Nominated for “The Bloggers Recognition Award”


 

 

Thank you:

I was nominated by Alicia for which I am very thankful and honoured.
Thanks, dear Alicia πŸ™‚

 

Recommodation:

What mostly interests me in her blog is the vegetarian kitchen and besides soups, salats, there are many delicious vegetarian dishes with photos that lets your mouth fill with water and your eyes eat beforehand. Please, dear bloggers, check out Alicia’s blog and enjoy the variety of dishes she offers in this connection.

 

The Rules:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
2. Write a post to show your award.
3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
5. Select 15 other bloggers for this award.
6. Comment on each blog to let them know you’ve nominated them and a link to the post you created.

 

A brief story of how my blog started (3):

I started about 6-7 years ago but did not pay attention so much and left it rather aside for many years, just to place there a few poems of mine. At that time I did not know that blogging could have a positive impact on me – So in fact last year, beginning of last year, I have really started to be a blogger and found it useful to exchange thoughts and words with other people and share own thoughts and also the teaching of my Master Sant Kirpal Singh Ji which is a universal teaching of all competent Masters, with spirituality (Man know thyself) as it centre point.

I have always liked to write poems, aphorism and quotes and gave them a β€œframe” with my digitial art that I also like very much as it may express sometimes things you would not be able to express them with words. Every now and then I pack my ideas and art into a video.
So wordpress allows me to share this kind of art in an easy way.

 

My Advice to Beginners (4):

1.) Write comments and write always in friendly positive words –
so that people feel comfortable with what you have to say, even when you disagree with them.
Because friendly words are free…

2.) Be yourself, honest and unique and express it in your own words (unless you use quotes).

    • Thanks, dear Carly πŸ™‚
      Yes soon I am going to continue the video serie about the mind. This is not so easy as it always requires many hours of work. Anyway, I like it to produce new photos, poems, aphorism and videos – it is a wonderful hobby and gives inner peace too.
      Thanks, my friend
      All the best

  3. Hi, I am a neophyte at doing blogs, but I subscribe to yours and love it best, and my next favorite was #2 because of its positive thought and beauty in the site. Others I really liked were number 2, #5, #7, and #14. I liked the ones I did because of the positive content, the beauty of the sites, and the overall excellent and interesting designs. These are the things I look for in a site, and anything pertaining to art, spirituality, plants and/or gardening, and just plain interesting and positive captures my attention. I hope all the ones I listed get an award. I would definitely give all of them something because I know how difficult it is to make something worth reading, make it look really good and keep it vibrant day after day. All these folks deserve your award in my mind. Oh, I wanted to say that I look for color on blogs because I am an artist and so I want to see more than black and white. I also don’t care for something that remains static. I didn’t like my own site because even though I had color on it, I could not easily change my layout or change my header visually daily or weekly, and that was important to me. Also, I am an advocate/mentor/activist for physically challenges artists, and I had a lot of issues to write about for these good folks, but after awhile, I realized that they all had negative connotations. They are all true, but it is not where I want to go with my writing or art. My blog is http://www.artfulalchemy.blogspot.com and I used to love blogspot, but now it is difficult to use, and I would not use it again. I don’t quite know how to get rid of it now except to try to take everything off of it. Again, thank you for this great challenge and education. Your site is gorgeous.

      • Thank you Didi. My site name came from a book that my Paraplegic friend of many years, Barbara Williamson and I worked on together.

        I guess that during the Vietnam War, I was not very in touch with everything that was happening except for some of the big headlines, but when my little brother came home from Vietnam 100% physically challenged with a TBI, spinal injury, and permanent PTSD, it hit home, and changed me forever. I have had a heart to work with physically/developmentally/emotionally challenged children and adults ever since and have worked in the school districts with the children, served as a tutor for adults and children, and I am now working as a volunteer for an organization called CASA.org. They are in every state just about. It means Court Appointed Special Advocate and we serve foster children but we are not social workers. We just fill in the gaps so to speak. And my friend Barbara and I ran a very small nonprofit for some 10+ years to help physically challenged fiber artists get exposure for their work and to teach them professional development. Most folks don’t realize how difficult it is for people with challenges to get out in the public, know which shows to enter and which ones to avoid (not that the shows are bad, but expensive to enter a juried show and if you don’t get in, not something most of them can afford). So we have had a blast with all these women for all these years, and we found ways to do things to help them and it made us feel good to do something positive where there was a true need.

        I am 76 now, and in May 2016, had cancer surgery, and graduated in October 2016 with my second degree, this one in Criminal Justice. I wanted to be a mentor/advocate for juvenile delinquents, but I think it is because of my age that I am doing the volunteer work instead of a job. It is ok though. Life keeps moving on, and I just hope to keep trucking in doing all the things I have in mind. Thank you kindly again. You are very appreciated.

          Thank you very much for your lines and personal words about yourself. Indeed the world needs much help from all sides: As you, I am also a voluntary helper of Unity of Man. Once a year I travel to India. There is a brilliant project that was brought into life by my Master Sant Kirpal Singh Ji who commissioned Dr. Harbhajan Singh and his wife Biji Surinder Kaur to build up Kirpal Sagar. It is a place open for the whole mankind and where all religions are peacefully under one roof and respected as well. There not only social activities and support for the needy and poor people are practised (there is a hospital where poor people can get free medical treament and operations as well, there is a school with over 600 students, then there is an Old Father’s home providing space for about 1000 old people who are poor and maybe also left alone from children and relatives. Kirpal Sagar takes care of them and they are not put aside as often it is done by the society, but they can bring in their experience and help with advice where needed.

          Here you can learn more about it:
          http://www.sant-kirpal-singh.org/en/further/kirpal-sagar.html

          It is also a place of man-making: means we really can learn something about ourselves in the way of: “Man know thyself” The problem we see in the world cannot be solved politically as the politicean have neglected to first of all to have a deep look into themselves with honesty and with the same passion as often other people are blamed. Means: If we would treat us in the same way as we treat others – we would learn a lot about ourselves. Then we stop finding mistakes in others but see that we can weed out our own mistakes. This process develops also humbleness which is necessary not to compare us anymore, if someone is better or worse – we should understand that we all sit in the same boat: no higher, no lower…

          All good wishes to you, dear Anne
          Didi

    • Wouldn’t this be a wonderful world if people in every nation would do this not just for the aged, but for the orphans, abused children and adults, the disabled, mentally ill, the animals who have been abused, etc.? I dream that someday people will care more about other people than whether they have a fashion bag or clothes, a new car or other fancy things. This world needs all the help it can get and we need to stop thinking only of our own selves, but what we can do to help.

          Yes, as Anne has put it: We need really to help each other, people who are in need, suffer from disability, sickness, are poor and have not the same chances to build up their lives – they all need our help – if this help is already in our hearts we have to put it into practice…

          Thanks, my friend and thank you one more time, dear Anne πŸ™‚
          All the best

      • Indeed, dear Anne – when we develop a compassionate heart to help the poor and needy people and give even a helping hand to the rich ones (that they learn to detach themselves from the attachment of holding their money tight – as Friedrich Nietzsche has put it: They are possessed by their possession…) – and when we learn to share and give and do and live for others (not for their personal wishes) but for their well being that they have enough food, that they are integrated in the society and not left alone – when all this selfless service is done without wanting anything in return (no expectation, not even to expect a thank) then we really become true human beings (helping each other and live with higher values of life: love, respect, humanity, kindness, sharing, giving, oneness)

        Thanks, my dear friend
        All the best
        Didi
