Keep Calm & Care & Zen

ASUS - Incredible ZEN
Dark Pollution everywhere chokes you and me-
Not only in Environment but also in Minds of humanity...

Good folks are maligned/threatened/killed, can you imagine?
Liars, Terrorists, Manipulators, the Evil & the Unethical grin...

Murders, Rapes, Thefts, Cheating, Greed, Hatred, Jealousy, Anger,
Corruption, Unfairness, Dishonesty, Negativity, Depression, Cancer...

Source

So much muck, pain & violence in this world makes me sad,
Loss of values, morals, conscience, tolerance is so sick & bad...

This is 'Kali Yuga' & the Tenth Avatar of Lord is on His way...
How superb it'll be to have Superpowers early to save the day!

On all levels, we need quick & advanced care & healing-
For Planet Earth & all its inhabitants - Living & Non-Living...


My Wish- A "Recycle-Bin" where I can "Delete" all the trash!
I'll "Do What Others Can't Do"- Clear Pollution in a flash!

Source

Would like the triumph of Truth, Tolerance, Goodness, Wisdom, Justice,
Trust, Faith, Kindness, Understanding, The Language of Love, Peace...

My Wish- "Select All" & "Apply" the good & "Find" & "Replace" the bad!
I'll "Do What Others Can't Do"- Get "Help & Support" for the mad/sad! 

I'll find unhappiness, tears & fears & borders & replace with joy, hope, faith & smiles,
The music of laughter & friendship echoes across border-less & soldier-less miles!

Healing touch for all the problems & provide wisdom & instant solutions!
How lovely it'll be to put honesty & roses in place of dishonesty & guns!

My SuperPower selects for all- Food, Clothes, Homes, Jobs... a rich quality of life,
And applies the bright light of Knowledge to expel narrow-minded ignorance's strife!

We will all think & do nice things being at peace, no one will be cunning like fox!
Human-beings will behave as humans did before opening of the Pandora's Box!

Pandora's Box ; Source
My Wish- A "Restore To Previous Date/Time" as I please!
"Do What Others Can't Do"-"Restore Factory Settings" with ease!

Wonders like the Sun Temple, Taj Mahal & works of art & architecture,
Around the world will be restored magically to their original splendour...

The Sun Temple, Konark, Odisha, India ; Source: Archaeological Survey Of India
The Indus Valley Civilization, Temple/Church/Mosque, Nalanda University...
No more broken statues, disfigured walls or terror-attack remnants in any city...

I can decipher the incomprehensible too & complete stories...
Learning the secrets & ancient wisdom & earning keys to treasuries...

No pot-holed or water-logged roads or shabby transportation or buildings...
Mint-new infrastructure everywhere by restoring Factory Settings!

No more pollution anywhere, no hole in the Ozone-layer!
Unpolluted rivers, lakes, seas & no effects of oil-slick in Ocean-water...

Instant afforestation -greenery & flowers! Oh! What a sight! 
My Superpower has made everything on Earth perfect & alright!

Source: Wikipedia

My Wish- An "Undo" button that helps me to control A-Z & all!
"Do What Others Can't Do"- UNDO problems & have a ball!

I can undo thefts, treachery, unfairness, killings, slander of the innocent...
I can undo broken vases/hearts & reverse Yet Another Avoidable Accident...

STOP KILLING MY FRIENDS  Image

Undo if another kid is raped or falls into an open borewell, or if a vehicle runs over...
Undo the Super-Cyclones, Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Floods...or any natural disaster... 

No more extinct flora/fauna or lost/submerged Ships/Cities in our planet,
A Smart reversal of the past human-error or natural-terror or debilitating effect!

I can undo every hurtful word, arrow, Bomb-Attack or missile used in history...
My Superpower will restore our World to previous glory- 'All Is Well' & hunky-dory!

Not only heal the world, but my phone would also have superpower to heal itself too!
So that if my phone suffered an accidental fall or software glitch, I wouldn't feel blue!

The other day, when my kid dropped my smartphone & damaged its touchscreen,
I wondered why my advanced smartphone isn't smart enough to always be evergreen!

My SuperPower Can Repair & Upgrade Anything Including My Smartphone Into The Newest Model

Now that the service-centre has informed me they have no spare & they can't repair,
Getting armed with my awesome Superpower is all that I truly wish & care!

My Wish-"AutoHeal" & "AutoUpgrade" & "AutoUpdate"!
I'll "Do What Others Can't Do"- Ensure the latest in my fate!

How I'd love smart super-features & all devices metamorphosis into the newest model!
No more worrying/buying- always having the latest devices should augur well!

Any damaged object or accident-victim can benefit with my SuperPower,
Device/Human will be 'healed' instantly and the cracks/injury will disappear!

Now Humpty Dumpty or anyone can sit on the wall & have a great fall in sun/rain!
All my Superpowers can calmly care & with Zen help put Humpty together again!

Zen
I am sure even you are drooling about my amazing Zen Superpower Phone now!
Finding the Incredible & to SEE & DO WHAT OTHERS CAN'T SEE & DO is WOW!

Notice that the word 'Citizen' has 'ZEN'!
May all Citizens carry Zen, keep Zen, love Zen, be Zen, stay Zen & Zen on!

  21. Woooow...you can compose and all i do sometimes is just cry out...get emotional and cry out, Yada yada hee dharmasya glanirbhavati bharta abhyuthanam adharmasya paritarnaya sdhunam vinashaya cha dushkritanam dharma shanshthapnarthaya smbhavami yugay yugay...forgive the spelling errors but i sure do and cry out for a Redeemer to come. Sometimes the despair gets too much because i am afraid for my children and their children. When, when when...when the tears are finished i feel calmer. i try to be good, try to be the drop in the ocean but the ocean is just too polluted and sometimes my goodness gets polluted too Anita. Now trying to grasp all the positives i can through urs. Thanx for this.

      The lines from the Gita are very relevant. High time for the Redeemer...

      Yes, even I'm so depressed watching the news that I chose to express my emotions about sad cases like- Sunanda Pushkar, HP Dam tragedy, UP Badaun Rape, Gaza Attacks etc. through poems.
      Shed enough tears.
      Really need Superpowers to UNDO all the problems...
      Wishing & praying a lot these days. Hope wishes will come true & we have a better world...

  38. Anita, thanks for hooking up to ABC so I could see this masterwork of meditation and optimism - while acknowledging the mess, you are brave and right to see beyond!

    Zen is the point, no? I went straight for racists this week and offered no solution (is there one, other than trying to show them that love is more important than anything?). You brought together amazing graphics (Pandora's Box is out of this world) and all the favorite "Keep Calm" posters that hang around Madison, WI since the 100,000 citiZEN protest of the governor's union busting two years ago.

    This is one for the ages. Bless you for your optimism and grace. Amy

      I feel so blessed connecting with positive people like you from around the world.
      It's great when our thoughts, feelings & ideas gain acceptance & support, irrespective of man-made barriers like religions, borders of countries etc. - all what are responsible for strife & sadness...

      All the pictures are courtesy the source mentioned beneath them. I haven't created any; just shared them :)
      I have often wondered if our world would have been a better place if Pandora hadn't been so curious & not opened the Pandora's Box!

  39. Anita, we are the ones we are waiting for...Super power within us has to be brought out to be the change we are desiring around.
    I do understand, and share your sadness, concerns and anxieties about the affairs of the world around us. The solution begins when we start changing ourselves, extricate ourselves from the greed, selfishness and excessive desires.. May that superpower within us all come to rescue us all. That would be the redeemer..

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your insights & wise words.
      I agree with you. Even Gautam Buddha & other wise men have stated this.
      In today's age, man's inherent superpowers & inner beauty & human intelligence needs to come alive...
      I often wonder about our mental-health as we allow crazy things to happen in our world...

      Just like a Chemical Reaction in Science is triggered off by Reactants, we urgently need a powerful Reactant who'll bring about the transformation in us & our world...
      Then, we can respect our Superpowers & treat everyone with care & be Zen...

  40. WOW! This is fantastic, Anita. So much expressed in this one post. Calm is what we sorely need in a world like today's. Then only true solutions to the multitudinous problems can surface in the light of that inner, deep calm. And India has the best chance to bring out that deep solutions, if only we can learn to see the strength of our civilization in the right spirit. Congratulations on this wonderful post, dear!
