#PoeticThursday . . . . To A Rose







Ah! Beautiful Rose!
To me thy petals oft disclose
The flaming Beauty of the tender rays
That in the Master’s Sun I praise!
.
Beautiful Rose–sweet Rose of tender Truth
That all is Life Forevermore! Oft in my youth
Beside thy ope’ning petals I would lie
Wrapt in the Beauty of thy softness! I
Would gaze upon you as a lover would, and you
Would sweetly, earnestly my raptures view!
.
Ah! Rose! Most Beautiful Rose!
In thee so tender–God’s Repose
Must surely be–so pure, Sweet Rose, art thou!
Dear Rose, accept my humble praises! How
The love of thee remains, Sweet Rose–in absence, too–
For thou art pure, Kind Rose–all pure and true!
.

……….Life is a Beautiful Tapestry…….





………….Imagine an exquisite carpet……..
..with intricate design and glowing colors….
………….the thread are all the same……
………………but the colors differs…….
…………….each color plays its part….
………………..dark highlights light…….

…..It is the difference in color and texture…..
..which makes the tapestry of life so exciting…
…You are an important thread in that carpet…..
……………..A part of the Whole……..

There is a stage after which language fails us.





 

There is a stage after which language fails us.
When you step into the zone of love, you won’t need language.”

You could have……….BUT…




” You could have grown cold, but you grew courageous instead. You could have given up,
but you kept on going. You could have seen obstacles, but you called them adventures.
You could have called them weeds, but instead you called them wildflowers. You could
have died a caterpillar, but you fought on to be a butterfly. You could have denied
yourself goodness, but instead you chose to show yourself some self-love. You could
have defined yourself by the dark days, but instead through them you realized your light.”

~ S.C Lourie

#TenderTuesday . . . the small still Voice of Love





Everything becomes sacred when we walk in the Spirit.
Every leaf, every tree,
Every eye and open heart.
The birds that sing
The ground we work and plant.
The children lost in play.
The broken disheveled and frayed.
The enemy at our door.
The eagle who mounts and soars
Every person is Beloved
There is no one God does not love.
The whole world is loved
As we walk in the vast wonder of God
Listen, Listen…

~ Bob Holmes #AmazingGrace

Mahatma Gandhi, the Apostle of Non-Violence!




Today is the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi; the Soul of modern India and Apostle of non-violent resistance and tolerance! We join our friends all over the world who draw inspiration from this great soul in celebrating his life and times!
The Sage Gandhi! Deep in spiritual insight, he cautioned against blindly implementing the often quoted Law “an eye for an eye”! According to him, a literal observance will only achieve a negative effect! His words:
“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
An astute statesman and philosopher who however shunned any form of personality cult and grandiose propagation of his thoughts! With uncommon humility he told his followers:
“There is no such thing as “Gandhism”, and I do not want to leave any sect after me. I do not claim to have originated any new principle or doctrine. I have simply tried in my own way to apply the eternal truths to our daily life and problems…The opinions I have formed and the conclusions I have arrived at are not final. I may change them tomorrow. I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills.”
Gandhi’s birthday and principles got a boost when on 15 June, 2007 the United Nations declared October 2nd the International Day of Non- Violence!
The General Assembly resolution asks all members of the UN system to commemorate 2nd October in “an appropriate manner and disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness.”
So, dear friends, even if you do not celebrate Gandhi, you should at least, pause to reflect on the evils and victims of violence; to reflect on how violence is harming every aspect of our lives; be it physical, psychological, cultural, religious, political or, otherwise!
Above all, let us all, like Mahatma Gandhi resolve not to perpetrate, aid or abet violence in any form and under any guise!
Happy GANDHI JAYANTI to our friends in India!
