First day of October

October bring all that’s happier!
First day gone,
Will October bring
A joyful song to sing?

First day gone,
Will October bring
A new friend to ping?

First day gone,
Will October bring
A reason to keep smiling?
Four more months- the last quarter begins

What upsets a person?

Teach yourself to adjust your thinking. Have minimal expectations. Be flexible in expecting the unexpected.
We are upset and disturbed many a times.
Who upsets us?
Obvious answer is people around us.
But is it the right answer?
Nope.
Our expectations, when not met, upset us.

So if we want to remain calm and peaceful, what should we observe? What should we change?

Our expectations and our company.

Expect less or nothing and genuine people will surprise you. Bond more with those who share strong values and ethics.

Move away from toxic, selfish, greedy opportunists, using silence and detachment. Send them light and forgiveness as you detach.

Your peace and calm are your choice.
Your expectations are your choice.
Our life is our breath. Do breathing exercises to calm your chatter-ful mind.

The unexpected

Moments unexpected,
Make memories strong,
That haunt us long.

Some make us,
Some shake us,
Some form a sweet song,
Some form tears lifelong.

Moments unexpected,
Make memories strong,
That haunt us long.
Memories…of the unexpected

What do we really own?


Our thoughts
Our words
Our actions
Our voice
Our decisions
Our feelings
Our body
Our mistakes
Our heart
Our soul
Our talent
Our efforts
Our wishes
Our Voice

Nothing else.

Ponder on this.

I believe, I trust

Success
Success is the result of our genuine talent, sincere effort and strong decision to not give up before we achieve our goal. Yes. But then how is it that only few succeed while many do not, despite of the talent, effort and determination? 

We do reflect- oh the timing was not right, or some stroke of bad luck...etc.

I feel above and beyond the obvious, there are four more things- our success is attained as it is:

First, God is answering someone else's prayer.

Two, our success is fruit of our ripened past good karma.

Three, our success is a blessing recieved.

Four, our success is pre determined, our path calls us, as we are chosen to be instrumental in accomplishing larger designs for the larger good.

So is our success something to be proud of, or not?
I think actually it is better to keep our grace and have a gratitude-filled heart towards a universal supreme energy and understand our success as a rich and truly humbling experience when we count how many people indirectly or directly helped us get this success, get us here.
So ours, is then, the role of an instrument and to be chosen as an instrument we may feel gratitude, exercise detachment and show affection.
We must do what we do to
feel alive with excitement while doing our work, feel alive with joy when we accomplish, live in that moment fully and then detach and move on to something different and new- for a rolling stone gathers no moss, and well, we cannot cling to one success forever just like we cannot keep on eating sugar forever!

Taste success, devour it, savour it, then 'gargle' with humbleness and gratitude, cleaning your mind, heart and soul and keep moving on...
Move on to do more, to new beginnings!

Have faith

Watch flowers bloom,
Listen the birds sing,
Bump into bunnies
Scurrying and hurrying,
Dancing and hip-hopping.

Rise and shine,
With love and faith,
Of all the divine,
And in God's trust
May your soul be refined,
And in blessed love,
May you remain entwined.
Remain blessed

Closure

In the beginning, is the end.
At some point of time,
Its just time,
To leave a job,
To leave a relation,
To leave a nation.

Some by choice,
So we may rejoice,
While some endings
Just are meant,
Pre written, predestined.

Perhaps a reluctant exit,
A heart-heavy bye bye,
At crossroads, we arrive.

Eyes we may half close,
Refusing to face
The uncertainty upfront,
Though questions chase,
No answers to hunt.

Then tears escape,
And sighs release
Lips we may seal,
Quiet and low we feel.

Each closure
Brings emptiness too,
Ends a phase of life,
Perhaps long overdue?

Look towards the new,
Watch the morning light,
The dawn adorns
A slightly golden hue.
Soak in the sun's rays,
May your energy renew.

You are enough,
To take care of you,
To yourself, do remind
To seek and look,
You will surely find,
Hope is within you,
Courage exists there too.
Give yourself quiet time to do proper closures

Migrant

Smile more
The winged explorer,
The sky-migrant,
The global glider
The borderless flyer
The bird
Tell me,
Do you look back
To your first nest,
To your first branch,
To your first tree?
Do you only fly onward,
Do you only move forward,
Never glance backward,
Never sigh,
Just fly high?

Me too, a migrant,
Between cities,
Between tongues,
Between thoughts,
Between my origin
And final destination,
Here and now, on earth,
Only pursuing
Peace is worth,
I perch for a while,
I just have one lifetime,
So, I search for peace,
From mile to mile,
And ultimately realise
Peace itself perches
In my heart and my smile.



Peace is within.

Hope

Hold Hope
Hope:
It's a sweet nothing
Yet just about
All you've got,
It's everything.

Hope heals
The heaviness
Of bitter reality,
It is so cooling
On a life burning.

Hope enables one,
To go on, to cope.
Life's not always
A walk on tight-rope,

Hope revives
And reminds;
'Believe,
Joy too,
Lies within
Life's scope.
If you keep Hope alive,
Hope will keep you alive.
Gallery

So what now?

Let's say,
What you did dream,
What you did chase,
Was a slip between
The cup and the lip.

You may sulk, scream
Pine for what is not,
Won't let it just go,
Oscillate to and fro-
Pendulum-like, moving
Without progressing.


As you observe,
Surely you know,
Back and forth,
Forth and back,
Ask your self,
What in this life
Do you really lack?

Only

Only when tears overflow,

We regain our balance,

And then does peace glow.

Only when fears

We do face and overcome,

Does living life

Seem worthy and awesome.


Despite the impediments

Continue your journey

onward.

Despite the highs and

lows,

Our gears we quickly

change,

We drive and move forward

Through Life's

Complete and inescapable

'Good and bad' range.


Let go the tears.
Face your fears.
Change your gears.

Mondays come and go.
Just move forward today.


Move on!

Heard?

Hush,
Heard the whisper?
A sound softer,
But so much sweeter?

Hush,
Heard the whisper?
A sound quieter,
Yet so much truer?

Hush,
Heard the whisper?
A sound fainter,
Yet so much wiser?

Hush,
Hear the whisper:
A sound, a murmur,
That's
Softer,
Clearer,
Fainter,
Sweeter,
Truer,
Wiser.


Listen to your heart's whispers today.
Hear your heart whisper…

Heartfelt

All that is true to self is heartfelt.

All that is heartfelt is sensitive.

All that is sensitive is caring.

All that is caring is loving.

All that is loving is gentle.

All that is gentle is delicate.

Like the breeze

Gently touches

The soft petals

And makes the flower sway,

Lead a heartfelt

Gentle day today.

The final destination

Rishi Nitya Pragyaji.
Om Shanti. Om Shanti. Om Shanti.
Reaching to our origin.
Shunya, the eternal,
Shunya, the infinite.

Reaching to our origin.
Shunya and Silence,
Silence, the endless deep,
Death: pre-destined,
Eternal sleep.

Reaching to our origin,
Shunya, the infinite
Silence, the ultimate
Eternal Peace.
Om Shanti.
Om Shanti.
Om Shanti.

On this day

Good Morning
Make peace,
Decide to deliver
The promise.

With ease,
Say what matters,
Let go grudges,
Just release.

Choose to cherish
The choice of ease
The choice of peace
The choice of release
Choose.
Have an easy day.
Good Morning.
Choose well.

Morning!

Think high
Usher in a mission,
That takes you close,
To realise your vision!

Usher in a resolution,
That guides your move,
And your every motion.

Usher in a celebration,
2023 is few weeks away,
Optimistic, do stay! 

Make it a magical day, 
Do your very best,
In every possible way,
And then let go, rest
Accept God's will, pray!
Usher in new ways, and be
at the
‘Top of the world’
Today!

Brought nothing, lost nothing

Born empty handed,

Leave empty-handed.

Live with love and light.
When here we landed,
Weren't you and me,
Both born empty-handed?

Then let's live life,
Without hate and strife,
Unassuming and light,
Choosing love:
Not might over right,
Decide none to exploit.

Lets feel from
The depths of our heart,
And reach great heights
Through our open,
Un-burdened, mind,
Always to ourself remind:
To keep our thoughts,
Words and deeds aligned.

In your presence,
In your vibes,
Let each creature,
Great and small,
Of all colours,
Of features all,
Feel you are harmless,
Listen to your heart's
Compassionate call.
Make compassion your passion.

Disentangle

From little to more,
We are entangled
In daily life
Our mind and heart
Tired and mangled.

Take a deep breath,
Now with force exhale,
And let it all go,
Repeat again and again,
Till you know
The heaviness is gone,
You don't feel
Overwhelmed and low.

To yourself
Just remind,
To:
Disentangle,
Distance,
Detach.
You can't always
Yourself grind,
Free yourself
From burdens,
From 'Musts'
And 'Shoulds'
Do not your mind,
So strictly bind.

Life takes care
Of itself,
There are times
To put in every effort,
To be in the front,
And at times,
It's your moment,
To let go,
With grace bow,
To hold back,
Withdraw and rest,
And pray for the best.
This too shall pass

Being just me

I choose, I decide
No I didn't prioritize 
Folding clothes
Cooking
House keeping.

I wrote verses.
My apologies
For fresh fruit,
Salad meals
And just washed
Unfolded, unironed
Clothes.

I deliberated
Over lyrics,
Rhythm, rhymes
And word tricks.

To sweetly suggest
Being a woman
I can multi-task
Comes with a risk:

I need my rest,
My 'me-time',
To hum my rhyme.

What I can,
What I will,
What I won't
I decide,
You don't.
Me-time is MINE

What if…

Comforting thoughts
If we've lost
A near and dear one,
May we find within
Patience and solace,
That they're resting
In a better place

What if
Death was for them
Rest and relief?
They could not bear
The suffering,
Take not the pain,
So left this life
And the soul reached
A beautiful realm
Much greater, higher.

Let us perhaps
Hold this belief,
To lessen the sorrow,
A comforting thought
Maybe we can borrow.

Accept fully,
This journey
To the other realm
Follows cosmic time,
Not an age in number
As in temporal time.

I walk

Footprints on the sands of Time
I walk.

Sometimes,
I walk away 
From an uninvited
Walk-in visiting memory,

Sometimes,
I walk
To reach nowhere,
But to walk away 
From the need 
To reach 
Somewhere.

Sometimes I walk
Away from expectations
Unreasonable, stifling.

I walk
Miles and miles.

Sometimes I walk
To sort out 
My own journey,
Meet my thoughts halfway,
Question myself, 
How happy was I 
To see them again?

Which thought 
Would I like,
To accompany 
As I walk my path
Of moving, temporary,
 Ever-changing life?

'Who' do I 
Hold hands with,
As I walk free?
 




Eklaa chaalo re…

Compassion

May all choose Compassion
Halt a moment,
Stop! Save a child,
Listen to the lament,
Life for love is meant,
Rise above discontent,
Revise your intent,
And choose to be,
The One to help
To nurture and care,
And let each of us
To the 'other'
Be truly'God-sent'.

Reflect calmly to find your balance

Meditate to find
The balance
Be mindful
Of how you feel
Keep your mind
Very still.

Meditate to de-stress,
To worries release,
To realign,
Receive peace
And reconnect
With the Divine.






Draw the line.

Life is not about just having. Life is more about living. Life is more about experiencing rather than accumulating. Money is no doubt very essential for enabling empowerment. There are no two things about it. But to live less in order to earn more and just have more at the cost of too much stress and no fun is where we need to truly reflect and slow down on the chase, if we have inadvertently fallen into it in the first place. Life is more when you follow your heart with your mind open and in control. Decide where to draw the line. Its your life and your time on the planet is your greatest gift to live it fully and fulfillingly. Balance is the key. But do not wait too long to do what you really feel like. Do not keep pushing away your heart’s desires too far, too long. Go live well and live more💝.

One day at a time

When in life,
There's no rhythm
There's no rhyme
No laughters chime,
A tear glistens
You can't even sigh,
Your breath feels muffled
Each time you inhaled
It felt like an effort
And you struggled,
At that juncture,
When every nerve
You feel will rupture,
Just be in silent plea
Really pray to the Divine
and sense the silence
And hear the quiet,
Say to self,
One day, at a time.






Shifting your thoughts

It has been a challenge and quite some watchfulness was required in becoming an observer of my thoughts and detaching from them and choosing which ones were unwelcome. But the effort has been worthwhile. I am sure with time, we can change the thoughts and see the extraordinary effect of the shift within and without!
