Mothers

Motherhood

The best school in life

The lessons we learn are invaluable

Motherhood

Not always easy

But it changes us

In ways that are unimaginable

Motherhood

Commitment to our little ones

Putting their needs first

Motherhood

Teaches us lessons in

Perseverance and patience

Motherhood

Work that is often not recognized

Motherhood

More than attending to the 

Physical needs of the child

Motherhood

Our chance to train the next generation

Our children

Young plants that need to be tended

Our children

We’re instrumental in their future

Our children

The fruit of our lives

Our children

Should not be on the sideline

Of our lives

We are the gardeners and they 

Are the fragrant flowers

May we all tend kindly our beautiful garden

Move through it

When a negative thought comes to mind

Think of three positive ones

When you feel disappointed

Think of what you’re grateful for

When things don’t go your way

Remember you don’t always know best

When your are overwhelmed

Take a deep breath

Our days are full of ups and downs

We can’t be happy all the time

But we can be content

We can be calm

That’s in our own hands

Though somethings are not

Our attitude determines our point of view

Our point of view, how we feel

We can wallow in the valley of sadness

Or, we can move through it

Milad

IMG_3633 (1)

 

The story of courage

Seeking truth and looking for it everywhere

The story of curiosity

Trying to understand society and its development

The story of action

Not content with theoretical knowledge

The story of love

Love for one’s fellow man

Love for the Devine

The story of an ardent search

Unencumbered by tradition

The story of friendships

Transformative friendships

The story of sacrifice 

Not compromising one’s beliefs

The story of challenges 

Arriving one after another

The story of perseverance

In the face of trials

And finally the story of freedom

Freedom to be

Freedom to love

Freedom to serve one’s fellow man

Not needing to hide

The story of audacity of the 

Descendants of the Dawnbreakers

The story of Milad

Separation

IMG_1005

 

“Separation brings with it burning grief”

The loss of a loved one

A friend moving away

One’s children moving out

These things can cause us immense sadness

 

This is the way of our world

This is how we see things 

If we think of physical separation

 

In the world of the spirit, though

We are close 

We never leave one another

 

I will focus on our spiritual reality

When I feel sad about the loss of a friend

Or their moving away

 

We are always close in spirit

Separation has no meaning

Chit chat

IMG_1652

Chit chat

But interesting chit chat

Consequential chit chat

Stimulating chit chat

 

We talk about art

We talk about books

We talk about projects

We talk about what’s going on in our lives

We talk about the deeper questions we have

 

We share with each other our goals

Our dreams

Our concerns

We share with each other

Our present, future and past

 

Lively conversations

Ones which leave me heard and understood

Ones that guide me and help me develop my plans

 

These are the kind of conversations 

I have with my dear friend, Elaheh

They are not just any kind of chit chat

The art of knowing

 

IMG_4311

“The art of knowing is knowing what to ignore”

-Rumi

 

Life is full of beauty

But there is also ugliness

Life is full of kindness

But there is also enmity

Life is full of joy

But there is also anger

 

What we focus on

Becomes our reality

What we ignore

Has no power over us

 

I choose to focus on love

And ignore hatred

I choose to fill my mind and heart

With beautiful sentiments

Where no one has gone before

Why do we want to got to Mars?

Aren’t there enough interesting places on Earth?

Have we explored everywhere?

 

Yes, we’ve been to the top of the tallest mountains

We’ve been to the depths of the oceans

We’ve been to the Arctic and deserts vast

Why are we not content with that?

 

We have this need to explore the unknown

We have the desire to push the limits further

We like to do what has not done before

This is what separates us from animals

Who are content with the status quo

 

So, we’ll make it to Mars one day 

Like we have made it to the moon

This challenge will be met too

With creativity, the advancement of technology

And experiences of the past

This goal with be met one day, I’m sure
