A Little Wisdom
A man can imbue many varieties in his thoughts
Huge material is present, need is just attention.
Some vividness is necessary to see holistic view
An aspect is just a possibility in many solutions.
Ideas created must be many, try to work on them
Adopt one good, but work before rejecting others.
How I involve mentally in all significant around
And try to learn some more than untried so far?
Monochrome inept, handy is rainbow spectrum
Infinite grace present around, vision is only want.
Awaken soul & start conceptualizing bit deeper
Look afar surface, bravely rake all those layers.
None is impossible for the brave souls of nature
Those who strive always find, very well known.
I want to arouse my curious mind & open eyes
And learn some Little Wisdom imparting more.
This will make life more livable, paving smooth
Understanding all, and modifying required tools.
Me a bit strange creature, not strenuous desired
I go on tolerating, though require pointing out.
Man must have some intellect what other wants
And avoid a confrontation in common interest.
I need to be more demanding, life is very small
Things need notice & corrections without delay.
Work on all learnt, though ever are contingencies
Life’s designs are such that sluggish are to leave.
I am to be self-master & able to attend even small
My each breath should contribute to effectiveness.
Pick up good superior works & see how they work
Mind’s patterns & fixing material, and work put up.
I have a small role in this vast world of possibilities
Or I am closeted in small sphere of my limitations?
Great people are not so, they are able to fly across
They widen spheres, try to capture most possible.
Self can broaden beyond limits of seemingly universe
Then everything is here & beyond, are my own parts.
Not bigger than my thinking, need proper grooming
By discipline & working on self, purge all unclean.
Start building block by block, & see a large building
But know building & masonry arts, & required stuffs.
Use available knowledge & all learnt over the years
Go to specialists for training, not simply complaints.
Learn good project working & many new will surface
And they will amuse enabling looking for some more.
Keep your eyes keen, don’t leave any stone unturned
Take out associate’s best, combined effort is greater.
Some people give many works of excellent quality
Though patterns can be there & able to fly across.
Historian writes stories but at times gives unusual
Repetition surely occurs but novelty bears distinct.
This originality of things has created serene world
Mind works in many fields, unfolds layers at least.
For me this is new world, but many traveled before
Eyes must see colors too being hitherto unknown.
Question is not to lack knowledge & wise persons
But it is of course coming out of self’s ignorance.
I don’t know how to contribute to the successors
But do want to live fully & embrace all available.
Great ancient ascetics ably concentrated for long
Used to forget selves, they penetrated in thoughts.
All good things grow in mind; only need is to start
Constancy without disturbance, paves success way.
It is not only spiritual aspects, but also secular
Mind can work equally all-round, if let to roam.
None is unusual for it & has got vast memories
Sight experiences are re-arranged for present.
Though dull at times, but not a dis-qualification
One is to cure, soothe & feed it, and exercise it.
A little precious organ, it needs all good cares
And can work potent for you as a faithful child.
What is constancy & stopping unwanted thoughts
With easy mind’s sounds, experience is calmness.
When it is stable, becomes one with present whole
Serene things produce with each breath one takes.
How one goes deep & embraces a certain thought
And see its all aspects, produce something unique.
With oneness, perhaps comes to that blissful state
Life becomes easy & efficient, avoids drudgeries.
It squeezes first from many, oneness bounds all
Though a specific thought, but looks all-round.
Nothing hides or over-looked, controls present
Avoids leg pulling, stillness is in body posture.
Body’s calmness paves to mind’s concentration
Mother of all progress, and individual can make.
Deviance tendency diminishes; focus on action
That mind tells what to do, goes further to reveal.
Illuminated mind is asset, one must carefully see
That gives all wanted, an infinite wealth stores in.
I can embrace that by practice, sitting in solitude
No one is there except me & my mind’s workings.
No tumults are there & just merge in deep self
Like Pupul Jaykar, try to go fields enormous.
Or like Richards Dawkins, study nature’s laws
And analyzing power attained can do wonders.
How Vyasa likes say so well & vastly write
Or like Ambedkar give giant in limited time.
Many stalwarts came, composed pretty verses
Profited world by intellect, but was hard work.
They find time, may look busy in world affairs too
Engaged for time being, steadfast in big pursuits.
They pick up their dear aims, work till are finished
Not waver with little hurdles, as all are life’s parts.
With focus, they move from one topic to another
Having confidence, they do best whatever taken.
Their sayings become quotations, but stay humble
Their minds’ concentration imparts only supreme.
Each can be a sage if is cautious in his doings
It is awakened mind & leaving lethargy at a bay.
Life’s lessons are many, each learnt one by one
A word a time makes full garland of great epics.
So it is picking up some topic & start action on
With pen-paper in hand, flow starts in activity.
Working with time & zeal is the key to creativity
Hard work & steadfast, Steve Jobs likes invent big.
Don’t stop & move incessantly, take out best self
Check each & every step, clear all undesired stuff.
Pick topic & start writing, though study is needed
Weaving of available expertise can create marvels.
None is new, but mind’s new works are ever fresh
To a child each new is amazement, sees curiously.
All are kids in world’s fields, can pick as many
And can create new, though have patterns of yore.
For me, life is what I have lived & experienced
So gain utmost viable, churning is mind’s stuff.
Excellence is one thing, but merge with the self
Enhance limits, embrace texts so far untouched.
It is not burdening of mind but craving for unusual
Impart some lessons, a helping attitude to humanity.
People need support, do whatever possible by hand
Leave selfishness, a strong demand of mutual trust.
Not quite independent, take help of many sources
Similarly I am required by others attached nearly.
Not handicap or indolent, cardinal here is purpose
But genuine help timely can pave for self-standing.
So awake, stand & pick some good, think for best
Take help of ready lessons, note down main points.
My life is a precious one and richness I am to add
And vividness thus comes by embracing new ones.
Though over period, one must be able to connect all
Seemingly may be different bit, but inside one only.
So help self to awaken the mind & try diverse fields
And uniqueness you will add to self, a life’s purpose.
Thanks, Tried a bit. Try again.
Success is by Trying again & again.
