“To be truly happy and contented, you must let go of what it means to be happy or content.” – Confucius
What is so difficult about the letting go?
Is it the fear of not being able to have it again when you need it most?
Or is it about the holding on to memories that were?
Or is it the attachment to things that is most difficult to release?
When we realize how dispensable we are and how transient is our being…
We will begin to see the world with a fresh pair of eyes.
We will know, nothing is given
Neither our lives nor our nature
Every manifestation must evolve
To another state in the flow
Then we may perhaps be able
To accept letting go as part of the flow!
This beautiful bloom blossoms ever so gently in a timelapse.
Watch this delicate dance with life!
“Be the brave heart
that learns to dance to life.
Dream on and take the chances.
And let your soul live this dance of life.”
To combat the cruelties of this world we must start thinking globally not just locally and realise how much our world is hurting all over from all that’s truly unfair.
If only we could realize how valuable it is to be appreciated and supported .
If we could only know how important it is to feel inclusive in our diverse ways.
We must understand that love and kindness is the only way besides adopting a non-judgmental approach.
We must realise how vulnerable life is, but beyond feeling victimized and create further suffering due to negative thoughts…
We need to respond with empathy, show unity through kindness and compassionate deeds.
The power of kindness is truly infinite.
KINDNESS IS THE PRAYER IN ACTION.
And this virus is curable… just still struggling to find a cure.
What makes humanity disappear in some humans?
Why hurt another life in any form?
Why does one life think themselves superior to the other?
Why does man think another life as less important?
What makes human become callous and cunning?
What can we do to change the equation?
If we are human we are responsible.
And must be accountable for our mistakes.
Our crimes often go unpunished
We think we have an edge over the innocent beings
Just because they cannot voice themselves out.
But remember justice is always served
By the creator’s hand.
Have a heart. Acknowledge life.
Behave compassionately. Be empathetic.
Treat life right. Be kind and humane.
Then & only then can we call ourself human.
There was a question asked to Ramana Maharishi
Question: What is the best way to treat others?
Ramana: There are no others.
This is the simple truth of life and living well.
If only we can see how we are but reflections of one another then a lot of discrimination will stop right then and there.
Discrimination is the root of conflict.
To think one life as above or below another creates inequalities in mutual treatment and socialization.
Remember to practice non discrimination in life and living.

How are you going to reach the tree of knowing?
The climb is not a cake walk
It is tough to balance on the way up or down.
You are at the base.
And yet you are not grounded.
In the knowing that sets you free.
At times you climb almost all the way.
But think twice about entering its core
For it is demanding.
Life never comes with a planbook
All happens in the living.
All is meant to flow along the way.
Things refine or distort
To change or transform
Into new paths of purpose.
All, a leap of faith
To reach beyond knowing.
Life is like a book
Every page may look the same
But holds a different reason to be
Every page has its own meaning.
Layered in words and symbols
Contexts that assume clarity
Once the book is read
Messages unbound itself through words.
Peel through the layers
Life stares at you in a heartbeat
All the same.
Yet pull back the layers
Mired in perceptions
Caked in personna
Smudged in ego
Made up with assumptions
Life assumes many forms
Shaping itself in the circumstances
Each unique and distinctive
In impressions and expressions.
Neither can it be replaced nor duplicated
Nature and nurture
Have their own role to play
In the circle of life
Judge not another as you are
For every life churns out
A different truth
Of it’s own existence.
Gratefulness is a gift of realization of the infinite.
It is an attitude worth cultivating
It is a a breakthrough towards transcendence
It is the ability to change the difficult to bearable.
It is a positive step in the transition
It is a sensing of faith trust and belief
It is a relief from hatred.
It is a pause to allow the hurt to heal.
It is a inner transformation.
It is a breathe in awareness
It is a creator of infinite abundance.
It is a move from the heart.
It is an awareness of potential flow
It is an acceptance of the almighty
It is a conscious awakening of the heart
It is an expression in thankfulness.
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.
I write to express myself my way.
“Many paths present itself.
Every path is infinite in possibilities.
The question is are we ready to walk the path?
And how we evolve, walking the path of choice?”
Time heals it all they say
And its so very true
So when we are in throes of torment
Trust time to pass to a better moment
When life throws a googly at you
And you are left flummoxed
That you just have no certain way
Trust time to move you on along the way
In trying moments of despair
When you are left fending for yourself
Know the answer is around the bend
Trust time to let itself mend.
For time is the answer
Be patient to let it pass
For no two moments are alike
Such is the eternal mystic of time.
In sensing the tranquillity within
In knowing the sounds of silence
In flowing freely in the moment
Is the dance of wonder and awe
Of the beauty in the being …
In the bliss of the bless.
Have you felt wronged or slighted in life… don’t despair.
For nature will make it right!
There is always a system of check and balance
For the law of nature aligns it all.
Simply know it may not always be the way you may plan…
For there is a truth beyond yours
That takes much more into account
You could simply be a piece in that puzzle.
So as you face destiny in the eye
As each trying moment unfolds
As you shed those countless tears
Simply know deliverance is near.
Allay your fears
Unfetter your spirit
Bring on the trust
That better lies ahead.
There is much in this self arranging world
We are yet to understand
Endless night wakes up to the light of dawn.
And Hope springs in with the sunshine
Your worst nightmare becomes a distant memory
For times change the order of things
Life moves on as the clocks tick
For Life is circle of days and nights
Despair not my friend
Sense hope by your side
In the darkest moments
Light is just a while away.
Written for a dear friend in dire need of trust and hope right now.
Keep the faith my friend …for faith is all there is.
