I Love the Ocean!

The following poem is translated from Russian by Anton Teplyy.

I Love the Ocean!

I love to embrace and caress the Ocean!
Immerse myself into His eternity and universality…
I love the Ocean! By myriads of hands
I am experiencing His infinity around…

I love the Ocean! The Primordial Self
Washes away, swallows up the borders of me…
I love the Ocean! Having become infinite,
I am holding all living beings on the universal hands!

Trees – Author: Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth’s flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

 

 

Air Spirits by Letecia Pheiffer

I watch the Air Spirits come into my garden on a breeze.

I see them play in the trees,

They take care of the birds and the bees,

let them move on the summer breeze.

Then they take off on a hurl,

and causes a twirl.

They let the dust fly all over,

and stir the clover.

Then they disappear,

and it is quiet clear,

that we need them, so dear.

Stryd van ‘n Enkele

Deur al die donker diepte

Worstel sy met haar geliefde

Soveel aande heen van smagte

Soveel aande heen verwagte

Om elke oomblik te herleef

Wat so aan hartstog bly kleef

So aanhoudend sal sy ween

Weet elkeen van geeneen

Wat arms het wat kan toevou

Aan liefde waaraan sy wil klou

Eendag sal sy staan opsy

En almal om haar vermy

Los nou die harde stryd

Dit het sy nou besluit

Om geeneen te vra van elkeen

Niemand wil saam met haar ween

Nou loop sy die pad enkel

En vergeet van elke skenkel

Wat haar nie saam wil vat

Op hul lank verwagte lewenspad

Die styd is verby

Daaroor geen enkele stryd

En wat staan voor haar deur

Die reuk van rosegeur

Hy het haar kom haal

Om saam die lewe op te saal

Sy’t nie eens gesoek gevra

Haar gevra om sy ring te dra!

Ask and it Will be Given to You (Matthew 7.7)

How many of us have the perfect job, stay in a nice neighbourhood, have good friends even have a good enough reliable car? The Bible verse above is a good one to remember. When you ask God what you need, it will be given to you. Ask God to help you make the right decisions in life, in everything that you need. Life is full of decision making and when we bring God into our lives and ask him to help us we will become successful.

How do we ask God for what we need in life? Continue reading “Ask and it Will be Given to You (Matthew 7.7)”

Be First – No: 1 (for a change)

Most of us put ourselves last in life, in most things we do.

Why?  

  • We want to please everyone else around us.
  • We do not have the confidence to say no.
  • We want to look good in other people’s eyes.

Sometimes it is good to be humble and be the least but it is not always a good thing when we neglect ourselves. It is not good for our self-esteem or our soul. To excel in life, you need to be a winner. To be a winner, you need to be first. That means hard work, diligence and determination.

Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams

“Aquarian Age Prosperity Affirmation Prosperity, prosperity, prosperity is perpetual with people who prefer to be penetrating, prepared and purposeful. But prosperity only comes to those who are trustworthy, those who deliver and those who are content and consistent. Basically, it boils down to commitment. If you put your soul into anything, you can win the whole world. It will be yours. You can sweep prosperity with your commitment. Contain, commit and be continuous.”
-Yogi Bhajan

I read the above quote by Yogi Bhajan, and this inspired me to think about my dreams. It’s our dreams that keep us alive, keep us going, and give us a purpose in life. Without our dreams, life would be pretty boring and dull. We will not have goals to live for or to live by.  Continue reading “Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams”
