In Eyes Of God, We're All Minorities, by Barbara Brown Taylor

When we consider entire universe, we really belongs to minorities. And I think we got special status too. We got brain and we can really make big difference.
I always heard and I believe God is one. All religions are just a way to reach out to God. You call him by any name but end of the day we all are waiting for miracle. There is no good or perfect way.
Everyone is trying but some people find him within, some find in nature, some find in the smiles that they bought on other person face and some are still running behind to find him.
Truth is, journey is endless until we will start believing in humanity and kindness. No one has seen God but his presence is everywhere. I can feel his presence right now in this moment:)
 

The Liminal Space, by Heather Platt

What to say in difficult times is always a question. But its not that difficult to hold someone hands and let him/her know that you are there. Probably you can't do anything to reduce their pain but being there itself is great deal. Recently someone lost her child and there is nothing you can say to console a mother. But time is great healer and with the time people forget the pain or you can say they will learn how to ignore that pain. In this journey standing by with them is the only thing you can do.
Same theory applies to us when we are in pain. Just be there and keep reminding ourselves that time keep of changing. Good or bad it will change so hold on until then.
 

Being Human, by Climbing PoeTree

FaceBook  On Feb 12, 2020 Manisha wrote:
In this universe only we as human got gift of expression. We can feel and express all kind of feelings, we can learn from mistakes, we can get up every morning until we are not dead and say thank you to god for being alive, being human. We can have a wisdom to make next moment better, we can have a wisdom to do anything, we can feel pain for other person or for a snail. These small-2 things can make us human.
When we were kid , my granny used to say "Being born as Human is result of so many great deeds". That time it was hard to understand but now I know why she said that. So I am trying to make my each day count. Small act of kindness is helping me to be human. I just wish not to stop that.
Thank you every one to believe in each other.
 

Silence, by Jean Klein

Parents, teachers they keep telling to kids "Keep Quiet". In my case it was just opposite.
My teachers used to say " Why you don't talk". For them I was much matured for my age. I don't know, why but I loved to be alone and after so many years also its true.Most of the folks are scared to be alone because they don't like silence and most of the time its external. They want people to be around. But I believe in this world no one is alone. If you sit in silence, your choices are increased to talk to yourself many folds. Its time when you can really listen to yourself. Once you know how to connect with real you, life is more beautiful. Because then you connect to people not because you are scared or empty within but you are full and really can pass positive energy to others.
 

Silence, by Jean Klein

Today when I read this phrase, lot of contradictory thoughts crossed my mind.
Because on Wednesdays,we sit together, do 1 hour silent meditation and then for next 1 hour we were supposed to reflect on the phrase which was about "Silence". Interesting right, I heard so much of about Silence today :)
Also I am bit confused. Is author taking about silence within ourselves or surroundings?
Even if we are quiet, not necessarily we are silent. Our mind keeps on talking to us. Lot of thoughts from different time keep on coming.
As individual, I prefer to be alone. Whenever its appropriate and not sound rude, I would like to go in my silent zone. Not because i am doing meditation but i love to be quite hearing sound of nature or just sound of silence :)
One thing I learnt long back, less you will talk more composed you will be. You may not be having lot of friends but for sure you will not have enemies.
Long story in short, if you can survive without talking even though you can, you will be the most satisfying soul in the world.
Enjoy Silence :)
 

The Anatomy Of Falling, by Michael Singer

FaceBook  On Dec 25, 2019 Manisha wrote:
Most difficult part of anyone's life is "let it go". Whatever it is, in general no one wants to let it go. Whether it's relations or enotions, we are so much attached that we don't want to let it go. Thought to leave something itself is hard. Personally I am trying this for long time but no success yet. I am hoping one day I will achieve this and that day I will find myself.
 

Beauty Is The Very Nature Of The Kosmos, by Ken Wilber

Forthe first timeever I attended theWednesday's Awakin circle and Ican't describehow I felt. Such a wonderful and beautifulsoul, gatheredaround to createpositive vibrations. Every minute that I spent there was beautiful. The sound of silence which I heardbefore, butconnected to deeply, was beautiful. We heard so many times that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. But what I saw from closed eyes was ultimate :) I have so much to tell that I will prefer to be quite.
