Magical Moments

Most often we come across a situation where we are in two minds : Should we Go ahead and do it? Or should we wait and decide if we can?  A kind of situation where all our instincts point us in one direction, and yet civilization leads us to choose the exact opposite direction.

That split second moment when all of our senses are in harmony, yet civility decides to play spoilsport, robbing us of the miracle that could have otherwise been born. All the magic lies in that one moment that we hesitate … and pause to decide if we should follow what our heart , mind and soul is whispering albeit in a very faint voice.

There was this man, Roger , who was besotted with a lovely young woman. For days, he would muster up his courage to go and proclaim his love to her, only to hold back and abandon his resolve at the last minute. One day, his magical moment descended upon him  when he was walking on the road and came upon his lady love picking flowers from a roadside tree. He could hear the voice of his soul, directing him to declare his love to her. Yet he stood still, content to watch as she picked her flowers and put them in her basket. Suddenly there came a handsome young man in a fancy car. As he watched with growing pain in his heart, his lady love got into the car and disappeared down the street. He never saw her again. Five years later when he (still single and unable to forget his first love), walked into a restaurant, he saw her, his lady love, sitting alone at a table and reading a book. He approached her. What started as a casual meeting grew into strong friendship, and he realized both of them were so aligned to each other. This time, when he had his magical moment, he won over his hesitation, and finally proposed to her, and they were happily married for a long time.

Roger was one of the few lucky people for whom life gives a second chance, but for most of us, it is not so. If we do not respect our magical moment, it is lost forever.

It is in stopping and pausing to dissect what our soul dictates at such moments, that we irrevocably forfeit Love of  a lifetime, friendship that could have been second to none,  hope that could have been sowed, lives that could have been saved and healing that could have otherwise been.mother-teresa-great-quotes-images-words-by-mother-teresa-quotations-of-mother-teresa-images-wallpapers-photos-pictures-download-550x413

open up your heart to the ones you love, let them know how much they mean to you, love them without restraint and speak your love without filters, for we may never get another ‘magical moment’.

All the magic lies in that one moment, so don’t let yours slip though the holes of logic and sensibility!

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…

Life is Love… Love is Life !!

Life is not about impeccability and perfection,
It is in knowing and accommodating flaws and limitations.

Life is not about dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s,
It is about doing what you enjoy… anything that gives you peace.

Life is about the littlest things that spell satisfaction. 

Happiness is not in money and flamboyant living,
It is in having nothing and still giving.
happiness is not in restrictions and conditional clauses,
It is in the freedom of unplucked roses.
happiness is not in revenge so much as it is in forgiving.

Love is not about laughter that’s superficial,

It is about sharing in grief and,

                Wiping tears that are real.

Love is not about good times in houses that are palatial,

It is about hope and faith when,

                 deprived of everything vitally essential.

Contentment is not in laments and complaints – myriad and plenty,

It is acceptance and compromise when life is near empty.

Contentment is not ­­in seeking and wanting a lot,

It is in building a beautiful life out of naught.

Contentment belongs not to the body, but to the soul in reality.

Life has many positives, despite the negatives…

Happiness is in the plusses, not the minuses…

Love is in repairs and mends, never in breaks and ends…

Contentment is in Life, Love, and Happiness than in anything else!!

Soulmates

Who is a soulmate really? It would appear hopelessly cliched to define a soulmate as one who loves you unconditionally, and who completes you in every-way possible.

Rather, I feel a soulmate is someone who rubs you the wrong way umpteen times, who drags you into multifarious fracases of varying gravitas, and yet remains as lovable as ever, if not more!!

After all, the love that is woven with threads of grief and distress is the most enduring and deep-rooted. And people who share that kind of love- they are soul-mates who are truly tumblr_mt5re51Apw1svi7b9o1_500supreme and inviolable!!

A person who chooses to hold your hand and walk through the doorway of all the trials and tribulations that you may encounter is the unexampled quintessential soulmate.

He; who makes you understand yourself better through his mistakes, who sometimes makes you realize what you truly want, by bringing what you don’t want,  who helps you metamorphose from what you are into what you are meant to be, who makes you come alive; is your soul-mate in all his winsome glory.

A soulmate is forever : simple not complex, flawed not perfect, not phlegmatic, loving not stolid, emotional not clinical, a human not an automaton!!

A soulmate : is forever..

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 :-)…

Have you ever had someone in your life, who fills it with music, who cares for you like a parent, who loves you so much that your problems become their worries, your victories become their triumph your smile becomes their joy, who taught you how to live for love? If you have then feel really blessed, and continue to spread the love…and heal as many people as you can!!
