1000 petals by axinia

the only truth I know is my own experience

Crème de la crème of this blog (30 out of 300 posts) October 29, 2008

My passionate reader, Sahaja has suggested me to make a list of my favourite  1000petals reads. I have a widget listing the most popular posts by my readers, but they are not necesserily the ones that I love the most 🙂

My favourite posts give a short and clear impression of the core values of this blog.  If you like the first abstract, just click on the title to read the whole post.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

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.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Positive thinking? No, thank you!

I am probably one of the most positive people you have ever met (even being able to claim that is a sign, isn’t it). In fact I think positive all the time and it is difficult for me to see a problem somewhere where most of the people see it. But since I heard about the concept of positive thinking several years ago I keep opposing that theory, trying to explain the unnatural character of it. Here are some quite strong arguments.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

I do not believe in God.

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.

 Once, when I was 8 years old, I bet with my grand-grandma Nura (who was a deeply religious Christian-orthodox) that God did not exist. I said: “I will spit now in the sky. If there is God he will punish me immediately!” – Nothing happened afterwards; I won the bet and was even more convinced in my atheism.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Freedom is Ego

Freedom is the favorite mantra of the western society. It is the magical word people use left and right to explain their most odd interests and ideas. Freedom is on top of the value system. But how can anybody be free and make choices based on so called freedom when he does not know himself??

We feel that we are free to make our choices: the choice between toast or sandwich or maybe the choice between pizza or pasta. Fine.

Now the clothing: how can we be free persons if we are actually forced to buy the things that are right now in, otherwise we just don’t get anything else in the shops.

No need to mention so called political freedom when every President selections our poor brains are being manipulated to such extend that God save us from knowing it in details! (more…)

To all my dear friends and silent readers!

Being such an Internet-fan I can not imagine a week without blogging, surfing, commenting, etc. As impossible it looks to me now, I will have to survive without blogging next days. But it is also very refreshing and relaxing… And that is what I actually call holiday.

I am leaving for one week holidays and will not be posting till Thursday. In the meanwhile you can also read my older posts 🙂 Presently there are 264 posts on this blog, you may like to read some of them, for instance the following:

This rose is for you! June 20, 2008

Yes, this rose is for YOU and you only! – whoever you are, a random visitor or my passionate reader…

I shot this photo some time ago and was keeping it save for some very special post. Or some very special person…. I find this rose so breath-taking gentle and alive, that I wanted to share it on a very, very special occasion. And suddenly I realised that the most special occasion is to present this virtual rose TO MY READER.

Please, take it and enjoy it. It comes from the bottom of my heart.

You can copy, forward, do whatever you like – it is YOURS.

LOVE, axinia
