Progress Update: The In-Between

Right now, many Superstition Review interns are waiting for their workloads to either drastically taper off or greatly increase as we approach the transition from receiving and choosing work to publishing it. Spring break next week just about marks this transition, and it can’t come soon enough.

Our Section Editors are currently anxiously awaiting replies to their solicitations, while still doing all they can to keep up with reading open submissions. (But by all means, send them more to read! You’ve got till March 31st to submit your work.) Our Submissions Coordinator has been a rock keeping hundreds of open submissions organized behind the scenes. Interviews are well underway, now that the Section Editors have finished working with our Interview Coordinator to compose their interview questions. Our Photoshopper and Advertising Coordinator have been collaborating on, surprise, photoshopping and advertising. In Development, one Coordinator actually finished her work on formatting previous issues of Superstition Review for Kindle, and the other just completed a list of grants for which SR may be eligible. However, we are now encountering some hurdles for both grants and Kindle that may be difficult to overcome. Our Reading Series Coordinator has redirected her focus toward preparing for our reading with Franz Wright and researching potential readers for our next issue.

After spring break, you’ll be hearing a lot less about our Section Editors’ heavy workloads, and a lot more about the preparation of Superstition Review‘s website. Our Content Coordinator and Web Designers are ready to buckle down.

For at least one SR intern, the work remains steady. I’m here on the blog, as usual, introducing you to our staff and keeping you up to date on Superstition Review news and progress.

    NATURE IS GOD

    I strongly feel nothing but the nature is controlling all the events around us. It gives clues to us, which we can only understand or sometimes others by

    deep pshychic abilities. It is important to look into nature and the event at that particular moment to understand its cause and effect. This has been

    realized by many in past and they gave it a name superstition because they were not able to find a link between the objects and the cause but can see only

    the effects.

    Example: If a person think that wearing blue t-shirt will help to win competition then it is the natures way of telling him and giving him clue of upcoming

    event and once he has control to understand it then his confidence will rise and he will definitely win. Nature gives clues to us according to our

    subconscious mind understanding..for example 13 is considered unlucky by few and not by others..so nature signals 13 as bad only to those, who believes at

    their subconscious level it as bad.

    superstitions is the way nature reads your subconscious mind and gives you signals to perform a certain act which may be illogical for others but it only

    makes sense to you. This shows a person’s more control over understanding his talks at conscious and subconscious levels with nature.

    This cannot be measured that in what kind of people superstitions are foud more but it comes true more to the people, whom nature wants to protect and save

    more from a hazardous event. So as i saide nature is GOD, it will try to protect you in some way and it will interact with your subconscious level and gives

    you signals which you and you may only understand and are illogical for others.

    A person is always very confident when he doesn’t understand the nature’s role in his life and more in unawareness form but as he started realizing nature’s

    role and impact on him, his confidence gets converted into a faith on some supernatiral powers and that’ why we see more wiser people in chirches, temples

    and mosques than immature people. A person become superstitions by more awareness of self and nature.

    Again a person’s thinking of lucky and unlucky is made by nature as i said nature supports few to reach their goals and not all. It doesnot mean that nature

    descriminates but it means that it supports the event and not the person but we take as that person is lucky and others are unlcucky but the truth is, it is

    the event which important and lucky or unlucky and not the person. For example, if a person wins a race and other person loses it that means that, at the

    particular event that is the only thing which is beneficial from all aspects of natures calculation.

    You have a pupose for yourself and nature has a purpose for you, when both the purpose matches we call ourselves lucky and if not unlucky but the truth is we

    are lucky all the times because natures peupose is more important and for more benefits and is always supersedes our own purpose.

    Nature calculates the event based on time and therefore time plays a very very crucial role. Therefore it is said if your time has not come, you will not die

    but if it has come, noone can stop you from dying. This effect of has also been realized in all religions and in history. So here i am bound to say that time

    is more powerful than nature(god) because is the time which nature reads and cause an effect on you and on an event. Many times man has tried to read this

    time accurately but is no easy game and once mastered can beat nature.

    More than self affirmation, it is important to try to read your subconscious mind at all levels to understand is functioning and is correlation with the

    nature for happy and peaceful life. Therefor many people remain happy in all obstacles because they understand natures cause and effect.
