A man without ambition is dead. A man with ambition but no love is dead. A man with ambition and love for his blessings here on earth is ever so alive. Having been alive, it won't be so hard in the end to lie down and rest.
According to Shakespeare, Love is blind. But it may not be the whole truth. It's possible that Love may turn a blind eye, knowingly and intentionally, to the follies and flaws that are otherwise also so harmless. In my view, only Love enables you to see the truth, and it's only Love that empowers you to find your way in the dark. So with all respect to Shakespeare, I must say that Love is not blind, most definitely and positively!
After a long time of hot and dry weather, the first rain of the season creates an exquisite fragrance in the air - an earthy scent that permeates around us, refreshing our minds and uplifting our spirits. I love that amazingly wonderful sweet scent. Did you know that this elegant fragrance has an interesting name too? It's called "Petrichor"; a word derived from Greek language, i.e. "Petra" meaning ‘stone’, while "Ichor" is the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods - per Greek mythology. Petrichor is surely a divine perfume that must be a gift from Supreme Power. If my life were a fragrance, I would like her to smell like Petrichor.
After the long period of hot and dry weather, comes the first rain shower of the season creating an exquisite eloquent fragrance in the air - an earthy sweet smell that permeates and floats all around us, refreshing our minds and rejuvenating our lives. I love that powerful seductive scent - emanating from the long awaited union of soft and gentle rain drops with dry thirsty ground, and instigating an instantaneous intimacy in the air. Interestingly, this elegant enchanting fragrance has a name too. It's called "Petrichor"; a composite word derived from Greek language - comprising "Petra" meaning ‘the stone’, and "Ichor" meaning 'the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods' as per Greek mythology. In my view, Petrichor is surely a divine perfume that must be a gift from Supreme Power. If my life were a fragrance, I would surely like her to smell like Petrichor.
All the time we hear "Love is Blind." But it's not true. Blind is the Infatuation, while Love is All-seeing and All-accepting amazing aspect of life. Love is Strong and Permanent vis-a-vis Infatuation that is Fragile and Transitory. In my view, Love is like Silk, which is delicate, gentle, illuminating and soft - and yet so strong that no force on earth can tear it apart easily. Love is accepting each other for good qualities as well as flaws, and for strengths as much as weaknesses. Love is working together through the challenges of life, and overcoming obstacles with Synergy. I would summarize Love in three T's: Trust, Transparency and Teamwork.
Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough. Not only have I found that when I talk to the little flower or to the little peanut they will give up their secrets, but I have found that when I silently commune with people they give up their secrets also - if you love them enough.
Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing the things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing song.
