POWER

(Taken from the book by Deepak Chopra: Power, Freedom and Grace) 

So many people have a craving for power  – to be powerful! They want to control the world with their powerful ways, ideas, and thinking.

What the world calls power is really FEAR Continue reading “POWER”

Love poem by Pablo Neruba

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.

I love you simply, without problems or pride

I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.

What is Love

When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness.

It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides.

And when it subsides, you have to make a decision.

You have to work out whether your roots are become so entwined together

that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.

Because this is what love is.

The Good-Morrow by John Donne

I wonder, by my troth, what thou and I

Did, till we loved? Were we not weaned till then?
But sucked on country pleasures, childishly?
Or snorted we in the Seven Sleepers’ den?
’Twas so; but this, all pleasures fancies be.
If ever any beauty I did see,
Which I desired, and got, ’twas but a dream of thee.
And now good-morrow to our waking souls,
Which watch not one another out of fear;
For love, all love of other sights controls,
And makes one little room an everywhere.
Let sea-discoverers to new worlds have gone,
Let maps to other, worlds on worlds have shown,
Let us possess one world, each hath one, and is one.
My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears,
And true plain hearts do in the faces rest;
Where can we find two better hemispheres,
Without sharp north, without declining west?
Whatever dies, was not mixed equally;
If our two loves be one, or, thou and I
Love so alike, that none do slacken, none can die.

A Peace Prayer by Yogi Bhajan

In God’s love for you alone, life unfolds

Like a silken cone unwinds.

And we are all woven, one with God.

Strands of silk,

Sacred and divine.

The drums of war are loud and clear,

But hope of peace is also near.

If the Word of God will lead the people

And compassion will flow with the beat of the heart,

The human race will find its essence.

Let us pray for love of peace.

Let us pray for love of truth.

Let us pray for everyone to pray

For the innocent in bondage

Miles and miles away.

Let us pray for the innocent victims.

Let us pray on the death of the innocents—

Those humans created in the image of God,

Tortured by men with earthly authority,

Actions so far away from morality.

In my prayer

I wish you the wealth of peace

To make beautiful our tomorrow

Where human beings can live in love

Forever free from sorrow.
