I came across this book after watching TED talk by the author about the link to menopause and the brain. It was an eye opener for many burning questions that I had and happy to have found a book that explains the interesting details. The starting talks about the importance of hormones followed by the repercussions of taking the antidepressants, cough medications and hormonal supplements which alters the brain chemistry in the long run thus paving for welcoming Alzheimer’s disease. Whenever menopausal women discuss their hot flashes as main issues never imagined to be a problem originating from the brain since the phenomenon is termed as vasomotor for a reason. In all this, points towards the tasks and activities one may need to slow down the onset of Alzheimer’s is worth the read and the recipes at the end of the book gives us the completeness one wish for.

Every morning in Frankfurt, Germany, you might catch a glimpse of Jenny, a horse who goes on a long walk every morning, all by herself. She has been taking the same route every morning for 14 years, ever since her owner, now 79 years old, became unable to ride. She enjoys greeting all of the familiar faces along the way, and she stops and gets treats and pettings from some of her favorite humans. The locals treat her like a celebrity and happily clean up after her. A piece of paper is attached to her halter that reads, “My name is Jenny. I didn’t run away, I’m just walking. Thank you.” But the police get calls frequently from people who don’t know about the arrangement. They are very familiar with the horse and the owner, and there have been no incidents in 14 years. A local veterinarian gives her routine checkups and continues to find her to be healthy and showing no anxiety about her unique lifestyle.

Miracles are created!

I want to share two old stories with you, and see how you would choose in these situations.

“Story One”

A certain company had a tradition of holding a party and a lottery every Christmas Eve.

The rules of the lottery draw were as follows: each employee pays ten dollars as a fund. There were three hundred people in the company. In other words, a total of three thousand dollars can be raised. The winner takes all the money home.

On the day of the lottery draw, the office was filled with a lively atmosphere. Everyone wrote their names on the slips of paper and put them in the lottery box.

However, a young man hesitated when he wrote. Because he thought that the company’s Cleaning lady’s frail and sickly son was going to have an operation soon after the dawn of New Year but she did not have the required money to pay for the operation, which made her quite troubled.

So, even though he knew that the chance of winning was slim, with only a 0.33 percent chance, the man wrote the name of the Cleaner lady on the note.

The tense moment came. The boss doubled in the lottery box, and finally drew out a note. The man also kept praying in his heart: hoping against hope that the Cleaning lady can win the prize…Then the boss carefully announced the winner’s Name, a miracle happened!

The winner turned out to be the Cleaning lady. Cheers broke out in the office, and the Cleaning lady hurriedly rushed to the stage to accept the award. She almost burst into tears and said, ” I am so fortunate and blessed! With this money, my son now has hope!”

At the beginning of the party, while thinking about this “Christmas miracle”, the man paced to the lottery box.
He took out a piece of paper and opened it casually.
The name on it was also the name of the Cleaning lady!
The man was very surprised.
He took out several pieces of paper one after another.
Although the handwriting on them was different, the names were all the same, all of them were the names of the Cleaning lady The man’s eyes were filled with tears and he clearly understood that there was a Christmas miracle in the world, but the miracle will not fall from the sky, the people were required to create it by themselves!

“Story Two”

One afternoon, I went for a walk with a friend in the suburbs. Suddenly, an old man in tattered clothes approached us with a bag of green vegetables in his hand.
The sales of those vegetables on that day were very poor, the leaves seemed dehydrated and yellowish and there were holes in them as if bitten by insects.
But my friend bought three bags without saying a word.
The old man also embarrassedly explained: “I grew these vegetables myself. It rained a while ago, and the vegetables were soaked. They look ugly. I’m sorry.”

After the old man left, I asked my friend: “Will you really cook these when you go home?”

He didn’t want to say No to me. ” These vegetables can no longer be eaten.”

“Then why did you take the trouble of buying them?” I asked.

He replied, “Because it is impossible for anyone to buy those vegetables.
If I don’t buy it, the old man will probably have no income for today.”

I admired my friend’s thoughtfulness and concern, so I caught up with the old man and bought some vegetables from him.
The old man said very happily, “I tried to sell them the whole day , but no one was ready to buy them.
I am so happy that you both were willing to buy from me… Thank you so much.”

Several handfuls of green vegetables that I can’t eat at all taught me a valuable lesson.

Moral intake

When we are in a low ebb, we all hope that miracles will happen to us; but when we are capable, are we willing to be the one who creates miracles?!!!

You become transformed when you are willing to learn to be compassionate to others…
