Close your eyes & open your hands

Milestone events happen automatically sometimes.

How, what, when, why- you probably never planned;

Yet the biggest and the best falls straight into your lap.

Of course, you've always wished for abundant goodness,

"But, this? Really?"

Have you ever caught yourself wondering?

It might be a different direction, but it'll lead you right;

This is His masterstroke, though the path is out of sight.

He hears your questions, as He works to ease the haze;

Shh! Quieten your thoughts- abide throughout the maze.

Jump over the puddles- there's magic!

Happiness never has to wait; it's true.

Think with me- We all have so many rosy thoughts,

But do we actually do anything with them?

That is wasting a precious life in vain, don't you think?

What is it that you'd give up everything to do??

I know my answer for sure, as I type this out to you;

And I can't believe I hadn't thought much of it earlier.

There is meaning to the extended madness;

There is a purpose behind the rocks in your path.

The universe wants you to wake up to your power;

It's time you knew of the greatness that is your life.

Orientation helps

It's hard to start from scratch, a journey you'd once quit;

But I'm a tough girl and I know I can win if I want to.

Today, while at the temple, I said my usual prayer,

And then waited, as always, to hear God's reply to me;

Three-quarters of the wisdom here, I receive from Him.

Somebody once told me that humans are too intelligent,

That they manage to believe whatever they want to;

So, God could very well be a made-up proposition-

A legend someone created to lighten their own heart.

I wondered as I sat there, if it was me I've always heard;

And so, I debated on and off, arguing, taking sides.

A hint of reality

I become immensely envious of people who can just be.

Actually, let me think before I publish this to the world-

Is there anyone who can be sure of themselves always?

It's truly amazing to be able to love yourself though.

On a good day like this one, it all sinks in.

Our fears, embarrassments and entrapping situations;

All of these exist only in our heads.

Do they really care about how strange/not you are? No.

Is anyone genuinely interested in seeing you hurt? No.

Can anybody better your thoughts for you? No.

Is there light at the end of the tunnel? Yes.

A chapter in the story

In abundance, fruitflies attack and decay, attempt.

In adversity, the crows peck; tearing meat, rejoice.

Curiosity kills the cats and thus, their value in your eyes;

Years of your virtuousness, in disdain, beginning to fade.

Where do you think they all stand in your life?

Will you now settle amidst walls thicker than steel?

No matter what decision, hereon you may take,

Know that life, for the best happens always.

There is wisdom in the bitter pill that awakes,

There is only your betterment in the silly retakes.

Flight to freedom

In breaking, you realize how much you're made of;

In trying again, you learn to give it your life.

Risks are to be taken, in one way or another;

Hope ought to get stronger as pathways get narrower.

Will you remain distraught?

Will you give up because it's hard?

Or Will you fight the tears and simply aim to win?

Ordinary people, simple minds, delicate hearts;

They go on to achieve great feats- they do.

Do you have faith in you?

Maybe not. Why live in your body as you then?

Hold on tight to the little things

Little things matter more than you can know;

Seek peace and find your stability in them.

When something so huge comes by in life,

When you're holding your breath and wondering,

Hoping, Praying, Willing for good to come off it;

Catch hold of your pot of vaseline,

You'll know for sure that it'll still remain yours.

Think about how life can possibly differ from now on.

Will you be able to lie down with ease tomorrow?

Will you be able to throw your feet up and relax?

How will who you are or have become change?

Calm down; take an easy breath in and out.

Dare to defy the tide

Where there is compulsion, it all becomes distasteful.

Are you forcing yourself to do things you don't like?

Give me a few minutes to debate with you, then.

One question, one word- WHY?

Because the opposite person will end up feeling bad?

Or Because they won't like you, if you don't?

Or Because you won't be their reigning favorite?

Or worse, because you fear they'll walk out on you?

Oh, no, let me guess- etiquette- isn't that it?

Quit- no, not because I'm asking you to.

Quit it because you're only deceiving yourself.

The start of a new era

You're late, in a lot of ways.

Don't bother wondering what you've done all along.

You're wasting more time than you can afford to.

Stop trying to backtrack or look up other options.

At the risk of sounding like an irritating monster;

I'll repeat- Stop.

If you want me to put it a little nicer, here goes-

You've been cleaning up the periphery of the heap.

You've been diligently aiming to sweep off the pile.

Now, if we're done with the compliment showering;

Let's get back to business, shall we?

Nothing is lost until you start fluttering in the wind.

Take a deep breath in- it works, is cheap and is quick.

Share the load

So often, there's so much going on in our minds.

Stress can take away all your energy;

It can paralyze you from head to toe.

When you're numb and are just waiting for days to pass,

When you stir your coffee relentlessly,

Looking for a sign in the patterns in foam that form;

When you can't understand who will or should win-

Your inherent gut feeling or your strongest desires;

When you aren't sure whether you ought to be grateful,

To be able to peek into the future and tell;

Slow down your mental processes.

All the power you've been losing will show up.

What curtain are you hiding behind?

When your devotion becomes too commercialized,

When your passion seems to have suddenly gone amiss,

When you're starting to run away from what you loved,

Pause and reflect.

Is the true cause of your boredom out there?

Or Is it concealed within the layers of your heart?

No, the words you write don't matter.

Even what you say doesn't change anything.

What matters is whether you still feel what you felt.

If you're really living for you,

It won't matter what anyone else thinks or might think.

Sunny side up! ;)

Life is easy.

Success, fame, adulation, power, money;

It'll all be yours, if you truly want it.

We pile ourselves with so many expectations;

And fall flat on our faces, if nothing comes off it.

When a storm blows your bright umbrella backwards;

You most certainly don't need a new one right then.

Turn it around and steady it against the wind;

It's about trial and error, planning and persisting.

Today is a new day.

Don't carry with you the negativity of past failure.

How strong are you?

When things don't work out in your life,

Do you think that God is testing your faith?

Do you ready yourself for the downfall?

Or Do you comfort Him and say,

"I know that you're trying, sincerely, to better things;

I see tiny traces of magic that you've attempted.

I'm egging you on and walking by your side;

I promise that I'll keep persisting, until we succeed.

I am your friend till the end, too, remember?

Know that I love you for all that you are to me."
