Is Your Heart Open?

to little wonders of the world? Is it open enough to appreciate the hidden beauty of the ordinary?

Or is it clamped shut in the folds of your mind – A mind that commands the heart not to be open softly in case it gets hurt. Is your mind always right in its worries and stresses,  justifications and judgments, opinions and oppressions, demands and commands that your heart forgot how to light your face?

Here is a little poem by e.e.cummings praying “May My Heart Always Be Open To Little” Words of wisdom in their utter simplicity.

My prayer offer to you all people –

“Let us not be afraid to be the fools who pull all the sky over us with one smile”

It takes fewer muscles to smile than to frown –

Keep smiling and bring a little sunshine into your part of the world.

Until next time

W.A.T.C.H Out!!!!!


 

Stopwatch

What am I asking you to watch out? Find out below.

WATCH OUT “……cautions a Parent

“WATCH IT”………warns a Friend or a Foe

“WATCH WHAT?”…………says my mind.

The cautioning of the parent is about – Words

The warning of a friend or a foe is about – Actions

The inquiry of my mind is about – Thoughts

regarding watching out my – Character

and my – Heart

So watching Words, Actions, and Thoughts will give shape to Character that oozes the Love in my Heart.

If it all starts with words,  what kind of words?

Words that are Soft, Sweet and Loving only – all the time and in all times.

For that to happen our words have to go through the following gate keepers – says  Sathya Sai Baba.  Before we say anything we should ask ourselves –

“Is this the Truth?

Will it hurt me?

Will it hurt the others?

Will it improve on silence?”

The answers will determine whether I should say anything.

Well, as there wouldn’t be much that can improve on silence, I won’t have a lot to say EVER, will I?

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, if my words are the first step in shaping my character, then I will be WATCH…ing my words.  Will you join me?

What kind of words will you use, with yourself and others – today, tomorrow and the day after?

Let me know. I am keen to hear.

With Love and Respect

**Sacred**


Sacred Geometry

There is no mundane, there is no ordinary;

There is only Sacred Extraordinary.

Sacred Living, Beautiful People;

Sacred Moments, Loving Interactions;

Sacred Breath, Broad Smiles;

Sacred Actions, Pure Heart.

Change

Selfish Careless Actions Raging with Envy and Deceit (SCARED)

into

Selfless Actions with Compassion, Respect, Empathy and Determination (SACRED)

Rearranging attitudes can be as simple as rearranging the letters and it is possible when we recognise that we may be different outwardly,  but we all are one at the core.

When ‘Life’ is a continuous flow of ‘ Unconditional Love’ for living the ordinary – ‘Scared’ transforms to “SACRED”.

Try to be compassionate

Determine to be empathetic even when justifiable judgments are piling fast at the tip of your tongue.

Respect people for who they are – not for what they do or don’t do

Be selfless – it is difficult but worth it.

Hope you sanctify your lives every moment by turning ordinary into extraordinary

Until next time

With Love and Respect
