Cosmic Embrace

A distraught daughter,

Looked hither tither,

Searching for her mother,

Her doe-like tear filled eyes depicted fear,

She looked deep into the sky,

All she saw was a moon,

The stars and a few birds fly,

The cosmos glimmered in a divine swoon,

Tears welled up blurring her vision,

She cried in confusion,

What was life doing to her ,

She wondered where was her mother,

A strong embodiment of love and grace,

Blessed with a divine face,

Her mother promised to be by her side,

Forever she would stand beside,

The daughter surrendered lost,

Saw a shadow near her flicker,

She looked up aghast,

To see her divine mother,

The one she had cried to meet,

To see her so real,

To see her smile was so sweet,

The feeling was deeply surreal,

In a moment of silence they stood

Communicating in silence, they understood,

They had met due to divine grace,

Dissolving forever into a cosmic embrace…

Illusions and Emotions

One day the illusion breaks, what you thought to be true, cease to be anymore…

What you felt was real, is only left in the deepest recess of your mind…

What you experienced, was all in a state of confusion or illusion…

The people you were attached to, moved on to progress in their lives…

You sat there feeling stagnant, waiting for those times to come back…

But everything has changed forever, no one remained the same anymore,

So with the good wishes, blessings and love forever alive in your heart,

Its time for you to move on today…

The broken illusion beckons to you, as you stand sad and distraught…

The shadows of time, will soon wreck the illusion apart…

All that will remain will be the memories you kept in your heart,

The emotions you expressed and the experiences you sought…

Very soon you will be free, starting at a new sunset…

The same sun setting, but in another corner of the world…

Making new memories while these sweet memories give you strength,

With gratitude in your heart and everlasting warm smile on your face

As the breeze lightly caresses the soul, wrapping you into a mystic embrace…

The thing about trauma…

Close-Up Photography of Hand Near Window

After a long time of trying to fool yourself into believing that you are a happy go lucky individual without any trauma or suppression in your individual life. Let us take a moment, reflect, introspect and come to terms with what’s happening within us. Life is different from what it seems to be. To be spiritual doesn’t mean to shun the world within your mind, which has suffered at one level. No blame game here. Nobody can be responsible for what your state of mind is or was at one point of time. It’s all your responsibility. The thing about responsibilities is, so long as you take them you should be just fine. It means you have the strength to go through the situation and you chose to take it up. If you have been given them, means you have the capability. But the knack of doing well in such situations, comes from believing in yourself. If you are that person who keeps telling yourself and others that you cannot do something, means that you have to be given another chance. You have to give yourself another chance, nobody else can give you another chance anyways.

Responsibilities are something which reminds you of how strong you are, it makes you the best of yourself. You couldn’t have done better if you chose to take the responsibilities. Yet, often what happens if something else. It makes us weaker. As we run away from responsibilities. Our families constantly tell us, remind us that we are made to be taking responsibility. It’s not that easy. It’s about believing in yourself. The day you believe in yourself, your ability, your capabilities, your strength, your faith in the divine. You should be just fine.

Life was meant to be used in order to be of use to others (Seva), life was given so that you could repay your karmic debts, life happened so that your karmic accounts could be settled. Life is an opportunity for you to learn. So failure, is not the end. It is that stepping stone which is essential. You will learn from it. So just because you couldn’t do something, doesn’t mean you can’t do anything. Your life is not as complicated as you end up making it to be.

You have been in a cocoon always, you could never have been a butterfly, and you would have never learnt how to fly if that cocoon of protection around you wouldn’t have broken off. You would always have been the typical individual. Today was a lesson, tomorrow is an opportunity to start afresh. So take the learning and make the required changes. Fly because you’re not meant to cry… its okay if you lost your warmth and protection, make it your choice not a compulsion.

If you have been broken, if you have gone through a lot, if life has handed you too much. It’s alright. You have been used to support, it is time to throw away those crutches now. Life is not meant to be wasted like this. I understand that problems keep coming, situations will keep coming. Nothing changes.

Some people understand you some don’t. Period. Everyone will come into your life, play their role and leave. It’s not about faking it in front of these people. It’s about being truthful to yourself. You are a strong individual. You have been through a lot. So think about those people in your life who have always been with you. They have been your strength. They will always be with you.

Responsibility isn’t a physical phenomenon. Doing something for someone isn’t physical. It’s a mental and emotion state. It needs strength. You need to believe in yourself to be able to do it. It’s about being so strong that you can take what life hands you with open arms. If it’s breaking you inside, if it’s wreaking havoc with your inner state of mind, and somewhere you’re fighting it inside, one day it will all come out. It won’t be good that day. You will cry a lot. You will fight a lot. You will break a lot. You will be lost. You will feel alone. You will feel like a failure. Like it’s the end.

But that’s not life. Life is more. You have to learn to come out of this. Some people are fast and some slow. Some people take responsibilities very fast, some never do… its okay to be the latter. But it shouldn’t end like that. Work on yourself. Make yourself stronger. You need to be there for yourself. Start building your inner core. Work on maintaining a balance. You have broken time and again… but we can’t stay broken, we eventually learn to build ourselves…

Now it’s time to build yourself from scratch, so build yourself the way you want to be. Be grateful that you got another chance and start now…

Take care of yourself, you deserve more, much more is within your hands than you feel, be strong and learn to be happy. Send forgiveness to the situation, give yourself time… time heals everything…

Suppression

The suppression is real. There is true social suppression happening in the world. It happens everywhere. If you live in a society you are already a part of it. You may even be doing it to someone. Even if you are unaware, suppression is wrong. It means to dominate someone, kill someone’s passion, undermine someone’s opinion, devalue human life, and crucify humanity.

Suppression needn’t be violence, it is very smooth. It has just become a part of who we are. Life is not a race you need to win by making other people lose. Life is simple. Just live your life, don’t interfere in another person’s life. Advice is different, it can be given when you feel the other need helps. But compelling them to follow your ideologies is suppression. You are stopping them from blossoming, learning their lessons and finishing their karmic accounts. You don’t have a right. Just because you feel you are stronger, or the other person is giving in to your demands for whatever reason, doesn’t mean they are weak.

The one who feels the need to prove their power, is the weaker one always. So why one person should let another person’s weakness become their source of suppression? It is time to think. We need to put a full stop to this kind of suppression. Somewhere in a house a mother is being suppressed by every member of the family. Somewhere the child is being suppressed.  Somewhere the father and so on. Inevitably, we are all being suppressed. No one is true, no one is natural anymore. We are all a result of who someone else wanted us to be. Somewhere we have lost our individuality, we have lost our identity. We have to remember that we are not an outcome of the social norms. It is one thing to follow a few rules in order to maintain discipline and it is another to live like a hypocrite, so that you fit in.

Judgement, hypocrisy, hatred, lust and bondage are all a result of suppression. We are all suppressing one part of our true nature. We all want to be known only for our goodness. Does that mean only goodness exist within us. If our other qualities are always going to be hidden, when are we going to come to terms with curbing them?

This was about internally suppressing the qualities within us. There are some people in the world, who have suppressed their passions, their love for life to keep someone else happy…

Why do people give up on something which means everything to them? Why does someone give up their lease for life so easily? Like they give up a food item? Who says that is not suppression? Who says that is right? It is wrong. Sometimes people give up their happiness for others, to keep them happy. That is a suppression. It happens on a very subtle forum, but it still hurts… it is like taking away their life force… its the worst thing anyone can do to someone:(

Suppression is a sin. First we need to come out of the ties of suppression yourself, only then will we be able to help each other. In a world where even the way you look, the way you dress, what you do and what you don’t do, beings about suppression and judgement. I think we really need to get busier in our own lives. Its time to stop being a hypocrite. We are busy living someone else’s life for them. Let them enjoy their life, their life is none of our business. Only when we start living our life we will express our true nature and let other express their true nature. It’s time to be natural, it’s time to be free, it’s time to give space and most importantly it’s time to put a full stop to this suppression.

It’s been going on since a long time, it is time to end it now. So you reflect now, where the web of suppression has made its house in your life, and break it. It has to start somewhere…

Don’t Suppress and don’t take Suppression!

A story untold…

 

The pages of the diary looked at me

seeking my story of the day

I looked back at them clueless

and wondered what to say

the empty pages waited to be inked

with an experience newfound

I wrote away to my hearts joy…

finally I closed the book with a tear, a cry

Within the pages of the book had been inked the heart touching story of a woman… who never lost hope in love…

Often looking at the sky I wonder, what was so vast that you didn’t know where it ended?

Often looking at the ocean I wondered, what was so unexplored, that you didn’t know its depth,

Often looking on into the night I wondered, what was so dark, that you would never know where to go,

Often looking at the flickering lamp I wondered, what was it that burnt itself to light the atmosphere for others…

Red Lighted Candle

Maybe:

The freedom we are yet to know is so vast, we do not know where it ends and where it begins either…

The love we are yet to know is so unconditional we have not even touched its surface and we still feel it immensely…

The fear we have within us since forever, is so dark that however much you try to go within it to finish it, you would never reach the end…

The light of wisdom which flows from the Guru is so gracious that it has the power to burn the seeds of Karma and roast it, it also has the power to bring light into the lives of people, who are in the darkness of ignorance, it has the power to change, it has the power to bring peace and love into your lives…

As I breathe in the smell of the fresh monsoon,

The aroma of the wet mud and the soothing sound of raindrops,

The brightly colored flora glazed with the fresh rain water,

The grey clouds envelope the vast expanse of the blue sky,

The golden sun hidden behind the clouds witnesses,

The storming winds, the thunder, the lightning striking the ground,

Oh! what a melange of emotions Mother Nature,

Enchanting, Enigmatic and Entrancing….

An enigmatic epiphany…

Far away from the sea shore,

A sound so serene and so sweet,

Beckoned to the heart of the listener,

The heart of the ocean and the listener were just about to meet…

Ocean View Under Blue Sky

The listener swayed with the tide,

Waiting with bated breath to hear,

Anticipating the ocean’s pride,

Dissolving fragments of fear, the ocean spoke loud and clear…

‘I know not, the mystery of my depth’

One day I will dive into it to discover,

I am timeless and can’t be touched by death,

Hidden ecstasy and bliss I shall uncover…

Further ensued a lovely experience,

Which was of the heart of the listener listening,

As it listened in a mystic trance,

Tears flowing and the waves glistening…

Every wave which arose,

Emotions, thoughts or feeling,

Merged back from where it rose,

Into a seamless ocean of healing….

White Sand Beach Under Cloudy Sky during Sunset

Every current deepened an unhealed wound,

Resisting the change, which the tide brought,

Sound of silence left the listener spell bound,

As the ocean guarded its depths, lost and distraught…

The entire ocean within a drop hidden,

The wave knew not its entirety,

Revealing the secret so guarded and forbidden,

Whispering its tale into the silence of eternity…

beautiful, calm, clouds

Tears of happiness the ocean cried,

To have finally been uncovered in its true form,

Overcome by the ecstasy of liberation, serene and staid,

It was like a calm after the storm…

beach, bottle, cold

Dancing and singing, the ocean flowed,

No more guarding mysteries of its depth, no more searching,

Approaching a shore where a warm light glowed,

The warm feeling of coming home finally, to the eternal calling…
