Guiding Light of The Month

In this immense heroic struggle, in this sublime struggle of love against hatred, of justice against injustice, of obedience to Thy supreme law against revolt, may I gradually be able to make humanity worthy of a still sublimer peace in which, all internal dissensions having ceased, the whole effort of man may be united for the attainment of a more and more perfect and integral realisation of Thy divine Will and Thy progressive ideal. - The Mother

Along the Way… Reflections on the March 2014 Morning Walk

Venue: Bukit Batok Nature Park

This Park is really an amazing place to take a walk. The terrain is undulating and footpaths meander through the lush secondary forest leading to look-out points from high elevation to provide breathtaking views. Bukit means "hill" and batok, "coughing". The blasting noises from granite quarrying sounded very much as if the hill were coughing from far off in the olden days. The park was originally an abandoned quarry and was developed in 1988. The quarry is now converted into a beautiful attraction, a quarry pool with a high cliff wall and a reflecting pool.

The number of cars and the people at the park speak for itself - the love for Nature and physical fitness the people of Singapore have! We could see a group of people waiting patiently to capture the lovely birds which inhabit this heavenly Nature with their binoculars and cameras.

The Walk really thrilled every cell of our body with more oxygen and the joy of peace and  serenity in the midst of our Mother Nature !

A dry spell is taking its toll on the evergreen grass in Singapore and trees shedding their leaves in huge numbers every day. I pray to God Varuna to RAIN on us His kindness to sustain the greenery which is very much the heart of our Singapore!

Do the deep-rooted trees able to sustain longer have any spiritual message for us? Yes, the following Words of Mother say it all,

“The true aim of life is to find the Divine’s Presence deep inside oneself and to surrender to it so that it takes the lead of the life, all the feelings and all the actions of the body.

This gives the true and luminous aim to existence”.

We are really blessed to have such dedicated Walk Planners in Sri Ramanathan & Team to make our first Sunday Walk of every month a special one with such lovely company of friends and Nature.

Our loving appreciation to Ramananthan, Jayanthi, Kiruthika ,Adrian, Anjali, Sophia and their team of friends who gave us the  Marvelous Morning of March first Sunday !

Update  (21-Mar-2014) : On World Water Day, Singapore experienced lovely showers after a long dry spell. Since then, God Varuna has rained his kindness everyday, breathing new life to dry grass and trees !
