Time Is Another Name Of Love

Love is about memories and rememberence. Love is also about knowing Saba - the 'suchness of things'. Time is the medium where Saba is recorded. Yet, at the same time, Saba is the 'imprint of time' on things and beings. When one truly gets over the fear of time, then he/she can say that "I am in Love" or "I am alive". Love is the true unconditional existence.

The Eye

What a marvellous sense ability which we have, called the 'vision' or 'sight'. That is the ability to see the world around us. And the eye makes it all possible. Eye is sometimes described as the outwardly visible part of our brain. Each waking second the eye send some one billion pieces of fresh information to the brain. The human eye can sense some ten million gradations of light and seven million different shdes of colour. Eyes are responsible for about 75% of all that we perceive. Few creatures could boast of eyesight as power full as man's. An Astronaut orbiting the earth could spot the Pyramids of Egypt.

And today I have learned that there is a part of human body which receives most of the oxygen directly from atmosphere rather than from blood!! What a wonder!! The 'cornea' in the eye receives most of its oxygen directly from atmosphere through tears! If it was to be from blood that would diminish the transparency of the cornea....

In 1957, intrigued by the dual purpose of tears [irritant tears and emotional tears], chemist Robert Brunish analyzed the ingredients of irritant and emotional tears.. Tears induced by onion fumes and strong wind, he discovered, contained a lower concentration of the protein albumin. In the 1970s the biochemist William Frey began investigating whether this protein was related to the chemical changes in our blood stream caused by stress. Tears might well play role in filtering out the body's stressful chemicals. The machismo ethic of suppressing tears, Frey thinks, might induce peptic ulcers and other stress related diseases. By not allowing himself to weep, the strong, silent male might not take advantage of natural relief. Guys, dont hold back your tears... let it flow naturally.
