A Question of Story, by Thomas Berry

 ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. (Genesis 1:1-4King James Version)
God Created the world out of about 17 billion years of chaotic darlkness.The darkness and emptiness in our short lives are nothing for the Power and Love of God, Who Can Make us dazzling diamonds in a nano second if we trust in Him.


Be Nobody, by Lama Marut

In 1955, I joined the Western Railway as an Apprentice Fireman ‘A’, to pursue my career as a Steam locomotive Driver.

The steam locomotive is the only motive Power in the world where it is required to create the energy and move the wheel. All other Motive Machines, whether, Electric, Petrol, Diesel, ATF, or Cryogenic driven, move at the push of a button. The Driver /Pilot look at the dashboard and ahead. In the roaring steam locomotive days of the 50’s, 90% of the time was spent in watching the fire bed, steam & water gauges, ensuring satisfactory energy output.
We started off as khalasis, and then moved up the scale. As Firemen, we interchange duties with the khalasis.I still remember heaving a huge amount of coal to the foot of the tender for the Leading Fireman to stoke the Iron Horse. Then, shielded by the mountain of coal in the chute, i would lie on the stack, with a large coal for my pillow, soot covered and sweat drenched, exhausted! I would glance up at the ethereal beauty of the dancing stars in the velvet sky. I would marvel at the Wisdom of the Creator, Who Could Effortlessly Keep the universes and galaxies on path, travelling at Mach speed. A Life time realization that 'God's In His Heaven, All's Right with the world!
For many years i struggled to understand this, but it brought me great peace when i realized the truth of Gita II.47:’you are only entitled to your duty, not the fruits thereof.’


Attachment is Habitual Thinking, by Miao Tsan

 Thomas Kempis, in his best seller, ‘Imitation of Christ’ says that if we were to fulfill one New Year’s Resolution every year, as time goes by, we’d be near perfect human beings. On the contrary, in our Annual stocktaking, some of us find that we’re worse off than before.
Our habitual faults/sins are like a snake laying chickpea eggs, while nesting in the neuro channels of our Brain /Mind. When we resolve to abandon our evil desires /actions, we kill the snake. However, the eggs are hatched, and grow into the same evil we renounced, so that we are back in our evil ways. Despite reflecting the sunlight for centuries, the Moon is still full of negativity. Yet we love the Moon more than the Sun. What matters is smiling & sharing the joy of Life among all those lovely people we meet along our journey through Life.


When You Don't Choose Love You Choose Fear, by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross & David Kessler

 "So the divine love is sacrificial love. Love does not mean to have and to own and to possess. 
It means to be had and to be owned and to be possessed. It is not a circle circumscribed by self, it is arms outstretched to embrace all humanity within its grasp." - - Archbishop Fulton Sheen"

Mighty in Contradiction: Love Powerfully, by Patty De Llosa

 The power of love to change bodies is legendary, built into folklore, common sense and everyday experience. Love moves the flesh, it pushes matter around... Throughout history, "tender loving care" has uniformly been recognized as a valuable element in healing.
