Ahimsa -- non-violence

Man is intrinsically non-violent. All violence is acquired from outside. Therefore, all efforts at being non-violent is a means of throwing out the sickness that has come from without. From within, our health reposes in non-violence, Ahimsa. Ahimsa is the greatest requirement and the immediate... Sign in to see full entry.

The other dimension of Love

I was absolutely delighted to find the sense of ecstasy in one of John Donne’s poem by the same title. It is, he explains, the realization through a temporary disassociation of the soul from the body and what all happens thereafter that ecstasy descends. Their bodies are the spheres in which their...

Music Divine Unforgettable

Alongside a grove of Norfolk Island pine Grows a solitary rosebush steady and fine Delicate liana creeper clings with an unrelated Oak trunk; weren’t they friends or lovers long-lost, reunited! Vast Himalayan mountain range overcast, lies waste The endless bounds of the Great Saharan... chaste Hide... Sign in to see full entry.

Doubt the Original Sin

Seeded in doubt we remain which is always about The good and never about the bad, and none a non-devout! When I am happy it’s too good to be true; come bad But do I ever ask am I unhappy, am I really sad? Happiness, the stranger that rarely visits human soil Joy and bliss! Oh, they're plain words of...

Non-Existent Objectives?

I was reading about Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin and Leon Trotsky. All were revolutionaries, but of different kinds: Marx, non-violent; Stalin, violent; and Trotsky, violence personified. The Marxist revolution thrived under the umbrella of the Gainer Theory which says: Either you gain something or you... Sign in to see full entry.

How we distanced God

When God created man, Man was truly innocent; he could go, Meet, talk, walk and breathe With God, flow with Him In His own flow …the bond was such! And probably, for God, a little too much! Man would pray for God to come, When He came, he’d whine “Oh, you came so early? Or, why so late! You should... Sign in to see full entry.

Dialogue with my self

Tethered I was in a strange kingdom Of the obscure Somber A hearty welcome greeted me from the Recesses of a dank cave Cold and dark … ” Lemme outta here!” Oh no, said the voice “Remember The last November you came and I tried to show you your enclave?” “Yes, perforce I was wrapped in layers Of...

God will either catch you or teach you to fly

A forwarded mail I thought I would like to share. It's beautiful. The man slowly looked up. This was a woman clearly accustomed to the finer things of life. Her coat was new. She looked like she had never missed a meal in her life. His first thought was that she wanted to make fun of him, like so... Sign in to see full entry.

Mystic Music of Existence

I see with wondrous eyes the dance Of life and death going on unceasingly Without a pause, for there are no full stops or commas In the cosmic cycle of Nature; it is always a continuous “IS” A yellowed leaf falls, detached from the tree, silently Without leaving a tear or a scar behind; it happily...
