Enigma – The Child In Us

Sanskrit Chant :

“prasanna vadanaam
saubhaagyadaam
bhaagyadaam
abhayapradaam
maniganair
naanaavidhair
bhuushhitaam”/

Translation:

“who is of smiling face, bestower of all fortunes,
whose hands are ready to rescue anyone from fear,
who is adorned by various ornaments with precious stones ”

Latin Chant:

“Puer natus est nobis,
et filius datus est nobis:
cujus emperium super humerum”/

Translation:

“For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given:
and the government will be upon his
shoulder..”

“Some day you came
And I knew you were the one
You were the rain, you were the sun
But I needed both, cause I needed you

You were the one
I was dreaming of all my life
When it is dark you are my light
But don’t forget
Who’s always our guide

It is the child in us”


Thought

Today is Thanksgiving day. A day when people gather to celebrate and thank for the good things in their life.
Today and every day we should be aware that there is so much suffering in this world. Suffering of the body, suffering of the mind, suffering of the soul. We all experience this, in various combinations, as I believe, this is part of our lesson in this life.
In my work I come in contact with all sorts of pain, so I know that nothing should be taken for granted. We can drink a glass of water, but we cannot imagine how it would be if we would need someone to pour the water in our mouth little by little so that we can actually drink it safely. We can eat, but we would never imagine what would be like to be fed with a tea spoon by someone else. We can take our own painkiller, but we don’t know that other people need someone else to give them even the smallest pill that keeps them alive. We can walk but we cannot imagine what life would be like if we would have to be transfered to a wheel chair only to get to the toilet. We can drive a car but never imagine how it would be to have an accident and live the rest of our life depending on others.
This is a day to remember the blessings that we have in life. Simple things. Small things. Great things. Take a moment to realize all that was given to you in this life: family, health, a home, wisdom, joy, children, success, bread, peace, light, the beauty around us, eyesight, balance, hope…
Today I am thanking God for all, but mostly for my love. ❤
I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving day, God bless you all!
