Building peace

My recent poem ‘The Middle Path of Peace‘ evoked many responses. The following verses are my musings to a comment … Especially the one by a reader on the necessity of war.

I propose here a moment in peace

Through the following verses…

Hate is never meaningful, love is

War is never meaningful, peace is.

To confuse war to be the answer for peace
Is the greatest fallacy of mankind
For the war never truly ends once begun
It sprouts the seeds of hate before it is over.

Yes there are wars fought
When equality and freedom is forfeited
As a privilege of a few
When oppression and chaos reign
When pushed beyond resilience
When backing down is not an option
For it is then a matter of self preservation and survival.

To confuse victory in war
Is the mark of inexperience
No war comes away unscathed
Casualties are a heavy price to pay
Let alone the truth of anguish and scars
Wars are never the answer.

Pain and hurt leaves the vengence behind
And revenge brews in spurts to
to strike someday

The heart of man is like a sponge
Ready to absorb that which flows
Allow the light of love to flow in
Let thoughts of peace seep in
Through every vein.

For love heals the hurt and pain
And empathy helps move beyond revenge
Make an Art of life and living
For War is just a never ending tragedy.

Wars are fought for business sadly

There are no ethics to war.

To fight is not bravery.

True bravery is in finding a way

To avert the war & build peace.

The light of this now!

Deeper the depth of the background

The subject comes into the foreground

Value the contrasts for what they are

As they allow the focus on what you see

To develop the quality of appreciation

Is to understand the strength of every now.

Witness the light of this now shine on brightly.

Learn to see the light in the darkest of dark.

Let infinite abundance of appreciation

fill your heart.

Intend for the best

Reflect on the good

Think positively

Be filled with the grace of hope!

Positive reflections can alter the course of our lives while turning around the life experiences. It is often how we see things that makes a big difference.

When the moments in life are so sweet that… the little voice in your head says …’it cant last ‘…

Just care enough to tell yourself, ‘Maybe its about to get better….💖😊💖

Be ready…

As you begin to share
You start to learn…
You turn the stranger
Into a friend
Not only on the outside
But within you too!

Be ready… to journey on
And receive in the giving
For you may meet along the way…
Parts of you-you may have never met before.

Be ready…
You feel emotions that you never felt before
In your sharing is the learning
Of the power of embodiment
Of being all that you truly are.

Be ready…
As you aspire to learn …
You inspire to share some more…

Be ready
To come away with an understanding
Of the truth of all that you are
Creating from within!

Be ready…

Walk the path of love

Walk on the path of love

A whiff of love
Roses strewn
The path of love
Beckons you

Tread softly
Gentle is the way
For love is fragile
Treasure a trust that
Beholds you!

Winding along
You feel its intensity
In its passion
Yet you persevere
Be unwavering!

Know love teases
And tests you
Beguiles you
To reveal
Yourself to you!
Be true!

For the journey
Is an eternal walk
Infinite is its path
Be yourself at best!
Be the real you!

For all else sheds itself
Like those petals strewn
To be, at best wayfarers
In the trysts of true lovers!

The other side

A BEAUTIFUL WAY OF LOOKING AT THINGS:

A Father was reading a magazine and his little daughter every now and then distracted him. To keep her busy, he tore one page on which was printed the map of the world. He tore it into pieces and asked her to go to her room and put them together to make the map again.

He was sure she would take the whole day to get it done. But the little one came back within minutes with perfect map……When he asked how she could do it so quickly, she said, “Oh…. Dad, there is a man’s face on the other side of the paper….. I made the face perfect to get the map right.” She ran outside to play leaving the father surprised.

MORAL OF THE STORY:
There is always the other side to whatever you experience in this world. Whenever we come across a challenge or a puzzling situation, look at the other side…. You will be surprised to see an easy way to tackle the problem.

A few musings…

The difference between just looking and seeing is so much in the depth and dimension of expansions in our flow of thoughts .An expansion in our acceptability and flexibility changes the seemingly complex situations to simple solutions .:)

Each moment is a new me.

Change, the one that never changes
Is Nature’s way of continuing the Eternal cycle of life and death.

The Infinite Cosmic Energy, being the Eternal Centre
Changes keep on happening
In every atom, molecule, particle, and cell.
Thus widening the horizon,

From Invisible subtle to Visible gross.
Creation and destruction, a part of this change,
The various cycles of Life and seasons
Changing monotony to a variety
In mind and matter.

Colours and moods transient, every moment.
Wondering in awe to the moment next.
Dwell not in the past,
Fret not the Future,
Never to lose the Magic of the Present.
Each moment a new me is born.

Be present to cherish the Present.
Be aware n awake to witness

The blossom of bud to fragrant flower.

‘Your poems become my muse’. 😊.

This is what I received from my mother this morning after she read my yesterday’s post ‘ Glimmers of hope’.

‘Thank you, mom, for writing your reflections. It truly means much to me.’

Have simply added some pictures to go along with her words.
