There is no death

There is no death

There is no death! The stars go down
To rise upon some other shore,
And bright in heaven’s jeweled crown
They shine forevermore.

There is no death! The forest leaves
Convert to life the viewless air;
The rocks disorganize to feed
The hungry moss they bear.

There is no death! The dust we tread
Shall change, beneath the summer showers
To golden grain, or mellowed fruit,
Or rainbow-tinted flowers.

There is no death! The leaves may fall,
And flowers may fade and pass away-
They only wait, through wintry hours,
The warm, sweet breath of May.

There is no death! The choicest gifts
That heaven hath kindly lent to earth
Are ever first to seek again
The country of their birth.

And all things that for growth or joy
Are worthy of our love or care,
Whose loss has left us desolate,
Are safely garnered there.

Though life becomes a desert waste,
We know it’s fairest, sweetest flowers,
Transplanted into Paradise,
Adorn immortal bowers.

The voice of birdlike melody
That we have missed and mourned so long,
Now mingles with the angel choir
In everlasting song.

There is no death! Although we grieve
When beautiful, familiar forms
That we have learned to love are torn
From our embracing arms-

They are not dead! They have but passed
Beyond the mists that blind us here
Into the new and larger life
Of that serener sphere.

Although with bowed and breaking heart,
With sable garb and silent tread,
We bear their senseless dust to rest,
And say that they are ‘dead,’

They have but dropped their robe of clay
To put their shining raiment on;
They have not wandered far away-
They are not ‘lost nor ‘gone.’

Though disenthralled and glorified
They still are here and love us yet;
The dear ones they have left behind
They never can forget.

And sometimes, when our hearts grow faint
Amid temptations fierce and deep,
Or when the wildly raging waves
Of grief or passion sweep,

We feel upon our fevered brow
Their gentle touch, their breath of balm;
Their arms enfold us, and our hearts
Grow comforted and calm.

And ever near us, though unseen,
The dear, immortal spirits tread-
For all the boundless universe
Is Life- there are no dead!

La suite logique !

La suite logique !

Nos réalisations sont à l’image et à la mesure de nos croyances. Nos actions sont faibles et peu conséquentes, si nous ne les appuyons pas par une attitude confiante. Lorsque le coeur, le corps, et l’esprit sont en harmonie et unis dans un but commun, tout coule de source et le succès devient la suite logique.

Les gens deviennent remarquables quand ils commencent à penser qu’ils peuvent accomplir des choses. Quand ils croient en eux, ils possèdent le premier secret du succès.

Always Beginning Again !

Always Beginning Again !

I wish that there were some wonderful place in the Land of Beginning Again: Where all our mistakes and all our heartaches and all of our poor selfish grief could be dropped like a shabby old coat at the door and never put on again.

Youth !

Youth is not a period of life, it is a state of mind, an effect of the will, a quality of the imagination, an emotional intensity, a victory of courage over shyness, of the taste for adventure on the love of comfort. You don’t get old for living a certain number of years; we get old because we have deserted our ideal. The years wrinkle the skin, renouncing its ideal wrinkles the soul. Concerns, doubts, fears and despair are the enemies which slowly make us lean towards the earth and become dust before death. Young is the one who is amazed and amazed. He asks like the insatiable child. And after ? He defies events and finds joy in the game of life. You are as young as your faith. As old as your doubt. As young as your self-confidence. As young as your hopes. As old as your despair. You will stay young as long as you remain receptive to what is beautiful, good and great, to the messages of nature, man and the infinite. If one day your heart was to be bitten by pessimism and gnawed at by pessimism. cynicism, may God have mercy on your old man’s soul.

Suffering and success !

SUFFERING AND SUCCESS GO TOGETHER. IF YOU ARE SUCCEEDING WITHOUT SUFFERING, IT IS BECAUSE OTHERS BEFORE YOU HAVE SUFFERED, IF YOU ARE SUFFERING WITHOUT SUCCEEDING, IT IS THAT OTHERS AFTER YOU MAY SUCCEED.

Lecteur cible ???

Tout au long de ma vie, j’ai aimé lire de beaux textes, mais jamais je n’aurais cru avoir le courage de créer mon blog personnel et y écrire des articles. Alors en vérité je n’ai jamais songé à un lectorat cible. Le simple fait d’écrire régulièrement me stimule beaucoup et dans un avenir rapproché lorsque mon lecteur cible sera trouvé, j’en ferai l’objet d’un nouvel article. D’ici là, merci de m’avoir lu et bonne journée.
