Planet is full of life and Whisper….It has everything to make me Prosper!
And when I procrastinate for days together….flower says .. please do not.
Sun is giving and giving abundant energy always….to a poor and to a rich!
And when I live in a selfish way…..sun says loud and clear…please do not.
Trees are giving living oxygen…… despite we cut them and torture them!
And when I hoard and do not share….tree winks and tells…please do not.
River is flowing and nourishing everyone…human, bird or thirsty animal!
And when I do not love fellow beings…water softly whispers….please do not.
Universe is telling me so wisely…you are here for a Purpose and to be YOU!
And When I listen not…..Universe humbly tells me Please do not Pass Through.

Compassion Calms Corona Fear
As we celebrate Full Moon Day today dedicated to Buddha ; three virtues come to mind –
- Non Attachment
And Let me start with Non Attachment. Having no attachment with desire, people, situations and past or future…leads to erosion of suffering. It never means we can not care and love people…but its done by being Seeer NOT doer. This also leads to us having no expectation from others but only acceptance of universe as it is.
With Non Attachment as virtue, we understand beauty is within . As we go within, connection with inner spirit establishes and peace is natural outcome. Meditation helps a lot in achieving this state. When Peace embraces us we get strong with sense of serving others. Serving makes us Deserving by Universe for we become Giver not Taker.
Compassion develops as an extension of non attachment and peace within. When we have no ego, we receive Greatness. At this state we are seeing other beings and non beings as one and same. We are in Unison with Uni-verse. We feel when some one suffers and we act whenever we can to reduce suffering of others. And this power to feel and contribute comes from our own non attachment as first virtue.
May Buddha be awaken within all of us…for world is in absolute need of compassion and peace.
