Good and God’s morning ……. yesterday late night I was surfing the Internet and on a friend’s blog I found this above pictures of owls titled …..INTERNET ….. and to be honest with you thought ……is not we all are owls searching into sea of information with the hope to find pearls of wisdom ?…..
and as an owl of Internet could find this pearl of wisdom from LAO TZU ….. with an age of more than 2500 years yet still shining ….
“Be careful what you water your dreams with…..
Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream……
Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success.
Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success.
Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.”
― Lao Tzu
so decided to explore why owl is a symbol of wisdom in different civilization ….. here are some answers …..
In Greek and Roman mythology, Glaucus (Greek: Γλαῦκος, Glaukos, “glaring (eyes)”; compare Greek glaux, owl, of the same origin) is the symbolic owl of Athena or Minerva, respectively. Often referred to as the “owl of Athena” or “owl of Minerva”, it accompanies Minerva in Roman myths, seen as a symbol of wisdom because the owl is capable of seeing even in the dark and of vigilance because the owl is awake at night.
In India ……Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and good fortune, relies on Uluka the owl to carry her wherever she disperses her material and spiritual riches.
owl symbolize the ability to see in darkness …… darkness can be physical , mental , financial or spiritual …… and in all the darkness a clear vision can shower us with health , happiness , wealth and enlightenment …..
society honors us for our services and how important our service is to the society ……. the quantum of reward will depend on this only …….
so be an important owl for the society ……
Thursday is my date to update my wordpress blog and facebook page ….
at present writing my footnote on each chapter of Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu …… it is happening because of Internet …..
do not you think ….. we all are owls of internet or owls of cosmic net ….
be an owl of internet outside and owl of cosmic net inside …… not to know all answers but not to have questions …..
not to have questions is true enlightenment and real owl of cosmic net ….
