Optimism: Waves of Hope

These blurred waves of light reminded me of what we know as light, it does exist in the world; even in the night it is somewhere in the world.

I was quite sad yesterday and I was motivating myself continuously to feel optimistic. In the night when I stopped writing, moon came to motivate simply by showing these waves of light.

Many times it's our belief that makes us feel positive or negative about a situation more than the situation itself. 

The only thing certain in our lives is the uncertainty. But light is there always if we seek.

Last year I was in a happy state of mind and wrote poems despite being suffered from double vision. I was happy and calm till the moment I came to know that I am suffered from a rare eye condition called double vision and it is because of 6th nerve palsy. How interesting it is to know that I was happy though the situation was difficult just because I was unaware of the complications involved in the condition I was facing.

When I saw the MRI of my brains, I didn't feel terrified by so many tiny infarcts in both brains. I consoled myself that they are so tiny, thank God that there is no big clot. The fact was that they were seriously significant enough to obstruct the blood flow in the brain which paralysed my 6th nerve. 

The paralysed sixth nerve which is connected to eyes caused moment of my left eye to stop completely making it dead.

But as I didn't know about the meaning of infarcts in detail, I didn't feel that much shocked. 

So when we feel sad, it's not necessary that the situation is that difficult as what we feel. We lose hope assuming that worst case scenario has happened and believing that it will last forever. 

While the biggest truth of life is uncertainty. Neither sad situation and feeling is certain to stay forever nor happy.

Isn't the moon telling us this truth and telling to stay calm just like her facing the dark and the way she smiles in the dark night? We can create our waves of light to walk in the dark and they will be our own waves if hope. Though blurred, it's still light.

No wonder why poets get tempted to write so much on moon.

Gratitude: Graciousness of God

Few days back I found my gratitude file. I read it again and felt so positive for being so blessed by the God. I think I should start again filling my  gratitude journal every day; it brings  back strength for a gloomy day.
Just trying to express it again...Thinking about God's grace, it's so difficult to stop tears. Divine bond with the God is different from the worldly matters. We get rude, we can be annoying, we may be offending, we can behave really crazy with the God. Though it isn't justifiable, God's love is so infinite like the sky that what remains is only love purifying all the impurities of human mind like frustration.

Poem: My Angel

My Angel
You wished I deserve to live
I started living this life
My Angel
You wished I deserve to be happy
I learned to smile
My Angel
You calmed my distress
And I found peace again
My Angel
Grant me my one wish
Now let your eyes smile
Now let your eyes find the happiness
You are my Angel
My angel is my world
The world where my angel isn't smiling
Will never be my world
All evil has gone now
Let the sadness in our eyes leave us forever
Let's be the reason of each other's happiness...

Poem: For Your Happiness

Everything is for your happiness
Everything will be for your happiness.
Your happiness is my life
Your smile is my strength
Your love is my reason to live
You are my everything and
My everything is You.
You are the God of this temple called life

A sacred core in heart
Beyond the rights and wrongs
Beyond all good and bads
Beyond complexities of life
Beyond distortions of emotions

Is Your faith in my life
And it will always be so
Till and after the measurable forever
My Life
For your worship
To see your smile
Your happiness is my only obsession
O beloved!
See yourself through my eyes
Meet the God in you
residing in my eyes
Meet my eyes whom your smiles gifted life once again 
The entirety of my existence
For your happiness

Poem: I Find You in Me

In the depth
of silences of my world
Layers of emotions of 'me'
Unfold to me
In the depth of the layers of my emotions
Stormy
Fiery
Wounded
Anxious
Frightened
Weakened
Shattered
Weeping
In the layers of my emotions
I find you
Wrapping my feelings
Of hurt, pain and tears
In your love
Healing them one by one
Curing them
Layer by layer
In each emotion
of me
I find you in me
And then emotions cease to appear
I feel you and love
In me

Apart from deep love this poem has a therapeutic angle of recognizing and labeling emotions.
'I am anxious' and 'I am feeling anxious' have slightly different meanings. When we say, I am anxious, we are telling ourselves that me is anxious while it's an emotion and not the thorough representation of me. I am feeling anxious means right now I have this feeling of anxiousness due to some reason. This feeling isn't permanent and it will go once I work on resolving the issue causing it. This lessens the intensity of emotion and we begin to heal.

Spiritually we can call it as Saakshi Bhaava -- looking at your emotions from a distance. My Aatma is me and not this emotion is me.

Psychology Today has explained how labeling emotions works with research results: Why Labeling Emotions Matters

Poem: The Life Me To You

I'm talking with you
Even when
I'm not talking with you
I am writing to you
Even when
I am not writing to you
I am thinking about you
Even when
I am not thinking about you
I am walking towards you
Though I don't look walking.
I am not living
Even though I am living without you
I have been waiting for you
With the faith in love
That is also
You...

Poem:Your Soul In Your Eyes

Wrote this poem a few days back.

Your eyes give me smile
Your eyes give me life
Your eyes give me hopes
Your eyes make me sing
Songs for your smiling eyes 
But when
Pains
Sorrows
Wounds
Griefs
Touch your godly eyes
When
I see them living in your eyes
I lose my voice
I lose the life in my eyes
I tremble
I feel fear conquering me
I lose all my strength
And my smile die
Your eyes have to smile
To give smiles
All my power of love
Is breathing for your smiling eyes
Your eyes speak the language of love
With me
I read them
I listen them
I speak with them
I met you
When I read tides of heartaches in your eyes
I felt them
They reached me through your eyes
Your soul in your eyes
I feel touches my soul
I feel that that I don't understand
For soul is beyond mind
And definitions of love
Mind never breaks the confinements of the world
But soul isn't confined in them
Soul touches another soul
The bond of you and me
Is soul of you and me
Which is that sacred 'One'

Poem:What Else?

Some lines trying to express Bhaktiyoga.

You are my belief
What else now I believe?
You are my faith
What else now I worship?
You are my life
What else now I live for?
You are my thoughts
What else now I think about?
You are my dream
What else now I dream about?
You are my answer
What else I question now
You've become my everything
What else I seek now?

Poem: The Light In Your Eyes

The shining light in your eyes
When you were born
The light and eyes that told the world,
"I will conquer everything
By love and only love"
The light in your eyes
that mesmerizes everyone
The light that fades all other external light sources
Never let that light dim for any reason
Shine with this light more and more
This light
This love
Every day and every moment of life
Forever, my beloved!
Shine with them
Your happiness soothes me
Your light heals me
Your eyes gives smiles to me
Your preciousness in my life
gives life to me
Your precious presence
Heal my wounded mind
Shine with the love and light
Live with the love and light
Love to you
Love for you
Love to your light
Every day and night
Shine, shine, shine
My beloved!
Shine always!

Through my eyes?

So many sorrows
To tear
Let's meet, my dear!
Let's whisper the love
Nobody can hear!

Prayer: Solace In God

Today's poem is a simple prayer to the God.

The old black and white film of Meeraji, in which Meeraji's role is played by M.S.Subbulakshmi, is very close to my heart. I can't watch it without crying. Her simple yet innate love for lord Krishna is so purifying and celestial. It mesmerizes me to see how Meeraji would compose songs for Krishna in her sorrows and happiness. She couldn't see anything else than her Krishna. The story about her I know is that she melted in Lord Krishna and not died like humans. I don't know how true this is. But sometimes when I go to the Vitthala temple, I feel the same way to dissolve myself in the love of Lord Krishna forever.
How sad her life was despite being such a devotional person and how all the cruellest things would happen with her and still how she would keep worshiping her Krishna with her undeviating love. Her love was pure like dew drops but her own people couldn't see it. She was above all the wars happening in that era. But for small issues of her devotion, she was hated. How can anybody hate Meeraji! Even in modern days Meeraji's great devotion and rebellion devotion isn't recognized much.

Poem: Angelic

There is so much to learn from Mother Nature art, joy, nature's very own festivity and of course love. We can see love in its purest forms in nature, birds, trees, flower, snow, waterfalls, stars, moon and the sun. Here's a little dedication to Mother Nature.

Love like infinite skies
Smile like angelic flowers
Sing like sweet cuckoos
Fly like liberated birds
Live life like Mother Nature
Happy, bright and loving

Poem: Conquering The Mind

When I feel overwhelmed by thoughts or issues CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) helps me to check the validity of thoughts to create positive and rational thoughts. Earlier I used to maintain a thought journal to identify distorted thoughts and replace them. Then it was ingrained in life. But for past few days, it was again difficult to manage thoughts and feelings. I again learned, unlearned, improved, corrected many things about the mind with CBT.

Poem: The Golden Heart Which I Hold Dear

It's not the worldly glitter
The golden heart it is which I hold dear
The heart with the innocence of a child
hidden in a golden heart
The innocent heart feeling lonely
In the world who loves him
The heart lives burying tears
But giving smiles and laughter to the world
The honest eyes speaking those hidden sorrows even in loud laughter
The innocent eyes who smile to love the world
The sweet mind that innovates paths to spread love
The supersonic brain that never rests
The soft heart hard world always wants to wound
I hold dear you
Not the worldly glitter
Glitter shines and fades
But light of that heart never dims
Which I hold so dear
Never fades
I'll love you
For your light
For your love
For your innocence
For your purity
For everything, you did and doing!
I don't measure, judge, question
Your love
It starts where material world ends
I don't measure you in terms of material world
You begin where material measurements end
I don't measure you
I love you
That unmeasurable
That unjudgeable
That unquestionable
That close to you
All I want is to love you
I will never want the beautiful world
Which don't have you

Poem: Flower of Life

Birthday for me is a prayer day and gratitude day to the God. Gratitude for this gift of beautiful life. Some heartfelt words on my birthday... 

The flower of life
This song of life
My song of my life
Sung but unheard
Living but unseen
The life song of
a caged
innocent
isolated
wounded
soul
dedicating to dear God
since the day it was born
every day it lives
blooms or gets crushed
till the time timeless
till the age ageless
caged or free
wounded or healed
delicate or strong
whichever turn life takes
the way it is 
as it is
this song of life
dedicating to dear God

Highway, Lord Shriram and Me - The Story Continued...

After a gap of 4 months, last Monday, finally I could enjoy the freedom of driving down my favorite Mumbai-Agra highway (NH3). Remember my poem highway,  Miss those days?

Last Monday, I didn't have those blues that come with Monday. Perhaps other blues had occupied my mind. I had decided to go to Rokdoba temple in Arvi village, Dhule. 

With warm sunshine, with the winter kind Sun blessing from the sky, with the happy soft wind caressing me along the way, I began my journey.
