Have you pondered?

Have you ever gone in-depth into spirituality?
Even the birds enjoy each other's company.
There is no treasure as lovely and as intimate;
When you hear, see, feel, touch and even smell a person's 
being in the present moment.

That infinite place in me and that infinite place in you
Somewhere in this universe, is called Eternity.
It is not even a place, but a state of mind;
or call it a place in another dimension
that merges every creatures in this Vastness as ONE.

But we are in this place called Earth.
In this present time, and in this physical world.
We yearn for each other's presence
and each other's company,
where we feel, see touch, hear and smell with our senses.

Isn't that beautiful?
Don't you want to experience the moment
while you still have this flesh and blood?

One day, after this journey...
In that place called Eternity,
we shall UNITE... neither there's WE nor I...
There's only ONENESS.

In that place where we don't even need our senses,
I shall embrace you, and 
WE shall  be ONE, in Nothingness.
And in Nothingness... is
The Holy Grail of Sacredness.

A Birthday Gift

Before this year ends, I would like to share a story. Here it goes:

 

It was several decades ago the Seventh of December, the day when an infant first saw the light of the world,  was the day when the universe echoed her first cry.  She celebrates.

She wandered around Fifth Ave. It was 7th of December 2018. A man told her, “Her name is Lucy.”

“What a wonderful name,” she replied. The homeless man was cold. He was sitting on a  small stool in front of his pet with a cloth wrapped around its body.  It was 28 degrees that Friday morning, and Lucy managed to give all her charms to attract passers-by in thick jacket, to drop some change in a cardboard box.

She turned to him and said, “Would you care for some bananas and a cup of hot coffee?” “I would like to give this to you as a gift, for today is my birthday.” He looked at her with a smile and answered, “Thank you and Happy Birthday.” Then she handed him a bag with large cup of coffee and bananas. It was from Starbucks she redeemed as her birthday treat.

She attended a mass at St. Patrick’s cathedral as Thanksgiving for another year of blessings and good health. She passed-by Starbucks to get her birthday treat and on her way home, that’s when she saw this homeless man and his pet dog. She decided to do an Act of Kindness to celebrate her special day.

For the first time in her life, a homeless man greeted her, “Happy Birthday.”  To his delight, he held her hand and said, “Thank you for this wonderful gift.”

“You’re very welcome. Happy Holidays,” she replied and left with a smile in her heart.

Sometimes in our life’s, journey we get to realize that Gratitude is very important to be shared and expressed in any way. Wherever we are, whoever we’re with, whatever it is that we’re doing… it is important to be Thankful. One act of kindness that one gives in any day, is as special as celebrating a special day.

Be Thankful and Be Kind.  By the way, that infant was actually me.  😉

Sixty decades and three ago today…

You emerged from the quiet interior of your mother’s womb.

You first saw the light of the universe.
You first heard the sound of your own cry.
You first smelled the freshness of the air.
You first felt the soft, gentle sway of the breeze.
You first savored the rawness and the richness of that white fluid,
the nourishment of your fragile flesh.

The angels sang in unison as the whole world prepared for your coming.
The couples whom you pronounced as parents, and whom you came through, Rejoiced! 
The unseen Creator, the very reason of your existence, bestowed upon you this “Gift of Life.”

This is what made you special. 

You are special because, you are a special creature molded out of Love.

You are special because in the eyes of God, you are His special child, and He created you with Love.

And you are special because this work of art is carefully crafted with Love.
