Thank you so much, Jersea
This is beautiful and when I am focused and calm, I too strive for such enlightenment. I recognize your path in God and believe it is everything that you express in your poem.
Thank you, Virgil!
A nice prayer Nik.
Oh, Nik, you may be depressed but don't ever feel forsaken. You are definitely not. Hey I hope you're better. Sorry I couldn't try to cheer you up earlier, but I've been away.
Thank you all so much for all your kindness. I hope you will not be worried about me. I have actually been 99% of the time very happy, blissful even, and peaceful, for the last two months. Just these two days I fell down some. As Swami Vivekananda stated so many times, no one else has the praise or blame but myself. Now, all is perfectly well. Thank you again for your kind words.
I'll pray for your happiness and peace of mind, Nick.
I felt rather surprised with a person like you saying such things. Hope it will pass soon. Yes, Maya is very strong.
I also believe firmly in God and I tell Him that I am still rather worldly with lot of shortcomings and temptations. So just keep bearing up with me.
One day, in some life I hope to follow Him in totality - sailing with my both feet on a boat going towards Him, and not like present sailing, where one feet is in the worldly boat and other is in the spritual boat. When that will happen, then I hope to defeat Maya.
People's adverse words and actions should not affect me then in any way.
I hope you feel better soon, Nik. Have faith
Please don't be sad. Revel in God's love for you. People have to come to any understanding they acquire on their own power, you know.
Is this a poem...? I'm kinda depressed myself. Sweet.
This is beautiful
Thank you! It was!
Happy Janmastami to you, too!
Janmastami is Krishna's birthday.
Happy happy. I have no idea what Janmastami is, but hope you have fun. Nice to see you Nik.
Oh cool, Virgil!
I got some more experience with chapatis and I can make them perfectly now. It turns out puris are fried, and that's why everyone says they are not as healthy. I was told you can make chapatis with ghee in them before you cook them, but this person said it's better not to. I think I'd like to try it though, I think it will taste better.

Oh is that what that is. I've had that in Indian restaurants. Actually it sounds like at some point I've had everything mentioned by everyone in this blog, just don't remember the names of the foods. There is a section in Manhatten that has a long string of Indian restaurants and college school friends and I would get to go eat there.
