The Mystic of Twin-Flame Relationship- Book Review

​Title: The Mystic of Twin-Flame Relationship

Author: Manjit Sargam Chawla

Publisher: Educreation Publishing

The book solely talks about the concept of soul mates and twin flames and the ways of their recognition. Author has related the journey of self discovery and love through search of one’s soul mate and twin flame. And narrated the difference between the both terms. The best thing about the book being, it doesn’t follow any particular religion but depends on spirituality and divinity. I love the way author has quoted the quotes from different authors according to the context.

According to the book, twin flames are the mirror souls and refection to other related soul. It has referred there maybe different soul mates of one person and twin flames and soul mates are different things. It gives a deep insight of synchronicity, different frequency  vibrations that helps us in recognizing things, and The explanations are beautiful though except at some topics, I felt some contexts baseless and long descriptions.

The writing style is simple and understandable that makes the book relatable. Emphasizing on the importance of unconditional love, the book helps in being a good human and promotes humanity and trusting almighty, it supports being an active part of this universe through loving and caring. It’s a short read with deep insights.

Nothing Lasts Forever by Sidney Sheldon- Book Review

Hello everyone!

So here I am back with a book review that I read about a week ago but I haven’t been able to review it due to my current depressing state. But I would like to thank all who appeared with such generous and helpful comments on my last post and showed faith in me, ensured me, I’d be fine. And today, I finally wrote the review. Thank you so much everyone. It means a lot to me. I didn’t know I have so many caring people on my WordPress family. Lots of love to all of you.

Title: Nothing Lasts Forever

Author: Sidney Sheldon

Genre: Crime Medical Thriller

Publisher: William Morrow and Company

Publication Date: 1994

Nothing Lasts Forever is an American based crime medical novel that revolves around the life of three young women doctors, Paige Taylor, Kat Hunter, and Honey Taft, in Embarcadero Hospital in San Francisco. The book acquaints readers with the dominance of male doctors over women doctors in 20th century era. Besides that, it is a wondrous melange showcasing surgical operations, love affairs, murder trials and mysteries.

Sheldon has also highlighted the much debatable topic  of “Euthanasia” which is the practice of killing or permitting the death of hopeless patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease or in an irreversible coma. Dr. Paige comes into account with treatment of such patient who demands her to kill him due to his incurable suffering because of which she falls into a situation of Murder trial and been seen as a criminal.

Meanwhile, Dr. Kat, who has vowed to never see a Man due to her horrible memories of past sexual  exploitation falls in love with a treacherous male doctor who murders her eventually. Dr. Hunter who is not so good in medical studies has to search and learn other ways to charm people and survive in Hospital.

As a quote of the book says,

“You know, it’s not fair. Women are judged inferior until we prove ourselves, and men are judged superior until they prove what assholes they are”.

 

Sheldon has described how female doctors are seen as filth and only as sex objects despite being doctors.

From the starting to end, the book moves with an interesting pace, how Dr. Paige and Dr. Hunter solves the mystery of finding Kat’s murderer, the investigations and all are described in a manner that deeply involve the readers. And the murder trial of Paige, I say, seemed to be the most interesting part of the book.

It’s a great read with a beautiful writing style and well defined plots. Since it’s a medical thriller and has a hospital background, it is engrossed with the minute details of diseases, operations and treatments. It made me know, how hard and risky doctors’ lives are. While reading the book, I regretted to never have been read Sheldon’s works before. Surely, I am going to read his other works. Among all, I was more inclined with the Dr. Paige Taylor. Though I loved Kat too, I didn’t like her being dead at the end though it was part of the story line, I expected the end to be a bit better. Other than that, book follows the title, “Nothing Lasts Forever” that touched my heart and made me shed few tears. Because at last, things, relationships, joys and sorrows, people and life, Nothing lasts forever.

I’d love to share a beautiful quote from the book,

“You have two choices. You can keep running and hiding and blaming the world for your problems, or you can stand up for yourself and decide to be somebody important” 

My ratings: 4.5/5

Melancholy (Fiction) 

​She kept sobbing, shivering, whimpering hard that night. The night, emotions and her life brought her such melancholy that she couldn’t cease herself shedding those piquant tears filled with ineffable dolor and wretchedness. The darkness witnessed her barefaced pain, the quiet walls of room observed her numb state and the fan hung on ceiling examined silently her helplessness. Tears and blatant tears! A sudden memory struck her, how the person who gifted her those tears shamelessly used to hate her grieving at a time. How a single drop of her tears could pierce his heart as a serrated blade of knife does, leaving him shattered. And then reminiscing this, she wiped all of them in a stroke, swallowed the misery and slept.

I’ll move on

It’s a tough phase and I know I’ll move on. 

Sometimes, life presents you such situation it becomes difficult to tackle. Nowadays, I am in such phase. I am broken. I’m hurt. I can’t smile on days. I can’t sleep in nights. I can’t narrate my emotions to someone and thus, writing is the only nepenthe. I sit in my room pondering things and circumstances. And I know, time heals almost everything. These days, I am annoyed by little of the little things, either it be anything. I don’t feel good talking to anyone. Maybe that’s why I suffered panic attack a day ago. I have also taken a break from all social medias, Facebook, instagram and whatsapp, I just can’t tolerate all of this. And it’s really a relief, this hiatus. Since this blog means a lot to me, it is kind of a healer where I can express almost any kind of thing, so I am just writing here to vent it out. Writing keeps me alive, no doubt. I hope you guys don’t mind reading it. I needed it. Sorry to bother you guys.

Love you all.

Have you ever got Panic Attack?

Hello people!

How are you? Hope you all are doing well.

Well, my title must have acquainted you with my post something related to Panic attacks! Weird? No?

Well, I also wrote about nightmares once, in case you haven’t read, following is the link.

Why do Nightmares Annoy Me?

God knows, why do these things stick around me so much.

Okay, returning to the point, without wasting time, let me start.

This doesn’t happen with me usually, Panic attacks! I’m used to get nightmares since my childhood and even if I get good or bad dreams regularly, that’s nothing new for me. And I’m never afraid of them.

So this happened yesterday noon while I was reading the book I was engrossed in, I decided to take a nap. I had almost slept and been oblivious of the world, but then this happened, I was very abruptly forced to open my eyes and I was bewildered for a second. It was an extreme level of sudden anxiety or fear, I had experienced. And I was so so feared by it, I can’t explain in words. Even I did not understand the happening myself, because I had never experienced this sort of thing in my life. I was very anxious without any reason. The fact that there was nothing to worry or to be afraid perplexed me too, but still my heart was racing fast. Heartbeats palpitating, and I shrunk within myself. It felt as if my heart has been caged and it became hard to breath and my hands were trembling. And I was so glued to my pillow to escape; escape from something that didn’t actually exist. I hope I don’t sound dramatic, but unfortunately that’s how I felt.

I actually googled about the thing and the symptoms were similar that I found,

A panic attack is a sudden surge of overwhelming anxiety and fear. Your heart pounds and you can’t breathe. You may even feel like you’re dying or going crazy. Left untreated, panic attacks can lead to panic disorder and other problems. They may even cause you to withdraw from normal activities. But panic attacks can be cured and the sooner you seek help, the better.

The moments were undeniably helpless. I decided to call one of my closest friends to ease myself. But I stopped, thinking this would be fine and it’s just a panic attack. I struggled around twenty minutes to get out of fear, but I was so afraid of nothing. To be honest, it came to such extent, I shed tears too. And then after going through hundreds and thousands questions, I dialed my friend’s contact no. And talked to him. I was so restless on the call too. Very expected, he asked me for the reason behind it, but as there was none, and I perfectly remembered I haven’t seen the nightmare too. Also the book I was reading was Romance genre that had to do  nothing with the dread or horror. But anyhow, I got a bit fine. As friends are almost cure to every problem, the sunshine in days and moonlight in darks.

I did not have any personal intention to share it publicly but I felt to know about the things and notion behind it. Since I got it for the first time, it seemed very unusual to me.

At times, your own fear becomes the danger. 

Thanks for reading! Feel free to share your views. 🙂

Night

Dwelling in the dead silence of night, my mind hovered to the endless vastness of sky; calm and still. Stars- white and milky bright, twinkling with the ardor seem to be whispering secrets with each other. Right above there, I see a coruscant galaxy forming different shapes, conical and elliptical. Fragile petals, flowers blossoming all day flaunting their pulchritude, now sleeping tired at the end of the day, as if moon sang them a sweet lullaby. And the moonlight kissing the fronds, small and lively. Slow and steady quirks made by sharp and mucky creatures, voiced in ears. Their conversations are audible yet unsettled. Good and bad memories, winning success and hurtful failures, love and life, occurring holus-bolus in the waves of mind; how complicated. Yet how serene the night is. Despite its inertness, I admire its liveliness.

The Relationship Between A Writer And A Reader

Imaginations brought into paper

Thoughts woven into words

Ink turned into life

A writer’s story.

What does a writer need more than a pen and a paper and deep feelings to pour in? Moreover, his high level of observation of the things happening around him and in his life, create all the stories he write. Ain’t it? 

 

 

 

 

 

I wonder, how beautifully the imaginations are fancied in mind and heart, and brought in paper, how perfectly the thoughts are transformed into words. Consequently, the entire story is expressed in few words to the readers. And how great it is when whole world resonates with the writer and his words. The world responds to the story as if it has lived the story. The bibliophiles relates to the story as such the they dwelled in between the lines. And we tend to live the protagonist lives. Sometimes, after reading a great book, I see myself living in the same circumstances. And I do dream about it too. I find myself so immersed in books. Writers have such heart in writing that they pull us in their awe. It gets unputdownable and mesmerising.

 

I came across a quote which I found so authentic in terms of any writer’s life and for a literature lover,

“The purpose of literature is to turn blood into ink.”
-T.S. Eliot

The ink turns into a life. A livable life. How true and beautiful.

The fact that has been impressing me the most since years is the versatility. Writers write so well, that we lose ourselves in each and any kind kind of genre. When I read the book, “Chasing Red” by an author, Isobelle Ronnin, I found myself captivated by the hero of the novel, Celeb Lockhart. It has been time I have read that book, but it feels I’m still ensorcelled by his magical charm. The science fiction “The Time Machine” by H.G. Wells took me to varying worlds of past, present and future. In fact, I dreamt a lot about it.
And my current read, “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë has taken me in its gloomy state. It is teaching me a lot about life reality and experiences. How doleful it can be for someone without his family and acquaintaces, how world treats you in the same condition. So it goes like that. Nothing can be a great benefactor like a good book from an influential author.
