"The English novelist J. B. Priestly, who is married torepparttar well-known archaeologist Jacquetta Hawkes, related this experience to Arthur Koestler in a letter dated February 7, 1972:

‘My wife bought three large lithographs by Graham Sutherland. When they arrived here from London she took them up to her bedroom, to hang them up inrepparttar 142240 morning. They were leaning against a chair andrepparttar 142241 one onrepparttar 142242 outside, facingrepparttar 142243 room, was a lithograph of a grasshopper. When Jacquetta got into bed that night, she felt some sort of twittering movement going on, so she got out and pulled backrepparttar 142244 clothes. There was a grasshopper inrepparttar 142245 bed. No grasshopper had been seen since. No grasshopper has been seen at any time in this house. ('Research in Parapsychology', W.G. Roll, R.L. Morris, and J. D. Morris, eds. p. 209)” (17)

The soul can teach a great deal but manipulation and denial stop the ability to question authority.

There is very little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative. The fact you see orrepparttar state you're in remainsrepparttar 142138 same - onlyrepparttar 142139 way you look at it changes. "Positive thinking" doesn't always getrepparttar 142140 job done but it changesrepparttar 142141 way you look atrepparttar 142142 things. Right now, just grasprepparttar 142143 idea that your attitude in any given situation is your choice, andrepparttar 142144 attitude you choose will determine your happiness and achievements in life. Let me illustrate this with a story I read about twenty years back. It is about a young bride fromrepparttar 142145 east whose husband was stationed inrepparttar 142146 desert during World War II. She decided to go with him even though she was told thatrepparttar 142147 living conditions were very bad and tough. She lived in a small hutment a village. Living conditions were really bad;repparttar 142148 place was full of sand and was infected with snakes everywhere. The wind constantly blew, and sand got into everything. The days were long and boring. The only people she saw wererepparttar 142149 tribal and they didn't speak her language. When her husband was ordered further intorepparttar 142150 desert on maneuvers, she decided she just couldn't take it anymore. She wrote to her mother that she was coming home. Her mother answered with just two lines, "Two men looked out from prison bars. One saw mud,repparttar 142151 other sawrepparttar 142152 stars.

“After readingrepparttar 142153 lines over and over, she began to feel ashamed of herself. She didn't really want to leave her husband. She made a choice to look forrepparttar 142154 stars. Overrepparttar 142155 next few weeks, she made friends withrepparttar 142156 tribal and started learning their language. They taught her weaving and pottery. She became fascinated with their culture, history - everything about them. She also began to studyrepparttar 142157 desert and found it to be fascinating - notrepparttar 142158 desolate place she had been seeing. She wrote to her mother and got her to send books aboutrepparttar 142159 desert. She studied allrepparttar 142160 different types of trees. She collected seashells that were left there millions of years ago whenrepparttar 142161 sand ofrepparttar 142162 desert was an ocean floor. She eventually became such an expert that she wrote a book about it. What had changed? Notrepparttar 142163 desert; notrepparttar 142164 s. By simply changing her own attitude, she had transformed a miserable experience into a highly rewarding one. That'srepparttar 142165 lesson we can learn. Your attitude is key to happiness in life, and you have complete control over it. Each of us shapes our own life, andrepparttar 142166 shape of it is determined byrepparttar 142167 attitude we hold most ofrepparttar 142168 time. Manage your Time Well I wish I had 48 hours a day! But god has given us only 24 hours. There is too much of job pressure on me! How do I do it! You can still do it by managing your available time well. Usually, there's not much you can do aboutrepparttar 142169 amount of work that needs to be done. But there's a way you can increaserepparttar 142170 effective time you have to do it. A recent time management study byrepparttar 142171 University of Leicester, in England, found that for every hour we spend working only 30 minutes are actually productive work. The rest ofrepparttar 142172 time, we waste on little or no value tasks. The study also found that most people worked in short bursts followed by periods of waiting, distraction or mini-breaks. Just think: If you could do an hour's worth of work every hour, you'd be able to pack 48 hours into each day! Contd..
