Lead thou me on

Image
Lead, kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom,
Lead thou me on; The night is dark, and I am far from home; Lead thou me on. Keep thou my feet; I do not ask to see The distant scene; one step enough for me.
I was not ever thus, nor prayed that thou Shouldst lead me on; I loved to choose and see my path; but now Lead thou me on. I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears, Pride ruled my will : remember not past years.

So long thy power hath blest me, sure it still Will lead me on O’er moor and fen, o’er crag and torrent, till The night is gone, And with the morn those angel faces smile Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile.

By John Henry Newman

A little truth about life

Image
This is a small story about human feelings and family bondage.
It’s another morning... Again I have to go to the office.
Oh, this is me… I shouted having a glance at my snap in today’s newspaper. But what the HELL is it doing in the death column?? ……..Strange !…
One sec... Let me think, last night when I was going to the bed I had a severe pain in my chest; but I don’t remember anything after that, I think I had a sound sleep.
It’s morning now, ohh….. It’s already 10:00 AM, where is my coffee? I will be late for the office and my boss will get a chance to irritate me. Where is everyone…??? I screamed. “I think there is a crowd outside my room, let me check.” I said to myself. So many people….. Not all of them crying… But why are some of them crying ??
WHAT IS THIS??? I’m laying there on the floor… “I AM HERE” … I shouted!!! No one listens. “LOOK I AM NOT DEAD” … I screamed once again!!! No one is interested in me. They were all looking at me on the bed.
I went back to my bedroom. “Am I dead??” I as…

Spring of Happiness

It is interesting to know... which country is the happiest country in the world... refer the link below..
http://www.livescience.com/51327-happiest-countries-list.html
It inspires us to think......
We have rich and divine heritage of Vedas, Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita... How many Gods we believe in India... How many religions we follow in India... How many rituals, customs and traditions we follow in India.... If we have the most ancient and rich heritage... If we have so many Gods and Religions... If we are following such good rituals and customs... Then why we are sad and unhappy. India must be the 1st in the list... But India has 70th position. Still we need to Introspect...
Why it is so... Because we don't understand where the happiness is... We are trying to find it somewhere outside.. somewhere in the materialistic objects. If happiness lies in worldly articles and ornaments then, who possess it, must be happy. But we see in the society that those who have big banglow, big bank…

Purity

Image
Life of my life,
I shall ever try to keep my body pure,
knowing that thy living touch
is upon all my limbs.

I shall ever try to keep all untruths
out from my thoughts,
knowing that thou art that truth
which has kindled the light of reason in my mind.

I shall ever try to drive all evils
away from my heart and
keep my love in flower,
knowing that thou hast thy seat
in the inmost shrine of my heart.

And it shall be my endeavor
to reveal thee in my actions,
knowing it is thy power gives me strength to act.

By Rabindranath Tagore

Break limits

Image
An elephant can lift in excess of a ton of weight with just its trunk. Still an elephant is conditioned to stay in one place with a weak rope and a stake. Only a small rope tied to its front leg holds an elephant. No chains, no cages. It is obvious that the elephant can, at anytime, break away from its bonds but for some reason, it does not.
The reason is that, when the elephant is a baby and much smaller, it is tied to a strong chain and strong tree. The baby is weak but the chain and tree are strong. The baby is not used to being tied, so it keeps tugging and pulling the chain, in vain. A day comes when it realizes that all the tugging and pulling will not help and it gives up, thinking that it cannot break away from the bond. It stops and stands still.
And when the baby elephant becomes the mighty giant elephant, he is tied with a weak rope and a small stake. The elephant could with one tug, walk away free, but it goes nowhere because it has been conditioned to believe that it cannot…

Youth

Image
Age is a quality of mind
If you have left your dreams behind
If your ambitions’ fires are dead
If you no longer look ahead
If hope is cold…
Then you are old…then you are old
But
If from life you take the best
If in life you keep the jest
No matter how years go by
No matter how birthdays fly
If love you hold…
Then you are not old…then you are not old
