Easy Conversations

My apartment building has four elevators. We normally meet new people and say, “Good morning,” or “Have a good day.” Today, only two of the elevators were working. All the strangers started talking to each other, complaining about the building, the maintenance, etc. If someone asks you about your health and you say it is…

Negotiating with God

People negotiate with God. Children, too, negotiate with their parents. When I was young, I used to negotiate a lot with God. When my mother had to go for a surgery, my prayers were, “God if You do this, I will do that.” During my examinations, I would make similar deals. I used to also…

Perfect World
