A Silent Heart………

If a heart is silent

It hears faint murmurs

From the voiceless voice

That calls from the heights

Of the gigantic mountains

Or serenades like the birds in flight

Flying freely to open skies

Or fishes that swim with the waves

Up and down to their glory

Earthy presence that laughs in flowers

Each bud blossoms in floral colours

Softness of a tender whisper coos

And my beautiful heart reciprocates

Bursting with ecstasy and delight

From its very core to be loved

By someone who is kind and gentle

Admires you for who you are

With all your flaws and blemishes

Silently and patiently forever…………………..

Until………….

Until the grapes are crushed

There is no wine to drink

Until the flowers are crushed

There are no perfumed fragrances

Until the gold goes through fire

There is no jewelry carved beautifully

Until we do not go through our suffering

There is no pleasure awaiting us

Until the clouds do not thunder

There is no rain falling anywhere

Until the hate does not stop

There is no love found anywhere

Until the anger does not subside

There is no peace at all

So during those grinding times, know that the road of your life is under construction.  There are seemingly more pebbles, muck, stones and debris that surrounds us.  But Unless and Until we hold on to divinity with the deep conviction that the Master is planning that smooth freeway to take us to higher destinations in great speed, then the journey through the process of this construction will be that of courage, learning, expanding and ascending. 

Being able to laugh heartily and smile genuinely are simple blessings. Hold on to them. They are precious gems, don’t ever take them for granted. Our very existence depends on how happily one embraces each moment.

Do Not Be Slave of Your Words………..

Once upon a time, an old man spread rumors that his neighbor was a thief. As a result, the young man was arrested and put behind bars for no fault of his own. After a long time, the poor man was proven innocent. After being released, he sued the old man for wrongly accusing him.  In the court, the old man told the judge very casually as if nothing untoward had happened, ‘They were just random comments, they did not harm anyone.’

The judge, before passing sentence on the case, told the old man, ‘write all the bad things you said about him on a piece of paper. Cut it up into little pieces and on the way home, throw the pieces of paper out of your car window. Tomorrow, you come back to hear the sentence.’  The next day, the judge told the old man, ‘Before receiving the sentence, I want you to go out and gather up all the pieces of paper that you threw out of your car window yesterday.’

The old man said, ‘I cannot do that. The wind spread them all over the place and I will not know where to find them.’ Then the judge replied, ‘The same way, simple words and comments said in fun, may destroy the honor of a person to such an extent that a person will not be able to fix it. For the rest of his life he will be suffering for your actions. If you cannot speak well of someone, do not say anything at all. Do not slander him unnecessary. Let’s all be masters of our emotions, so that we will not be slaves of our words.’

He further said, ‘Gossips are worse than thieves because they steal another person’s dignity, honor, reputation and credibility which are impossible to restore. So remember, this: ‘when your feet slips, you can always recover your balance but when your tongue slips, you can never recover your words.’  

Always keep hoping for good for others. As the Chinese people say: 

‘Keep a green tree in your heart, the singing bird will surely come.’ 

Live Simply, Look Fab and Enjoy Life……………….

Love Life…………..

Life is a wonderful journey

Love life, it will love you back

A thousand times

Stay in touch with people

Who make you wild and crazy

Drop the fear like a ton of hot bricks

Face your past with boldness

Worry not, it has become a habit

Gaze inside, eyes provide insight

Heart provides the way to delight

Always look at the brighter side

Laugh till your stomach aches

Count your blessings, keep the faith  

Life is an unsolved mystery

Unravel it at your leisure

Go on a relaxed vacation

Call out silently, she will hear you

Love Her immensely, she will fall at your feet

Trust me, life is simply a joke……….

Ant & A Wealthy Man……….

One Sunday morning, a wealthy man sat in his balcony enjoying sunshine and his coffee, when a little ant caught his eye which was going from one side to the other side of the balcony carrying a big leaf several times more than its size.  The man watched it for more than an hour.  He saw that the ant faced many impediments during its journey, paused, took a diversion and then continued towards its so called destination.

At one point the tiny creature came across a crack in the floor.  It paused for a little while, analysed and then laid the huge leaf over the crack, walked over the leaf, picked the leaf on the other side then continued its journey.  The man was captivated by the cleverness of the ant, one of God’s tiniest creatures. The incident left the man in awe and forced him to contemplate over the miracle of Creation.  It showed the greatness of the Creator.  In front of his eyes there was this tiny creature of God, lacking in size yet equipped with a brain to analyse, reason, explore and overcome.  Along with all the capabilities, the man also noticed that this tiny creature shared some human shortcomings.

The man saw about an hour later the creature had reached its destination, a tiny hole in the floor which was an entrance to its underground dwelling.  And it was at this point that the ant’s shortcomings that it shared with the man was revealed.  How could the ant carry into the tiny hole the large leaf that it had managed to carefully bring to the destination? It simply could not.

So the tiny creature, after all the painstaking and hard work and exercising great skills, overcoming all the difficulties along the way, just left behind the large leaf and went home empty-handed.  The ant had not one second thought about the end before it began its challenging journey and in the end the large leaf was nothing more than a burden to it.  The creature had no option, but to leave it behind to reach its destination.  The man learned a great lesson that day.

Isn’t that the truth about our lives? We worry about our family, we worry about our job, how to earn more money, where we should live, must we have a 5 bedroom or 6-bedroom house, what kind of vehicle to buy, Mercedes or BMW or a Porsche, what kind of dresses to wear, all sorts of things, only to abandon all these things when we reach our final destination. We do not realize in our life’s journey that these are just burdens that we are carrying with utmost care and fear of losing them, only to find that at the end they are useless and we cannot take them with us.

The happiest people do not have the best of everything they just make   the best with everything they have. 

Stay Simple, Stay Loved and Stay Happy.

Come Let’s break up

Our showy illusionary barriers

Let’s go fly a mystical kite

Spreading love in magical embraces

To skies that pour healing light

Every beautiful struggling Heart

Clothe yourself in pearls of peace

Propel the boat as my Guide

Where the wind becomes music

Movement becomes an ethereal ballet

And smiles that turn to laughter and joy…………….
