Ate or eight


“The sense of love should not like coffee, which only gives pleasure to the enjoy. But it must be like oranges which not only give pleasure but also freshness.”   Isra

Elephant (8 letter word)

“No one in the world needs an elephant tusk but an elephant”. Thomas Schmidt

“I have spent hours and hours watching elephants, and to come to understand what emotional creatures they are…it’s not just a species facing extinction, it’s massive individual suffering.” Mike Bond

Number 8

“Fall down seven times. stand up eight” ( Nana korobi, ya oki). Japanese Proverb 

Any idea about the meaning of this proverb?

This Japanese proverb confirms the Japanese concept of resilience.

There are no quick fixes in life, and the only way to accept failure is, stick to the task make a persistent effect till you reach success. It reminds me of the ‘Never give up’ spirit.

At the same time be helpful and compassionate.

This proverb relates to our attitude towards ‘failure’.

Life is never kind to you. It always knocks you down. But get up, be persistent and try to achieve what you attempted. It’s perseverance. 

“My laziness is exactly as the number 8. If it lays down, it becomes infinitive” Unknown

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

dew drips

Other than noticing the dew drops on the glass during childhood and drawing with your finger, do you ever find time to notice or give a glance whenever you come across dewdrops for the rest of your life?

I doubt.

We are all too busy. We have more pressing priorities. Dewdrops can wait!

Since the Wonders of Mother Nature are freely available, we give ‘zero’ value to her.

Dewdrop is said to be a symbol of the human soul.

“I’ve travelled all around the world to see the rivers and the mountains, and I’ve spent a lot of money. I have gone to great lengths, I have seen everything, but I forgot to see just outside my house a dewdrop on a little blade of grass, a dewdrop which reflects in its convexity the whole universe around you”    Rabindranath Tagore

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
