The poem below is a redux of my poem of last week.
Joe simply nailed the essence I was after:
No water molecule is wet
No atom by itself is blue
No braincell all alone is prescient
Units need a nexus true.
Together do the bit and pieces
Interact and interplay
For each and all are Mind’s expression
In the endless cosmic day.
Thank you to those who shared these thought provoking quotes with me:
“Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.” -Lord Byron
“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.” -Albert Einstein
“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.” -George Washington Carver
“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” Carl Jung
“If you have to talk to more than three people about the same problem, you don’t want help, you want attention.” – 12 Step Saying
“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter… to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life. ” ― John Burroughs
“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.” -Desmond Tutu
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” – Howard Thurman
Even after all this time
The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe Me.”
Look what happens
with a love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.
