Distinguishes Clearly - One of the important function of Mind
What we see is not always what we get. There are certain things in this world in which their physical appearance is far different from their real attributes. Using only our 5 bodily senses, we may readily accept what we see, hear, smell, taste, and feel even if it refutes reality. But with the mind, it helps us distinguish clearly what the entity really is; thus, helping us too in making wise decisions.
Take for example this situation: you overheard a person say that it will rain this afternoon. Without thinking and analyzing the circumstances, you are going to believe it unhesitatingly. You may even cancel your plans in going out in order to avoid the hassle it will bring. In other words, without any basis other than some opinion of a person you don’t even know, you accept the idea as true. And so, you make adjustments.
Using the mind, we can always not believe what we sense. This is if, not only they contradict with the observations, analyses and evaluations we made with them, but also they disprove a general truth. In the situation above, the mind can intervene in several manners – observing if the clouds are darker than usual, checking the weather news in the TV or newspaper for possible pouring of rain, etc – so as not to immediately accept the idea that it is going to rain. For instance, having observed the outside climate, you found out that the sun is high and the clouds are clear. Or, having checked the weather news, you knew that there will be no rain during the day. Therefore, you may now conclude that it will not going to rain, and that you don’t have to cancel any plans you have.
Hence, what our five senses cannot perform well, the mind does!
This book not only enlighten us about what God really is but also enable us to have working practicle Friendship with God.
These lines from the wonderful book really touched me.
Just wanted to share the joy!
A time to be born and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to harvest that which has been planted;
A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to break down and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend and a time to sow;
A time to keep silence and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time for war, and a time for peace;
What is it time for now? That’s the question. What time do you choose for it to be now? You have had all of these times, and it is time for you to choose which time you wish to experience "this time"!
For all that has ever happened, is happening now, and ever will happen, is happening right now. This is the eternal moment, the time of your new deciding. The world awaits you, and your decision. It will put into place what you place into being. You will place into being what you are being.
This is how it works. This is how it is. And now is the time of your awakening to this truth. Go forth and spread this message to all the world. The time for your deliverance is at hand. For you have prayed to me," Deliver us from evil", and I am doing so again, with the message found here.
I am holding out to again, the hand of friendship.
A friendship with God.
I am here for you, Always.
Also these words were captured in lyrics by a lovely song.

என் எண்ணங்கள் எழுத்துக்களாய்:
On his blindness-உம் அதனால் தோன்றிய என் எண்ணங்களும்:
"Just because you cant do everything doesnt mean you dont have to do anything.Just do whatever little you can do.Every bit counts!"
I am an Infant
I have a great passion to learn, and failure is an incentive for me to try again. I make progress through enthusiastic trial and error. Learning to walk is an adventure. I often fall, but I get up and try again and eventually succeed. And once I have mastered walking , I want to run! I remain enthusiastic. I keep trying regardless of setbacks, not wanting to give up. I encourage myself:"Keep going. Never mind if you fall, get up and try again. You can do it. We all make mistakes. You're doing well." I am an infant!
