“Thank you Oh divine for all that you have given me
Thank you for this day, for this beautiful life ”
A small prayer of gratitude for the very reason that we are alive will bring immense grace in our life. Yet, it should be done with deep feeling and not mechanically.
What could be more precious than this life? There are innumerable possibilities with this heart beating in us!
Are we aware of the heart beating? Are we aware of our pulse and the entire beauty of the inner system of our body.
What about the sun that rises without fail, the moon that is cyclic, the stars that shine every night and the clouds that keep moving in the sky!
The clouds darkening and then heavy rains…how is this all happening? Forget how, are we aware, are we noticing all this?
Observe a plant, a bud and then how the flower blossoms. Its a process…do we have the time or awareness to sit and observe this?
Is life not just passing by? Are we not too caught up in our routine and think that we do not have another option?
Time to take a small pause. Sit back and wonder…why was I born into this body? what am I here for? what is this world and what’s my role. Is there a purpose or am I supposed to just live and die?
Why is it so important to be obsessed about all the works that we do and how much money we earn and what and all we gather? What about wisdom? What about liberation and self-realisation. Is it not on the agenda at all?
Or are we to wait till all these works are done ( which usually never happens)! Isn’t life about living and living totally!
Enjoying the sunrise, being part of it. Watching the sun set, the moon rise, the stars shine…the waves dashing and lashing as the sea changes tide…and so many more.
Living with nature and being part of it is not applicable until one retires? But by then our eyes will be old and we may no be able to sit long enough to enjoy the beauty of nature.
life is passing by…we are moving nowhere with our set routines. Time to contemplate and understand that life is for living.
Laugh, enjoy, be in bliss…be happy come what may. Anyway whatever comes will pass, good or bad!
in this joy and laughter, life is lived totally. Make time and be with nature. Look out of the window and see the greenery, give an ear to the sounds of the birds, communicate with the birds and animals. Be in tune with entire nature and feel life passing through every cell in the body.
Set aside the innumerable thoughts that keep dominating and absorb the beauty around. look, its bound to be there. Mother nature cant be hidden away.
As the clock ticks by, think of all the lovely things left undone. Start doing them instantly. do not procrastinate anymore. Its never too late. breathe in and feel the fullness of life.
Thank you Oh divine…for this life…
