The first thought that comes to me is - there is so much more that I can do. There is so much more love that I can put. I am thinking of the moments when I was welcomed with a big heart by known and unknown friends. I feel so encouraged to create a warm space in my heart and home.

Why Do Social Work?, by J. Krishnamurti

 The seed questions for reflection are my questions. In fact a lot of external actions for me are restricted because of lack of clarity inside. If I sit is silence I get overwhelmed by the fact that I am sitting in silence. If I think and do something good, I count on my credits. So I try and not acknowledge it, but that is also not facing it. How can it happen effortlessly and be a way of life (very simple, which is not a big deal, but a very normal way of life which in itself takes us forward in the journey and the knowledge of it doesn't overwhelm).

Untested Simplicity of the Villages, by Ram Dass

This has exactly been my experience and had shared in one of the Wednesday meditations. I stayed in a remote place for almost a one and a half years. And had liked that place a lot for its simplicity, closeness to nature etc. But while my stay there I realized all this wasn't valued by the people there. Given a choice mostly everyone would want to transform the space into a city. So the space wasn't the reflection of the mindset of people.
