philosophy, Soulful

Soul churning thoughts…

When things go wrong,

I wonder, “Is the wind of righteousness responsible,

For this devastation? “


And then,

The tempest of emotions,

Violently swipes away my senses,


And I am trapped in a gloomy whirlpool of resentment and guilt.


All attempts to come out of this quagmire go in vain,


And I rest for a while,

Tired of this eddied existence.


I contemplate the inevitability of everything gone wrong,


And realize the worthiness of being right,


And I do away with resentment and guilt,


Finally,

Emerging, though very slowly from this trap,


As storms do not last forever,


Though they change everything they touch,


But what does not change is one’s righteousness.


And,

Realizing this truth,

I feel elated the way I survived this devastating tornado,


But never lost my righteousness in the process.

The Night Speaks When…

Do you ever listen to the silence of the night? No, not with your ears, but with your inner senses. Try listening it tonight, it’s simply magical and captivating.

The night speaks when,

The inner voice silences,
The heart opens up,
The mind is attentive,
To hear the stories,
The night has to share,
Of the past, present, and future.

Where,
Mysteries are revealed,
Notions are changed,
Taboos are broken,
Prejudices are shaken.

And,
It brings out a fearless you,
The one who is ready,
To listen to the night,
Everytime it speaks.

Free Soul

I found freedom in,

Dancing to my own music,

And singing my own song,

Unapologetically being myself,

Every single moment,

Even if I falter and break a bone,

Or strain my vocal chords,

I’ll just push myself more,

And expand my existence,

Like this limitless sky above.

I relished every moment,

From the glory of morning-

The fresh fragrant breeze,

That invigorates those weary senses,

The sweet songs of birds,

That make this ambience magical,

The balmy rays of the sun,

That inspires one to go ahead with the day,

Like a fire that lights up everything it touches.


And as the night beckoned,

I simply relaxed imagining,

The majestic mountains,

And the enigmatic sun dance,

The blooming valley,

And the aromatic air,

The soulful sky,

And the calming water,

The morning bird songs,

And the evening starry nights,

All that nature has offered,

Generously to us,

Every single moment.


If ever I felt lonely,

With no one to hear and speak,

I talked to the trees,

These little flowering buds,

The cuckoo and the crow,

Sitting on the porch,

Or my little pet dog.

I went beyond human dependency,

And experienced a connection,

With other lifeforms too.


Days pass in joy,

As I live to the fullest,

Learning and sharing,

Creating and caring.


Again the night arrives,

With a full moon this time,

That gives hope to everyone,

To be child-like and dream,

To love this life and stay adventurous,

To think of the unimaginable,

To talk about the unbelievable,

And,

To never give up in life.


As I fall asleep,

I live an explorer’s life,

Who packs his bags,

And goes on an adventure-

A trek to the mighty Himalayas,

A deep dive in the deep Pacific,

A skydiving thrill in the listless sky of Dubai,

Cycle non stop in tour d’France,

Or run a half marathon in an event,

Somersault like a gymnast in a circus,

Dance and swirl on my toes like a ballet dancer,

And make every moment truly enjoyable,

Sharing a playful vibrant smile,

And a pristine sparkling love wherever I go.

LIFE: FREEDOM: HAPPINESS
