A prayer is a bow of acceptance.
A prayer is a joyous amalgamation to the divine within.
There is always a reason
For things as they are
For people to be who they are
For time to be as is
So dont worry!
Just be happy…
Today morning I happened to read my mother’s musings… which was written back in time on life. I share it here for I think it comes across as a relevant reminder for a pause in reflection.
No one is without faults.
To err is human, to forgive is divine.
Perfection in our speech, appearance, behaviour & habits are all our wants. But is it possible? Being wrong, doing wrong things, saying inappropriate words,-intentionally or not -is all in our nature. Do we realise, we too can be wrong sometimes , before pointing others.
Forgiving, if not forgetting is also in
in our nature. But how many of us are ready to do that. It is because of our ego and pride, putting ourselves first, comes before everything.
There is a proverb in Tamil. ” Even elephants can slip. ” How much ever perfect, one tends to be, mistakes happen many ways knowingly or unknowingly. If we keep this in mind , forgiving others, accepting people with their faults becomes easier.
Each is born & brought up differently. Values & principles change as per their culture , beliefs, situations and circumstances. Being stubborn & sticking to our thoughts , narrows our outlook of the world.
When we widen our spectrum, understanding & accepting others as they are, becomes much easier.
When we shift our perspective a little & start looking from other’s eyes, our shortcomings will become visible. Let’s be true n honest in our judgements.
We all need to co exist . Criticism, unless asked, distances us. Instead of accusations , appreciation & acknowledgement will bring us closer to each other. After all peace is what all of us want.
Above all we all are born with different nature by birth which is hard to change. We cannot change the stripes of a zebra. Acceptance & adjustment to a certain level is the road to peaceful co- existence.
So to have good relationships
If not forgive
If not adjust.
We need not be divine. But need not be fault finders too. As fellow human beings , with erring in our nature, let’s all strive to live peacefully & happily acknowledge each other as they are.
A poignant tale of a little child sensing the favoritism by her own father was shared by my friend Ali Anani in his post….
Here are my reflections on this post… which I had initially shared with him privately but then realized that perhaps it needs to be read and understood in the larger context of the trials and tribulations in life and living..
Truth has a way of baring open the wounds of the heart and mind on its path of healing the hurt.
For truth is on its own path of self correction in this world.
For unfairness and
Injustice has to somedayfind justice
Exclusion to inclusion
Doubts to clarity.
When truth speaks
In one way or another
It is important to listen
In empathy without judgements
Truth speaks as it is
In all of innocence
Or in wisdom of awareness.
Innocence can be daunting to handle . But addressing the truth one way or the other
Leads to discoveries of how little we know or of what is sensed & perceived.
In the story that my friend shared…here are instances of lack of inclusion in a family
Where in one day there is marked difference in the way the father speaks,
When the child says
Why are you speaking to me…
Interesting to note that you perceived the young child as witty
Whereas another may perceive it as defiance,or even an evidence of an awareness of lack of inclusion and discrimination at this household in the young child’s mind.
And that she is voicing it in all of innocence.
What would be of significance is how the father addresses this brewing disconnect.
Lack of love can be a difficult phase at any age especially for a child.
Let’s trust the universe to show the way for this child to receive what she is yearning for one way or another.
May every life be able to sense love and live life lovingly.
The blessed touch of kindness
In thoughts, words & in deeds
Can transform the moments in every now…
Choose kindness always.
The blessed touch of kindness makes an ordinary day blessedly beautiful 😊
The soul knows the truths…
Yet the spirit is untamed.
To understand the wisdom.
It is important to create space
To allow learning to take place.
Humility is dormant
When ego is dominant.
Humility is patience in waiting
Invoking wisdom in humility
Humility is a conscious practice in awareness.
Until it becomes a way of life.
In knowing that there is always more
Than what the eyes can see
Or the spirit can do
The soul knows
To reach beyond knowing
It is important to acknowledge the space
To allow learning to take place
Humility is dormant
When ego is dominant.
Humility is patience in waiting
A practice of humility
In thoughts words & deeds,
In listening to understand,
In letting go in faith and fortitude,
In making way for gratitude
In being hopeful in trust
In moderation and measure
Can unlock the inner potential
For humility is full of possibilities.
This post is stemming from reflections to my post by a reader on LinkedIn. I simply choose to delve a bit with the insightful thoughts.
And these verses birthed along the way.
The wall of the mind
Is in each of us to forge through
In valuing the space between
Two thoughts two steps or two notes.
In choosing harmony of synchrony
In conscious awareness
In discerning thoughts
In response than reaction
In connecting the dots
In realizing the grace of unity.
In sensing the strength
Of the circle of conscious connections.
The river of time is ever flowing
Where are you in this now?
Are you adrift for a reason or flowing along in purpose?
Are you sensing there is more
For you to do before you arrive
Where you want to go…
Are you feeling you are rushed
Carried through without a say
Or are you fighting alone
And wishing for some support and strength
Know wherever you are in this journey
You are meant to be and do
All that you deeply intend
For the river courses through
And finds its way to the sea…
Trust time to deliver all I’m good time
Trust yourself along the way
For you are not only in the flow
You are the flow
This is just a reminder to yourself
To recognize your uniqueness
To acknowledge your own self
You have a responsibility to yourself
To bring forth your potential
And engage with this now with all of your ability.
Your life is full of possibilities
Awaiting your action
Move with all of your being.
Sense the power of your own spirit & soul
Bring out the vibrance that is actually you.
So much of your uniqueness
Is awaiting expression from you.
That only you can!
Question is then how to be enthused,
Into doing the same tasks differently?
And break free from rut of routine.
Yet make this day great!
Stay hopeful, see life’s potential
Create the possibilities
It’s all in the way of envisioning
How you want to build your life
It’s all up to you!
The day we learn to be light and live in lightness and not take things so seriously, we start truly living.
After all the sun will rise and set in its own course, life will flow in the river of time, why not think of living it cruising along knowing nothing lasts forever.
Whenever life feels a little too weary..
Know tomorrow is another day
And there is always a sun awaiting to shine…
Our thought vibrations create a change, even a single one
Make sure to think well!
Words create waves, even a single word
Make sure it is positive!
Actions create ripples even a single deed
Make sure it’s well intended!
All the good in the world
Flows in to your life
In a simple act of making space
For positive intentions
By subtracting the negatives
In mindful awareness
And consistent practice…
Life begins to shift for the better.
Make a positive intention now!
A picture that is open to so many interesting interpretations…
Is this a stairway to heaven
The path that sets you free
Steps that lead the way
To the light of eternal truth
Your life is given to you
A knowing is bestowed upon you
In hope that you will seek
And find the truth of your being.
All answers are within you
To sense and understand
Life is both hell and heaven if you wish.
All it needs is a stairway to the within.
