What do I want?

Off late I have been dabbling into Buddhist chanting, it is known to be soothing and has healing powers. After attending a few sessions, I was told to jot down a list of things I desire and keep it in front while chanting. While people usually want power, money or fame or any of its synonyms; I listed down the following three

Good international assignment – the only panacea for all the ills gripping my life for the moment seems that I fly abroad, this benefits me professionally as well as personally. On work front it is never bad to rake in the moolah, while personally it is better to be away if there is no cordiality in relations. I have actually been craving for this and want a good stint abroad badly, but thanks to current global economy it now looks like a far fetched dream. Only time this year I got an international option was during restructuring, when my firm had offered me a position in African jungles in Angola of all the places!

Better relationships – think I am not alone in wanting this; relationships would indeed be the bane of many in the blogosphere. Let it be the office peon or Barack Obama, we all want healthier relationships with those who matter in life, moreso if they happen to be your family. And scoring badly here can actually make it a lot tougher, ask me

No diseases – I slept with a whore recently and though I did take all precautions (and also did not discharge anywhere inside) at times I feel edgy and pray I did not get anything dangerous. On her part the chick was also very cautious and did make me wash under the tap, in the middle of exercise, when the latex got wet.

Perhaps could have added few other things to the above, but let greed take the back seat for now and atleast these three be granted and granted soon

  11. I agree we always want more from life, but that's good. we push ourselves to the limits. We run after our dreams. We work to get what we long for. I thing it's amazing and I hope you will get everything what you want.
