Trying To Recall

I read somewhere: "It is a positive aspect of our character to believe in God, goodness, love, and self-contentment. Sharing little things and showing affection towards others gives us happiness and a feeling of completeness. Cultivate a sense of humor and that will definitely light up your gloomy sky".

***For my memory and review, i wanted these lines in my post***

It's been ages i stopped doing any kind of regular exercises and workout. Sometimes swimming, little bit beach volleyball and couple of times gym workout that's what i am doing in recent months. But my daily routine used to quite different when i was a teenager. Yoga and jogging used to be the most important daily activities that i never used to skip. If jogging was enforced by my dad, Yoga was something which i passionately learned and regularly practiced until i was seventeen. When i was fourteen, me along with a group of friends went to one famous vipassana center (Yoga/Meditation Ashram) near our city. This ashram was built in traditional old hermitage style and used to run in the same old fashioned way. I still remember that 10 day stay in that beautiful ashram and the wonderful impressions that meditation training left on me. We used to have 5-6 hrs daily regime of meditation in a well built underground hall. Aashram also used to provide small individual private rooms for those who wanted to practice vigorous meditation for longer periods. These rooms were designed to resemble the olden day caves where sages used to perform penance for longer periods of time. I think this was the great attraction and thrilling experience for young students like us at that moment. The simple meditation techniques i learned in those days are the most valuable tools that still help me to combat with the all kinds of stresses that i accrue in this fastidious and mechanical world.

I badly need my teenage discipline back, completely at my will. Will I??

Can't Stop Posting This :)

When my friend told me this joke, the next minute i have signed into my blog and posted it. Juss can't stop myself sometimes, huh!!!

After she woke up, a woman told her husband, "I just dreamed that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine's day.What do you think it means?"

"You'll know tonight," he said.

That evening, the man came home with a package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, she opened it - to find a book entitled,
"The meaning of dreams"

I can't stop laughing for a while and hope you too :).
