I am prudish .. just not judgemental
I am kind to others not my kind
And yet I know .. I know me well
I am never ever ... unkind.
la la la.
This lesson was explained to me through some words on success I read in a book written by a pastor .. which I accepted as a first true epiphany moment for my mind.
There have been so many since then appreciated through most of the major religions of the world impacting me since then ... my mind has simply blossomed from one of limited exposure to understanding the differences in our cultures and creeds ... and being able to accept our unity .. even in our diversity. To experience the greatness or grandness of our own minds .. you must first have to step out of your comfort zone to experience ... of what value is life when there is none of this ?
I define ... MEDIOCRITY AS ... FINE ...
BUT FRIEND ..
LET ME TELL IT TO YOU STRAIGHT .... IT JUST ISN'T !!!
As an indian I welcome you with a Namaste ... which means that I bow to the god within you. If God had not been kind to me I would never have understood ... for it took me to the age of 55 and then revealed itself. And I can honestly tell you that it was me searching for my greatness .. no longer happy at so many years having slipped by in mediocrity ... a helplessness that I was no longer ready to tolerate.
and ..... as I learnt in Thailand on my holiday for I was lucky to have interacted with so many locals when I chose to see their world ... i.e. looked people in the eye when they wished me their local greeting of sawasadeeha with radiant smiles. Their smiles were so real and they so much wanted to please that it really warmed my heart enough to make me want to return their smiles. If you have met up with grouchy people you will understand what I mean. That's why the place is thronging with visitors.
