Posted on

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017-Day 18– The prompt is “shopping list”.  The format and length are your choice.

shopping list, oh shopping list

where do you hide when I need you most

enormous products in the market

confuse me and without you, I’m lost

you know well I am dependent on you

so please don’t play hide and seek with me

or I’ll load my home with the things 

I don’t need

and not with the things I needed most

 

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.
