Completing 49 years

Thank you Life for 49 13 Octobers
Is aging chronological

Or spiral?

Aging is random,
In moments few,
Our mental age grew.

Is aging greying
Or growing?
It is both for some,
Making use of this privilege is true understanding.

Is aging resting

Your case,

Or resisting?

Aging is building a case

Singular, exceptional
and then resting:
For posterity, be inspiring.

Is aging sweetening
Or embittering?

Aging is a little of all,
Like so many shades
Of a shedding
Maple leaf at Fall.


Aging is choosing

To remain affectionate,

Yet to be detached,

From life's disarray,

Messy at times,

But that's life, anyway.

Aging is being

And becoming

More inwardly beautiful,

And outwardly

Silently observing,

And wisdom-gathering,

Aging is a chance for

Telling tales more,

Half stories uttering,

In whispers, in words,

Musical and gentle,

Coloured with meaning,

Aging is poem-ing

In rhythm and rhymes,

Like the morning chimes.

One more 13th October
I am blessed to see
I thank my Papa and Mummy
Always in deep gratitude for my most supportive mother.
Aging is reliving random memories

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

Understanding Surrender

The usual understanding of surrender is feeling desperate, feeling helpless and giving up, and turning to a higher/superior power for resolution/help/ support/miracle.
To a great extent, this understanding of surrender is true for all of us.

But one can go deeper and understand that real and total surrender are at a different level.
After putting in every possible effort and failing and feeling helpless, due to any situation, circumstance or human behaviour, one has to go through the feelings of shock, disillusionment, helplessness, sorrow and acceptance of many things, such as, accepting that one is not in control of what life has in store, that nothing comes with guarantee, that one is not strong and powerful enough to overcome every setback; but most of all one then REALISES that seeking strength and bowing to a higher entity in peace, with a completely humbled heart, and a calm sort of detached disposition with being wiser of ALL human predicament, and turning to both faith and hope in some kind of divine intervention, is Surrender.

To be desperate, feel helpless, pray and plead and beg to the higher entity in the hour of sorrow or need is not actual surrender. That is mere desperation.

Actual, real surrender is total acceptance and wisdom of one's limitations and realisation that now only someone or something beyond the human realm can make a difference.

Understanding and realising the true essence of surrender truly is freeing ourself from misery, and believing that a kind, higher energy is at work, that may ease things if you let go and keep faith and hope and move inwards in peace and prayer, connecting with that higher realm of energy.

Happy Teacher’s Day

Should I thank you life?
Should I thank you Life,
For what you have taught me?
It is irreversible and unforgettable.
You give no second chance
There is no time
For a backward glance.

You have set
The toughest lessons
And sudden twists
And unexpected turns
And all this
On slippery and steep pathways,
With no promises of getaways.

You give no hint
Of the next test
So brutal are your methods of teaching,
So Life, tell me
How do I thank you,
For being my ruthless,
Ultimate Guru?

The answer-less questions of life

Who are in pain,
And may respite gain.
May they heal for sure,
Let's wish all will cure,
From our heart,
Prayerful, kind and pure.

Good Morning!
May you hold
Gratitude for all
You are blessed with.

Come, September

Experience the shades of your emotions. Keep them light or bright.
Come September,
Like a dry leaf
Shake off
Everyone's grief.

Come September,
Make life better,
Help everyone shrug,
Each big and small grudge

Come September,
Help all remember,
You precede October,
And the last quarter,
Of this year,
And it's time
To acknowledge
That in the Fall,
Nature let's go
All dried and old,
Bares itself to the cold

Likewise, September,
Let everyone's heart Begin to clear,
Of worry and fear,
Of a frown or a hidden tear
And await calmly
The end of the year.
Turn over a new leaf…

Some form a sweet song,
Some form tears lifelong.

As evening arrives…

Choose to visualise rainbows
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.
Ensure the mind sees the silver lining

Wonder why

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

The other half of 2022 arrives


To sun-hot May,
The summer-bringer,
In days few,
We bid adieu.

How very soon,
Arrives June,
Along comes the monsoon,
May the rains grace,
Cool the land too,
Welcome, 'warm' welcome,
To the second half
Of the year 2022.

Lets remind ourselves,
In New Year resolutions
What did we decide,
But simply couldn't do?

Its never too late,
Begin today,
It's still May.

The Art of Worrying

The Art of Worrying
A nagging worry

Might be an opportunity

To bring about change

And turn the worry

Into a personal change,

Take responsibility,

To improve self,

Change a 'given' belief,

Re-question, redefine

What bothers you and why.

Think beyond the clouds,

Of anxiety and worry,

They may shower upon you,

A refreshing insight,

Or wisdom anew.
See every anxiety and worry as a call for change.

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!

Uncertainty is okay

Wait…
Uncertainty:
It is a gap,
A blur,
The distance,
Between the answer,
And its question.

It is the time
When we have to sit back,
Not knowing,
What's next in line,
Feeling fear and lack.
Its best to wait,
And let the universe,
Gather its intelligence,
And put the best stuff,
Together for us.

Uncertainty is quite
An humbling experience.
It makes us patient,
And lean on faith,
And seek divine guidance.

Just breathe.
Just be.
May the universe conspire,
And may you wait out;
For those who wait patiently,
Also serve.

Accept uncertainty,
Let life unfold.
In the face of uncertainty,
Be stoic, be bold.

When for no reason

Sometimes for no obvious   
Or explicable reason,
You may just feel
Your heart is heavier,
Your mood is low,
Your reflexes are slow.

Usually around this time,
Same day, same time,
In the past,
You have faced,
A devastating setback.

The heart has not forgotten,
The mind has not overcome,
But you have moved on.

At such moments,
It helps to do Pranayam.
Meditate.
Be gentle with yourself.
Do some new artwork.
Read a new poem.
Smell the flowers.
Direct your attention
To chanting or prayers
And observe meditation.

Reward yourself
With care and compassion.
Instead of avoiding
The feeling, be with it.
Accept it.
Improve on self-preservation
And self-care.

This too shall pass.
Hope you have a good life ahead.
Nature helps healing, so does Silence

The only control

Refuse to be run over by circumstances
In every difficult situation in life, the only way to be in charge is to control your mind,control your tongue and control your actions.
It is smarter to be more in control of yourself than to try and control others.
Silencing the mind and overcoming negativity, overthinking and judgemental presumptions, are all necessary in trying times.

In the end, its all about this:
You can't control others, you can't control the world, so just learn to control yourself.

The power lies within.
Hold your voice until you need to use your roar
Gallery

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

The Art of Leaving

Leaving is an art.

Smilingly depart.

Not all you meet qualify

For a heart-to-heart.

You can't verify

Any person or relation

'Beforehand'

Only afterwards,

You realise

How genuine they are.

Time reveals,

Always, and also

Time heals.

Leave, don't grieve,

Don't pine

For what is not,

Don't in Moha-maya

Get so caught,

Shallow human selfishness

Has no limit,

Nor measure,

Gather yourself,

Choose a closure.

The 'art of leaving',

Means moving on,

Into new worlds.

In new beginnings,

Do start believing.

Topsy

Not a great morning, I say, but do what you can and just pray.
Ces`t la vie!
The world is at times
A bit topsy, a lot turvy,
For you or me
Or her or him,
The morning may seem,
A bit like
Coffee gone cold,
A bit like
A slightly burnt cookie,
That too without cream.

Your mood may seem low,
The sun may glare
And pale your glow,
Life may bring you,
Blow after blow.

If this be such a day,
I wish good luck
Comes your way,
Hope all the odds
You do overcome,
And find solutions,
Where there seemed none.
You’ll get there…be back in control soon! This too shall pass.

For some of us

May their soul rest in eternal peace
For some of us

From this day, today,

This world will never be

The same again.

A few words unsaid,

A few tears unshed,

Will forever remain.

For some of us now on,

A hollow feeling,

An emptiness,

A sense of loss,

A long, quiet silence,

Will forever remain.

This world will never be

The same again.

To those 'some of us'

Whose hearts have broken,

I say, let us bid

Our final farewell,

To the dear departed,

Who now lies in peace

Rises to God,

No longer in pain.


Without them,

Our world will never be

The same again,

As they left quietly,

On the final journey

Rising to Paradise,

Welcomed by eternity-

Leaving with us,

Pure, precious values,

And pearls of wisdom,

And unforgettable

Moments and memories.

To those 'some of us'

Inconsolable, tearful,

Today in this unfamiliar

'Never the same again'

Wide wide world,

Those 'some of us'

Feel their absence in

This familiar homeland,

As they try their grief

To stoically withstand,

I too, with them, stand,

And pray that always

God holds their hand.

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.

Worth

Is the thought worthwhile or worthless?
As a thought visits,
Check its worth
Allow its presence
If it is of positive
And of good essence.

Worthless thoughts
You must discard.

A thought worthwhile
Is the one that
Brings you peace,
Or a smile.
Me and my thought

Who are you?

Be clear. To fly high, the mind, like the sky, ought to be clear.
What are you? 
You are your mind,
You heart, body, soul.

You are the ‘are’
Not yet the ‘were’.

So you are:
The present,
The breathing 'you'.

You are the time you have left with you.

So when you ‘do’ something,
With your body,mind, heart and soul,
You actually give yourself whole.

To what?
That you decide.
How you dedicate your life.
Your focus,
Your time here,
You either 'spend'
or you 'devote'.

For what use,
What purpose,
You choose.

I’m not sure

😇
I'm not sure 
What love is,
But I know
Kindness is pure.

What changes the story,
What matters totally,
Is how well you treat
The one you claim to love
In thought, word & deed.
Love without integrity is no love

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…

Hold peace today

Today ensure

Words are not flung,

No heart is with

Harsh words stung.


A thousand splendid

Truths we realise

When we observe silence,

And choose to be wise.


Affirm to yourself

once, twice, thrice,

Words are over-priced,

If at all I speak,

Only goodwill

And blessings,

My words ought to

Either spread or seek.


Words are meant to be

In prayers sung,

Silence is

My mother tongue,

Quiet is

My other tongue.

Speak only if you can improve upon the silence and add real value by uttering words.

This too shall heal

However lost and hurt you feel, remember impermanence.
The fact of impermanence

We ought to hold

Onto closely,

Especially awarefully,

Consciously, every day.


Impermanence in life

Does remind us

That injuries

of the heart,

body and mind

Do not hurt forever.


This new injury

Feels heavy right now,

Unbearable somehow,

But its not permanent,

Soon it will heal.



Always remember

We are all temporary,

What happens to us

Does end, does pass,

And so shall we.
Each experience, each moment is Fleeting…

When you laugh

Laughter beautifies you!
When you laugh,
Your heart sings,
Your laughter sounds
Like a bell that rings,
Your soul sighs
And your mind heals,
How light it feels!

Like a ray,
You spread joy
Mile to mile,
When you smile😊.

Smile and laugh more,
Increase your
Joy score,
Hope you aren't being
A grumpy bore!
Just laugh it off, whatever it is. Choose your battles wisely; let go the rest.

This weekend…

Am I paying attention in creating my legacy?
Pay attention to how
Aligned are your thoughts with your words and deeds.

Pay attention to how
Refined are your thoughts, words and deeds.

Pay attention to how
Sincere are your thoughts, words and deeds.

Pay attention to how
Positive are your thoughts, words and deeds.

Pay attention to
Who you are.

Who are you?
You are your thoughts, words and deeds.

Pay attention to yourself.

Be:
Aligned.
Refined.
Sincere.
Positive.
Be GENUINE!

Find joy today

Joy is in fleeting moments
Connect with Nature,
Find joy
In clouds taking
On shapes,moving, changing.

Find dance
In leaves and flowers swaying.

Find tunes and songs,
In birds chirping
And streams gurgling
And the breeze whooshing.

Find joy.
Sigh out worry,
Breathe in joy.

Have a day filled
With joyful moments.
Whatever bothers you, just let it go…As Maya Angelou says,’Joy is a freedom. It helps a person to find his/her own liberation.

2022

Step in to 2022 with a dash of lemony zest!
Think new
Learn new
Speak words few
Actions positive,
Kindness do renew

Its 2022

May you be surrounded
By fragrant flowers,
Blessed with natural
Healing powers.

Its 2022

May you decide to rise
Out of the past
Let go, live in the Now,
Question less, use less
Of 'Why me', and just be.

Its 2022

Make peace,
Courageously say 'Adieu'
To all that happened,
Before 2022.

Yes, its just
Another morning,
Until you choose
To make it new
By what 'new' you do.

Blossom and thrive

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.

What’s better?

What's better?
A smile tugged
Deep in your heart,
A tickling hope
Or 'having' it all?

What's better?
An aspiration,
A sense of wonder
Or feeling empty,
Though seemingly possessing stuff,
More and more,
'having' it all?


From the mindset
That 'having' it all
Is happiness,
You chase stuff to 'own'.
You never find
Your purpose, your call.

From the heart-set
Of 'pining' for more
Or pining for
What is not,
You set yourself
For whining,
That is all.


What's better?
Warm connections,
Sincere effort shining,
A sense of being content,
Or a feeling of lack
How much ever you shop and 'have' and own?


What's better?

Having a meaningful purpose and clarity of what you want to do in your life journey or just accumulating belongings?

Shrouds have no pockets.

Having more is not living more.
What's better? Dwell on it.
Think…

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 to the Gym, also ends up with cancer like an obese person who suffered genetic obesity or hormone imbalance. None of us can escape pain.

So, in the end, do reflect and rethink how far one ought to be obsessed with one's shape, size, diet and lifestyle?

Reflect on health in being accepting and content as well as realistic. Live life's each moment fully in how you enjoy little things, have fun, do some mischief, sing a song along, walk on the beach,and enjoy your midnight snack with a grin that is a mile long.

That is NOT to say do not care or be mindful of your diet and exercise.Please DO CARE.


This is to say, do NOT be obsessed and fret about it.
Have your Que sera sera moments and follow your heart.

At times, its ok to leave alone some issues for time to mend, its ok to accept life with all its discomforts- physical, mental and emotional.You have to choose your battles.You need to tred light on your own heart.

Sit with your heartache.
Sit with your sadness. Feel your feelings.
Grow closer to yourSELF.

Breathe.

And then, hum-que sera sera, whatever will be, will be, the future's not ours to see.
Breathe. Just be.

Happy Day

Make your mind 
A place of worship
Enlightened, carrying
Thoughts very kind.

Make your heart
A loveful shrine,
Blissful, thankful
Radiating the Divine.




The Light within, the Light without.

Come, December

Come, December.
Come, December.

Let’s wind up
Moments heavier,
Better un-remembered,
Hopes unanswered,
Souls departed,
Tears shed.

Let’s pack away
The Covid taandav
It did one truth endow:
We all go,
Here we may be-
A year more,
A week less,
A day more
Or a few decades,
For sure,
We do not know.

Come December,
Help us overcome.

Come December,
Bring a cool 2022
With tides better,
Bring laughter
Lots of joy too;

Let’s love greater,
Let’s all live
Closer and on lesser.

Come December,
Help us vow
And always remember
To add love everywhere
We come and go.

Let's pledge too,
To preserve Nature,
Multiply laughter
To be kinder,‘humaner’
Make our 2022 lovelier
While we are here.

Life is a gift, unwrap gently, accept or change, live fully!

Good morning. Today: Use your wings

Fly higher, stronger, longer.
Imagine

Imagine
Flying on the wings
Of 'YES' thoughts,
Think of great things!

Imagine
Flying on the wings
Of positivity
And all it brings,
Seek skies beyond dreams!

Imagine
Flying on the wings,
Of peach pink pages
Filled of words
Of great possibility,
of realised potentiality.

Just let go thoughts,
That are self-limiting,
Break free,
Grow and bow,
Like a tree!

Envision,
A multitude of views,
Thoughts,
In all positive hues,
Words,
In many shades of ink,
Eyes wonder-wide,
See all ideas link.


Welcome to this world,
Of imagination unfurled,
Get up, realise it all,
Plonked on a sofa,
Dare not sit curled!

Rise, arise, awake,
This morning
Is as good as you make!
Make it better,
Imagine now-
How,how,how,
Go go, go now!
Best morning ever!

Your time, your day

Do today what your heart always desired…today is just for YOU.
Your day 
Your time
Don't waste it
Away, away, away,

Be happy,
Say happy,
Do happy.

Life's happening,
With it, just
Swing and sway,
It's your time,
Your day.

Do what
You denied
For yourself
Yesterday;
You said 'later'
Your vague wish,
Make it true,
Make it come
Your way!

Don't leave it
Until later,
Into a future 'someday',
You said 'tomorrow',
Your 'Tomorrow'
Has come today,
Well have it your way,
Make today your day!
Time flies.

This dawn…

Today:
May the ill heal,
May their pain lessen,
May they strength regain,
May they positive remain.

May the tired feel fresh,
May the sad find a smile,
May the angry be mellow,
May the day go well,
For each friend,
And every fellow.

May the pink & yellow
Of Loving kindness
Gently in each heart
Grow and overflow.
Support those around you…with a smile!

Saal Mubaarak

May joy fill up your heart!
May your new year 
Be filled with cheer
Your mind crystal clear
Lots of lovely time
Spent happily with
Your near and dear!
Wishing you
A happy, healthy
And prosperous
New year!

Enter November!

Are you shawl-ready?
The month eleventh,
Cool in the desert,
Cold elsewhere,
Freezing minus ten,
Speeding to year-end.

Glance back perhaps
The 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.

Gratitude is the best attitude

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.

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 sad
Or a fear or a tear
Visit and upset
Sigh and be clear
You won't be their host,
Don't into them be lost.

Physically move
You must remove
That brain chemical
You alone can
Get back your groove.

Dualities of Life

In trying times, try trying harder.You can do it.
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. In your thoughts,  reflect on how often we are imbalanced in our understanding of  the dualities of life. We seem to only want the good, the happy, the wellness/the healthy, the easy/ the comfortable, the best. Naturally. We must. That is absolutely normal and a must.
But when the co-existing dualities occur- the bad, the sad, the illnesses,the difficult times, the challenges, the disturbing scenarios, the unexpected: are you somewhat upset or totally upset? Are you unwilling to accept or just unprepared? Do you wish the bad times just go away?
But the dualities are there-they are just there.NO ESCAPE. The other side of the coin is just THERE.
Finding your equanimity and balance helps, and accepting what you cannot change and changing what you can, is within your means as you are bestowed with the powers language and discretion: our two empowering tools as humans.
So, go with the flow. Be patient in hard times, and use your good times to become better, with constant self-improvisation.

You can choose. You can do it.
Self improvise!

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

A day full of possibilities

Through small actions
Just think each hour,
Within your power,
What can you do?

You've 7,200 minutes
Plant seeds
Of flowering trees
Just for minutes 15
To find one morning,
Smiling flowers 16!

Left with 7185 minutes
Imagine how much life
You can fill in these!

Have a positively action-filled
And happening day.

May you choose to:
Nourish, accomplish,
and flourish!
Take care.
