Mangalore Cucumber Sambar/Bannada Sauthekayi Huli

Oh Mind, Relax please!!! Stop Setting Yourself On Fire..Put an end to all the waves which Rises in you and Stop Chasing the Aimless Thoughts which Wanders like a Dog around you..

Where does the stress come from? Does it come from our boss, kids, traffic jams, bad relationships? The answer is 'No'....It doesn't come from any of these, it comes only from our thoughts about these circumstances...We are what our Thoughts have made us, they can make us feel Pleased and Pained and can Create Hell and Heaven Inside Us....

What exactly these thoughts are? These are some thing which shapes us, which follows us like a shadow and some times even haunts us like a freaking ghost...Most of the time we try to identify our self with these flickering thoughts,We Erratically take actions based on our Herky-Jerky Thoughts

One realization  which startled me is that we are the creator of these thoughts...we have the remote to choose and play the good thoughts on our mind...Hence the happiness depends on the quality of our thoughts...so it is time to take care of what we think remember words are secondary,Thoughts Travel Far....Lets guard them, nourish them and  produce the most beautiful thoughts......

Keeping the train of good thoughts flowing Today I prepared  My Most Favorite Recipe..Mangalore Cucumber Sambar(Mangaluru sauthekayi huli)
