In Times Of Great Struggle



When the world pushes us to our knees,
We have found the best position for praying.
Before we do, we do well to remind ourselves that
True happiness does not consist of living in a world
Where everything is already perfect and beautiful.
It does grow from the ability of peering
Beyond the ends of our noses
And the imperfections of our world,
Towards the higher purpose of life.

Only then can the perfected and beautiful self be perceived
That dwells deep within everybody’s core.
The Divine spark is in everyone and
It makes no difference whether
It is already visible in someone or not.
Even in the lowest and meanest of us earthlings
It is merely waiting to wake up from its slumbers
And brought forth, just the way it once did in you and me.
Developing it is every human being’s
Highest potential and birthright.

The Greatest Glory



Life is a gift, so make it count and never give up on what you believe in. Be brave and make mistakes, because they teach us more than our successes. Instead of feeling bad about them, it is better by far to appreciate our blunders for helping us to become better people and to acknowledge that our successes in life could only grow from what we learnt from our slip-ups.

The greatest glory is not in never falling,
But in rising again, each time we fall.
Confucius 551-479 BC

Therefore, only look down on someone when you are giving them a helping hand to get up.

Stepping Stones



Earth life has many stepping stones
That help us find our way
Across its busy stream,
As we wade through it, day by day.

At times the waters rise and overflow,
And the future looks far from clear.
No way there seems to be across
And the stones all disappear.

Wait until the flow subsides
And the path is more clearly shown.
Once again you can see and use every stone.
When you then look ahead, the future is bright.
