Psalm of life

Image
At every stage of age, life seems different. It is truly said that life is full of mystery, unfold it. We all are travellers and life's a journey. It gives all kind of experience and learning.
But we may pass it in eat, drink and be merry. We don’t tend to think beyond it. We live as all live, mere a monotonous life. Once socrates said, “I would be a dissatisfied Socrates than to be a satisfied pig.” We all are fallen in typical usual life. Nothing new, nothing special, nothing different, nothing ambitious. Just passing life.
In childhood, I studied one rhyme, “Solomon Grundy, Born on a Monday, Christened on Tuesday, Married on Wednesday, Took ill on Thursday, Grew worse on Friday, Died on Saturday, Buried on Sunday, That was the end, Of Solomon Grundy. It describes our tenure of life.
Main is, when we live a life in a unique way. If inner fire is cold, the man is not alive. Let us try to ignite the inner fire. Let us think in distinctive way. Let us understand the life in real wa…

Attitude of gratitude

“When we change the way we look at things, things we look at change.” ~ Wayne Dyre
Gratitude is an ingredient that turns lack into more than enough, sorrow into happiness and defeat into victory. If we want to create a more happy and fulfilled life, if we want to have an abundance on every level of life, the way is to feel blessed for whatever we have.
I personally realized three points that changed my state of mind from complaint to gratitude. (1) I could have more than I have, but what if I could have less than I have. (2) If I am not grateful now, when will I be? One who thinks I will be happy after having something, it’s an illusion. (3) One who is in lack can be fulfilled but one who always feels lack can’t be fulfilled.
Being grateful in the now is requisite. One does so is happy everywhere. Happy and abundant is he, who is deeply grateful by heart. In a real sense, gratitude is an attitude. Here are a few inspiring words for developing gratitude.
Be thankful that you don’t have e…

Learn to wait

Image
Wait. The most important learning in life. It’s a wise saying: Jam yesterday, jam tomorrow, no jam today.
When we aim high, when we yen something, when we struggle hard, when we pour all, and as a result when we don’t get anything, what would be the situation of mind.
Anyone can lose heart, lose hope and give up. It's natural. In such distressing moments, God wants us to learn the importance of waiting.
Longing is the most difficult situation for a man. When a man loses faith, none can help him. So in the hankering situation, be calm. Keep faith and hope in mind. Never let them go down.
Initially, when we saw a seed we care a lot. We pour water, give fertilizer, spread medicines, we do everything for it to grow. But if we lose hope and give up a halfway, we won’t get fruits out of it. So the way is: have hope and keep on putting efforts.
If we see with a positive eye, there is a joy hidden in every condition. Man must learn how to find it. We can enjoy difficulties. We grow and be st…

Who is happy ?

THE bird wishes it were a cloud. The cloud wishes it were a bird. ~ Stray Birds
We think of what is not, and don't think of what is. Being happy for what we are and what we have is true wisdom. I am happy for what I am and what I have. I am perfect, whole and complete. I am original and unique. I am divine. Feel good for own self. Feel blessed, happy and esteemed. A short story about it.
A crow lived in the forest and was absolutely satisfied in life. But one day he saw a swan. “This swan is so white,” he thought, “and I am so black. This swan must be the happiest bird in the world.”
He expressed his thoughts to the swan. “Actually,” the swan replied, “I was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a parrot, which has two colors. I now think the parrot is the happiest bird in creation.” The crow then approached the parrot. The parrot explained, “I lived a very happy life until I saw a peacock. I have only two colors, but the peacock has multiple colors.”
The crow then …

A dialogue with God

Image
Once a man looked at sky and asked, "Oh God, please talk to me." Then a bulbul bird sang a beautiful song. But a man could not hear it !!
Then again he looked at sky and whispered, "Oh God, I want to listen your voice!" At the same time thunder stroked in clouds with long rumbling sound and lightning. But the lost man did not get it !!  
He was amazed for ignorance of God ! At that dark night when no one was nearby, he said, "Oh god, I want to see you ! Please give me your glance !" At the same time one star twinkled with sparking shine. But that man could not perceive it !!
Now he was about to cry. He said, "Oh God, I do not understand that why are you ignoring me ? At least show me your miracle today !" At the same time labour pain started to his wife. Immediately he brought her to the hospital. After some time he was gifted with a cute little child with beautiful eyes. But alas ! That man was still not able to understand anything !!
Now he became…

Put on shoes !

One day, a young King decided to visit the local townspeople. He rarely went outside of the palace grounds, but he did enjoy meeting the people that came to visit him. He also enjoyed being barefoot. He loved to stroll through his scenic gardens and green lawns, enjoying the feel of the well-tended earth beneath his feet.

The day was beautiful, so, with his court accompanying him, the King began walking towards the nearest town. The road was hard and barren, with wheel ruts, and sharp pebbles in the street, and while the townspeople were thrilled to see their King, the poor King was in terrible discomfort the entire time.

After returning to his palace, the King examined his feet. They were blistered and bruised from the day's walk. He had never been in so much pain.

He didn't want this to dampen his spirits, though. He had enjoyed his visit with the local people, and he wanted to see them more often, but he couldn't bare the thought of spending another day on that terrible…

Colored toys

Image
When I bring to you colored toys, my child,
I understand why there is such a play of colors on clouds, on water,
and why flowers are painted in tints
when I give colored toys to you, my child.

When I sing to make you dance
I truly know why there is music in leaves,
and why waves send their chorus of voices to the heart of the listening earth
when I sing to make you dance.

When I bring sweet things to your greedy hands
I know why there is honey in the cup of the flowers
and why fruits are secretly filled with sweet juice
when I bring sweet things to your greedy hands.

When I kiss your face to make you smile, my darling,
I surely understand what pleasure streams from the sky in morning light,
and what delight that is that is which the summer breeze brings to my body

An attitude

Image
As I think and grow, I understand the impact of an attitude in life. An attitude is more important than reality. It is more valuable than education or money, success or failure, skills or appearance & what others say or act. An attitude is higher than everything. It can make or break. It can create or destroy. Ultimately it plays a vital role in building a life.
Remarkable thing is that we are the in-charge of our attitude and we have a choice to have it positive or negative. We can’t avoid the inevitable, but we can do one thing that is to play with an attitude. Who can play with own attitude is the master of self. So if we want to master the self then we must learn how to master an attitude.The man with a mastery of an attidue can overcome any obstacle and rule over any circumstance that falls in life. “Mastering others is strength, but mastering self is true power.” Lao Tzu

"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference."
~ Winston Churchill
