Bravery

Image
I oh-so-proudly belong to one of the richest mythologies ever known to the mankind. Being brought up amidst these mystical stories in everyday life, Ms. Lil Right Brain has been very artistic in ideas. Imagination saw no boundaries, my head explodes with images, events of the epic being told, I’ve always had a version, probably the most beautiful one in my thoughts. As I see, as I listen to these - fantasies or fables or even simple folktales, I delve so deep that I become an integral part of the story, hence they sure had (…and continues to have) a profound effect on me.  
The Goddesses, Gods, wars, warriors, triumphs and trails, good vs. evil, sages and ascetics, plots and laments, the list is inexhaustible, and never fail to mesmerize me. One thing always strikes me the most is a Hero, his/her Bravery. The immense courage, absolute fearlessness displayed with infinite poise. A real hero, his grit, the very valor he harbors is heart-throbbing. I am so in awe with the heroes, well the…

Participation

We participate in the dance of creation. The magic of life, unfolds in front of your eyes, as you keep taking those inspired actions - which in turn define the whole of our lives. I’ve always believed-
Choices we make Decisions we take Rules we break Things we forsake
This pretty much summons the whole lifetime. You set our goals accordingly, arrange the priorities, sort, shift, re-arrange, it is a continuous process - this participation to move towards the Goal. Doesn’t matter if somebody else decides for you - which college to go, when to settle down, whom to marry, which city to live in.. etc. but ultimately choice comes to you whether or not to go with it. You follow the protocol or break a rule or forsake a thing to define that exact path. 
Participate to - fit in, to earn, to live, to survive, to protest, to choose a leader, to rise against inequality, with family, friends, relatives, acquaintances, society, culture, country, within/ beyond limits or boundaries. Every single day and n…

Letting-Go

Image
You let go, let go and let go, because that is the only way, You have been learning, all your life. The whole world teaches you otherwise, but you learn to let go. Anyways, what is there to hold on to, nothing is everlasting – Isn’t it? Not even love? Not any ordinary love, that LOVE where you connect with the other soul, when you fall in love not with the mere person, but the light which shone through the heart center.
Fine, you let-go.. now, this suffering.. Why do we suffer, Oh My God, so much?
-You weep, all day, all night, these tears, they come from some unknown place, you wish they dry up one day.. you wait, for them to be done.. but… -You try to fall asleep, get a few hours of shut-eye, regardless of you wanting it or not, sun is so consistent (unlike people) so the day breaks, sun shines, a new dawn begins, you have places to be, things to do -You dream, the haunting nightmares of what-happened/what-should-haves/what-could-haves, they wouldn’t spare you even while asleep -Wake up wi…

How much love is enough love?

LOVE... LOVE... LOVE... How much love is enough love?

LOVE - Ah! gives me chills even with the very “word” alone. The reading, writing, listening to, hearing of it in a beautiful lyric of a song, talking about it, anything, anywhere, gives this in-explainable bliss. I’ve wondered, why is that? There are all kinds, many ways.. in love- Here especially with soul Love, regardless of the time/age/location/situations preconditioned in the mind. God! I think.. think.. I go on.. give it a thought.. more thoughts, which leads to 3 more thoughts, then an army of thoughts. All get jumbled up inside of my head, I pause. Then, take a deep breath in… let it out like in Yoga, a cleansing breath.. aaaah! Closed my eyes, to hear my lovely heart.. This is what she says -
“It isn’t the word gracing the ears, it isn’t the sight through the eyes. 
No, it isn’t the writing-reading-hearing-talking about it, but it is the very feeling attached to LOVE. 
How your soul resonates with your heart’s feelings which per…

The Magic of Dreams.. and beyond

Image
Make a wish. Break a rule. Take a chance.

Dreams, oh dreams!! what is life without these dreams? Some sub-conscious, rest conscious ones. Both are incredible, to experience a dream is to taste a piece of heaven. Each one of us has dreamt/dream/will dream on, I am sorry for those who are so lost in the realm of everyday “routine” that they forget to have any awareness to it. Nevertheless, it always exists, even there are some researchers who have proved that pets, indeed all mammals who have a brain activity close to Humans, dream their dreams. Now I think, how about plants? Those macro/micro-organisms? Singled celled Amoeba?  I haven’t Googled, but I would continue to think, what I think :)


Oxford dictionary defines the noun as “A series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person's mind during sleep.” And as a verb “Contemplate the possibility of doing something or that something might be the case.” That summons, that all Goals, ambitions, targets, destinations, intentions…

Joy

Joy. Happiness. Contentment.
I have felt all these and am continuing to feel it in my heart, mind and soul. Of course, there are times, days, weeks, months and years in a row I haven’t even had the whiff of these, But so very very very delighted that my true awareness recognizes this in every walk of this shiny life. It is my best effort to come up with a list, as far as my consciousness can remember – the most joyous, blissful moments so far. This is just a tip of an ice berg, the rest will just follow like that savvy sway of an enchanting spring
With no particular order of any time-frame/intensity/volume/length-breadth/chronology, here it is

I am so grateful of everything and everyone who lead me to it. -To hav…
