did you know that somewhere women can have babies at 60 years without troubles, and man at 90 are not treated as elderly, and check this out...many
people can live up to 140 years !?
would you believe that if someone would tell you during coffee time ... probably not.
But you would be wrong...
check it out:
this is amazing!
"my jaw dropped" when I was reading this article, I had no idea this is really possible and it brings me much motivation about how important it is to
have healthy way of living and eating!
Since I was a kid I joked about occasionally living at least till I got 100...for some reason.
It seems I should have said 140, heh
a reply to: Peeple
it was a good rant, as far as I am concerned. So its ok, do it more if you feel like it : )
nice that you have enjoyed it...
I get the same feeling from author, he seems really authentic and genuine.
well the thing about new names is connected in some circles with initiation into spiritual life with certain vows (aka. Tibetan: samayas ->true
meaning is much more than what we understand as vow ), although it is mainly depending of the tradition you are or were joining.
A complete new beginning, where all that a person was in the past is simply dropped and totally forgotten and since that moment one there are no
family, parents, sins, and everything else that happened...
only the master guru and other initiated brothers and sister, that is than your new family.
that was true meaning behind getting a new name in the past.
what we have today is more of a joke in most cases as far as I am concerned and the results is what happened with your friend.
But lucky for us, we are like day and night and I personally avoid generalization and putting people in baskets, hah
great point about veggies and poisons.
If you read the link above, you will see why...
now days, if we want to be proper veggies, we need to grow our own fruits and plants, if we want to be certain about quality, it is a pitiful that
things have come so far off track as you say in other words more "smelling words", hah
On that note, please don't beat yourself up too much about other people.
well I don't know how much you do that in reality..and maybe you are nothing like that, but I will say this any way....here it goes:
There will almost always be something irksome if you will be focused on others and it will make things only harder for you.
if you want to live spiritual - than don't bother too much about faults in others and only if they want, show them a different way if they ask and
want to learn or else don't bother wasting energy.
And I am only telling you this, because you seem very interested and farther you go on in spiritual path, more you will realize your own mistakes and
also mistakes of others...
but there is not much we can do about others if they don't want to listen and change...
so thinking will only make it worse and it is redundant in my opinion.
but a wiser man than me once said - "be the change you want to see in the world"
stick to that and improve yourself.
well ... at least this is my view.
or is it a rant...I dunno but I don't feel like I was writing a rant ...
i feel happy ...
or maybe I am just a hippy : )
