LONELINESS (Jovial)

A crowded world with not enough space for animals and human beings,

where we can rule the way we like as now there are no kings.

So many are loving,generous, courteous, honest and very kind,

yet some are still lonely and say very sadly good people they can’t find.

With a wall built around oneself if you really love to stay alone,

who will know you are lonely & to help should enter your zone?

Though there are a few bad ones but the rest are really best,

choose someone for your lovely heart and have a lovely test.

For best relationship you ought to have an open and broad mind,

but with narrowness he/she will go ahead leaving you alone behind.

It’s good to accept the shortcomings and fault of your dear ones,

and rectify those with loving care but never with guns.

It’s bad to think that all are bad and only I am the person who is good,

that does harm a lot and often changes even good people’s mood.

A person who always had a balance diet may find himself sick,

the food of heart is good friendship missing that makes a person weak.

Being scrupulous when it concerns the heart can really be very fatal,

the heart is made up of flesh and blood it’s not at all made up of metal.

To be joyful and carefree sometimes you ought to have fun & humour,

just enjoy yourself to your heart’s content ignoring all that’s rumour.

Keep your inner eyes open & find the one who will be your friend,

and heal your cuts and bruises of your heart and evil ways to mend,

Last but not the least if you wish to be jolly & want your friendship to grow,

waste no time to have control of your emotions and to kill instantly your ego.

Where there’s a will there’s a way.

At that time Jesus came to Jericho and intended to pass through the town.Now a man there named Zacchaeus,who was a chief tax collector and also a wealthy man ,was seeking to see who Jesus was;but he could not see him because of the crowd ,for he was short in stature.So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree in order to see Jesus ,who was about to pass that way.When he reached the place,Jesus looked up and said ,”Zacchaeus ,come down quickly,for today I must stay at your house.”And he came down quickly and received him with joy.When they all saw this,they began to grumble ,saying ,”He has gone to stay at the house of a sinner.”But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord,”Behold,half of my possessions Lord,I shall give to the poor,and if I have extorted anything from anyone I shall repay it four times over.”And Jesus said to him,”Today salvation has come to this house because this man too is a descendant of Abraham.For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost.”

It’s a lovely message for so many especially for those who are worried of their shortcomings,those who consider themselves to be sinners or unworthy. We have read about the chief tax collector of the Roman Government, he was not an ordinary man people knew him well,he had enough riches but he forgot all that only to see Jesus.He didn’t think of the crowd .He ignored even his dignity of being a chief tax collector when he climbed the tree to see Jesus.He knew his own height, so the idea of climbing a tree helped him to have an encounter with the Messiah.

We all know what happened thereafter.He honoured Jesus by offering to give away half of his riches to the poor,he promised to repay back four times the amount he had cheated while collecting taxes.Jesus didn’t order him to do all that but he realised his errors after meeting Jesus.Yes beloved friends sometimes we need to come in touch with the right people and situations to understand our follies and may be after that we realise our mistakes.

Very often we find ourselves to be helpless.We cannot solve problems so we carry the problem with us just the way a turtle carries it’s shell on it’s back.May be it’s because we are not ready to give up our little interests,name ,fame for a greater interest.When we know that there’s a need for certain thing then we must ignore all the pros and cons to make things happen.It’s somewhat like shedding weights to be real sportsperson .No one is out of the race to win a trophy. So let’s ponder over the issue to take or make quick decisions and then the tournament of life will certainly be full of excitement and joy.

OUR FEARS ARE OUR WORST ENEMIES

I had written about relationships and separation in my previous post ‘Every messy affair has a lovely message to convey ‘. I did mention the issue but I am against it.Such problems always existed and are always there in the society but we can get rid of such thoughts and ideas by having full control over our minds and thoughts.Every good or evil action takes root in the mind therefore we have to control our thoughts ,thoughts of negagive activities must not be allowed to grow in the mind.

Rationalism has helped us all to lead luxurious lives but it has also made us cruel by means of reasoning and by putting forward different options to be less charitable to others.In the present world scenario we hear of conflicts in different parts of the world.Governments of developed countries spend more money for defense purpose than for raising the standards of living of the common people.The important thought is every human being has a right to enjoy the blessings or resources of the nature,yet it depends on a person’s own parental or ancestral wealth or riches.That means a person born in a poor family has little right or nothing at all on the best things of this earth. A person is blameless so far his/her rights are concerned but we don’t or can’t accept it and name it as audacity. Those people are despised or deprived for not having the said standard to enjoy life so finally they find a path of hatred .In today’s world we find many such people who seems to have become a menace to the society. (Here I am sharing an image showing the defense budget of the developed countries )

That menace has become a real fear of most people,a fear of being despised,a fear of being neglected. When the so called good citizens or wealthy citizens are occupying every little space in every renowned concerns for a better future of their offspring and the downtrodden are keeping an eye on such activities. We can’t afford to have two separate world for rich and the poor,which means the offspring of the rich will have to live in a world where the children of the poor will live.

Literacy has made modern man and woman somewhat blind and hard hearted.It’s not good to be scrupulous but at the same time we need to be judicious to attain peace in every spheres of life for the benefit of all.Owing to the divisions in the society one can easily predict a probability of a war of survival among the common masses. Due to socio-economic problems ,in near future we will find more hungry people in the streets,in the locality. As a result a section of the people in the society will be forced to live in worst fears of such helpless people.

The developed countries have taken a strategy of creating fear by spending more on defense budget but I am sure it would be better if they would all spend a part of their defense budget for the hungry people of under developing countries.It is a matter of grave concern or fear that needs to be addressed for a better world for the next generation. This strategy is not of God but the devil’s.We are so much habituated in living with fears that we are least bothered to get rid of such fears and phobias.Let’s imagine that our beloved children are going to bed without a proper meal for days and we are unable to help them with foods, only then we will be able to understand the meaning of retaliation.

A proper suggestion for a better living is to fear only the Lord and then none of our activities will be detrimental to our or other peoples interests. When we fear the Lord we are kind,generous and loving to all irrespective of caste, creed, colours,religion and nationalism.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,and the knowledge of the holy one is insight.” – Proverbs 9:10

CHARITY BEGETS CHARITY

How shall I tell you all of my little hurts

and pains?

When never before I have shared with you about my gains.

Very selfishly I enjoyed the good and my joyous moment,

the unknown facts of love and glory alone I had spent.

You say,”Joys are moments that we all ought to share,

sharing only the sad things with friends is not at all fair.”

Though very late yet I have understood that sharing is caring,

I’ve also learnt that for caring someone we’ve to be little daring.

The world won’t really stop you for your worst work or deeds,

for sharing and caring you’ve to go on even when someone forbids.

A path of charity is initially full of difficulties and uncertainty,

yet for the helpless ones you can’t afford to stop having pity.

You have in you the urge to help others in need is in your blood,

the blood that flowed on the cross as he was pierced with a lance by the guard.

Are you looking for love and contentment wherever you go?

Only prayers will enable you to find the path the good Lord can show.

We will keep on moving with our little crosses towards our destiny,

good/bad thing is that we will never be crucified like Jesus on Calvary.

A path of prayers is nothing but the real way of the cross,

though we’re carrying our little crosses yet there’s none but He is the boss.

EVERY MESSY AFFAIR HAS A LOVELY MESSAGE TO CONVEY.

Life without grace is really meaningless.Such a life is full of sorrows and problems ,life without grace too can be full of sorrows and problems then what is the use of being in grace?Being in a state of grace means we are able to comprehend our problems .We can easily understand the purpose of such problems.

Whenever we are in trouble we have two options before us ,first we have to either get out of the trouble or be with it.A person with a hopeless relationship can go for a divorce and live a separate life.Many prefer separation because life is short so there is no need to waste it for someone’s non co-operation. No one can impose or inflict sufferings in another person’s life but accepting it for some time can make things different.Trust me I have found the most precious thing in life out of sufferings.I mean Jesus has converted a mess in my life into a real message. That has been possible because of my patience and God’s grace.

We cannot get anything invaluable simply out of our pleasures.A student gets a good job after studying for almost fifteen years.We get the best doctors, engineers ,professors and teachers after a struggle of long period .Those who give up regret later for their lack of determination.

Even our Lord Jesus Christ allowed his disciple Judas to carry on despite his weaknesses towards money.That’s an excellent example for all of us to ponder over .Judas Iscariot was there for a purpose because Jesus Christ was the blessed one .Things could have been the other way but God’s grace was always there with Jesus.He himself was the grace so no evil could spoil the plan for which he had come to this earth.

Allow me to write about one of the great popes of the church John Paul ll .Pope John Paul ll had a pathetic life in his early days because his mother Emilia Wojtyla,died of heart and kidney problems on 13 th April 1929 in Wadowice,Poland.When Karol Jozef Wojtyla(Pope ) was only a lad of 9.His only sister Olga ,died in infancy before Karol was born.

After Emilia’s death ,his father a non-commissioned officer of the Austro -Hungarian Army and a captain in the Polish Army ,an intensely religious man who did most of the house work ,brought up Karol so that he could study.As a child Karol was called Lolek by friends and family .He grew closely to his brother Edmund ,whom Karol had nicknamed Mundeck.Edmund graduated from the Jagiellonian Universcity in Krakow and practised as a doctor in Wadowice.There was an epidepic of scarlet fever in winter of 1932,and he contracted the disease from one of his patients.Edmund died four days later on 5th December aged 26;Karol then ,12 was profoundly affected, Papal biographer George Weigel recalls that when Karol was 15 yeare old a young person playfully pointed a gun at him not realizing that it was loaded.On pressing the trigger ,the gun fired and narrowly missed the target.

When in September 1939 Germany invaded Poland, at the outbreak of war Karol worked as a messenger for a restaurent and continued his education.Karol worked for almost four years as Manual labourer in a limestine quarry,and was well paid.His father died in 1941 of a heart attack.

In 1942 ,he entered the underground seminary run by Cardinal Sapiecha,the Archbishop of Krakow.On 29th February 1944 Karol was walking home from work at the quarry he was knocked down by a German truck .The German officers tending the injured Wojtyla, and the decision to commandeer a passing truck to use as an ambulance for the unconscious patient,is in sharp contrast to the harshness normally expected from occupying forces during that period.

He spent two weeks in hospital and suffered severe concussion,numerous cuts and a shoulder injury .This accident and his survival seemed to Wojtyla a confirmation of his priestly voaction.Later on (Karol) Pope John Paul was shot and wounded on 13th May 1981,in St.Peter’s Square in Vatican city.

So we understand from the extract as to how a person destined to work for peace,charity and for God is saved again and again ,even when all the other members of the family die in short succession.

Anyone wants to know about God’s plan for him or her must have problems and sufferings in life.If you are in trouble despite your good attitudes and intentions then there is certainly a hope of salvation for you.So beloved ones don’t be in despair even when you are the only one left in an isolated island to survive.So long you are in a state of grace you are in the arms of the loving father.He has a better plan to save you and give you the best of all that you require.

A friendly chat

I am truly a slave to my tummy & tongue and my passion,

nurturing hatred in my mind and destroying compassion.

I speak often of love to you all and stick to hatred,

even for my love sometimes I would love to be paid.

I write whatever I want to waste your invaluable time,

making you read all those posts I really feel it’s a crime.

To read my posts you often spend your inestimable moments,

to go through my posts you do dare to remove all your opponents.

So it is high time I write something that’s jovial and useful,

not forgetting to keep always in mind that very golden rule.

The rule to not write that which will possibly make you sad,

something that will encourage you to read and really be glad .

Don’t spend all your time on reading this post,

find a little time to read the book of the Holy Ghost.

Art is long and time is certainly fleeting,

let’s be prepared for the Lord’s day he has arranged a great meeting.

Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross.

The festival of the cross is indeed a great day for humanity across the world.It certainly is very significant to millions of people on this earth.It is the cross that has stopped many from being rude, unkind,and selfish.The peace we speak often is because of the Cross,the cross has taught us to love .The cross makes our lives full,without it we are somewhat like cannibals, we don’t really eat the flesh of another human being but we do more harm than that.

Even a very powerful person bows before a cross that’s because it is not possible for everyone to acquire that special power to accept humiliations, criticism silently.Our greatness lies in our acceptance of hatred from somebody for whom we have immense love and respect.The cross has divided the world into two;if you believe in the cross then you certainly have love for all but if you have no affections for human beings of all denomination then you can never ever accept the cross as a symbol of your salvation.

It is not only the devil who is scared of the Cross but even great dictators,kings, princes and princesses had great fear of the Cross,because they knew the fact that no other weapon was more powerful than the cross.Yes the cross has conquered the hearts of billions and billions are scared of the cross because they also know it’s real power but cannot accept the teachings of the cross because it doesn’t speak of any easy things,it has no easy message for mankind.The message of the cross is nothing but sufferings,forgiveness. It doesn’t speak of unlimited pleaures, it doesn’t assure anyone of easy life or easy death.The cross speaks of afflictions, terrible pain and sufferings.It is the truth, it is the real meaning of life.No one can avoid a cross on this earth, we all are carrying a cross of our own may be small or a huge one depends on the kind of responsibility we shoulder.

The interesting fact is that almost 52 countries have banned the teaching or preaching of the holy Bible because of the message of the cross.Legions of devils flee when they see the holy cross in the hand of a righteous person.Dreaded diseases are healed by the touch of the holy cross.I love the cross because billions oppose it. In the present world we find people oppose only the good activities not the evil one.Accepting the message of the cross means living a simple life of chastity and It is really very difficult for wealthy people to remain chaste,a life devoid of unnatural lusts,perversion etc.

Pornography has not been banned by many but the message of the cross has been banned and that is the twist in the history of mankind, that speaks of the glory of the cross.We all know that there are laws in almost every country concerning the private life of a human being that is why we are all jealous of an illegal relationship, we speak ill of people having such relationship yet most people love it.

Sometimes the statutes of men are contradictory to their real interests.We understand it but we love to keep it because our real pleaures lie therein.So the teachings and the messages of the cross will never ever be accepted by all.
