Jumping Jumping on the Mattress
Jumping Jumping on the mattress
Hitting Hitting getting hit by the pillow
Going Going around the house
Playing Playing hide & seek
Enjoying Enjoying holidays with siblings
Having Having no past no future
Laughing Laughing stomach full Now
Hahaha! Hahaha!! Hahaha!!!
Children always live in the Now. They exhibit inner joy and bliss. As time passes by they get attached to all sorts of relationships and worldly matters. Thereby creating a trivial past and dreaming of a bombastic future. So, as man grows he slowly forgets living in the Now.
I personally feel animals and birds live in the Now and therefore have formed a unique life way of living. It seems they enjoy life more than we humans.
Hello! Lately I have bought a new mattress, thinking that it would give some comfort to my back. It seems to say to me, to live in the Now.
Remembering childhood days of jumping, hitting and playing on mattress made me write this post. Hope you All enjoy as much as we did…..
“When Known Hearts Meet”
“When known hearts meet after a long, long time, the joy derived is so much; even the ocean falls short”
The other day with my family I had a chance to meet or rather made it a point to meet, which was pending since long. We had number of times missed the opportunity to meet these loved ones, who were an extended family.
Over a period of time, I should say almost four decades of friendship and sharing of family values. We till today cherish the days we shared along with the elders in the family. Both being business families did have their ups and downs, so the family moved to a nearby town and have been living there.
My father was a favourite of them and always brought joy to everyone. They had loved his company and he being a foodie was served delicious food by them. They even invited us all for dinners, breakfast or lunch. They in return were invited by us and that was real joy. We all used to go on short trips and picnics.
After they moved from our town it so happened that they lost the elders and we our father. Now, except our mother and their mother all elders have gone.
When we went to their home we were overwhelmingly received and served with Bhel Puri and kachoris ( Indian Snacks) we spent about 4 hours with them, while leaving we did all the pranams, namasthe while hugging my wife our old aunty expressed “Hum itna khush hain ke samundar bhi kam padta hai” ( “it is so joyful that even the ocean falls short”) I was moved by the words and today I present it as Quote for you all.
A Big Lie
“A ‘Big Lie’ uttered, demands in response an expertise to utter several more.
Some try to expertise and keep enjoying the act, ultimately fall prey to the lie”
On the eve of Valentine 14th Feb I post this to dedicate “All Lovers” of this world of Past, Present and Future
“Moments are for a few moments and are time bound; they have their beginnings to endings, they are to be worth. We are anxious of their coming and cherish their going . How long, far, near and great are they worth. They bring joy”.
These words are in ‘Quotable Quotes’ form.
The same words in a ‘Poetic’ form
Moments are for moments
Time bound are they
Own their beginnings till endings
Anxious of their coming
Cherish of their going
Moments are worth
Hello! You Both!! Mind! & Body!
My salutations to your friendship
you both, have been such good friends
anybody, for that matter would appreciate and applause.
Having been my guests all through
been so close to each other
you act, like as if you are the big hosts.
You work by the seconds
make know of your after effects to one another
bring happiness and sorrow to each other.
You are more concerned, of your own self
having to reside in me,
shown all causations of pleasure and pain.
All through you have been doing and acting your ways
having not cared, what shall be
repercussions on me.
Over a period, you caused stress, strain
invite certain diseases and mental problems
aren’t you not fed up?
Now, I have come to know, that
I have been taken for a ride by you both
this will not do, henceforth.
I now want, you to listen to me
you have not heard of Meditation and Mindfulness
I now teach you, some lessons on that.
I pray, you obey me
as I am giving you both the conducive atmosphere
you needn’t worry, I go by your ways to mend.
Oh! Body, you are constructed of the five great elements
you mind, you are made of space and wind
therefore, are such your acts.
In the present moment
this is what you are to do
keep away past, think not of future, strictly.
Enough of wandering
in the mundane world
find solitude, that shall bring joy.
Realise! Who you are
you are not what you were a second back
you inhere within me.
Therefore, practice the methods of meditation
mindfulness is what shall bring you into the path
freedom is what shall be achieved.
I am the source of your existence
derivation of joy is from me
I am the bliss.
After death I get rid of you,
shall leave the planet
who knows, if I shall get you both back.
Now is the time to know,
cleanse, yourselves to capture back
the kingdom of silence, in which is all and complete.
Mind karma, gather blessings, seek the Master
change is what is needed, balance and transform
Hello! You Both!! Mind! & Body!
State of Meditation
Meditation in situ
Eyelids drop curtain
Close screen to mundane world
Ears bidding goodbye to outer sounds
Sounds of silence bloom
Bodily attached thoughts renounce
Habitation of bones, blood and nerves cast away
Skin starts sensualising astronomical cool
Terrestrial body consign to oblivion
Realms of inner being manifest
Ubiquity of bliss felt
Self experiences expansion
Encounters universal presence
Gradually eyes open
World offers to view
Poetry of creation
Sparkle in eyes result
Mark two red wine glasses
Awareness of joy fails to resign
Reminiscences of worldly ties attract
Mind dwindles in dilemma
Forces into the routine
Habitual actions hence take stroll
Nevertheless mind hankers to
Meditate again and again
Retrospective effects compose
Afterthoughts full of joy
Elated mind permits to act
Darkless light offers bliss
Heart centre blossoms
Personality elevates to spiritual vibrations
Knower of knowledge becomes known
Exaltation to formless state
Showers of benedictions occur
Being silent witness to inner and outer worlds
Thus – the Growth, to receive reverence
One of the One merges into – ‘the One’
I am pleased to share the ‘State of Meditation’ in my own words; I hope you receive it in its right perspective. There are various ways to meditate of which I would not want to elaborate. But I have presented in three classifications, the first one to know how it is and how it influences on the one who meditates, the second is the feeling as to how it influences even after finishing meditation, the third is what actually happens when we meditate regularly and what the results of Meditation actually should be.
I wish and feel, fresh Meditators or those who have begun or who are adepts would take the Best use of the lines as they are the study and years of practice. Ultimately it is that goal to be achieved. Thanks
I have posted this on the eve of New Year 2018 –the 1st Janu 2018.
I WISH ALL MY READERS A VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR
