I -Salt and Sugar

     M            

I am like Salt & Sugar without go,

Dissolving into many flavours of life,

Yet have an identity which is only mine,

My flexibility is not my weakness,

It is the strenght of my character,

It liberates me yet not let me lose my uniqueness .

I wrote this long time back. Today just felt like sharing again

Stillness

 

M

 

wp-image-86556698

I use to stand here and think,

And run to act upon the ideas

Today I stand here empty of any thoughts

Just marvelling at the vastness of the Sun

Brightening the horizon while fading away

Spreading the stillness till the next day

I love the stillness sipping inside me

I am no more in a rush to run with my thoughts

As it is a never-ending chase where none wins.

MOHANJI & me 

M

On the day of Gurupurnima, simple words of thanks to MOHANJI, the GURU whose consciousness connectivity is itself a journey to fearless living.

Silence only silence all around me

Today I am alone just with me

But I don’t feel bored or lonely

           Today I am at peace inside and outside of me

           Today I am the journey and destination for me

           Today I am the only reason for actions taken by me

           Today I am the result of thoughts generated by me

           Today I own the responsibility of BEING me

The change may not be absolute or error free

At times I am tempted towards my earlier me

Surrounded by self doubts want to give up on new me

But then silently dispelling darkness within me

Filling pure white light all around me

Comes my GURU , my guide MOHNJI

              He is not present enough to touch  his feet

             Or to feel his hands blessing me

            That is the beauty and magic of his personality

             HE keeps the lamp of guidance burning for all beings

            His consciousness invisible blanket of connectivity

            The moment of Silence when even the breath is still

           Is the time of awareness of being one with MOHANJI

          HIS grace guide us towards the infinity

(me is not ego but the CONSCIOUS)

A /एक  ★ Single Power ★ Part -I

M

A drop of water shakes hand with others,

United they give life to the mother Earth,

Forms the springs, the rivers and the ocean,

Evaporates one by one to form the clouds,

Then pour down in the form of rain,

A drop is what farmer’s hopes are pinned upon,

A drop is sigh of relief for those worried face,

It is also the reason for the loss of precious lives

   ( farmers suicides are the most unfortunate , and can be avoided if the Government and non-governmet agencies can help them in rain-water harvest techniques. it is not just loss for the family but to the world at large)
        A drop of tear shakes hand with others,

        And flows in a stream from the eyes,

        Sometimes as a symbol of gratitude,

        Sometimes a joy of reunion,

        Sometimes as an expression of grief,

        Sometimes flows without any reason,

       Just to cleanse the soul.

A seed grows into mighty tree standing tall,

A grass spreads to form carpet of greens,

A seed gives a fruit delicious to eat,

A flower on barren branch gives it a lease of life.

             A storm destroys everything in it’s wake,

             A careless word breaks strongest bonds,

            A loving gesture mends the broken hearts,

            Hate is taking away thousands of innocent lives,

            “PEACE” is a word which is striving to survive,

             A word has the power to change the world,

            So please think what you want to say after the “A”

LOVE-Tender & Strong

M

Precious is the love in all forms, 

It is pure, untouched and undiluted, 

It is colorless, formless and limitless, 

It is fearless, selfless and boundless. 

 It bind the hearts and the soul, 

It gives courage to move ahead, 

It is strong enough to face fiery storms, 

Have you ever wondered at the same time, 

It is so very delicate and tender, 

That it can not take the weight,

The weight of deceit or fraud, 

It crushes and crumbles at once, 

So please handle IT with utmost care.

Footprints-An Impression

M

Footprints on the sand so deep and intense

Leaving a trail behind,

A wave comes rushing to fill up the steps

Leaving nothing behind,

Why then we repeatedly walk on edge for

Leaving nothing behind,

Even the impression of the journey is only in mind

Leaving nothing behind,

So my dear friends be grateful for forgetfulness

It leaves nothing behind.

‘Only Temporary is permanent ‘

M

  life comes full circle

‘Temporary in my view is  the most relevant word which defines our existence on earth’

Blessed with the natural wisdom, 

The birds make a nest, 

Not for themselves to live in, 

But just to bring up their offsprings, 

The caves existing naturally, 

The wild beings only take shelter there, 

Apart from man no living being has a home, 

As if  they are aware of their temporary existence. 

. . We in our arrogance just simply forget, 

.  Few years or few decades still it is limited, 

 . We own nothing neither the land nor the resources, 

. The mad rush for possessions is worthless, 

. The hate, the cheating or killings is useless, 

. The king  or the pauper everyone is mortal.

Apprentice of Life

M

The life has a way to keep growing,

Day by day silently and continuously,

It teaches us without an syllabus,

We are neither promoted or demoted,

Nor we are time-bound in learning,

Then why once out of formal education,

We keep re-cycling what we learned,

          I am an apprentice of nature till the end,

           I learn to be open like the sky,

          Sun teaches me warmth and light,

         The streams, the rivers and the ocean,

          They tell me to flow constantly ,

          Each and every element is a symbolic tutor,

         And the best part of this apprenticeship is,

         It is limitless boundless and free for all

Prayers-Roots of liberation

M

. .  Buddha-Symbol of liberation (image courtesy Joy Gupta Clay Artist) 

Prayers are universal, the forms and the way of performing may be different.But the result is the same. It makes us strong and centered. Prayers are the roots on which the tree of spirituality stands strong, and it’s power is felt at the time of adversities or difficult situations. It is my personal experience that which ever road we take, all leads to one direction – THE LIBERATION.

This is a beautiful poem by Nithya Shanti which explains it all .  (To know more about the Author  check Facebook page Nithya Shanti)

There are talking prayers

There are listening prayers

There are prayers that petition 

For certain outcomes

There are prayers that release

Attachment to all outcomes 

One is a sincere call 

The other is a joyful freefall 

           Whatever brought us here 

          Will also guide us home 

           In time we realize how

           Wisdom strengthens faith

           Faith strengthens wisdom

Pray any way you like

Or don’t, if it doesn’t feel right

Do whatever feels light 

And liberates your worries 

Like a snipped string kite

Thoughts your choice – “Peace or Unrest”

M

What I found in the glory of that Sun rise today

Gave me a treasure house of wisdom,

The rising Sun is a signal for activities,

A frantic process of million of thoughts,

Some of them are like new born, soft and tender,

Some are repeated too long to be relevant,

Some give as headaches , others heartaches

Some make us happy , others just sad,

Some are cherished as moments of love,

There are as many reactions as there are thoughts,

It may be alright normally to be thoughtful,

But sometimes a thought or two get struck in our mind,

We deep-fry them constantly on the fire of our anger,

Those are most dangerous ones  

As they not only destroy us but also people around us,,

Today we are seeing these fried thoughts everywhere,

Burning and destroying the kindness and compassion,

Bringing in suffering and pain to mankind,

Lets all collectively pray in our own ways,

And spread the thought of PEACE and LOVE in this air.
