Journey…

 

                            The journey to understand the

                               true nature of reality requires no paper map,

                         no metal compass, and no breadcrumb

                              left by others.

 

                                       The true journey is one that is travelled

                                           with an inner GPS fully activated,

                                  and a mind as open as a parachute

                                  … perfectly capable of landing exactly

                                                                             where you’re meant to be.

The Bud…

 

 

 

   And the day came when the risk 


to remain tight in a bud was more


painful than the risk


it took to blossom.

The Moment…

 

The moment in between what you once were,

                      and who you are becoming

                          is where the

                                dance of life

                                       really begins.

                                                                                    ~ ` ~   Barbara Deangelis

Wildness…

 

 

I don’t like formal gardens.

I like wild nature.

It’s just the wildness instinct in me,

I Guess.

Whisper a wish…

As the Indian Legend goes;

 

    Whisper a wish to a butterfly,

since a butterfly can make no sound,

 

 

the butterfly cannot reveal….

 

 

 

 

The wish to anyone but the great spirit.

 

 

 

 

In gratitude for giving the beautiful butterfly its freedom,

 

The great spirit always grants the wish…

 

 

 

 

   So , according to legend, by making a wish & giving

 

   The butterfly its freedom…

 

 

 

 

 

  The wish will be taken to the heavens

 

                         and 

 

 

 

 

 

Be Granted…..

 

 


Inner sun…

 

 

   As I walked on my way, I realized that it is not only the sun

 

               which can make a day much brighter.

 

                How is it that we deny ourselves an inner sun, shinning through the silent words of

 

                                                       Nature?

 

 

 

 

 

                     Even your inner colors change as the patterns of

 

 

                  your inner self dance to a new rhythm in life.

 

 

               This must now be part of your daily movement: to recognize, greet, and

 

             listen to all forms of nature, from the lowly moss to the greatest tree.

 

 

 

 

 

                     All share in he one life , all dance to tha same rhythm , all blend

 

 

             their notes in the song of the universe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

    We rejoice, our brother, for soon that song will blend  into your pattern of color ,

 

 

      and the doors of a new and deeper sharing will be thrown wide open…

 

 

 

 

 

You listen to the silent song of my 

 

                             Voice….

 

 

 

 

( words : Michael J . Roads )


Better day…

I’m walking away from the troubles in my life,

 

I’m walking away oh to find a better day …’

No ripples…

 

 

The pond stood still

 

No ripples

 

 

To grow lilies

 

We must leave it dirty

 

 

 

The water invites the frogs

 

Croaking singing now every night

 

 

 

 

To grow lilies in the still pond

 

We must create an entire world

 

 

Create a

 

universe…

 

 

 

is this how it all began ?

to grow lilies

( words : Divyam Surabhi )


Not the flower but the Fragrance…

 

You ask me ,

 

” can you tell us what is the purpose of creation ? ”

 

 

 

 

The world has never been created.

 

It has always been here ,

 

it is eternal.

 

 

 

There is no creator of the world :

 

God is not the creator of the world …

 

 

 

 

god is the

very creative energy of existence —

 

creativity rather than a creator.

 

 

 

He is not the poet but

 

 

the poetry…

 

 

 

Not the dancer

 

but the dance….

 

 

 

 

not the flower but

 

the fragrance…
