Cup Vs Coffee

I got this nice story from one of my email group, thought it is worth to post and to read, check it out.

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

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the lecturer said "If you noticed, all the nice-looking, expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones.

"While it is but normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress".

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the better cups and are eyeing each other's cups. "Now, if Life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the quality of Life doesnt change."

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it."

So dont let the cups drive you. enjoy the coffee instead.

Do you Believe in ghosts ?

I got this interesting image from one of my friend in the jayathilaka hall. According to his confirmation, the location is Yala National Park, and people who are there in the background, as my friend said one of his seniors from the faculty.
Check out the bottom image, can you spot something creepy at the top right hand corner of the image. Now go to the top image. You can see the zoomed ghostly depiction at the top image. Guess what is it.

Do I believe ghost? thats what came to my mind soon after I spot on this. What about you ppl? Do you believe ghosts or spirits or whatever spine chilling? Honestly, I believe the supernaturalism; I believe there is something paranormal to our 3-D world. Something, which will go beyond the dimensions that we know.
Ghosts and Spirits are perhaps one of the most common of all unexplained phenomena, second only to sightings of UFO's. The concept of the dead rising from their graves to haunt the living world has lived on in folklore and tales for generations, and it seems now only too obvious that such stories are in no way false.
So, the topic is very interesting I guess, I checked the web to find out something about the phenomena behind on this. Check this out.

Paranormal Phenomena
In some cases a ghost will not appear visibly, but will instead engage in activities such as manipulating objects and throwing things around - books off shelves etc. This type of ghost is known as a poltergeist. In some more drastic cases, a ghost will take possession of a human being and speak through the person's body, although this is highly rare.
Ghost related phenomena can occur anywhere, and in many different forms. A ghost "sighting" usually involves an Apparition of some kind, whereas in other cases a ghost is suspected because of a feeling of dread in a building or location, cold spots, strange marks and noises occuring and so on.
To date, spirits and ghosts have remained one of the most chilling aspects of the unexplained.

Ahh, Interesting isnt it, so be careful, ghosts are all around you guys, think twice before doing things.
