Audio Books ,Weather And Few Blooms

I like cloudy weather and i am happy that it is cloudy here since two days. Though periodically but it is good to have clouds on our sky.Strong winds blow them away before they can shower some drop and while doing so they sprinkle quite amount of sand over the ground how annoying.I Hope this game of wind and clouds can hold extreme heat for more while .

I have finished  my first audio book "Alexander The Great "by Jacob Abbot through librivox.org   though it was not my first choice. I started to listen Brain And Personality by William Hanna Thomson firstly  which was brief detail how human brain rules the body and makes our mind .I found it really interesting but i found it difficult to comprehend the technical terms  while listening so i  search to read it online .It is an amazing book for those who want to understand relations between brain and mind (count me on top of the list).I am enjoying it thoroughly .I manage to read it after evening prayer for at least half hour.I am in the middle of it now.

History comes after science when it comes to read books in this part of age.I was fond of romantic  and adventurer in my youth. So i liked knowing about Greek conqueror  who within 13 years changed course of history by invading and conquering the huge part of land including part of Asia .Though  all he did was wasted right after his death and today no one know where he is even buried.The last famous words  of Alexander were not included in the audio book but if he had said so he earned real victory because his last words reveal his regret and sorrow for his earlier doings.
"Bury my body ,don't build any monument,Leave my hands outside  so that the world knows the person who won the world has nothing in his hands when dying"

According to writer in his last years of life Alexander had became a heavy drinker and was totally lost in pride and luxury  while considering himself a son of Jupiter (god).  His wars could not harm him more than  his  lust for keeping himself within extremely luxurious environment that killed him eventually .Jacob  Abbot the writer  called Alexander a mere Robber at the end of this book. And i think he is right because if one has power and authority to invade others home ,kill and rob them ,he will stay robber no matter how big emperor  he was.

I know world has beard such cruel rulers for centuries  and in every nation.I am happy that strategy for the ruling the world  has changed since 19th century and life has opened her comforting arms for common people finally. Though nations with power and resources still have found ways to control  weaker nations.But i am positive that some day people will learn that their real victory is to walk towards betterment of life on this planet by holding each other's hand and embracing mutual respect and equality.Because not a single man has come to this world with stamp by God (nature) that he has right to rule or decide for others.I can understand that Freedom is proves to being a new toy for people and they are being experimental with it in extreme excitement.But i think within one or two centuries they will understand finally that freedom is not a toy to play with but  gift and blessing  to use it for better and  higher cause that can benefit humanity as a whole on earth.

I am listening another audio book now .It is Science History Of Universe by Francis Rolt Wheeler. I will talk about it when it is finished.
My knee pain is quite better now by the grace of lord! I  feel always thankful for the kindness you all friends show in your comments!Thank you for being my strength and support friends .Creator will be repaying you for this sweet gesture i believe!
some yard blooms and garden that has tremendous healing energy.Wishing for some rain that can wash it's lovely face .



            captured last noon when clouds  covered the sky and hope for rain made me happy  

first seasonal smile of our climber 





wire you see here belong to removable shade that we have fixed in front yard to lessen the heat effect as sun reflection on yard marble floor  increase heat ,shade covers area  of ten feet in yard that works fine


 Keep taking good care and keep being kind to you and to all you have around you !

Blessings to all of you!

Trip To Some Beautiful Lake In Munich Surroundings By My Son

 

We are on the edge of extremely hot weather now .Hardly one or two week probably and our heat will turn on like a heater on us .So we feel happy to have some more moments in hands when our senses are working properly though our temps are reaching to forty already.

We live duel life .One with physique in outside world and other with spirit or soul in inside world .If weather inside is cool ,outside heat can be beard .But if there is heat inside ,even snow in outside world will burn us.So since i have gotten the formula how to survive in world out side by calming your inner universe i feel better and more positive in such extreme season too.

My eldest son visited  some beautiful place with friends last week.He did not mention the name and i too forgot to ask.But it was not far from the Munich city as they went and returned withing single day.I asked many times to my son hat he should take break and visit so he can be out of routine for while.I am happy he did this after moving into new residence.I hope they will do this time to time as it is necessary for mental and physical health specially when they are away from their families for long.Sharing some images below hope you will like them.

Frontyard Garden Glimpse And Blah Blah Blah

Hey Kind  Hearts 

Hope having pleasant time while wandering in the garden of of life. It is peak of spring time  here and i hope you are cherishing the smiles of nature gratefully!

It's tenth of April and we are enjoying mild temps until now by the grace of Lord. Knowing that extreme hot months are about to start such delightful weather seems gift indeed. My eldest son called yesterday and told that he is busy in many things including arranging new residence .He said he is expecting friends and they are going to cook together and play video game for while .To enjoy games on big screen he has bought a new fifty fives inches t.v.He said he will send photos of the house once it is arranged according to his vision.

I revisited to orthopedist yesterday .First visit was  one and a half week ago .I had knee pain though not during walk but when i try to bend my leg when sit for meditation.He was same doctor who treated my arthritis few years back. I told him that i feel no ache anywhere in body except knee.He said it is normal to have such pain after fifty and that it is not disease but condition that follows aging .He advised to stop walk and exercise  until i feel better. He also prescribed some medicines that are making my thoughts and actions slow.I will have to visit him after fifteen days from now.
Despite of being slow i continued my newly adopted hobbies  listening audio books and learning algebra.With drugged mind algebra is being more challenging to me but i completed  the first level thankfully though after  watching  videos  at Khan Academy repeatedly after evening pray .I think it is best site for math learners as it's views and subscriptions are more than millions.Khan academy was great help to my eldest son during his school studies and now my both younger sons also take help from this.I never imagined  i too will take advantage of this site someday. My hear feel gratefulness for having this opportunity in this part of age! 

I felt difficult understanding the technical terms and phrases while listening audio book Brain and Personality by William Hanna Thomson so i looked for site i can read it and thankfully i found it  here.I am really enjoying learning about how this little weird looking bundle controls all our physical functions. I was astonished by this fact that According to author scientists have found no difference between brain of  of other species and human.And it is only Grey matter" that separates human brain from other animals. "Grey matter is only source that transforms energy into thoughts.The more grey matter our brain produce the better we are able to think.How to increase grey matter in our brains ? I found answer of this question on Lab Talk

Enough my boring talk dear friends .Sharing some glimpse of my latest garden delights .Hope you will like them as well :)









 























Take Good Care and keep blooming like flowers which deliver pleasure to each eye embrace them and preserve in our heart like pleasant memories forever !

God Bless You All!

Guests ,Ac And Little Joys Added To Life

 It 's a windy day today .I can see my front yard through the window and it is getting dusty more with each gust of wind .I cleaned yard floor in the morning as usual but now i think i have to wait for after noon until wind disappears hopefully .

We  had invited newly married couple (hubby's nephew and his wife) on lunch so yesterday they visited us.My sister in law and two of her sister in laws were along .They informed us before thankfully so i prepared meals before their arrival .Therefore i got plenty of time to spend with them instead of kitchen. WE had pleasant time together.They left after dinner time around 10 :30 .

My eldest son moved into a new house that he rented week ago .He showed us during what'sup chat and we all just liked it so much.House is on higher floor and has road passing both sides.t has glasses all around instead of walls .To be honest i saw such house only in movies.I asked my son to send few images but he  is quite the perfectionist so said he will when house is arranged properly.Rent seems high (1000 euro) but still house justifies it somehow.i liked the kitchen most which has view like balcony .My son 's all friends visited him during Easter holidays .He talked for almost an hour with his father as i was busy in kitchen preparing food for expected guests .I could chat with him hardly for fifteen minutes .He said that he is expecting friends and they will make dishes together .He also told that he may not visit us for few more months as he has to sort out some issues first regarding his career .I felt sad inside but i did not express except he knows better what is best for him.My son told that he has ordered an conditioner for us that will arrive within two weeks.We though suffer during crucial temperatures in summers still not me nor hubby likes to sit in room with air conditioning system.My reason is that i feel sick if i have to sit i such cool place.I like coolness or winters but my body resist it i don't know why.I feel better if i am sweating and i can't help it.Hubby's reason for not wanting ac is that he thinks if i won't stay with them in cool room they will be uneasy .Kids say the same .But now ac is is coming eventually and let's see what happens .

I have brought little changes in my way to use my time.I have satrted to hear audio books and i am really happy i did this .I was angry with myself that why it took so long to me .I should have thought about it earlier .I finished listening The story O f Aristotle 'Philosophy in two days .It was written by Will Durant  .I so enjoyed learning about one of  the pioneer  philosopher and scientist.Now i am listening Brain And Personalty by William Hanna Thomson .I listen audio book while i am cooking in kitchen.Such a pleasure i found .

I have been really bad in my mathematics during my school days.In my matriculation exam i got 33 marks (passing marks) .If one was less i could have been fail.I feel embarrassed now that i disliked math specially hated algebra .I felt annoyed with Muhammad Ibe Musa who invented it what the hell he was thinking ,i thought.I can understand now that it was my weak brain probably who descended when i attempted to understand algebra .I would get migraine immediately .But now in my fifties i am attracted to this subject and reason you may find funny. Actually i find a vigorous desire within me  to understand how we humans can make our thought system better.I genuinely believe that we can train our brains to think better which is core thing to create healthy and successful life as super specie on earth . I think if we can learn how math is involved in our every day life .And we can think how to apply it more properly and effectively in our thinking .

So i have started to learn math .I satrted it from basics and i found it appealing.I repeat if i can't pick it correctly .This practice reminds me often one of our math teacher who would say that 

"don't long for right answer ,Stick with Right procedure ,you will get right answer eventually"

I think same formula applies on our life .If we stick to the Right procedure we find answer that is satisfying mostly.

I look at furniture and roof bricks and floor bricks ,pattern in everything .I find that if every single piece is made finely it is fitted into it's place with perfection .Just like diamond in the ring.Petals in the flowers and nodes in the music book .

Math is in everything to keep it working properly.It demands great thoughtfulness"care  and balance" in each step while solving sum of life.Non living things obey rules of math so they turn into beauty and harmony .But as humans we are mostly illusioned  with the freedom choice.We do experiment and become complex as simplicity seems boring to us. But the complexity created by this irresponsible behavior make us "misfit" in pattern of nature. I am afraid if answer is wrong while solving sum of life. 

thank you for bearing with me precious friends!

Thank you for always encouraging comments ,they make great deal to me!

In my thoughts and prayers all of you!

blessings to all of you!
