Merge with the FLOW

Did you see the picture above?

What do you make of it?

How do you interpret it?

Would this be your approach in life?

Have we any single such experience in our lives?

For me, it’s like the family head and the family members

One the strict disciplinarian and the others who surrender. I don’t mean meek surrender. But surrender with all affection and warmth to the head who commands respect by his / her thought and action.

For me, it’s like the man and the lady wedlocked together.

One with discipline and the other with surrender can build up a flow of love. Love which is selfless and infinite. Let us identify these characteristics in our married lives and together build the flow.

For me, it’s like a soldier and the nation.

The soldier through discipline and surrender, both, can build the flow of nationalism. Nationalism does not mean not accepting other nations, but it means I respect my nation and the values it upholds. In the same spirit, i respect the other nations and the values they uphold too.

For me, it’s like a devotee and the God.

The devotee through the discipline of thought and action and complete surrender, can build the flow of Bhakti (devotion). Devotion means I love my GOD, equally as you love. Devotion means complete surrender and complete surrender in life does not come without discipline.

And these flows are the ones that,

Transcend ages, gender and understanding

Create harmony in personal life and social life

Clearly call out for oneness.

A flow which is Universal in its thought, approach and action…

LET US ALL TOGETHER MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE IN.

Would end with the song written by Michael Jackson whom my generation kids grew up listening too and dancing too. He talks about all this (except Devotion for God in his song).

HEAL THE WORLD

There’s a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be much
Brighter than tomorrow
And if you really try
You’ll find there’s no need to cry
In this place you’ll feel
There’s no hurt or sorrow
There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space
Make a better place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make it a better place
For you and for me
If you want to know why
There’s love that cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares of joyful giving
If we try we shall see
In this bliss we cannot feel
Fear of dread
We stop existing and start living
The it feels that always
Love’s enough for us growing
So make a better world
Make a better place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
And the dream we were conceived in
Will reveal a joyful face
And the world we once believed in
Will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep strangling life
Wound this earth, crucify its soul
Though it’s plain to see
This world is heavenly
Be god’s glow
We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die
In my heart I feel you are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear
Together we cry happy tears
See the nations turn their swords into plowshares
We could really get there
If you cared enough for the living
Make a little space
To make a better place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
You and for me… – Michael Jackson.
