Healthy in Heart and Mind….

January 10, 2010

What is most important to me is:         NOT WHERE WE LIVE BUT HOW WE LIVE.

Healthy in heart and mind;
Healthy in body and spirit;
Healthy in soul….

What more should we want for us and others around us?

I am linking Rabindranath Tagore’s Nobel winning verse ‘Where the mind is without fear….’ from ‘Gitanjali’.

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high.
Where knowledge is free.
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls.
Where words come out from the depth of truth.
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection.
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit.
Where the mind is led forward by Thee
Into ever-widening thought and action.
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake!

Rabindranath Tagore

Now i add one more (soon -to-be popular verse):

Think the Unthinkable;
Speak the Unspeakable;
Do the Un-doable;
Dare the Undareable

See the Unseeable;
Ponder the imponderable;
Write the un-writable;
Question the unquestionable;

Dream the undreamable;
Vision the invisionable;
Challenge the unchallengeable;
Change the unchangeable;

– by (whoelse but?) ME!

(e. & o.e.- lots of grammatical errors i know – just wanted the rhyming perfect!)
