Flashing back to positive past events in quiet meditation... a potent medicine

A flash back to some positive episodic moments in ones life could rebuild one's degenerating aging cells and bring a high blood pressure to norm.

 As simple and pseudo-scientific this may sound, it does to the body what anti-aging drugs can not do.
Many neglect the powers of quiet meditation. When coupled with bringing back good memories, it yields results immeasurable.
Yoga helps reduce stress etc, the above does that and much more.

Try this little one: Do you know "Okoso" Pictured below?
Remember what its made of? As a growing child, I guess you created one for yourself.
Made from battery tops and bic cap, the duo forms "Okoso".
Remember how it dances on sand, in the palm, on hard surface and so on?

Now don't say this is not worth it... If it does nothing positive to your mood, see a psychologist.

Health issues: Outbreak of a virus causing diarrea

This January, there is an outbreak of  gastroenteritis or RotaVirus, a disease that affects the alimentary canal.
It is common with ages 0 to 5, but could affect adults too.
It is accompanied by diarrhea - constant watery stooling and vomiting; and it also induces little fever.Now, don't panic if it gets into your family. Administer electrolyte- salt and sugar mixed in a clean water as much as you can.
Again, do not try stopping the diarrea swiftly. Do not try self medication, see a doctor and follow instructions.
It is not a deadly ailment except when dehydration is allowed.

Is this a sign from the gods?

2015, Feb.14th Prayer... spare few seconds, Pray thus:

2015 Valentine's day prayers. Oh God of Creation, the God of Love, grace and mercy. Look with pity on this country called Nigeria. Its citizens are more confused than ever- based on the presidential elections that comes up on the 14th of February. Baba God, firstly they changed it to Febuhari, then again they call it GEJantine's day! Amongst these two men, most Nigerians are confused because they are like two proverbial machetes found in a poor man's yard- the one with a handle is blunt, the sharp one got no handle.
Oh! God, I know You are thinking what I am thinking... but if You are not, then I am relieved. I always gulp balls of air down my throat like tom & jerry whenever I remember 2015 Val's day.  These men are desperate, they are heartless, they are humanoids. They fight tooth, nail and weapon to ensure they sit on that seat of power where they pilot the affairs of this Nation. They have been there, they had the ship-Nigeria- navigated to the rock instead o…

Buhari did not collapse in Calabar APC rally.

There is a blatant lie against Buhari. These lies are carried by incompetent bloggers and rumour mongers.
Muhammadu Buhari DID NOT COLLAPSE in an APC Presidential rally held in Calabar on the 7th of January, 2015.
He wore an Ibibio regalia which covered his feet. As he was stepping up the podium, he stepped on his clothes and tripped. People can stumble, trip and fall. Even a vigorous youth can trip on clothing and grace the floor with a mighty thud.
Stop this rumours and lies.
Long live Nigeria.

See? Its not only in Nigeria... "Criminal/ Cultural Universality"

A man in Illinois, was shocked to discover that his bike was stolen from a police station while he was filing a police report about his stolen iPhone.

The incident unfolded on Friday night around 9:00 p.m., while 31-year-old Adam Wisneski of Chicago, was at the police station to report that his iPhone was stolen. Wisneski said that he was riding on a train last month, when he realized that his iPhone was gone. Recently however, he was contacted by a person who said that he purchased the phone and demanded the access code.

Wisneski rode to the nearest police station on his bike to file a police report about the phone. After about 30 minutes, Wisneski went outside to get his bike and was shocked to discover that it had been stolen. Wisneski immediately went back into the police station to file a police report about his stolen bike. 
This is so funny and pityful.

New year resolutions... odds of "It" & its misconceptions.

Every 1st of January, in almost every heart, there is always this urgency to turn a new leaf, or do things differently.

Why must we wait for January to be resolute? Here is my ideology:
Calendars, dates, events and holidays are man made; and because of the inclination of the so called resolutions towards God (mainly), most religious folks tend to do this with the notion that God begins the year like man. People even believe that if the world is gonna end, it is going to be January 1st. Lol!
