Coalesce

Synonym to power

“Drops coalesce into showers;

Become one to drench lovers,

Day dissolves into night,ย 

Becomes a way to dream flight,

Metaphors explode into poetries,

Become an elixir in poet’s arteries,

A girl grows into a woman,

Becomes a synonym to power” Aurora

And the advice?

“Women must learn to play the game as men do” Elanor Rooseveltย

“Despite your best efforts, not everyone wants to be helped. Make a difference where you can and be at peace with the rest” Gary Hopkin

What exactly is the author of the above quote trying to tell us?

I request you to make me understand better.

Why do some people refuse the much-needed help?

Is this because of pride?

Maybe the person providing the help may not be to their liking?

Maybe they don’t wish to be a nuisance?

And being stubborn?

And there may be many more reasons.

One can never know.

When you try to help the needy and if the needy refuses your help do you feel bad?

What are your thoughts?

Or do you think, they feel that you are fishing in the troubled water though your intentions are good?

How to explain this psychology?

Is this anything to do with mindset?

The following quote gives a different explanation

Maybe it’s correct?

“People seldom refuse help, if one offers it in the right way” A C Benson.

What are your thoughts, my friend?

Thank you.

Dead-dying-alive

“Life is a constant process of dying” Arthur Schopenhauer

The above image is that of a palm tree.

Do you find anything interesting?

I am sure, you will say nothing much other than this is photo of a tree.

But I have a different take.

If you notice this palm tree, half of its leaves are dry and dead.

The other half of the leaves on the top are readying to welcome death, with most of the green leaves changing the colour to grey.

Also note the trees on either side of this palm tree are alive, kicking and in perfect green colour and in good shape.

So it’s the combination of the dead, dying and alive.

How do you rate your life -tragedy, comedy or mystic?

If you ask me I don’t know.

I can say that I am a confused lot.

โœ”Life is a tragedyย 

โ€œIn a way, this whole life is a tragedy but let us not pay too much attention to it otherwise life will be even more unbearable!โ€ย  Mehmet Murat ildan

โœ”Life is Comedy

โ€œLife should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming โ€˜Wow! What a Ride!’โ€ Hunter S. Thompson

โœ”Life is mystic

“Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor” Sholom Aleichem

Thought of the day

Live your life fully come whatever may.

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style.” Maya Angelou

In the end..

โ€œIt is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, itโ€™s called Life.โ€
Terry Pratchett

Brick

“I like talking to a brick wall- it’s the only thing in the world that never contradicts me!” Oscar Wilde

Types of men

“Three men were laying brick. The first was asked: ” What are you doing? He answered: ” Laying some brick.” The second man was asked: ” What are you working for? ” He answered: ” Five dollars a day.” The third man was asked: ” What are you doing? He answered: ” I am helping to build a great cathedral.” Which man are you?” Charles R Schwab

Can men be trusted?

Colourless

Everybody wants their life to be colourful

This mainly includes their love life.

But in reality (Time immemorial) are not people deceiving themselves by this thought?

Can ‘Love’ be colourful when the majority is busy cheating each other?

Looks like ‘Love’ can’t be colourful

It seems so if you read the following quote.

โ€œLove is ageless and colourless. It is a spiritual force that binds two hearts and two souls together as one.โ€
Ellen J. Barrier

Forget about colourless love.

Can two hearts & two souls become one?

Don’t take this literally but can such things be possible?

Maybe a pleasant way of cheating one another in a poetical style!

Is not these poetical statements far from the truth in day to day life?

No doubt poetry gives immense encouragement for all good things and one is energized.

What about poetical justice in matters of Love, especially when cheating is rampant?

My friend, feel free to share your thoughts.

ย Thank you.

I am unique, I am special. I am me

Most of the time we are all busy in one way or another.

We never find time to appreciate Nature, which ironically is free.

We spend our fortunes for unnecessary things.

We ae consumed by consumerism.

We are all being attracted by pleasures of different types but not by the beauty of Nature, how strange it is!

Do you spare some time for Mother Nature?

“The more time you spend with Nature, the deeper your understanding of life will be” Nitin Namdeo

Initially, I was very busy in my profession and unable to spend enough time with Nature.

I lost so many opportunities and I lost all those beautiful moments in spending time with Nature.

By the time one realises one is too old!

And if one deeply starts thinking one can realise the power of Nature.

What is the power of Mother nature? (In this case about flowers)

โ€œI am the lover’s gift; I am the wedding wreath; I am the memory of a moment of happiness; I am the last gift of the living to the dead; I am a part of the joy and a part of sorrow.โ€ Gibran Kahlil Gibran

Sadly, the majority of us don’t even look at these beautiful flowers, other than during the occasion of some ceremony or celebrations.

Are you finding enough time to spend with Mother Nature my friend?

Thank you.

“Be your own reason for happiness” Unknown

Do you want to be happy all the time?

There is a simple formula.

โ€œA mathematical formula for happiness: Reality divided by Expectations. There were two ways to be happy: improve your reality or lower your expectations.โ€

Field

“It’s better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life” Elizabeth Kenny

Have you ever walked inside a field?

โ€œNo walk is lovelier than the walk you make inside a field!โ€
Mehmet Murat ildan

While taking this photo, I struggled hard to get a shot of the head of at least one nearby sheep, but then sheep is sheep!

These creatures of God were busy enjoying their meal and their heads were hidden due to well-grown grass.

Are humans anyway different from Sheep?

How true the following quote!

“We’re a nation of sheep. If you go out and look up at the sky, people around you will start looking up at the sky” Alan Abel

You must have come across similar situations.

What about ‘Herd Behaviour’ of humans?

Herd behaviour is seen in the animals. Here animals try to escape the danger.

Sadly humans are copying the same but in a different but destructive way.

True. Humans do exhibit herd behaviour.

It’s seen in large scale demonstrations, strikes, religious gatherings and recently we noticed in football tournaments.

When a situation is ripe for herd behaviour, people lose their ability of judgment and starts vandalising things along with the rest of the group.ย 

It’s interesting to note that the herd doesn’t need a leader.

Someone jokingly said our herd mentality is well known on Instagram since many ‘follow’ like sheep blindly.

Because humans are herd animals, easily fall prey to consumerism.

Any lessons?

“When you follow the herd… you are bound to step in shit. Define your own life. Follow your own path”ย  Unknown

Growing up

Long shot

“Advice is like mushrooms. The wrong kind can prove fatal” Charles E McKenzie

Have you noticed anything else apart from the wide tree trunk and thick roots being exposed before they enter the earth below?

I shall tell.

In between the tree roots, you can notice those tiny white mushrooms, some are about to grow and some are already grown.

When you notice growing mushrooms on a tree trunk or root, is it a good sign or a bad sign?

I understand that it’s a bad sign, probably the tree is going to die.

The innocent-looking Mushroom can be lethal to this gigantic tree as time passes.

“Nature for me is raw and dangerous and difficult and beautiful and unnerving” Andy Goldsworthy

Close shot

The close up view below shows the beautiful design of these mushrooms.

“Nature alone is antique, and the oldest art a mushroom” Thomas Carlyle
