On the difficult days, when the world is on your shoulders, remember that diamonds are made under the weight of mountains!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S not be burdened with the weight of difficulties...
Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be....
Do this today...
Christmas is not about opening presents, like a candle, it shine more at Christmas.
At Christmas, I take less than what I need and I'll give you more than I can.
I'm not growing in celebrating Christmas but I know one thing
The best meaning of Christmas what you have please
A sense of abundance is experienced when giving. During
this season of giving many feel more joy giving than receiving. There is love put into the gift selection or hand-made creation, in the wrapping and each step of the process. Giving love practically through my actions makes me happy.
Today let me remember i am happiest when i give love.
अंधेरों की तरह
रौशनी जब सूख जाती है
चाँद बुझ जाता है
पहाड़ जैसे मन को
पिघला कर बना देती है समंदर
हिमालय कभी समंदर ही था
वहाँ से कोई याद
चली गई होगी
शायद वो इसलिए बन सका पहाड़ ...
पहाड़, समंदर और देवदार के कुछ पेड़
कुछ लिख के मिटाये हुए तुम्हारे नाम
कुछ कुछ रह जाता है
कुछ कुछ क्यों आता है ?
ऐसे ही दबे पाँव
और उगा जाता है भँवर
जिसमें डूब जाता है सब
हिमालय भी और समंदर भी...
रह जाती है
“Once upon a time, when women were birds, there was the simple understanding that to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy. The birds still remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant to be celebrated.”

I am a Reader
Not because i dont have life.
But because i choose to have many. - unknown
By the way, do you know the joys of being alone, walking alone, lying in the sun alone?
-Letters to Felice
Each soul is an actor who plays their own part. I cannot change someone else's part nor can they change mine. Comparisons are a waste.
Today let me play my own part well.
In a field
I am the absence
always the case.
Wherever I am
I am what is missing.
When I walk
I part the air
the air moves in
to fill the spaces
where my body’s been.
We all have reasons
to keep things whole.
- Mark Strand, Poems
Once upon a time,
there was a forgotten tune.
She would bind them together;
in a gaze held forever
or a kiss longingly deep.
She carried a melody,
reminiscent of an absent traveller
trapped in a sunset,
wrapped in distant-blues
as antiquated memories,
she would whisper
secrets hidden inside trees -
a gush of wind,
an evening lullaby.
Keep peace in the mind, love in the heart and happiness in relationships. Joy is an expression of a peaceful mind that is filled with light and a heart that is filled with love. Today let me give joy to the world.
Wishing you a very happy birthday Drew .... May God shower his choicest blessings on to you always..
Hope is the ability to hear the music of the future
Faith is the courage to dance to it today
Make it great one!!
I secretly admiring you
The feeling of great happiness is created by giving. Giving is the greatest protection from fear. Economic breakdown causes people to grab, to take what they can out of fear and giving is lost, minimized or turned into a business. It is time to give. When I give, fear finishes. Today let me protect myself from fear by giving.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S drive hate out with love...
Everything has value in a context. In the desert water has high value. In a cold climate, heat is of great value. At this time in the world what has the greatest value? Peace, honesty, kindness. When I understand the context I can see what is of greatest value.
Today let me add value to the world.

God's love is like an ocean. You can see its beginning but not its end!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S experience God's infinite love...
People were created to be loved.
Things were created to be used.
The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S use things and love people...
"I" is the smallest word in the dictionary. Don't make it the biggest in your vocabulary!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S change our vocabulary...
What is in my heart is visible on my face. When my heart is filled with love, my face is filled with love, it radiates love and invites love. The softness in my eyes helps soften the edges of hard situations and the hearts of others.
Today let me have love in my heart so it is visible on my face.
Peace is being quiet inside. Peace is a calm and relaxed state of mind. Peace consists of pure thoughts, pure feelings and good wishes. Peace begins within each one of us. If everyone in the world were peaceful, this would be a peaceful world.
Today let me be peace.
"Man, sometimes it take you a long time to sound like yourself." ~Miles Davis~
When I listen to the music inside my heart, I will learn to play it. Rather than playing the music of the outside world, the art of living is to play my own music - to sound like myself.
Today let me listen to my inner music and begin to sound like myself.
And why are you so quiet now
Standing there in the doorway?
You chose your journey long before
You came upon this highway
Trav'ling lady, stay awhile
Until the night is over
I’m just a station on your way
I know I’m not your lover
- I Love this Song by Winter Lady_Leonard Cohen
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S keep giving...
“The sea is not less beautiful in our eyes because we know that sometimes ships are wrecked by it.”

“What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it's curved like a road through mountains.”
― Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire
Home is where my story starts.
The home of the soul is peace.
The pathway home is invisible and internal and
can only be found through intention and concentration.
Today let me focus inwards and find my way home to peace.
Good things come to people who wait, but better things come to those who go out and get them!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S make better things happen...
There was a change
In the way you breathe
I couldn’t believe
You would change for me
And if you hear the sound
Of shooting stars
Protect your heart ‘cause it burns back…
