Courage


 

When people are falling like nine-pins around ye unsung

Muster courage to hold on till the last drop

For somebody is required to pick up the fallen pals.

 

When ye fathom you are right

But hard-boiled truth dawns, you are otherwise

Accept that truth with courage

And put your ‘right’ to tests

Thou not stand on ceremony

It will inevitably isolate you from the rests.

 

When encircled in the web of uncertainty

In us, a part of overall order of things

Have courage to accept to accept the good words

Of anybody betwixt

Embrace that rightly to free thee out of a fix.

 

Whilst travelling in unknown land

Finding your fellow being in tattered attire and in pain

Muster courage to know his state

Mitigate his suffering – if you can

If not, few kind words will cost though nothing.

 

O, Lord, shower thy blessings, we are in dire need

So that we are courageous to blot out

Disparity from humanity based on caste, colour and creed.

Musings

  • How you can make difference in your outlook on life.  One can make any change in oneself if he/she has will to do that. Age does not factor in this. This positive change can be affected anywhere, anytime and at every moment of one’s life. If you feel down at one point in time, it hardly means that that feeling cannot be converted into something which can be rather helpful ultimately. Courage and fortitude to pull on under any circumstances will help. It takes two to make perceptible difference. That change cannot be made in isolation. It should always be remembered that nothing is acquired without putting your personal efforts. If at all you acquire something easily, surely, it will go quite easily. Rather than losing your bearings in the initial stages itself. Pet up, pull up your socks. You may be in for many ups and downs. Face them squarely without any perturbation with hundred percent commitments. That will make much difference in the outcome.

For the day, these are sufficient, let us wait and see how Lord guides us on the path of positivity, a step more near to Him and yourself.

Musings

  • Make a Difference in Small Ways. We can contribute in small ways to help others whenever they need our help. It may be that your timely help may bring perceptible difference to that individual. It is better to help others by way of imparting knowledge and education which may have a lasting impact on the other party.
  • Charity is good but do it Without Making a Show of it. It has been experienced that some people exhibit magnanimity on the surface so that the people may have good opinion about them. That attitude may make them earn a few brownies but ultimately reality will come to fore and their true colour is revealed. It has also been seen that some people take recourse to taking strict action on others, like terminating others’ services without thinking what consequences that action of theirs will have on the other party and without giving any chance to them to explain what and why he/she behaved in such a manner.  
    • It is here and now which counts and not then and there. Your present action and reaction is key, more important than what you had taken yesterday or would be taking tomorrow. Adopt positivity in your action, taking into account that your actions do not impact others in any way. If it does, you may try to devise alternatives for your actions. A small gain with no harm to others in the process is better than huge gains for you but earned at the cost of others.
    • For the day, these are sufficient, let us wait and see how Lord guides us on the path of positivity, a step more near to Him and yourself.

PRAYER


 

The prayer fine-tunes the baser thoughts,

Into thought sublime with bountiful blessings of our Lord,

And creates restful alertness,

To our body and mind in its eternal stillness,

And profoundly balances mind, body and spirit.

 

When fear of unpredictable future and dead past stalks at every step in life,

The Omnipotent Spirit, dwelling in thee will generate will

And dissipates ominous fear and replaces with courage to face thy today.

 

When invaded by days of disharmony

Then Divine Grace bestows harmony

And harmonies our life to face it squarely.

 

When the wells of alternatives have parched

Deep prayer will give forth sweet joyous opportune moments

And floodgates of alternatives will open ajar.

 

When life is bereft of any hope

Remember Him sincerely and He provides hope

For every hopeless hope.

 

When calmness and wisdom replace nervous unease

His Omnipresence will transform the same with ease

And fragrance of calmness and sagacity y will prevail in ample measure.

 

When engulfed with restless thoughts with no perceptible solution

With His grace presence

Solutions will be aplenty.

 

My earnest prayer to the Lord Supreme

Always dwell in us and guide us every time

To remove hunger, want and misery from our midst

So that our country’s today is safe & sound for better tomorrow.

Hurt

 

Stumble by accident or by design,

Inflict hurt and consequent pain,

Ointment of time heals the transient wound,

But leaves a visible scar,

A silent spectator of incident in the past,

This scar is a boon, as it has its use in identification,

For filling up columns in application,

When your soft emotions are punctured,

By the pricking of unsolicited taunt or when ditched,

By the ones you hold dearest,

It causes overwhelming internal tremors,

With its predictable epicenter at the centre of the heart,

After effects of that are awesome – a heart filled with hurt,

Pain of which is seemingly unforgettable,

And dies only with the death of start crossed victim,

Your feeling get toss-over by the whims,

Of those you hold very closely to your bosom,

The prevalent hurt has anger as manifestation,

Which turns into depletion of energy and depression,

When redirected inwards in frustration.

Some repulse the blistering attack on their impulses,

By paying the donor in the same coin,

hurt-proof, some become, by the consistency of

Hurt they experience,

That the perpetrators themselves become shame-proof,

Of their futility of using their blunted weapon.

Eternal sleep


After our earthy sojourn,

We mortals traverse to a world unknown,

Where to – guesswork abounds,

Some think, few are welcomed to enchanting Heaven,

And the others to burning ‘ghats’ of hell are thrown,

Depending solely on earthy deeds or misdeeds,

Ledger of which are assiduously maintained and screened.

Death is inevitable, then why gets afraid?

Death  is a stark-reality, then why get sad?

When parting with our kins so dear, finally,

During life too, we experience death in small ways routinely,

The one who has seen the dawn of the day,

Will surely see the dusk of the day.

A mistaken sense of pride,

Egged on by mistaken sense of permanence of life,

Spurs us to cling to this life so tight,

That sometimes, we forget the imminence of our end.

Which is so near but seemingly so far away from sight.

Earthy inning is quite alluring,

Parting with worldly possessions so paining,

Yet, in life, we ought to adopt righteous course,

Why fear, accept the change of garb with courage and without remorse,

A life filled with inner freedom is helpful,

Engrave this idea, eternal sleep is sacred and peaceful

Welcome the eternal sleep when it comes naturally with

open hands,

For this end is not the end of cycle of life and earth,

But a continuity of a play played by earthlings,

And supervised from His Heavenly abode by Supremebeing;

the one and the only one by whatever name you mention him.

Drunk

Drinking, when in excess,
Is a nauseating tendency,
Produces nausea and what it entails,
Imbalances the body equilibrium,
And in the process, life’s rhythm,
Takes you away from yourself,
Brings in its wake thoughts disgusting
Finally a feeling steeped in hurting.

One drunk with pride,
Stands on the legs of show,
Showcases his possessions aimlessly,
And his actions ruthless,
Mind brimming with conceit,
Never flinching in practising deceit,
A peg full of pride,
Mesmerizes thee immensely,
Making the a frog in the well,
Frolicking in the area confined,
Taking you away from your own being.

A person drunk with our Creator’s Love,
Has magnetism to attract all fine things,
Fine-tunes our inner thinking in sufficient measure,
This Drinking, is the source of compassion and
Love emanates from our daily life,
Making the environs refreshingly tranquil,
This peg of drinking provisioned free although,
Is more intoxicating than numberless drinks one quaffs,
O, Almighty make us drunk with your
Peg, brimming with love of Your’s aplenty.
