EXPO 2020 – DUBAI U.A E PART 1

It is amazing experience with whole world on one spot.216 pavilions representing all  the countries

Every representing  country did their best to showcase their Culture,  Nature, Costumes,  Jewelry, Traditions, and Today’s Development  progress, plans for future. 

It was a once in a life time experience. Due to time constraint I could visited 110 countries only, got the white passport.

A glimpse of how varied our world is.

Sustainable future has been the buzz word. Hopefully, the world is awakening to the immense danger to the environment and future, due to mindless destruction in the past in the name of development.

Woman’s Day- Contemplation

Woman would be empowered in the true sense

The day society Stops judging them in the beauty pageants

On

The basis of physical appearances

and parading them on stages.

Stop criteria of certain height weight and ramp walks in high heels.

Stop matrimonial ads requiring certain physical features ( both for woman and man)

Stop supressing your daughters & daughter-in-laws in the name of traditions and customs.

Education and earning money is not signs of empowerment .

Stop expecting them to be at home by a certain time.

Stop blaming them when something goes wrong in the family.

These are a few things for thought. Everyone of you can add on to it and ASK what creates limitations and boundaries for you.

My gratitude- My Guru

When life is blessed by the GURU/MASTER , what it means ?

Biggest misunderstandings :

GURU would make our Life all roses and no thorns

We would have all the comforts of life

We would always be happy

Our relationships would be harmonious and smooth

We would never face hardships

People would not judge or misjudge us

We would not experience Emotions like anger, dissatisfaction, loneliness or other misplaced feelings

HE/SHE is a shortcut to achieve materialistic goals (whatsoever we have set in this life)

GURUS do nothing mentioned above.

Then why should we seek the MASTERS or the GURUS?

The answer to THIS WHY – my learning with blessings of my GURU “MOHANJI “

The willpower to not react in a given situation which may not be favourable

Stay calm and Not play blame game when someone hurts you

Differentiate between self respect and ego ( very thin line between the two) . Stand for your self respect at all cost but do not give into your ego.

Realize the power of NOW, and living in this moment.

Realize our Temporary existance, and consciously living in reality of this TRUTH

We are no one to forgive anyone who hurts us because that person is doing what he/she thinks is right. Set others free of your idea of right and wrong. Let them decide.

The strongest relationship is with SELF. Loving yourself is selfless not selfishness

Gratitude is most powerful blessing in this journey. It is a protective sheild .

MONEY is a powerful energy which gives us opportunities to help needy. Having lot of money is good😃

GURU illuminates our path in the darkest times.

Love never binds it LIBERATES

Walk and the path-Gratitude

My walking path since 2012

Gratitude to this sea shore For being my companion Witnessing my journey Absorning my emotions In return giving me PEACE

There are no traces of my presence No footsteps to say I was here yesterday But everyday I come to you Without any fear of being judged Or misjudged

The stillness of your being The gentle sounds of your movements Connects me to my SELF Ever time I take your leave I know you would be there for me tomorrow

Winter mornings -I long

How I miss the  winter mornings  of the hills

The lazy rising of the city

Foggy moist air  all around

Small Fires burning outside the tea stalls

A few bold people encircling the warmth

Talking from current affairs to world  politics

With steaming cups of tea in their hands

Heavy checkered blankets and  caps wrapped around

How many glasses of tea they would drink

Even they  would not know

The woody texture fills  my nostrils

When I think of those  times

How I miss those lazy mornings

Would I be able to experience it ever  again ?

That is where my heart belongs

In the deep pine mountains

I am not a city person

But then the destiny never asked

What I want ………

Our spirit may have free will

But are we not slaves ?

 

 Shimla – my childhood connect
