Why “Apple” Creates & “Straw-berry” captivates???
Yes, I mean the fruit in its natural avatar only!! Issac Newton was helped by apples to discover Law-of-Gravitation while I was helped by strawberries to ensure myself that Law-of-Attraction was for real. Before u start imagining the strawberries falling on my head in its juicy glory (like it falls on their face in the lakme face wash ad!!!lolz!)let me put your wild imaginations to rest!!!
Most of you would agree that S-T-R-A-W-B-E-R-R-Y is the most yummylicious thing on earth and I don’t mean its flavoured versions of ice-creams, cup-cakes, mousse and God knows what not!!! I am talking about the raw, original-organic
pinkish (I m a typical girl in love with her
pinks!!) reddish coloured fruit. I had been madly, desperately in an insane
kind-of-way wanting to have it. In an off-season, it was available only in
shops selling imported fruits tagged at exorbitant prices.
Not being the one to be defeated so easily, I decided to try attracting it with Law of Attraction (I had recently read the book “the Secret” by Rhonda Byrne and was hell-bent on trying it out). I tried it for 3 consecutive day and night by imagining that I am holding, licking, sucking and eating strawberries. I even went to the extent of peeling away the tiny green leaves on top and throwing it off. I was so engrossed in it that even when I used to be eating apples, I could almost feel it to be strawberries!
On the 4th day, the shrill Tring- Tring of the landline phone woke me up. My Mom answered the call and then informed me that it was my aunt. Her daughter’s house was in the same city and since she was in USA, she asked my mom to send a basket of imported fruits to her house (along with cake, flowers etc.) as it was her daughter’s birthday. I tagged along with her like an extra baggage to the imported fruit shop. There we got the fruits packed (You just have to tell your budget & they’ll put appropriate fruits in an attractive packaging). The fact that he did not add strawberries hit me like a bucket of cold water splashed on my face (Okay I’m exaggerating!! But only a teeny-weeny bit). It was too expensive and adding it would have reduced the size of the packed tray.
In a forlorn manner, I kept staring at the strawberries on the racks like a child prying for chocolates. My mom gave me a stern look which screamed do-not-embarrass-me. The Owner of the shop (a cranky old fellow) was giving us dubious stares. Just then like a fool I uttered “Oh! You keep strawberries also” (as if a fruit shop would keep ice-creams!!).The old fellow looked up at me incredulously and I managed to save face by murmuring “No..umm..I mean they look good.” And then Lo & behold, the magic struck-the fairy waved her wand as the words “Madam has come to OUR shop and you have not made her taste our specialties” drifted towards my ears. Uncle (no more a cranky old fellow for me!!!Wink) asked his staff to get a few pieces of strawberry and Australian grapes in a disposable tray for me to taste. Like a child who had been granted his wish of meeting mickey mouse (or is it shin-chan & doraemon now),I picked up the fruits.
Well this is my true personal life experience (back in mid-2009) when Strawberries helped me discover Law of Attraction. Since that time, whenever I feel low or want something from life, I remember this moment and it has a magical effect on me. Do you know what your Strawberry is???Go Grab it NOW!!!
