“God for His service needeth not proud work of human skill;
They please Him best who labour most in peace to do His will.” (Wordsworth, “The Poet’s Dream”)
Majestic art thou, O Mighty One!
Towering above all ……man , animal and bird
Fearless and sure-footed
Yet thy eyes are big pools of innocence and divinity!
Albeit thy build be huge, thou art yet herbivorous!
Harming others is not thy nature
For only in fear and self-defence dost thou strike!
Or else “live and let live” is thy policy!
Thy gait has such unparalelled grandeur
That no catwalk can ever outdo!
When thou trumpets, it echoes even in the netherworld
And so does it reverberate in the open skies!
A king amongst kings art Thou, O Mighty Elephant!
A blessing to this planet
I pray to the Lord to give me that strength and courage
That thou has been gifted with!
May Thou be blessed with a carefree life
Free from fear of exploitation
Free from fear of extinction
Free from fear of being driven out of your habitat!
Live well! Live in freedom! Live in peace!
Live in celebration of life
May He protect Thee as a mother dost her child!
Amen! Amen! Amen!
Hey! Look! What a lovely sight up above!
The sky beckons to your soul with its multiple hues
Golden, orange, blue and white and silver-grey
He seems eager to meet the Earth on the horizon!
He will merge into Her in all His Glory
And find solace in Her dark tresses
To rise again in His Glorious Form
Spread Light and Joy as he gallops along in his Silver Chariot!
It’s Sunset Glory! It’s the Greatest Love Story
The love of God for all His Creation
Earth and Sky, Moon and the Stars
Man and Beast, Bird and Fish,Trees and Flowers!
What is there on this planet not embraced in His Loving Fold
The Sun rises in glory and sets in glory
To repeat the story day-to-day, year to year, yugas to yugas
And so gives us a message!
Yes! It’s a message to man
That man passes through different phases in life
All that he sorrows over are never for ever
For they disappear in their own time as darkness or night does!
And then knowledge dawns, awareness dawns, joy dawns in life
As the day dawns and brings light to the world
Beginning of Love, Peace and Bliss…End of despair, sorrow and futile worry
It’s Sunset Glory! The Lord’s Love Story!
Whenever I am able to be just a witness and watch the antics of the mind with dispassion, all its distortions shrink back into it and do not manifest as thought, word and action.What a wonder this human mind is! But the greater wonder is The Big Mind or the Supreme Consciousness that guides ,counsels and leads the human mind all the way ,on this life-journey!
“Behind every cloud there’s a silver lining. Rightly said. For, every difficult situation paves the way for man’s evolving further to a better human being.
When clouds appear on the horizon, the Sun becomes invisible ,but it’s still there. When the clouds pour down as rain the Sun pours forth its light and the rainbow is formed.
A similar phenomenon happens in a seeker’s life when the mind is clouded by transient things such as doubt, bitterness and negative thinking. And when these clouds disappear, the mind begets its light, and spreads it all around,and,life within and without – both become colourful – like the rainbow.
