The art of beginning
Updated: Feb 20
Vasant Panchami is considered as a day , every second presumed as best to begin.
What to begin must be a strain stretching to the days past.
Also of its how and why shall be rooted in yesterdays plans for tomorrow.
Yesterday plays a role , but unacknowledged ever, in today's beginning.
We see the present, we experience the present, we live and learn in the present.
Present , however remains the accumulated past .
The seed am having in my hand to sow , has its past.
The plant I want to grow , has its past
The water I pour , has its past
Still, I am in present, beginning the sowing, planting and watering.
Beginning is always in present
Beginning has always a past.
The toddler takes the baby step to adventure a walk.
Another targets on a dart board.
Yet another tunes the rhythm for the flow,
unknowingly of the seeds of instincts from the past!
From the quantity, measured on a time line of past,
present is gifted the quality.
The quality of Wisdom
then is the gift for the present
the learning in the past
knowing the past.
Learning in the past may be experience
accumulated as a being, in one's growth.
The three Rs of reading , writing and arithmetic
added into the wisdom of Present.
The e-learning and e-platforms added into the
digital kitty of present.
Still it is a beginning!
Ancient are the architecture, carved on stones and woods
allowing to know the past.
The flutter elsewhere created the ripples,
and the waves reach this shore
that the breathing being yet to realize
the art of beginning .
The art of beginning is in the past:
the past of pause, planning and preparation
the past of practices
the past of sacrifices.
The spring shall blossom the yellow flowers
The springs shall flow through the valleys
We shall know the oneness of being
As we know the beginning :
Learning, Knowledge and Wisdom
