The Magic is Lost ~





I fill a desire & see the music lost!
.
I work day & night to fill my own stomach & the act of generosity is lost!
.
I get attracted to colorful dresses & wonder where is the intrinsic beauty of my soul lost!
.
I carve a place for myself in this existing caste system & see my human values lost!
.
I do nothing to stop these unending constuctions & see the lush green fields getting dissolved!
.
I earn just for myself & see my candle of kindness running all time low!
.
I hear millions affected daily by floods & draught, still my indifferent attitude finds nothing in it wrong!
.






But when i chant the name of my Lord, I experience my senses listening to my heart!
.
Life is not to be lived just like that, for it's every moment is not just the result of a toss!
.
I ought to give much more, if i want peace and satisfaction in my each and evey task!
.
I need to love all living entities much much more; howsoever i may have to work hard & hard!
.
Only then i can understand, how great people touch each other's heart!
.
How a monk had no regrets selling his ferrari, as his heart always urged for a higher cause!


Hare Krishna!!

Such an awakening message in your blog my dear. I agree living our lives all of us become so ignorant that genuineness takes a back seat. But the satisfaction that one gets by even a small act of kindness is beyond words.

Hey Pilot...
I really liked the thought of it... may be because I was able to identify with some of it...
this is real true that most of us at some point in time question ourselves the same set...Who am I? What am I doing here? Where should I be? What am I doing?
There's no straight answer to these... we try and put some pieces together...do something sometime...
At times we go to India-Gate with candle in our hands...at times we contribute a small sum to some NGO.. at times we go out collect clothes for flood-victims...at times we write blogs about terrorism, poverty, beggars...
Everything counts!!! and the act of it make us understand ourselves... make us different.
You would love to see what some of my friends did: http://biharfloodrf.blogspot.com/
hats off to them...
Here in India we have a lot of what needs to be helped... few good men like you can make a change...so never let this thought die... I see that flame in you...let it burn.

Looks like you celebrated you bithday sometime around... your profile shows a change in ur age..."Happy belated B'day" only if I got it right :)
