Acquire peace within
Then aspire in outside world
Golden rule of life
Since my childhood I found it very difficult to envy someone because whoever was better than me in any respect, I started loving him/ her. I tried to follow like them, sometimes foolishly tried to copy them. So how can one be jealous of someone you like ?
so better post a picture of something green but how can green be the color of envy, surprises me.
better than me,
someone inside me
how can you be jealous of them you fool.
They worked hard to
master their skill.
Did I worked hard enough to get it?
Was I passionate about my dream ?
so being jealous will not get me anywhere
I will end up simply tormenting myself.
You encounter a mysterious man offering you a magic potion that, once sipped, will make one of your senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch) super sharp — but dull the others. Will you sip it, and if so, what sense do you choose?
Do not dull my eyes lest I could not see everything I love dearly
Or the sense of smell which makes me smell all the fragrances lovingly
I can’t do without hearing the sounds all around me clearly
Or the touch of my dear ones which will make me very lonely
Now who can live by making dull the sense of taste foolishly
O mysterious man, go away with your potion to the one
Who has a choice to make a sense super sharp
At the cost of making other senses dull readily
Saudade is a Portuguese word that describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic longing for an absent something/someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing will never return.
Saudade was once described as “the love that remains” after someone is gone. Saudade is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again. It can be described as an emptiness, like someone (e.g., one’s children, parents, sibling, grandparents, friends, pets) or something (e.g., places, things one used to do in childhood, or other activities performed in the past) that should be there in a particular moment is missing, and the individual feels this absence. It brings sad and happy feelings all together, sadness for missing and happiness for having experienced the feeling.
My father expired when i was 20 years old, just out of my college after my graduation. Few things he said I always remember , he was witty, humorous and fun loving. He could not stand silence, he will always turned on the radio. He never said a harsh word to my mother and his children. Here is my little poem for him,
get up you lazy bones,
birds are out of nest,
chirping, jumping on the branches.
do some exercise or play,
I never listened and slept.
only dreaming and playing,
will take you nowhere,
Study hard and get some knowledge.
Knowledge is power
knowledge will get you connected with all.
I paused and
to play, I left.
Now father is no more,
my life is in shambles,
my bones all grumble,
all those teachings of my father,
I remembered and wept.
