Live Life Lovingly!


Especially for 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 ridiculousy 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 specially for you. Their order was prepared by our trainee chefs in a hurry as ur food is getting ready 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 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 specially 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 as He has Planned.

A share translated by my mother from a Tamil story.


Gifts of life

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.

Chiseling Along The Way…

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.

Give it time

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.

Trust Life!

All is well

In trustfulness

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!

Why I write 

I write when I am charged with an idea, an inspiration. Or perhaps when there is nothing else to do.

I write to balance my emotions whenever it needs equilibrium.
I write to flow with the moment with a thought that aligns as it calls on and emerges into a pattern in prose or verse.
I write to understand better when thoughts overpower…overstimulate the mind.
I write to let go of all that comes to my mind which I feel and hope can make a positive difference somewhere to someone reading me.
I write at times in deliberation too, to process and synthesize new understandings.
I write to unshackle from the many convictions I may unknowingly hold. As I write they break loose from restrictive spaces and help to align my thoughts in the sifting.
I write to express the bounties of life that I’m blessed to enjoy in gratitude.
I write to sense the bliss of being with all of me in the moment.

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

Simply put…
I write to express myself my way.

Befriend nature.

Be a friend of the earth

Befriend nature

Identify with it

You are born of it.

Be one with it!

Care and be concerned

About what affects

The world today

For it matters

Just as much as you.

Love nature

Nourish it with nurture

Grow plants save trees

Choose green living

Choose to sustain and simplify

Support and stand for the cause

Of living with nature.

Voice your thoughts

That are pro nature.

Take a step

To protect nature

Every good deed from the heart

Makes a relevant difference.
