Shift in perception from looking good and being GOOD
Did I pick the right person ? This questioninverts the starting and ending points.We do not pick our perfect match because we ourselves are not perfect. The universe hands us a flawless diamond - in the rough. Only if we are willing to polish off every part of ourselves that cannot join do we end up with a soul mate.....The usual means of selecting one's mate is no less dominated by appearances. Those seen as ordinary are not considered in first go. Period.But if the calves are a centimeter wider, if the eyes are centimeter wider..... if the career gives the right impression..if the ageis less..and hair are longer......etc etc..the individual is attractive and desirable and worthy.No one is would be so dumb as to pick a friend because he or she has good legs, and yet considerations such as that influence the choice of one's life partner. What comfort is a complexion or hour glass figure, when you must come home all tired exhausted....to share professional tensions in the evning ? What tenderness and fun can the right height give to a new born child ? And in illness what compassion can come from net worth of a man ? Looks good or is GOOD ( person): that is the needed SHIFT in perception.....- excerpts from Notes to Each Other

My Space.............a catharsis for my thoughts, repulsions, excitement, ......... churning of experiences day in and day out ....... what all life brings to me....... elements which provoke me.....sometimes silently and at times vociferously,creating an enigmatic aura around me. This is a canvas of my brushes with a pallette called LIFE.
- Name: Reetika
- Location: New Delhi, Delhi, India
Outgoing, candid, fun loving free spirit, strong-willed, and independent- minded individual.
Although a sensitive person, I often let my head rule rather than my heart;biggest flaw in me is that I trust people easily ....'m bit obtuse and stubborn.
The urge to learn and to communicate is essential to me , and I generally express myself very well through writing. Spontaneous, restless, impulsive and inquisitive, enjoy being mobile and exploring untouched places; live passionately and intensely and not averse to challenge. I donn live life superficially n blessed with strong immediate gut reactions which often prove to be correct.
Psychoanalysis, investigating my dreams, and other methods of uncovering secrets interest me. More compassionate than passionate, Commitment doesnt comes easy to me but when it comes....its for life long .
I appreciate individualistic people with candor, a mind blowing sense of humour, crystal clear heart and over n above no nonsense atitude.
