Om Poornamadha Poornamidam

Om Poornamadha Poornamidam
Poornaat Poornamudachyate
Poornasaya Poornamaadaaya
Poornamevaavashisthyate
Om shanti shanti shanti

This is full (complete) and
That is full and
When you take this full out of that full,
That is still full.

Anand gave the analogy that when you have a full bucket of water and you just take a cup out, that the bucket is essentially still full.

Isn't our life like that? When we're filling ourselves with refreshing water (rest, love, food, our passions, quiet spiritual time- meditation or prayer) then when cups of water (life, energy, anger, joy, shared experiences) are taken from us, we still have more to give. But, when we continue to give and give and don't a time of renewal and restoration, our water will deplete itself. What then will we give?

Feeling full,

Mel
