The Secret's Scrolls

From The Secret Daily Teachings 

1) There is no doubt that when using the law of attraction for the good of everyone, you are connecting yourself to great power. However, the law is also available to you individually so that you may live your life to the fullest. When you live your life to the fullest you have so much more to give others.
Your pain and misery does not help the world. But your joy and your life lived fully uplifts the world. 

2) Isn't it great to know that you cannot control your world from theoutside? To try and control things on the outside feels impossible because it would take so much work, and in fact it is impossible according to the law of attraction.
To change your world all you have to do is manage your thoughts and feelings on the inside of you, and then your whole world changes.

3) When you look at yourself and feel dissatisfaction about any part of you, you will continue to attract feelings of dissatisfaction, because the law mirrors back to you exactly w…

My small weekend haul

This weekend was a bit change for me, as I finally planned and decided to go out of my four walls, and see the world outside. Actually, a lot of its credit would go to my broken iron too. I had to buy a new one, and because of that I had to go out to Star Bazaar at Koramangla. On my way to the place, I landed on the Health and Glow store, and picked up some beauties there. Below is the list:

1) Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick: Rouge-a-levres liquide Labial Liquido

2) Mannings Dental Floss

3) Mannings lemongrass & ginger spa exfoliating bath scrub

I wrote a review for this here at Indian Make up and Beauty Blog.

4) St. IVes Softening Whipped Silk body lotion

5) Dabur gulabari rose water spray

6) Vega Face pack brush

Needless to say, like any other girl I was really happy to shop for something beyond essentials. I have still to try these things, and planning to post the reviews here accordingly. Have a great week ahead!! :-)

I want some time for myself!

How many times, life makes you feel that you really need it more? I mean the times, when you really need to get a life of your own, along with some peaceful time for yourself. I sometimes feel, I have been living an "ultra" mechanical life. In fact, now I even look like a zombized- robot!!..

It has been ages, since I went for a long walk in woods, listening to my favorite music on my ipod. I have not seen a clear sky at day time, not even at night since months. Right now, I have placed a beautiful "Sun rise" wall paper on my desktop, and I feel really blessed just looking at it for some time, when my team mates aren't around. I wonder, if they start doubting my sanity, looking at me staring blankly at a "sun rise" wall paper.

I have hardly ever gone to a beauty parlor, may be once in a year or six months. I have never spent much time and energy on pampering myself, except for going once for that foot reflexology massage and then Ayush therapy center. I …

Poems of Passion by Rumi

Love is considered to be the most sacred feeling of all. When you feel love for someone, you are at the highest vibration of your being. A feeling of pure love can overpower and purify any  other feeling, be it positive or negative. There can not be a better way to cleanse your soul, mind and inner-being, than a pure and intense feeling of love, as it is rightly said - 

"Let the fire of love, purify your within, let it burn you, cleanse you, purify you and take you with itself to the source power. "
The name Mowlana Jalaluddin Rumi stands for Love and ecstatic flight into the infinite. Rumi is one of the great spiritual masters and poetical geniuses of mankind and was the founder of the Mawlawi Sufi order, a leading mystical brotherhood of Islam.

Rumi was born in Wakhsh (Tajikistan) under the administration of Balkh on September 30, 1207 to a family of learned theologians. Escaping the Mongol invasion and destruction, Rumi and his family traveled extensively in the Muslim lands…

A Gift of Love - Music

I am writing this post while listening to the divine “A gift of love” series. The music is indeed enchanting, intoxicating and may make you drift into the infinity, along with its smoothness. A must have for all the people “passionately in love”. Even if you are not very “passionately” in love, you might fall in love after listening to this series.

(Caution: This is entirely MY taste of music, which some people find weird.)
The music is kind of trance, and can’t be called a complete "song and dance" kind of music. It is a fusion of meditative music, trance and arabic music, along with some verses from the "Poems by Rumi", spoken by Deepak Chopra, Demi Moore and their friends.
Below is one of my all time favorites of this particular series. All other songs in the series follow the same kind of touch:
