Sunday reflection . . . . Those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,



 

Those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,
who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, 
will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress;
my God in whom I trust.”

Psalm 91: 1-2

The Lamb.



  

The Lamb

Little lamb, who made thee
Dost thou know who made thee,
Gave thee life, and bid thee feed
By the stream and o’er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, woolly, bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice?
Little lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?

Little lamb, I’ll tell thee;
Little lamb, I’ll tell thee:
He is called by thy name,
For He calls Himself a Lamb.
He is meek, and He is mild,
He became a little child.
I a child, and thou a lamb,
We are called by His name.
Little lamb, God bless thee!
Little lamb, God bless thee!

− William Blake, from Songs of Innocence (1789)

May the grace of the night’s stillness be mine






May the grace of the night’s stillness be mine 
may the grace of the moon’s guidance be mine 
may the grace of heaven’s vastness be mine 
to renew my soul in sleep
to enlighten my dreams in the night
to open my spirit to eternity 
until the angels of light awaken me
until the morning angels awaken me.

…found only by those who are true ….. and good at heart.

” If God was to be found by bathing and cleaning,
then frogs and fishes would have found
Him long back.

If God was to be found by roaming in jungles,
then cows and other animals would have found
Him long back.

If God was to be found in temples and mosques,
then the birds and the bats would have found
Him long back.

O Bulleh, … God will be found only by those
who are true ….. and good at heart. ”

– Hazrat Bulleh Shah

The real hunger we feel…

220px-Greed,_1924,_06_banchetto

“The attempt to satisfy greed is
like drinking salty water when
thirsty.
When lost in greed we look outward
rather than inward for satisfaction,
yet we never find enough to fill the
emptiness we wish to escape.
The real hunger we feel is for
knowledge of our true nature.”

~Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche~

“Each of our earthly lives reflects our past, from former lives.
So always remember this:
He who acts correctly now, need not fear the future…”

…more blessed to give!

‘A cycle is closed with each receiving,
whereas we start a new cycle whenever we give.

For these reasons, it is always better, more blessed,
to give than to receive.’

World Cancer Day…We can. I can.

12651140_1302232513137151_2914168327300399362_n

Today is World Cancer Day!

I light a candle in honor of those who have lost their lives to cancer, in sympathy with those who are battling cancer and in jubilation with those who have survived cancer!

I light a candle in memory of Cousin Anna (56) who was snatched away by breast cancer about four years ago! Cousin Anna kept her battle with the scourge away from many of us. Like so many relations and friends, I was aware she was receiving some sort of medical treatment from time to time and rather frequently latter but, I never had any inkling that cancer was eating her up. It was only after her death that I learnt she had forbade the few who knew from spreading the word!

Why Anna, an otherwise loquacious and jolly good fellow, would take her health travails quietly into the grave I still cannot understand.

I light a candle in commendation for all individuals, global organizations, research institutes, charities, etc. who are reaching out to “transform the lives of millions affected by cancer.” I join in shouting this year’s World Cancer Day theme:

“We Can. I Can. reduce the global burden of cancer”
