All my Friends are Superheroes.

I have just heard (not read it) about the book by Andrew Kaufman about a normal person in a world full of superheroes.

In the book all the characters have some super power which they never used and didn't know that they posses any super power.

On one level....I think...“All My Friends Are Superheroes” is a charming love story. Where a person who does not posses any special ability surrounded by superheroes who love him and care about him.

But on the other hand it’s really funny where a world full of people with dubious super powers rather than saving the world with evil-doers....these plain clothed superheroes often have regular jobs and can find no real use for their special abilities.

And when they visited by a normal person who not only acknowledge their super powers but also describe them how they can use it to protect and to serve their country and got them thinking.

And thus this got me thinking too...hmm....

And I thought...I am that normal person who does not posses any special power or have no special ability...hmm...yet I am surrounded with friends...all of them containing some special power in them...

And if I am to acknowledge what would be the superpower of my friends?

Just suppose for a while that all of you…my friends…comrades…have some special abilities which you have not yet discovered and if I ask you to simply stop for a while and think about yourself…

I leave this to you of course although I am tempted to suggest your super power myself…but this is not how the story goes…so you have to find it out yourself…hmmm

Also…do let me know what you find out by commenting me or emailing me...whatever is convenient..hmm....

But there is a rule too…once you find out your super ability you have to use it frequently and freely for the betterment of world and survival of humanity.

Thanks for reading.

Perhaps…this will be my last blog posting this year...so...have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

hmm....

  6. I pray that angels surround accidents - the people hurt - the drivers - medical folk - families...

    When I hear ambulances I pray...

    Easier in a small town...

    When in NYC someone sais there that you'd be praying ALL the time...

    Once I was in an accident...before my daughter knew it was me SHE was praying the way I taught here to do all here life - for angels to surround the accident upon hearing the siren.

    Soon she saw it was me...I wasn't hurt at all...I wonder if my daughter's prayer made the difference?

  15. Well, I may see what you mean...a little...yet the story sounds like each person is NOT able to know their Super Power until someone else points out...no?

    I only have one little thought...that like world peacemaker Bishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa and his Elders for peace we do this...

    Write a letter to self as 16 yearold... and maybe some Super Pattern will emerge going back to that time for us each?

  16. Thinking,

    Read 2 posts now. Hope someone benefits from your Home Spell. You wisely cautioned to use one fruit only, what if more are used then there will be a battle galore. Each of us has some quality which is unique to the person. It may be good or bad even. It is for us to use good ones but try to overcome bad ones. And you have set me thinking what is mine. My heart skipped beat on reading "Perhaps…this will be my last blog posting " but thank God you clarified next moment.

    Take care
