The Meadow Walk

On the walkway to cafeteria for lunch today, something touched me…it was a cool breeze. Yes, in the midst of a busy work day! I saw a butterfly, black-golden… flap its wings heading to small purple flowers that bloomed on the side of the walkway, bright sunny day.. how I imagined as if I were walking across a meadow with flowers blooming in the trenches! I even heard a bird singing amongst the trees…my senses as if were experiencing only what they wanted to experience regardless of the busy life all around. I could even smell the fragrance of flowers in the breeze, not just the purple ones! there were many, small bushes with bunch of yellow flowers, red-yellow flowers, pink and some of the trees also had flowers…

Thank you breeze, but who sent you?

It’s been a long time I haven’t posted on my blog, was caught up with life’s little surprises..some good..some not so good…still am back.
Last few days, I and my close friend have been trying to see the oblivious in nature..the wind, the flowers, the fruits…how they exist and perish giving us clues in the most subtle form about what we humans think are life’s biggest  mysteries to be solved.
Okay, I admit…this is philosophy and I can be real bad at putting it down… so just a reflection:-
1. What is the meaning of life? What’s it all about? 
2. Why are we here? What are we here for?
3. What is the origin of life?
4. What is the nature of life? What is the nature of reality?
5. What is the purpose of life? What is one’s purpose in life?
6. What is the significance of life?
7. What is meaningful and valuable in life?
8. What is the value of life?
9. What is the reason to live? What are we living for?
and I end up convinced that – One should not seek to know and understand the meaning of life, the answer to the meaning of life is too profound to be known and understood (and you are right…there is no meaning to life that is why it is so speacial). You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life. It is to forget about the search for the meaning of life.
 
And now I am a wiser being (I hope so) …back to my priorities at work and life.
 
Cheers!
 

My School Anthem

Sophia Anthem
The bells of dear Sophia at break of grey dawn,
From slumber deep wake us, ringing gaily on;
They herald a new day of duty and love
To praise our Great Father in Heaven above.
The bells of dear Sophia O hark; they are calling,
The loved ones, the loyal ones, Sophians, one and all
Come Seek Ye True Wisdom their echoes are pealing
Ring on, ring on, O Sophians hark to their sweet call.
The bells of dear SOPHIA sound their clarion call,
To Sophians when blazing the noon-day rays fall;
Life’s battle to face with courageous glad hearts,
And cherish the ideals which Sophia imparts.
The bells of dear Sophia at calm eventide,
Remind us of GOD, Who with us doth abide,
“O fear not, dear Sophians”, their echo new swells,
“GOD’s blessing is on you”, chime softly the bells.
