FEAR  –  Can anyone justify Part -I

‘M’

‘ THE JOY OF FREEDOM’

Why the fear? The moment a child starts understanding a bit, not just parents but most of the adults around start putting fear into him. For example very common phrase is ” Go to sleep else ….” or “finish your food else…..”. There is hardly any communication without the consequences. And the result is that child grows up with fear of unknown. Have we ever given a thought as to why we resort to putting conditions whether positive or negative to make a child understand the things. Why can’t we simply say to the child, “my dear, please do this” or “don’t do this” without resorting to the word else.

Through out the various stages of growing up the fear keeps on changing the face but it’s base remains the same. Looking at the kindergarten children, they are the most happy when playing, but as soon as it is class-room learning time, their expressions change. Playing for hours will not make them tired but half-an-hour of studies drain their energies. Have we ever thought why? The reason is the fear of failure to match expectation of teacher. They enjoy playing because their is no fear of expectation. Each year the fear and the expectations keep on increasing, and the child’s life becomes like a remote control of expectations. 

Love is our true nature, but sadly as we grow up, we deviate from our true nature. And start to adapt to the society which is fear and expectation oriented. This is a hand-over process from generation to generation. It is destroying the balance of human nature, the freedom to be just yourself . Observing the present day children, it saddens me to see them buried under the thoughtless and unreasonable expectations of their parents and teachers. Every child is an individual in his own right, he may have different way of thinking on the same subject or topic. 

Some may perform better than other academically, but this does not mean that they are not of any worth. It is sad to see the marks/percentage only criteria to pass judgement on children capabilities.  

If that was true then every student taking medical or non-medical subjects because they scored above 80% in high schools, should have been outstanding professionals. But that is not the case. Neither the administration nor the teachers try to give chance to students to make a choice of subjects irrespective of marks scored. One day when the non-performers do well in their lives, everyone wants to take the credit starting from kindergarten teacher. 

    Let the child make a choice

  .Let him create his own path

   Let him learn from his mista

  Let him fail and try again

   Let him discover his true self

   Self with strengths and weakness both

*He is used  but it refers to both girls and boys

Center-less FOcUS

‘M’ 

 The Sky and the Sea are boundary-less, 

Neither is defined by the start or the  end, 

They have no shape nor any definite form, 

So how can they have a center? 

But still they are so center-ed in their approach, 

Their energy is a blessing for one and all, 

It is the focus not the centre that matters, 

Today When we see so much suffering in the world, 

Perhaps it is because of our  Self-centered approach.

MOHANJI-Unconditional Love 

23rd of February Mohanji’s Birthday.  A few words of gratitude on this special occasion for the Master whose ‘Path of Pathlessness’ shows tbe way to JUST BE




Nothing is such a power force

It created the whole world 

Nothing but only Consciousness 

Connected me to my master”MOHANJI”

 I went to HIM for knowledge 

And an assurance for HIM to be with me

Smiling HE said I have nothing to give

So don’t expect anything from me

I only have unconditional LOVE

It is for all the beings on this earth 

And it is limitless and boundless 

You take it  untill you reflect ME

Once you see yourself as me

You are liberated and free

Then we can connect effortlessly

Loss of self

“M” 

In the pitch dark night stillness,

The air whispering softly

The waves touching the shore silently,

Every element aware of the agony,

I could sense the warmth of that embrace, 

My head buried deep in my arms,

The mind wiped  of all the thoughts,

An emptiness settling  in my heart,

When I looked up and around, 

The glitter of my eyes was the only light, 

Through which  I saw her saying goodbye,

After sixteen years since she left, 

My search to see her as  a glittering star, 

Remains unfulfilled because of my misty gaze.

“Beauty of a Thorn” 

“M” 

It is the flower which beholds the eyes

It is the fragrance which tantalize the senses 

It is the  leaf which is soft to touch

It is the stem which is strong to hold

But it is the thorn which bring out the blood

That pain teaches us caution 

It preaches to chose with care

Life is indeed a mix of flowers and thorns

That is why it gives Joys and pains

Silent Sound of Humbleness 

M ”

 Amid the  sounds of birds and the waves, 

In that hour when the Sun set quietly I watch, 

It goes with a promise to rise again the next day,

I wonder whether I will be a witness to it again, 

It may be on the horizon of blue ocean, 

Or behind the peaks of mighty mountains, 

It’z orange hue always leave me in awe, 

Silently it lets the moon to guide us in the dark, 

This silent Sound-less interchange of gold and silver, 

Shows the  mighty humbleness of the universe so vast.

A day I never celebrated- VALENTINE’S DAY

​. “M” 


                                                     Dedicated to my better half Arun Prabhakar. 

Valentine’s day so much hype around a day, 

Some may be bestowed with too much love, 

While others may feel uncared and not loved, 

For me it is an ordinary day, 

The rain has made it special, 

And my “morning friends” are in a mood to play. 

            When i think of love it is not just for a day, 

             It is not in red roses or chocolates or a ring,

            It is not holding hands or forever vows, 

             These are just gestures which may fade away. 

For me love is to let other be,

To  let other have the freedom of choice,

To let other have a few thoughts of his/her own, 

To let other decide what he/she wants,

To let the other feel partner not a slave or sub-ordinate,

To let the other agree or disagree on the same thought, 

To walk apart but together not in front or behind, 

To live the love day-to-day in countless ways. 

                     I know I can decide matters minor to major,

                    I need no permission but just a communication, 

                    That is the Love which only fortunate may have

                    Yes,  after 17 years of marriage i may not had a Valentine’s day,

                    But Respecting my individual being is most precious gift, 

                   I get  from him  everyday ,

                   And it makes my everyday  -“ A Valentine’s day”

P.S.     Trust is the oxygen &  Giving space to each other is the life-line of a relationship. 

Seriousness- An awakening 

“M” 
Every step I take it may be of some worth

A milestone may give me courage to move ahead

One step wrong and all is gone

So I contemplate my every act 

In this journey of precious life

But one day I got tired of so much stress

And seriously looked at myself

The seriousness with which I analyzed 

I finally realized Life is just a matter of breath

Seriousness
