Today’s Stream of Consciousness prompt is, “your favorite word.”

Today’s Stream of Consciousness prompt is, “your favorite word.”

SOC winner 2017

All the words suggesting positivity like hope, happiness etc.etc., are my favorite words and one of them is ‘WORK’

Give me all the money in the world and ask me to just lie down do nothing and I’ll be bored to death.

I think no one can live without work.

In my earlier posts, I crib so much about my procrastinating habit. That I do but in some fields like writing only. Otherwise, I do a sufficient amount of work. 

More sick I am the more work I’ll do. Either go for a walk or for some shopping.

Nature has endowed every creäture in this world with such a wonderful machine that it needs feeding, cleaning, keeping warm or cold according to seasons,  needs sheltering, comforts and there are so many necessities that we can’t survive with just lazing around

I cannot live without work, I love to eat only what I have earned so I do all my household work though we are retired; we get a pension and can get all work done by paying to maidservants, we can’t live without working. Cooking, taking rest, watching TV, reading a book, writing a post, exercise, all are part of my daily routine so there is nothing called free time in our life, even sleeping is a part of the work required to keep our body fit.

I wish I could work until the last day of my life. 

It is true that an empty mind is the workshop of the devil and to avoid this and make mind workshop of God we must believe that ‘Work Is Worship’.

“This post is part of SoCS:”

Here is Stream of Consciousness Rules:

1. Your post must be a stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get you started.

4. Pingback! It’s important so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post, you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read others! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet, and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!

Daily prompt- Pains and Gains

Posted on

Daily prompt- Pains and Gains–  Do you agree with Jane Fonda’s favorite exercise motto, “no pain, no gain?” Is it impossible to attain greatness without considerable hardship?

” Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”

William Shakespeare

I totally agree with Jane Fonda as I truly believe that nothing comes without hard work even   if one is born with a silver spoon in  mouth , it may give one lot of  comforts, privileges and opportunities which may help one to become great  in any one particular field such as, science, music, dance etc.etc.

But,

Is having name, fame money and power greatness?

Or there is something else which makes people great.

Some  wise men say that one is great if one does not gives into six enemies,  lust, envy, pride, anger, greed and illusion.

This type of greatness may not need physical pain or hard work but requires very strong mind and hard discipline as it is not easy to control one’s mind to conquer these enemies and become real great person.

Five Sentence Fiction – Conflict

Five Sentence Fiction – Conflict

conflict_analysis

 

Long sessions of meditations, Satsang(the company of pious people seeking truth) and introspection made me think that all my inner conflicts have vanished, I have learned to control my anger, and peace and calmness dawned on me.

I accepted that God has given us so many ups and downs in life to make us tough.

I realized that all religions teach the same virtues of love, compassion, kindness, harmony, and compatibility and only some intolerant of followers spread hate and disturbance for their personal gain and power.

I understood completely that anger and greed are the biggest enemies and empathy and forgiveness are our biggest friends and liberate us.

But…when I read about rapists, terrorists, and people who commit heinous crimes, through acid on others, oppress weak and poor, all thoughts of forgiveness evaporated, I wished I could make them stand in a line and shoot them, some people don’t deserve to live.

 

B4Peace- A Party For Peace.

Posted on

B4Peace- So this months challenge is to plan a party that will ripple peace to the world-Kozo

A Party For Peace.

I’m not a party person so the very idea of party  scares me, moreover, I never had a chance to organize a very big party as peace lovers are much more in numbers compared to those who are destroyer of peace. I’ve met thousands of people who wants peace in this world. All religions preach love, compassion and peace so how come there is so much unrest, terrorism, violence, wars in this world. How come handful of people in their greed of money and power can teach and spread so much hatred amongst people in the name of color, caste, creed and religion and if it can be taught so definitely love also can be taught.

I’ll request my wonderful friends Kozo, Archita and RaraSaur to help me organize the party and I’m sure these kind souls will help me.

All peace lovers are welcome to my place  with their great ideas of how to teach love and compassion and remove hatred from people’s mind. Since this is the party of peace lovers so there is going to be a lot of fun, music and food to suit everyone’s taste.  In the end we all will sing a song,

‘One Song’

of love, compassion , compatibility and peace.

 

 ‘One Song’- ‘Rumi’

Every war and every conflict between human beings
has happened because of some disagreement about names.

It is such an unnecessary foolishness,
because just beyond the arguing
there is a long table of companionship
set and waiting for us to sit down.

What is praised is one, so the praise is one too,
many jugs being poured into a huge basin.
All religions, all this singing, one song.
The differences are just illusion and vanity.
Sunlight looks a little different on this wall
than it does on that wall
and a lot different on this other one,
but it is still one light.

We have borrowed these clothes,
these time-and-space personalities,
from a light, and when we praise,
we are pouring them back in.

Daily Prompt: Green-Eyed Monster

Daily Prompt: Green-Eyed Monster   ,

by michelle w. on August 3, 2013 Write an anonymous letter to someone you’re jealous of. Photographers, artists, poets: show us GREEN.

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.

Thinking Aloud

If I start being jealous of someone,
then I have  to be jealous of everyone
who can write, paint, sing, and dance

better than me,

but then

someone inside me

says,

how can you be jealous of them you fool?

They worked hard to

master their skill.

Are you jealous of them because they can do so well
or, because you can’t do like them?
I think its time for introspection.
Did I dream to achieve something?

Did I work hard enough to get it?

Was  I passionate about my dream?

perhaps not.

so being jealous will not get me  anywhere

I will end up simply tormenting myself.
