Where the mind is without fear
and the head is held high,
where knowledge is free.
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls.
Where words come out from the depth of truth,
where tireless striving stretches its arms toward perfection.
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost it’s way
into the dreary desert sand of dead habit.
Where the mind is led forward by thee
into ever widening thought and action.
In to that heaven of freedom, my father,
LET MY COUNTRY AWAKE!
Just as a mirror reflects a mans face,
his personality is reflected in his choice of friends.
One must always be careful
in forming friendships and acquaintances,
for one’s friends,
are in a way,
an extension of one’s inner inclinations and tendencies!
Chanakya was an ancient Indian teacher, philosopher, economist, jurist and royal advisor. He is traditionally identified as Kauṭilya or Vishnugupta, who authored the ancient Indian political treatise, the Arthashastra, a text dated to roughly between the 3rd century BCE and the 3rd century CE. As such, he is considered the pioneer of the field of political science and economics in India, and his work is thought of as an important precursor to classical economics. His works were lost near the end of the Gupta Empire and not rediscovered until the early twentieth century. ….Wikipedia
It is pointless trying to know where the way leads.
Think only about your first step, the rest will come.
– Shams Tabriz ( Rumi’s Spiritual Instructor)
Enjoying Life’s Pace:
Waiting really shouldn’t be an occupation.
things will happen when they happen and not one minute sooner.
That is the way of life; it runs at its own pace.
Enjoy as many minutes as you can.
― Rob Kozak, Finding Fatherhood
Everything can be taken from a man but one thing:
the last of human freedoms –
to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one’s own way.
Viktor E. Frankl
light is in your heart,
you will find your way home.
Rumi ❤ ❤
No one can find
except by working,
not in a self-centered way,
but for the whole human family.
