On the green terrain of the fortitude,
I have built a house out of the broken bricks,
and the pebbles, they had thrown at me.
And have painted my rooms bright, with the redness
of the volcanic wound, they had bequeathed me.
And I’ve planted the thorns they had pierced
me with, in the garden, hoping to see them
blossom into the flowers of the serenity.
O God! I thank them for giving me everything.
What they’d hurled at me were you, yourself to me.
“The beauty of that moment,” I shall never, never forget!
They were throwing broken bricks at me, and I was
building a house with it. I was weaving my dreams with it.
Now, the course of my life is as sweet as the breeze.
Inside the house there is a new world waiting for me.
Had they known then that, I would be using
those bricks and the pebbles to build my
house, then they would not have gifted me
those ingredients. Poor them, what was rubbish
to them, turned out to be too valuable for me.
They were blinded by disgust; they saw nothing.
Ah! But I saw you in those bricks, and piled them up,
until I build a house………until I build a house.
Proud, very proud I am now, I shall be telling
my kids and my grand kids, with a silken smile
on my face, some where in time that,
I had built a house out of the broken bricks,
they had hurled at me…they had hurled at me.
And had painted my rooms bright, with the redness
of the volcanic wound, they had bequeathed me.

Very well said my friend in Nepal. The stone they throw at us and the thorns that prick us all make us better than we were before and God helps us wiht those very things ot make us what we are supposed to be.

Nice to be reading you again my snow mountain friend.

Bhuwan, if people could only absorb this teaching and understand in their hearts the lesson of truth it brings, then we'd have a peaceful revolution in this world. At first reading I was too tired to respond and after a second it is even more beautiful...

This is simply wonderful and what you did with the bricks is amazing as more should do this. I did a walk for cancer survivors and memorials too.
