#ThemeReveal #ATOZCHALLENGE – LIFE IS A JOKE

 Life -- A Joke

First of all I was blogging earlier but not with gusto but when I see #Blogchatter on twitter a spell of energy flowed. This is my first #ATOZCHALLENGE and I ‘m thrilled. What I find is participating in these themes and challenges are extremely creative and spontaneity is well managed. I have no particular theme but I would like to write on philosophy, travel and books. It is very difficult to write everyday because of work schedule as a lawyer but lawyers are good story tellers and my passion to write on different subjects on law, politics, human rights issues, culture, literature and poetry on and off keeps me occupied.

I would like to share with you a quote by Osho that really spoke to my heart and inspired me this morning: “Be grateful to everyone, because everybody is creating a space for you to be transformed – even those who think they are obstructing you, even those whom you think are enemies. Your friends, your enemies, good people and bad people, favourable circumstances, unfavourable circumstances – all together they are creating the context in which you can be transformed and become a Buddha. Be grateful to all. To those who have helped, to those who have hindered, to those who have been indifferent. Be grateful to all, because altogether they are creating the contexts in which Buddhas are born – in which you can become a Buddha.” We are all unique expressions of the whole; essentially ONE soul

The world changes. Life moves on. There are always new things to do and learn. Changes means we’re always beginners in some ways. We need to ask for wisdom and courage. We get it by listening, by praying, by meditating. I appreciate and conclude with the words of Paramhamsa Satyananda

All is Thy will.

Thy will be done.

Whether you raise me

To the height of spiritual glory,

Or you throw me down

Into the abyss of hell,

I accept it,

Readily, happily, with pleasure,

Because that is Thy will.

I am the chariot,

You are the charioteer.

I am the horse,

You are the master.

Keep me as you like.

Use me, misuse me or abuse me,

I have nothing to defend.
