You have arrived
With your love and tenderness
In this lofty wilderness
What is love about
If not for us to realise
That we are all one
Every single one of us
All the children in this world
Because we are all children
So I heard
You are here today
And Winged Cupid is ready to play
And aim on those who try to escape
The arrow will not miss its prey
All men and women
And those in between
For every living being
Underneath the starry ceiling
You have come again
To leave us your message
To teach us the way
Of Love and friendship
For a moment be still
For a moment be aware
Of the one beside you
Of the Love we share
Stay with us
And hold our hands
We are children after all
We might slip and fall
So be kind
We are all learning
We are all yearning
Another Valentine’s day Poem about love and friendship – and a really nice one – thanks for sending. This one seems to personify the act of love and what loving can do for us, perhaps it is a way of relaxing and unwinding? What do you think?
So after a long blog silence I decided to pick today to write an new entry
Just a co-incidence?
No way – there’s no such thing in my universe!
I think Valentine’s day is a good one to get off your butt and write some, after all I regard it as a special day. Not because of the commercial aspects of what this days seems to have become for many, but rather because of what I choose to see in it – a celebration of love – the most important energy that we have free access to.
I’ve been meaning to post something for so long, but I am always waiting for the time to polish things up before pushing “send”, perhaps this is the plight of an in-experienced blogger!? Or is it the plight of a guilty PhD student?
Oh well, in brief, i’ve been back to Sri Lanka for one last trip, and had a family ‘holiday of a life time’ – so good to re-connect, and much need after a what has been quite an intense final leg of the PhD journey (which I am still on).
Apart form touring around with my close ones, I have also made great conceptual progress in the whole putting together of this Thesis and I thankfully feel ‘on track’ although i must say i am constantly feeling like I should be doing more. Currently hanging it out with old school friend Vish who has a ‘great pad’ in Bondai Beach perhaps doesn’t help with the feeling of guilt – because the beach has been beckoning!
However, surprisingly the work has also been flowing over here. Today i finally finished the paper i’ve been working on for longer than I care to admit. This proved two things to me, ‘life is not a race’ (but unfortunately we live on a racecourse) and never, ever, ever give up cos you’ll get there in the end, and finally – ‘always’ stay positive, or at least stay as positive as you can!
So today is Valentines day and it has been an interesting one so far! The only romance has been in my own mind, but interesting all the same. I can’t complain thought because life has been treating well. And now about to see Avatar 3D with a few friends, and i’ve heard it is good.
So in the spirit of love and romance here is my valentines message to the universe – I know it is ready to receive!
I hope you all have a wonderful and romantic Valentines day. Don’t forget to use a little extra love today – it is the greatest force in the universe after all!
Love is the Greatest
Love is the greatest force in the universe
Untapped and oozing in potential
It can be received like the ripened fruit on a bountiful tree
We can accept it, and accept it with glee
With love by our side we can go forth and do the impossible
Without this force it will be hard for us to do anything
For there will be fear and guilt
The nemesis of living
Instead we should choose the answer of “giving”
And to do this we need to use love
Love can be given as well as received
It has no rules
It is both simple and complex at the same time
Love is my mission in life.
It allows me to overcome my strife,
Which usually runs rife,
In this deluded existence
Luckily when I come back to basics
And try a different perspective
LOVE is there
Like an old friend who has never left
Peeping at me from the side
Waiting to be invited into the centre
Love is the key to happiness
You do not need to look for love happiness when you are coming from there.
So look for your LOVE within
And when you find it,
Don’t be afraid, let your love sing
Love is the greatest force in the universe
So why don’t we start using it today? Right now, right this second?
If we do, we can see what love will bring?
So engage with your love and then wear it like a ring.
Love is Supreme
Love is Divine
This is your sign
With love you will shine.
