Book Review – A New Earth – By Eckhart Tolle

Breaking the ice:

This is a book everyone MUST read. And here’s the thing about this book – it is very hard to catch on to the lingo at first, if you are not used to it already. It has very deep terms – ego, being, consciousness, form, formless, a lot of analogies, references to religious teaching (ALL religious teachings), presence, awakening…

The Job Search

Job search is a full-time job in itself..

When you are searching for a new job – for whatever reasons, it is the same story all over again. There are two sides to it – one,  when you do not have a job and you are searching for one, and two, when you already have one and you are searching for another one (for whatever reason and there are innumerable).  Continue reading

Someone stop this time…

Someone please stop this time, or at least tell me what’s going on with it going so fast.. seriously!

Almost 3 and 1/2 months gone?? But I just made my resolutions. I now seriously doubt that the earth is spinning a lot faster than earlier. Can a scientist please take this up and research on it. Please. You will do everyone a huge favour. Please. ok. Please.

So while I crib time’s flying and wait for a miracle to happen, let’s look at it the way it is – time & tide wait for none. Learnt it once, feel it every day.

Here are a few thoughts that will help jolt back to reality.

That itch…

So it’s now 20 days past from that time which we all resolved would be the turning point for all the habits we want to coming true for us.  Whereas I had never been an avid follower of the New Year Resolution fad, I did have a think about all the pending Must Do’s that I love writing so much. When?  When I read an article about how to set goals and follow through.

So here I was, on my desk, with a fresh notepad and a new pen – all set to write the ohh..so efficient S.M.A.R.T goals. I had 4 of them. All of them detailfully S.M.A.R.T.

Something to write

I have been planning to write for a while now. When at work some 793 things cross my mind that i would like to write about. And the ideas are just flowing. I feel so super talented and so proud about being a woman to have the ability to think 5 things at the same time.

So after 2 hectic and frustrating days of work, I finally committed the crime of leaving work on time! Did all the leisurely things that i wanted to do – like having the time to visit a friend, watching TV, talking to my husband, checking my personal email (wow right), eating dinner on time, doing the dishes, doing the dishes, cleaning the kitchen – boy I ‘m on fire!! I even had the time (and energy) to do laundry!

I am so super charged to write, I take the list out to write – winters,bosses, medicines, sickies, shoes, Pinterest. Hmmm….. Continue reading
