Two words, same meaning. A poem to the power within you. Ultreya and Namaste. Different cultures same lesson
Living waters spring forth
To Lift Up Another
Namaste is a beautiful concept. It acknowledges the peace, strength and light within our fellow man. Ultreya is a wonderful concept coming from a pilgrimage hike up a mountain. Those coming down will greet those going up with this word of encouragement and motivation. But both do what I hope to do in this poem. Lift up friends and encourage them to lift up another from within.
Encouragement is our No. 1 job.
Right now turn around pick up your phone. Do it. Lift somebody up.
I am no bleeding heart and I have my own bias but this was partially in response to the "Arab Fall"
What beauty there is in trying
What regrets we have in lying
What powerful energy we make in caring
What wastefed energy we use in glaring
What storms are calmed with embrace of Love
What perfect storms are made in absence there of
Our peace our joy is an inside job
Same for that that does rob
In our hearts minds and soul is freedom
Yet also there is need to condemn
Let us all lend a powerful hand
Not one of miracles but one where we understand
Gift of Love and Choice of liberty
Will guide all men to be free.
So many are and have been marginalized. I look for and reach to the peaceful warrior within.
So sweet the smell of peace
But we must help others in time of need
And set aside all greed.
For in our acts of loving kindness
We can remove our brothers’ blindness
And rise above all worldly hate
But hurry before it is too late.
