Condolences – 4U 9525

Posted on

To all those who have lost relatives and friends in the tragic air crash in the Alps yesterday – we are thinking of you, and mourn with you.

Look for me in Rainbows

Time for me to go now, I won’t say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky.
In the morning sunrise when all the world is new,
Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

Time for me to leave you, I won’t say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky.
In the evening sunset, when all the world is through,
Just look for me and love me, and I’ll be close to you.

It won’t be forever, the day will come and then
My loving arms will hold you, when we meet again.

Time for us to part now, we won’t say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky.
Every waking moment, and all your whole life through
Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

Just wish me to be near you,
And I’ll be there with you.

 – Music and lyrics: Conn Bernard, Vicki Brown

Calm Is All Nature As A Resting Wheel (William Wordsworth)

Posted on

Calm is all nature as a resting wheel.
The kine are couched upon the dewy grass;
The horse alone, seen dimly as I pass,
Is cropping audibly his later meal:
Dark is the ground; a slumber seems to steal
O’er vale, and mountain, and the starless sky.
Now, in this blank of things, a harmony,
Home-felt, and home-created, comes to heal
That grief for which the senses still supply
Fresh food; for only then, when memory
Is hushed, am I at rest. My Friends! restrain
Those busy cares that would allay my pain;
Oh! leave me to myself, nor let me feel
The officious touch that makes me droop again.

My Heart Leaps Up (William Wordsworth)

Posted on

Time for some of my favourite poems over the next few days from one of my favourite poets.

My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began;
So is it now I am a man;
So be it when I shall grow old,
Or let me die!
The Child is father of the Man;
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.

Tolerance – by Thomas Hardy

Posted on

‘It is a foolish thing,’ said I,
‘To bear with such, and pass it by;
Yet so I do, I know not why!’

And at each clash I would surmise
That if I had acted otherwise
I might have saved me many sighs.

But now the only happiness
In looking back that I possess —
Whose lack would leave me comfortless —

Is to remember I refrained
From masteries I might have gained,
And for my tolerance was disdained;

– Thomas Hardy

For see, a tomb. And if it were
I had bent and broke, I should not dare
To linger in the shadows there.

Three Reasons Differences are Awesome

Posted on

How very true – I like this. Recognising and celebrating differences leads to not only tolerance, but also growth and strength

Difference quotes

Although our differences by definition are said to separate us, they in fact bring us together in a number of ways. Here are a few reasons why our differences are awesome:

  1. What separates us helps usgrow – from our differences to other people, there is an wealth of learning material to be gained from how other people live, interact and react, by observing people’s strengths and mistakes when faced with certain situations. Another’s achievements and assets raise our expectations of ourselves and our desire to be better.
  2. What separates us broadens our perspectives – to make something more successful, to power progress, to establish peace and love in the world, we need different perspectives. Sometimes our viewpoint is too blind on its own, but coupled with others, it is powerful. And so, what separates us also binds us into a common vision.
  3. What separates us gives us abundance – life would be…

The Religious Tolerance Poem

Posted on

Devil and sage have to live
Profess differently but to believe
The life demands to live together
“Let people die” but we always differ

“It is piece of land on earth”
Heaven on earth but incurring deaths
People die of terrorist attack in succession
Politicians enjoy the strained relation

No help reaches to people
Natural calamity always forces to struggle
Youth is turning to violence
The atmosphere is really tense

Historical facts can’ be denied
People must be relied
The land can’t be separated

– Hasmukh Amathalal

eligiost
Merely because minority has migrated

The religious tolerance is must
There has to be restoration of trust
Outside threat can be eliminated
Inside peace should be culminated
