The fragrance stays behind in the hand of the one  ……
who gives to rose..
This sentence i read  in my lil book The thousand  ways to Enlightment  of David Baird…
This lil book was given to me a year ago for my B;day  .and i read a lot in it….
Not every day ……..  but  i have it always with me
its  just 10 x 10 cm….and filled with knowledge and good advise..
Its a fresh look  on traditional wisdom ……….it has spiritual and inspiring thoughts.
My perfect company

    Hello marijke,
    I love the saying about giving the rose. How profounf it is. The most priceless things in life which you can receive, you will receive the most when you are giving it. Joy, Love, Peace, Growth. Smile and the world smiles with you. In giving love unconditionally and you receive boundlessly. Priceless!
    You are right about Dec 26, 2004. Same went for Sep 11, 2001. One the act of nature, the other the act of evil.I have no easy explanations, many theories perhaps. If I one say should come to a revelation of the real reasons, I will let you know. But both dates changed something in my perception of the physical world.
    I dont know what is the definition of enlightenment as found in your book, but in my case, enlightenment is to be immersed in, and surrounded by, pure and absolute peace, free of the happenings of the material world, fully in a state of being one with the universe. In my opinion, you cannot achieve any kind of enlightenment without doing deep meditation.
    Why dont you write about what you have learned from the book? I learned long ago, just as we receive the most in the act of giving, so is teaching… in teaching and sharing knowledge, we find ourselves learning the most and refining that knowledge.
    So, I look forward to your writing of your learnings. Trust me, when you try to re-write and articulate what you learned, you find yourself learning even more!
    Okay, marijke, take care, be well, and be blessed.

    Well said, Sweeti…….fragnance does stay behind even in the hands who crushes the rose :)!! It shows the selflessness and the joy symbolised when one gives without expecting anything in return !! Spreadng fragnance of love,peace,serenity under all conditions !!
    My uncle is getting as better as he can get !! he had to get a tube attached to his stomach …will be fed directly throughthe tube !! He is quite alert and is talking a bit but his memory,as it is in this case,is getting very bad !! His vita; signs like bp,hb count etc are very stable !! he was lucky to be very healthy for his age…except for Parkinsons that was diagnosed 8 yrs back !
    How we come anf go is decided by Him and we mortals can pray for a painless death !! What has to happen will happen,if suffering is written it shall happen and Godwilling there will be ppl to take care of the situation !! 🙂
    Thanks alot for ur concern,it means alot !!
    How are you doing,Sweeti?
    Tc and have a grt day!
