This morning looking at a butterfly and bees on the flowers in the garden and coming home and preparing herbal tea with honey …… thought about honey and how bees collect the essence from all flowers to create this …..
In Indain language Hindi it is MADHU ….. and also listening to this great Bhajan from a great singer about the God
॥ मधुराष्टकम् ॥ (वल्लभ आचार्य )
अधरं मधुरं वदनं मधुरं नयनं मधुरं हसितं मधुरम् ।
हृदयं मधुरं गमनं मधुरं मधुराधिपतेरखिलं मधुरम् ॥ १ ॥
अधरं मधुरं adharaṁ madhuraṁ (His) lips are sweet
वदनं मधुरं vadanaṁ madhuraṁ (His) face is sweet
नयनं मधुरं nayanaṁ madhuraṁ (His) eyes are sweet
हसितं मधुरम् । hasitaṁ madhuram . (His) smile is sweet
हृदयं मधुरं hṛdayaṁ madhuraṁ (His) heart is sweet
गमनं मधुरं gamanaṁ madhuraṁ (His) gait (walk) is sweet
मधुराधिपतेरखिलं मधुरम् ॥ १ ॥ madhurādhipaterakhilaṁ madhuram .. 1 .. Everything is sweet about the Lord of Sweetness
there is no English word to give a meaning to MADHURA ….. off course honey and suger is sweet but suger is not MADHU….
madhura is essence of oneness ….. and even In HONEY …..ONE is the soul of honey ….. that ONE which is the essence of us all is one God ….neutral and natural like water …..
also was reading this post on wordpress ….. a beautiful one …
From All we come and to All we return”https://sistersofpower.wordpress.com/2012/03/01/from-all-we-come-and-to-all-we-return/
It still amazes me how very driven we are by our prejudices both negative and positive. … How very easily we come to conclusions about others based on a look, a sound and even a smell. What do any of these have to do with who a person is at the core?
Do you suppose that a raindrop on its journey from Heaven to Earth has time to ask the nearest drop “Where are you from? What are you made up of?” or “What is it that you believe?” It sounds silly doesn’t it? Especially when there is only one answer… WATER. They are from water and will return to water.
Do you suppose that if the other drop’s answers are not what the first drop expects, that he will not be welcome in whichever body of water they end up in? Or will they all become one regardless?
Water does not have a choice in the matter and neither do we. For regardless of what path we have taken we are here now. Like it or not we share this planet as our home. We use its resources the same way. We breathe its air and drink its water. We sustain ourselves from its bounty.
We really do have more in common than not. Since we are more than 70% water, should we not take the example set by it? The most important thing to water is water. It will always seek out more water.
So why don’t we do the same? We all come from ONE and shall return to ONE.
Therefore we should seek ONENESS in ALL with the same LOVE that is ONE
All the religion which exists in the name of religion are philosophies, natural love which exists without name is true religion.
