicken’s novel!

I planned to get to the library before my 1:30p class but I got stuck at home writing a paper for my research project. After the 1:30p class, I had to attend a meeting with my team for a project we are working on for one of my classes. The meeting lasted longer than I expected! After the meeting ended, I got home only to eat something and to resume my research paper that is due tonight. I have still got a long way to go!!

Hopefully, I will be able to get that novel tomorrow after my classes end at 11a. I am super excited to read from an actual book! Ebooks are great but not as satisfying as holding a real book, don’t you agree?! Such a pleasure just turning the pages in a book!!

Well, guys, I have to continue working on my paper.

Happy reading and writing, y’all!

Yours truly,

Pomegranate Lover

A Peaceful Life

Money comes and goes, so it is never stable or permanent. True, money is vital to survive but should not be deemed the only important thing in one’s life. What a person truly needs is a peaceful life. A life that is spent being happy and making others happy. If we are not living peacefully, then it does not matter what we possess in life, be it a lot of money, jewelry, assets, properties, cars, and the like. If one is leading a peaceful life, then adversities turn into those that could be handled/managed without any difficulties, that too with a smile on his or her face. 

Just some random thoughts! Have a blissful day/night!

Move forward!

What is with time? It keeps on moving regardless of everything and everyone. It does its’ job and never ever waits for anyone to catch up. Why can’t it ever be more considerate about those like me, who fail to maintain steady relationships (not with opposite sex) with people? Why can’t ever go slow in good moments and fast in, you know, bad and terrible events? It is just not fair.

I think I should be more like the time. To keep on moving regardless of what has happened to me and my family. Never stop for anyone or anything. Just move, move, move forward. Past is past and I should not let it bother me in the future or even in the present. Pick what you need to survive in the present/future from the past, but don’t let it decide your life. Take over because it is your life. Live in the moment, enjoy it, if you can, savor the good moments. Life is a bitch (sorry, first time using it) but you gotta ride it no matter what.

According to Hindu scriptures, you might not be born as a human in your next life. Who knows? Maybe we will be born as a stone, bird, or whatever. So we better enjoy this life of ours while it lasts! Who knows where we will be after the end of our life cycle, right?

Enjoy your life, my dear humans!

I am aware that I got off track from where I started. Sorry, that is just how my mind is now, jumping uncontrollably. Right now, I am very very bored.

Well, talk to you guys later! Have fun doing whatever it is you are doing! 😀

Blank state of mind!!

Is my mind blank?

Can it be?

Is it even possible?

I do not think so.

I am sure that there is still some “juice” in it.

Then why do I feel like I have an empty mind?

I am aware that there are millions of thoughts running around.

But I can’t seem to capture at least one, let alone a few.

I have no control over it.

There is no order or discipline in there.

Only chaos yet I cannot even grab a thought

and run with it.

What a desperate state!

It is as if I am in control and not in control simultaneously.

Ridiculous, isn’t it?

You Are My Everything

My soul constantly weeps for you

It hasn’t stopped since…then.

My eyes long to see you

in your beautiful physical form.

You were my everything,

You still are,

and always will be.

I want you,

No, I need you.

No one can ever take your place,

it was yours,

and will always be yours only.

When I utter your sweet name,

it feels and sounds foreign,

a feeling that I immensely detest.

Many a time I wondered:

Are you safe?

Though I already know the answer.

You are safe,

You must be safe,

since you are with Him.

You are His child

and He takes care of His children.

Pick Your Gadget – A Tough Decision

Your local electronics store has just started selling time machines, anywhere doors, and invisibility helmets. You can only afford one. Which of these do you buy, and why?

Hmm…this is a tough one! Let me think.

It is a tie between time machines and anywhere doors. I have no use for invisibility helmets because well, I don’t need it. As simple as that. Maybe I do. Nah. Forget it.

The first time I read the prompt, I made a decision without thinking things through: Time machine. Why did I pick that? Simple, If I own that, I would be able to go back in time and see the ones that I miss today. I mentioned here that I lost someone very dear to me. I would want to go back just to see her. And maybe some other places too! Also, I will be able to see the memories I am so fond of once again right before my eyes, wouldn’t that be great?! Am I getting this time machine concept right? 😉

After rereading the prompt again, this is my decision: Anywhere Doors. I can go to any places I want to without having to drive from here to there in a car or even get on a plane. Just makes life easier, don’t you think?! You can just open the door wishing it to take you to a particular place you have in your mind and VOILA! You are there! It would be amazing! No need to spend your money on gas and other travel expenses that we face every day, right? Awesome! But then, do we need to worry about the traffic in this situation? That, I am not so sure.

Final decision is this: Anywhere Doors. Now, why didn’t I stick with my first choice? Going back in time means that I am not letting go of things that I am supposed to. I have to accept it sooner or later. It is better for me If I accept it sooner. We have all heard of the following phrase, “everything happens for a reason.”  It is true. Even if you have managed to change something you don’t like from happening, it will inevitably happen sometime in the near future because it is meant to. Maybe we have won a couple of times from stopping whatever it was, but those victories do not guarantee us that we will win again. Maybe we can delay it from happening so soon, but that does not mean that it will never happen. We just don’t have the power to stop things from happening;maybe we can in some situations, but not all. We can just be optimistic by thinking: “Whatever He does is for our own good.” Because He knows what is good for us and will do it accordingly. This, I believe.
