The Light at the end of my tunnel..

When god created mankind…he also created the problems that would keep them busy and occupied. After all if life was all happiness and contentment, what would we do with all our time? Would it not be totally boring and bland if we knew every night while we went to bed, and every morning as dawn broke, that our joy and laughter would be safely restored the moment our eyelids open? And so is why each day is different, and we have no idea what awaits us when the sun rises day after day, as seconds become minutes, as minutes become hours, as hours become days we grapple endlessly with our multifaceted problems as they hound us in all their unremitting glory!!

So what is it then that holds us from bursting at the seams…from irreversible collapse as we are accosted by one hurdle after the other? It’s solely because of these angels that god filled our lives with to ensure that we are never left high and dry, no matter what!

Yes its these very same angels that so beautifully fringe our little world… that we call our ‘friends’.

Sometimes when life is not all green fields and smooth roads that are bright and well light…. when all we see
are dark and sinister tunnels that seem to run endlessly, it is these angels that help us traverse even the deepest cavern.
My life is blessed by only a few such angels. But of all those only one stands out …. and that is my healer… my best friend!
In a world that’s obsessed with digital madness, where people have no time to talk to you , or listen to what you need to say, my angel has not only stood by me through all my darkness, she has never hesitated to drop all her priorities to hold my hand and lead me through the longest tunnels and towards the light.

So recently when I found myself gaping at the ominous and gloomy mouth of yet another tunnel, I looked around for her. To m1766f4a7e60abb90cff9c67b3b5515d5y despair, I could not find her anywhere. All of a sudden, I found myself panicking. Realizing I was on my own
, I tried in vain to muster the courage and confidence that I needed so badly at the moment. I closed my eyes, willing myself to stay strong despite the fact that my whole being felt empty and betrayed. I blindly groped my way through the tunnel feeling all vulnerable and alone. Knowing I had no choice, I slowly pressed ahead refusing to heed the hurt in my heart, trying all the while to ignore the voice in my head that was shouting:  “She does not care for you, You trusted her, she has let you down.”  Time passed me by, and my steps became slower, my path became darker and my hopes of enduring and reaching the other end became dimmer still.

I stopped, buckled over and decided to give up on myself, my dreams and hopes and my doomed journey. Just then I saw a faint flicker of light on the pathway just around the upcoming bend. Hoping against hope, I dragged my wounded soul to the bend. There
just a few yards away I saw the end of the tunnel, bright light pouring in through it. And there, silhouetted against the opening, shining brighter than the bright sunlight, was my best friend, waiting for me, with her arms wide open in a welcoming embrace!!

I ran to her shouting “why did you leave me alone? why did you betray my trust?”

And she said “Because I had full faith in you, I knew you will endure and come out of the darkness and that is why I was waiting for you here. I never left you, I was with you all the while, praying for you, but I needed you to know your own power and to see that you will be able to handle anything life throws at you even if I am unable to physically be there for you!”the-moon

All of a sudden I felt ashamed for even doubting her intentions.
She is my healer, my best friend and god-sent angel, and I feel blessed to have her in my life! She is the light at the end of my tunnel. Trust in god’s angels that grace your life everyday, not your circumstances.

Wishing everyone a beautiful and blessed new year!!

Solitude

Here I stand, before thee
Defenseless as an aging tree
Ties, bonds and love that wane as I flee
For the endless abyss that now beckons me…
Here I stand, before thee
Empty and alone as one can ever be
Vast void spaces as far as the eyes can see
Hesitant and torn …a  heart that cries in a final desperate plea
Here I stand before thee
Swirling winds that engirdle with evil glee
Sonorous whispers.. “you’ll be free.. you’ll be free”
As dreams and hopes of a lifetime fade in memory
Broken and torn … feeling like the weest  wee
A prisoner in a world where solitude quells  ‘WE’
And so, Here I stand before thee,
Defenseless as an aging tree
Dreading the unbeknown fate that awaits me…
 Not knowing where to go, or what to be…

When the soul weeps…..

When tragedy strikes people closest to our heart, especially when it is of the worst kind, it does not afflict them alone… the grief feels more like our own.

How do we console someone who has just lost someone dear, forever? Especially when we know that no amount of our words or actions can alleviate the deep distress inflicted by death.

Rendered absolutely useless by fate ….reduced to being a mute witness to the raw anguish that is tearing apart the people we love the most….all we can do is try to will away the boundary that separates life from death…wishing we could magically gain the power to give them  back the person that they have lost!

To see that person, whom we love and care for deeply, who has always been the epitome of calm, crumble and break down uncontrollably right before our eyes makes us feel so hollow and empty. Unable to offer anything other than our trifling love and understanding, we let our soul weep unbridled, along with theirs.

What else can we do, when god decides to take back a life…one that is so dear to us…. even though it always belonged only to him! When he decides to stop the game, un-heeding our mortal pleas for playing it forever, what else can we do but unquestioningly surrender to his will.

Why should it be that while death liberates the souls of those who are leaving, it entraps the souls of those who are left behind, in an inescapable maze of grief and tears? Why can’t it be otherwise?

Unfortunately and ironically, it is death that teaches us the real value of life and love…In that moment when a life is lost, never to be regained … when a soul returns back to god…. he emphatically reiterates, that we are but puppets in his hands….that he is the indubitable authority….that, in truth, nothing we treasure as ‘ours’ actually belongs to us, including our own body and soul!

When people closest to our heart weep….all of our worries and problems suddenly become trivial and insignificant before their grieving heart….

When people closest to our heart weep… our souls weep along with them… wanting and wishing to be there for them in the best way possible, praying for god’s mercy and grace to envelop their bruised souls in a comforting and healing embrace.https://i2.wp.com/prayercommunicationwithgod.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/3772_Journey-of-the-Survivor-From-Grief-to-Survival-_958859577_n.jpeg

Happy Friendship Day!!

I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff. – Jon Katz

Today is ‘friendship day’….a day to celebrate that one bond that keeps us afloat even when the sea is rough and tides are unfavourable!

Friendship is probably the only relationship in the whole world that is accepted as is and doesn’t need to be authenticated by law or otherwise, unlike most other relationships.

It does not differentiate between the rich and the poor , the literate andimages illiterate , the old and the young or the good and the bad. Perhaps the reason why Voltaire chose to describe friendship as ‘The Marriage of the soul’ is because it’s the only bond that cuts across species even!

We all have friends, good friends and that one best friend who makes our life worth living. We also have those friends who are no longer our friends – those that we purposely allowed to drift away because of some silly fight, or momentary anger or whatever..

Friendship day is a time to enjoy this beautiful bond, forgive past mistakes, let go of pointless anger, put a smile on our quotes+about+friendship+(6)friends’ faces, and maybe, try to get back in touch with that friend who we let drift off for silly reasons? Let us celebrate our friends and good friends, and feel really blessed and thankful to god for that Best Friend who lights up our world.

Happy Friendship day!!

People, Love and Healing!

I started this blog years ago just so i could follow my friend’s blog…Even though I love writing, I’ve never really considered blogging… until now !

We meet a lot of people in our lives. A few of them stay with us till the end, many just pass through our lives briefly. And then there are these extremely rare few who totally turn our lives around if we are blessed enough to meet them, that is! These are the people who teach us the true meaning of love. I am a very closed person.. I never used to go out of the way to help people …until I met her! It usually takes a whole lot of time and patience to build good things but it took her only a  moment to light up the darkness within me, to mend everything that was broken and to give new hope. She exudes so much warmth and love that even her words have the power to heal and repair! This is my first post ever and what better way to start this journey than by thanking the one who always stands by me, believes in me even when I don’t and who continues to inspire me every single minute. So I dedicate everything I write in this blog, every word, every thought, every idea to her – my best friend, my healer :-)…
