You are blessed
For you have the power
Of choice with you
So choose what to accept
And what to let go!
You are blessed
For you have the power
Of choice with you
So choose what to accept
And what to let go!
Faith speaks from within
When Faith affirms itself
Everything is surrmountable
Every problem finds a solution
Every challenge finds a way
Visions from the sky!
In these following verses, I recount the visions from the sky that I enjoyed a few months ago before all the chaos, in deep gratitude for the beauty of nature… Across lands divided by human maps, what emerged significantly was how the scenery in spite of its individual attributes, flowed merging seamlessly into one another in harmony… Amazing nature amazing grace… I couldn’t help but waltz along.🙂
I see her splendid beauty
Crystalize itself in front of my eyes.
Mountain tops bejeweled with ice
I watch her dancing
In the fluidity of the flow
Rivers shimmering in the rays of the sun
I waltzed along with her through the horizon
As the plane paddled alongside fluffs of white clouds.
Green pastures and plains
Gave way to rocky mountains
Folds over the hills stretching on
As long as the eye could fathom
A vision to behold
And time after time
The Sun would play hide and seek
Dancing cheek to cheek with the clouds
It was pure fascination
As I watched it all from up above
Magical majestic mystical mother
You are alluring and awe-inspiring in every way
Your beauty blows my mind
And captures my senses
Graceful God, I bow to thee!
Your smile is your soul signature
Your voice is the vibration of your energy
Your speech is a channel of communication
Your intention is the story of your purpose.
Your eyes are the window of your soul
Your heart is the expression of your being
Your steps are the path you create
Your actions are the enabler of deeds
Your body is the lighthouse
Your spirit is light.
You are precious.
All of you!
We are reborn every night
As the beam of sun shines upon us
Every day, we are restored with hope
And faith in the consistency.
Every night awakens to a new day
At the dawn of light
Darkness gives way even in the presence
Of a single ray of light.
Such is the power of light
To instill hope faith and trust
In the possibilities awaiting us.
To envision and uncover our undiscovered light.
To overcome the shadows
As they recede & fade away
For light makes the world more beautiful
As nature is all aglow, in its pristine glory.
So if you are feeling overshadowed in this now
Keep the faith, for your ray of light
Is just around the corner to meet you.
Keep the faith! You will step into the light!
Every weapon made, adds to the fear
And false satisfaction of keeping you safe.
You can never be safe, when at war
Every armor is simply a pointer
Of the state of things.
Of the need of peace than war.
Every need to create ammunition
Shows the truth of retaliations.
Revenge in fear or dare is never the answer.
Resolution is where peace makes its way.
If we must be led, let us be lead
In strength of patience.
To explore possibilities
Let us choose to disarm.
Let us disengage and make amends.
Let us choose peace than war.
Let us find the middle path
Let us recognize the wrongs done.
Let us learn to undo the mistakes.
And move in harmony and oneness.
That is when we can together
Heal the world in peace
And make it worth living.
The Boss was retiring
Everyone had tears in their eyes on the day of his farewell.
One of the employees said,
“Sir, there is one thing we want to learn from you.
You worked here for so many years.
Leave aside about scolding your subordinates,
we have never seen you even shouting at them.
We have scolded our subordinates on the pressure of work or for other reasons.
We want to know about the seed of your patience.”
The Boss said,
“This all comes from the incident of my childhood.
My father was working as a lower-level employee in an office.
He was a very nice person.
He was respected very much in our family.
It happened one day,
I was studying in the 4th standard.
I had gone to the office of my father for some reason.
I saw that my father was not on his seat.
I waited outside.
After some time,
the door of the Boss opened, my father came out of the door.
I saw the face of my father had turned red.
He went straight to a corner and stood there looking outside through a window.
He had not seen me.
I went to him and called him slowly.
He was taken by surprise and turned back to look at me.
I saw a stream of tears flowing down his eyes.
He was slightly disturbed seeing me. He did not find time to wipe out his tears.
Can my father cry anytime?
He was the strongest man in the world for me.
It was out of my wildest imagination that someone could hurt him.
I ran straight to the room of the Boss.
Father was calling me from behind.
But, listening to nothing,
I went inside and asked the Boss,
“Why did you make my father cry?”
The Boss was also surprised.
Thereafter, my father tried to make me understand.
But, that day I had decided to take revenge on the Boss.
From that day I decided that I will study well and become a Boss one day,
but I will not make my subordinates cry anytime.
Because, they are not only the employees of my office, they are also respected and dear father or brother or somebody of their families and belong to someone important.
People say it is not possible to control others without scolding them.
I say, what is love then for?”
People who come to work are the ones who devote their best and quality time of the day to work, leaving not much time for their families. They do deserve better treatment from their surroundings._
Ships don’t sink because of the water around them; ships sink because of the water that gets in them. Don’t let what’s happening around you and your circumstances get inside you in your mind and weigh you down.
Make your life such where peace becomes your priority and no negativity can exist in your life.
*Just because you’re angry that doesn’t give you any right to be cruel.*
*Anger, on the other hand, doesn’t solve anything, it builds nothing, but it can destroy everything.*
*Neurologist claim that every time you resist acting on your anger, you’re actually rewiring your brain to be calmer and more loving.*
*The less you respond to rude, critical, argumentative people… the more peaceful your life becomes.*
*Explain your anger instead of expressing it, and you will find solutions instead of arguments.*
Who is the master?
Who is the mastered?
When mind masters you follow
When the mind is mastered you lead.
Want to lead or follow…
The choice rests with you.
I went to a hotel. After seeing the menu ordered some food.
After 20 minutes a group of youngsters around 10 people came n sat at the next table and ordered their food.
It arrived in a short while and they started eating speaking very loudly and shouting amongst themselves.
One of them noticed me and said ridiculously that he is having good contacts in that hotel, hence food was served to them immediately and they need not wait like beggars.
I felt insulted and felt like cancelling my order. I called the waiter to do so.
The waiter told me quietly, sir, your order is very special to us. So our chief chef is making it especially for you. Their order was prepared by our trainee chefs in a hurry as your food is getting readied by our chief chef.
So I waited patiently for some more time.
In a short while, 6 bearers brought special food which I never ordered and I was given a royal treatment of very rich food. I was perplexed.
The hotel owner was my school friend. He saw me as I entered. He wanted to surprise me. He changed my simple meal to a rich one and instructed the kitchen to give me a royal treat before meeting me.
The group at the next table saw the service given to me and looked at me in wonderment.
That is life. Some will laugh at us pinpointing our inabilities and ridicule us showing off their wealth, power and happiness.
We may feel sad and disheartened thinking in spite of our hard work and sincerity we never get the breakthrough. Sometimes we get depressed so much that we start to think there is no meaning in this life.
Do not worry.
The owner of the world, the chief chef is preparing something special for us. Hence He makes us wait as it takes time. His plan for is special and only He can plan it.
So we have to wait patiently, doing our duties, till his special menu is served to us. When it comes those who looked down at us and ridiculed will have no word to say.
Stay blessed and enjoy your day
Believe in God.
No one and nothing can prevent what is due to us. It will come at the right time. He has Planned.

Gifts of life
Love and wisdom
Are two profound gifts of life
With love life feels meaningful
With wisdom life feels purposeful
Between love and wisdom
Life moves on and evolves itself
Bringing forth emotions
Deeply entrenched in our psyche
All is part of life and living
Interconnects deeply interwoven
The Circle of life flows on
Whole and complete.
Evolution is a matter of chiseling
Of discarding the unnecessary.
Chiselling towards perfection
Weeding out the unwanted.
Until there is clarity of purpose.
Chiselling goes on cutting through
The edges of existence
To arrive at the core of the being.
That stays true to its form
The rest fall off unbound
Leaving the essence to come alive
Breathing life into the being.
Such is the act of chiselling
To reach the purpose of the being.
Each of us helps the other
Uncover the truth of our soul.
For life shapes up
As matter takes form
Igniting the spark of energy
To mould the spirit of the being.
And spirit willing we can keep on
Sculpting… the process of evolving
For the better of the world, we belong.
Revealing the meaning of life and living.
Came across this interesting picture on social media and these were my immediate thoughts.
Do care to share your thoughts.
Life changes and challenges
In the most unexpected of ways
In the midst of great obstacles
In the depth of obscurity lies clarity.
Like water is clouded when its muddy
But when allowed to settle in time
Water finds it’s purer form
It cleans itself beyond the impurities.
The passing clouds may darken the skies
But after the rain comes the sunshine
Dark and light play their games well
Hiding and seeking themselves.
Spinning and weaving through the web of time
Bouncing back and balancing itself gradually
Life senses and synchs itself in the moves.
All is well in the harmony of the flow.
All is well
In trusting the divine will
Life manifests its flow
Come what may
Destiny and fate
Turns in favour
Of the steadfast faith
All bearing witness
To so many inexplicable miracles
Of mystical manifestations.
Trust life & keep the faith
All is well!

I write to radiate the positive intentions in hope & gratitude.
