One, None and Two

"One is none. Two is one."

Above is the much-repeated quote of elite Navy SEALs commandos.

Always have a back-up.

Nature gave all important things in pairs. Just so that there is at least one if the other one fails.

This quote appeared in the book "Warrior Soul: The Memoir of a Navy Seal" by Chuck Pfarrer. Very interesting book by former SEAL commando.

Promised land - from Moses to FDR to Kennedy

Moses - "Pick up your shovels. Mount on your asses and camels. I will lead you to the promised land."

FDR - "Lay down your shovels. Sit on your ass. Light up a camel. This is the promised land."

Kennedy  - "will take away your shovels, kick your ass, raise the price of camels and take over your promised land."


From Chuck Helppie's historical novel based on Kennedy assassination - "Kennedy must be killed."

Fantastic book a great read. Distills tonnes of information around Kennedy assassination and conspiracy and weaves into a nice novel.

Reflect the goodness

Moon does not have it's own light. Moon reflects the light of  sun. Stars have their own light. What do you see on a new-moon day? Is it darker or brighter without moon?  It's darker. Right?

Moon does not have its own light. Merely reflecting sun's light, moon keeps the night that much brighter. Stars have their own light but still on a new-moon night, all stars together do not match up to moon's light.

So, what to learn? Reflect the goodness. Original goodness in us is amplified by many  times, when we first start reflecting the goodness. If you do not know what to do, just do the same things the other people do that made you happy. If somebody was good to you, be good to others. If somebody was patient with you, develop more patience. If someone gave a lot of their time to help you, give more of your time to help somebody else too.

Just by starting to reflect goodness in ourselves, we start to get more and more better ideas to become a better human being. To start off, just reflecting is good.

What's very important to reflect? The surface should be clean. A dusty mirror does not reflect as well as a shiny clean one. Clean up your mind and soul. Then start reflecting the original goodness.

Cheers to reflecting the original goodness!
