I came across a sweet and beautiful poem and could not resist sharing it with you my dear readers:)

A child surrenders her restlessness to God in implicit trust and faith. Isn’t it amazing that the little one’s pure innocence matches the wisdom of the great Lao Tzu ~ “Do you have the patience to wait, till your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving, till the right action arises by itself”?

Have a lovely day folks!:)

      Dear Sue in your prayers as a child one can actually feel the faith and trust in God. The kneeling while saying prayers implies total surrender to the God. Thank you for spreading peace with you words.
      With fond regards. Dilip xox

    On second thoughts I feel I would say the same prayer as the child.
    After all I am also in my 2nd childhood

    What a beautiful prayer, I am going to teach it to my girls. Each night for the past two years we pray, Dear God, please show me the truth about myself no matter how beautiful it is, peace grace & love to everyone around the world, here and gone. And so it shall be. We are feeling ready for something new!! This is lovely. Thanks for stopping by my blog if only for me to discover yours! Be well earth angel.

      Thank you and many best wishes coming your way.

    A little peace and quite can work wonders. We are too often hurried and impatient in our modern world, though.

  11. Heta Gala says:

    Nice one Dilip:-) . Thanks for sharing this sweet poem. Whatever a child ask God to do is out of love or the concern as compared to we adults, as we sometimes demand because of our greed and less love or concern.

  12. Very true and beautiful! I love it…

  13. Very pretty and meaningful. Thank you for sharing. XO Sheri

  14. shellymona says:

    Prayer means connecting to God, and so it does …
    a human heart just like a child comes under his shadow for peace…thanks for sharing

  15. Beautiful..it reflects the innocence of childhood:-)

  16. This is a beautiful poem…

  17. aFrankAngle says:

    Well done … perfect for a child to understand, and very applicable to all!

  18. Waoh… so serene. Speaking to God in a direct and sincere manner always leaves me feeling peaceful.
    This poem has captured that magic accurately.
    I love the image even better, Dilip.:-)

    • dilipnaidu says:

      How gracious of you Atuhairwe to appreciate the essence of the little child’s thoughts. I’m so glad that we have like minded friends among us.

      Thanks for the encouraged and cheers:)

  19. suhas says:

    The poem is extremely well written & meaningful.
    Children surrender to God. And so do the elders.
    eg. Arjuna was in despondent & in despair. He accepted that he needed a Guru (read God) to guide him and show the way. {BG 2/7} God was waiting for this moment and gave him the knowledge of BG.
    God helps all.Indirectly he gave us the knowledge of BG.

    • dilipnaidu says:

      Suhas glad you liked the poem. And your relating it to our mythology is indeed perfect. Yes a Guru (Sakar bhagwan) is the tangible form of God (Nirakar)

      Yes when our minds are anxious and troubled means we are weak in our Faith.

      Many thanks my friend. Namaste

  20. renu says:

    Prayers are always beautiful,I have complete faith in almighty and always go to him everyday when in trouble or when happpy..

  21. ShethP says:

    After all, the only thing we need to realize is that He is the All-doer.:) Thank you for sharing this poem.. makes one wonder if the faith of a child is paramount to that of an adult and where, in the process, we are losing ourselves or holding on even tighter.

    • dilipnaidu says:

      That’s a lovely response. Yes I too feel we are holding on tighter as we do not trust and believe in the powers of universal energy. The more we open-up the more we will receive:)
      Thanks friend kind of you.

  22. iluminisme says:

    it’s simple and sincere:)

  23. I’m so glad your shared this truly beautiful poem, my dear Dilip. The very essence of peace is in those 2 last verses. A lovely day to you and a wonderful weekend, my friend!:-)
