Beyond the Powers of Physical Water Vol.1, No. 11

0

Several disciplines have, more often than not, expressed their confidence in the powers of water. Philosophy, Science and even our religion speak volume to the powers of water. Water precedes, creates and even sustains existents. Remove water from the earth and everything comes to nothing.

The Offices of Christ is Ours (Vol.1, No.10)

1+

The place of illness at the early years of my life is still alive and kicking in my memory. Sickness seems to be a state of life that every child from a poor family background would unreasonably aspire. This unpredictable longing to become sick is hinged on the fact that any kind of edible which is not placed before a sick child is one which he or she has desired not, regardless of the family‚Äôs financial statue. Well, the crux of the matter in this reflection is very far from the above analogy but not contradictory. (more…)
