Universal Freedom Is.......

Freedom from hunger and freedom from pain freedom from loss and so freedom from gain. Freedom to give and freedom to share freedom from want and that of despair. Freedom to think and freedom to know freedom to achieve and freedom to grow. Freedom from bondage and freedom of liberation freedom from ...

Re: We Will Meet Again

Thanks for your reply and explanation Janice. I hope there aren't any bad feelings! It's good to state clearly why one quotes references particularly if they appear below something one has written and posted as one's own original piece.

Simple Observation #46 - That person who really has nothing ....

That person who really has nothing will have everything to gain
but one who has everything and gives nothing away lives in vain.

Achieving Our Goal

The most important things in life are often those we have to choose from at critical times. They very often represent and determine the course our life will take and to what extent we have in controlling or shaping it. With whatever choice we make, opportunities arise and by making the most of these...

A Hymn To Him

Thou art in the sun, sky, earth and air Oh Lord beloved You are everywhere. In all the creatures of the land and sea You are the one that has made them be. In the soil where all good things are grown And heavenly space of which little is known. Within us all and outside In everything You do abide. ...

The 10 Books that Have Most Inspired and Shaped Your Life.

I got this idea from another website and thought it would be interesting to post here. Name 10 books that have most inspired and helped to shape your life and if possible in a few words say why. For me they have been: 1. Autobiography Of A Yogi (In fact all books by Paramahansa Yogananda) 2. New Tes...

Re: We Will Meet Again

A very beautiful and well written piece, though the following quote at the end of the poem almost begs the question as to who actually wrote it, for me at least. Was it inspired by the references given below? We made a journey where there is nowhere left to go! From: The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri - ...

The Highest of The High

A pilgrimage to Thy feet someday I hope to make where I no longer will be, except as dust, for my sake to please You and seek Your pleasure to date when knowing You are really my best mate. If You appear to be hard on me I will know there's something more You wish me to forego. You have a habit of ...

Child of Nature

There is a child of nature hidden within us all a creature of innocence like that prior the Fall. Nobody around, it seems, knows just how old it may really be though an enlightened estimate gives it an ageless chronology. Even before the beginning of creation when it was all alone, in a formless in...

Ode To The Sun

O glorious dear sun, sovereign of the day, in the sky above you’re one whose radiance resembles a little of God’s love; by nurturing all creatures in the world with your unique rays and setting such a high standard that homage everyone pays. The Earth and all known planets habitually revolve around...
