Ravindra Tripathy

जब आप घर छोड़ते हैं तो क्या उसे पूरी तरह छोड़ पाते हैं? कहीं ऐसा तो नहीं होता कि जिस घर को आप ऊपरी तौर पर छोड़ते हैं उसका बड़ा हिस्सा आपके भीतर मौजूद रहता है और वक्त आने पर वही बड़ा हिस्सा आपको अपने भीतर समेट लेता है और आखिर में आप उसी (घर) के हिस्से हो जाते हैं जिसे आप पहले छोड़ चुके होते हैं? त्रिपुरारी शर्मा का नाटक `संपदा’ इसी बात को कहता है। राष्ट्रीय नाट्य विद्यालय के दूसरे साल के साथ किए नए नाटक `संपदा’ में एक रूपक के पेश कर बनाकर त्रिपुरारी शर्मा ने घर से विद्रोह और फिर उसी घर मे वापसी की नियति को प्रस्तुत किया है। संपदा एक स्तर पर पारिवारिक संस्कार और विद्रोही तेवर के बीच विडंबनात्मक तेवर को पेश करता है।

Ordinariness is a simple presence in this moment that allows the mystery of life to show itself. When Thoreau warns us to “beware of any activity that requires the purchase of new clothes” he reminds us that simplicity is the way we open to everyday wonder. While consciousness can create a variety of forms, ordinariness is interested in what is here and now. This is the ordinary mystery of breathing or of walking, the mystery of trees on our streets or of loving someone near to us. It is not based on attaining mystical states or extraordinary powers. It does  not seek to become something special, but is emptying, listening.

Reminders for Tough Times

When life gets stressful, we often forget the things we should remember, and remember the things we should forget.

Here are 75 reminders to help motivate you when you need it most.

Tough times never last, but tough people do.
Robert H. Schuller

  1. You never know how strong you really are until being strong is the only choice you have.
  2. Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
  3. You cannot change what you refuse to confront.
  4. Nobody is perfect, and nobody deserves to be perfect.  Nobody has it easy.  You never know what people are going through.  Every one of us has issues.  So don’t belittle yourself or anyone else.  Everybody is fighting their own unique war.

If it thinks of God with an attribute, it assumes the shape of God. You must train the mind properly and give it proper, Pure food for assimilation.
