    Viral, Read through your thoughts and it mostly dealt with being selfless. I think there are 2 selfless acts that God has done and which we human beings cannot emulate. 1. Creation 2. Dying for the sinS of mankind. The concept is old, as old as the beginings of the Universe, as we know it. Acknowledging this brings one to Grace that none of our selfless duties can ever come close... Just a thought...thanks for both Nipun's and your ideas. On one of your meditation sessions, can you try meditating on this verse from the Bible... Isiah 53:5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His wounds we are healed. -- Love and Prayers for Nipun, you and your group of friends who make the Internet such a joy!
