Here is another share of my dear mother’s reflections on ‘Life and Living’ with hope and the value of ordinary things like the school subjects , the primary lessons we often take for granted as we study without thinking too much about it. I am compelled to share this line of thought for its ingenuity and how it mentions the values of lessons from nature which often is the most overlooked but actually so full of wisdom.
Life is the real teacher. It’s teaching methods may sometimes be playful, sometimes very harsh, and it may seem like there is truly no way of escaping them.
Profit and loss are not only money related,
They can be manifested in relations too.
The premium of love and care one invests,
Will return as interest manifold in days of need.
And certainly no scheme will tell it is too late to invest.
The more one adds smile and support
The less will be the worries and loneliness.
As they are inversely proportioned.
X and y denotes the unknown
Problems, that seem ready to pounce.
Don’t you worry,
As you are taught to get them solved.
Every single point and line
has a measure and significance.
Geometry taught us not to ignore any
and the value of boundary.
History gave the realisation,
Evil and greed perishes
How much ever strong they seem.
Always goodness stood in the victory stand in the end.
Geographic differences help too
To understand that variety is a way of life.
Your form and food is Nature’s decision.
Value the differences, to be in harmony.
Biology taught that all are one in the core after all.
Power of energies,
and laws of Nature gave the knowledge
To bow down and conquer.
Spirituality taught the most valuable lesson.
The real enemies are the ones
that are nourished
as ego, pride, vanity greed, anger and hatred.
I reap what I sow.
So none is responsible,for my pain or pleasure.
Initial years are like blue prints.
But few read them correctly,
Even less understands,
Even fewer practice.
The primary lessons…
Are professors of Life.
Each subject taught
Are the preparations
For the life to be faced in essence.
Quantity of money to be possessed
Is not the measure of life.
The quality of love and respect
Is what distinguishes from the rest.
The variations of Nature,
The constant changes
Makes every moment a new one.
And that can be the dawn.
New ray of hope in the horizon.
Remember the lessons
And proceed further.
Never look back in despair.
Bring back the beam of smile
To fill the surroundings with joy and light.
As the world is truly vast to explore & delight!
