Sometimes….

Sometimes I don’t want the night to end…

I want to keep roaming in the starry night on the wings of the wind, astride grey and dark clouds!

Sometimes I want to step into the ocean and sink deep into its peace!

Sometimes I want Time to halt just awhile to let me catch up!!

Sometimes I want Time to pause and

Sometimes I want it to go back 4 decades and more!!

Sometimes I don’t want my dreams to end and

Sometimes I don’t want to come out of the stillness of my mind!!

Sometimes I wonder who is the one who is thinking, who am I!!

Sometimes I wonder whether I am living in acceptance and surrender or in denial?

Sometimes I wonder: if I myself am so lost how can I preach and how can I teach?

Sometimes I cry at the pain and the suffering all around, brought by the greed of a few powerful and the rich!!

Sometimes I want to walk away into the deep, dark night; away from all this……

And the day breaks

And I smile

And I think

God knows what He is doing!!

Surrender or denial

Does it really matter….

Happy Birthday β€” and Love Continues to Flow πŸ’–πŸ’•πŸ’–

Let the stream of love flow

In Life or Death

In Pleasure or Pain

In Loss or Gain

These dualities

Ever at play!!

But let your stream of love flow!!

Life is but a dream

Of shadows and light

But why look at the mud

In a star filled night

Let the stream of love flow!!

Those who love truly,

They live!

For love abounds

In unending life!!

Let the stream of love flow!!

And merge with the sea

Into One

Eternal Love

My Forgotten Love and Joy πŸ’•

This post is dedicated to my beautiful and creative niece: Barbara. In her response to the nomination of Small Joy Tag of mine, she had mentioned her love for the sea 🌊

And this made me think: I love the sea so much but hadn’t mentioned it in my list of 15 Small Joys πŸ€” One reason of course is that there are hundreds of things that give me joy 😊 and the other was: I had mentioned only those joys which have been around me these past 5-6 months 🀩 and had completely forgotten my amazing last year and my love for sea. Out of sight, out of mind πŸ˜‡

It was just last year and it appears like another life time! Less than a year ago I had gone to East Coast of North America to see the fall colours. It feels like a dream now! And my visit Around the World and visiting 4 continents in 4 months was earlier last year, and it feels like another life timeπŸ˜‡

I love the sky. I can watch it for hours. But the sky doesn’t give me the feeling of infinitude, which the sea does. I can sit for hours watching the vast expanse of sea, lost in a reverie. Sunrises and sunsets on water bodies are simply divine πŸ’–

Guru Nanak Dev, founder of Sikh religion, in his Sukhmani Sahib has mentioned:

Water = Heavenly Father

Earth = Divine Mother

Wind = Guru preceptor

And I have had so many amazing experiences of wind and my Guru, Paramahansa Yogananda. When I am in any water body with wind blowing and hills around – for me that is Heaven.

Sharing some pics of my love with the sea during my 2019 travels around the world:

Guatemala – January 2019

Brisbane – January 2019

Chandigarh – February 2019

Pokhara, Nepal – April 2019

Montreal and Toronto – Sep, October 2019

Niagara Falls, Ontario – October 2019

Istanbul – October 2019

My Love affair continues πŸ’–

It has been 4 months now that I have been at home and my love affair with the sky continues πŸ’–πŸ’•πŸ˜

I love the sky and the ever changing cloud formations. They tell so many stories. The way they play hide and seek with sun and moon is so endearing. I can sit and watch them for hours 😍😍

Sky is exceptionally beautiful during monsoon πŸ’–πŸ’–

In a way every day is new and every cloud formation is new. And yet there is nothing new.

I have been watching the dance and play of swifts in the mornings. And same crows and pigeons – at times observing social distancing completely and at times throwing all caution to the windsπŸ˜‚πŸ’–

They are my new found friends. In fact my only outside physical contact with the world just now. I wonder what they talk about? Do they discuss the peaceful new environment? Are they scared of going back to the restless and noisy world of yesterday?

Oh how I love the mornings:

Stillness

Peace

Beauty

And the whole of nature performing for me; its only audience….Alone yet not lonely…

Sky, Birds, Me and my thoughts…..and the love affair continues πŸ’•πŸ’•

Social distancing

Lovey dovey πŸ₯°

End of the World

Yes it is the end of the world — as we knew it pre COVID – 19

A BRAVE NEW WORLD IS RISING:

A world that is filled with love and joy.

A world that is filled with compassion and kindness and understanding.

A world filled with faith, hope and courage.

A Brave New World. A world without boundaries. A world held together and ruled with LOVE πŸ’•

Come and join me…

Corona to Compassion

A Hindu by birth

But today if

My religion be asked,

I would say it is compassion

It is being kind

And being humane!

And if I be asked

Do you believe in God?

Of yes,

With all my mind,

With all my being,

With all my heart!

My God is Love

There is nothing but Love

And Love is all that we need to have!

So let us be Kind

Let us be Compassionate and

Let us be Humane!

Let us Pray and

Let us Serve

And make a conscious choice today;

To shift our thoughts

from Fear to Faith,

from Corona to Compassion
