Building Bridges to more 'Women Centers'
and more 'good people'
Have you ever thought about the reason why the underworld is so well connected?
It is because they have a common agenda. Mostly Greed and Power.
The time has come to get good people together. I believe that one is a 'good person' if one makes
an effort to contribute to the welfare of the planet, for the joy of being of
service, and for no other motive.

Shamshah gave a talk on Mood swings at
the Times of India bldg on the 30th of Aug 2006. Some points (the way I
understood them): To distinguish what are normal and abnormal 'mood swings'...if
one has control over ones moods one is swinging more towards 'normal' Causes for
mood swings may be: genetic, temperament, stress, fatigue, hormones...depressive
disorders may be major or minor...all with bi-polar disorder do not do badly in
life...they can be productive...
