Promise Yourself...

The following was a part of a training course that I attended. I thought I should share it here.

Promise Yourself....
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best and expect only the best.
To be enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, to strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Are we connected?

After a long break from this page, I now come back with a different post. This post is not fact with proof, just my thoughts, there can be views for/against it.

Sometimes it happens that a friend calls up just after seconds we thought about him/her. Two good friends utter the same words at many different contexts (they dont have to!). Some of the small things that happen appear as though we expected it to happen. I have observed it a lot of times in my own life. With a close set of friends/relatives with whom I have spent quality time together, I have observed this connectivity. Many times (really!) in my college days, I would feel at random times that I should call my home and voila - my dad calls me up! There were many occasions I have observed that me and my close friend think/speak the same words. One can argue they can be coincidences, but there are too many such occurences that they cannot be accepted as mere coincidences. Close friends ping each other at the same time(I have proof for this:))! The power of thought or telepathy or whatever it is called - it is really amazing when you feel it! I have heard from two other people that they have also experiences such moments in their lives. If this can occur in a normal life with people who dont deliberately try to connect to someone, it might be possible to form a network of thoughts if given the time, effort and concentration it needs. I am sure there will be many explanations to this and real life experiences, the search of which I reserve for later. Right now, I am not aware of the science behind it and I dont really want to at the moment, because this thing is just nice as it is:)
