An action that builds confidence is better than inaction which arises from fear.
At times the action is a success, at times , may be the action needs a new direction to be successful but action is better than no action.
Every moment in time
Is a gift of God.
In both the so called
Good and bad
The easy and difficult times
There is always a learning
To sense and understand
To evolve along the path.
Yet I am a lover of the mornings…
It gives me hope to look forward to
No matter the darkness of the night.
One more chance to make life better
To share and create
To heal and to help another
There is a beauty in every dawn
The way the sun rises every day
The way the darkness gives in to light
I am more me in the mornings
I enjoy the waking moments unhurried
I revel in the now in the bliss of bless
I witness the dance of light at dawn
As the sun beams its rays across
As earth awakens itself from slumber
The chirping birds fill me with joy
Its not noise to me, its a song
Of motivation and energy
To carry on through the day.
Mornings share hope for the day
Do give yourself an early start
Make mornings work for you
Bask in the grace of light.
The Synergy of the sun is upon you!
Know the mornings after a rested night
Are specially conducive to invoke
Your creativity in the things you do
So write create draw paint sing & dance.
Sleep not the mornings away.
What a waste of life’s inspiration it would be
Every morning is a gift to yourself
To unbox and release hope some more.
Life and living can be both beautiful and challenging beyond compare…
Touched by these heartfelt words I came across so much that I just had to share..
“Take me out to the street, son, I still have good legs. If I walk with you, I won’t feel old …
Invite me to your home, son, Sunday morning; to share your good table and feel accompanied …
Talk to me with love, son, don’t challenge me or shake me; we old people are like children we like to be pampered, to smile without discomfort …
Celebrate my birthdays, don’t criticize my follies; I’ll try to be brave, even if bitterness arises …
Don’t push me away from you, don’t talk to me in anger; I still have my mind clear, the memories of the past …
Come visit me at home, my son, I will not ask you for anything; just your presence and contemplate your face …
Don’t leave me sad and alone, don’t put me to bed; the doctors are wrong, the pain is in the soul … ”
Care to give of yourself
Someday you may need it too!
Age is no bar
To create a value
For age is just a number.
Experience of living, matters.
Treat life with care
For life comes a full circle.
Life can at times be lonely
Make time to be present
In the life of those who need you.
Just a bit of your time
A kind word or deed
Will make all the difference.
Your near and dear ones
Need to sense it.
Share the love.
There are few gifts
Of life in the living
Like joy of laughter
Like the happiness of smiles
Like the sharing of loving kindness
Like sensing of gratitude
They add to your life
They heal your being
Body mind and Soul.
The more you have it
And live expressing it
The better the health of your heart.
A good thought
A good deed
A good laugh
And all is well
In the lightness of being.
Sensing my share of these gifts.
Sail through life
Steering away from density
Be in the moment.
Rest easy sleep well
Be generous be mindful
Let your moves be wise
Be safe than sorry!
Let your boat of life be light
Burden it not by overloading
For it gets difficult to carry
The weight of your burdens
Be light and sail on
In the lightness of being.
The Isha Upanishad (ईशोपनिषद्, ‘īśopaniṣad’) is one of the shortest of the Upanishads, in form more like a brief poem than a philosophical treatise, consisting of 17 or 18 verses in total. The Upanishad constitutes the final chapter (adhyāya) of the Shukla Yajurveda and survives in two versions, called Kanva (VSK) and Madhyandina (VSM).
Simply profound verses.
All The Truths of living life in this ephemeral world is contained in those lines.
Sharing a few more musings by my mother on the same lines.
Whatever is available to you in this world, learn to enjoy without the feeling of possession.
You are one among the many in line. Take care while it is with you without owning it.
Create no space for hatred
Have no wish for revenge
Choose to not be filled with vengeance
Channel thoughts away from anger
Have no room for haste.
Accept patience as your friend
Be mindful, be peaceful, be grateful
And all is well.
The beauty of life
Is in its vulnerability
As much as its resiliency
Take a tender blooming flower
It is fragile and delicate
But it expresses itself
With all its abilities.
It surely must be sensing
The morning’s vigour & vitality
The oppression of the afternoon sun
And the looming darkness of the night.
Yet it cares not that it’s time is limited
Or when the evening shadows befall
Its purpose is fulfilling for the world to see!
Such is the beauty of impermanency.
Who you are becoming
Has much to do with
Who you are being with.
You are bit of all
In between the Influences
And betwixt the Confluences
Of all the people you meet & interact.
You create yourself
Carving patterns of your life
With these experiences.
Negate not those who teach you
For learning comes
From all quarters.
Think of your circle of life
Pay heed to your circle
Keep it healthy & contribute with grace
Watch it closely and imbibe the good.
Make amends if needed
Rally in strength & power of the circle.
Understand your space in the circle
Choose you circle well!
