Sip slower today

Hush the rush,Chai or coffee,Sip it slower.Now or noon, Evening or later,Find your Me-time, To take a breather.Hush the rush,Chai or coffee,Sip it slower.Relax deeper,A little longer,A few moments more,Inhale the aroma,Exhale Life’s drama.Hush the rush,Chai or coffee,Sip it slower.As you sip,Bring the cup,To your lip,Smile wide,Let worries slip,And grudges slide.Hush the rush,Chai or coffee,SipContinue reading “Sip slower today”

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, screamPine for what is not,Won’t let it just go,Oscillate to and fro-Pendulum-like, movingWithout progressing.As you observe,Surely you know,Back and forth, Forth and back,Ask your self,What in this lifeDo you really lack?

I’m not sure

I’m not sure What love is,But I know Kindness is pure.In the end,What changes the story, What matters totally,Is how well you treatThe one you claim to loveIn thought, word & deed.

How far did you succeed today?

How was the day? You had a successful day if you laughed a lot.You achieved considerably if you stayed focused.You did great if you helped a few persons.You did well if you spoke your truth no matter what.You were doing fine if you stood up for yourself and stated how offended you felt.You were rightContinue reading “How far did you succeed today?”

Only

Only when tears overflow,We regain our balance,And then does peace glow.Only when fears We do face and overcome,Does living lifeSeem worthy and awesome.Despite the impediments Continue your journey onward.Despite the highs and lows, Our gears we quickly change,We drive and move forwardThrough Life’s Complete and inescapable ‘Good and bad’ range.Let go the tears.Face your fears.ChangeContinue reading “Only”

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.

Please bring

Please bring along A new song, Also, let love To us belong. Please bring with you A good news few, Our smiles,chuckles,Our laughter too. Please hold together Health and hope, And the more Peace you ensure, The more we’ll cure . Please shower us With some sunshine,In all that we pursue,Make our timing divine. PleaseContinue reading “Please bring”

A thorn…

If a thorn pricked,Hurt and bled you terribly,Would you intentionally Put yourself through That prick again? Then why let a memoryOf a day bygone A survived, bad, Injurious experience, Revisit, re-prick,Rehurt you repeatedly?Let go the past,Protect your heart,From hurting.Heal yourself:Replace the thorn,By revisiting Re-touching the petalsOf only the best Bygone moments.Let go gloom,May your heartContinue reading “A thorn…”

Daily

Days pass byLife goes on.What seems most important now, in retrospect, may or may not be of that much essence, that much consequence. For every ‘most important thing’ there is an option.Train your mind to dwell on Option B as seriously as Option A.Musts and shoulds also need to be let gone.Every moment is aContinue reading “Daily”

Re-think and relax about health

Walk down any hospital ward.You will find patients of all shapes, sizes, ages with different maladies. A sportsperson has a spine surgery, so does an accident victim and so does a housewife bending to pick up toys – spine surgery when she has had a slip disc. A person who religiously did Yoga, went toContinue reading “Re-think and relax about health”

The Quality of Patience

Nothing can be built in a day.Not an individual’s character, neither careers, nor businesses, nor lives, neither cities, nor countries.Nothing can be built in a haste.Not a home, nor a design, a device, not a game, nor a song or a tele-series.Nothing can be learnt in a day. Not a subject discipline, nor playing music,Continue reading “The Quality of Patience”

A morning wish

Temporal time ticks,We move, as it kicks.Breeze in the hair,We pick a warm wear.Neither time,Nor breeze,Do we see,But one shows us,Our lifetime limit,The other shows us,What’s it to be free.Use temporal time well,But use leisure better.Enjoy the breeze, The outdoors and The good weather.May there be a zing, Right under your wing,As you follow dreams,AndContinue reading “A morning wish”

Enter November!

The month eleventh,Cool in the desert,Cold elsewhere,Freezing minus ten,Speeding to year-end.Glance back perhapsThe time did lapse,Memories we made,Some of laughters Some of regrets.We lost some, We found some,People gone, People come.Thanksgiving month,Gratitude to hold,Tomorrows to behold,With fervour,Enter November,Let’s thank all those,We forgot to remember.

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 heightsThrough our open, Un-burdened, mind,Always to ourself remind:To keep our thoughts,Continue reading “Brought nothing, lost nothing”

Have a laughterful day and a happy morning.

Laugh a lot more, May your laughter,Just nonstop pour,On laughter increase,Your score more.Let laughter,Reach your core,Like the rushing,Waves on the shore.Life’s not forever,It’s now or never,Genuine, laughter pureWill many ails cure.

Step by step

Choose to lose negativity Step by step,Improve your thoughts,If you find your mind,Spiralling into ‘rewind’.Past is not to live in,But to revisit,The best memories,Hidden within.If a memory bad or sadOr a fear or a tearVisit and upsetSigh and be clearYou won’t be their host,Don’t into them be lost.Physically move You must removeThat brain chemicalYou aloneContinue reading “Step by step”

Dualities of Life

When you are in a somber mood, meditate on these words. Just sit thinking of the unexpected in life that throws us out of gear.

Disentangle

From little to more,We are entangledIn daily lifeOur mind and heartTired and mangled.Take a deep breath,Now with force exhale,And let it all go,Repeat again and again,Till you knowThe heaviness is gone,You don’t feel Overwhelmed and low.To yourself Just remind,To:Disentangle, Distance,Detach.You can’t alwaysYourself grind,Free yourself From burdens,From ‘Musts’ And ‘Shoulds’Do not your mind, So strictly bind.LifeContinue reading “Disentangle”
