O what a pity!

This poem is so like the Almighty speaking of how the human mind is and trying to make him aware of where it’s heading to. Lovingly it is trying to convince and give him a solution.  

“O what a pity”


O what a pity!
The mind is fixated on the fleeting,

And aiming for the infinite.

Why so it is troubled much

Living in the finite? 
O what a pity!

The mind is not in the moment,

Stuck in the past,

Person, judgement, object, event and so many reasons.

Stuck in the material and 

craving for comfort

How shall I tell what is the real comfort?
Is it in the bed,

Or the television, 

Or the music, 

Or the season? 

True comfort ain’t in a single thing

O What a pity!
How do i describe 

Where I am? How do i look?

Where can I be found?

I am not 

in the idols,

In the altar,

In the photos you swear.

I am in the heart of the One,

That eternally say the prayer.
I am the kindness,

I am the justice,

I am the love 

That pours in infinite ways,

I am the breeze,

I am the light,

I am the water that quenches your thirst. 
I am where you won’t see me.

I am everywhere.

Open your eyes and witness me.

Wake up from the pity 

And walk with dignity. 
Don’t beg for little,

Ask for more,

Not by greed 

But humility and gratitude galore. 

Ask for the need,

and to serve the needy.

Ask for the good 

and to give back it in heaps and bounty. 

Ask for the wealth 

and to charity.

Ask for everything

and a mind in sanity. 
O what a pity 

Man asks for little,

It craves for the fleeting

And complains me befitting. 

Do not O mortal, 

Think I shall grant only what you seek.

Look beyond and Divine is within your reach. 
O what a pity!

It fails to see,

actions has equal reaction.

your inaction has equal reaction. 

Do not worry still o mortal.

Do not grieve.

Pray and you shall receive ! 

Stay Strong!

Stay Strong

Stay Strong ๐Ÿ˜€

So here is a poem just composed ๐Ÿ™‚

Stay Strong!
Let nothing hamper you,
right or wrong.

The body might say,
you are gone.

The mind might compare
and sing a whining song.

The intellect will question
& whack you left & right.

The memory might drown you,
in moments you don’t want to treasure.

The ego wil hurt
and bruise and scar.

Yet my dear, You don’t get with it along.
Witness the moment & sing the happy song.

The time is now,
don’t drag yourself into why and how!

Watch the future and it’s possibilities
and let nothing doubt your capabilities!

I wish these words make you sail..
From the words & situations which carried you away!

I wish you best now and then,
I Pray you stay strong, time & again ๐Ÿ™‚

PS : This was composed by me thinking of a dear friend of mine ๐Ÿ™‚

How powerful can the mind be?

Most of us encounter so many events during the whole day.
Unconsciously our mind gathers data from around.. what people say,ย  what you see,ย  you hear.. There is a constant analysis automatically happening based on the data you perceive from things around you..

Power of the Mind
This wholesome set of data build what you call a judgement inside the mind..
A quick equation is made referring to the sea of information that the mind has stored through present day experiences.
You won’t even realise and you will find yourself at times defending your own subconscious judgements..
It is only when someone point it out that you will realise that it exists.
Does this happen with you too?

While it’s impossible to stop the data gathering and unconscious judgement. We can definitely train our mind to not get indulged in that too often..
Yes, you could gradually train our mind to stop storing things that make no sense.
When and how would that be possible?
That, your mind will learn to drop indulging in things that don’t matter but become a part of our life?

By constantly building our priorities in life.
Remember the phrase – Mind your own business.
Easier said than done. How do we mind our own business? With almost no control over how the mind will think next?
Is it possible to tame the mind? To alter it’s thought process?
Let’s dive in and see..
We all rest but does our mind rest?
We all sleep but unfortunately like Internet browsers we don’t have a manual option to clear the browsing history, to clear the cache .. Like the browser we move through different thoughts and more often store some data from every thought. This data stays and stays. There is no way it is erased. We never do anything for it!
We never clear our minds with these unconscious data collected..

Meditation for Wellness
When we meditate, it is very much possible to allows these thoughts to clear your subconscious mind.
As one progresses in meditation one will realise the power of it.ย  Meditation empowers the mind to process and keep things that matter. To learn from the good and not hold on bad for long.

One question might arise that what if the event has something really good to offer.. In that case you definitely don’t drown in Good memories either ๐Ÿ™‚

As one learns to consciously keep the good, it adapts itself to process & keep things clear.ย  The right priorities happen. The unconscious indulgence stops gradually.
One then slowly learns to focus on what’s important.ย  Your ability to give back increases. When the garbage in the mind is removed.. YOU find clarity.. YOU find purpose and you will naturally take responsibility.. Responsibility of your own mind, body, family and society.
Choices happen instantly. You give as Good as you get.

All the issues arise at some stage in the mind and reflect on the body-behaviour aspect and soon tend to define your character for others.
The only way to reflect good is to work on the inside.. The mind! A clear mind soon takes charge of everything. It works to keep you best and does the same for things around!

We all this have one opportunity now..
