Silence It Is

A space, infinitesimal space, a gap in the middle, The mind still, caught in the middle ground, Observing, observer and observation suspended, That, with no definition, makes It’s presence felt, It isn’t exclusive, It is available to everybody, Try to monopolize It, watch It disappear in an instant, It doesn’t seek to convince, It doesn’tContinue reading “Silence It Is”

In the Realm of Love

This past Sunday, I decided to listen to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan after a long time. I don’t know what made me do it but I put on a song that he had performed. The lyrics are by a great poet by the name of Allama Iqbal. Dayar E Ishq Mein Apna Maqaam Paida KerContinue reading “In the Realm of Love”

Think before you speak

I am very guilty of doing this. I just speak whatever is on the mind and I tend to think afterwards that I should have waited, took a few seconds to reflect and then respond. Sometimes, we get angry when we hear something and we react straight away, maybe we should think for a coupleContinue reading “Think before you speak”

The Struggle continues

3 months ago, a world that was full of colour turned dull, a life full of light turned into darkness in just one moment. All that remained was the observer in me – the watcher was untouched by the sadness and grief that struck my mind and my whole world was shattered. I didn’t knowContinue reading “The Struggle continues”

Priorities

Dreams are a fleeting shadow, that stays in the back of our reality and we feel content with the way things are. I want to do a shoutout to a Visionary, an extremely talented poet and it is worth watching this video to your heart’s content. Prince Ea joins forces with Neste with this poemContinue reading “Priorities”

Enlightenment – Time is Now

Postponement The whole journey of being enlightened is something that we like to postpone. Let us get a good job first, let the children grow up, let me retire and then I can look at enlightenment. However, if we look at what the Sages said, the message is simple and that is that only thisContinue reading “Enlightenment – Time is Now”

Humanity – the root of all virtues

We all face a certain situation where we feel that we have been treated unfairly or we know of others who have been treated unfairly. We find corrupted leaders who are able to place corruption charges of those that are ‘below’ them or accuse them of crimes, which they themselves commit. Such hypocrisy is thereContinue reading “Humanity – the root of all virtues”

Post 97 – The Paradigm of Truth

Confidence is something that grows with time. When we look at the situation we are in, we think of many faults and we think of how we do not deserve things, we have an inner hierarchy and we lose out on living in each moment. For example, we all may believe in a higher being,Continue reading “Post 97 – The Paradigm of Truth”

Post 95 – Knowing is the Only Way!

Hi readers! Hope you are well. I had a thought, can I call it a thought or shall I say revelation? Hear this out: ‘If you know the Truth then you don’t know. You can only be in knowing of the Truth.’ I probably could say the last sentence with greater clarity but I shallContinue reading “Post 95 – Knowing is the Only Way!”

Post 46 – Not many…(spiritual poem)

Your silence is never understood, Your emptiness not comprehended, Your beauty not appreciated, Let all be completely  destroyed.   You created such beautiful sounds, Like the breeze carrying leaves, The waves crashing onto the shore, And the sweet song of that woman.   In your complete awareness, I am flowing to your ways. Love isContinue reading “Post 46 – Not many…(spiritual poem)”
