My Australian Shepherd Trixie walked up to me with a feather in her mouth and made eye contact with me like she wanted me to have it. She gave me no trouble taking it from her. Is this just a gift from my dog or a sigh from the heavens? #gift #feather #dog #doggy #canine #animal #BabyAnimal #pup #pet #puppy #green #outside #mothernature #nature
That’s the way of living nowadays. We are so caught up in our work and responsibilities, that we have no time to enjoy the beauty of nature;
The twinkle of stars on the night sky,
The glimmer of the moon that lights up the night,
The little dance the trees do when the wind blows.
Take a time off, and observe the nature.
The nature is a gift from God, appreciate it.
nature || my unspoken diary #26
part 1 of ’ 21st century’ series
If you are a nice person - if virtue comes easily to you - beware! Much is expected from those to whom much is given. If you mistake for your own merits what are really God’s gifts to you through nature, and if you are contented with simply being nice, you are still a rebel: and all those gifts will only make your fall more terrible, your corruption more complicated, your bad example more disastrous. The Devil was an archangel once; his natural gifts were as far above yours as yours are above those of a chimpanzee.
But if you are a poor creature - poisoned by a wretched upbringing in some house full of vulgar jealousies and senseless quarrels - saddled, by no choice of your own, with some loathsome sexual perversion - nagged day in and day out by an inferiority complex that makes you snap at your best friends - do not despair. He knows all about it. You are one of the poor whom He blessed. He knows what a wretched machine you are trying to drive. Keep on. Do what you can. One day (perhaps in another world, but perhaps far sooner than that) He will fling it on the scrap-heap and give you a new one.

I held the door for a sweet black man at my school who was pushing/pulling a dolly with boxes stacked up all the way to the top.
“Much obliged, little one! You have a nice day.”
I replied with “Thank you, you too!” and went on my way with a smile across my face. I feel special. I do not feel special because a man gave me attention (especially an old man. Ew, no, he spoke to me like a “little one.”), but because I was blessed with an interaction between myself and one of God’s rare people whose tongues had been blessed with natural eloquence of speech.
Potamides are a class of Naiads, the fresh water they domain are rivers and streams only, you will often find them bathing in their waters in only their flesh giggling and splashing about sometimes with another naiad, a water creature, or any man or deity they enrapture.
Potamides can live for thousands of years but appear to be young, nubile, and beautiful girls, when bathing in their waters they remove those who have freckles, although they love to flirt and play with men like any nymph their natural behavior makes them weary of them and they typically become aggressive toward men who near their watery territory or drag them down into their abode.

Now, certificate of honour for parents with one or two daughters
It is an effort to acknowledge those parents who have two daughters and have decided not to go for third child in a bid to have a son.
The district administration of Mansa under the Centre’s flagship programme ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’, is presenting certificate of honour — 'samman patras’ — along with a box of laddoos to such parents. The samman patra, signed by deputy commissioner and written in Punjabi, urges these parents to take pride in their daughters.
It reads: “Daughters are our pride. We are extremely happy to know that birth of a daughter has taken place in your family . Daughters are nature’s best gift. They are God’s promise to take humanity forward and thus they will take legacy of your family forward too. The government promises to take care of health, education and safety of your daughter. We wish the best for her healthy life. Sons may take parents to heaven but daughters bring heaven to home.”
In the first phase, a total of 20 villages with critically low sex ratio (300-600) were identified where 223 families, including those who did not go for third child after having one or two daughters in the past five years, were shortlisted and given the samman patras beginning last November.
The administration has, however, kept those families who have a son or three daughters out of list.
Speaking to The Indian Express, Isha Kalia, additional deputy commissioner (general), said, “The aim is to not let such families feel left out as is the norm in villages if you do not have a son. We have given certificate of honour to parents who had daughters in past one year and then to those who did not go for second or third child after having daughters. But those with three daughters or one son have not been included. It is clear that they went for a third child as they wanted a son. It is a gesture to show that it is not mandatory to have a son to complete the family. Daughters too take family’s legacy forward.”
The administration has also opened bank accounts of girls born in the past five years in these 20 villages under Sukanya Samriddhi Yojna and deposited Rs 1,000 in each account.
Avtar Singh, sarpanch of Gamiwala village, said, “The families not having any son are considered unlucky and avoided by those who have sons in rural areas. These samman patras will now make parents proud of having daughters and they will think twice before going for third child after two daughters.”

Margaret Cavendish : Observations upon Experimental Philosophy: An Argumental Discourse
First of all, shoutout to Margaret Cavendish for being a female philosopher and scientist in a society that thinks it’s unacceptable for women to wear pants – second of all, this quote reflects directly on the subject matter we saw in class on Monday the 25th; that these women and men of science do not adhere to this modernist notion of ‘Science as killing God’, they adhere to the belief that science is a means of comprehend the beauty that God has set before them (as a fellow classmate remarked in class on that day) There is no division between theology and biology, or theology and the rest of science, because the purpose of science is in someway, to dissect the natural aspects of theology; to analyze this God given gift that is nature, that is the human body and the earth, and everything produced by the two.
God creates, there for we as human beings have a duty to appreciate, through study and analysis. The text itself of course deviates away from this subject matter, touching upon the animate and inanimate, the sensitive and the rational, but this particular segment at the beginning caught my eye, mainly because it reflects Thomas Sprat’s opinion regarding the discoveries and pursuits of science.
Also, please note that I’m a god damn literature student and this science crap is not my forte okay i went into literature for a reason i am not a smart person this is above my mental capacities, plus i mean, i understood virtually nothing that Cavendish was saying past the first few paragraphs (except for maybe the dude on the horse thing with it’s dual motion hypothesis thingy), which sucks because she sounds so fancy and well educated, and i can’t understand a gosh darned thing she’s talking about. Like, you go Margaret Cavendish, you show those men how smart you are, get yours girl, but at the same time like what are you talking about ?

Your feelings are not valid. “How dare you invalidate my feelings!” Your feelings are not invalid, either. “I thought we are supposed to validate each other’s feelings.” Your feelings cannot be validated nor invalidated because feelings are by their nature not facts that can be determined to be true or false. The existence of your feelings can be recognized and accepted, but your feelings themselves are just emotions. You feel how you feel. Emotions are a free gift from God and a natural component of your humanity. To our relief, our feelings don’t have to be right or wrong, and they can’t be. You have a right to your feelings or non-feelings on any matter. If your mind is working as designed, your emotions are responders to thoughts. Thoughts can be validated. You think that this ball is round. You thought I was being generous. These thoughts can be checked for alignment against some framework of reality. Feelings are experiential responders which may or may not be responding to truth.
Sometimes we don’t know the thought that is the source of our feelings. Perhaps we are very intuitive. Our subconscious is forming an opinion (a thought) to which feelings are responding. We are experiencing a feeling before fully expressing the thought behind it. We might use that feeling as an indicator in making a decision. Fine. Hopefully we will later identify the thought behind the feeling in order to improve our decision-making process. Be careful, though, to not create a thought based on a feeling. Then you are turning your feelings into thought-generators. At best, your feelings are indicators. Anyway, your feelings are meant to be physically and psychically experienced as responses to your thoughts about what is happening. Negative emotions such as jealousy are based on bad thoughts. Some emotions are unpleasant but not necessarily negative, such as sorrow—not to be avoided at all costs.
We sometimes abuse ourselves and others with our feelings by demanding that they be validated and by making them the cause of our thoughts. Sometimes we generate and express an emotion in order to manipulate the actions of others. We abuse emotion as a problem-solving device. We can become emotion bullies and emotion addicts. We protect our emotion addiction, this intangible substance addiction that allows us to deny the reality too painful for us to think about. We adopt an emotional mode of operation. Our emotion becomes an excuse to disconnect from others who want to share thoughts. If we begin to adopt a worldview that is contrary to the perceivable reality, emotion will substitute for thoughts in forming judgments and in defending our view.
