Some Very Beautiful Examples of Innocence, which will touch your heart…
1. Author and lecturer, Leo Buscaglia, once talked about a contest he was asked to judge.
The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.
The winner was:
A four-year-old child, whose next door neighbour was an elderly gentleman, who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old man’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbour, the little boy just said: ‘Nothing, I just
helped him cry.’
2. Students, of class one in a school, were discussing a student’s family picture. One little boy in the picture had a hair colour, different from the other family members.
One of the other students suggested that he was adopted.
A little girl said: ‘I know all about
adoption, bcoz I was adopted..’
‘What does it mean to be adopted ?’, asked another child.
‘It means’, said the girl, ‘that you grew in your mommy’s heart, instead of her tummy.!’
3. Whenever I’m disappointed with my life, I stop and think about little Jamie Scott.
Jamie was trying out for a part in the school play.
His mother told me that he’d set his heart on being in it, though she feared he would not be chosen..
On the day the parts were awarded, I went with her to collect him after school.
Jamie rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and excitement.. ‘Guess what, Mom,’ he shouted, and then said those words that will remain a lesson to me..: ‘I’ve been chosen to clap and cheer.’
4. An eye witness account from New York City , on a cold day in December.
A little boy, about 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe store on the road, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering
A lady approached the young boy and said: ‘My, but you’re in such deep thought staring in that window!’
The boy replied:’I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes.’
The lady took him by the hand, went into the store, and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy.
She then asked if he could give her a basin of water and a towel.
He quickly brought them to her.
She took the little fellow to the back
part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with the towel.
By this time, the clerk had returned with the socks.
Placing a pair upon the boy’s feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes..
She tied up the remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him. She patted him on the head and said, ‘No doubt, you will be more comfortable now..’
As she turned to go, the astonished kid caught her by the hand, and looking up into her face, with tears
in his eyes, asked her:
*’Are you God’s wife………?’*
A bird, a tree & a mountain
Far above at the top of the tree
The birds perch themselves on the branches
Ready to fly on moments notice
They are light and free
Deep in the ground the roots of a tree
Growing in the thick of things
Amidst the densely packed earth
Digging deeper in stability.
On higher ground the mountain rests Gradually building upon itself.
Or chipping away itself to erosion
Witnessing it all as the world whizzes through…
As the birds fly away
In search of food or when predators strike
And the trees bears fruits
As roots grow strong.
Life and living have a reason to be.
Witness the wisdom playing through
Every whiff of the wind, every bit of stillness
Every sway every bend every move
Every thing that is was and will be
For all is a dance of infinite wonder.
Who are you like
The roots of a tree
Or a mountain
What do you resonate with?
Once upon a time
Long long ago
In a far away land
Was a sweet little child
Who used to have a fairy tale book
Read to her by her dear mother
Every night as she was tucked into bed
She would hear a story from her mom
But there were clauses to this plan.
It was a given thing between the two
The story had to have a happy ending
The story includes people and animals
Or even a garden of fruits and flowers
Enchanting stories of courage and dare
Of compassion and care
Of humanity at large
In goodwill and love
Or even seemingly silly stories
Of life and living in general
Of fun and frolic.
But there was a pact between the two
Which her mother followed to the tee.
Simply there was one area
The story must not go to or be
Of things above in the sky.
Although her mother was too drawn
To explore the mystery of space…
But the little girl felt a little too lost
To fathom space and beyond
May be it was just her nature
Or perhaps there was more to it
Of why she was uncomfortable with unknown space!
Leaving a few musings in contemplation…
Are fears rational or just an illusion in the making?
What are irrational fears?
Are they there for a reason?
Do fears manifests from past lives?
Do fears eventually help us someway?
How does one overcome these fears?
Can we grow out of our little fears?
Do you have any experience of fears as a kid?
Have you chosen to outgrow them?
Have you managed to face your fears?
For life awaits on the other side of fear!
Yesterday evening as I went out walking I couldnt help notice the stark reality that stares at us . In people around us!
Often find there are more grim faces out in the world with tension written all over in their body language.
A serious disposition, drooping shoulders downward or vacant gaze, clenched teeth or fist , tight jaw. People think twice before smiling or making eye contact.
Or on the other extreme… every one these days seems more connected to their mobiles than ever. And when they are asked to come back to reality there is a gap in awareness. People are overwhelmed by this divide that is happening all around us.
Life need not be overwhelming all the time. Perhaps a few personal perspectives need a shift.
Life and living
Life is easier when
- You make friends with your past.
- You realize you create happiness.
- You stop your overthinking.
- You realize time heals it all.
- You live and let live.
- Your avoid passing judgements.
- You begin to start smiling more.
Would be happy to hear more of what makes life easier for you…Do feel free to share of what you think can make life easy!
Some songs weild power over us
Of playing with our emotions
Of altering reality in just a while!
Merging reality and dreams
Shifting our perceptions and reactions
Making us cry or laugh as we tune in
Some songs bring memories rushing in
Of moments lived and loved
Songs can create moods
Play on our senses
Shake thoughts up
Or make things feel alright!!
Everyone of us may have
Our own special song
Appealing to our senses
Touching base to who we truly are
Have so many favorite songs
That leave lasting impressions
Of life made a little more memorable
All evoked through those untold stories!
What about you?
