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
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.
Came across this very insightful and relevant video clip
Do check it out.
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.

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 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!
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.
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.
