Glory

Lord, grant me the constant sense to know goodness from folly, to always act in a way that would make my forefathers and family proud. Give me the assurance that not a moment spent in service to them and my larger world family will never be in vain. Help each one of us understand better our divine purposes and our illimitable origins. Make us physically fit, mentally alert and spiritually secure to win for ourselves a small fraction of your glory.

All this we ask in the name of Buddha, Mahomed, Jesus and Krishna.

Flower

Today I am a flower as yet unborn. Whose fragrance is still imperceptible because its buried deep in the humus below a road. I grow on a tree whose roots are yet to find purchase in the soil and whose shoots still need to find their way through a crack into the light.

Many times before has nature orchestrated my rebirth. Each time joy abounds as I break from the darkness into the light

Amen

Keep Smiling

Dear Beloved,

We live in blessed magical times. Look around and you will see the best the best of all that technology has to offer you. Look beyond the technology to see the people behind it – people like you and I – human beings – we are after all a species showing promise. We’ve been to the moon and back, but sometimes fail to look at it, speak to or encourage one another.

Now why is that? It’s simply because we fail to see a body we can relate to – another person full of dreams, ambitions and desires – never lose the human touch. At the end of the day, it’s all that we will be remembered for. Live well, laugh often and love much. Love what you do, love to talk about things that you are going to do – even if it’s trivial silly stuff. Enjoy the ride – it’s going to take you places and show you things. Open your hearts and minds to life – in the end, you will find it’s all been worth your while – every turn of phrase, every leaf and ant bite. When we were young (or sometime shortly thereafter), we discover a fire inside it. Watch it grow and win things for you for it makes it possible for you to dream of the stars and beyond. Don’t worry about up’s and down’s in life – they all serve a purpose – to just tell you what stern stuff you are made of. There are ways to get help in any situation. All it needs is a friendly smile and a “brother/sister – I’m in trouble and I need some help”. Smile from the heart and see how much people will move Heaven and Earth to make you happy again. Not everyone, not right away – that’s because we’re all caught up in our own lives – make allowances for that too – but don’t for heaven’s sake lose your positivity, your humanity or your passion.


They say that when the going gets tough the tough get going – well remember that it’s only the test of fire that makes fine steel – not the steel in weapon’s (laughs) – there’s plenty of other uses for it. Be gentle with those around you – you may not agree with the adults around you but grant them a wisdom borne out of experience – they’ve probably seen more / been more add can tell you things about yourself you never knew because they’ve watched you from the very start.
