HAPPY       BIRTHDAY

 

It's knowing you're
somebody special today
And waiting to see
what the hours bring your way,
Forgetting the things
that you don't like to do
And doing the things
that seem pleasant to you
It's enjoying those
marvelous little surprises
That come from all over,
in all shapes and sizes -
a phone call or letter
that brings you delight,
warm wishes and greetings
from morning till night -
It's making a wish
as you blow candles out
And having so much
to be happy about
That you can't help but dream,
as the hours slip away,
Of many more happy
returns of the day.

 

As Jiddu Krishnamurthy puts it:

 

For the total development of the human being, solitude as a means of cultivating sensitivity becomes a necessity.
One has to know what it means to be alone, what it is to meditate, what it is to die;
and the implications of solitude, of meditation, of death, can be known only by seeking them out.
These implications cannot be taught, they must be learnt.
One can indicate, but learning by what is indicated is not the experiencing of solitude or meditation.
To experience what is solitude and what is meditation, one must be in in a state of inquiry;
only a mind that is in a state of inquiry is capable of learning.
But when inquiry is suppressed by previous knowledge,
or by the authority and experience of another, then learning becomes mere imitation,

and imitation causes a human being to repeat what is learnt without experiencing it.

 

Cheers and have a great year ahead!
