Mysterious Manuscript


 The Voynich manuscript is a famous medieval text of about 240 pages written in a mysterious language that so far has proven to be undecipherable. Some of the pages are missing, with around 240 remaining. The text is written from left to right, and most of the pages have illustrations or diagrams. Some pages are foldable sheets.
Although there are many attempts to decode the script it has been stumping cryptologists so far.
Some claims through algorithmic decoding have analyzed the language has similarities to Hebrew and even Mazatec. But there are no conclusive pieces of evidence.
The content has reference to many subjects including herbal medicine, botany, astronomical, biological, cosmological and pharmaceutical sections including a section with recipes.

The manuscript has been kept at the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University since 1969. It’s named after Wilfrid Michael Voynich, the Polish book dealer who purchased it from a Jesuit library in Italy in 1912. The vellum on which it is written has been carbon-dated to the early 15th century, and it may have been composed in Italy during the Italian Renaissance.

Like its contents, the history of ownership of the Voynich manuscript is contested and filled with some gaps. The codex belonged to Emperor Rudolph II of Germany (Holy Roman Emperor, 1576-1612), who purchased it for 600 gold ducats and believed that it was the work of Roger Bacon.

Likewise to this manuscript…
There are many mystical truths
That exists around us undecoded
Some lost in translations, undeciphered
Some beyond our understandings still.
The truth is right here
For us to figure out in time.

States of being

What is happening to our state of being

Our air is impure

Our waters are polluted

Our seasons are erratic

Our forests are fast disappearing

Our land is reclaimed

Our food is contaminated

Almost every kind of food and medicine

Is adulterated.

Our fruits are ripened with chemicals.

Our rice is turning plastic

Our vegetables are genetically modified

Nothing feels real anymore

What is happening to the real?

Is anything authentic at all?

We are living in a virtual world

What is pure and what is contaminated?

We are living in a world of unethical practices.

How do we stay aware?

To spot the differences

To find the real among these fakes.
We are sadly in a world without ethical practices in businesses. We need to find ways to sustain our world . It begins with each of us. As each step to change for better and find solutions starts with understanding the issues up close.

Wisdom has no age

Have been growing vegetables in my terrace garden
Every potted plant has a story to tell
A lesson to share in the growing…

Take this tomato plant for instance
So much growth but not many fruits
Perhaps they were densely planted
And hence contained in their pot

A few tomatoes have showed up
Others have yet to see the light of the day
Amongst these few, the tiniest tomato
Is very visible to the eye, having ripened the earliest.

The rest are as yet awaiting
Patiently for their evolution
Like they say
Wisdom hath no age!

Perhaps this tiny one at best
Received the rays of sunshine
Nourished in the nurture.
Matured well before it’s time.

Shifting perspectives

The truth, in the facades that may appear.
In understanding the real and unreal
The truths and the untruths
And everything in between.

Humanity stands perplexed
At times in the paradoxes of life
Confounded by challenges.
In the throes of confusion.
Sifting through to make sense of it all

Beyond the mirrored existence
Shifting perspectives in the making.
Yet knowing simply all as parts of the same source.

Chk this interesting video on the two sides of life and living .

Thinking Thoughts

Thinking is open to possibilities
Thought is already channelled
To be fair and square
Thinking is about the now
Emerging in this moment
Thought is the past
Over and done.


Yet every thought matters
As it may enable new ways of thinking…
And so it goes
Until these loops form a pattern
And hit a sweet spot of light
Illuminating a new pathway!

Interweaves

The virtue of patience is trust
The virtue of trust is faith
The virtue of faith is a belief
The virtue of belief is knowing
The virtue of knowing is awareness
The virtue of awareness is awakening
The virtue of awakening is consciousness
The virtue of consciousness is wisdom
The virtue of wisdom is life
The virtue of life is in being
The virtue of being is in living
The virtue of living is in experiencing
The virtue of experiencing is in sensing
The virtue of sensing is in feeling
The virtue of feeling is in learning
The virtue of learning is in letting go
The virtue of letting go is in giving
The virtue of giving is in sharing
The virtue of sharing is in abundance
The virtue of abundance is in love
Love is unconditional, & all-pervading
Where love is, virtue is
And so is all.
Savvy

Today having reached a tiny milestone of writing and publishing 250 continous posts I share the joys of the journey in passion, perseverance and most of all in love and patience.

Contemplating on the virtue of patience set me thinking of all the interweaving of virtues. Everything connects and has a reason to be.💙🙏💙

If you truly seek

You will find yourself

A heart full of love

Kindness and compassion

A kindred spirit full of passion

Is awaiting your discovery.

If you choose to neglect

To disown and be indifferent

To let go without a care or concern

What is left is lost in time

Nothing remains of it anymore.

Value the gifts of life in living

Like true love and honour it.

You have all but one life

To sense know and care

And intend to make time to live

The blessing called love.

Savvy
