Zero Lift-Off Only The Beginning
September 3, 2021
Very nice idea Suma! Very interesting answers you provided and I must mention now what came out to me in this were these following words that you said!
“Live this short life with sweet smiles and happy laughs whenever is possible and spread the same to those who needed. Kindness costs ‘0’ currency as we all know this and nothing new I created.”
I want to veer from the prescribed format you present to first say these particular words speak volumes to me and are all truth. Our lives are very short and tough time seems to tick away slowly leaving us with the illusion of enough time to be relaxed and say no worries and maybe even chill or don’t worry about it and then go about squandering our precious time, yes very precious time here alive on earth to make many or maybe not many choices in our daily lives. The big question has to of course be; WHY are we born, and what control do we actually have over anything in this world let alone our lives!
We have limited control so think about it we can do like you say have those sweet smiles along with some happy laughs in order to spread good in the world. Kindness has zero cost in currency and the effort is simple enough so why don’t more people do this consistently while they can I ask myself, and I see that people are too busy with petty attitudes or selfish motivations my dear Suma is the best way I can see it, people are trying to survive yes but there are more Takers than Givers in this often times cruel world but perhaps this is a test to see if a person’s heart is more about giving something good back to God’s creation or just being a Taker which is so much easier than the ease of showing kindness to others! If it’s so easy to be kind we should think everyone would do it naturally like breathing. I woke up from a sound sleep and still the weather is like a monsoon which is good as I see it; the drink of water to all the living things is so beneficial as long as it doesn’t’ keep up and flood them or wash away. Which gives me more thought as to how can we wash away the sad, the pain, suffering and the hate coming at us in this conflicted world?
This brings me to how just yesterday I had a bad argument with a sister of mine and told her to stop being so frantic and this only caused her to become more determined to get her way or tell me how I talk over her, and then this argument ensued which made us both so upset and even angry! Then I finally said enough, I’m done with this foolishness and hung up the telephone. Later she is sending text and email messages I think in her words and way trying to apologize saying we can have a better sister and brother relationship if we have more what she stated, “Patience is a virtue,” which I know is helpful too, but, people can tend to put too much pressure on each other or even themselves with worry or trying to get their own point of view across; thus arguments ensue. I have to admit one thing that really annoys me is a frantic woman or man for that matter, anyone frantic or argumentative and not able to just calm down quickly and listen, say as in this instance to my laser sharp analytical perceptions of a given situation, just as being a problem solver which I’ve had to do in many work situations or even with people in general, but, cooperation isn’t always readily available and then the stress and arguing begin.
So here I am back to what I said about this conflicted world and is it easy to smile and be kind or generous when we look around and see so much taking? I will be candid and say I get fed up or tired of many people and have been stressed out way too much by many of them over the years; so that makes me very unhappy! It also makes me angry with myself for allowing that to happen. Life at times over the years has been a joy and I still find some of that dally but I also have to be admit there has been and is way too much inflicted misery or sadness. Then the monsoon happening reminds me how the world is crying all these tears and to what avail as the hate and misery continue! Then I say, I will never quit and must do all I can to improve until such time that God my beloved Jesus Christ helps me leave this all behind and find the Truth and True Happiness that only exists in Heaven.
Now I want to use the words of a brilliant mind who I love to ponder about as I know he was seeing deep into the awe and mystery of the mind and far beyond into the cosmic unknown origin of all this grandiose creation or in other words seeking to know God through His creation as best he could!
I want to leave something I find very insightful by a man we all know was a remarkably brilliant person who I think even though his head was immersed in the world of science and theories he had a keen insight into God’s presence and reality like few people can achieve with our limiting cognitive faculties.; and his respect and love of God was present and genuine; therefore we can say God will judge accordingly, I know for myself Einstein was a good and respectful soul in this world, so I do wish him well. What follows I was writing about back at this mentioned date.

Einstein on Self and the Mystical
“A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.”
-Albert Einstein, 1954
“The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms – this knowledge, this feeling is at the centre of true religiousness.”
-Albert Einstein – “The Merging of Spirit and Science”
This man the father of physics had said a few great one liners but two that stand out are these. He referred to God as the “Old One.” He speaking to other physicists was known to have said during a discussion about the Big Bang Theory in which one scientist said that with enough random events occurring in this pre-millisecond before it happened eureka the right combination occurred; Einstein just plainly said; “God doesn’t roll dice.”
Here is something I said the other day when I reblogged this title by another blogger “The World Will Drag You Down.”
Hello Brother! I have to say first of all it’s not anything I take lightly to see you appearing so disappointed. Life is a most precious gift and yet there is this harsh reality of the dichotomy of life’s endless battles even within our own bodies running smooth and then others times not so good while yet still for others not so good all of the time! It appears at times to be a losing proposition at best with highs and lows. Never quit is an adage my Dad taught me that is time tested and proven to be a better plan than I don’t care or what’s it matter maybe it’s better not to be born in the first place. Another acquaintance said that recently just as countless others have in this world.
I was talking and entertaining over the weekend with a sister of mine talking about great movies and stories with awesome sound tracks or musical scores and we both thought this old tune was so prophetic in that it was talking about the time it was written in but how it could also apply to now in basic terms of the subject matter of the song, of its ideas; conflicts between peoples across the globe. Listen to this and then read on please. I’ll tell you I watch and listen to this and I cry. This life and world does beat us up and gets all to the grave eventually, but it is all still totally worth it; because there is a purpose and plan. We’re in the quagmire or between that rock and a hard place but we must never quit.
Personally I look at a man like you from what I can ascertain from your genuine thoughts and feelings in your writing and say you have so much to try hanging in for; taking it like Saint Mother Teresa said, “One Day at a Time;” who saw so much destitution of the human condition in all ages of human beings suffering and struggling nonstop, even just to obtain the bare essentials and health if they were able to.
She once was talking to an outcast in Calcutta who was found in the street dying, even had leprosy and he asked her “why are you helping me I’m dying and just a rejected man with nobody!” Those are the basic words as I recall but she told him “you are a human being and child of God’s and if you are dying you still should die with dignity.” Man I tell you that woman was a Saint in spades; a true Angel of Mercy! You’re an intelligent man and I can see sensitive with a good heart so just think what Jesus sees in you! He knows us through and by our hearts and there will be no fooling Him by anyone.
The World Will Drag You Down
Then yesterday I wrote this reblog title. “Pope Francis Is Tearing the Catholic Church Apart,” contained in it many words that are driving toward the same conclusion.
This quotation spells it out clear as a bell to me!
“For the pope, its suppression is a religious priority. The ferocity of his campaign will push these young families and communities toward the radicalism I imbibed years ago in Poughkeepsie, before Benedict. It will push them toward the belief that the new Mass represents a new religion, one dedicated to the unity of man on earth rather than the love of Christ.” Catholicism Pure & Simple Posted on 13 August 2021 at Fr Z’s Blog: Yesterday Hell’s Bible(aka New York Times)
This is a call to serve the Ways of the World or man worshiping mankind itself and all the trappings of materialism along with earthly power and science which we can plainly see where that has led just over the last year and a half toward oppression and totalitarian control of humanity producing a Culture of Death with already millions of innocent people being crippled or killed with the fraud pandemic vaccine death jab! This radial call to worship materialism and earthly man-made power is a complete denial of Jesus Christ and will be the open door for Satan to step in with the Antichrist to rule and oppress humanity.
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [money, possessions, fame, status, or whatever is valued more than the Lord].” Mathew 6:24
“Pope Francis Is Tearing the Catholic Church Apart”
Now here I am Suma, with a volume of text to you after veering off away from the core intent of your blog posting, but, I believe it awoke a powerful message in me so I had to go with my inspiration and truly hope this will all add up to something good for you first of all and then perhaps someone out there needing to hear a bit of what I’m saying in all of this! I of course can’t leave all this thinking now to only saying a few words without reblogging the entire article/essay; which I have done, thanks to you!
Thank you for this opportunity and I appreciate it very much.
God bless you and yours.
Brother in Christ Jesus,

Q and A
Suma Reddy Blogs 2nd Sep 2021 3 Minutes
This is written in response to Raksha
Rules: You can skip any question but last one is a compulsion coz i wanna spread a bit happiness through you amazing bloggers. Mention me and this post in your answer. Just enjoy and take it as fun.
Here are some questions that I was asked and my answers:
1. What is the best blogging tip that you can give me?
After reading your recent works I am truly inspired, you are really doing great. I actually have no tips in mind right now and I am not an expert too dear one. Still I would suggest keep writing consistently whenever you get time and whatever your thoughts trigger to pendown.
2. The best life lesson that you have learnt?
How can I choose only one when there are many but the best one, every one takes the silence and decency for granted but that shouldn’t change our true self.
3. How many years back you wrote your first blog and how you find it now?
Almost an year back, I guess in September/October 2020. It’s entirely shift of unpredictable change. Loads of learnings with the knowledge of zero earnings, just for fun but the fact.
4. Are you a student or professional?
I was a student of course currently a working professional with 10 years of career in an organization which I am always proud to say many reasons to be associated with. Prior to that I worked as a teacher for 1 year in the same high school where I was a student. My immense pleasure to answer this question. Thank you much.
5. Can you share something hilarious?(Because I want to laugh with others)
Horrible experience of stucking in the lift and making fun of those hell moments on each one’s expressions once we are out safely. It happened 3 times with me ( visited the hell and was hard to bring the breath back). Really not a joke until we were out especially in Gvt departmental towers or buildings.
Recent incident of the same, we got stucked in a lift when we visted an SBI and we couldn’t show or screem that it has stopped because one old man was along with us in the lift so, thinking that he may get panic, we were just trying to ring the bell tried the ph but nothing worked. We started sweating and shivering and the old man was happy saying ” abi e lift uper jayegi na” (now this lift will go up right) we were laughing a lot once we were out of the lift safely, saying “lift nahi hum log Jaanewale the uper with free ticket” (not the lift, we were supposed to go up permanently).
After 10 min with no response from anyone we tried to pull it with fingers and you know what?? It got opened just like sensar so easily. Surprisingly a security was standing outside, when we asked him about, his response was his duty is only to look after an ATM and to check with bank security or manager upstairs. That’s where our lives are being in a society with no humanity, warranty or guaranty. Any time anything can happen. So let’s not feed our hearts with negativity or hate. Live this short life with sweet smiles and happy laughs whenever is possible and spread the same to those who needed. Kindness costs ‘0’ currency as we all know this and nothing new I created.
Here it ends. Thanks for asking such amazing questions Raksha it was fun answering them. Hope you like it.
MY QUESTIONS WOULD BE SAME AS I ANSWERED ABOVE IF ANYONE WANTED TO PARTICIPATE: Hope you enjoyed reading my answers. I know many of you don’t find it feasible to participate or accept these requests, hence I am not mentioning any names here but all of you can pick any of the questions and mention your answers in the comment section if you feel to but no compulsion. Thanks once again for reading
My Garden of thoughts and feelings sow a seed of good deed if you visit. Thank you. Suma
