Lessons

Surrounded by ample mystery

Every step filled with great intensity

Of feelings & emotions that flow

In a strange abrupt pushing to new low

Was this the fear of newness or change?

Is this a battle to fight or experience to divulge?

Conscience is warning against the steps

Strong emotions are pulling into weird trips

Is this a cloud I’ve just entered?

Is there an exit to it, is what I feared?

Is this a roller-coaster ride designed for me?

Is there a bright dawn ahead for me ever to see?

Questions are popping like arrows

Emotions are draining the self into fallows

Is this a divinely designed lesson

What is the summary of this season?

Intuition is the ultimate source to guide

Tough times come with a message in this ride

It is for bidding adieu to patterns that are old

To replace redundant traits with newness of gold

Tough times strike not to serve a death blow

It is to rejuvenate one with a new flow

It is to end all the confusions of the past

To experience newness of life in vast

It is to replace guilt with love

As fresh and as pure as a white dove

To learn compassion in life to progress

To leave behind revenge & not to regress!

Few Dumbledore’s Quotes

Quotes of Dumbledore are memorable and an all time favorite. 

The quotes touch upon many aspects in life like Choices &  run all the way till  death!  May be this is the reason they are so memorable.

  1. It is our choices, Harry, that show what we are, far more than our abilities.
  2. Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right, and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good and kind and brave because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort.
  3. Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right.
  4. It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live. The trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things that are worst for them.
  5. The truth- it is a beautiful and terrible thing, and therefore should be treated with caution…
  6. It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, just as much to stand up to our friends.
  7. Curiosity is not a sin. But we should exercise caution with our curiosity…
  8. Understanding is the first step to acceptance, and only with acceptance can there be recovery. Numbing the pain for a while will only make it worse when you finally feel it.
  9. Difference of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open. The consequences of our actions are so complicated, so diverse, that predicting the future is a very difficult business indeed.
  10. Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
  11. You place too much importance… on the so-called purity of blood! You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.
  12. Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.
  13. Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth.
  14. It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.
  15. After all, to the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.

{Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore is a fictional character, a major protagonist in  J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.}

I remember your gentle whispers during my soul’s quest

This is the elixir to my life’s existence on this territory

I pay my ovation to you on all moments in this fest

Your words are my shields that symbolize the ultimate victory

 

Countless battles are fought on this rough terrain

But I cannot forget your gentle & gracious sway

You’re healing words & the acts of valour I cannot refrain

From recollecting till my last breathe all through this way

 

I remember you not just for being on right path & victorious

But spreading across the message of unconditional Love

To this torn heart of drudgery your message was a gracious

And warm celebration of human existence, nothing else to prove

 

I’m blessed to have imprinted your memories on my soul

Grateful for having your gentle & warm words on my lips

My split & torn heart is joining itself to be complete & whole

With strength & courage to view & live life in all lows & highs.

Bliss

Living each moment of one’s life to the fullest

Embracing the message in the given moment

Spreading love and hope as it the richest

Message carried on by us here with a wonderful scent.

 

The scent & beauty of spreading love and hope

Shall make one feel complete & in solace

This is the real medicine for a human to cope

From all gash & take pain & pleasure in same pace.

 

This is the simple & timeless truth of living

In times of pleasure & accepting pain as it is

With this realization in life; joyfully riding

 And beautifully carving the path with a gentle muse.

 

Action to help a living being; gives one freedom’s wings

Living life with a purpose & contentment that rings

Proclaiming its motto as ‘live and let live’ is bliss forever!

Choices

images (8)

She travelled an extra mile

To get back long lost smile

Took a deep breath for a while

To let go of any kind of vile

 

She just saw river water flow

The speed of her steps is slow

To remove all the buried hollow

To rise to new vision from low

 

She could feel the warm breeze

It gently removed all crease

She felt anew, calm & peace

It’s fresh, an effect of confusion cease

 

An orb guided her to a place

The stride there is sans race

Her inner beauty increased the pace

It gently lit brightly all the days

 

All the days of her life are now

Full of surprises, newness as she bow

To the divine call & unconditional Love

Her heart & actions are as pure as a dove

 

Everyone is given a chance to choose

This is the time to be diligent & muse

Life is not meant to be an unworthy ruse

It’s meant to add meaningful colour to the view

 

When the choices are made in true spirit

It shall be followed by myriad merit

The path for co-passengers is also lit

It is a decision of the heart & not wit.

A Dialogue or Monologue

An alien with beautiful eyes and a smile full of grace encountered a human who seems to be engrossed about something. Their conversation is as below:

Alien: What is that you are thinking about?

Human: You must not have noticed, this world is full of issues, concerns. I have so many duties & responsibilities. It’s not that I’m not happy but there is a constant struggle to prove

Alien: To whom & what do you prove?

Human: We need to fight for our existence & prove that we are worthy for our work & literally everything- it’s called competition.

Alien: Survival of the fittest, is it?

Human: Yes

Alien:  It is an animal instinct. I thought humans are above these animal instincts. When you are blessed with bountiful of resources on this Mother Earth why do you still struggle?

Human: Because we all fight for the same pie. We struggle to prove our existence. But yes, sadly there are few of us who struggle to meet ends.

Alien: You appear to be a bit contradictory- when you know you are fighting for the same pie, why don’t you just move ahead?

Human: Alas, wish I knew what for I’m here, I would go after my pie.

Alien: Do you think you are sent on Earth to run after pies, collect souvenirs?

Human: What else should I do, I’m just bored. I should keep doing something to occupy myself and tell people around.

Alien: Do you live life for yourself or to prove to people around?

Human: Frankly speaking, to a great extent for the sake of people around me- responsibilities.

Alien: Working for the sake of others is indeed a great quality- then you should be always happy. But why is it not happening?

Human: Let me ponder……..May be because I don’t do it with my heart.

Alien: Any specific reason?

Human: May be because I’m scared to discover the ‘real me’. May be I’m just blaming the people around me- calling it responsibility & shunning my true nature.

Alien: What is your real nature?

Human: Being a human.

Alien: What is it being like a human?

Human: Humanity is a blessing. It gives one the brain to think, body to turn your thoughts into actions & a heart that can carry memories. A heart that can feel & bleed also- A soul that can imprint & touch upon many other souls-make a difference

Alien: Are you living this blessing?

Human: Not fully. But I shall from now. By the way who are you?

Alien: Can you answer this question for yourself?

Human: Until few moments back- no. But yes, now I can. I’m a Human

Alien: You are a Human blessed to experience life in each breath on this beautiful planet called Earth to carry your work wonderfully with Love.

Human: Nice definition…when you can define who I’m so well, I wish to listen to your words on who you are…

Alien: I’m an ‘Angel of Hope’, just like you are an ‘Angel on Earth.’

Human: Do you keep coming here?

Alien: I’m always with you; you just need to open your heart for my messages to flow. By the way, do no start defining ‘you’ again.

You are blessed with an existence to live & let live; not to prove your existence. Your existence is proved each moment you breathe in & breathe out. Craft your work with love not as a burden.

Human: “Live & let live- craft work with Love…”

The Angel of Hope vanished.

The human was left in a mesmerizing state, not sure if this strange meeting really did take place or has it happened inside the brain. No clue. But the message is simple & clear.

Rising Phoenix

You feel Divine Angels speaking
Opening new channels of thinking
There is a sense of twinkling
Your eyes are miraculously shining
Your entire frame is rising
It is a sign of a journey’s beginning
You can feel messages flowing
At times it seems time is freezing
This is living life with a meaning
Just like a phoenix rising!

A Lesson from the Park of Life….

On a visit to the neighbourhood park with my niece, I had the privilege of being introduced to her park play-mate; a two year old kid…. 😛 The two year old kid’s mother in a casual conversation expressed her eagerness to see her kid grown up and self reliant.

My thoughts started racing. ….This word “grown up” seems familiar yet strange.

When I was a crawling baby, I thought when I can walk then I’m grown up.

When I started walking without any support, I felt grown up is the one who runs and boards the school bus.

When I started running in the school, I felt if I ride a bicycle I’m grown up.

Later, I thought if I travel to far off places on my own by train or a faster mode of transport then I’m grownup.

The race is not yet over. I thought I shall be grown up when I drive my own vehicle and have my own vocation, views and opinions.

Alas…The modes of Transport have changed, my definition of grown up has changed, my views and opinions have undergone tremendous changes. But still I’ve unanswered questions, unsolved riddles and puzzles in life just as a kid. In fact, the questions have been increasing.

Suddenly, I heard kids clapping around me and my racing thoughts returned to the park.

The gentle and the tender smiles of the kids made me ponder further and I’ve realized that we engage ourselves in our chosen path of life and again re-live our childhood and memories with our kids.

May be its strange and that is the paradox of life, that we try to co-relate the ever flowing nectar of life with non-living objects. Nothing is permanent. Change is the Law of Universe. Learning and growth are an integral part of this change.

As a Law abiding student of this Universe, I wish to continue my learning. And guess how I’m planning to do it? By visiting the park frequently to keep my learning alive and share with you… 🙂 Continue reading
