Be like the flowing river,
Silent in the night.
Be not afraid of the dark.
If there are stars in the sky, reflect them back.
If there are clouds in the sky,
Remember ,clouds, like the river, are water.
So, gladly reflect them too,
In your own tranquil depths πŸ™‚

Paulo Coelho’s “Like a flowing River” Starts with this poem. The poem tells us so much about life and how one should take every phase of it. The poem is originally written by Manuel Bandeira. I am dedicating this blog and this page specially to Paulo for he has infused new spirits within me… So inspiring πŸ™‚

It is said, a river never passes the same place again… It flows… flows with life… and with life its flows and meet its destiny… its destiny of meeting with the ocean. Be like the river, flow in the flow of life and reach your destiny. With ups and downs… with each impediments… change your path but flow…. I had once read that none can stop the flow of a river.. it always find its path. Find your ways… never stop… just flow… πŸ™‚ Just like a river, whatever the situations are accept them and find your ways without surrendering. When you are in flow, miracles happen. Believe in miracles, believe in life, believe in love… You yourself is a miracle πŸ˜‰ Feel the flow of love within.

And here I am concluding this post with sharing few lines from “Aleph”. So loving and so complete.

β€˜I love you because all the loves in the world are like different rivers flowing into the same lake, where they meet and are transformed into a single love that becomes rain and blesses the earth.

β€˜I love you like a river that gives water to the thirsty and takes people where they want to go.

β€˜I love you like a river which understands that it must learn to flow differently over waterfalls and to rest in the shallows.

β€˜I love you because we are all born in the same place, at the same source, which keeps us provided with a constant supply of water. And so, when we feel weak, all we have to do is wait a little. The spring returns, the winter snows melt and fill us with new energy.

β€˜I receive your love and I give you mine.
β€œNot the love of a man for a woman, not the love of a father for a child, not the love of God for his creatures.
β€œBut a love with no name and no explanation
β€˜Like a river that cannot explain why it follows a particular course, but simply flows onwards. ❀
