It is almost one year since the start of 1000petals, this colourful e-baby 🙂
Out of 170 posts I have chosen the top 10 – according to your, Google and WordPress ranking.These 10 became most popular for various reasons – however there is one thing that makes them similar: they all have some unique content that is probably not to be found in many sources (if any). Or if not for the content, then for the attitude, some very personal and different from the common one.
This fact makes me very happy, for it is exactly the reason why I am blogging so passionately: to share with you my insights, knowledge and experiences that make my life so happy and so fulfilled…
1000 thanks for your support and appreciation! And now… everybody`s darlings:
1. 2012: only 5 years to get ready for the Doomsday?
I remember reading about apocalyptical scenario 2012 one year ago: being a natural optimist I could not believe that dusky destiny. Being a realistic and scientifically-oriented person, I am not inclined to trust any prophecies either. Recently I´ve read a scientifically based article on 2012 which literally has rocked my imagination and awareness.
2. GENERATION S
They live almost the same life as others. You will not check them out of the crowd by their funny dress – they look quite ordinary. They behave as normal, nice people – you will not notice anything special at first sight. However a little more attentive look will identify this new generation.
3. 10 Reasons Why I Practise Sahaja Yoga
I don’t have to spend years living in the mountains to achieve enlightenment. I don’t have to give up anything or spend weeks in silence. I don’t have to learn mantras or wear special clothes or even try to clear my mind. The meditation simply happens spontaneously. The classes are easy and fun, and as long as I keep up my daily ten minutes of meditation I find I am able to achieve a deep and peaceful meditation on a regular basis.
4. Why women love generous men
Most women love generous men. At least I never met any who does not (please let me know if you are a woman and disagree with that). Are men actually aware of that fact? And if not than why? Because the ladies keep silent on the topic?
I do not belive in God. And I never did. I grew up in the Soviet Union with my both parents being convinced atheists. However my grand-grandparents who were born and grew up in Czar Times, were very religious. One grand-grandmother was known to be a holy person in her village; another one could heal with praying.
6. The tree of life. Modern version.
Look at this one! – how huge and majestic (though not really harmonious) the crown of this tree is. It stays along and proud of itself in the frosty morning light… I find it a perfect illustration to the condition of a modern man, to refer to the following metaphor given by my favorite author Gregoire de Kalbermatten.
After developing my first blog ShaktiPower that is generally about woman and beauty I found out that there is still much more I want to share with the world.
People say that is the first thing that strikes about me – that my eyes glow. However there is nothing special about it, as it is just one of the 1000 pleasant side-effects after getting the Self-Realisation (Kundalini-awakening) and practicing Sahaja Yoga.
9. The importance of pleasing your wife
Two interesting stories on the same topic came across my way backed up with my personal observations.A friend of mine has told me about one interesting phenomenon he has noticed: the better is the present to his wife for the Christmas, the better is their family life in both material and non-material aspects! He understood that giving a nice present to his wife (nice means something what she really likes) means paying respect to the family principle, as a wife is the soul of a family.
10. Beautiful languages of the world: Urdu
Since a long time I hear about the poetical beauty of Urdu Language, and finally I got curious enough to find out more about it. Urdu, the mational language of Pakistan, was created around the 16th century in Centryl Asia. Interestingly the origin of Urdu is nothing like poetic, the word “urdu” comes from Turkish word “ordu” meaning “camp” or “army”. The language was used as unifying communicaiton tool betweel Muslim soldiers of Persian, Arab and Turkish origin.
