Choices in life – Totally Useless, yet, still we make them…

Monday, January 29th, 2007

For a long time now I am subscribed to receive daily
a note from TheOnlyOption.net. And for about 99 % of
the time I enjoy these very much. Very wise thoughts
are shared, and one such note I’d like to share with
you today. Please, share the above URL with people
who might benefit from such wise & uplifting notes,
thoughts and lessons.

A group of alumni, each highly established in their
careers, got together to visit their old university
professor. Conversation soon turned into more and
more complaints about stress in work and life.
Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to
the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee
and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic,
glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive,
some exquisite – telling them to help themselves
to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand,
the professor said: “If you noticed, all the very nice

looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving
behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal
for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is
the source of your problems and stress. Be assured
that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In
most cases it is just more expensive and in some
cases even hides what we drink.

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the
cup, but you consciously went for the best cups…
And then you began eyeing each other’s cups. Now
consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money
and position in society are the cups. They are just
tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup
we have does not define, nor change the quality of
Life we live. Sometimes, by concentrating only on
the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee Gad has
provided us.”

God brews the coffee, not the cups……….

Enjoy your coffee!

“The happiest people rarely have the best of
everything. They just make the best of everything
they have.” Live simply. Love generously. Care
deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

What were your first thoughts after reading the above?

The truth is so simple, but still most of us continue the
struggle and the stress to attain more of this, and more
of that, while trying to do better than our parents did,
or our neighbors do.

Isn’t it absolutely and totally useless? And why do we
believe still these things and possessions will make us
happier? Can’t we see that the waste of our lifetime is
enormous and cannot be brought back when we will
finally have all the physical things that we desire?

If you choose to look at it the way described in the
note above, than maybe some of us will start looking
at things and choices a bit differently? I know that I
am looking much differently at things right now. And
I have made a new choice. To reduce the stress and
to cut off the struggle that fills my days, while working,
and working and running after money and things.

Will this great choice last? Will I become more relaxed
and will I take more time to enjoy life? And will it be
easy to make the switch in consciousness, after all the
years of living life like we were brought up to believe is
the correct one? The one that would make us happy
and fulfilled?

Who knows. It is definitely worth to try it out, and
escape the useless way of living like I do right now.
And sincerely hope you will try it out for yourself too.

Is Simpathy Totally Useless?

Saturday, January 27th, 2007

Today I read an article that left me with lots of questions
that I can’t answer that easily myself. Read about the
Sympathy against Empathy here and do share your vision
in regards if you so wish.

If you need motivation you could find many Useful
articles here.
I am using some myself and do know
when I need some motivation in confidence, and also
when I need sympathy and empathy… 🙂

Wishing all of the readers a nice and sweet weekend
and talk to you soon.

“Totally Useless” here and there in the news

Friday, January 19th, 2007

Quoting from an article of the NZHerald.co.nz:

The Italian industry had fiercely resisted efforts to impose an outright ban on models with a BMI under 18, like that imposed in Madrid last September, and persuaded the Government that self-regulation would do the trick. But Mario Gori, the boss of the Glamour modelling agency, has dismissed the agreement as “totally useless”.

I do agree somewhat that it is totally useless to impose
an outright ban on models with a BMI under the 18.
Fashion is not really responsible for the anorexia among
young girls. But than, what is?

Have a great day!

Useful web sites?

Monday, January 8th, 2007

This is the next rant while starting the new week in a new year.

Have you ever asked yourself which web sites are useless, and
which are not? Take as example the web sites of news papers.
These are absolutelt useful for most people that love to read the
daily news. Because of it – I thought to make a site like the once
dedscribed above: readthe.info

But somehow it didn’t get the attention of anyone until now, and
there are no readers of the news at all. Totally useless site thus.

There are other such projects of mine that didn’t work at all.
Popularweb.info is such one.
If any of you is interested to get these two – contact me for details.

Wishing you a very useful and nice week ahead, and talk to you soon 🙂


Is there any Use for Second Life – the game?

Saturday, January 6th, 2007

This is an other useful for some and useless for others rant.
It’s for a few weeks now that I am following the news about
the Second Life game. Online but also on tv. No one could
predict how successful for some this venture will become,
but in Germany, a lady has become a Millionaire by selling
cyber land, houses and what not that is used in there.

“How fascinating”, I thought, and went to take a look there
myself. It is even better than places like MySpace, although
the movements that are made by the participants there are
less “real looking” than I was thinking before getting in it.
The “flying around” is cool, but it cannot make you feel like
you are a bird of some kind…

I am not against the game, and do not see it as the “danger”
described by many. It could be a danger only for people that
are mentaly unstable, and for maybe younger teens also.

And maybe if I had more free time than I would have taken part in
this Second Life game. This is not the case however, and I am
with very little free time, plus, for me it’s totally useless to spend
my hard earned cash for a game, instead of making the real life
that I am living better.

Wishing you all a very useful and nice weekend 🙂

Have you found out how totally useless info searches are?

Friday, January 5th, 2007

Here you can read an article that I stumbled on Yahoo!News.
The article started the thought about how easily the search
for news online becomes useless when you click on a link
and when you get to the site – there is nothing to be found.

Either the site has been created for the search engines only,
and not for the people looking for news, or totally unrelated
but very well paid key words has been used by the creator.

The people that are not a web-master themselves do not even
know how much disdain such sites produce on forums visited
and used by web-masters, like the Digital Point forum.

Such sites, made especially to earn money from Google’s
Adsense program, are called MFA sites. Personally I do not
approve or disapprove with the above mentioned sites, the
fact is though that when in search of info and finishing on
such an useless site without getting the info needed, but
having clicked on an ad and finished on yet an other such
site, believe me, you get frustrated and not happier from
an other lost 30 minutes or an hour and more.

Time is not only money. Time is the only asset we posses
that is always getting less instead of more, the longer our
life becomes. So, we should try to make it as useful as
possible, and not waste it in totally useless activities, such
as the searches for info, that are spead around or not even
where we think they’ll be.

Be blessed with a very relaxing and useful weekend 🙂
