WHY???

Everything seems so perfect from the outside. Happy faces, laughter and joy. But, how can we miss out on the subtle violation of basic rights that takes place on a daily basis? Don’t these very subtle little things create a huge impact someday?

The society that we are currently living in, if we keenly observe we realize that we as a society on the whole, lack very basic level of empathy, understanding and sensitivity! ( Now I am just talking about the society in general. I do agree and believe that there certainly are mature, sensible and responsible people who contribute to the betterment of mankind in every way possible)

Why don’t we understand that everyone’s fighting their own battle? Some are expressed and heard and some are not. So, when we start thinking from others’ perspective, we realize/ understand how it feels to be in their shoes. Having said that, it also becomes our responsibilty not to inflict our pain onto others. We should never try to project the bitterness we have experinced by our past truama onto others. Being sensitive to others’ personal issues while being responsible enough not to take an unduly advantage of our past bitter experiences is the key to living a meaningful life.

Here are few questions that we might have to ask ourselves everyday ( Self-introspection) :

Why don’t we understand that people take their own time and space to progess in their respective lives? Everyone’s journey is different and everyone follow their own path and it’s none of our business to bombard them with personal questions related to their job, career, marriage, pregnancy or the life choices that they make for themselves. Why can’t we stop meddling with others’ personal lives? Why??

Why do we think we are superior to the people younger to us? Why do we think we have authority over them? I do agree, we have to be there to guide them through and show them the right path ( very important) but that doesn’t mean we have the rights to curb their freedom and ability to make decisions for themselves. Scrutinizing them is entirely different from wanting to have control over their lives and making them feel entitled/obligated to us just because we are older to them. Our actual responsibility is to show them the right path and LET THEM BE THEMSELVES. We have to let people bloom and shine in their own way. Why don’t we understand this very basic thing? Why???

Why do we always have to comment on someone else’s physical appearance or judge them for their dressing sense? Why do we always try to instigate our moral superiority when it comes to people and their physical appearance. Everyone’s beautiful/smart in their own way irrespective of their complexion or body shape. Each and every human being is beautiful! Why can’t we just encourage people to accept themselves the way they are and respect their personal choices? Why???

Why don’t we understand that LIFE is not a set of rules and it has to be lived a certain way? We are all here to carve our own path and figure out our lives on our own. Why can’t we be less judgemental and more understanding?

Why can’t we be more sensitive and empathetic towards others’ and their personal issues? Why don’t we realize that we are NOT here to judge or correct people ( unless ofcourse, if they’re being harmful to the society, it becomes our moral responsibility to correct them).

And lastly, life is all about beautiful contradictions. And world is a mixture of people. By gaining an in depth understanding we become more open minded and less judgemental! Human tendencies are always there. But we must know when to speak our mind and when to keep things for ourselves.

I hope we all delve deeper into ourselves and introspect ourselves on a daily basis to create a healthy, positive, open minded and a carefree society.

P.S: I am not perfect either! All the above questions imply to me as well. Constantly working on bettering myself every single day!
These are just a few questions I’ve always had at back of my mind! Just felt these are worth pondering upon and hence decided to share it with y’all.

Love, peace and lightđź’«

CHERRY BLOSSOMS

Dotted with lush greenery,

And jewelled with fragile little flowers;

The atmosphere is filled with sweet fragrance-

The vibrant green canopy;

Spreads it’s wide arms and embraces us,

Tender sunlight that passes through the tiny little leaves-

Kisses our skin with such warmth!

And a bunch of pale pink coloured flowers-

Set out a spectacle view,

And our heart fills with joy –

Because it’s that time of the year;

Where we see cherry blossoms everywhere!

FINDING MEANING IN UNCERTAINTY

With everything that’s going on in my head,

I find myself at the crossroads ahead;

Tethered with uncertainties and insecurities,

I ask my higher self to guide me through-

And I push myself to soar high and through!

As the time flies by,

The true meaning of uncertainty unveils before my eyes;

The higher purpose of life unfolds itself.

And my inner voice echoes and says:

” The beauty of life- lies in uncertainty;

Just anchor the restless mind deep within the ocean of stillness,

Where the uncertainty dissloves and true purpose unravels!

And at the end you realize it’s all worth it!”

Her soul shone brightly,

Exuding joy and bliss;

Her spirit sprung sprightly,

When she immersed herself in the divine cosmic abyss!

Her sparkle touched many lives-

And reached the state of Euphoria!

Unboxing many beautiful moments stored in her archives;

She captured the essence of life’s aria!

There she stood like a Divine Goddess,

Her face shining through the darkness,

And glowing brightly with Divine Radiance!

NATURE’S HARMONY

As the sun rises,

Dewdrops start to sparkle-

Capturing little rays of sunlight.

Flowers start to bloom;

As the rays kiss their petals,

And my soul dances

As I witness the harmony of the nature!

While being oblivious to the truth,

All beings are inter-connected.

The little facets of nature,

Exert realm of ingenuity.

The Divine cosmic energy that surrounds us-

Is the manifestation of the fact that we all are one!

Though we exist in different forms,

We come together as one Universal energy-

Dancing in the vortex of galaxies and stardust.

DREAM CATCHER

The colorful myriad of patterns,

Intricate network of feathers and beads woven;

Splashes of colors thrown,

Vibrant shades considerately chosen.

Sways when the soft breeze whisks;

Swirls in the eddies of feathers and beads,

Pushing the clouds of despair-

That shrouds our fervor!

Adds elegance to the atmosphere,

And makes it more alluring.

Lifts the spirits of joy

And the happiness is assuring!

As the soft breeze hits my face,
Memories start to flash with pace.
The very glimpse of you,
Makes me feel that your love is so true!
My heart starts pounding,
Feels like I’m fleeting.
Venerated are the moments!
And as the time passes by;
Love gets so intense!
As the true love is always eternal.
In the heart it blossoms;
And the feeling is so pure and blithesome.

CAGED THOUGHTS

My mind is muddled,
Trapped in it’s own thoughts!
And I remain baffled-
As I’m caught.

The depth of solace;
Remain deeply buried under the layers of filth!
Anchors of consciousness-
Fail to invade the silt.

The path to blessedness-
Remain untouched!
As the futile thoughts conceal the mind;
The inner self becomes blind.

Caged in it’s own conception,
Mind is bound to accept deception!
And when the hollow thoughts are drained;
The divine serenity is attained!

LIGHT OF WISDOM- THE SUPREME CONSCIOUSNESS 

I shed my veil of ignorance,
Genesis of delusion.
In the pursuit of divine reverence;
I procure the path to salvation!
Amidst the sphere of mirage-
I seek divine wisdom,
For the idiocy to sabotage!
To dwell in the consecrated freedom
Flee the diabolical maya,
And rejoice the holy exultation!

Oh, Heavenly father!
Enlighten my soul to escape the veil of maya
And to enrapture the light of wisdom-
The Supreme Consciousness!

SANCTITY

As I close my eyes;

Tranquility starts to rise.

As I detach myself from profane,

I attain the state of being serene!

Theres comes a time, I attain stillness;

For there shall be no foulness!

Heart becomes a place for the divine-

And is worshipped as a shrine.

Bombardment of thoughts is sustained;

As placidness is obtained.

Inner self becomes calm and composed,

As the turbulence of thoughts is quietened!

And the ultimate path to Spirituality

Leads to the divine ocean of sanctity!

NECTAR OF LOVE

Oh Divine Mother!
I’ve been waiting for thy love-
The paramount of happiness!

The consecrated nectar I crave
For which my soul is ravenous!
The light of wisdom you bestow,
In thy surrendrance-
Seed of devotion I sow,
Without any hindrance
For you have graced us with thy love!
The unsurpassed form of eternal bliss;
Soul is filled with divine love
Roped into heavenly abyss.

Oh, Divine Mother!
I have been waiting for thy love-
The paramount of happiness!

RAY OF HOPE

Melancholy encircled my life like a fence;

Misery so intense!

The withered dog house of grief,

Agony ineffable in brief

Envy creeping like silent footsteps;

Strident words rustling like evil voice,

When evil comes knocking to our doorsteps

Pain is endured for, there is no choice!

Inevitable is the torment that comes by,

Ineludible are impediments and are hard to deny!

But never give up the spirit of enthusiasm

For there shall always be a

“Last ray of hope”
