Parrots of Heaven

you and I sitting on the verandah,

apparently two,

but one in soul, you and I.

We feel the flowing water of life here,

you and I, with the garden’s beauty

and the birds singing.

The stars will be watching us,

and we will show them

what it is to be a thin crescent moon.

You and I unselfed, will be together,

indifferent to idle speculation, you and I.

The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar

as we laugh together, you and I.

In one form upon this earth,

and in another form in a timeless sweet land.

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Love of Learning

“If we succeed in giving the love of learning, the learning itself is sure to follow.”

― John Lubbock,

(30 April 1834 – 28 May 1913)

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea,

are excellent schoolmasters,

and

teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.
John Lubbock

what is love of learning …….

love is a yearning  of our inner core to explore our origin

for that we need to learn from nature or in the classroom ……

beauty is the essence of our learning from nature …..

and

creativity is essence of classroom teaching to explore nature ….

what we understand as modern science

or

creativity is science of spirituality where we share our love of learning

in

different ways of individual expressions into performing arts and crafts.

LEARN has EAR in center ……

Ear is an organ works 24 x 7  and gives us sense of time

and at the same time art of listening to listen timeless …….

Indian classical music is basically art of listening timeless

so are the music around the globe

Indian way is a visual expression ……. learning can be made interesting by way of visual communication or by story telling ……. which brings love of learning ….look at the picture and as you will contemplate on it ……. the picture will start talking to you with its hidden meaning

Saraswati is the Goddess of learning, knowledge, and wisdom. The Sanskrit word sara means “essence” and swa means “self.” Thus Saraswati means “the essence of the self.”

Saraswati is represented in Hindu mythology as the divine consort of Lord Brahma, the Creator of the universe. Since knowledge is necessary for creation, Saraswati symbolizes the creative power of Brahma. 

The lotus is a symbol of the Supreme Reality,  By sitting on a lotus, Saraswati signifies that She is Herself rooted in the Supreme Reality, and symbolizes supreme knowledge.

The white color symbolizes purity and knowledge. The white sari that the Goddess is wearing denotes that She is the embodiment of pure knowledge.

each object in the picture signifies wisdom , wisdom and wisdom , …… explore 

let Goddess Saraswathi bestows us with love of learning …..

Love all.

Silent Lips

Listen!    

Clam up your mouth and be silent like an oyster shell,

painting  old egypt

for that tongue of yours is the enemy of the soul,

my friend.

path

When the lips are silent,

the heart has a hundred tongues.

Listen! Clam up your mouth and be silent like an oyster shell, for that tongue of yours is the enemy of the soul,

my friend. When the lips are silent, the heart has a hundred tongues.

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Soul waking up!

What is laughter? What is laughter?
It is God waking up! O it is God waking up!
It is the sun poking its sweet head out
From behind a cloud

You have been carrying too long,
Veiling your eyes and heart.
It is Light breaking ground for a great Structure
That is your Real body- called Truth.

It is happiness applauding itself and then taking flight
To embrace everyone and everything in this world.
Laughter is the polestar
Held in the sky by our Beloved,

Who eternally says,
“Yes, dear ones, come this way,
Come this way toward Me and Love!
Come with your tender mouths moving
And your beautiful tongues conducting songs
And with your movements – your magic movements
Of hands and feet and glands and cells – Dancing!
Know that to God’s Eye,
All movement is a Wondrous Language,

And Music – such exquisite, wild Music!”
O what is laughter, Hafiz?
What is this precious love and laughter
Budding in our hearts?
It is the glorious sound
Of a soul waking up!
