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.
Giving and forgiving: one case study April 27, 2008

Today is the Easter in Russia, and may be that is why I can`t leave the topic of forgiving. One intresting example I just experienced last week: it fits so well the theme and may be will help one or the other to overcome this greatest hurdle of non-forgiving.
Some days ago I was accused of doing something I definitly did not do – at least not on purpose. The thought of someone accusing me of doing something what is against my principles was not a pleasant one. Obviously it was a misunderstanding, and it had to be cleared.

7 ways to open your heart or how to feel love April 22, 2008

Following the love-flow of my last posts, I want to share with you some things one can help to feel love if you don`t. Why? You don`t believe it works?
The human heart gets closed every now and then. How often do we really feel our heart open, filled with love and joy? I believe that if it is not the case, we should try some “tricks” out. For the open heart is the source of joy and never-ending energy, good will and good mood.
These are things that open my heart, always. I wonder it works with you same way or may be you want to share your tricks?
1.Express your tenderness – at least to your relatives and close friends. Hugs and gentle touches not only feel like a balsam for the other, but also make you heart melt with gentleness and love.
2.“I LOVE” – is the most powerful mantra! It is not common in every culture and may sound rather bold at times, but it works! Obviously the message of this word is so magically strong, that it can dissolve a lot. Say it! I use this word often for telling about things/people I love. Or saying it to people I love. I can even say it to my boss, if I feel so.
3.Listen to the “happy” music. Normally I prefer Classical Music (Indian and Western), but sometimes I really feel like listening to some very simple “happy” music like ABBA or Al Bano & Romina Power (this stuff makes my heart leap with joy!) – may be because this music was created and sung by the couples in love?
