The Lonely Man of the Night………..

Image result for image of a lonely man of the night

He was a lonely man of the night

A seal of silence upon his lips

He was left lonely and sad

Had lost hope in everybody

Trust, he did not anyone

He was the deserted one

The one without a tomorrow

He was a lonely man of the night

A seal of silence upon his lips

A hundred stories left untold upon his lips

He left the unwelcome city

Without thinking about tomorrows

He was the passenger of the nights

With no baggage in sight

He was a lonely man of the night

A seal of silence upon his lips

Alone and lonely, bitter and infamous

No one seemed interested to talk to Him

He slept in the open streets or gutters

There was no soul ready to listen to Him

A hundred stories left untold upon his lips………….

Young v/s Old………..

When I was young, I was worried about my pimples least someone found me ugly but now when I am old, I am worried about my wrinkles.

When I was young, I was waiting to hold his hand, but when I am old now, I am waiting for someone to hold my hand.

When I was young, I hated when I was counselled by my parents, when I am old there is no one around me to talk. I have become completely alone.

When I was young, I admired beautiful things around me, when I am old, I see beauty in things around me but there is no one I can share with.

When I was young, I celebrated the moments with friends and family, when I am old, I am cherishing my memories that were so beautiful.

When I was young, I found it difficult to wake up in the morning with having late nights, when I am old, I am finding it difficult to catch up on my sleep.

At extreme stages of our life, we worry but we do not realize, life needs to be experienced. It doesn’t matter whether we are young or old, life needs to be lived with love and compassion.

We learn something from everyone who passes through our lives, some lessons are painful, some are painless but deep down all are precious. Enjoy young and old age as it comes in your lives.

Light the Lamp Inside You………

One-night Shankaracharya was desperately searching for something on the street outside his small hut.  When his pupil returned from his errand, he saw this and curiously asked the Master, “Acharya, what are you looking for here on the street at this hour?” Shankaracharya replied, “I lost my needle, I am looking for it.”  The pupil joined him in the search, but after searching for a while, he asked, “Can you try and recollect where you might have dropped it?”

Shankaracharya said, “Of course, I remember. I dropped it near the bed in the hut.”  The pupil, utterly astonished at the strange answer, said, “Acharya, you say you lost it inside the house, then why are we looking for it outside?”  Shankaracharya innocently replied, “There is no oil left in the lamp, so it is pitch dark inside the house. Hence, I thought of searching for it outside, since there is enough street light here.”

While holding back his laugh, the pupil said, “If you lost your needle inside the house, how could you even expect to find it outside?”  Shankaracharya simply smiled back at the pupil and said, “Isn’t that what we do? We run to far away temples and walk up mountains to search for what we have lost inside ourselves.  We also go searching for peace and happiness to some far off places or to Spiritual Masters who we think can give us what we all are wanting desperately. We are always seeking outside what we have lost inside us. Why? Just because it is pitch dark inside of us.  Silly, are we not?”

He then further said, “Light the lamp inside you and find your lost treasure right there in. Once you will find the light inside you, then you will realize who you were, are and always will be Eternal and Formless. There is nothing else to find but your True Self.”

What an amazing thing a Book is………..

Image result for images of a book

It’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles.

But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe someone dead for thousands of years across the millennia. One can write their heart out and make it into chapters and chapters that spills out on a blank sheet of paper.

An author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head directly to you through his words and at times you are so engrossed in reading his interesting, mysterious or ghostly writings that you would not want to put down the book even for a second, as his words have totally captivated your soul. Time stops completely.

A book need not generally be a bestseller. It has simply to appeal to the reader. Creativity is an art which is found in human beings and they can go to any imaginative levels to showcase their beautiful and amazing work in the form of Books.

Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people from all over the Globe who never knew each other, citizens of distant historical epochs and fantastic places all around the world that are so well illustrated in a Book.

Libraries all over the World are stacked with thousands of books written by authors for different genres. It’s a joy to be around books.  One can even sip their hot coffee or tea with a refreshing croissant, or a muffin at a small corner table with a book of their choice.

Books can never make you feel lonely. They are your best friends at times and are a part and parcel of our lives. They can guide you towards a right path and talk to you in silent words. They can even make you cry bitter tears or laugh like a crazy idiot at their jokes.

Books break the shackles of time and space.  They bring in stories of love, kindness, joy, morals, ethics, or even great historical stories on wars, hatred, fighting or bloodshed but overall a Book is proof that Humans are capable of Working Magic with their imaginative mind.

Bring Love Into our Homes – by Mother Teresa……

Image result for images of mother teresa

It is so easy to love

The people from a great distance

Who we hardly meet once in a way

But it is not always difficult

to love those close to us

whose love is ever so dear

calling us to be near and not fear

It is easier to give a cup of rice

to relieve hunger that eats you up

Or clothes that lie wasted

To the needy who wants them most

Than to let go the loneliness and pain

Of someone detested in our own homes

Bring love and cheerfulness into your home

For this is where our love

For each other must begin

And that is only in our Hearts

That is home to all of us……….

When a newspaper reporter interviewed a farmer who grew Award-Winning maize each year and entered his maize in the Agricultural show, it was revealed that the farmer shared his seed with his neighbours. Amazed, the reporter asked, “how can you afford to share your best seed with your neighbours when they are entering their maize in competition with yours each year?’

The farmer smiled knowingly and explained in a polite manner, “The wind picks up pollen from the ripening maize and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbours grow inferior maize, Cross-Pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my maize. If I am to grow good maize, I must help my neighbours grow a good crop too.”

So it is with our lives. Those who want to live meaningfully and well, we must help enrich the lives of others. Why must we be selfish and not let others grow and be happy. For the value of a life, is always measured by the lives it touches and those who choose to be happy, must try to help others find happiness too. The welfare of each one is bound up with the welfare of all.

Call it power of collectivity or a principle of success or Call it a law of life. The fact remains, ‘None of us truly wins, until we all win’. Know this secret as you grow older! In life, when you help the people around you to be good, you surely become the best. REAL HAPPINESS COMES WHEN YOU MAKE OTHERS HAPPY.
