I Donโ€™t Know

I donโ€™t know from where I have come

I donโ€™t know why I was born

I donโ€™t know where I would go!

I donโ€™t know the purpose of life

I donโ€™t even know if life is real

Or it is just a dream!!

I really donโ€™t know much!!!

But I do know that

All of us want to be happy

And I do know that

Doing things for others

Makes me happy!

I also know that

Watching a sunrise

And a sunset

Or just passing clouds

And watching birds in flight

Makes me happy!!

And that makes me think

Why should I worry about

Why I was born

Why should I worry about

The secrets of life

Let me just be happy and

Do things and stuff

To make others happy!!!

Sometimes….

Sometimes I donโ€™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 donโ€™t want my dreams to end and

Sometimes I donโ€™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….

Fearlessness doesnโ€™t mean Recklessness

Some months back, in the beginning of lockdown, I wrote two posts: Fear to Faith I- what the stars tell and Fear to Faith II – What to do!

Chapter XVI of Holy Geeta, describes 26 Qualities of the Soul. And the very first is: Fearlessness: The foundation of spiritual life: having faith in God’s protection, justice, wisdom, mercy, love and omnipresence.

Bible – Job 3:25For the thing that I fear comes upon me, and what I dread, befalls me (English Standard Version)

Covid -19 is still active and many countries in Europe are reporting surge in numbers, and have announced further periods of lockdown. We do need to move from fear to faith, but unfortunately many confuse Fearlessness with Recklessness ๐Ÿ˜›

Pic is a forward.

I keep witnessing or hearing about two kinds of extremes: First kind have thrown all caution to the wind and have become reckless. Second kind refuses to leave even their rooms!

Middle path is always the best way. That is the Buddha way.

Let us move from fear to faith but still use God given common sense, and keep taking common sense measures.

Let us be Cautiously Courageous. Let us be Fearless without being Reckless. Not only during this time, but always!!

Stay safe. Stay courageous. Stay joyous ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒน

One Love infinite Channels

There is

But One Love

And that is Love Divine!

It simply gets coloured

With the feelings of the heart

Father, mother

Sibling, spouse

Friend, beloved

It is the One same Love

The Love Divine!!

But alas…

at times…

A parent abuses

A spouse betrays

A friend turns foe!

Temporarily veiled

Possessed by evil,

Are still His ways

To bring us back home;

To the One Love

Eternal

Unconditional

Divine!!

Love is a Lubricant ๐Ÿ’•

Mother I give you my soul call

For more than a year now we have been having online meditations led by monks of Self Realisation Fellowship and Yogoda Satsanga Society of India. These have been God sent during this period of social distancing and lockdowns, when group meditations were suspended.

My guru, Paramahansa Yogananda, has written so much about God as Divine Mother; and has also composed some beautiful chants around God as Divine Mother.

During last Sunday morning meditation we were chanting: Mother I give you my soul call, you canโ€™t remain hidden anymore…and my thoughts went to my mother and I started to cry. I thought if our mother was such pure love, how loving Divine Mother would be. How loving God would be. Guruji has said that if we could see God once, all of us would leave this world and go to Him ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’–

We have been so blessed to have had parents like ours. They were poles apart and yet lived lovingly together for 71 years! The only thing they had in common was โ€” Goodness and immense love for their children. And they loved my wife, their daughter in law, equally or more.

Our parents in years – 1937, 54, 78 and 96

Our parents represented God so beautifully: Our father as Heavenly Father โ€” Wisdom; Our mother as Divine Mother โ€” pure Love.

It saddens me no end when I hear of children, who are deprived of this divine parental love and care; which is their birthright. And the worst is to hear so much of child abuse. I hope and pray that no child is ever deprived of the love of his parents. And that we learn to love all children as our own.

God is Love and Love is all there is.

Stay safe. Stay loved. Keep loving ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–
