Good Morning, Good Day!

As you seek your purpose,May your path be clear.As you seek your health,May the healer be here.As you seek more wisdom,May the preacher reach near.May all that you seek,Seek you too.May you have a day full of mutual moments.

As if

Be present now.As if No future awaits.Learn new now.As if No second chance avails.Smile and laugh nowAs ifNo joy forever stays.Accept others nowAs ifNo one meets again.Calmly breathe in nowAs ifNo guarantee Of the next breath prevails.Live now,Love now,Let go now.

What upsets a person?

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 surpriseContinue reading “What upsets a person?”

May our country Treasure every tree,May our nation,Enlightened by logic be,And thrive with hope,In adversities,Resolutely cope.May my India,Like the Charkhaa, Keep moving,Awakened, 24 by 7,And bring to earthA glimpse of heaven,And be a blessing,To all the Living.

What do we really own?

As evening arrives…

May you silent the noises of worry and stress and fear. May you find your peace as you use words of hope and thoughts of love. May the mind retain and recall your favourite music, your favourite songs, your favourite flavours and beautiful memories.May your heart be filled with contentment and courage.

Wonder why

The squirrel seems Less playful,The wind seems Much heavier,The sun seems Much distant,The laughter seemsMuch hollower,The chat seemsMuch mundane,The debate seemsMuch effort,The meal seemsMuch familiar,The water seemsMuch nauseous,The heart seemsMuch numb,The mind seemsMuch dumb.It’s one of those days,Only music seemsMystical, magical,Music has it’s healing ways.

July

The rain clouds,Bring relief,To the lands,Thirsty and dry;It’s July.Nature seems to ask notWhen, what, who, where,And why:Some places flood,In July,Some are too parched,Still very dry.Clouds and life,Both are so random,Dear July,Please put everything,Back in tandem.

Vivid memories

We are all merely, A future memory.What sort of vivid one,Do we choose to be,Before we are done?Who ever you happen, To meet and to be with, Here and right now,Choose to be kind,Or quiet, if not loving.That’s how,They’ll remember you,Be kind to yourself too!

Quest

What have you questioned, About yourself lately?What have you deliberated on?About who you are, What do you want to do, With your limited time here?Are you spending time, Reflecting on How you want things To be different Or better about yourself?Are you willing to look, Into what you need, To change about yourself?Observe a fewContinue reading “Quest”
