The Veil (Sat, 30 Sep 2017)
The Veil  Toiling and rejoicing behind the veil, I see, I feel, Yet I would not reel, For what is a human If one cannot steal, The dearth of values, Filling it with clues, Of ideals, For it can only be shown, As the only way to get there for one is to attain, And, Yet I choose to ordeal in moments to reveal, For what else is my purpose in this illusionary upheaval.

Time Unfolding (Mon, 24 Oct 2016)
When you wait long for something to happen, or when you run for your passion, you chase time every moment. The idea of waiting is very treacherous in those moments. Every thing that happens in your life is a step towards knowing yourself deeper and a door to learning. Its like blossoming of a flower. A Rose flower blossoms slowly, secretly, in a way that we cannot see the small details with naked eyes. The unfolding of each petal is so graceful and with utmost synchronicity, that is amazing to watch. This naturally occurring phenomenon is so similar to life and its events. We cannot rush into  achieving our goals. We need to put in self-effort and act everyday step by step with faith. Our vision helps us have faith of its happening. All of us deep down have this sense of knowing that we know our dreams will come true some day and that its a matter of time. This sweet and graceful time. Time that is like a healing breeze,  and feels like a soothing sound. It takes its own pauses before it shows up in the form of celebration. Embrace this waiting with faith and love. Invest your time in gaining different perspectives, because when its time for your blossoming, these learnings will be your biggest asset, and will shine through you and give light to others.

Apna Khayal Rakhna : Focus on yourself - your thought about self. (Sun, 10 Aug 2014)
                                    When someone really means something for you, it touches your senses like never before. It rings the bells like the sounds of wind chimes! You feel like you found a jewel out of that treasure box.                                                   Today while having a chat with one of my friend, he suddenly out of no where said -- "Apna Khayal Rakhna" meaning take care of yourself. It usually meant - I was making sure everything is fine physically and mentally with me. All of a sudden in that moment a bell rang in my brain cells, and the meaning of "Apna khayal Rakhna" changed. I started questioning why we have been saying it since ages and what came up with was incredible to know. It infused me with some kind of excitement!             Here you go - "Khayal" means "Imagination"-"Thoughts in your mind" ! We usually tell this to those, who have not been keeping well for long due to physical illness or some psychological stress. It is said in this manner, in order to focus solely on self for some time. It is because there has been some other person, group of persons, an incident or any random thought other than yourself in your thoughts for a considerable period of time, which created imbalance in your thinking pattern and that in turn caused mental and physical stress. To create balance you need to keep your own self thought- "Khayal".                               I went a step further down to know more. It would also mean to immerse your self in self. You start looking inwards rather outwards. You focus more on self, and do all that will align your MIND,BODY and SOUL. You contemplate on your self.                              Some people retaliate with this theory of focusing on self, thinking that its an act of selfishness, to reason their ego. I am sure if you keep thinking like that, you would continue going round and round on the same dot.               Mostly when we are ill, people visit us to shower us with positivity to get well soon. That is what the intention of a visit should be rather than a mere formality! and they would say "apna khayal rakhna"or "apna dhayn rakhna" which meant to get back the positive imagination/thoughts within you. Happy Khayal, Happy Dhayn!
