The Silent Awakener………

He is The Silent Awakener

Who walks this beautiful Earth

With mindful timid steps

Sitting in natures gorgeous bliss

A chorus of sweet songs sung

By the birds flying in the skies

Rivers that taught him to listen

With a passionate loving heart

Not an ant would he like to crush

Sympathising when trees are being cut

And innocent animals being slaughtered

For the pleasures of foolish men

Love and blessings are his forte

He is above religious dogmas

Working tirelessly uplifting humanity

Silently he awakens these souls

Embraces all with immense joy

Who are ready to receive his grace

And walk courageously towards

A Happy World of Love and Kindness

Where nothing exists but ONLY LOVE…………………

The Beauty of a Woman….

Image result for images of audrey hepburn

When she was asked to reveal her beauty secrets, actress Audrey Hepburn quoted this poem, which was read at her funeral:

To have attractive lips, pronounce words of kindness.

To have beautiful eyes, look at what beautiful people have in them.

To stay thin, share your meals with those who are hungry.

To have beautiful hair, let a child pass his hand every day in it.

To have a beautiful maintenance, walk knowing that you are never alone, because those who love you and loved you accompany you.

People, more than objects, need to be repaired, tended, revived, claimed and saved; never reject anyone.

Think about it; if one day you need a hand helping, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.

As you get older, you will realize that you have two hands, one to help yourself, the other to help those who need it.

The Beauty of a Woman is not in the clothes she wears, her face or her way of fixing her hair. The Beauty of a Woman is seen in her eyes, for it is the open door on her heart, the source of her love.

The Beauty of a Woman is not in her makeup, but in the true beauty of her soul. It is the tenderness that she gives, love, passion that expresses and gives cadence to her Beauty.

One day a man saw an old lady, stranded on the side of the road, but even in the dim light of the day, he could see she needed help. So he pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out. His Pontiac was sputtering when he approached her.  Even with the smile on his face, she looked worried. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He did not look safe; he looked poor and hungry.

He could see that she was frightened, standing out there in the cold. He knew how she felt. It was that chill which only fears can put in you. He said, “I’m here to help you, ma’am. Why don’t you wait in the car where it’s warm? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson”.  Well, all she had was a flat tire, but for an old lady, that was bad enough too. Bryan crawled under the car looking for a place to put the jack, skinning his knuckles a time or two.  Soon he was able to change the tire. But he had to get dirty and his hands hurt.

As he was tightening up the lug nuts, she rolled down the window and began to talk to him. She told him that she was from St. Louis and was only just passing through. She could not thank him enough for coming to her aid. Bryan just smiled as he closed her trunk. The lady asked how much she owed him. Any amount would have been all right with her. She was quite affluent. She already imagined all the awful things that could have happened had he not stopped.

Bryan never thought twice about being paid. This was not a job to him. This was helping someone in need, and God knows there were plenty, who had given him a hand in the past. He had lived his whole life that way, and it never occurred to him to act any other way.  He told her that if she really wanted to pay him back, the next time she saw someone who needed help, she could give that person the assistance they needed, and Bryan added, “And do think of me.”  He waited until she started her car and drove off. It had been a cold and depressing day, but he felt good that he had come to the help of an old lady, as he headed for home.

A few miles down the road the lady saw a small café. She went in to grab a bite to eat, and take the chill off before she headed home. It was a dingy looking restaurant. Outside were two old gas pumps.
The whole scene was unfamiliar to her. She went and sat on one of the tables. The waitress came over and brought a clean towel to wipe the table. She had a sweet smile on her face, one that even being on her feet for the whole day couldn’t erase. The lady noticed that the waitress was nearly eight months pregnant, but she never let the strain and aches change her attitude.  She wondered how someone who had so little could be so giving to a stranger. Then she remembered Bryan.

After the lady finished her meal, she paid with a hundred-dollar bill. The waitress quickly went to get change for her money, but the old lady had slipped right out the door, by the time she came back to her table.  The waitress wondered where the lady could have gone. Then she saw something written on the napkin. There were tears in her eyes when she read what the lady wrote: “You don’t owe me anything. I have been there too. Somebody once helped me out, the way I’m helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here is what you do: “Do not let this chain of love end with you.”  Under the napkin was four more $100.

Well, there were tables to clear, sugar bowls to fill, and people to serve, but the waitress made it through. That night when she got home from work and climbed into bed tired, she was thinking about the money and what the lady had written. How could the lady have known how much she and her husband needed it? With the baby due next month, it was going to be hard with not enough money. She knew how worried her husband was, and as he lay sleeping next to her, she gave him a soft kiss and whispered softly, “Everything’s going to be all right. I love you, Bryan Anderson.”

There is an old saying, “WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND.” Let this divine light shine on all of us. God works in mysterious ways and sometimes puts people in our lives for a reason. Even the strongest hands can lose their grip, the greatest of minds can become cloudy, and the biggest of hearts can break. SO LEARN TO BE KIND AND GENEROUS TOWARDS WHOEVER YOU MEET IN YOUR LIFE.

Through Love………..

Through Love

Bitter things seem sweeter

Like a box of sugar candies

Tasting like love divine

Through Love

Dregs taste like pure fresh wine

Crushed from bloodshot cherries

Meant to be had with fun and frolic

Through Love

Hatred seems to vanish with the blues

As happiness and joy walks hand in hand

Opening doors to smiles of delight

Through love

Pains are as healing balms

Like a comforting soft pillow

To be forgotten as a mystical dream

Through love

Thorns too become a bouquet of roses

Wrapping us in her gentle petals

Softly swaying upon loves tender moment

Through Love

One blossoms in the hearts splendid glory

As beautiful heavenly beings

Dancing among the magical mists……………………

Walking……….

Walking is the best Exercise. It has some great qualities:

Walk Away from arguments that lead you to nowhere but anger and stress you out for no rhyme or reason.

Walk Away from people who deliberately put you down and insult you or throw words of hatred at you. They will never understand your feelings.

Walk Away from the practice of pleasing people who choose to never see your worth. You have not come here to please each and everyone. Learn how to say ‘No’ otherwise they will sap you of all your energies.

Walk Away from any thought that undermines your peace of mind. Do not fall into a trap of arguments and unnecessary fights and tiffs, it will drain you completely.

Walk Away from judgmental people, they do not know the struggle you are facing and what you have been through. They only know how to sneer at you and put you down whenever possible.

Walk Away from your mistakes and fears, they do not determine your fate. We all make mistakes in life. Do not ponder over it. Let Go and be happy.

The more you Walk Away from things that poison your soul, the happier your life would be. Gift yourself A Walk Towards Happiness. All know the Way, but few actually Walk It.

Few Short Stories………

TOTAL SURRENDER:

A person started to walk on a rope tied between two tall towers at several hundred feet above the ground. He is slowly walking balancing a long stick in his hands. He has his son sitting on his shoulders.  Everyone down were watching him in bated breath and were tensed beyond words. Some were already praying in murmurs. He slowly reached the second tower. Everyone clapped, whistled and welcomed him with utter delight. Afterwards, they shook hands and took selfies with him.

He then asked the crowd, “Do you all think I can walk back on the same rope now from this side to that side?” Crowd shouted, “Yes, Yes, you can.” “Do you trust me” he asked? They said, “Yes, yes we are ready to bet on you.  He said okay, and then asked the crowd, “Can anyone of you sit on my shoulder, I will take you to the other side safely”. There was pin drop silence and everyone became quiet. No one could say anything but stared at the man dumbfounded and some just walked off.

Belief is very different compared to Trust. For Trust you need total surrender. There is no question of ifs and buts. It is to go head long and take the plunge whatever the consequences.  This is what we all are lacking towards God in today’s world. We believe in God; we have utmost faith in Him but we don’t trust Him with ourselves.

GIVE WHILE YOU ARE LIVING:

A rich Goan landlord once asked his parish priest: “Why does everybody call me stingy when everyone knows that when I die I will leave everything I have to this church?” The priest answered, “There once was a pig and a cow in this village. The pig was unpopular and the cow was loved by all in the village.  This puzzled the pig.”

The pig said to the cow, “People speak so warmly of your good nature and your helpful attitude.  They think you are very generous because each day you give them milk, butter and cheese. But what about me? I give them everything I have. I give them the famous Goa sausages, bacon and ham. I also provide ingredients for mouth-watering sorpotel. Yet no one likes me. Why is that?”

The priest then told the man and continued on this story, “Do you know what the cow answered? The Cow said, “Perhaps it is because I give while I am still living.” The rich man understood the meaning behind this message and gave whatever he had to the needy and never looked back.

Give whenever you can there is nothing that we are taking with us. Seeing the joy on their faces makes you feel satisfied beyond measure. Be Selfless at all times.

NEVER ASK “WHY?” TO THE CREATOR:

Sometimes some things are written on your fate.  No matter how hard you may try to change them, they never change. The crow and the parrot were both created ugly.  But the parrot protested to its Creator and was made beautiful. However, the crow remained content with the will of its Creator and remained ugly. No human was ready to keep him in their house as a pet. Today the parrot with its beautiful myriad colours is in the cage where his freedom is curtailed and the crow flies free as he wishes.

Behind each and every incident there is an exquisite wisdom that maybe you will never understand it therefore, never ask “Why?” to the Creator. He knows best and has chalked out plans for each and every one in life. Do not crib and cry, “Why Me.” He knows what he is doing. Enjoy his creation and Love Life.

Sword of Love………….

My Dear Soul!

If only you would love to let, go

Of your unwanted fears and anxieties

Pulling you to the depths of despair

Cutting you like a Sword in half

And You, My poor ravaged Soul

Am feeling so sad seeing you like this

Left bleeding and dying on the floor

Edge this Egoist madness

Out of the window, this very moment

Life is so short My Dear Soul!

To cry and writhe in despair

Clothe yourself entirely

In my Sword of Love

Welcome gentle steps of ecstasy

As little rhythms of shyness

Fight your own battles with the heart of a Lion

Holding only the Sword of Love

And the valor in your eyes

Let our Dear God enter your core

Love would heal the Sword’s fury

For that I am pretty sure

My Dear Soul!
