I have quite a few poems which have left gentle yet lasting impressions on who I am today. Knowing what I know now which I didn’t know then, the meaning I derive from these poems has changed substantially over years. As to the meaning of each poem, I would like to remind you that nothing in this world has a pre-determined meaning. It’s only us who attach a subjective meaning to everything and every event and feel and react in a certain way towards them simply because of the meaning we consciously and unconsciously choose to attach to them. With that in mind, enjoy reading this classic and famous poem written by Kenji Miyazawa.
I consider myself an empowerment specialist.
I am deeply spiritual and believe that there are few people who are genuinely and effortlessly capable of sensing beyond boundaries of realms without any conscious attempts. I believe my grandmother is one of those truly gifted souls. Yet I am highly sceptical about so called “spiritual practices” rampant in today’s “healing” industry, which motivated me to write this blog article.
My grandfather used to say "Everything tangible is destined to break one day."
Many people cite "Feeling free" or "Being free" as one of the top reasons why they enjoy traveling or joining/doing out-of-the-ordinary experiences. But have you thought about the majority of our lifetime when we lead a rather "ordinary" life? Most of us just work and survive each day just to wait for a holiday where we can literally get out of our daily space.
We are creatures who desire to find meaning in our seemingly short and insignificant lives. From the moment of birth, death is inevitable and we become more and more conscious of it as we grow older and live through more and more of life's experiences regardless of our personal choice.
