Spiritual Dustbins

Anu’s chatter....

what does not work for me with people even if they are close to me-----
A bickering attitude--- always saying 'how difficult life was for them .How they really really hate it!'The worst is after a while , they focus their attention on-- 'how lucky someone else was in a similar situation or how lucky the person in front of them was for having all the good things of life?' I try and avoid people who get into these ---’God I am so Unhappy chatter mode’ for the most part! 5 minutes with them and you want to run in a different  direction! But I had no answer to why I was doing so?
 On the other hand I know a couple of people who make me feel good after talking to them.Even though the talk can veer sometimes from general to  gossip! ( I love ‘good gossiping’ . I am sure everybody does!)I always get a lot of answers to nagging day to day questions after talking to these women , because of which they are much sought after,when I am struggling to get  answers to questions I cannot answer! 

The other day I called one friend out of those ‘two’ who happened to be my all time calming agent.  
We spoke for a while about life, families, problems with kids, parents  and lastly friends. I leant a new term called -Spiritual dustbins..
According to her there are some people who use others as dustbins. 
That was interesting to me....I wanted to know how that was possible? 
“When you converse with someone for a while you should end up feeling good but you may not.”
“ Yes ,yes but why?” I asked . 
“Because they may use you to unburden their negative emotions .Their talks are full of how bad their life is. Worst they are full of resentment .  I call them spiritual garbages and make you into a dustbin to pour out their negativities to feel good themselves. In the end you feel depleted.”
I agreed with her and got the answer to my that days tingling question about--

Rejection a part of life...

Anu's Chatter...

I was surfing the net and came across this site that has this following news...please check this out...
Best-Sellers Initially Rejected

Rejection is an imperative test of one’s character

Some writers continually submit the same manuscript until it is accepted. Others chose to do a more polished draft before sending it out again. A select few learn from the lessons of submissions, to write a completely new book.What they all have in common is a persistence to never give up on their dream; a dream that has elevated them from writer, to best-selling author.

They have written some of the most critically praised and commercially successful books of all time. In some cases their enormous sales were so consistent that they even kept their publishers afloat.
Yet in spite of this phenomenal success, every single one of these best-selling authors was initially rejected. Literary agents and publishers informed them in an endless stream of rejection letters that nobody would be interested in reading their book.
Here is an extensive collection of the some of the biggest errors of judgement in publishing history.

So when I read this I really, really felt that everybody has a chance..once Ameesh Tripathy had remarked 
“ If I can write anyone can write.” So guys I really feel one should dream and dreams do come true!

Perfect Imperfections---

Anu’s chatter......

Sometimes mistakes make my writing good...while writing sometimes I let them be......small i for capital I or an extra word here or there..or just some colloquial words or language that makes it all very beautiful..the thought behind it is allowing the flow to remain as it is.... can make the sentenses  near perfect.. I do not edit them --Like just check this paragraph that went into  very little knife .

Do you want to be rich? Then visualise all the wealth in the world!.!.!. visualise everything that money can buy!.!.!. a private plane, yacht, 100 homes!.!.!. billions of dollars— anything and everything. Accounts running in crores in a Swiss bank. If you cannot, then visualise a Aladdin’s cave!.!.!. with all the wealth in it, and add more to it on your own,” Urvashi joked.
‘Is joking allowed during NLP?’ Ananya thought.
“Do you want the best body? Healthy body? Go all for it. See yourself having a smoky sexy body! The best figure in the world. You want success? Do you want name and fame? Visualise it because it shall be yours.”
Ananya was really feeling funny at this point! She had some doubt ‘How was it pos!.!.!.!?’
“Do not doubt anything,” Urvashi said, and Ananya jumped out of her doubtful thoughts.
“Visualise people asking for your autographs. Pining for you, loving you more than anything in the world!.!.!. Believe that it is all yours!.!.!. that shall happen.”
Funny!.!.!. In the trance, Ananya did not feel any different. She just felt as if she was lying down and listening to someone. She could hear all the instructions clearly. She went about visualising a happy family. In the happy family Alia was there, Marriamma was there, her mom was there, and she herself was there. She played with the baby, enjoyed a warm family time in a cosy home. She saw herself as a great mom.
“Go all about it! Visualise.”
