Tueadays with Morrie

| | 12 comments
A stunning process of life. It's fascinating avenues, every impressive corner of it gives us more reason to crave more. Gives us more reason to stay positive- beyond the fact that we only live once. And once this life past- it'll never go back again. But some gossips we're hovering around this world of life.

It  is said that : After our death we will have another life which possibly different from what we have right now. It's either for example I am a human being today, if I will die then it's either I will become a frog, or can be a king or a prince on my next life. Well it's not bad to rely on this thing though. But we never know what's next after this. What we believed is just that we will die and faced God for the next life. I think it this way. Kids does.

I just wanna share this story of a young and old men. Their friendship. The bonding. The Love and their valuable lessons that we human being should learned from. It is written by Mitch Albom . At first I wasn't really interested on reading it- or so. But when i started to grapple it, everything turned into "a fascinating experience."  As for me " Mitch just blown me away, he gives me more reason to value life. His book is a treasure to be kept."
I stopped reading it at once just to grasp on words written by readers to expressed their truthfully engaging amazement to Mitch.



"A wonderful book, a story of the heart told by a writer with soul." - Los Angeles Times.

"An elegantly simple story about a writer getting a second chance to discover life through the death of a friend."-Tampa Tribune.

Those we're just some of millions of praises Mitch gained from writing this book. And truly- it is real. It is life.
So here is the sample of how fascinating the work of Mitch is :

It is my junior year 1978, when disco Rockey movies are cultural rage. We are in unusual sociology  class at Brandeis, something Morrie calls "Group Process". Each week we study the ways  in which the students in the group interact with one another,how they respond to anger,jealousy,attention. We are human lab rats. More often than not,someone ends up crying. I refer  to it as the "touchy feely" course. Morrie says I should be open minded.

On this day, Morrie says he has an exercise for us to try. We are to stand, facing away from our classmates,and fall backward, relying  on another student to catch us. Most of us are uncomfortable with this, and we cannot let go for  more than a few inches before stopping ourselves. We laugh in embarrassment.

Finally,one student, a thin, quiet,dark haired girl whom i noticed always wears bulky white fisherman sweaters.,crosses her arm over her chest closes her eyes, leans back, and does not flinch, like on of those Lipton tea commercials where the model splashes  into the pool.  For a moment, I am sure she is to thump on the floor. At the last instant, her assigned partner grabs her head and shoulders yanks her up harshly. "Whoa!" Several students yell.  Some clap.

Morrie finally smiles.

"You see," he says to the girl "you close your eyes. That was the difference. Sometimes you cannot believe what you see,you have to believe what you feel. And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them,too- even when you're in the dark. Even when you're falling. "


Thanks for the reading...
