shadows? Questions? I guess we are entitled to and responsible for carrying only one shadow, and if that becomes a question mark; need to sit with Providence/God to understand -- mostly the answer clears....all other shadows turn their way, or leave us behind, or we leave them when the call comes from top, :)Good haiga, Gillena...worth a thought :)wishes, devika
the light of hope stimulates answers, bringing clarity; much love...
Okay i's about to reach here to say about our responsibility towards partners, children, parents, family, society -- yes it is only applicable as much as it is applicable -- sometimes thinking of my old mother, i wish i could leave my husband here and go and live with her -- But more than my husband, who doesn't like the idea of me staying away for long, my mother itself is the one, who is particular that i must stay with him here -- but who knows who will outlive whom, if you were to see through it -- there's a question which we were offered during a management course -- it is this if a man is to save only one -- when he, his wife, mother or daughter were all drowning in water, and the man alone knew swimming, whom should he be saving?some said mother, the other's said daughter...very few said wife (the reason obviously being he could marry again -- though the thought is creepy, that is what some boys and girls said, between mother and daughter, it was decided that daughter had to be saved -- the discussion is long -- but the answer; he was resposible for the birth of a child, though he could have other children. the mother option was set aside -- her life being almost done,strange reasons -- but life, real life not imagined, can bring such testing situations, and we decide out of our reasoning ability -- it could be right or wrong, we do not know that larger scheme -- we are only part of it, But Hope of light is not so much of a useful idea, Gillena -- that religions and hence man has used it in place, and out of place through history...the most important thing i guess is that the spirit of love must lead us, as an individual, and as a part of humanity -- through good and bad times -- all else becomes a subset then, well that's my thinkingwishes, devika
oh, i said hope of light -- hope of light, or light of hope -- all the same, i think,what is the light we are talking about -- except the light of love that comes with acceptance of life -- and what is the place of hope if death is the next eventuality -- right?wishes, devika
