Re: Re: Re: Anib to GM

My brother-in-law has only now started to respond somewhat. There are three male nursing staff to attend him and with some physiotherapy exercises he shows bits of awareness which was not there earlier. But this is going to be a very slow progress. Only time can tell how much will be the recovery. Your brother has had a stroke but thank God there was no major damage. Pls tell him to take God care of himself, and I've included your mother in my daily prayers. Today is Mahalaya, the congregation of all gods on earth where goddess Durga, we Bengalis call Ma Durga, for the next nine days, will be at her parents' home, come from her in-laws' place. These nine days celebrations are held at nights outside of homes, there is the showering of her grace, the energy to be absorbed by hums beings. Science has corroborated that these days are those where life supporting energies are in abundance. May Ma Durga shower her blessings to your family, and to all and sundry.

Re: Re: Anib to GM

Thank you for your prayer.  I pray for your brother-in-law, who had the horrible stroke, after his mother died, who you were taking care of.  Has he recovered any at all?  My brother had a small stroke a week ago, but miraculously,  he has no lasting damage from it.  But he lost a lot of blood internally, and had to be in the hospital for a few days.

Re: Anib to GM

I am terribly sorry for all she has been going through.  I pray sincerely that she gets relief, and may God help her in the last leg of her life, in. whatever way He deems fit. That is my prayer.

Anib

This is a very good analysis of the mariner's preferring death to worldly life.  It is amazing that it comes at the same time that my 91-year old mother is preferring death to life.  She has been telling me this for the past 3 years,  and I have been trying to talk her out of it.  But even though we have provided everything she wants,  and now she has 24/7 house sitters at a cost of $600 per day,  she has so much pain and misery in her body,  that she simply wants to die. 

It is not quite the bland boring predictable landscape of the Mariners,  but if you add horrible pain to that,  the mariners would probably want to die even sooner.  That is where my mother is right now, with her pain.  She refuses to take prescription pain pills,  and the regular pain pills do not help her.  Only God can help her,  at this time.  Please pray for the relief of the pain, of her hands, wrists, arms, and shoulders.  Thank you

Aba Brother

My first thought here is of the counter-culture of the '60s! Some were as the lotos eaters, in many ways. But many changed their thinking. You, like Tennyson, have done a magnificent job of maintaining a detached personal opinion about this poem. We all toil, and this is a picture of the other side of the coin of life. Valid questions; each 'mariner' must find his own way on his journey, for ultimately, the journey ends for all. We are all mariners on a journey, we must decide its worth. Great post, and I thank you very much. Inspiring indeed. Well done, Aba! Kudos.
