To Speak, Or Not to… Part 1.

*******

Am in famous company! “To be, or not to be,” and all that! 🙂

Am writing this (these) inspired by the Very Frank question raised by a blogger friend, who had written: “Maybe we should start ignoring the newest and trendiest head line topics of the day and simply start doing good in our immediate neighbourhood, friend Swamiyesudas. Love, cat.” https://ckpeacemaker.wordpress.com/

I Really Appreciate that. Thank You,  my Friend. …I Really wish More would write like that.

Am Most gratified that this my Trying to Get People Involved in Questioning and Challenging society, Has borne Fruit.

…….

This consists of 3 posts, and is around 300 words Each.

So, Today, am starting with my surroundings!

Both the above shots are from the North of our Ashram.

This one to the South:

The one below is from within the Ashram compound.

Below, the Eucharist just having been celebrated, Cat Boy has taken over his favourite cushion!

And here’s my famous gate, with my ‘Watchman!’:

“Breathes there the man with soul so dead,” had said Walter Scott, to whose words I would like to add: “Who does not like ‘Likes!

…I would dearly like a Lot of ‘Likes.’ But Alas.

It would be SO easy for me to post much more of the above sort;

Of which I have quite a collection!

I would get Lots of likes and comments, too!

But, can I do that?

What I feel Impelled to do is post the sort of things which You see from me. …Here’s my latest:

So, the Question is More like: “What to Speak, or Post!”

…More in Next. 🙂

WHY doesn’t the pope speak like this?

*******

Or bishops, for that matter.

Some tweets of mine today:

Extraordinary, and Uplifting. Something I am going to peruse Again and Again. …And from Such a Young person. …Words We expect from world leaders, and me, from my prime leader, the pope @Pontifex.
 
@Pontifex, Francis, am Absolutely sure Most of yr speeches r written for u, and yr internet (twitter) is handled by a Team. WHERE are your advisers, and WHERE is your courage and will to speak like this? Do you think Christ is going to give you (and the other popes) an easy time?
 
PS: @Pontifex is the current pope’s twitter handle.

A little Poetry!

*******

इश्क पे 

तुम कवितायें बनाओगे तो 

कुछ सालों के लिए तुम्हें 

तालियां मिलेंगी,

मोहब्बत नहीं।

Roughly translated, this means:

If You create poetry on love,

You might get a few claps for a few years;

Not love.

*******

How to have Everything!

*******

…Many, many years ago, when I was praying that my youngest sister get married, – it all depended on money, in India, weddings mean money, especially for a Girl, – Dowries are needed, and We are a poor family, …I got what I would call a message from God:

“You take care of my family; and I will take care of Yours!”

…I was in the seminary at that time, so started concentrating on my studies, and thinking and praying on what I could do for suffering Mankind. I can even say I stopped praying for my sister, EXCEPT for One very small prayer for her every day.

…She got married into a Very good family; am Very Happy, and I literally have More than I need.

…Do look up Matthew 6:33. It says, in effect:

Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven, …and All the Rest will Fall in Line!

On losing a loved one

*******

My friend Wendy had written this post: https://picnicwithants.com/2020/03/25/losing-a-loved-one-during-a-pandemic/

I wanted to say to her, and to Each one of You, that losing a loved one is terrible indeed.

But, to experience our Oneness with a loved one, or loved ones, proximity is not needed.

Vibrations work, and Very Well.

People, and even Nature, come to Know!

Here’s a wonderful toon to help us realise this:

Have had to share Wendy’s post via copy and paste of web id, as could not find a reblog button.

Keep well and safe, my Dear Wendy; and You too, my Dear Folks.
