LABELS – Why?


 ‘M’
Why it is such an effort to go through the day,

By night fall body and mind tired and withered,

Dreading the next day.

        Why the mindless rush to work endlessly,

        Grab whatever comes in the way,

       Just to achieve the success?

 Why so much of enmity towards the fellow-beings,

Killings in the name of freedom,

Just to prove the domination?

                 Have we given thought to so many Whys,

                Reasons may be multiple and entangled,

                But for sure LABEL is prime

Poor rich good bad achiever looser,

Religions colors race or creed,

What are they? simply the LABELS



            Just imagine world without all the LABELS,

            There would be nothing left to compare,

            Then Harmony and Peace would prevail.

IDEAS-  Undefined Patterns 

‘M’ 

So many ideas random random, 

Some pop-up just like that from nowhere, 

Some may be a trigger from somewhere, 

Some come like a flash of light, 

Some are like rainbow few and rare, 

Some really stick and stay,

Whatever where ever they come from

I don’t care and divulge deeply, 

I just pick the one I fancy, 

And  work on it consistently, 

I know that it will yield results surely, 

May be little later rather than  sooner, 

This has been the pattern of my life, 

 And I don’t fight with it anymore, 

Perhaps  it is a blessing in disguise, 

As there are no heightened expectations, 

And I live life without hyper tension.

SIMPLY LIFE

“M” 
                              
             ​                                                  ​   Walking with myself

My long walks are my guide, 
And are my companion too, 
They are inspiration too, 
 I sieve all my thoughts while walking, 
They are a mix of desires,expectations, 
Aspirations, goals and simple pleasures, 
Desires and expectations are first to vanish, 
Then goes Aspirations and goals too,
As they are the cause of  restlessness and hurt,
What is left are the  simple pleasures, 
They are what my life is made up of, 
                                  


I love to spend time listening to my son’s musings, 

Watching the birds fly and their perfect landing, 

Enjoying The dance of  Sun rays on the ocean

Feeling The stillness of vast universe inside me, 

My life is a journey and a destination too, 

Without the burden of unfulfilled desires,

And the disappointment of broken goals.

    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

    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
