Can we Really be Lucky?



*


Can we Really be Lucky?



Luck means occurring by chance. It implies that
  • Luck just happens by chance, and
  • It cannot be planned or obtained by intention.
  • You cannot influence the result of a lottery, or a roll of dice, for example. So you cannot win by wishing or hoping.
    Yet, apart from this you can be lucky. Here's how...
    1. Know what you want

    If you don't know what you want, how will you know when you find it?
    As a student, I was amazed that when I had learned a new word, I seemed to see it and hear it everywhere. It was as if after learning it, the world presented it to me on every occasion! Of course, the word did not occur more frequently - my awareness of it was greater! I heard it when previously, I had ignored it. Similarly, opportunities may surround us, but do not observe them? Opportunities of all kinds surround us, and we recognise them when we have good fortune in mind.

    2. Let everyone know what you want

    If you let others know what you want, they can pass on to you useful information and tips, but when unaware of what you want, they obviously can't help you.

    3. If at first you don't succeed, then try, try and try again, and then give up and do something else

    We do not know which of the several or many things we try will work. Eighty per cent, at least of what we try will not bring the dramatic results we want. Of the remaining 20 per cent, only 4 per cent will be of much use. Successful people try many things. Try, try, try again, but then do something else! If a tiger wants your dinner, let it have it! You can always come back with your gun.


    4. Be a lifelong learner

    I have often heard people talk about their dream, perhaps a new business. Yet many choose something they know nothing about. They do not prepare themselves by learning all they can, before they make the jump!
    Those who succeed become experts in their area of interest. They read, study, listen and ask questions, and gain experience.
    5. Trust your intuition

    Respect your hunches and 'feelings.' This does not mean you blindly gamble on a hunch, it means that you give consideration to what appears, at first, to be irrational 'feelings' which may be clues from the unconscious mind which your conscious has missed. Respect your hunches and check them out! Remember may famous scientific discovers derived from sudden hunches or insights. But the scientist then had to prove them.
    Also, intuitions might come to you gently and quietly. By listening to them and being aware of them you can open up the opportunities in your life.
    6. Believe you will succeed

    Many really great achievements did not come overnight. They were often proceeded by many false starts, and difficulties. Maintain your faith that you will soon succeed in small things and in time in great ones. Never give up on your dreams... You will succeed sooner than you thought...

    Did Atlantis exist, or was it merely a fantasy conjured up by Plato,
    and kept alive through wishful thinking over the centuries?
    *

    If it did exist, where can we find it’s remains?

    IF ONLY



    If Only...

    *
    If only things could be as simple as the greens of a tree…
    If only they thought a bit deeper about you and me…
    If only they would let us out of those cages and just set us free…
    *
    If only I was a bit tougher maybe I could deal…
    If only I was a bit less sensitive to barely feel…
    If only I could stand still, not bend or kneel…

    *
    If only winter would be less chilly than it is…
    If only we could always feel the pure summer bliss…
    If only those people who leave we just never miss…

    *
    If only we can sleep as sound as babies do…
    If only we could easily learn things we never knew…
    If only smiles were many and disappointments were a few…
    *
    If only we could realize how some actions affect the life of others too…
    If only the sky could always be so pure, so clear and so blue…
    If only we can feel the pressure which constantly place on us…
    *
    If only stars always shine with the passion of reds…
    If only we could sleep on cloudy cotton beds…
    If only it was safe

    SUNDAY MORNING





    Some years ago, before the sun decided to hide behind the clouds and chills of the night crept into the day, someone told me that true love is just a myth; it is something authors invented and it only existed in their books!

    I sighed and for a second there, I almost believed…

    Then, I met a love story, one which has been there for years and is still going on…

    I doubted again: True love does exist!

    To another couple I dedicate this piece of writing…

    Maybe some deny the existence of love and its great power,
    Yet others still sense, smell, taste and live love by the hour.

    Maybe we've never been introduced to love some time before,
    And maybe it just didn't yet find its way to our door.

    Yet seeing those two together made me again see and believe,
    Love does exist, love in its purest form, one which won't lie or deceive.

    Their fight for each other made my heart warm and tingle with bliss,
    Their struggle with the world to embrace that love filled me with happiness.

    Nothing is always perfect and they knew they needed to hold on,
    The world outside their love is irrelevant, their fear of tomorrow almost gone.

    Seeing those two fight, play and joke around , I must say -
    So thank you both for everything and your love I will always protect and adore…

    YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE

    You are my sunshine,
    My only sunshine.



    You make me happy
    When skies are grey.
    You'll never know, dear,
    How much I love you.
    Please don't take my sunshine away...

    BERLIN




    The Story of Berlin is more than just an exhibition - it is an exciting journey through 800 years of Berlin history. Berlin was founded in the 13th century, it was the capital of the kingdom of Prussia from 1701 and the capital of the German Empire (1871–1918), the Weimar Republic (1919–1932), and the Third Reich (1933–1945). The city was divided between 1945 and 1990 into East Berlin and West Berlin, which division grew out of the zones of occupation established at the end of World War II. The Berlin Wall, a wire and concrete barrier, was erected by the East German government in August 1961 and dismantled in November 1989.
    The city has no definite centre and pockets of attractions are dotted all over. The densest array of sights lies to the east of the Brandenburg Gate, on either side of Unter den Linden. West Berlin's centre has less to offer. It's interesting to take a look at the broken shard of a church, the Kaiser Wilhelm and many museums...Let's watch a slideshow...
