Suffering seeps in When past is allowed to dwell so much in the mind that one hopes only for the future, without living in the present.
And without living in the ‘Now ‘ mind is always dominated by illusions which either don’t exist or may not happen in the future.
Happiness is sense of self totally engrossed in something in the Now. When we think that we are what the past has made us , we lose our true identity . We continue to live that past again and again until it ruins us completely.
We can only recover from all sufferings by denying our mind the sense of time or psychological time .
When we feel our presence in the ‘Now’ and nothing beyond it , we truly feel the warmth of happiness cuddling us with all the beautiful creation around us
A very fast paced, emotional, gripping and thought provoking story written by Hank Green, brother of John Green. Probably that was the reason I bought this book but I ended up becoming a fan.
This book is so densely crafted like there is a whole new city inside a dream. There are puzzles to solve in that city which are at various locations, one of them is under the tile of a restaurant and it is very important to solve those puzzles because the whole world is dependent on that. You will be compelled to get sucked inside the imagination of the writer plus there is a twist in the end. Maybe a sequel is coming.
Fame comes with a lot of responsibility, it has the power to mould humanity. Protagonist, April May constantly fights with her inner turmoil and fears to create a meaning in this world by giving purpose to herself and humanity. Her struggles, her journey is so deeply written that you will fall in love with her in the end. This work of fiction is perfectly mixed with strong emotions and you will come across some enlightening quotes as well. On of them is-
We are each individuals, but the far greater thing is what we are together, and if that isn’t protected or cherished, we are headed to a bad place.
It is a perfect work of fiction which is equally touching. Overall a remarkable debut by this author!
Some people don’t believe in God and always question him. Most of us define God as the one who has created this universe , the one who has created us and try to find him. But we never realise our creator is around us, the one who make sure that we always smile, the one who sacrifice so much for us to make sure our lives become a perfect one. She is the one who has created us , our mothers.
My mother sacrificed her life for me, for her family. But still I see her in my dreams, alive and always inspiring me to move ahead in life by overcoming all the difficulties. I know she is watching me from heaven and guiding me in the right direction through one or the other way.
You can’t deny the fact that Mothers are epitome of sacrifice. Sometimes A son can go wrong but a mother is never wrong!
Hats off to all the mothers of the world. Make her feel special every day so that you don’t regret later!
Hello Friend, Life sometimes become very difficult to lead. When you are happy and things are going in your way, you want to enjoy every moment of it and you don’t want that moment to pass. But my dear friend, happiness is a very rare commodity which do not last eternally. Bad time will also come and will shake you from the inside very badly but you are not suppose to give up. One of the greatest Roman philosopher, Cicero had rightly said, “Whoever is brave is a man of great soul”. You should follow his words, you should learn from the words of greats, you should learn from the nature, the earth and the sky. You should be like water in difficult times and flow like a river on rough, and difficult path very smoothly. Like water, transform yourself into ice in extreme cold and in extreme summer, transform yourself into vapor to reach the sky and come back on earth in the form of rain to slake the thirst of livings. In short, you should learn to mould yourself according to the difficult situations like water and face every difficult situation with courage. You should learn to become tough like earth who had seen the worst days of her life, from being a ball of fire to a ball of ice but she never complained about that and at the same time she sacrificed every day to see you alive. My dear friend life is very short , do not panic in difficult times, face every difficulty with courage. Life is like a war and you are suppose to fight it till the end , till your last breath. So be a Warrior! “How well he fell asleep! Like some proud river, widening towards the sea, Calmly and grandly, silently and deep, Life joined eternity.” -Samuel .T. Coleridge with love and support, piyush
