Feeling Sleepy?

By Aruna / April 30, 2018 / 1 Comment

Once awake, we need to stay awake.  Being awake means to be happy, joyful, excited and enthused about life.  If you remember the story of Samson and Delilah, it was when Delilah lured the mighty Samson into a slumber that she was able to ‘cut’ away all his powers!  Thus, we need to stay attentive and alert at all times.
