Prayers

hey
life at times can be such a bitch! u wonder wat is in ur hands and wat isnt..... at times we can boast of having things in our control.... but most of the times life takes u by surprise n shock...... 
when u c a person in front of u wither away... u cant do anythng for him.... al ur prayers sometimes u feel are jus geting blown away with the wind..... 
do prayers get answered... do the heavens care to listen n respond.....they say a sincere wish is alws granted... don we make sincere wishes .... i need a miracle right nw.... would the heavens oblige .... at times u really wonder if theres a style or way to pray.. when the desperation strikes and u jus dono who to pray to and how to ask.... is there a protocol Mr God??
today when i was praying for Granpa i  felt so small... i felt like a helpless child who is so dependent on his parents for everythng...... no matter hw old we become we r alws smaller than the forces above... the creator and his creation.........
and the only thng tat came instinctively to my silly brain was a bargain.... i said to God ok why don u jus take sometime off my quota of years and transfer the balance to his... and i looked up with tearful eyes wondering to myself tat why din i think of tat before..... it was a good deal if only the Almighty is ready for it......nothng kills u more than seeig the people u love; worry ,suffer and frown...... 
the only thnig i can do is to keep praying.... sometimes u wonder if god is nt listening cos u r not the best of human being.... is he partial.... or are his laws so strict that he jus wont mend his rules for you??????
i so hope its not like tat

Nups,

There are so many things which are in this. I am sorry that your grandfather is not well. God is totally impartial, if you believe in ONE. Prayers with pure heart with no selfish motive do get answered. God has sent each one of us with a purpose and with fixed tenure to do what we are supposed to. All one needs is to do your best and have compassion for others. We may not be able to mitigate misery of everyone financially but there is always a scope to do something for betterment. Even when you see an animal run over by a vehicle you may not be able to save it but do pray honestly for end of it's misery and grant of eternal peace to the soul - MUKTI or MOKASH. No matter how grown up we are, parents always are support for us. We should be honest in our dealings, work and love for others without any selfish motives. I know it is easier said than done. After all we are all humans with some need or the other. But we must try to be honest as stated so we can have inner peace.

Take care

Ur rite on the lines of 'Bruce Almighty'..Seen the movie??
I hv like lots to say here..
but lemme restrict myself and jus say..
Believe in ur own Faith that is more believable..rather than God..
I do that and it has kept me sane for a long time..works.

Anand :-)

Really sorry to know that your Grandfather isn't doing so well. But don't let loose hope and faith in prayers. Like the bible says "Faith can move mountains!" Jack summarized it so well in his comment :-) Remember what Brian weiss says? Our loved ones never leave our side. Never have, never will. I wish your grandfather a speedy recovery. Take care!

I will definitely pray for his well being. With such a loving grandchild, he just has to stay on, if for nothing else, then to be with her. Take care :-)

Heya Nupi nupi,

It's big but it's finally out..
The last part of the Legend of Krishna.

I worked as fast as I cud so ur not left unsatisfied...

Hope u like it. Lemme know wot u think.

Anand. :-)

nups said...

hey jack
thanks will read for sure..i jus got back in town ..so tat explains the delay

nups said...

hey anand
yup will check it out today itself.. thanks for informing though

Anand said...

Nups, I'm at wits end. I wudn't have a clue on why that happened. Wot the Lord does..why HE does...when HE does.. can any one really tell ?? I'm sure I cudnt.
All I can say is that majority of the people rumoured to have seen the real HIM..have not lived much to tell more...
Up to u to conclude.

Really sad to know this Nups. Be as strong as you can and be there for your family at a time when they need you the most. I am sure, where ever he is, he is watching over you and praying for your well being. Reminds me of what Brian Weiss says about never being along and always reuniting with our loved ones. Hope that gives you strength. Take care!
