i Believe not!

Hmm,I realise I'm going through a demoralised patch of life. Feeling rather vaguely atheistic. I don't wanna! For one thing, I'm a staunch believer that God is, and is the One and Only God. For another, atheists don't have any holidays..except for Karl Marx's birthday,I think..[;)]
okeys,admitted that that quote is postively NOT mine. But mebbe I'm not feeling exactly atheist. I just don't know what the thing is.. Ah yes! Disillusioned perhaps!

But I never ever get that silly as to fall for superstitions. Nope. Raphael is a Ravenclaw,she has to live up to Raven standards.
For one thing, I'm the kind who_
*Purposefully lets a black cat walk past me. Once I did this, I had an exceptionally fun day, whereas my friends had an exceptionally bad day. Scolds and detentions from teachers..
*I deliberately turn back when its deemed unlucky.
*I don't believe that the first stranger I see in the morning can have any influence on how my day turns out. Only God decides.
*Stopped reading my zodiac predictions 2 years ago. Too bad I didn't do that earlier. I can't fathom how planets and stars that have NO connection with me can decide that I will have an encounter with good or bad stuff. How can some mysterious Trelawney plan out how my day will be? It's upto me and God!
*Obviously that means no tarot cards either.
*There are NO ghosts, ladies and gentlemen. Life on earth, then you die. YOU D.I.E. That's it. You don't linger back as spirits thirsty for vengeance. How come the Godhra victims don't come up for justice then? Or the 9/11? Or all the war victims in Iraq,Palestine and elsewhere? And after death,you are in your grave. ok,i believe in life after death. But NOT ghosts.
*I almost forgot to mention about palmistry. Well? I once did the mistake to have my palm read (that's the last time) by the palm reading expert at my college. She told me I would get married within 6 months. Though I scoffed I did get worried that this calamity might happen. Happy thing is this palm reading happened one and a half year ago. I'm thankfully still single! And she informed me that my haath ke lakeer told her (oh yeah?) that I have been through a catastrophe in my childhood. I know there hasn't been anything so catastrophic in my infancy except of my being born!
So silly! She told N that she has a short life line, but she gets married late in life! What the heck? I guess she will rise back from death to get married?! Ha! I hope she lives long and happy.
*Crystal balls? So filmy. What had a crystal ball tell me which God Himself has kept away from me?
*Omens- I told you earlier, I make sure black cats cross my path and the like.

The only time I get superstitious nowadays are during exams and competitions. But I'm getting past them. I'm using my God-given intellect to look beyond such beliefs.

Now for something very remote from superstions and the whole lot.
I've found out who J is! But maybe J prefers anonymity, so I will just play along!!

Cheers and love to y'all!

when i was born, my parents accepted me as vijay rathod. i had to spend hungry days and tired nights, plus i'd fail in my exams and my voice was like janice (from f.r.i.e.n.d.s)

after i changed my name to champak i've had fifty-nine job offers paying from twenty bucks to twenty-two hundred bucks per hour. i have feather-filled pillows. and my voice is such that i've successfully been through mel gibson's voice-recognition security system thrice.

beat that!

Raphael said...

can't beat that!
cos i havnt yet heard of a break-in at mel gibson's yet!
whats wrong with having a voice like janice?
and vijay rathore sounds 1000 times cooler than champak. i tell u.

well, I also always make it a point to be the first one to cross the road when a black cat...

The reason why even in this era, we continue to believe in these rather stupid ideas is fear. Just as u said, for example, exams. You know if a black cat crosses ur path on an exam day nd u screw up ur xam (u keep blogging all the tym...I worry wat u will do...lol), all the blame goes to the feline. And this kind of strengthens the belief in ur mind. And next tym, u won't be that eager to follow her. It is this fear which kind of keeps adding fuel to these mindless superstitions...But as they (mountain Dew) say " Darr ke aage jeet hai...."

As for cracking ma identity, congratulations....u have passed the frst challenge of "Meet an asshole" contest...
It's just that grls (nd fr that matter boys) who get to know me, invariably fall in luv wid me....so I avoid revealing ma identity....lolzzzzzz
