Bending spoons - May the force be with I

The power that I have felt within the three days of not complaining is tremendous. It is something that I haven't felt since a long time.

These are my feelings:

  • No one can solve my issues.
  • I have the the power to solve my issues and create opportunities.
  • If and when I do not complain, my mind is compelled to come up with a novel way, a solution around the problem.
  • If complaining, in some way, takes our energy out of us and disperses it in the wide, open, black space - then being thankful and quiet starts reigning the energy back in.
  • There is nothing to complain against or even to have praise for . It is only my state of mind.

Something from The Matrix fits in beautifully:

Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Spoon boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
Spoon boy: Then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.



  1. Prophetess: it must have taken a really good amoutn of self control to stop yourself from ocmplaining. I think I'll go on this fast too (from tomorrow, I have a departmental heads meeting today so have to complain). Good insights too!

  2. Check, I finally found your blog yesterday, btw!

    Try this, three days, and let me know too how did it go.

    Remember if you complain, you can "undo" it by thanking the Lord ten times. As I mentioned, I read the durood shareef 10X and ended it up with Alhamdolillah 10X. While doing this, a consideration of alternatives to the situation may be considered.

    Good luck!
