Awards season continues 😊💕
Thank you so much James for your nomination. It was such a pleasant surprise, James (Myplace3187) to get this nomination from you. James is an author and a great story teller. He also writes beautifully on music. Do visit his blog for some great and imaginative writing.
What goes around comes back. Am so glad to receive two nominations from Saba, my dearest niece. She is so God loving; it reflects in all her posts. And she loves her country and family equally. And I love her for that. But what I love most about her is the way she engages with all bloggers. She always has kind and appropriate words to say about everyone.
I would encourage all to visit James and Saba’s blogs and engage with them. You won’t be disappointed.
I am reminded of a saying of my Guru, Paramahansa Yogananda: When perfect friendship exists between two hearts or within a group of hearts in a spiritual relationship, such friendship perfects each individual.
I hope and pray that the effort we put into blogging brings us all closer together in God, in Love, in Peace and towards His perfection 💕🙏

1: Does fear thrive within us or we adopt from our surroundings?
Both. Some fear is inherent in our nature. All of us have it to some degree. Our surroundings, our environment adds to it or reduces it.
2: Why do we worry when we believe in God?
No true believer can ever worry. Fear and Faith can’t co-exist.
3: Is Altruism self-learned or just a condition of helping others in particular situations?
It is self learned like any other soul and heart quality. When we help others in a particular situation, our selflessness grows.
4: Can words reveal your personality?
To some extent, Yes. But Actions speak louder than words.
5: Where do you see me by the mirror of the words I use?
Love, Laughter and Compassion ( no anger 😂)

8: Do you know what is the object I’ve used as an award logo?
Looks like an ornate ashtray, as I can see cigarette holder grooves.

No, I don’t smoke. My wife used to tell me that she loves cigarette smell and if I was a smoker she would have surely started to smoke too 😊
