Gentle Breeze of Daily Wisdom
To go out in the early hours of the morning
when the silent night is still sleeping in its shadow,
and to find and convince a street person
that he is not forsaken,
is the highest form of compassion.
A kind word whispered in the ear of an unfortunate person
creates radiant energy, as good as a health supplement,
in both the giver and the receiver of the whisper.
Bridges are not for burning,
but for remaining connected.
Forgiveness is the contractor who mends them.
“God is ‘nowhere’” and
“God is ‘now here’” there is only a space,
but a transformation from
illusion to enlightenment.
Spirituality is an experience of self-observation.
Self-observation leads to the realization that
the architect of my world, my universe,
is seated inside me.
One that is not enlightened speaks to God
One that is enlightened speaks with God
Behind every event
the intelligent Higher Force
has a purposeful hand,
and to credit it with
all that happens in my world
is the beginning of true emancipation –
the beginning of the need not to possess anything,
or be anyone other than my true self.
Being possessed by a truly mighty purpose,
you experience a quantum leap.
Hitherto undiscovered talents replace
the senses of the mind and thoughts,
and give birth to a mighty being.
You become your purpose!
In the light of the Higher Path of
universal love, compassion, tolerance,
charity and understanding,
any religious path will become secondary.
In the game of life we may
appear to be trekking different paths,
but no matter where we are heading,
we will always take a little of
each other everywhere we go.
This is connectedness.
You want to see the forest,
but the trees get in the way.
Step out of the illusion
and see from afar.
Step out of yourself and
reveal the egoistic self.
Decide to be happy today,
to live with what is yours –
your family, your friends,
your work, your purpose.
If you can’t have what you like,
maybe you can like what you have.
To heal yourself commune with yourself.
Chant in your heart a joyful life-affirming
mantra to say you are already healed.
He who succeeds all the time has succeeded at nothing,
for he has no failure to measure it against.
The glory of success can only be sensed
in the clinging gloom of failure.
To define is to confine.
In confinement there is captivity.
In captivity, there is no freedom.
Where there is no freedom,
there is no growth.
