Listen the music of life !

Image
Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round ?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground ?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight ?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night ?

You better slow down,  don’t dance so fast;
Time is short,  the music won’t last.

Do you run through,  each day on the fly ?
When you ask “How are you ?”,  Do you hear the reply ?

When the day is done,  do you lie in your bed;
With the next hundred chores,  running through your head ?

You would better slow down,  don’t dance so fast;
Time is short,  the music won’t last.

Ever told your child,  we will do it tomorrow ?
And in your hast,  Not see his sorrow ?

Ever lost touch,  let a good friendship die;
Cause you never had time,  to call and say “Hi” ?

You would better slow down,  don’t dance so fast;
Time is short,  the music won’t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere;
You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day;
It is like an unopened gift… Thrown away.

Life is not a race,  do take it slower;
H…

One young academically excellent person went to apply for a managerial position in a big company. He passed the first interview, the director did the last interview, made the last decision. The director discovered from the CV that the youth's academic achievements were excellent all the way, from the secondary school until the postgraduate research, Never had a year when he did not score.
The director asked, "Did you obtain any scholarships in school?" The youth answered "none". The director asked, " Was it your father who paid for your school fees?" The youth answered, "My father passed away when I was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees."
The director asked, " Where did your mother work?" The youth answered, "My mother worked as clothes cleaner. The director requested the youth to show his hands. The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect.

The one you feed !

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people. He said, 'My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, confidence, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.'

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: 'Which wolf wins?'

The old Cherokee simply replied, 'The one you feed.' So always think positive and be the master of self not the slave.

These are few drops from the ocen of infinite (Upanishadas)

(1) Transliteration :

Yo vai bhuma tat sukham,
Nalpe sukham asti,
Bhumaiva sukham. ...Upanishada...

Translation :

The Infinite is the satisfying happiness.
In the finite no happiness can ever breathe.
The Infinite alone is the fulfilling happiness.

Meaning :

The Life Infinite is the Delight Infinite.
The finite is a stranger to the infinite Happiness.
Infinity without Delight means the creation without a Creator.
Indeed, this is absurd.
Delight without Infinity means the Creator without the creation.
Indeed, this is equally absurd.

(2) Transliteration :

Anandadd hy eva khalv imani bhutani jayante,
Anandena jatani jivanti
Anandam prayantyabhisam visanti...Upanishada...

Translation :

From Delight we came into existence.
In Delight we grow.
At the end of our journey’s close,
Into Delight we retire.

Meaning :

God has written an open letter to His human children.
His letter runs:
“My sweetest children,
you are the only delight of
My un…

Imminence of God

I am still here
Please don’t morn for me
I am still here
Though you can’t see

I am right by your side
Each night and day
And within your heart
Is where I long to stay

My body is gone
But I am always near
I am everything you feel
See and here

My spirit is free
But I will never depart
Just as long as you keep me
Alive in your heart

I will never wander
Out of your sight
I am the brightest star
That shines in the night

I will never be
Beyond your reach
I am the pure white snow
That blankets the ground

I am the beautiful flower
Of which you are so fond
And I am the clear water
That basills in pond

I am the first bright blossom
That you see in the spring
I am the first elegant rainbow
That April will bring

I am the first ray of light
When the sun starts to shine
And you will always see in the night
That every face on the moon is mine

When you to think
That there is no one to love
You can talk to me
Through the lord above

I will whisper my answers
Through the limbs of the trees
And you will always feel my presence
Through every soft …

Oh, most lovely and lucky lady of golden hue and luster, spread your light here and everywhere to awaken us from the deep inertia of ignorance.
