“Be open minded like the sky.
Be accepting like the ocean.
Be loving like a flower.”
― Debasish Mridha
I think this phrase of Mridha has tons of contemplation in it….Every time you read it you discover another layer…I just wanna share with you some of my own thoughts…
“Be open minded like the sky”. We all think we are open minded until we start to ask ourselves deep questions.Imagine how vast is the openness of the sky. This is how a true open minded intellect should be to embrace all the amazing possibilities of nature. This is how a brave soul must be to embrace and discover all the other human beings. And if one achieves this mental state, one will certainly enjoy the amazing overview you have when you are up high in the sky….
“Be accepting like the ocean”. We live in challenging times and one of the most common problems is our difficulty in accepting the things that happen to us when these are in contradiction to our desires. We do not want to be accepting because we feel that this way we compromise. But what if you are accepting like the ocean? Your true inner potence and magnificence cannot be altered by any kind of problem or issue no matter how huge it may be. You can throw into the ocean a whole city but the ocean will stay as it is. Magnificent, deep and vast.
“Be loving like a flower”.The last part of the phrase is so beautiful and tender. How is it really to love with the elegance, generosity and tenderness of a blossomed flower?…. I leave it to you to tell me what you think about it. I would love to read your thoughts for all three parts of the phrase in the comments…
