Not so common . . .

Standard

Brooding eyes ponder

The rare sight of curled up lips,

A tale of extinct.

 

 

 

P.S. There are times when I wonder – Oh is this how I look as I smile!!

Let us make smile a little more common.

Do smile !!

Mystery

Stagnant

Standard

Stink of water clogged

irks nose and a happy tongue

Fruits of rooted soul

 …  …  …

Dynamics of life

Stagnant water or still trees

Perspective matters

 

There is a teacher I remember who asked us to adopt change. She provided her stance with a comparison done to stagnant water and asked if we being hesitant to change, would like to stink for sticking to one situation, one manner or one fashion of living.

I wondered why to compare with still water, why not with magnificent trees standing tall for years and years to come. Such kind beings to bear sweet fruits of generosity!!

It is not necessary for a solution, an advice to work for all of us.

We all have varied needs.

Do not let them make you feel any less.

Embrace yourself!

Labelled

Standard

Be a man, revered

Not the rank you proudly hold,

Work speaks for itself

 

Why at times we have to come up with sugar coated words, and hide our disappointment and annoyance at them? Is it us being sophisticated and civilized, not to say a word before them, but to bitch at their back?

I have seen people holding an important position, adulated and bootlicked which is mistaken for respect and reverence.

But are they aware that it is not their character or work which is cherished but the fear of their position? I wonder if demeaning nature of power and post can be fathomed by the preachers of it.

What would you prefer? Being just labelled or respected?

Label adds to the value; however, I wonder if one short of values can actually be at peace with just one labelled value?

Integrity and value is something that unites the materialistic you and the spiritual you.

Who doesn’t wish for a peaceful sleep?

Integrity is a preference given to you to be yourself when everyone wishes to be someone else.

Love what you do and do it with an honor for self.

Save yourself.

❤ ❤ ❤
